Horoscopes Are Evil

“13Β Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.14Β Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.” – Isaiah 47:13-14

Have you ever glanced over at the horoscope column in a newspaper or magazine just for “fun” or out of curiosity? Do you even deliberately look for it each day? As you do so, maybe you say things like, “I don’t take this seriously,” “it’s just like reading the funnies,” “I know a lot of people who do this,” or perhaps “I don’t really believe in astrology so it’s okay.” Or maybe you are really looking for guidance.

The word “horoscope,” which comes from the Greek and means, “watcher of the hour,” was first coined in an ancient, declining Greece that began to tolerate astrology after long resisting it. Horoscopes, as innocuous as they may appear, are not just products of the imagination. The authors of these columns are usually astrologers; some are psychics. Astrologers have purposely studied what they believe to be the meanings of the planets, the zodiac signs, and other astrological data. Along with this information, they consider the present positions of planets (and the sun and moon), and how they interact with the sun signs of Aries, Taurus, Gemini, etc., in order to give horoscope advice. Since the moon changes signs every 2.5 days, its position is a key element in the forecasting.

Astrological philosophy is based on the occult worldview that asserts “as above, so below.” According to this view, everything in the universe is one and is connected; therefore, the patterns of the planets reflect our lives on earth. As a former astrologer, I can tell you that although many astrologers scorn horoscope columns as “pop” astrology of little value, the astrological worldview is essential even to the writing of a horoscope. When you read such a column, you are in a subtle way either accepting that worldview or assigning some kind of value to it.

The belief that the patterns and movements of the planets, sun and moon reflect our lives is contradictory to the view of a living, omniscient God who created the heavenly bodies to reflect and proclaim His glory, not ours. Astrology also is often intertwined with the teaching that since we are all connected to the universe by a force or energy (which is sometimes considered to be divine or to be God), then everything in the universe is one and therefore, there is no true distinction between man and nature; this is called monism (all is one and one is all). Identifying God as one with the universe is pantheism (God is all, all is God) or is sometimes panentheism (God is contained within the universe), and is totally at odds with the belief in a Creator who created the world out of nothing and is distinct from His creation. God is present in the world and transcends it, but He is distinct from it.

Since astrology is an occult practice of divination severely condemned in God’s word, even horoscope columns are rooted in the occult. They may be marketed in trendy magazines with the latest slang, but this packaging is deceptive. If you take reading horoscopes lightly or “in fun,” you are denying that the occult is forbidden or possibly dangerous. As someone who was involved in this and related areas for a number of years, I can attest to the dangers inherent in these practices. In the Deuteronomy passage, God warns us against divination, sorcery, spiritism and interpreting omens; such systems are not from Him. To read horoscopes is to take God’s word lightly and is trifling with the occult.

The very roots of astrology are in ancient paganism and worship of the planets as gods, making astrology a true form of “fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness ” (Ephesians 5:11). Most astrologers are involved in other forms of occultism and New Age practices such as tarot cards, numerology, belief in reincarnation, having spirit guides, Eastern meditation practices, and so forth. Thus, reading horoscopes (as well as consulting an astrologer) is to be receptive to something coming from this kind of spiritual worldview.

Being an occult art, astrology is connected to the paranormal powers of the occult. This paranormal effect manifested for me when I would concentrate on a chart in preparation for a reading or during the session with the client: I would feel a distinct energy flowing between the chart and myself. I called it “tuning into the chart.” I usually felt guided through the chart, and seemed to know where to go in the chart for information and which information was relevant for the client. I also experienced psychic “flashes” which came to my mind in words or pictures. I usually thought this guidance was coming from one of my spirit guides or that I was tapping into a psychic data bank. Surprisingly, direct clues from the client distracted rather than helped me; I preferred not to know anything about the client other than their birthdate, birthplace, and time of birth, information that was needed to compute the chart. I often recorded charts on tapes for absent clients whom I had never met, and this was sometimes easier than having the clients physically present. I learned from talking to other astrologers that they shared these experiences. The longer I practiced astrology, the stronger the guidance and psychic flashes. I realize now that this information and “guidance” comes from demonic sources much the same way a medium or psychic receives some of their data, and it was accurate enough to “hook” clients into coming back and recommending me to friends, as well as validating astrology for my own benefit.

