Checking zodiac signs

Q: My question is related to astrology. I wanted to know if being aware or checking the compatiblilty of me and my partner is haraam or not? I know that believing in palmistry and fortune telling is a sin but my question is just that. Checking the traits of a certain zodiac man or checking someone's compatibility with you is haram or not? Is it kufr? 

A: This has no basis in islaam. Believing in this is Haraam.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
