Hidden London: Secrets of the City Revealed

By ANDREW GOUGH— American by birth, I have lived in London for fifteen years and consider it my home. During that time I have explored many of the city’s esoteric sites and have concluded that this remarkable metropolis is only just beginning to reveal its true occult significance. London has been inhabited for thousands of years and the diversity of its settlements has resulted in a rich, if not peculiar, collection of occult traditions. The earliest humans hunted here over four hundred … [Read more...]

‘In the Interests of Money’: America, Big Business & Revolution

By DR. K R BOLTON There is no proletarian, not even communist movement, that has not operated in the interests of money, in the directions indicated by money, and for the time permitted by money – and that without the idealist amongst its leaders having the slightest suspicion of the fact.  – Oswald Spengler1 One of the great myths of history is the concept of the mass people’s revolt against tyranny, epitomised in our era by the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. Much political analyses have … [Read more...]

John Dee & the Enochian Apocalypse

By ANDREW GOUGH— Doctor John Dee (1527-1609) remains one of London’s most intriguing historical figures. Dee was a renaissance man; an occultist, mathematician, astronomer, astrologer and navigator. In addition to his prodigious skills, Dee was a confidant of Queen Elizabeth I, who guided the nation through one of its most challenging eras, partly based upon Dee’s unique blend of alchemy, divination and Hermetic philosophy. In fact, the Queen had so much faith in Dee’s calculations she had him … [Read more...]

Nostradamus: Prophet of Hope

By VICTORIA LEPAGE— The jury is still out on the millennial prophecies of Michel Nostradamus, the French master physician, astrologer and Kabbalist of the sixteenth century. Many regard him as the greatest prophet in Western history, while others find his predictions, especially those concerned with our own era around the second millennium, irrelevant or simply too deep or too equivocal to interpret successfully. Did he predict war or peace for our time? Did he foresee a coming Utopia or a … [Read more...]

Mercury Rising: The Life & Writings of Julius Evola

By GWENDOLYN TOYNTON— If the industrious man, through taking action, Does not succeed, he should not be blamed for that – He still perceives the truth. - The Sauptikaparvan of the Mahabharata (2,16) If we select a single aspect by which to define Julius Evola, it would have been his desire to transcend the ordinary and the world of the profane.

Yukio Mishima: The Man and the Mythology

By REG LITTLE— Yukio Mishima (pen name of Kimitake Hiraoka) is perhaps the most commanding and tragic figure in 20th century Japan. Born into a samurai-bureaucrat family in 1925, he committed ritual suicide (seppuku) on 25 November 1970. He had just failed, predictably, in a call on the Japanese Self Defence Forces to revolt and re-establish the traditional authority of the Japanese Emperor. Mishima was at the peak of a brilliant literary career and on the day of his death he had completed the … [Read more...]

Rock’s Sympathy for the Devil

By MICHAEL HOWARD (1948–2015)— It was popularly believed in the 1930s that the legendary bluesman Robert Johnson, who inspired Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton, sold his soul to the Devil in exchange for his musical gifts. It was believed Johnson had the ‘Evil Eye’ and was murdered because of his alleged power over women. He seduced the wife of a beer hall owner who in revenge laced the musician’s whisky with arsenic. Many moralists saw his fate as a punishment for … [Read more...]

Synarchy: The Hidden Hand Behind the European Union

By LYNN PICKNETT & CLIVE PRINCE— While questions remain about the existence of a single global elite with an agenda that goes beyond simply keeping itself very, very rich, there are certainly groups that want to run the world for quite other reasons. And with the increasing globalisation of political and economic institutions, it has become easier for a relatively small group to inveigle itself into quite staggeringly influential positions. One cabal in particular reveals – alarmingly – … [Read more...]

In a Darkened World, is the Sun Rising Over Central Asia?

By VICTORIA LEPAGE In the light of the political upheavals and mass rebellions taking place almost everywhere in the world – in the north African and Near Eastern Muslim states, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, in Europe and America – all the international talk at present is on the clash of global geopolitical forces and how to resolve them. Can we ever expect world peace to materialise out of what amounts to a worldwide battlefield? Some observers believe not. They contend that competitive and … [Read more...]

Worlds in Collision: Will the Controversial Theories of Immanuel Velikovsky Be Proven Right?

By LAIRD SCRANTON— Some of the controversies that arise in the world seem to latch on to the public’s imagination and then, for decades or years following, simply will not let go. Such is the character of intrigue that has, for more than sixty years now, swirled turbulently around the personage of Immanuel Velikovsky. Velikovsky, who sadly died in 1979, was a Russian-born medical doctor and psychoanalyst. He first came into the public eye in the 1920’s for founding the Scripta Universitatis … [Read more...]
