“Can astrologers be Christians?” A dear friend floored me recently by asking that question. I stared at him; and then I realized what he meant: he thought astrology was like a religion; a belief system; an ideology.
Astrology is a tool for locating oneself in time and space, like a map or a compass. It can be employed as a framework of metaphors, nuanced in describing traits or events precisely. For the spiritually-minded, astrology may provide a collection of clues, tiny signatures that attest to the mind of God; but it is NOT a religion in or of itself.
And it is incredibly USEFUL.
