Why do people put so much stock into horoscopes?
I’m not trying to start a fight or insult anyone, and if I offend you I apologize right now because that’s not my intention.
I’m just wondering why people put so much stock into horoscopes. It just seems wrong to me when someone makes a life altering decision (ex: relationship wise) based completely on a horoscope, or they judge someone with a certain horoscope based on his/her horoscope without getting to know them.
I haven’t ever gotten into horoscopes but this is just what I see when surfing Yahoo Answers.

People like to think that there is a way to know what is going to happen. They like to believe in fortune, fate, premonition because these things give them comfort. These things say that the future is not a complete mystery, and that people don’t need to be afraid of it.
It gives people false hope. It makes people sit around waiting for their fortunes and horoscopes to come true and not take initiative.
Also, horoscopes are generally positive. It makes people believe good things will happen to them.

The answer is simple. People are gullible and often stupid. Horoscopes make general predictions that people twist to fit their life. People want to be sure of the future and go to great lengths to believe that there is a way to be sure.

Truth time I can see both sides of the coin. I like astrology b/c its pretty accurate at times, it gives you something to think about and has helped numerous people find themselves and understand certain aspects and maybe even change the negative ones. Plus it’s fun.
On the other side I can see it as something people who like to control things use to feel like they have some control in their lives and some of it is hog wash. It’s been given a bad name by bad apples. People who are exploiting it for the money, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have relevance.
Our forefathers were astrologist. Newton and Franklin, Dee and Kelly were all GREAT thinkers and they believed in this and used it as a science if you will. Alchemist used planetary positions, gave them names and used them to unlock some of the secrets of the universe.
It really upsets me when people get on here and blast astrology. I don’t make it a habit to go on christian websites and tell them since there is not real proof christ exist then they are all crazy liars. I just wish people would mind their own business at times.

people like to hear that there is a light at the end of the dark tunnel.
people who are often in bad economic situations or are in a bad love life like to believe horoscopes, because it gets their hopes up. there is a so called astrologist on the spanish channel univision’s primetime news Primer Impacto. the guy’s name is walter mercado, and it is funny to hear him, he does funny gestures, while enlightening people with positive horoscopes.
i don’t believe in horoscopes, but it sure is funny to see a homosexual looking dude, with a different dress or “robe” on everyday, flailing his hands while telling me that others will depend on me.
