The research files vol. LXXXIII: Metatron

Standard

I’ll be covering the Archangel Metatron today; He is the ruler of the kabbalistic sphere Kether, representing cosmic wisdom and power through which God manifests into the rest of our world. Interesting to note that His face also appears on the first pentacle of the Sun, and known as the “face of God”; see the featured image.

From an occult point of view, I can see why Metatron has the highest position in the kabbalah; He corresponds to Scorpio (20°- unconventional) and is not Martian obviously, but it refers to His way of working, which is intense; Metatron is such a versatile one; can provide money, clairvoyance & understanding of the universe/ cosmos, prominence + the ability to be a good spokesman, thereby gaining support from parties, mastery of practically any artform (e.g. science, metaphysics) & information on past lives. All of the aforementioned are what He offers as a strong suit and as I mentioned before, He’s quite the multi-tasker.

Appearance is that of a transparent old man with beard, but in all honesty it can safely be stated that He has none, and He told me this too; I saw Him change forms intermittently and the above-mentioned form is a projection of my own subconscious as how to see Him.

 

The research files vol. LXXXII: Bartzabel

Standard

I’ll be doing the kabbalistic spirit of Mars today, named Bartzabel; it is said that He can raise storms which is untrue, and I can’t put my finger on which grimoire He comes from. The reason for this article, like the previous one, is that He appeared too. He appears as a dark, shady looking golem with red eyes and a red glow that is subject to change.

It is said, if you look online, practically everywhere that He is Martian, but nope. Bartzabel is Jupiterian (9° in Pisces- karmic) and does possess some martian traits so I can see the association, but that’s all. As mentioned just now, He works in a karmic way and His skill is money, really skilled at that. But the drawback is that He’ll dull relationships with others (bonds with others will decline).

I’ll close off with the fact that Bartzabel is timid, and doesn’t talk a lot. When He appeared alongside Och yesterday, all He said was His name, like “Bartzabel…”.
Here a post about someone that has worked with Him.

 

The research files vol. LXXXI: Och

Standard

I’ll be covering the olympic spirit Och from the magickal workbook called the Arbatel today; For those of you that don’t know the arbatel, follow the link on it’s name and/ or see a copy here.

As His description states therein, “Och governeth solar things; he giveth 600 years, with perfect health; he bestoweth great wisdom, giveth the most excellent Spirits, teacheth perfect Medicines: he converteth all things into most pure gold and precious stones: he giveth gold, and a purse springing with gold. He that is dignified with his Character, he maketh him to be worshipped as a Deity, by the Kings of the whole world“.

Well, He may be solar within the guidelines of the Arbatel, but not in general; for Och is a lunar spirit (Cancer, 26°- agriculture) and his attributes skillswise are correct. So health, wealth, medicine, herbs are His forté . He works in such an abstract and coercive manner as to cause strife in one’s life or destabilize it, but adversely sees to a one-track household. So the opposite for that. Keep that in mind. So He’ll throw certain aspects of life in disarray.

Funny thing is that I never liked the arbatel and remember people asking me whether I’ve worked with the spirits from it too; the whole reason for this piece is the fact that Och asked me to, appeared out of nowhere today as a medieval nobleman wearing yellow on top of a horse, and sometimes an ass. Lastly, Och says that He doesn’t mind that people use Solar correspondences, as long as they work with Him. He definitely doesn’t lack strength.

 

The research files vol. LXXX: Hecate

Standard

I’ll be covering the Greek goddess Hecate today, or Hekate; She was known and associated with Necromancy and black magick in general, light too and so on.

Hecate is Martian (0° in Scorpio- ready) and has a strong affinity for necromancy, unsurprisingly of course; this is her forte. She absolutely excels in this and offers to the average person, aside from that, financial support within a household, but drawback about Her is that She does make one fussy about mundane things in daily life in workings. Appearance is that of a woman with three heads, beautiful though. She seems to be short and straight to the point, not that I mind. Prefer it that way in this situation.

