Special Announcements

The Church of The Hermetic Sciences
Associate Member Program

Nosce te Ipsum

The Church of the Hermetic Sciences was founded in 1970 and incorporated in the State of California in 1971 as a religious philosophical organization dedicated to preserving and continuing the Western Esoteric Tradition through the process of ceremonial initiation and practical instruction in the Hermetic Art-Sciences of Magick, Qabalah, Alchemy, and Astrology.  We follow the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus whose ancient vision is compatible with the deepest esoteric expressions of the three major Biblical religions and Freemasonry and Rosicrucianism.  Our Seasonal Rites and Yoga System are based on the pre-Biblical myth cycle of ancient Canaan and the traditions of Melchizedek and King Solomon. To implement this program the Church sponsors a religious-fraternal Order, The Order of the Temple of Astarte, which is initiatory and follows the Seven Degrees of Crata Repoa, an 18th century European outline of degrees in the ancient Hermetic Tradition.  To learn more about our teaching and work please visit The Hermetic Hour website and listen to our archived podcasts on all aspects of the Hermetic Arts.  Each lecture is introduced by an abstract describing the subject covered. We also call your attention to our journal The Seventh Ray which is available on

We offer an online Associate Member program for worthy aspirants who live beyond the reach of our Temples. This is a graduated program of instruction that parallels and compliments the initiatory sequence without actually conferring or communicating the degrees. However, with study and mentoring, the online student may earn letters of entitlement to receive the degrees. The program includes most of our regular instruction and is open to active initiates and inactive members who have moved away from our temple locations.

To be considered for Associate Membership the applicant should be over 18 years of age, and a free, law-abiding citizen of his/her country (U.S., U.K., and Canada.) You must write us a letter telling us about yourself and your reasons for wanting to join us. After we receive and evaluate your letter we may send you our Membership Application form which includes a membership agreement. You will fill this out providing the information required, sign the agreement and enclose a check or money order for thirty-five dollars $35.00 if you live in the U.S. Forty-five $45.00 if in Canada or U.K. All funds must be in USD checks and money orders made out to: The Church of the Hermetic Sciences.  Send the application with payment to:  The Church of the Hermetic Sciences, Dept. AM, P.O. Box 403, Silverado, CA  92676,  U.S.A.

After receiving and approving your application we will send you your membership package which will include: a membership certificate suitable for framing, a yearly identification card, an updated copy of The Book of Solomon's Magick and The Magick of Solomon DVD (your course text), The Rites of Magick DVD, 20% discount coupons for all other CHS/OTA and Maelstrom publications and productions, and a gift certificate for a free copy of Beyond Lemuria 2nd Edition with your first coupon order.  You will also receive the access code to this website where you will find your lessons and can interact with other members and keep up with Church and Order news and activities.

Free Natal Chart / Ascendant for our Astrologers

Posted by Mark Mueller on September 23, 2018 at 2:06pm 0 Comments

  1. Go to Click on Free Horoscopes > Natal Chart/Ascendant. You can create a free registered user profile or create a horoscope as a guest. After registering or continuing as a guest you will see a Birth Data Entry form. Fill out this form and submit it to see your generated natal chart.
  2. Go to Astrolabe: Free Birthchart and Astrology Report. Enter your birth data into the form and submit it to see your results. Scroll down to view a brief interpretation of your chart. Print the page to save your chart as a PDF file.

Most Astrologers start out by learning how to interpret their own natal chart. Most people know what day they were born, but many don’t know the exact time of birth. You’ll need an accurate birth time and location to find out what your rising sign is. You can typically find this information on your birth certificate.
