Why do people believe in horoscopes?

Don’t close this question.
I’M BACK !!
Anyways, this thing about horoscopes…People of all nationalities/cultures and ethnic groups are superstitious at some level or another, and making sense about the unknown is something that intrigues folks of all backgrounds. Another attraction to horoscope might be it looks cool (the symbols); Some people feels that it speaks volume about their as a person, take for example a person born in August might take pride in being a Leo—association with positive qualities such as bravery, risk taking, and a badge of masculine power. Some star signs have religious appeal to people: Take Virgo for instance, the nurturing aspect of a woman and her feminine purity; A personality is assigned to each month, and people who are interested in fortune telling and what it says about them are drawn to horoscope.
A secondary reason is uncertainty. Life in this world is full of unforseen circumstances. The unstable condition and prolonged bad economy caused many people to turn to whatever sounds good and may work—even if it includes turning to supersition. Ancient beliefs in the supernatural have stronghold in countries that have modernized. Another explaination could be that traditions are hard to break and are passed down from generation to generation. Fear of the unknown also drives many to seek easy route out and horoscopes posted daily pretty much predicts what’s happening next–> which is very good for people who otherwise have no clue what’s going on.
Uncertainty and fear of unknown outweighs people’s positive expectations. People having no spiritual directions easily takes in any information that promise a source of spirituality and guidance. You could say horoscope is a source of guidance, but definitely not a reliable one.
Afterall, astrology is one of Ancient Babylon’s most lasting legacy to mankind. Witchcraft, sorcery, fortune telling and other demonic arts dominate the world’s major power of that time. Babylon, Assyrian, Egypt, Greece, Rome, so on and so forth until our day. People are as uncertain about their future in the past as they are now. (Ecclesiastes 9:11). Man made predictions cannot bring true enlightenment but in the contrast had mislead many, the bible calls them “false prophets” (Psalms 101:7,8). The scripture speaks of a cutting off of those who practicers of demonic arts. Since they influence people in general and act as a medium for Satan the devil, and lead many astray through false utterances and false predictions (Isaiah 9:14-16)
For anyone (visitors, or readers) interested in a more detailed bible discussion, a good article as food for thought:

What days in september are considered a Virgo/ Libra? is september 27 considered one?
Answer by Chic
It depends on the reference guide you prefer. Some astrologists believe that a sign begins on the 22nd of each month or on the 20th. I’ve found the 22nd theory to be more accurate. In this case Libra starts on the 22nd of September and lasts until the 21st of October. You might share some cusp tendencies depending on the year.

Beyond Star Signs is a world of Astrology where every aspect of a Horoscope (Birth Chart) has meaning.
IN GENERAL (without your birth details)
Libra THE SCALES – the sign of Balance
Natural justice and the knowledge that the universe runs smoothly when there is balance is at the heart of the Libran persona. However, to get everything just right takes a certain amount of adjustment and effort. Libras are known for their ability to consider both sides and to bring together warring factions, since in Libra land the world is fully of happy contended people. Librans are liable to to adopt whatever approach is necessary to find that balance and can resort to some quite ruthless tactics at times. Think, ‘iron hand in a velvet glove’, to create harmony).
Get More from Life
You want to be loved but never fear from being controversial once you have discovered the truth.
Barrister, judge, diplomat, designer, beautician, interior decorator, designer, anything in personnel.
Advice for Partners & Friends
A good idea – keep the romance alive and the value of sharing.
Not so useful – getting jealous.
We love you at your Best …
Libra is easy going, charming and pleasant, and will work hard at relationships, since relating is the key motivation for this sign. Consequently, Librans instinctively know how to be good hosts and put others at their ease. Chances are they will have more than the usual amount of knowledge about the arts, current affairs and politics, and will be the oil that sociability glides on. Compromise comes much easier than making a firm decision.
Charming, easy going, romantic, diplomatic, idealistic, refined, in love with love.
…. Difficult to Live With!
Coming to a decision! Librans believe that the world involves wrong or right decisions and choices, whereas in actual fact, decisions bring about different paths and consequences, not necessarily right or wrong, good or bad. Agonising over the smallest of concerns can get in the way and considering that some decisions have to be made on a daily basis means that this natural tendency has to be overcome. Accepting themselves for who they are will mean that although Librans love the idea of love, they need to love themselves first and treat themselves as they would their dearest friend.
