The article covers Scorpius. As for the other traditions, this was about western astrology. Native American and Chinese are something that will have to wait for another day. The reason why they wanted to find out how those dots on the sky moved, was in order to make better horoscopes. At least until about years ago.
Astronomy was founded, thousands of years ago, as a technology to improve the horoscopes. We have not come so far as we want to believe, when it comes to the fundamental questions. SETI has gotten nowhere since then. True, but astrology has since grown to become an entirely distinct field from astronomy. And this is a science website, so while such connections are acknowledged, they are not emphasized. And we could trade with them in profit!? I think that astronomy today should recognize astrology for what it once was, the reason for astronomy to become.
Not just short sightedly rank down on whatever fraudsters today who falsely predict their fools future. When astrology is taken seriously and is investigated scientifically, then you invent astronomy. That was how it happened. We no longer see our destiny among the stars.

Not only is astrology based in superstitious thinking that does nothing to advance our interest or our knowledge of the universe, its not even accurate as this article shows.
