Notes When you think of astrology, you may think of the horoscope section in your newspaper. Yet almost every religion uses some form of astrology: some way of thinking about the sun, moon, stars, and planets and how they hold significance for human lives on earth. Astrology and Cosmology in the World's Religionsoffers an accessible overview of the astrologies of the world's religions, placing them into context within theories of how the wider universe came into being and operates.
