St. Cyprian of the Black Cat Bone

Today on the feast day of St. Cyprian and Sta. Justina on the 26th of September Sacred Alchemy Store is offering St. Cyprian of the Black Cat Bone as our offering in honor of this enigmatic and precious saint, patron of necromancy and one of many saints dressing well the garments of folk Catholicism. 

The charge has been made in the course of the nine days of Cyprian, prayers to the left and to the right along with anointments and fumigations at midday and midnight hath been done to bring in the Sun at midday and the Sun at midnight to enforce the feline sorcerous juices resting within this icon balancing the Sun both white and black equally. And in truth the black cat bone is not a metaphor here, but the nail that serves as the axis for this sorcerous offering and carried within the saint.  

St. Cyprian is amongst those powers that those of us from the old persuasion might deem a ‘witchcraft saint’, a terminology that tend to generate a great deal of resistance amongst contemporary practitioners of occultism and paganism simply due to a Catholic bias rehearsed in a disenchanted postmodern reality saturated with opinions and truism that can never hope to be anything but an echo of lies.

Some would argue that Christianity is anti-paganism, yet,  a term like ‘the old faith’ or ‘old religion’ was in truth, as Emma Wilby stated, in her erudite studies about the Cunning folk on the Isle of Albion, a reference to Catholicism in the time of reformation. The Catholic Church or more correctly The Roman Catholic Church was a continuation of Roman ways, mediated this ‘new’ vision ascribed to Ieshua then adopted as a prophet for a particular way of interpreting theology and theophany in a Catholic or Universalist way. Certainly a lot has changed since then and the Roman Catholic Church went through several schism and reformations in itself. 

Christian saints might be seen as similar to the sadhus of India and the prophets of Islam and Judaism pertaining to the Christian mythology, where saints continued metaphors, allegories and teachings either born by their own example or continuing legends like genii loci related to the magic and mystery of a specific location.  A saint is not ‘something Christian’, a saint is also something dead, something vibrant, and something that holds a particular virtue – and in the case of St. Cyprian wespeak of the virtue of necromancy and magic. The magic of the Eucharist, of sacred and barbarous words, the virtue resting in plants of healing and how to raise the dead to speak, in the manner of Ieshua himself allowing Lazarus to raise from the grave in the manner of St. Cyprian rising the dead and cause death to speak. 

Beneath the Christian veil, a saint will always carry a naked truth, a virtue that can be recognized for what it is, no matter if the virtue is dressed in a bishops cloak, the rags of a beggar or the leaves of nature. A saint can be ancestry, virtue and genii loci, metaphor, allegory and memory. For more about this, please do read the article about Sorcerous Saints.

 And so, it is with great pleasure we offer 2 – two - St. Cyprians which will be finalized in this night up for sale. This St.Cyprian carries a powerful and unique sorcerous charge utilizing the black at bone as vehicle for its necromantic potency. Along with the saint comes a guia of Exu washed in honour of the ‘left’ and a black rosary, this one dedicated to another sorcerous saint, São Bento, that mimics the mystery and shock embedded in the icon of St. Cyprian and a secret prayer bringing in a strong Saturnine river to this Sun at Midnight.

The ‘firmeza’ of Quimbanda

Quimbanda is a cult centred on the direct and head on interaction with spirit, hence developing mediumistic skills and capability in spirit trafficking is integral and vital to working Quimbanda. Possession is a phenomenon that intrigues and also scares. After all we have all seen movies like The Exorcist and other horror thrillers giving visual spectacles to how hostile spirits can take over the human body, mind and soul in intrusive and fatal ways. But possessions do find a counterpart in the shamanic rapture as much as in the prophet whose soul is filled with angelic light that makes him or her prophetic. Possession is not only about the full given over of your material vessel to a spirit that in turn uses the faculties of the medium to engage various forms of work. Inspiration, dream and to be ‘under the influence’ are potentially valid and worthy avenues for connecting with spirit. Yet another avenue for good spirit trafficking is the communion, or what Jake Stratton-Kent ca

A Quimbanda FAQ

In this article I will try to answer some questions concerning Quimbanda that surfaces with frequency. Questions concerning how to work this cult solitary and somehow dislocated from the cultural climate of understanding here in Brazil are frequently asked as are questions concerning the magical tools, such as guias, patuás and statues, available to the general public.

The Celestial Wine of Grace

Versão em Português In De Vita Libri Tres Marsilio Ficino (1433 – 1499) tells us the following: “But it would be safer for your health if you would mix with the Solar, things that are Jovial and at the same time Venereal – Venereal moisture especially, such as the water and juice of roses and violets, because it moderates the Solar heat.” (Ficino: 313) Ficino saw the human race as predominantly Solar, as also the authors of Picatrix and Kitab Thakarit Al Ishkandar saw the human race; but as the Sun can be scourging and make the field for its interest barren in the same way a Solar excess can make the human body and soul dry and lifeless. It is therefore important to temper the royal rays of the Sun and its’ natural release of Solar vapor as a way of inducing harmony between the parts of the human complex. Ficino was probably inspired by Arnoldus Villa Novas (1235 – 1311) treatise on the varieties of wine, Liber de Vinis, a work that details a selection of wines that can be utilized
