Spipher

Standard

I’m recording this for my own personal purposes, this is in reference to the article in which I dealt with Mercury extensively; I have my first Mercurial celestial spirit, an angel by the header’s name called Spipher (pron. Spaifer).

He deals wil all things, and specializes in results that will manifest as quickly as possible. Obviously, He is Mercurial and corresponds to 22° in Gemini. Appearance is that of a transparent angel, and non-transparent wise an angel with blond hair & orange robe.

 


 

Delving into Mercury

Standard

I’ll be discussing Mercury and mercurial spirits, specifically their attributes and related. I have never been a fan of Mercury as an occultist, but working with a recent gemini spirit has made me rethink this and start becoming fond of it.

In the GKoS, Order of the pentacles it is mentioned that ” They easily give answer,
but they can with difficulty be seen”; this is true, since in my experience gemini spirits, are significantly more ethereal and “airy” compared to other spirits. They work quicker and are very swift in their dealings, and motion. Examples are Sitri, Belial, Salas’ash, Clauneck and so on. These kinds of spirits are very useful and convenient for people that want results ASAP, which is a lot. Individuals dealing in the occult want results as quickly as possible, more often than not. So there you go.

 

 

 

The research files LXXVI: Zeus

Standard

Zeus, the main god of the greeks after the fall of the titans and later dubbed as Jupiter by the romans. What can I say other than this was coming. Zeus has asked me politely if I could write about Him, and thusly I am.

Zeus is Mercurial (25° in Gemini- motion) and is good for overall improvements in one’s daily life; money, and progress in that way are what He has to offer one, along with minor good fortune. I never liked Zeus personally, but that doesn’t take away the fact that He can come in handy for that which is mentioned earlier. I am surprised though, at the level of worship He had from the greeks. His temple below:

The research files LXXIII: Maat

Standard

I’ll be talking about the egyptian goddess Maat today, the goddess that stood for positive aspects of mundane and daily life; so order, balance, fairness, honesty and so on. Basically “proper etiquette”.

Maat appears as Isis, a winged goddess that looks a lot like her, but of course not exactly like Her. To be honest, appearance-wise I prefer Isis, but that’s okay. Nothing else can be said about physical features. Interestingly, my dog’s name is Naat and I tease her sometimes about her being a canine goddess (lol) and because they sound so familiar, Maat appeared at a later stadium which I knew was going to happen.
She’s Mercurial (27° in Gemini- artist) and a powerful at that; She’s good for all things that deal with daily life, along with domestic life and related matters. Practical applications are money, family life, communication, short distance travel and so on. Law & justice are also on the table, but not her strong suit. Still good for that, though.

Interesting (not too much) stories about Her are here; also prayers etc. here.

PS I share these since I have no real experience in working with Her.

The research files LXVII: Apollo

Standard

The greek god apollo was worshipped by the greek people as god of the Sun; I shall be writing about Him.

Apollo is Mercurial, NOT Solar (Virgo, 3°- productive) and a strong one at that. He is good for financial prosperity, health (physical) and getting work done in general. If one wishes to reach his ambitions, Apollo is a pagan god with whom that can be achieved (of course He’s not the only one). Appearance is a man with red hair, wearing only pants or undergarments (so bare-chested), with bow and arrows. Little else to be said.

Read here for information on Him; needless to say, as is the case in general, He can also do the opposite regarding his attributes (disease & poverty).

 

The Research files vol. LIX: Thoth

Standard

I’ll be doing Thoth here, the egyptian God of writing, communication etc. He was one of their major Gods and very important.

Thoth is Mercurial (duh) and corresponds to 28° in Gemini, which stands for confidence. This means that engagement with him depends on you, as an operator; lose confidence in yourself and He’ll tone it down a bit too. He can help you with all things regarding communication, e.g. writing, math etc. All things attributed to Him:

The Egyptians credited him as the author of all works of science, religion, philosophy, and magic. The Greeks further declared him the inventor of astronomy, astrology, the science of numbers, mathematics, geometry, land surveying, medicine, botany, theology, civilized government, the alphabet, reading, writing, and oratory. They further claimed he was the true author of every work of every branch of knowledge, human and divine“.

When Thoth showed himself just now, He told me that He does not like to be disturbed by others, unless they’re really serious in working with Him. Appearance is typical too, half man- half Ibis, or half man- half baboon. The latter is second though.

 

The Research files vol. LVI: Raphael

Standard

I will do a brief piece on the Archangel Raphael; I have not worked with Him, but He likes me writing about Him & it was He whom I tried to evoke back in the day as a beginner.

