Identifying painters and politicians: a commentary on astrology as art and science

Bagley, Chris (1999) Identifying painters and politicians: a commentary on astrology as art and science Correlation: Journal of Research into Astrology, 18, (1), pp. 32-39.

Record type: Article


A recent article in Correlation is criticised for applying an inappropriate methodology in attempting to verify astrological accounts of human motivation. It is argued that astrology can offer only partial explanations of human motivation and behaviour, just as no single variable identified by social and psychological science can explain such behaviour with any more than partial success. Two case histories from a longitudinal study illustrate the complexity of making predictions, and explaining human behaviour. The potential role for astrology and astrological counseling in this process is discussed.
