Does studying astrology interfere with the Roman Catholic faith?

Is there anything demonic about following the zodiac? I need proof.

  1. No nothing demonic. I don’t have physical proof, nor can anyone really give you proof that you will accept as real proof. If you beleive it to be demonic then don’t mess with it. If you don’t beleive it to be demonic then your fine. See how easy that was?

  2. Forget “demonic”, is there anything about “balls of plasma light-years away influencing human character and destiny” which strikes you as sane?
    Don’t get me started on unexplained magic man living in the sky.

  3. The Roman Catholic faith has so many made up rules, and regulations, many of which get changed every few years, almost all aren’t even in the Bible. It’s a nice way to keep the followers in check.

  4. Jeez, come on! I read my horoscope daily for probably 40 years, and have even made charts. No demons have bothered me yet!
    I am pretty sure that they won’t! If they do, I will spit in their eyes!

  5. Are you organizing your life or, putting your faith, in star alignment or God? How much do you study God’s word relative to your time in the astrology? The proof is in what you love. Try astronomy instead.

  6. Of course not. Stars behavior are related to all religions, including Catholic. If you look carefully, you´ll find a lot of moments when astrologycal matters interfer in the history and in several important characters of religions. It´s because everything that surround us out there, I mean planets, stars, suns, etc, really have deep influence in our lifes, and this is something that has ever been this way since the beginnings of times and there´s no change about it if people believes it or not, because it´s something that is part of life, just the way GOD is.

  7. Yes, the Catholics are forbidden to take Astrology seriously. You can’t look up into the night sky and study it. You might actually learn something.(they wouldn’t want that) Anything other than saying, “Ooh, pretty stars,” is a no no. As for being demonic, who knows? The Satanists will tell you it is. I guess you’d probably be considered a bad Catholic if you study Astrology, but you have to ask the Pope, to be sure.

  8. In scripture, I know Peter rejected Simon Magnus, and he was into magic.
    I did find a good quote from the cathicism of the catholic church
    http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/para/2116.htm
    The reason it interferes wit the faith is because Jesus is the source of light, and it would definitly be at odds.
    The online movies that claim Jesus is an astrological figure make me laugh because in any thing that is true, you have copy-cats.
    Jesus is not a copycat, he’s the real deal and fulfilled over 300 prophecies of the Old testament. Zeus or Jupiter never did that! Thats what these websites are saying, wrongly!
    Basicly, understand the evil spirit knew the Old Testament predictions, so tried to “Manufacture” (in people’s minds) many different Jesus’s.
    So in 2008, people could say “Hey, Jesus is an astrology figure, like the others- born dec 25,etc…”
    But not one of these astrology gods (Way different teachings from christianity) ever fulfilled prophecies like Jesus did.
    The chance of any one man being able to fulfill all the Old Testament predictions were like 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
    Its inpossible, There was some research donr on it in the 1960’s, so Jesus didnt “just get lucky”.
    As for the astrological gods, they didnt even exist.

    a little star gazing for Catholics!!!

  9. Yes.
    Catholic Church teaches:
    All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future.
    Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers.
    They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.
    For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 2116: http://www.nccbuscc.org/catechism/text/pt3sect2chpt1.shtml#2116
    With love in Christ.

  10. I cannot provide any proof, but i am a Catholic and i still read and learn about Astrology and horoscopes. I do not use it to read my future, just to learn more about personalities cause i find it to be quite accurate. I don’t think it’s demonic, but God did make each and every one of us different. But he loves everyone. I believe it is only a sin if you push God aside and believe in the Zodiac like a religion. Otherwise, reading the Zodiac to pass time or to widen your knowledge cause you find it interesting is fine.

  11. <>
    Merely studying astrology doesn’t constitute sin, but if you’re studying it because you (want to) believe in and practice it. That’s a different story.
    <>
    There isn’t necessarily any “demonic” forces behind astrology, but that’s not the point.
    By putting stock in astrology, you run the risk of Divination, which is a serious sin as it is a violation of the First Commandment.
    The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches:
    2116 All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.
    2138 Superstition is a departure from the worship that we give to the true God. It is manifested in idolatry, as well as in various forms of divination and magic.
    2117 All practices of magic or sorcery, by which one attempts to tame occult powers, so as to place them at one’s service and have a supernatural power over others – even if this were for the sake of restoring their health – are gravely contrary to the virtue of religion. These practices are even more to be condemned when accompanied by the intention of harming someone, or when they have recourse to the intervention of demons. Wearing charms is also reprehensible. Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices; the Church for her part warns the faithful against it. Recourse to so-called traditional cures does not justify either the invocation of evil powers or the exploitation of another’s credulity.
