A free webinar given for Kepler College on the 26th March 2016, addressing various functions and uses of astrology in seventeenth-century England.
Seventeenth-century England was tumultuous, fraught with Civil Wars, Revolution, and Restoration. The stars’ influence was traced in all aspects of life: from planting crops, to political propaganda, to medical care and what might be considered early modern parallels with modern guidance counselling. This workshop will focus on three main areas of astrological analysis and action: environmental, political, and socio-economic contexts.
