Inceptional horoscope for WikiProject Astrology, dated 10 June 2006.

Purpose and goals[edit]

This project focuses on creating, improving and organizing content related to the subject of astrology in Wikipedia. Our goals include the improvement of articles on historical, technical, philosophical and theoretical issues involving astrology in different cultures and traditions, as well as its relation to other fields. The project will also work on improving the categorization of astrology-related articles. Some general tasks:

  • Identify unmarked astrology-related stubs and expand them into full articles. See Articles in need of expansion below.
  • Improve and refine existing astrology articles by drawing on reliable sources and academic works and citing them as sources. A good starting point is articles associated with the list of astrologers page.
  • Identify and create missing astrology articles.
  • Improve this page and make it more useful for potential astrology editors and project members.
  • Invite active editors who write for astrology-related articles, history of science articles, or other applicable fields to join the project.
  • Add all articles within the scope of this project to the Wikipedia:WikiProject Astrology/Articles page by category. See Templates.
  • Improve the categorization and organization of astrological material.
  • Gather interest and participation in an astrological community within Wikipedia.
  • Maintain the Astrology portal.
  • Watch articles within this project's recent changes, including improvements, vandalism, and other changes.
  • Wikipedia: Monitor the broad astrology categories and keep them clean by replacing overly broad categories with more specific ones.
  • Commons: Ensure that astrology related images are properly categorized, especially in relevant subcategories.
  • Wikisource: Upload public domain content related to astrology and ensure that existing content is properly categorized.
