They also break the rules and talk about Fight Club...

Note: This version does not contain the introduction and discussion of the exercise. A version with the introduction as well as the meditation will also be available for convenience. This meditation was written by The Green Mushroom Council member S Shane Thomas with Narration by Dave Ardrey, Amy Ardrey & Chad, and Production and Sound Design by Luxa Strata.  S Shane Thomas blogs about discovering and learning magic at https://buildingthephilosophersstone.wordpress.com.  This meditation is intended to guide you through the positive and negative traits of the thinking, feeling, intuitive, and sensory parts of the self.

Eclipse and New Moon Bonus: Deipnon
Join Luxa for a short introduction and a sound magick track.  It’s a sort of sonic offering to Hekate, a  Deipnon, or feast, which was traditionally given to her during the dark  moon. The track includes a shoal of sigils and some cut up poetry, as  well as audio from several related operations I ran as part of its  creation. The beat is symbolic of Hekate leading the spirits of the  unavenged and wrongfully killed up from Hades, which the Ancient  Athenians thought happened during the liminal time between moons. The  Deipnon was a means of placating them. For Notes about this track and other info: https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vS-HSMXhHWWQkOsel54ihirnsfmOTBWIkTbeykKEIDr-iToDyDt_w200jYDDBZ__94nQqYtxeyvaEYo/pub Thank  you so much for listening to the Lux Occult Podcast!

Sound Magick and Bonus Nonsense: Sun and New Moon in Taurus
This special bonus mini-episode features sound magick created by Luxa as part of a New Moon working as well as an introduction with some of the rationale that went into its creation.

Bonus: Winter Solstice Nonsense
This is a special bonus track I put together as I meditated on the Solstice and the Planetary Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter that, as I write this, is set to take place just a few hours from now! To be honest, I sort of made it for myself- to solidify my intentions going forward, but I hope others will find it enjoyable. This track features some ambient textures and beats, as well as some vocals of people celebrating different traditions and of me conducting bibliomancy, and reading nonsense and poetry. Even if it is after the solstice when you hear this track, I’m hoping to encapsulate a bit of the aspirational energy of this time. I hope you like it! For full notes: https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vQ8fU2awMPZqFGessDbxoZlevvQx5remy5AlLaVpJouaTIwfrREKRp7vhMrXmAu3DKeBpwklUtblKtb/pub P. S.
