Holistic Security Magic Frater UD is a practicing occultist who has to date written more than thirty- five books on various subjects related to magic.…

The couple spent a few moments focusing upon a portrait of Dee and then invited him to make himself known to them. The response…

Indeed the practice can be so personal to the operator that it can take many years of hard work and exploration simply to ascertain the most effective and efficient methodology to follow. Spellcasting is such an essential aspect of most systems of practical magic that it deserves a book dedicated to the subject – which is exactly what American Witch of over twenty years and current priest of the Cailleach Michael Furie has written.…

The Practical Art of Divine Magic by Patrick Dunn

The Practical Art of Divine Magic by Patrick Dunn

Modern magickal practice has steered away from the traditional methodologies of Greek, Egyptian and Roman theurgy mostly in favour of Hebrew and Kabbalistic attributions. Even many popular gnostic disciplines are increasingly failing to recognize ancient Mediterranean Gods and Goddesses and the primary function that they had in organizing ancient society. In his book ‘The Practical Art of Divine Magic’, Patrick Dunn PhD has sought to revive interest in these traditions. However, as he is keen to point out in the introduction to his book, this does not entail digging up…

La Santa Muerte by Tomás Prower

La Santa Muerte by Tomás Prower

You won’t find the history of La Santa Muerte in any textbook. Being a predominantly clandestine mystery school, the devotees of La Santa Muerte have preferred to keep this particular avatar of Death a secret known only to them and other initiates. With that that enticingly fascinating comment regarding the worship of one of the great mysteries of human existence, Tomas Prower reveals the essential context that surrounds his book ‘La Santa Meurte: Unearthing the Magic & Mysticism of Death’.

Who Killed Mister Moonlight? by David J Haskins

Who Killed Mister Moonlight? by David J Haskins

On January 3, 1979, a relatively unknown post-punk rock group performed their latest composition at the Romany pub in Kingsthorpe, UK for the first time. The band was called Bauhaus 1919 and was named after the Staatliches Bauhaus—a school of architecture based in Weimar, Germany. The composition that got its initial airing that night was the song ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ and over the following years, ‘Bela’ launched the career of the now shortened ‘Bauhaus’ into the realms of international stardom. The song itself, probably the only rock and roll anthem…
