I feel as if people believe in astrology for the same reason they would believe in anything else that offered them a sense of assurance on future information. It could make the individual feel a sense of security and possibly offer better decisions for those who do believe so much in it. Although some aspects of astrology are interesting to me, I do not take it seriously and revolve my entire life around it like some people. I personally believe that astrology is based off of vague assumptions. If an astrologer gave you a horoscope to read and said it was for your sign would you believe it after reading it even though after the fact the astrologer lied and said it was for another sign? For example, how would you know the difference between a passage describing your zodiac sign and someone else’s if you did not know the sign it was referring to in the first place?
