Carefully scanned in full colour from our original printing of the 1913 first edition.

Esoteric Astrology was the final volume in Alan Leo’s series of seven astrological text-books. Its contents are a marked departure from those of the first six volumes, which were mainly focused on astrological chart construction and delineation. The contents of Esoteric Astrology are not especially practical in focus, but are looking at the principles of astrology from a spiritual conceptual perspective that is primarily theosophical, with some probable influences from Indian esoteric lore blended in. The book does not make for easy reading for typical modern astrologers, but should be of interest to students of theosophy and theosophical astrology as well as to specialists in esoteric forms of astrology.

This book was the first substantial text-book to explicitly use the term Esoteric Astrology in its title. Several authors of later 20th century astrology books have followed after this example.
