Astronomy vs Astrology

Reanna Cardona

Astronomy is the study of constellations and planets though both involve space, astronomy and astrology are not the same. Astronomy is the study of science that includes celestial objects and space. Astrology is the belief that the positioning of the stars effects events that occur on earth.

Celestial objects refer to plants like Earth, Jupiter, the moon (not considered a planet) and the Milky Way, which go under astronomy. Astronomy and Astrology deal with beliefs such as the zodiac signs. Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius as examples along with predicting future events.
