Why do people believe in horoscope? Can astrology explain everything including our financial status?
Astrology is a pseudoscience that professes to divine, godlike information about human affairs and terrestrial events by studying the movement, and relative positions of celestial objects. Astrology has been dated to BCE (Before Common Eras) and is rooted in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications. Throughout most of its history, astrology was considered a scholarly tradition as well as it being common in academic circles such as astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine. It was also popular and present in political circles and mentioned in various works of literature, included that of William Shakespeare. Nowadays, astrology has receded as the practice has grabbed a foothold in online culture, especially for young people. Many people look at their daily, monthly, and yearly horoscopes to direct them in decision making or to just tell them about they are feeling. Horoscope reading has extended to ones about one’s financing. Especially to those who are wondering about what is in store for them in the upcoming year and what they can expect. According to astrology, my sign is Leo. My financial horoscope reads that, as of this year (2020), my “cash inflow seems to be quite stable, and everything seems to be going as it should.” “Although the period may not bring in grand changes, it is good to have things go smoothly once in a while.” “Since the period from mid-February till March 5 seems to be dicey, avoid making any big plans in terms of expenses.” ” Postpone making major decisions about investments during this time frame, as well.” I do not believe in horoscopes but what I do trust is the economics of financing. Although finance and economics are often taught and presented as separate disciplines, economics and finance are interrelated and inform and influence each other. Investors care about both financing and economics because they influence the markets greatly. In general, talking to either a financial advisory or keeping up with the current economic status can reveal stress or guide us, to making a decision on whether to invest in something or purchase. Economics is back up by data that can assure us of our decisions.
