Trash Astrology: The History of Pop Astrology in America from Colonial to Modern Times

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We roll our eyes at sun sign columns, Sextrology, and Kabbalascopes but these are more than necessary evils. This lecture focuses on astrological literature that was produced for the mass market rather than for “serious” astrologers. It traces the history of Astrology in America from Era Pater to Zolar to Linda Goodman to 21st century apps. Trash astrology not only helped popularize psychology, Eastern thought, and feminism in America, it kept Astrology from becoming extinct.
