3 March: How Medieval Astrologers Knew What You Really Wanted
A Virtual Talk with Chris Mitchell
The twelfth century saw a huge translation movement in Western Europe, when Arabic texts were translated into Latin for the first time. The 12th-century scholar Roger of Hereford was teaching schoolkids some pretty sophisticated astrology based on these texts, including some techniques to find out what the client *really* wanted, in his book of “Intentions”. Knowing what the client’s intention in visiting the astrologer might almost be considered an early version of psychological astrology – just as a modern astrologer might draw up a consultation chart.
Chris Mitchell has a PhD from the University of Leicester on the topic of medieval astrology, is a tutor on the MA Cultural Astronomy and Astrology course at the University of Wales, and holds a diploma in Medieval Astrology from Astrologos. He has been actively involved in promoting and teaching astrology for 20 years, is on the board of the Astrological Association, and has given talks to groups and conferences in Europe and the US.
