SEVEN SPHERES by Rufus Opus (Limited Edition Hardcover) Nephilim Press

 

“There are few in the field today that have both technical expertise and a genuine love of the spirits. A man who is as on-fire with the Holy Spirit as a tent-revival preacher, but who can make complex evocation instruction as clear as your ABC’s. Rufus Opus is that kind of Priest-Magician. For years he has been making laying down his brand of hermetic magic with style and sass on his blog and in his courses. Now with this book, he will be blowing open the gates for an even wider audience.”
-Jason Miller, author of Sex, Sorcery, and Spirit-

“Rufus Opus is a frequent speaker and panelist at Crucible convention that features active magical leaders from known and exotic paradigms. He has shown a great ability to add a combustive dynamic to his life through his own personal workings.” – Arthur Moyer, Omnimancer, host of Crucible Convention

“Rufus is a well educated and experienced occultist who firmly knows and strongly communicates his field without scaring or dumbing down for an audience. He is one of my go to authors for collected works on the topic.” – Andrei Freeman,

Seven Spheres is more than a simple book of traditional Hermetic Magic. It is designed to be a series of rituals that function on many levels to take an average ordinary magician and turn them into a self-actualized powerhouse of proactive reality engineering. It’s entirely about attaining initiation and empowerment in the highest levels of un-manifest reality. These experiences and rites result in the release of a floodgate of power that pour down through the layers of progressive manifestation, building up awareness, understanding, and ultimately raw potential as you move from sphere to sphere through the rites, ultimately culminating in the anointing of the magician as Priest-King directing the forces that climax in your personal daily experience of the Joy of your life. This book isn’t about physical or spiritual mastery, it is entirely about understanding that you, personally, are beloved, honored, blessed, and highly favored of every intelligence, spirit, angel, and god of every sphere. This is about understanding who you are and what you can accomplish as a human being manifest upon the surface of the Earth. Spiritual enlightenment and material mastery will be yours, if you do the work described.

Sacerdotium Umbrae Mortis by Gilles De Laval (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 200 hand numbered limited edition hardcover copies. Book is in NEW unread condition.

“The book is a complete system of initiation and ascension in the grades of The Priesthood of the Shadows of Death, an order of predatory sorcerors who specialize in the practice of energy vampirism and in the necromantic conjuration of revenant phantom shades from the eleven hells of the Qliphoth.

The system is based on meticulous research into the eleven tribes of Canaan, enemies of the Right-Hand Path who esoterically represent eleven classes of hostile, predatory vampiric shadowforms who emanate from hells of black magick and the anti-world of death. Multiple levels of correspondences and esoteric enumerations are given as well as conjuration sigils and numerous seals and illustrations so that the initiate can ritually evoke not only these necromantic shades, but their ruling princes.

The grimoire, when studied and used properly, allows brave magicians to ascend in exotic spheres of consciousness and power by communion with and transmogrification by these venomous Lords of the Abyss. Included are various lists of attributes of vampirism, the four stages of initiation, four grades of mastery, tables of days, hours, and elemental and planetary correspondences suitable for infernal conjuration, and complete descriptions of the panoply, implements and rites of vampiric necromancy that comprise the order of Sacerdotium Umbrae Mortis.”

THE BOOK OF SITRA ACHRA by N.A-A.218 (Deluxe Leather Bound Slipcased Edition)

Limited to 110 hand numbered copies, with custom made slipcase, with gilded serpentine borders on both sides, and red velvet lining. Gilded page edges on all sides, and comes with an omitted chapter in booklet form, describing a most important and fundamental ritual for the attainment of contact with the Guardian Angels of this Sacred Work of the Thoughtless God. This chapter was omitted from the standard editions, and is only available in the deluxe editions.

