This week a company has offered to send out 'horoscopes' to 20 reviewers. It has stirred up a bit of a hornet's nest though which we weren't really expecting!

I don't believe in horoscopes or any other so-called 'psychic' stuff, but it all seems pretty harmless to me. However it would appear that some people are very 'anti' horoscopes and feel that the whole concept isagainst Christian values.

I'd be interested to hear what you have to say......

Although Im Christian and have been christened im not particular religious, my family never have been, so I suppose it just sort of passes down to me like that.

Ive always been quite interested in horoscopes though, I often read mine and other peoples. I dont really believe in all of the psychic stuff that comes with it, but in my eyes I just see it as a bit of harmless fun. I once went to a psychic night and I was pretty amazed at it all - I mean I only really went there to see what it was like and see what all the contraversy was surrounding the subject, but I found these people fascinating. They knew so much, yet dont know you? Quite strange really :shock:

In my eyes horoscopes etc are all pretty much harmless :D

Harmless as far as I am concerned. Its like anything else in life -- you take what you want from it! I cant see the harm as if people dont want to be involved in it then no-one is forcing them. I quite like them lol :lol: , but I certainly dont live my life by it or take it too seriously.

I am a Christian, I was baptised and confirmed, married in our local church - attended sunday school and brownies/guides/rangers when I was younger (and church camp :oops:) and I have had Isabelle and Josh baptised, and Eliana will be in October, I have an element of faith, but I dont regularly attend church etc. I also regularly flick to the back of my glossy mags to check my horoscope, and I also have had a couple of psychic readings at parties and things - I dont understand it but then explain Jesus being born again so I think its all about persopnal belief and as Jess said its very strange how psychics can know so much about you without actually knowing you. I definetly wouldnt take offence to someone reading or giving me a horoscope - afterall a little bit of positive suggestion into what might be is great to give something to look forward to, so definetly a bit of harmless fun in my mind :D

I fail to see how something such as horoscopes can be seen as offensive given other things occuring in the world in a much more public way. As they are, they are completely harmless. I don't pay any attention to them now that I am one of the most cynical people I know :lol: , but I can't see them doing any harm to anyone. However, I guess it boils down to how they are interpreted by the people whom read them and what they take from it, like everything else in life. Harmless in my opinion though.

I wanted to say I agree with Lizi, I am a practising christain, with my children we attend church and I am a voluntary youth worker with my church. However I would not be bothered by horoscopes, quite like reading my own and have an interest in physic stuff as I too just like questioning our world, beliefs and abilities.

Its like halloween to, i know some christians are very against it, but my kids go trick treating with their childminder and I have no prob with that either.

I never pay any attention to them at all, but I would say they were harmless enough :)

I am a practising Christian and it is against my beliefs to follow/read horoscopes so I dont!

Putting it simply - I trust in God and not in horoscopes.

I was one of the people offered a baby horoscope and I said that I couldn't review it honestly as I dont do them.
If anyone wants to review it I could send it along to them.
Pls pm me if you would like to.

Hi Linda
I agree with you that it is your right to put your trust in your faith, and it was good that you were honest about not being able to give an honest review. We are all entitled to our beliefs x :D
