WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT ASTROLOGY AND HOROSCOPES?


Lately, I've noticed people posting "Read Today's Horoscope", on Face Book. As a Christian, I would like to address this subject.The Bible puts astrologers (those who practice astrology) into the same category as those who practice divination, sorcery, witchcraft, the casting of spells, speaking to the dead, and interpreting omens. (See Deuteronomy 18:10, and Daniel 2:27)


The definition of astrology is; the supposed foreseeing of events by the influences of the stars according to their positions.

The definition of divination is;  attempting to foresee or foretell the future or gain hidden knowledge through supernatural powers or interpreting omens.

The definition of horoscope is; the supposed foretelling of  a future event or knowledge of a person's life through astrologers by the positions of the planets at a specific time. 


This is what GOD says about it:  "There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: . . ." Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV


"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."  2 Corinthians 6:17 KJV


If you have been "dabbling" in this area, reading your horoscope and giving attention to this, God will forgive you.  Just ask him to and it's done.  Then refuse to give any of your attention to this area.  If you want answers, ask God! He will show you.  As in the time of Daniel when the astrologers, diviners and ungodly advisers could not tell the King his dream, Daniel said, "But there is a God in heaven that revealeth  secrets. . ."

Daniel 2:28 KJV
