The Commonplace Magic Book

I am going to steal Eva’s idea here, I already keep a research journal in scrivener, that is highly organized and allows me to save whatever I like, though I don’t like to use links in it, and often just save an image. I like the organization and the fact I don’t need to have a file system on my computer for images I want to save, but I think it’s a neat idea so this is my common place journal to drop all the random occult things I think I might want to use later. Most of it will be stuff I’ve already used, and that’s why I am still hanging on to it- it worked and I liked it.

I expect to have a mixture of balg quotes, internet resources and screenshots from books and it’s going to be a mess of disorganization and things I just might want to be able to find again later.

Interesting little chart I found on pinterest. I tried reverse image searching it and did locate the website it originated on, but I get spammed like crazy to install things and can’t get to the actual website. :woman_shrugging:

This is my go to Carromancy chart. Most of the symbols you find in wax tend to be subjective imop, other than how the candle burns- things like the trail of tears, wax flowing like waterfalls etc I find to be good, but things like shapes and what not, I really think are up to the individual to decipher.

I use this seal of Solomon quite a bit when I have trouble evoking the spirit of a person/their higher self/their ancestors/ my higher self etc.

And this one wraps it up for today. I’ve got something like 300 pages saved in my journal so this is just the tip of the iceberg

I had it printed from my computer at one time, but when I moved home at the end of May, my magical supply trunk got left with the boyfriend, so I just use it on my phone or computer screen without printing it now, depending on how I feel in the moment.

I don’t usually pay attention to planetary hours, but coincidentally several times I’ve wanted to use this seal, the time I planned for the ritual was the right timing for that when I looked it up out of curiousity.

I.g. the last time I said ok I am going to do this around 9 pm. Told myself that all day, because I had my kids that day, then some other things, then half an hour before planned ritual, I said hmm. Wonder if the hours for this fall into a time frame I could do this ritual. That particular day the planetary hours for Venus started at 8:52 and ran through the middle of the 9pm hours.

Figure my internal witch, must be more in tune than I am. :woman_shrugging:

Something I was interested in (Why I generally see them laid out the same in images) but never thought to google up or took the time to contemplate for long.

A list of demons under Azazel that I either have worked with, or plan to work with. I don’t wish to copy bulks of text here, because what I found on each came from other sources, so I’ll just share the most comprehensive list of them and their powers at the bottom. I haven’t summoned all of these to know if there are any inaccurates, I just have a page for each in my research journal, whether I’ve confirmed the information yet or not.

I was looking up information for a new gemstone bracelet I received recently, and realized I have several Cat’s Eye gemstones, and never recorded their information. Nice, now I’ve got one more missing piece in my book.

I also have worn a 1.1 carat diamond and it has surrounding smaller stones, since 2013. I have considered using it for something magical, but never bothered to look up what it’s actual properties are…I am a little disappointed chocolate diamond is listed as a color here, because I also have a heart shaped necklace made with those.

@Lady_Eva :slight_smile: Didn’t think about how people couldn’t click her name since I quoted from a place you can’t see.
