LXXXI
The Quareia Magician’s Deck

LXXXI – The Quareia Magician’s Deck is a unique magical tool for 21st century magicians.

LXXXI is a collaboration between magical artists Stuart Littlejohn www.stuartlittlejohn.com and Cassandra Beanland en gb.facebook.com/cassandrabeanlandart and magical adept Josephine McCarthy josephinemccarthy.com

All of the paintings are original works of art in oil, acrylic, or water colour, and are the result of three years painting and collaboration.

The deck has 81 cards, a mystical number that relates to completion, and it is divided in to four realms: the Divine Realm (red borders), the Inner realm (blue borders), the physical world (green borders) and the realm of death and the underworld (black borders). The further away from humanity a being or place is, the less human it becomes. This is reflected in the deck, and can teach a magician a great deal about how beings function and why.

Quareia
a new school of magic
for the 21st century

The quarry is where one finds precious materials that can be fashioned into beautiful things. Extracting something from a quarry is a slow and arduous process, but what emerges is something of exquisite form and beauty. Just as the raw turquoise is carefully searched for, extracted, shaped and polished, so too the magical apprentice is brought from the depths of darkness, is shaped, polished and transformed in to the rare jewel of a real adept.

Quareia, the new school of magic for the 21st century, was created by adepts Josephine McCarthy and Frater Acher; two European magicians with solid magical reputations in their respective fields. After many months of discussion on the state of modern magical education currently available, the two magicians came to the conclusion that there was a need for an open free training course that would have the full range and depth of complete magical training.

The curriculum of Quareia takes a magical apprentice from the beginning of magic to the level of adeptship and beyond. The course has no superfluous text; there is no dressing, no padding – everything is in its place and everything within the course has a good reason to be there. There are no teachers: the course is designed specifically for lone exploration, experience and study. There is no one to do the work for you, or to break it down in to easy bits, no study buddies, and also no teachers to take advantage of the student or play power games with them. The success of the Quareia student comes from hard work/personal application, inner contact, and the necessary study work. It is a very old way of teaching and completely side steps all of the degeneracy that magical schools can become entangled in.

Quareia teaches the skills that underpin many different forms of magic, rather than teaching specific magical styles or methods: through learning the structural underlying techniques, forms and skills, the Quareia magician will be able to access any form of magic and understand it.

– The Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea (MOAA) –

The Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea (MOAA) is a modern expression of the Golden Dawn tradition which was founded by Nick Farrell and his wife, Paola.

It is an international Order with its headquarters in Rome and Temples forming in Ireland, England, Slovenia and South Africa. We intend to open temples all over the world.

Although we are a traditional secret society we operate two public programmes. The first is the Correspondence Course which places its teachings in the hands of the people who would not be able to join a working magical temple. The second is its Antica which are public rituals and workshops organised by its initiates.

“The visualizations here draw their imagery from classical grimoires and Qabalistic philosophy. Plus, they have a specific and useful goal. Each visualization takes you on a journey into the symbolic realm of an archangel, where you are introduced to the entity’s sigils and symbols and other sacred imagery before encountering the archangel himself. Each visualization builds upon those before it, until the aspirant has been led through the seven circles of heaven and has established a personal link to the archangel that governs each one. At the end, the aspirant will have learned to recognize the images, seals and symbols they will encounter in the Solomonic and other advanced systems of angel summoning.

Such guided visualizations are certainly absent from the medieval texts about angels. So, why should I urge anyone who wishes to work with angels – even Solomonic practitioners – to follow the instructions in this book? Simply put, this book is based upon the same principle I described above: safely establishing first contact. It accomplishes this without resort to the full-fledged summoning ceremonies intended to call the angel down to the physical plane – an advanced practice the grimoires tend to jump into without preamble.

This book even includes simple rituals by which you can submit petitions to the archangels in times of need – and these rituals are not entirely removed from the methods of the grimoires. Therefore, working through the steps outlined in this book can serve as a wonderful bridge between “square one” and the fully adept practices of angelic summoning.”

“…This is the state where the Inner Traditionalist becomes the Ritualist and the Ritualist sees the power behind the words. Magical acts become like riding on top of a speeding train of words, and gestures towards your spiritual destination . . . it is vital for people practicing the Ritual Tradition to read and understand this book and bring back to their systems the techniques that are contained within it.”
Nick Farrell

Magical Knowledge III – The contacts of the Adepts is a book that is a springboard for those who are immersing themselves in the depths of Western Magic. Working at an adept level means working in depth in the inner worlds and bringing that work out into the physical world through ritual, utterance and focused thought. This book facilitates these actions and bridges connections between the inner interface of magic and its outer manifestations. The book looks in depth at magical methods used in various ancient temples, the inner mysteries of the Abyss, the workings of the Metatron Cube, the magic of Fire, the power of Utterance and the contacts of ancient deities.

