1. Hellenistiske tekster (græsk)

VOL. I: PAULUS ALEXANDRINUS. INTRODUCTION TO ASTROLOGY. (Complete). 378 A.D.

Composed as an introduction for his son, and representing the main line of the tradition, it is the best way to get an overview of the major themes and concepts of Hellenistic astrology. It exhibits considerable sensitivity to the subtleties of the astrological language.

VOL. IIa: ANONYMOUS OF 379. ON THE FIXED STARS.

A substantial chunk survives of this ambitious treatise, including elaborate natal delineations for 30 fixed stars when on the angles and when configured with the planets. The only work of its kind. --PLUS--

VOL. IIb: ANTIOCHUS OF ATHENS. FRAGMENTS FROM HIS THESAURUS.

2nd century A.D. The best source for the definition and clarification of specialized astrological terminology taken for granted by Ptolemy and others.

VOL. III: PTOLEMY. PHASES OF THE FIXED STARS. Circa 150 A.D.

Astrological weather prediction based on heliacal risings & settings of 30 fixed stars, showing evidence of having been excised from the Almagest--perhaps censored? Complete calendar of predictions for every day of the Alexandrian year.

Hints at the broader philosophical importance of the phasis concept.

VOL. IV: VETTIUS VALENS. ANTHOLOGY, Bk I. 160 A. D.

The most definitive compendium of antiquity containing a critical assessment of the astrological thought of Valens' predecessors, thereby preserving much ancient astrology for posterity. Notable for its highly personal style and its emphasis on experience rather than theory alone. Book 1 contains extensive treatments of the nature and effects of the planets singly, two by two, and three by three. Similarly complete treatments of the 12 signs, and many other matters.

VOL. V: PTOLEMY. TETRABIBLOS, Bk I. Circa 150 A.D.

A marvel of literary architecture, badly in need of a new translation. Book I first argues eloquently for the possibility and usefulness of astrology, and then presents Ptolemy's "scientific" framework for astrology within the context of Aristotelean natural philosophy. Deals with the special natures of the planets, signs, and configurations. Derives the dignities with reference to a tropical zodiac.

VOL. VI: HEPHAESTIO OF THEBES. COMPENDIUM, Bk I. 380 A.D.

Treats of general principles of astrology & universal astrology, blending Ptolemy with Dorotheus and others. Highly interesting delineations of the decans. Also contains a very long excerpt from Nechepso/Petosiris on detailed eclipse delineation. Preserves an ancient Egyptian method of prediction using the Dog-Star alone

VOL. VII: VETTIUS VALENS. ANTHOLOGY, Bk II.

On the general subject of happiness and good fortune. Rough trimester predictions based on trigon rulers. Houses, Lots, and a derived house system reckoned not from the Ascendant but from the Lot of Fortune, with emphasis on the Place of Acquisition. Aspect delineation. Numerous other subjects. All illustrated with many sample charts.

VOL. VIII: VETTIUS VALENS. ANTHOLOGY, Bk III.

On the general subject of length of life. The method of primary directions. The bound ruler. The combination of ascensional times with planetary periods. Prenatal new and full moons. Numerous examples of these life expectancy calculations. A large amount of dense but suggestive material on numerous alternative traditions.

VOL. IX: TEACHINGS ON TRANSITS.

The four surviving Greek texts on transit delineation, attributed to Dorotheus Orpheus, Anubio,and Valens. Some highly unexpected delineations suggest a different underlying principle.

Indications as to the context in which transits were employed, and when they were to be taken into account.

VOL. X: THE ASTROLOGICAL RECORD OF THE EARLY SAGES IN GREEK.

All the material found in the CCAG from astrologers who preceded Dorotheus, Valens, and Ptolemy or who seem to be independent of them. Hermes, Nechepso/Petosiris, Critodemus, "Zoroaster", "Pythagoras", Timaeus, Thrasyllus, Balbillus, & numerous others are represented. Most of it is katarchic or inceptional astrology

VOL. XI: VETTIUS VALENS. ANTHOLOGY, Bk IV.

Several important systems of time-lords, or planetary periods rulers for different periods of the natives's life, found nowhere else in the literature, with extensive commentary, delineations, and examples by Valens. This may be the most important material we have recovered to date.

VOL. XII: PTOLEMY. TETRABIBLOS, Bk III.

Genethliacal astrology and predictions for the characteristic events in human life, mainly using Ptolemy's preferred method of planetary significators. Contains the notoriously obscure treatment of primary directions and length of life. We have made extensive annotations guided by the commentary of Hephaistio.

VOL. XIII: VETTIUS VALENS.ANTHOLOGY, Bks V & VI.

Keys to the use of the time-lords. Much material on climactierical years, with some unusual material derived from Critodemus. Much more interpretive material and a multitude of examples.

VOL. XIV: PTOLEMY. TETRABIBLOS, Bk IV.

The completion of his tretment of natal astrology by topics. Concludes with his heirarchy of predictive techniques, featuring the use of prmary directions to "turn on" time-lords. Editors notes includes an explanation of the predominant Hellenistic version of oriental/occidental and solar phase.

VOL. XV: HEPHAESTIO OF THEBES. COMPENDIUM, Bk II. Rectification.

Treatment of various topics in human life according to Ptolemy, Dorotheus and others. Delineation of the time-lord method of Decennials.
