A Cyprianic Rosary

Today is a very special Day of the Sun, which also happens to be the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church, a day on which we pray for and commemorate all of the Martyrs who died for their faith throughout history, including Saint Cyprian, Saint Justina, and Saint Theocistus.

On this auspicious day, I finished a new hand-made devotional rosary to Saint Cyprian of Antioch for use in prayer and work with him as well as to be worn around my neck or wrist during Solomonic grimoire work.

This rosary features:

  • Purple beads symbolizing Cyprian’s mythic status as Bishop and spiritual regal status as well as the Sephirah of Yesod and the Moon, magic, and divination.
  • Three small transparent crystal balls.
  • Silver Cinquefoil roses suggesting the Divine Love of Mary, Venus, and the Fivefold Elemental Pentagram.

Weekly Tarot Guidance for the week of November 12 through 18, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

Last week was an incredible week in the Universe! Energies continue to shift this week as Mars finally makes its way into Pisces to stay until December 31. How has Venus retrograde treated you? The planet of love, money, and beauty will go direct on the 16th in home sign of Libra. Don’t get too excited, because later in the day, Mercury, that little trickster, will retrograde in Sagittarius. Mark your calendar for Mercury direct December 6, Venus leaving shadow December 17, and Mercury leaving shadow December 24. To hear what I have to say for this coming week and beyond, listen to my Weekly Tarot Guidance now on Patreon or Facebook Members Only.

On Initiation Into The Path Of Light …

 

“Heed these words, you who wish to probe the depths of Nature:

If you do not find within your Self that which you seek, neither will you find it outside.

If you ignore the wonders of your own House, how do you expect to find other wonders?

In you is hidden the Treasure of Treasures.

Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods.”

 

— Temple of Apollo at Delphi, by Proxy of Luxor, Ancient Egypt

Why is Yesod in Air and Hod in Water?

A common query among those working the Golden Dawn system is why the Sephirah Yesod (and Theoricus) is attributed to Air instead of Water (after all, it is linked with the Moon, which affects the tides), and why the Sephirah Hod (and Practicus) is attributed to Water (when it is also assigned to the more intellectual, or airy, planet of Mercury). It almost seems like it’s reversed, an apparent elemental inconsistency.  […]

Flames that Warm and Destroy: Reflections on “Required” versus “Wise” in Work with the Grimoires

Light in Extension: A Magical Journal

By Frater S.C.F.V.

demons

I read a quote today by Gordon Winterfield, author of Demons of Magick who claimed that none of the tools of grimoiric magic that many of us in this group have devoted so much time, love, and energy to creating are “required” to work with goetic spirits. If you’ve read any of my articles researching the meticulous traditions surrounding the making of some of these tools and sharing my approaches to crafting them, you could probably imagine my facial expression upon reading this statement…

However, since I attempt to be a charitable listener, I will willingly concede to Gordon that yes, technically, none of the classical equipment is “required” to complete a successful evocation, with ‘successful’ meaning that “the spirit showed up when called.” Here’s the thing, though; this “success” can come at the price of great danger, risk, and chaotic and unpredictable results from evocations…

Tracing the Origins of the Infamous Ouija Board

he Ouija board (known also as a Spirit board or Talking board) is a type of board commonly believed to enable its users to communicate with the spirit world. A Ouija board usually has the letters of the alphabet inscribed onto it, the numbers 0 – 9, along with words such as ‘yes’, ‘no’, and ‘goodbye’. In addition to the board itself, each Ouija includes a planchette, a teardrop-shaped device with three legs. The planchette is normally made of wood or plastic, and usually has either a hole in its middle or a kind of pointer. For the Ouija to operate, two or more people should be seated around the board, with their fingertips placed on the planchette. A question is then asked, and the planchette apparently seema to move on its own, thus providing an answer. […]

Invocation of Archangel Raphael

Ananael (The Secrets of Wisdom)

Greetings Angel-Workers!

This post is loooong overdue!  We performed our annual invocation and feeding of the Archangel Raphael way back on May 30th of this year (2018), but I have been so busy with magick, business, and life this year I haven’t had much time to maintain this blog.  😦  So, without further ado, I’ll jump right into it:

Raphael Altar Painted

We decided to feed Raphael when Mercury entered the sign of Gemini, which it rules.  It did so this year on May 29th – a Tuesday and the Full Moon.  We decided the next day – Wednesday, sacred to Mercury – would still be within the Full Moon phase.  If we tried to wait until the Moon waxed again, Mercury would have already passed out of Gemini.  So there was only one day we could do this one!  May 30th it was.

Retro Scorpio Season

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

Scorpio Season starts October 23 @ 4:22 am PDT/ 7:22 am EDT/ 11:22 am GMT until November 22.

Black is the Never out of style.

Testimony Napoleon Brousseau art, tara Greene astrology “Testimony” by Napoleon Brousseau Oil painting. Collection of Jamie Angell of Angell Gallery Toronto

But it may be one of the slowest saddest, most remorseful and oddest Scorpio months as Venus will be RETROGRADE  in SCORPIO until November 16 when she ends her 40 days and nights journey into the Underworld from Scorpio to Libra. We will only have 6 days of moving forward in Scorpio territory. That seems unusual. 

SCORPIO is the #13 in theTarot DEATH

Mars, Scorpio’s ruler is in Aquarius and remember the red planet also was Retrograde earlier in 2018. Mars in Scorpio allows us to have a bit of detached, higher consciousness about this whole retrograde letting go and reshuffling of relationship values and needs period.

Full Moon in Taurus 1° – Wednesday October 24, 2018 12:45pm EST

Tarot by Cecelia

Your creativity is heightened at this Full Moon; do not let the “I’m not budging, even if it kills me!” Taurus vibe interfere with your ability to make path choices. The time has come to choose a lane regarding at least one issue. You have everything you need to get this job done; you have acquired the skills necessary to complete the task. Dealing with your demons may be on your agenda, whether it be a bad habit, addiction, or even a health issue. The resolve is there to free oneself once and for all.

Challenges, there have been many, especially around certain relationships, with Venus still retrograde in Taurus’ opposite sign of Scorpio at the time of this Full Moon. It would appear that someone needs to change their point of view; you may have to sacrifice ego here and have a heart-to-heart talk, in order to hatch new…
