Has anyone else heard about the elements being in different directions? Before Crowley, Air was South and Fire was East according to the book “Practical Elemental Magick” https://www.amazon.com/Practical-Elemental-Magick-Esoteric-Tradition/dp/190529719X
It is mentioned SO briefly, just a sentence I believe, but ever since I read it I have felt like I know some amazing secret.
I used to call the corners and all that jazz. Every year or so, it seems, I like to throw away everything I knew (or have read/been told) and get my practice back to basics based on how I feel. I’m not feeling the elements lately and my work turns out just fine but there is always more to learn. Anyways…
If someone were to publish vast amounts of magickal knowledge, wouldn’t it be wise of them and reasonable to assume that they obscured it? And what an ingenious code he (Crowley) created - the switching of 2 elemental directions, which could have such a powerful effect on the potency of the uneducated and unready practicioners’ workings.
