Mastering Enochian Magick

dee_sigillum_museumMy Mastering Enochian Magick Series teaches the Enochian magick of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelley according to the attributions derived from Dee’s spirit diaries, along with some modern techniques that I have found effective for working with the original system.

While certain authors have described my work as “Neo-Enochian” on the grounds that I include instructions for ceremonies like modern pentagram and hexagram rituals, I avoid the use of the later Golden Dawn models and associations, on the grounds that the original system works just fine without them. I include full ritual templates by which you can perform the various operations grimoire-style, without any modern forms, or include them as you see fit in the appropriate places.

The first book in the series, Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy, was released by Pendraig Publishing in 2011 and to my knowledge is still the only book out there focused entirely on the Heptarchia Mystica. The system of Kings and Princes for the seven days of the week is the only portion of the spirit diaries that Dee ever organized into a functional grimoire and which he may have used to help defeat the Spanish Armada in 1588. The book covers everything you need to know about working with the Heptarchial system along the original lines.

The second book, Mastering the Great Table was released by Pendraig Publishing in late 2013. It addresses working with the angels and other entities of the Great Table, which is also called the four Castles or Watchtowers. It includes a synopsis of the first eighteen Angelic Keys and conjurations adapted from those written by Dee for the various classes of angels. Like Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy, it includes a full template for performing Great Table operations according to traditional grimoire methods with or without particular modern forms that I have found to be effective in my own personal work.

The third book, to be titled Mastering the Thirty Aires, is on its way, but it is proving to be more difficult to put together than the other two and as a result I have already been at it substantially longer. This book will address the Thirty Aires, also called the Aethyrs in the Golden Dawn system, along the same lines as the other two books address the Mystical Heptarchy and Great Table. It will include a synopsis of the 19th or “Aire Key” which has thirty forms, one for each Aire, and a full template for performing operations with them.
