How could the wise men or magi from the East have seen Jesus' birth from a star if astrology is evil?

Does this condone the practice of looking to the stars for prophetic direction?

Matthew 2:1 - 10

ESV - 1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem. 2 Saying, "Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.

Adding to Mr Maas' comment while it states in the bible we are not to inquire of these sources for future things they do exist! The Lord desires us to grow in trust for Him by faith that all things work for his glory! If we inquire of this knowledge we rob ourselves of this awesome blessing and suffer the consequences of our sin even though we may seek and receive His loving forgiveness.
