Our Llewellyn Magickal Universe blog began with noted magician and author Donald Michael Kraig. Now, friends and authors delve into the esoteric to continue the conversation that Don has started.

The Challenge of Cultural Appropriation

It’s my observation that many people are looking into their pasts. These pasts may be genetically based (“My great-great grandparents came from…”) or spiritually based (“I feel such a pull to the ________ tradition…”). This can be a great thing or it can be a horrible thing. This was brought up in a wonderful post by Taylor […]

Are You a Querent?

I have been studying the Tarot and giving readings with it for many decades, thousands of readings. I used to give readings at psychic fairs for as many as forty people a day. That can be really exhausting. The Tarot was one of my earliest occult studies. I’ve read hundreds of books on the Tarot. […]

1+1=2; 1+2=3…

Addition tables are easy to understand. 1+1=2 1+2=3 1+3=4 1+4=5 This progression could go on infinitely, and you’d have no trouble figuring out the totals. Now, here’s a secret some people don’t want you to know: many forms of divination are just as simple. Let’s look at Tarot. According to some authorities, the Two of […]

My Ring

  Here is a photo of my magick ring:    This ring has been part of my life for many years. Part of the concept for it (pentagrams on the front and sides with two circles around them) were suggested by my friend, Raven Grimassi. At the time, I was living north of San Diego […]

A Call to Leaders of the Golden Dawn

In Modern Magick I described why I thought the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was important. Imagine a simple hourglass: The sand in the top half represents the  forms of occultism known in the West during the middle to late 19th century, ranging from ceremonial magick to Paganism. They were filled with differences and […]

Nine Theorems of Magick

One of the most difficult aspects of magick is understanding that it is a science and an art. Since there is a scientific aspect to it there must be some presuppositions about magick that have acquired the quality of being rules or laws. In my Modern Sex Magick I describe what I contend are nine […]

Altars and Traditions

In major Western Ceremonial Magick traditions, the altar is described as being a “double cube.” That is, it had two equal-sized cubes on top of each other. So if your altar was to be 36″ tall, each side would be 18″. That’s the way I made my first altar. I painted it completely white (representing […]

The Fear that Paralyzes

Many months ago I turned in a manuscript to Llewellyn for consideration. I had been working on this manuscript for many years, and I had followed the formatting rules I had thought were appropriate for the submission. I thought wrong. I also received a large number of suggestions from my acquisition editor. I spent a […]

Can You See Me Now?

Over a year ago I made a post where I shared this story about Aleister Crowley: There is a story of a young man, sitting in a cafĂ© (I’ve heard of different locations where this story occurred), when all of a sudden, a strange man, dressed in yellow, comes darting through the cafĂ©, babbling in […]
