Doing some makeup before I go into town. I tried to make myself look slightly alive as I’ve been at home sick for the past few days, cooped up in my room with no sunshine.
I failed however, now I just look like a corpse with make-up on… But so do a lot of people, so at least I’ll fit in :P

Well. I’ve done my bit to hinder the ebola-chan-loving-racist-shits on /pol/.

I have been working with deatraylasercrazy, igamuinacra-merenptah and xowx  to upload a ton of sigils big enough to sink the titanic right into the middle of the action. on 4chan and on facebook. 

Great job everyone who did something (i know a lot more of you did). Keep doing it and lets hope they stop what their doing soon before they do some serious damage - if they haven’t already.

A little rant of no consequence whatsoever concerning my mother and the occult

In the last few months I have discovered that my mother doesn’t know what hermeticism is, doesn’t know what sigils are, has never heard of Aleister Crowley, doesn’t know anything about Egyptian mythology (and seemed to think it was devised after the time of Christ… O.o). However, she has heard of the golden dawn (though I don’t think she knows anything about them beyond that they where an occult order - I don’t think she knows it is still existent). And, she knows a little bit about kabalah (or so she says).

She is usually really open minded with anything supernatural/mystical but if we talk about any of this stuff (she knows I study the occult) she always seems overly skeptical and uninterested. Says she follows the Tibetan Buddhist philosophy now (which I must say has A LOT of similarities to various occult beliefs) and that all that astral stuff and other entities are a distraction - all part of the illusion. Well sure, if you do believe that everything that is not the pure god essence is in the mind/illusion - it doesn’t make other entities any less real within their realm of existence, even if they are an illusion overall we are in the illusion too, so we are both illusions - does that make us any less existent? I can get the ‘everything is illusion and we must overcome it to reach enlightenment’ thing (i believe it myself on a similar level - it definitely appears throughout occult philosophies) but when I tell her about other entities (angels, demons, elementals, egregores, you name it) she seems to think they don’t exist at all and uses the whole illusion thing as the reason. But that’s not the same thing!
Also she contradicts herself as she claims to have seen a demon-like spirit that had been summoned by some amateur satanists (sounded like they didn’t know how to banish it). She has also known spirit mediums and such that channel entities to talk through them.

She also more or less thought sigils (sigils for a specific intent, not spirit’s sigils… I didn’t even go there) were a load of poppycock. I explained the theory behind them briefly. She said that the sigil would only affect the mind of the person who believed it would work. I said - what about external influences? Angels, demons, god-forms etc involved (if it’s that type of Sigil)? What about the universal mind theory - that out unconscious minds are all connected somehow? What about the belief that our unconscious mind is a gateway to the astral and mental planes where every human being has access through their unconscious? (I could have gone on for hours giving all the reasons and theories, but I didn’t)

…she changed the subject. 

Anyway, all said and done, it’s really not that bad. Mildly frustrating, sure - but at least she’s not a fundamental Christian who thinks I’m worshiping the devil :)

A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term  “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
