The difference between astrology and astronomy is roughly the difference between religion and spirituality. Religion asks us to take its postulates on faith, spirituality requires us to know what we know. Religion asks us to believe its theology and doctrines, which are collections of opinions and convictions, while spirituality tells us to see what we look at and to trust ourselves to recognize what needs to be done and do it in each situation as it arises. Religion is about believing. Spirituality is about knowing. Religion is theoretical. Spirituality is practical. Religion is abstract. Spirituality is of the earth and rivers, darkness and light. Religion is made up. Spirituality is recognized/realized. Religion is from the top down, and outside in. Spirituality is from the bottom up, and inside out. Religion is artificial. Spirituality is natural. Religion is inorganic. Spirituality is organic. Religion is of the head. Spirituality is of the heart and spirit. We have to get religion. We have to be spiritual. Those who believe, believe different things. Those who know, know the same things. And that's pretty much that.
