What is Astrology?
The History of Astrology
This kind of astrology is called 'Mundane' Astrology today (Now is the time/Age of Aquarius), I personally don't know who called what back then (Except when manuscript states it). The ancient Egyptians are also known to have used 'Mundane' astrology, which is very evident (and which I will post more about later on).
'Mundane' astrology is a 'Bigger' view of our enormous universe, meaning; Today people mostly use 'Natal astrology' which consider the 12 zodiac signs in their 12 houses, and the aspect in between.
But our heavens are much bigger than this, and the ancient astrologers knew this too, and they created stories/myths about some of them.
This 'Bigger' picture where/is used for making for predicting astrology, around world issues.
Astrology is only considered 'evil' through religions eyes when it is used for 'predicting' and other 'black arts'.
But to follow the stars from a boat, or studying the constellations, is viewed as 'okay' though religions eyes (or at least all religious texts seems to have no trouble in talking about them, themselves.)
What is astrology: It is a gift!
A tool which is so ancient that it is timeless, no clock, or other earthly device can judge another planets time and such. Astrology is watching the heavens above the blue heaven, watching Orion passing the horizon.
Astrology can tell if you are a morning star or an evening star.

the Hunter, is probably the most recognizable Constellation image:
It has always been known as a star image for it self, the 'Belt' or Orion is the most visible of this star image.
In ancient Egyptian manuscripts Orion
(/Osiris, Could be that, when one was alive one had one name,like Osiris, and when one died one was called Orion - Just a Thought).
But overall Orion is thought of as a Hunter of the Night heavens.
Centaurs Also known as Chiron
In old Greek myths, Chiron was mentioned quiet often. Chiron was a Centurion, half human, half horse.
back then they were mostly viewed as being mean, deadly and Brutal, Chiron was NOT like the other Centurions, Chiron was a different Centurions, He was an embodiment of wisdom and the teacher for men like Jason and Hercules.
In Greek mythology: Chiron, was wounded by Hercules. Though he was immortal, it is said that he invented medicine in order to heal himself.
He taught Asclepius the art of healing, which became the source of all divine medical knowledge among the Greeks.
Chiron was also the teacher of the hero, Achilles, who was thought to have had some special medical knowledge.
