William Lilly
by Bernard Fitzwalter

William LillyWilliam Lilly was once Britainís most famous astrologer. He lived from 1602-1682 and had many royal and celebrity clients. He once published a woodcut showing the Gemini twins (which govern London) above a city consumed in flames. After the Great Fire broke out, he was accused of starting it to fulfil his own prophecy. Later though, he supported Cromwell in the Civil War and damaged his reputation by making overly impassioned predictions. Eventually he restored his good name though a series of more accurate judgements. On Monday, at 11am in London, at the Old Aldwych Station, an official plaque is being erected to his memory.
