Signs of the zodiac analysed – Isabelle M. Pagan
The interest in Astrology has been growing dramatically in recent ye rs, with increasing numbers of people looking into the more es teric side of this age-old science. Alongside this astrological re aissance has been the birth and development of space exploration and technology over two decades, and although not directly linked, these two events are indications of our primeval fascination with the stars, and of our quest to understand to what extent our lives are influenced by them.
The Ancient World had a deep knowledge and reverence for the energies of the cosmos, and these were personified in the gods and heroes of mythology. In this book each sign of the Zodiac and its ruling planet are dealt with against a background of several mytho-loaies: Hindu. Egyptian, Judaic-Christian, and in particular those of the Greeks and Romans. The qualities of each native sign are described from Aries through to Pisces, and brought vividly to life with references to famous characters within the pages of world literature, and in the lives of writers and other personages.
This uniquely perceptive book by Isabelle Pagan was formerly published under the title, From Pioneer to Poet, and is acknowledged as one of the best introductions to Astrology.
