George, Demetra – Hermetic Medical Astrology

The earliest Hermetic texts that began to emerge from Egypt around the second century BCE are astrological; and of those, the majority of them united astrology and medicine. This talk will discuss the Hermetic philosophy that provided a foundation for the origin of medical astrology, and examples from astro-medical texts dating to the early centuries CE which Demetra has translated and that illustrate the intimate connection between the soul of the cosmos and the human body.
