Robert Zoller, Picatrix, and Astrological Talismans since 2002
One day I’ll write about my studies with Robert Zoller as a young astrologer in the early 1990s (about 1992-1994), regularly going 2x/month to Zoller’s Upper East Side apartment in Manhattan for evening small group lessons.
In addition to group classes, I took regular private lessons with Rob in Medieval Alchemy, Astrological Magick, and Occult and Perennial Philosophy. I remember discussing the Picatrix with Rob before I encouraged Chris Warnock to publish the English translation of the grimoire from Latin with John Michael Greer. (In 2010 I coordinated the translation of Picatrix to Japanese by my late business partner, Ms. Yoko Eishima.)
In 2002, I elected and consecrated my first Astrological Talisman based on the Picatrix in New York City: Venus in Pisces, February 12, 2002, at 12:16 PM.
Since then I have elected and consecrated 126 Astrological Talismans for clients internationally.
Because of Rob Zoller, in my early astrological studies I also got more involved in psychological astrology based on Jung’s work, because he referred his then-girlfriend Michelle McGee, who was the librarian for the Jung Institute of New York, to me for a reading. Michelle encouraged me to get more involved with and attend events, workshops, and courses at the Jung Institute, which I did. Zoller also encouraged me to go to the NYC Kabbala Center, which I did, studying with the rabbis. As with all of my teachers in the early-mid ‘90s, including Bob Cook, Alphee Lavoie, and Rob Hand, regular studies with Rob Zoller clearly shaped the trajectory of my astrological work over the past 30 years.
