What is Astrology and is it for Christians?

"[Astrology] is essentially the same as astromancy, divination by stars." - Universal Standard Encyclopedia, 1955, Vol. 2, p. 471.

"as•trol•o•gy .... divination that treats of the supposed influences of the stars upon human affairs and of foretelling terrestrial events by their positions and aspects" - Webster's Third New International Dictionary, 1962, Merriam-Webster.

Divination is condemned in scripture:

"There shall not be found among you any one who...practices divination.... For whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD [Jehovah]" - Deut. 18:10-12, RSV. Cf. Is. 47:10-13.

God strictly forbade his people to worship “a form like anything that is in the heavens above.” (Ex. 20:3, 4)
