Group Overview: Introduction: The Temple of Luna is an authentic school of the mysteries and advanced magick.
The Temple of Luna does not generate or accept any monies for its services. Nor do we have a political or nationalism belief or mission.
12-12-17: One the central issues facing any alternative religion, pagan, or belief is tyrannical behavior towards chaos magi; usually based on a self serving agenda. Many witches and magi have been the brunt of police investigations because of their beliefs and the false accusations of others. Unfortunately, a lot of times, its other witch covens and lineages who think they know what is correct and desire to stop or end any other attempts at free expression.
One of the most criticisms, chaos magick gets from outsiders is that we are a sex or devil cult. I do not necessarily believe in party style, sexual worship of a goddess, but, I do think each person should decide for themselves. All aspects of life are part of what we do in our religious and practice. You cannot divorce them.
Of course, there are witches with puritanical views. That is absolutely fine as long as those who are different are allowed to do. I for one have had inquiries from people who don't know a thing about magick; and yet, boil down the practice to the most mundane expressions. Most magi are capable of fulfilling relationships. And like Mickey Mouse can attract so called love. You may not like it, but there are people out there who are upfront about what they do. Sometimes, that is a disturbing experience for those who have specific or fixed ideas. What we really need to do, is let the Goddess take care of the situation. You don't need to spell anyone. Remember, if they are wrong, the threefold rule will take effect.
Of all the many students inquiring about the Temple of Luna, most do not come to meetings. Fear and apprehension may be chief reasons. I do know, the aspect of imbalance in your life will manifest when doing magick. Our initial talk is always a bit of roller coaster ride. Though, is it not true, it is your choice? So if you are puritanical; chaos magick is not for you. UNLESS you have a pathway which supports such views. We take a look at the whole, not a limited piece of who you are or a practice. Blessed Be.
12-10-17: Meeting with alchemy initiates in Louisville, KY.
11-2-17: The Day of the Dead is a time of reverence, holiday, and memory of all our ancestors and kindred spirits. May we live in light always.
10-22-17 Greetings! Most of us are searching for a way to improve our lives free from Abrahamic philosophy or xianty. This is a way which allows your own choice of path and development. Most everyone who has been initiated into the ToL have greatly changed and enhanced their lives through higher awareness and chaos magick. We invite you to request consideration. We are looking for very good people who fit into a specific open ended magical belief. As such we are open to most free thinkers and psychics. Males are also accepted depending on the needs of the Temple, although are emphasis is in creating High Priestess.
10-11-17 The Temple of Luna welcomes the new energies now bathing earth in a rebellious aspect of change. As we approach a more harmonious place within, our external life will improve. The Temple of Luna has several tiers of entrance into its profound teaching. We identify strongly with earth based magick and philosophy and as such consider each to be sacred, pure in intent, and capable of much growth. Most students will come with some knowledge of wicca and other arts, but the emphasis on chaos magick requires a change of intent and strong desire to work with body, mind, and spirit. We embrace a sense of freedom, and as such each may express how they please. Initiation is offered to those with demonstrated magical ability. While we do not feel the present day environment prompts weekly meet ups, we do have potential for group meetings. Each initiate of our teachings may determine which way this is manifested. Solitary or not, all initiates go through a one on one training. This is a phase in which a selection must be made as to connection with chaos magick. Not everyone makes the cut. We are glad to assist in anyway possible. In truth we are not exclusive, though specialized in body magick as it relates to spiritual experience. There is no messiah, or escape from your chosen path; as such we do not pretend to have a way for you. If you like what is offered, that is good; though we accept all beliefs as sacred and good.
10-5-2017 Full Moon: Let us be blessed on this day of fruition and accept the gift of love from the Goddess. Play and be merry. New students are welcomed.
9-10-2017: The Temple is open to a variety of tantric/energy styles and as such, we work with the conceptual energy paradigms of Austin Osman Spare, and Pascal Randolph.
9-9-2017: All aspirants to the work of the temple are given one on one instruction. After completion of such training; there is the possibility of work within a group context. Most chaos magi are currently solitary and while we encourage group participation, we do not regulate any students choice. According to many sources, the current situation points to one on one instruction. The concept is not new and is the traditional method used until contact can be made.
9-8-17: The temple focuses on the modern interpretations of the nine noble virtues, though we are not a northern tradition, we do glean teachings from all faiths. 1 Enoch and other obscure revelations are jewels. However, each student must find their way to the temple.
