Everything may be science...but everything else is Woo!
Ah, astrology and christianity... a match made in the heavens. Thought that stuff was considered witchcraft.
It is considered witchcraft. However, just look at how many people believe in witchcraft.
It's funny how faith in crap (e.g. Christianity) begets faith in other crap (e.g. witchcraft). Then the true believers fight amongst themselves over which crap is better. Crap might not all smell the same, but it all still smells like...crap. Just cracks my ass up.
Although dated, Michael Shermer's "Why People Believe Weird Things" has a lot of statistical data on the demographics of "believers". Turns out that people who put their faith in religion are less likely to believe in other forms of woo. This probably varies depending on your religion, but I think Christians who are strong in their faith are probably not in the majority of an astrologers customers. But neither are the atheists. So, those who buy into the woo fall into that gray area in between. Sylvia Browne claims that her church Novus Spiritus is compatible with the teachings of the bible, and so those with weak convictions are easy marks.
