Website Profile: MAGICAL ALMANAC is Bob Makransky’s free monthly ezine of astrology and magic for thoughtful, intelligent people who are seeking something deeper than the usual New Age - astrological fare. The purpose of this ezine is to show people who live in a workaday world that magic is real; and to explain how they can bring magic into their own lives without radically altering their present lifestyles.
Magic can be defined as the intentional manipulation of luck by means of the deliberate cultivation of intuition. Magic is not a matter of altered states of consciousness, or of ooga-booga rituals to invoke spirits (although it does involve such things) . Rather, magic is a matter of liberating ourselves from our social conditioning by learning how to operate on intent – direct knowing and acting – rather than by thought. Thus magic can be considered a form of psychotherapy – of dehypnotizing and rehypnotizing ourselves to release the obsessive fixation of everyday life.
Our society teaches us that magic is an escape from reality. On the contrary, the practice of magic is a way of coming to grips with reality directly; of seeing the way things really are, and acting on that understanding.
The knowledge of magic is as ancient as humankind. Moreover, all of us already knew it as children; but we have forgotten it in our rush to make a buck and to fulfill our society’s expectations. The time for magic has come around again. Magic and astrology will rise once more if the human race is to survive, not to mention prosper.

The Magician’s Creed
You are the people,
You are this season’s people –
There are no other people this season.
If you blow it, it’s blown.
– Stephen Gaskin
I. The human race is in imminent danger of self-destructing and dragging our mother earth down with it.
II. There will be no miraculous salvation due to so-called Mayan 2012 prophecies; or Jesus’ or the Mahdi’s return; much less from the irresponsible governments, corporations, media, and academics who go us into this mess in the first place.
III. The theory of probable realities states that each individual person decides the fate of the entire universe. If you truly choose to save the world, you will wind up in a probable reality in which the world is saved.
IV. The only chance for survival – not to mention prosperity – is for each individual to reject society’s mutual suicide pact and make saving the earth and future generations their NUMBER 1 PRIORITY (as opposed to something they may get around to someday) . This is the magician’s equivalent of the Bodhisattva’s oath.
V. Rejecting social conditioning means eradicating all trace of self-pity. Only by clear, sober, objective thinking – as opposed to the endless loop of yada-yada nonsense emanating from society – can each individual save him/herself and the earth.
VI. This type of thinking is based upon what each person’s heart tells them. It is different for everybody; and everybody has to find their own answers for themselves by examining their own habitual thoughts, moods, and concerns minutely. To do this magicians use various techniques, including:
a) techniques of self-analysis such as Active Imagination and Recapitulation.
b) techniques of transformation such as resorting to tree spirits and the earth.
c) techniques of hopefulness such as Creative Visualization.
VII. Detaching from society’s conditioning of self-pity necessarily implies taking complete responsibility for oneself rather than wallowing in helplessness or daydreaming. To do this magicians:
a) channel their own spirit guides themselves for information and advice;
b) go to nature spirits for validation rather than seek the approval of other people or society;
c) become as self-sufficient and frugal as possible, including growing at least some of their own food and reducing their needs to the bare minimum.
VIII. The goal of magic is to make everyday life more dreamlike; to be able to feel comfortable in situations beyond one’s control. Feeling relaxed and in good shape even in the midst of a maelstrom is called “enlightenment”. Enlightenment doesn’t mean light as opposed to dark; but rather light as opposed to heavy.
