The stars’ influence have been traced in all aspects of life: from planting crops, to political propaganda, to medical care and guidance counselling.
In investigating pre-modern astrology, this talk will explore fascinating historical perspectives on the nature of time, meaning and human life, as well as offering a variety of practical tips and techniques on working and improving one’s astrological magic and ritual.

We will draw on primary sources – from one page pamphlets, stately astrological handbooks, treatises of occult philosophy, and grimoires and working notebooks of village wizards and aristocratic magi. This talk will introduce you to the early modern contexts surrounding astrology during one of its major historical zeniths.
