Demons, Fairies, and Saints in a Renaissance Manuscript of Magic
Date: 2015-03-30   By: Daniel Harms
Demons, fairies, and saints—together? These are not three categories we think of together. In past eras, however, perceptions of the supernatural world were much more fluid; magicians of the Renaissance would not be averse to calling upon whatever beings were available to help. Daniel Harms, one of the editors of The Book of Oberon, details this working manual of a magician from the time of Queen Elizabeth, William Shakespeare, and John Dee. The original is in the Folger Shakespeare Library, and it could be the largest collection of ritual magic texts ever published in English—including calling upon demons, fairies, and saints for help.
The Philosopher’s Stone Tarot Spread
Date: 2014-10-01   By: Chic Cicero
Of the many esoteric subjects studied by ceremonial magicians, alchemy is often considered one of the hardest and most arcane, while the tarot is thought to be one of the most accessible and “hands-on.” Historically the language of alchemy with its inscrutable riddles and metaphors have baffled many students, while the images of the tarot are more direct and often need little explanation. Some may prefer one over the other, but like other elements of the Western Esoteric Tradition, the best way to learn alchemy and tarot is to study these topics together. Golden Dawn Adepts Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero here provide the illuminating Philosopher's Stone Tarot Spread.
Ceremonial Magick: Reuniting Yourself with the Natural World
Date: 2014-07-21   By: Gregory Peters
In western ceremonial magick, there is often a tendency to view a magickal operation as something that is at odds with the natural order of the universe. The special robe, the implements, the prayers and orations and conjurations…all of this and more has the effect of isolating the individual from the rest of the universe. Is there a way to change this mindset and re-integrate ourselves to the natural world—and perhaps make our magick more powerful in the process? Gregory Peters, author of the new Magickal Union of the East and West, explains.
Restoring the Enochian Heptarchia
Date: 2014-02-24   By: Aaron Leitch
The Heptarchia (seven-fold rulership) is the name given to the Enochian system of planetary angel magick. Dr. John Dee and his scryer Edward Kelley left behind journals outlining the names of the Heptarchic angels, their appearances and functions, sigils, and even a grimoire. However, the information for these angels is incomplete and even a bit puzzling. Here Aaron Leitch, author of The Essential Enochian Grimoire, sets about restoring the Heptarchia so it can be fully used for angelic invocation.

Serpent of Wisdom: Essays on Western Magic
Date: 2013-07-22   By: Donald Tyson
Throughout history, Western magic has been viewed with extreme ambivalence: at the same time accepted and dismissed, even by those who practiced it. Why is this? Could it have something to do with the very essence of magic itself? Donald Tyson, occultist and author of Serpent of Wisdom, explains why his new book thoroughly illuminates magic, its history, and its practice.

The Long-Lost Friend
Date: 2012-07-23   By: Daniel Harms
Readers interested in spirituality live in an amazing time. Bookstores, libraries, and the Internet provide information on all manner of traditions, from the most orthodox to those that, a few centuries before, would have ensured a quick trip to the stake. It is hard for us to recall that, even a few decades ago, books on occult topics were quite difficult to come by. One such book that has lived in infamy is Der Lange Verborgene Freund, or "The Long-Lost Friend." Now newly updated, editor Daniel Harms explains its importance–both yesterday and today.
The Changing Face of Magic: Thinking Big Thoughts
Date: 2011-09-12   By: Brandy Williams
All of us are shaped by many factors: genetic heritage, family structure, our generation, the culture in which we are raised, and how that culture views gender. As we move through the years our experiences also go into making us who we are. Magic gives us tools to cope with the challenges life presents, and like us, magic is shaped by many external factors. How do we keep magic moving forward in our current times? Brandy Williams, author of Practical Magic for Beginners and The Woman Magician, explains.
