The Chinese created horoscopes, daily predictions based on the year of an individual's birth. In this lesson plan, students will learn about the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. In the introductory lesson, they will see how animals are often used as symbols. In the second lesson, they will hear one of several versions of how the 12 animals were chosen and then focus on a few of the animals and see how they are used as symbols of certain human characteristics.
The lessons also explore other facets of the Chinese zodiac. This lesson plan, intended for students in grades K cites subject areas, time required, and skills developed; provides an introduction; presents learning objectives; poses guiding questions; gives tips for teachers preparing to teach the lesson; suggests and delineates four classroom activities; offers suggestions for extending the lesson; lists selected Web resources; and addresses standards alignment. There are no reviews yet. How does God feel about anyone following astrology or horoscopes?
Following astrology is not new. This practice has been around for thousands of years. Its roots are tied to the calendar and seasons and have almost always been culturally and politically acceptable. In the 20th century, the practice and use of astrology has exploded and sadly, even among professing Christians. At the roots of astrology is a deep human desire to know the future and to explain the meaning and purpose of human life. Even the ancient Babylonians practiced astrology as far back as BC. The Babylonians used astrology as part of a divination or predicting of the future. It was believed that the gods presented themselves by their constellations and planets.
Astrology has been practiced by almost every culture known to mankind and still is to this very day. It has been practice by politicians, actors, bankers, and cuts across almost every segment of society. There is even an American Association of Astrology as well as countless other groups and clubs dedicated to divining the future.
Billions of people worldwide check their horoscopes each and every day, and yes, even followers of Christ. Before I was saved I did too. I was born under the sign of Sagittarius and I used to look at what the daily horoscopes said that was predicted for me every day. I could not have been more wrong. The problem with horoscopes is that they are all so general that they could apply to almost anyone born at any time of the year but I still believed that there was some relevance to them. Even today I hear people ask what sign they are with the intent of finding out what type of person they are or if a couple are compatible or not.
Horoscopes are believed to have originated with the ancient Greeks.
The Biblical Calendar vs. The Chinese Zodiac Calendar
And people today still believe that. The different signs are thought to be indicators of what a person is like. The problem with this is that it turns into a kind of fatalism. What does God say about horoscopes, astrology, predicting the future or trying to communicate with the dead?
Plenty, but I have pared down to just using a few Scriptures to see how God feels about such satanic practices.
Holy Spirit Study Centre - Publications - China Bridge
And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God, for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune-tellers and to diviners. But as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do this.
How clear is that!? God has not allowed us to do this. It is an abomination to God. That is, He detests it.
Jesus Christ and Chinese Astrology
This verse deals specifically with trying to divine the future by using the stars, the moon, or the heavens constellations. Here God condemns fortune tellers. God condemns the use of astrology and horoscopes for many reasons. For one thing, God alone knows the future. We have no business trying to divine what God has not clearly revealed in His Word. He has revealed His will to us in the Word of God the Bible. We have no business in trying to divine or predict the unknown future. Christians are treading on dangerous ground if they are reading and following horoscopes or astrology.
Sadly I know of several professing Christians who do this. How seriously does God take it when we use anything or anyone that tries to communicate with the dead, predict the future, or seek counsel from anyone else but God? Here is a direct warning, not from me, but from the Word of God. He broke faith with the Lord in that he did not keep the command of the Lord, and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance. He did not seek guidance from the Lord.
Therefore the Lord put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse. God will not compromise with sin and the divination of the future by use of astrology or horoscopes makes Him righteously angry. What Is Numerology. All rights reserved worldwide.

Hi, I started to study Astrology at the age of 14 when I was robbed of self — out of touch with self through abuse all my life. I just did not know myself. I began to study my very own chart to see with my eyes what in the world is going on. But i want to say to most of you here that the news paper or magazine horoscopes will hardly ever be accurate because the writer is writing without knowing who you are in terms of your chart- birth time I did not study it to try and find predictions as any real Astrologer will honestly tell you that Astrology does NOT predict — it is only a forecast like a weather forecast.
And finally i have to say too, not anyone can understand or be an Astrologer. It takes a certain sort to know what it really is. Is is only a science. There should be no such thing as Horoscopes in the magazines.

It is a shame that it has been used and presented in such a way. Astrology takes years of study to only see the most simplest reason as to how it works… It is a correlation. You have to really know what i mean by correlation. To understand the secret on correlation between earth and planetary motion it takes a certain insight.
The planets have NO correlation with Heaven — Only earth. To everything there is a Season and a Time to every Purpose under Heaven. Astrology is tapping into that Time. A place not anyone can do or understand. So no matter if you are a Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, ect ect it does not matter as the SUN was only transiting that constellation, but here we are only speaking of the sun transit and not the transits of all the other planets.
Astrologers need to look up this in order to accurately observe your chart. As far as those Psychic people combining Astrology with Tarot cards — that is a disgrace. I do not recommend anyone believe the Tarot or the horoscopes in the News Paper. Hello Amber. We cannot rationalize using astrology so to use it in your life is doing just what God forbids.

I agree, with you Amber. Our Real state of being is the Cosmic-Mind and not the Body. Hello Mr. You are taking Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit and making them into your own image or a god that fits your thinking, so unless you repent from this sin and dabbling in astrology, you will not inherit the kingdom of God. I equally share in your thoughts Mr Amber, as a matter of facts, I study Numbers or part of Numerology which also share views with Astrology.
Hello Walebash. The Bible is clear. You cannot rationalize it away. Please repent of this. Anyway, Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter, which is in charge of religious and spiritual teachings and beliefs. I hope I have enlightened you, my brother. Friend…please distance yourself from these pagan or satanic things.
God is not pleased. The Bible condemns those who practice such things.
