"The 12 signs of the Zodiac, by the Astrologers elegantly depictured in the body of a man, I pass over with silence: for these are things ancient and commonly known, as being sung in the corners of our streets: we choose rather to meditate of more sublime and profound matters, and to bend the eye of our mind at a higher mark."
— Crooke, Helkiah (1576-1648)
