Are horoscopes that you read online true?
No, absolutely not. This is just my opinion, but those live horoscope things and psychics are a scam to me. I don't mean that they aren't "gifted", just that they charge you $5 and feed you a tiny bit of info, then for another $5 they'll tell you more, and it just keep going from there. I wouldn't do it, especially when there are plenty of free horoscopes floating around the internet.
Is reading horoscopes/astrology considered a bad thing from a christian point of view?
"Whatever things are true, whatever things are of serious concern, whatever things are righteous, whatever things are chaste, whatever things are loveable, whatever things are well spoken of, whatever virtue there is & whatever praiseworthy thing there is, continue considering these things. The things you learned as well as accepted & heard in connection with me, practice these, & the God of peace be with you." -- Philippians 4:8,9 Is Astrology the Key to Your Future? - What Is Astrology? - A Long History of Failure ... - In Conflict With Bible Teachings ... http://watchtower.org/library/g/2005/8/8/article_01.htm That^ online article is one of a series, called, "The Bible's Viewpoint". It gives just that, not any particular denomination of Christendom's viewpoint. Those are its subheadings listed with it.
I have an inquisitive mind and I���m very much fascinated by Astrology. I especially like to go to those astrologers that have a unique way of reading your past/present/ future.Every astrologer that I have met in my life will accurately tell past with a lot of details and time when it occurred in life. I always find this surprising how easily they can tell someone’s past with a mere glimpse.Some of them will be very close telling about the present. What’s going in your professional and personal life, marriage, career, studies/job, abroad etc. either you’re already in the process of doing it or planning to do so very soon. This is very expected and you know it’s already been going in your life.Then comes future and let me tell you Future is unknown/uncertain and it can be changed anytime by your freewill. Every astrologer will tell you about your future like marriage, kids, profession, life, death, any major accidents, diseases, debts/liabilities, property, legal matters etc.I have tried regular astrology that tells everything based on the birth chart, palmistry(telling past/future reading your palm), Naadi jyotish(south Indian astrology predicted after locating your palm leaves based on your thumb impression), Signature analysis(predictions are purely made looking at your signature)One thing is common in all of them that they all predicted my past like they already had a copy of it and were just narrating it to me. Second, all have predicted my future in a way that I can't make out whether my future will bring good or bad things for me. “Confusing” Few things never occurred, few important things were not predicted by them. Like I said future can be changed with freewill and I believe I changed it somehow.Naadi jyotish is more detailed and the astrologer predicted with specific years in life till my death. it will be intersting to see these predictions will either come true or fail miserably. Once again i will say some (future) stuff was never predictied by him and things happened in life after I met this astrologer. Maybe I changed them somehow.Signature analysis astrologer did mention few things in a short sentence about what I may expect but he didn't provide detailed info. His predictions were more accurate it seems and he never asked any personal details except my signature for prediction “unbelievable”Palmistry is a hit and miss but the good thing is lines on our palm change quite frequently as we mature or make mistakes and learn from them.
Do anyone of you believe in horoscopes or do you think it is a total waste of time explain why?
Sure I do, or I wouldn't waste my time in the Horoscopes but... to read only ones Sun sign, ( Newspaper,Horoscope) is to use Astrology in it's weakest form. So to think people can be accurate with a newspaper horoscope, would only be right, about 1/12th of the time.To use a complete Astrological chart of the exact time, and location of birth, is absolutely always constant. Astrology is a system (communication) a perfectly logical system that's often described as equal parts "science" and art. Whatever you call it, it works. Honest. So it's not about believing. It's about (communication) understanding yourself, and others better. About drawing parallels between the movements of real planets in our universe, that follow precise mathematical orbits. If you have an open mind, and want to learn a brand knew way to (communicate) in a language that will fascinate, befuddle, educate, and enlighten you. Then explore for yourself, and other peoples, a new language. Remember belief is not required, an open mind is. If you want to explore for yourselves go to Astro.com enter your information and progress from Horoscopes to detailed Astrology. P.S. I rarely read my chart until the end of the day. This way I don't place any expectations on how it should be, and miss opportunities for growth in the moments. Peace & Knowledge
Have your horoscopes ever come true ?
This doesn't belong here, but yes, there has once been a strong correlation between a horoscope and something significant which happened in my life. This isn't to say that i believe, but it's important to be honest about my experience and to be utterly dispassionate rather than biassed against something just because it seems intuitively implausible. Having said that, i actually think astrology works better as a form of memory theatre than a scientific system, by which i mean that it's a useful way, for example, to classify plants in the absence of Linnaean-style taxonomy - herbs of Mars, herbs of Venus etc. Similarly, without the periodic table it actually makes a lot of sense to categorise metals as belonging to various planets as a way of remembering their chemical and physical properties. In a sense, it's even better because it's easier to remember, being picturesque and engaging the whole brain rather than merely the analytical part. I'm a herbalist. There's a branch of pre-modern medicine called iatromathematics which attempts to correlate astrology with health. I used natal horoscopes and medical history data from patients' records to find a correlation, not with the traditional Melothesic model as such but with any correlation at all between sun signs and health conditions as well as the quadruplicities and elements, and found that the correlation with a random distribution was very high indeed. On that basis, i would reject iatromathematics entirely (but i don't think i can get my work published, unfortunately).
