Synopsis:
"Scattered amongst the pages of the Talmud and of the Zohar we find elusive mentions about the Maaseh Kishuf, the Work of Sorcery, and the Maaseh Shedim, the Work of Demons. This grimoire gathers this dispersed knowledge to reconstitute the forbidden craft called in the pages of the Zohar the Serpentine Sorcery, attributed to the wicked Balaam and taught by the King of the Shedim, the demon Ashmedai, also known as Asmodeus."

The Talmud tells how the benign shedim conversed with the rabbis who were gifted with the "language of the demons," instructing them in the knowledge of sorcery; and in the Zohar we find that Asmodeus was Solomon's teacher, and that he gave to him a book of magical knowledge. Uniting academic research with the instructions of his own maggid shed (demonic teacher), Humberto Maggi presents a powerful combination of necromantic experience and scholarly knowledge to create a small jewel in the Solomonic Tradition of Magic."

Quarter leather bound + Moire Silk front and back cover

The Vulvic Trans-Missionary is gnostic in origination, having been pulled from the aethyric domains that surround the self-ensorcelled and drawn down from the astral-zones that abide within Otherness; made visionary through the Projection of I outside the Circumference of Self into dimensions beyond our accustomed and acknowledged environments."

Three verses from the book:

"I consume that which is and issue forth that which is not - my banquet a feast of the light and my womb-tomb is kala of the night. My dance is reversal, as I spin within the motionlessness of leaping by standing still. There is naught but that which IS: being from non-being manifesting an eternal masquerade of phantasmal-subjectivity objectifying desirous flesh and dreams of nodal awareness. I ravage the self-sane via Self-madness - THAT is but a web incalculable, a dimension beyond ego-absorbtion and reason of mind, bending free-will and crafting fate-mine: explosion of darkness to reveal the particle of dream't object that is eternally dreamless. I am a mirror that reflects what it sees, seer of that which is beyond the eye - a reflectory glance of the object momentarily subjectified." 
~ Verse II of The Vulvic Trans-Missionary

"The force that indwells within all form am I, the soul of infinite bodies: the essence of all shape and hidden within the occult conclaves of each thing, as the adytum of all-being - manifesting as diversity and uniquity. Occurence of the infernal and empyrean inter-dimensional entity, daemonic-heart of genius dwelling as secret configuration residing within the vessels of flesh: mind and matter pushing forth from the unrevealed crown of all creation! A diaphanous light of swirling density, a lightning-strike of madness rising forth from the darkness of the infinite deep abyssal waters of naught: experience the path wrought by desire for fulfillment of Self, for thou art self by Self created - spirit of the waters of the night, a gleaming cast of moon-light crashing against the waves and then disappearing forever." 
~ Verse XI of The Vulvic Trans-Missionary

"The ambrosial vulva-phallic-entity am I: carnal and deviant consummation, erogenous, erotic, and erotogenic ecstasy: gratification and fulfillment in desirous frenzy! I am a-sexual, creating from myself for myself and give unto myself: I am uni-sexual, taking and giving to myself for my own pleasure: I am bi-sexual, using the twain aspects of the creative-duality of the masculine and feminine for my own design - hetero-homo-auto-sexual spirit of cosmos giving and taking with voluptuous soul: I am trans-sexual and taboo, reaching beyond the flesh and the urge to sate, my dark-soul a mask of provocative and sensual chaos, calling all to enter the black-womb of my non-being - desire is to become Desire, wanton need to express instinctual impulse!" 
~ Verse XIX of The Vulvic Transmissionary








LIBER CORONZOM:
An Enochian Grimoire' 
by A.D. Mercer
Standard Edition
List Price: $68.50


Liber Coronzom is a hands on approach to Enochian magic, cutting through all the superfluous material and focusing instead on the original Dee Manuscripts and their application, thus making it a genuine grimoire of practical magic Culled from years of personal experience and research, Liber Coronzom offers a different approach to interacting with the Enochian angels; first encountered by Dr. John Dee on the late 16th century. Liber Coronzom also reveals how the name Coronzom itself has been misspelt since it first appeared in print in 1659, and examines how this error may have come about. Liber Coronzom is also the first work to correlate the Dee material with contemporary grimoires to give a more complete picture of practical magical work of the mid to late 16th Century.

