I'm so new to this really nice site but not so new to Magick and occult and ... .
Yet, I'm less than a beginner in Evocation. My main practical work was in Chaos Magick which hadn't so much real results unfortunately. Long story short I wanna start Evocation.
A friend told me not to start with Goetia and Crowley works or Enochian Magick and recommended me the book which I made the topic for.
The Book of Solomon's Magick by Carroll "poke" Runyon.
I searched the site but I didn't find any topic of post on the matter (the book).
so I had some questions I'd really appreciate if anyone can answer.
1 - Is it a good book for a beginner ?
2 - does it have practical results ? I'm really tired of really low possibilities and pretending to get results. I'm studying on the matter for like 8 years since I was 11 and yet really low results I'd rather call zero.
3 - If it is not best option for start, please tell me what book you'd consider as the best book for start.
One more thing is that I'm not in a real hurry for the highly practical result, but I'll need a great job to be done in 3 month. There is a great exam for going to university in my damned country and as I spent most of my time studying magic rather than normal school lessons I thought that really the magick should come to my help at last.
Thanks for your concern
P.S. to Eugene : What is your opinion about Carl Jung ? I only ask because I read some of his works, I wanted to know, a new age PH.D 's opinion
PS. Does anyone know the source for the sigil on page 105? Is this of his own design or is it taken from one of the grimoires? If it is not of his own design, this lends some credance to the Ba'al/Astarte mythos that he puts forward as it is a mingling of the sigils of Bael and Astaroth.
