Astrology is the ancient belief that a person’s destiny can be found in the pattern of the stars and planets at the time of one’s birth. The “horoscope” is the chart that attempts to describe that destiny. The fascination with astrology and horoscopes undoubtedly reflects people’s desire for wisdom beyond their own and direction for the future.
My social media is filled with so many people from many backgrounds. As a church leader, my timeline is filled with other church leaders as well as well meaning Christian believers. I am never perplexed when a Christian believers celebrate their belief and use of astrology. Sometimes, believers have never been taught about the dangers the Word of God and astrology. Yet, I am amazed at the number of leaders I see celebrating their birthdays and throwing their astrology sign out there.
