Ordo Astri provides courses in practical magick and astrology within the Western Hermetic and Thelemic Tradition. All practical work requires time put in for reading, writing, study and thought. Before undertaking a commitment to our practical course, please make sure you have studied our advice given here (opens new page or tab):
We have a range of resources on the web to assist the study and practice of magick and yoga, and the expansion of knowledge (see below). Have you studied and practiced our Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram? We present the complete ritual here. There is more to this ritual than meets the eye of the casual observer. Our Foundation Hermetic Qabalah course devotes an entire month to this ritual, putting it together step by step.

O∴ A∴ Collegium and Courses
- The O∴ A∴ Collegium is a traditional grade system based on the Hermetic Tree of Life. The first grade is Student. Initiation is by personal work and the Keeping of the diary Record. Those wishing to enter the Initiated grades must first perform a spiritual exercise on a strict daily basis for one year, keeping a magical diary Record of their work. For this purpose we provide a one-year supervised correspondence course in practical Qabalistic magick and yoga (see below). Applicants to the Order must be aged 21 years or more. Members are expected to manage their own contributions to the Order. Usually they make regular or occasional donations, as according to their means, and work voluntarily on behalf of the Order.
- We provide a complete course in practical Qabalah for the student with serious intent, available in book-form. The course provides a thorough grounding in the Hermetic Tree of Life, which is the basis of magick in theory and practice. The course involves meditation and ritual. Two books are required, Hermetic Qabalah—A Foundation in the Art of Magick (theory), and Hermetic Qabalah Initiation Workbook (practice). The book Magical Theurgy—Rituals of the Tarot is a valuable supplement, as it expands greatly on the knowledge and rituals, covering a wide range of practical techniques such as astral projection, talismans and magical mudras. Magical Theurgy may also be used as a practical course in its own right.
- In addition, our course in esoteric astrology is presented in the book, Hermetic Astrology. Those with serious intent to pursue practical occultism should be thoroughly conversant with the language and symbolism of the stars and so capable of divining the import of relations between earth, planets and luminaries.
