The same place where it talks about those pagan scum. *sarcasm*

I do not believe it is singled out and mentioned as a sin. The sin is that it is putting your faith and trust in something other than God, like worship to a false god.

No

Rev-'em-up Wright

Well, it ain’t a sin unless you use it to plot someones death or something. Or if ya worship it as a god.

The first commandment “Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me”

God’s Word and the principles found therein condemn astrology. Did God allow his people to consult professional foretellers of events? We read: “There should not be found in you anyone . . . who employs divination, a practicer of magic or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer, or one who binds others with a spell or anyone who consults a spirit medium or a professional foreteller of events or anyone who inquires of the dead. For everybody doing these things is something detestable to Jehovah.”–Deut. 18:10-12.
Why is God opposed to the foretelling of events by methods such as astrology? Because the one relying on it is not trusting in God or being guided by his inspired Word, of which the psalmist said: “Your word is a lamp to my foot, and a light to my roadway.” (Ps. 119:105) Hence the astrology-guided person walks in darkness and plays into the hands of the Devil and his demons, who are responsible for “lying divination” and “lying signs and wonders.” (Ezek. 13:6, AS; 2Â Thess. 2:9) God’s Word foretold that in these “last days” men would turn to demonic teachings for guidance rather than the Bible: “The inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons.”–1Â Tim. 4:1.

What purpose did astrology serve at its beginning? Professor Jastrow continues: “In Babylonia as well as in Assyria . . . astrology takes its place in the official cult as one of the two chief means at the disposal of the priests . . . for ascertaining the will and intention of the gods.” The sun, moon and planets were considered the homes of the Babylonian gods and were named after them. The priests believed that a correct interpretation of the movements of these bodies would reveal what the gods were about to do. Thus, astrology was religious from its beginning. It was a form of divination by means of omens.
This is a form of spiritism which is a danager.

It comes under magic and divination.

Nope. God created the stars, planets, and constillations. The wise men were lead by a star. Studying stars is not sinful. Astrology can be taken to a level of religious belief where people worship the stars and gods of space and stuff. That could be sinful.

Deuteronomy 4:19
And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the STARS–all the heavenly array–do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.
Deuteronomy 17:3
and contrary to my command has worshiped other gods, bowing down to them or to the sun or the moon or the STARS of the sky,
Basically your gettign yoru instruction from life from an ungldly source and it could lead you where God did not want you to go.

Deuteronomy 18:9-12; Isaiah 47:12-14; Acts 16:16-18 .Deuteronomy 17:2-5. These scriptures are very obvious Please consider them.
I am glad you ask this question. All of astrology is a thing satan uses to get us away from God.
By the way the so called wise men that visited Jesus when he was a child were Astrologers and Herod used them to find Jesus so he could kill him since he thought he was a thread to his kingship. Please read Matthew the second chapter. That puts a whole new light on the nativity scene. God hates astrology and if we study the bible we gain all the information we need to know our future.

Isaiah 47:13,14; ‘ …you are wearied with your many counsels; let now the astrologers, those who prophesy by the stars, those who predict by the new moons, stand up and save you from what will come upon you. Behold, they have become like stubble, fire burns them; they cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame; there will be no coal to warm by…’

jesus hu hamamzer

no it is not wrong its just the fact since G-d took the jews out of the stars so whatever the stars foretell about a jew can be changed as we say einn mazel leyisroel there is stars or constellations for the jews like there is for the rest of the world

The Hebrew prophets, however, did not reject astrology merely because of its manifest failure to predict the future accurately. The Law that God gave to Moses specifically warned the Israelites against looking for omens. “There should not be found in you . . . anyone who employs divination . . . or anyone who looks for omens,” the Law stated. “Everybody doing these things is something detestable to Jehovah.”–Deuteronomy 18:10, 12.
Although astrology is not mentioned by name in that scripture, the prohibition evidently included the practice. The Encyclopædia Britannica notes that astrology is a “type of divination that consists in forecasting earthly and human events by means of observing and interpreting the fixed stars, the Sun, the Moon, and the planets.” All forms of divination–whether based on the stars or other objects–violate God’s guidelines. Why? There is good reason.
Rather than attribute our successes or failures to the stars, the Bible clearly states that “whatever a man is sowing, this he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7) God holds each of us responsible for our actions, since we are free moral agents. (Deuteronomy 30:19, 20; Romans 14:12) True, we may suffer an accident or an illness because of events beyond our control. But such calamities, the Scriptures explain, are due to “time and unforeseen occurrence,” not our horoscope.–Ecclesiastes 9:11.

To mislead people, the demons use spiritism.The practice of spiritism is involvement with the demons, both in a direct way and through a human medium. TheBible condemns spiritism and warns us to keep free from everything connected with it. (Galatians 5:19-21) Spiritism does for the demons what bait does for fishermen. Afisherman uses a variety of baits to catch various kinds of fish. Similarly, wicked spirits use different forms of spiritism to bring all sorts of people under their influence. One, bait used by demons is divination, which is an attempt to find out about the future or about something unknown.Some forms of divination are astrology, the use of tarot cards, crystal gazing, palmistry, and the search for mysterious omens, or signs, in dreams.
Acts 16:16-18 mentions”a demon of divination” that enabled a girl to practice”the art of prediction”. But the girl lost this ability when the demon was cast out of her.