Most importantly Liber Coronzom highlights a genuine, hitherto unexplored, short cut into the final 10 Aethyric realms. However, to achieve this, one must first confront Coronzom himself in order to make this transition. It is the first time such a short cut has been identified and is therefore unique to this work.

Liber Coronzom is also the first work to examine this Enochian archetype in the light of eastern mysticism and Jungian psychology.

Liber Coronzom is divided into three books. Beginning with an examination of the origins of the Enochian System and how it was first revealed to Dr. John Dee, in particular the origins of The Demon of the Abyss – Coronzom

Click to Enlarge.
Book 1 - Liber Hermetica. The first part of book one offers insights into traditional Western Hermetic Magic and includes practical rituals designed to empower the aspirant before moving onto true Enochian magic. These include some reworking of traditional rituals tailoring them to the Enochian system. The later part offers clear instructions for the preparation for the work to come, including instructions drawn from Dees own diaries and from personal experimentation by the author.

Book 2 – Liber Enochia begins with an examination of the nature and possible history of the Enochian language prior to Dr. John Dee. Liber Enochia then moves on to a detailed exposition of the means and method of communicating with the Enochian realms and the entities, which inhabit them. Liber Enochia includes detailed rituals and incantations, drawn directly from Dees own hand, and compiles them into a fully workable system of exploration and invocations, including the aforementioned direct route into the heart of the Enochian system. This includes rituals to activate the Sigillum Dei Aemeth, opening and exploring the Four Great Watchtowers, and finally to the confrontation to Coronzom.

Book 3 – Liber Aethyrica, the final book takes us beyond the Abyss and on to a journey through the nine highest Aethyrs. This book includes a new transcription of the Call of the Aethyrs the lengthy incantation, which opens up these highest realms. This is followed by descriptions of the authors own direct experiences of the highest Enochian realms.

Liber Coronzom finishes with a number of commentaries and appendices exploring in greater detail the most significant aspects of the entire work. The grimoire finally ends with an examination of Coronzom as an example of the Shadow Archetype from Jungian analytical psychology, the first time such a study has been undertaken.

KODESH HACHOL VOL. I
by Matthew Wightman
List Price: $75.50
As has already been revealed, the Kitvei Kodesh HaChol will concern the confrontation with the Conflict, Violence and Strife of the polarities and contradictions of the One (the Atzmut), the Essence of ALL and NONE.

As a written work, it will necessarily appear to represent the particular perspective of the Sitra Achra, the Other Side of Opposition to the Cosmic expressions already familiar to us: the Holy Bible, the Mystical Commentary of the Zohar, the Traditional Liturgies of Synagogue and Church, the Dogmatic Theology of Orthodoxy, and the Spirit of Creation and Cosmos.

For those familiar with my previous work and the nature of the Current 61, you will know that Opposition with and within the One is no simple matter, going far beyond simple yes and no-saying, and that it is often in what is not said, what cannot be said, that the Truth is revealed.

The words of this work will serve as a roadmap to these non-places, these gaps, where Knowledge and Truth-that which ruptures the Unrupturable One-can be found.

You will find within these texts the tension of contradiction between the words of the Creator and those that seek to undo his Word, World and Work. For those with eyes to see and ears to hear, you will find a path to Knowledge and Truth opened in the wake of the Serpent’s Opposition. It will be in the gap, in the silence, created by this Opposition that the path forward (and backward) will be revealed.

As with the Emanations of the Ain Sof, each volume of the Kitvei Kodesh HaChol will be indispensable to understanding the Work as a Whole, of which each volume is a microcosmic manifestation. Each volume will be broken into five equal and intertwined chapters that individually will reveal profound Wisdom and Knowledge specific to its scope, but which collectively are meant to offer Understanding contained within, yet beyond their parts. Those parts will concern: The Scripture of the Sitra Achra, Scriptural Commentary, Prayers and Devotion, Theology and Philosophy, and the Rites, Rituals and Goetic Evocation of the Ultimate Legion of El Acher.

