After a long sabbatical Kelly and Aaron David return to talk about the initiatory path and its inherent devilishness, as well as the hidden power the dark side offers us as we step through the Gate of Capricorn, where the Lord of the Gates of Matter, Child of the Forces of Time awaits us, offering the transformative power of dissolution and death.
Sagittarian spell cubes, transformational chutzpah and the vision of Aaron David as a dead batman as consequence to his Jupiter conjuration in the graveyard.

Kelly’s back from New York and shares a bit about a vision that happened to both her and her daughter. Also, American Airlines is actively seeking to run its customers off apparently. We then go into a long discussion on Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC), also called Ghost Box, and what conclusions we can draw from our own experiences with the dead. Why do they always need help and talk of the Abyss and ask for Light? Is the lack of light the lack of a vehicle in the afterlife?
Kelly attempts to get to Buffalo, NY and Aaron David plans to survive bachelor life. Also weird past life stuff and Mars stuff.
Kelly offers up another Moroccan Minute and then we jump right into an interview with Thai Occult author Peter Jenx! I’m just going to tell you to go to Peter’s site and buy his books. The quality is fantastic, with tons of full page color photographs. Don’t miss the rare amulets and occult items on his site either!
Kelly and I muse on the current happenings of Venus retrograde in Scorpio and briefly speculate on the pale man with the round face wanting our seeds…
Another Moroccan Minute with Kelly, a stop by the paranormal and scientific worlds, and then we jump into the results of Aaron David and Kelly’s first scryer / operator experience in which they had a surprise visit from two spirits!
A return of Kelly’s Moroccan Minute, Science, It’s Science and This Week in the Paranormal! Following that, we jump into our ritual activities with the Hygromanteia, datura, a black mirror and Rachel the life-sized shadow puppet the night of the Full Moon Festival. It was one to remember.
CtW introduces a a couple of new segments and then Aaron David gets into a fascinating conversation with Soror Mimm and Frater MTO! Contact them at Ye Olde Magic Shoppe here!

Aaron David and Kelly review the events since the Saturn initiation which have been a roller coaster of events culminating in a hospital stay.
Entering the Cave of Castillo by torch-light Bernie Taylor takes us on the journey of transformation.
Bernie Taylor is an independent naturalist, thought leader and author whose research explores the mythological connections and biological knowledge among prehistoric, indigenous and ancient peoples. His works in these areas include Biological Time (2004) and Before Orion: Finding the Face of the Hero (2017). Before Orion is premised on Joseph’s Campbell’s hero's journey monomyth that is at the core of stories worldwide among indigenous peoples, the ancients, and our modern society. Before Orion explores a deeper root for this monomyth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds through Paleolithic cave art from 40,000 years ago. Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us. Taylor addresses a profound archaeological elephant in the room by opening up an uncharted place in our history, which points to the cultural ancestors of mankind in western North Africa. Before Orion will change the idea of who you think you are.
Aaron David and Kelly look back at there trek through the 7 Spheres on the Tree of Life spanning exactly 777 days.
We start out with another piece Aaron David wrote on Chaos, followed by Kelly's reading of Thomas Vaughan's essay in Lumen de Lumine, or a New Magical Light, 1651. Aaron David and Kelly then get into the events around the Saturn initiation of last Saturday, August 18th.
CtW hears from Taylor in Minneapolis, who initiated into Yesod with Aaron David and a small group of other people back on September 23 of 2017 during the Blood Moon Tetrad in Virgo Revelation 12 Woman and the Dragon celestial event thingy...
