I am attempting to reach a Saint. Obviously I can reach one through prayer. Or I can reach one through the Middle Pillar, according to:
Rising, Sirius. The Saints and Magick: How to invoke the saints of the Catholic Church to serve you (pp. 51-52). Kindle Edition.
After I reach the Saint, I want to try one of Damon Brand of GoM 72 Angels sigils
So I do not have as much time as I want to study all of this stuff. Is it better to know how to form intent and focus my will or is it better to learn what hour and day is best to make my spell.
Ideally, I will want to learn both, but I have time constraints.
(if it turns out I should study planets, what is a good primer on planet magick?)
There seems to be plenty on the Middle Pillar so, no problems getting what I need there. At least not so far anyway.
Should I study planets or tarot or just study kabbalah first, as that seems to be the bases for everything (including the Middle Pillar) so far as I can tell.
