FROM FATE TO FREE WILL:
A Fast & Furious History of Astrology
with NADIYA SHAH
This lively one-hour talk will explore the historical twists and turns that led astrology to continually reinvent itself as a culturally relevant practice, even as culture continues to change. How and why did we go from what once was thought of as a map of a predetermined life to the 'blueprint of the psyche' it is for many today? Plato, Ibn'Arabi, Ficino, Alan Leo, Rudhyar, Carl Jung and Patrick Curry are just some of the thinkers we will explore to understand the forces that caused astrology to evolve as it has and how astrology remains a significant – if quiet – philosophical assertion in our world today.
