A new and complete illustration of the celestial science of astrology: or, The art of foretelling future events and contingencies by the aspects, positions, and influences of the heavenly bodies. [electronic resource] : Founded on natural philosophy, scripture, reason, and the mathematics. In four parts. Part I. An enquiry into, the defence of astrology; with an interesting discourse on natural and occult philosophy-in which the wisdom and omnipotence of God; the intellectual faculties of angels, spirits, and men; the order, harmony, sympathy, and wonderful properties of the celestial and terrestrial worlds; the signs, influences, and effects of the heavenly bodies upon all animal, vegetable, and mineral substances; the number of the spheres; the method of erecting the horoscope to cast nativities; and the doctrine of horary questions, are clearly exemplified and explained. Part II. Examples for acquiring a practical knowledge of astrology, with rules for calculating, rectifying, and judging nativities; by which the reader is enabled to discover, with precision and accuracy, every material incident of his future life and furtune. Illustrated by a variety of new, entertaining, and curious questions, lately resolved, upon every material occur...ence in public and private life. With a collection of the most remarkable nativities that have been cast for kings, princes, and other eminent men, by the most celebrated proffessors of this science, in all ages of the world; with astonishing instances of their exact completion. Part III. Meteorological astrology defined and explained: wherein certain rules are laid down for prejudging the revolutions, vicissitudes, and misfortunes, with which every part of the habitable world may be occasionally threatened. General effects produced by great conjunctions, eclipses, transits, comets, blazing stars, and other extraordinary phænomena; with the art of calculating eclipses, tides, and weather, for any number of years to come. To which is added, a collection of improved tables, contrived to answer all the purposes of astronomical calculations. Part IV. The distinction between astrology, and the diabolical practice of exorcism; in which the methods used for raising up and consulting spirits, are laid open, with various, instances of their compacts with wicked men. Account off applications and spirits; including a general display of the mysteries of witchcraft, divination, charms, and necromancy. Compiled from a series of intente study and application, and founded on real examples and experience. By Ebenezer Sibly, Astro, Philo. Embellished with curious copper-plates.
