This talk explains the origins and history of these once entwined subjects and reveals the story behind their divergence.

Astronomers are sometimes quick to distance themselves from astrology, but why? At Creative Space, we like to deal with this often-difficult subject with a wide open mind. The talk looks at the common roots of astrology and astronomy, their history and etymology, and the importance of the zodiacal constellations, together with cultural influences on these two most fascinating subjects.

This general interest talk is suitable for just about anyone, from clubs and school groups, to astronomy events and science festivals. It’s also perfect for non-astro events as it requires no prior knowledge of the subject.

This engaging talk lasts up to an hour, followed by an optional question and answer session. To find out more, or to discuss availability, drop us an email or give us a ring on 01424 420968.
