You don't have to be an astrotician to use a smartphone.  You don't even have to be an astrotician to make a smartphone.  Tim Apple's lead engineer could believe in this nonsense for all we know.

Somebody has to pay for the science and engineering needed to make the magnificent machine. Who's that? Consumers. Astrology is the potato chips and soda of the consumer class.

If we were handing out names today, astrology would be what we call astrophysics. But I'm lacking the classical education to find the fancy name for "birthdate correlated factors".

And your birthdate has effects on your life. Born in September or October? You're going to do better in school because you're older than your cohort. Also, you're going to be a better driver because you're going to learn in worse weather. No hockey players past May, because they play by year of birth.

My favourite was something to the effect of "You will be criticized for taking the easy way out because no one will understand how hard it was to find an extension cord that reached the bathtub."

Cancer - June 21 to July 22
You are sympathetic and understanding to other people's problems. They think you are a sucker. You are always putting things off. That's why you'll never make anything out of yourself. Most people on the dole are Cancer.

You can believe what you want but Jupiter will suddenly have a large effect on your life when it slings a large comet toward earth.
