British astrologer and author of "A New and Complete Illustration of the Celestial Science of Astrology" in 1787, as well as "An Illustration of the Occult Sciences." He dealt largely with astrology of black and white magic, witchcraft and the occult, and his books contain horoscopes of the royalty.
Beginning in 1791, Sibly published "The Conjurer’s Magazine," primarily devoted to parlor magic. As the focus shifted and the amount of astrological content increased, the periodical’s name was changed to "The Astrologer’s Magazine," and it was published until 1794. When his astrological compilation was published, Sibly was accused of plagiarism, a charge apparently never proven. Despite this controversy, he was instrumental in helping astrology regain momentum during the late 1700s.
Sibly died 10/30/1799, London, England.
