Its been sixteen years since I last tackled the subject of sigil magic as a writer and understandably my understanding of subject has evolved dramatically. Then I was writing for a group organised for teenage pagans called Minor Arcana. I wrote a chaos magic column for their magazine called 'Liber Minor', and for their website ...more
There is an aspect to my story of awakening that makes it even more unusual than those of the others I read. My awakening was not a completely solitary experience. Unlike Siberian shamans who went into the wilderness and hid from the face of the world my story involved intervention from a “second party” ...more
When I first started writing series of articles on Karma and Reality Tunnels I didn't for one moment expect where this was going to take me. All of the above theories about karma, Samsara and reality tunnels dependency become almost inadequate in case of the most incredible blessing a human mind can ever experience- spontaneous ...more
This article is a look at how named persona's can become extreme forms of possession invocation, with their own history, behaviours, dress sense and characteristics, distint from that of the host.
Sometime around 1997 I took on the Discordian holy name of 'Count Anton'. I took the idea of using an aristocratic title from the holy ...more
In case some of you didn't know that, Tara Berserkr is not my real name. Tara Berserkr is a live hypersigil - an extended work of art with magical meaning and willpower, created using adapted processes of sigilization.
I have chosen this name carefully and I am hoping that with time it will help me to ...more
A while back Anton wrote a short blog about KIA Drawkcab Monk Ritual he was involved in, performed on a palindromic date. I found the idea curious and maybe even subversive. Although I always loved maths, I never really liked numbers and dates. They seem to be hard to memorise especially because of my dyslexia. ...more
Last week Agent V and I performed our first formal ritual for Operation Intruder, a charging and empowering of the main Abduction sigil. I say abduction, it can also be used as an aid for CE5. Our technique here involved drawing a chalk sigil on the concrete slabs on our patio:
As you can see we chose to ...more
Thunderstorms have so much energy in them. They bring refreshment on a hot day and seem a perfect opportunity to sit back and be in the moment. In my childhood they often arrived in the evening. My family would switch off electricity in the house and we would sit in candle light by the window watching the ...more
Operation Intruder aims to bring High Strangeness events such as alien abduction upon those in our society who seem to need it the most. Our targets include politicians, corporate leaders, media barons, military intelligence, heads of state and others who run things badly and sustain suffering of others by acts of mindless greed. One of ...more

For this reading, performed on Tuesday 2nd June, Dana and I employed the ‘think I should do’ tarot spread and used the Medieval Scapini Deck. This was a deck we purchased after seeing it appear in a Daisy Chainsaw video some years back. We performed this reading with the intent of sharing it as an example ...more
Recent sociopolitical events bring both hope and despair. It seems like the consciousness of people around the globe rises higher than before and at the same time the tyranny and oppression carries on catching up. We think we need to up the game. If the people who make decisions do not stop thinking selfishly and acting ...more
I recently restored an old chaos magic website, Liber Minor, whose content I originally wrote in May 1998. Obviously my ideas have moved on a lot since then, and I've decided it might prove a fun idea to explore each of the subjects I wrote about back then from my current perspective. As you can ...more
I'm sure most of us have seen numerous variations of that meme that goes around. The one with 'what I think I do', 'what my friends think I do' and 'what I actually do'. For a while I had considered using it as a tarot spread. However when I actually came to do a reading ...more
Grace has burned me
Alive so many times, walking fire
As tedious as tears
Lovers with no hearts, all fears
So off with their heads.
Tore up my spine
And the flower that crowned it
Gave birth to a golden god.
Serpent twins, a man with wings
And so many curious things
All that ...more
Good night, it has become morning, its been a long night fiddeling with fiddlystuff,
so just a quickie.
eaven leaving the tough old boots on.
I think this will be milk
but now for some wine-
must fall fall fall and not think at ...more
I've decided to list myself as a creator on patreon, to enable those of you that like my work enough to show your appreciation by making small micro payments to do so. This will encourage me to produce quality articles, stories, ritual write ups and magical films. You can become my patron for as little as $1 ...more
Take me into your molten core
Oh fiery, dark and passion filled king
I have walked the shadowy passageways
Of my becoming, burning wings.
Golden starry angel of space
I light your realm, all love, all grace
Illumination to cast the dark
From the world and from our hearts
Devour me and I shall rise
Bells From the Deep is a 1993 documentary by Werner Herzog looking at different spiritual beliefs in Russia. I really enjoyed it. It shows some pretty bizarre things you would never guess were going on! A village private Jesus, ghost invested lake with a city hiding in its bottomless pit, healers, shamans and orphan playing ...more
To begin with I decided to focus on the oil. I read about maceration methods and decided to create oils using both hot and cold maceration. I also experimented with few different alternative ingredients. The last two variables concerned using whole pieces or powdered ingredients and lastly replacing dried with fresh materials where possible. I ...more
