Hi, I'm Jenny Lynch and I'm here to tell you how astrology works. Now, in the beginning, astrologers in Mesopotamia looked up at the sky and then they looked and they saw the events down on earth and they began to see astrology is a law of correspondence. So above, so below. Then when they tried to make astrology a little bit more scientific, Ptolemy started saying that, no, it's causal. So if you think about the moon and the effect it has on the tides then you can understand that they were thinking that the planets themselves will have the same effect on us.

And then finally Jung came in and decided, well, he coined the term synchronicity because it meant that a couple of things were happening all at once and so what you had then is a correlation of what's going on inside and it's reflected on what's going on outside. So, to day, astrologers still it's a point of contention. They still don't all agree on how astrology works.
