Is astrology bad? Like does God disdain it? why or why not?

Many things have been accurately predicted through the use of stars, so if these things are coming true then why is God against it (if he even is) when he made the earth and stars in the sky that show these signs. And yes the people like for instance the Mayans have accurately predicted many things using astrology.

  • astrology is nothing but a pseudo science which attempts to interpret various natural phenomena and attempts to explains it.

    it helps in the long run, but it should not be relied on making day to day decisions of life.

  • I’m not one to speak for God but he loves truth. I don’t think the ramblings of a pseudoscientist that have not a shred of evidence supporting it’s ability to predict anything, is in line for one of His favorite topics.
    The ability of planets and stars to influence a person’s life is beyond ridiculous to me. Sorry.
    I think God would disdain it because it’s a diversion from the truth. You should be seeking Him not some quirky alignments of planets.Redirect the energy you put into astrology to the search for what God loves. That will tell you more about the real world and will lead to a jaw dropping, eyes wide open experience, when you finally see Him in His works. Look for the natural order of things. How everything has a place, especially you.Don’t for one second think that God can’t love you and everyone else at the same time.But He does have a special interest in the ones who seek Him. Reach out and touch the hand of God.
    Astrology was devised in ancient times. No one on earth knew of the existence of saturn, uranus, neptune. It was devised with the idea that the sun revolved around the earth as did everything. I think astrologers have got some ‘splaining to do.Why people still hang on to this thoroughly debunked pseudoscience I don’t know.

  • God Almighty has infinite wisdom. If He has forbidden something, there must be a reason for it!.

    Holy prophet of Islam says that if someone goes to a astrologer to ask about his fate, his prayers are not accepted for 40 days.

    In fact God wants us to work hard and rely upon only His help and not on superistition. Most astrologers give good news to their clients depending upon which many people stop struggling and wait for good luck to strike, in vain.

  • he made the heavens for us,yes many vision,my lord has shown me thew the stars ,yet i do ask him what the particular shape mean,or why the sun positions itself differently,or why the moon,at night reveals something quite odd,among the stars,whats the message,unlike some can actually read them,,,yet still they have those that rely on the heavenly bodies for all events,,this my friend is not good!you know,i always seen billions of stars in the sky,but when katrina hit,not one star was seen in the sky,for it was so black the sky,never seen any thing like it! you ever felt darkness? no astrologer saw this.

  • True that God created the stars, but people go further than that. They resort to divination and all forms of dangerous spiritual practices in an attempt to foretell the future. The wise men from the east looked up at the star in heaven and predicted the birth of a great KING to whom they worshipped. God also in the book of Revelation uses the phenomena in the heavens to be a visible sign unto us that the end was near, but to us Christians, we should not be dismayed by them. In vain they will search for what it means, but will find none because their understanding is still too shallow…..

  • Do you speak & read the Heavenly Toungue?

    Psalms 19:1-3, “The heavens declare the glory of God. The skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech. Night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.”
    Genesis 1:14-18. “And God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.”
    In Job, God asked his humble servant a series of questions involving the wondrous miracles performed. In Job 38:31-33, God asks, “Can you bind the sweet influences of the Pleiades or loose the bonds of Orion? Can you bring forth the Mazzaroth in their seasons? Or can you guide Arcturus with his sons? Do you know the principles of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?”

