✣The Seven Stages of Alchemy 𓂀𓆙 April 07 2023, 0 Comments

Alchemy is an ancient art that has fascinated and mystified scholars, philosophers, and seekers of knowledge for centuries. While its origins can be traced back to Hellenistic Egypt, it has been practiced and studied throughout the world, influencing various esoteric traditions. Though often associated with the pursuit of turning base metals into gold or discovering the elixir of life, alchemy's deeper meaning lies in the spiritual transformation and enlightenment of the practitioner. In this blog post, we will explore the seven stages of alchemy, which serve as a guide to understanding this complex and fascinating process.

  1. Calcination

Calcination, the first stage of alchemy, represents the initial breakdown of the ego and the burning away of impurities. It is often symbolized by fire, as it involves the destruction of old patterns, beliefs, and attachments to material possessions. This stage helps us let go of the superficial and the unnecessary, allowing us to focus on our true spiritual essence.

  1. Dissolution

Dissolution follows calcination and is associated with the element of water. It represents the process of dissolving the barriers between the conscious and unconscious mind, allowing for a deeper understanding of our emotions and innermost desires. In this stage, we confront and accept our suppressed emotions, ultimately leading to a sense of emotional freedom and a better understanding of ourselves.

  1. Separation

The third stage of alchemy, separation, involves isolating the valuable elements that have emerged from the previous two stages. This stage symbolizes the need for discernment and the ability to differentiate between what is useful and what is not. By separating the valuable from the worthless, we refine our spiritual essence and prepare for the next stage of transformation.

  1. Conjunction

In conjunction, the fourth stage, we merge the purified elements from the previous stages into a new, balanced state of being. This stage is marked by the unification of opposites, such as the masculine and feminine energies within ourselves, leading to a sense of wholeness and harmony. Conjunction invites us to embrace our newfound wisdom and integrate it into our daily lives.

  1. Fermentation

Fermentation is the fifth stage of alchemy and represents a spiritual rebirth. It is often symbolized by the process of decay and new growth in nature. In this stage, we introduce new spiritual energies that have the power to transform our consciousness. The process of fermentation brings about a renewed sense of inspiration and creativity, enabling us to move forward on our spiritual journey with renewed vigor.

  1. Distillation

The sixth stage, distillation, involves further purification and refinement of our consciousness. This stage is associated with the element of air and symbolizes the need for ongoing spiritual growth and development. Through distillation, we refine our spiritual essence, stripping away any lingering impurities or attachments that may hinder our progress toward enlightenment.

  1. Coagulation

The final stage of alchemy, coagulation, represents the manifestation of the purified consciousness in the physical world. It is often symbolized by the Philosopher's Stone, a mythical substance said to possess the power of transmutation and immortality. In this stage, the practitioner embodies their spiritual wisdom and divine nature, becoming a living testament to the transformative power of alchemy.


The seven stages of alchemy serve as a powerful roadmap for spiritual transformation and enlightenment. By embracing the principles of alchemy and undertaking the journey through these stages, we can attain a deeper understanding of ourselves, our place in the universe, and our connection to the divine. As we navigate the challenges and revelations of this transformative process, we ultimately discover our true nature and unlock our limitless potential.

✣Journey Through the Esoteric: A Guide to Different Occult and Mystical Traditions 𓂀𓆙 March 20 2023, 0 Comments

Esoteric traditions refer to a wide range of spiritual, mystical, and occult practices and teachings that are intended for a select group of individuals who are initiated or have a deeper understanding of the hidden or secret aspects of reality. These traditions often involve the use of symbolism, ritual, meditation, and various other practices to help the individual attain higher levels of consciousness, spiritual insight, and wisdom.

Esoteric traditions are often associated with mystery schools, secret societies, and occult groups, although they can also be found in various religious and spiritual traditions. They often emphasize the importance of personal experience and direct revelation, rather than relying solely on dogma or external authority.

Some of the key characteristics of esoteric traditions include a focus on inner transformation, the use of symbolic language and imagery, the exploration of hidden or mystical aspects of reality, and the cultivation of personal spiritual practices and disciplines. Here are some of the most widely recognized esoteric traditions:

  1. Hermeticism: This tradition is based on the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus, a legendary figure in ancient Greek and Egyptian mythology. Hermeticism emphasizes the idea of "as above, so below," which suggests that the microcosm reflects the macrocosm, and vice versa. Hermeticists also study alchemy, astrology, and other forms of esoteric knowledge.

