Your Dog & the Stars: What Astrology Says About Pet Personalities

Odds are you’ve heard about Astrology; an art that studies the forecasting of events, traits and personalities of people through the observation and interpretation of celestial bodies. But did you know that astrology can also be studied to better understand animals? For those who know their dog’s birthday and, therefore, their zodiac sign, astrology can help us better connect with our canine companions and provide insights into our pet’s character, compatibility and even their limitations. Knowing more about your dog’s personality can help you better care for them and be the best pet parent you can be. It’s all in the stars!

Read about what your dog’s astrological sign says about them and their unique personality!

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac as well as being a fire sign, so it’s no surprise that the Aries dog is a natural born leader. Dogs born under this sign are confident, courageous, and thrive on attention and being first. They’re not afraid to defend their people and property and they often don’t come when they’re called. However, they’re also extremely smart and learn very quickly. The Aries dog will constantly keep you on your toes as well as make you feel protected and loved with fierce devotion.

Quite contrary to the Aries dog, pups born under the Taurus sign are ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, beauty and gentleness. As such, the Taurus dog is rather shy and aloof and can be hard to train or control. Taurus pups like things the way they are and are not good at adapting to change or different circumstances. They do, however, have a great love for nature and beauty and will often take walks slowly so they can enjoy the outdoors. The Taurus dog is also a fierce friend and will love their family deeply. They make the best cuddlers!

Ruled by Mercury, Gemini dogs are very intelligent and highly curious. Because of their inquisitive nature, they can often get into trouble and they have a love for harmless mischief. Because Mercury is also the planet of communication and information, the Gemini dog is usually pretty vocal and always seems to be barking about something. Don’t be surprised if your Gemini dog also keeps you laughing— they have a comic quality to their personality that makes them hard to ignore and easy to love. They’re always sniffing their way into something!

Cancer canines are usually motived by emotions rather than logic, and are therefore more compassionate and understanding. These pups are sweet-natured and naturally calm, moving with a quiet but powerful disposition that makes them appear confident. Cancer dogs are great companions to both humans and other pets, and make amazing service animals for those who need them. Because they’re ruled by their emotions, Cancer canines tend to be highly food-motivated and want what they want, regardless if it’s the best decision for them.

Like their name implies, the Leo dog is proud, strong, and naturally charismatic. Dogs born under this sign love attention and being pampered, and will often look forward to getting brushed, groomed and doted upon. Being a fire sign, Leo dogs exude warmth, vitality and power, and don’t like competition with other animals. However, Leo dogs are some of the most loyal out there and are very grateful to their family for all they provide. Don’t be surprised if your Leo dog stands between you and a stranger when out for a walk. They always have your best interest at heart!

Like Gemini, Virgo dogs are ruled by the planet Mercury and are therefore highly intelligent and naturally curious. However, they take this one step further and are also known to be extremely hard-working and overly dedicated. Virgo dogs need a job to do and thrive on rigorous structure and routine. These dogs like to eat, walk, sleep, and play at the same times every day, and will become agitated when they’re left with nothing to do. However, the Virgo pup is also one that cares deeply and is overly aware of how their actions affect their family. They want nothing more than to make sure their pack is perfectly safe and secure.

Represented as balancing scales and ruled under Venus, Libra dogs live to create harmony and tranquility. Dogs born under this sign tend to be charming and have a gift for sensing what their people need. Libra pups love the company of other animals and often don’t like to be left alone. They thrive in good company and enjoy the peace and quiet of napping on porch over the loud excitement of running on the beach or going to the park. Libra dogs can become easily overwhelmed in stressful environments and often look to their humans for guidance on how to stay calm.

Ruled by Pluto, Scorpio dogs tend to be moody and mysterious and can often come off as way too intense. They can command a room with just a flick of their tail and like to make direct eye contact with people and other pets. Don’t be surprised if it seems like your Scorpio pup is trying to read your mind! Scorpio dogs like their privacy and it can take a while to gain their trust. When you do, however, you’ll have a loyal and dedicated dog for life. They often get attached to only one person but will make that relationship a priority. They’re the definition of man’s best friend!

The Sagittarius dog is one that is drawn to traveling and adventure. As a fire sign ruled by Jupiter, dogs born under this sign are never afraid of a challenge and always see the food bowl half full. Sagittarius dogs make great traveling companions and are the perfect pups for people who like to hike, climb, ski or swim. They have colorful and often comical personalities and tend to fit in to almost any crowd. Because of their love for adventure, the Sagittarius dog has a tendency to wander off and have a mind of their own. Always keep a watchful eye on these pups!

