Heading 3

Kepler & Michael Maestlin

discuss  their sons' horoscopes

Some historians mistakenly claim that Johannes Kepler's use of astrology was to 'pay the bills'.  Kepler was both an astrologer and an astronomer.  This is evidenced by his correspondence with astronomer, Michael Maestilin on their sons' birth charts (1598).  This abstract is taken from Culture and Cosmos (2010)  Volume 14. No. 1 & 2 page 55.  Translated by Dr. Cordelia Linde and annoted by Dr. Dorian Greenbaum
