It is definitely a science. What does the second stanza of Brihat Jataka by Varahamihiracharya say: " Swalpam Vritha Vichitram Sastra plavam.........". So even the author in the 6th century AD has considered JYOTHISSASTRA as a science.All the other sciences which developed later ,are no doubt, developed from this science only.

Science can accept only what is proved and it will take some more time for science to reach up to Astrology. Science has never stopped at any point.