THE STARSTONE TEMPLE 
by AION 131
List Price: $21.50

On the full moon of July, 1994, a new gateway was opened permanently by the culmination of the Shakti from the Shoemaker-Levy comet's collision-dissolution into Jupiter. This place, while intensely personal in some ways, was communicated to be a place where the Adepts of the Silver Star, circula 1994, may meet and experience three things:

1. Comm-union with Brothers and Sisters of like mind,
2. Forming a tighter link with the unity of our magickal strengths and
the Group Consciousness and
3. Together connect with interstellar energies and cosmic intelligences.

The zones mentioned are the traditional 10-zones (the Tree of Life),

THE FOLLOWING NEW TITLE
FROM THREE HANDS PRESS:




THIRTEEN PATHWAYS OF OCCULT HERBALISM
by Daniel A. Schulke

Paperback Edition: 144 pages, List Price: $18.95

Hardback Edition: Limited Edition. A Fine Custom Cloth Volume in Vierling illustrated dust jacket. List Price: $34.95

Publisher: Three Hands Press; 1st edition (May 22, 2017)


FROM THE PUBLISHER:
The discipline of Occult Herbalism encompasses the knowledge and use of the magical, spiritual, and folkloric dimensions of plants. This perennial wisdom animates many global spiritual traditions, especially those which have maintained their integrity of transmission even in the face of industrial development and cultural destruction. Often concealed within the deepest strata of the Western Esoteric Traditions, this green strand of wisdom, though obscured, is a potent legacy of all magic, sorcery, and occult science. In addition to the hard sciences of botany, ethnology, agriculture and ethnopharmacology, a number of pathways can assist the magical herbalist in furthering the depth of understanding and integrity of personal approach. Thirteen Pathways of Occult Herbalism circumscribes the metaparadigm of herbal magical practice, providing useful examples of its manifestation, as well as demonstrating its time-honored routes of inquiry.

Concealed in the depth of the Western Esoteric Traditions, there is a Green Strand of Wisdom, and though obscured, it is a potent source and legacy for all magic and sorcery, and encompasses the knowledge and use of the magical, spiritual, and folkloric dimensions of plants. In addition to the exoteric sciences of botany, ethnology, agriculture and ethno pharmacology, there are a number of hidden pathways that can assist the magical herbalist and practitioner in furthering their depth of understanding. THIRTEEN PATHS OF OCCULT HERBALISM examines the ways in which this specialized knowledge can be acquired, and is based on a perennial wisdom that animates many of the world’s spiritual traditions, especially those that have been able to maintain a firm lineage over the centuries. Eleven illustrations by Benjamin Vierling. 144 pages. Octavo.

THE CHARMERS' PSALTER
by Gemma Gary
Paperback Edition: 120 pages
Publisher: Troy Books (April 27, 2017)
List Price: $14.95

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
The Psalms, mysterious in their origins and possibly far pre-dating their appearance within Judeo-Christian Scripture, have a long history of magical use. We encounter the Psalms within the rites and talismanic magic of the grimoires, and their prolific employment within Charming, Cunning and folk-magical tradition. Herein the methods of their use are varied and incorporate magical acts of utterance, inscription, bottling, burning, sprinkling, pouring and burial in conjunction with various substances and materials.
Serving a vast array of needs, principally for healing, protection and the averting of evil, but also long employed within acts of cursing, the Psalms are an established feature of traditional operative magic yet also an indicium of engaging with the world of spirit, the divine and the unseen:

Whilst the traditional magical uses of the Psalms may appear to be almost entirely for the serving of material needs and desires, rather than for purposes of spiritual advancement, they are possessed of great beauty, and in one's recourse to them in times of distress and great difficulty there is to be attained a moment of contemplative comfort, and an acknowledgement of the immanence of the divine presence; turned to for spiritual strength and assistance.”

(From the Introduction and Manner of Use)

The Charmers' Psalter is born from a personal working collection of magical Psalms and other verbal charms, here presented in a convenient 'pocket book' format (100mm x 150mm), so that it may always be on hand to the contemporary Charmer for reference should need of it arise.

