Episode 112

The third episode in a series featuring religious studies scholar Angela Voss, exploring the history and nature of astrology. I continue to question her about the nature of the supposed "correlation" between earthly and heavenly affairs if, as she has argued, astrology is not intended to have "predictive power". This leads into an expansive conversation exploring prediction, prophecy, fate, destiny and randomness, touching on failures of the New Age, a recent Papal Edict, the writings of Ptolemy, Plotinus, Thomas Aquinas and St. Augustine, natural v. judicial astrology, and Grayson Perry(!)
