The History of the Zodiac

Post by colleenm » Wed Jun 08, 2022 10:04 am

Hi Folks,
Just wanted to let you know that Ken Bowser's lecture on The History of the Zodiac is now available on our site. Here is the info below with the link:

The zodiac and the first ephemerides were developed in Mesopotamia over a period of many centuries, from the second millennium B.C. to the first century A.D. These discoveries are hailed by historians of science as two of the greatest technical achievements of Antiquity.

This lecture shows how the Babylonians, through many centuries of observation and record keeping, developed the zodiac. It also shows how the discovery of ancient astronomical and astrological tablets in modern day Iraq led to a new branch of astrology—western sidereal astrology—which, in its earliest rendering, is actually the oldest. This presentation is a valuable resource for astrological scholars and all serious students of astrology. ... ereal-page

We would love to have your feedback!
