What is astrology? Is it the superstitious artifact of ancient civilizations? A science? An art? A philosophy? Is it the ubiquitous sun sign column serving up a daily dose of destiny? How are we to define it? What is its basis? Most importantly, does astrology have value and meaning in a contemporary setting? These are some of the questions posed to students over the course of the semester. This lecture is about what their answers taught me about astrology's value in an academic setting.
