The Age of Black Magic: Step Ten

Vicious Liver Spell

Introduction

In my last post on Reversal Magic, I wrote that it was good strategy to send a magical attack back in many different ways. Use a plethora of surprising curses so that your antagonist won’t be able to defend against everything.

In magical combat, my own experience has shown that it is helpful to do things in rapid, forceful sequence. Reversal, cleansing and protection are essential— but sometimes it’s good to supplement it with a nasty attack. The best defense is a good offense.

An enemy will be chastened if while they’re fighting off their own toxic garbage rebounding upon them, an entirely different attack is sneaking up behind them and giving them a whallop. A two-front war. They usually leave you alone after that.

The following is certainly adaptable to a conventional enemy, but I advise that you use it on someone who has targeted you magically in an unfair way. It is designed to be cruel, not so much as to punish as to be a strong deterrent — paired with other spellwork.

The Spell

pins01

Obtain a pork or beef liver from your local supermarket or butcher.

Cut open the liver with a very sharp knife, and insert a circular petition paper with “thesoulofmyenemy” or “thetrumpadministration” or whatever you choose in unbroken script around the rim in mirror script, if possible. In a similar manner make a grid eight times of “deathdestructioninsanitysickness”, “thegravedevoursyou” or whatever you choose across in unbroken script, and likewise an intersecting eight times “mywillbedone” in unbroken script down. Or mix it up a little. Write the Doorway To Hell sigil on the reverse. (I used different color inks here for additional clarity, but black is fine.)

Sprinkle sulfur powder and valerian powder on the petition paper and wrap it in snake sheds before inserting it into the liver and closing it up. (Or use goofer dust if you’re in a hurry.)

Take 36 long pins and anoint the tips with your favorite cursing oil or substance.

Spit on the liver as a baptism and declare it to be the soul of your antagonist. Then, put on some disposable gloves and very thoroughly slather the liver in a mix of blackstrap molasses and your urine. Carefully push your pins through the liver with the following incantation as you go:

In the name of [spirit beings you invoke] I [list your qualifications and initiations] and all those who serve me and help me:

  1. Smite my enemy’s left foot
  2. Smite my enemy’s right foot
  3. Smite my enemy’s left shin
  4. Smite my enemy’s right shin
  5. Smite my enemy’s left thigh
  6. Smite my enemy’s right thigh
  7. Smite my enemy’s genitals
  8. Smite my enemy’s hips
  9. Smite my enemy’s bladder
  10. Smite my enemy’s intestines
  11. Smite my enemy’s pancreas
  12. Smite my enemy’s stomach
  13. Smite my enemy’s liver
  14. Smite my enemy’s heart
  15. Smite my enemy’s left lung
  16. Smite my enemy’s right lung
  17. Smite my enemy’s left hand
  18. Smite my enemy’s right hand
  19. Smite my enemy’s left arm
  20. Smite my enemy’s right arm
  21. Smite my enemy’s neck
  22. Smite my enemy’s tongue
  23. Smite my enemy’s lips
  24. Smite my enemy’s speech
  25. Smite my enemy’s left ear
  26. Smite my enemy’s right ear
  27. Smite my enemy’s left eye
  28. Smite my enemy’s right eye
  29. Smite my enemy’s teeth
  30. Smite my enemy’s face
  31. Smite my enemy’s skull
  32. Smite my enemy’s brain
  33. Smite my enemy’s warm blood
  34. Smite my enemy’s strength
  35. Smite my enemy’s youth
  36. Smite my enemy’s hope

My enemy cannot escape me. My enemy cannot escape. My enemy cannot.

Dig a hole in an accessible cemetery (even a pet cemetery, or where you’ve buried pets in the past) and spit in it. Put the liver in the hole and seal it up. Walk away and don’t look back.

Eat Me: Magical Recipes in Medieval Astrological Magic

Though better known for the creation of talismans, medieval and Renaissance astrological magic texts contain further recipes and instructions. Many are intended to be consumed, buried, or burned, with numerous purposes and means of creation. Yet they all point towards a forgotten view of the universe and magic. From counting olive pips to cure illnesses to the creation of wax talismans or incense pills for evocation and influence, such mysteries depend on the philosophies of Al Kindi and his contemporaries. Explore how the outlook of the ancients can enhance our spiritual practices.

DIY Talismans

Astrological talismans from the Scholastic Image Magic tradition often seem as challenging to make as they are powerful. After electing the window of time in which a talisman can be created, one must confect incenses, select appropriate sigils, and obtain tools and materials for the talismans. We will discuss how to create a talismanic laboratory, the process of practical considerations including choosing the best combinations, knowing which substitutions do and don’t work, and time and money saving strategies. Take the theory of talismans into real life creations and applications.

About Time: Basic Chart Calculation

Invaluable to numerous systems of magic, the astrological horoscope is a Swiss army knife for divination, classical medicine, and much else. One of the most advanced achievements of the ancient world, the horoscope can often be perplexing for beginners. This class will focus on the basics of erecting a horoscope chart. We will attempt to demystify the process and render the math easy, while also explaining the essentials of its parts, some of history of its development, and the rationale of the chart from the traditional (pre-1750 AD) perspective.

