Welcome to the website of Dr Martin Gansten, teacher and practitioner of traditional astrology. If you are curious about the technical details and historical contexts of astrology, if you want to take my Primary Directions Diploma Course or request an astrological reading, you have come to the right place. You can read more about my latest book Annual Predictive Techniques of the Greek, Arabic and Indian Astrologers here.

You may also be interested in exploring my scholarly work on the history of astrology. In that case I invite you to visit the academic part of this website, where you can find a number of my published articles freely available under Open Access. My recent edition/translation of The Jewel of Annual Astrology, an encyclopaedic 17th-century Indian work on Tājika (Perso-Arabic) astrology, is available here.
