Why You Can Have Faith In Both Christianity & Astrology

Some Christians say Astrology is evil, witchcraft and just pure black divination but today in this article I will be explain why the both are actually compatible and people that say otherwise need to understand there’s no right or wrong answer here.
Astrology has been practiced for thousand and thousand of years and so has Christianity while Astrology is technically older both practices are just as valid as each other.

I want everyone to know I’m more spiritual than religious all though I do believe in god and i do believe Jesus was real.

The Bible Is Open for Interpretation

The bible has been translated in to many many languages and mistakes can happen for example many words never existed back in biblical times for example the word “cousin” never existed in biblical times and blood ties without an official name was often referred to as “relative” or similar words for example take these bellow

  1. Luke 1:58 (New Living Translation): “Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had been very merciful to her, and everyone rejoiced with her.”
  2. Matthew 1:12 (King James Version): “And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;”
  3. Luke 1:36 (New International Version): “Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month.”

So what does this has to do with Astrology being apparently evil you say?
Well people often refer to this verse when debunking astrology from a Christian perspective

Isaiah 47:13-14: – “Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you. Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. These are not coals for warmth; this is not a fire to sit by.”

This verse here does NOT mention star signs, or birth charts astrology and its clearly speaking about predictive astrology while part of astrology this form of astrology is different.
We can confirm that this verse isn’t debunking star signs or birth charts but is speaking about the newspaper-style horoscopes we see today that claim it can tell your future, In this verse god is either debunking predictive astrology or challenging them it does not mention star signs or birth charts.

predictive astrology is NOT exactly the same as the astrology telling back your personality.
All though many people also believe there is a few verses in the bible that can back up that the bible supports star signs/birth chart astrology, once again the bible is open for interpretation so I’m not saying I’m right but i am saying to be more open minded as we cannot fully confirm what each verse in the bible truly means all of the time, its up to the people translating it too.

Luke 21:25-26 (New International Version):
“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars.
On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.”

part of this verse is definitely about eschatological prophecy but could it be possible that this could include astrology? well lets explore further

Genesis 1:14 (New International Version): “And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years.'”

as you can see it is mentioned twice that the stars are to be “served as signs” if this was only because of other certain things then why would it be mentioned twice in two different times of the bible,
Why would God make it for other signs but not personality signs?
in my opinion i don’t think that would make sense.

2: The Bible Can Be Viewed As An Astrology Book

Jesus twelve disciples also happen to have their own unique star sign traits lets finish off by exploring this too.

PETER – ARIES

Peter, also known as Simon or Cephas, is often associated with the Aries sign. He’s portrayed as vibrant and fiery, akin to the traits of Aries individuals. Peter, renowned for his leadership, founded the New Church and is still revered in Catholicism as its foremost leader, with all Popes considered his successors.

Throughout the Bible, Peter’s impulsive nature is evident. He often changed his mind quickly. When Jesus was arrested, Peter impulsively attacked one of the arresting officers. Despite Jesus’ forewarning, Peter denied knowing him multiple times, illustrating a struggle akin to an Aries.

Reference: John 18:25-27

SIMON – TAURUS

Simon the Zealot, often associated with Taurus, exemplified concerns about wealth and property. He adamantly refused to pay taxes to Caesar despite Jesus’ teachings about rendering to Caesar what’s due. Much like Taurus individuals, Simon prioritized security and material possessions.

Simon’s steadfastness and materialistic tendencies align with typical Taurus behavior. Once he formed an opinion, he rarely wavered from it.

Reference: Matthew 22:21

JAMES – GEMINI

James is often linked with Gemini due to his versatility and eloquence. Like Gemini, James had various identities and roles. Some attribute the Book of James to him and consider him one of Jesus’ brothers. However, other interpretations differ, suggesting he may have been a cousin or a disciple of Christ’s follower Alphaeus.

James’ multifaceted nature resonates with the Gemini sign, known for its duality. If indeed the author of James, his eloquence mirrors the communicative skills of Geminis.

Reference: James 1:8

ANDREW – CANCER

Andrew, brother of Peter, is associated with Cancer. Like Cancerians, Andrew was family-oriented, compassionate, and often played a supportive role. His initial reaction to encountering Jesus was to share the news with his brother Peter.

Andrew’s caring and sympathetic nature resonate with Cancer’s characteristics. He exemplifies the familial loyalty and concern for others often attributed to Cancer individuals.

