read your horoscope and see if its true. do the same for the horoscopes of other people. but usually, horoscopes give such general statements and naturally anticipated events, it seems to predict the future. try also going to different astrologers and try to check their predictions. typically, different astrologers have different predictions.

Answer by Captain Mephisto
A general sort of experiment would be to use a sample group of say 100 astrologers (I picked that number at random but it seems like it would give you a good sample of astrologers) and ask them the same set of questions (but don’t explain anything to them about your experiment). Check the results against actual events and see how good they do. For example, take a football game, team A against team B. If more or less random then approximately 50 percent might guess the winning team (within some error limits of course). But if say 75 or 80 percent of astologers accurately predict the results of your questions then maybe there is something to their predictions (or the questions were biased in some way that allowed them to make a better guess than just random guessing). So pick a set of astrologers, create a good set of questions and then get the answers and do a little bit of math and see how they do.

Astrology predicts nothing.

Answer by help???
When I did learn about it, (don’t d it anymore) I found I always saw my past in it, but not as a predictor, just a possibility issue, of cognitive thought, *referencing towards other issues, like love life, healthy & jobs,so I choose not to use it to influence myself or others any longer, Deals with/the planets, and energies they give off (as it is taught), *specifically *where they are/were placed, at he moment of exact birth time, gives/gave insights, I no longer wish to explore. *But, like I say, “no more” not my thing to mess with anymore.

In the beginning of Liz Greene’s (famous prolific author on astrology), “Astrology for Lover’s” book there is a good chapter on What astrology can and can’t do.
“Astrology is baffling because it works. What it’s not is a way of foretelling the future, or of determining whether that tall dark stranger will turn up next week. To put it briefly the horoscope is a map of the psyche of the individual. it’s a kind of blueprint, a seed plan, a model of the energies and drives which make up a person. Because it’s calculated precisely for time and place, it’s unique, unlike the sun sign column. Even identical twins are born at least four minutes apart, and in four minutes the picture has shifted.”

“Astrology can be used to help you in many ways. It can reveal damaging behavioral patterns or forewarn you of upcoming challenges. It can help you pinpoint latent talents you may possess and provide you with specific hints on how to best develop them. Astrology can also point out expansive, rewarding trends that are coming up and assist you in figuring out how to take advantage of them before they fade. Finally, astrology is an excellent means to determine the perfect timing for certain actions.

The beauty of astrology is that it will help you to always be in complete control of your life. Astrology is not fortune telling: but it is a recognition that we have free will. We know we are not controlled by the planets, but the planets do create a certain atmospheres of constriction or ease, that keeps us on our toes. Alas, you cannot blame the planets and say, for example, Saturn made me do it! The few times I have said this to an audience, most people laugh it does sound funny.

The planets work to help us help ourselves. By applying pressure, planets help us to overcome inertia. At other times, they help us to see unproductive or even self-destructive behavior that we may have never noticed before but that we can fix. Astrologers believe we must be accountable for our actions and to recognize that we do have choices. The study of astrology will help you sort out all your options and to act at the proper time.”

    Astrology can predict trends in the future, but there’s always the question of free will and what the individual will choose to do with what’s being presented to them. As far as predicting what’s going on with you, that takes more work (and probably more charts…I’ll confess I didn’t look at the link) than you might realize. Pay an astrologer, or get a free reading online. astro.com has one that’ll give you a 6-month forecast, but I can’t remember what it’s called. If you go to the free reading section, you’ll find it though.
