But undoubtly the priest of the Pharaohs were the docile pupils in astrology of the old Chaldean priests.
Judicial astrology--more important branch of this occult art--depended for its predictions upon the position of the planets in the "twelve houses" at the moment of the birth of a human being.Even in the time of Chaldean, which should be called Assyrian, astrology, the five planets, together with the sun and moon, were divided according to their character and their position in the zodiac as well as according to their position in the twelve houses.As star of the sun, Saturn was the great planet and ruler of the heavens.Seneca says that a Greek translation, made by Berosus, of the "Namar-Beli" from the library the Asurbanipal was known to classical antiquity.The Egyptians and Hindus were as zealous astrologers as the nations on the Euphrates and Tigris.
Many of its theories are not to be rejected a priori, since the question of the moon's meteorological influence still awaits a solution which must depend upon the progress of human knowledge as to ether waves and cognate matters.
