You consider astrology to be ridiculous, yet it is an ancient scientific practice. perhaps you should be a little more open minded and do some research before making blanket statements.
I do read Tarot cards, I do consult with psychics, I do read my horoscope and have had my natal chart completed. Am I crazy? No, I'm an open minded , intelligent woman who knows there is more in this world than can be explained.
1 You believe in accordance with your upbringing as a Southern Baptist.
2 You also believe in Horoscopes, Tarot, Astrology and similar superstitions.
Your church condemns belief in 2 above as evil and consorting with the devil and his agents. Ask your priest, vicar, pastor, witch doctor or whatever he/she calls her/himself and they will tell you that you are wicked, evil, possessed and need a thorough exorsizing. A bit of scourging wouldn't hurt either.
In view of your contradictory beliefs in 1 and 2 above you are self evidently neither intelligent nor open minded. Crazy is your best option.
