If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Rich?

Two years ago I made a blog post about poverty thinking and how that can be a cause of impoverishment. I showed that on some level many people see the wealth of the world as being like a pie, and if you make your piece bigger, someone else will get a smaller piece. Not wanting […]

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 […]

Beware the Grand Poobahs!

The term “Grand Poobah” is derived from the brilliant comic opera by Gilbert and Sullivan, The Mikado. In it, there’s a character named “Poo-Bah.” Poo-Bah has a long series of titles after his name, such as Commander-in-Chief, Lord Chief Justice, and Lord High Everything Else. According to Wikipedia, the term Grand Poobah is used today “as […]

A New Book—A New Job

My New Book: The Magical Life of Scott Cunningham On leap day, February 29, 1980, needing a room to rent, I moved into a two-bedroom apartment with a person I barely knew.

Reincarnation: Its Value and a Proof

Even though billions of people around the world believe in reincarnation, and the belief in reincarnation has existed for thousands of years, it remains a highly controversial subject. Personally, I believe that’s a good thing. We should examine our beliefs to determine whether they are based in reality rather than fantasy. Most occultists, but definitely not […]

The Secrets of Real Love Spells—Part 4

In the first part of this series I discussed why the common, non-magickal concept of a love spell was a bad idea, but that real love spells were a practical option for magickal folks. In the second part of this series I described how it’s a myth that “opposites attract” but an occult truism that “like attracts […]

The Secrets of Real Love Spells—Part 1

© Dr. Michel Royon/Wikimedia Commons For many of us the weather is still quite cold. But with the Vernal Equinox that has just occurred, Spring has sprung. In the words of Alfred Lord Tennyson, “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” I would add that it’s also a young woman’s […]

The I.O.B. Ritual

Judging from the mail I have received, one of the most popular parts of Modern Magick is the I.O.B. ritual. The I.O.B. isn’t “new,” in that it’s based on solid tradition, only the description and format is new. Although the original purpose of this ritual is to deal with psychological blocks, it can be used to […]

Magick Apple

One of the continued challenges of ritual design is simple: coming up with a good ritual. This has to take in several considerations: Theory/philosophy: Does the ritual you’re designing match your understanding of magick? Does it have something that counters your magickal philosophy or it is completely in harmony with what you know? Theatricality: Even […]

In Like a Lion

Well, as the old saying goes, this month is roaring in like a lion. A couple of people are arguing over who is the real Golden Dawn. So what else is new? There are Witchcraft groups that are disagreeing with each other and separating. So what else is new? Actually, there are a couple of […]
