_You do realise_ that this kind of judgement :

1) Has no place here
2) Is in no way helpful for the original poster

There are many reasons people do astrology, or believe in a god or
another, or have some kind of faith. It's nobody's role to question
them, and certainly not your's, and not on this list.

If the person is looking for an astrology package, and asks here, we
should help them find one. Same as if there were asking for a bible, or
coran package, or a magic class package, or whatever else.

So here are some links to help the OP :

1) Ubuntu Community documentation on Astrology :

As you can see, there are other software than "astrolog", in particular
Maitreya (india astrology), and Skylendar (a derivative of astrolog,
based on KDE libs).

2) : which has
a Ubuntu repository

I hope these starting points help.
