Magick / Re: Concerning Staff's
« on: August 09, 2007, 07:48:52 AM »
Although I am not yet at the stage where I would have use for a staff, I would like to make one, as to form a connection to it during my training, because I have the feeling that doing so would make the use of the staff feel much more natural to me, once I do reach the stage where I can make use of it.

But I have a few questions:

I want to personalise the staff to me by carving my elemental pentagram (see my display picture) and perhaps a few lines in Latin regarding the staff being used for the glory of God, simply to increase my connection to it and as a reminder of why I do magic.

Could these carvings effect what I can use the staff for? Or would my use of the staff be particular to the kind of elements I charge it with later on.

Also I'm a hermetic magician, if I was to use this in hermetics, and then diverged into another branch of magic later, could I still use the same staff, or would I need a new one?

Sorry if what I've said doesnít make much sense on the topic of staffs, I'm still a bit new to the concept.

As far as I know, the angels are also in God's image; perhaps he was speaking to his angels...

Ah ok, well as long as these typos are minor, I was worried perhaps something major was missing which could cause problems in my training.

Theres a relief

Ah, can you direct me to where you got your copies of the book please? I donít feel especially comfortable learning from misprinted source material.

I suppose it could also be because my version of adobe reader is quite out of date....but I doubt that is the issue.

Magick / Initiation Into Hermetics misprint confusion
« on: August 08, 2007, 09:00:07 AM »
Hey guys, I'm new here. I started studying Franz Bardon's Initiation Into Hermetics two weeks ago.

In part 11 of Initiation I, it is written


"The choleric temper is due to the element of air, the
sanguine temper is due to the element of air, the melancholic temper is born from the water element, and
the phlegmatic one is ascribed to the earthy element"

He states air twice, this occurs in three PDF versions I have including one I got just now from a link on this board, I think it is a misprint because after that he writes
"Each of these four elements, which determine man's temper,"

From what I understand of the elements the Choleric temper would be fire, does anybody know what the deal with this is?
