GIRP Scorpio, and Scrying results

Ave,

As part of my gradework about a month back, I performed Invocations of the energies of Scorpio....and it was bru-tal. I found the energies to be powerful, full of dark undercurrents, pulling from the depths. Scrying the plane, I encountered a strange type of entity, like angels, only with tentacles(!?) instead of feathers and hair. They were pale and fey and beautiful, and terrible. I did the standard request for a guide, and received one. I asked it to teach me about the energies of Scorpio, and it told me...at length....about the foolishness of man, showing me an image of a crazed human digging a deep pit, laughing and crying all at once. He was digging his own grave with a golden shovel, and then railing against the gods and universe for consigning him to the grave he has dug for himself. Myself. It made me smile at myself, ruefully. I have been that fool.

The entity elaborated, and told me that the energies of Scorpio are the final lesson-givers; that the hard lessons that we as entities have failed to learn the easy way are dealt the hard way when Scorpio makes it's rounds. Scorpio is atavistic. In our selves it is connected to the subconcious. Scorpio is the deep water, the energy intimately connected to all of those things that lie beneath, that we don't look at too closely. I was also taught about the power of emotional undercurrent, that it's pull is both Lunar in action and intimately connected to the phases of the moon. It is both attractive and terrifying.

That was my experience with Scorpio-I definitely had to work hard at integrating these energies, and face some things about myself that weren't too pleasant-the most important of which being that I wasn't all that pleasant myself, underneath. That the layers of nice are exactly that, and that the person at my root is complicated, and that the path toward Union isn't one of graduating "niceness"-that my idea of Holy was going to have to change. The end result of integration and Union isn't necessarily a benevolent character, but one that is beautifully terrible. That may, of course, be purely the Scorpian perspective and gnosis, but it has the ring of truth.

I've never met an Angel that was "nice".

In LVX,

AIT

Quick overview of Simple Spagyric Technique

The following is a simple rundown for creating Spagyric tinctures and Elixirs, from the manuscript 'Book of the Blossoming Flower." I wrote it so that there would be a baseline, unobfuscated understanding of how to make Spagyric products with extremely basic tools. I posted something similar earlier, but without explaining much as far as how the steps relate to the classic alchemical progression. So, here we are!
Making a Spagyric Tincture
1.Take up your plant, and on the Day/Hour corresponding to the energy you wish to refine (Planet, Element, or Sign.) Chop the plant into fine pieces on your cutting board, beginning the Mortificatio stage. Sunrise on the Day corresponding to a planet is best-for astrological forces. I had success capturing the Astrological powers by beginning the work when the Sign is in the Ascendant, preferably during an Elemental Tide that corresponds to the Triplicity the Sign is associated with. For Elemental powers, I have found that beginning the work …

Bullshit Siddhis

Nsala malongo,
So.....powers. They exist. You work your alchemy, and they start popping up.
It isn't what you expect.
It's not like the comics.
Subtle things happen. You get a little something here, a big something there. Some of them appear useless at first.
Some years ago, after work in the upper cinnabar field, I gained the dubiously awesome ability to see a sort of spirit double floating around people. At first I was BEYOND stoked, and thought I was well on my way toward ascension from my normal state into a vicious and powerful spiritual overlord, as was foretold. By me. When I was like, fourteen.
Then, after the wonder wore off, I realized that this was absolutely useless. The double gave me no information about the person, no power to manipulate myself or the other. It was just there. So. Countless hours of heat and concentration, and the end result was this?

Of course it *was* useful in the long-run, as a mark of my developing spiritual sight. And continuing to wor…

Palo Mayombe

Ave,

I've been engaged in a deep study of Frater Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold's work Palo Mayombe, and have been steadily amazed at the deep understandings within it. For a long time I've known some small measure of what Palo is--that it is a worship-centered religion, that it is necromantically powerful. I've also known what it isn't-- Palo is not just black magic, it isn't a club an African/Afro-Latino sorcerer wields to beat people over the head. That being said, engaging in metaphysical contests with it's practitioners is generally un-wise....they don't mess about. Palo Mayombe is a fierce religion, but it Is a religion.

What I didn't know was the true depths of it's Wisdom and alchemical understanding. That's right,alchemical understanding. Palo Mayombe isn't a simple practice. It's a multi-layered and living religious and alchemical practice, and it's grasp of the forces of life are unparalleled. It's spiritual technolo…
