I don't think that these "biblical references" to astrology are accurate. The Bible clearly condemns astrology. MountainDew 23:27, 7 April 2007 (EDT)

Where? --Tetra 18:12, 28 May 2007 (EDT)
"Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries, which you have labored at since childhood. Perhaps you will succeed, perhaps you will cause terror. All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you. Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. Here are no coals to warm anyone; here is no fire to sit by. That is all they can do for you - these you have labored with and trafficked with since childhood. Each of them goes on in his error; there is not one that can save you. (Isaiah 47:12-15) Fox 18:17, 28 May 2007 (EDT)
"Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish. (Jeremiah 27:9-10) Fox 18:19, 28 May 2007 (EDT)

Reagan

President Reagan did more than 'dabble' in astrology, but when I included that, it was deleted because I cited a source other than Reagan's own words. Anyone have any thoughts on the matter? Maestro 23:20, 20 December 2007 (EST)

You know our policy -- no gossip. Someone making claims about a person, without proof, and after a person is no longer able to defend themselves are not a part of what we are about. We're not into the "Mommy Dearest" motif. Learn together 00:48, 21 December 2007 (EST)
For the record, that quote was made back when Reagan was still president. If the president used stars and numbers to direct the country (and this wasn't mere tabloid lies), that's hardly gossip. But I'll let it drop. Maestro 10:40, 21 December 2007 (EST)

Ophiuchus

Just a random bit of knowledge: The zodiac, Ophiuchus, is also a "sun sign", but is not considered an astrological sign. By some, Ophiuchus is the sign for the 13th month in the lunar calendar.

I learned most of this back in 7th grade, after seeing Ophiuchus in a game and wondered, "wait! There's 13 lunar months?" --ɹǝlƃǝız ɹǝdoʇsıɹɥɔ 15:07, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
