Astrology

Astrology, n. The science of making the dupe see stars. Astrology is by some held in high respect as the precursor of astronomy. Similarly, the night-howling tomcat has a just claim to reverential consideration as precursor to the hurtling bootjack.

2005 Update: The practice of ennobling personality defects by projecting into the heavens what's resented by the neighbors. Autoidolatry.
