Methinks that I have found a group of like minded folk practicing in the Arts. I would be honored to join in this Coven!

We practice the White Arts - and have been known to dance under the full moon in the Circle at the top of the hill.

BTW - the dragonflys are out and about ... and the crows have been circling in greater numbers than usual.

We have been seeing some very odd creatures this Autumn, things we don't normally see, like hares, birds of prey, huge fish and exotic insects. I wonder what they are trying to tell us.....

Let the Mystic Circumambulation take
place in the Path of Darkness, with the
Light of Occult Science to guide the Way!

< circumambulates the temple with
steampumpkin and thurible >

Inheritor of a Dying World, We call Thee
to the Living Beauty.

Wanderer in the Wild Darkness, We call
Thee to the Gentle Light.

Child of Earth, long hast Thou dwelt in
Darkness - quit the Night and seek the
Day!

Welcome, Frater Birdnest, to the Order
of the Brazen Dawn

Fra Caigan, What are the criteria for acquiring 2°=9°?

I could do with deeper knowledge to further my research in combining occult and modern galvanic science through the mystic use of crystals.

Fra Nick

PS the Philosophical Rendezvous at Lincoln went well - we even persuaded a few people away from the Ball! A couple of Theology graduates, an atheist and some undecideds made for a stimulating evening.

I recollect some discussion along those lines awhile
back, and we are still awaiting further instruction
from the Inner Order in that regard.

We have been seeing some very odd creatures this Autumn, things we don't normally see, like hares, birds of prey, huge fish and exotic insects. I wonder what they are trying to tell us.....

The Crows, Ravens, Hummingbirds and Dragonflies are messengers of the Spirit World.  Crows pretty much are around year 'round, and the Dragonflies replace the Hummers in September.  We've had some interesting experiences with both the Hummers and the Dragons.  What is really important to note is when they seek you out and hover right in your face - it happens quite often.

We currently have three distinct groups of Dragons (huge blue, medium gold and red), and the last of what was 6 breeding pairs of Hummers just left for the south.

The same (more or less) holds true for the prime raptors such as Eagle, Hawk and Owl.

We have noticed Great Horned Owl in the cottonwoods just below the house. Several weeks ago while driving to work, a Golden Eagle setting on a fence post spread his wings to full out just as I drove by and closed them after I passed - obviously wanted to get my attention.

The cats have also been on a mission of attention as well instead of the usual antipathy.

Also, the deer have been missing, and we seemed to have gained a bear.

somethings afoot!

I have no idea where I first read it, but from somewhere I got the idea that when a digital display shows 11:11 unexpectedly, it is a calling-card of the Midway Creatures.

Hello all.  I've been doing little more than lurking for a while now, but thought I might join.  I was born on a Friday the 13th, under a full moon, and have always been drawn to the occult.  I know how to scry and dowse.  I am currently working on a scrying apparatus consisting of a pendulum suspended over a plate of sand.  When swung the tip of the pendulum draws in the sand.  With a little engineering I've been able to cause it to draw a pentagram about 40% of the time.  All that is left of the build is the suspension for the pendulum.  I was involved in a bigfoot sighting, I was the bigfoot sighted. (it was a drunken escapade involving a stolen bearskin rug)  And I am working on a steampunk voodoo necromancer costume for Halloween, so any ideas for paraphernalia for such a costume would be welcomed.

Unfortunately these dates are only accurate if you use the currently popular but symbolically suspect Gregorian Calendar, and the timings are either UT (universal time) or a local time zone based on the same. In practice, the Sideral Time of the location should be noted.

These were exactly what I was looking for - the first is particularly fascinating as I am also a second-generation dowser.

Now I just have to build an Odic-driven Crystallic Force weapon. Hmm. Shape of weapon what will it be, young Jedi?

Many thanks

The schematics for some of Allan Bennett's devices
are currently stored in the Aleister Crowley Collection
at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center
in Austin, Texas.

Frater Bennett, as you may recall, was the inventor
of a "blasting rod" that he assembled from some odds
and ends.

Masculine Mirrors

These mirrors, much stronger and more efficacious than those
that we have spoken of before, are of an oval form of 14" by
10". Their magnetic surface is enormous. They are used, more
often, for group workings than for operations of private
revelations, because they can display, at the same time,
three different pictures to three different observers. They
are especially well known in Louisiana and in Syria. The
masculine magic mirror is made from glass mixed with
precisely 1 part of fine gold to 100 parts of glass.

Extract from the Testament of our Brother Charsah

My long theoretical studies concerning living pictures still
remained unfruitful. The rare pictures that I had succeeded
in animating rapidly died and the phantoms that I
resuscitated didn't possess the faculties that I wished for.
I had varied my models, I had tried the most powerful
fluid condensers, but in vain: I could not obtain that which
I wished for. But one day, graced by a lucky chance, I found
proof that the son of one of our peasants, who made his
ardent prayer in Spanish before an image of the Madonna
every day, had involuntarily created a succubus. I had,
then, the solution that I sought.

To avoid this error and to obtain perfect results, we have
studied and perfected three types of irreproachable fluid
condensers, two liquid and one solid, which all may use
satisfactorily.

wow khem, thats a little more than i asked for but very cool.


 i am more interested in ink pools than anything, i recently made myself a polished copper bowl, about 7 by 5. i pounded it with an iron railroad spike muffled with goatskin and polished it with rotted stone and green sand.

 i have made a few pints of walnut ink to fill the bowl and make use of it for viewings. my question would be can i reuse my ink of should it be discarded each use, can the bowl be placed directly on a table top or should it be insulated by velvet or glass, should i suspent the bowl?

 thanks for your interest khem and i look forward to your next post. i am not new to viewing but i am new to viewing in my home, in the past i have done all of my viewings on moonless nights at lakes or ponds with still water. this being concidered i feel that viewing in an ink pool will be more suited to my personal energies than using a mirror.
