Sorry, no etymologies found.
Astrology is the study of the impact of the celestial bodies — Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter,
The influence of the celestial bodies is variously considered to be absolutely determinative of all motions of the four sublunar ele - ments (Aristotelian physics is accepted as the basis for describing this influence, in a form somewhat modified by Neo-Platonic concepts); to be directional (that is, to indicate trends which may be changed by future astral influences or by the intervention of a super - natural being, usually on the pleading or at the behest of an astrologer or of a priest); or to be merely indica - tive of the divine will.
