Magical Succession

Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Donald Tyson, author of a vast number of books, including The Serpent of Wisdom, The Demonology of King James I, and Necronomicon.   Schools of magic begin with the inspired leadership of one human being. That person is always guided by spirits, who are the true teachers […]

While Don works on his recovery, we will be sharing some guest blog posts from friends, authors, and other noted community figures. Please enjoy this guest blog post by Chic Cicero […]

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 […]

Change Is/Isn’t Good for Magick

In 1973, the Aquarian Press published R. G. Torrens’ The Secret Rituals of the Golden Dawn. This came four years after Spearman had published his The Inner Teachings of the Golden Dawn. A close reading of them showed variations, but not major differences, between the content of those two books and Israel Regardie‘s The Golden […]

Freemasons, Webinars, and the Golden Dawn

There has been a debate on the internet concerning the future of magick. I saw a discussion about it on Aaron Leitch’s Blog.

Aaron reveals, “Jake is a goetic magician, but […]

Leaders or Consensus?

I don’t know who originally stated it (maybe one of my readers knows), but there’s a statement running around the U.S. political blogosphere that “Republicans look for a leader while Democrats look for a consensus.” Whether or not you agree or disagree with this description, it would seem that the organization of occult groups seems […]

This issue begins with an article by Chic and Tabatha Cicero (You can pre-order the new edition of Israel Regardie’s The Philosopher’s Stone with the Cicero’s incredibly valuable notes and additions now) on “Osiris […]

Wands, Daggers, & Chalices: Wow! or meh?

The tools of magick—wands, chalices, robes, altars, pentacles and more—can be daunting to an aspiring magician. If you read some books such as those involved with Solomonic magick or Enochian magick, these are just the beginning tools. If all you want to do is perform a few spells or begin to move along on your […]
