how does the Astrology work within the Bible?
traditionally speaking since the translation of the Biblical Text from the native Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic to English in addition to the supposed ‘reform’ of religious movement in the middles ages, Astrology has been deemed as evil.
surprisingly the practice of Astronomy, Astrology and various forms of Divination were practiced in the Temples from the Old Testament well into the New Testament, as we will cover later in this article.
What is Astrology?
Astronomy is the study of the Astros and under the bracket of Alchemy.
under the realms of Astronomy is Astrology which is the observation of cycles in the Cosmos and the applied science to all life in general.
the delicate balance of the Astro Light Bodies project amounts of Light-Frequencies that work in tandem. these Light-Frequencies reaches the Earth and according to each individuals Natal Chart will directly work through them, and hopefully with them to master themselves.
majority of the western culture views Astrology as a divination tool instead of a literal science. and commonly used as a vice instead of a powerful way to “know thyself” and to “master thyself“.
Some Try to Say…
the most common reference I hear about Astrology in the Bible is found in the New Testament where the Three Wisemen follow the North Star to the infant Christ. or even referencing the mention of the Sun and Moon as proof the Bible supports Astrology.
this is a fair attempt at proving that Astrology is mentioned in the Bible however, it doesn’t prove that it was and should be an acceptable practice for traditional Bible-Believers.
in this article I hope to provide various forms of information from ancient sources , including but not limited to the Bible that will at least cause you and other readers to double think if Astrology should be an acceptable practice among Christians.
Does the Bible Really Condemn Astrology?
in short the Biblical Text both supports and condemns Astrology and various forms of Divination, however there’s only one exception which is reserved for the Select, the High Priest’s.
Deuteronomy 4:19 “And when you look up to the sky and see the sun,—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping …”
1) Astrology is NOT worshiping the Astros or Cosmic Bodies. it is commonly known that these are a created source not the Source, and like anything else it’s up to the person how balanced they are within the utilization of these tool.
2) in the previous verses it mentions about making graven images of people or animals etc, here one could point out that the Zodiac or Mazzaroth contains animal symbols. these are much like the ancient Alphabet glyphs to only represent the universal energies and symbolism of that Zodiac House.
3) the highlighted Commandments were given to the other 11 tribes of the Twelve Tribes. there’s only one tribe that has the authority to practice Divine Divination and rights to go into the “Holy of Holies” which are the Tribe of Levi (Aaron) the High Priests.
i could go on with other scriptures but I think point #3 overs the argument as for who can practice Divination and Astrology.
Casting Down the Naysayers
the HolyDays celebrated in the Bible are astrological based, unlike most of American holidays that take place on a specific day annually. for example, Christ•Mass is always on December 25th same day.
speaking of ChristMass this day is centered around the Winter Equinox (December 21) during this timeframe the brightest Star Sirius aka Mother Mary that “births” the Christ.
a great example is Easter or Resurrection Sun or Sonday. this day celebrates the Resurrection of the Sun…Son the first Sunday after the Ecclesiastical Full Moon that occurs on or closest to the Spring Equinox.
SIDE-NOTE: the Equinox’s are either the birth of the Sun or death of the Sun. during the Spring is the birth and during the Fall is the ‘fall’ of the Sun. a literal Cross ( + ) represents the Equinox, equally masculine and feminine meeting together. Spring being feminine and Fall masculine as the sun will ‘die’ in Winter and rise again.
why does this HolyDay revolve around the Full Moon?
Rosh Hashanah is another Holiday that’s centered around Moon activity, in this case the new moon.
this is a vast topic that deserves its own series of studies which we have a few on our YouTube
unknown by most that there is an actual Hebrew Astrology.
in the Hebrew like with the language is based on daily life activities. for example Aleph is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet with glyph of an ox head, very similar to the symbol for Aries.
Mazzaroth (12 Signs or Constellations) is mentioned in the Book of Job in relation to several Astrological bodies such as Orion, in other texts as planets and zodiac.
a popular source of Biblical Astrological evidence is account of Ezekiel, called Ezekiel’s Wheel. from this vision is where the 10th Tarot card came from, Wheel of Fortune. (later deciding if this card)
Ezekiel 1:20-21 this chapter entails the descriptions of four headed Beast; Lion is Leo, Bull is Taurus, Man is Aquarius and Eagle is Scorpio. all these creatures have been mentioned primarily in the Old Testament as some form of sacrifice unto – YHVH (Hebrew God)
moving to a similar vision in the New Testament Acts 10:9-16 here is where the Apostle Peter has a vision of a similar beast coming from the four corners of Heaven.
these four beasts and zodiacs are also the following:
- four Archangels: Michel, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel
- four corners of Heaven: North, South, East, West
- four Apostles: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John
- four categories of the 12 Tribes: Priests, Praisers, Protectors, Possessioners
this is a vast topic, we can dive into the the various captivity’s and diasporas of the 12 Tribes which does aid in shaping of spiritual practices, diet and other behaviors that contributes to the culture of a people.
the fact that one of the oldest known Astrology’s is Babylonian Astrology, and it’s well documented that the 12 Tribes were in captivity several times in Babylon.
Does This Mean Hebrew Astrology is a Copycat?
yes and no. we will cover this topic in both The Babel Effect and The Trinity Template: The Universal Design. you may also find useful The Paradise Method, how to decode any scripture
