Invocation of Planetary Senior AAIRNNAP

He appeared immediately in the orb. His head was that of a Raven, and he was covered in a thick layer of black feathers, although his shape was that of a man. He wore a breastplate of dark pitted metal (Lead?), and stood unblinking. His gaze was indifferent-neither fierce nor pleasant. I greeted him, and asked for his name. I connected with him, and heard his "voice". I asked him of his nature, and he told me he was of Death and Change, the beginning of Endings. I asked him how his power was manifest macrocosmically, and he said in Entropy, in the fires of decay. I asked him how his power was manifest microcosmically, and he basically implied they manifested the same within as without, burning away dross and reducing things from complication to simplicity. He was almost the opposite of the Venusian Senior of Fire-although they both are intimately connected with Energy, the fire of life. One is the growth and increase cycle, the other is the burning down and decrease. Very interesting, in that the process of Decay is apparantly as fiery and bombastic as Growth; only it simplifies and reduces instead of complicating and increasing. Two flip sides of the same coin.

I asked him why the Enochian Elemental angels had appeared thus far as Avian in aspect, and he told me this was a perception of part of their nature. That they are intemediaries between heaven and earth, that they are of the heavens, but bound to Earth.

This is not the case with the entities on the Tablet of Union, only those of the tablets/Watchtowers. Ill have to meditate on this.....

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 w

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 s

Hoodoo and Palo Mayombe

This is an article I wrote for the Lemba Congo American Society for the Preservation of Palo Mayombe (or simply the Society, as we call it, because that's a whole lot of name) that addresses heating and cooling spirits, and the links of tradition and approach between Hoodoo and Palo Mayombe.    There is a way of thinking about reality--and learning to interact with it--that empowers all of the Congo-rooted magical systems currently alive here in the West. Having years of experience as a conjurer in the Hoodoo tradition here in America, and learning from an experienced Tata the methods of Palo Mayombe as an Engueyo,  I continually am finding parallels between the two. There are two ideas in particular that stand out that I wanted to discuss. Heating and Cooling Spirits In Hoodoo, we "heat" a spirit to great activity using herbs and roots and powders, and "cool" a spirit using water and herbs and roots as well. The concept of heating and cooling a spirit
