Three Hands Press's essay collection on historical astrology, and on astrology as a magical practice, is a valuable contribution to the field. The contributions include Alexander Cummins' review of astrological magic in seventeenth-century England, Demetra George's examination of the virtues of herbs in an early Greek botanical text, and Aaron Cheak's piece on animated god statues in Ancient Egypt. Spanning both meticulous scholarly investigation and practical techniques, this book is part an important new scholarly movement which brings historical astrology practice into a new focus as a part of the workings of magic and magicians.
