Something to keep in mind when extremists of any camp insist that this or that book should never be read because the author was a (insert ideologically based insult here)...

John Winthrop Jr.It's getting on for midnight, so here we go with a new Magic Monday. The picture is of  John Winthrop Jr. (1606-1676), one of the first alchemists of colonial America, member of the Royal Society, and important figure in the founding of the Connecticut colony. The next time someone acts as though occultism consists solely of what was created in England between the founding of the Golden Dawn in 1887 and whenever Gerald Gardner finished penning his first Book of Shadows, I want you to think of this gentleman bending over an alchemical athanor and then checking a few lines in the writings of Hermes Trismegistus. 

Ask me anything about occultism and I'll do my best to answer it. Any question received by midnight Monday Eastern time will get an answer, though it may be Tuesday sometime before I get to them all. If you're in a hurry, or suspect you may be the 354,219th person to ask a question, please check out the very rough version 1.0 of The Magic Monday FAQ here.

I've had several people ask about tipping me for answers here, and though I certainly don't require that I won't turn it down. You can use the button below to access my online tip jar. 

With that said, have at it! 

***This Magic Monday is now closed to new questions. See you next week!***
