Ramchal peers deeply into the stars at a number of points, both esoterically (in Klach itself, Klallim Rishonim, and Adir Bamarom) and exoterically (in Derech Hashem, Da’at Tevunot, and Adir Bamarom).
We’re going to take a short break here ourselves to delve into Derech Hashem 2:7 and Klallim Rishonim 34 where he goes into all this at length and come back with a short synopsis.
