This book contains three books in itself: Zodiacal Course, Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology and The Manual of Practical Magic.

It is absolutely 100% practical book. For every astrological sign there is an exercise related to it. There is a powerful magic in this book.

You also find an authentic archaic calendar which was adulterated and based on this falsification, the modernist Astrology of Arithmetic has been erected. It is logical then, for modern Astrology, sustained on a false basis, to be a true failure.

Now it is our responsibility to restore the authentic ancient Astrology, and for this, it is of
necessary and essential urgency, to return once again to the legitimate Archaic Calendar.

A few quotes from the book:

The ten Sephiroth of the Kabbalah are the solar system. The seven inferior Sephiroth are the seven planets and the crown formed by Kether, Chokmah and Binah is the triune spiritual sun.

These ten Sephiroth are within us and we must learn to manipulate them. We must learn how to transfer ourselves to the different stars in order to know the horoscopes of people.

Conversing with the sidereal Gods, we will know our horoscope without the need for the much boasted arithmetic astrology.

Arithmetic astrology was for the "Black Age". The age of "Astro-Theurgy" has now arrived!

All the spiritualist schools talk to you about supra-sensible worlds, but we go beyond that because we are more practical. We teach our disciples how to enter those worlds in the Astral Body and even with the very body of flesh and bone, in a totally conscious and positive manner.

This matter about entering of the physical body into the ultra-sensible worlds appears to be strange to the theorists because they know nothing else but how to theorize; but to people who comprehend, this does not seem strange since, of course, this is as old as the world. In not so distant times, the physical body evolved and developed within the Astral World; so what is the big deal?

Astrology is one of the most ancient sciences on earth. The Egyptians, Aztecs, Mayans, Chaldeans and many others used astrology as a central part of their religion and mysticism. However, unfortunately nowadays what we know as `astrology' is nothing but a cheap fairground attraction designed to make money.

True esoteric astrology is not concerned with making money, or with complicated calculations, but with the development of the soul. In esoteric astrology, it is understood that the zodiacal and planetary forces (as well as representing forces in the external world) also represent forces and aspects in the spiritual life of the individual. Thus, when we work with the stars and planets, we work with elements in our own internal laboratory.

Practical Astrology is a collection of books written by Samael Aun Weor, the founder of the modern Gnostic Movement, whose subject is exclusively esoteric astrology. Thus, astrology is dealt with in its true sense- as a science for Self-knowledge and spiritual transformation.

Esoteric astrology is an ancient spiritual science which is as relevant for us today as it was three-thousand years ago. The three books which Practical Astrology collects are essential for anyone seeking Self-knowledge and a greater understanding of the spiritual path.

Gnostic Astrology, Initiatic Kabbalah, and the Awakening of the Consciousness.

This edition contains three books in its covers: Zodiacal Course, Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology and The Manual of Practical Magic.

In the first two books, Samael Aun Weor gives a complete discourse on the nature of Astrology. In today's world, the true nature and application of this science has been forgotten completely. In these works, Samael Aun Weor sheds the light of wisdom upon a science that is as ancient as the universe.

In the third book, Samael Aun Weor gives the secrets of Theurgy, White Magic, which is the science of influencing nature's phenomena in the internal and external worlds under the guidance of Divine Will and Intelligence.

Originally published in Spanish as "Curso Zodiacal" (1951), "Tratado Esoterico de Astrologia Hermetica" (1967), and "Manual de Magia Practica" (1954).
