Why two expert financial analysts agree less, in their predictions, than two astrologers?

I have been asking the same question for the past 5 years (at least). I heard someone copying my phrase, but without mentioning the astrologers thing. Probably he believed in stars or he was making good money by it. (LOL)

The way the global and local economies are going, make the importance of proper financial analysis more crucial than ever. Yet we see, mainly local financial analysts, debating about local and global financial issues. In addition they are coming up with conclusions totally different with each other. How can we explain this?
