Christian Astrology Outline

Christian Astrology (1647) by William Lilly – Outlined by Rhys Chatham (2024)

In 2022 a study group of Book 2 of Christian Astrology (1647) by William Lilly was founded whose members consisted of graduates of the School of Traditional Astrology (STA).

As we worked through the book, line-by-renaissance-English-line, I took extensive notes, which i present here. The result is a detailed outline of the rules for horary given by Lilly in Christian Astrology, written in modern English.
