Astrological Man (1416) By Limbourg Brothers

Such is the way of all superstition, whether in astrology, dreams, omens, divine judgments, or the like; wherein men, having a delight in such vanities, mark the events where they are fulfilled, but where they fail, though this happen much oftener, neglect and pass them by.

Francis Bacon

The Zodiac Man By Unknown Persian Artist

Unfortunately, there is no artist or date reference. However, the picture speaks for itself. Scorpion dicked, astrological intertwined, bald meatball head man. What more could you ask for!?

The Witches’ Sabbath (17th Century) By Salvator Rosa

No one shall be found among you who makes a son or daughter pass through fire, who practices divination, or is a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer, or one that casts spells, or who consults ghosts or spirits, or who seeks oracles from the dead. For whoever does these things is abhorrent to the Lord.
