Description

John Partridge's Mikropanastron, published in 1679, gives an excellent introduction to the basics of traditional astrology, explaining the essential dignities, aspects, houses and quickly jumping into horary, telling, "How to judge all manner of Questions".

Partridge then passes onto natal astrology, packing in detailed information on all areas of the birth chart, including length of life, temperament, complexion, manners, wit, stature, wealth, childbirth, illness, marriage, journeys, religion, honor and dignity, friends and imprisonment. Partridge also gives useful instruction on directions in the natal chart and a catalog of fixed stars.

Partridge gives a particularly useful look at elections, carefully distinguishing between those elections that need to take into consideration the natal chart of the user and those that can be profitably made without a natal chart. Very interesting!

Perhaps my favorite part of Mikropanastron is Partridge's extensive listing of aphorisms, short explanatory sayings, that were a favorite of our illustrious predecessors. He includes his own aphorisms for elections, Gadbury's natal aphorisms, plus 100 aphorisms of Hermes, 100 aphorisms of Bethem, an extra hundred aphorisms plus the famous Centiloquium attributed to Ptolemy!

A great resource for 17th century horary, electional and natal astrology! 250 pages of original material with two facing pages of original per page. Facsimile version, very clean copy, 8.5 x 11 inch format.
