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.
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.
10 Simple Charms To Welcome the New Year
Date: 2016-02-09   By: Aaron Leitch
You might have noticed New Year's Day tends to fall at different times in different cultures. But, whenever you celebrate the new year (and even throughout the year!), it is not surprising that our culture has developed its own magickal traditions surrounding this important time of change and hope. This is good old fashioned witchery—simple little charms and rituals performed at home, allowing ourselves and our families to grab the reins of the new year and attempt to steer it in a positive direction right from its very first moments. Aaron Leitch provides ten simple charms to attract abundance as we enter another new year.
Solomon's Keys: Revealing the Origins of Modern Ritual Practices
Date: 2009-07-20   By: David Rankine
Most magicians have a routine they follow prior to casting a spell: creating a ritual space, casting a circle, and consulting a Book of Shadows. From where do these practices come? David Rankine, co-author of The Veritable Key of Solomon, discusses how the Key of Solomon helped shape ritual as we know it 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?
Rejuvenating Your Daily Rituals
Date: 2008-06-02   By: Jason Kitchen
The daily rituals are the most commonly practiced techniques by the modern Occultist, Beginner and Adept alike; for one to halt their practice altogether would most likely prove to be unwise. Yet, I am sure most would agree that the monotony of the day-to-day continuation can tend to become boring or even tiresome. The following are some techniques to rejuvenate the power and manifestation of your daily rituals, including the Lesser Banishing Ritual.
