Learn Hellenistic Astrology — We offer two independent but complementary ways of learning Hellenistic astrology. You can see the original astrology of the West gradually reveal itself by subscribing to the new translation series of Hellenistic astrological texts The Astrological Record of the Early Sages (TARES). Available later this year, A Basic Course in Hellenistic Astrology in audio will offer a distillation and overview of the original Hellenistic system.
Robert Schmidt has started a new series of weekend Hellenistic Astrological Intensives in the tradition of the PHASE Lectures from the early research phase of the project. The latest results of our on-going research into the original concepts and metaphysical underpinnings of Hellenistic astrology are presented in Cumberland, MD Check our announcements for upcoming intensives, which you should attend if at all possible. Recordings from these events are available.
As the new translations, which will include virtually all of the surviving Hellenistic astrological texts, will take several years for the entire series to be published, we are preparing a selection of key texts covering the entire system of Hellenistic natal astrology. They will be released in June 2009 as Hellenistic Natal Astrology: A Sourcebook.
From the Archives — We have very limited quantities of translations remaining from our earlier research phase. All of the Greek/Hellenistic translations will continue to be available as reprints until they are replaced by the new and revised translations of TARES. You can still see a record of what we accomplished in the archives. We do still have some Medieval translations available. These will not be reprinted in their present form, or revised any time soon, so buy them while they last.
Still Thought-Provoking — If you have a philosophical bent, consider our PHASE Lectures, which have been digitally remastered and are now available in Mp3 format CDs. These unique workshops were explorations into the broader “problem of astrology” from a variety perspectives: philosophical, historical, scientific, and epistemological. They are also where we first began to see the value of Hellenistic astrological concepts for providing access points to some of the thornier issues connected with this problem.
