C. Heydon Junior was the pseudonym used by an unidentified late 18th century English astrologer to honour the late Sir Christopher Heydon. The earlier of his two books, The New Astrology focuses chiefly on horary astrology. The second edition as featured here, which was published in the same year as the first, expanded significantly on it and is regarded as the definitive one.
