Fated Sky: Astrology in History
Benson Bobrick (au)
Astrology is the oldest of the occult sciences & is also the origin of science itself. Astronomy, math., & other disciplines arose in part to make possible the calculations necessary in casting horoscopes. For 5,000 years, the influence of the stars has been viewed as shaping the destiny of human affairs. This book reveals how modern astrology is utterly different from the doctrine of the stars that won the respect & allegiance of the greatest thinkers, scientists, & writers of an earlier day. The great astronomers of the scientific revolution -- Copernicus, Brahe, Kepler -- were adherents, & Newton’s appetite for math. was first whetted by an astrological text. “A comprehensive account of astrology & its enduring influence on history.” B&W illustrations.
