(1) Read 1 Kings chapter 11. This shows what happened near the end of King Solomon's reign over the undivided kingdom. One of his own officials, Jeroboam, rebelled and became the first king of the divided nation. He reigned over the northern ten tribes (the kingdom of Israel) from 931 BC. The two southern tribes were called the kingdom of Judah and Solomon's son Rehoboam was their first king. All of this was in fulfillment of God's decree to Solomon:
"He had warned Solomon specifically about worshiping other gods, but Solomon did not listen to the Lord's command. So now the Lord said to him, 'Since you have not kept my covenant and have disobeyed my decrees, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to one of your servants. But for the sake of your father, David, I will not do this while you are still alive. I will take the kingdom away from your son. And even so, I will not take away the entire kingdom; I will let him be king of one tribe, for the sake of my servant David and for the sake of Jerusalem, my chosen city." (1 Kings 11:9-13)
(2) Read 1 Kings 22:2-4, 2 Kings 11:1-76, 2 Chronicles 22:2-12 and Ezekiel 9:7
Athaliah was the daughter of wicked Queen Jezebel and King Ahab. Athaliah married Jehoram, King Jehoshaphat's son - see 2 Kings 8:18-27 - "But Jehoram followed the example of the kings of Israel and was as wicked as King Ahab, for he had married one of Abab's daughters. Under Athiliah's influence, Jehoram instituted various false forms of worship, including worship of Baal. See 2 Chronicles 21:11.

1) Following the division of the nation “the land of Israel” was at times used to designate the northern kingdom’s territory, distinguishing it from that of Judah. (2Ch 30:24, 25; 34:1, 3-7) After the northern kingdom’s fall the name of Israel was, in effect, kept alive by Judah, the only kingdom remaining of Israel’s (Jacob’s) descendants. Therefore, it is primarily with reference to the land of the Judean kingdom and its capital Jerusalem that the expression “soil of Israel” is used by the prophet Ezekiel. (Eze 12:19, 22; 18:2; 21:2, 3) This was the geographic area that was completely desolated for 70 years from and after 607 B.C.E. (Eze 25:3) but to which a faithful remnant would be regathered.—Eze 11:17; 20:42; 37:12.
2)Like her mother Jezebel, Athaliah egged on her husband, Jehoram, to do what was bad in Jehovah’s eyes during his eight-year reign. (1Ki 21:25; 2Ch 21:4-6) And like her mother, Athaliah wantonly shed the blood of the innocent. When her wicked son Ahaziah died after a one-year reign, she killed off all the others of the royal line, except the infant Jehoash, who had been hidden by the high priest and his wife, who was Jehoash’s aunt. Thereupon Athaliah installed herself as queen for six years, c. 905-899 B.C.E. (2Ch 22:11, 12) Her sons robbed Jehovah’s temple of the holy things and offered them up to Baal.—2Ch 24:7.
When Jehoash reached seven years of age, God-fearing High Priest Jehoiada brought the lad out of secrecy and crowned him rightful heir to the throne. Hearing the tumult, Athaliah rushed to the temple and, upon seeing what was happening, cried, “Conspiracy! Conspiracy!” High Priest Jehoiada ordered her taken outside the temple grounds to be executed at the horse gate of the palace; she was perhaps the last of Ahab’s abominable house. (2Ki 11:1-20; 2Ch 22:1–23:21) How true it proved to be: “Nothing of Jehovah’s word will fall unfulfilled to the earth that Jehovah has spoken against the house of Ahab”!—2Ki 10:10, 11; 1Ki 21:20-24.

Before I came to know Christ I studied astrology very closely.
I wanted to be able to make personal charts for people and such.
At that time I truly believed it was a science. But when I came to a point where I got stuck in my studies I asked my mentor what to do in this case. If I recall it was nearly impossible to tell exactly where a "person's moon" was or even if I had the right "house". (Astrology terms.)
She told me that it entirely depends on what my spirit guide had to say about the matter!
I thought this was a science!How could a spirit guide possibly be required if this was a factual science! I quit on that principle alone, before I even knew messing with "spirit's guides" was dangerous.
But I do understand what you mean about astrology looking so accurate. I don't know why that is, but I've learned that Satan has a way of taking tiny truths, and turning them into BIG lies.
