In the modern world horary astrology is often used to find lost objects, but in the past horary was sometimes used to find hidden items of a more esoteric nature: buried treasures and magical artifacts, guarded by demons, dragons and spirits of the dead. In this lecture we will look at the intersection between horary astrology and magic as we explore the history and practise of astrological treasure-finding, from its origins among the treasure hunters of the medieval Islamic world, to the fashionable practise of magical treasure-finding in early modern Europe. Along the way we will learn the different rules used by astrologers for finding buried treasure, and end with a practical “how to” guide, should you ever want to use astrology to search for buried treasure yourself!
