I think it should be mentioned that astrology as a method of magic or fortune-telling is strictly forbidden for Christians; however, as a more general system of thinking about the heavens, the Church fathers tended to accept aspects of it. The main objection was to any notion that our fates are determined by the planets and stars, but they accepted that the heavenly bodies could influence events on earth in some way.
The Fathers believe heavenly bodies could influence events on earth? Who? Cite a specific passage.
St. Ephraim the Syrian:
"Regard not spells and divinations, for that is communion with Satan."( Homily on Admonition and Repentance).
St. Cyril of Jerusalem:
"Also give heed neither to observations of the stars nor auguries, nor omens, nor to the fabulous divinations of the Greeks. Witchcraft, and enchantment, and the wicked practices of necromancy, admit not even to a hearing."
"The watching of birds, divination, omens, or amulets, or charms written on leaves, sorceries, or other evil arts, and all such things, are services of the devil; therefore shun them." (Catechetical Lectures).
