Nine Tips For Successful Magic

Nine Tips For Successful Magic Cover
1. Turn off the phone, radio, email, or anything else that will disturb you during the process. However, soothing music may be played as you prepare and perform magic. The key here is that you want no interruptions.

2. Keep the tools you use for magic away from other people, as tools absorb the energy of their user.

3. Consult a calendar to time your magic with the ebb and flow of the lunar cycle.

4. Magic has a very hard time working correctly during a Mercury Retrograde and should be avoided during this time. Mercury goes backwards (retrograde) four times a year and usually lasts about three weeks. Since Mercury is the planet of communications, you want it to be moving direct for positive results.

5. What you send out comes back to you three times over, so if you are using magic to hurt or make someone else feel uncomfortable, you do so at your own risk.

6. Keep your magic to yourself. When you tell others of your plans, you invite their energy to mingle in with yours. This can weaken your energy, thereby weakening the energy of your magic.

7. Think positively about the changes you desire, but don't dwell on them. By detaching yourself you let the universe help as well. Detaching doesn't decrease the power of your want, but it does give the universe permission to step in and take over.

8. Remember that impatience leads to doubt and doubt invites negativity. Neither nature nor the universe can be rushed. Magic works in Divine time, not human time.

9. Remember above all that faith in yourself, faith in magic and positive thoughts are all powerful vibratory forces that bring results" Girl "

Magick Cauldron Swiped From Earthy Create Your Ownbygawoo I Added A New Image
swiped from earthy

Create your own! By GA WOO

I added a new pic of me from Zoofari!

I think I look pretty cute!

We got Ryan's school pictures in today-should be putting one of those up soon too. He's getting SO big!

55 books

Don't usually do memes, but this one that I saw at ELFWRECK's journal is actually relevant to my normal journaling, so here is.


1) The "Noddy in Toyland" Series by Enid Blyton. I remember wanting to live in Toyland. It looked so neat and colorful, just the way it should be in real life. Generally speaking, Enid Blyton was one of my favorite authors as a kid. I loved her "Famous Five" and "Secret Seven" books, especially.

2) "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" by Roald Dahl. I found this particular books so fascinating that I finished reading it on my way home from the library, while walking.

3) "Kofiko" by Tamar Borstein Lazar. A famous Israeli series about a monkey who immigrated to Israel and came to live with a typical Israeli family. In every book, he tries a different adventure. He works as a nurse, becomes a school teacher, plays soccer, goes hiking, works as a policeman, etc. It's hilarious.

4) "Kuki Havakuki" by Tova Borstein. Another Israeli series. This time about an adventurous, personified, speaking, parrot.

5) "Six World Fairytales". A translated collection of six fairy tales with beautiful sparkly pictures: Cynderlla, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, The Sleeping Beauty, Thumbellina, Goldilocks and the Three Bears.


1) "The Old Testament" by God. okay, this was not exactly for lit class, but was definitely the main book we've worked with in school for 12 years.

2) "Lord of the Flies" by William Golding.

3) "P re Goriot" by Honor de Balzac.

4) "Antigone" by Sophocles. Technically a play, but we've spent 1.5 years talking about it in lit class, so yeah, definitely something I had to read for school. I know the god damned thing by heart, even.

5) "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoevsky.


1) The "Harry Potter" books by J.K. Rawling.

2) The "Robots/Empire/Foundation Series" by Isaac Asimov.

3) "Bridget Jones's Diary" by Helen Fielding. One of those books that I can read over and over and they still manage to make me laugh.

4) "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Robert Heinlein.

5) "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" series by Douglas Adams.


Not including Hebrew books here because 99% of you probably would not recognize them. This shortlist would have looked a bit different with them. Also, I have at least 10 more non-Hebrew books that should get into the Big Impact list. Eek.)

1) "Focault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco."

2) My Secret Life by Anonymous. Responsible for much of my sexual educations, as well as a major influence on some of my romantic and sexual decisions as an adult.

3) "The story of San Michele by Axel Munthe".

4) "The Twelve Wild Swans by Starhawk and Hilary Valentine".

5) "The Oxford English Dictionary". Specifically the editions for Hebrew speakers studying English as a second language.


1) "Ulysses" by James Joyce.

2) "His Dark Materials by" Philip Pullman

3) "Das Parfum" by Patrick S skind.

4) "Catch-22" by Jospeh Heller. Yes, I know. I *should have* read it. I've been meaning to for years. Yet, somehow, the thought of reading something that's war-related is a major turnoff. I'm Israeli, after all. I have enough of this in my everyday life. When I read, I want to *escape* a bit, you know.

5) "Five Quarters of the Orange" by Joanne Harris. This is a sequel to "Chocolat" and "Blackberry Wine" that I much enjoyed. It should be interesting.

Transforming Reality to Your Liking

Do you ever hit blocks in the road and you're not quite sure how you got there and your not quite sure what to do about it? I've been at one of those places for the past week or so. I've been working on a project, which was sailing along very smoothly, and then bump, I ran []

Biblia Cabalistica

Biblia Cabalistica Cover

Book: Biblia Cabalistica by Walter Begley

THERE is little need for an extended preface to this book, for the title-page shows very plainly its purport and the nature of the contents. I would simply say here, that the following pages
are chiefly intended for lovers and collectors of literary curiosities, a class of readers who are, I believe, on the increase nowadays.

People with such tastes do not so much care for the books "which" they are told, "no gentleman s library should be without" as for books that are curious, paradoxical, out of the common run, and
not before met with in the course of their reading. This book should therefore well meet their requirements. And 1 can only hope that it will also succeed in attracting the attention and satisfying
the curiosity of a few, at least, of that somewhat eccentric band of bibliophiles whose ranks I joined some years ago, and have never regretted my enlistment.

