Practical Planetary Magick

Working the Magick of the Classical Planets in the Western Esoteric Tradition

By Sorita d’Este and David Rankine

 

The influence of the seven Wandering Stars or Deathless Powers of the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter & Saturn has shaped the development of magick for many thousands of years.

 

Their influence can be seen permeating many of the modern Western Esoteric Traditions, who are the inheritors of the wisdom & knowledge passed down through the ages. From Ancient Sumeria to the Greeks, the Romans, the early Qabalists, the Medieval & Renaissance Grimoire Magickians through to the Victorian Occult Societies, the influence of the planets is clearly present in the symbolism of their ceremonies, practices & beliefs. In this practical sourcebook, the authors bring together old & new techniques which they hope will inspire others to explore the multi-faceted world of planetary magick.

 

Included are simple planetary contemplations, hymns & meditation journeys, ideal for the novice who wants to explore the symbolism of the planets & in doing so learn to focus the different planetary energies. Information is provided on the many spiritual beings associated with the planets – The Gods & Goddesses who gave their names to the planets, the Olympic Spirits, Archangels, Orders of Angels, Planetary Intelligences & Planetary Spirits. Essential techniques for creating planetary sigils using the magick number squares, calculating planetary hours, and making & consecrating amulets & talismans, are given with practical examples.

 

Drawing from their experience & knowledge gained working in a number of Western Esoteric traditions, the authors also present here original planetary techniques & ceremonies – including the Ritual of the Heptagram, Planetary Pyramids, Planetary Magick Circles & Angle Webs. The rich symbolism & influence of the magick of the Wandering Stars underlies the spiritual & magickal heritage of Western Esotericism. Through exploring & working with the Deathless Powers, the reader can come to a greater understanding of the transformative powers they offer every true seeker of the Mysteries.
