arabic astrologersThe so-called “Arabic Parts” date from the earliest times of ancient astrology and may be Egyptian in origin. To the Greeks they were known as lots. This lecture discusses some of the most important of these including the Lot of Fortune and the Lot of Spirit, and the seven basic lots associated with each of the seven classical planets. It turns out that their most ancient use is quite different from that associated with these in the Renaissance and modern times. (Basic knowledge of astrology required.)
