Vidaru uses his position as court astrologer to try to manipulate King Hassar into making Colette marry him so as to gain control of Nahudiís oil reserves for his own enrichment. Astrology is a highly respected "science" in some circles, especially in the East. However, those who place their trust in astrology attempt to understand the future from signs in creation rather than relying on the Creator to guide them through life, and they are as likely to be duped by liars like Vidaru as King Hassar was. Christians have no need of superstitious aids like astrology; we are to cast all our cares on Christ, who alone knows the future and can handle it far better than we can. "The righteous will live by faith" (Habakkuk 2:4; see also Hebrews 11).