Love stories are written in the stars. For those of our readers that follow astrology, you are most likely dating someone that is compatible with your sign. But does that matter if you really want a relationship to work. Does horoscope compatibility actually play a factor in the success of your relationship? The answer will surprise you, horoscope does not affect your relationship unless you make your relationship around specific aspects of your horoscope and focus on your potential suitors as must being a “Leo” or “Gemini” because otherwise, it won’t work with your sign. The sad part about this reality is you may be shutting out others that would suit you much better but their signs simply don’t add up.“Only 15 percent of women said they would change what they did based on a horoscope. But the study also found that astrology is taken pretty seriously by a lot of people.”- Rose Eveleth (writer & producer)It all boils down to what you believe. Scientifically speaking, one sign is not more compatible with another sign and your marriage will not fail if you “marry the wrong sign.” However, if you are someone who believes astrology plays a factor incompatibility then it will affect it in the form of a self-fulfilling prophecy.“I recently asked myself: What would social science have to say to a matchmaker? Damn little. Measures of personality don't predict anything, but how people interact does. Couples need to feel they are building something together that has meaning.”- John Gottman (marriage expert & author)According to a dating and relationship expert Nancy Slotnick, you want to be with someone that is not just like you, you want to be with someone that challenges you and makes you a better person. Yes, it is nice to have common likes and values because you need to share some things in common. If you base your relationship solely on your likenesses if one person changes or waivers in some aspect of his or her life then your relationship will also change drastically.
Am I placing too much importance on Zodiac Compatibility?
Do you accept discrimination based on race, gender, and ethnic background? No one choose these when they are born. Please explain what makes using a calendar better? Astrology is magical thinking fortune telling that some people think should be a lifestyle. It is ancient, made up, unproved, and bigoted. This is from another source: Astrology and racism share many of the same ideas. For one thing, in both cases a person is being judged by factors beyond their control. Just as people have no control over their skin color, they also have no ability to determine when and where they were born. Both astrology and racial stereotypes are based on a framework of belief that basically says: "Without even meeting you, I believe something about you. I can expect this particular sort of behavior or trait (stubbornness, laziness, arrogance, etc.) from members of this particular group of people (Jews, blacks, Aries, Pisces, etc.)." When an astrologer finds out a person’s astrological sign, he or she will bring to that experience a pre-existing list of assumptions (prejudices) about that person’s behavior, personality and character. In both cases, the prejudices will cause people to seek out and confirm their expectations. Racists will look for examples of characteristics and behaviors in the groups they dislike, and astrologers will look for the personality traits that they believe the person will exhibit. Since people have complex personalities (all of us are lazy some of the time, caring at other times, etc.), both racists and astrologers will find evidence confirming their beliefs. Of course, astrologers are not racists. But the belief systems underlying both viewpoints are identical: prejudging individuals based on general beliefs about a group. If we do not assume that African-Americans are lazy, Arabs are terrorists, or Asians are scholastic geniuses, why would we assume that Cancers are emotional, Aries are born leaders, or Geminis are optimistic non-conformists? People should be judged as unique, individual persons, not based on what arbitrary group they belong to. To paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr., a person should be judged not by the color of their skin -- nor the date and time of their birth -- but by the content of their character.
No, it hasn't. That is because horoscopes aren't written for individuals. They are a general estimation how transiting planets may or may not effect key zodiac signatures at a given time.A detailed chart synopsis for a single date whether it is an event or person, can give you a good guess on the basic 'energy' surrounding that specific day/time, etc...To do this accurately, one would need to call on a series of tools and interpretations, including, but in no way limited to: planet/asteroid declinations, fixed star placements, transiting planets, progressions, natal clock of destiny, planetary returns solar/lunar/saturn, etc..), longitudinal correlations with declinations, and the current location of said event. In addition to all of these, in the case of forecasting or planning ahead, one may increase chances of expected outcomes by integrating hyper geometric calculations, and some Ben Franklin astrology. Ben Franklin astrology as they call it has been eluded as being the final depositor in deciding the date of incorporation for the United States (July 4th, 1776). I wasn't there, I can't confirm. I do enjoy conducting research on the implementation of Ben Franklin astrology with Behenian fixed stars.