If you are reading this as a Christian, please take God’s word to heart and do not consult horoscopes, even in fun. It’s easy to get in the habit of reading them. If by coincidence a horoscope forecast is right one day, you would become even more curious and captivated, and actually might get interested enough in astrology to consult an astrologer.

If you are reading this as a non-Christian, or even as someone who practices astrology, please realize that I am not attacking you or astrologers. This is about the practice of astrology and what God has to say about it; it is not about being “against” anyone. Please keep an open mind, and consider whether it is the Creator who should be consulted rather than a divinatory practice using the Creator’s creation. God reveals Himself as Creator in nature and in the design of the universe, and in the fact everyone has a conscience, automatically knowing there is a right and wrong. But the fullest revelation of God came in His son, Jesus Christ, who suffered on the cross the penalty for our sins, who bodily resurrected the third day, and who will come again to judge the living and the dead. We also have God’s revelation in His word, the 66 books of the Bible.

Divination and looking to creation or psychic powers

“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer.”Β Deuteronomy 18.10

Then they made their sons and their daughters pass through the fire, and practiced divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him.Β 2 Kings 17.17

When they say to you, “Consult the mediums and the spiritists who whisper and mutter,” should not a people consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?”Β Isaiah 8.19

You are wearied with your many counsels; let them stand forth and save you, those who divide the heavens, who gaze at the stars, who at the new moons make known what shall come upon you. Behold, they are like stubble; the fire consumes them; they cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame.Β Isaiah 47.13-14a

They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator.Β Romans 1.25

The heavens and God

LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.Β Psalm 8.1

The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.Β Psalm 19.1

Jesus

Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote–Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”Β John 1.45

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.Β Hebrews 1.1-2

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”Β John 11.25-26

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.

If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):

β€œGod, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”

  1. You, are totally Wrong .

    God Invented Astrology for an purpose and you say is evil ?

    Prophet Daniel was the master of all charts and magics and defeated the magicians and the wizards of the court and still was the God preferred. You will say that God gaved him all this gifts and made an exception right? Because he can do this because he is GOD. He don’t need any permission like we do. Right?

    Josef was a dream interpretative and still was the GOD preferred. You want to convince me that now they are in hell burning alive? Of course you can try to tell me that this gift was from God and not for bad purpose but for God Future plan? Hilarius.

    The four living creature in the front of God are the four fixed sign in the Horoscope that by the way are Ugly STOLEN- PLAGIARISM of Persian Astrology scripture from the constellation of Taurus, Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio (Eagle in antions times) don’t deny that. What a shame. God hate stealing and condemn it right? Something to say about people that stole this scripts from a other evil religious and put them into Bible?

    Moses to by his side was a a good Egyptian tricker. So he know in depth the Sky and the Zodiac. Egiptian priest teached him. Don’t forget that he was the Prince of Egipt. He know all those .

    Jesus and Buda began their mission of teaching with the end of the Saturn return period ( the so called father) . Witch cycle is every 29 years. You should know that don’t deny.

    Jesus upcoming was foretell by a STAR. Don’t forget. (some go so far to say and dare that it is Aldabaran the BIG ONE in the constellation of Taurus lied in the East. Which by the way is the angle of Sunrising right? The coming of the day the exit from darkness? Any resembles? Any?
    LET IT BE LIGHT. AND HE SAW THAT LIGHT WAS GOOD. GOD IS MY LIGHT.

    And by the way the 10 sacred commandment in the old testament are STOLEN from the 40 commandment of pagan Egypt. What a SHAME for the nation of GOD that stole so many pieces of other cultures and declared those exclusively proper of themself from GOD. Shame on those. They are the ones that will burn in the lake of fire for sure.

    (Fabrication-Liers-Killer will declare Jesus and for this they killed him) because he told the truth about them. He know them really in depth. They were not Jewish in reality you know for who i am talking. The Pharisees (the ruling class the false teacher) were not Jewish. The ordinary people yes the Pharisees no.

