┬╗ Astrology is the folklore that arose from watching alignments in the night sky and the belief that these "celestial events" controlled human events. A 1960's folk song, "The Age of Aquarius" has numerous astrology references that relate to the positions of objects in the sky. The song has a line: "When the moon is in the 7th house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars, then peace will guide the planet..."

┬╗ Axial precession is sometimes called the precession of equinoxes because it results in a gradual shift, relative to the celestial background, of the position where the sun crosses the celestial equator at the equinox. Astrology is a mythology based on things like your "sign" which refers to the position of the sun in the celestial zodiac (the 12 constellations along the ecliptic) on your birthday. This system was established almost two thousand years ago. If this mythology were true (and you believe your horoscope) can you use the dates for your "sign" based on this 2000 year old system?
┬╗ The signs of the zodiac used in astrology refer to the constellations that lie along the plane of the ecliptic.
