Some time ago (a couple of years!) I decided that if synchronicity could be said to exist, and the occult in part hinged on this as a central principle, evidence of it should be seen in even fairly mundane endeavors. A tome could be written on superstition as it relates to football fans especially (not washing ones’ socks during a winning streak comes to mind?) but I wanted to go a bit further, specifically into two subtopics I have not seen written about before.
First- what is the symbolism, totemic and occult in nature, of each NFL team? Where in literature or elsewhere can their mascots, names, etc be found?
Second- is there a correlation, seemingly, between the superbowl winner in a given year and the years’ events?
I remark on both of these within this work- over time (some decades) more data points for the latter will be available and we have to acknowledge that teams occasionally change symbolism or location as well, which is of import.

This work is one of the best academic treatments of religious history that I have encountered. It spans a dozen cultures and many centuries in its pages, going from Babylon, Egypt, and ancient India, up through Greece, Rome, and into the then-modern period of the late 19th century.
Most of the lore here is in the form of historical quotation from Tacitus, Pliny, Caesar, and others, or else notations regarding the similarity between epic poems and literal mythology and the then-accepted trappings and symbols of Christendom. Indeed, the imagery of twelve followers (disciples), halos, resurrection, virgin birth, and many more such tropes, are originally pagan, and any actual historical Jesus is in all likelihood lost to history, because the subsequent writings on this figure were an amalgamation of a half dozen solar cults.
Alright literary world, it’s time for a brief update as spring (very slowly) decides to encroach; this gives me a lot of ambition while suffering from cabin fever, although once it actually gets nice outside I do a “little” less editing and writing for a while mid spring.
I am currently about 90% of the way through “Aryan Sun Myths” and so that work will be ready and available within a week or so- “Demonism” I am half done with, so that would be the third week of March, roughly. A couple other works are planned for March: once Aryan Sun Myths is complete I’ll begin editing, I believe, the Theurgia Goetia, or perhaps the Paulina and Almadel (the two will be released together due to the lengths being too short to get the Paulina out solo); either way I’ll be contacting my illustrator, and by the summer all four books of the Lesser Keys will be available, I hope. After that it won’t be long before I release an edition of the same with a fairly elaborate foreword and some explanatory comments.
I have a few short alchemical works of note to process as well, along with the planned two herbals!

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.
