Project Valens: Translating the Roots of Astrology

OAA Board Member Brandi Leve is assisting local area Portland School of Astrology teacher Andrea L. Gehrz on a translation project. Check the details!

So what is this all about?

We are inviting you to join us on the journey to complete an easily digestible, technically sound English translation of a 9 book anthology written over 2000 years ago by the Hellenistic Astrologer Vettius Valens.

Why do we need your support?

As you can imagine, translating 2000 year old ancient Greek texts is tricky business. Aside from the language skills necessary, it takes a knowledgeable astrologer to dive into the texts and bring out its original meaning and intent. But with your help, Moira Press can fund the translation of the Anthology, including the costs it takes to research, translate, publish, and market these works. It takes some serious resources to get these books into the public’s hands, and we’re offering you a first chance to read them by supporting this important mission.

Your contribution helps support the process in the following ways:

  • Allows for more dedicated time to sit down and work through the texts, in turn getting the material out to the public faster
  • Cover costs incurred around editing, publishing, legal, etc
  • A chance to bring these ancient teachings to life in the modern world, transmitted for the first time by an actual Astrologer. We know, it’s a big deal.

And if you pledge $5 or more you’ll get access to behind the scenes materials and special early releases of the Anthology each month and original custom made rewards such as: pins, totes, journals, T-Shirts.
