The Living Death
So, how you doin'? Feeling dead? Just a little bit, inside? Maybe lots, and not constrained to remain stuck on the inside? Do I need to paint you a bleak picture of the miserable existence we spend so much of our time focused on? Jobs, relationships... fuck...

Magicians are Opinionated Assholes
We want what we want harder than most people. We value our desires in ways that others don't. We look at all the "you can't do that" comments in life, and we're like, "who says? I do what I want." It's what drives us to accomplish the Great Work, to become ...

Distant Thunder Rumbling on the Horizon... RO in Print!
"World creation is friggin’ complicated. In Crowley’s Thelema, we learn the magick number is always 11. That’s seven planetary spheres and four elemental ones. Every magical act that we perform takes the intricate layering of the seven planetary forces arou...

I haven't blogged for quite so time. There are so many changes occurring in my life right now and I have also been devoting quite a bit of time to the Great Work. Something happened tonight that, to some, would have been, "No...

Cube Farm Magic
I work from home these days, and I tend to take it for granted that I can just print off a picture of Hermes, light a candle and incense, say a prayer, and have instant magics on demand. I have to remind myself that everyone doesn't live exactly like I do s...

Congratulations on Your Recent Trauma!
This magic stuff has gone to my head. I can tell. I really believe this stuff, and it seems to work. It's not my fault. The other day someone I'm friends with on FaceBook had a terrible thing happen to him. I met the person at a conference, I think (there w...

No more Hermetic Diagnoses
Hey everyone, I am no longer offering the Hermetic Diagnosis service. It takes too long, and most of you already know what they're going to say, honestly. You rock, and you should do more magic. That shit that's bothering you will go away as soon as you cha...

Introduction
I speak from my own experiences, from my own context about things the way I see them. If you want to read this blog and distill truths that may apply to your own path, know that you will have to filter out my bullshit, just like I have to filter out everyone else's. This is not a bullshit free zone, this is the RO bullshit zone. Bullshit comes with the territory, and I'm a Taurus, for Christ's sake. There will be bullshit. For more info on what kind of BS you'll have to filter out, see this post.
