Astrology has been a bete noire to many a shepherd: the doctors of the great religions either rejected it or they frowned upon it, with very few exceptions - and their more zealous followers persecuted the practitioners; ancient and medieval emperors and kings were fascinated by it, but they feared the astrologer who would read the stars against them; modern political and religious charismatics officially scoff at the art and its performers - and yet (the author's statement notwithstanding) quite a few of them have clandestine recourse to it - I am thinking of Hitler and Hess, who had their own court astrologers in secret, even when they persecuted all other practitioners.
