Description

Between 1784 and 1788, Ebenezer Sibly issued A New Complete Illustration of the Celestial Science of Astrology in four parts. While parts 1-3 dealt almost purely with astrology, the fourth part consisted of a brief overview of the rest of the occult world as Sibly saw it, going into such topics as life after death, ghosts, angels,demons, heaven and hell, as well as magic in general.

The Station of Man in the Universe reproduces the entire fourth part of A New and Complete Illustration, as well as including two essays from the first part that deal with Sibly's view of the esoteric universe as a whole, touching on both astrology and the hermetic conception of the elements, as well as the angelic world.

It is prefaced by an introduction by the editor that situates Sibly in his place and time, giving a glimpse into the esoteric world of the late 18th and early 19th century in Great Britain.

From the Introduction:

Ebenezer Sibly was a magician, astrologer, and physician who wanted to be taken seriously by the scientific establishment. Known for casting the horoscope of the United States, he was perhaps the last great representative of the British magical worldview of the 17th century best exemplified by astrologer William Lilly, herbalist Nicholas Culpepper, and the translator Robert Turner, among others. To the list can be added Thomas Vaughan and Elias Ashmole. Living at the end of the 18th century Sibly fought valiantly to reconcile astrology, natural magic, and herbalism with both science and mainstream medicine, and to justify it to an increasingly skeptical public. To help in the fight he enlisted Swedenborg and Mesmer. It was a losing battle. Sibly's point of view would peter out after his death, until the occultism of the 17th century ceased to be a living tradition.

The Voynich Manuscript The Voynich Manuscript
Clemens, Raymond
Yale University Press

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...

Norse Mythology Norse Mythology
Gaiman, Neil
W.W. Norton & Co. Inc.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin's son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki--son of a giant--blood brother to Odin and a trick...

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press

Limited to 800 copies

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...

Charing, Howard G
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
