Persian Burj Nameh and Stellar Magic

Persian Burj Nameh and Stellar Magic
by Nabarz


There is a review of Persian Burj Nameh (Stellar Magic) in this issue of Silver Star:

Stellar Magic: A Practical Guide to Rites of the Moon, Planets, Stars and Constellations by Payam Nabarz, Avalonia 2009, 210 pages, illustrated.

A wonderfully useful and scholarly grimoire compiled from both a myriad of diverse ancient cultures and sources (Egyptian, Hebrew, Greek, Roman, Persian, Arabic, Zoroastrian, Mithraic, Gnostic, and Sufi) and many modern magicians and poets and esoteric sources as well (even Crowley! He pops up everywhere these days!). It is both an informative history of myth and star lore and a practical guide and workbook for practicing stellar magic. There are opening and closing rites to frame invocations of Orion, Sothis, Perseus & Andromeda, Cygnus, the Pleiades, Draco and the Great and Small Bears, as well as the traditional Seven Planets and the Zodiac. A fascinating read and a genuine contribution to the rediscovery of the Secret Science of the Sages. I like revivals like this!
(There is a substantial extract on the 12th page of this issue of Silver Star.)
