By comprehending the motion of the planets and being able to anticipate their positions in the future, astrology attempts to foretell how the heavenly bodies will affect happenings on Earth. As a result, astrology was regarded as a subfield of astronomy and astrological treatises were written by eminent scholars such Abu Ma’shar al-Balkhi (787-886), al-Biruni, and Nasir al-Din al-Tusi (1201-1274). However, the prevalence of anti-astrology writings written by mediaeval theologians, lawyers, and philosophers suggests that the practice was contentious and not generally regarded as a scientific or moral activity. Many thought that to indicate that factors other than God may influence human events went against the fundamental principles of Islam.
The practice of astrology continued despite this; in fact, astrologers were employed at royal courts to assist rulers in making decisions regarding when to announce an heir, when to launch a military campaign, and how their kingdoms would fare in the future. Astrologers also offered their services in bazaars where anyone could pay for horoscope readings and predictions. To predict their futures, horoscopes were also created at the time that capital cities were founded, such as al-Mahdiyya, the city of the Fatimids, and Baghdad, the capital of the Abbasids.
The ephemeris, a table that lists the positions of celestial objects at a given time, and the dust board (takht), a tablet covered in sand on which calculations could be made and erased, were the astrologer’s three tools. The astrolabe, used to determine the time by measuring the altitude of the sun or any other visible stellar object (91.1.535a-h), the ephemeris, and the dust board were The majority of astrologers received their training by studying under a master, where they gained a foundational understanding of astronomy, mathematics, and the use of astrological instruments. The astrologist would then interpret the signals and what they represented for the client’s future after obtaining the measurements and performing their calculations. These interpretations were based on the extensive corpus of astrological literature, which ranged from treatises that described the psychological attributes associated with each zodiac sign to guides for interpreting signs.
