This is wrong


#1

In Koetting’s Evoking Eternity, a sigil of Belzebuth is given there. But that is the sigil for Bael (Baal):

In the Grimoirium Verum the sigil and description of Belzebuth is given as well:

Belzebuth appears as a giant cow or a ram. Bael appears like a cat, a man and a toad.

My question is why the crap are the sigils used the wrong way? They are NOT the same entity.

Some occult authors do things like this on purpose to separate the real practicing magician and the one who is only there to have the book look cool on their shelf.

S. Connolly, in her “Key of Ocott” purposely gave and incorrect magical square. Her thought was that if people were paying attention and actually doing the work they would notice the typo and fix it, if not they could look at a pretty picture.

I have not idea if E.A. did this or if it was a simple mistake. Either way good catch, it means that you are doing the work.

Thanks. This is exactly why I chose to learn from spirits directly.

E.A. has addressed this concern a million times.

The douchebag publisher of that book, Joshua Seraphim, fucked up the images and layout of the tome to undermine E.A. (and admitted it)

When we release his Complete Works in eBooks, everything will be correct.

While it’s wise to contact spirits directly for information, you CAN trust E.A.'s work in general, because he does NOT add blinds, or complications, to confuse magicians.

Thanks, Tim!
