Today's Horoscope For Monday, December 25, 2017 For Each Zodiac Sign

A brief explanation of astrology's connection to Christmas.

Your daily horoscopes are here, astrology lovers! Today, we have a Moon in Pisces and the Sun is in Capricorn.

Capricorn is the symbol of a goat, and it's hard not to think about the connection goats have to Christmas. Although you may not be religious, there's a good chance that you or someone you know celebrates Christmas.

Christmas has its roots in both pagan and Christian religion. For Christians, it's a time to celebrate the gift of life through Jesus who would become the final sacrifice to end the practice of offering up an animal sacrifice for sin. There's a story behind this that stems from Judaism, and it involves a father, a son, and a goat. 

Abraham, the father of Judaism had a son named Isaac. The story in the book of Genesis states that God asked Abraham to sacrifice his only son to prove his love.

Abraham took his son and set him on an altar and just when he was about to follow through on God's command, he was told by God not to do it. The story then says that a goat was found in a thicket by Abraham and it took the place of Isaac.

This became the living metaphor for a final messiah for both non-Jew and Jew, according to the Bible.

Jesus was discovered by Magi, 3 wise men. These three wise men followed a star that appeared in the sky and used the star to locate his place of birth.

The wise men were astrologers, and like many who study astrology today, they sought answers, signs, and spiritual meaning by analyzing the stars and the shifting of planets to discern how God communicated to people on Earth through them.

Seven years ago, a narrative written by the Magi themselves telling of their journey was translated and in the text, we find out that they were descendants of Adam and Eve's third son, Seth.

What does this mean for your zodiac sign according to astrology?

Their people lived in the East, and they practiced their religious rituals, one of which was astrology. In their expectation, they found the star that led them to Jesus at the time of Christ's birth.

Some people may say that there's really no validity to studying astrology, but this valuable piece of how knowledge of celestial events and their meanings prove that there's value that can benefit us today.