The Book of Sitra Achra: A Grimoire of the Dragons of the Other Side, one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2013, has finally been released, and it has not disappointed! This is the most detailed exploration of the qliphoth, since Kenneth Grant’s Nightside of Eden was published. Since then, many have tried to explore the sunken zone of Daath, and its dark, awe-inspiring spheres, and make sense of the labyrinthine network of tunnels, paths, fractures & rhizomes. Many have attempted to communicate with the denizens of these lost & forgotten realms. Some have had some success, but most have failed dismally! The past few years have seen a great awakening of interest in the qliphoth, with many books & journals published, by authors claiming to have first hand experience – unfortunately, most of what I have seen, is either poorly written fiction, or simply delusional! But at last, there is a real Qliphothic Grimoire, which looks promising. The Book of Sitra Achra contains 309 pages devoted to cataloguing the qliphoth, mapping out the Sitra Achra, and the Tree of Death, as well as other realms on the Other Side. This is not easy material to digest, and I would not recommend this to novices, at all. But those who are adept at working magic & sorcery, and have a serious interest in the qliphoth, Daath, etc, should find in this grimoire, a veritable treasure trove!

The Book of Sitra Achra is a complete grimoire, so you do not need to have read Liber Falxifer or Liber Falxifer II, to make sense of it, however, reading these books will help to shed dark light, on some of the complex structures that will be encountered in Sitra Achra. In particular, I would highly recommend reading Liber Falxifer II, as it reveals the mythos, inner-teachings & ritual practices of the Qayinitic tradition, as practiced by an order Templum Falcis Cruentis (Temple of the Black Light or TOTBL). Of course, those who feel they are ready to jump in – by all means, dive in, head first!

“QUINTESSENCE”

(The Hidden Temple Ov The Blackened Serpent)

“Within the darkness of the Abyss, lies the whispered chant of the Blackened Serpent…”

Through the sacrifice of blood and libations, the Blackened Serpent is called forth to guide the Initiate deep within themselves, to descend into the spiraling labyrinths of primordial sub-consciousness only discovered within the power zones of Chaos itself. The Serpent speaks of ancient wisdom through its writhing dance of ancestral rites…rites laced with carnal lust and shattered sanity.

This transcendence of limitation, connects the Black Magician with the concealed regions of the Astral Plane, where the psyche is transformed into a representation of the Blackened Serpent itself, thus self sustaining through the creation of a universe in the deepest recesses of the human mind. At the core of this sinister process, the Black Magician begins to crystallize and perceive his own true essence, which is in itself, the center of the inextinguishable Black Flame of Chaos manifest…

It is by true Intent alone, that the Initiate is able to traverse the hardened and lonesome path of illumination that lies in still darkness. It is by sheer determination and want of truth that empowers the Black Magician to explore the inner realms of self, which lie inside the mind and spirit.

Within this dark anthology, one will find a collection of the many teachings of the Blackened Serpent, as can only be told by true practitioners of the LHP. These teachings take many forms, each unique to the Black Magician revealing their own hard and personal lesson…on the winding path of Midnight’s Serpent…

 

TECHNIQUES OF GREAECO-EGYPTIAN MAGIC by Stephen Skinner (Deluxe Leather Bound Hardcover Edition)

 

Signed deluxe leather bound limited edition of only 100 numbered copies. Book is in new unread condition.

This book uses academic tools to uncover the techniques which were actually used by Graeco-Egyptian magicians. This book will really strengthen your understanding of magic and its roots. After reading it magic will no longer be something to theorise about, but a real practice, a real interaction with divinities, daimones, spirits and even the dead, using evocation, invocation, skrying, dream techniques, talismans, amulets, defixiones, sacrifice and spirit offerings, ensouling magical statues and consecrating rings. It also explains the necessary protection for the magician, the circle and phylacteries.

Magical objectives include love (by attraction, compulsion, insomnia and ‘love’s leash’), health, invisibility, foreknowledge and memory. There are detailed sections on bowl and lamp skrying, the sending of dreams, encountering a god, and the Mystery rites for fellowship with the gods. First steps include the invocation of the paredros, the daimon assistant and the correct purity and fasting procedures. Encounter Thesallos of Tralles who persuaded an Egyptian priest to manifest a god for him, and the techniques that his Egyptian priest used to do this.

