Magical Powers of Geburah and the Fives Minor Arcana

Magical Weapons


The Chain represents the severity of the restrictions which must be placed on wandering thoughts: it might more properly be attributed to Daath. It does not really exist on the magician himself. Its function is to bind that which is above all Not-He. it is thus the only weapon which does not possess a definite unity of form and which has multiple units in its composition.


The Sword is the weapon of Mars, so also is the Spear. These weapons emphasize the fiery energy in the creative Lingam.


The Scourge is the weapon of severity as opposed to the Crook. This is the explanation of these two weapons being  crossed in the hands of the risen Osiris.

Magical Power

The Vision of Power
