Metal Magick

Metal Magick

Adapted from various sources, sources unknown.

ALUMINUM *Projective/Mercury/Air/Male
Aluminum is the most abundant metallic element on the earth and the moon. 8% of the earth’s crust is composed of aluminum in some form. Almost all rocks contain aluminosilicate minerals. The human body also contains traces of aluminum.
Powers of Aluminum: A conductor of electricity.

Magick Uses: A Modern metal with no Magick history. Aluminum foil can be used to fashion shapes for image Magick.

BOJI STONES *Projective/Mars/Fire/*Akasha
Powers of Boji Stones: Protection/Healing/Psychic Power.

Magickal Uses: Use for grounding and healing by holding the stone in your hand while visualizing. Use these stones to protect and strengthen your psychic defenses.
Balance: Wear to balance energies within the body

BRASS*Projective/Sun/Fire/Male
Powers Of Brass: Healing/ Money/Protection
Associated Deities: Sun deities

Magick Uses: Brass can be used as a substitute for gold for money attracting Magick rituals and spells. A simple money attracting *talisman that can easily be made is to inscribe a pentagram on a small piece of brass and carry it with you at all times. Brass is used for sun Magick and fire Magick rituals and spells. Sun Magick spells used to attract wealth and money should be performed at sunrise. Because brass has protective attributes it is used for defensive Magick to protect and send back negativity to the sender. Brass jewelry is worn for this purpose during such rituals.

COPPER (Cu/cuprum) *Receptive/Venus/Water/Female
The human body contains traces of copper.
Powers Of Copper: Conductor of electricity/Healing/Love/Luck/Protection
Associated Deities: Ishtar, Aphrodite and Astarte, and other Goddesses associated with Venus.

Magick Uses: Copper is used to make wands to direct energy during ritual. It is also worn during ritual to increase the direction of energy towards the desired goal. Pure copper is also worn for healing and to prevent sickness. It is said that copper should be worn on the opposite side of your dominate hand. For example, if you are right handed then wear copper on your left side. Because it is associated with the planet Venus it is also worn to attract love. It is highly effective for attracting love when copper is combined with emeralds. Balance: Copper has the ability to balance the polarities of the body, this is why copper is used to heal and prevent sickness. Copper balances the flow of energies in the body, both receptive and projective. When a person feels ill, it is believed that the energies in the body are not in balance or are blocked and copper is worn to balance these energies and stimulate the natural healing of the body.
WARNING: In the book, Metalen En Hun Effecten, Roos Leffebure(Dutch), Copper has a physical effect as well as an emotional effect. If worn for too long the physical effect can result in bluish of the skin with a smell, headaches and an unstable heart rhythm. The emotional effect is like silver, it produces emotional instability if worn for too long. (Contributed by Jef Bracke )

ELECTRUM (A mixture of metals)*Projective/Sun/Fire/Male
Powers Of Electrum: To find a natural mixture of metals is rare. Today electrum is custom made for specific ritual purposes. For example, uniting the receptive and projective qualities such as when gold and silver are mixed together or symbolically uniting the God and Goddess.

GOLD (Au/aurum) *Projective/Sun/Fire/Male
Powers Of Gold: Power/Success/Wealth/Strength/Protection/Male Dysfunction
Associated Deities: Sun Gods

Magick Uses: Use for fire Magick, sun Magick, spells and rituals for money and to increase power, self-confidence and courage. Gold and a white candle are used for protection spells. Wearing gold jewelry or a *talisman, to attract success, wealth, and to Invoke the Sun God. Gold worn during a ritual enhances the ability to gather up and send out power. A substitute for gold to use in money attracting spells is Pyrite (also known as Fool’s Gold)

IRON (Fe/ferrum)*Projective/Mars/Fire/Male
The human body contains traces of iron.
Powers of Iron: Protection/Healing/Strength
Associated Deities: Selene

Magick Uses: Pure form is found only in Meteorites. Used for defensive Magick to deflect negativity. Iron stops the flow of psychic energy and is used for healing the self when one feels emotional wrought or is under psychic attack, in this way it deflects negative energy. Iron inscribed with symbolic Mars is worn for protective and defensive Magick. Also you can take iron nails and insert them in white or blue candles for protection and defensive Magick. A talisman of iron is said to increase physical strength. Envisioning a large Iron Gate of old during a protection spells helps to mentally keep negative away.

LEAD (Pb/plumbum)*Receptive/Saturn/Earth/Female
Powers of Lead: Protection

Magick Uses: To be used for defensive and protective Magick to deflect negative energies.
WARNING: Lead is poisonous when absorbed by the body.

