Mansions of the Moon eBook and Paperback

Some time ago when I was performing moon invocations something caught my attention powerfully; I had heard about the Mansions of the Moon, but at that moment I hadn't had the chance to work with them and I decided to start to learn and investigate about that system of magic, and I found out that also it is not widespread as I supposed it would be.

I purchased a book from a recognized magician and author and well, I started to learn day after day and I started to perform the rites. As I progressed with the experiments I decided to make the next move: I would perform the rituals according my Tradition which is the Golden Dawn and I adapted the rites to this style of magic and since I was also performing planetary magic from another well known magician and friend, Fr RO, I didn't hesitate in start experiments with these angels by direct invocation.

One of the things that lead me to make the adaptation, is that I found out that the methods I was performing although they are very effective, I didn't feel the total connection to the style of Ceremonial magic I'm used to. My own experiments lead to take notes and do experiments on how the ritual should be performed according my Tradition and that's how after some thoughts, my book was born.

I'm posting the Introduction of the book, so you can have the idea on what the presented material is about. If you're interested, you can order the book Here or you can also click the link on the Header or just above "My Followers" gadget on the right.

The full introduction of the book is here:

"The mansions of the moon is an amazing area of lunar magic which is not widely known from the perspective of direct angelic invocation, since most of the available material has confined this system to the elaboration of talismans, based on few known and rare ancient documents like the Picatrix.

There are twenty eight mansions, and they are influenced and affected directly by the signs of the zodiac, as the system itself refers to the passage of the moon through the zodiac wheel. The configuration used in this book is the Tropical system, which consist of observing the movement of the moon from the earth’s perspective, therefore each mansion have a fixed size in the zodiacal wheel and do not consider the variations in the sun movement in space as it happens with the Sidereal system.

The purpose of this book is to show you how to perform the invocation of the president angels ruling the twenty eight mansions, and not limiting this practice to the construction of talismans. The format of the rites on this book is based on the Golden Dawn Tradition and if you prefer not to perform the parts corresponding to this Tradition, you can omit them. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced magician, you will find that the experiments with these entities are very interesting, and you will have a full explanation on how to safely perform these rites as well.

The first part of the book describes the preparation process; the second part continues with the list of the mansions, angels and their lamens and a brief description of their offices; and the third part, put everything together in explaining the rite step by step.
Keep in mind that this is not the edition of ancient documents or a product of scholar research; therefore don’t expect footnotes citing ancient manuscripts. This is the account of my experiences with these entities from direct invocation. It is a practical manual, and not the copy of a history book.

Remember that every magician is responsible for their actions and how they perform the rites described in this manual. Every cause and intention for good or ill will have their effects and I don’t imply any guarantee in the success of the performance of these rites. Before attempting any of them, use your common sense and your good judgment if you want to modify or exclude or add steps and parts to these rites."

I really hope you find value in the presented material.

Enochian Dreams

Some time ago I was terrified by the word "Enochian", since I had heard stories on how dangerous and powerful these beings are. The next thing I know, is that I had to incorporate Enochian workings in my rites and that put extra stress on me.

I started to do my invocations and definitely I felt the power in the energies and the manifestation of my magical intentions; but even though, I still had my reserves on the system.

One night I had a very vivid dream, I was building Enochian tools and I was being instructed by some being which I didn't see directly in the dream; he was talking to me and telling me how to do it. Some other night, this being appeared again in another dream and this time he was teaching me something in the Tablets and I was fascinated.

I started to get information on the system and of course some books too; after reading and understanding how things work, I decided to make my own Tablets and finally finished them: Watchtowers, Planetary and now I'm trying to do my SDA. Someone might say "hey, scan the book and that's it", but one thing I have learned is that when you do your own tools, you infuse your energies and you get attuned into the current, besides you get something back too.

In another dream I was with some fellow magicians, and we were performing a Jupiter rite and somehow we were also incorporating Enochian elements. I could not see their faces but I knew who they were and again, another entity was there.

Lately I've been doing more Enochian workings and I think I'm getting into the current and therefore, I'm understanding this system much better and one thing I must make clear here, is that I'm not a historian or scholar, I'm a practicing magician: I comply with my grade work in my Order and I do my rites to what I call "a life management plan", so, if a scholar comes to brag on their historical findings...that's ok.

Peace profound, in Light, Life and Love.

Birthday on a Martial day

Today, 40 years ago I visited this planet again and I'm still not able to remind how many incarnations I have on my back, but one thing I do know: I'm not the same of some years ago; I am experiencing, enjoying and also suffering a big transformation in my life. I found the path to the reintegration of my being into what I was supposed to be before the fall.

I'm a very very old soul, but in my heart I feel like I just reborn and I'm full of youth; ready to walk into the great unknown, and my advantage now is that I have made great allies, visible and invisible, and despite I don't belong to his Order by birth, I belong to his Order by heart.

I'm talking about the great Kamael, Archangel of the warriors, bearer of the sword, the one who will destroy the evil with severity, and tonight I'll celebrate my return to this planet with him; giving thanks for all he has done for me.

"Great Archangel of Madim, great Kamael, in the name of Elohim Gibor I thank thee for the power and strenght invested in me, in my sword and in my life; be always by my side and defeat those who want to cause harm to me, and my loved ones; in the name of the Lord of the Universe, who is my creator and your creator, let there always be peace between us. Amen".

Peace profound, in Light, Life and Love
