People are always coming up to us and saying things like, “I’m a Leo. What does the
Star Bible say about that?”
To which we reply, “Not so fast. When were you born?”
It turns out that the astrological dates you see in the papers for Leo, July 23rd to August 22nd are a little behind the times. About 2,000 years behind.
You see, the dates are supposed to represent the dates when the sun is moving through the constellation Leo. Astrology fans believe that somehow the constellation Leo exerts some magical power on humans born during this time, so that a “Leo” has some special characteristics. These characteristics then form the basis for daily guidance from astrologers.
So the first problem is that the actual dates when the sun is moving through Leo have changed. The dates you see in the newspaper were determined when Julius Caesar was alive, over 2,000 years ago. A process called The Precession of the Equinoxes has moved the Leo dates back so that Leo now begins on August 11th, not July 23rd. Also, the sun takes 42 days to travel through the constellation Leo, so the Leo dates actually and August 11th to September 21st. Thus, most people who think they are Leos are really Cancers (real dates July 21st through August 10th). But for all this time the astrologers have been telling them that they are subject to the magical effects of Leo anyway.
The second problem follows from the first, whether you are one of those still in Leo (born August 11th to August 22nd) or a Leo the Crab moved back to Cancer (born July 23rd to August 10th) For if astrologers can’t tell the difference between a Cancer and a Leo for 2,000 years, how can they know anything else? In fact, while astrology has been used to control people for over 3,000 years it has no real predictive power and is a practice condemned by God in the Bible. Stay away from it!
The good news is that you can become a child of God no matter which page of the Star Bible you were born under. What really matters is being born again of the Spirit. You are not a Leo or a Leo the Crab. You are a Christian.
Your future is full of good things and eternal life promised by God.
There is nothing better.
