Gnostic Astrology

The plan of this course is to cover 3 main books:
  • Zodical Course (1931) by Arnoldo Krumm-Heller [available as Gnostic Rosicrucian Astrology]
  • Zodical Course (1951) by Samael Aun Weor [available in Practical Astrology]
  • Esoteric Treatise of Hermetic Astrology (1967) by Samael Aun Weor [also available in Practical Astrology]

We will read one chapter from each book during the time of the Zodical Sign (example: March 20th-April 19th read chapters on Aries). This will introduce the student to some interesting meditative practices which are useful to know.
