The Book of Phoebus

The Book of Phoebus

In writing this book, we can see how the author, Vayu Tiger, willingly became a scribe of the gods; their voice is given life in his words. What the three gods that are central to this book teach us is a magical system that is complete, spanning across aeons from one astrological age to the next. The message here is given to us in a language both modern and ancient, in the form of allegory. The work here contains elements of kabbalism, numerology, astrology, divination, alchemical formula, Hermeticism and ceremonial ritual. You will find formula for ritual making, signs, symbols and omens, and other forms of occult symbolism interconnected with nature. It is through this aspect that the divine and sacred voice of the gods is brought and made manifest here on earth. But like many occult works and revealed words, even more important are the words that are unspoken.
