Shakespeare and the Stars
The Hidden Astrological Keys to Understanding the World’s Greatest Playwright
Priscilla Costello

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, this book offers fresh and exciting insights into the ever-popular works of the world’s greatest playwright. It specifically highlights Shakespeare’s use of the archetypal language of astrological symbolism in both obvious and subtle ways. The deeper significance of such references is often lost to modern-day playgoers and readers.

The author demonstrates that many of Shakespeare’s plays are entirely keyed to a specific zodiacal sign and its associated (or ruling) planet. Shakespeare’s audience would have grasped their significance in revealing character, foreshadowing plot, and establishing key themes for each play. The first half of the book provides the necessary background for understanding the plays by describing the synthesis of both classical and Christian ideas at the time. The seven planets were considered an integral part of the cosmos—instrumental in shaping human character. The Elizabethan worldview also explains the use of music, images, and symbols in the plays. .
