Most people today know their "star-sign", but few know much of the system of thought which relates human destiny to the stars, or of its origins. Winner of the 1993 Routledge Ancient History Prize, this book reveals the importance of astrology in ancient thought, morals, politics and daily life.
An account of astrology from its beginnings in Mesopotamia, focusing on the Greco-Roman world, Ancient Astrology examines the theoretical development and changing social and political role of astrology.
