Astrology is a system of knowledge that interprets the connection between heavenly phenomena and events on earth. The article discusses the relationship between astrology and astronomy, the separation of those two systems of knowledge after the eighteenth century, as well as the polemical exclusion of astrology from the accepted systems of knowledge, including the discursive impact this marginalization has had on the study of religion and culture. It is argued that alternative, even if incommensurable, systems of knowledge need to be accepted as equally valid expressions of the human mind. ⸙
