But Picatrix goes beyond what you would expect from a grimoire, it's just not sets of practical recipes, though lord knows there is lots and lots of practical info. Picatrix explains Hermetic and Neo-platonic philosophy and how talismans work, logically and coherently. This is also why this book was prized by the highest of high mages. As John likes to say, Picatrix truly represents the rocket science of the day. Astrological magic is complex, but this complexity gives it such great scope and great power.

De Imaginibus, "On Images" is, after Picatrix, the most important text for medieval and Renaissance astrological magic. De Imaginibus is accepted as the work of the Harranian Sabian sage Thabit Ibn Qurra. Written in the 9th century A.D. and the product of the Neoplatonic and Hermetic wisdom of the Harranian Sabians, the book was a key source for the Picatrix as well as being consulted by Albertus Magnus, Marsilio Ficino and Cornelius Agrippa.
De Imaginibus represents the height of astrological magic technique and goes far beyond merely planetary talismans in using the full range of traditional astrological technique developed by the sophisticated Harranian Sabians. De Imaginibus explains how to create house based talismans, how to use horary questions to forecast and anchor talismans and how to tune talismans to individual natal charts.
The translator, John Michael Greer, is a noted Latinist and esoteric author. He is the co-translator of the Complete Picatrix. This translation was made from Francis Carmody's Latin critical edition of the astronomical works of Thabit Ibn Qurra and contains two variant texts along with extensive commentary by Christopher Warnock, the leading astrological magician and includes examples of talisman elections using Thabit's methods.
The translation contains two complete variant manuscripts of De Imaginibus, plus the shorter paraphrase contained in Cornelius Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy plus an updated commentary by Christopher Warnock, a leading contemporary practitioner of traditional astrological magic. This edition also contains beautiful illustrations by the artist and contemporary mage Robert Place. This is an entirely revised translation from the earlier Renaissance Astrology edition of De Imaginibus translated by Christopher Warnock.
De Imaginibus is divided in the the
following nine chapters:
On the Expulsion of Scorpions and Other Pests
Example of the Destruction of a City
Images for Receiving Wealth from Another
Images for Profit from your own Efforts
Of Principalities and Prelacies
Conversion of the King to Affection or Displaying Fellowship
Fourth Part: Images for Concord and Separation and Love Between Two People
The Form in Which the Image is Cast
The commentary explains not only the practical application of the teachings of De Imaginibus on the preparation of talismans, but also the deeper philosophical and spiritual significance of the work, which truly is an important guide to Hermeticism as a Practical Path to Gnosis, the mystic union with the Divine.
John Michael Greer's translation of Astral High Magic: De Imaginibus of Thabit Ibn Qurra is 73 pages, in 6 inch by 9 inch print on demand black and white in the Amazon paperback edition witb a list price of $19.95 or the or Amazon Kindle editions for $9.99.

Johannes Angelus' Astrological Optics, published in 1655, is a fascinating look at traditional natal astrology. What is most interesting about it is the listing of images for each of the 360 degrees of the Zodiac. In the 9th degree of Libra, for example, the image is a man holding a sword over his head in his right hand. "It signifies a litigious person." Astrological Optics at 33. By comparing the degree rising in a natal chart we can get useful information about the person and their character. However, this 360 degree listing has an even more enthralling use, as the basis for personalized talismans. By using these degree images we can personalize and focus a talisman to a very degree of a person's natal chart. Fantastic!
As a bonus Astrological Optics also provides a complete description of the meaning of each of the 7 planets in the 12 houses and the 12 signs, plus the aspects of each planet with Mercury and the meaning of the Ascendant in each of the 12 signs.

The book of natural and talismanic magic known as the Kyranides or Cyranides, is one of the most important works of technical Hermetica, the practical magical, astrological and alchemical works attributed to the sage Hermes Trismegistus. The eminent scholar of Hermeticism, Garth Fowden, describes the Kyranides as the most important source for the Hermetic doctrine of the occult virtues and powers. The Kyranides is a compilation of several earlier works, notably the treatise of Harpocration and is truly an ancient text, dating to between the 2nd and 4th centuries A.D.
The Kyranides is divided into four books, loosely organized by the letters of the Greek alphabet. Each chapter contains the magical and occult properties of animals, birds, plants and stones beginning with that letter, plus the first book includes instructions for talismans using the appropriate plants, animals and stones. This translation of the Cyranides was made in 1685 and is the only complete translation available in English of this key Hermetic text.
An invaluable source for Hermetic and talismanic magic and the occult virtues of plants, animals, birds and stones. 196 pages of original material in a facsimile version of the 1685 original. very clean copy, 8.5 x 11 inch paperback. $16.95 plus shipping. Order Kyranides.
This is an an English translation, published in 1698, of Israel Hibner's Mysterium Sigillorum, Herbarum and Lapidum, "The Mysteries of Sigils, Herbs and Stones."
Hibner's Mysterium Sigillorum is a very rare example of a text in English on astrological magic that was actually published rather than circulating in manuscript. It is also a very unusual example of a very late astrological magic text coming very near the end of the 17th century.
The book includes: the Diseases of the Planets; Herbs, Roots and Trees of the Planets and the Invention, Knowledge and Uses of Herbs. The most interesting section is on the sigils of the seven planets. Hibner includes unique illustrations and instructions for constructing planetary talismans using the visible images of the planets.

William Thrasher's Jubar Astrologicum, published in 1671, provides a complete introduction to the basics of traditional astrology, explaining the essential dignity system, aspects, the assignment of houses and other key facets common to all types of traditional astrology.
In addition, however, Jubar Astrologicum also gives complete instructions for answering horary questions for each of the twelve houses, including questions of wealth, property, birth, illness, marriage, partnership, death, travel, career and even witchcraft and curses.
One of the most useful features of Jubar Astrologicum is Thrasher's delineation of numerous example charts, providing invaluable practical insight to horary analysis.
