Astrology From the Devil?
Astrology is an ancient system of divination. But is it really from the devil? Certainly not! Astrology is the lost key to humanity. It is through this natural science that we know about thyself, the creator, and nature around us.
“Astrology is the mother of all sciences. It is the deepest, the most profound, and the most beneficial of all sciences.” – Lyman E. Stowe
Astrology is quoted in the Bible a thousand times and has been around for over millions of years. Astrology is practically dating from the 3rd millennium BC. Many scholars believe that it has a lot of strong roots in calendars and seasons. Equally, some societies have accepted astrology both culturally and politically.
Even Jesus Christ said that signs are in the sky where there are a lot of stars, the moon, and the sun. While a few verses in the Bible perceptively speak negatively and disapprovingly about Astrology, this science is the language of God and the science of light.
Notably, the Old Testament is EGYPTIAN that deals with the creation of mankind whilst the New Testament is GREEK that deals with how man will ascend into heaven in the end times.
Christians term Astrology as the Dark Side of Life
Some Christians in the Church believe that anyone studying Astrology or believing in the stars and the celestial world is moving over to the dark side. But this is not true. Some even go to the extent of saying that Astrology is the science of the devil. This brings in the question of whether astrology has any connection with the Bible. And does astrology have any compatibility with Christianity? Does the bible condemn astrology? What do you think?
Besides, it is crucial to note that the Bible doesn’t condemn astrology, but only condemns astrologers. The Bible criticizes astrologers who blasphemize against the word of God. This is especially, people who use information available to them to deceive people into believing falsities and fortune-telling for profit.
“Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God?” – 1 Corinthians 6: 9
Moreover, the Bible goes against LAWYERS, who use the law for ill gains and selfish interests, but not the law as the Bible presents, particularly the Bible is THE LAW.
“And he said, “Woe to you lawyers also! For you load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.” Luke 11:46
“No one enters suit justly; no one goes to law honestly; they rely on empty pleas, they speak lies, they conceive mischief and give birth to iniquity.” Isaiah 59:4
Moreover, the Bible ATTACKS PRIESTS for practically the same reason – those who deceive the people in the name of God.
“I will stretch out my hand against Judah and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off from this place the remnant of Baal and the name of the idolatrous priests along with the priests, those who bow down on the roofs to the host of the heavens, those who bow down and swear to the Lord and yet swear by Milcom. Zephaniah 1:4-5
“Nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” – 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10
On the other hand, the Bible says in the book of Psalm 1:1–3 that the heavens declared the glory of the Almighty God and the sky as well proclaimed His handiwork. Moreover, God states that days pour speeches while the night unravels knowledge to the people.
This is a classic example of Astrology that proves a hidden power of the elements and objects in the sky and how they are connected to God and knowledge. This is the right way of understanding how God speaks, particularly his words. But only someone who is deliberately shying away from reading between the lines that will declare Astrology (the study of celestial bodies in view of the existence of humankind and nature) the dark side of life. True to it, astrology is the light.
Astrology the Devil’s Science
From left, right, and center, we have been made to think and believe that Astrology is what witches practice, especially in the wee hours of the night. Some even go to the extent of saying that devil worshipers and occult members are followers of Astrology, who perform bizarre rituals and diabolical sacrifices at the stroke of midnight.
Many are the times when people, with little information, characterize astrology as a science of magic and wizardry—indicating that the people behind this science often wear pointed hats and creepy cloaks. It’s utterly hilarious, to say the least.
However, all these are not true. The holy book categorically states that the stars, the moon, and the sun were all set in the heavens as symbols that help determine seasons.
“Mastery of Astrology is a divine privilege.” – John H. Annis
“And the Lord God said, Let there be light.”(Genesis 1:1-14). And this is how night and day were separated. That is why we can see clearly during the day, and surprisingly, not many can see during the night, if at all these evil-bent assertions are there to be believed. God Himself said that day and night would forever be used as the symbols of life and seasons. Just like that, God put it clearly for everyone to read in the first book of the Bible. Some will say that He put all the cards out on the table without throwing in any veil of sorts. But still not many will see this, because it is like mystery.
“As the mystic key, Astrology is the primary tool of insight into the mysteries of the Bible and is a beacon of light on the shore of eternity for the soul of man.” – John H. Annis
“The golden key of all Bible symbolism sparkles above us in the starry configurations of the sky. The mystic key to the inner secrets of Nature and Man is found in Astrology. Astrology is the true mystic key that unlocks the allegories of all the religions of the world.” – John H. Annis
Until you can see this light, you won’t understand how Astrology works and its relations with the Bible, the earth and the universe.

The Sign of Flaming Balls of Fire in the Sky
It’s time to take everything slow now and refuse to be deceived by the evil ones when boning-up astrology.
You will have to agree that God speaks to us through fireballs in the sky. God created these fire symbols to give us clear signs of His message whenever He is speaking to us.
Amazingly, God still warns of being baffled by the symbols of heaven. He advises his faithful followers, those that many would like to believe are Christians, that they should not be dismayed by the signs of the heavens that he created for us (Jeremiah 10: 2).
In the first place, God indicates clearly that he has christened all the stars that keep floating in the deepest abyss of the sky. There is no way that God will spend time to name stars if they lacked meaning. Anything with a name, for sure, has value.
Furthermore, God knows the number of all the stars in the sky and assigns each of them names, of course, with meanings (Psalm 147:4). He expects us to understand what he is doing by this and to see value in the objects of the sky, including the dazzling stars that light up the cosmos.
Of course, science doesn’t have any record of the total number of stars hanging up in the universe, but God is conscious enough to, not only count them but also name them. This is amazing and cannot be overlooked or tagged as ordinary objects in the sky – because they boil down to Astrology.
God continues to tell the people of the earth to look up in the sky and see what’s there and acknowledge who created them. This means that the objects in the sky are of immense value. They are communicating a lot than we hardly know. God is saying that man should make an effort to identify the symbols in the sky that are forever meaningful. God continues to state in Isaiah 40: 26 that by the "greatness of his might," he knows that no star is missing in the universe.
God doesn’t emphasize a lot on the moon when citing seasons or time intervals. However, it is known that the 28-days cycle of the moon also controls the tides of the oceans, women’s menstrual cycle, and a plethora of other natural occurrences that we encounter on earth. This is surely enough to prove that God uses the striking luminaries in the sky to speak to his creation, but unfortunately, we still cannot see.
Now, if astrology is not the science of the devil, then what is it?
Astrology is a primeval yet fused science of understanding the divine world through the lens of epitomes, cycles as well as symbols. Astrology links the outer space perfectly with the earth. It can unveil our deep-seated strengths as well as weaknesses, and pin down seasons of trials and gains, particularly in our careers and daily lives. We can easily understand the scope of Covid-19 if we integrate astrology into our health care research and studies surrounding this virus and its effects on human beings.
“Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need an astrologer.” —J. P. Morgan and “A physician without a knowledge of Astrology has no right to call himself a physician.” — Hippocrates
Whether we agree or not, it is clear that the Bible is not mute when it comes to astrology. It is ‘silver-tongued.’ It’s upon us to figure out everything for ourselves, for God says in Luke 21:25 that “there will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars.”
