Recommend Reads For ...
Post # 1

I found this amazing site with alot of information and free books, I was given the site by people on here. It is called I am currently reading the kybalion and The pictorial key to the tarot by a.e waite .

I was wondering if anyone else has been to this website an have read anything from it an if so can you reccomend anything that I should be reading to further my knowledge on magick. Really anything to help me learn about magick more, how it works, what forces are behind.

I have been interested in magick since I was very younge especially with all the things that have happened to me. So with that being said can anyone help me ?

also thank you for taking the time to read/reply,

Blessed Be.

Margaret Murray should be avoided like the plague. Other than that Magicinq gives good names.

I'd personally devour Levi first, and then maybe take a look at Agrippa's books, as well as the Magus by Francis Barrett. They can be dry, but these books shaped a lot of the modern Western practices present today.

Thank you everyone,

BandJunkie - I tried looking for those books an they where not on the site, But I did find a few on amazon used ones for 4 bucks a pop. So Ill more then likely buy them once Im done reading sacredtexts stuff. I might get it sooner so I just have to carry the book around. I heard really good things about those books an thank you!

Magickinqu: Ill for sure check them out, Im so amazed by this site and I really love everything they are offfering for free thats for sure. Thanks for the recommendations an help :) !

Dioskouri: Thank you for the warning about that specific author. The reason I made this thread was becaues I dont want to read books that are not going to help me on my journey so I really appreciate the warning. I was told to read about levi, What are your thoughts about aleister crowley?

I think people who say bad things about Aleister Crowley's spiritual writings have never read them, I think they are brilliant and worth attention by every occultist. Occultism wasn't respected in his day, and he worked hard to present it in a rational way which people from various backgrounds could relate to.

Must read Crowley books are "Liber ABA/Book 4, Magick Without Tears, and Eight Lectures on Yoga."

Must read Levi books: "Tanscendental Magic (dogma et ritual) and "The key of the mysteries".

Agrippa: "Three Books on Occult Philosophy."

Barrett: "The Magus."

Grimoires ( I recommend Joseph Peterson, Stephen Skinner, or Jake Stratton-Kent versions, avoid Crowley's goetia!): The keys of Solomon, the grimorium Verum, and Honorious.

Frater Achad (If he is on there): Q.B.L: The Brides Reception.

The reason I dislike Margaret Murray is that her research was poor and her facts faulty, you might as well read fiction.
