Anthology: Book One
Vettius Valens of Antioch (120-175 C.E.)
Have you ever wished you could go back to ancient times? Vettius Valens lived over 2000 years ago, and wrote extensively on the art of reading astrological charts. Not only could Valens actually see the night sky, he also busied himself reading the texts of the ancients before his time. Throughout his nine book Anthology, Valens passes on many concepts he has synthesized from his studies, including a variety of examples from his collection. This book is highly unique to read, as it is translated from ancient Greek into modern English so the reader can literally fall into the mind of an ancient astrologer.

The Nature of the Wandering Stars
The Nature of the Twelve Constellations
The Star Boundaries within Each Constellation
The Hour of Birth

"Gehrz breathes delicate new life into this ancient text, unfolding the threads of Porphyry's thoughts anew. Fundamental questions for astrology--When does the soul move into the body? Where does the soul come from? -- are considered methodically from myriad angles and potentials. This text is an enlivening read for anyone exploring the roots of astrology from historical, philosophical, and ontological perspectives."
