From the skies of ancient Babylon, to the manuscripts of formal medieval angel magic, and even to some modern uses of crystals, the seven classical planets have been an incredibly significant part of European magic for almost as long as records have been kept.

The material focuses on introducing the Seven Planets - Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, The Sun, Venus, Mercury, and the Moon - outlining their natures, the forms of their operation and significations in the world, their occult virtues, and their uses in magic. Seven simple magical workings - one for each planet - are suggested, combining traditional early modern planetary magic, cunning-craft, and modern folk magic; including charm bags, spiritual baths and candle spells.

This class-bundle is designed to be useful to absolute beginners, veteran sorcerers, and everyone in between. It will provide foundational knowledge and training on some essential questions for planning and executing magical operations: which planet or planets are best to appeal to for a particular issue? When exactly should I time my magical operation? How can I get the most out of my astrological sorcery?

This class-bundle includes:

            An illustrated lecture of two hours duration
