1. What is Magick

2. Types of magick - Sympathetic, Angel Magick,  Voodoo, Santeria, Chaos Magick, Satanism



First What is Magick?

Have you ever made a wish , and blew out a candle? Have you ever made wish and thru a penny in a fountain?

Have you ever wished for soemthing so hard it happend?  This is magick. Yes people use magick many times not knowing they are doing magick. We must understand magick is wihtin all of us. What makes magick good or "evil" is  the heart. Magick itself is not good nor evil, it just is. Have you ever thought when you are born your heart beats without you thinking of it, that is magick.

MAGICK def by Crowley

is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will.*

(Illustration: It is my Will to inform the World of certain facts within my knowledge. I therefore take "magical weapons," pen, ink, and paper; I write "incantations"—these sentences—in the "magical language" i.e. that which is understood by people I wish to instruct. I call forth "spirits" such as printers, publishers, booksellers, and so forth, and constrain them to convey my message to those people. The composition and distribution is thus an act of


by which I cause Changes to take place in conformity with my Will.)

 Magic: Magic is the art of affecting the manifest through the Unmanifest. The manifest is all that can be seen, touched, perceived, manipulated, imagined, or understood. The Unmanifest is none of these things. It is the place, or rather the non-place, from which everything issues. All that comes into being comes from the Unmanifest. All that passes away goes back to the Unmanifest.

Magic: According to the famous occultist Aleister Crowley, magick is "the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will." ... In fact, Crowley... says that "every intentional act is a Magickal Act." If you follow his line of reasoning, there is a great deal of validity in what he says, although it is not what we are seeking at this time. We need to make the definition of magick a bit longer: Magick is the science and art of causing change (in consciousness) to occur in conformity with will, using means not currently understood by traditional Western science.

Magic: The movement of natural (but little understood) energies from the human body and from natural objects to manifest change. Once a world-wide practice, Christianity attempted to stamp it out because magic placed power in the hands of the people. Early Christians linked magic with “Satan,” a false association that continues to this day.

  Basics of Magick  / Spell casting ( Mystic's BOS)

We're going to discuss magick. Many of us are just a little bit scared of magick. But if you've ever made a wish when you blew out the candles on a birthday cake ...  wished on a star ... crossed your fingers for luck ... said a prayer ...  congratulations ... you're an experienced magickian! Now all we have to do is hone the craft just a little bit.

The first thing I want you to remember ... YOU are your own "boss" ... priest/ess ... magickian ... and  nobody else makes the decisions, gets the good stuff when it arrives, or pays the price for the mistakes. It's all yours... so you want to learn to do it as well as you can. What I hope you DON'T want to do is to continue to be afraid of magick ... because it can change your life for the better.

The word magick (or magic) comes from the word magi ... the original Magi were Persian priests who were skilled sorcerers. So magick is an occult skill ... occult meaning a natural science that delves into the secret mysteries of the mind and the world. The Magi were wise ... they produced amazing results through using their powers carefully and responsibly.

Magick is about energy ... bending and changing energy. We gather it from the world ... or from Deity, the Universe, whatever you'd like to call it ... We work it into a strand of power, and weave it into the tapestry of our lives. We can't create energy ... we also can't destroy it. Energy IS. What we can do is reshape it.

One of the wonderful things about magick is that, while we are changing energy ... we are changing ourselves. Just working magick transforms things inside us ... our self confidence improves ... that's because we're actively creating our own destiny.

Magick, for the most part, is NOT flashy ... it's actually rather simple. Unless you want to get into ceremonial magick ... which is another class in itself. All we do is use words ... components ... thoughts ... energy ... to manifest change subtly. So you want to remember ...complicated is not better. What you're after is effective ... not flashy.  That doesn't mean you can't be creative and add your own personal touch ...  you can, and you should. But something as simple as chanting about washing away a problem while you run water and watch it go down the drain can be VERY effective. It's a trial and error thing to find the magick that works best for you.

Thoughts are things. As above (the energy going back and forth between you and Deity) ... so below (the physical manifestation). Change HOW you see something ... and you will change what you see.

It's important to make sure that your thoughts 'line up' with your magick. If you spend some time crafting a spell to help you find a job, and then AFTERWARD think "geez,  I'll never find a good job" ... oops! you may have just 'wiped out' your own effectiveness. You must "act in accord" with your magickal workings ...  and if you don't do it, you might as well not start the magick in the first place.

