As Joseph Crane rightfully quoted, “Astrology, the Science of the Stars is one of the great adventures of human civilization and has contributed greatly to people’s lives and to our culture over time.

Astrology is a system that enables us to understand the past, present and the future within a universe full of meaning.”
