Throughout history, Western magic has been viewed with extreme ambivalence: at the same time accepted and dismissed, even by those who practiced it. Why is this? Could it have something to do with the very essence of magic itself? Donald Tyson, occultist and author of Serpent of Wisdom, explains why his new book thoroughly illuminates magic, its history, and its practice.

King James I of England came to be one of the more prominent prosecutors of "witch mania" beginning in Scotland and Denmark in 1590. Believing that persecuting witches under the law would grant him protection from their "black magick," James took on a great role in the interrogations and prosecution. His book, Demonology, was written with the aim to "educate" others on the evils of witchcraft and the supernatural. While being a difficult subject matter for many to broach, Donald Tyson has revisited this important work and made it approachable and understandable as The Demonology of King James I.

The writer of horror stories, Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890—1937), was a man at war with himself. On the conscious level he was a rationalist, a materialist, and toward the end of his life, an atheist who rejected all forms of religion, spirituality, magic, and mysticism as no more than rank superstitions. Lovecraft did not believe in God or the afterlife. It was his stated conviction that...

Who was H.P. Lovecraft? What is exactly is the Necronomicon, and why has it left such an indelible impression on magicians and occultists of today? Donald Tyson, author of The 13 Gates of the Necronomicon, describes just exactly what Lovecraft had in mind—and why our usage of the Necronomicon today would be blasphemy to him.

Soul flight is the separation of the mind from the body of a living human being. It encompasses all projections of consciousness, both those widely known and others seldom recognized as astral travel. Soul flight is a much more varied experience than most people realize. The most common kind of soul flight is dreaming. The dream world is an astral reality that we visit in our sleep. Usually we...

Delving into history, legend, and myth, Donald Tyson explores the world of Alhazred, his newest book on this mysterious wandering author of H. P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon.
Date: 2005-10-31
The Necronomicon has become a kind of egregore in the modern world. It is the most notorious grimoire of all time, a notable achievement for a book that never existed. There is no historical evidence that such a book was written, yet tens of ...

The most famous book that never existed is the Necronomicon. It is said that those who study its contents go mad from the sheer monstrosity of its truths, for it reveals aspects of our world with which the human mind is not equipped to cope. The ...

The most difficult part of learning to divine with the Tarot is remembering the meanings of the cards. The names of the cards, and the card layouts for divination, are easy to remember, but the meanings are hard to memorize because there are so many ...
Abdul Alhazred is attributed as the mysterious author of the Necronomicon. Like the dark book he is reputed to have written, he was the creation of the fertile mind of Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), who invented both Alhazred and the ...
For years I’ve been telling readers that an entire system of magic in the Western tradition could be worked using nothing other than a deck of Tarot cards. In my books and articles, various suggestions were given as to how this might be done in part—for example, I described the laying out of a magic circle using the Tarot, and also the use of Tarot Aces as elemental weapons. Portable Magic...
