Many individuals turn to astrology as a source of self-reflection and personal insight. They believe that their astrological birth chart, which is created based on the positions of celestial bodies at the time of their birth, can provide insights into their personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses.
Astrology is often used to assess compatibility between individuals, particularly in romantic relationships. People may consult astrologers or use online tools to compare their birth charts to see if they are astrologically compatible with a potential partner.
Astrology is sometimes used to make decisions about the timing of important life events, such as starting a business, getting married, or making significant career changes.
Many people read daily horoscopes to gain insights into the day ahead and make minor decisions based on the advice or predictions provided in their horoscope. These predictions are typically generalized and may not have a scientific basis.
The scientific community widely dismisses astrology as pseudoscience, as there is no empirical evidence to support its claims.
