A practical, modern-day exploration of one of the oldest, most universal, and storied forms of folk magic, by Antonio Pagliarulo
Antonio Pagliarulo explores the phenomenon of The Evil Eye: what it is, its origins and causes — and, most crucially, how to avoid, repel, and remove it. Rich with cultural anecdotes and traditions, mystical lore, and modern concepts, The Evil Eye offers practical advice for shielding yourself from the destructive and lingering power of this mysterious and persistent force.
— Defines The Evil Eye and traces its roots into antiquity and across an extraordinary breadth of cultures and traditions
— Shows readers how to diagnose The Evil Eye, how to cure it, and how to cast it on others
— Explores the use of amulets and talismans bearing The Evil Eye, including its remarkable prevalence in popular jewelry designs
— Includes the history and use of various talismans such as the Hamsa; the Italian cornicello and mano figa; the azabache stone; the Kabbalah red string; mirror pendants; and many others.
“The Evil Eye by Antonio Pagliarulo, displays dilligent research into the subject, as well as how to protect yourself from the Evil Eye’s malignant effects. Read this book and you will become a warrior and nor a worrier. Envy is the Evil Eye: l’invidia il malocchio. The evil of envy is worldwide, the underside of vision! No need to write more. You who read my words, obtain this very valuable book.” — Reverend Lori Bruno-Sforza, HPS, Our Lord and Lady of the Trinacrian Rose Church and Chapel of the archangel Michael.

ANGEL MAGIC CLASS
BY: Jonathan Sousa
DATE: February 27, 2016
PLACE: Victoria Station Meeting Room
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 assistance in all matters (mundane and spiritual). This class draws from the Hermetic synthesis of the Italian Reinassance, the Angelic Art taught by Madeline Montalban, and the Greek Magical Papyri. Both theory and practice will be addressed.
Jonathan Sousa is a votary of the Goddess Diana, whom he serves through the initiatory framework of the Italian Continental Craft. Other paths are an admitted influence upon his development, and Jonathan draws from these in his unique approach to the Elder Faith. Much of his current research is upon the revival of oracular prophecy and Neoplatonic/Hermetic theurgy.
Jonathan is the author of Witch Heart: Essays in Traditional Craft Philosophy, Classical Polytheism, and Reflections in Diana’s Mirror (an anthology about his matron Goddess). A native of RI, he makes his home in Southeastern MA.
Jonathan will have his signed books available for purchase.
To register or for further information on Jonathan’s class, please stop by or call Magika at 978-740-9297.
See you there!
