Example text

The counsel Diana received was that "to rise she must fall ; to become the chief of goddesses she must become a mortal". So in the course of the ages, when the world was made, Diana descended to earth, "as did Lucifer, who had fallen". Now, as the god of the sun, Lucifer 'falls' in the course of every year, as the sun declines into winter. Then he becomes the Lord of the Under­ world, as did the Egyptian sun god Osiris. This also has a more esoteric meaning, when the light 'falls' by becoming enmeshed in the world of manifestation.

Occultists see the universe as a great scale of vibrations, of which our physical plane is only one ; the one to which our physical senses respond. Because the writings of such nineteenth-century Theosophical authors as Madame Blavatsky, and the many books on modern Spiritualism, have tended to familiarise readers with the idea of the astral plane, it is not always realised that this is in fact a very old magical concept. Never­ theless, Francis Barrett in The Magus, published in 1 80 1 (one of the classics of ceremonial magic), explains it as one of the fundamental ideas upon which magical practice depends.

There is the vast kingdom of nature-spirits, which contains many ranks, some lower than humanity and some much higher. The nature spirits were divided by medieval occultists according to that element of Nature with which they had affinity. The earth spirits were called gnomes, the water spirits undines, the air spirits sylphs, and the fire spirits salamanders. These spirits of the elements should not be confused with the semi­ intelligent entities called artificial elementals. The latter are formed from the elemental essence of the astral plane, by the power of human thought and desire acting upon that essence.
