There are many of us who consider astrology as a superstition and not really a science. But the accuracy of some of the predictions that astrologers have made is what makes astrology an art which can be used to predict what may probably happen in the nearby future. The positions of the stars, planets and other celestial bodies help decide astrologers about the future. Certain movements of the stars and planets have been observed to have an effect on us. There have been many instances when we felt situations were beyond our control, our words were misconstrued and an important message failed to reach its destination. Mercury retrograde was considered to be the main reason behind this mayhem. Mercury, the planet of communication was observed to have an impact on our lives. Many a times astrological predictions have proven to be eerily accurate. The art of astrology helps astrologers acquire information about a person’s personality, strength and weaknesses. The zodiac is the belt of constellations through which the Sun, the Moon and the planets transit across the sky. There are many passionate believers of astrology who feel that the future can indeed be predicted by studying the position of the Sun, the Moon and the planets.
