This volume presents a critical edition of 18 Middle English astrological texts in verse and prose, based upon lunar astrology and its prognostics for all areas of life - personality, physical appearance, profession, health, medicine, sexuality, marriage, agriculture, commerce, and travel. It constitutes a large number of individual manuscripts, and texts raise several topics which, the book argues, need to be better understood within the context of late medieval thought, notably determinism, physiognomy, and medicine.