About the Author:
Nigel Pearson was born and brought up in Suffolk, England, where he still lives and works, having a great love for the East Anglian countryside and never having felt the need to leave it. He has spent most of his life studying the myths, legends and magic of various cultures, but mostly the native lore of the British Isles. He has been a practising Traditional Witch for over 35 years and has the bruises to prove it. He jointly owns and runs Sacred Earth, a healing and esoteric supply business, with his husband Anthony Pearson-Moorhouse, helped by their two dogs, Bilbo and Bramble, who mostly just get in the way. In the past he has worked for an Insurance broking company, the N.H.S. and also British Telecom, but now much prefers the "quiet life." Many years ago he did leave East Anglia briefly to study for a degree in the Humanities, but had far too much fun being a student, so passed on the actual degree; he does, however, possess Practitioner Diplomas in Advanced Herbal Medicine and Homoeopathy - which he sometimes uses.

Whether one remains or not is a matter of will, karma and indeed choice.

I am Zeros and Ones;
An Enigma,
Composed of Cells.
Atoms
In Motion;
Luminescence Ablaze …

Poetry is the language of the magickian and the poems within this book are of great practical use in both invocation and evocation. The words found in these poems do not so much describe as bring forth the might and majesty of Lucifer into the mind, heart, and into the very Temple of the practitioner.
Lucifer although archaic, is very much a Spirit for our times. Within this great light bearer seethes and boils the uncontained archetype of resistance. The Fallen Bright Angel is the very figure of rebellion. As ‘weavers will look for patterns, junkies for escapes,’ rebels seek freedom and shoulder the responsibility with which it is accompanied. This is a book written by rebels for rebels whose songs burn with determination, honesty, integrity and passion.

THE ORACLES OF APOLLO:
Practical Ancient Greek Divination for Today
by John Opsopaus
Paperback: 288 pages
Publisher: Llewellyn Publications (July 8, 2017)
List Price: 21.99

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Throughout history, divination has been an important tool for seeking guidance from the gods. Fortunately, several classical divination systems are available to us again today. The Oracles of Apollo shows how to use two rediscovered divination systems: the Alphabet Oracle, a system that uses the ancient Greek alphabet, and the Counsels of the Seven Sages, a series of 147 short, oracular statements that were inscribed on tablets at Delphi.

This book shares divination techniques and rituals―including the use of alphabet stones, dice, staves, beads, and coins―and interpretations of the outcomes to help you integrate the wisdom of the gods and goddesses. These oracles were originally designed thousands of years ago to provide insights into practical matters and deeper issues . . . and they can be used again today.


About the Author:
Dr. John “Apollonius” Opsopaus has practiced magic, divination, and Neopaganism since the 1960s. He has more than 30 publications in various magical and Neopagan magazines and designed the Pythagorean Tarot and wrote the comprehensive Guide to the Pythagorean Tarot (Llewellyn, 2001). He is the author of the forthcoming Oracles of Apollo (Llewellyn, 2017). Opsopaus frequently presents workshops on Hellenic magic and Neopaganism, Pythagorean theurgy, divination, and related topics. He is a member of the Grey Council and is past Dean of the Departments of Mathemagicks and Ceremonial Magick of the Grey School of Wizardry.

BETWEEN THE REALMS:
Cornish Myth and Magic
by Cheryl Straffon
Paperback: 158 pages
Publisher: Troy Books (October 15, 2013)


FROM THE PUBLISHER:
In this exploration of the Cornish Celtic Otherworld, Cheryl Straffon expertly guides us through a realm of traditional tales, stories, myths, legends and folklore wherein we encounter supernatural beings, such as fairies, piskeys, mermaids, witches, giants and other strange creatures. Between the Realms examines the writings of the folklorist collectors, and oral traditions born from the prehistoric sacred landscape of Cornwall. Cheryl explains how, in this material, we find themes and narratives strikingly similar to those encountered within much earlier works that refer to beliefs and events that were current in the ancient past. In turn we find that Celtic sagas and mythic tales seem to exhibit the same way of interfacing with the world of magic and spirit as seen in the beliefs and practices of many native indigenous peoples from around the world. As Cheryl tells us in her introduction to this book, 'It is a realm that has some similarities to our own, but one that is also strangely unfamiliar. It is a dangerous world to enter, but nevertheless one that can give new insights and experiences that change our world view when we return to our mundane world.'
