In this book he combines his vast reading in the astrological literature of antiquity with the experience of his own busy practice. With a detailed description of what each of the planets and houses mean, and many example charts dissected and explained, this book is indispensible for any serious student of astrology.

"Astrological Judgment of Diseases from the Decumbiture of the Sick", by Nicholas Culpeper

 

Culpeper had a medical practice in London where he used his knowledge of medicine, herbs, and astrology to treat his patients - often, to his wife's frustration, for free. Rooted in his experience as a busy physician, this book gives insight into not only his methods, but also his outspoken radical beliefs and a unique and quite bizarre sense of humor.

"Complete Herbal and English Physician", by Nicholas Culpeper

 

Culpeper wanted to break the lucrative monopoly on medical treatment held by the College of Physicians, and brought the wrath of the establishment onto his head by trying to do this. As part of this aim, he wanted to teach Joe Public the medicinal properties of the plants that grow freely in field and hedgerow. In this book he describes the plants, with details of their characteristics and medicinal uses.

"William Lilly's History of His Life and Times", by William Lilly

 

When studying Lilly's 'Christian Astrology' it's both helpful and interesting to know something more about the man who wrote it. This autobiographical account was written late in life for his close friend, Elias Ashmole. Like all autobiographies, it is less than objective, but even this lack of objectivity is itself part of a fascinating glimpse into the mind of England's greatest astrologer.
