We will get married in Feb when we go on holiday to New Zealand
David Williamson died on Corpus Christi after a long illness that destroyed him.David was a doctor where he spend his life working with the dead and performing the function of a coroner's doctor. This lead him to a relationship with a god form called Anubis. The Opener was an archetype which had a huge influence in his life. He was introduced to magic through Masonry and then joined the Servants of the Light school of magic where he became a supervisor and rose through the ranks quickly. It was there that he meet Krys and the patterns of his life were changed completely. I was deeply honoured when he and Krys joined the Horus Hathor temple
I wrote this story today which is fairly interesting. The idea is that a symbol of enlightenment can help you have breakthroughs. It is almost a scientific confirmation of Plato
Harry and Nicola have done a video showing the images of the forthcoming Golden Dawn Temple Deck. It is looking really good! The bonus is that the YouTube flick comes with a soundtrack from Harry and Nico's album.
hy the Past Hierophant needs to get the bootThe top table of chiefs are composed of the Imperator, the Cancellarius and Praemonstrator. The Hierophant is also supposed to sit between them and behind him sits the Past-Heirophant.Throughout the history of the Golden Dawn little work has been done about the magical function of these officers. Instead the titles are seen as mostly administrative. The person who fancies themselves in charge of the group takes the role of Imperator because it means “the person who rules” and it gets to stick them on a throne above all the others dressed in bright red and holding a jolly big sword. However this ego stroke shows the ignorance of
For many years I have been working in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn where few of the diagrams of the Golden Dawn where used in the initiation rituals. This is because the HOGD and many modern Golden Dawn orders were based on the rituals printed by Israel Regardie just before the Second World War in his Golden Dawn book. The Bristol temple was going through a phase of removing parts of the ritual it did not understand or felt were cumbersome and the versions of the rituals that Regardie experienced were these cut down rite. The candidate still saw the diagrams, they were given to him or her during their course work and that was felt to be
After a bit of work I managed to get this blog back from the dead. My old website was cut off and when it was restored the blog would not work. I have attached it to this address now and it seems to be fine, although you might want to update your links etc.
My website has moved to www.nickfarrell.eu. Can you update all your links?
After laying low on the subject for a few months, I just thought I would tell everyone about the Golden Dawn Order that has been formed after I left the HOGD.The Website for the Order can be found here www.auroraaurea.com. The Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea will be a world-wide Golden Dawn group whose main focus is taking a magical approach to the system. There are a few minor changes, but the frame work and initiations are traditional (Whare Ra) GD. The Order structure is slightly different and there is a ritual public face, called an Anticum. There is also a separate correspondence course for those who are not close to a full temple (although we are
For centuries it has been believed that the rivals to the Romans, the Carthaginians used to sacrifice their children to their gods.Carthaginian general Hannibal came close to destroying the Roman empire an act which justify to the Republic using genocide to eliminate their major trading rival.However while the record states that the Carthaginian's were a fairly peaceful lot who were more interested in flogging stuff to anyone would buy it, they had a nasty habit of sacrificing their children. The evidence comes in the forms of large numbers of urns which contain the ashes of kiddies. Christians always had a bit of a problem with the Carthaginians as they were a colony of the Phoenicians who were connected
