  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Ritual. I despretly need to do more. So I figured a community would inspire me.
  1. True, I grew up in a catholic family. Catholic school up until HS.
  2. I disagree. Many if not all of the demons of the abrahamic tradition were the daemons of the pagans. These intelligences root tradition seem to pre-date the those that classify them as malevolent spirits.
  3. Oh, and another than popped up in my brief study of Demonolatry. “The Enns” I’ve never heard of this before I started reading about the subject. It was a complete surprise.
  4. So I’ve looked around the for a topic and I couldn’t find one on this subject so I thought I’d start it. I’ve been reading a lot online about Daemonolatry and it’s history. I noticed that many are split on its system, and those that follow it praise its results. I’m thinking of buying a few books on the subject and I’ve noticed that S. Connolly isn’t the only arthur to write about it. I won’t list my other findings here unless needed for further discussion. The problem some seem to have with the system centers around the hierarchies of daemons, spelling of names and the many different paradigms it pulls from. But that doesn’t dissuade me because of it works, it works. But what disturbs me the most is the hate that comes off those that are opposed to it. I don’t see anyone attacking people for using the necronomicon saying “it’s not legitimate” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I simply would like to know if anyone has any experience with the system or even any of the text. I would like to get some.
  5. I’m curious to know if anyone has experimented using alternative approaches with the Goetia? I’ve seen blogs where some use the keys with candle magic, but would these ways produce pleasing results? ceremonial ritual is too taxing (in all avenues) for a modern day person.
  6. I've never had an ancestral altar. I only know of maybe 3 people I could put on it, and I've only known one personally. I have a small family.
  7. Fast question off the cuff, how many of you have a deity or spirit represented on your working alters? And why did you choose them? Are there more than one etc... I’m having trouble deciding.
  8. Sure i'll let you know what I think. I figured it wasn't anything special. What I saw really looking for was a system to follow and adept. My background is hermeticism and chaos magic so the ritual and folk style is foreign to me.
  9. I really enjoy work from Peter Grey, I have many works from Scarlet Imprint. I recently finished reading "The Red Goddess" which I very much enjoyed pulled some useful arte from that work. Before that I did read "Apocalyptic Witchcraft" I liked the text but I found it to be more of a contextual work in modernity of how workers of the craft should move forward. It is one of the Text the inspired me to join the community. I also enjoyed "Lucifer: Princeps" though I found it to be half baked, I am aware Mr Grey is working on the sequel "Lucifer: Praxis" but I feel its been a long time coming. That work is based on his style of Luciferian Witchcraft. I can say it is much needed when "Michael Ford" is somehow leading the torch in that tradition. I recently ordered some new material and should be receiving it tomorrow. "The Horn of Evenwood", "Letters from the Devils forest" by "Robin Artisson" and "Six Ways: Approaches & Entries for Practical Magic" by "Aidan Wachter" (Worth looking into him) I decided to go with Artisson because I resonate with his writing style. I was able to find a digital copy of "The Horn of Evenwood" After reading the first 40 pages or so I wanted a physical copy. I have a pull towards it and I feel it will work with me.
  10. Yes I agree, the approach I figured is what's mostly different.
  11. Thanks ShadowCat! I've been looking a lot at Ms Gary! I was just a bit worried he style maybe region locked. But the more I think about it the more foolish that seems to me.

  13. His work seems appealing, but I don't know if it holds true.
  14. Hello, TW. I'm still fairly new here and I've opened this new thread seeking a bit of advice. Advice on transition. For years I've been a "Chaotic Hermeticist" I'm trying to transition to a traditional path of witchcraft. at the moment I'm having trouble deciding between some reading material. I think i've read enough blogs, I want something structured. below are a list of books and my thoughts on what i've researched on them. please give me your input.

  15. I agree! I never understood why that sticks so hard referencing male witches.