LODESTONE (Magnetite/natural magnet/natural iron oxide)
*Receptive/Venus/Water/Female Was used by sailors and mariners to find the magnetic North.
Powers of Lodestone: to attract love, money, friendship, and power/Protection/Fidelity

Magickal Uses: Lodestone has a natural magnetic quality and the larger the stone the greater its magnetic powers. It is used for attraction. It can worn during ritual, or placed on an alter to increase a spell’s powers. Lodestone can also be used for healing by placing the stone on the hurt part of the body. After the spell or ritual is performed and the stone has absorbed the negative energies, the stone should be cleaned. It can also be placed in the receptive hand while performing spells or for emotional healing.

MERCURY (Hg/hydrargyrum)*Duel Energies/Water, Earth, Air/Male/Female
WARNING: Mercury is poisonous! It is dangerous to touch breath and accidentally ingest. Use other metals that are safer.

SILVER (Ag/argentum)*Receptive/moon/water/Female
Power of Silver: Intuition/Emotions/Psychic
Mind/Dreams/Love/Protection/Invocation of the Goddess
Associated Deities: Moon Goddesses

Magick Uses: Use for water Magick, scrying, divination, dreams, rituals invoking the Goddess and love and healing spells. Silver reflects negativity away. Silver influences the psychic mind increasing your chances for psychic dreams and enhancing intuition. Silver can be used for scrying. Take a piece of silver with you outside on a full moon and allow the silver to catch the reflection of the moon. Silver is also associated with the stones, Lapis Lazuli, Jade, Pearl and Emerald. When one of these stones are used together with silver as in a piece of jewelry it is used to attract love. Wear silver to sleep with a stone such as moonstone to enhance psychic dreams.
Balance: If wearing too much silver overwhelms you and makes you emotionally overwhelmed, try wearing gold with it to balance out.

STEEL*Projective/Mars/Fire/Male

Magick Uses: A modern metal without history of Magick use. Since it is a projective metal it is used today for defensive Magick to deflect negative energies away. Steel knives are used either through visualization or physically held while visualizing negative impulses and all negative energies away from yourself. Afterwards take the knife and place it under your mattress to symbolically serve as protection and to block negative energies from disturbing your thoughts at night. A steel knife used in this manner is for symbolism and visualization.
Important to Note if one works with the Dead: Steel is considered to be threatening the the Dead and they will not pass where Steel sits, when working and invoking the Dead to aid in workings, you must invoke them with a Bronze Sword.
Use caution when handling a knife.

TIN (Sn/stannum)*Projective/Jupiter/Air/Male
The main component for Pewter.
Powers Of Tin: Money/ Luck

Magick Uses: Made into money attracting *talismans

Apollo

The Birth and Song of Apollo
Latona our Goddess was swollen heavy with the seed of Heaven. She crossed the Tigris-Euphrates River in the pangs of labour. As she reached the distant shore, Her water broke, causing the first life-giving flood of inundation. Clutching the earth, she cried – and at that cry all worlds were silenced. Latona’s fingers marking the sand, and then arose the Sons of Earth, who danced the dance of sword and shield.
In the course of time, Latona gave birth to the Moon Diana and to the Sun Apollo. They were the Twin Wolves ever by the side of our Mistress of the Night.
The isles of Greece! the isles of Greece!
Where burning Saphho loved and sung,
Where grew the arts of war and peace,
Where Delos rose and Phoebus sprung!
To the light and rays of the Mighty Sun.
Protected by Jupiter and Neptune alike
Bring his son to this Earth to heal Mankind.
The Golden Wolf of The Sun is he,
Sol Invictus, Apollo, Phoebus, Delphinus and Lucifer,
Bringer of Light, healer to all, poet, musican
Apollo is of all
As upon this night of honour to Apollo,
We stand before He, our God, our Sun God
We venerate, honour, work and serve he.
As his rays now again to awaken and to rise,
Let the Sun God Awaken and been so seen by all eyes.
As it is our song to thee Apollo, Phoebus, Sol Invictus, Lucifer
We honour thee.
Hymn to Apollo
How Apollo’s laurel sapling shakes!
How the whole temple shakes! Away, away with the wicked!
It must be Phoebus kicking at the door with his fair foot.
Do you not see? The Delian palm nods gently,
All of a sudden; the swan sings beautifully in the air.
Bolts of the doors thrust yourselves back.
Keys–open the doors! For the god is no longer far away.
So, young men, prepare yourselves for singing and dancing.
Apollo appears not to all, only to the good.
He who sees him is great; who does not is lowly.
We will see you, Worker from Afar, and we will never be lowly.
Let the cithara not be silent.
Nor your step noiseless with Apollo approaching, you children,

Grimoires and the Solomonic Tradition

Grimoires and the Solomonic Tradition

I would like to talk about grimoires. Not a specific grimoire, like the Key of Solomon, or Heptameron, or Lemegeton. This isn’t even about their contents, or their history. No, what I want to talk about are the actual physical grimoires—those dangerous things made of paper and cardboard, with arcane scribbles of ink on their pages. Books that at various time and places (including to this very day) could get you arrested and worse.

