This is one of the most recognized Grimoires, especially of astrological magic and correspondences. It is certainly a 'must have' text for any esotericist with a serious library collection. However, it is not a recipe book and you cannot just choose something and work through it hoping for a result. However, if you are intent on extending your astrological correspondences, a very useful thing to do, then you will find this book most helpful, as well as an interesting read in itself.

Firstly this is the best of all versions of The Picatrix which has been published. Do not bother with any others. As an occult text it is essential for any serious occultist, and any occult library which dosent have it is incomplete. Given that all the famous medieval grimoires are sourced from this, even if only generically, it is surprising The Picatrix isnt more famous. Wether magus, witch, or for that matter any discipline within the occult - this is an essential purchase. If you ever meet someone who claims to be an occultist and hasnt heard of The Picatrix - view them with great suspicion !

Excellent edition, it is clearly evident in the text that the authors have extensively researched this classical text. The paper is also extremely good quality and the introduction to the work is insightful. A great edition to any occult library and is a great companion to the works of Agrippa. There are spells in the book and if you can get hold of human brains you may be able to make a sleeping potion! The astrological and historical knowledge in this book is however invaluable. As with any personal occult library you pick the wheat from the chaf, which is why you have to collect all the magical texts you can. I would definitely recommend. Happy reading. Blessings.

A difficult read with lots of archaic, ancient language but very interesting regardless. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in ancient astrology, eastern magic or the occult in general. A great addition to anyone's library.

My book smells of Incense... Still can't tell if I like the incense though.

Its also impossible to make sense out of it, but I was expecting that. Overall the book itself is good quality

If the modern pagan/new age fluffy people want to know what magic is really like, then get yourselves a copy of this book. Even with the changes that time brings about, you can learn a lot about the ruthless and amoral attitude without which anyone claiming to be a magician is not the charlatan they should be, but a mere self-deluded fraud.
