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.

Peace profound, in Light, Life and Love

  1. Care Frater,

    as a fellow Golden Dawn initiate and Martinist, I must congratulate you on your work on the Mansions of the Moon, which I have purchased recently. I have been thinking for some time about a possible ritual that would be specific to the Lunar angels. The one you developed answers my needs. As all practicing magicians, I will have to adapt it to my own specifics, but the basis you provide is sound. Thank you, from my heart.

    In LVX,
    Frater VPL

  2. Care Fr VPL,

    Thanks for your review, and I hope this material will help you to perform the experiments and develop your own.

    In Light, Life and Love,

  3. Care Frater VL,

    recently I bought the eBook. I like it ver much and am looking forward to start working with these entities.
    However, upon reviewing the book, two inconsistencies sprang to my eye: the name of the Angel of the 6th mansion is given as Dirachiel. You wrote that name with a Shin instead of a Cheth, rendering the name (in Hebrew) as Dirashiel.
    Also, the name of the Angel of the 13th mansion, Jazeriel, starts with a Tzaddi (not with a Yof, as one would think).
    Could you please clarify the issue?

    in L.V.X.,
    Frater K.

    P.S. Keep up the good work!
