World Astrology travels through the ancient world, tracing the origins of modern astrology. Greece, Rome, Mesopotamia and India all had system with which to read the stars, and the discovery of a 4th Century Chinese star-map shows that they had been star gazing for centuries. Peter Marshall examines both Western and Eastern astrology, explaining how each culture developed a unique way of interpreting the stars, while illuminating their common ground. From the Chinese I Ching and Feng Shui, to the astrological implications of Plato's philosophy; from Ptolemy's Tetrabiblios to The Book of Hours, Peter Marshall analyses the different astrological methods and beliefs to build a picture of a much misunderstood art, along the way asking serious questions about the nature of astrology. How does astrology relate to the modern world? Is it science or superstition? Does it deny free will? Is the final version of your life in your hands? Brilliantly researched and utterly captivating, World Astrology is the definitive history of a discipline that has intrigued humanity for millennia.
