Poetry of Stars is a historical overview of the beginning and development of Philippine Astrology. Encompassing pre-colonial, colonial, and modern astrological practices, the exhibition aims to help visitors understand how natural phenomena such as seasons, phases of the moon, movement of stars, and other celestial activities have directed the decision-making of Filipinos for centuries.

The exhibition features books on astrology from the library collection, an artwork by National Artist Jose Joya, Kalendaryong Pilipino, along with some personal items of poet, journalist, publisher, and astrologer Serafin Lanot, whose birth centennial is also celebrated this month.
