occult books 

omg, how did i miss this book?! Jason Miller's The Sorcerer's Secrets is a MUST HAVE for beginners... also Peter J. Carroll's Liber Null - these 2 are the best, tradition-agnostic, foundational books i've ever read on magick

occult 

phewโ€ฆ managed to find out the names of my Birth-Angel and my Birth-Demon(?) using Agrippaโ€™s methods - idk if Birth-Demon is a thing, Agrippa is using โ€œevil spiritโ€ in his book in his charts for this process along with "good angel"โ€ฆ i just have to construct some sigils according to his methods and summon them i guess ๐Ÿ’ช

hm, if i were to construct a similar oracle for example with the Phoenician alphabet, i'd group lines/sentences from the Baal Cycle to the 22 characters of that abjad ๐Ÿค”

geomancy 

for example - getting Albus: "In Latin, its name means โ€œWhiteโ€, but is also named โ€œthe Bearded Oneโ€ in some Islamic traditions, as well as โ€œlaughingโ€ or โ€œhappyโ€. "

my favourite method is still using the 4 Platonic Solids from D&D dice, it already has associations with the 4 elements

geomancy 

example: apple (1+8+8+3+5=25 -> 1 fire position), grapefruit (3+2+1+8+5+8+2+6+1+4=40 -> 2 air position), fire (8+1+2+5=16 -> 2 water position), bamboo (2+1+4+2+7+7=23 -> 1 earth position) = Carcer ("In Latin, its name means โ€œPrisonโ€, which is pretty common in many traditions, but also called โ€œconstrictionโ€ or โ€œbound togetherโ€.")

geomancy 

a "new"(?) method to generate geomantic figures - while the querent is thinking about their question, ask them to say 16 random words that spring into their mind, then use a numerology chart like the Chaldean chart to calculate the numeric values of the words. make groups of 4, this way you can make the geomantic figures - if a number is even then put 2 dots, if it's odd then put 1 dot and moving in the order how the words were said, you can generate the Four Mothers for your chart ๐Ÿค”

occult 

it's sometimes disorienting to immerse myself in current writings, opinions, and experiences where everything's too mystical and have this New Age-ey vibe with lizardmen, DNA-activation, UFOs, raising vibrations, and Law of Attraction... it's such an obscure topic that it's understandable how believers in conspiracy theories flock to the occult and influence it to this extent, but to me it feels like muddying the waters too much...

it's really great to have more authors with an academic-perspective backing their writings with archeology in the occult - i really appreciate the writings of authors like Stephen Skinner and Baal Kadmon, they have a more grounded take on all of this than other contemporary, mystical authors... also the works of Diane Vera, Martin McGreggor, and Rose Crowley have a really grounded take on Satanism which is refreshing after delving in the writings of contemporary groups

occult 

also graeco-egyptian love spells were kind of brutal - "spirit/god make it so that my beloved can't eat/sleep/think of anything else but me until they profess their love to me"... like, bruh... don't do that

occult 

so... the original version is spelled Kabalah, which is Jewish mysticism, then the version spelled Cabalah is the Christianized version, and the one spelled Qabalah is what the alchemists derived in the 1400-1500s by putting Kabalah and Hermeticism together... there should be a chart about this somewhere to note the differences... ๐Ÿค”

Damien Echols's voice is so soothing, he could make an ASMR channel parallel to his occult one ๐Ÿ˜„

i've seen an article about a Tetractys-chart, but the same article notes why it isn't as useful as the Shield-chart (how the 4 Daughters balance the chart mathematically)
