Joe Polise – The Stellar Code of the Watchers

The four "Royal Stars of Persia," also called the Watchers, (Aldebaran, Regulus, Antares, and Fomalhaut), are also related to the zodiac's fixed signs. This class is a look at this stellar motif throughout history. The scope of their role in astrology, religion, and mythology is traced back through time through primary source perspectives, specifically the Zoroastrian creation myth the Bundahish, the Judeo-Christian Book of Enoch, and others. This lecture also highlights the role of the Royal Stars in astrological tradition. The themes of each star shine through selected charts.
