Maybe we should let the witches out of the dungeons, after 600 years?
Last week I saw an interesting article on what makes a witch a witch, " Forging the Power of a Witch ," by Peter Grey. Written in the language of a true bard, this essay is packed with rich language, complex sentence structures, and a turn of phrase that br...

On Scarlet Imprint and Disagreements between People

A Bune Spirit Pot, and Some Bune Spirit Pot Fun
A few months ago, a client asked me to make him a Spirit Pot for an entity from the Lemegeton's Goetia. I bought the ingredients, and before I put them together, he canceled. This morning, I was doing some Work with Bune, and I got the urge to take those in...

Accomplishin' the Great Work, and having a kick-ass time!
Introduction
After years of dilligent pursuit of the attainment of the Philosopher's Stone, RO prised the Hermetic nature of existence out of the darkness of the occult. Today he's entered the final phase of the Great Work, Projection, wherein the Stone itself is ground and used to heal the sick, bring longevity and joy, and to heal the world.