 

The research files vol. LXXVII: Hades

Standard

Now it’s my turn, as He asked me. Hades has to be one of my favorites in terms of greek gods, but then again I always felt to dark spirits. Hades is the greek god for the underworld and of death, the greek version of Satan, to put it that way.

He is Saturnian with a hint of Plutonian, unsurprisingly (28° in Capricorn- public) and is coercive by nature, very forceful and domineering; He can aid one in matters of clairvoyance & necromancy, and other general affairs e.g. financial aid, developing bonds with others and prominence.

He has told me that He isn’t just good at the necromancy bit that all know Him for, and likes to commit to the other tasks too. He appears as a man encircled by darkness, and also as a dark roman infantryman.

 

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 vol. LXXV: Mephistopheles

Standard

I’ll be discussing the infernal spirit Mephistopheles in this article; generally speaking, people know him from the story where Faust sells His soul or at least gambles it in dealing with Mephisto (his name is shortened like this). In it, He is said to be an agent of Satan, which He is.

Mephisto is A LOT like Satan, a true “mimic-er”; Jupiterian (28° in Pisces), with aggressive traits (martian traits). He is able to bring one overall progress and money, but at the cost of instability and erraticness. The same way that Satan generally operates. Other Jupiterian things are also on the table of course, like psychic abilities etc. but to a lesser degree, as well as any other general goal.

Mephistopheles does NOT have others beneath Him, so He is an independent agent in the literal sense. I personally don’t like His modus operandi, as well as Satan’s; I despise erratic workings, but for those that aren’t deterred by this, go ahead. Mephisto is strong. Lastly, He appears (again) just like Satan but with small, minor traits that are different, yet noticeable to me (I’ll never mistake Him for Satan); a roman soldier with wings…but again, it’s different, not like Satan…like twins almost, but twins that have discernible differences. Also like a general demon: a slender figure with elf like traits.

 

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 vol. LXXII: Isis

Standard

I’ll be covering the egyptian goddess Isis in this article; She is one of the most well-known in general, worldwide. The egyptians worshipped her primarily as a sky, nature- and protector goddess and so on. See here for more info.

Isis is Venusian, unsurprisingly, (14° in Taurus- movement) and therefore has her forté in matters concerning nature, earth and to a lesser extent weather. Practical applications are money and agricultural endeavors for example. She is swift in her way of working, so one won’t have to wait long for results. Another thing she was revered for is her magical prowess, or affinity in magic; do keep in mind that this is not her forté, based on her aforementioned attributes. Based on what I’ve read, it would seem that she was counted on for nature and feminine- based matters more than protection and magic, but that doesn’t mean of course that one should rule these traits out.

It is interesting to note that the Order of the golden dawn’s first temple partially bore Her name, and they have a strong link with Isis. This book also further supports that.

Lastly, Isis appears as a beautiful woman dressed in egyptian wear with a bird-like headdress to me with an orb staff, and has a friendly & gentle touch. She did go topless for me for a moment, and told me that this is because she knows that I have a strong sex drive.
This article is also interesting, denoting why she is depicted as having wings, despite the fact that it was obvious to me.

 

The research files vol. LXXI: Baphomet

Standard

It’s Baphomet’s turn to be written about; What do I know about Him off the top of my head? That He was an entity worshipped by the Knights Templar in the crusader time period & that He is unjustly seen today or nowadays as a symbol for the devil (which doesn’t exist).

Now it’s time for facts about Baphomet from an occult perspective; He’s Lunar (Cancer, 8°- cunning) and quite the skilled one. Does well in matters of clairvoyance, money, and good fortune. Interesting story too from back in the day, as a beginner. I remember, when mastering astral traveling, seeing Baphomet once hovering above my physical body while being in astral form. I didn’t know what it meant back then, and honestly don’t know now even, I can merely speculate but it’s not worth to spend time, let alone resources on finding out. Most likely a preview of things to come or He was just drawn to me due to the magical activity. Baphomet can frequently be seen displaying the armsigns for as above, so below.
