Introduction to the Astrological Magic Course

The newly upgraded version IV of the Astrological Magic Course teaches the theory and practice of traditional astrological talismans on CD or via download with written lessons, texts and video. The course is a complete toolkit for traditional astrological magic and the magic of Picatrix. The CD version includes a free copy of the Complete Picatrix.

Students who successfully complete the Astrological Magic Course will be able to elect times for and construct a wide variety of astrological talismans, including planetary, lunar mansion, fixed star, decan, house, horary and natal talismans. Here is a video on taking Renaissance Astrology courses.

The Course teaches how to understand and put into practice the astrological magic of Picatrix, Cornelius Agrippa, Marsilio Ficino and the Harranian Sabian sage Thabit Ibn Qurra. All of the electional astrology and ritual necessary to make talismans is taught in the course and no prior knowledge of magic or astrology is required.

The material presented in the Astrological Magic Course is difficult and requires commitment to master. While the course includes videos, the majority of the instruction takes place through written lessons and books. All lessons have homework and all homework is personally corrected by Christopher Warnock, a leading traditional astrologer and astrological magician, who personally teaches all students. Students work through the lessons in order and can ask whatever questions they need to complete the current lesson. There are no grades or deadlines for completion of the lessons or course as a whole. Graduates of the Astrological Magic Course receive a certificate of completion.

Students of the previous version of the Astrological Magic Course can upgrade to the new version IV if they wish or continue with version III. Contact me for upgrade instructions.
