Hello,yes I used to read but,it's not goodfor my opinion. It even starts fear in the mind or doubt. God is God & He a jealous God! He don't have to share with nobody! Horoscope just anotherdistraction! Keep your mind off the things of the Lord!

Reading the astrological signs give one a false sense of security,too. We feel we are getting insight into a person's personality. How we can better get along with the person, their quirks, if you are compatible and so forth. Astrology is akin to witchcraft,tarot cards,gambling(scratch tickets and so forth). And yes it is a sin to follow astrology. Reading charts and all that is idolatry.

Augie astrology is part of the occult and not something any Christian should consult.
---Warwick on 9/30/11

I used to read those horoscope nonsense until 1 day in my secondary school that I experienced completely opposite their predictions. That was the day that I threw horoscope out of the window of my life. To me it means horoscope & God are not in line. God has been speaking to me since i was 8yrs old, HE has never told me anything & I will receive the opposite/contrary.

I dont understand how checking your zodiac is worshippping satan,
Don't be afraid to ask questions, or think through things.
You do not have to listen to every word you've ever been told.
---Freethinker on 9/29/11

You're my kind of fellow Freethinker. Not listening to anything but, that which is witnessed to point o undeniability.

You will find truth. Not being restricted by falsehoods but, rather looking back at them.

It is my personal belief, on horoscopes now,..... that thinking a star/planet could personally direct my day/date/future etc. puts GOD second. When he made em. Not good to do dat.

Are there signs GOD will signify by stars? You bet. Concordance stars. In scripture 50 times.
---Trav on 9/29/11

I dont understand how checking your zodiac is worshippping satan, or for that matter worshipping a false idol. What if you believe, respect and worship God but you believe it was Him telling the Bible's story through the stars. You shouldn't be so quick to preach hellfire on others for having their own opinions or maybe ones that in a way are similar but not completely the same. Don't be afraid to ask questions, or think through things. Have a mind of your own, you can think freely or wonder and still have love for your God in your heart. You do not have to listen to every word you've ever been told.

Personally before i became a Christian i was a witch. And Zodiac signs are a big part of it. I used to check what the zodiac sign for me was. I would check the personality traits of that zodiac sign and i actually turned into that:stubborn(this is not a Godly trait at all). Not only that but from studying zodiac signs got me to thinking stones had power. zodiac is of the occult. All it will do is get you off track. Give GOD the glory not some star or sign.
---Briana on 6/5/08

Some Christians just need to be discipled(taught). The bible clearly tells us this is a form of idolatry and we should pay attention, but we do make slips now and again. Usually when people do this their faith-level is down and they feel they are looking into the future somehow,by reading their horoscopes. They are carnal and defeated Christians.

1st Cliff. Read Psalm 147:4.
---Gordon on 4/28/08

You had better give God all the glory and praise for He did name all the stars. Why would He create them and not name them?>>>In Psalms 147:4."He telleth the number of the stars, He calleth them all by their NAMES. Biblical writers knew many of the constellations. Read Job 38:31. The Lord asked Job, "can you bind the chains of the Pleiades, or loose the cords of Orion"? Individual stars are mentioned in [Amos 5:26, Acts 7:42].

Why open the door to demons entering your life. We are not to take any part in divination or magic or occult practices. In the O.T. it was punishable by death. Why should we disobey God and not expect to be punished for it?
---frances008 on 4/25/08

Gordon, Maybe I'm missing something here,where did you get the information that God named all the stars?
---1st_cliff on 4/25/08

Oops! I caught myself sinning.

I was paging through a news magazine and saw an Astrology chart on one page. My Zodiac sign, Aries, was the first one listed. It said that the Iraq war is costing $500,000 each day. Money down the toilet. Argh !!!

