Astrology In The Bible
Astrology in the Bible Many Christians do not believe in astrology, but it is mentioned in a general way quite frequently in the Bible. One of the most famous quotes that astrologers use as to explain that astrology is not evil is:

"There shall be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars." – (Jesus Christ, Luke 21:25)

Then, of course, there is one of the most famous astrological omens in history – The Star of Bethlehem. The star was supposed to be a sign from God that the Messiah was about to be brought into the world. In 1600, the astronomer Johannes Kepler brought forth the theory that the star was actually a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, which looked like one big glowing star.

The conjunction also brought he prediction that a Messiah will be born. This is because Saturn rules the Jews and Jupiter is a symbol of royalty. Astrologically, this was very prodigious for someone who would eventually be called “The King of the Jews.”

Yet another interesting Biblical aspect to astrology is that the twelve signs of Israel are also associated with the Zodiac signs. Jewish temples in holy lands often have the twelve signs of the Zodiac in their temple floors.

There is also support for astrology in the book of Genesis. In Genesis 1:14 -1:15, it is written,

"And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the Earth.’ And it was so." ‘

Another famous astrology reference to do with signs in the sky is in Luke 21:25-27,

"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the Earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the Earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."

The Bible also frequently refers to the Morning Star or the Lightbringer. This is another name for the planet of Venus, which shines brightly as the sun rises.

In Revelations 22:16, Jesus even calls himself the morning star saying,

 "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright morning star."

No discussion of the Bible’s relationship to astrology would be complete without some reference to the Piscean Age. Jesus was born under the end of the age of Aries (the ram or lamb)

In astrology, each age lasts 2160 years and right now we are at the tail end of the Piscean age. When Jesus found his “fishers of men” that were the twelve disciples, it was beginning of the Age of Pisces. There was the feeding of fishes to hungry people at the Sermon of the Mount and Christians are often called specula, which means little fishes.

Astrology refers to every 2160 years as a new "age," which is a different sign of the zodiac that comes into position to influence the Earth. The Bible describes events that will occur according to the signs of the astrological "ages".

A commonly used symbol in the Christian churches is the "Vesica Piscis," which is Latin for "mouth of the fish". Its shape resembles a fish without a tail and is identical to the Zodiac sign that is often used for Pisces.

I think people really need to think about why they choose to be apart of religious congregations. They need to figure out if they are seeking truth about God, life, death and everything else in between because religion and spirituality are different. Truth is easy to find when we keep open minds and hearts. And I believe Sylvia Browne when she says she thinks Jesus had a july birth.

OOOoooooppppsssss! I meant to say that Jesus was born under the sign of Capricorn in Astrology not Aquarius. Sorry. He probably had a rising sign or something like that of a Pisces. Maybe He also had another moon/sun sign of Aries. We all have more than one sign connecting within us.

When some people have asked me how I can claim to be a Christian and yet believe in astrology, I tell them to look no further than the wise men who studied the stars and came in search of the King of the Jews. Their knowledge may not have been pinpoint accurate, but it led them pretty close. Of course, those who studied the Scriptures were able to steer them towards Bethlehem rather than Jerusalem, but the magi knew the WHEN if not the exact WHERE.

Jesus was born over Christmas so that means Jesus was an Aquarius in Astrology. What are you people talking about? I do agree w/some of what I read about the Bible and Astrology however, if you have the right Christian Doctor/Pastor teaching you The Word out of the Bible you would get the full teaching and understanding of the whole picture. I'm going to ask my Pastor about all this. I find it interesting. Can't wait to see what my pastor says.

I agree with almost everything you wrote except for Jesus' Birthday. He was a Pisces - not an Aries. No Aries would give himself up to help others -they are too selfish. It is their youthful perception of life. Pisces, on the other hand, freely give of themselves. It is their wise old nature to do so. Also, being a ram, Aries tend to be more aggressive where Pisces are much more passive in their approach. No Aries would allow himself to be hung on a cross - he would fight it. A Pisces would willing to be a martyr for something he believed in.

I would caution the person who just mentioned King Saul to reread the story of Saul and the witch of Endor. She was definitely NOT an astrologer! In fact, she was a medium - probably a phony medium who dealt with "familiar spirits" and expected to call up an imposter spirit and received the shock of her life when the real Prophet Samuel appeared!

I don't believe that these signs of the Zodiac are in conjunction with the signs which are told of by the Bible.

In the bible King Saul went to an astrologer for answers and Samuel the profit was displeased because he went against the word of the Lord and Kind Saul and his son Jonathan were eventiallly killed for rebellion against the word of the Lord
