Re: What are you researching right now?

I'm slowly continuing to read Stephen Skinner's analysis of the Greek Magical Papyri, "Techniques of Graeco-Egyptian Magic", as a preliminary to trying out some of the techniques for myself. I am about halfway through this thick textbook, and it's very thorough and interesting stuff. I got...

Questions about your Evocation Practices

Some questions for people who work successfully with Solomonic or other ceremonial evocation magick: Do you use a circle and triangle? If so, do you have a place you can draw it on with chalk, or do you use a painted fabric rectangle with the circle and triangle drawn on it? Do you cut along the edg...

Reading Books on Older Magic

I'm reading about some older magic lately. I am halfway done with this new translation of The Key of Solomon compiled by Dr. Stephen Skinner. The Key of Solomon is actually a tradition rather than a single manuscript; there are over 100 ancient manuscripts in various languages that explore it, the e...

Re: Reversing blood magick?? (desperate)

Here's a possibility using Solomonic magic. If you obtain the First Pentacle of Venus, and use it on the Day and Hour of Venus to petition the spirits of Venus to restore your natural balance in matters of love, that could help. You can find some on Etsy for pretty cheap. Make sure you buy one that ...

Since it seems like you would prefer not to have this conversation privately, I'll answer you here. First I will clarify the 'Walgreens' incident for you since the omitted requisite leads to an incorrect 'assumption' on your part. I was at a Walgreens earlier in that day where I spoke with a cashie...

Re: What does your name mean?

Mine is a throwaway name; I didn't want OccultForum tied to my other projects and communities. Obviously it comes from "aurora borealis", it translates to "northern" in Latin.

Re: Spell to life in a Paralel Universe

Many here have declared that material transfer to another plane isn't possible. They quickly dash to substances to alter the mind or to astral projection. Why? Because they personally fail to literally manifest material? Because they personally fail to jump dimensions? This makes them assume it's i...

Re: Magic number 11

In Thelema, 11 is a special number which corresponds to the magical word Abrahadabra, the word of 11 letters. It symbolizes the uniting of the microcosm and the macrocosm -- the pentagram and the hexagram. According to Crowley it is the "Word of the Aeon" and it “represents the Great Work ...

Re: Spell to life in a Paralel Universe

I think everyone here has some interesting suggestions so far, so I'll give my input on those. So you want to create a wonderland ? I don't think you actually need some special spell for that. The wonderland Cerber speaks of, if I'm not mistaken, refers to an inner-world or astral temple. This is te...

Re: Spell caster

The best way is to become one yourself! The better you understand how it all really works, the easier it is to spot a phony. I'm not sure there are any clear giveaways that always apply. Charlatans can be crafty. However, if someone actually believes in what they are doing, then their magic is real,...

Re: Ritual Advice/Workings for Novices

I think the big idea in satanic philosophy is to get rid of the idea of "worshiper" that is the idea of obedience and blind faith. Servantofthelord sounds like they may be a Luciferian, rather than a Satanist. Satanists are all about personal empowerment and the exaltation of desire, and ...

Sometimes. I've had some really spot-on single draws from my tarot deck, and other times what comes out seems like gibberish. I seem to draw the 9 of swords more often than any other card. There have been spreads I've done that were also very strong, and others that seemed like noise. Having concent...
