Astrology consists of a number of belief systems which hold that there is arelationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human worldWestern astrology is largely horoscopic, that is, it is a form of divination basedon the construction of a horoscope for an exact moment, such as a personsbirth. It is founded on the movements and relative positions of celestial bodiessuch as the Sun, Moon, planets, which are analyzed by their aspects (angles)relative to one another. These are usually considered by their placement inhouses and their movement through signs of the zodiacIndian astrology uses a different commencement point to its 12-fold division ofthe zodiac than Western astrology but retains the same names and meaningsfor the signs and shares many of the same traditional principles
Originated by Babylonians about 1000 BC (applies to the world)Greeks developed natal (birth) astrology (2nd century AD)Argues that a persons character and destiny can be understood from thepositions of the Sun, Moon, and planets at the moment of his or her birth.

Plot of Adolf Hitler s horoscopeBRITISH intelligence during the second world war flooded the world ofastrology with fake horoscopes in an attempt to influence Hitler.Propaganda weapon by the Special Operations Executive (SOE), set upby Winston Churchill to sabotage the Third Reich.Hitler was known to be interested in astrology.On early 1923 he had taken a prediction that a man with his birth datewould sweep to powerHis astrologer Karl Krafft, a Swiss astrologer, warned him of darkpowers at work in November 1939. Hitler ignored the warning andattended an anniversary celebration of the putsch in the beer hall,leaving just before a bomb exploded, killing eight people.British agents decided to exploit Hitler’s interest in the stars byinserting bogus horoscopes in newspapers around the world.It was hoped that it would undermine Hitler’s authority and cause himto doubt his own decision-making ability.Astrologer Louis de Wohl recruited by British Intelligence during theSecond World War to second-guess and counter the work of HitlersAstrologer, Karl Ernst Krafft to outwit Hitler. A Colonial Office file kept secret for 63 years shows that Charles Hambro, deputy director of SOE, introduced the plan.
Major Leslie Sheridan, an SOE operative, provides Colonial the “accurate” data on which to predict the dictator’s downfall.Hitler’s birth time of 6.30pm on April 20, 1889, made him a Taurus by a few hours. As his birthday approached in1941, Neptune would be in opposition to his birth sign. Sheridan wrote: “Neptunian fate is always mysterious, usually violent and full of conspiratorial danger from closest associates. Agents were dispatched to spread the word in Turkey, Egypt, Singapore and West Africa. Sir Geoffrey Northcote, the British governor of Hong Kong, entered into the spirit of the plot, briefing a Chinese contact who arranged for the prediction to emerge from a planchette message — a type of séance — at a Chinese temple in Macao. This was passed to ******* news agency, which filed a dispatch reporting the prediction that Hitler would suffer a great reverse in the second half of 1941 and die in 1942. Unbeknown to the British, however, Hitler had lost some of his faith in stargazers after Rudolf Hess, his deputy, had used astrological charts to plan a flight to Britain that ended with him being incarcerated for the rest of his life. Krafft later died of typhoid on the eve of being sent to Buchenwald concentration camp. However, Shelley von Strunckel, the Sunday Times astrologer, said: “It appears Hitler ignored his astrologer anyway. Krafft was arrested after the beer hall bomb on suspicion of being involved. Talk about shooting the messenger.” Nicholas Campion, editor of the Astrological Association’s historical journal Culture and Cosmos, said: “British intelligence made a convincing job of Hitler’s horoscope. The stuff about his closest associates conspiring against him is plausible and Neptune is said to be the symbol of deception and illusion.”

Steps HR can Follow Approach an astrologer for HR Define the job functions clearly (some or many astrologers would not know) Define your requirements for the employee and what you can compromise on Clearly word your question Be patient Provide more information if requiredExamples Sales and Marketing Arians can be good at sales of arms, ammunitions, machines, and other things Arians Arians are not good in sales of luxury cars or luxury homes. Arian employee’s basic nature is speed, not luxury. Pure Accounts You need someone good at numbers, data entry, who sits at the table and is comfortable at a desk job, who loves detailing and all such stuff. No Arian will fit this place ever, in fact they will mostly not apply for this job, unless they are in dire need of employment. Employees with flavors of Mercury and Saturn in various forms and combinations, not necessarily, Gemini, Virgo, Capricorn and Aquarius sun signs only. Accounts with Treasury functions You need a person who can plan and act on cash reserves to generate some other income and plan your working capital Someone with a good Jupiter and Venus, he would be able to generate money with his own instincts as well as foresight and knack of making money work. May be Sagittarius, Taurus or Libra
