Astrology : What's Really in the Stars
by J. V. Stewart




Overview -
In this meticulously researched work, Stewart traces the development of astrology from the nomads who settled in lower Mesopotamia to Ptolemy in Hellenistic Egypt, upon whose Tetrabiblos, with surprisingly little modification, Western astrology is based. Getting as close as possible to the original source material, Stewart includes numerous translations of ancient texts as well as photographs and illustrations throughout. By providing pertinent historical information, he shows how errors and discrepancies in horoscopic astrology keep popping up. Astrology is enjoying a resurgence today, not only as a result of mystical and New Age fads that ebb and flow over the years, but also because of a superabundance of easily accessible astrological material that feeds the public's endless need to transcend the present and see into the future. Astrology: What's Really in the Stars will enable readers to discern whether there is any merit to these ancient beliefs.
