“Astrology got it right, what’s wrong with the rest of the world?”

TIME:  1:00 - 3:00 pm PDT

Literature has long been the vehicle to establish and maintain cultural identity through stories of origin, heroes and history. These stories in time becomes mythology or even codified sacred literature.

“Astrology got it right, what’s wrong with the rest of the world?” quipped a well-known astrologer when discussing the connection between sacred literature and the common phrase, “As above, so below." This has been a phrase understood by every astrologer from ancient to modern times. Indeed, the concept has roots in much of the world’s sacred literature.

This 5-week course explores the belief that the firmament has a correlation to conditions on earth and man through passages from the Jewish Torah, the Christian New Testament and the Islamic Koran. Each week students will explore the astrology references in the sacred literature and explore the related arguments for natural science versus support for astrology and/or refutation of it.
