More About the Author

Anthony Louis is a psychiatrist who has been studying astrology as a serious avocation since his early teens and tarot for the past three decades. His longstanding interest in the history and symbolism of the divinatory arts led him to lecture internationally and to publish numerous articles and books on astrology, tarot, and other forms of divination. His highly acclaimed text on horary astrology first appeared in 1991 and was revised and reissued in 1996. His bestselling book 'Tarot Plain and Simple' is a perennial favorite.

A more advanced book entitled 'Tarot Beyond the Basics' was released by Llewellyn in April of 2014. A reviewer in Library Journal (14 Apr 2014) said of Louis' most recent tarot text: "Well researched and organized and offering a fantastic card-by-card appendix, this title will satisfy readers of tarot and divination systems who are looking for depth." -- Janet Tapper

In 2013 Louis began to publish e-books about astrology and tarot for Kindle on amazon.com. He has also written the text for reports on vocation, secondary progressions, and solar returns for Halloran software's AstrolDeluxe Report Writer and has translated into English Morin's Book 18 of Astrologia Gallica on the strengths and weaknesses of the planets. Based on his study of Morin's work on solar returns, he reviewed the classic and modern literature and in 2008 published "The Art of Forecasting with Solar Returns."

The author is a member of the Astrological Society of Connecticut. His blog is at http://tonylouis.wordpress.com/

If I could keep only one book about horary astrology, it would be this one--actually, I prefer the earlier, fatter version of this book, in its pre-"Plain-and-Simple" incarnation, but it is no longer available. I own several horary books (Watters, Goldstein-Jacobson, Coley, Lilly, DeLong, Barclay, etc.), but this one distills the best of all of them.

Many books present solid, rather rigid, systems of horary interpretation. This isn't necessarily bad. DeLong's book, for example, provides methods that yield excellent results. Goldstein-Jacobson's method also presents a direct, rule-bound method that many people love--I find it a little restrictive. Dr. Louis' text, though, synthesizes a wide--and I mean WIDE--range of texts, tests different methods, and leaves the reader to experiment and find which methods work for him. This might seem overwhelming at first blush to a beginner, but it shouldn't, since the basics remain pretty much the same regardless whom you're reading. And, trust me, this book is much more accessible to the average reader than some of the bibles of horary (like Christian Astrology).

This book leans heavily towards traditional horary astrology, but does not ignore the outer planets as many traditional horary adherents tend to do. Also, different astrologers present different techniques for timing events, and locating lost objects, dicey endeavors at best; but Louis presents those methods and tests them with sample charts--and leave it to the reader to choose.

This has become one of my favorite astrology books since I began my studies a decade ago. Anthony Louis has done his homework and presents some difficult concepts in an easy and readable style. He gives plenty of examples to illustrate his points. The best feature of the book is the excitement and love of learning about astrology that runs through the whole text. I cannot recommend it highly enough, and I wish I could give it six stars.

Format: Paperback
This is a very comprehensive and detailed work on horary astrology and certainly will demand and mostly reward a lot of study. It covers almost everything about horary, but is confusing and does not leave you feeling confident that horary is going to work. The confusion is because the author does not resolve the problems of using the traditional method with modern planets and aspects, and instead jumbles it all together, sometimes using one, sometimes the other, and suggesting that you need to find your own way. This suggestion does not suit this precise branch of astrology, and besides, horary works best when done the original way as experience usually shows. There are also numerous technical errors and contradictions and too many innovations - horary is demanding enough without having to invent extra complications. But the book is amazingly comprehensive and will still give you a lot of real and valuable information.

In summary, this book will serve if you can't get hold of the far superior Horary Textbook by John Frawley, and of course a study of Lilly's Christian Astrology will be challenging but pay off much more handsome dividends now that it is readily avialable.

This is not a book for beginners. You have to know some basic astrology to get into horary, but once you decide to learn it, this is the place to start. The author does an admirable job of making the minute rules and definitions of horary clear and understandable. His analogies and examples are outstanding. This is an excellent guide to horary, and it is hard to recommend it highly enough.

This is not a book for a novice. Mr. Louis has a niche for writing technical jargon in a non-complex manner, but without having the basics down, the reader will most likely feel like a fish out of water. Horary astrology is much more complex and I feel forced to argue the title of "plain and simple" as I did not find anything simple at all about horary astrology. I must admit though, that Mr. Louis made it seem less like a whole new learning practise and more like the extension of astrology that it should be.

I found this book easy to read, very clear and understandable. It is not a book for a novice. You have to know some basic astrology before you study horary. But when you are ready to learn horary, this this the place to start. The author reviews the history of horary and gives clear examples of all the concepts. There are lots of real life examples that make fascinating reading. This is astrology at its best.

Horary is one of the more difficult branches of astrology. In this book, the author takes the pain out of horary. He presents the subject clearly and logically so it all comes together and makes sense. If you've been afraid to tackle horary, fear no more. This book is a delight: easy to read, thorough, relatively painless, and sprinkled through with a good measure of humor.
