Journeying from one country to another, the astrologer took refuge in a land with not a familiar soul in sight. She lived there comfortably for a time, until a political breakdown in that country led to the outbreak of war. Many buildings burned, and many of astrologer's newfound friends died in the conflict. Though she had promised herself that she would never use her astrological power again, she felt that they could be of use again... After difficult consideration, she decided to return to the role she had once played.

The word astrology comes from the early Latin word astrologia, deriving from the Greek ἀστρολογία (from ἄστρον astron, "star" and -λογία -logia, "study of"), "account of the stars". Astrologia later passed into meaning "star-divination" with astronomia used for the scientific term.
An astrologer practices one or more forms of astrology. Typically an astrologer draws a horoscope for the time of an event, such as a person's birth, and interprets celestial points and their placements at the time of the event to better understand someone, determine the auspiciousness of an undertaking's beginning, etc. However, the methods employed by astrologers are variable and depend on the particular astrological tradition they employ and the information desired. Today, astrology is largely considered a pseudoscience.
