It’s Not All In The Stars


Do you know what the Bible has to say about horoscopes and zodiac signs? Neither word is actually mentioned in the Bible, but God does have so much to say about so-called insight from fortune-tellers, mediums, or others who seek wisdom from sources not of Him. In truth, zodiac signs are not nearly as harmless as some might believe. Horoscopes are actually predictions made by astrologers based on sky maps, star charts, and zodiac signs to help people understand who they are and what will happen to them in life. Some people believe them to be true, while others think them to be ridiculous.


When God created the earth, he set the stars in the sky on the fourth day, proclaiming, “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for the lights in the firmament in heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth. And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:14-18



Throughout Scripture, there is mention of those who study the stars. Some of the mentions is bad, some is good, and some is more neutral. For example, studying the stars to track time or seasons or to get across the ocean to a distant land doesn’t seem to be sinful in any way. But studying and interpreting these stars and then divining or predicting things to come is akin to idolatry, witchcraft, and fortune-telling, which are identified as sinful and detestable in the eyes of the Lord. They are included in “occult practices” that God condemns.


As God tells His people in Deuteronomy 18:10-12, “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”


This goes back to the notion of idolatry that God expressly forbids in the Ten Commandments, noting we should have no other gods that we worship before Him. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any like-ness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thy self to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20:3-6).


Just as God doesn’t want us bowing before statues of Baal or Asherah as you can see in New Testament’s (2 Kings 23:4), He also doesn’t want us heeding the directives of stars (and astrologers) in order to decide whether to do one thing or another.

We are to listen to and heed God and God only.


Follow what God and His one and only Son directs you to do. Forget about the rest of this nonsense.


God Loves You! Jesus Loves You!! Go and walk with God!