Egypt was at the heart of magic, and the Graeco-Egyptian papyri are the clearest and most extensive documentation of some of its earliest methods. These papyri were the handbooks of practicing magicians who lived during the first five centuries of this era. But attempting to read the Graeco-Egyptian magical papyri in Hans Dieter Betz’s English translation The Greek Magical Papyri in Translation is a daunting task, as they seem to be in no particular order (except for papyrus number). Furthermore the papyri are a mixture of many different techniques, with minor snippets mixed in with serious and long invocations, many without the basic instructions needed to perform these rites.

Stephen Skinner discovered that in the original Greek, then they have a perfectly logical structure, as the scribes have in most cases used a headword to indicate what kind of rite was involved. This headword has however mostly been lost in translation. What Stephen Skinner has done here is to separate and tabulate each of the 40+ techniques used by Graeco-Egyptian magicians, throwing an enormous amount of light on these very practical texts. In many cases the translator has taken the easy way out and just used words like ‘spell’ or ‘charm’ to translate dozens of different technical words which are necessary for understanding exactly what is going on. Skinner has rectified this by extracting each of these specialist Greek terms for different magical procedures and, showing what they really mean, and has divided up the papyri into its constituent methods, so that the reader is directed to the specific passages relevant to his interest. The result is more than a guide to the papyri, it is a complete survey and explanation of the functioning of the types of Graeco-Egyptian magic, often noting where such techniques appear again in the later grimoires. If you want to understand Graeco-Egyptian magic, this is where you should start.

 

LIBER LUNAE: Book of the Moon & Sepher ha-Levanah edited by Don Karr with Translation by Calanit Nachshon (Deluxe Signed Leather Bound Hardcover Edition)

 

One of only 150 deluxe signed leather bound hardcover edition.

Liber Lunae is a composite text containing three major sections:

The Mansions of the Moon, describing the operations of the 28 constellations of the lunar zodiac, their magical virtues and their names.
The Hours of the Day and Night, describing the operations of the 12 hours of the day and the 12 hours of the night, their names, virtues, talismanic images, and angels to invoke.

Liber Lunae is fully transcribed from a sixteenth-century English manuscript, annotated, edited, and supplemented by modernized English versions of ‘The Hours of the Day and Night’, ‘The Figures of the Planets’, and ‘The Mansions of the Moon’, combining both Liber Lunae and Sepher ha-Levanah.

Transcriptions of related material on talismanic images and on the virtues of different hours and their names from other sections of Sloane MS 3826 are also included. The full introduction places the material contained in Liber Lunae into the general scheme of magical literature.

This volume also features a facsimile of A. W. Greenup’s 1912 edition of Sepher ha-Levanah, a Hebrew version of Liber Lunae material. A full English translation of Sepher ha-Levanah prepared by Calanit Nachshon is included.

 

Sepher Raziel: A Sixteenth Century English Grimoire or Liber Salomonis by Stephen Skinner & Don Karr (Deluxe Signed Leather Bound Hardcover Edition)

One of only 250 signed and numbered leather bound deluxe hardcover copies. Book is in new unread condition.

Sepher Raziel – also called Liber Salomonis – is a full grimoire in the Solomonic tradition from a rare sixteenth century English manuscript. It is completely different from the Sepher Raziel ha-Melakh published by Steve Savedow, and is the oldest grimoire so far published in the Sourceworks of Ceremonial Magic series, and shows clear signs of it Hebrew and Greek roots, quoting both Solomon and Hermes.

