Editorial Reviews

Review

"Finally, we have an historically accurate work revealing how astrologers and their followers connived in the imperial court to steer the fate of the Roman Empire... A great book." - Michael R. Molnar (The Star of Bethlehem)
 
 "Fans of astrology will delight in this compelling narrative, as will the lover of historical novels." - James Herschel Holden (A History of Horoscopic Astrology)
 
 "Imaginative, interesting ... a striking example of this preposterous doctrine influencing the course and timing of history." - Michael Grant (History of Rome)

From the Publisher

This groundbreaking historical novel reads like a thriller and utilizes ancient and modern astrological charts to provide a unique insight into a misunderstood legend and the time in which he lived.

The Nero Prediction combines information gathered from astrologers and historians during the time of Nero with modern astrological software to recreate a predictive natal reading for the most infamous of emperors as well as a number of other key figures of the time. Knipe reveals how the predictions of ancient astrologers were uncannily accurate and shook the Empire to its core.

James Herschel Holden, Research Director of the American Federation of Astrologers, calls Nero: "Fascinating ... Fans of astrology will delight in this compelling narrative, as will the lover of historical novels. The book is enhanced by an appendix explaining the fundamentals of natal astrology and listing the birth dates of first century celebrities."

About ancient astrology... Though modern astrology emphasizes the psychological effects of the zodiac, ancient astrology concerned itself much more with prediction. Due to its perceived ability to foretell the downfall of emperors and the most auspicious moment for revolution, astrology’s influence on the world of ancient Rome was powerful and subversive. Tradition relates that the emperor Tiberius would order hurled from a cliff those astrologers whose advice and predictions he did not find satisfactory.

Due to its emphasis on the forecast of the future, classical astrology has enjoyed a small revival in recent years from astrologers who feel that its practical take on divination can breathe new life into modern practice.

"Classical astrology puts meat on the bones of astrology while adding height and depth to its soul and spirit. As a divinatory art and science (in its original meaning of ‘knowledge’), it helps to put us back in touch with the divine." —Dorian Gieseler Greenbaum, classicalastrology.org
