And now it is time for my 155th occult work and the final work of 2018- the Ars Theurgia Goetia, which is the second book and a component of the Lemegeton AKA Lesser Key of Solomon which I released previously. It required some degree of reformatting since the work is shorter, but it’s still its own technical stand-alone work. However, it should be noted that some content here explicitly requires the first book, the Ars Goetia, to function.
This particular part of the Lemegeton dwells on spirits which are less Hellish and strictly demonic than the former work, while naming some of them as largely malevolent. The number of purposes for these demons and their summonable dukes (and occasionally “under-dukes”) are less than the arcane and strange Ars Goetia.
It’s time for a rather short update here as one of the most major occult works ever compiled nears completion- in the case of my edition, it is about 90% done as of now. The infamous Lesser Key of Solomon!
1. The Foreword is written, the Ars Goetia, Ars Paulina, and Ars Almadel are formatted with their new settings.
2. I am half done with the rough format of the Ars Theurgia Goetia.
Since I am slightly ahead of expectations for the end of November it should be done by the middle of December giving people time to grab a copy for Yule if they wish- but as always, I can’t promise that because sometimes I get busy with side works!
This is one of the four (true) works comprising the Lesser Keys of Solomon (the Notoria is not of the same era.) Less well known than the Ars Goetia, it is nonetheless 1. a distinct work and 2. important to the general tradition it is part of; specifically, it is an astrological work before anything else, which fails to give the sort of detailed list of powers for each of the angels it purports to allow one to summon.
It is broken into two sections. The first details the angels of the hours and the second one the twelve signs of the zodiac. In both cases, seals are constructed and used with a complex table of practice in combination with several invocations. It’s quite a good work overall albeit shorter than the Goetia it shares tradition with.