Represented by the mountain goat and ruled by serious Saturn, Capricorn dogs are associated with power, responsibility and hard work. The Capricorn dog loves a good challenge and is hardly ever found napping or taking time off. They love to learn new tricks and are very loyal listeners. Your Capricorn pup will probably be top of his class at behavior training! You might find, however, that your Capricorn dog looks for duties in everything and will try to keep kids, other pets and people in line. This trait does make them exceptional guard dogs and very loyal babysitters to say the least.

Aquarius dogs are ones that will often leave you guessing. These crazy canines are non-conformists and like to dance to the beat of their own drum. Ruled by Uranus, these dogs can be quite hyper and active and go from zero to sixty in the blink of an eye. As such, the Aquarius dog can get bored quite easily and is always looking for the next new toy, treat or adventure. Although easily distracted and often acting goofy, Aquarius dogs are super social and easily make friends wherever they go. They might not be overly cuddly with their people, but the Aquarius dog is a loyal companion to those who take the time to understand them.

Sensitive, dreamy and loving, the Pisces pup is one who is highly intuitive and empathetic. These soulful dogs are usually very gentle and kind, often preferring calm and quiet environments where they can relax in the sun or snooze under the covers. Pisces dogs are very attached to their people and will often follow them from room to room, sometimes getting in the way. The Pisces dog is also one to listen intently but can become easily upset when things seem wrong. They make great therapy dogs as they have a knack for sensing moods and helping those around them feel relaxed.

Knowing your dog’s personality based on their astrological sign can help strengthen your bond and might help open your eyes to why your dog acts a certain way. Just remember, however, that every dog is an individual and might not conform to the traits of their birth chart. After all, nothing is carved in stone and your pup might just navigate their life a little differently!

Pets and astrology: most compatible signs

Whether you casually skim your horoscope every month or have Mercury retrograde alerts programmed into your phone calendar, you’ve probably used astrology at one time or another to gauge compatibility with your newest crush or your oldest BFF. But there’s another important relationship in your life that could benefit from a look to the stars—one that might give you paws (hint, hint). That’s right, it’s your pet.

“The astrology chart, to me, is the fingerprint of life—it shows you the basic personality. And, of course, that works with animals as well as people,” explains astrologer and mystic Elizabeth Joyce.

And it all begins with the way in which your sign aligns with your pet’s. According to Joyce, astrological harmonies with pets work much like they do between humans. So for instance, a Virgo pet owner will be quite compatible with a pet born under a Taurus or Capricorn sign (a trine), whereas they won’t be as compatible with a pet born under a Gemini or Sagittarius sign (a square). So if you’re looking to adopt, you may want to find out when Tiger or Fido was born to see how your two signs will get along.

Astrological harmonies with pets work much like they do between humans.

Now, if you already have a furry friend at home, you can use their sign traits to better understand their behavior and train them accordingly. So if you’re an orderly Virgo with a rambunctious Gemini puppy, that may not be the best match on the surface—but don’t worry. “A Gemini wants to slide across the floor that Virgo just cleaned. You’ll have to work with her to be more disciplined,” says Joyce. (And the Virgo might want to work on her patience and letting go a bit, too…)

According to Joyce, Taurus pets (those born between April 20 and May 21) are typically the easiest of the zodiac to train, whereas Capricorns (born between December 22 and January 19) are some of the hardest. Scorpios (October 23 to November 21) aren’t ones to back down from a confrontation, whereas Cancers (June 21 to July 22) are quite sensitive and like a calm home. Aquarius pets (January 20 to February 18) can sometimes be aloof, while Pisces (February 19 to March 20) are some of the most empathetic. Being in tune to your pet’s specific rhythms and needs will help build an even stronger bond over time. (You can see Joyce’s entire rundown of the different animal sign traits here.)

Taurus pets are typically easiest to train; Capricorns are some of the hardest.

But what if you’re considering adopting a rescue and the shelter doesn’t have her birth information on hand? That’s where you’ll have to let your instincts be your guide, says Joyce.

“You do it with the heart,” she explains. “You take a deep breath and you tell your blessed higher self—or spirit or whoever you want—to connect you energetically with the right dog. That means, before you go in and look at them, you have a pre-set condition.” For example, maybe you’ll decide that the dog who jumps all over you and licks your face is the one. “Trust your instincts,” Joyce says.

