Stellar Magic by Payam Nabarz: A Practical Guide to Rites of the Moon, Planets, Stars and Constellations
The practical rites and ceremonies in this Liber Astrum are created using a myriad of hymns and tales, drawing inspiration and material from many ancient, classical and medieval sources including: the Hymns of Orpheus, Ovid’s Metamorphoses , Plato’s Timaeus, the Hermetica: The Greek Corpus Hermeticum and the Latin Asclepius, the Greek Magical Papyri, the Chaldean Oracles, the Persian Shah Nameh ‘Epic of Kings’ by Ferdowsi, Scipio’s Dream by Cicero, the Persian Pahlavi Texts, book of Enoch, Bible Ezekiel chapter, Egyptian temples and texts, The Golden Ass by Lucius Apuleius, the Zoroastrian Yasht hymns, Sufi works of Ibn Arabi and Rumi, the Kabalistic Sefer Yetzirah, the Mithras Liturgy, Persian Burj Nameh, the Picatrix, Hesiod Works and Days, Homer’s The Odyssey, Porphyry’s On the Cave of the Nymphs and Aratus’ Phaenomena.

In bringing these ancient rites into modern times, stellar related material and ideals by modern poets such as WB Yeats, Robert Graves, Sylvia Plath, and esoteric writers such as John Milton, John Dee, Elias Ashmole, Francis Barrett, Rudolf Steiner, Aleister Crowley, Gerald Gardner have also been included, giving a Bardic blend of the ancient and the modern.

The rites here ‘set the scene’ and after all the poems and invocations are uttered, the point is reached in the rite where the magus has to make his/her direct connection, and to draw inspiration from the stellar well directly. The rites here are the beginning steps on your stellar journey, it is recommended that you write your own poems and invocations to the constellations and make your Path to the stars. This is a highly accessible, succinct and practical book on this complex subject. It is written in such a way that it can be used as a manual and workbook for practicing stellar magic or simply read for gaining insight into star lore.

Extracts from reviews:

“Dr. Nabarz out did himself in the creation of an expansive reference book on the stars. The stars hold a breadth and wonder unlike anything else. Since the dawn of dawns we have looked up to the dark sky and seen them. With so much witchcraft focused on the power of Luna’s reflected light, or the other great 7 planets… this was a book whose time has been waiting.” Frater E, Amazon Reviewer

” wasn’t sure about what to expect, but this book was a great find. Though I wouldn’t use any of the rituals exactly as is, it provides an excellent reference and point of beginning for creating your own rituals to explore the stars with. It is rare to find practical books which explores pagan ritual from a practitioners perspective and which is not absolutely aimed at beginners, Nabarz seems to have recognised the need for material for the growing number of people who are seeking something beyond the beginners level. This is an original and thought provoking book, which does just that – and so I recommend it to those looking for something which is ideal if you already have experience and knowledge and now want to explore deeper and further.” Red Kite, Amazon Reviewer

“This one of the best books I have read to date. What can I say it resonates with me. My pre-Pagan spirituality haled from the Middle East. Author, Payam Nabarz gives the reader several rituals dedicated to the stars, planets, moon and constellation. All of them are complete and easy for anyone from beginner-expert to follow and do. The rituals can be performed individually or with groups. The author encourages the reader to modify the rituals to get the most out of them. The author also gives the mythology behind the rituals and the mythology derives from many sources such as Zoroastrian, Egyptian,Greek and Roman. Very thorough! I hope to see more from this author. Not only is the book packed with information but it is loaded with sources for further research.” S Cranow, Amazon Reviewer

“This latest volume from Payam Nabarz amply fulfils the promises made on the cover.From advice on preparation and closure for the performance of any ritual, he goes on to narrate the myths behind the naming and relative positions of the constellations and similarly deals with each of the seven planets, suggesting detailed worship rituals. He guides you through a vast stellar experience encompassing Shamanic,Egyptian,Wiccan, Grecian, Suffic and Mithraic lore then through the Earthly Almanac.” Ms M Berlin, Amazon Reviewer
