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.

True Tale 1

When I was about five, my father had a massive heart attack died. My mother, without a job and left on her own to manage a home and two young children, couldn’t cope and had a nervous breakdown. My brother and I were sent from our home in Los Angeles to live with relatives in […]

A Valuable, But Oft’ Forgotten Resource

The other day I was at a friend’s house and we began talking about books. I have several thousand books on various occult topics. Some are very old. Others are quite new. My friend and I both knew of people who had well over ten thousand books, although most were fiction, especially fantasy or science […]

Practical vs. Armchair

When I was very young, I loved to watch and listen to baseball games. I’d fall asleep listening on the radio to Vin Scully and Jerry Doggett* call the Dodgers games. I started playing little league baseball, and in my last year I had the highest batting average in the league. Today, I find listening […]

Good News, Sad News, Appearance News

Good News I begin this post with some good news. Twenty-five years ago, while I was deeply studying the teachings of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, I was looking for aspects of the tradition that few people were researching. I came across a complex divination system used by that Order known as Enochian […]

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 […]