Of course, Joyce stresses that astrology is just one tool for better understanding man’s (and woman’s) best friend. Your pet’s breed and unique personality are also meaningful factors. “Temperament is temperament,” says Joyce. And when you find the right pet, you’ll just know.

Pet astrology: How star signs affect dogs’ and cats’ behaviour

An astrologer has offered a playful take on how your pet’s star sign could affect their behaviour.

Jessica Adams, who lives between the UK and Australia, told how dogs and cats can be influenced by their horoscopes just like their owners.

Thoughtful Pisces, for example, can find themselves fixated with water, while Leos like to look at themselves in the mirror. 

The next few weeks might signal a period of particularly odd behaviour thanks for a phenomenon known as Mercury in retrograde, which occurs from 18 February to 9 March.

‘Mercury is the planet that actually rules pets,’ Jessica explained. ‘When it appears to go backwards and forwards, moving in peculiar ways, so does life in general, according to your horoscope. This is what’s known as Mercury retrograde. And animals are also affected.’

Speaking to FEMAIL, Jessica, who worked with pet wellbeing specialist, ITCHpet.com, shares her pet horoscopes…

21 March-20 April  

Cat: Natural hunters, a feisty Aries cat will head-butt flies or chase dogs… or the postman. When Mercury’s in retrograde, the postman may well chase them. 

Dog: A dominate Aries dog will bite everything, including your hair. They also like digging floorboards. Especially when Mercury’s in retrograde: watch for holes.


21 April-21 May 

Cat: The Taurus cat is a dribbler who loves its breakfast and will lick empty food bowls in the hope of finding the last scrap. When Mercury’s in retrograde they’ll even lick the fridge. 

Dog: Just like the Taurus cat, the Taurus dog does have an appetite. It likes chicken. turkey. And trying to catch sparrows. If their tastes change to caviar, you can blame  Mercury in retrograde. 


22 May-21 June  

Cat: Clever Gemini cats like to imitate you, the radio or the dog. 

Dog: Barking at the TV? Jumping on it? You must have a Gemini dog.


22 June-22 July 

Cat: They miss you so much when you go shopping, they get in the bag and hope you won’t notice. 

Dog: Just like domestically-minded Cancer humans, Cancer dogs like their home comforts.


23 July-23 August 

Cat: Image-conscious Leo cats like gazing at themselves in mirrors, windows or glass doors. Make sure they don’t walk into them when Mercury’s in retrograde. 

Dog: The Kings and Queens of the doggy world, Leo pups look good in Christmas cracker paper crowns. Watch out when Mercury is in retrograde: they may pinch your best hat.

24 August-22 September 

Cat: Fussy Virgo cats have discerning taste and will sniff food before they eat it.  When Mercury is in retrograde their tastes may change to the strangest things. Even mud. 

Dog: The Virgo dog loves routine and will stand on you five minutes before the alarm. But when Mercury is in retrograde, they’ll be an hour out. 


23 September-23 October 

Cat: Just like Libra humans, Libra cats are hopeless romantic. Only they express their affection through enthusiastic bottom-sniffing. Best make sure it’s not your bottom when Mercury is in retrograde, though. 

Dog: Sociable Libra dogs like to perform duets with other pets. When Mercury’s in retrograde, you might find them answering to their best friend’s name instead. 

What the experts say

Charlotte Harper, co-founder at pet wellbeing specialist, ITCHpet.com, said: ‘We love our pets regardless of their weird and wonderful behaviour and celebrate everything about them – from the good, the bad and the ugly.

‘But whether unusual antics are in the stars or not, it’s incredibly important to regularly check your pet for fleas and worms, as behavioural differences can also be down to their health and something they aren’t able to tell you about. Which is why we recommend treating your pet for fleas every month and being sure to worm them quarterly.’


24 October-22 November 

Cat: The bankers of the cat world. They line up dead mice they’ve caught. 

Dog: Amorous Scorpio dogs will attempt relationships with everything from footballs to armchairs.


23 November-21 December 

Cat: Spiritual animals – but they have been known to eat the candles or incense. When Mercury is in retrograde, they may even perform miracles. 

Dog: Great explorers, Sagittarius pups are like energetic doggy David Attenboroughs. When Mercury is in retrograde, they might try to run backwards. 


22 December-20 January 

Cat: A Capricorn cat likes to be on top and will scale any Christmas tree they see. When Mercury is in retrograde, they’ve been known to get on the roof. 

