A Brief History of Ancient Astrology explores the theory and practice of astrology from Babylon to Ancient Greece and Rome and its cultural and political impact on ancient societies.
  • Discusses the union between early astrology and astronomy, in contrast to the modern dichotomy between science and superstition.
  • Explains the ancient understanding of the zodiac and its twelve signs, the seven planets, and the fixed circle of 'places' against which the signs and planets revolve.
  • Demonstrates how to construct and interpret a horoscope in the ancient manner, using original ancient horoscopes and handbooks.
  • Considers the relevance of ancient astrology today.
