Why Is Astrology A Sin?

The question of why is a burning one in today’s society. The Christian religion is founded on a belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ, but some of us have no trouble using forms of divinity, including astrology, to predict the future. After all, it is a form of mysticism. There are even people who believe in Nostradamus and Babylonian mythology.

Isaiah 47:12

The Bible says that astrologers are a sin because they seek to make predictions without God’s Word. Babylon was ruled by Nebuchadnezzar, who consulted astrologers to interpret his dreams. However, these astrologers were unable to tell the king what the dream meant. In response, the king called the prayerful prophet Daniel before the king. Daniel answered the king’s question in Daniel 2:27-28 NKJ. He said that God in heaven reveals secrets to us.

The Babylonians practiced astrology and horoscopes to predict the future. They believed that the heavenly bodies can predict the future. However, the Babylonians were wrong and their actions were a sin. Their horoscopes were inaccurate and unreliable. The Babylonians had a mercantile advantage and strong walls and gates. Their land was fertile and abundant.

The Bible says that Babylonians trusted astrologers and star-gazers. Babylonians were prone to making predictions and taking advantage of their powers. They failed to trust God and the results were disastrous. They trusted astrology and false gods to gain an advantage over their enemies. Ultimately, this practice led to the destruction of Babylon. The Babylonians learned their lesson. They learned that their sins brought them confusion.

Similarly, astrologers should be heedful of interpreting the text and applying it to their lives. Astrologers should study the Bible in context, especially the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance. There are some differences in interpretation between the Greek and Hebrew versions. One version renders this verse as ‘raised your veil’ while the other version uses ‘locks’.

Babylonian mythology

Despite the fact that Babylonian astrology is centuries old, there is no way to check its accuracy. Its astrologers were religious and possessed political roles, so they tried to build a system of astrology on empirical data. Babylonian astrologers were priests, but they also performed important political roles. They were responsible for interpreting the king’s dreams, which was an important political function.

Many Bible scholars believe the Tower of Babel was actually an ancient ziggurat, or “sky temple” as it is commonly known, in Mesopotamia. In addition to being a temple to Marduk, the Etemenanki also had 7 terraces, each painted a different color. This was likely inspired by the “seven lights” in the sky, or the background stars.

While the zodiac signs are symbolic representations of gods, they are idolatrous. The astrological signs represent attributes of God, which determine one’s identity and destiny. This is not the God of the Bible! But Babylonian astrology carries a similar guilt. Those who believe that they are the embodiment of God are idolatrous and are guilty of idolatry.

The astrological concepts derived from Babylonian mythology are not based in any scientific evidence. The only evidence for the validity of this theory comes from the experience of the participants of the religion. Many ancient astrologists interpreted the constellations of the heavens and the planets as a means to determine the fate of people. However, today, there are few modern scientists who believe in the validity of astrology.

Moreover, astrology of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries has many elements of Babylonian mythology. Today, most astrologers do not talk about stars and star-gods, but instead define these elements as human powers. Moreover, the Babylonian mythology helped form astrological properties that are still used in modern astrologers. Its ancient counterpart, known as the Babylonian star religion, had a profound impact on the scientific worldview.

Babylonian cuneiform

There are two distinct lines of astrology. The first is called “vulgar” and the second is called “learned”. Both were based on the writings of the Hellenistic Vulgata and Babylonian astrologers. Both were used as means of divination. It’s not clear if these two lines overlap or if astrology is a sin.

Ancient Babylonians studied the cosmos in order to make sense of their own star constellations. They believed that celestial bodies carried messages from the gods and were thus best understood by studying them. They also derived the names of prominent fixed stars by observing celestial phenomena such as eclipses and conjunctions. In some cases, the Babylonians used astrology to determine the positions of stars in the sky.

Despite the widespread skepticism, Babylonian astrology was a popular religion. It is believed that the Babylonians began practicing astrology in the third millennium BCE, and they had developed an organized system by the second millennium BC. The Babylonians focused on predicting events in the night sky and predicted the movements of fixed stars. The Babylonians also developed a reliable method of predicting the future by the fourth century BC.

The ancient Babylonians used astronomical charts to interpret the sky. They attributed meaning to the movements of the stars and planets. For example, someone with Mars in their ascendant would appear aggressive, much like the Roman god of war. On the other hand, someone with Venus in their ascendant would be beautiful and attractive. In short, astrology charts are an excellent shorthand for orienting yourself to your personal predisposition and purpose in life.


In the New Testament, prophets were required to be 100% correct. Prophetic knowledge is a gift of the Holy Spirit. God is beyond time, and he sees the beginning of human history from a higher plane than the earth. Only the prophets of God are infallible, so Nostradamus’ predictions are presumptions. However, Christians believe that their prophetic knowledge is based on the word of God.

As a Jew of Jewish descent, Nostradamus consulted planetary tables to determine where and when events would take place. By the fourteenth century, planetary tables had become widely available. Using them, he was able to give precise dates and times for a variety of historical events, and he made his predictions after researching the position of planets at historical moments. While he often stated a time, he also left the reader to determine the timing.

As a teenager, I was horrified to learn that Nostradamus had foreseen the September 11 attacks, and that he was not divinely inspired. Ignorant people would quickly forget that a prophecy is based on historical events. Nonetheless, Nostradamus’ predictions were often inaccurate and exaggerated, and many people still believe that it was accurate.

Nostradamus was born Michel de Notredame on December 14, 1503. He was one of nine children, and was well educated. His father, Jaume de Nostradame, was a wealthy grain dealer and part-time notary. His grandfather, Guy Gassonet, had converted to Catholicism 50 years earlier, and was well aware of the influence of the celestial bodies.

Alan Leo

Many people ask, “Why is Alan Leo a sin in astrologers’ eyes?” The astrologer was born under a sign that is considered evil in Scripture. Fortunately, he did not take a cigarette or consume alcohol. His wife Bessie Leo also wrote his biography, and took over the publishing and editing work for Modern Astrology. Leo completed a new book about every three months, and was active in astrology journals and contributed articles to others. In the union index of Theosophical Periodicals, he published forty-six articles, and Bessie Leo contributed sixteen articles to the same publication.

Alan Leo was one of the first modern astrologers. His controversial theories led to the development of Sun sign astrology and the introduction of horoscope columns. He worked alongside his wife Bessie, who was also an astrologer. A new book devoted to the astrologer’s life tells the story of their relationship. It takes an unusually long time to understand a man’s motivations, but this is the basis of a sin.

The astrological Manuals series by Alan Leo is a good example of this. They are popular books written by the famous astrologer. If you want to know more about the books Alan Leo has written, you can find them at Google Books. In addition to his dictionary, you can find his other popular books in the “Directions and Directing” series. They are published in the original English language and are still widely used in modern astrology.

Despite his alleged sin, many astrologers have defended the practice of Alan Leo. While astrology does not have a patron saint, people make money off of it. However, there are other examples of fake astrology, and Leo’s horoscope has been the subject of several debates. The astrology community is in need of a more balanced view of Alan Leo.
