4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Believe In Horoscopes

reasons to not believe in horoscopes

Today I will share with you guys the reasons to not believe in horoscopes. Do you have faith in horoscopes and the study of various stars that can predict your whole life?

If I am a Gemini then, are the other millions of people, in this world, who are Gemini, exactly like me? Isn’t that strange?

I mean if my horoscope says that I would have an accident today then will it be true?

If so then I guess all of the Geminis would have an accident and millions will die. Woo, it would be catastrophic.

Do you actually believe that the motion of planets, stars and moons have anything to do with your personality or your life?

If so, then you are wasting your precious time and brain on it.

Reasons to not believe in horoscopes

Here are the reasons that made me not a believer in horoscopes. (including the above argument too)

They make us believe what we want to believe:

Anyways so here I would be linking psychology with astrology.

Usually, there are personality tests conducted in psychology. These tests can come out with common predictions on your personality. The similar case is with astrology. I will explain this through my experience while giving a personality test. Usually, the statements given by astrologers are vague.

Let’s have a supposition. Try to apply this to yourself now.

If an astrologer tells you that you have suffered hard times in your life. It’s natural that you will start remembering all the negative events in your life and you will feel like “Wow! he (suppose the astrologer is a he) knows everything”

But every other person in this world has some bad memories associated with them so what was so special about that?

Now the astrologer is telling you that although you get angry you have got a soft heart and that you will be facing some problems but you will soon overcome them.

Now on the other day, my expensive watch is broken by my sibling and I feel angry at him but I won’t scold him because I now feel that I have a soft heart because I want to believe in that as I trust my horoscope. (I don’t own a watch, by the way, I have got my cell phone, it’s just an example to prove a point)

If you are asking an astrologer about your future profession. He will ask you about your interests and then reply that if you work hard then you can achieve your goal.

In case you achieved your desired profession, all the credit goes to the astrologer.

In case you fail to accomplish, again all the credit goes to the same guy as he was right that you didn’t work hard and as a result, you failed to pass through it.

It’s just a mind game people.

The predictions are not based on solid proves:

According to astrologers change in the motion of planets will have a change in your personality.

What they are saying here is that Mercury, Venice, Mars and all the other planets have an influence on our emotional or behavioral state and I don’t know their rotation or something else has everything to do the way we behave.


There are thousands of new planets that have been discovered by NASA every day (by Kepler spacecraft) out of I don’t know billion.

There are tens of billions of solar system in only our galaxy alone. So what about those planets? where they come in? Or are only these 8 Planets (Pluto is not a planet) judge the personality of people?

But still, the number of theories are being derived again and again from the motion of planets and stars.

Ok if we still believe that these planets out of trillions are the only lucky ones to make up our personality then how come one theory of a specific planet is related to the millions of people with the same zodiac sign.

If you will have an in-depth look at these things, your practicality of mind won’t accept that.

They all have Changed Views:

If you have a strong belief in astrology. I suggest you visit more than one astrologers.

You won’t find commonality in their views. That’s the most disturbing part and usually, people are unaware of it.

It was almost 9 or 10 years back when I met an astrologer, and he told me that I will be getting married with a super rich girl very soon because my “marriage stars” are all aligned. Because at that time I was only 16 years old.

A few years back I met a palmist in a festival, just for fun and she told me that I will be getting super rich because of I don’t really remember now.

Well, I was excited, I will tell you that but not after I lost my Job the very next week and I just wished that I could meet that palmist somehow.

Both of these events happened a long time ago but you see my point here that both of them had different views on how I will be getting rich which I didn’t by the way!

They are only for making money:

It’s all about *BLING BLING* so please stop believing in horoscope so much.

Be more practical.

If your horoscope says that buying an expensive thing will bring happiness to your life. And you don’t have an extra single penny. What are you going to do? Become a thief to bring that happiness or become a beggar or something?

Use your own thoughts and apply a practical approach.

Horoscope is just sort of like a scam. Look guys working hard is everything. If you work hard to achieve something then chances are you will achieve that thing even though your horoscopes say against it.

These horoscopes are only here to make money. They make money off you when you buy the newspapers to read them. Astrologers and Palmists make money by telling you all the baby-BS. The people who blog about it or are “so-called horoscope/astrology specialists” make money by making you buy their products. It is just a Scam business and nothing else.


As Theodore Roosevelt said:

Believe you can and you’re halfway there.

Same pretty much applies here too but in a bad way.

No one in this world can tell you about your fate.

Horoscopes can be taken as fun but strongly believing in them is like playing with your own psychology of mind.

The magic lies in your mind and not in the horoscopes.

We believe what we want to believe.
