The stars have inspired humankind to philosphize and contemplate their destiny for millennia, and this rich history has been reflected through a vast array of artwork since the practice of astrology began. But what is astrology? Is it an art form, a science, psychology, divination or mere hocus pocus?
Join us as we give a presentation on how our view of the cosmos has shaped our views of astrology, and how this has been reflected through the arts. We will discuss how astrology, the language of the stars, became separated from astronomy, the measurement of the stars, reflect on the symbols and mythologies interwoven with astrology and examine some works of art such as Botticelli’s Primavera to reveal their deeper meaning.
Following the presentation, you are invited to create a collage based on the astrological images associated with your sun sign. All materials will be provided however please feel free to bring along any favourite images if you wish.
