Do I believe in Astrology?

I like Astrology because I could have written the Virgo profile below myself. I believe these things are just tools to understanding personality. OBVIOUSLY, it may not fall in line with yours, because, not all tools are for everyone. The issue with Astrology comes when you begin to TRUST IN it. The tendency for man to put the responsibility for his choice on someone or something else is VERY HIGH, so you see how a simple tool can be turned into a weapon of mass destruction. These things can only illuminate a pathway, but they can't build the pathway. IT is up to each and everyone of us to make the choice to live a certain way, to live the best way, to work on our weaknesses and use our strengths for good. Don't allow anybody's prediction stir your life, if the words are not comforting, no need to fret, you have the power of choice in your own hands. God's Words are the final on my life and anything that contradicts it, I do not accept.

Isaiah 8:19 -20
Someone may say to you, “Let’s ask the mediums and those who consult the spirits of the dead. With their whisperings and mutterings, they will tell us what to do.” But shouldn’t people ask God for guidance? Should the living seek guidance from the dead?
Look to God’s instructions and teachings! People who contradict his word are completely in the dark. They will go from one place to another, weary and hungry. And because they are hungry, they will rage and curse their king and their God. They will look up to heaven and down at the earth, but wherever they look, there will be trouble and anguish and dark despair. They will be thrown out into the darkness.

Virgo (All things in bold are on point)

Virgo born have medium height, attractive eyes, rather longish nose and a soft body. They are soft spoken, shy, laid back and practical. They are imaginative, sensitive and possess a keen intellect. They observe the minute things around them and nothing escapes their scrutiny. This coupled with their practical and orderly mind make them great researchers and scientists. They have a retentive memory and are studious by nature. There is a special attraction to music and poetry.

They like peace and quiet surroundings. Bars and discotheques are generally not on their social agenda. They are adaptable and can thrive even in adverse conditions. They tend to multitask and can take up several projects simultaneously. They love to travel and can become a successful tour operator and travel writer.

Virgo is a dual sign and so their aspirations and goals keep changing. They choose knowledge over money most times. They are frugal and do not spend needlessly.

Their stomach and digestion are sensitive and they know it ( I ignore it most times, nothing plagues me like stomach ailments ). Regular exercise and diet with a good amount of fiber works very well for them. Influence of Saturn on ascendant causes wind related issues and hyper acidity.

Venus owns the second house of money. Should Mercury and Venus become conjunct, Virgo born can become quite successful. Their chosen fields are teaching, writing, scientific research etc. They can also become successful traders.

Emerald is their birthstone and keeps their health and mental faculties at their peak. They benefit greatly from a diamond as well.

25th, 32nd, 35th, 36th, and 42nd years are lucky.

It was interesting. There is a clear difference between that and Astrology. Horoscopes are really not something to put your trust in, if it doesn't give you hope, trash it! lol

thanx to Gamine and Gamine85 i started paying more attention to astrology and i realised its not so different from yoruba's ifa checking,back then and even now,people would consult ifa about their child's star,future,opportunities,etc,i have realised most of this things can be almost totally accurate so i pay more attention to my astrological sign but i still cnt get myself to read d daily astrological predictions!

People are quick to throw these things away. God won't have made us able to access these tools if they weren't useful for something. And like I said, there is a dangerous aspect of it. Ifa is much deeper than these I believe. Infact, I'm still researching to map out all the links all the way from Ifa to all these modern personality tests, because they admit to haven being based on such.

The thing is, you shouldn't look to it to predict your future, especially as a Christian, that's not where your identity is.

True astrology doesn't claim to be able to predict the future sef. Nothing can.

very true!even if u predict the future,that singular act has changed the future...Ifa is def deeper!!
