Bonatti on Basic Astrology: Theory, Signs, Planets, Houses, Configurations is a reprint excerpted from the first and only complete translation of Guido Bonatti's medieval astrological masterpiece, The Book of Astronomy. It is essential for students of traditional astrology.
Treatise 1: Defense of Astrology.
A theoretical defense of astrology which includes Bonatti's theoretical description of astrological judgment in terms of necessity, possibility, and impossibility (26 pp).
Treatise 2: Signs and Houses
Probably the most thorough treatment of the signs and houses existing in astrological literature. Drawing on many sources, Bonatti gives an explanation of the order and assignment of the signs, dignities, the weighted-point al-mubtazz, the houses and their powers, and an introduction to delineating the rulers of one house in another (121 pp).
Treatise 3: Planets
Important especially for students of horary. After a thorough description of the planets' universal significations and their rulerships over hours, days, periods of life, and other matters, Bonatti turns to an account of modes of perfection. Drawing on authorities such as al-Qabisi and Abu Ma'shar, Bonatti describes numerous methods of perfection and the denial of perfection which pertain to all areas of traditional astrology. Bonatti's text is illustrated with 16 redesigned diagrams (101 pp).

Deconstructing Gurdjieff: Biography of a Spiritual Magician
Inner Traditions / Bear & Company
In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of "the greatest man in the world," yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed "the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins," Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff?
Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction
