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.
