Placed in a constellation Found among the Northern skies Her fables try to tempt you But come morning her light dies Zig zagging around the night Her five stars come into view But come morning her light dies As fables try to tempt you Allured by the seated queen Like an angel in disguise Her fables try to tempt you Yet come morning her light dies She’s light years away from home Praying a hero comes through But come morning her light dies While fables try to tempt you She’s been ravaged by her pride And covets your moon-struck eyes Her fables try to tempt you But come morning her light dies Old legends cannot save us But there is a LOVE that’s TRUE Watch the heavens harmonize Just as Christ makes all things new Poetry Type: Mirrored Refrain
You have advisors by the ton—your astrologers and stargazers, who try to tell you what the future holds. But they are as useless as dried grass burning in the fire. They cannot even deliver themselves! You’ll get no help from them at all. Theirs is no fire to sit beside to make you warm!Isaiah 47:13-14
He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.Job 9:9
Cassiopeia is a constellation named after a vain queen in Greek mythology. As the story goes, she was banished to the sky by a Greek god who trapped her in a throne upside down as punishment for her boastfulness and self-love.
I have always been fascinated by astronomy (the science and study of the universe) and how people throughout time have used the stars in the sky to navigate their way at night. The most famous example for Christians is the Star of Bethlehem.
In my 20’s, before becoming a Christian, I dabbled in astrology and numerology (false pseudo sciences) and other ways of seeking information about the future and trying to find meaning in my life. But I have learned that stars do not influence human behavior like some horoscopes might lead you to believe. Stars are created by God and they are not meant to be worshipped or consulted in the same way that we would go to the Creator of the universe for advise.
There is a very fine line between observing the signs and wonders in the heavens for evidence of our Creator and relying on celestial bodies and cosmic events to inform our day-to-day lives. God is our one source of truth and He is all we need to walk in our life’s purpose. The new moon cannot save us or promise us an eternal life in heaven. Only God can do that.
The heaven’s declare the glory of God and they help us literally find North, South, East and West! Did you know that the position of the stars in Cassiopeia can help you find true north because it points to Polaris, the North Star? It is visible all throughout the year. Check out this YouTube tutorial for how to find this constellation.