It contains seven treatises:

Clavis, concerned with astrology and its use in magic, with precise interactions between planets, Signs, and Houses;
Ala, outlining the magical virtues of stones, herbs, and animals;
Tractatus Thymiamatus, which deals with incense, and perfumes used in the Art;
Treatise of Times detailing the correct hours of the day for each operation;
Treatise on Preparations on ritual purity, and abstinence;
Samaim, on the different heavens and their angels; and finally,
Semiforas or a Book of Names and their virtues and properties, being seven semiforas attributed to Adam and seven semiforas attributed to Moses.
The Sepher Raziel text is given in two forms: a literal transcription with no changes in spelling or wording, and a full modern annotated English version.

This volume also includes a foreword which offers an overview of Raziel manuscripts, which represent a number of independent traditions, an essay on the literature of Solomonic magic in English, an introduction to the Sepher Raziel manuscript itself, an appendix on incense names, botanical names and identification, a list of printed notices and manuscript sources of Sepher Raziel, and a full bibliography of printed works on Solomonic magic and items of related interest.

 

THE MAGICAL TREATISE OF SOLOMON or HYGROMANTEIA by Loannis Marathakis & Stephen Skinner (Deluxe, Leather Bound Limited Hardcover)

One of only 150 deluxe leather bound and hand numbered hardcover edition.

Translated and edited by Ioannis Marathakis
Foreword by Stephen Skinner

This is the true ancestor of the Key of Solomon. Containing the full translation of the Hygromanteia. This book is sometimes called the Hygromanteia, and this book has hidden behind the mistaken idea that all of it is a work on water divination, a scholarly mistake that has hidden the true value of this book for centuries. Throughout history thousands of people have been fascinated by the grimoire the Key of Solomon. This is the original Greek book of magic that was the source of the Key of Solomon, and in turn the ancestor of most of the grimoire-based ceremonial magic practiced in Europe and the US today.

This is a ground-breaking work. For the first time (outside of a handful of pages in academic works) the full Greek original of the Key of Solomon appears in English.

Contrary to popular opinion the Key of Solomon was not translated from a Hebrew original. During the gradual decline and fall of the Byzantine Empire, this precious text, along with many others, was taken to Italy. This may even have happened when Constantinople was sacked in 1453. It is quite likely that it was taken to Venice, where parts of it were translated into Latin and Italian.

Abridged Latin copies entitled the Clavicula Salomonis circulated in Europe, going through many changes, languages and versions to become the Key of Solomon as we know it (some of those manuscripts are published as Volume IV of the present series). Now for the first time you can read the whole text (large portions of which were left out of the Latin translations).

 

CRYSTAL GAZING by Northcote W. Tomas (Hardcover Edition)

 

Crystal Gazing is a facsimile of an original manuscript by Northcote W. Thomas, a prominent anthropologist, who did a very serious study on crystal gazing and scrying techniques in use all over the world. Thomas is able to present the information in an easy to read manner that takes all of the guesswork out of the processes in use throughout the book.

The Nephilim Press edition contains a full transcription of the original text and includes all of the images that are often omitted from later editions. “The Speculum and how to use it, Incantations and Calls, Egyptian Scrying, Experiments, Evidential Cases, and a Comprehensive Bibliography,” are just some of the chapters in this work that make it such a valuable reference. Crystal Gazing is the perfect companion to Gateways Through Stone and Circle as It contains a wealth of information on the process of Scrying and the use of a “SCRYER” as well as the Speculum and ritual hardware. This is a fantastic reference for anyone who is experimenting with Frater Ashen Chassans techniques and its study will greatly aid the practitioner in making serious progress with his experiments.

36 FACES The History, Astrology and Magic of the Decans by Austin Coppock (Special Hardcover Limited Edition in Custom Slipcase)

 

A special hardcover, handbound in full leather, with one of 36 unique talismanic enclosures depicting the genius of each of the decans, marbled endpapers, with custom slipcase.

Click on Images tab above to see more pictures of this unique title.

There is a thread that runs through over four millennia of astrological and magical history, a cord that binds ancient Egypt with the Hellenistic world, the Arabian empire, India, the European Renaissance and even touches the present. That thread is the Decans, a division of the earth’s sky into 36 sections. These 36 ‘Faces of Heaven’ are more than just a curious footnote in the history of archaeo-astronomy. First emerging in ancient Egypt, they have moved with the corpus of Hermetic material, reincarnating in the starry wisdom of culture after culture.

