The Un-Zodiac

starsThe stars are shifting.  Ok, well really the information is that the earth is in a different place in it’s alignment with the sun than it was thousands of years ago when the Zodiac was created by ancient Babylonians.  So, from the human viewpoint, the stars have moved.  A shift in stars means a shift in the dates of astrological signs, which means a shift in the daily guidance and life definitions for many horoscope followers.

I love that I stumbled on this verse in The Message this week.  It’s a great reminder that too often, we trust in and give too  much attention to man-made tools for understanding our existence.  Eugene Peterson, you sure have a way with words.

Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything.   Colossians 2:9
