36 FACES The History, Astrology and Magic of the Decans by Austin Coppock (Special X Series Hardcover Limited Edition in Custom Slipcase)

There is a thread that runs through over four millennia of astrological and magical history, a cord that binds ancient Egypt with the Hellenistic world, the Arabian empire, India, the European Renaissance and even touches the present. That thread is the Decans, a division of the earth’s sky into 36 sections. These 36 ‘Faces of Heaven’ are more than just a curious footnote in the history of archaeo-astronomy. First emerging in ancient Egypt, they have moved with the corpus of Hermetic material, reincarnating in the starry wisdom of culture after culture.

This is the first time they have been bound into one volume.

 

VIA TORTUOSA: An Exposition on Crooked Path Sorcery by Daniel Schulke (SPECIAL Deluxe Leather Bound Limited Edition Hardcover in Custom Slipcase) Import

 

Special deluxe leather bound edition of only 19 copies this being number 16, with marbled endpapers, silk sewn in ribbon marker housed in custom slipcase.

Book is in new unread condition.

‘Crooked Path Sorcery’ is a term originating within the Cultus Sabbati, particularly within the ritual corpus of the Draconist, used to describe the antinomian and oppositional nature of its quintessence. This sorcerous ethos is extrapolated in such Cultus works as Qutub, The Dragon-Book of Essex, and Lux Haeresis, but its roots in fact are older, animating many historical strands of sorcery. Particularly relevant to witchcraft ritual and the perception-distorting powers of the Witches’ Sabbat, the book places especial emphasis on the ‘crooked’ figure of the witch and her Art, examining historical instances and their dispersion into the modern occult workings of the Sabbatic Current. Through the devices of magical analysis, exhortation and homily, the essence of the Crooked Path and its associated byways are directly explored, illuminating the mystical convolutions of the Arcanum.

Published by Xoanon

Let not the Eye of the Seer be divided from the Body Entire. Even in stasis so-call’d, image-revelation is kinesthetic, for the motions of the Beholding Eye are driven by the contours of signacula comprising the image in totality, and which first arose from the dancing Hand of the Divine Artist. Thus, in Beholding, the flesh of all Image is venerated by phantom-touch; caressed, as it were, by the Eye, in adoration …thus the Beloved becomes the Witching Apple.

Also referenced among the collection are materials relating to A.:.A.:. of Aleister Crowley.

It will be of interest to students of witchcraft, Freemasonry, the Goetia, sex magic, and early twentieth century occultism. The Reliquary presents for the first time a selection of these magical images, many reproduced at full scale, and bound with the highest quality materials. Printed in large-format on archival paper.

Description

The transgressive cultus of the wild, blood-thirsty and demon-slaying Matrikas (“little Mothers”) is amongst the most fascinating but least treated areas of South Asian spirituality and magic. Exploring the rich history of the Matrika Cult as well as the tantric background in which it has survived, Ferocious takes the reader deep into initiatic terrain. The goddesses are examined as a group followed by chapters for each individual Matrika, elaborating Her unique origins, iconography and mantras. An appendix offers a full treatise on an eighth Matrika sometimes worshipped with the other seven.

OF COSMOGONIC EROS by Ludwig Klages (Limited Edition Hardcover) Import

Description

Theion Publishing is proud to release the first-ever English translation of one of the most important metaphysical works of the 20th century: Of Cosmogonic Eros by the German visionary Ludwig Klages. This monograph is dedicated entirely to an in-depth examination of the mysteries of Eros and the most powerful forms of ecstasy. Here Klages presents a pandaemonic vision of becoming which is inextricably linked to an Eros whose elemental power shatters everyday consciousness and mates the individual to the secrets of the cosmos. The author seeks to restore Eros to his true status and function by carefully distilling his essence against all falsifications and distortions. Showing how Eros is related to Thanatos and integral to every true cultus of the dead and ancestral worship, Klages leaves no doubt that only the Eroto-Gnostic holds the keys to authentic Life and the daemonic empowerment of the Cosmos.

 

THE FACELESS GOD by Dr. Tomas Vincente (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 700 hand bound limited edition hardcover.

Introduction by David Beth, Artwork by Mitchell Nolte, Complete with ritual instructions

This book of Left Hand Path theory and practice has been eagerly awaited since the first news about its coming-into-being was announced last year. We are certain that Dr. Vincente’s tome will meet the highest expectations and demands of all serious practitioners of the magical Art.

 

CHTHONIC GNOSIS: Ludwig Klages and his Quest for the Pandaemonic All by Dr. Gunnar Alksnis (Limited Edition Hardcover)

One of only 720 copies bound in Telluric Brown fine cloth.

This groundbreaking release is the first authoritative work on Ludwig Klages and his pagan metaphysics ever to be published in English. Without a doubt Klages is one of the most intriguing and enigmatic pagan thinkers of the early 20th Century. A figure of great controversy he radically rejected Christianity and Monotheism in favor of a pan-daemonic paganism. Advocating the return to primordial states of consciousness through magico-erotic encounters with the living powers of the ensouled cosmos, Klages was a driving force in the notorious Cosmic Circle of German mystics. Masterfully expounding his vision of daemonic Life in disciplines as diverse as philosophy, poetry, metaphysics, psychology and graphology, he influenced many important contemporaries such as Hermann Hesse, Walter Benjamin and the Frankfurt School, C.G. Jung, Martin Heidegger and others. The work of esoteric teachers such as Lama Anagarika Govinda, Michael Bertiaux and David Beth has been deeply inspired by the magical antinomian biocentrism of Klages. Misinterpreted, vilified and slandered, this great heretic and ‘high priest of the irrational’ remains virtually unknown in the English speaking world although his work may have never been more relevant.
