Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 29 September 2013
I've got and read both of Nicholas' books on the history of Astrology and I love both of them equally.

Nick has covered in this first book the beginnings of Western astrology, as in what we know as Astrology in our end of the world, as opposed to India or the far east.

He begins with Stone Age man and why he might have had an interest in the cosmos.....Nick makes the very valid point, why wouldn't he have been interested....and how we have (mostly) lost our connection, not only with the divine, but the wonders of what lies above us, if only we'd look....

In this volume he covers the Mesopotamians, Assyrians, Persians...travels through Egypt, gets info on the Hebrews and Greeks, including the Hellenistic period, onto Rome, then the flowering of Christianity.

It's all fascinating stuff and I read through it in a total rush, then spent a few months going back over it again, it was SO interesting.....

....but then I would say that as a professional astrologer and author....
