It's official and everything (in india)

"So far as prayer related to astrology is concerned, the Supreme Court  has already considered the issue and ruled that astrology is science. The court had in 2004 also directed the universities to consider if astrology science can be added to the syllabus. The decision of the apex court is binding on this court," observed the judges.

In Big Bang Theory, Episode 1, Season 1, Penny says, "I'm a Sagittarius, which probably tells you way more than you need to know." to which Sheldon replies, "It probably tells us that you participate in the mass cultural delusion that the sun's apparent position relative to arbitrarily defined constellations at the time of your birth somehow effects your personality."
