- Lecture Description -
Fixed Stars: Their Mechanics, Uses and Lore
This lecture will cover the main approaches to working with fixed stars,
from the Ptolemaic projection onto the ecliptic to the dynamic movement of parans. We will discuss the lore of some of the most popular fixed stars, and propose ways to use the stars to time certain events, both magical and mundane. After attending this course, you'll be more fluent in the multi-dimensionality of fixed stars and have new strategies for
incorporating them into your practices.
