What's the difference between astrology and astronomy?

I think that the main difference between the two is how they work and what they’re trying to predict :thinking: I don’t actually know enough about astrology to say precisely what the goal of it is, though

@Discussions ~ what do you think the difference is?

Astrology is more about spirituality and myth

Astronomy is more of a science and studies the physical aspects of space

Astrology inclines more towards spirituality (somewhat abstract) while astronomy inclines more towards science (somewhat concrete).
You may have heard of the saying, “Spirituality and Science are two sides of a coin.” Both astronomy and astrology try to find answers in different ways.

Astronomy is related to studying the celestial objects and related phenomena such as black holes, planets, stars, galaxies etc whereas astrology is related to studying how those celestial objects affect the people and our “known” world.
