Christian Astrology

By William Lilly

This is a three-volume tome. The only volume I have transferred to disk at this point is the first one. I have tried to remain as faithful to the original as possible by preserving the peculiarities of spelling, punctuation, and syntax. I have also kept the page numbering exactly as I found it, which means pages end before they're filled, others remain unnumbered, and so on. If any typos of my own have crept in--and it seems inevitable that they will--let me know and I will correct them.

This document is zipped using Winzip, so you will need a zip-compatible decompression utility to access the document. You can download Winzip at It is formatted and saved in Word 97. The document can be printed, but is password protected against modification.

The Doctrine of Horary Questions

By John Gadbury

This is a short work of about 65 pages, full of useful information for horary astrologers. Again, I've preserved the vagaries of Gadbury's spelling, and the page number of the source book (it starts on page 235).

I've embedded the astrological fonts within the document, so you should not have to download the fonts (from the link above) to read this document. You may want to, anyway, though.

A Brief and Most Easy Introduction to the Astrological Judgement of the Stars

by Claudius Dariot

A 97-page treatise on horary electional astrology, 1583. Due to the size of the file (over 3 megs), and the limited space Tripod provides me, I've uploaded the file to my Horary Hour e-mail list's Files area. The book is, therefore, available only to list members. This is a free e-mail list for horary astrology students/practitioners, not an advertising scam.

by Guido Bonatus

The aphorisms of Bonatus, with annotations by William Lilly and Henry Coley.

A Plea for Charity

I plan to put up as many books as possible. This takes a great deal of time, and I get no remuneration for it. If you enjoy the free services I offer at this site, please consider making a donation to one of the following organizations. They support causes I feel strongly about.

The National Rifle Association. You know them, and love them!

Greenpeace. You know them, and love them, too!

Gun Owners of America--Another gun owners' rights lobbying organization, less well-known than the NRA, and less compromising.

The Sierra Club.

ZPG--Zero Population Growth.

Karen Beasely Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Center. The name says it all. This is a small, family operation, so money you give probably will go primarily to the animal, not administrative costs.

American Tortoise Rescue. Again, just what the name says, located in Malibu, CA.
