This is the excellent foppery of the world, that, when we are sick in fortune, – often the surfeit of our own behaviour, – we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars: as if we were villains by necessity; fools by heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and treachers, by spherical predominance drunkards, liars, and adulterers, by an enforced obedience of planetary influence.

– William Shakespeare

King Lear, Act 1, Scene 2.
