I’ll display the agricultural skill that Och possesses; see here for the initial article on Him for people that aren’t familiar with it or Him. Long story short, I managed (with zero agricultural knowledge) to grow 2 mundane vegetable plants under lesser conditions; a tomato and pepper plant was my aim, but all went well- seeds sprouted into tiny plants between a week or two and from the 9 seeds that I planted, it appears that all 9 have sprouted as opposed to the 3 or 4 that I’d expect which is generally the case, according to the instructional videos I watched.
See this link for images of the plastic containers in which I grew them and His altar, with offerings etc.
* He told me that He was of the order of Powers, but no more; but is in between realms and neither celestial or infernal; Sort of a freelance spirit.
Imagine what He can do for farmers that do large scale work..
– Also interesting for those interested in Agriculture:
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.