Dog: Organised Capricorn dogs pack their toys away like professionals. When Mercury is in retrograde, they might pack away your children’s too. 


21 January-18 February 

Cat: They like a gang and will form one with other cats, the dog, or the goldfish. When Mercury’s in retrograde, they’ll even try your neighbours. 

Dog: Friendly Aquarius dogs love socialising… they might even try message on your phone!


19 February-20 March  

Cat: Thoughtful Pieces cats love pond-watching or goldfish bowl gazing. Washing machines, too. Just make sure they don’t climb in when Mercury is in retrograde. 

Dog: Biting hose water or sea waves is their hobby. Also barking at ghosts.

The Best Pet For You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Picking out a pet is a big decision. It’s about a lot more than just what animal you find the cutest or what kind of animal you always imagined you would own when it came to picking one out for yourself. The most important things to consider when you’re looking for a pet is how their needs will mesh with your lifestyle and how much time you have to give them the care and attention they will require. (You’ll also want to figure out the best astrological pet name you should give them, but one thing at a time.) You should also consider their general personalities — while each individual animal will have their own quirks and whatnot, they generally share certain traits. So when trying to think up the perfect pet, you may want to look which pet is best for your zodiac sign.

Your zodiac sign can reveal so much about yourself and what you’re looking for in other people, so of course it can also show what kind of animals you would best interact with. Your pet says a lot about who you are, so you want to pick one that goes with your personality, wants, and needs. For example, if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy cleaning up after another animal a lot, you might want to consider something other than a dog. If you’re looking for a pet mainly for cuddles, then you want one that loves a lot of attention.

Here are a few ideas on what pet is best for you based on your zodiac sign — you never know, you might find your next little furry friend:

Aries (March 21 – April 19): A Puppy

Aries are the most bold and passionate of all of the zodiac signs, full of tons of energy that keep them constantly moving. They also tend to be very social people who love to have a good time and be surrounded by laughs. An energetic little puppy makes the perfect pet for any Aries as they require the amount of attention only the Ram can match.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): A Hamster

A Taurus is known for being grounded, mellow, and dependent… and also just a little bit lazy. You’ll want an animal that is fun to snuggle with, but doesn’t require a whole bunch of energy on your part — so, a pet who is a little low-maintenance but also cuddly. The hamster is ideal: they love to snuggle with their owners, you can give them the care they need, and they’re super sweet.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): A Parrot

Geminis are animal lovers who are constantly thinking, talking, and engaging, so they need a pet who can do the same. For a Gemini, a slow-moving pet that most just sits around just isn’t going to cut it. Instead, get something like a parrot: not only are they intelligent and interesting enough for you, but they’ll also talk back to you!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): A Hedgehog

Cancers can be a little moody and emotional, meaning that a pet with really high energy might not be the best fit. You can also be great at nurturing, so why not get a little delicate pet that needs your love and attention and will also snuggle sometimes? A cute hedgehog fits the bill.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Bengal Cat

As a Leo, you love to always be the center of attention and to surround yourself with beautiful, exotic things. You don’t want your pet to be any different, so you need something that’s going to stand out and attract tons of stares. Enter the Bengal cat: these exotic and beautiful animals will definitely stand out enough for you.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23): A Fish

Virgos are known as the most clean of all of the zodiac signs. You like things to be orderly, organized, and put together, and you likely have no patience for something like a dog or cat, who will shed a lot and leave a mess behind. Instead, go for a super low-maintenance pet, like a fish. Fish can be great companions and can be interesting to own, but they also don’t leave your house a mess.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): A Rabbit

As a Libra, you like to be surrounded by beautiful, nice things, meaning you want a pet that’s going to also attract some attention. But you also place a huge importance on relationships and want something you can play with and snuggle with. That’s why a sweet bunny rabbit is perfect. They’re cuddly, loving, and so adorable to look at.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): A Snake

If any sign in the zodiac is going to be a perfect match for a reptile like a snake, it’s a Scorpio. You are mysterious, emotional, and known for having a bit of a dark side — basically just like a snake. You’ll appreciate their equally mysterious nature and their eerie beauty, and you’ll love how they stand out are more unique.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): An Older Cat

Sagittarius, you are the world traveler of all of the zodiac signs. Constantly plagued with a never-ending sense of wanderlust, you’re always on the go, whether you’re traveling or going off on some sort of adventure. If you’re going to get a pet, you need a low-maintenance pet who doesn’t require your full attention all the time. This is hard to find, but an older cat might fit the bill: as long as the cat isn’t a breed that requires a ton of attention, they are easier to take care of and still make great companions.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): A Guinea Pig

