This is what the LORD says: "Do not act like the other nations, who try to read their future in the stars. Do not be afraid of their predictions, even though other nations are terrified by them. Jeremiah 10:2 NLT

Hundreds of millions of people believe in astrology, including more than a few Christians. But did you know that astrology is based on the pagan belief that the sun and planets are gods, and that's how they influence events on earth?

Astrology has no scientific basis. There is no logical explanation for how it might work. For example, what gravitational forces do planets exert on the people they supposedly influence? How can it be argued that the very distant, tiny dwarf planet, Pluto (that supposedly rules only Scorpios), is equal in influence to the monstrous star called the sun (that supposedly rules only Leos)? It's ludicrous!

If you put any credence in astrology or astromancy (daily predictions), you're trusting important life decisions to pagan superstition. Some people like to have the planets (or stars) handy to blame when things go wrong, but as Shakespeare wrote in the play, Julius Caesar, "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves."

Put your trust in God, not in irrational astrology. God has planned a wonderful future for you, so trust Him to guide you.

Prayer: God, please forgive me if I put any credence in such superstitious folly. Help me to put my trust firmly in You and Your Word. I pray.
