Historical Happy Hour: Books on Medical Astrology
Join us for a VIRTUAL Historical Happy Hour!
About this Event:
Astrology, described the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means, has evolved into a cultural phenomenon, informing people on their days, weeks, months, and years based on the positions of the planets and the stars.
Our Historical Happy Hour will discuss examples and images pulled from materials straight from the stacks of our Historical Medical Library.
