Hope you guys like the new season 4 intro piece! Kelly and I talk about our trip to Hannah's Casino Resort in Cherokee, NC and then we do bumbling geomancy reading. Kelly also talks about her disturbingly violent Full Moon in Scorpio dreams that caused her to miss a day of work.
Kelly and Aaron David hit up the following locations with the ghost box: Helen's Bridge, Oakley Park, Gashes Creek Cemetery, Rice Pinnacle and Bent Creek River Park! Let us know what you hear!
Kelly finds out that her's and Aaron David's rural farm house deep in the mountains of Mars Hill was the former HQ for the Gurdieff Foundation of Western North Carolina. We cover Kelly's Crowley dreams from when we first moved in and talk a bit about the Great Work. At the end of the show we do a ghost box session which had quite a few surprises for us!
Check out the Gurdjieff Foundation of Western North Carolina here.
Aaron David and Kelly talk about events and dreams surrounding the Mars / Saturn conjunction and their appearance in the skies of Mars Hill including a dream in which Zazel speaks to Aaron David. We also talk a bit about the upcoming Blood Root Mars mojo bags; and we finish things out with a really short ghost box session! If you hear anything you want to let us know about, or a shout out just in general, tweet at us @charmthewater or contact us at email@example.com!
Mercury retrograde and a Saturn / Mars conjunction has made work life and home life a bit stressful. Aaron David commences with the beer and addresses it head on in this intimate episode of CtW.
Outro Music: Venus Shaver by Shilpa Ray.
Aaron David and Kelly go over the events since February 14, 2018, Aaron David's initiation into the Sphere of Hod. Strange occurrences at the house, a lottery number dream, qabalistic obsessions, and most importantly, the witch bowl and hexagram 18.
Aaron David reads Agrippa's commentary on magic squares, followed by an update on the book binding quest. We then get into a piece on Crowley's I Ching sticks by Achad Ocher 583 and go into a reading of Crowley's Liber 216. We end up on a rambling examination of Hexagram 43 and how it could relate to the stock $NEPT.
Aaron David talks about his dream from the last Lunar eclipse in which he was shown black mirrors and heard the phrase "inexplicable darkness" spoken to him. It turns out as well that the magic mirror plays heavily into his work with the Goetic spirit Seer. We also hear a reading of Aleister Crowley's "The Wizard Way", followed with a tale of an experiment in money magic, the stock market and the company called Neptune.
Aaron David gives Hua-Ching Ni's commentary on Hexagram 38, which is most pertinent in this episode, in which he also attacks Christianity, through Nietzsche's Antichrist. We move on to a parody of Christianity by Reverend David, followed by the Orphic Hymn to Hermes and Liber Israfel.
Aaron David and Kelly talk about their experiences with a shadow ghost girl since Aaron David's initiation into Yesod. We have a lot to research yet - was there a young blond girl named Rachel murdered in the Mars Hill area? Could she even be one of the bodies in the unmarked graves beside our house? Whomever she is, she is a ghost, a once living human girl, and this episode is to honor her. To honor Rachel.
Aaron David talks about a dream quest into the Underworld and then shares Terence DuQuesne's version of PGM XXIII, which is a missing section of Homer's Odyssey, provided by Julius Africanus. This is followed by DuQesne's commentary from his book Jackal at the Shaman's Gate.
Merry ho-hos! Aaron David and Kelly are back this Xmas Eve for another shit show! Sit back by the Yule log and enjoy stories of unimaginable bowel movements!
Aaron David and Kelly are joined by Roejen Razorwire of the Project Archivist podcast! Roejen shares stories with us in the season of the witch, so get your pumpkin-spiced whatever, light up some candles and turn the lights out for story time with Roe.
Here we have a reading from John Bell's article on Yesod, a reading of Crowley's poem, "Moon Wane", and talk around Kelly's heart attack and the life alterations that's to bring both of us. The article on the Masonic 3 Pillars I couldn't think of was none other than Tracy Twyman's Hidden Hyperspace Kingdoms for the Elite: Daumal’s Mt. Analogue, Disney’s Plus Ultra Tomorrowland, and Ayn Rand’s Atlantis, which is worth a read.
Catch this special simulcast on Project: Archivist as well! Huge thanks to Roejen Razorwire for the invite to participate in this interview and for giving me permission to share it on CtW! Roejen Razorwire and Aaron David chat with E.R. Vernor (Corvis Nocturnum) about his revised book, "Lilith: From Ancient Lore to Modern Culture". Find Eric and much more cool stuff at Dark Moon Press.
First a reading from The Third Chinese Patriarch, or Hsin Hsin Ming, followed by Kelly's and Aaron David's musings and weird experiences from just before the time of Aaron's Lunar Initiation.
