Astrology is an ancient creation that is older than humans and older than animals. The heavens predate most creations of which humans are aware.
In Christianity, astrology is negative because people have a tendency to turn to the stars for answers more than they turn to God, the actual creator of the stars. (see this post on Is Astrology Satanic?). Some even say that it is demonic but I don’t know any demons so I can’t comment on that.
The fun thing about the first book of the Holy Bible –
the book of Genesis
– are the records of when God created the natural resources that we see all the time.
The moon and stars, they can be observed every clear night. God mentions their creation in Genesis, too.
On the Fourth day, the stars were created.
“And God said, let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to make seasons and days and years,”
Signs… that’s one word for astrology. Astrological signs. But, don’t overreact about it. God created these things to mark certain areas in time. There are patterns in this creation.
Getting “carried away” is when people use star signs to define them. All of God’s creations work together.
After all, a brand new star popped up when Jesus came on the scene. Of course the stars are important. How about appreciating the One who created them.
