Ancient Greek Patriarchy

kushl0rd

I have plenty of quotes from this book but I can’t write it all. In fact, i recommend this whole book as proof. 

Here is a good one by our buddy Aristotle 

"The female, as it were, a mutilated male, and the catemenia are semen, only not pure; for there is only one thing they [Women] have not in them, the principle of the soul [psyches archen]" 

As found in ‘Women of Ancient Athens’ by Joseph R. Laurin, pg 49

Im kind of having an existential personal thing right now.

Personal shit after the jump

I was wondering, since you work with the Enochian system, if you would be able to help me out in regard to the 19 day working? I know some people use it as a sort of initiation into the system, while others don't use it at all and get along just fine, and then there are conspiracy theorists that think it's meant to bring about the apocalypse, so I'm having trouble getting a clear picture of what it's for. I want to get into the Enochian magic, but I'm not sure if I need to perform this first.

Enochian is not anywhere nearly as frightening as it seems but since its eleven at night here and I have to be at work at 6am, I will have to elaborate later. Muah.

OKAY, so. Now that I have internet I can elaborate properly.

I will always recommend the book ‘The Enochian World Of Aleister Crowley’ in order to dive into Enochian magic. It gives you the basic elements neccesary to begin practice. It gives a very important method of conjuration that will prevent any nasties that might try to fool you.

I have honestly never heard of the 19 day system so I can not give any advice for that one. BUT I do recommend working the Aethyrs first. If you have experience working with sentient entities (who have their own agenda, etc) then go ahead with some work with the Tablets. Skrying first. If you want to make requests of them, make sure you know how negotiating with spirits works and, if you have to take a firm hand, know the appropriate banishing pentagrams/hexagrams. Don’t be afraid to make demands or reject their proposals. You are the magician. You are (supposed to be) in control. If things get uncomfortable, express your unwillingness to proceed, withdraw and banish thoroughly.

Thanks haha. It’s kinda looking like that 19 day working is only really used as a sort of “initiation” by a small portion of practitioners, so I think I’ll leave it be for now haha.

Right now I’m scrying the Enochian letters to get my scrying up to par and familiarize myself with them. Once I’m through with the alphabet, I’ll probably start scrying the aethyrs and see how it goes. Probably won’t mess with the evocation side of things for awhile, unless I run into something in the aethyrs that suggests I do that.

My first experience was with the first Aethyr. Then I actually went straight into evoking the Saturn Senior of the air tablet. Sonovabitch turned my life upside down for a while but it was important so I’m grateful for the experience. Not for beginners or the faint of heart but if you’re adventurous then I’d say go for it.

Sounds pretty intense, not sure I’m quite ready for that yet haha. If I do any evocations in the near future, I’ll probably start with some of the lesser beings on the tablets to get a feel for it first. The Enochian angels seem really interesting, I’ve been wanting to work with this system for a hella long time.

Note that “The Enochian World of Aleister Crowley” this isn’t the “true” Enochian System as composed by Dee and Kelly. This book uses a modified system of Enochian, which differs in some ways to the original system. That isn’t to say it is either good or bad, but if you are wanting an unaltered form of the system, ie not infused with Golden Dawn influences, I would start with Enochian Magic for Beginners by Donald Tyson. The book is a decent starting place.

Yeah I’m trying to stick with something as close as possible to what was revealed to Dee and Kelley. I have been wanting to check out that book, but haven’t been able to yet. Enochian Vision Magic by Lon Milo Duquette really helped me get a grasp on the system haha, but I definitely could use some more books that try to stick to the original magic.

I had been using a copy of Casaubon’s A True and Faithful Relation, but since my laptop crapped out on me I haven’t been able to dig through that haha. I’d like to get my hands on a decent reproduction of Dee’s journals with the Latin bits translated, but so far I haven’t been able to.

Well, you could try it that way but… there’s a reason Kelley jumped out of his prison window. Dee made him go insane with all of the work he MADE him do and they had no idea, really, what they were doing - nor did Dee really care about the welfare of his supposed “friend”. Of course, I’m sure you won’t do that to yourself but…. newer doesn’t always mean worse. The Watchtower system is filled with holes and even Dee purists are left to speculate on certain parts. Unless you’re interested in going into the Heptarchy, the only complete system of magic Dee left for us.

IMO the Golden Dawn and Aleister Crowley did the Watchtowers a service by making it more complete and usable/workable.

I HAVE PROPER INTERNET NOW. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW RELIEVED AND EXCITED I AM RIGHT NOW. I FEEL SO ALIVE.

My girlfriend SororLotus will be doing readings

We’re going to be moving into our new apartment soon and she’s wanting to do readings for people on the basis of donations. We won’t have everything set up for at least a few weeks but I wanted to get the word out in case anyone wanted to know. If you guys could spread the word I will update you on when she’ll be able to start.

So I was in my History class yesterday and my Prof started talking about the church reformation, Martin Luther, etc, how the Church responded, and how Muslim cultures saved all of the texts that were banned or burned and thrown out. I had mage feels and my heart skipped a beat because I know that the lot of ritual magic today came from Arabic texts

I realize that, ever since I lost my main internet connection, this blog has become mostly just a venue to bitch at people when it was originally just for my golden dawn stuff. Some day I’ll be less of a bitch but people like that one fucking condescending trad witch guy pissed me the hell off. Yeah, dude just ignore all of the intelligent rebuttals I wrote and stay on your high horse with your ignorance.
