I will clarify and apologize if I accidentally made it appear to be so. This is not the end all guide to what you must do. THIS IS, however, a pointer for anyone who's wondering what kind of magic would it be best for me to tackle first. I think it's safe to say that starting on the first tier with basic physical objects and conscious is a good place to start while moving more into working with subconscious is something that can help build up to. You do NOT have to go along with this. I just got tired of only ever hearing about the basics and never about the next step. Many people, myself included, were not entirely sure what was next or if it was set in stone or where I should start. This is for them. Not all of us have the leisure of looking back at and laughing. Some are still excited and figuring things out. As to why the link was not included in the beginning I apologize it slipped my mind.
I agree with Sue. They decide the next step however. Once they get a good understanding of the basics they are most likely able to see where to go next. They have a path they follow and it guides them. It's not the matter of someone giving a guide for them after the basics, but it's a choice they make as they learn more about their path because each one is different and not everyone practices the same type of basics as well. You have other traditions and beliefs that work differently. And this is where I got confused on: "THIS IS, however, a pointer for anyone who's wondering what kind of magic would it be best for me to tackle first." They're wondering which way is best for you? Either that me was suppose to be a "them" or you forgot the correct punctuation. lol Plus that statement doesn't sound like it is for them. I, personally, see more people asking help on a certain topic after they've done the basics. Not the entire thing in general. Plus no one is even laughing because we know if they have a question several of us will be there to help them. They may also be excited, but that excitement is what is teaching them what they need to know because it pushes them farther as well as encouraging them. It's good that you stated people don't have to go along with this, but you should state the topic as "What I so After the Basics" instead of saying this is what happens "After the Basics". Since this is based off your experience and not everyone you should make it a longer post rather than just making it into a series because different people follow different steps in different orders and practice differently. Just a bit of advice from my stand point.
Sorcery divination a system/medium (Tarot, I-Ching, Runes, Oracle Cards, etc.) is used to glean information. I personally recommend a second journal recording the reading and what was drawn/thrown/seen/etc. and what the interpretation of each was, as well as what they mean in context of their position and how you would interpret the reading as a whole. This will help you memorize your system and open up your subconscious, which shouldn't be the main goal in this tier, but will certainly help later. The journal will also help you to validate the accuracy of your readings and pass through the state of sorcery divination with a sense of surety.
Also, the reason this is done in series form is because very few people will want to read the entire thing in one go ;)
Sorcery enchantment is much akin to general spellcasting and should be done to influence events not so soon that the end result is already/nearly decided, but not so far off that the result of your actions is far off, mainly for the purposes of moving forward in one's journal. Physical representations should be crafted in a manner that they represent the end goal (which can be achieved through a good knowledge of correspondences).At this point a wand or athame would be appropriate to acquire for the purposes of banishing, ritual tier magic to come later, and on the sorcery level it will serve to in tracing pentagrams and other symbols.
These I am posting together due to their smaller size:
Sorcery invocation is at its core a childs game of play on a slightly larger scale. The point of the evocation not being to horse, but being to immerse oneself in a drastically different persona so as to create radical changes in behavior.
Sorcery illumination is the process of self-improvement through oaths sworn over a lamp which can be anything representing the witchs journey. The lamp is often destroyed and recreated, but should not be done on simply a whim. The goal should not be anything as big as enlightenment and should focus on at least a strength and a weakness.
