    The next time someone comes up to you and asks you what your sign is, throw them a spiritual curve ball by telling them that your sign is, "The blood stained cross of Jesus!"

    "The stars should awaken wonder at God’s power, wisdom, and infinitude. We should use the stars to keep track of time and place and to remind us of God’s faithful, covenant-keeping nature. Astrology is the “interpretation” of an assumed influence the stars (and planets) exert on human destiny. This is a false belief. "

    For info on Astrological signs and the believer, SEE: http://www.gotquestions.org/astrology-Bible.html

    I urge all of you who love Jesus, and are born-again, to consider that astrological science is a false belief. It needs to be left behind you in a prayer of repentance, and never again referenced to while on the narrow path to heaven. The Bible and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit's power with you should suffice in getting you from one place to another, based on your faith!

    See also the following verses:

    Micah 5:12 - Amplified Bible (AMP)
    And I will cut off witchcrafts and sorceries from your hand, and you shall have no more soothsayers.

    Isaiah 47:13 - ESV
    You are wearied with your many counsels; let them stand forth and save you, those who divide the heavens, who gaze at the stars, who at the new moons make known what shall come upon you.

    Leviticus 19:31 - Amplified Bible (AMP)
    Turn not to those [mediums] who have familiar spirits or to wizards; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.

    The science of the Zodiack is kin and a spiritual link to the occult. It is something no born-again child of God should be dabbling with.

    So, do you believe there is any harm in dabbling with the Astrological /Zodiack Sciences? :type:

    Spiritual harm? I don't think so. But a definite harm to your reputation. People that trust in astrology might as well walk around with a big sign taped on their back saying I'M STUPID.

    I think sometimes we trivialize stuff like astrology. I understand when Christians say it means nothing since it is fake or not real. I'm not sure, I don't think we should give Satan any edge even if it sounds fake.