Just working toward a more positive life is certainly a magickal exercise ... it's not necessarily magick in terms of actual "spellwork" ... but YOU are your magick ... your life is your magick ... and making your life better is making better magick, and vice versa.

Affirmations work wonders ... when you craft your affirmation, you want to make sure it's from a positive point of view ... you don't want to say, "I won't put myself down anymore" for example ... you want to say, "I'm positive about my life." Instead of, "I will be a better person" ... you say "I'm a wonderful, beautiful person." Always phrase your affirmation like it's already true. Then post it somewhere where you'll see it ... write it over and over... think it when you have to wait in line ... say it right before you go to sleep... when you wake up... the more you internalize it, the more it will be true for you.

Remember that magick is natural ... not supernatural. Respect life ... if your magick is anti-life in any way, you'll get yourself in trouble. Be spontaneous ... magick isn't always really, really serious or really, really time consuming in preparation. Lots of Witches have great fun conjuring up parking spaces at the mall, for instance.  So we don't have to worry about formality all the time ... magick can be fast and fun.

We also want to use magick to be in better touch with ourselves,  our spiritual nature, and our deity. When we use "low magick" ... what many call folk magick ... we begin to learn a lot about other cultures, and diversity, because we begin to study different kinds of magick, and we become more aware, global people. And we also become more aware of ourselves and our needs and talents as we begin to personalize our magick.

I understand not wanting to "screw up" magickally ... but the problem is, magick takes practice, just like most things ... and if you don't DO it ... you'll never be good at it. Besides, don't you think the Goddess KNOWS when you're trying to learn? That's the very reason why we end our magickal workings and rituals with some form of "with harm to none, and for the good of all" ...  we're giving the Universe an "out" ... we're saying, "You know better than me, so if I haven't done this right, then stop the magick in its tracks."

When you start practicing magick, you're also practicing building closeness with the Goddess and the Universe, and believing you're working with divine power. You probably won't become really, really good at it overnight ... but in time, you will ... in fact, you will amaze even yourself if you just practice. ( I know not all witches choose to work with a specific Goddess thats ok)


 Fairy Comments & Graphics

Another important thing to remember ...  the only limits to your magick are the limits in your own mind. You create them ... and as long as you believe in them, you're stuck with them. You're going to get what you really believe in and what's really in your mind.

Also remember ... good things are rarely easy. Magick is no exception, effort, time are required. This is something that can change your life ... isn't it worth working at? Most of the obstacles you will face are things like disbelief ... insecurity ... lack of focus ...  impatience. When we have those things like disbelief and insecurity, just remember that they can be balanced by faith ... by working with your own two hands ... strong will ... persistence ... a good heart ... all those things add up to success.
Remember what the Bible says, because it's TRUE ...  with faith, all things are possible. Be very specific ... if you're unclear about your wants and needs, wait until you figure it out before you use magick. Stop questioning everything... believe. Be. Breathe deeply... feel the possibilities. You all have good minds ... you are able to make choices in your own behalf ... and that's part of what magick is. Magick is a tool ... and it's not a whole lot different from any other tool. When you make dinner ... you probably use a knife. A knife can be a very helpful, or a very dangerous, tool. Then there's electricity ... scary ... but we use it.

We've grown used to those things ... snd so we use them, in spite of the fact that they can be dangerous. I'd like you to at least think about trying to get used to magick ... because you will eventually feel the same way, and it will enrich your life.

In magick ... you get what you ask for. You send a request off to the Universe ... and the Universe finds a way to meet that request. The Universe has an amazing sense of humor. For that reason, we must ask carefully, or risk the Trickster Gods using us as the joke of the day. <wink>

Let's say you need a car ... we say, "Powers that be, I create this spell to bring a car to me." Shortly thereafter, your 5 year old gives you his favorite Hot Wheels. So how do we avoid this? By being specific ... very specific.

"I create this spell to bring love into my life." You might get a dog or a cat. It's too vague, and may bring something other than the kind of love you're looking for.

"I create this spell to bring a romantic love into my life." Still not specific enough ... I could end up with a married man, a one-night stand, a stalker.

"I create this spell to find a wonderful, perfect two story house with a detached garage that's gorgeous and just in the right place." It's specific. But what about the three jobs we might have to work to pay for it?

First, we want to be in the right frame of mind, and the right spiritual place. Then we want to think about what we really need. We want to spend some time figuring out the need ... and how to express it clearly, concisely and specifically. Let's say we're asking for love ... how do we do that clearly, concisely, and specifically? We need a one-line statement.

"Powers that be, bring a romantic love that's right for me." Pretty good, but don't you want to be right for them too?

