Astro-Mythology is the oldest "inter-disciplinary" study. Before the invention of writing, and long before modern science divided human experience into "fact" and "myth," all knowledge was recorded in one unified script - the patterns and cycles of the stars and planets. The ancients could look in one place (the night sky) to find an extensive encyclopedia of human experience. The keys to science, mathematics, psychology, philosophy, spiritual teaching, the alphabet, the calendar, and astrology - all were contained in the mythology of star lore. With the development of modern science, human knowledge has been divided into separate categories, and star legends have been labeled as superstitious, quaint, outdated folktales. The purpose of this book is to remind us that the ancient traditions of astro-mythology are still living, eternally "writ in the stars." Astro-Mythology is more than a collection of entertaining and instructive stories of the gods we call planets and their adventures in the celestial lands we know as the signs of the Zodiac. Directions are also given on how to use astro-mythology to interpret birth charts and discover personal myths.
"Taking us on a cross-cultural journey to the past, Valerie Vaughan brings the ancient legends back to life, leaving us with no doubt about where the basis of astrological symbolism really lies." Ronnie Gale Dreyer, author of Vedic Astrology and Venus: The Evolution of the Goddess and Her Planet.
