Foreseer ‎| Picatrix: Complete Edition
Label: Starry Earth ‎– StarryEarth002
Format: Cassette, EP, Limited Edition
Released| 20 Nov 2020

Formerly a Bandcamp exclusive series by Foreseer now recieves a full digital and limited cassette tape release. We figured it would be nice to compile both releases into one sweet little package.

The Picatrix is the name used today, for a 400-page book of magic and astrology originally written in Arabic under the title غاية الحكيم Ghāyat al-Ḥakīm, which most scholars assume was originally written in the middle of the 11th century, though an argument for composition in the first half of the 10th century has been made. The Arabic title translates as The Aim of the Sage or The Goal of The Wise.

Picatrix is a composite work that synthesizes older works on magic and astrology. One of the most influential interpretations suggests it is to be regarded as a "handbook of talismanic magic". Another researcher summarizes it as "the most thorough exposition of celestial magic in Arabic", indicating the sources for the work as "Arabic texts on Hermeticism, Sabianism, Ismailism, astrology, alchemy and magic produced in the Near East in the ninth and tenth centuries A.D.
