As far back as the year 2154, we find mention of the great importance attaching to the celestial phenomena in the minds of Chinese rulers.

It is recorded in the Historical Classic of China that at that time the astrologers Hi and Ho neglected their duties so that when, on the 10th of October, there was a great eclipse of the Sun at Peking between seven and nine o’clock in the morning, the people were wholly unprepared for it, and “ran about here and there in the utmost consternation.” For this offence Hi and Ho were deprived of their offices, their estates were confiscated and they were driven from the kingdom.

Mercury and Venus will then appear to revolve around the Sun while the Sun revolves around the Earth, sometimes being between the Earth and the Sun, which is called an Inferior conjunction, sometimes on the further side of the Sun away from the Earth, as at their Superior conjunction; and again, at other times to the right or left of the Sun, in East or West elongation.

The other planets, having orbits greater than that of the Earth, will appear to revolve around it at constantly varying distances and velocities.

He wrote the Tetrabiblos, or Four Books, and laid the foundations of a true astrological science.

Julius Firmicus confirmed Ptolemy and enlarged upon his observations.When at aphelion the planets move slower, and when at perihelion they move quicker than at the mean distance.Astronomers employ an imaginary circular orbit for the planets, in which they move at an uniform rate of velocity, which is called the mean motion.The subsequent discovery of the planets Uranus and Neptune by Herschel and Adams, widened the field of research and gave to later astrologers the clue to much that hitherto had been imperfectly understood.Not that these discoveries overturned the whole system of astrology, as some have imagined and foolishly stated, or that they negatived the conclusions drawn from the observed effects of the seven anciently known bodies of the solar system, but it became possible after a lapse of time to fill in the blank spaces and to account for certain events which had not been traced to the action of any of the already known planets.Incomplete as it must needs be, it is yet a veritable science both as to its principles and practice.