"Powers that be, I need a lover ... both of us right for each other." Well, you may be right for each other, but what about his wife? He may be already taken.

You all see what I'm saying here ... that you need to think it out very carefully, and express yourself clearly. After I spell out my request very carefully ... then I say ... "This, or something better, now manifest for me in totally satisfying and harmonious ways, for the highest good of all concerned."

By saying that ... I'm covering all my bases as best I can. Or "With harm to none and for the good of all, so mote it be."

So now we've covered step one ... and figured out just what we're asking for. Now we research. What do we need to know before we cast the spell? Timing ... Moon Phase ... Correspondences ... Tools ... the right Deity to call on.

What happens if ... I need to cast a spell really badly ... I NEED help with something ... but it's the wrong Moon, wrong day, wrong time ... What do I do now? If we can, we want to use all the little helpers we can find ... but if we can't ... we trust in our intent, our need, and the Universe, and do it anyway.

So we've figured out timing ... we have our Deity ... what else do we need to prepare? Our tools, our altar, ourselves. The reason you use tools is to trigger your own power ... so you want to use things that make sense to you.

Do you always need to be in circle to spellcast? Depends on who you ask. I use Circle to get the right feeling ... to offer respect ... to "feel" sacred ... but I honestly believe that this whole Earth is sacred already ... that I'm always in Her presence ... that I'm ALWAYS in sacred space. But when you're first learning the Craft ... I also believe you should learn to use Circle effectively, and then decide for yourself when or if you no longer need it. The thing is, you should really ask your own heart ... What makes sense to me? What feels right? Then do that. The more you work, the more you connect with Deity, and the less you need the tools to help you.

What things do we need to think about when we actually write the spell? We want something we can remember ... it's hard to have to stop and read every two seconds. Rhyme is easier to remember ... and it's energy building.

When we get ready to do our spell, we need to raise energy. What are some ways we can do that? Music, drums, chant, dance, clap your hands, sing ... all great ways. You want to see the energy building in your mind, and feel it ... breathe it in and out. Of course, some people are unable to dance, run, etc., just the act of lighting candles is an act of energy. Snapping your
fingers rhythmically can raise energy.

If you are working with a group, holding hands and "passing" energy to one another is good. If you're working with an intimate partner, you can use sex magick. There are lots of alternatives available ... you should think about what makes most sense to you, what fits your abilities and environment, and what fits the spell.

So you've chosen a time and place, figured out your intent carefully, written the spell, collected the supplies, researched everything ... you're ready to "just do it." Doesn't sound so complicated or scary, does it?

Then after it's done, you "act in accord." You don't act in a way the contradicts the spell you just cast ... you act as if your request has already been positively answered.

And just remember ... the Goddess is on your side. What more do you need?

                                 Types of Magick


                                                                                         The magick most notably known

 Sympathetic Magick

Sympathetic magick is a so called "primitive" form of magick which follows the idea that if something looks like something else, it has a "magickal link" with it. In addition, if something comes from something else it retains a "magickal link" with it.

The practice of sympathetic magick involves the enacting of symbolic or real acts on the object which has a magickal link with the desired target of the acts. This includes, but is not exclusive to, fetishes and "voodoo dolls" which are, incidentally, used in both love and hate magick. An element of sympathetic magick may be useful in any physical "results magick" since it creates a stronger link between the ritual and the desired result.It is also seen in poppets. and some forms of candle magick

Enochian Magick- AKA  Angelic Magick


Angel Comments

 Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn ® - Introduction to Enochian


In the year of 1581 through the extraordinary efforts of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly, the secrets that were lost with the patriarch of the Bible known as Enoch were returned to those who thirst for the knowledge of Light. Dee kept close records of their intensive work. Although some of Dee's work has been lost, much of it is to be found in Sloane Documents 3188, 3189, 3191, 3677, and 3679. These documents are to be found at the British Museum in London.

One of the most important breakthroughs in the rediscovery of these lost secrets was an entirely new language. This language contained its own grammar and syntax. It is an Angelic language often referred to as "Enochian."

Dee and Kelly used great care and effort when receiving the lost knowledge of Enoch. The dictating Angel was the Great Angel Ave. Many hours were spent bringing forth the information by Dee and Kelly. Often times sessions would last 8 to 10 hours a day. Some of the material was actually dictated backwards by the Angel so as not to invoke dangerous forces of power.

