Reference Entry
An encyclopedia entry for the term "sublunar" is presented. Every thing that is sublunar or below the moon is found within the Earth. In classical astrology, astrological forces were often associated with the sublunar realm but not in the celestial realm. The ancient geocentric concept of the universe formed the Sun, Moon, and planets in concentric, moving, crystalline spheres around the Earth at the center of the solar system.
