Bible Astrology

…The fundamental principles of astrology are explicitly stated in Holy Writ. The astrological point of view is implied in much of the Biblical teaching. Passage after passage of both Testaments is unintelligible unless one uses the key of astrology to unlock their meaning.

The 14th verse of the first chapter of Genesis speaks of the lights of heaven as being for signs, and the Hebrew original shows clearly that these signs are more than mere indicators of time-periods. They mark out the destiny of man.

The 19th Psalm begins: The heavens declare the glory of God.” And the fourth verse, in the Authorized Version, is translated: “Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.” A better rendering, truer to the spirit of the original Hebrew, would be: “Their rule extends through all the earth, and their commands to the end of the world. That is to say, the rule or order of the heavenly spaces permeates the entire field of terrestrial activity. This is the first premise of astrology. Furthermore, many Rabbinical interpreters tell us that the noun translated “line” in the King James Version, which I have rendered rule signifies the power, running throughout the whole universe, which gives shape and form to things.

For the occultist who has had the benefit of acquaintance with the Rosicrucian tradition, the sentence, “The heavens declare the glory of God,” has special meaning, because the total value of its words in Hebrew is 888, the number of the Greek name Iesous, Jesus, and the Hebrew words, Jehovah Tzabaoth, ha-Messhiah, “Jehovah of hosts, the Messiah.”…

The twelve tribes of Israel are also the representatives of the twelve signs of the zodiac, though there has been much confusion as to the correct arrangement of the signs in relation to the tribes. Thus the stones in the high priest’s breastplate must also be related to the signs of the zodiac. And so must the gates and foundations of the New Jerusalem described in the Book of Revelation…

The 20th verse of the 5th chapter of Judges gives us a clear, definite statement, about which there can be no question. It says: The stars in their courses fought against Sisera. Here the noun translated “courses” is that which in later Hebrew literature invariable designates the twelve signs of the zodiac. The same noun is used in Proverbs 16:17 to indicate the course of human destiny, in the sentence: The highway of the upright is to depart from evil, where the noun translated highway is Masloth, the same as that translated courses in the quotation from Judges…