The beginnings of Enochian Magic were coming into place, but the information was just information. It was not a system of any usable value. Thus, for the most part, it remained dormant, undefined and unusable. Then, over 200 years later, this body of raw knowledge that Dee & Kelly painstakingly uncovered was given form and life by the genius of S.L. MacGregor Mathers. Under the tutelage of Mathers, the Second (Inner) Order of the Golden Dawn began working the most powerful system of magic the world has or may ever see.

Years later in Chicago, a disgruntled Paul Foster Case (after being expelled from the order by Moina Mathers) ,would lead a quiet crusade to convince fellow students that Enochian Magic was "volatile and dangerous." Case would even go so far as to have it sliced and diced out of all Inner Order Teachings of a group he founded called the "Builders of the Adytum." Others would follow in Case's footsteps, claiming Enochian was too dangerous.

Without entering into the debate on the "dangers" of Enochian Magic, when used with caution and in accordance with Second Order Teachings, it is not only safe, it is utterly effective in the physical world, and illuminating in the area of Spiritual development!

Dee and Kelly were the pioneers who blazed the trail. Along the trail of forgotten and lost knowledge were the Four Watchtowers of the Universe. These Watchtower Tablets were adapted by Mathers to represent the Four Elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

There is a definite hierarchy to each of these tablets. The hierarchy in its highest form is not to be found on the Tablets, but comes from the study of the Qabalah. It is the Divine Name of the Element in Hebrew that first must be intoned and invoked. The reason is that the Hebrew represents the Celestial influence and governance and the Enochian hierarchy represents the Assiac or material governance.

In each tablet there are three Secret Holy Names of God which are extracted from the horizontal cross bar of the central cross of each Tablet. In all there are twelve Holy Names on four Tablets which infer a serious connection and bridge between the Macrocosm and the personal Microcosm of one's own "sphere of sensation."

These Names are invoked during the four Elemental Grade Ceremonies (initiations) by the Hierophant of the Golden Dawn in the Outer. Through the power of the Secret Names the general nature of the element involved in the initiation is filtered through the Tablet into the "Aura" or sphere of sensation of the advancing candidate. The result is the establishment of a magical link and affinity with the element of the Initiation. This serves to empower the candidate in that new elemental powers are now available to him or her.

This process depends on a trained and empowered Hierophant, and can, in fact, be performed in full Temple "astrally" to allow the elemental link to exist for members who live hundreds or even thousands of miles from a Temple.


The Elemental King is extracted from a spiral whirl around the Central Cross to be found on each Tablet. There is one King per Elemental Tablet.

When the Adept invokes the three Secret Holy Names of God, the King is also automatically activated. In addition, the King may be invoked as a specific force.

The King is always invoked when lower elemental forces on the Tablet are to be utilized.


There are six Seniors on each of the Four elemental Tablets. This makes a total of 24 Seniors in all. The Seniors follow the King in the Order of Hierarchy. The Seniors are found in the Book of Revelations as the 24 Elders who bow down before the Throne of God.

The Seniors act as a kind of funnel for the specific forces of a particular planet. The King relates to Sol. The planetary forces of the Seniors is configured and transformed within the specific elemental Nature of the Tablets.

In all workings where the King is invoked, so are the Seniors in that

they work in a kind of collaboration with the elemental King. There are rituals such as the Consecration of an Elemental Tool when the power of the Seniors are called upon. This allows the elemental Weapon to receive in the charging phase the Planetary powers through the elemental nature of the planet. Later when needed by a trained Adept, the tool can then project this force for the purpose of magical and alchemical workings.



There are four Sephirotic Crosses on each Tablet. They are often referred to as Calvary Crosses. There is one cross in each sub-element.

Thus, on the Fire Tablet, there are four sub-elements of Air, Water, Fire, Earth. There is a cross in each. On a colored depiction of the Tablets these crosses are white, which like the Seniors denote a spiritual nature rather than an elemental one.

There are two angels per cross. One calls forth a serviant angel and the other is used to command the angel. These angels are only invoked when the Adept wishes to work with a specific subservient angel.


These angels work under the Angels of the Sephirotic Cross. These Angels help to regulate and balance the forces employed. They may be utilized for pyramid working and other important elemental considerations.

The Kerubic Angels are formed from the first letter in each file above the Calvary Cross and are permutated to provide (4) in total per sub-section.


The highest name of Spirit in this Tablet is EHNB. This is the purest Spiritual force and is only invoked when some empowering is required from the direct force of spirit.

The Tablet of Union is placed on the center Altar to act as the central hub from which the Elemental Tablets are spokes.

