Do you believe in Horoscopes?

Horoscope - Libra - Libra is the seventh astrological sign in the Zodiac. Being the seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra has been associated with the astrological seventh house. Libras are commonly referred to as fiesty and fiery individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun enters Libra on the moment of autumnal equinox by definition on September 23, leaving it on October 22. Under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly around October 18 and November 16. Libra also known as The Scales or Balance, is the only symbol of the zodiac that is represented by an inanimate object, rather than an animal or human.

For me, i really do not believe in it. Because I always want to believe on something based on my perspectives in life. But one day, when i was watching television suddenly the TV show was about horoscopes and I just thought about watching and waited for my horoscope to be said on TV about its info and all that. My horoscope was saying about me that i could not travel that I have to settle things out with my travel agent and so on and so forth. I was so disappointed about it because its always my dream to travel abroad and I told myself that it should be out of my head and instead focus on productive things to do in my life. Horoscopes are just a guide for us its not totally true at all. There is always free will and we should make use of it. How about you? Do you have experiences were your surprised about your horoscopes? Did it ever happen to you that your horoscopes became real?

do you believe in horoscope? me to be frank i never believed in such things. I always thought how can human-priests, see our future? if people could see his future before time then nothing wrong would happen in life because we would see everything and take precaution i.e problem would never exist. however i started having a little faith in horoscope when i started seeing the predictions really happen sometimes.

I too don't believe in it. Some says matching the horoscopes is one of the most important things that a couple needs to do before fixing the marriage. But I didn't do so. Personally I don't believe it but for someone who believes like my family members. They say - Horoscope is the most transcendental way out to plan for these important aspects of life in advance. A completely professional reading of horoscope provides extremely detailed information related to the interactions of a wide range of astrological elements and how they create impact on life of the subject. This helps the subject to take right steps and remedies for any uncanny things written on his card! This is how horoscope is really very important in life.

I used to read horoscopes like mad, I used to read it everyday and follow every word. Sometimes, it seemed acurate and other times a bit vaue, but then I started to read the horoscope from other signs and then realised that it was all very vague and each one had things that could have happened to anyone and anywhere and if something that happened to you that did match up with what was stated in the horoscope then it really would possibly be just a coincidence...

I don't believe in horoscopes since they are completely fake. It is possible that something of your horoscope became real, and there is a reason for that. People get more and more intensed with reading at, they start paying attention to those things in the horoscopes. And all of a sudden, without your real knowing, you will live into that way so you'll experience something. So actually the horoscope makes you adjust yourself to what is given within. It does not at all give real information about what will happen and what will not. Just nonsense, nothing else...

Life is a very complex thing to deal with. It's not any game where you can say I've won or I've lost. You use your brain as much as your heart as you travel its path. Occasionally, it's nice to hear what the astrologers say or the advise from people around. But ultimately, you decide because you pay! Simply, I wouldn't let my life to be dictated by horoscope. I don' believe in it!

Well i never believed in horoscopes as they are nothing much 2 me. My mother believes in them so i believe her belief in horoscopes. No offense. I am just more practical in life but i let fate play it out when i have no choice. There my mother is always behind me when i am supporting faith. Like the day before results she was offering a lot of prayers to god and asking him to get me good marks. I know that god can't do that but only i can...what can you tell your moms in such situations...so i also kept quiet and continued with her...

I never used to believe these things in life as i was not at all interested also, but all my belief and interests changed later after reading some good books like linda goodmans as it made me believe there are many things which are unknown to us and also many things what they had written were true and this is really surprising.So, these studies are for real and read some good books like linda goodmans and even your belief might change like mine if you don't believe in such studies

To be honest ,I'm a atheist,I don't believe in Horoscopes, but on the other hand ,I'm the agnosticismer,I believe that there is much of things that human don't know ,many phenomena can't be explain by existing science knowledge,don't you think it's right? In my country ,there is many heres of the introditional culture,many of them can use it to forecast not only your life of futre,but also other things. In this area,there is a famous word say "if you believe ,it's ture,if you don't, it's not" and I've also heard about many very supernatural story of Horoscopes. So sometimes I'm really puzzled and don't know what to believe now. That it is.

