    I think to say “reading” one’s horoscope is different from “consulting” one’s horoscope is splitting a mighty fine hair.

    The road to hell is not a cliff, but a gradual slope.

    Read the Screwtape Letters for more insight. The greatest hoodwink the devil ever pulled off was convincing so many people he didn’t exist.

    Christianity isn’t about conpromise with the ways of the world, it is about being counter-cultural… it is a way to Life in th emidst of a culture of death.

    Involvement in horoscopes, psychics, new age, and any form of divination is forbidden, and breaks the 1st. Commandment, which means committing mortal sin, and not being in the grace of God. See Catechism #2116.
    Stay away from all new age pagan concepts which has arrived like a demonic tsunami to take people away from the true God. See Pontifical document called “Jesus Christ, the Bearer of the Water of Life”.

    Trust in Jesus and Mary!!

    Oh, come on, Beth. By that logic, you don’t take your car to a mechanic, you don’t go to a doctor, you don’t consult a specialist for any problem. Not saying that astrology is accurate, but if it gives comfort, what’s the harm? And what’s the need to micro-manage someone else’s life? “Is it okay for Catholics to look at their horoscope?” Say what? Really, for someone or some entity to have such a need to control is nothing short of pathological.

  • Beth

    Why would you bother? I think it’s putting hope in something other than God which seems foolish because the hope God gives is so great and abundant.
