The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn has been considered one of the most important Western magical systems for over a century. Although much of their knowledge has been published, to really enter the system required initiation within a Golden Dawn temple — until now.
Regardless of your magical knowledge or background, you can learn and live the Golden Dawn tradition with the first practical guide to Golden Dawn initiation. Self-Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition by Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero offers self-paced instruction by two senior adepts of this magical order.

London: Starfire. This work consists of two novellas, both concerning the Voodoo Bultu, or Cult of the Spectral Hyena.

London: Fulgur Limited, 2012. Limited Edition 800 copies only. In premium cloth and custom black dust jacket, this volume will continue the theme of the previous works. In describing this work Orryelle says SOLVE dissolves the gold distilled in COAGULA, tears apart our egos, dismembers our bodies and hurls any conceptions of perfection back into the primal void. Herein lies death, destruction, and the Prima Materia, the base matter, the Al Khem‚ – the fertile black soil of decomposing forms, the compost for new growth. In an exploration of the Nigredo, or Blackening phase, of Alchemy, the concepts of Black Magic are re-examined in this ThanatErotic tome of the backward winding path; from the darkness of the womb to the darkness of the tomb. In preparing this dark vision, the artist has broken new ground with a series of extraordinary images executed on black paper. The entire book is printed in black, with highlights in silver, gold and red. 4to
Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization, where writing and the first cities developed in the 4th Millennium BCE, is also the birthplace of Western Magick. Known as the Art of Marduk to the Babylonians, Magick was used in the earliest historical records for protection, healing, to bind and control spirits, and to gain the favor of the gods. Despite its foundational importance, very few modern witches or magicians know much about the Mesopotamian origins of their art. Sumerian Exorcism, compiled by renowned occult scholar Michelle Belanger, aspires to reveal this long forgotten knowledge to the contemporary reader. Containing illustrative examples of ancient Mesopotamian spells, along with commentary and explanatory essays, this book explores the beliefs and practices at the very heart of modern Witchcraft, Demonology, and Ceremonial Magick. -Adam, Magus Arch Minion

"Tarot of the Morning Star" is not like other books on the tarot. Instead, it treats the Major Arcana as meditative tools for challenging and recreating oneself.
The first two pages of the introduction say more than most Tarot books manage to say in 200. Part one details Williamson's views on magical experiences, magical community, and the nature of magic. The part consists of full-color reproductions of Williamson's paintings of the Major Arcana. Each image is accompanied by a brief and thought-provoking commentary.