Ostensibly a gear in astrology’s encompassing clockworks, the Decans have also long been a key to accessing legions of spirits. For several millennia and in multiple cultures, magicians have looked at these 36 faces and seen gods, choirs of angels, hordes of demons, and a host of daimones staring back at them, each with its own unique powers. Far from going undocumented, this gallery of faces has been painted and drawn by a host of astrologers, sorcerers and artists, and they can be found on walls of Italian villas as well as in the pages of grimoires.

Weaving together astrology and magic, divination and sorcery, time and sky, this thread of esoteric history deserves more than the footnotes it has so far received. In this work, Austin Coppock follows the Decans through history, charting their trajectory through time and culture. Using the ring of keys which history provides, the 36 doors are flung open, revealing their mysteries to magician and astrologer alike. Each decan, its image, and its specific powers are examined in detail, as well as its permutations in the planetary aspects. Featuring original images specially created for each Decan by Bob Eames, 36 Faces is an invaluable resource for magicians, astrologers, and historians of magical semiotics.

Plus a signed and inscribed postcard by the publisher.

Starfire Publishing, London, 2008. 332 pages, with a frontispiece, a section of twenty-six plates (many in colour) and illustrated endpapers. Sewn hardback with boards bound in black cloth, protected with an attractive full-colour dust-jacket designed by Steffi Grant.

Outside the Circles of Time was first published in 1980. It has been newly typeset, with some of the original illustrations now in colour, and augmented with previously unpublished artwork by Steffi Grant. The fifth volume in the series of Grant’s Typhonian Trilogies, this is a work that covers an extremely wide area and exposes – to quote from the jacket of the 1980 edition – “a network more complex than was ever imagined: a network not unlike H.P. Lovecraft’s dark vision of sinister forces lurking at the rim of the universe”. Outside the Circles of Time explores a complex of such ideas, from Blavatsky’s Secret Doctrine, Crowley’s Book of the Law, Lovecraft’s Necronomicon, and Frater Achad’s researches. It also explores the work of Soror Andahadna, a contemporary Priestess of Maat whose work has parallels with that of Frater Achad some decades previously when he announced the inauguration of the Aeon of Maat in 1948. On the more orthodox premise that each Aeon lasts 2,000 years, we are at the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, so the Aeon of Maat might appear a long way off yet. However, the following passage from Outside the Circles of Time puts the matter in a different light:

Myths and legends are of the past, but Maat should not be thought of in terms of past or future aeons. Maat is present now for those who, knowing the ‘sacred alignments’ and the ‘Gateway of Inbetweenness’, experience the Word ever coming, ever emaning, from the Mouth, in the ever new and ever present forms that are continually being generated from the mystical Atu or House of Maat, the Ma-atu . . .

But the book is not simply or even primarily about the Aeon of Maat. It is a potent weaving of a host of apparently diverse strands into a broad, deep and powerful current. Though Grant’s volumes in the Typhonian Trilogies have each a unique flavour, Outside the Circles of Time seemed to herald a jump into a different dimension. To round off this synopsis, the closing paragraphs are taken from the Introduction. They convey at once the direction and flavour of this rich and powerful book:

One final point is here relevant, and I state it without apology. It is not my purpose to try to prove anything; my aim is to construct a magical mirror capable of expressing some of the less elusive images seen as shadows of a future aeon. This I do by means of suggestion, evocation, and by those oblique and ‘inbetweenness concepts’ that Austin Spare defined as ‘Neither-Neither’. When this is understood, the reader’s mind becomes receptive to the influx of certain concepts that can, if received undistortedly, fertilize the unknown dimensions of his consciousness. In order to achieve this aim a new manner of communication has to be evolved; language itself has to be reborn, revivified, and given a new direction and a new momentum. The truly creative image is born of creative imagining, and this is – ultimately – an irrational process that transcends the grasp of human logic.

