Perhaps it is because signs of mental illness are more likely to be behavioural, emotional and cognitive rather than physical, therefore less likely to be recognised as an illness. As with rituals and traditions, is it harmful to seek astrological help in such times? Before answering that question let us examine whether astrology is a science as its proponents claim.
