I originally intended to launch this site for the Summer solstice, but due to delays in getting the purple site started, I got behind on the planned schedule of launching the colour magic sites. Still I’m only just over a week late with this site launch so we should be back on schedule from here on in.
Yellow magic concerns that magic associated with the Sun and the Qabalistic sphere of Tiphareth. Alchemically it relates to the metal of Gold, and therefore represents the goal of the Great Work. Therefore on this site we can examine mysteries related to the Sun, Tiphareth and gold and what they symbolise.
In Liber Kaos, Pete Carroll describes four distinct areas over which yellow magic spreads its domain:
- Ego: Self-image. The image your mind has of how you think others see you.
- Charisma: The degree of self confidence you project to others.
- Laughter creativity.
- The urge to assertion and dominance or resistance to manipulation and control.
All of these topics also find a home here on the yellow site.
In my own book, Kaos Hieroglyphica I also explore Ego magic as the use and creation of glamours, in addition to the topics mentioned by Carroll above. This too forms an important part of yellow magic.
In summary then, yellow magic concerns itself with the manipulation of our outwardly projected self and related issue, the opposite of white magic, the magic of our inner self.
