Al-Biruni was an astrologer and a scholar. Living in the Middle East, he was able to interact with both Hindus and Arabs. Translated into English, this book is one of the rare, pre-Rennaissance texts that's been available to 20th Century astrologers. It's also a classic work of Arabic astrology, written by a true master.
Abu Rayhan al-Biruni compares and contrasts different systems of astrology. Beginning with sections on geometry and arithmetic, it leads to a thorough exposition of Ptolemaic astronomy that includes a detailed description of the use of the astrolabe. There are subsequent sections on geography and chronology. Biruni insists that no-one is entitled to call himself an Astrologer unless he possesses a thorough knowledge of these ancillary sciences.
