The Cosmos: Wisdom in the Stars

The night sky has fascinated humans since the beginning of time, and the cosmos remains one of the universe’s greatest wonders. We speak to science writer Jo Marchant and a Sidereal Astrologer, Dayna Lynn Nuckolls to trace back to the origins of astrology, astronomy, the zodiac, solstices and more, from the ancient babylonians to modern new age practises. The episode explores how the rise of modern spiritual practises are helping us reconnect to the skies above which science is beginning to reveal, has profound impact on our health and how we choose to live in the world.
