Hand, Robert – Why is it So Difficult to Prove Astrology?

For years now research astrologers have been using increasingly sophisticated techniques to bring forward scientific evidence for the truth of astrology. Yet aside from the Gauquelin material, little has been found. And even the Gauquelin results are largely ignored by those who would debunk astrology. Why should this be the case when the truth of astrology is so evident to those of us who practice it? What is there about astrology and the processes of doing astrology that makes it difficult to “prove” it? Is it just a case of “for those who believe, no evidence is necessary; for those who do not, no evidence is sufficient”? This lecture offers some explanations which may help us to understand this problem.