  2. Alchemy: Alchemy is an esoteric tradition that emerged in the Middle Ages and was concerned with the transmutation of base metals into gold and the search for the Philosopher's Stone, a mystical substance that was believed to confer immortality. It also refers to the transmutation of the self, or the process of spiritual purification and transformation. Alchemy is associated with the use of symbols and the practice of meditation and ritual. Alchemy emphasizes the importance of symbolism and ritual, and involves a deep understanding of the natural world and the principles of chemistry.

  3. Kabbalah: This Jewish mystical tradition emphasizes the study of the Tree of Life, which is a symbolic diagram of the universe and the human psyche. Kabbalists believe that there are multiple levels of reality, and that by understanding the structure of the universe, one can attain greater spiritual awareness and connection with the divine.

  4. Gnosticism: This tradition emphasizes the importance of direct spiritual experience, and the idea that there is hidden knowledge that can only be accessed through personal revelation. Gnostics also believe in the concept of a divine spark within each individual, which can be cultivated through spiritual practices such as meditation and prayer.

  5. Thelema: Founded by Aleister Crowley in the early 20th century. Thelema is a religious and philosophical system that emphasizes personal freedom and individualism. It is centered around the idea of "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law," which is interpreted as meaning that individuals should follow their true will or destiny. Thelemites also emphasize the importance of personal freedom and individual responsibility, and practice ceremonial magick as a means of spiritual development.

  6. Theosophy: An esoteric tradition that emerged in the late 19th century, and was founded by the writer and spiritual teacher Helena Blavatsky. Theosophy seeks to unify the teachings of all religions and spiritual traditions into a comprehensive system of knowledge. Theosophy also emphasizes the idea of reincarnation, karma, and the unity of all beings. .......................................
  7. Rosicrucianism: This is a spiritual and philosophical tradition that emerged in Europe in the 17th century. It is based on the teachings of a mythical figure called Christian Rosenkreuz and emphasizes the importance of spiritual development and enlightenment. Rosicrucians believe in the existence of a secret order of initiates who possess esoteric knowledge and who work to bring about the spiritual transformation of humanity.

  8. Shamanism: This is a diverse set of traditions that is found in many different cultures around the world. Shamanism emphasizes the importance of connecting with the spirits of nature, and often involves the use of ritual practices such as drumming, chanting, and plant medicine.

  9. Taoism: This is a Chinese philosophical and spiritual tradition that emphasizes the importance of living in harmony with the natural world. Taoism teaches that there is a universal force or energy called the Tao that permeates all things and that individuals can cultivate this force through various practices such as meditation, qigong, and tai chi.

  10. Sufism: This is a mystical tradition within Islam that emphasizes the importance of direct experience of the divine. Sufism places a great emphasis on the use of music, poetry, and dance as means of achieving spiritual ecstasy and union with the divine. Sufis believe in the existence of a hierarchy of spiritual masters who can guide individuals on their spiritual path.

    These are just a few of the many esoteric traditions that exist in the world. Each of these traditions offers a unique perspective on the nature of reality and the spiritual path. By exploring these different traditions, we can gain a greater understanding of ourselves and our place in the universe. Whether we choose to follow one particular tradition or draw from many, the esoteric path offers a wealth of wisdom and insight for those who seek it. The study and practice of esoteric traditions can provide a rich and transformative path for spiritual growth and personal development. By exploring these traditions, we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us, and cultivate a greater sense of connection with the divine.

Monday, 06/06/2022 was  the day the planets and the numbers aligned opening a doorway to the Ancient Gods and their incredible magical powers.

06/06/ 2=2=2/=6.

6-6-6 is a master Venusian formula of magical self-love. Serving yourself serves others.

This is a powerful inner alchemy. 

In honor of this most magickal day  we have performed a limited number of rituals for our clients  aligning them with the incredible powers of this planetary gateway.

Here are some photos and a short video from the Ritual Event in our Temple. Our 6-6-6 Magick of the Ancient Gods Planetary Ritual was a huge success.

The Starfire Temple was electrified with the presence of these ancient forces. A truly magickal night. 

About our Rituals

We briefly show only the preliminary stages in our media posts. The actual ritual is never meant to be publicly seen as it involves the calling up of magical forces in a highly charged, ritually sealed environment using invocations and magical formulae whose secrecy is their power.  This protects both our clients and ourselves. 



All candles have been cleansed, prepared with magickal oils, herbs and gemstones and sigilized with magickal formulas known only to us.
