Equinox Volume 1, Nos 1-Aleister Crowley
Rating (1-10)- Definitive 10
Pros- It’s a very comprehensive book with various spells and literature along with some interesting reviews
Cons- If you want a book that is solely based on magic and rituals, this isn’t it.
What’s the deal with this Magic Index??
The big deal is simply this, all you need to really start your magic rituals is in this book! I have read many books that go into the Occult and rituals, but this one has some basic rituals and more!
This is simply a book that’s not worth passing up!
There is more to the Equinox than just rituals too!
Rituals are essential to anyone practicing the Art and Science of the Occult but sometimes you need a little more. There are literature pieces in the Equinox that simply can’t be beat!
I continually reread this masterpiece because I always get something out of it. There are poems, plays, reviews and short stories all waiting to be read and understood, each one reaching the depths of the human soul.
Don’t care much for ol’ Crowley, that’s okay too!
There is so much more offered in this book! Crowley basically got the magicians and writers of his day and had them write some of the pieces, so there is something for everyone!
My particular favorite writing in this book was actually not written by Crowley. It talks about a man who wears glasses that show him what people really think. It is an eye opening short story!
Nice piece of History
This book has some awesome historical pieces on it! You can learn a great deal on what the people of the 1800 hundreds and 1900 hundreds cared about.
These literature pieces holds the thoughts and worries and hopes. It is quite interesting!!
First book in a Series of Magical Books
This is just number one in a ten volume set! This book sets the foundation for the rest of the books, which I have to say, is a great series!
Starting out here really helps you get an understanding of all that will happen in the rest of the series as well!
