Canaveral Research is where the two meet, at the corner of Cosmos & Consciousness, on Florida's Beautiful Space Coast.   
Come on in, and let's move the dialogue along...

An unspoken, unconscious agreement still lingers within all our public discourse, 
to refuse to treat astrology as anything but a joke, for to do otherwise is to risk scorn. 

So does that make it safe to assume that living systems are therefore 100% free from any solar, lunar or planetary influences?
 Does anyone actually believe that? 
 Of course not.

Consider the following brief extract from this thorough review:
The Lunar Cycle: Effects on Human and Animal Behavior 
and Physiology

'The lunar cycle has an impact on human reproduction, in particular fertility, menstruation, and birth rate. ...Admittance to hospitals and emergency units because of various causes (cardiovascular and acute coronary events, variceal hemorrhage, diarrhea, urinary retention) correlated with moon phases. In addition, other events associated with human behavior, such as traffic accidents, crimes, and suicides, appeared to be influenced by the lunar cycle... 

Animal studies revealed that the lunar cycle may affect hormonal changes early in phylogenesis (insects). In fish the lunar clock influences reproduction and involves the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis. In birds, the daily variations in melatonin and corticosterone disappear during full-moon days. The lunar cycle also exerts effects on laboratory rats with regard to taste sensitivity and the ultrastructure of pineal gland cells. Cyclic variations related to the moon’s phases in the magnitude of the humoral immune response of mice to polivinylpyrrolidone and sheep erythrocytes were also described. It is suggested that melatonin and endogenous steroids may mediate the described cyclic alterations of physiological processes. The release of neurohormones may be triggered by the electromagnetic radiation and/or the gravitational pull of the moon. 
Zimeckl concludes that, ...' knowledge of this kind of biorhythm may be helpful in police surveillance, medical practice, and investigations involving laboratory animals.'

In other words, not only is there plenty of research and evidence 
for the existence of heretofore strictly 'astrological' influences, 
but knowledge of the same could be quite useful. 

Meanwhile, a universe teeming with Quantum Entanglement;
'spooky action at a distance,' almost seems to beg the astrological question.

"The stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine." James Jeans  The Mysterious Universe, page 137

Nick Campion has claimed that  “...cosmologists are obliged to operate like historians, selecting the evidence which suits their theories.  Even though most cosmologists would probably insist that they are scientists,  they are probably closer to social scientists in that they construct mathematical models but are dependent on the interpretation of evidence which may constitute but a tiny fragment of the whole.”66

Perhaps this is where the exclusion of astrology has hurt us the most.  In constructing mathematical cosmologies, devoid of the dimensions of meaning and consciousness that natural astrology provides, we are only working with a tiny fragment of the whole.  To quote the eminently quotable Dr. Will Keepin, “Astrology, in a sense, is a science of the order in meaning, and of its interpenetration with the physical space-time universe.” 67 

This is how far we have come since the Restoration, where, in the metaphor of curved space, astrology, science, and religion have grown so far apart that they must inevitably run back into  each other. 

We have all got a lot of catching up to do.
