Lecture / Class Abstract:
From distant antiquity, the choirs of angels have existed. All religions recognize intermediary spirits between the Divine and humanity. In the purest sense, an angel is a messenger relaying power and wisdom between worlds. They exist to uphold the Divine Laws. Lastly, as mediators of the forces of creation, their aid may be courted for aid in all matters (mundane and spiritual). This class draws from the Hermetic synthesis of the Italian Renaissance, the Angelic Art taught by Madeline Montalban, and the Greek Magical Papyri. Both theory and practice will be addressed.
Some highlights include (but are not limited to):
~~ A Brief Overview of comparative angelology
~~ One’s Holy Guardian Angel in magical lore
~~ Guidelines and Preparations to Angelic Magic
~~ Considerations for Prayer and Meditation
~~ Divining your personal Moon and Sun Angels
~~ The Archangels of the Elements and Planets (basic correspondences)
~~ Methods of Petitioning (Italian Stregoneria, American Conjure, Ceremonial Magic)
A brief resource list will be shared for further study. Please bring a notebook and writing utensil to the class. (Recording of the class is permitted so long as the participant notifies us at the start of class).
