What is astrology?

Astrology is a science dealing with celestial bodies and analyzing their interaction. Celestial bodies are the moon, the sun, the planets and the ascendants as well as asteroids, comets or stars. Astrology tries to find out how cosmic activities influence the human nature and certain events, in short how they affect life on earth.

Astrology is often regarded as a pseudoscience as it is based more on traditions and beliefs while in contrast astronomy is an empirical science relying on facts. The word itself comes from the Greek language and literally translated it means "Science of the Stars".

Astrological signs

Astrology uses many different signs to represent celestial events. Among these astrological signs are the symbols for the zodiac. The zodiac is divided into 12 sections and each one is characterized by an astrological sign, starting with Aries and ending with Pisces. Each of these astrological signs stands for a basic personality type.

Astrological symbols are also used for planets, e.g., for Mercury or Venus, furthermore for lunar phases, such as new or full moon as well as for astrological aspects describing the angles from one planet to the other.

Moreover, there are additional astrological signs for other cosmic bodies and events, e.g., for comets, asteroids or ascendants.

Problem with the use of astrological signs

Astrology is a very complex but interesting science, full of a multitude of signs and symbols. Astrologers invest much time and effort in studying all these cosmic phenomena and consequently want to write down their results.

And that's the point, where many astrologers have difficulties. If you want to insert an astrological symbol or sign via your computer keyboard - how and where can you find them?
