Abu al-Saqr al-Qabisi Abd al-Aziz ibn Uthman, Abu al-Saqr al-Qabisi, Al-Qabisi, Alchabitius (أبو الصقر القبيصي عبد العزيز بن عثمان), also known as Alcabitius, Abdelazys, Abdilaziz, was a 10th century Arabian astrologer.
He is primarily known for his treatise on judicial astrology, Introduction to the Art of Judgments of the Stars, a work which, in its Latin translation Liber isagogicus de planetarum coniunctionibus, was highly prized in medieval and renaissance Europe. Judicial astrology is the art of forecasting future events by calculation of the planetary and stellar bodies and their relationship to the Earth.
