Valhalla, Myths of Norseland: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

I was looking around trying to find more works which involved paganism, especially Norse or Egyptian, to release over time, and some time ago I found about a dozen good works; this is one of them, just in time for that happy point in the year where the Fimbulwinter begins to decline away!

More a compilation than an authored work, its authors main contribution is its rather helpful index, as the preface she includes is a lengthy allusion to Christendom and the then-interesting facet of classical lore that people tended to ruminate on Rome and ignore the far north- a tendency now inverted today. It is a collection of twelve Norse tales, in poetic form, all the way up to Ragnarok and past it with the Regeneration. In this respect it is a standard collection, but an important one, especially for those who keep predicting Ragnarok literally and forgetting that it isn’t the end of history, just of a cycle.

Mysteries of the Rosie Cross: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This work comes from a rather expansive (and otherwise mostly one-minded) collection of texts from the golden period of both real and quack-like academia involving occultism, from that special era in the 1890s; specifically, this is one of the better titles within the Phallism series that almost certainly was created by Hargrave at the time. Unlike most entries in that series, this one has nothing to do with symbology and everything to do with the Rosicrucians’ own then-translated purported literary history, with some alchemy and other subjects tossed in. The only other entry in the series that deviates from that one taboo subject of reproductive spiritual material is Ophiolatreia (which I edited quite some time ago.)

It’s quite good, actually, despite the fact that parts of it are a bit dense and difficult to fit into a linear sort of system; most of the content here was copied by the author verbatim into the work; some of that content is quite strange and fantastical, almost Atlantean. Nonetheless it is academically sound.

The New Dream Book: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This work is a bit longer and more fleshed out than some (even some fortune telling works.) Primarily a work of dream interpretation, it also covers prognostication by moles and card throwing, and contains a very simplified, extremely short oraculum of sorts that nonetheless does not follow any other prescribed method; due to its date of manufacture it might actually be the first work to utilize a chart-like grid oracle, which was then improved upon later.

As with other works of dream interpretation prior to the late pre-modern period (the forties and fifties mostly) its interpretations are used for fortune telling instead of, as is generally the case in the present, psychology and introspection. All around a great occult work!

The Divining Rod: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This short but interesting manuscript is a compilation of lore related to the use of the divining rod (or dowsing rod) and was created by Latimer in the mid 1800s- Latimer proclaims his own skill with the use of the same and seems to take it fairly literally (minus the new age usage of the same- namely as a homeopathic medicinal object for closing “negative energies” off to heal the sick.)

The manufacture, use, and history of the dowsing rod is all spoken of here, both by the author himself as well as from sources he has compiled- a nice work on the subject, arguably one of the few in depth looks at the phenomena at all.
