Astrology, having existed for more than 3000 years, can consider itself to be the elder sister of psychology.
Both disciplines concern themselves with the psyche. As with astrology, there are different branches and schools of psychology. Some prefer scientific approaches - if this is possible with the complexity of the human psyche - and others follow holistic or alternative concepts. These latter approaches often display parallels to astrology and combine easily with it. Among them is Carl Gustav Jung's Analytical Psychology.
His and other psychological schools will be introduced in the section Astrology and Psychology. We will attempt to highlight their similarities.
