Culture and Cosmos is the first journal to be devoted to the study of the history of astrology and cultural astronomy. If astrology is the use of celestial phenomena to provide meaning for human life, then cultural astronomy is the broader use of astronomical beliefs and theories to regulate and inform society, politics, the arts and every aspect of human life.

Culture and Cosmos is peer-reviewed, and all articles considered for publication will be sent out to specialist reviewers for comment. We will consider articles on any aspect of the history of astrology or cultural astronomy, from earliest times down to the present day. Our subjects may vary from the development of astrology in ancient Sumer to contemporary belief in alien abduction. We will carry articles, news and reviews.