    And remember that even JESUS too was accused for magician practices and cooperation with evil spirits to make possible the so called miracles. But did in reality hah? Naaaah i don’t think so.
    He said, have you ever seen an Devil give an punch (fight) to another Devil? And closed their dirty devilish mouth.

    And remember that even an apostle was trying to push Jesus to fight an impostor named also Jesus in another close place that with the help of the Devils too, was doing miracles and healing people. And do you know, what Jesus answered? Let it BE. Like the Beatles song Let it BE.
    Who is not against us is with us. And the little closed mind of his beloved Apostle shout his mouth of accusatory. Right? Don’t let me be wrong.Please!

    (Remeber Devil is and Exciter,(Fruit of Adam & Eve), Lier (false promise: for sure you will not die)
    , Acusator (Job prosperity)

    Many times Jesus said to Peter his Beloved Apostle that: STAY AWAY FROM ME DEVIL. DON’T PROVOKE ME.
    (And remeber Peter was the Church-Cornerstone of the Antion Medo,Persian religious Plagiarism – Nordic Europe Paganism-CHRISTIANITY. Filthy practice till our days. This in not shame this is , is Horrible. Unacceptable.

    Say something right at least once. That every thing that has happened will happend again, is written in the sky. Its a cycle. Jesus made that clear. Yes it said that. Nothing is new. Every thing is repeating. What happened will happend again.

    I have found over 15 persons with my exact face (Clones) in a so called dating site? Something to said about that? And they are not dead they are Alive and even on line. Try to convince me to act like this isn’t happening? Or better is a devil act, not from God. Its a falsity the internet is a falsity and they are demoniac spirits that have taken my appearance with only minor changes.

    Replicas my fellow replicas. Copies in every angle. Repetition like Jesus said .I should keep my eyes & mouth close and act like nothing had happens?

    This is what Christianity teach us not to use our body seance our logic. Living as Blind man. The sad and only True.

    In one verse God said this is good and in another it says that the same is bad. We all think that GOD can’t be in ERROR so why all this confusion?

    How many times God indicate to kill all male female childrens in philistine cities because they are adoring BAL. And in another verse he spare them and even condemned the Jewish who didn’t stooped their armed hand. This is Capricious behavior. Is GOD such an entity? I suppose no. Capricious is exclusive faculty of human nature. We all know that.

    Jesus in person said GOD is Life and not death so all those orders to kill philistine one time yes and next time no, came from devilish people? Right?

    Don’t judge so hard your self you will not end in the lake of fire for interpreting Zodiac Signs. Only those who: MISLEAD (devils in person- false teachers) Kill, steal, treat (Judas), rape, Desire un-proper things make hate speach, ect ect.

    PS: I have nothing against Jewish people. I respect their dedication toward GOD. And they survive in the arc of History. I also am part from an antion equal old nation as they do.
    I have studied Bible since i was little with my own desire. So i know all this lies inside this Bible.
    I belive God as Jesus did, that’s why for me is clear why they killed him. He told the truth, rape their (pharisees) mask of falsity. They killed him. End of the story.

    Expand your knowledge. Don’t let being stop by devils.

    If I say to the wicked, β€˜You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.

    When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, β€œMy Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. …

You shall surely destroy all the places where the nations whom you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. You shall tear down their altars and dash in pieces their pillars and burn their Asherim with fire. You shall chop down the carved images of their gods and destroy their name out of that place.

    Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil on their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand. They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them away; they oppress a man and his house, a man and his inheritance. Therefore thus says the Lord: behold, against this family I am devising disaster, from which you cannot remove your necks, and you shall not walk haughtily, for it will be a time of disaster.

    God condemns the use of astrology and horoscopes for many reasons. For one thing, God alone knows the future. We have no business trying to divine what God has not clearly revealed in His Word. Deuteronomy 29:29 says β€œThe secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” What has God revealed to us? He has revealed His will to us in the Word of God the Bible. We have no business in trying to divine or predict the unknown future. That is Godβ€˜s prerogative, not ours. Even if we tried, we’d likely be wrong anyway but the main reason is that it is an abomination to God. When we try to predict or know the future, we are impinging on God’s sovereignty and we are showing a lack of trust in Him.
