Astrology & Astronomy

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Learn about the shared history of these two endeavors.

For most of human history, astrology and astronomy were one subject. Still today, astrologers’ interpretations are affected by the discoveries of modern astronomy.

Join folklorist and astrologer Emily Ridout to learn how these two disciplines traveled together through time and space, bringing humanity the stories and understandings we have today.

Emily Ridout is a professional folklorist, yogi, and astrologer. She holds an M.A. in Folklore from the University of Oregon and is a member of the American Folklore Society.
