The History of Western Astrology

This month's meeting will feature a lecture by Chris Brennan on the history of astrology, from its origins in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt through to the present day. 

Lecture Description 

In this lecture we will cover the history of western astrology, starting in Mesopotamia and Egypt around 4000 years ago, and then working our way through the subsequent Hellenistic, Medieval, Renaissance, and Modern traditions. Attendees will learn how some of the core techniques of western astrology were developed, as well as the way in which astrology has grown and changed over the centuries. At the end of the lecture there will be time for a question and answer session, so that people can inquire about specific points that they are curious about. 

Lecture Fee

The fee for attending the lecture is $5.

If you plan on attending please RSVP, since we will be bringing handouts and we need to know how many to bring.

Length of the Meeting

The meeting will start at 3:00 PM, and the lecture itself will probably go until about 4:30, with time for questions and discussions until about 5:00 PM. After that people are free to hang out and socialize in the cafe.

Note that the Mercury Cafe also serves brunch earlier in the day, so if anyone wants to come early, around 1:00 PM, there will probably be some other astrologers there having brunch.

Library Books

Just a reminder that the Denver Astrology Group now has a small library, and you can check books out from it at each meeting.

It is only $10 a year to sign up for the library, and you can check out 1 book at each meeting, and then you will have to return it at the next meeting the following month.

See our website for a complete catalog of all of the books currently available in the library: http://www.denverastrologygroup.com/library/holdings/

If you would like us to bring a book to the meeting for you to check out then just send an email to Chris at: [masked]

We will also be bringing a box of some of the best books from the library with us to the meeting, for those of you who would like to browse through them in person.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
