Alan LeoIt's almost midnight, so here we go with a new Magic Monday. The picture is of Alan Leo (real name William Frederick Allan), a prominent British Theosophist and one of the prime movers of the late 19th century revival of astrology. 

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.

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!***

Last week, you told another commentor who lived next to a house whose last occupant had died of an overdose that said house would probably never be safe to live in again. Is this true of any house whose last occupant died? I am pretty sure the last person who lived in my current residence was a man who died of old age, and my life has gotten a lot worse since I moved here (I had fairly stable employment before then; in the two years here I've lost four jobs and have had what seems an incredible run of bad luck).

Alternatively, could what I'm going through be some prolonged form of Karmic culmination? I found ADR/WoG, which sparked my interest in occultism, a few months before I moved, and started dabbling in ceremonial magic a few months afterwards.

Also, is it better to do a banishing ritual at the beginning or the end of the day? I have been practicing the LBRP for about a week, generally before bed since thats when I have the most time. I am planning on adding the fourfold breath meditation exercise out of Paths of Wisdom (really interesting book by the way) this week-should I do that right after the LBRP?

To ask another question, last week a commentor posted an article by Frater Acher about the Qliphoth, in which he said (if I understood him correctly) that the Qliphoth contain fragments of the original light of Ain Soph Aur, but that light is cut off from its source and has to consume things around it to survive, thus becoming destructive. Is this a good way to think of the Qliphoth-as something that started out good but became destructive and harmful? (Without going into too many details, this line of thought made me reflect on some recent events in my own life.)
