Astrology interested itself chiefly with the relative positions of planets and with their conjunctions. Diodorus of Sicily, after recording the Chaldeans assert that planets change their velocities and periods of time, says: “These stars exert the greatest influence for both good and evil upon the nativity of men; and it is chiefly from the nature of these planets and the study of them that they know what is in store for mankind.”

It is perfectly correct to say as Diodorus did because of the great changes which were brought upon mankind and the nature of everything living on this planet by encounters with other planets. But from the truth of this belief of the Chaldeans and to the wrong conclusions was but a short distance. If the planets at their different encounters caused flood, hurricane, or conflagration, destruction of animals, or appearance of new plants, man could easily conclude that this or that consequence is the result of a special character of this or that planet.............
