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


slide from astrology meets astronomy talkAstronomers 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. Astrology meets Astronomy 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, including an optional question and answer session.

We can bring all equipment needed, but can plug into your projection and audio system if you have one. 

Travel is charged at 45p per mile from our base in Hastings to your venue and back again. If the journey will take us over 2 hours we may have to charge for an overnight stay which costs an extra £45. If our journey includes tolls and ferry charges, these will be added too.

We’re based in Hastings on the South East coast.
