Is it okay for Christians to represent zodiac signs? Let’s take a look at what the Bible teaches about zodiacs. Last week we reviewed why, as God’s children, we are not to claim a zodiac sign from Christians and Zodiac Signs. We are to rest firmly in identifying only with whom God says we are.
ASTROLOGY AND DEMONIC SPIRITS
According to the Watchman Bible Study Group and “Cult Watch” by John Ankerberg & John Weldo, they had this to say, “Proof that the spirits (demons) are interested in promoting astrology as seen in the following two examples.
- First, one of the spirits who communicated through mystic and occultist Alice Bailey (founder of Lucius Trust, formerly Lucifer Trust) telepathically transmitted many books to her, including Esoteric Astrology.
- A second example is Edgar Cayce[WBSG Note: Cayce was a leading occultist and Satanist], a powerful medium. Throughout most of his life, the spirits speaking through him endorsed the practice of astrology.
The 14,000 readings Cayce gave in trance are considered the largest single body of psychic information in the world.
Over 2500 of them dealt with what were termed “life readings” and “almost all [of them] refer to past incarnations and specific astrological or planetary influences bearing on the present.”
When asked if it was right and proper to study astrology, the spirits that spoke through Cayce said: “very very very much so.”
Leviticus 19:31 KJV says, Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.
1 Chronicles 10:13 KJV says, So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it;
My Christian brothers and sisters, astrology, is serious business. If the Bible has many scriptures about this occult practice, He is not okay with us playing around with this.
Signs in the Sun – Zodiacs
In my recent research, I came across an article on Live About, and it was entitled Astrology from a Christian’s perspective – Signs in the Sun Moon and Stars by Carmern Turner-Schott April 10. 2019. This article is very harmful to an undiscerning or baby Christian.
What stood out the most to me is she kept saying, “she feels.” I feel that astrology was a tool created by God for us to understand ourselves better, I feel that there are many biblical verses that support astrology.”
Her statement is a red flag because we are not to exalt our feelings over God’s Word! What God says, trumps our feelings.

Additionally, she said the three wise men were Astrologers, and she also stated that “Many Christians are opening up their minds to things that they never dreamed of before.”
She also discussed how people like Hippocrates, Sir Isaac Newton, and Pythagoras talked about why we are to believe in astrology.
With your discernment hat on, why would you just now be learning something so-called “new” thousands of years after Christ’s death? And why do you care about Hippocrates’ opinion? It’s not like you don’t have the life-giving food and written authority found in the Word of God?

The Word is given to us to know the mind of Christ, so we won’t rely on our thoughts and feelings (from our fickle soul). When it comes to sin and sound judgment absolute truth is the measurement of thoughts.
Don’t you realize that the mind (which is a part of your soul) is the devil’s playground? Are you aware that he also plants thoughts and sets up high places in your mind? Why would Paul tell us that our mind needs to be renewed (Romans 12:2)?

I’ll tell you why. It’s because it can and will get easily polluted and contaminated with things that are in opposition to God’s mind.
Your old mind is full of remnants of your fleshly sin nature. However, you must unlearn the old you and grow into your new identity (2 Cor 12:9). Do away with zodiac signs and put on Christs’ mind.
The writer of Ecclesiastes states that there is nothing “new under the sun. Sadly, this lady also counsels teens and families by incorporating her strong astrology beliefs into her sessions with them.
God regarded this practice as one of the reasons Saul died.
1 Samuel 15:23 says, For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has rejected you as king.”
Rebellion and Divination
Although you may not be calling up the dead (which is necromancy), you must remember that when you dabble with horoscopes online, in books, and your favorite magazine, you are worshiping an idol.
When you seek out more info on numerology, let strangers come up to you and tell you your future, tell you about some aura they get from you, and identify with your zodiac signs—it’s a sin against the Most High.
These activities must be repented of and left alone immediately, no matter how tempting and entertaining they are.
The scripture teaches that the just shall live by faith (Hebrews 10:38). Faith means that we put our hope into the all-knowing, perfect God, and leave the outcome up to Him.
Only He knows what will happen in the future. Therefore, we must walk with Him and seek out His will and wisdom daily.
He’s the One that directs our path, not the position of the stars, moon, or a birthdate.
If you got to the end of this and still are not convinced about zodiac signs, I pray that you take heed in due time. I’ll leave you with the words of,
Isaiah 47:12-14 KJV, Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. 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. 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.
The physics, astrologers, witches, etc. whom dabbled in this since their youth can’t even save themselves. Jesus is the only God that can save. Yes, they do have access to some things due to their communication with demons. Communicating with demons dishonors God. Stop being a willing vessel and opening yourself up to demons to occupy space that only God should be entertaining.
Soul Note: Nonetheless as for you, reading and researching anymore into this occult practice will keep you at odds against God. He loves you too much to let you go down the wrong path. Therefore, the next time a stranger wants to tell you all they know about you don’t let them. Refuse to entertain horoscopes, just know that you are communicating with demons, so it will be wise to walk away now.
Thank you so much for reading this, don’t forget to share this post with two friends and leave a comment below.
