About this Book Scan

The Progressed Horoscope by Alan Leo was his main textbook on predictive astrology, and was the fifth overall volume to appear in his series of Astrological Textbooks also known as the “Astrology for All” Series.

It deals mainly with secondary directions (or progressions) and their delineation, but also incorporates a treatise on primary directions by the prominent early 20th century astrologer Heinrich Däath, who was a frequent contributor to Modern Astrology magazine and also wrote a book on medical astrology for Alan Leo’s separate Astrological Manuals series.

Our scan of the first edition of 1906 shows the text of The Progressed Horoscope in its original form when first unveiled to the public.

NB: The binding on our source copy is a slightly later issue; but the text is that of the 1906 first edition.
