Pearl of Wisdom

when an atheist asked him about the science of the stars [i.e. astrology] said, 'It is a science whose benefits are few and whose harms are many... an astrologer contradicts Allah in His knowledge, claiming he is refuting Allah in His fate over His creation.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
It can be understood from these traditions that the science of stars that is prohibited is not astronomy that exists in this present time, but rather it is the study of stars that looks into the effect of stars on the fate of a person and foretelling future events through observing the planets in that they themselves effect human beings.
