Astrology was never truly occult. It was actually practiced openly in biblical times and evidence shows it was a tool used by the ancient civilizations starting in Babylonia. It was not created as an occult science because it was never hidden or secret on its own.
This brings us to reading your horoscope. The first characteristic of something occultic is the disclosure or communication of information unavailable to humans through normal means. This involves things like horoscopes, fortune-telling, psychic hotlines, and tarot cards.
The daily horoscope can easily influence us from time to time. It is a way in which we open ourselves to the occult. Exorcists also attest to the demonic influence of horoscopes as some people who become possessed or influenced by a demon often start out by reading horoscopes.
Do You Believe in horoscopes?
Even though millions of people follow horoscopes with greater or lesser interest, this is still a type of fortune telling. Even if you say you do not believe in horoscopes, and only read your own for fun, you should abandon this practice. The daily horoscope can easily influence us from time to time.
Another query we ran across in our research was “Are horoscopes against god?”.
However, astrology and horoscopes are pretty offensive to God’s teachings. It attributes God’s hard work to stars and planets. God alone used His powers to create your life, and has a plan for you that He will reveal on His timing.
We cannot determine God’s will for our lives through horoscopes. Consulting a horoscope is a violation of God’s means of communicating with His children. We strongly believe that horoscopes should be rejected by Christians.

Does astrology oppose biblical teaching?
Faith in anything besides God is misplaced. Astrology, then, opposes biblical teaching in at least two ways: it advocates faith in something other than God, and it is a form of divination. We cannot determine God’s will for our lives through horoscopes.
Astrology is offensive to God because it attributes to planets and stars the power that belongs to God alone and because it tries to find the will of God by other means than God has appointed.
