INTRODUCTION TO MAGIC Rituals and Practical Techniques for the Magus Group Evola/ur
• Rare Hermetic texts published in English for the first time.
• Includes instructions for developing psychic and magical powers.
In 1927 Julius Evola and other leading Italian intellectuals formed the mysterious UR group. Their goal: to bring their individual egos into a state of superhuman power and awareness in which they could act "magically" on the world. Their methods: the practice of ancient Tantric and Buddhist rituals and the study of rare Hermetic texts. So successful were they that rumors spread throughout Italy of the group's power, and Mussolini himself became quite fearful of them. Now for the first time in English Introduction to Magic collects the rites, practices, and knowledge of the UR group for the use of aspiring mages. Included in Introduction to Magic are instructions for creating an etheric double, speaking words of power, using fragrances, interacting with entities, and creating a "magical chain." Among the arcane texts translated are the Tibetan teachings of the Thunderbolt Diamond Path, the Mithraic mystery cult's "Grand Papyrus of Paris," and the Greco-Egyptian magical text De Mysteriis. Anyone who has exhausted the possibilities of the mundane world and is ready to take the steps necessary to purify the soul in the light of knowledge and the fire of dedication will find a number of expert mentors here.

JOHN DEE'S FIVE BOOKS OF MYSTERY Original Sourcebook of Enochian Magic Joseph Peterson
Discovered in a hidden compartment of an old chest long after his death, the secret writings of John Dee, one of the leading scientists and occultists of Elizabethan England, record in minute detail his research into the occult. Dee concealed his treatises on the nature of humankind's contact with angelic realms and languages throughout his life, and they were nearly lost forever. In his brief biography of John Dee, Joseph Peterson calls him a "true Renaissance man"¯-- detailing his work in astronomy, mathematics, navigation, the arts, astrology, and the occult sciences. He was even thought to be the model for Shakespeare's Prospero.
All this was preparation for Dee's main achievement: five books, revealed and transcribed between March 1582 and May 1583, bringing to light mysteries and truths that scholars and adepts have been struggling to understand and use ever since. These books detail his system for communicating with the angels, and reveal that the angels were interested in and involved with the exploration and colonization of the New World, and in heralding in a new age or new world order. While Dee's influence was certainly felt in his lifetime, his popularity has grown tremendously since. His system was used and adapted by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and subsequently by Aleister Crowley.
This new edition of John Dee's Five Books of Mystery is by far the most accessible and complete published to date. Peterson has translated Latin terms and added copious footnotes, putting the instructions and references into context for the modern reader.

KABBALISTIC ASTROLOGY The Sacred Tradition of the Hebrew Sages Rabbi Joel Dobin
A rabbi reveals the profound astrological tradition to be found in the Kabbalah, Bible, Talmud, and Midrash.
•A thorough explanation of the most sophisticated system of astrology known.
•More than 30 tables and charts for doing readings and creating horoscopes.
•New edition of Astrological Secrets of the Hebrew Sages.
The ancient Hebrews developed the richest and most sophisticated system of astrology known in the Western world, but this practice has been almost completely forgotten. Now Joel Dobin, an ordained rabbi and practicing astrologer, brings to light the wealth of astrological information in the Kabbalah, Bible, Talmud, and Midrash, revealing a profound tradition as valuable today as it was millennia ago. Key to this astrological system is the Kabbalah--the Jewish mystery tradition--in which the sacred Tree of Life links the influences of the twelve zodiacal constellations and seven planets to specific letters of the Hebrew alphabet, creating a unique method for constructing horoscopes. Analyses of the zodiac according to the rulerships of the sons of Jacob, the importance of solar and lunar directions and masculine and feminine influences, and the paradigm-shifting nature of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction (next scheduled for 2001) are all explored for their impact on global and personal destiny. More than 30 tables and charts put all the information needed for doing astrological readings at your fingertips.
KABBALISTIC TAROT Hebraic Wisdom in the Major and Minor Arcana Dovid Krafchow
When the Greeks invaded Israel and forbade study of the Torah the Jewish people began a secret method of Toranic study that appeared to be merely a simple way to fill time: playing cards. These first tarot decks enabled study of the Torah without detection. Once the Maccabees expelled the Greeks from Israel and the country once again became a Jewish kingdom tarot cards dropped from sight. Fifteen hundred years later in response to Jewish disputations with Catholic theologians political and religious persecutions and ultimately the Inquisition the cards resurfaced as a secret learning tool of the Torah. In KABBALISTIC TAROT Dovid Krafchow details how the true meaning of the tarot is locked within the Kabbalah. He shows the correspondence between the 22 Major Arcana cards and the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet and how the four suits correspond to the four kabbalistic worlds of Briah Yitzerah Asiyah and Atzilut. He describes the kabbalistic meanings of each of the 78 cards and their relations to the Torah and provides insight into the Tree of Life spread through several kabbalistic readings. Dovid Krafchow has studied Kabbalah and practiced the Tarot for more than 30 years. He began his study of the Torah at the Hadar Hatorah Institute for Rabbinical Studies in Brooklyn New York and lived for 10 years in Zefat Israel the city where the Kabbalah was received by the Ari Zal (Rabbi Isaac Luria) 500 years ago. He lives in Vancouver.

Who wrote this mysterious guide to the principles of esoteric psychology and worldly success? History has kept readers guessing. . . and now, for the first time, seekers everywhere can discover a widely available edition of a guidebook that has been an underground classic for generations.
Here are the teachings of the legendary sage Hermes Trismegistus, reinterpreted for the modern reader. Rumoured to be an ancient Egyptian man-god who fathered astrology, alchemy and other magical arts, the figure of Hermes has fascinated readers of occult literature for generations. Writers in late antiquity named Hermes Trismegistus as the author of their own esoteric teachings, building the mystery of his lineage. Since 1908, THE KYBALION - written at the hand of the unnamed “Three Initiates” - has itself generated debate and controversy. Who is behind it? Do its ideas really arise from the secrets of a distant era? And, most importantly, do they work for the modern seeker? In this concise, engaging guide, the pseudonymous author breaks down Hermetic doctrine into seven compelling principles and then provides practical methods for how to apply them for self-development in daily life. Here is the definitive edition of a classic of esoteric psychology, now available to readers everywhere.
This is another classic title in the 'Tarcher Cornerstone Edition' series, in which the great works of philosophy, spirituality and mind, body & spirit are presented for today's readers.
