So, seems like every time there is some kind of magickal gathering the Universe conspires to test the participants to see how badly they really want it. Our Solstice gathering have proven to be no different.

For my disclosure on this or any of my post or pages… please visit my Disclosure page.

While it’s not worth going into, personal strife between some Temple of the Western Gate members ended up airing some dirty laundry in front of other members, and I could have done without it all going down that way… guess my little group has graduated to being a real occult order… complete with cliché infighting…

To that end however, I now have a plan for the evening’s “Solstice” event. As I may have mentioned, after opening, Wimsaur has offered to lead us in a group performance of the Greater Hexagram Ritual focusing on the positive philosophical Sagittarius. It should serve to bring self focus on our True Wills by directing us all in the “right direction”.  Additionally, the ritual should serve to balance the seven planets within us, which compounds upon the purpose of becoming in harmony (without/within) so that we become fit vessels to receive our True Wills.

Given how calling the elementals last gathering caused for a fun (but unfocused) evening, this sounds like just the sort of ritual our group needs to be practicing…


Next, “The Friend” has offered to give a slide presentation on a topic that is very close to the original TotWG goals. Not to spoil it, but she will detail for us a murder investigation she assisted with… psychically. Helping lost spirits find the Light has always been one of our goals, but this is a higher level of that Work altogether and I personally can’t wait to hear the details.

Finally, we’ll break out our apps and see if all this magick and ghost hunting talk has attracted any chatty spirits who want to communicate with us. We’ve had interesting luck with the Ghost Radar app, so I encouraged all members to download your own if you like, the more the merrier. When we’re done, I’ll wrap things up with the Collect for the End (which in my experience seems to help get some lost spirits “home”) and close up with LBRP.

Nice and neat.


I’ve also finally finished my revisions to the write-ups for the series of talks about magick I’ll be giving at the Maryland Theosophical Society starting in January.

Magick 101 – Introduction to the Fundamentals
“The Method of Science, the Aim of Religion”
It is a fairly commonplace mistake nowadays for all forms of ceremonial magick (and other similar occult practices) to automatically be associated with Satanism. Such was the case with the oft-misunderstood Aleister Crowley, who defined “Magick” as “the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will. Come learn some of the basic concepts of magickal theory and practice, and how you can apply those principles to your own life… to begin performing your own magick today! Topics will cover (and correlate) such concepts as Qabbalah, the Five Elements, the Planets and Zodiac, the Chakras, the Alphabet of Desire, the Holy Guardian Angel (HGA), the Unconscious Mind, the Seven Hermetic Principles, the real difference between Black and White Magick, and much more. The class will culminate with applying all this knowledge to performing what is often considered the most fundamentally important first ritual for a magician to learn, the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP). Group participation in the ritual portion of this class is encouraged, but not required.

Magickal Accoutrements – Crafting Items for Spellwork

ABRAHADABRA: “I Create What I Speak”

What’s the deal with sigils? What is the point of candle magick? Why do some spellcasters have a dagger, wand, cup, and pentacle on their altars? What’s the difference between the magickal operations of Divination, Enchantment, Sorcery, The Double, and Transmogrification? All this and more will be answered… and not just what kinds of magickal operations are likely to have the most success for you… but some of the theories behind why they work! The class will culminate with a group working involving each participant’s choice of performing a guided sigil and/or candle magick operation. Group participation in the ritual portion of this class is encouraged, but not required.