It is well known that scientists and mathematicians have evolved a cryptic language, a language so elusive, so fugitive, and yet so essentially cosmic that it forms an almost qabalistic mode of communication, often misinterpreted by its own initiates! Our position is not quite as desperate, for we are dealing primarily with the body-mind complex in its relation to the universe, and the body-aspect is deeply rooted in the soil of sentiency. Our minds may not understand, but in the deeper layers of subconsciousness where humanity shares a common bed, there is instant recognition. Similarly, a magician devises his ceremony in harmony with the forces he wills to invoke, so an author must pay considerable attention to the creation of an atmosphere that is suitable for his operations. Words are his magical instruments, and their vibrations must produce not a merely arbitrary noise, but an elaborate symphony of tonal reverberations that trigger a series of increasingly profound echoes in the consciousness of his readers. One cannot over-emphasize or over-estimate the importance of this subtle form of alchemy, for it is in the nuances, and not necessarily in the rational meanings of the words and numbers employed, that the magick resides. Furthermore, it is very often in the suggestion of certain words not used, yet indicated or employed by other words having no direct relation to them, that produce the most precise definitions. The edifice of a reality-construct may sometimes be reared only by an architecture of absence, whereby the real building is at one and the same time revealed and concealed by an alien structure haunted by probabilities. These are legion, and it is the creative faculty of the reader – awake and active – that can people the house with souls. So then, this book may mean many things to many readers, and different things to all; but to none can it mean nothing at all, for the house is constructed in such a manner that no echo can be lost.

THE BOOK OF AZAZEL by E. A. Koetting (Limited Edition Hardcover)

Limited to only 666 numbered limited edition hardcovers. This being number 269. Book is in fine condition.

From the author:

“That which follows is the entirety of what I learned from the Demon during a ninety-day journey through hell, with Azazel as my guide. To Azazel… I can only trust that when this work is completed, he will set me free. Azazel is the embodiment of all that is forbidden, all that is secret, and all that I would sacrifice everything for. He called upon me to perform this damnable Operation: to commit myself to Him entirely, in order to possess all that is His. But fear overtook me. I didn’t feel ready to drink from that cup, and so I drank from many others, flirting with the power that I knew could only be found in the blackest of rites and through the most obscene pacts. The Demon’s call would not be silenced, and it forced me out of the serenity of Ascent, leaving me with no choice than to embrace the power of darkness, in a depth and intensity that I had never before imagined. The Book of Azazel initially seemed to mark my return to the Left Hand Path, to the sinister spirituality responsible for catapulting me into the knowledge and application of my own godhood. As the grimoire unfolded, day-by-day, what the Demon Azazel revealed to me obliterated every assumption that I’ve ever made, and has left me with little else to say. The magnitude of Azazel’s teachings have left me speechless, for the first time in decades. What is recorded in this book: the rituals, the evocations, and the revelations.. says all that can ever be said, and much, much more. It has also left me with the conviction that real power – the kind that can crumble nations and raise empires out of the sand – can only be found in the forbidden, in the demonic, beyond the horizon of damnation. And so I tremble as I present The Book of Azazel.”

LIBER FALXIFER II The book of Anamlaqayin by N.A-A.218 (Limited Edition Hardcover)

