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, the basic theory of horary astrology, and the theory of the 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 method outlined in Oscar Hofman’s book mentioned above which comes from William Lilly and has been clarified by John Frawley in “The Horary Textbook”.