20th August 2017 — Solar Eclipse Energies

Solar Eclipse Chart

 

This Eclipse is above the earth in the Mid-heaven and this means that following in the next five to eight months the effects shall start to be seen and shall be in affect from anywhere from six to fourteen months.

This Eclipse is located in the tenth house and the ten house represents the following;

The Tenth House:

We have here the house that rules higher levels of the government, and that of the ruling class of all countries nation’s prestige, its “aristocracy,” and the opinion other countries hold of the nation. This is where the national identity becomes wholly conscious and strives to achieve the most ample portions of the collective dream.

Being a Solar Eclipse and in Leo of the third face/decan of the sign, this eclipse portends an increase in building fires, the breaking down of government as we also have Mars in conjunction with the Sun and this will show an increase in wars, conflicts it will also have an impact on imprisonment of corruption with high level figures, military interference in towns and cities as well as an increase in violent death as well as more younger men in death.  With the fire energy we shall see more in the ways of gun shot deaths across the globe.  Diseases of the blood are also common and as Leo rules the heart a rise in heart diseases.  It also presages and increase in looting as well as the destruction of holy places with Mercury being in the nature of this placement of the eclipse with Leo there is also to be presages an increase in rains, thunder and lightening storms and I have been feeling for some time we may even see martial law occur in some areas.

With this being a fire sign Eclipse I would recommend for protection upon your home and body, on the night of this Eclipse to light a Red Candle and place it in your East Window where the Sun will originally come through as well as lighting and invoking the energy of Michael the Archangel to protect your home and body from harm of any kind and to be wise.

Many people are fascinated by the sight of Eclipses, but dating back as far as they have occurred they have always been that of bad omens.  It is the blocking of the light in which creates this energy.  The ancients knew this as did all other cultures that worked with the heavens and stars daily as their guide to the seasons and when it was best to plant, move, marry and more.

The power of imagination

 

by: Ina Custers van Bergen

In occult circles there is an interesting discussion going on, fueled by the need of scientific proof for esoteric assumptions and claims about historical legacy. First of all I want to state that I think scientific evidence for historical claims is very important.   At the same time I want to emphasize to protect a crucial aspect of the spiritual traditions: the power of imagination. Loosing that power would mean: throwing away the baby with the bathwater! The world i-magi-nation contains the word ‘magic’. The definition of Magic is “The art and science to create changes in consciousness”, causing changes in your life. That very art is endangered when the scientific movement within the occult community would tip the balance at the cost of the power of imagination!

The power of imagination is underestimated in mainstream society. In medicine, doctors talk derogatory about the ‘placebo effect’. Some of the illnesses that people suffer from, are located ‘between the ears’. Meaning: you have a psychological problem rather than a physical one. Expressions like ‘this only exists in your imagination’, or ‘he has an overactive imagination’ are no compliments.   At the other hand there are complete industries, whose only business it is to charm you by influencing you, using  imagination. First of all, think of all the arts: here the use of the imagination is purest. In its most positive form, arts use the power of the metaphor to create awareness about society and enchant by beauty. Soon it becomes dubious, and degrades in shades of grey. For example in the fashion industry: from the genuine wish to create beauty the industries degrades into cosmetic operations on healthy people, and is co-responsible in causing eating disorders in insecure adolescents. Think of companies who constantly try to influence you to buy their products and even pay scientists for a favorable outcome of scientific research.  Think of politicians who try to degrade their opponents by associating them with ‘nazis’ or other fearful archetypes. All these industries use the power of imagination to enchant you, so that you make choices that are beneficial for them.

They do that by creating mindscapes.   A mindscape is a landscape in the mind. By a mindscape you define who you are, what you believe in, what motivates you and what stimulates you to action. Propaganda and marketing companies do that by videos consisting of powerful images, combined with melodies and spells. They abuse the powerful techniques that belong to religion, shamanism and magic. We are less and less protected by ‘beliefs’ embedded in the spiritual traditions, that – with all their failures – at least give us a structure of human values, personal development and stewardship over the planet.

