About perfumes, herbs, temperaments

A while ago I had the opportunity of visiting in Rome a true  factory of perfumes of antiquity with its products: the factory of Pyrgos in the southern part of the island of Cyprus.

The myth tells us about Venus, the goddess of beauty and love: when she arose from the foam of the sea, the Graces- who were addicted to the care of her beauty – picked plants and flowers from the island of Cyprus in order to create her inimitable perfume.

If every nation has its own witches and devils, the story says from every angle of the world these wicked souls meet  under the walnut of Benevento, an ancient city between the mountains of Sannio, in the heart of  southern Italy.

Romans called this city Maleventum from the ancient name of the city: for them the word sounded like “evil event” so they considered a  doomed city until  276 b.C. when they stopped in its forests Pyrrhus of Epirus, obliging him to come back in his homeland. At this point hardly this city could be considered negative for Romans, and they changed its name in Beneventum, i.e. good event.

My name is Margherita Fiorello and I live in Rome, in Italy, where I graduated in one of the oldest European Universities, “La Sapienza” founded in 1303 – with a thesis on the daily life of noble families in Rome during the Renaissance.

I’m interested in astrology since the end of the Eighties, when – because of various trips abroad – I was able to read the transcripts – even now never translated into Italian – of Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas’ seminars, in those years almost unknown in Italy. My different orientation and years of study, made me feel soon the great limits of psychological astrology and, increasingly unhappy, I have chosen to look elsewhere. For a dozen years I have been dedicating to studying traditional and horary astrology so I collected a decent collection of ancient texts and University papers and dissertations on the subject in Italian, in English and French.

For some years I have been studying Mediterranean humoral medicine, herbal remedies traditionally used according to the teachings of Dioscorides and Galen and iconography of medieval herbaria.

I’m a member of the Italian Association of traditional astrology founded by Prof. Giuseppe Bezza, CieloeTerra and a certified member of CIDA- Italian Center for Astrological Disciplines, and between teachers of Almugea school for horary and electional astrology, after having studied there with Giancarlo Ufficiale, former secretary of CieloeTerra.

I’m in touch with several traditional astrologers from different countries, and a member of several traditional astrological lists.
