Chaos Magick
By:
Post # 1
I've been getting into chaos magick for a while now-especially in it's philosophy. But I have two questions because the internet has left me unanswered.

1) Is chaos magick counted as dark magic?
2) While the motto is 'taking what we need', I believe in a god -my choice, not directed towards me- and chaos magick states we shouldn't be dogmatic/believe in tradition etc. . So is there something against that?

In all honesty, the idea of any magic being 'light' or 'dark' is up for interpretation. And even then, any definition like that is far more reliant on the purpose than the method.

That said, working with chaos is often seen as both and neither. Chaos is chaos; working with energies that are changing and unpredictable in nature, with no particular resonance towards being specifically beneficial or baneful.

It is like rolling dice, sometimes the number is in your favor, sometimes not. At least that is how I understand it anyways.


As for your second question, as far as I am aware there is no requirement for or against the following/honoring of a personal deity. Though philosophically to be chaotic lends towards not being beholden to the subjective light or dark. Seeing as most deities are more aligned to one side or the other of that coin, it is thought it would give a sense of similar obligation. So, the long and short is it usually makes things simpler for you.

Chaos magic isn't dark magic it's just a term that takes a little bit of this and than that from other paths that the person praticing may be intresting in.
