To have the best viewing experience, you should find a location away from city lights and light pollution. Dress warmly, as December nights can be chilly, and bring a comfortable chair or blanket to sit or lie on.

Star Magic and Star Witches

One “branch” of Star Magic is Astrology, the art of foretelling the Future by knowing the ways of the Stars. An ancient Mage would never distinguish Witchcraft from Astrology as the system was born and evolved together as one. The Three Wise Men who predicted the coming of Jesus Christ were in fact Powerful Mages from Mesopotamia who studied the ways of the Stars.

Becoming a Star Mage or a Star Witch one must begin to know the ways of the Stars. In Magical Recipes Online we’ll give you tons of Lessons on Astrology and in Star Magic too. Another thing about Stars Magic is that’s so fun! We love looking at the night sky. It connects us wit the divine.

The Celestial Mage

Ptolemy, the Greek founder of Modern Astrology & Astronomy, wrote that the Gods peer down at the earth from between the Celestial spheres.

The Celestial spheres (or cosmic spheres, or celestial orbs) were the fundamental entities of the cosmological models developed by Plato, Aristotle, Ptolemy and later Copernicus and others. In these celestial models the apparent motions of the planets and the other stars are accounted for “by treating them as embedded in rotating spheres made of an aetherial, transparent fifth element – aka quintessence – like bright gems set in orbs. Ptolemy stated that while this happens, stars sometimes slip out of this gap, flashing towards the earth. Shooting stars are hence an indication that the Gods are now paying attention to whatever you would ask for.