Fearless Magical Protection

It’s a jungle out there. In most magical systems one of the first things you are taught is basic protection against spiritual attacks, and for good reason. A magical life is a perilous one at times. As you become more proficient, the need for protection grows and takes new forms. This class will survey practical methods of protection from a variety of spiritual systems and methodologies. Some of these techniques are unpublished anywhere and likely to be unfamiliar, but have proven very effective. Magical protection will help secure your success.

 

Hoodoo Spell For Study, Insight And Understanding 

This was originally posted to Facebook on December 15th 2011.

Take a small grit sized lodestone and add it to a white candle dressed with Spirit Guide Oil, and sprinkle the stone with iron filings. Ask the stone to draw to you a powerful benevolent teaching spirit.

Dress a yellow candle with Master Oil or a red candle with Master Key Oil, and add Master of the Woods and/or any other herb signifying what you wish to learn.

Place the former candle on your necromantic altar and the latter near your reading desk or computer, and light them.

When you next sleep, you will have a visitation. Keep a pen and notebook near your bed, so you can quickly transcribe all that you have learned upon awakening before it fades from memory.

Black Magic And Dark Paganism @ ConVocation 2009

A lecture and reading covering the ethos and practices of black magic, a survey of curse methods, and dark paganism– a term which he coined in the early 1990s. (It is a fusion of elements from the PantheaCon lecture of the same name from 2008, the Secret Sequel lecture from 2009, and some unique material.)

Like several lectures during this period, the audio is imperfect. Please accept my apologies.

On Scholastic Image Magic

cropped-736d698e-bef2-483e-b44c-c7266c7c0f08.jpg

Scholastic Image Magic or SIM was one of two main branches of magical practice in the Medieval Era and the Renaissance. It was heavily influenced by the science of the Arabic world, and incorporated astrology, optics, mathematics, and the philosophy of antiquity. The European version was an outgrowth of Medieval Scholasticism; a movement which attempted to reconcile Christianity with the works of Plato, Aristotle and the mystical Neoplatonists.

Scholastic Image Magic focuses primarily upon the creation of talismans; objects created or modified to become repositories of celestial light which alter the attributes and destinies and basic nature of anything in their proximity, including human beings.

It also includes celestial petitions, which are akin to highly ritualized prayers which facilitate the granting of expressed wishes. This is where Scholastic Image Magic and theurgy, the other main branch, cross over.

(The other branch is also sometimes called necromancy, depending on emphasis. It largely focuses on angel magic and spirit evocation, and use of Biblical charms and sometimes variants of Kabbalah. There is significant overlap, but the rationales for these traditions are different at heart.)

Both the creation of talismans and the making of petitions are endowed power largely through astrological timing. Some have asserted that Scholastic Image Magic is a subcategory of Electional Astrology, the choosing of fortunate times. It certainly is dependent upon it; but I and others believe in the importance of the materials used as well. There is no way to become minimally competent in this tradition of magic without being very skilled in Medieval or Renaissance Era Astrology.

Scholastic Image Magic may also include the creation of confections, suffumigations (incenses), and potions; though these are often considered to be alchemy.

Many of us who have experimented with Scholastic Image Magic believe it to be the most powerful (and sometimes dangerous) form of magic in Western history. The demands usually exceed those of other magical traditions in numerous ways, and the results are proportional. It is not for the dilettante. Many of us have studied under Christopher Warnock, whose RenaissanceAstrology.com is a great place to learn a major flavor of this from tabula rasa. Without having some background in the generalities of Traditional Astrology you’ll probably be very confused. John Michael Greer often describes this stuff as the rocket science of the Middle Ages. (And he should know, because he translated Picatrix with Christopher Warnock a few years back.)

Scholastic Image Magic has a body of literature which we refer to frequently. The most central text is the Picatrix, which has two popular editions at present. Another, harder to find text is the Treasure of Alexander. Cornelius Agrippa’s Three Books on Occult Philosophy (especially the upcoming complete Eric Purdue translation) is an excellent source for Scholastic Image Magic and much else besides, and large portions of the somewhat derivative The Magus from Francis Barrett are appropriate. Though the available version of De Imaginibus is purged of suffumigation recipes and incantations, it is still of great value. I find the Liber Lunae to be very fascinating, and has had an influence on Kabbalah. The Mysterium Sigillorum and the Kyranides have content of interest. Many shorter texts such as the Quindecim Stellis and De Mineralibus, Seals & Stones of Solomon, Seals & Sigils of Chael, Talismans of Hermes, and the Seals of Thetel are also very important, and sections of the works of Giordano Bruno and even parts of the so-called Greater Key of Solomon merit study. But all of this is built upon a foundation of antique astrology and metaphysics, such as the essential writers Guido Bonatti, Johannes Sacrobosco, and Abu Yusuf Al-Kindi, which the authors expected the readers to have expertise in.

I have studied and practiced Scholastic Image Magic in a very focused way for over a decade, I have witnessed it cure incurable diseases, draw hundreds of thousands of dollars from nowhere, conjure storms, raise and banish spirits, repel dangerous animals, hypnotize and compel obedience, and make a subject fall hopelessly in love. In my own experience it is vastly closer to the kind of magic which appears in myths and Fantasy literature than anything else I’ve seen. (And I have expertise in many other traditions of magic, which have their own distinctive advantages.)

If this tickles your fancy and you’re considering putting in the effort, welcome aboard. SIM is one of my very favorite flavors of magic. If it isn’t your cup of tea, there’s a lot of additional material on my blog to inform and tantalize.
