THE FOLLOWING OCCULT COLLECTIBLES



TAROT OF THE EMISSARY
By Sean Woodward
PUBLISHER: Design By ZosHouse/Sean Woodward, 2014
List Price: $84.50

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
"Although many elements in the gallery of this Tarot may seem very esoteric, Sean is keenly aware of the practical use of the tarot to speak to people at every level. With his commentary, he provides questions and keys whereby anyone may be guided into the wisdom of the oracle. Beyond this is his Vuduverse, ever extending and penetrating deep realms of magical research. Enter these realms and you will find yourself coming into your OWN."
- Sovereign Grand Master, OTOA-LCN



80 Cards, 2.75 x 4.75 inches, front and back printed full colour deck with 20 page booklet and card box.

Designed by Sean Woodward, an initiate of the OTOA-LCN, the Tarot of the Emissary utilises the framework of a traditional 78 card tarot, whilst exploring Voudon Gnostic fields of research that include H.P. Lovecraft, Thelema, Witchcraft, Qabala, Quantum Physics, Gholems and Trans-Yuggothian mechanics. It enters into the mythos of a Vuduverse explored in his essays and prose in publications such as Qliphoth, Sabbatica, Thirteenth Path and Silver Star.

CARREFOUR TAROT :
The Creole Cabala Tarot of the Four Crosses
By Sean Woodward
PUBLISHER: Design By ZosHouse/Sean Woodward, 2014
List Price: $79.50

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
'Excellent in the interpretation of the energies' - MICHAEL PAUL BERTIAUX

Designed by Sean Woodward, an initiate of the Ordo Templi Orientis Antiqua, the Carrefour Tarot deck is a NON STANDARD deck of 64 cards, based on the 16-fold system of the OTOA and Monastery of the Seven Rays. It explores the energies of the Masters, Initiates, Priests and Hierophants of the Four Crosses. It has influences from traditional Vodou, Gnostic and Cosmic Voudon.

"The main cards are in a state of Manifest Active Expression whilst the others are in Archetypal or Abstract form. This division enables a determination to be made in divination as to how the subject relates to these energies and powers and to the nature of situations. As the majority of the cards are assigned to the four great crosses, the elemental attributes of the directions can be explored for divinatory meaning. For simpler divination, the Manifest cards generally represent 'Yes', the Archetypal ones 'No'.

One owner gives an example of practical use of the deck. "What I do is ask a question and then I am usually directed to count a specific number of cards down. This is not something I normally do, but it has been occurring a lot since I started using this deck. I always draw cards one at a time and usually only work with a few per question (I don't use spreads). Whichever card comes up is naturally met with resistance because I have no idea what the card 'means'. So, instead of worrying about this I use the artwork itself to see symbols and images, sort of like scrying. A curve here, a twist there is enough to inspire the intuitional leaps that shake out the answer."
From THE LIVING ATUA OF THE CARREFOUR TAROT published in QLIPHOTH journal Opus III



64 Cards, 2.75 x 4.75 inches, front and back printed full colour deck with card box.

Printed by a leading games publisher in the USA, the Carrefour Tarot of the Four Crosses features original designs.

Unlike the 78 card traditional tarot, this deck of 64 cards is based upon the 16 fold system of the Ordo Templi Orientis Antiqua and La Coulevere Noire. Each card is a portal into the Vudu Gnostic space of the quarters as they radiate out from the Carrefour – the Crossroads or Kalfou of traditional Vodou.

An essay upon the lineage and use of the tarot for divination, spiritual wellbeing and magickal vision will be forthcoming in issue 3 of Qliphoth magazine.

This deck does NOT come with a booklet. It is an artist edition and an esoteric tool, an unlimited collectors product rather than a mass-produced item which is reflected in the pricing. 



The essay above will be made available, in PDF format, to owners of this deck. A link to download it will be provided as part of the ordering process.

NEW PRODUCT:

SARAH LAWLESS
BLACK ARTS FOUNDRY FLYING OINTMENTS









MANDRAKE FLYING OINTMENT
List Price: $24.95
Size: 1 fl.oz

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
Inspired by the witch Medea's simple but highly ritualized mandrake liniment from the ancient tale of Jason and the Argonauts. In the tale she tells Jason that applying it will protect him from any harm and lend him the powers of a god to steal the golden fleece.

True mandrake is the least harmful and most pleasant of its solanaceous cousins and has a long list of historical and magical uses. Excellent for ecstatic rites and safe for use in sex magic. Mandrake Flying Ointment is the one we recommend most to beginners and those looking for a safe ointment to use for any magical purpose. It is excellent for aiding in trance work / journeying/ hedgecrossing, and is also very good for ecstatic rites and sex magic (sensual massage anyone?).

Mandrake is also a wonderful external medicine for helping with sore joints and muscle pain, trouble sleeping, mild migraines, and the depressed funks we often fall into after a bad day (just don't mix it with any other serious medications you may be on without consulting your doctor first).

Ingredients: mandragora officinarum, poplar buds, sunflower oil, and pure filtered beeswax.


Instructions:

Safe for use multiple times a month. Safe to use in conjunction with alcohol. Apply a small circle as a test patch before ritual use in case of any allergic reactions. Apply a pea-sized amount the first time and increase as needed. To remove, wash the application areas with warm soapy water, drink plenty of water, and avoid fatty foods.

For more information please read: Flying Ointment FAQs

Store in a cool, dark, dry place for a shelf-life of up to 2 years after purchase. If you know you won't use it before the expiry date, you can store the ointment in the fridge or freezer between uses, but this will cause it to permanently liquify when room temperature again - it will still be usable and effective - just not solid.

