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.
A Traditional Foundation
Date: 2008-04-21   By: Jason Kitchen
Magick has evolved tremendously over the past few years. It has stood the test of time, overcome the slander of contrary opinion, and it has taken a very deep position in the mainstream community. The new faces and names to the occult remain loyal to their traditions, but are not bound by it, and all of us have built our foundation from the techniques of elder work. What will the magickal foundation be like for those of tomorrow?
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.
Chaos Magic: The Misunderstood Path
Date: 2009-01-12   By: Andrieh Vitimus
There are many differing opinions on what chaos magic really is, many of which evoke an image of something dark, sinister, and dangerous. Andrieh Vitimus, author of Hands-On Chaos Magic, dispels the myths and details what chaos magic really is and how, in these uncertain times, it can provide a framework by which we can improve magical results and achieve whatever outcomes we desire.
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.
Dion Fortune: Moon Priestess
Date: 2009-11-09   By: Alan Richardson
Dion Fortune, one of the most striking, enigmatic, and least known women of the twentieth century, can be credited for much of what we consider to be "New Age" today. To get to the essence of her for the new reader, how can she be summed up? Alan Richardson, author of Aleister Crowley and Dion Fortune: Logos of the Aeon, Shakti of the Age, discusses just why we should credit DF.

Exercise: Initiating Contact with Your Holy Guardian Angel (HGA)
Date: 2010-04-30   By: Llewellyn

I talk to people about tarot all the time, and one of the things I hear a lot is, "Oh, I'm not good at tarot," or, "I've tried and it just doesn't work for me," or, "I just don't feel it with the cards." Well, first of all, you might not feel it, and that's okay. I grew up playing cards, from Go Fish through Hearts and Gin Rummy, everyone in my... read this article
