Here’s a new posting to Jason Miller’s Strategic Sorcery blog regarding “luck”:
“A few years ago I wrote that magicians should not be defined by a complete lack of problems, but how they handle those problems. I hold to that, but my friend Sara Mastrospointed out that a successful Sorcerer should also be accompanied by uncommonly good luck. She’s right. I don’t think any Sorcerer worth their salt should spend their life responding to personal emergencies or fighting for every scrap of progress. If you are a person who keeps a regular practice it is not unreasonable to expect that shit should start to just work out. But like everything else in Strategic Sorcery, there is a skill to it. Luck is not just a condition of birth like your sparkly eyes or that weird 3rd nipple… Luck can be generated.
“There are a few methods that I use to generate luck for myself. Try these out and see if your luck gets better.
“1. Daily Offerings –
Not just to specific spirits, but widespread offerings. We use four classes in Strategic Sorcery, but it is good enough to just make an offering to the spirits of the air, land, and underworld where you live. Pour some libarion, light some incense. Do it every day. Do. It. Every. Day.Not feeling “receptive” today? Not feeling “into it”? Not “in the right headspace“? Do it anyway. It’s not about you. Take care of the spirits and the spirits will take care of you. Shit will start to work out almost as if the universe is conspiring with you. 1000 unnamed helpers from the land in which you live often outweigh the influence of the Archdemon that you spent 3 hours conjuring.”
