Night and Day: Planetary Sect in Astrology (Used)

by Hand, Robert

Publisher: ARHAT (Robert Hand)

Binding: Spiral or comb-bound

Book ID: HAND1, HAND1

Description

Night and Day -- in print since 1995 -- is the first work to introduce in any detail the ancient and medieval doctrines of sect. The sects were the followers of the Sun and of the Moon respectively from among the planets. But the most important aspect of the doctrine is way in which charts of daytime and nighttime births are read differently. Sect issues affect dignities, and even the manner of reading the individual planets. The text is aimed at any astrologer who has a reasonable basic knowledge of modern astrology. No extensive knowledge of traditional astrology is required.

The contents include basic introductory material and definitions understandable by anyone with a decent knowledge of modern astrology, plus case studies, a discussion of the ways in which the various planets change their meanings in day and night charts, and several other issues affected by sect such as the computation of the Parts, planetary periods, and calculations involving health and life-expectancy.

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways. Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Hamilton-Giles, Peter
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...

"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."
