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.
The Future of Money Magic: What Do We Put Under the Candle When Our Currency Goes Digital?
Date: 2016-04-18   By: Daniel Harms
The global economy is changing, and we are moving to a new form of money: a completely digital one. Most people will not currently believe it, but such a world is almost here. How does this impact money magick? Gordon White, author of the new Chaos Protocols: Magical Techniques for Navigating the New Economic Reality, explains how we can navigate these changes and how we might even benefit from it.
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.
The Magical Use of Prayer Beads
Date: 2016-04-25   By: Jean-Louis de Biasi
On the spiritual level, mantras and prayers can be used in the same way; a precise and regular repetition of words that will progressively build an inner core, allowing you to rise to the divine. I am not talking here about hymns or declamatory prayers. Likewise, prayer beads can be used in all spiritual and initiatic traditions to help with this process of prayer and repeition, creating strength with each refrain. Jean-Louis de Biasi, author of the new Magical Use of Prayer Beads, discusses their history and power.
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.

Making Your Own Banishing (Some Fast Guidelines)

"She is indeed more splendid than the sun, she outshines all the constellations; compared with light, she takes first place, for light must yield to night…" —The Book of Wisdom 7:29-30 When we speak of the darkness of our nature we immediately turn our mind towards the shadow of our being—that is, all those emotional states... read this article
