Aleister Crowley, the ‘Great Beast’, founder of the doctrine of Do What Thou Wilt and the most influential and charismatic occultist of the twentieth century, is chiefly known for his writings on magic. He also recognized the importance of Astrology as one of the keys to grasping the secret workings of the universe, and in this book his literary executor, John Symonds, author of The Great Beast, and with Kenneth Grant, present head of the occult organisation founded by Crowley, have collected all of Crowley’s writings on the subject.
