Chapter Twenty-Five Concerning The Nature Of Metals And Minerals (From The Way of the Crucible) They know nothing of the ways of women. They are aggressive, cruel, and strong in nature. They know nothing of fear or weakness. The Alchemist must surpass all snares and delusions. He must follow them passionately, forsaking all sadness and sorrow. Be brave and press on, enduring and striving toward thy goal. Never give into grief and frustration. Control thy rage. Use caution in thy work.

Chapter Twenty-Five How To Collect And Prepare Plants (From Alchemists Handbook) NOTE: Make sure they are safe and ripe beforehand. 1. Barks Should be peeled from young trees in Autumn or early Spring. After shaving off the outer portion of the back, cut it thinly, and place it in a good position in the shade to dry. 2. Roots Dig them in early Spring before the sap rises. 3. Seeds and Flowers Fully ripened or in full bloom is when they should be gathered respectively. They should be dried quickly in the shade. 4. Medicinal Plants Can be gathered at any time during Spring, Summer, and Autumn. 5. Leaves Should be gathered while in bloom. Dry quickly. 6. Fruits and Berries Should be picked when fully ripe.

Chapter Twenty-Six How To Collect And Prepare Metals And Minerals (From The Way of the Crucible) Metals and minerals must be collected in the day and hour of that subjects planet.

Chapter Twenty-Seven Alchemic Processes Dictionary 1.

Chapter Twenty-Eight Concerning Nature (From A Short Catechism On Alchemy) 1. Nature is divided into four palmary regions. The regions are Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water. 2. The four palmary regions govern the twelve signs of the zodiac as well as the twelve major processes. 3. The beginning and ending of Nature is God. 4. The chief study of a Philosopher is the investigation of the Alchemic Processes of Nature. 5. Make sure your experiments are in harmony with Nature, possible, and attainable. Imitate Nature in every detail to accomplish things by your own power. 6. Nature is divide into male and female differences. They are Earth and Water which is governed by female Yin, as well as, Wind and Fire which is governed by male Yang. 7. Nature is like Mercury as Mercury contains all things within itself. 8. You cannot see Nature herself but you can see her effect on things, although it is volatile due to the Secret Fire. 9. The examiners of Nature should be truthful, simple, patient, and persevering. 10. To improve something alchemically through transmutation, one must divide the male and female attributes and apply them to his soul (male) and spirit (female) and then apply them to the test subject. 11. The metallic nature stores his seed in the four elements. 12. The Philosopher can accomplish anything with the elixir/germ/a quintessence/philosophical sulphur of anything. 13. This elixir is engendered by the four elements. 14. The center of the earth is a hollow place where none may repose. 15. The four elements expel and deposit their seeds in the ex-center which we call the mantle. 16. The elements procreate their seed from the Yin/Yang symbol. 17. Mercury is governed by the rays of the sun and the moon. 18. The second matter is Sulphur, and the third matter is Salt. 19. The matter must be purified via the corresponding degrees of fire. 20. The end of nature is not in metals. The life of metals is the Secret Fire. The death of metal is fused fire.

Chapter Thirty Moon Cycles/Lunar Mansions (From The Way of the Crucible) Most of the ancient cultures based their calendar on the cycles of the moon. The effect of the moon on the oceans tides is well known. Did you know this tidal influence also affects the atmosphere and even the earths crust? In fact everything on our planet is heavily influenced by the course of the moon. Some believe that the earth and moon share the same subtle etheric body and the cycles of the moon modulate this energy body in a predictable manner. The practical alchemist utilizes this modulated energy to assist works in the laboratory. The first and most obvious lunar cycle is that of the waxing and waning of the moon each month. The Waxing Moon is good for Enriching or Essential element by circulations, sublimations, or distillations. Its magnetic influence draws things up, volatilizing, exalting, spiritualizing them. The Waning Moon is good for Separating the Pure from the Impure. Impure whether by fermentation, extraction, or calcination, etc. Just as the dying moonlight, our matter is subjected to the fermentation and putrefaction of death in order to release its essence, thus separating the pure and the impure. Each month, as the moon circles around us, the signs of the zodiac become a backdrop to it, one by one. The moon concentrates these zodiacal energies and focuses them upon the earth. In this way, the alchemist has an opportunity to harness the power of a particular sign in his operations on a monthly time scale. The traditional correspondence between signs and operations is shown below. Mansions of the Moon # 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Chapter Thirty-One Astrological Guidelines For Herbs (From The Way of the Crucible) The system of Lunar Mansions used in the West was developed by the ancient Chaldeans. This system became very popular with astrologers and magicians of the Renaissance period, for election of times to undertake various actions. In laboratory alchemy, it provides another guide for opportune times in which to perform operations and capture the momentum of celestial energies. To such as study astrology (who are the only men I know that are fit to study physick, physick without astrology, being like a lamp without oil) you are the men I exceedingly respect, and such documents as my brain can give you at present (being absent from my study) I shall give you, and an example to show the proof of them. 1. Fortify the body with herbs of the nature of the Lord of the Ascendant, tis no matter whether he be a Fortune or Infortune in this case. 2. Let your Medicine be something antiphathetical to the Lord of the Sixth. 3. Let your Medicine be something, of the nature of the sign ascending. 4. If the Lord of the Tenth be strong, make use of his Medicines. 5. If this cannot well be, make use of the Light of Time. 6. Be sure always to fortify the grieved part of the body by sympathetical remedies. 7. Regard the Heart, keep that upon the wheels because the Sun is the Fountain of Life, and therefore those Universal Remedies, Aurum Potable and the Philosophers Stone, cure all diseases by fortifying the heart.

Chapter Thirty-Two How To Interpret Alchemical Texts (From The Way of the Crucible) The only known method for interpreting Alchemic texts lays in its sister science known as Astrology. The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus also supports this method. In the Emerald Tablet of Hermes, there is the expression As Above, So Below. In other words, everything that is above the earth has something that corresponds to it below the earth. Astrology takes it two steps further with the following statements: As above, so below. As within, so without. As the universe, so the soul. In other words, everything within the body or within the creation of God corresponds to something beyond the body or beyond the creation of God. Beyond the creation of God it would be negative instead of positive though. Also, everything within the universe corresponds to everything about the human soul. Here is an example of this method: 1. We know that the herb aconite which is ruled by Saturn exists on the earth. 2. Because it exists on the Earth, there is something that corresponds to it in the stars. 3. Taking it one step further, something about aconite exists within us. 4. And even further, something universal about it exists in the human soul as well. Take a look at this chart: Universal Saturn Beyond Creation Werewolves Soul Essence of Aconite Below The Earth Shapeshifters Within Creation Aconite Above The Earth Canis Major

1. Universally, Saturn (aconite) is seen as the herb related to death. 2. The essence of aconite can be extracted through Separation, Purification, and Cohobation. 3. The plant aconite exists within creation under the other two names of Monks hood and Wolfs Bane. 4. Werewolves exist in the realm of legends and folklore. 5. Werewolves would fall into the category of Shapeshifters and would be tied in with Shamanism. 6. Because Canis Major means Great Dog, it would be in the stars as that because the Wolf is part of the canine family.
