Hermetic Library Newsletter #112

check daily for the hot freshness

Howdy everyone! Here’s a public summary of my activity this week ending March 17, 2023!

Today is the annual recurring Moorish Tag Day, relevant to Moorish Science Temple.

This week I did a bunch of work on Hermeneuticon and pages for Aleister Crowley, T Polyphilus, and William Butler Yeats. Plus the usual weekly stuff like almanac, propaganda, calendar, zine, updates, quotes, reviews, and more!

And, as always, I worked on various other things I’ve not specifically mentioned on website, blog, and more … Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting and being a guest of Hermetic Library. You help me be of service and make the work of the library meaningful. Especial thanks to each and every ongoing Patron on Patreon, Subscriber at Bandcamp, and Member on Ko-Fi for making the work of the library possible!

It’s Moorish Tag Day!

Consider giving extra support today to those creating things you value with an extra gift to help them keep going.

That doesn’t have to include me, but I’d sure be grateful if it did.

It’s also St. Patrick’s Day, of course; so raise a pint of your beverage of choice!


Here’s upcoming calendar and astronomical events, plus the daily Thelemic Tephilah practice, for the coming week, March 17–24. It’s a big week, since the equinox and the new Thelemic year are upcoming!


Follow Calendar on the web and rss. And, if you have a current or upcoming event to share, add it to the Hermetic Library Calendar!

First, belatedly, Happy Π Day!

Next, also belatedly, I want to wish you a happy Ides of March, which was this week, and share with you this reminder, from me to you, particularly timely, but also perennially useful motivation: Have a dagger, find a Caesar!

I’ve slowed down posting to one item a week because I’m low on things. I more than filled the previous issue, but now I need more submissions for this current one, if it is to happen, as planned, on Aphelion 2023.

Things to check out at Hermetic Library

And on the blog

All the quotes, reviews, &c. (But not OG, Events Calendar, Zine, &c.)

And, not for nothing, but be sure to check out all the Omnium Gatherum posts on the blog, which I don’t list individually here! If you’re only following along on social media, you’re over 100 posts and two weeks behind already. If you’re neither following on social media nor directly on the blog, you’re missing tons of stuff! To keep up, consider grabbing an RSS reader, or adding a bookmark to your browser, to check daily for the hot freshness.
