So, you have developed an interest in the Occult and Magick but don’t know where to start? Well this series is for you. In it, we will be looking at the basics of Occult thought and Magick with an emphasis on practical application. This Magick Primer Series will cover topics such as Banishing, Invocation, Evocation, Sigils, Meditation, Offerings and much more.
The following is a list of suggested places to start your Magick learning and is more aimed at a General introduction to Magick than a deep and exhaustive look at Occult thought. The list will obviously show a bias to authors and ideas that I naturally gravitate towards, but I still think it will serve as a great starting point.
