It provides a key to the practical working of this mystical system for both novice and initiate alike. To be honest, some sections of the book I had to reread and take some time to think about it because it was beyond my understanding.
It is a system, after all, not a “religion”. Jan 08, Chris rated it it was amazing Shelves: By the end of the book, I must admit I was a little lost and unsure of exactly how to put this system to use, in both tarot and my magick.
The Mystical Qabalah 4. Unfortunately, as mystical as Fortune was, she was still a product of her time.

This mighty, all-embracing glyph of the soul of man and of the universe, by virtue of its logical association of dkon, evokes images in the mind; but these images are not randomly evolved, but follow along well-defined association-tracks in the Universal Mind.
It does get a bit repetitive, but only to induce several mantras that end up being really effective when used. Dense as heck, but thoughtful and sensible, as is most of Dion Fortune’s writings. I would recommend this to anyone getting into these teachings as a sound basis.

The Mystical Qabalah by Dion Fortune
Dense, comprehensive analysis of the Western Qaballah’s ten sephiroth and the Tree mystifal Life. I read this book many years ago when I was first being introduced to Qabalah. This book, on the other hand, delves deeper into the meanings and practical uses of the kabbalistic Tree of Life and its sefirophs. Still, 80 year old English can be significantly more circuitous than the contemporary vernacular.
What is left remains immensely valuable. I can’t wait to read her other books.

Fortune beats not around the proverbial bush, and attempts to lay the concepts out as clearly as possible.

I don’t think this was the best book to pick for a complete novice to this system. How I wish she had completed her work on the paths.
I highly recommend this book to anyone jystical wants to delve deeper into the Kabbalah without being overwhelmed. Interestingly enough, I’d seen mentions of the Qabalah before I played VII, but it flew above my radar, because there was nothing connecting me to it.
Philosophically interesting regardless of your beliefs. It amalgamated my lessons, brought them into perspective, really helped me to understand and whetted my appetite for more. On the plus side again it was one of those works that gave me many ah-ha moments and insights into human nature.

I have read internet articles, watched videos and attended a workshop on this subject so I did have some understanding of the concepts that Dion Fortune wrote about I would still consider myself a beginner however.
Be warned that, although the principles of metaphysics that this book point to are eternal and do not change over time, the author’ This is a very thorough survey and guided tour through the Qabalistic Tree of Life as practiced by occultists of the Golden Dawn variety.
