Chaldean Astrology

Astrological Dictionary

Astrology attributed to the Chaldean priests, based on the finding of cuneiform tablets dated C670 BC which reported astrological information in the court of King Ashurbanipal. They regarded the world as eternal, with no beginning or end, and the Sun, Moon, and planets as interpreters by which human beings might know and execute the will of God. Upon considering the regularity of the motions of the celestial bodies, they inferred that such objects were either intelligent beings or were controlled by some guiding intelligence. This belief led to Sabianism, the worship of the host of heaven (Sun, Moon, and Stars), which originated in the Arabian kingdom of Saba (Sheba). The heavenly host wwas not worshipped as God (whom they regarded as far above the level of mundane concern), but as ambassadors or mediators between God and humanity.
