But in the meantime, some traditional astrology books I've been loving.

The Moment of Astrology by Geoffrey Cornelius (I love this book so much I made Enrique buy a copy!)
All of John Frawley's books: The Real Astrology, Real Astrology Appiled, Horary Textbook etc. Really thrilling interesting stuff.
Classical Astrology for Modern Living by J. Lee Lehman
Olivia Barclay's Horary Astrology Rediscovered.
Temperament - Astrology's Forgotten Key by Dorian Gieseler Greenbaum
Astrological Roots: The Hellenistic Legacy by Joseph Crane
A good edition of Lilly's Christian Astrology which is really the last great premodern astrological text
Book of Instructions in the Elements of the Art of Astrology by Al Biruni
That's a hell of a list, bro.
I used to have the Lehman - made me a wee bit crazy. The Greenbaum sounds interesting, and I think I'm familiar with that Cornelius fellow - I vaguely remember something about a web essay about astrology as (wait for it) DIVINATION and how scandalous that essay was. (this was several years back).

I don't have the dough to spring for more books than I already have, but will keep these in mind.. Perhaps now that I'm older and wiser I'll be able to grasp where this stuff is going.

Here's a question: why not use the sidereal zodiac in horary, rather than the tropical? and what house system to use?