I am more than familiar with Raphael, as I visited the Sun multiple times when astral traveling, and back then He appeared as a huge ball of yellow light, voice echo-like and all. He rules the Sun, so that’s obvious and some (incorrect based on my knowledge & exp.) consider Him ruler of Mercury. It has happened once or twice that a customer has requested something that I could ask Raphael for, but those would-be customers never followed through. Raphael is, aside from healing, good for all general affairs in terms of prosperity and so on. Overall progress and the keyword here is abundance in all fields. Back when I tried to evoke Him as my first spirit, it was like starting a car with a faulty motor due to the fact that evocation is not my forté; He appeared in part, and then evaporated right away.

He appeared to me a week or two ago and due to my current skill level, more beautiful than ever; a beautiful blond man, wearing yellow & purple surrounded by a blaze of golden light and again just now.

 

The Research files vol. LIV: Buer

Standard

I’ll be covering Buer this time, since He appeared to me this afternoon and offered His services. For those of you that don’t know who He is, He’s a goetic spirit, the 10th to be exact. See here.

Buer’s description states “The Tenth Spirit is Buer, a Great President. He appeareth in Sagittary, and that is his shape when the Sun is there. He teaches Philosophy,
both Moral and Natural, and the Logic Art, and also the Virtues of all Herbs and Plants. He healeth all distempers in man, and giveth good Familiars. He governeth 50 Legions of Spirits, and his Character of obedience is this, which thou must wear when thou callest him forth unto appearance“. This is what I meant in this video when stating that certain conditions for working with these spirits only applies to the Goetia. In this case, that would be the Saggitary part & wearing the seal etc. Buer’s seal is beneath:

Buer' seal

Buer told me that His –Leo with cartwheel for paws– appearance is not His true shape, and He takes that on due to the fact that He’s mistakenly identified with the Sun; He favors the Sun, but is traditionally Mercurial (20° in Gemini) and showed me His true form, which is that of an Orc-like being with a spear. So hence the knowledge of herbs and so on too (Mercury). Mercury also has healing potential, duh. Lastly, He told me that he is an ex- order of Angels member and prefers His seal always be used in working with Him & Tzaphkiel told me that Buer partly falls under Him.

 

The Research files vol. LIII: Prometheus

Standard

Most people out there are familiar with the Greek Titan God Prometheus; the one who stole fire from the Olympian Gods and gave it to mankind and so on. Those that don’t know Him, follow the link with His name.

Prometheus is seen and used as a metaphor for the striving of knowledge and great fall that lies in the danger of overreaching oneself in doing so, if one goes too far or fails, even to this day; Pop media references like the blockbuster movie for example prove that. I’m going to discuss His occult merit next.

I need to state beforehand that I have no experience in working with Him, but do have enough data and information on Him; Prometheus is one that I’ll really keep in mind, as He is another gem of a pagan God that has real power and can be very, very useful. For me personally, it would be money via occult endeavours that would await me, as my own forecast on Him states. He is Mercurial (17° in Virgo- Hypocrisy) and the drawback is that He will overreach himself in doing work for you sometimes, hence the “hypocrisy” aspect in his zodiacal degree, which might lead to difficulties. Regarding appearance, He shows himself to me as a red-haired/ ginger man wearing underwear or a loincloth.

At first glance you’d think that His forte would be knowledge, but no; He excels at work and work-related affairs and overall progress.

 

The Research Files vol. XLIII: Gaia

Standard

I’ll be covering a pagan goddess this time, the Greek goddess Gaia; she is the mother of the earth and nature etc. See here for more information on her. I personally don’t like pagan Gods, as my followers already know, for their lack of power for one and that fact that they’re manmade spirits, but I was inspired after playing a video game (out of boredom) called Age of mythology: the Titans, in which she is a selectable deity. It’s not all about power and some pagan entities are good to work with, and Gaia is another one of them.

Surely enough, thinking about Her drew her to me and she offered to talk to me on what she has to offer, without compensation via an offering or otherwise; she is good for everyday things, communication overall, clairvoyance (to a lesser degree), nature-related matters, mental pursuits (e.g. education wise), maternal matters, and so on. She welcomes followers, but doesn’t want to return to her “former level of glory” and mass attention; she is fond of her peace and also does not want people to ask her for vengeful tasks, e.g. harming someone, despite her being able to do so (to a certain extent).

Gaia corresponds to Mercury, with Gemini as zodiac sign (28°, originality) and says that a seal is not necessary, but people that are used to working with seals can use one of a Hexagram with a leaf symbol in the middle. She does have quite some power, so I wouldn’t underestimate her. Read here about Gaia’s greek story. I thought at first that she was Lunar due to the whole mother goddess/ nature aspect, but nope…
