Golden Calf

Why did Aaron make a golden image to be worshipped in the form of a calf?

Egyptians made their gods based upon which constellation they were under at that time.  That’s why in Egypt some gods are in the image of lions, calves, etc.  In the time of the Exodus they were under the sign of Taurus (the bull).

Exodus 32:1, 4, 8
And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

God created the stars and constellations perfectly, but since the fall of man His whole creation is out of whack because of sin.  It is said that the Gospel (of Jesus Christ) is pictured in the stars.  Astrology is a counterfeit of the real meaning of the constellations in the heavens.  Every one of them has some type of significance.
