Astronomy vs Astrology

Sep 18, 2016

This is one that people often seem to confuse, despite their being extremely different. Astronomy, simply put, is the study of objects in space – like stars, galaxies and planets. Astrology is the interpretation of how the movement of celestial bodies might affect the lives of people. When someone comments ”you’re very curious, you must Aquarius” – they’re talking about astrology. When someone says  “lets get out the telescope and look at the moon” – that’s a reference to astronomy 🙂