The Elemental Tablets are introduced one at a time in the Grade Initiations of the Golden Dawn. There is an important Initiation that is not depicted on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. It is the Portal Initiation. It is attributed to the top point of the pentagram which is Spirit. Thus, in the Portal Initiation of our Order, the Tablet of Union is introduced as it represents the building Spirit or actuating glue between the elements.


This only reveals a miniscule amount of information on Enochian Golden Dawn methodology. In fact, much of the body of the Second Order Enochian Work remains unpublished and safely in the hands of the College of Adepti.

Enochian Magic requires a solid and firm foundation in the study of the Qabalah, Geomancy, Tarot, Alchemy, and Astrology. It is not a toy but a powerful system that should be employed with the same caution a prudent person uses who would handle a loaded gun.

The above information is only a tiny fragment of Enochian knowledge. It is not complete, but rather given for the purpose of general understanding. It is vital that to fully actualize Enochian forces and powers, one must transform through Outer Order Grade Initations and beyond. There are some very good books on Enochian out on the market. However, some are extremely incomplete and over-simplified so a to attract more readers and sell more books. These books (many crammed with faulty information) are extremely dangerous in the hands of the novice. If not dangerous, then completely ineffective.

Voodoo Magick


Voodoo altar



Voodoo (or voudon) is set of magical beliefs and practices, followed in some parts of Africa, South America, and the West Indies, especially Haiti. The word "vodoun" derives from vodu, meaning "spirit" or "deity" in the Fon language of Dahomey, now part of Nigeria. It arose in the 17th century on slave plantations in America as a combination of Roman Catholicism and West African religious traditions; believers retain membership in the Roman Catholic church. Beliefs include the existence of loa or spirits, some of whose identities mesh with those of Christian saints. The loa are invoked by the priest (houngan) or priestess (mambo) at ceremonies, during which members of the congregation become possessed by the spirits and go into a trance. A voodoo temple (houmfort) has a central post from which the loa supposedly descend to "mount" the worshiper. The loa can be identified by the characteristic behavior of the possessed person. Because of its unique blend of French, Spanish and Indian cultures, New Orleans offered a perfect setting for the practice and growth of voodoo. Today, some say as much as 15 percent of the population of New Orleans still practices voodoo. Modern voodoo has evolved in many ways, including spiritualist reverends and mothers, who have their own churches and support a drugstore cult that involves the sale of potions.

There are two primary sorts of voodoo. Rada is a family spirit voodoo and the voodoo of the relatively peaceful and happy loa. Petro (in some areas called Congo) is a black magic voodoo and the voodoo of angry, mean and nasty loa or spirit. Dangerous things happen in petro including death curses and the making of zombies. Zombies are created by a black magician in voodoo, called a bokor who puts a poison on the skin of the victim. No one knows exactly what the components of the poison are, but it is thought to contain substances from various toxic animals and plants, including the gland secretions of the bouga toad, millipedes and tarantulas, the skins of poisonous tree frogs, seeds and leaves from poisonous plants, human remains, and four types of puffer fish, which contain tetrodotoxin, one of the most poisonous substances in the world. After administration, the victim becomes completely paralyzed and falls into a coma. A gris-gris can be a voodoo charm, spell or hex used to cause certain events to occur (good or bad); also used for protection from evil or to ensure good luck. Though most people think of sticking pins in the voodoo dolls to invoke some kind of curse on a person, many practitioners say the central aspect of voodoo is healing people from illness. They insist such healing activities probably constitute up to sixty percent of all voodoo activity.


In the early 1960s, a US Marine Colonel and his wife were stationed in Haiti.
On their return to the States in 1963 they wrote a book that criticized the regime of Papa Doc Duvalier.
A Haitian newspaper published an article saying that the Colonel and his wife had been ritually cursed by Voodoo priests.
The first draft of the book was lost in the post to the publisher.
The second went to the wrong address.
The third could not be typed, the typewriter blocked.
Then the Colonel broke his leg. A journalist who was meant to interview him about the book was rushed to the hospital with grave appendicitis and could not make the appointment.
The Colonel was then attacked by a rabid dog.
Even so, the Colonel and his wife planned a holiday to Haiti.
He died from an unexpected heart attack before being able to travel.
The Voodoo curse had achieved its object.


Also many Voodoo practioners   are very low key about it, atleast up north  here in Ohio.

NOTE: Remember that voodoo is not a fairy tale. I want to make it perfectly clear, that before you attempt any  voodoo spells or tricks on anyone, think twice. Infact Magick no matter what type is serious business it is not a game or toy.

