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

Instructor: Carol Tebbs, MA
DATE: April 16, 2018
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.

The author of The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri, employs the astrological zodiacal wheel in his work and refers to the zodiac as "the twelve-toothed cogwheel" (Purgatorio, Canto IV, v. 64). Dante mentions that his realization of having strayed from the true way came in his thirty-fifth year as "the sun was climbing Aries" (Inferno, Canto I, vv. 37-39).

My article revolves around the position of Pluto in Mary Shelley's chart and its powerful impact on the events in her life and her works - Chrisine Ferraro

Born of philosopher and political writer William Godwin and famed feminist Mary Wollstonecraft (author of The Vindication of the Rights of Woman in 1792), Mary Shelley's early environment provided fertile ground for the growth of her intellectual and literary tendencies. The loss of her mother when she was only 11 days old was the first of many indicators that crisis, transformation, and revolution were going to be a major theme in her life.

Over 4000 years ago, nomads sprung from the soil of northeastern Europe and entered the Indus Valley of ancient India. They called themselves Aryans, or noble ones, and the religion they brought with them comprised the first practice of Hinduism. The centerpiece of Aryan religion was a fire sacrifice to the gods performed by priests specially trained to chant sacred hymns. The hymns themselves were known as Vedas or sacred knowledge. The Vedas are the scriptural bedrock of the Hindu tradition.
