Using astrology

Studying the influence of the stars and planets on human affairs and planning actions for suitable times.
Astrology takes a variety of forms: (a) the study of the periodical influences of celestial dynamics, and of physical bodies, such as planets, comets and stars, on human animal, or plant growth and behaviour, through the changes induced in the Earth or its atmosphere, or directly in organic systems, by agencies such as light and other electro-magnetic forces, or by gravity, or by cosmic or other radiation, or by other energies, or effects of space-time alternations or changes; (b) the study of the positions, configurations and movements of celestial phenomena as symbolic, acausal correspondences to terrestrial phenomena; (c) the doctrine that the celestial bodies are ruled by super-human beings who, in their various movements and mutual aspects, determine historical cycles, rulerships and personal life patterns on Earth; (d) a species of popular journalism in which is predicted on the basis of nativity in a particular sign (degree of sun in tropical zodiac) the daily outlook for each of the twelve 'types' of person; and (e) a species of fortune-telling based on one's 'horoscope' (actual or symbolic).
Astrology is a reflection of human awareness of purposiveness in personal and social history and of laws governing the unfolding of these purposes. Astrology provides a philosophy of life that integrates man with nature, so that harmony is to be sought by knowledge of the cycles and intervals that are appropriate to human actions.
Counter Claim:
Astrology evades responsibility for one's actions and their consequences, demeaning personal integrity.
