Zodiac Change and the Unchanging God

The next time he opens the newspaper to the horoscope column, what Zodiac sign applies to him? Will he read the Aries forecast or should he shift to Pieces?

You see people are somewhat confused about this news on shifting zodiac signs.

I don't understand the various astrological systems. I don't understand the difference between the Western system vs. Vedic System vs. Chinese system. But why should I entrust my life to the positions of the sun, moon, stars and planets? I would rather put my trust in the Creator rather than on created things.

Moreover, the biblical data shows that God hates astrology.
When Israel was about to enter the Promised Land, God warned them against the pagan practices of their neighbors. One of these abominable practices in the sight of God is divintion-- and Astrology is a form of divination.

Jer.8:1-2, 10:2
Those who inquired of the the sun, moon and stars were condemned.

Isaiah 47:13-15
I shall just copy from my bible software and paste it here without commentary:

    Let your astrologers come forward,
  those stargazers who make predictions month by month,
    let them save you from what is coming upon you.

  Surely they are like stubble;
    the fire will burn them up.
  They cannot even save themselves
    from the power of the flame.
  Here are no coals to warm anyone;
    here is no fire to sit by.

  That is all they can do for you--
    these you have labored with
    and trafficked with since childhood.
  Each of them goes on in his error;
    there is not one that can save you.
