What is the difference between academic astrology and other areas, which has become so popular in the last decades?
(Astrology compatibility) is the branch of astrology that studies love, friendship or working relationships between different zodiacs by comparing their natal horoscopes. Also, it helps to understand how your “nearest environment” (best friends, family, etc) influence on the development of personality.
(traditionally known as iatromathematics) is an ancient medical system that associates various parts of the body, diseases, and drugs as under the influence of the sun, moon, and planets. Key points: adjustment of diet, the day's routine (to establish a set schedule for your day), physical activity and other aspects related to human health.
also known as event astrology, is a branch found in most traditions of astrology in which a practitioner decides the most appropriate time for an event based on the Astrology auspiciousness of that time. Electional astrologers seek to find a period of time which will result in the most preferable outcome for the event being planned.
or astrometeorology is the practice of applying the Astrology/astronomical placements of the Sun, Moon, and planets to attempt to forecast the weather. According to the texts of ancient classical astrologers, when planets occupy constellations as seen from Earth, and that are harmonious to one another, or that are favorable, the Earth in general experiences positive weather conditions.

Perihelion Astrology University grew out of the non-profit international organization Perihelion, which was originally the place where professional astrologers shared their research insights . Later this group of the most competent and respected astrologers developed their own knowledge base. In order to promote the knowledge of academic astrology to the masses, we have decided to found Perihelion Astrology University. In addition to education, its functions also include revelation of self-taught astrologers who work without real evidence, trick people and defame astrology with their incorrect predictions.
Like any science, astrology can be studied independently or in specialized educational institutions.
According to the quotation of Dmitri Mendeleev (the creator of Periodic table): Science begins when it measures. Thus, astrology is a humanitarian science with its subject of study, methodology, consistency, principles of provability and testability. Unfortunately, amateurs engaged in the field of academic astrology who hasn't got basic knowledge caused significant damage to its reputation , but we intend to change this situation by teaching as many people as possible.
Indeed, astrologers can be wrong but , most of the mistakes are made by amateur astrologers. On the other hand, even the knowledge of academic astrology does not make it possible to predict events with 100% probability. But It is common for any field of human knowledge. Medicine is one of the most ancient and developed science, but you can still hear about the cases of people being misdiagnosed.
Zodiac signs are not equal to zodiac constellations. Zodiac signs are 30 degrees stretches of the eclyptics counted from the point of the vernal equinox (the tropical zodiac). 360:12=30.
When they counted signs for the first time about 2 thousands years ago, they were named after the nearest constellations. As for the Ophiuchus, even at those far times ancient astrologers realized that the ecliptics crossed more than 12 constellations. But this fact does not increase the number of zodiac signs, because the chosen 12 signs were picked through different reasons.
By the way, due to procession zodiacs have notably shifted from the same name constellations, but stiil they keep their properties. That`s the source of “sensations” like the discovery of a new sign or speculations about differences between ancient and modern zodiac signs.
A professional astrologer is first of all a research scientist. The most common way to check someone`s skills and proficiency is to see diplomas. If you need astrological advice make sure about the seriousness of the astrologer about his activity and your issues. A real astrologer would never try to intimidate his client nor to create a mystical and confusing situation. If he does, just go away because you`ve caught a bad break to meet a charlatan or a mentally disabled person.
The astrologic era (age) is a prolonged period of time (which lasts for about 2160 years) when the Sun is projected in a certain zodiac constellation on the vernal equinox. The precession of the Earth`s axis causes displacement of this point in the ecliptics at the speed of 50,3 arc sec per year, thus moving it from one zodiac constellation to another. Constellations vary in duration resulting in different durations of corresponding ages. The age of Pisces we are living today is characterized by the origin and development of Christianity. The age of Aquarius will be coming in the XXIIst century. It will be determined by a synthesis of various religions and scientific progress .
Astrology events may be set in compliance with personal life events. Thus, an astrologer calculates astrological events (the calculations are determined by planets motion facing possible technical difficulties) and treats them in line with the individual events in question. It`s highly important to choose appropriate celestial events for a certain types of astrological charts. Thus, to calculate a global chart (dealing with the global economy, policy, etc.) they consider slow planets motion in zodiac signs and their mutual aspects. A personal chart needs correlation of the current celestial events with the birth chart. A short-term issue may be checked by a horary chart in which current celestial events are treated as an instant issue reflection.
"That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong."
