Startypes Visual Ephemeris: 1800-1900 by Michael Erlewine




I have been doing astrological readings for some forty-plus years. Back in the day, my most-used book was a little volume by Hugh McCraig called the "200-Year Ephemeris," which basically was a list of geocentric planets giving the planet positions at the first of each month. When I did a reading with a client, this was the book I reached for to see where Saturn or other planets today were in the natal chart. With the McCraig book in mind, I wanted to create something similar, but what I also needed were graphic wheels to see at a glance where the planets are in the zodiac and what major aspect patterns are present. The StarTypes Visual Ephemerides do all of this and more. Each month has a 360-degree open chart when with planets and aspect patterns drawn in plus a listing of the Sun, Moon, planets and lunar node by degrees and minutes. Given this information, it is easy to flip through the pages and watch the kaleidoscopic aspect patterns change in the sky - perfect for readings....Author



















Picatrix (Ghayat Al-Hakim) The Goal of the Wise, Vol. 1




This is a book that has been far too long out of the hands of English readers. Previous editions were garbled, incomplete or only available in Latin or Spanish or German. This is *the* magnificent lost source of all of Abramelin, the Goetia, Agrippa - and of most of the entire tradition of Western Ceremonial Magick starts with this book!

This is the native Arab tradition that everyone from Agrippa to Dee to Mathers to Crowley has had to deal with second hand. Brion Gysin had to 'go native' in Morocco to get it first hand, and then in a folk context.

A Dark Muse: A History of the Occult by Gary Lachman




Mr. Lachman continues to delight and amaze me with a prodigious mind for western esotericism and a disarming writing style so much like his mentor, Colin Wilson, in that one feels he is there with you discussing these fascinating topics. This is a work that explores the literary history of western occultism and the terminal documents that make up that intellectual history. This work stands in the effort to place before the public the historical reality that the esoteric has been a foundation stone upon which many cultural endeavors have been focused upon, but remain "outside" and unrecognized by many academics and scholars.

The chapter on the pre- revolution Russian occult literary scene is excellent and you will find yourself jotting down titles & authors to further explore. Mr. Lachman's work is the first I can recall that provides a brief but welcome overview of the life of Gustav Meyrink. Meyrink, remains sadly neglected by the English speaking esoteric world. Again, I appreciate Lachman's effort to demonstrate that Swedenborg is the progenitor of much of the western esoteric world view. It is not without noting that D.T. Suzuki called Swedenborg, "the Buddha of the North".

Highly recommended, this is one Muse that will continue to inspire, enlighten, and provoke even after repeated readings.






















Shiva, The Destroyer and the Restorer by Philippe L. De Coster




“God-realisation, or siddhi means Self-realization in the highest sense of the term. One consciously realises his oneness with the Supreme. As long as the seeker remains in ignorance, he will feel that the Supreme is someone else who has infinite Power, while he, the seeker or devotee, is the feeblest person on earth. But the moment he realises the Supreme, he comes to know that he and the Supreme (God) are absolutely one in both the inner and the outer life. Godrealisation means one's identification with one's absolute Highest Self. When one can identify with one's highest Self and remain in that consciousness forever, when one can reveal and manifest it at one's own command, that is Godrealisation", that is Self-realization.

Meditation and Mysticism is an individual path into the world of the divine within and beyond rites, rituals and philosophies. It is the inner light and sound provide the spiritual guidance.

Titus Burckhardt - Alchemy




Alchemy: Science of the Cosmos, Science of the Soul_ by traditionalist author Titus Burckhardt is a unique book which examines the science of alchemy in the light of its traditional interpretation. Burckhardt quotes extensively from such figures in the traditional school of thought as Rene Guenon, Mircea Eliade, and Julius Evola (who all had written on alchemy), as well as Carl Jung, the depth psychologist who attempted to understand alchemy in terms of the collective unconscious (relating it to the process of individuation).

Burckhardt begins by noting that contrary to the modern historical and scientistic interpretation, alchemy was not so much a forerunner of modern day chemistry and science as it was a process of spiritual growth embodied in tradition. Burckhardt notes how alchemy had its origins in the Egyptian deity of Thoth-Hermes and in the writings of Hermes Trismegistos which came out of Egypt. Later, alchemy was to come to play an important part in all the world's great religious traditions, including Hindu, Buddhist, Chinese, and primitive Japanese religions as well as the three monotheistic religious traditions Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Much of this book is spent discussing various source materials from these three monotheistic religious traditions as they relate to alchemical transformation. Burckhardt notes that alchemy did not derive from a desire to enrich oneself by transmuting base metals into gold as had originally been conjectured. Rather, the gold came to represent a spiritual state attained by the alchemist.

Much of this book is spent discussing the seven base metals as they relate to the seven planets and the four elements (air, earth, fire, water) as well as the ether. In addition, the concept of the "chemical marriage" of sulphur and quicksilver, sun and moon, king and queen to achieve gold is explained. Various symbols including the ouroborus, the caduceus (or staff of Hermes), the Christian cross, and the seal of Solomon are explained in terms of the alchemical meaning. In addition, alchemy is related to the system of yoga and the kundalini, as well as other far eastern traditions. The athanor or the oven in which the alchemical elixer is prepared is also explained in terms of its symbolism.

Burckhardt also includes a section discussing the life of Nicolas Flamel, a fourteenth century alchemist who came into contact with a special alchemical treatise. In addition, the Emerald Tablets are discussed, which reveal the principle "whatever is below is like that which is above" showing the direct relation between macrocosm and microcosm (Man). This represents an excellent source on alchemy as revealed through the lens of the traditionalist school of thought and the perennial philosophy.
