There's less "scientific" proof behind psychology than most like to admit. It's a theoretical science, by necessity.

The variables are far greater if you can interpret almost any combination of events to mean almost anything.
In psychology, you can draw real relations between actions and events. Screaming at a grocery bag implies a mental disorder. In astrology, you are left to draw strained conclusions from things that have no obvious connection, if mars appears off colour, then you will have a poor temperament.
I don't understand how so many of you can really think of astrology as this comparable to psychology.. One examines the self then predicts possibilites and forms explanations, the other looks at the sky then makes predictions with fabled explanations. They're completely different, its like comparing palmistry to neurosurgeons, they're not at all alike.
(Finding a good analog to Astro Vs. Psycho is actually hard, I don't feel I really did it here..)
