Clavis Journal 3

“At 216 pages, the new volume of Clavis features an outstanding grouping of authors and image-makers. Articles in this issue include ‘Our Lady Babalon and Her Cup of Fornications” by Gordan Djurdjevic, and esoteric astrologer Austin Coppock’s paean to dark and baneful starlight, “Death From Above”. Three adepts of the German magical order Fraternitas Saturni give voice to the magisterial arcanum of Saturn in the article ‘Listening to the Voice of Silence’. We are pleased to include ‘Rite of the Graal Evolute’, a previously unpublished ritual and art by the late English magus and scholar Andrew D. Chumbley. Gemma Gary invokes Bucca, the Cornish Witch-God in image, rite and magical exposition; Robert Hull examines the Qabalah of Quantum Physics in ‘Unity and Division’. Michael Howard explores the role of the first artificer of metal in ‘Masonic Mysteries of Tubal-Cain’, and Henrik Bogdan considers the esoteric role of Secrecy, the very flower of the Occult itself, in occult orders. In addition, we are also pleased to include rare occult texts relating to cheiromancy, witchcraft and the lore and magic of Mandragora – the Shrieking Root of the sorcerers.

CLAVIS 2 journal features haunting and provocative visuals from many contemporary artists imaging the esoteric: by Benjamin Vierling, Madeline von Foerster, Richard Kirk, Carolyn Hamilton-Giles, Tom Allen, Hagen von Tulien, Jamie Sweetman, Billy Davis, John Kleckner, Carlos Melgoza, Joseph Uccello, Raven Ebner, Brigid Marlin, Timo Ketola, Ilyas Phaizulline‏, José Luis Rodríguez Guerra, and many more.”

“Clavis Journal announces its debut issue, now available for pre-order. Our inceptive ‘Journal of the Art Magical’ contains both modern, innovative occult content and scintillant magical artifacts of centuries past. We are proud to feature the work of Johnny Jakobsson, that being “Nebiros et Ars Necomantica” an extended investigation and reverie on the grimoire-patrons of the corpse and burial ground. Martin Duffy examines the gnosis of Judas Iscariot and his place as a witch’s Saint of Opposition in “One Beyond Twelve: The Thirteenth Spirit, Judas and the Opposer”. Craig Williams issues an important magical caveat emptor for the would-be cartographers of the qliphotic wastes in “Daath Gnosis”. A lunar-qabbalistic magical operation entitled ‘Shaddai’s Gate’ is presented by the pseudonomous Frater AI. The mysterious Grosvenor manuscript is examined by Ben Fernee in “The Commonplace Book of Grosvenor”.
