9781933303024: Christian Astrology, Books 1 and 2

Named "Christian" to avoid hassles (some things never change), this is the most famous, the most celebrated astrology book in the English language. It has been prized by students ever since its first publication in 1647. The Horary Astrology in these pages, in the hands of a master, is no mere parlour game. It is demanding and precise, combining science and art. Properly used, it will give answer to any well-defined question. William Lilly, famous throughout England for his almanacs & forecasts (he predicted London's Great Fire of 1666), lived during the English Civil War & was a minor historical figure in it. Into his studio came the rich and poor, nobles and commoners, with problems great and small. This new edition restores Lilly's original page layouts, with marginalia. Modern spelling throughout, this edition includes Lilly's bibliography, his original index & a new glossary. Also includes his original woodblock charts, and their modern versions. This is Lilly's great work as he himself knew it. In this volume: Book 1, An Introduction to Astrology, containing the use of an ephemeris; the erecting of a scheme of heaven; nature of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, of the planets; with a most easy introduction to the whole art of astrology. Book 2, The Resolution of All Manner of Questions, by a most methodical way, instructs the student how to judge or resolve all manner of questions contingent unto man, viz, of health, sickness, riches, marriage, preferment, journeys, etc. Some 35 questions inserted and judged.

About the Author:

William Lilly, 1602-1681, famous throughout England for his almanacs & forecasts (he predicted London’s Great Fire of 1666), lived during the English Civil War & was a minor historical figure in it. He was the most outstanding English astrologer who ever lived. Many have heard of his masterpiece, Christian Astrology, though, until now, few have seen it. It has attracted publishers throughout the centuries, but the first complete reprinting of his great work occurred only in 1985.

In addition to Christian Astrology, Lilly wrote numerous pamphlets & broadsides as well as an autobiography.

Review:

Beautifully produced, built to last, and reproducing the original more accurately than other modern-type editions. -- John Frawley, The Mountain Astrologer, Dec-Jan 2005
