Most people only know about astrology from the horoscope columns they read in newspapers and magazines. But, those forecasts are for entertainment purposes only and should never be taken seriously. If they seem even remotely accurate, rest assured it is only by coincidence, because those columns have almost no bearing on the legitimate practice of astrology. Here are a few other myths about astrology that should also be dispelled:
1. Astrology is not a religion, nor is it affiliated or associated with any religion or with satanism or with any specific belief system. You can believe in and participate in any religion you choose and still practice astrology.
2. Astrology is about symbolism and has nothing to do with any purported physical energy emanating from a planet, moon, or star.
3. Astrology cannot be used to predict an event, only the possibility of an event occurring, or a good time for a particular type of event to take place.
4. Astrology is only a guide, a map of the potential in your life. However, no two people born at the exact same time and place will have the exact same life. The very nature of astrology speaks to your exercise of "free will" and the many choices and options you have for how you live your life.