9-8-2017: All students go through diligent veting. All inquiries are handled gseriously and given much effort and labor. Keep in mind, we go through periods of a lot of inquiry; we may not be able to work you right this minute, but patience is a positive virtue. We have a proven track record of authenticity and performance. The Temple is a school of magism, and while we respect conservative approaches, ours is modern and open source. Meaning we do everything, but identify with nothing. In other words, Join the Wild Party...and Let Bacchus be your guide.
8-21-2017: Today is a fabulous solar eclipse, and perfect for magic. I am a chaos magi and on occasion teach. If you have interests in the occult or paranormal, contact me for further information.
The Temple is open to new members who are open minded, focused, and healthy. Our methods are a combination of ancient to very modern approaches to magick. You will be thoroughly instructed in defensive, life enhancement, and prosperity through ceremony and magical exercises.
You will be given email instructions and then, person to person meetings with the High Priest of our order.
The Temple is planning to go the next phase by applying for 501c status, but, as of right now, you have the generosity and expectation all will be respected and accepted.
What we are about is deeply spiritual. As such, we take our studies seriously, and most of all do expect you to do your part. All practices are carefully instructed; and especially designed for your personal needs. Your confidentiality and ours is essential. Your openness and our ethics are crucial to attaining your goal.
May you be well...and blessed
The Temple offers authentic instruction to interested students who are wanting magical skill sets.
The new year brings much promise of happiness and prosperity. Learn to use authentic magic for providing service to others and yourself, safely, and sanely. We teach traditional chaos magic so be prepared for the Goddess.
Each student of magical science must learn how to work with creative forces. It is fairly easy to apply the technology to obtain a result; but very difficult to gain expertise and focus. Our temple does not engage or allow binding or curses of other covens or people. Our position is always one of occult law and justice.
The new year is sure to provide many spiritual opportunities for everyone. The coven is evolving in concept, as we find more students are at beginning stages of exploration, but heavily self defined. That is a good thing and helps with guidance and exploration of authentic magic. There are many different ways to approach life, love, and magic. You can create....and we will be glad to work with you in your self appointed quests.
Learn the secret art of magick safely and in a powerful way. Contact for in temple practice.
Reclaiming a lineage from the ancient past, we invite students who are searching or exploring the deeper mysteries of magic and ceremony. Join us in a dedicated temple of chaos magick.
Much has happened in a few short weeks, which require further statement of our mission. Simply stated we are a mystery school doorway to authentic self discovery and greatly enhanced magical skills.
If you find us, we are interested in discussing how we might work in a collaborated effort.
We offer highly effective methods of magic based chaos magic paradigms.
To know, To will, To dare, to be silent
Nothing is true, everything is permitted.
The annual party was amazing. A artistic troupe of people showed up. Very magical.
Now that the Halloween is over we concentrate on students who are presented for initiation. In a rare opportunity the TOL is conducting open initiation. The outer court of the current is open.
Each new initiate will get a gift from us. A great way to show you WERE THERE.
There are many during this Halloween season who seek information about the Temple. Todays message is to them.
We are happy to discuss your goals in magic. We need your help in understanding we can only meet in person if there is trust.
Our message to humanity is about our mission of providing a fast and effective pathway to personal illuminism. We are not Illuminati however, but we respect ALL traditions as sacred to those who seek wisdom.
Each is free to choose. Let us be who we are; and you will find our attitudes as open and positive towards yours.
Some people might feel the commitment we require is too much. Well, its hard work, and the most you can expect is a maybe. There are no guarantees in life.
We do love the human body as an example of the Goddess. Our ceremonies vary from sky clad to full on robes. It is all a matter of where your heart is in life. If you think bodies and the things bodies do are taboo or fearful; then, you will find a slow pathway is more appropriate to you.
On the other hand, if you are one of those very gifted students who seek the most and the best, no matter what; we are interested in discussing things further.
We are a free spirited group of exploratory magi and witches.
A truly great person sees the Goddess in everything. Blessed Be Frater Infinity
The temple is authentic sovereign school of initiation as opposed to xianity religious worship. Our instructions from the Goddess require to provide a serious study of magick and mastery of life without the disrespect of egotism or judgement.
The portals of initiation open and close in many ways. All novices or Newby are encouraged to accept a free tarot card reading and sacred gift.
As such, we screen all students in a gentle compassionate way design to give spiritual insight leading into initiation.
Our work is simply customized to you. Our chaos magick section is a elite Corp of tried and proven magi who are dedicated to service.
MAGICK AND SEXUALITY:
Prospective temple or coven members often have concerned about sexual derivative ceremony. No authentic temple or coven requires sexual play. You have every choice, as long as others are respected for their choices.
Erotic magick is a technique of spiritual illumination and is not to be confused with hedonistic lovemaking. Ancient teachings oppose any coercive or manipulation of students. You should have a happy heart and passion for any such work. If you do not, simply pass it on.

