In the Cyprianus tradition, Tycho Brahe days are considered unlucky for magical work; several of the spells in the Black Books of Elverum note that they should not be carried out on a Tycho Brahe day. These days were supposed to be unlucky to perform tasks such as getting married, starting a journey, or to fall ill on.
Some lists omit certain days, or add others; there is no standard list. One should also note that Denmark was on the Julian calendar until , when it switched to the Gregorian calendar. The Egyptian days were:. These too were days considered unlucky to begin any enterprise. Physicians were especially discouraged from performing bloodletting on the Egyptian days.

The paracelsian view of man as a microcosm, and astrology as the science tying together the celestial and bodily universes was also shared by Philip Melanchthon, and was precisely one of the points of contention between Melanchthon and Luther, and hence between the philippists and the gnesio-Lutherans.
For example, two of his more astrological treatises, one on weather predictions and an almanac, were published in the names of his assistants, in spite of the fact that he worked on them personally. Some scholars have argued that he lost faith in horoscope astrology over the course of his career,  and others that he simply changed his public communication on the topic as he realized that connections with astrology could influence the reception of his empirical astronomical work.
The first biography of Tycho, which was also the first full-length biography of any scientist, was written by Pierre Gassendi in In , Dreyer published Tycho's collected works, facilitating further research.
Early modern scholarship on Tycho tended to see the shortcomings of his astronomical model, painting him as a mysticist recalcitrant in accepting the Copernican revolution, and valuing mostly his observations that allowed Kepler to formulate his laws of planetary movement. Especially in Danish scholarship, Tycho was depicted as a mediocre scholar and a traitor to the nation — perhaps because of the important role in Danish historiography of Christian IV as a warrior king.
Thoren, and John R. Christianson focused on his contributions to science, and demonstrated that while he admired Copernicus he was simply unable to reconcile his basic theory of physics with the Copernican view. Although Tycho's planetary model was soon discredited, his astronomical observations were an essential contribution to the scientific revolution. The traditional view of Tycho is that he was primarily an empiricist who set new standards for precise and objective measurements.
It was furthered by Johann Dreyer 's biography in , which was long the most influential work on Tycho. According to historian of science Helge Kragh, this assessment grew out of Gassendi's opposition to Aristotelianism and Cartesianism , and fails to account for the diversity of Tycho's activities. Olson, Marilynn S. Olson and Russell L. Doescher arguing, in part, that Tycho's supernova was also the same "star that's westward from the pole" in Shakespeare's Hamlet.

He is now generally referred to as "Tycho," as was common in Scandinavia in his time, rather than by his surname "Brahe" a spurious appellative form of his name, Tycho de Brahe , only appears much later. Dreyer manifestly disappointed.
And while the brightest stars were generally placed with the minute-of-arc accuracy Tycho expected to achieve in every aspect of his work, the fainter stars for which the slits on his sights had to be widened, and the sharpness of their alignment reduced were considerably less well located. Hoskin  concurs with Thoren's finding "Yet although the places of the brightest of the non-reference stars [in the star catalogue] are mostly correct to around the minute of arc that was his standard, the fainter stars are less accurately located, and there are many errors.
