Astrology for Christians

In case you didn't know, Ukraine is predominately a "Christian" nation with 96.2% of her citizens claiming to be Christians (according to CIA factbook).  But this article from the Kyiv Post shows how confused Ukrainians are when it comes to understanding their religion.  Here are a few quotes from the article, Ukrainian Love for Astrology.

With a horoscope in the morning and a prayer in the evening, Ukrainians are an odd mix when it comes to believing in things supernatural.

Many Christian Orthodox believers partake in the custom, hardly questioning the clash.

This article gives evidence to the state of the Church in Ukraine.  If so many Ukrainians put their faith in a horoscope, then their faith in God is very low indeed.