Santeríasăn′tərē'ə, sän′–, religion originating in W Africa, developed by Yoruba slaves in Cuba, and practiced by an estimated one million people in the United States. Blending African beliefs with those of Roman Catholicism, it fuses Christian saints with African deities (orishas). Rites are led by a priest or priestess, and reincarnation is a main belief. One of its most important rituals involves animal sacrifice, which was ruled a constitutional religious practice in a 1993 Supreme Court decision.
Wikipedia search results for: Santería
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Santería is a syncretic religion of Caribbean origin, also known as Regla de Ocha, La Regla Lucumi, or Lukumi. LUCUMI REL'GION New Orleans Mistic. Retrieved on 4 January 2009. The word "santería", often used by colonial Europeans to describe the religion of Africans whose origins are Yoruba, can be loosely translated from Spanish as the "Way of the Saints". The Africans, however, called themselves: "O lukumi" or "my friend". This term may have emerged from the consolidation of African beliefs and culture under the banner of a colonizing country, in this case, Spain. It formed the basis for a new "people",

When African slaves were imported to America, they were taught Christianity, but some people continued to hold their traditional beliefs. The result was a blending of traditional West African beliefs with Christianity. Today, many Afro-American folk religions continue to be practiced in the Caribbean, particularly among the poor and less educated people. They include Voodoo in Haiti, Santeria in Cuba, Shango in Trinidad, and Kuminia or Pocomania in Jamaica.

The Afro-American folk religions emphasize magical practices designed to bring good luck to their devotees or harm to their enemies. Ceremonies often include the ritual sacrifice of animals. The religions worship the spirits of the dead, but the spirits given the names of Christian saints. This blending of beliefs allowed the Africans to retain their native faith while appearing to convert to Christianity.

The folk religions also provide an additional function, particularly in the remote sections of Haiti. Many practitioners of the religions are able to use tropical plants to relieve pain and cure illnesses. This is the only medical care available to some people.

Many people of the Caribbean profess to be Christians, but feel comfortable with the rituals of the folk religions. In 1998, Pope John Paul II visited Cuba, where he urged Catholics to reject the practice of Santeria. In addition to the Caribbean, the folk religions are also practiced in American cities with large Caribbean populations. They include New Orleans, Miami, New York City, and Los Angeles.

There are many many forms of Magick. Each culture also has their own form  of magick as well.

 Chaos Magick


All great thinWitchy Commentsgs must first wear a terrifying and monsterous mask, in order to inscribe themselves on the hearts of humanity.""

-- Fredrick Nietzsche

The words "Chaos Magic" reverberate with mystery and intrigue. It's rather safe to assume that this was intentional on the part of those who originally coined the term. Of course, when Gerald Gardener came up with his reconstruction of European Paganism in the 1950's and called it "witchcraft," he must have been equally well aware of the effect that that term would have on his contemporaries. There's nothing like a touch of the "forbidden" if you want to intrigue people.

The label of "Chaos Magic" suffers from two inherent drawbacks. First, the "cyberpunk" connotations of the term tend to attract some of those misanthropic types who were previously attracted to the label "Satanist" for similar reasons. They see it as some kind of "Satanism Lite," as it were. This subclass of human used to use the term "witch" or "warlock" to describe themselves before the term "Chaos Magic" came into vogue, and "Chaos Magician" sounds so much cooler. Those who once might have painted upside-down pentagrams on their black leather jackets and called themselves "warlocks" have now switched to eight-rayed stars and are calling themselves "Chaos Magicians" instead. So instead of embarassing the witches or the Satanists anymore, they've taken to embarassing the Chaotes instead.

The second (and more important) drawback is that the very idea of Chaos Magic inherently defies description. It is highly personal and experimental by its nature. Even those who claim to practice it are hard-pressed to define what it is , outside of their own personal version. But neither is it simply "eclectic witchcraft", though it's methods certainly are eclectic. It can only be defined by certain commonalities of thought among those who claim to practice it, and even among some who thought they were just "doing their own thing" and never knew it had a name.

No Holds Barred Magic

Chaos Magic is dangerous, awesome, full of potential and therefore highly compelling. It is "no-holds-barred magic". The rule is that there are no rules, besides learning what works for you and using it to accomplish your will, while avoiding getting stuck in rut of doing everything the same way all of the time.