Hi, chix Nope, I do not believe in horoscopes. But I do like reading my horoscope once in a while. I do not even use it as a guide. I just marvel at the coincidence whenever my horoscope sort of relates to my activities or feelings for the day. And then I forget about it. Cheers!

It would be so simple for us to have our individual personality traits explained by the creative world of Horoscopes, I once went through a real obsessive phase of reading several very informative books on my dual Taurus/Aries on the cusp birth sign, only to ever feel more and more confused about who I really thought I was. They are only guide-books as you said, no more than that and those that do take it literally, are often very insecure about themselves, they need answers to complex questions no Astrologer can tell you why it is you prefer some things and not others for example - what you like and don't like, more usually comes from childhood experiences and grows with you into adulthood. The real job of a qualified Astrologer is to give a brief outline of someone's general personality traits based upon a very ancient scriptures that incorporate the planets movements, not to inform you of what you should or shouldn't do from one day to the next; this really ought to be banned as a marketing ploy to get people to spend their money and nothing more than this. I no longer read the articles I used to when I am a lot more certain of who I am now that I have grown older and wiser. I believe more in 'gut feeling' than Horoscopes because it's how you think and feel that is more important and the most trusted guide to follow. What people have to consider if they are struggling to decide if they believe in Horoscopes or not, is that we change from one day to the next and because life always presents challenges we must learn to make our own decisions, otherwise you will continually live in fear and uncertainty about what course of action to take.

Well I personaly don't believe in them, yet each time I read a magazine or newspaper they are the first thing I search for hehe. I read my starsign and the guy I likes to see if anything will happen between us (never does though):( I think horoscopes only tell us what we want to hear, so we have some 'fantasy' to look forward to. They can't be directed at every person with the same sign, just imagine how many capricorns are in the world, is each of them going to win the lottery at the same time? I think they make a good read, but we shouldn't rely on them too much.

I don't believe horoscopes a lot, but sometimes they say things that are creepy and accurate. I belong to daily horoscope on Facebook, but I use that more for amusement than to actually plan my life.

I do not believe in the daily horoscopes you read in the paper. I do not believe it is possible that everyone born between April 20 and May 21 will have the same thing happen to them on Friday. But on another level I am more accepting of Astrology, particularly when an astrologer casts someone's natal chart revealing things in their life based upon the exact positions of the stars and planets at the precise time of their birth. These can be quite complex and beyond my knowledge of Astronomy. I cannot say I am a real believer, but I do not entirely reject astrology.

to be honest, i don't believe in horoscope because it predict people in mass. Let say, people who born in march, all will have same luck. i think it is definitely impossible. However, reading horoscope was fun, i always laugh when the guess and prediction.

I don't believe in horoscopes, but sometimes these horoscopes surprise me. Well, there was this one time in my life, I watched a TV game show. The lady who was playing that game on the TV was asked to choose only one color from the other three colors that she had chosen (white, orange and gold). That lady was really nervous, I can really see it on the way she talks. Then, she said that she rode on a bus before going to that game show. She was watching a horoscope tv show inside the bus. According to that horoscope tv show, her lucky color would be gold. After telling that story, she chose gold. The people started screaming and yelling "orange", because the color of the shirt that the game showhost was wearing, was orange. The lady then changed her color to orange. Then the host of the game, opened the color orange, and no prize was won. He then opened the gold color, and to the surprise of everyone, it contained the special prize which is millions of cash. I think it was just coincidence. But there is really nothing wrong about believing on such things. It is just a matter of how strong your faith is. I feel sad for the lady who won nothing. If she just believed, then she would have won :D

I won't put my faith into their truth. They are fun to read. Sometimes they can be accurate, but most often for me they have not been.

I am also a libran. I dont believe in horoscopes. Like art and science horoscope is not 100% right. It does not happen to us, but we tend to follow it. If i read the daily horoscope and it says I need to wear blue shirt, I will see that I wear a blue shirt without any reason. Its all senseless. Our attitude makes a lot fo difference. We make things happen not horoscope. Finally we blame the stars and planets for what happens.

horoscopes only guides us but not telling us to follow them right?i also do not believe in any horoscopes or any astrological readings.we are the one making our destiny by working hard other failed others not.although i believe if you are born to be rich you'll die being rich too.others are luck because of chances and what they already have in their life.
