Friday Five  
1. Are you superstitious?
I'm socially superstitious. For example, I'll knock on wood but only in the presence of others. I don't actually think it does anything, it's just a social convention.
2. What extremes have you heard of someone going to in the name of superstition?
Killing someone, like during an exorcism or as punishment for witchcraft.
3. Believer or not, what's your favorite superstition?
Don't walk under ladders. Practical sense disguised as superstition.
4. Do you believe in luck? If yes, do you have a lucky number/article of clothing/ritual?
My lucky number is 4. No lucky clothes or rituals yet.
5. Do you believe in astrology? Why or why not?
Yes. When someone is infected with a cold virus, they experience certain symptoms. The symptoms aren't the virus, their appearance coincides with the infection. I believe that applies to the universe as well. Either something happens in the universe which we can decipher in the stars and the effects on our lives are the symptoms, or vice versa. The stars don't make the events happen, they coincide with them.