    Thus, God is proclaiming that there are principles in the heavens and that they govern life on earth. Furthermore, God is responsible for bringing forth the Mazzaroth in their seasons. Most Bibles avoid translating this sacred word, ‘Mazzaroth’, because it literally means, ‘the twelve signs of the zodiac’, in Hebrew. So, God created the zodiac and brings them forth in their seasons. He explains that heavenly constellations like the Pleiades and Orion have ‘influences’ that can be unleashed.
    The Old Testament, from which I’ve been quoting, describes the Age of Aries from the perspective of the Hebrews. Terah, who was the father of Abraham, left Ur at that time. Ur was a flourishing port city, a center for trade between India and Egypt. To symbolize the Age, Abraham sacrificed God’s provision, the ram. Across the world, bull sacrifices from the Age of Taurus were giving way to ram sacrifices as the equinoxes processed and the quality of times changed. God became known as Jehovah, the warrior God, as Aries exemplifies the archetype of the warrior, pioneer, and leader. It was a militant age of sacred ram veneration.
    The characteristics of the twelve tribes were given both by Jacob in Genesis 49 when he blesses his sons and again in Deuteronomy 33 when Moses blesses the tribes. They correspond to the basic meanings of the twelve signs used today. God ordered Moses to have the twelve tribes camp around the holy tabernacle in the exact order of the zodiac with the entrance to the temple facing east. The four gateways to the camp were Judea, Rueben, Ephraim, and Dan. These four tribes correspond to the exact description in Ezekiel and Revelations of the four living creatures before the throne of God, which were the lion, the bull, the man, and the eagle. These four ancient symbols correspond to our own astrological signs of Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, and Scorpio which contain the four royal stars of Persia, Regulus in Leo, Aldebaran in Taurus, Formalhaut in Aquarius, Antares in Scorpio.[2] God even directs Moses to have the tribes march through the desert starting with Judea (Leo) and going backwards towards the camps of Rueben (Taurus), Ephraim (Aquarius) and Dan (Scorpio). This is the exact motion of the equinoctial precession that gives rise to the flow of the astrological ages, a 26,000-year cycle.
    The Age of Aries gradually gave way to the next sign of the zodiac, Pisces, the archetype of universal love and compassion through selfless service. The three Chaldean Magi followed the star across the Arabian Desert in search of the incoming spiritual master of love. Three astrologers utilized the language of the heavens to discover the long-prophesized Hebrew Messiah. Modern research has revealed that Jesus may have been born closer to 7 BCE around the time of the Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus triple-conjunction in Pisces. Every astrologer inspired to research the illusive chart of Christ has a pet theory as to the exact birth date. My own research lead me to conclude that he was born on September 16, 7 BCE around midnight in Bethlehem. In any case, the ultimate spiritual mystic arrived to teach the Way as High Priest of the Order of the Melchizedek (as the Bible refers to him in Hebrews 6:20).
    Jesus embodied the Piscean archetype, linking the first sign Aries with the last sign Pisces, the alpha with the omega, starting not just one new age, but a whole cycle of twelve ages. People began spiritually cleansing themselves through the baptismal rites, as Pisces is a water element sign. Suddenly, water was sacred (as opposed to fire) and the fish became holy. Early Christians would identify themselves by drawing the sign of Pisces in the sand. Jesus spoke often of the age of his birth as a preparation age for the Age of Enlightenment to follow. He was referring to the Age of Aquarius that is symbolized by the cosmic man bearing the pitcher of the living waters of life, pouring it throughout the universe. At Jesus’ first Jupiter return (age 12) he began instructing the Priests at the temple, saying to his parents, “Let me be about my work.” After his first Saturn return (age 30) he became intensely devoted to teaching and demonstrating the way of unconditional love. He selected twelve disciples each with a character similar to one of the twelve signs. At the Last Supper Jesus washed the feet of the disciples. In astrology each sign governs a part of the body. Pisces symbolizes the feet.
    The Bible is strangely silent on the so-called ‘lost years of Jesus’ between ages 12 and 30. Some sources like The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus[3], channeled by a Christian minister at the dawn of the 20th century, tells a marvelous story about how Jesus journeyed throughout Persia, India, Greece and Egypt walking all paths of life. The Christian’s maintain that he stayed home and humbly served as a carpenter all his life until he got the call to begin his ministry.

    The New Testament is full of clues and insights that point to Jesus’ respect and reverence for astrology. The most obvious quote is Luke 21:25 when he says, “At the end of this Age there will be signs in the sun, moon and stars…the heavenly bodies will be shaken (lit. the heavenly forces will be agitated).” It’s in the red print. Jesus said it. He tells his twelve disciples that the age to come will be foreshadowed by signs in the heavens. That is what God said they were supposed to be used for. Signs give directions and guidance to help us navigate life.

    The Age of Aquarius is surely on the rise! Astronomically, the Aries Ingress won’t reach the first stars of Aquarius until around 2376 CE, but the symbols of Aquarius are actually alive in the imaginations of the people. Ever since the discovery of Uranus in 1781 the world has been struggling for freedom, independence and human rights in addition to great inventions and advances in science. In the year 2080 Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus will align in the sign of Aquarius similarly to the Piscean configuration of 7 BCE. On the solstice of 2020 Jupiter and Saturn will conjunct in Aquarius. The times are ripe for a new dispensation focused on creative originality, cosmic vision and universal awareness.

    The next time your religious friends start bad-mouthing the celestial language of astrology you’ll be armed with Biblical insight.

  • Nothing to do with religion, but Astrology is considered a pseudoscience. It has not value at all. It is all superstition. Astronomy is a science. If you are religious, why are you concerned with predictions? I’m sure that goes against the Bible.

  • God condemns astrology in the bible. We should not be putting our faith in anything other than His word. Satan is given a certain amount of power in this world as well. For instance–Nostradamus was a Satanist, and a lot of his prophecies have come true as well. We don’t need astrology. It’s just another tool of Satan to take our faith away from God only.

    People: She’s asking about ASTROLOGY, not ASTRONOMY. There’s a distinct difference.

  • Yeah, like navigation using the stars. The alignment of stars has nothing to with anything except the alignment itself and how much heat is dissipated and where. It is not a portent of things to be.

  • Without Astrology, Jesus wouldn’t have gotten any birthday prezzies! The best astrologers in Christan history have worked for the Vatican. (Of course, there was no such thing as “astronomy” as a separate, scientific pursuit until the 20th century.)