Mindscapes in the imagination can also be are extremely important psychological and magical constructs, to observe the unfolding events around us. Creating powerful mindscapes of our own, makes us more independent and protects us against the ongoing propaganda surrounding us. For this reason:  I consider it to be the job of modern magicians, to raise awareness in the audience, for this side of  a reality that we  are living in, or captured in. And when necessary: alter that reality and choose a better one!

Astro Weather for the week ending 30th August

There are both Mars and Mercury in which are in good positions for Astrological Talismans at this time.  Saturn is in trip and peregrine in motion placing him farthest from the earth making his true nature of destruction by fires, earthquakes, chaos, aggressive tendencies, and pinning one against another.

In October of this year we will have two eclipses, I did not write anything on this years eclipses to date, but I will be working on the October ones for sure and posting them here for all of you to enjoy.

We will be having a Total Lunar Eclipse on the 8th of October will be in an Aries Moon which is Mars ruled, and in my location at the time of the eclipses greatest point in the 8th house opposing the Sun in Libra.  On the 23 of October the Eclipse will be a Partial Solar Eclipse with the Sun and Moon combusta in Scorpio again Mars ruled in the night side of his nature and with Venus also conjunct and close to combusta, as well as also being in the 8th house from my location.

Eclipses never portend good new, so with this nature again as the past ones this year and if I recall correctly last year this will bring very war like energy and in Mundane Astrology the 8th house is the house of International finance, corporations and transnational corporations are associated within the 8th house. Foreign investments, death, public mortality, assassinations, death duties of officials, death arrangements and national mourning reside in the 8th house. It is possible that the 8th house can bring renewal, regeneration and new resolve to the populace after a time of grieving. The 8th house is opposite the 2nd, and therefore speaks of the “death of things a nation holds dear.”

I will touch on this more, in some of my past predictions I have spoken on this many times and in the timing of when most would occur.  With this placement inside of the eclipse again it will only intensify my earlier predictions.

 

Many Blessings in the Dark and Light

Astro Weather for Week of 16-21st of August

Mercury Talisman; Agrippa

Mercury Talisman; Agrippa

We finally have some good planet positions for the casting of astrological magic and astrological talismans.  While we do still have those planets that are in term (which is bringing on the heavier more aggressive natures as is clear in what is going on around the globe today, we have a small window to do some magic workings with the celestial, mercury and mars to shift some of those energies around for the better.

Sun is in his own Sign and in Trip this is a good placement for talisman of the sun as long as the moon is not opposing and there are not any afflictions with other planets that are conjunct.

Mercury is in EXALTATION, he is in his sign and in triplicity and this is an excellent time to create or re-consecrate your mercurial talismans to bring those energies and that of the nature of Mercury for success in business into your life.

Mars is in his own sign and in trip another good placement for a talisman.

Within the fixed stars we have Regulas w/Mercury and this brings honourable things, popularity, generosity but those who are the givers will take it for granted, by those who you give it too and fame and gain through high position.

Alphecca is with Mars and this brings an Active Mind and it is a better time for writing then in speaking what you wish to say, so wait a week to say what must be said to ensure you do not come across misunderstood.

Sirius with Mars this is a courageous and generous and a great time to begin work in connection with the metals.

 

This is a powerful time take advantage of the placements and what you have been seeking in your life it is time to move the plans forward and manifest it into your life.

 

Many Blessings in the Light and Dark

In this workshop we will be covering the basics of Astrological magic with a focus on discussing what is astrology, the ancient zodiac signs from Mesopotamia. We will also be looking at the star charts of Babylonian as… they are used even today when focusing on working with their influences in Mediaeval magic and talismans and how according to the Babylonian the signs were in the wheel prior to today’s wheel layout.

We will also be discussing the zodiac signs, colours and numbers associated along with the virtues, spirits and intelligence/s that rule them when working directly with a specific planet and seal.

Finally we will be looking at how we calculate the magic we cast by looking at the Witches Timepiece and planetary hours (lower magic) and the days of the week and the best hours to cast magic.

It is very important to have a basic knowledge and understanding of the celestial system prior to casting any magic, magic is from those realms of the invisible and when we do our work we call on the spirits, intelligences, the Gods and Goddesses which are directly above us in the planets that move throughout the heavens. When we do our work we are invoking the very nature of the Universe at the Mental level and if you do not know what you are doing, I think that say it all.
