Astrology researchers are caught between polar opposite views.
Astrology’s most sceptical critics insist on ‘irrefutable empirical proof’ before they can entertain the possibility of a connection between the celestial and the terrestrial.
Astrologers of a mystical persuasion see researchers as desperate to prove astrology. They say, “Why try to impress our critics? They have already made up their minds. Astrology does not need proof.”
These extreme positions do little to improve our understanding of science and astrology.
