Astrology and the Bible

The Bible and Astrology are NOT in conflict. It is the tampering or misenterpretation of the scriptures by the priests and the clergy and other learned men that have brought the two in conflict.

The Earth and the Heavens declare the glory and will of God, and astrology is simply the universal means by which to interpret this glory or will.

Many scriptures in the bible appear to support astrology while others appear to condemn it. This contradiction often stems from the fact that many of the verses are often interpreted out of context. Also, many words, verses, and often entire segments of the bible have been changed, added or ommitted, to suit the prevailing religious or political agendas of the time.

All of the Old Testament prophets were learned in astrology, from Moses to Isaiah to Daniel. Jesus/Paul/Apollonious was the greatest astrologer of all, and so were his disciples. The twelve tribes and apostles are all based on astrological symbolism. The bible itself is an astrological textbook whose roots go back to Egypt, India, and the Orient.

Astrology, like many of its other esoteric cousins, is one of the great KEYS to unlocking the secrets of the bible -which is why it has been so condemned or persecuted. Only the ruling classes were permitted its valuable secrets. The common masses had to be kept illiterate and ignorant in order to be controlled.

I can see how many aspects of astrology are parralled in the bible, as well are many aspects of our cultures. Even time itself and how we percieve it has it's roots in astrology.

-12 houses of the Zodiac. (Although once upon a time there were supposedly 13, Ophiuchus being the one that is no longer included)
-12 Months of the year.
-12 hours of a clock.

And, of course, most groupings (not all) of 12 have their roots in astrology.

There indeed may be truth in the introduction to this thread. I suggest the author, and other curious souls, google/research the remaining mythology of Ophiuchus.

and the truth shall set you free...

And God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years, and let them be lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth."

Ancient astrologers understood what Astrology truly is, something we have lost over the centruries. It always struck me ironic that fundamentalists have Zero issues believing the 3 Magii followed a star, how God used signs in heaven to signal events, etc, but refuse to believe astrology originates from god.

I find this stuff really interesting. The connections between religions and all the symbolism... neat neat stuff.

Well theres the obvious "Fish" or "Piscis" and "Ichtus" connection.

The Age of Pisces (A.D. 1 - c.2000) during which Christianity appeared and spread out. The fish was known to have been the secret sign used by the early Christians to identify each other and to point the location of secret meetings.

The Greek word Ichtus (fish) was made up of the following phrase capitals (acrostic): Iesous Christos Theou Uios Soter (Jesus Christ Son of God, the Saviour.)

In Hinduism it was also the symbol of the Saviour Vishnu's first incarnation in the shape of a fish who saved Manu from the flood.

The ichtus symbol is the horizontal "fish bladder." The fish bladder or 'visica piscis' when oriented vertically is the womb from which all creation comes. A basic Sacred Geometry shape formed by the intersection of 2 circles around a common radii. (The fish symbol with a circle inside looks like an eye, or exactly like the CBS logo.)

The shape formed from the intersection, including a short continued line from each circle (as the fish's tail) is the shape associated with Jesus. The shape has a ratio of 265:153 or 1.73203. This ratio is called the "measure of the fish." And is also equal to the square root of Three (trinity?). In the Gosple of John, Jesus catches a miraculous 153 fish at once. So, was John aware of the Sacred Geometry connection or is it a coincidence? (Ok its not astrology, but its probably some forbidden knowledge, at least I wish math was forbidded in school..)

Jesus was the age of Piscis, and after that age we would move into the age of Aquarius. (around year 2,000 to 2,500 probably) Each Zodiac is a "house," like.. 'the moon is in the house of Taurus,' or whatever they say. And the symbol for Aquarius is a Man (sometimes woman) pouring water out of a clay pot...

"a man will meet you carrying an earthen pitcher of
water; follow him into the house where he goes in"
(Luke 22:10; Mark 14:13.)

Hmmm.. interesting.

The Egyptians and Hebrews probably watched the sky very carefully considering how many times it hailed meteorites and the red dust turned the seas to blood and the ash caused darkness. The meteors get dragged into Earth by comets, and comets come around on a pretty regular basis. Wouldnt you want to know when one was comming back? How many cities and armys were crushed by a rain of fire? Lots. Hey, speaking of Lot..
