EDGE OF THE CIRCLE BOOKS IS PROUD TO PRESENT:







PICATRIX


THE COMPLETE ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF LATIN PICATRIX 



Edge of the Circle Books is pleased to present John Michael Greer’s and Christopher Warnock’s complete English translation of the Latin Picatrix in paperback and hardcover . both Greer and Warnock are experienced ceremonial magicians and Warnock is the leading contemporary astrological magician. Picatrix explains how to make hundreds of different talismans. This is the source that all of the renaissance mages used for their astrological talismans, mansions of the moon, planetary talismans, house based talismans, multiple sets of decan talismans, it’s all there!



But Picatrix goes beyond what you would expect from a Grimoire, it’s just not sets of practical recipes, though lord knows there is lots and lots of practical info. Picatrix explains hermetic and Neo-Platonic philosophy and how talismans work, logically and coherently. This is also why this book was prized by the highest of high mages. As john likes to say, Picatrix truly represents the rocket science of the day. Astrological magic is complex, but this complexity gives it such great scope and great power. Picatrix puts it all right in front of you! Finally the secrets of astrological magic are revealed!



And now, finally all four books of Picatrix, are laid out clearly and cogently for you in one volume in English with a translation based on the Latin critical edition edited by David Pingree, plus spirit names in Arabic! Pingree didn’t just use one manuscript, he used over 20, going line by line through every one and comparing all of these manuscripts word by word. The critical edition is longer and has much more material than any one manuscript. Now, you, too can have a copy of the English translation of the Latin Picatrix.

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Our civilisation is in Crisis.
As we confront Ecological Collapse, political control, Wars of Terror, and wars on consciousness, we are seeking emergence from this state of emergency.


XVI proposes gnostic strategies for liberation.
Some will consider this a dangerous and inflammatory Book.
It is.


These provocative essays from the most radical contemporary occult thinkers reveal a creative and passionate engagement with the world.


Attacks on our freedoms can lead to freedom, the sudden enlightenment, the lightning path and the initiatory crisis that The Tower also represents.


XVI seeks to raise magickal awareness of the unique times we find ourselves in, whilst being open to the resourcefulness and indominatable nature of the human spirit to find solutions and responses to it.


This is magick attuned to the zeitgeist.


Sex, drugs, art, initiation rites, calls to arms, ritual actions, Aeonic plans, Revolutionary Witchcraft and apocalypse converge in our new title, XVI.
