“Astrology in the Renaissance”

ReniassanceAstrology had a renaissance too (as it has now) in the Renaissance.  What was the “Elizabethan Worldview” and how is it still the astrological world view?  How did great artists (like Botticelli) and writers (like Shakespeare) express that perspective?  The issues then (religion vs spirituality, individuality vs orthodoxy, fate vs free will) are still relevant today.                                                                      (Priscilla will also include bonus material on Neptune and the current Saturn-Neptune square.)