The Second Book of Master Falxifer will delve further into the Necrosophic mysteries of Qayin, but will also cast a black light on some crucial aspects previously hinted at and at the same time veiled, in the first book of the Left-Handed Reaper. One of these all-important aspects concerns the identity of and the gnosis granted by the Hidden Mother of Our Bloodline, the Bride of Qayin. The work will once again present an extensive set of both worded and wordless manifestations of Sorcerous Gnosis and provide access to previously hidden keys to both low and high forms of Necrosophic Nigromancy, Necromancy, Ancestral Veneration, Herbal Demonology and give new detailed instruction about how the powers of the insignias, talismans and fetishes of the Lord of the Harvest can be further employed in order to achieve both temporal and spiritual power, victory and transcendence, all by walking in the fiery and blessed footsteps of the First Ones who traversed the Paths of Nod. Some of the topics presented within the Second Book of Our Master are: esoteric discourses revealing the mythic foundation of our Qayinitic Gnosticism, the Hidden Bride of Qayin, Her secret formulas of Calling and Names of Power, Her sigils of both high and low sorcery, the unified and transcendent aspect of the Twin-Flame of Sataninsam, the Dark Dead and their hidden and most fearful aspects, the cleansing, protective and empowering baths, the herbal formulas and activations of the 7 Key Sigils of Death, the Mysteries of the Black In Green, exploring the powers of the First Tiller and the workings of the Esoteric Sigil of the Green Skull, the rites of protection and concealment, instructions concerning the creation and employing of the Qayinitic Bone Talismans (i.e. Payes), specific fetishes of some of the most important aspects of the Master, like for example the Fetish of the Lord of the Mound and the Skull of the First Harvester, the role of the First Dead within the Cult and His Sigils of Calling, talismanic work against the law, the ensouling Tinctures of Qayin and His Rose-Crowned Bride, the secret Kelim of Baaltzelmoth, the Grand Kliffotic Sigil of the King of the Ravens of Death, further teachings concerning the Mighty Dead and the workings of the Altar of the Dead, prayers, invocations and talismanic forms used for the channelling of the powers of both the soul and the spirit of Qayin and much more.

Limited Edition Hardcover book in black cloth with a gold stamping of Sigil of Anamlaqayin on the cover, black endpapers, gold silk-ribbon bookmark. Fullcover dustjacket. 474 pages, numerous illustrations. First Edition of 1200 copies, each book consecrated and hand numbered. Book is in near fine condition

WELSH WITCHES AND WIZARDS by Michael Howard (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 300 hand numbered limited edition hardcover copies. This is 115 of 300 and is in fine condition

The widespread belief in witches and wizards in Wales reflects a land steeped in legend and myth since ancient times. The witch’s power to harm people, livestock, and crops was greatly feared; for this reason country people consulted with so-called ‘cunning men’ and ‘wise women’ who had the power to negate their spells with counter-magic. Cunning-folk practitioners were also consulted for love spells, to find lost property or missing persons, exorcise ghosts and banish evil spirits. The figures of both witch and wizard form part of a broader folk-magic continuity in Wales. This popular belief in witchcraft bears little relation to modern neo-pagan Wicca, and there is little evidence of its linkage to a nature religion based on a pre-Christian fertility cult.

This book describes the historically-attested Welsh practitioners of folk magic and witchcraft –the Dark Sisters and the Toadmen, the Druids and Wizards, the Cunning Men and Faery Doctors – and the charms and spells they used. Also examined are surviving pagan beliefs associated with holy wells and the cult of the sacred head, and the mysterious and sometimes sinister ‘creatures of the night’ such as faeries, lake monsters, dragons and Black Dogs.

The Holy Guardian Angel. On the practice and experience of the Holy Guardian Angel edited by Michael Cecchetelli (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 500 hand numbered hardcover limited edition copies! Book is in new unread condition.

From the publisher:

We did something different with this book. We sent out digital copies for review by practicing Occultists. They asked for no compensation and they will not receive anything from us. I thought that one review in particular really captured what the book is all about so well that I decided to include it here because I couldn’t do a better job of writing it up. It’s hard to improve on someone’s honest opinion. The following is taken from the Blog: The Digital Ambler, an Occult Blog.