Capricorns are known for being super hard workers who can appreciate a long day at the office. While you might be pretty busy with work quite often, you’re also super patient and able to give a pet the care and love they need. Try a guinea pig or two: they can be okay on their own for a bit, but they still need that nurturing love and care you can provide.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 19): Birds

As an Aquarius, you’re known for being on the more unique side, so you’ll want a pet that’s the same way. You’re also looking for a pet that’s more intelligent than cuddly, you want one who isn’t super needy. Try getting a bird — they’re smart, they’re interesting, and you can find some seriously unique ones out there.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20): An Older Dog

Pisces are really emotional people who love to be loved. You want a pet you can cuddle with and love on all the time, but also one who will understand your emotions. Opt for an older dog who is trained and easy to deal with. Get a super cuddly breed so you can always have a friend.

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius – signs of the fire element. The interior for these signs must correspond to the elements of Fire. But this is only a general concept.

Home astrology: an interior for the element of Air

For people related to the element of Air, a lot of energy is required. And just their own interior for them is an energy replenishment, since air quickly comes and goes, and the reserves need to be quickly renewed accordingly.

For people related to the element of Air, a lot of energy is required.And just their own interior for them is an energy replenishment, since air quickly comes and goes, and the reserves need to be quickly renewed accordingly.

Air is an active element that constantly changes its forms. This element includes the signs of the zodiac: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius. These people are quickly addicted to everything new, sociable, contact.

Interior planning solutions for the element of Air.

Make sure there is free space.The rounded layout of the apartment is suitable for the element of Air.
It is better to have a minimum of doors and partitions in the house, and if there are, then let them be light, for example, glass, stained glass or composite.

Double-leaf doors match this sign. It’s great if the screens and partitions are also mobile, because the air loves movement!

Always leave the central parts of the rooms free. Podiums and level drops are quite acceptable, since they impart dynamics to the interior.

The most suitable options for people of the element of Air are upper floors and penthouses. There must be a balcony or bay window.

A rounded apartment decor or drawings are suitable for the element of Air.

Forms and lines for the element of Air.

This is a circle and an oval, the most mobile and lightest-looking forms. In the interior of the Air signs, most of the planning lines, patterns and ornaments, furniture outlines should come from a circle or oval.

But, since a friendly element must be present, the interior needs to be supplemented with a rhombus and a triangle – the attributes of Fire.Albeit in small quantities. For example, a circular rug might have a scalloped pattern.

The most advantageous thing is to add Fire accessories to the general interior of Air, and change them from time to time, since air signs need changes most of all.

Colors of the element of Air.

It is white, sky blue, light gray, light green gray. Other colors are possible, but their shades should be very light, as if bleached.

This is a very delicate, pastel color scheme that is comfortable for the eyes.By the way, it is mostly cold.
Shades of gray are more suitable for Gemini, white is more suitable for Libra, and shades of blue for Aquarius.

But, keeping in mind the necessary presence of Fire, you need to introduce a drop of orange, bright yellow or red into the interior. Bright color is needed not only because it is a helper element, but also because contrast is the dynamics so necessary for the air.

Light colors in the interior are characteristic of people of the element of Air.

Decoration materials of the element of Air.

They must be smooth and preferably shiny. The most suitable are glossy paints, glass, glazed ceramic tiles and majolica, metal, mirrors, lacquered wood.

If fabrics are used in the interior, then it should be silk, satin, fabrics with lurex, or organza.
Materials of the element of Air have much in common with the element of Fire, only here smoothness should still prevail over brilliance, and the color scheme is colder. This is the difference.

To add Fire, it is better to use warm colors. For example, you can hang curtains with a yellowish tint, or put ceramic tiles in the pattern of which there will be golden touches.

If wood is used in the interior, then the most suitable species for Air are beech, oak, birch, poplar, maple. If we talk about the preferences of specific signs, then for Gemini it is metal, for Libra it is glass, and for Aquarius it is ceramics.

Furniture for the element of Air.

Furniture should be light and have rounded shapes. The best design for furniture is on legs, the most compact sizes should be chosen. Modern designer furniture is perfect here.

And furniture should also be mobile – on wheels, sliding, transformable, in extreme cases, easily portable from place to place.

Hanging furniture – this is the ideal for the element of Air, therefore at least one hanging chair is indispensable in the apartment of representatives of this sign.

