Many people doesn't even have a horroscope.In our country and culture,its a custom to do according to a horroscope for marriage or starting a business and whatever we do we predict happenings according to a horroscope.But now in this modern culture horroscopes are losing importance.Do you have a horroscope created?Do you believe in it?

Dear Sumaraji, I hope I will not be offending you with my response. But I am answering this post of your on the basis of my personal belief...... As far as I know on the basis of what I have seen and heard, the purpose of a horoscope is to foretell the future or gain some insights on the person's character. The basis is on Astrology that states planets and stars exert an influence upon our lives. And some astrologers claim they can predict happenings in a person’s life. As a Christian, I totally do not agree and do not believe horoscope because Astrology opposes biblical teaching in these ways: First, it advocates faith in something other than God, and second, it is a form of divination. We cannot determine God's will for our lives through horoscopes. As Christian I only rely on the word of God the Bible and I ask wisdom and guidance from God through prayers. I believe consulting a horoscope is a violation of God's means of communicating with me and all his children as well. The Bible expressly forbids divination, sorcery, and hidden arts (Deuteronomy 18:10-14). God’s people are to heed God only (Deuteronomy 18:15). Any other source of guidance, information, or revelation is to be rejected outright. (See also Acts 16:16-18.) The Bible points to Jesus Christ as the only proper focus of faith (Acts 4:12; Hebrews 12:2). Our trust is in God alone, and we know that He will direct our paths (Proverbs 3:5-6). Faith in anything besides God is misplaced. I hope I have expressed my own views without hurting our cyber friendship. Have a nice day!

Hi salonga,I do agree with you and I dont feel offended or hurt in anyway.I too dont believe horroscopes but it was followed as a custom from olden days and even now followed in our families.But in this generation youngsters dont follow our elders and do as they wish and horroscopes are losing importance in ourlives too.In future I hope this habit would be given up totally.Hey I just asked your views and why should I feel hurt?Have a nice day.Happy mylotting.

Hello Sumiirajj. I strongly believe that it is us who can make our own horoscopes. I mean we can turn predicted events upside down. And we can choose not to controlled by a horoscope. Many people I know still use it as a guide of some sort, or an inspiration perhaps, or a tool to avoid "danger." But I insist that I write out my own horoscope. If we just decide to, we can make things happen the way we want it to happen, we just need a little faith and a lot of action. :)
