The History of the Zodiac

Post by colleenm » Wed Jun 08, 2022 10:04 am

Hi Folks,
Just wanted to let you know that Ken Bowser's lecture on The History of the Zodiac is now available on our site. Here is the info below with the link:

The zodiac and the first ephemerides were developed in Mesopotamia over a period of many centuries, from the second millennium B.C. to the first century A.D. These discoveries are hailed by historians of science as two of the greatest technical achievements of Antiquity.

This lecture shows how the Babylonians, through many centuries of observation and record keeping, developed the zodiac. It also shows how the discovery of ancient astronomical and astrological tablets in modern day Iraq led to a new branch of astrology—western sidereal astrology—which, in its earliest rendering, is actually the oldest. This presentation is a valuable resource for astrological scholars and all serious students of astrology.

We would love to have your feedback!

Colleen, I just realized I don't have Ken's birth data - would you be willing to share it?
I see it as of interest for Sidereal community, not merely some "my personal curiosity", so am asking about it here instead of privately.
If you want to share yours, that would also be appreciated.
(My data is posted publicly on this forum, and I otherwise don't have anything against sharing it, so if you want me to PM you with it, let me know.)

Danica, I know Ken is private with his birth data. (I thought I remembered an online interchange between the two of you about that, but I might be misremembering.)

Oh, I see - I don't recall this, but that would explain why I don't have Ken's chart.

I do get that, in this "age of information", some people perceive their birth data as a "private property" (an asset ? :) ), even if they're astrologers, and sometimes even if they happen to function publicly in the role of teacher of Astrology itself!

If that might be the case here - it'll be duly acknowledged, and I certainly won't be inquiring further.

Since the question has been for Colleen, I will leave the above post with it for herself to see and respond to - in case the described case is not the case here :), or if she may want to message me privately, or simply something entirely else (otherwise unforeseen) that may come up for us to learn in the course of open communication.
(When one is asking, they abide in openness to receive whatever the answer may be - whether it's something that answers the given question, or not - that part is not on the inquirer to be "knowing" in advance! )