February Magick

February Magick Cover
To Wisdom I call out, Wisdom I invoke

Wisdom I embrace, Wisdom that once spoke

in every wheeling star,

in every sturdy oak:

Show your face again, Sophia!

Remove your shadow cloak!

February gets its name from the word "meaning "to purify." This is likely due to the fact that February was the traditional month of cleansing in Rome, when people repented of holiday excesses. The official day for focusing on purification is February 15. (I suspect the ancient cure for hangovers, onion juice, saw a lot of use this day). This cleansing theme also explains the prevalence of water-themed celebrations during this month, along with festivals for the dead.

By now the hectic pace of the holidays has begun to settle down, and life returns to some semblance of normalcy. Nonetheless, the need for the Goddess does not go away during day-to-day activities. If anything, making life an act of worship means including her in even the simplest of things. In terms of energy, any magic focused on growth, well-being, purification, cleansing, or initiation is suited to this month's aspects

The Greater Key Of Solomon Part 3

The Greater Key Of Solomon Part 3 Cover

Book: The Greater Key Of Solomon Part 3 by Solomonic Grimoires

he Greater Key of Solomon, Books 1,2 & 3 - The Key of Solomon, divided in two books, contains the conjurations and invocations to summon spirits of the dead (preferably in battle) and spirits from Hell (not specified whether demons or punished souls, but it is understandable from the purpose of the texts that those spirits are demons), and to protect the conjurer (called exorcist in the book) from them and against an attempt of possession. There are curses to oblige reluctant spirits to obey. The book gives details on how to prepare the ink to draw the magic symbols necessary for the experiments the magician is going to perform, using animal blood mixed with other substances. All substances needed for the magic drawings and amulets are detailed, as well as the means to purify and prepare them. Many of the symbols incorporate the Passing Through the River occult alphabet. The conjurer must also purify himself before performing an intended experiment, and these rituals are also detailed, as well as the clothing he must use, the colours, etc.

The Greater Key Of Solomon is the most important works attributed to Solomon was The Key of Solomon. A manuscript of the work in Greek found in the British Museum may date from as early as the thirteen century, and other copies in various languages can be found around Europe. In 1559 the Inquisition pronounced the Key a dangerous book and prohibited its being published or read. Many of the later grimoires, however, show its influence. In 1889 Golden Dawn leader S. L. MacGregor Mathers published an abridged edition of the work collating some seven different versions of it from the British Museum collection. His translation then became a major source for Golden Dawn rituals. It was reprinted in 1909, and a slightly revised, pirated American edition was published by L. W. deLaurence. The book, even in its abridged version, offers detailed Instructions for preparing and executing various Magic Rituals involving the summoning and control of spirit entities.

According to the Key of Solomon animals must be sacrificed as offerings to the summoned spirits as a sine qua non (essential) condition, which is common in medieval books on "black magic". The book contains instructions to practice necromancy, experiments of invisibility, to cause harm to others, etc., and the zodiacal time appropriate for each experiment. All the necessary magical instruments needed to perform the experiments are described in great detail, including how and also the form to make it. As a curious need, the conjurer must manifest that he is free of any evil action before attempting any of these experiments (many of them to cause evil), and invoke the protection of God. There is also lore that certain symbols of Solomon have the ability to trap a demon (preferably a possessed man) if it walks under or on top of it. (Very powerful works of magick contained here. step carefully my friend!!).

Historical Summary Of The European Witch Hunts

Historical Summary Of The European Witch Hunts Cover
The European Witch Craze started roughly during conclusion of the 15th century and peaked during the first half of the seventeenth century. The belief that women were sinful and had the power of the devil within them developed out of the Middle Ages. The Reformation further promoted the idea of a satanic kingdom of evil on earth with which to justify persecutions. Theologians sought to prove that accused witches represented the devil.

The first and most significant written cumulative concept of witchcraft available to a large audience was the Malleus Maleficarum written by Sprenger and Kraemer. It was first published in 1486 and reprinted fourteen times before 1520. The document made an important contribution to the widespread witch hunt. Most people accused of witchcraft were rural, poor, and single women. The hunts are often seen as a massive effort to keep women in their place. Women were seen as evil, and unclean people whose weakness could summon the devil for sexual intercourse.

The Malleus Maleficarum document ignited a widespread hunt for the so-called witches described in it. During the hunt, witches were accused of "impractical" and "traceless" crimes such as intercourse with the devil, unregistered babies from hidden pregnancies who were supposedly eaten or sacrificed, and even natural disasters. However there is no record of any solid evidence for any of these accused crimes.

Often these hunts were instigated by hysterical children, or nuns who accused relatives, and neighbors of these outrageous crimes. Witnesses were often bribed or threatened in order to prosecute the accused. The accused would then be tortured until they confessed. The methods of torture were very cruel and painful, and almost all who were put through the various devices would confess. In some cases the accused would die of torture, and very few survived the ordeal without confessing. However, the accused was set free if they survived the torture without a confession. After the forced confession, the trial took place. These trials were run by genuine believers of witchcraft. The aim of the trial was to exterminate the witches as conspirators with the devil. When the accused was declared guilty, they were usually executed.

Although, there are many estimates as to how many actual people were killed during these hunts, most estimates show the number well below the one-million mark. The actual number of documented executions, is generally considered to be under one hundred thousand. Of all that were executed, only a minority were men, and of those men, many are those who tried to protect accused women from the hunters.
