When I was looking for writing prompts for my 31 posts in 31 days (1) one of the prompts was, is your astrological sign accurate, why or why not? I was instantly intrigued because astrology is not something that Christians typically talk about.
Do you believe or practice astrology? Do you read your horoscope in the paper or online? I have never been one to really get into astrology but I do look at my birth sign and try to see if the traits attributed to me are accurate or not. I hate to admit they are pretty accurate. I am a Virgo. My birthday is September 13. When I look up characteristics of my sign, I am not surprised by what I find.

I am definitely 90% of these things.
These traits go well together and fairly accurate in their position. The bible is not a big fan of astrologers however. God is not into it at all. There are several verses that speak openly about astrologers, diviners, etc.

I personally don’t think it is that bad to know about your personality, and why you do certain things. I don’t personally believe it is a gateway to other dark spirits or things like that. I take it for what is and leave it at that. I have never believed in my horoscope because they are just to general to be true. As I have been digging deeper to figure out why I act the way I do, I have realized that a lot of things are based on nurture or how I was raised. I don’t want pass down any negative behavior down to my children and I will not be using when they are born to determine their personality. When I need answers to things I turn to God not to the stars.
