Is reading my astrology wrong?

Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Deuteronomy 18:10-11

Anyone who reads their astrological forecast, consults a palm reader, goes to a séance or reads a book about a guy who talks to the dead is saying that there are spirits and practices outside the Lord that control or know our destiny. Those that follow those practices are really saying that God shares his power with these spirits or that God doesn’t exist at all.

Astrology believes the alignment of stars or the day and month of our birth has some kind of influence over people’s day or foreknowledge of that day’s events.

The truth is most astrologers make that stuff up. 

Why does it seem that some astrological predictions come true?   When someone has their forecast read, their minds are ready to make that forecast come true.  It comes true because they want it to come true to prove that it is true.

Many of the things written in an astrology are vague.  “You will have a difficult day.”  Everyone faces something every day that is difficult.  “You will find happiness.”  Everyone can find something to make them happy every day.  If it’s vague and not specific, a person can fill in the specifics and make it sound true.

Also, if you read five forecasts and one comes true, it will seem that astrology works.  We are only believing the odds and chances, not the real truth.

Only God knows the future. Only God controls the events of this world. Only God has our best interests in mind.  Not the stars.

So it is wrong to take part in any kind of astrology, palm reading, tarot card reading or fortune telling.
