Too far

Fox tossing is an example of how distant, culturally, we are from ancient days. But there are also hints of how close we are to those times too. This shows that even back in the 16th century astrology had its nay sayers. The book, Assertionis fidei adversus astrologos, points out that the celestial firmament is a long way away so, y'know, unlikely to influence mere mortals pottering about on Earth. Just saying.
