Magick and Occult
by: Watkins Books
There is an archetype of a powerful magician who, in a dark robe, uses a colorful and powerful wand to direct magical energy and achieve goals. Now you can learn how to make the robe and wand, along with hundreds of other traditional magical items in "Creating Magical Tools "(a revised and expanded section of the previously published "Secrets of a Golden Dawn Temple)" by Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero, Senior Adepts of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
Information on the nature of virtually every magical tool and device used in the initiations and magic of the Golden Dawn is included in this book. That way you can choose which ones you would like to add to your magical practices. Then, after you choose, the book includes full directions for making everything from the wands and altars to the pillars and Enochian tablets. The Ciceros have spent over two decades refining their construction methods, so you will be able to learn from their extensive experience.
This book has something to offer to those uninterested in the Golden Dawn tradition itself, but interested in learning how to make and use the magical tools. Here you will find the secrets of the wand and dagger, chalice and pentacle. You also may choose to use the pillars and banners, or any of the hundreds of tools and symbols described in the book. Whether you are a Wiccan, Witch, Thelemite, or Ceremonial Magician, you will find lots of value here.
Readers who do not want to be part of a group, but would like to link into the Golden Dawn tradition will also find this book helpful. With these tools, and the information about their meaning, you can link into the "Golden Dawn Current" and practice real Golden Dawn magic.
And finally, if you are a member of a group that follows the Golden Dawn tradition, you will find that having these tools will enhance your rituals and give them even greater vitality.
