About the Author:
Walter Gorn Old, a well-known astrologer under his pseudonym Sepharial, was born March 20, 1864, in Handsworth,Warwick, England. He attended King Edward’s School at Birmingham. He studied astrology and the Kabbalah (whichcontains ancient esoteric Jewish teachings) from an early age, and for some years studied medicine and psychology alongwith occultism. He later studied Oriental languages, including Coptic, Assyrian, Sanskrit, and Chinese.
Sepharial moved to London in 1889. Soon thereafter he was admitted into Madame Helen Blavatsky’s “inner group.”Sepharial introduced Alan Leo to Theosophy, and Leo remained within the Theosophical fold for the balance of his life.Sepharial, on the other hand, left formal Theosophy at some point between Blavatsky’s passing in 1891 and Annie Besant’sascension to presidency of the society in 1907. In contrast with Leo, Sepharial was interested in astrology as a practicalscience rather than as some esoteric art produced by marrying it to theosophy.
Sepharial retained a strong interest in Kabbalah and numerology along with his astrological interests. He was a significant,widely influential astrologer. His reflections on prenatal astrology inspired E. H. Bailey’s theorizing on the prenatal epoch. Hedied on December 23, 1919, in Hove, East Sussex.
