Back in high school and through my college years I was into astrology. I knew all the sun signs, their characteristics, their start and end dates and which were compatible with which. I even did my full astrological chart. I knew my rising sign, my moon sign and which sign each planet was in when I was born.
A lot of the characteristics made sense to me. They fit me and people I knew. As a Gemini, I was most compatible with Libra, Aquarius and Sagittarius. In clubs, the main “pick up” line was “What’s your sign?”
However, I was really never into reading my daily horoscope. That really didn’t make sense. I know there are people out there who won’t make a decision or even get a haircut without consulting their horoscope. Now that’s silly.
I do remember buying those little booklets at the supermarket checkouts that have the whole year laid out for you by your sign. I wanted to know what my future would be. Who wouldn’t want to know? I’ve sat with fortune tellers, palm and tarot card readers who’ve told me that I’d marry in a few years. (Gee, I’m in my 50’s and still haven’t married – boy, did they get that wrong!)
Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.~Leviticus 19:31
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD; because of these same detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God. The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.~ Deut. 18:9-14
Folks, it doesn’t work!
God tells us not to look to the occult – to trust in Him. We are to pray and seek God’s will for our lives. We are to read the bible to learn how to act and live so that we obey Him. If we put our lives in God’s hands, we can’t go wrong! (Read: Trust God – It Works!)
I recently found my old “Gemini” book and promptly threw it out.
