Why do people let horoscopes run their life?

I don’t understand how people think that horoscopes are actually truly right all the time, or at least that hell bent on them because someone somewhere writes it in a book and it gets published once a year and then people start distributing via web, newspaper, etc. Can I have some opinions on why people really follow them cause in my opinion its all just a coincidence or you’re making yourself think you act that way cause you read it.

Answer by Chris Q.T.
i have a longg story to tell you if you’d want my answer,,

to put it short kay

i loved the love of my life (COMplicated & long story)
i was heart broken for 3 or so years (so complicated)
i felt like i was living a lie during those 3 years
i had to find out the truth during those 3 years while living… living was just so difficult if you can relate to anyones heartbreak i just had mine for 3 years and i had to experience the heartbreak without the truth (it’s more complicated too)

then while finding out the truth, astrology kinda helped me about the love of my life, it was only one thing that helped, but i really don’t care what others say, it helped change my broken heart, maybe not all the way but it helped, a girl i love right now, a bright girl changed my heart it’s complicated

but yah all that helped my heart i learned to trust, get “back on track”- the love of my life (i still love her after she broke me lol, i found out the truth & will see her in the future)

i even asked a psychic reader whom i really TRUST when i was heartbroken, paid nothing if u want to know that little detail but it’s <3 that's the reason i trust my psychic reader, theres tons more to this story but i hope you understand ...good luck with this edit: if you'd understand astrology more better, you'd understand horoscopes more, horoscopes is just a little part of astrology, & it's world-wide, it was created by passion by astrologists and they try to help with their passion with astrology,, only if your into astrology....if you just go straight into horoscopes, you'll be confused and led into wrong horoscopes & etc if their are fake horoscope sites etc, it's just horoscopes are generalized to put it in generalized terms.. i won't say nothing more xD ahh edit again: i also don't even know if my hearts not broken, it always will but it was just a metaphor used to say that i'm more grown and happy and more of a man and better as a lover & can be the greatest lover a live for one girl again,, my color of confidence has changed by not my broken heart maybe i guess?


How do you feel about horoscopes?

Are horoscopes accurate for you? Do you trust them?
How about Chinese astrology?

Answer by Phoenix
no form of astrology has any scientific backup whatsoever

Answer by An Epic Day
i feel like if such a thing is possible to predict, there is no way we have the technology to make use of that yet.

chinese astrology is even less believable for me. they group an entire year of people in one category. can you say everyone in your high school class was of the same character? no…

Answer by thisistheusernicknameIchoose!!!!
I can’t say they are 100% accurate but I like to read them for some reason.As for trusting them I’m not sure about that either. Chinese astrology I don’t know much about it. :/


Why are my horoscopes always right?

I came across this horoscope site a few months ago and almost everyday it has been somewhat accurate. I have also watched my horoscopes from other sites but they were all incorrect. Does this prove astrology may also be true.

Answer by ChainLightninGâ…ś
It is called conformation bias.

Confirmation bias refers to a type of selective thinking whereby one tends to notice and to look for what confirms one’s beliefs, and to ignore, not look for, or undervalue the relevance of what contradicts one’s beliefs. For example, if you believe that during a full moon there is an increase in admissions to the emergency room where you work, you will take notice of admissions during a full moon, but be inattentive to the moon when admissions occur during other nights of the month. A tendency to do this over time unjustifiably strengthens your belief in the relationship between the full moon and accidents and other lunar effects. The same goes for the unproven relationship between naturally blonde women and breast reconstruction surgery.

This tendency to give more attention and weight to data that support our beliefs than we do to contrary data is especially pernicious when our beliefs are little more than prejudices. If our beliefs are firmly established on solid evidence and valid confirmatory experiments, the tendency to give more attention and weight to data that fit with our beliefs should not lead us astray as a rule. Of course, if we become blinded to evidence truly refuting a favored hypothesis, we have crossed the line from reasonableness to closed-mindedness.