May GOD forgive me forgive me for checking my daily Horoscope. I've decided to run back to HIM after my "sinning while reading" caused me to get so upset. GOD is GOD. Amen.
---Augie on 4/24/08

John, Thank for your concerned warning. But, I know Who designed those stars. I know Who placed them up in the Second Heaven (Outer Space). I know the ONE Who gave them each a name. He is a Wonderful Artist. No one will not convince me that even the stars give Him Glory. The Devil uses those Constellations for Witchcraft (Astrology). GOD uses them to tell His Story of Redemption.
---Gordon on 4/24/08

Don't believe it Gordon. It's just an excuse to get you interested in it, designed by the devil. Just read God's Word. That will tell you all that you need to know. God bless.
---John on 4/18/08

I was introduced to Astrology in the 4th grade. I learned that my Zodiac Sign, or Horoscope, is: Aries. So? The daily newspaper guides were about as accurate, and inaccurate, as the weather forecasts.

After I became a Christian, I learned that all the garbage is WITCHCRAFT. Stay away from it. Even if you think it is only clean, honest fun. It is not. It is yet another trap that Satan has put out to snare people with.

I do believe that the 12 Zodiac symbols, as in the 12 Constellations of the Zodiac, tell the Story of Jesus Christ (YAHUSHUA) as Saviour and Lord. Beginning with VIRGO: the Virgin, which depicts His First Advent via the Virgin Birth. Then, the last, LEO: the Lion, as YAHUSHUA's Second Advent as the King of kings and Lord of lords, and the Lion of the Tribe of Yahudah. Astrology is wrong, but ASTRONOMY is of GOD. He placed the stars in the sky and gave each one a name.
---Gordon on 4/17/08

Astrology and Horoscope "checking" are EVIL indeed! Rebellion is as the SIN of Witchcraft. GOD...HATES....REBELLION......!
---Gordon on 4/17/08

If you don't mean anything evil by it (Most don't know), you are still at risk. It's considered witchcraft. Stay away from it, and honor God, even if YOU think it's innocent. It's a gateway for the devil.
---Jay on 4/17/08

Yes, John, people do change. Usually for the worse. Because, only God can change a person for the better. How many people have God? Really, really has God?

Zodiac not sinful, it's stupid. Honestly if you believe that your destiny is controlled by one of 12 celestial alignments then you should seriously look into tying your tubes. That maybe mean but seriously, out of all the problems in the world you pick ZODIAC SIGNS??
---Courtney on 4/17/08

3 Magi were led by a star from the East. Is it not unnatural and zodiac sign. We are confused, please clarify this confusion.
---vincent on 4/17/08

I am sure most who do check zodiac signs do so because they havn't been taught it is wrong.Until I was taught better I just thought it was amusing because they could always obviousley fit so many diffirent people in some way.
---shirley on 4/16/08

I have no idea at all. It puzzles me when someone who claims to be a Christian dabbles in this demonic activity. I have been saved since 1982 and I absolutely believe that curses come with seeking this thing. O yes! Even if there is no evidence of this at first. When Ronald Regan was President, his first term was great! He even acknowledged God and His Word often. At the beginning of his second term his wife relyed on astrology. You know the rest.

Actually, they're a form of divination, not idolatry. Some do it just for fun, some because they actually believe in them.

But I find it absurd to even think that any one newspaper horoscope would apply to 500,000 people (12 horoscopes divided by 6 billion people) on any given day.

(Of course, in the 1970s, 'What's your sign?' was a courting thing, much like manipulating Tarot cards to hint you liked someone was in the 1870s.)
---Nancy on 4/16/08

Do I understand correctly that this Zodiac sign thing is the same as checking your horoscope to see what you should and should not do, each day? Humans have a "herd instinct" > others do it, so they do it . . . the fad tendency, like how ones will swing together about who is popular in music and movies, etc. Ones *say* they are Christians and go with Zodiac-horoscope stuff. But that is not trusting Jesus to guide them *personally* > (2) >
---Bill_bila5659 on 4/16/08

What an ignorant thing to do! I'll take my daily cues from the Word, not some flake who writes horoscopes!
---NVBarbara on 4/16/08

(2) All right, so ones depending on horoscope guidance are not submitting to Jesus Christ's personal guidance, but are letting themselves be glumped together in some one lump category of people who all get the same guidance for the day. This is a form of Satan's oppression, because it puts totally different and specially unique individuals in a one-size-fits-all thing. But God is creative and He is love > our Father gives personal attention and creative guidance to each of us, all the time (o:
