Notice To The Fourth Edition

It was in the spring of 1936 36 years ago now that the first edition of this book appeared. Since then, Jupiter has completed three revolutions. Now the reader may ask what relation does Jupiter have to the subject of this book, the Moon and the Lunar Zodiac It was in the afternoon of January 20, 1936 that I delivered my manuscript to the printer (unfortunately I no longer remember the exact moment). On that day the Moon was applying to a conjunction with Jupiter in the XX Lunar Mansion,...

According To Belot

Jean Belot, pastor at Milmonts, professor of divine and celestial sciences ' published, at the beginning of the XVII ccntury, a curious attempt at a synthesis of the Divinatory sciences, in which he relied on Raymond Lully and C. Agrippa equally as much as on Gerard of Cremona, thus demonstrating the extent and eclecticism of his scholarship at the same time that he proves the daring and modernism of his ideas. (After all, in one of his chapters he discusses, apropos of physiognomy, natural...

The Houses Of The Invisible Moon

Mythology, that wonderful bible of all the traditional sciences, which conceals all the laws of Astrology under the transparent veil of symbols, offers a whole series of lunar goddesses, each one with her own features, which connects each to different parts of the lunar orbit. Earlier, we located Ceres in the Ninth and Tenth Houses, and Diana, in the Eleventh, Twelfth, and Thirteenth.

Few More Fragments Of Lunar Astrology

Lunar Astrology forms a totality so vast that this book could not pretend to exhaust the subject, especially when its author is an isolated investigator, not possessing the means of a Frazer to mobilize a whole team to assemble dat he needs, on the five continents. Thus, without repeating here material published elsewhere especially in VAstrologie chez les Mayas et les Azteques and in the articles of the magazine Cahiers Astrologiques 2, 1946 and 42, 1953), many things remain to be said about...

The Interpretations Of The Twentyeight Mansions In Different Traditions

The Lunar Zodiac

Robert Ambelain Circle

The significations inscribed in the circle summarize the data from Pic-atrix, Arab astrologer and doctor, who lived in Spain in the XIII Century, and whose works were translated into Spanish around 1256, by order of Alphonse X, king of Castille. This plate is taken from Secrets, 26. It is even possible that this peculiarity of the thirteenth Mansion extends a little beyond its limits. A, Stavisky17, for example, had the Moon in Virgo 19 427 which is 2 5 outside of this Mansion. In any case,...

Introduction

There is a gap in modern Astrology, a striking inconsistency the role assigned to the Moon. The Sun and the Moon have visible discs of the same size. Their influence on life on our globe easily exceeds the influences of the planets, since the luminaries, as it were, regulate this life. Are they not the basis of all calendars In the Astrology of the Far East, they are not part of the planetary hierarchy, because they are Yang, the White Dragon, the active principle, and Yin, the Black Dragon,...

Chandranadi Cast

Will this book by Alexander Volguine add something to Astrology that is, some original and even indispensable element I can reply without hesitation Yes Absolutely Yes, without the slightest doubt It is deplorable that so many texts of modern Astrology shame lessly copy their predecessors, usually duplicating more error than truth.
