Shakespeare and Astrology by Priscilla Costello

Shakespeare’s works profoundly affect us because of the holistic worldview they reflect, one that definitely includes astrology. Prescilla Costello will explore Shakespeare’s use of astrological symbolism through obvious allusions to the Sun, Moon, stars, planets, zodiacal signs, comets, and eclipses; through character types related to four particular planets – ‘theory of the humours- ; and, most amazing, through the resonance between specific plays and particular signs and their planetary rulers.
