Does it have something that counters your magickal philosophy or it is completely in harmony with what you know? Theatricality: Even […]

Brain waves, ritual, relaxation…

Cleansing Your Cards

Keeping your cards clean is mostly a matter of common sense. They are made of paper, so if they get sticky or dirty, wipe them with a very slightly damp cloth and then wipe them dry immediately. But when people ask about “cleansing the cards” they are not usually asking about a bit of jam […]

Success is thy proof: argue not; convert not; talk not over much! The Book of the Law Chapter 3, Verse 42 One of the most common questions I receive is “How do you know a ritual worked?” Crowley’s The Book of the Law has what to me is the most obvious answer. If you get the […]
