Many will say yes; it is considered occultish.


Very. You are likely to burn in hell for all eternity. Feel better now?


The old Christian church (When christianity first started) wanted pagans to feel guilty for not being in the church so most of the practices of the outsiders were labeled as bad, including astrology.
Rahab, just to clear things up, do you even know what Occult means?


Don’t believe what you here from others!


Yes, because it is soothsaying/witchcraft, which is forbidden in the Bible.


christians say theyre evil
…but ADULTS should know better …evil spirits arent real


Our asistant pastor says that it is. Borders on the dark side.


The Bible instructs us not to believe in this stuff.

So now observing the earth and experiencing life is a bad thing?
Oh, right, I don’t think so, I’m an atheist, I think its beautiful to observe and gain as much knowledge as possible.

I don’t think it’s bad…
I don’t beleive in them, sometimes I just read them for fun though.


yes it is…


astrology & horoscopes are sins

Only if you think it is. The basic belief to avoid astrology comes from the old testament. Actually the idea of astrology predates Christianity and was used by the Babylonians and other cultures that predate the Bible.


According to God’s word that is not acceptable for His children
we don’t need the signs of the enemy
the sign of the cross is ours

kind of. because you are turning to other sources for guidance in your life. you should be praying to god for your day…. you judge someone else based on your christian values rather than zodiac signs…

Well you can’t really ask someone if it is wrong or right. If you feel it is bad- even a smidge -it is sinful.
I like to read them for fun, but I don’t take them seriously. Their usually wrong anyway lol.

the chosen one

The God Yahweh does warn us in The Old Testament to stay away from fortune tellers and those who speak to the dead. But I am also guilty of reading my daily horoscope since one of them years ago told me to look to them for God’s guidance for a new discovery I’ve made concerning proving that Yahweh exists. Which I have been and some have given me goose bumps after reading them.


IF you let it rule your life it is. Back in the days of Jesus, the psychics and Astrollogers were not religious, but rather worshiped what they did. I believe that there is some base in them, but you should not worship them.


The LORD hates it , forbids it, and punishes those who practice it.
Deuteronomy 18:10-12
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you.
Isaiah 47:12-14
“ Stand now with your enchantments
And the multitude of your sorceries,
In which you have labored from your youth–
Perhaps you will be able to profit,
Perhaps you will prevail.
You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels;
Let now the astrologers, the stargazers,
And the monthly prognosticators
Stand up and save you
From what shall come upon you.
Behold, they shall be as stubble,
The fire shall burn them;
They shall not deliver themselves
From the power of the flame;
It shall not be a coal to be warmed by,
Nor a fire to sit before!
Jeremiah 29:8
For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Do not let your prophets and your diviners who are in your midst deceive you, nor listen to your dreams which you cause to be dreamed.


Hope is right. I commend you for asking, keep on seeking the Lord’s will.


oh come on people first of all if god is all loving he is not going to punish someone for reading a horoscope and second there is no such thing as hell that is a story made up by man himself when we die we all go to one place back home to heaven there is the left door a dark and sad place only for people who kill and child molesters rapist people like that he has no time to be worried about what you are reading on this hell we already live in called ”earth” he expects people to do wrong when we are here on earth so stop telling untrue nasty story’s and get a life

Why did all the Pagan peoples of Northern Europe convert to Christianity so readily?

How could people who had such a belief system ingrained in them for thousands of years, so quickly adopt Christianity?
