A Magickal Universe

Once one begins upon a path of Magick, sooner or later one is bound to ask “But how can this be”? When they started, it could easily have been with an incredulous and skeptical mind. A go on a Ouija board at a sleep over, ordering a set of tarot cards from a book club news letter, a borrowed copy of Crowley from a school friend, or a chance encounter with a real, live witch. As often as not, the new Mage doesn’t really believe that anything will happen, when they first cast a spell or throw some runes. The first successful demonstration of the occult is often as memorable and paradigm shifting as losing one’s virginity. One has taken one’s first steps into a…

Well, that just about wraps it up for God.

A few months ago I met up with THE wonderful and lovely Tommie Kelly for coffee and a chat, during which I must have mentioned that I was an atheist. A few days later, in his podcast, he brought that up. He said (I paraphrase) that a wizard professing himself an atheist struck a discordant chord with him. He did mention, though, that often when the word ‘atheist’ is used, there is often a misunderstanding of what is meant. So, to clarify, I mean it literally: “A person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods”. Now, there are a few things to unpack there. For a start, if you google ‘gods’, you get God, and that provides us with: (in…

It was derived from a misheard name from a book, and from my love of legend and my affinity to the elven race. Like Bilbo, I was in love with the idea of elves, the type described by Tolkien and Gygax. I was fully under their glamour. I must confess I never used it much, but I was fond…

Welcome to the Adventures of Sepherion le’Fey

Welcome to my site. So, what’s going on here? Sepherion le’Fey is the nom de plume of Eoin Kerrigan. The purpose of this site is to allow me to wax lyrical on all things Magickal. Eoin Kerrigan has many interests and while many fall inside the venn diagram of “Magick”, quite a bit does not. Most of those who are interested in my magickal musing’s are unlikely to be captivated by my career as a software developer or the various sports I play. Likewise, many of my friends and colleagues who may be interested in my more mundane activities, are unlikely to be sympathetic to or interested in my more esoteric adventures. Here, I shall focus my attention on one side and fly my Mage…
