Should Astrology be believed?

The science of genetics points out that the traits of the basis of our personality traits is formed not at birth but at the moment of conception when one of the millions of sperm cells from the father fertilizes the egg cell from the mother.  Yet astrology fixes one’s horoscope at the moment of birth.   The difference of about nine months would give one a completely different personality profile in the astrological terms. The moment of birth is not significant in any way. The personality of each individual is more or less fixed through the hereditary factors at the time of conception and the early childhood environment. The culture and the geography influences one personality too.

 What has planets or for that matter anything else to do with the personality development of an individual?

Further more why should the influence of one planet be good while another’s is bad or evil? Today we know through detailed analysis and scientific study that all the planets are basically masses of lifeless rocks or gases hurtling in space. What influence can these have on humans born on one of such planets?  

Well, but astrology is thriving today. More and more people flock to the astrologers and their charts  to know about themselves and about their future
