As early as 30,000 BC humans have been charting the stars. It was noted that the stars moved in a fixed way, whilst the planets and moon would pass in front of them. Also, of note to our ancestors was that the events and affairs of people seemed to be linked to these movements.
For instance, when Mars was visible, people seemed prepared for war. Hence Mars was named after the God of War. When there was peace and harmony Venus was visible and hence was named as such. This formed the basis for all astrology as we know it today.

Having the foresight to predict relationships and struggles that may occur has given way to it being widely known and accepted.
