5.0 out of 5 stars A Philosopher's Stone for Transformation, February 3, 2010
This review is from: Graeco-Egyptian Magick (Paperback)
Although a book for beginning spiritual transformation, Graeco-Egyptian Magick is not a "beginner's book." This system of magic relies on ancient primary sources from Greece and Egypt of roughly two thousand years ago--sources like the Iliad, the Odyssey, and magical papyri of Greece and Egypt. Unlike other systems that focus on the seven planets and archetypes, Mierzwicki looks to the origins of astrological magic and self-transformation.
Mierzwicki explores and compares side-by-side differing ancient views of the planetary symbolism: associated colors, days of the week, as well as positive and negative properties of each planetary influence. Instead of depending solely on the names of the biblical god, the format developed in Graeco-Egyptian Magick honors the deities of old and their planetary associations: Selene (Moon), Hermes (Mercury), Aphrodite (Venus), Helios (Sun), Ares (Mars), Zeus (Jupiter), and Kronos (Saturn).
Many chapters are devoted to planetary rituals during which you can invoke each planetary sphere and draw its energy into the self by interweaving chant, ancient invocation, color, scent, and meditation. One of the most helpful features of this book is that Mierzwicki describes others' experiences following the transformative effects of each planetary ritual; in this way, you have the opportunity to validate and understand your own experiences.
Mierzwicki takes you through step-by-step for creating rituals which will help you explore your rich inner life and help you on the road to your own empowerment. If you already feel your inner strength, these rituals will add depth, clarity, and balance to your ways.
---Tess Dawson, author of Whisper of Stone: Natib Qadish, Modern Canaanite Religion.
