Horary Astrology Re-Examined
 

The Possibility or Impossibility of the Matter Propounded

 

This is a detailed, informative and scholarly work, demonstrating clearly and unambiguously that traditional astrological doctrine is applicable to all astrology: there is no division between different ‘branches’. Whether a Nativity or Question is under consideration, the process of evaluation is the same, what Coley calls the “short comprehensive and approved rules of Art”. Ptolemy, Masha-allah, Abu Ma’shar, Abu ‘Ali Al-Khayyat, Al Biruni, Bonatti, Dariot, Morin and Lilly are just some of the authors referred to. Where there are doubts arising through a poor translation, unsympathetic translator or other factors, clarification is provided. The focus of this book is practical rather than philosophical. Rather than seeking to change or modify the doctrine handed down by our ancestors, or denying that astrology is about prediction, an attempt is made to identify the most worthwhile tools and techniques. In the process, we gain a deeper understanding of our Art and recognize that astrologers must “come to grips with their history.. like an isolated ethnic group, they need the courage of their identity in a hostile world.” (Annabella Kitson, Astrology Quarterly)
