Essential Medieval Astrology: Horary Series, Vol. I - “Every question of astronomy... is either in thought or in speech.”
In the 1140s AD, Hermann of Carinthia assembled instructions from medieval Arabic-speaking authorities on interpreting the unstated thoughts of clients (now called “consultation charts”), often using a “victor” or mubtazz or almuten for topics or the chart. Hermann also offered his own reflections on the proper balancing of dignities, house rank, and planetary strength.
The Search of the Heart is now available for the first time. To Hermann’s book, Dr. Benjamin Dykes has added similar instructions and source texts from such notable astrologers as al-Rijal (Haly Abenragel), Sahl bin Bishr, Masha’allah, ‘Umar al-Tabari, al-Kindi, Abraham ibn Ezra, Leopold of Austria, Ptolemy, Hephaistio of Thebes, “Argafalau,” and others. Preview the table of contents and text here.
In his lengthy Introduction, Dykes suggests that thought-interpretation and its victors in horary were supposed to identify what a client’s interest is or should be, as a preliminary to crafting a horary question. Preview the Introduction here.
With its huge number of approaches and never-before translated texts, The Search of the Heart is essential for traditional astrologers.

The Luminous Stone: Lucifer in Western Esotericism (Western Esotericism in Context)
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...
The Voynich Manuscript
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...More
