Horoscope; 10 Reasons to Avoid Astrologers!

Astrologers use the horoscope as an art of divination to predict your future events or character. They ask for your birthday to relate its position in the sky, sun, moon and planets.

The horoscope originated from the eastern world but it’s becoming popular in our society. Today’s message tells more about astrology and at the end of this article you would know if it is truly for fun or not.

I was shocked when I read this publication: “A survey by Pew Research published in 2018 found that almost one in three adults in the United States believe in astrology.

More than one in four Christians also believe in astrology, including 24 percent of Protestants and 33 percent of Catholics. At 18 percent, evangelicals are tied with agnostics as the second-least-likely group to believe in astrology.

At 34 percent, Protestants are the second-most-likely group to believe in astrology, following those who claim their religion is “nothing in particular” (47 percent).

If you are someone who believes in astrology, please I appeal to you to stop because it is deceitful and unhelpful. The comment below was the experience of a Christian family who indulge in horoscope:

“They’re so funny because they are not true at all! My mom read hers and it told her that she would find the love of her life in a month and to leave the guy she’s with now… my dad laughed pretty hard at that!

But don’t listen to them, they are lying and have nothing to do with God, which is what we Christians want to stay away from!”

Is It Safe for Me to Read Horoscope?

This might be a worrisome question going through your heart now. I have the correct answer for you!

Marcia Montenegro was former professional licensed astrologer who practiced astrology for over 8 years; former President of the Metropolitan Astrological Society, former Chairperson of the Atlanta Board of Astrology Examiners; former teacher of astrology for over 5 years. But, listen to her testimony:

The very roots of astrology are in ancient paganism and worship of the planets as gods, making astrology a true form of “fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness”.

Most astrologers are involved in other forms of occultism and New Age practices such as tarot cards, numerology, belief in reincarnation, having spirit guides, Eastern meditation practices, and so forth.

Thus, reading horoscopes (as well as consulting an astrologer) is to be receptive to something coming from this kind of spiritual worldview.

Being an occult art, astrology is connected to the paranormal powers of the occult.

This paranormal effect manifested for me when I would concentrate on a chart in preparation for a reading or during the session with the client: I would feel a distinct energy flowing between the chart and myself. I called it “tuning into the chart.”

I usually felt guided through the chart, and seemed to know where to go in the chart for information and which information was relevant for the client.”

Marcia’s testimony shows that horoscope is not safe for Christians!

The secret of astrologers is to work on your psyche to believe their prediction and if you do, then it comes to pass.

10 Reasons You Must Stay Away from Horoscope

Astrology is currently enjoying a broad cultural acceptance due to the advent of the personal computer, accelerated with the Internet, and has reached new speeds through social media.

The Devil is doing his best to lure everyone into the end-time destruction, so Christians must know this secret and run away from reading horoscope.

The following points were carefully confirmed to show that astrology is not for you:

1. People who follow their stars are more likely to abandon their commitments and be self-indulgent if they’re predicted to have a bad day.

2. There is divine punishment for those who believe in astrologers.

Isaiah chapter 47 verse 13 and 14 says: “…Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, and the monthly prognosticators stand up and save you from what shall come upon you. Behold, they shall be as stubble, the fire shall burn them…”

3. Horoscope is usually vague and general in its predictions and can be open to a number of interpretations.

4. Astrology was based on the idea that the earth was the centre of the solar system, but their theory was proved to be wrong in 1543 when Copernicus discovered that the sun is the centre of the solar system.

Hence, the authenticity of horoscope had failed.

5. Three new planets were discovered; Uranus in 1781, Neptune in 1839 and Pluto in 1932, but the astrologers find it difficult to include them to the seven planets on their chart.

Thus, their readings would forever be inaccurate.

6. Their predictions are always untrue. For instance, how could twins born in the same place and at the same time develop widely varying lifestyles?

7. Horoscope looks harmless but it is occultism. It links the clients to the dark world which takes their hearts away from the LORD.

8. Many people who love this divination suffer demonic oppression while some become demonic possessed.

9. If you love horoscope for fun then you are funnily practicing idolatry.

10. Your LORD does not want you to adore the stars, moon or any heavenly bodies. The LORD says:

“…If there is found among you…who has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, either the sun or moon or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded…

…then you shall bring out to your gates that man or woman who has committed that wicked thing, and shall stone to death that man or woman with stones.” (Deuteronomy chapter 17)


The cogent points above show that horoscope is inaccurate, occultism, deceitful and idolatry. So, don’t download the application and ignore their enticement on the internet.