” Whether you’ve already had contact with your HGA, or even already reached the grade of Ipsissimus in the Golden Dawn, or even are a newcomer to Hermetic magic generally, Fr. MC’s book “The Holy Guardian Angel” is going to be a wealth of information and practice for you. It’ll give you things to look forward to if you don’t yet have contact with your HGA, and it’ll give you plenty to chew on if you already do (or think you do). The book is one of the closest things we have to a textbook on working with the HGA especially when paired with things like the Book of Abramelin or Liber Samekh, but it’s also definitely one of the most approachable texts out there. To see the words and minds of these magicians put together in a single volume on a complicated subject is a treat, both intellectually and spiritually, and definitely a must-have for ceremonial magicians.

The text itself is 216 pages long, beautifully typeset and well-edited, making the reading of it a pleasure all on its own. The book is broken down into four parts: the nature of the HGA, what comes after contact and how to work with the HGA, different schools of thought about the HGA, and a whole section devoted to some of the important blog posts made during the 2011 pan-blogosphere debates on the HGA. Of course, MC himself is only one contributing author to the book, and that only in the final section; as he says in the introduction, he “realized no author had set about producing such a volume [on achieving K&CHGA], wherein are presented a diverse and varying cross-section of the beliefs on the subject, was because no single author could”. It’s a complicated subject with layers upon layers of interpretation, use, and philosophy, making writing such a book on such a spirit more daunting than any other series of tomes on almost any other part of magic.”

I could not have said it better myself. Also Mike Cecchetelli has hand picked a group of celebrated Magicians for their expertise and ability to present even the most complex of subjects in a user friendly way that will be of great benefit to seasoned practitioner and novice alike. They are:

• A Solar Spark of Light And Fire – Darren Scriven
• Nine Pieces of Heart Advice For Those Seeking The HGA – Jason Miller
• The Descended Angel – Scott Michael Stenwick
• Never Again Alone – Rufus Opus
• After Abramelin: Working With Your Holy Guardian Angel – Aaron Leitch
• Passing Through The Void: Journey To Unite With Your HGA – Frater Ashen F.N.F.
• The Voice of Light: The HGA In The Ogdoadic Tradition – Derik Richards
• Knowledge and Conversation of The HGA: One Thelemites Perspective – Kevin Abblett
• Holy Guardian Angel(s)? – Conjureman Ali
• Holy Guardian Angels, Helpful Spirits and The Genius – MC
• 2 Years Later – The HGA Revisited – MC
And more.

 

THE SCORPION GOD by Mark Alan Smith (Signed Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

The standard edition is bound in shimmering mahogany silk and embossed in gold with the seal of the Book of Forbidden Wisdom and limited to only 999 signed and numbered copies. Printed on thick high quality paper and finished with black endpapers. Twelve powerful full page illustrations. Each copy of this edition will be individually consecrated by the author in order to open the gateways within the book through which the spirits of the Atlantean current may once again flow, unbound, in the world of man. Book is in new unread condition

2012 marks the changing of the aeon. It is the dawn of the Age of the Lightbearer. The Forbidden Gnosis and Power of Belial is manifested within the pages of The Scorpion God to herald this era of Re-Awakening and the return, in full, of the Primal Atlantean Current which empowered the Ancient Witchcraft, the First Faith of man.

The third volume of the Trident consists of the Six Books of the Forbidden Wisdom of Belial, which open the gates of the Depths to the soul who follows the Path of Flames in search of the Three Great Crowns of Divinity. As Lord of the Heights and the Depths, Belial grants keys to the hidden power of the Atlantean realm. The Gates of Amenta are opened both within the soul and throughout the inner planes, allowing the adept to follow the Path of Lucifer’s Flames as it descends into the realm of the Gods of the first incarnate race. Assimilation, at soul level, of the power of the Scorpion Godform of Belial is granted in order to facilitate this transition. This is the culmination of the Path of Flames which leads the Godsoul, forged from the spirit of man, beyond the Gate of Souls and back to the throne of Hecate.

This is not solely a book of the Sacrificial Arte. It is the first gate, manifested and opened in blood, through which the Trident Kin reveal the Apocalyptic Keys. Created from flesh in bloody sacrifice, these keys unleash the Wrath of the Gods.
