Do you believe in astrology? Do you read your horoscope? I can't help but to believe in astrology! I mean, I do and I don't.. I don't want to, but I find myself reading my horoscope all the time and believing it. I always joke with my boyfriend that Pisces (me) and Gemini (him) do not go well together. He hates it :P But what is weird is he has only dated Pisces girls (not on purpose) and it has always ended poorly...... I don't know if Tarot cards have anything to do with astrology, but I have a set and I like to read my fortune once in awhile.. and you know, it always seems right! I know, I know.. horoscopes and tarot readings are always broad so they could fit anyone.. blah blah I don't care! LOL. Maybe I can grow up to be a psychic or something...

I think there are people who are born with a gift of forsite. I however, do not believe that all the people who claim to be able to read tarot cards and tell your future are so gifted. Most people who see things that come true do not like to talk about it. Anyone can be taughter to read terot cards. These cards are set up with direction so you can learn the cards meaning. However, they don't teach you how to make these cards fit into a persons life. I also do not think you can be taught witchcraft either. These are all things that you either can do or not do and all the books in the world can not make it so. It is very easy to do your own fortune with tarot cards because you know yourself and understand yourself. This means you can make the card work in your life.

There are people with this gift, & there are some in my family. We don't practise it purposely.

I will read my horoscope, but I find that any of the horoscopes I could apply to my life. I am not a big beleiver in this but it is fun to read them especially in our local newspaper.

I also can't help myself from believing. It feels like I don't want to believe it. But whenever I go through newspaper or magazines then I find myself reading horoscopes. It seems really funny to me. I don't know wether I'm a believer or non believer.

Hey woo, (Gemini) here. Yes I believe in astrology. It is very real. I think some people probably don't believe or bother with horoscopes because a lot of it is based on theories and predictions rather than scientific proof. I read my horoscope everyday. I don't live my life by it or anything, but it is strange how it always seems to be right on time with what's going on in my life. Most of the time anyway. I ALWAYS know when it's a full moon. I don't have to go outside and look, I can just feel it. Some people go through life and never pay attention to things like that. Heck they wouldn't know if the moon fell from the sky unless it happened to land on their house! I don't believe that people are led around by the moon and the stars though. Everyone is responsible for their own actions which usually determines the outcome of things that happen in their life. But the earth is just a small part of the universe and is definitely affected by other outside forces responsible for the weather, tides....why some days are better days to go fishing than others, and just like it has an effect on the fish, it certainly must have an effect on us as well, whether we understand it all completely or not. For those of you who are interested go to the link below and get a free tarot reading or sign up for your daily horoscope. http://www.Tarot.com/readLink.php?code=jamher5 I've recieved a daily horiscope in my email from this site for about 2 years now. This site is everything to do with astrology including tarot, astrology, numerology, i-ching, feng shui, and a new psychic category.

I don't believe in horoscopes, but I do think signs have some meaning. I know I relate to mine and just about everyone I know does. So I think there is something there, however I also think if we can predict our future with it, it takes someone with a real in-depth knowledge to do that. Most of the horoscopes I have came by, seems to be just the same thing over and over again rotating among the signs. BTW I am a Scorpio and hubby is a Pisces. According to the signs, we are a great match. However all of my exboyfriends and my ex husband were Aries, Gemini, and Libra all of which Scorpio is NOT compatible with. I don't know if it's fluke or not, but does make one think doesn't it. Oh and here is a site I like to go to about our signs since me and you are compatible, I will share it with you, LOL. www.astrology-online.com

I am kind of on and off with the tarot and horoscopes. However I do read my horoscope every day as well! I have mixed emotions about how accurate they are because as you said they can be quite vague. My husband and I were in New Orleans once and we had our tarot's read in Jackson Square and he was so accurate it was scary. We had talked before getting them done about not giving away any information and our facial expressions were very stoic. Even with us trying to hide our emotions and our relationship, he read the cards and they were very accurate. So, I have to say that helped me believe a little bit more. That or he was a really good con artist! hahaha

Maybe he secretly had a laptop on his lap and was googling you or something :P I have always wanted to have my fortune read, but nobody will ever go with me because they think it's a waste of money... I think it would be fun either way.

