Love it

For one thing, they take all the fun out of life!  How much faith and self-actualization can be established in a life that turns to a newspaper astrologer for the supposed highlights of their own life?  

How can a stranger present a worthwhile view of the life of a soul they've never met?  It's like asking a doctor to diagnose a patient they've never seen.

For another thing, divination is a sacred skill that few astrological forecasters truly possess.

People who genuinely have the talent for divination would never misuse it in such a frivolous and irresponsible manner.

Reading someone's horoscope is a sacred and serious subject among professional and responsible astrologers, because we know that the human tendency is to submit to the power of suggestion.

Responsible astrologers never express anything definitive about a person’s life because we respect free will.

Newspaper astrologers make educated guesses about what can go on in the life of each the twelve Zodiac signs.  

We consult and often believe these predictions because we forget or refuse to ask ourselves, "What kind of day do I want to have today?"  "What is my purpose today?"  "Am I willing to remember who I am and why I'm here today?"  

Instead, we turn to actual strangers, and accept their report of our life, completely ignoring, or worse, trampling our free will.

Editors don't edit forecasts

According to our local paper, the Herald and News, editors print forecasts because that’s what people demand, but the newspaper itself exerts no editorial jurisdiction as far as accuracy, professionalism, or credibility of source.  

Basically, periodicals print forecasts because they have to, not because they want to.

Free will isn't for everyone

Several year ago, I worked for a Turkish man who had himself grown up and briefly raised his family in Iran, before moving to the states while his two daughters were quite young.

After a visit back to their native homeland in Iran when the two girls were teenagers, an unexpected desire came over the girls.  

They expressed their sincere interest in returning to Iran to live once they came of age.

The life of a woman in Iran offers nothing close by comparison to the opportunities of one in the United States.  

My puzzled boss and his concerned wife listened as the two girls explained their reasons.

Life in Iran, while severly restricted for a woman, was secure.  They would not be confronted with and tormented by the myriad of choices they would have to constantly be faced with here.  Their lives would be easier, they agreed, without the right to choose.

Sheep need herding; humans need healing  

We rant and rave about having our personal power usurped by religious leaders, or governmental policies, or partial authoritarians, then turn around and check our daily astrological forecast to see what kind of a day we're going to have.    

This might be one of the reasons why it is said that we only use about 10% of our brain power!

Why are we still so reluctant to think for ourselves or face our own destiny each day with the amazing tools life has supplied us with?  Why are we still so eager for someone or something else to tell us who we are?

Astrological forecasts interfere with the communication between soul and personality; imposing a third party opinion about something they literally know nothing about.

It's just for fun!  

It's true.  Many people will excuse, defend or explain their daily habit of reading astrological forecasts by saying that it's just for fun.  This might be the conscious intention, but it's the subconscious we need to consider more seriously.

The problem is that our subconscious has no sense of humor, and regards all information that comes its way as food for our consciousness.  

The information contained in these entertaining forecasts gets assimilated into our system and cataloged into our subconscious where it lives and moves and creates our being.  

We might think it's just for fun, but how has our destiny become such a trite and laughing matter?

Love it
