God and good and evil

During the Italian earthquake a church bell dislodged itself and fell into a house and killed two children and while Pope Francis offered his prayers to the 275 victims of the earthquake he did not mention God being involved. It struck me as if the Church was ignoring an event which was of symbolic importance.  I posted onto Facebook: "The Pope says he is praying for all the earthquake victims... that is nice. How does he explain what his God was up to when a bell from one his churches dislodged during the quake and killed [an entire family]*? God clearly didn't like them right? Apparently no one else is saying this. However it is an obvious question... if something bad

BOOM! Wikileaks Confirms Hillary started World War Two by invading Poland

Although Hillary Clinton has repeatedly denied that she was involved in World War Two, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange claims he has proof to the contrary. In an interview with Democracy Now, Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is now stating that 1,700 emails contained in the Clinton cache directly connect Hillary to Nazi Germany and making the moves which ultimately drove the US into a long war. Assange has denied that the source his leaks were Russian oligarchs keen to put Donald Trump into the White House so that they can collect on all the money he owes them. “Look, people say that just because some of the DMC emails are written in Russian it suggests that they have been made up by president Putin’s propaganda

Grimm season finale victory for backward sexism

Grimm fell into the predictable trap of US television shows which dictate middle class protestant morality which requires: You must always marry and stay with the mother of your children.  (If you have a second love interest you must always return to your first love interest if children are involved. If a woman becomes empowered there is something wrong with her and she must be forced to conform.# A woman is property and if a male  sleeps with someone else the new woman will become their responsibility Throughout the first season, the Grimm's partner Juliette is the perfect doormat to her partner.  He lies to her about his true nature and results in her near death.  In this season Julette gets powers. She is

ANCIENT KYBALION DISCOVERED IN BRITISH MUSEUM

An Egyptian Paprii has turned up in the British Museum which proves the historical veracity of the  Hermetic Book the Kybalion. According to the Guardian In 1962 an antiques dealer sold a large fragment of papyrus to the British Museum.  Written in Demotic it was in a state of extraordinary preservation.  The age of the papyrus was dated to the late Middle Kingdom or the every early New Kingdom 1600 BCE. It has only recently been translated and what fascinated the British Museum was ancient Hebrew text קַבָּלָn (Kybalion) which is the first historical reference to the ancient Hermetic text. The rest of the text appears to be an Ancient platonic text explaining how each object in the universe has sexual characteristics or

PAGANISM IS NOT ABOUT NATURE

A discussion on another person’s blog got me thinking about how much modern paganism is associated with Nature and animals. A list of things modern pagans are supposed to do include things like getting out into nature and communing with the various spirits you find there. Pagans are half expected to be vegetarians and respect all life However I feel that while such goals might be laudable, by pigeon holing paganism into one set of standards we are creating a paganism that never was and cutting off the ancient gods from the Urban life where they really dominated. Walking around in Rome you can’t help noticing that one of the key motivators of European pagan was almost entirely urban. Gods were placated

Pythagoreans and the Golden Dawn

 The triangle refers to the supernal triad formed by the Kether, Chokmah Binah spheres but that does not explain the Red Cross.  So lets look at something else. The tetractys was a triangle symbol which was considered holy by the Pythagoreans.  It showed the whole of created matter as a series of ten dots. The first dot represented the One Thing, the Second the Duality, the Third the Mediating World Soul and the fourth the four elements of the material word.    Now the central dot was the most important as it represented the mediating influence of the World Soul from the upper to the lower words.  At the time of the Chaldean Oracles this role belonged to Hekate, but was similar to

Earthing that isnt

When you are trained, some things go into your head and you accept them without thinking.  You live them because they provide you with a temporary answer.  Sometimes though the universe moves to challenge your views. The issue of “earthing your magic” has come to the forefront lately and I have discovered that I have changed my view completely.   When I was trained, I was told that it was vitally important to “earth” both yourself and your magic. I was taught to be suspicious of teachers who relied on training for their income and look only to those who participated properly in the material universe. It was claimed that it was impossible to be a full time magician or occultist, because

THE LESSER RITUAL OF THE HEXAGRAM

I have published one of my online lectures on YouTube.  It explains how, that as the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram is not about elements, so the Lesser Ritual of the Hexagram is probably not about planets and together these two rituals have an important function, in magical work.  

NOME ALONE – the animals of Hekate and the MOON

Research has revealed an interesting link to the lunar animals of Hekate in the Greek Magical Papyrii of the London Paprus 121 (PGN II) and the Mansions of the Moon (Weinstock, 1949), however it has so far failed to nail down a source for the list.  Indeed if it was meant to be a list of animals attributed to Hekate it had shortfalls. However there is a pattern, which suggests that the list might have originated in Egypt and was adapted until its original meaning was lost. The London Paprus provides a list of 20 animals which it says are attributed to Hekate.  Weinstock says that this indicates that there are two lists of lunar animals and finds another eight  from