Contraindications:

Poison - do not ingest - for external use only
Do not use if you have heart or kidney problems
Do not use if you are allergic to salicin/aspirin (present in poplar buds)
Do not use when pregnant or breastfeeding
Do not use when driving or operating machinery
Keep away from animals and children
Experiences will differ – individual reactions cannot be predicted

Henbane has been used in rites of magic and divination for thousands of years across Europe and Asia and its seeds found among the charms and talismans of buried völvas and in ancient recipes of ritual beers and incenses.

WITCHES' FLYING OINTMENT
List Price: $24.95
Size: 1 fl.oz

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
A recipe inspired by old absinthe recipes, the folklore of the witches' sabbat, and Aradia: The Gospel of Witches of Italy. An effective and safer, but not non-toxic, alternative to our other ointments. Along with the Mandrake Ointment, the Witches' Flying Ointment is one we recommend most to beginners. Also, if you find the plants in the solanceae family don't work for you, the thujone-containing artemisias in this ointment may instead.

The sacred herbs in this ointment have a long history of use for aiding in trance work, dream work, and travelling out of body. The artemisias of mugwort and wormwood as well as the balm of gilead are sacred to Diana, goddess and mother of witches. Rare enchanter's nightshade is sacred to the ancient witch Circe and bears her name in Latin. Fennel is sacred to Mercury and Prometheus, travellers between worlds. Yarrow is present to aid in seeing spirits, enhancing divination skills, and to ensure your safe return from otherwordly journeys. This flying ointment is perfect for your sabbatic, lunar, and divinatory rites.

Ingredients: wormwood, mugwort, enchanter's nightshade, yarrow, balsam poplar buds, fennel seed, essential oils, sunflower oil, and pure filtered beeswax.


Instructions:

Safe for use multiple times a month. Safe to use in conjunction with alcohol. Apply a small circle as a test patch before ritual use in case of any allergic reactions. Apply a pea-sized amount the first time and increase as needed. To remove, wash the application areas with warm soapy water, drink plenty of water, and avoid fatty foods.

FROM THE CREATOR'S PAGE:
FLYING OINTMENT FAQS
Posted by Sarah on Sunday, July 20, 2014


Sabbat Flying Ointment:

I receive a lot of questions about my flying ointments via email and social media with many of them being on the same topics so I have compiled ten of the most frequently asked questions about my ointments and their use. If you have any additional questions you don’t see listed please feel free to ask them in the comments and I will do my very best to answer. I’d also love to hear any feedback about those who have used my flying ointments for medicine and magic as it helps me as well as those who would like to give them a try.
Which one is best for beginners?
I always recommend either the Mandrake or Witches’ flying ointments to those just starting out as they are a gentler and more pleasant experience.

Which one is the strongest/best and will you make a stronger ointment?
No ointment recipe is stronger or better than the other, they are simply different as they use different herbs with different effects on different people. One may work great for you, but have no effect on another person. My patrons’ hands-down favourite ointment of choice, however, is the Sabbat Flying Ointment. If the ointments made with the solanaceae don’t work well for you, Witches’ Flying Ointment made with plants in the artemisia family may be a better choice. My ointments are made at the strength they are so they are safe for use by the general public. If you are looking for something stronger you may want to try something else instead such as smokable herbs or herb-infused liqueurs – wormwood is a good herb to start with.

Which one is best for divination/spirit communion? Henbane and Witches’ flying ointments are the best suited for the divinatory arts, mediumship, and necromancy. Mandrake can also be used for this purpose, especially when communing with deities or the dead, and also acts as magical protection from unwanted possession.
Which one is best for sex magic? Mandrake as an ancient aphrodisiac is the best for naughty acts as it won’t have any adverse effects with you mucous membranes like some of the other herbs might (henbane can cause skin irritation and abrasion). I highly recommend the Mandrake Flying Ointment for sensual body massage as well. Not only is it aphrodisiac, but it will also soothe any sore muscles and increase your energy levels should you have a partner who keeps you up all night. Friends who have used it (especially at Beltane) say the tin should come with a label that says “warning: may lead to orgies when combined with alcohol”.

How much should I use? I recommend that everyone start with a pea sized amount first to test their reaction to the ointment then to use more after. The standard dose for my ointment recipes are 1-2 tsps (5-10 ml) for women and smaller persons and 2-3 tsps (10-15 ml) for men or larger persons.

How often can I use one? They are safe to use multiple times a month, but I wouldn’t recommend daily use unless you are using them medicinally rather than magically.

Can I combine ointments? Yes, but I would recommend only using ones together that are made with a single herb like the Belladonna, Datura, Henbane, and Mandrake ointments. Use half the dose of each to make up a standard dose or a third if you are combining three.

How will it affect me? They affect everyone a little differently, but the main effects are intoxication, giddiness, and light-headedness. My flying ointments can be aphrodisiac, euphoric, sedative, analgesic, and psychoactive. Temporary side effects may include blurry vision, dry mouth, dizziness, and loss of time.

Are they dangerous? The only danger of external use comes from allergies and pre-existing medical conditions. If you are allergic to morphine do not apply ointments containing belladonna. Do not use them if you have a heart condition, serious kidney issues, or are on prescription medications such as antidepressants. Overall, they are about as dangerous as alcohol so use the same precautions.

What is the shelf life? My ointments have a minimum shelf life of 2 years, but when stored properly in a cool, dark and dry place they can last up to 5 years. Ointments can be placed in the fridge or freezer to extend their shelf life, but the ointment may liquify when brought back to room tempterature – this is completely normal.
