Create Katadesmos

Katadesmoi in plural, katadesmos in singular are an ancient hellenic magickal technique. It requires a lead tablet and a nail. The desired purpose is simply written in the lead and then it is fold in half and with a nail on the center it is bound. The instructions of how to make a lead tablet efficently for magickal uses could be found in ancient papyri and ancient tablets.

Necromancy in Texts

Read some of the most detailed descriptions of ancient necromantic rituals as they can be found in ancient texts.

Ancient Hellenic Necromancy

This is an extended article that I am writing before the dark moon of September as an offering to the Goddess Hekate Chthonia. I am going to present some basic information about the ancient hellenic necromancy and then a presentation of one of the four biggest death oracles in the ancient world will be presented. Averno is closely associated with Hekate and Persephone. So, our Goddess lived there and She was very active bringing the dead back to life.

Crystals and Minerals

This is a project I did for the CoH Santuario de Hekate Thethys Krataiis.

The following list contains a small text with the properties of every crystal that I believe its energy is related to our Mother Hekate. In the end, I have written my suggestion for selecting the appropriate crystals for rituals. I have tried to write down a small description so anyone can choose the best related crystal according to his/her needs and intuition. In the Greem Magickal Papyri the lodestone is associated with Hekate by engraving three of Her forms.

He met there his teachers Nikias and Philitas. He then moved to Sicily from 283-275. His teacher was Asclepiades. In 275 - 270 he moved to Alexandria next to the palace of Ptolemaios. He met Alexander Aitolos, who was his teacher. In 270 he moved to Kos and met Leonidas the Tarantinos.

Tarot Meditation

This is a common technique for anyone who uses Tarot as a tool of divination or self improvement. Also, Golden Dawn practitioners use this technique for the same reasons.

Idolatry

The ancient Hellenes didn't believed in idolatry, the had a complicated religion full of Gods. Using the oracle of Trophonios in Boetia as an example we will see how this worked every time.

There is a several amount of people even in Hellas who believe that ancient Hellenes worshipped statues, so they call them eidololatres and the phenomenon idolatry. In ancient hellenic religion people believed in Gods and Goddesses, energies of the universe, angels, daimones (daimons). The gave to those energies different forms according to their vision or experience. Those forms were the statues. So ancient Hellenes never woshipped statues but the idea behind the statue, the idea that the statue represented.

The Golden Dawn Temple Tarot is one of a few Golden Dawn Tarot decks that are available for the magickal and tarot community. It is a pure representative of the english school of tarot, the most famous school. This deck is the most recent in its category and maybe the most vivid one.

It is available in the Wendrich Art House website (http://www.wendricharthouse.com/shop_gdttd1.htm#b1).
