In Reply to: Shawn - I found this, something Maimonides said posted by Rachael sm on August 15, 2010 at 18:22:20:

: (with regard to) Astrology

: Maimonides answered an inquiry concerning astrology, addressed to him from Marseille. He responded that man should believe only what can be supported either by rational proof, by the evidence of the senses, or by trustworthy authority. He affirms that he had studied astrology, and that it does not deserve to be described as a science. The supposition that the fate of a man could be dependent upon the constellations is ridiculed by him; he argues that such a theory would rob life of purpose, and would make man a slave of destiny. (See also fatalism, predestination.)

: My point is not what he felt about astrology but: He responded that man should believe only what can be supported either by rational proof, by the evidence of the senses, or by trustworthy authority.

: Anyway, here is more if you want to read about him.
