As science advanced, particularly after the seventeenth and 18th centuries in Western nations, therefore, the general public’s perceptions started to shift. Concerns were raised by the progress of science, because any prediction had to be backed up by evidence. In the late Renaissance, the most popular type of astrology didn’t have enough proof to satisfy the growing scientific community. At this point, astrology and other similar techniques developed in subterranean systems, lost their general place in “scientific” astronomy, and were instead consigned to “magical practice,” which paradoxically led to their inclusion in the realms of ignorant superstition.
It wasn’t until the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with the likes of Alan Leo and WD Gann, that the “non-scientific” practice of astrology was revitalised and reintroduced into the public consciousness.
Alan Leo, who was interested in astrology, got people interested in it again by giving them cheap astrological readings of their horoscopes. As a result of the overwhelming demand, he had to hire other astrologers to keep up with the workload. In 1915, he started a branch of the secretive Theosophical Society in London called the Astrological Lodge. This is still operating effectively.
W.D. Gann is remembered with great respect for his use of geometry, astrology, and old math to predict what would happen in the financial markets. He developed the technical analysis methods of Gann angles, indicators, and master charts.
Gann is the author of How to Make Profits Trading in Commodities and 45 Years in Wall Street. W.D. Gann died on June 18, 1955.