Reviews:
The Cauldron (149 Nov 2012)
“… shows working as a real adept means delving into the inner world and bringing through results into manifestation in the physical world. Easier said than done. Her book provides a wealth of information on how to do this and is also laced with her own down-to-earth and commonsense approach readers of her books have come to expect from somebody with many years of ritual experience.” Highly recommended

‘Mr Channing plays Trotsky to my Lenin, and Luther to the most holy of Chaos Orthodoxies.’ – Pete Carroll

In the year 1564, Dr John Dee published his work, Monas Hieroglyphica. Its central symbol represented the unity which was the gnosis of the monotheistic aeon.

Now over four hundred years later, Anton Channing has published his long awaited debut work Kaos Hieroglyphica, within which he expounds a new symbol, the Kaos Hieroglyph. This symbol represents the plurality and freedom of the New Aeon. This work of magical alchemy draws on such diverse material as Thelema, the Chaos Current, the Maat Current, Timothy Leary, Witchcraft, Paganism, the Hermetic Tradition, Taoism, Shamanism and the author’s own Pineal Gland.

The Kaos Hieroglyphica offers the reader interpretations of Hermetic symbolism in a way that is both insightful and relevant to New Aeon Magic.

Peter J Carroll. December ’04:
Infamy! Infamy! Anton has surely got it in for me, in these two hundred pages of relentless revisionism. Here we see heresy of the most outrageous kind, Mr Channing plays Trotsky to my Lenin, and Luther to the most holy of Chaos Orthodoxies.

Methinks I may excommunicate him with extreme prejudice for revealing the secret asymmetries and imbalances in my Eight Magics which have propelled me to global notoriety, undeserved riches, and domination of the metaphysical realms.

May Baphomet dam his loins and may Eris make his balls explode, for he hath proposed a counter-reformation back into the antique concepts of soul, ‘being’, and symbo-realism.

He even proposes, and mark this, an alternative order completely lacking even the most basic dominance hierarchy, terrible secrets, and bloodcurdling initiation rites, yet he seems such a reasonable guy.

I have arranged to have a drink with him to see where it all went new-age shaped.

In the meantime read the book, I found it both provocative and entertaining but I have to warn you about the shockingly high ‘is’ count. That in itself provides a key to the symbolistic conceptual style of the author.

“Here you have a book that will help you, and an author whose views you can respect. More than this, you may safely trust her practical guidance, which is drawn from a long and varied experience of working alone and with others. She is a gifted teacher, perceptive and critical: perhaps more important, she is also human . . . there is no question but that the magical path is a hard road that requires dedication, discrimination and a solid dose of common sense . . . if you are determined to follow the magical path, and if you employ these three qualities, you will be hard pressed indeed to find a better guide than Magical Knowledge.” RA Gilbert.

Magical Knowledge book I is the first in a series of three that takes the reader through the bends and twists of serious magical study. This book tackles some of the more pressing issues surrounding the early quest for knowledge from the world of magic, along with techniques, exercises and warnings for those ready to dip their toe in the scalding hot water of power.

Using her usual no nonsense down to earth approach, McCarthy outlines in depth some of the rarely tackled issues and problems that face a serious modern magician, offering advice and reflections based on 30 years of practical work.

The book follows no specific magical path; rather it takes the reader to the layers of consciousness beneath such paths and shows us the various techniques, powers and dynamics that underpin most Western Mystery schools and lodges. The reader is shown how ritual actually works, what an inner contact actually is, how to make visions work, how to turn an object into a magically charged implement, how to read Tarot, how to clean and protect yourself, and most importantly of all, how to spot the bullshit.

Magical Knowledge – Book II: The Initiate. Josephine McCarthy (Mandrake). The Western magical tradition has been shrouded for many years un secrecy and obfuscation giving rise to baseless speculation and providing succour to charlatans and mountebanks. This book, written by a practising magician and exorcist, lifts the lid on the ‘secrets’ and reveals in plain language some of the rarely discussed aspects of magical praxis. The contents are varied and wide-ranging including accessing the inner planes, working with angelic beings (not in the Doreen Virtue way!), the ancestral dead and the realm of Faerie, signs and seals, dealing with inner world parasites, magically relating to the sacred landscape and the ‘sleepers’ in the land, the esoteric meaning of birth and the ‘death vision’, the Tarot as a magical working tool and much more. The author is an occultist with many years of experience under the belt of her ritual robe. Currently she lives reclusively on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon but previously she has taught and led magical groups in the United States and the UK. For that reason she knows what she is talking about and can truly write from a position in the Arte of experience and authority. Highly recommended. The Cauldron #143, February 2012.
