The Bible speaks out strongly against the practice of astrology and following horoscopes. In the Old Testament, we find many passages that condemn the practice. In Deuteronomy 18:10–13, the Lord commands, "There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations, the Lord your God drives them out from before you."
In this passage, the Lord clearly prohibits the practice of "soothsaying" (seeking knowledge from supernatural sources or communicating with the dead). This would include any attempt to predict the future or seek knowledge from horoscopes, which are often based on the signs of the zodiac or astronomical positions. In addition to this passage, other biblical passages speak out against divination and astrology.
Isaiah 47:13 says, "Now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up and save you from what shall come upon you." In this passage, God condemns the practice of relying on knowledge from the stars (astrology) to try to predict the future, in contrast to relying on the Lord. The New Testament also speaks out against astrology and horoscopes.
In Galatians 5:20, it says, "Idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies... This passage is warning us against practices such as astrology and religiously following horoscopes, which can lead to idolatry when individuals put their trust in something other than the Lord.
The Bible also speaks out against those who practice or seek knowledge from astrology or horoscopes. In 2 Peter 2:1-2, it says, "But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed."
While the passage isn’t specifically referring to astrology or horoscopes, it does show us that those who practice or promote these things are leading people away from the truth of the Lord and placing their trust in something other than the Lord.
In conclusion, the Bible very clearly speaks out against astrology and horoscopes. It condemns divination and false prophets, as well as those who teach and practice such things. It is clear that the Lord does not approve of those who put their trust in anything other than Him, and therefore we should not follow horoscopes that are based on astrology or any other practice. We should put our trust in the Lord and follow the teachings in the Bible so that we may be pleasing to Him.