Reference: John 1:41-42

JOHN – LEO

John, often seen as the Leo, was a prominent leader in the Early Church and is believed to have authored several books in the New Testament. He possessed qualities typical of a Leo, including a desire for recognition and leadership.

John’s affinity for the spotlight is evident in his detailed accounts of heavenly visions in Revelation. Leos are known for their generosity and love, traits mirrored in John’s actions and writings.

Reference: John 13:23

PHILIP – VIRGO

Philip, associated with Virgo, was known for his analytical nature and inquisitiveness. He introduced Jesus to Nathaniel after thorough consideration, reflecting Virgo’s tendency for detailed research.

Philip’s cautious and detail-oriented approach aligns with Virgo’s traits. He epitomizes the thoughtful and diligent nature of Virgo individuals.

Reference: John 1:45

NATHANIEL – LIBRA

Nathaniel, or Bartholomew, is often attributed to Libra due to his clear opinions and persuasive communication style. His initial skepticism upon hearing of Jesus reflects Libra’s tendency for tactless speech.

Nathaniel’s charming and persuasive personality resonates with Libra’s characteristics. He embodies the fairness and communication skills typical of Libra individuals.

Reference: John 1:46

THOMAS – SCORPIO

Thomas, also known as Doubting Thomas, is linked with Scorpio due to his skepticism and demand for evidence. His insistence on physical proof of Jesus’ resurrection reflects Scorpio’s tendency to question and seek validation.

Thomas’ unwavering determination after receiving evidence mirrors Scorpio’s steadfastness. He epitomizes the intense and probing nature of Scorpio individuals.

Reference: John 20:25

JAMES – SAGITTARIUS

James, son of Zebedee, is associated with Sagittarius. Together with Peter and John, he forms one of the three great leaders of the early churches. Sagittarians are known for their adventurous spirit and honesty, traits James exemplified.

James’ love for travel and justice, as well as his martyrdom, aligns with Sagittarius’ characteristics. He embodies the honesty and courage typical of Sagittarius individuals.

Reference: Mark 10:35

MATTHEW – CAPRICORN

Matthew, the tax collector, is often attributed to Capricorn. He held a position in the Roman government, reflecting Capricorn’s respect for authority and dedication to work.

Matthew’s meticulousness and ambition resonate with Capricorn’s traits. He exemplifies the hardworking and disciplined nature of Capricorn individuals.

Reference: Matthew 26:25

THADDEUS – AQUARIUS

Thaddeus, or Judas, is associated with Aquarius due to his curiosity and questioning nature. His inquiry about Jesus’ manifestation reflects Aquarius’ tendency to seek knowledge and understanding.

Thaddeus’ loyalty and inquisitiveness align with Aquarius’ characteristics. He embodies the intellectual curiosity and independence typical of Aquarius individuals.

Reference: John 14:22

JUDAS – PISCES

Judas Iscariot, often attributed to Pisces, betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver and later experienced deep remorse. His introspective and withdrawn nature reflects Pisces’ tendency for sensitivity and introspection.

Judas’ tendency to withdraw and reflect after his betrayal mirrors Pisces’ characteristics. He epitomizes the emotional depth and compassion typical of Pisces individuals.

Reference: Matthew 26:25

If Astrology was so evil and god hated it and never made this system then why do all he 12 disciples also match up with the 12 signs of the zodiac?

My final conclusion is the Story of Magi that followed a star to find the birth place of Jesus which can be found in Matthew 2:1-12 while this does not directly say they are astrologers the word “Magi” translates to astrologer and other occult sciences at the time.
Astrology was also a science in those times so why would god say a defined science which it was back in those days is evil and wrong?

This is all I’m going to say in this article but i hope this clears it up that the bible does not directly debunk all astrology practices humans made that up thinking their interpretation of the bible is correct when in fact its based on opinions and thoughts.

So While some may perceive a conflict between practicing astrology and being a Christian, it’s important to recognize that interpretations of religious texts can vary widely and is open to opinion not everything in text is how you think some need decent translations and interpretation.

Christianity teaches that God created the universe and all that is in it. Studying the stars and celestial bodies can be seen as a way to appreciate and see at the intricacies of God’s creation.
Rather than conflicting with Christian beliefs, astrology can complement a Christian worldview by adding a deeper sense of awe and reverence for the wonders of the cosmos.

As long as you don’t put the stars, planets and your astrology birth chart before god and as long as you are not fully trusting in astrology before god it is absolutely fine to practice in it and have faith in it as well as side your Christianity practices too.