Rockers, rotating models are also good. And even curtains and drapes also need to be mobile – easily changeable in design, with different mechanisms.

Furniture should be light and have rounded shapes.

Accessories of the element of Air.

Of course, for the most part this is everything that moves! So various mobiles, turntables, pendulum clocks, bells, pendants are classic Air accessories.

Hanging curtains made of beads are a very suitable accessory for an airy interior.If we are talking about an ornament, then most of all for the element of Air is a floristic ornament, or an ornate, complex, “lace”. Paisley pattern is also suitable.

Interior lighting for the element of Air.

There should be a lot of light in the interiors of air people. Moreover, it should be both warm and cold, as well as different in strength and color. There must be at least one colored light fixture (with a colored light bulb). Lamps with long hangers are suitable.

Vesta – astrological program for a mobile device

Astrological program is a computer program designed to perform applied astrological calculations that can greatly simplify the work of an astrologer.

Modern programs allow you to perform complex calculations using ephemeris in a matter of seconds (see.ephemeris) of planets, minor planets (asteroids) and stars (see star and Swiss ephemeris [1]) and tables of horoscope houses (see horoscope houses) for which ancient astrologers spent hours of work.

A distinction is made between programs for:

Astrological programs can be subdivided into:

  • professional – intended for professional work and requiring sufficient basic knowledge of astrology, psychology, astronomy and a specific applied field for which the program was created.
  • household – intended for use by people who do not have the above knowledge. These programs, as a rule, give the result in the form of text and tables (graphs) of the interpretation of the horoscope (natal chart) or forecasts of events.

Creation of astrological programs requires knowledge of not only programming languages ​​(see Programming language), but also, to a greater extent, astronomical and astrological knowledge.

90,000 15 unique illustrations of their medieval manuscript on life, medicine and astrology

Tübingen home book.

The Tübingen Home Book or Iatromathematical Calendar Book is a unique manuscript in German that was created in 1430-1480, probably in the Swabian Duchy of Württemberg (southwest Germany). The manuscript is now kept in the Library of the University of Tübingen. In our review there are 15 illustrations from this amazing book, which I can tell you a lot of interesting things.

The Tübingen Home Book covers several areas at once. So, home (or brownie) in the Middle Ages in Germany was called a book that contained information about a variety of subjects, i.e.That is, it was a kind of practical almanac or reference book. In addition, the book had a section devoted to medicine (hence the name – iatromathematical calendar book), and a section devoted to geomancy – fortune telling with the help of the earth.

Four seasons of the annual cycle in the Tübingen home book.

The book contained medical and astrological knowledge for “non-specialists”. It was a kind of home guide, telling about the methods of treatment, in particular, bloodletting.

Zodiac man. The Tübingen Home Book. Library of the University of Tubingen. XV century.

The image, which the authors of the book called “the zodiac man” was intended to visually explain how the signs of the zodiac and other astrological components affect the state of a person. It is known that in the Middle Ages, astrology and medicine were closely interconnected. Before making a diagnosis, doctors often consulted astrological charts and almanacs.Many of these almanacs contained illustrations to help explain difficult points to patients.

The sun is looking at the girl with interest, and the Moon is mockingly critical. This is probably female jealousy.

Astrological works in the 12th and 13th centuries were translated into Latin from the Arabic language, and over time became part of European medical methods, which in turn were transformed into Galenian medicine. Galen was a great Greek physician and physiologist who lived from about 129-216.AD and systematized ancient knowledge into a doctrine that was the basis of medicine until the end of the Middle Ages.

In addition to the topics already mentioned, the book contains chapters on the signs of the Zodiac, astrological houses, planets, four temperaments are described, the characters of people born under a certain sign, tables for astronomical and astrological calculations of fate, a guide to deciphering fortune-telling and other important data are given. A series of pictures from the manuscript is dedicated to the planets and their areas of responsibility in the lives of mere mortals.We study and analyze.







The book also contains illustrations for the conceptual knowledge of that time. The picture below illustrates the seven liberal arts. From left to right: Geometry, Logic, Arithmetic, in the center Grammar, Music, Physics (usually Astronomy in this place), Rhetoric.

Ancient astrological works were translated from Arabic into Latin in the 12th and 13th centuries. They soon became part of daily medical practice in Europe. Physicians combined Galenic medicine with a careful study of the stars. Galen was a great Greek physician and physiologist who lived from about 129-216. AD. He systematized ancient knowledge into the doctrine, which was the basis of medicine until the end of the Middle Ages.
