- Peregrin at Magic of the Ordinary posted some excellent insights regarding potential risks in the Golden Dawn System (and magic in general), in his post "Nine Dangers of the Golden Dawn". This includes ego inflation (understandably high on the list, and probably the most common danger), astral corruption, and incorrect magic, among others. I do not agree with all of Peregrin's points, or indeed that we should be quite as wary, but it's good to exercise caution and realise the very real risks that come with magic.
- Sincerus Renatus at Gyllene Gryningen posted a response to my Sex & The Golden Dawn post, entitled "The sexual teachings of the Alpha et Omega and its supposed relation to the Cromlech Temple". While I do not agree with his findings (see my original post on the matter), I think it's important to share the other side of the argument. He also provides some material not covered in my original post.
- Psyche at Plutonica.net posted a great review of Enochian Vision Magick by Lon Milo Duquette. This book has been sitting on my shelf since its release date, and I haven't had time to get round to reading and reviewing it. However, there is little need for my review, as Psyche's one is extensive, balanced, and highly informative.
- The Galloway Chronicles posted an amusing video of a reincarnation of MacGregor Mathers performing a musical number. Mathers is quite the performer, as he always was.
