The stories from the heavens are more than folklore to keep our minds at attention and our hearts at ease. Astrology is more than a study of stars, it is the study on our relationship with them. For even today, the stars guide our lives in many ways both noticeable and not. The art of Astrology is concocted by those who attempt to understand this celestial relationship. Though the most powerful of secrets that Astrology can bestow are among the most difficult to attain, it is worth for those with the will. After all, if you succeed, perhaps it is because the starts foretold it so?

Comets

Dominant Attribute: Luck

Whereas most points in the heavens are fixed in their paths, the bodies known as comets are the ones who travel the most.  Some comets act as old friends, coming and going at regular intervals.  Others act as strangers who appear once and leave, never to be seen again.  Still others act as signposts for those who know how to read them, just as a man carrying a lantern in the night is known to be a safe person to approach.

Moons

If Planets are wanderers in the sky, then moons are their children. Most are too small or too faraway to be seen with the naked eye, but the astrological arts assure us they exist and that they shape the favors their parents give. Anticipating their subtleties is one of the Astrologers greatest challenges.

Numerology (a.k.a. The Everard Equation)

Dominant Attribute: Intelligence

[New Subskill as of DLC 13]

Since the early days of the Empire of Man, there have been wizards who've sought to quantify Astrology - to make its powers more easily understood, and its rotations and signs open to greater complexity.  Wedding mathematics to the art was one of the more creative approaches, and one that stayed in favor in polite company even in those centuries when Astrology as a whole seemed the stuff of peddlers, liars and madmen.  It's known in academic circles as Numerology.

The Everard Equation and surrounding studies are Numerological in nature, but they also rely heavily upon an older outside tradition - a specific style of cards, called a Marat deck, and the associated symbolism.  The cards are fairly common, but wizards who really know how to read them are rare.

Stars

Dominant Attribute: Luck

Stars are the lords and ladies of all the houses in the great night sky, and the great masters of any Astrologer's attentions.  Each has its personality, each has its demands, and each has its own sympathies and resentments with its neighbors.  The study of any single star can be a life's work, but you need to be familiar with dozens of them before the year's out if you hope to be competitve in the Astrological magics.

Theory of Astrology

Understanding how something is done is just as important as understanding how to do it, and so it is with Astrology. The stars above influence the lives of those below, but the how and the why are separate questions. By gaining a greater understanding of the why, one can get a better grasp on the how. Learning the why of Astrology is a fickle thing, however, those who do not consider themselves Lucky will often stumble when the time comes to translate their why into their how.
