Hudibras and Ralph, both wearing large hats, stand in the doorway on the left had side of the composition. The Astrologer works at his desk on the right with his back to the viewer while a servant speaks to him from behind a curtain. The Astrologer's home is messy and full of books, lit only by natural light. The subject was inspired by Samuel Butler's 17th century epic mock poem, "Hudibras".
