Christopher Warnock has been a traditional astrologer and Renaissance astrological magician since 1998. He has been called "the father of the traditional astrological magic revival" and the "elder statesman" of astrological magic. With John Michael Greer, Mr. Warnock translated the Latin Picatrix, the most important grimoire of traditional astrological magic and has written and published many books on astrological magic and traditional astrology. In the Celestial Way Warnock provides a firm foundation and preliminary practices for using astrological magic as part of a spiritual path. Beginning with an explanation of worldview and exploring examples of historical spiritual uses of astrological magic Warnock explains his devotional method of practice. While conversant with historical sources, Warnock grounds his approach in practical experience and a decades long spiritual journey in Sufism and Zen Buddhism. Warnock provides specific useful preliminary spiritual practices like the Daily Planetary Practice and planetary charity and delves into the astrological signification and methods of identifying and contacting the guardian angel/personal daimon. Warnock ends by discussing the theurgic practice of the Perfect Nature found in Picatrix, the most famous grimoire of astrological magic. Appendices include 2 variations of the Warnock's planetary invocations as well as lengthy quotations from Picatrix. The Celestial Way offers a myriad of possible ways to pursue your own spiritual path using traditional astrology and astrological magic as well as a path for moderns to escape the hopelessness of the atheistic materialist and nihilist worldviews.
