Prize for Patrons on the $5 Tier: Hellenistic Astrology Book
The winner of the March giveaway on the $5 tier will receive a signed copy of Chris Brennan’s new book Hellenistic Astrology: The Study of Fate and Fortune!
Hellenistic astrology is a tradition of horoscopic astrology that was practiced in the Mediterranean region from approximately the first century BCE until the seventh century CE. It is the source of many of the modern traditions of astrology that still flourish around the world today, although it is only recently that many of the surviving texts of this tradition have become available again for astrologers to study.
Hellenistic Astrology: The Study of Fate and Fortune is the first comprehensive survey of this tradition in modern times. The book covers the history, philosophy, and techniques of ancient astrology, with a special focus on demonstrating how many of the fundamental concepts underlying the practice of western astrology originated during the Hellenistic period.

How to Enter the Giveaway
All you have to do to enter the giveaway is become a patron of The Astrology Podcast through our page on Patreon at the $5 or $10 tier. The monthly raffle is one of the perks that patrons receive for donating to support the show, in addition to the other bonuses.
On episode 102 of the show we will do a drawing and then announce the winners of this month’s giveaway.
If you are already a patron of the show on one of those tiers then you are already set, and you will be entered in to the drawing automatically. If you are currently a patron of the show on one of the lower tiers then all you have to do to enter is upgrade to the $5 or $10 tier.
The only restriction for patrons is that your max monthly pledge has to be set at either the same as or more than the amount equivalent to what funding four episodes would cost in a month on that tier (i.e. $20 on the $5 tier or $40 on the $10 tier). If you have the max pledge set to less than this then you would not be qualified to enter in to the drawing, although there is still time to adjust that if you would like to be entered in for a chance to win.
If you enjoy the show and listen to it frequently then please consider pledging your support through our page on Patreon to help with the production of future episodes of the podcast.
If you have any questions or comments please email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to OPA for sponsoring the show this month!
