In the Saudian newspaper al-Madina a member of the supreme board of clerics demands death by the sword for the TV-astrologers, say a few western papers. It seems to be a fatwa against 'sorcerers', black magic and predictions. The demand includes the program makers.

Since all over the world programs with paranormal advisors are called 'ASTRO TV' astrologers are associated with magic and glass bowls. I don't know if it helps to explain the differences. In most religions astrology in general is forbidden, too, according to interpretations of the books. Scientists also disapprove of astrology. Nevertheless I know of priests and vicars and of scientists who study astrology.
