Welcome to Renaissance Astrology, the premier website for traditional astrology and astrological magic since 2000. Astrology, a spiritual science, is the study of the cycles of the fixed stars and planets and their relationship to events on Earth and is one of the three Hermetic arts of astrology, alchemy and magic traditionally attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, the Thrice Great Hermes. From its historical origins 4,000 years ago in Babylonia and Chaldea astrology developed into an art of great complexity, capable of detailed and precise predictions.
Astrologers and mages like Cornelius Agrippa and Marsilio Ficino using the fabled grimoire Picatrix brought traditional astrology using astrological magic to create astrological talismans and bringing the Hermetic Arts of astrology and magic to their greatest heights in the Renaissance.
With the rebirth of the actual techniques of Renaissance astrology, concrete and specific prediction of actual events with astrological readings including horary astrology and natal readings as well as precise, pinpoint elections of dates and times and the beauty and harmony of Renaissance astrological talismans and astrological magic as well as astrology and astrological books and specialized astrological software for traditional astrology are available from Christopher Warnock, the preeminent astrological magician and a leading traditional astrologer.
Begin your journey into traditional astrology and traditional astrological magic at the Renaissance Astrology website with over 600 pages of examples, explanations and translations of traditional texts. Surf the site and buy books to learn on your own or through courses or get authentic readings and talismans.
Astrological talismans, pentacles and amulets can be seen as embodying one or more celestial spirits or as containing the magical charge of a planet, fixed star, or other celestial factor like the decan/faces or Mansions of the Moon. The key to authentic astrological talismans is the careful choice of an astrological auspicious time to create the talisman using electional astrology and consecrating the talisman by calling the appropriate angel or spirit into the talisman, also at the elected time.
Only Renaissance Astrology offers authentically made astrological talismans designed, elected and created under the supervision of the world's leading traditional astrological magician Christopher Warnock. All talismans are made in limited editions and are only available for a limited time. Take a look at the currently available talismans and currently available pentacles and learn how to choose a talisman based on your goals and your natal chart.

Once the client receives the written reading, the practical implications can be discussed via phone or e-mail, if desired.