The Temple operates as a connected mystery temple whose sole and only purpose is the illumination and freedom of each. Truly you are a star. Our selection process is demanding and is meant only for serious students, regardless of path of orientation.

The newest approach to magick will involve two streams. The return of the owl god or Atlantian mysteries; and the path of the stellar hosts. Both paths have equal pschic requirements and skills. Tne Temple of Luna has a special opportunity for those who are willing to the huge amount necessary to gain such skills and abilities. We heavily stress esctasis and all sensory methods of trance induction. As such we are closed to those with issues. People who have interest in tantra and sexual arts but have little magical training will be encouraged to learn the basics of magick first. Once one has a strong foundation; then a more problem or issue free travel through the dimensions and realms can be made. We are only interested in those who are self chosen; you know who you are and it is our function to anchor the mystery and provide a place for your workings.
5/26/2013 Learning the art of magick is a self chosen path. If someone really teaches you magick; they are teaching you how to think, observe, and make your own decisions not theirs.

First of all, all students should be able to spend at least 5 hours every two weeks for meetings and one on one teaching. If a student shows ability and potential, they are invited to group work; which is much more intense and productive. Frater Infinity will instruct all beginning students, to insure their foundation is strong. Keep in mind, we have protectors who will work magically to allow entrance for those who are sincere and compassionate.

We only work with women and men over 20 years of age, due to legal requirements. If you are under 18, we do not have suitable programs for you, sorry.
We have many hundreds of members scattered throughout the internet. Now it is time to start a real life temple in Fredericksburg area. Are you interested? Contact us.
We have the following positions available:
We have a new Temple, the Temple of Luna Fredericksburg. We offer free ten week course on ceremony design and basic magick. Once completed you are may wish initiation into the temple.
A bit about the temple. There has been temple workings in rural
Virginia for many years. Due to the conditions and the fact, our beliefs may be misunderstood by more conventional religious bodies such as xianty faiths; we operate as a closed or confidential activity.
Personal freedom is one of the strongest majicks we have to offer and as such we honor those who are different than us; as we expect and demand the same of those who would be our friends or associates. In truth, we feel a low profile is necessary so as to allow us to work in confidentiality and privacy.
To be honest, we find all religions have their own unique beneficial beliefs and philosophy. Ours is oriented towards a type of worship which is purely creative and dependent upon the views of the aspirant at the time. All beliefs change through history and we do not have a permanent dogma.
What we do have to offer is one on one instruction and eventually group workings. As such, we are looking for people who are self- reliant, mature, and open hearted. Self-reliant to be capable of self governance, mature in the ways of life (not necessarily age dependent) , and open hearted to learn new things and study subjects foreign to our own.
This alchemical process of becoming involves initiation and regular testing of ability. There is however, no pass or fail; what we do know is that passionate and regular practice will upset the applecart of fixed belief.
One should not inquire if they are happy with their present condition and do not wish to change. You certainly do not want to contact if you are involved in study with someone else, and merely want to complete a assignment by checking out what we do.
In the first place, we are an initiatory org; and the temple represents a sacred place to us. The temple space is temporarily anchored where we set up altar; but the portal is permanent and has been created many years ago. One of the first things we want to teach is how to properly enter and exit the portal. Once you are conscious of such interactions, many options exists. Deeper initiation allows one to explore creative aspects of the Divine Goddess or creative forces.
The process of majism involves: the elemental, planetary, sol, constellation; and distant nebula. One scales these dimensions and eventually has the will power to determine much in life; formerly reactive.
Discipline and honor of other students are always important. There is no level of of superiority or control within ones spiritual journey. The temple is however a sacred but somewhat mundane anchor with certain rules. An initiate of ours, has the responsibility of teaching proper ethics and morality without creating a controlling situation.
Another big difference, is we will work with all students, except those who are aggressive and have not learned the harm caused by unfocused intention. We will not work with those on psychiatric drugs or egoic belief in domination of others.
The work is all about mastering the subjective field of self; meanwhile understanding the objective side of self without subjective mastery is very limiting.
Your participation in this work is conditional. We allow, you to select. You may leave us anytime for any reason. Each is a star unto themselves.
Respect of the human condition is important as we know, lack of respect with bodies, is a sure sign communication with other beings will be filled with disrespect. We do not own other intelligences, though they are formed to assist us, we do not own them beyond our intention they participate in our creation.
Ultimately we learn to be a law unto ourselves, not based on egotism but on the fullest responsibility for creative majism.
The Temple of Luna (Fredericksburg) invites you to inquire and to consider learning our teachings. Blessed be.
