What are some good occult books to start with?

Entry level type of stuff.

 No.1617


 No.1618

>>1616
-for Qabbalah:
Dion Fortune's "The Mystical Qabbalah"

-Magic 101:
Agrippa's books of occult philosophy
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Books_of_Occult_Philosophy

-Rituals:
Look for explanations (golden dawn or thelema?) on the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram

-Tarot
Can't think of anything entry-level, I like Jodorowsky's The Way of Tarot, but it's a big brick

-Meditation

Check all of that first, then move on to something more advanced

I'd definently recommend 'Ssotbme Revised - An Essay on Magic'

Discussions around Science, Religion and Art break down unless the fourth factor, Magic, is recognised.

Magical thought is described and contrasted with Science, Art and Religion. The dynamic relationship between them is explained. Modern magic and its role in the 21st century is outlined with respect to practices ranging from ritual magic, through alchemy to New Age therapies.

Prometheus Rising is a great starting point if you suffer from the inability to the believe in anything.

The truth is out there!

 No.1632

This is a good source for non-Hermetic Qabalah. It gave me a wider perspective.

 No.1633

My recommendations for starting out in Chaos Magick, in no particular order:
* Condensed Chaos by Phil Hine
* Advanced Magick for Beginners by Alan Chapman
* Liber Null by Peter Carroll
* The Psychonaut Field Guide by Bluefluke
* Principia Discordia by Malaclypse the Younger

For Qabalah:
* The Chicken Qabalah by Lon Milo DuQuette (beginner)
Followed by…
* A Garden of Pomegranates by Isreal Regardie (intermediate)

 No.1635

Chaos magick is cool but it seems like all the books on it are really basic?
