Les Clavicules de Salomon « Talismanie « Occultisme Article publié le 17 août 2005 Les « Clavicules de Salomon » sont attribuées selon les auteurs à Agrippa, Salomon ou Albert. Le terme de clavicula signifie « petite clé » et est utilisé alors comme passeport obligatoire pour accéder à la science secrète, à la connaissance et aux richesses. La Grande Clavicule de Salomon était le grimoire que tous les sorciers et magiciens se devaient d’avoir et fit sa première apparition vers les XIe-XIIe siècles. Au XIVe siècle, à Prague centre de la magie, on prétendit que ce grimoire était en fait l’oeuvre du pape Honorius III, qui le rédigeat en 1216. Le plus authentique des exemplaires connus se trouve à la bibliothèque de l’Arsenal, c’est celui du cardinal de Rohan.

A bad witch's blog The Village Witch Same deal as the last one. This one hails from 2002 and was written as a talk and printed as an essay on the Witches Voices website. As I write this, I am sitting by a lake surrounded by 1600 acres of YMCA camp. It is almost painfully beautiful, even though the deciduous trees haven't leafed yet. It smells good here, too. Let me be clear at the outset--I like Earth Day. But Earth Day always falls to 'holiday syndrome'--it comes and goes and we don't have to think about it again for another year. Most of us don't feel connected to our planet in any meaningful way. Before we were kicked out, ashamed of our animal nakedness, we were given orders to name every critter in the garden and, once the magic ritual of naming was complete, the garden and everything in it was ours to do with as we thought fit. Last year, I attended an interfaith lecture on religion and ecological issues. The arrogance of this position stuns me. And where are the Pagans in all this? Our time has come again.

[biographie] Scott Cunningham Biographie : Scott Douglas Cunningham est né en 1956 à Royal Oak (Michigan) aux Etats-Unis. Il est le deuxième enfant d’une famille de trois. Quelques années plus tard, il déménage avec ses parents en Californie dans la ville de San Diego. À part de nombreux séjours à Hawaii, il demeura toute sa vie à San Diego. Quelques biographies de l’auteur disent qu’il commença à s’intéresser à l’occulte et à la magie au début des années ’70, par la lecture d’un livre appartenant à sa mère « The Supernatural » par Douglas Hill et Pat William. Quelques années plus tard, il s’inscrivit à l’Université de San Diego où il étudia la création littéraire. Cunningham commença alors à écrire pour de nombreux articles pour diverses publications et deux après avoir entamé ses études universitaires, il décida de les abandonner pour se consacrer à l’écriture et la rédaction. Quelques années plus tard, en 1983, il apprit qu’il souffrait de la maladie de Hodgkin. Bibliographie (liste non exhaustive)

Hecate Wicca Radio How To Make Your Home a Magical Sanctuary — The Traveling Witch Integrating your craft into your home can be a daunting task. Unless you’re just a stellar housekeeper your home is likely at least a little messy all of the time. Unopened mail might still be sitting on the counter, that pile of laundry that you just didn’t get to this week is still on the floor, or maybe you’ve just got a little extra clutter from too many missed spring cleanings. Despite how much these things can make your space feel distinctly un-magical, making your home into a sacred place for yourself doesn’t have to be difficult. Turning your home into a witchy haven isn’t for everyone, there are a lot of reasons to give it a go and everyone is going to have different motivations (or no motivation, which is ok too). Creating a magical sanctuary can also help to keep you in tune with your craft. Start simply, often just working on one room is enough to get the ball rolling. I use this for almost everything. Bedrooms can be a lovely place to do magic.

Aquila ka Hecate Free Ebooks on Wicca Wicca is a Neopagan religion and a religious movement found in various countries throughout the world. It was first popularised in 1954 by a British civil servant named Gerald Gardner after the British Witchcraft Act was repealed. He claimed that the religion, of which he was an initiate, was a modern survival of an old witchcraft religion, which had existed in secret for hundreds of years, originating in the pre-Christian Paganism of Europe. Wicca is thus sometimes referred to as the Old Religion. The veracity of Gardner's claims cannot be independently proven, and it is thought that written Wiccan theology began to be compiled no earlier than the 1920s.
