Invocation of Planetary Senior ALNDVOD


The next step in exploring and understanding the forces in the Tablet of Fire, after invoking and communing with the King, is Invocation of the planetary Seniors. Today is a Monday, so the Lunar Senior was up. I conducted the opening rituals and vibrated the Invocations, and then sat down to scry the glass. A moment passed, and then a figure appeared. It was male-ish, lithe in form, and it's skin was a sky blue color. It's hair was feather-like, and a sort of rich purple. It felt very avian. It wore gloves the same color as its hair, and appeared wearing a crown. I verified that it was the correct Angel, and it responded immediately. I asked what it's nature was, and it said simply that it was the power of the moon manifested through fire.
Well....yes. Of course-I need to come up with better questions for these entities.
It then elaborated a bit, and mentioned being and said it manifested as hidden cause behind actions, as sub-conscious desires blooming into action, as the impetus behind beginnings. I asked to be initiated into understanding of this force, and it bid me to close my eyes. I felt pulled, and in scrying found myself in a garden. The angel was beside me, and the sky was black but glowing, sort of. I am aware that makes no sense. There where flowers that bloomed in the nights, and as they bloomed they released new flowers from within them, and these did the same. He told me they did this forever, that the creation continued undlessly in this fashion. He then opened his chest area and showed his heart. It waas crowned. It pumped, and the burst to overflowing with blood. This blood then poured down into a child figure at his feet, who grew into a man as his heart filled with the blood. Then his heart overflowed, and the blood filled the child at his feet. It went on and on in that fashion, meant to imply unendingly. It was a striking image. I thanked him, and returned to meditate upon that. Ill need to, because at the moment I only have a general understanding of what it means.

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
