Classic sigil magick (based on the work of Austin Osman Spare) pares the practice down to the intent
of the mage without the need to call upon otherworldly powers.
The work of Spare & Co. is, technically, Modern sigil magic
(one could even call it Post-Modern).

Classic sigil magic, as I have been at some pains to point
out previously on this Forum, goes back well beyond the
Renaissance & Mediaeval Periods into the truly Classical
Era.

Got a question, khem. You mentioned 'post-modern sigils' before. What do you think of the mOre post modern types of magickal workings (online covens/ group spells, flashlights as a symbl of fire in workings, yadda yadda)?

Hi, Kieran ~


I have been practicing Daemonic Astrology for
over 40 years now. My approach is Classical,
and founded in the Physics and Natural Magic
of the Stoics. I don't follow the later Religionist
schemes of the Middle Ages <promulgated and
imposed by interaction/friction with Church &
Inquisition>.

To toss in a useful analogy, I think that examining
the astronomical and astrological work of Galileo
through the filters of the Church is pointless, if
what you are truly interested in is astronomy and
astrology.

Likewise pointless, if your interests lay with Stoic
Astrological and Daemonic Physics.

The Religious models firmed up into the Psychological/
Psychodrama models during the course of the 1800s,
when fringe Masonry groups such as the Hermetic
Order of the Golden Dawn re-interpreted / mangled
the work of earlier/Classical Daemonic Astrologers.

In fact, we can argue that the Hermetic Order of the
Golden Dawn was the first ChA0$ MagiK group out
there, with its blatant disregard for the Classical
systems and its colonial syncretic appropriation and
shoe-horning of other cultural and ethnic magics into
its own kludged structure.

I have a great deal more to say on the subject in
some of my earlier posts here - see, for example :

Something of possible interest for the Ch@0$oPhists
in our little Order - a new book on Rosaleen Norton,
whose work is <sadly> much less known than that of
Austin Osman Spare. Here's a brief review and some
further links :

" Although they never met, the Australian witch
Rosaleen Norton (1917-1979) and British visionary
artist Austin Osman Spare (1886-1956) shared many
points in common.

As occult practitioners operating within the Western
esoteric tradition, both artists were well versed in the
literature of Western magic, Theosophy, Kabbalah,
Eastern mysticism, and modern psychoanalysis.

Fascinated by mediæval magical grimoires, they
also explored the seals associated with elemental
spirit-beings and developed unique forms of sigil
magic.

Perhaps even more significantly, Norton and Spare
utilised their own personal techniques of self-hypnosis
and trance in order to produce their distinctive
visionary artworks.

As this book demonstrates, there is a clear parallel
between the trance states associated with the Zos /
Kia cosmology of Spare and the trance magic of Norton.

Profiling both artists in detail, and with in excess
of 120 colour and black and white images, Dark Spirits
explores the unique contributions of both Spare and
Norton as visionary outsiders and is necessary reading
for anyone interested in the nether regions of the
magical psyche. "

With apologies for the thread-necromancy (and, in all honesty, can we name a thread where necromancy would be more appropriate?), I came across a curiosity today that I felt compelled to share.

The 1899 Ritual: What Would Pagan Ritual Have Looked Like at the end of the 19th Century?
Quote
While it’s never explicitly stated, one of the arguments [Ronald Hutton] makes in the book [Triumph of the Moon] is that by 1899 everything that one would have needed to produce a witch ritual was in place. A few years ago a friend and I decided to test that theory and what we ended up with was The 1899 Ritual.

It's a (slightly generic) pagan ritual designed around the materials available to a practitioner in the year 1899, drawing on Freemasonry and Aradia, but it does seem like something relevant to modern steampunk pagans or any students of the occult.

This thread is most definitely relevant to my interests.

While I'm pretty familiar with the faerie lore of Europe and Asia, I'm trying to research stories of the Good People in America, specifically related to New England. (I'd also like to follow in the footsteps of Misses Griffiths and Wright and get photographic evidence, but that's a whole other issue.  Wink )

I note with some amazement that there have been no postings on the B.G.O.S.-E.O.B.D. Sub-Forum for over a year. Such an oversight cannot be allowed to continue. So here, from the archives of that little-known and reclusive Magus, Elias Ashmole Crackbone (b. 1944), is something for those of us on the Path to Knowledge and Wisdom to ponder.

"Truly it has been said, that he who seeks, shall find; and quite often, he shall wish he hadn't.

Consider, if you will: there are many ancient tomes that assert that 'In these pages lies concealed the Key to the Mysteries.' And in many cases, indeed the Key may be found therein.

But, having found the Key, you must open the Door yourself.

And, of course, you must first find the Door. And having found it, opened it with the Key, and passed through, the Door will then close behind you. And you may observe that there is no keyhole on the inside; the Door only opens one way. And shout and scream and hammer on the Door as ye might, no-one else will come and open it for you.

Having once passed through the Door, there is no return; the only way is forward. You must follow the Path before you, wherever it may lead, facing with courage every Danger, accepting with grace every Gift freely given.

Are you prepared for this? And further, can you be certain that the Door you have just passed through is the right Door?

Indeed do many enigmas and conundrums present themselves for our erudition and entertainment."

     E.A.Crackbone, "The Lesser Precepts: Extended Version. Collected Works, Vol.XXIII" Crackbone Institute of Evolutionary Thaumodynamics; Ruyton of the Eleven Towns, Shropshire, England; 2nd Edition, 2005. Pages 666-667

(This particular Precept is missing from the 2011 trade paperback edition, for some inscrutable reason.)

Athanor (TOAOTAG).

Edit: The fact that this posting is No.888 on the B.G.O.S.-E.O.B.D. thread is not without its own Esoteric significance, as all students of Thaumodynamics must be aware.

Chao$ magic eh? I do remember hearing Steve Lake defended the quarters as teletubbies once.
I was not there so I have little to say of the lasting effects of defending your circle with a bunch of actors in freakish Muppet suits.

I like to think it ended badly, but then Steve was so powerful he could have probably farted out a Wight or malevolence for breakfast. So it wasn't really a fair test.

I found him vexing. In a ballsy, self confidant, loud and likeable way but still vexing.

I don't know it doesn't seem that bad to me, Khem Caigan's comments are worth it for the extensive bibliographies alone. A wise old aspect of the male and one I wager, not to be trifled with or taken lightly.
