Michael Laitman, On Quora: “Is there any connection between Kabbalah and astrology?“
The wisdom of Kabbalah has been connected to several teachings over the course of history, but authentic Kabbalah has no connection to other teachings.
There is no astrology in Kabbalah, no divination by stars, nor any connection between Kabbalah and red strings, holy water, Tarot, mysticism or Kabbalistic meditations, even though if you look up such connections, you will find a lot written about them.
The wisdom of Kabbalah is a method for attaining no more and no less than the purpose of life while we are alive in this world: attainment of the Creator, the higher force in reality. We develop ourselves through this method in order to attain spiritual qualities and a spiritual perception that has no connection to this world’s qualities. As such, Kabbalah has no connection to stars or anything else around the person, but only to that which is inside the person.
