- Below I will explain what scripture says about staying away from astrology and witchcraft, which is why all churches should instruct and warn their people to avoid these things, which is why the CC probably do have something published warning people away from this. (Scripture is given here as the root of warnings against this, so this is a partial answer only, I realize)
I will also explain why the astrology of the Magis is different than what we call astrology today.
How do we KNOW the MAGI, who are called Wise-men, were star gazers? We know because they told us in the Bible text, that they recognized that "the King of the Jews had been born because they had seen His star."
Scholars speculate that these wise men may have been from Persia, where Daniel and his friends were captive, and may have been those instructed in Jewish scripture and understanding by these men.
Astrology today involves those who are "fore"-telling the future, by connecting to those who "fell" with satan, these are fallen angels who can be malicious toward human beings, and it is from these creatures that 'foretelling the future', comes. These beings are lying spirits, and scripture strictly forbids having any connection with them, because they mislead.
Astrology today dictates that the "stars control people's lives, which is why someone 'gifted' in astrology can seemingly "fore-tell" future events in another person's life.
Churches warn and condemn this when they are aware of the source of this type of 'knowledge' and it falls into the same category as forbidden witchcraft, because witchcraft also connects people with the "fallen ones" who are a source of grief to human beings- they can communicate with people in indirect ways, they have no bodies, so cannot speak aloud.
The ASTROLOGY of the MAGI wasn't condemned, because, if you look at what the LORD said to Abraham about looking up into the stars, God Himself wrote a message about Salvation that He planned on "even before the foundations of the earth" and He wrote it in the sky and told Abraham to look at it, when the scripture says "God preached the gospel to Abraham".
“And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, in you shall all the nations be blessed” (Gal. 3.8 RSV).
The Gospel preached to Abraham! In what sense was the Gospel preached to the old patriarch, two thousand years before Christ? Jesus said of him;
“Your father Abraham rejoiced that he was to see my day; he saw it and was glad” (John 8.56 RSV).
What did Abraham back there in the middle of human history, see of the future day of Christ that gave him that happiness? We do not know all that God said to him in their hours of communion; we do have a definite statement that is the key to all God’s outworking purposes in the realm of human history;
to Abraham He said “all peoples on the earth will be blessed through you” (Gen. 12.3 NIV).
(Also, it is speculated that the MAGI had a cosmological phenomenon lead them, in the form of a star, which may have actually been a comet. Apparently, scientists have calculated that there was such a thing crossing the sky in the proximity of time when they think the Magi were looking for Jesus, from birth to approx. aged 2, according to Herod's mass murder of the innocents. http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/1991QJRAS..32..389H)
