It's forbidden to learn Torah for idolatry (working for stars and horoscopes )
What is Torah, what is idolatry (working for stars and horoscopes), and why is it forbidden for those involved in idolatry to study Torah?
Torah is the way of Light that spreads in the Kelim (vessels) according to the law of equivalence of form, according to the relation between the Light and the vessel via the Masach (screen). Studying the Torah is the manner of expansion of the Lights in the corrected vessels, within the corrected desire to receive with the intention of the sake of bestowal, in order to perform a real action of bestowal.
Idolatry (working for stars and horoscopes) is called whoever is "curved," not directed straight to the Light, bowing to his ego and thus he is not able to receive the Upper Light and doesn't have the vessels to study the Torah. Thus it is written that for those who work for stars and horoscopes it is forbidden to study Torah, since "forbidden" in spirituality means "impossible."
