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, including an optional question and answer session.
£50 for up to one hour
£90 for up to two hours
We can bring all equipment needed, but can plug into your projection and audio system if you have one.
TRAVEL & OVERNIGHT STAY
Travel is free within a 20 mile radius of Hastings, and charged at 45p per mile if you need us to travel further. And if the journey will take over 2 hours, we may have to charge for an overnight stay which costs an extra £40. If our journey includes tolls and ferry charges, these will be added too.
Lectures and talks can take place anywhere that can accommodate a projector and screen, plus enough chairs for the audience to sit comfortably (a classroom or village hall will do just fine).
