Poetic texts are also the first to adumbrate how the moon and the stars give signs and warning to men, even before the art of celestial divination had assumed the status of a scholardy discipline. Allusions to celestial portents given to Sargon appear in liver omens, the earliest recorded mode of divination, which is atested long before celestial omens were collected and codified.
Astral Omens to Astrology by Dr S.P. Bhagat | NOOK Book (eBook) | Barnes & Noble®
Mesopotamian man sought to learn what the future holds from every conceivable event and manifestation of the world around him. Some signs came unprovoked, through fortuitous happenings in house and fold and in the sky ; others were speically requested as answers to question put to the gods through a variety of media. The fortuitous occurence and a subsequent good fortune or misfortune were linked in the mind of Mesopotamian man, as they were in many early cultures and still are in primitive societies, not so much as cause and effect, but as signals or forewarnings and events.
Usually, topically connected lists in the cuneiform writing system are acrographic as well, that is, each item-each line begins with the same cuneiform sign or group of signs, a feature that articulates the ancient syllabaries and vocabularies, as we saw earlier.
Lists can therefore often be expanded indefinitely through the addition of items that repeat the protasis with further specifications, the forecasts connected with these additional omens are accordingly modified. For example, a phenomenon occuring on the right side of the liver was paired with the same on occuring on the lefts, with the opposite forecast. If one color occured in the omen, simmilar omens with other colors, five in all : white, black, red, green and variegated, always in this sequence-could be added.
Numbers were increased from one or two to three and more, even if the increase resulted in an absurdity, as for example in the enumeration of multiple births up to eight or nine. The original practical purpose of such collections of omens was soon expanded, and even superseded, by theroretical aspirations.
Instead of expressing general principles of interpretaion in abstract terms, the scribes strove to cover the range of posibilites by means of systematic permutations in pairs left-right, above-below, and so on or in long rows. The babylonian omen series kept growing this way.
These techniques were in vogue in the Old Babylonian period, in the first half of the second millenium B. A few later excerps of lecanomancy and libanomancy are extisant but their existance as a written tradition need no indicate that the techniques were still in use, even though J. Nougayrol, argues in favour of their survival. Refference : Joan G. Westenholz, Legends of the Kings of Akkad, F. Reiner Astral Magic in Babylonia, A.
Categories: astrology. On the other hand, it is difficult to believe that these gigantic periods were elaborated by Mazdean scholars, because the image of time they represented was absolutely in contrast with the one well estab- lished in the Persian framework from the earliest times. The negative influence of the planetary demons became a means to explain the contradictions of human history, and their sequence became a key for the interpretation of future events in the larger frame of the historical horoscopy, in which Sasanian astrologers proved to be highly skilled.
Thanks in particular to Arabic sources, we still possess the horoscopes for the enthrone- ments57 of the individual Sasanian kings, a practice, which was traditional in the framework of the typically Persian continuous horoscopy.

B or indirect supportive evidence; furthermore, the Mazdean pattern does of not present fitting correspondences in the Vedic world and it cannot be ty considered as having been based on or derived from a common hereditary er ancestral tradition. On the contrary, Indian speculations produced a very op Pr different conception of time, based on a cyclical recurrence of enormous chronological periods that was in absolute contrast with the image of a linear development of time in Iran.
