I’m not a girl in her early twenties I’m actually an old man with a beard holding a giant card with a triangle on it

I thought you were an old man with a hood and lantern?

Variantly yes. I am an extremely wizened philosopher in sandals making very Platonic gestures. I am not, by any means, young or female

Gender is pretty irrelevant to spiritual progress anyways tho

"When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner as the outer, and the upper as the lower, and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male shall not be male, and the female shall not be female: … then you will enter [the kingdom]."
— Jesus, Gnostic Gospel of Thomas

"The soul is beyond male and female as it is beyond life and death."
— Aleister Crowley

Solomon represents a new kind of human being — a person who
has broken free of the old ways of looking at God and our place in
creation — a person whose consciousness has expanded beyond the
prison universe of good gods and evil devils — a person who grasps
the concept of a supreme consciousness so absolute that all forces
and powers of creation (even those that to others appear evil and
destructive) are pressed into service of the ‘Great G’ Goodness.

A true “Solomon” confidently knows his or her place in this new
understanding of the divine scheme of things. A true Solomon is
a proactive full citizen of both heaven and hell. A true Solomon is,
in fact, encouraged by the Great G God Almighty to conjure the
devils and put them to work doing good things!

Are you confused? Don’t be. You’ve just learned a fundamental
secret of magick, and if you can free yourself from the old Chrislemew
way of looking at things, you are well on the way to becoming
a true Solomon yourself.

when you have roommates, trying to be as normal as possible is inconvenient and exhausting.

I just sit here zoned into my computer while people yap and walk around back and forth. Never a dull moment. Someone even said (apparently thinking I couldn’t hear them) that I was just “part of the house”. So, I guess I’ve been reduced to a piece of furniture. Someone did defend me, though, saying, “don’t discredit Landon.” I was here long ago before everyone else, then left. I come back to a nerd commune. I’m probably the quietest, calmest person here, so I might as well just be a living statue.

The Kamea

Over the next few weeks — now that they’re finally done — I’m going to be uploading the kamea of the seven planets, and their two principal sigils (proofing them has been a bit of a nightmare, frankly; and if you find a mistake, please let me know).  These are newly assembled.

I’m choosing to begin with Mercury.

Mercury

Mercury is the swiftest planet.  In the old Ptolemaic cosmos, it was next out from earth after the Moon; in modern cosmology, it is the second planet out from the Sun.  The ancients identified its close relationship with the Sun, noting that he was never far from the greater light, and that it took keen vision and determination to separate Mercury out from the light of the Sun.  

Mercury’s number is eight.  Hence, his square has eight columns of eight rows.  His sigil suggests the doubled-square, and four spheres (coins or disks or spheres? It’s hard to say.)  Its shorthand or astrological sign suggests the caduceus, the staff of intertwined snakes.  His color is orange (and why I wear an orange tie on Wednesdays, his day).  The sigil can be used for generating passwords, sigils, and other symbolism.

Mercury’s “portfolio” has to do with business, communication, symbols, language, journeys, travel, science, alchemy, trade, thievery, and all such similar aspects.  (Jason Miller has said that if Jupiter is like a savings account in financial matters {growth of wealth}, Mercury is like a checking account {assurance of quality cash flow}.)  Light and quick and fleet of feet, he is associated with Raphael (in some Judeo-Christian systems of magic; others associate Mercury with Gabriel or with Michael), with the planet Mercury, and with the sphere of Hod on the Tree of Life.  In metals, he is usually identified with quicksilver (Hg on the periodic table), but also with mixed metals, i.e., bronze and brass and other alloys.  When burning incense or in practice of vegetable alchemy, I associate him with lavender.

I’m currently staying at my friend Ricky’s house, and since I’ve been gone for a year things have changed quite a lot. He now has several people who hang out here all the time; two of them living here.

This house has been dubbed “House Chan”, some kind of inside joke I’m not aware of yet, and because I just sit here all the time blogging, reading and listening to music I have been dubbed Wise Elder of House Chan, or High Priest of House Chan.

I lived here in 08, so I’m literally the “elder” tenant here. Everyone is very chatty and affectionate, but I’m just in my little bubble. Things get pretty loud, and a few can be a bit obnoxious, but it’s entertaining. This is definitely no environment for study or devotionals. Definitely need to find quieter lodging ASAP.

The consequence of having seen God is madness, not in the sense that one becomes mentally ill, no, but that a kind of madness is set between you and others: people cannot nor will not understand you.

The Hermit by RalphHorsley

Secret? There is no secret. Anyone with eyes can see the way to live… By watching life, observing nature, and cooperating with it. Making common cause with the process of existence… By living life for itself, don’t you see? Deriving pleasure from the gift of pure being… Life is its own answer. Accept it and enjoy it day by day. Live as well as possible. Expect no more. Destroy nothing, humble nothing, look for fault in nothing. Leave unsullied and untouched all that is beautiful. Hold that which lives in all reverence. For life is given by the sovereign of our universe; given to be savored, to be luxuriated in, to be respected. But that’s no secret. You’re intelligent. You know as well as I what has to be done.
