Dawn got up
got dressed
decided on a cloak
the colour of strawberries
swept around the town

Underneath –
provocative
as ever
she left her negligee
damson shaded
apricot edged
studded with stars

Night…

Night is purer than day; it is better for thinking, loving and dreaming. At night everything is more intense, more true. The echo of words that have been spoken during the day takes on a new and deeper meaning.

Burning eye of a martyr…

February 20, 2015

Masc

A beautiful woman with a radiant smile upon her face, with abundant hair tied into a classical knot, on which white powder lay like a soft hoarfrost, was resting on an ottoman, supported on her left arm. She was nude in her dark furs. Her right hand played with a lash, while her bare foot rested carelessly on a man, lying before her like a slave, like a dog. In the sharply outlined, but well-formed linaments of this man lay brooding melancholy and passionate devotion; he looked up to her with the ecstatic burning eye of a martyr. This man, the footstool for her feet, was Severin, but beardless, and, it seemed, some ten years younger.

The Dead travel fast….

February 20, 2015

coffin

On the top of the tomb, seemingly driven through the solid marble — for the structure was composed of a few vast blocks of stone — was a great iron spike or stake. On going to the back I saw, graven in great Russian letters:

THE DEAD TRAVEL FAST.

There was something so weird and uncanny about the whole thing that it gave me a turn and made me feel quite faint. I began to wish, for the first time, that I had taken Johann’s advice. Here a thought struck me, which came under almost mysterious circumstances and with a terrible shock. This was Walpurgis Night!

Walpurgis Night, when, according to the belief of millions of people, the devil was abroad — when the graves were opened and the dead came forth and walked. When evil things of earth and air and water held revel. This very place the driver had specially shunned. This was the depopulated village of centuries ago. This was where the suicide lay; and this was the place where I was alone — unmanned, shivering with cold in a shroud of snow with a wild storm gathering again upon me! It took all my philosophy, all the religion I had been taught, all my courage, not to collapse in a paroxysm of fright.

A Coven And How To Form One

February 20, 2015

As regards environment, whenever you wish to perform an operation of witchcraft solo, all you basically need is a corner of your own home, the only prerequisite being privacy and a modicum of soundproofing. The latter is required not so much as a precaution against the neighbour’s objecting to your noise, but rather as a further aid to the discarding of inhibitions, which is of such primary importance in all magic.

However if you wish to gather a larger group of likeminded friends around you for regular witchcraft sessions, then of course you will need a larger space to operate in…Apart from the more obvious aspects of companionship and mutual enjoyment of the practices, the formation of a group or coven…brings with it certain advantages not present in the solo approach.

It is well known among practitioners of the occult arts that a magical operation performed by a group will often succeed spectacularly, whereas a solo effort may achieve only moderate success…Members (of the group) must be fully, and practically, conversant with the four powers of the witches pyramid…If enough pyramid power is brought to (the group) and tied in place by sufficient emotional rapport among the members, witches believe that a pool or vortex of energy begins to form, which, if sustained by regular performance of a ritual, not only becomes an “energy bank” upon which the members can draw to supplement their personal resources, but also an artificially constructed collective deep mind, independent in its own right!

The total number of members to a coven is traditionally limited to anywhere up to thirteen, inclusive of the leaders…In Goddess-oriented covens, with their concentration on the sexual aspects of witchcraft, the groups is ideally made-up of six male-female couples and the leader.