I dont know but sometimes I believe in the description between signs, because it matches my personality. But in daily basis of life I dont think taht I would be able to believe that...because I cant believe that same things would happen in same signs... Astrology is the study of the influence that distant cosmic objects, usually stars and planets, have on human lives. The position of the sun, stars, moon and planets at the time of people's birth (not their conception) is said to shape their personality, affect their romantic relationships and predict their economic fortunes, among other divinations. What most people know about astrology is their "sign," which refers to one of the 12 constellations of the zodiac. This is a form of sun-sign astrology, which is the astrology upon which newspaper horoscopes are based. It is probably the simplest form, because nothing more than the date of someone's birthday is needed to generate a sun-sign horoscope. Many astrologers will tell you that this form of astrology is so simplistic that it produces very limited results. I guess that in a way this is true. So you better have to study a lot if you want to be astrologer... Good luck and happy posting to you.

Its good to believe in astrology. It really works. I can tell u this being an astrologer. But its not good to depend on it so much that you spoil ur life. We are not supposed to fill ourselves with negative energy. It will definitely have detrimental affect on our forthcoming events.

I'M like you. I beliegve and I don't believe. I don't believe in astology that his wirtten in the newspaper because I know that most of the time they put random thing. But I believe when they give a description of a sign because most of the time it's true. Also a guy and a girl in a sign are not the same.

I don't believe in it at all. Their predictions are always either too general and broad to prove anything, or detailed and wrong. I sometimes read the horoscopes in the newspapers when I'm bored, but I don't believe in them and I don't even remember them for more than a few seconds after putting down the paper. I find it hard to believe that the movement of planets and stars or whatever can affect me in any meaningful way, because my actions and choices are my own and not determined by anything in the sky.

Yes I believe in Astrology. Astrology is yet another science that can predict things based on the star and planet positions. That is not some sort of magic. Every concept in the world has both support and opposition. So do what you think is the best for you regarding Astrology.

I read my horoscope, but I always take it with a grain of salt. I know that it's not really something to plan your life around, but it is nice to have some insight. I believe that truly comprehensive horoscopes are terribly accurate. The ones that are printed in papers and online are very generalized, but they still tend to be fairly accurate.

I can assure you that with only the sun signs pisces and gemini you cannot make any solid prediction whether you two fit together or not. You need the complete birth chart. Otherwise it is vulgar astrology that pisces/water/feminine vs gemini/air/masculine don't harmonize! website: http://www.tetoolbox.com/r/ture05/

Actually I don't believe astrology but it is fun to read them. I read my astrology all the time. If I come across an astrology prediction column in the newspaper, I would never miss from reading it. It is one type of entertainment to me. I never believe it though.

I do belive in astrology to a certain extent, and I do read my horoscope daily. But for the most part it is really never correct. I rely more on my tarot cards to give ne insight. And I have found my cards work the best. Horoscopes are based on the general sign, not the person. I did have to ponder on the Pisces/ Gemini combanation though. I'm a Taurus, and I was with a Gemini once, and what a disaster that was. I could not deal with the twin personality thing.

No, i just laughed at it. But i do read it,and think about it, and laughed at it. I never take it seriously, we should not always depends our lives with horoscope, we are the ones that will make a difference with our life and not the astrology thing. We should do something to make our lifes fulfilling. I have read my horoscope earlier and it goes like this, you have to find another oppurtunity when you are bored on your daily activities,of course, if i am bored then i have to find something new that i will not make me bored.It is simple and i just laughed at it.

I used to read the fortune published in papers daily.I dont have much belief in horoscope but i tend to read what is the good and bad written for my zodiac sign.Its just a curiosity. Some times certain things happen as per the writings and sometimes dont.So actually i have a dilemma whether all this predictions are real or not. But one thing i always believe is whatever bad thing that is going to happen cannot be stopped and i have to face the consequence.

I don't believe in astrology or the like. Before a few years I used to read every article on the subject, but since then I lost faith in all these predictions. They are all framed up in a manner as to suit anybody. Not only that, what is the thrill in life if we clearly know what is to happen next?

I do believe in astrology. I know it can be accurate indeed. I used to read my stars everyday. I don't now. I don't think it's a good thing to focus on what may, or may not happen. Plus, one has to be careful which astrologers you use. There are good & accurate ones, & there are scammers.
