While astrology wasn’t the main topic of the August 30th episode of History Channel’s Ancient Aliens, Hellenistic astrologer Chris Brennan was able to share briefly about the theory and background of Hellenistic astrology. The episode focuses on architectural features of ancient civilizations whose astronomical and astrological correspondences could only be perceived when viewed from high above them—where no human had the ability to go at the time. These architectural features are prominent in the civilizations where Western horoscopic astrology emerged, hence the need to situate the show’s topic within its historical context. Many props to the History Channel for inviting a well-known astrologer to offer insight on the subject!
