Important books for the practicing medical astrologer who diagnoses and treats.
|Classical Medical Astrology|
by Oscar Hofman
In this book you will find the description of an accurate method of humoral horary diagnosis in detail. Horary diagnosis has come of age.This book also addresses a number of medical astrological issues including treatment, elections and the basic theory of horary astrology, and the theory of elements.
|The Astrological Judgement and Practice of Physick|
by Richard Saunders
A must for producing accurate horary diagnosis. It contains descriptions of the humoral cause of illness for each planet in every zodiac sign.The diagnostic method outlined in this book is faulty though — the liver is important but certainly is not central to all health problems. I recommend using the methods outlined in Oscar Hofman’s book mentioned above which come from William Lilly and we clarified by John Frawley in his “The Horary Textbook”.
|The Traditional Healer’s Handbook|
by Hakim G. M. Chishti
This book is on Unani medicine whose paradigm is matched neatly by the astrological paradigm of the elements.It contains a practical list of foods and herbs according ot their humoral qualities and treatment methods for various conditions.
|Culpeper’s Complete Herbal|
by Nicholas Culpeper
Herbal reference with planetary and some humoral information.
|The Horary Textbook|
by John Frawley
The chapter on medical astrology is a must.
|The Real Astrology|
by John Frawley
Contains some nice examples of medical charts, and intelligent thoughts on traditional healing.
|The Michael Handbook|
Contains information on psychological delineation and specific information about the manifestations of house 12. There is no astrology in this book. However, if you address house 12 in your astrological work you will know what to do with it.
