The Three Wise Men who sought Jesus at his birth were astrologers. The bible often contradicts itself which is why I have a hard time with it in its current form.
In 2 Samuel 7:13-16
13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with the rod of men, with floggings inflicted by men. 15 But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever.' "
King James Bible St Mathew 2.9
When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

The star was a natural phenomenon, it was very visible in the countries to the east of the Anatolia peninsula, but it was not a continuous apparition, it was recurrent however, it had cycles of minor or major intensity in the sky....
This strange property of discontinuity in the phenomenon is what makes many Astronomers to believe the Star of Bethlehem was a triple planetary conjunction occurred in the year 6 BC over the sign of Aries, the one that is associated with historic correlations with the Hebrew Nation, and that took effect since the month of April to December of that Year, having Jupiter as the dominant Planet, the biggest one of the solar system and that since ancient times is correlated with the arrival of great kings.
This was for years a mere hypothesis but a recent discoveries of coins that were made in Syria by the time we are referring and that show a powerful star shining over the constellation of Aries, have confirmed that this event was so remarkable that even the Romans decided that it has some divine meaning.
An account from the Astronomer Firmicus Maternus, that lived in that epoch also is a confirmation of the celestial phenomenon, that again was completely natural, there was nothing of satanic on it.
It was Dr Michael Molnar who discovered these so old roman coins, that were made in Antioch of Syria, today Turkey, he was a reputed astronomer. Here a paper about the topic.
