Taurus Common Traits

Your Strengths:Strong, dependable and steadfast, you keep promises and finish whatever you start. You are the one people turn to, when in trouble. You are a fond of common sense and good advice. You have strong family values and generally a solid career. You are fond of luxurious items.

Your Weaknesses: You don't like new ideas and will not be pushed into adopting any. You don't trust people easily and hold grudges for a long time. You tend to overindulge in food, sex and relaxation, never getting enough of any. It would be foolhardy of anyone to cheat on you and earn your fierce wrath.

Religion & Astrology In theology or religious studies, there is the belief in a multitude of star-gods. In this regard, astrology is related to the nature religions. Ancient men assumed that nature is inhabited and governed by magical powers, demons, and gods. Each planet and sign of the zodiac is the expression of a particular god or demon. But astrology is also sometimes accepted by religions which know only one creator-god, like Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Then the many star-gods become angels and demons which are subordinated to the one God. Astrology is thus simply astronomy, or a religious understanding of the cosmos based on exact scientific calculations.

History behind Astrology - Religion Nexus Five thousand years ago, astrology and religion were connected. Iraq was called Sumer and a very sophisticated civilization flourished there. Sumer was the birthplace of writing and astrology witnessing this celestial order, believed it to be the manifestation of divinity. The Sumerians merged with a branch of Semites who were fervently practicing the cult of Astral Divinities with whom they felt connected while traveling though the desert. Astrology and religion were then indissociable. In the ancient world it was very common to see correspondence between celestial movements and happenings here on earth. That belief persists right up to our day

Astrology - Christianity

The Bible tells that men from the east called Magi searched the night sky for signs to lead them to the new born king Jesus. They observed an astronomical event ("star at its rising") and travelled to Palestine to do homage to "the newborn king." The Bible itself states in its first chapter (Gen.1.14) that the lights in the heavens were put there as "signs" and signs exist to be interpreted. In his answer to Job, God asks him if he can "bring out the signs of the zodiac in their seasons" (Job 38.32). .Many astrological symbols were already common in some currents of Judaism and flowed quite naturally into Christianity. The largest number of astrological symbols are found in the Revelation of John. Thus, the astrologically important numbers four, seven, and twelve occur in quite central passages. Right in the first chapter, seven stars are mentioned which are represented as seven angels (Rev. 1:20). The septet of stars referred in the ancient world to the seven known planets: sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn.

Vedic Astrology

Vedic Astrology or Indian Astrology or Hindu astrology, is a system that originated in ancient India, and was documented by sages in the Vedic scriptures. Vedic astrology deals with astral light patterns that are thought to determine our destiny. The basics of Vedic astrology is that all things are linked. Your karma or fortune is determined by a predestined cosmic design. You are a soul incarnating in a body at a very specific time and place, and your life is a reflection of the greater whole into which you are born. Vedic Astrology has six main branches: Astronomy, Mathematics, Birth Charts, Mundane Predictions, Auspicious Timings, and Omens

Astrology / Religion- quotes

Islam and Astrology

Islam and Astrology
We find that in the Holy Quran, in several verses, Almighty has asked and encouraged mankind to look into and ponder over the objects of his creation, including the heaven, the stars and the Moon, in orders the understand his signs and thereby his supreme might, glory and greatness. "And the Sun runneth on unto a resting place for him .That is the measuring of the mighty, the wise. And for the Moon, we have appointed mansions till she returns like an old shrivelled palm leaf. It is not for the sun to overtake the Moon, nor doth the nights outstrips the day. They float each in an orbit." (Surah X X X VI. verse 38,39,and 40). At another place Allah says, "He is who appointed the Sun a splendor and the Moon a light and measured for her stages that he might know the number of the years, and the reckoning.

Buddhism- Astrology

Buddhism and Astrology
Lord Buddha's doctrines of karma and rebirth, flowed not only into the general theosophical teaching but also into esoteric astrology. The doctrine of karma and rebirth means that a person's character and his experiences are determined by the sum of his deeds in past lives. The horoscope thus informs the astrologer about this karma or about the character and the resulting tasks in life. "Karmic horoscope analysis," which operates with special methods and which is offered today by some astrologers has its roots in the beliefs of Buddhism.
