Discussion on Foundational Concepts in Hellenistic Astrology

  • Jul 11, 2009 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This meeting will focus on a recent translation of an astrological text from the 3rd century that was written by the Neoplatonic philosopher and astrologer Porphyry of Tyre. This text, known as the Introduction, was recently translated from ancient Greek into English by Andrea Gehrz, and it defines important astrological concepts from the Hellenistic tradition of astrology. While many of the concepts contained in the text are precursors to concepts still used in modern astrology, there are also a number of important ideas and techniques that are somewhat foreign to contemporary astrological practice. Join us to read and discuss selected passages from the forthcoming translation of this text, and learn how these concepts can be put into useful practice today. ---------------------------------

    Thanks, Chris & Leisa (and to Andrea for the translation) - this was extremely useful foundational concepts that will certainly enrich my readings. I will be doing my homework!

    It was a great contribution by Brennan to chart interpretation. I learned to look at what the planets are actually doing to each other and what's done to them.