In the menace and fascination of the very concept of "chaos" lies the power of Chaos Magic. There is no way to accurately describe Chaos Magic, any more than one can accurately describe the Tao. "That which can be described is not the sacred Tao", as the old sage said. In a way, I suppose that the Chaos Magicians are the ultimate "secret society," though it is inherent in Chaos Magic itself, rather than needing to be enforced by oath or decree.

So why is it called Chaos Magic?

It is called "magic" since, like all other forms of Art of the Mages, it seeks to affect the course of events by non-normal means. Action at a distance. Events that defie logical causality. Altered states of consciousness. Arcane knowledge. Power. Ecstacy.

But what makes it Chaos Magic? (Or "magick" -- choose your spelling to taste.) While it may be impossible to describe directly, I can offer a few opinions on drawing the distinction.

One could begin by saying among Chaos Magicians there is the underlying assumption of the "random" and relativistic nature of life, the universe and everything. Reality is stochastic in nature, which is to say that each intelligent entity "creates" reality by their interaction and participation in it. We are adrift in a quantum world of uncertainty. Existance can not be completely described by either religion or it's philosophical successor, science.

Chaos Mathematics shows us that what seems random is in fact chaotic and has a higher "order" that can be perceived only from a great enough perspective. Chaos gives rise to reality itself. It might also give rise to the tendency for matter to accrue form and perhaps even intelligence.

Strange Attractors

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word "chaos" is Greek in origin. Its original meaning was: "a vast gulf or chasm; the neither abyss, empty space, infinite darkness, the first state of the universe." In English, this was refined to mean "the formless void of primordial matter, the 'great deep' or 'abyss' out of which the cosmos or structure of the universe was evolved." The popular modern interpretation of the word as being a synonym for "disorder" is a recent and somewhat misleading development. Both order and disorder are themselves manifestations of the Primal Chaos. The original meaning had more in common with what the Eastern mystics call the Tao. I think this is not at all accidental.

So we Chaosists call this primal connectivity "Chaos" instead of "God" or some other traditional name to remove any anthropomorphic ideas from something that is so totally un-human as to defy comprehension -- at least by intellectual means.

Another reason behind the name is that many of the concepts of modern Chaos Theory can be given metaphysical interpretation. For example, it's obvious that various occult systems have many factors in common. In Chaos Theory, there is something called a "strange attractor," a certain type of coherency that arises in any turbulent system. Mathematically speaking, it merely represents certain ranges of numbers that tend to fall into a recycling set of infinitely regressive values when certain formulae are applied. As it is usually visualized, it's a three dimensional graph (two spatial axes representing the complex plane, plus one color axis) of the value of the iterated function fc(z) = z^2+c, where z and c are complex. This yields the now-famous Mandelbrot set of images.

What makes it more than a mere arithmetic game is that when computers are allowed to crank endlessly through the calculations, certain geometric patterns emerge that bear a striking resemblence to our perceptions of various real world phenomena. Zooming in on particular areas of the complex plane, many fascinating visual characteristics are generated, with similarities to the apprearence of such things as swirling water and rugged coastlines. Therefore it can be used as tool to make predictions (in this case, how turbulent systems will behave), which elevates it to the realm of science -- where it is properly referred to as Non-Linear Dynamics.

A good example of a strange attractor in the physical world is a vortex; given the right conditions, it will arise in air currents, running water, dust storms -- anything from the Great Red Spot of Jupiter to the whirlpool in your bathtub drain. But regardless of the medium, a vortex will always assume a similar pattern.

To apply this concept to the occult, assume any given magical "system" is the medium in which certain patterns (practices, concepts, formulae, etc. ) will emerge -- strange attractors -- that will be strikingly similar to each other.

In magical terms, a strange attractor would be, say, astral projection, or energy centers aligned along the spinal column. Or the interaction with non-corpreal intelligences (gods, demons, spirits, etc.) A kind of pattern that always seems to arise regardless of the particular belief-set that goes along with the actual techniques. Within them all lay the "strange attractors" that can be harvested from the morass of archaic symbolism and put to use by the canny magician.

Chaos Magick had its inception in the late 1970s when Pete Carroll began to meld together elements of Golden Dawn ceremonial magick, Thelema, Taoism and Tibetan Buddhism in his articles for the magickal journal, The New Equinox. The inspiration for this synthesis was the work of the obscure, early twentieth-century artist and sorcerer Austin Osman Spare. Spare had developed what he called the technique of 'sentient letters'. Pete Carroll reformed the technique, and the sentient letters were recast as 'sigils'; they became the basis of a system which aimed to generate results through the application of undogmatic magickal technique.


