Christian Astrology

Christian Astrology, written in 1647 by the English astrologer William Lilly, is considered to be one of the most important seminal works of Western astrology. William Lilly successively treats the rules of western astrology, horary astrology and 'nativities', about erecting and analysing a birth chart in natal astrology. He wrote the book when he was ill and had to stay at home. Running away from the plague in London, he spent a year in the countryside to study, reflect, and write Christian Astrology.

Lilly himself explains that he was influenced among others by Ptolemy's Quadripartitum (Tetrabiblos), De occulta philosophia by Agrippa, De Astronima Tractarus 10 by Guido Bonatti, 120 Aphorismi of John Dee, Medicina Catholica by Robert Fludd, Epitomes Astronomiae by Johan Kepler and Paracelsus' De Meteoris, all of which are mentioned in the appendix of Christian Astrology.

The modern edition of Christian Astrology consists of three volumes:

  1. Book 1: An Introduction to Astrology
  2. Book 2: The Resolution of all manners of Questions and Demands
  3. Book 3: An Easie and Plaine Method How to Judge Upon Nativities


Book 1

Introduction to Astrology

Lilly referred to this book as a course for astrology students in which he expounds the general principles of astrology. Topics covered:

  • the use of the ephemeris
  • preparing the horoscope
  • the nature of the 12 signs of the zodiac
  • the nature of the planets
  • the nature of the 12 houses

Book 2

About the solution of many questions and issues

This part of Lilly's work is a methodical instruction the student must follow to be able to answer all kinds of questions - on disease, wealth, marriage choices, travel, etc. - using the techniques of horary astrology. Lilly includes 35 examples of such questions. He gives a detailed explanation of the procedure to be followed and elaborates on all elements that are important in the analysis. The act of choosing the right "significator" is especially important, as well as choosing the right house and its ruler that are involved.

Book 3

An easy and clear method for the natal chart

In this third part "How to judge upon Nativities' William Lilly discusses the interpretation of the natal chart.

He treatment includes the following topics:

  • determining body build, shape, color and intelligence of the unborn
  • if the person will be born rich, which diseases he will likely suffer from, and whether he will suffer a violent death, his marriage, the number of spouses, their origin, his children and what will be the most appropriate career
  • In the section on primary directions (predictions by 'advancing' the birth planets according to a formula) Lilly gives advice on the use of solar returns, transits and the signification of the aspects the planets make.

In addition, he also gives clues about how these techniques can be used to 'correct' a natal chart in case the time of birth is not exactly known to the astrologer. This he finds to be of major importance to make accurate predictions.

fclves be i1gnih"cator*,are ever unfortunate : where remember, ihit a Gentleman enquires ufually , if he fhall lave his health, and live: jocundly in fuch or fuch a Country or City ; the Mcr-

  • bjnr he wholly aimes at Trade , and the ehttcafe of his Stock,

therefore in the Merchants Ligiire you mult conhder the Coumry or City fubject to the Sign of the fecond houfe, or where rlv: Part of Fortune is, or Lord of the fecond isyind which h molt fortified, and thit her let him Trade.

C H A IV X V II Iv Of the Etfefltiali Dignities of the Planets,

1 {e cxatf way of judicature in Attrolog y is , firft, by being

  • pcrfed in the nature of the Timers and Signs.

' Secondly ,by knowing the Urength, fortitude o; debilility of dragnets, Significators, and a well poyfmg of them and their jlpe^ts and feverall mixtures, in your judgment. ^ .

Thirdly , by rightly applying the influence of the. posture of Heavan t retted /.and the Planets afpefls to one another at the rime, of the Quettion, according to mtmullfand not enforced; maximes of Art; for by how much you endeavour to flrama judgment beyond nature , by fo much the more you augment yom Ktrour.

A Pl.mec is then faid to be really Arcng whin he hath many llfcniial dignities, which are known, by hi. being cither in his Houfe , iixAlcation , TripHcky , Tuvne or Face , at time of cwtii-.o a>e Figure. As for.txample :

In any Scheam of Heaven, if you find a PI met in any of £(f c ,,tiJ thole Signs we call his houfe or houfes , h: is then etfentially t i\gm t jby ihong , 'and we allow fo: that I'm i ; as h in' v? , % m Houfe.

i^t- ........

h\ wemctit , when a Planet or Signihcator is in his own houfe > it reprefents a man in fuch a condition , as that he is Lord of his own houfe , e&\te and fortune ; or a man. wanting very little of the Gqods of this world , or it tels you the man is b a very happy ttate or condition ; this will be t rue , unle lie the' N- ^ lignill-

If he be in th it Sign wherein lis is exrfred , you may allow him tour dignities efl'entiali , whether 1* be Mttc^wryifc gree of his exaliion, Vea or not i as o* in v* or U M « .

