Marsilio Ficino & Astral Magic
with Frances Clynes
Thursday 19th October
Renaissance priest, Ficino (1433–1499), believed that the gods were embodied in the planets and in the material world. Earthly objects were associated with specific planets and could carry the power of that planet and, because of this, allowed us to communicate with the individual planets, which he saw as aspects of the human psyche.
This talk will look at the astral magic of Ficino and how it would influence the birth of the theosophical movement in the 19th century and the development of psychological astrology in the 20th.
