In this work three questions are examined concerning astrology. The first of these deals with the dispute over its validity. Arguments from both sides of this debate are presented and discussed. The second question involves the appeal of astrology. Several ideas about why astrology is increasingly popular in modern culture are explored. The last question is whether or not astrology should be perceived as potentially harmful. Again several notions about this are discussed. In the end it is concluded by the author that astrology and its claims do not seem to be validated, that the reasons for its appeal are complex and that its growing popularity is, in fact, potentially harmful.
