Aliens 2019

News today that not one but two Earth-like exoplanets have been discovered orbiting a star just over twelve light years away. The star in question, “Teegarden’s Star,” is a red-dwarf, whose small size and apparent dimness meant that it was not easy to detect: it was in fact only discovered itself in 2003. Hence for all astronomers know, there could very well be many more stars, even relatively close to Earth, “patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

Given its distance from Earth, if our interstellar brethren are listening to our broadcasts, they will think we are still listening to The Kooks, Nelly Furtado and Razorlight, George W Bush is President of the USA, Tony Blair is Prime Minister of the UK, and the world waits with baited breath to see if The Davinci Code really did plagiarize The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. More importantly, to communicate with these planets, it would take 25 years to send and receive messages by conventional means…

… However: you can do so instantaneously using the magic of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn! Yes, using principles I outlined in a blog post entitled “Aliens and the Golden Dawn,” it is theoretically possible to astrally project to distant stars and the planets which orbit them using GD methods. The relevant data which would enable us to do so is that Teegarden’s Star can be located astronomically in Aries, at 2h 53m RA (compare this to Regulus, Alpha Leonis, which is 10h 8m RA) and +16º 53′ Declination, which puts it just above the line of the Ecliptic.

It is therefore possible to calculate where it would lie in relation to MacGregor Mathers’ version of sidereal astrology, and the corresponding Tarot card:

Name / Designation Distance (light years) Constellation Tarot-card
(Astronomic) (Mathers / Sidereal)
Teegarden’s Star 12.5 Aries 11º 9′ 38″ Aries Queen of Wands

The Queen of Wands from the Robert Wang Golden Dawn deck.

Hence: it ought to be possible to astrally project to the Queen of Wands after having formulated the Tree of Life Projected In A Sphere, and ask her to conduct us to the planets orbiting Teegarden’s Star to find out what life is really like there.

If there are any magicians who would like to give this a go, why not post your findings as comments to this post? 🙂

Review: “Golden Dawn Magic: A Complete Guide to the High Magical Arts” by Chic & Tabatha Cicero

Golden Dawn Magic: A Complete Guide to the High Magical Arts

The new book by Chic & Tabatha Cicero, “Golden Dawn Magic: A Complete Guide to the High Magical Arts,” is an introduction to the practices of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn: its unique selling point is that it goes into slightly more depth than other such introductory guides. So for example, it does not simply describe the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, or the Middle Pillar Ritual, but outlines preliminary exercises of which a practioner could make use in order to get used to those rituals beforehand.

Moreover, advanced techniques such as god-form assumption, tarot divination, etc are mentioned, and the results are combined to show a Golden Dawn magician would formulate a complete “Z2” Magic of Light Ritual.

It is probably most helpful to think of this as a companion volume to the Ciceros’ “The Essential Golden Dawn,” the difference being that the former book outlines the theory, whilst the latter the practice. Nevertheless, it is at the end of the day only an introduction, and as such the authors continually refer to their other publications as shedding more light on the subject, for example: Self Initiation into the Golden Dawn; Tarot Talismans; as well as Israel Regardie’s The Golden Dawn itself.

From the original Equinox ceremony of the Golden Dawn.
