Impossible to see, the future is.
At Pancho's Mexican Buffet tonight I grabbed one of those free newspaper type whammies.
Out of curiosity, I read my horoscope for this week:
"Cooperation and teamwork among family members and friends, are excellent now, and a successful collective accomplishment is also likely. Lucky numbers: 20, 21, 25, 29, 40, 43" (sic)
It got me thinking about how silly astrology is, not to mention the deviltry aspect of it.
The Bible prohibits such tomfoolery being used for guidance in life's decisions (e.g., Is 47:13-14), but, even from a scientific perspective it has problems.
First, it treats the sun & moon as planets and yet doesn't take into account the planets that were unseen back in the day.
Second, the whole thing is geared around your birth date and time. But why? What difference does it make if you leave the womb on Thursday versus Friday? Why not instead gauge from conception, the moment life begins and the person's DNA, etc. begins to form?
Third, the whole thing is geo-centric as opposed to understanding that it is the sun which is orbited at the center of the solar system.
Some like to look to the stars to learn about their future and what they should do. There's nothing wrong with looking to the stars per se, just be sure to see the clearly intended message.
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
-Psalm 19:1 (ESV)
(cf. John Piper's 1981 sermon "Jesus Versus the Occult.")
