As far as Bombay's High Court is concerned, astrology is a science.

"So far as prayer related to astrology is concerned, the Supreme Court has already considered the issue and ruled that astrology is science. The court had in 2004 also directed the universities to consider if astrology science can be added to the syllabus. The decision of the apex court is binding on this court," the court ruled as it dismissed a lawsuit challenging the validity of predictions issued by local astrologers.
