This book is a little gem: why? There are snippets here and there in other books about Planetary Magick but you have to work out the rest of it yourself, as the infomrationis either too basic or incomplete. Now this book, ok, it may look a slim book, ut within its pages is everything you need, plus more, that you wanted to know about working with the Planets.
The authors describe the seven Classical Planets, mainly as they were the planets most referred to and of course, our days of the week are named after them; but the book also has a section on the 3 outer planets, which tend to get ignored. This section includes magickal squares and other relevant information (sure, it would have been nice for them to have had the full treatment the other planets get!)
In brief, you have:
descriptions of the Planetary Energies
descriptions of the the Planetary Deities
descriptions of the Olympian spirits AND how to work with them
Planetary Hours and Days
and the list goes on.....
If you want to work magick with the help of the Planets, then this is your book.
