Will Astrology Be Proved By Science?

Dear Eric:


Do you think astrology will ever be proven by science?

Dear John,


Astrology came first. When people attempt to mix astrology and science I am always reminded of things like whether technicians will be able to prove that a painting is beautiful or that a symphony is emotionally moving. And let's say they can. Who really cares? Why do people need to have proof of everything? Proof is not a substitute for faith, or for imagination. If you ask me what makes astrology significant is whether it is personally meaningful to an individual. Astrology also does something that is beyond the reach of orthodox science: it deals with unique situations. By definition, something must be replicable in order to be established by science, and the best things in life happen just once. Astrology is mysticism. It is about curiosity. It is part of the search for meaning in life; thank God something is.
