Magick, Arcane, Occult, Esoteric
Consider this extraordinary and powerful thought – that Time and space are not fulfilled til human consciousness has expanded into ethereral space. No wonder that Heaven worlds are watching Planet Earth with such intense interest, for it is the training ground of the 10th Hierarchy, the divine archetype, and mankind has now reached the tremendous threshold when he can take the refining step into cosmic consciousness, not merely for his own redemption but for the fulfilment of the Universe! This planet is a precious seed-point from which a transformed universe can issue forth when the attribute of God, the Hu-man Being, the shining one, through his own initiative and decision lifts his vibration to merge with the Ocean of Life. This is the great step in evolution when Mankind by conscious choice in inner activity opens soul to the creative activity of the all-present spirit.
The keys to the Outer Gateways, the modes of unsealing the Cells of Set or the Tunnels of Tutulu repose in the Sovereign Sanctuary of the O.T.O., their use varying according to the levels of consciousness involved. The only way of acquiring these keys is, in a sense, by becoming them. This is to say, their acquisition depends upon the ability of the initiate to mould his astral consciousness in forms — frequently zoötypical — of the magical zone he intends to penetrate. Zos (Austin Spare) used mainly feline forms, Crowley on the other hand often utilised bird shapes such as the hawk and the ibis. The distinction is significant. The temples of the Egyptian cat goddess Bast were dedicated to the Moon and to the Meon (the Stars). The temples of the Horus hawk or falcon, to the Sun; those of the ibis-headed Thoth to Mercury. The magical formulae corresponding to these levels are, respectively, of the VIII°– the IX°+ , and of the VHI°+ , 14 but this analysis reveals but a single interpretation of such formulae. The solar attribution, via Horus, might for example with equal validity be referred to Mars, thereby changing to XI°– the formula for Horus.

Thelemapedia – It’s a free encyclopedia of thelema. So, fully endorsed by the O.T.O (make of that as you will). It’s got some pretty good articles though if you’re looking to learn about Crowley’s most popular subjects and deities – Aiwass, Hadit, Nuit and so on…
Gnostic Warrior – the gnostic gospel is an invaluable part of understanding the esoteric and mystery tradition, not to mention the illuminati (if they exist). This is a good resource on all kinds of subjects in the gnostic vein, and they are quite readable articles.

“The Vortex” subreddit – A very strange subreddit with a strong focus on the esoteric. It seems that only one poster posts here, the same person (‘SINGULARIS’) that occupies no less than 10 moderator positions all by himself. He advertised it on the ‘magick’ subreddit, with the following statement:
Think of it as a primordial stream of group chaos magick. Think of it as the lucid waters of the Moon, a seed planted in the night of our digital Monad. A gateway into a Moonchild egregore.
The Vortex is designed to collect all of the positive energy we wish to project that doesn’t seem to fit in the concise parameters of other subreddits. It is sort of a wishing well, a fountain of creation and positive momentum that follows the whispers of Sophia into the night that I hope we can make manifest collectively.
Power Before Wisdom – this guy has a whole blog about how to “learn magick (REAL magick) the dangerous way”. Apparently he’s got a lot of readers so that must count for something, dah?
