Secrets of Dragon Magick (lesson) – Essence of Dragon’s Blood in Arcanum with Joshua Free

arc2013banner

Dragons are significant archetypes in ancient mythologies and the magickal world of modern wizards. The earliest creation epics (of Sumerian or Ubaid-Sumerian origin) depict the Earth Planet as the “body” of a great dragon, and the skies as the “head.” The ancient Druids, descended from the primordial line of Dragon Kings by way of the Tuatha d’Anu (Tuatha de Dannan), referred to the Earth as a dragon…

DRAGON’S BLOOD (Daemonorpos draco)
A powerful herbal resin derived from the palm tree. It is burned as incense for protection, love/sexuality and fire-gazing (skrying) as attributed to the fire element and Mars. Resonating sacredness, it is burned for the purification of an area or nemeton. Men put pieces of dragon’s blood under their bed or carry it to regain “sexual virility.” The most common ritual application for the substance is dragon magick or dragon calling, although the use of the incense might in part be a incomprehension of “dragon-blood,” an ancient genetic requirement for magickal practice. The resin still vibrates the “feared” draconic energy that has been literally demonized since its designation, “daemonorops,” literally means “demon shrub.” The sap-like resin is drawn from the unripe fruit of the “Dragon’s Blood Palm Tree,” making it almost impossible for most American herbalists to become self-sufficient in their supply. — authorized excerpt from Arcanum by Joshua Free

Truth about Christmas Winter Solstice Yule Festival meaning defined with Arcanum by Joshua Free

arc2013banner

“That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown…”

Okay, well, Linus and the Peanuts gang got it almost right. Of course, like most of the mainstream contemporary spoon-fed and ignorant human population, they are propagating the fundementalist Christian perspective of Christmas — drawn from a religious system which seldom admits its plethora of borrowings, from the baptism to the covenant of sacraments and holidays, none of which are original or exclusive to the Judeo-Christian tradition.

In Joshua Free’s underground literary masterpiece, ARCANUM, we read:

arcanum2012thumb An ancient festival that observes the astronomical significance of the shortest day of the year on approximately December 21st, and being the darkest day of the dark half of the year, the Moon rules this solstice (whereas the Sun rules the Summer Solstice).

In most contemporary and ancient “pagan” and “aboriginal” traditions, the Winter Solstice is also recognized as the rebirth of the Sun-King or the Star-Child, as the strength of the Sun (and consequently, the length of day) begins to grow from this point of the wheel of the year until the summer solstice. For this reason the Vatican installed their own version of this “birth” as Christmas — a “rebirth” observed annually by billions of people on the planet. In many European-based traditions, the winter solstice is identified as Jul or Yule. The Druids held mistletoe, holly, ivy and other evergreens to be especially sacred during this time of year. These forms of life continue to thrive in spite of winter.

The “Yule log” is an ancient needfire tradition of burning a large log (often received as a gift or from one’s own property). It is burned along with a piece of the previous year’s log, and is allowed to smolder for twelve nights (until “Twelfth Night”). The festival is also called Mean Geimhridh in some Celtic Traditions and Alban Arthuann (“Light of the Bear”) in others (particularly Welsh, Barddas or Pheryllt-based). As an astrological event observed within the zodiac, the winter solstice occurs when the Sun enters Capricorn. — from ARCANUM by Joshua Free

Let us then turn to the words of the Gnostic mentors; here Samael Aun Weor writes:

310117_10151924936286988_1291959134_n “My brothers and sisters: observe the King Star in its elliptical movement. The sun moves from south to north and from north to south. The birth of the Sun Child is celebrated when the Sun advances towards the north. The Sun Child is born the twenty-fourth of December at midnight in order to dawn on the twenty-fifth. If the Sun Christ did not advance towards the north, the entire Earth would become a great mass of ice and all life would perish, therefore from the twenty-fourth of December the Sun God advances toward the north in order to animate, give heat and life to all creatures.”

“The Sun Child is born the twenty-fourth of December at midnight in order to dawn on the twenty-fifth, and is crucified on the spring equinox to give life to everything that exists. The fixed date of its birth and the variable date of its death always have a deep significance within all the religious theologies. The Sun Child is born weak and needy in this humble manger of the world and in one of those very long nights of winter, where the days are very short in the regions of the north.”

“During the time of Christmas, the sign of the Celestial Virgin rises on the horizon, and thus this is how the child is born in order to save the world. During his infancy, the Sun Christ is surrounded by dangers, since by all means its is very clear that during the first days the kingdom of darkness is much longer than light — his kingdom — yet despite all the terrible dangers that threaten him, he survives.”

“Time passes… the days cruelly are extended, and finally the spring equinox — Easter, the Holy Week — arrives, which is the moment in which he has to cross from one end to the other — that is, the moment of the crucifixion of the Lord on this, our world. The Sun Christ crucifies himself on our planet Earth in order to give life to everything that exists. After his death, he resurrects within all creation in order to ripen the grape and every grain. The law of the Logos is sacrifice.”

This cosmic universal dramatic orchestration is also mirrored in the Akiti (Zagmuk) New Year Celebration in ancient Babylon, observed when the Sun enters Aries (or at least did 4,000 years ago) at the Spring Equinox. Sacred space, temples and traditions from all over the globe revisit the symbolism of this very ancient passion play of the birth and death of the sacrificial Sun King — an archetypal observation embedded deep in the psyche of humanity. When the mass conversion to Christianity was taking place, the entire tradition and its customs were rooted in local “pagan” methodologies in order to make the absorption into indigenous cultures more widely accepted…