Results are what count. Try something. If it works, try it again to verify. Continue to practice the technique until you perfect it. If the technique doesn't work for you, drop it and try something else. Explore - and don't accept as truth anything you haven't experimented with yourself; you are your own laboratory. "Everything else is mysticism," according to Pete Carroll. Phil Hine is a little more elaborate: "Rather than trying to recover and maintain a tradition that links back to the past (and former glory), Chaos Magick is an approach that enables the individual to use anything that s/he thinks is suitable as a temporary belief or symbol system. What matters is the results you get, not the 'authenticity' of the system used."


Theoretically, Chaos Magick is a meta-belief - beyond belief, a system without a philosophy, or a system that can contain all philosophies. Yet, there is very definitely a Chaos Magick 'vibe'. It is not only a magickal practice, but also a magickal (anti-)philosophy. Just focus on the word 'Chaos'. What does it mean to you? Flux, constant change, anarchism? A fractal understanding of a mathematical universe? A discordian object of (mis-)worship? The word is important, regardless of its 'true' meaning. Its cultural baggage imparts a nihilistic, post-modern, anarchistic flavour to much Chaos Magick speculation. Insures very Nietzschean stuff be goin' down: God is dead. Laugh, for we have killed him. Since life is meaningless, be the artist of your own destiny. Create your own meaning, rather than be enslaved or conditioned by anyone else's. If nothing is true, then everything is permitted.

Magickal Model

There is an understanding in Chaos Magick that life is magickal. It may be magickal in a nihilistic, incomprehensible way but it is still magickal, and not just subject to the laws and assumptions of Newtonian science. Chaos Magick is the magick of the quantum century: where energy and matter intersect and transmute into the other.

Most chaotes recognise three basis models of magick: the spirit, energy and psychological models. Recently, a number of leading-edge chaotes have begun to integrate the magickal models of other eras into a new model: the Cybernetic model. In this model, the Universe is perceived as a system of living information. Frater U.D can explain it better: "The application of the as yet evolving information model has led to the discipline I have termed Cybermagic ... . Contrary to the other models described above, Cybermagic does not rely on magical trance to achieve its effects. Rather, the Cybermagician activates either his own main memory banks, namely brain and spine (the Golf-club chakra, so-called because of its shape reminiscent of a golf-club) or those of the target person. The desired information is then called up and transmitted quite similarly to a copy command on an MS-DOS computer. The copy command analogy holds good insofar as the information (not having mass) is not actually 'lost' in the process (as energy would be) but rather is duplicated." (from the Chaos Matrix Website, hosted by Fenwick)


Yet all of the above is just words unless one experiences Gnosis: any altered state of consciousness in which one eclipses the monkey-mind, and achieves an expanded sense of self and the universe. Chaos Magick is famed for encouraging the attainment of the state of Gnosis through extreme, exhibitionary methods (drugs, sex and rock 'n' roll: nothing succeeds like excess), but because of the influence of both Taoism and Tibetan Tantra on its originators, there is also a strong proclivity toward inhibitionary paths to Gnosis: sitting meditation, pranayama, etc. What is important is that you use Gnosis as more than a means of spiritual dandyism. Use the insights gained in a Gnostic state to engage in emotional engineering, or to help undermine the collective consensus in preparation for the coming of the New Aeon, or just to have more fun than you've had before. Strive for enlightenment if that's what will wet your pants. Engage fully and without regret in the ongoing, initiatory process of life.
Be nice and smooth.

 pentacle THE PENTACLE



I went to the web to look this up , I personal ly would not myself  choose this type of path however ,it is interesting to read and again  there are different types of satanists just as they are different types of vampirism and paganism there are many paths. It is interesting to  for many their high holy day is Oct 31 Samhain. In  here is also Satanic feminism have not read that yet.

 Obviously Mystic likes to read about all kinds of stuff

I just remebered one of the HPS in the tradition I was in who now is not there herself She  her family  grew up in the satanic  path she did share soemthings as well it was like wow

Again to our new sisters esp new on the path do understand satanism is not the same as

 witchcraft Athough they do practice magick, and rituals, it is not witchcraft.

It is interesting to look at different pagans and occult paths.



The Nine Satanic Statements

from The Satanic Bible, ©1969

by Anton Szandor LaVey



1. Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!

2. Satan represents vital existence instead of spiritual pipe dreams!

3. Satan represents undefiled wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit!

4. Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it instead of love wasted on ingrates!

5. Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek!

6. Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires!

7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all!

8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!


9. Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years!
