Description

John Middleton’s Practical Astrology, published in 1678, is another example of the unparalleled outpouring of traditional astrological knowledge in 17th century England. Not until the 21st century has there been so much interest and enthusiasm for the precise predictions possible with traditional astrology.

Middleton provides a complete explanation of traditional horary technique in all its varied permutations. While traditional horary astrologers will always rely on Lilly's Christian Astrology Middleton adds important details and nuances, particularly in the example charts. These practical demonstrations of horary skill by the 17th century masters are invaluable for our modern practice as only by honing our technique with actual examples can we hope to approach the amazing predictive power of our predecessors.

As a bonus Practical Astrology also contains a list of rules for elections, explaining how to pick auspicious times for many activities including voyages, receiving money, short trips, buying or selling houses, finding buried treasure, gambling, marriage, long trips and friendship.

Renaissance Astrology Facsimile Editions is pleased to present Practical Astrology in its first publication in three hundred years. Another unique and valuable addition for traditional horary astrologers of today!

A fascinating look at late traditional astrological magic! 282 pages of original material with two facing pages of original per page. Facsimile version, very clean copy, 8.5 x 11 inch format.

The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies The Accidental Shaman: Journeys with Plant Teachers and Other Spirit Allies
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.

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...

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...

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...