Ti' the fipnificaior'bi in his exaltation, and no wave* wipe- ditcd, but Angular ; it prefents a perTon of haughty condition, arrogant , aituming inore unto him then his due ; foi it s obftr- ved,tne Planets in lo ne part of the Zodiack doe more evident- ly declare their effet^s then in others ; and I conceive this tola m thofe Sipns and degrees where fixed Starres or the Uvm na- ture with "the PI met, are more in number, and neeror ths

EchptKk^ i||anvof thofc Signs which are alotted him for his , Tfiplicitv, he hath allowed him three dignities : but herein you i mult bs cautious ; as for example s In a Quellion, Nattvi- | ty 5 or the like , if you find the 0 irt Y , and the Queihon , ot Nativity, or Scheam erected be by night, and you would ex. amine the 0 his fortitudes, he Hull have four dignities f«  beine in his exaltation, which continues through the Sign; bur lie (halt not be allowed any dignity , as being m hit ttf < ! city ; for by night the 0 ruletluiot the fiery ; I notary bat % who had he been in place of the 0 , arte by night , mull have had allowed him three dignities ■: and this doe gene NlM in all the Planets , 6 excepted , who night and day ruietfci*

any Planet be in thole degrees we tf&i for his Terms, I >ve allow him two dignities j as whether day or night , it yv. in one, two, three or four- &c decrees of Y, he is then in M own Terms, and mult have two dignities therefore ; and loSM any of the lira eight degrees of b, &c. \ I

A Planet having lictle or no dignity, bur by being in his De- mrti ot Ftcc , is alnottlike a man ready to be turned out of door^s , having much acjoe to maintaine himfelf in credit and rcriiration • and in Genealogies it reprefents a l amily ;it the iiltgjfi> , even as good as cjuite decayed , hardly able to luppprt

Rccnticn. * Reception is when two Planets that ace figmficators ia ah/ Queilion or matter., are in each others dignity, j asp mH y and'c? in «a ; here is. reception of thefe tWo Planets by Hok«. " fes; and certainly this is the UrongefUnd bettof all rerepii., ens. It may be by triplicity, term* or face,, or any effentull dig- niry ; as $ in Y., and 0 in b ; here is reception by tnphcity, if the Quellion or Nativity be by, day: fotfm ihe^ofYjatf S in , the 1 6.' of u ; herj. isrcoepcioriby term ,.o* being in the terms of , and ilie in his terms. ... ■ ■

The ufc of this is much : for many times when as theeffoft- in^ of a matter is derived t>y the 1 Afpu&syor .when the fignifh caton h.we no Afpect to each other, or < when it Teems very doubtfull what its promifed by , O or cf of the fignificatots, yet if mutuall Reception happen betwixt the principal iligni- h'cators > the broughc,co pafond that wichouLany great trouble, and fuddenly to the.content of bofh parties.

A. Planet is then faid to be Perigrine , when he 19 in the da- erees'of. any Sign wherein he h.ifli no eflentiall dignity : As )l in the tenth degree of Y , that Sign being not his Houfe, Exaltation, or of his Triplicity, or he having in that degree either Term or Faces , he is then faid to be Peregrine ; hadhc been in. 2*7,2$,^. of Y> he could, not be termed Peregrine, bscaufe then he is in his ovyn T e * m - ; •

However , that which is principally conlidsrable , find ought, if pofliblcto be obtained , is', juditioufly to examine the Nati vilics of the Parents of the Childe , and whether the Signifies urs of Children in them arc ttrong yea or not ; for as the good- nc tie of fruit depends upon the temperament of the root, fo

do dye upon a. fmall iickneftc , &c. hue fich they arc nor ufu- ally attainable, yow may proceed according to the Method fol- lowing : I : !ii>, confider the degree afcending, which molt properly hath lignificatiun of Life, whether it be . fortunate or not \ its then forcu.iate when in the tcrmcs or 11 gn , or in the ¥ 01 A of a benevolent Planet ; and fo on the contrary unfortunate , when tithe r locally an infortline vitiates the degree afcending , orb/ hislJ or f afpeft « or when many violent fixed Stars of the nv» ture of the Lord of the eight, do at ife with the degree afcend- ing , or are wch or neer the Luminary of the time.
