There are many ways to contact angels. You can call out sincerely, without any sigil, ritual or psalm, and sometimes you will get a response. Or you can go to the other extreme and employ complex and extensive rituals for full contact, where the angel is summoned into your presence. The approach I have advocated lies between those extremes. Each layer of ritual method assists contact, but complexity is kept to a minimum.
Magickal Angels and The Greater Magickal Angels have been combined into a single volume called The 72 Angels of Magick. This means we can get the information to people at a much lower cost. The original books have now been unpublished, and are replaced by The 72 Angels of Magick.
If you already own Magickal Angels and The Greater Magickal Angels, you absolutely DO NOT need to buy the new book. What you have will work perfectly well and this is not an upgrade. This is just a way of getting the information out more efficiently to new readers.
The content of The 72 Angels of Magick is largely identical to the content of Magickal Angels and The Greater Magickal Angels. As well as combining the books, the other changes are as follows:
The Invocation Chant now uses Hebrew Psalms rather than Latin Psalms.
Hebrew replaces Latin in the sigils.
A visual scan of the letters in the sigil has been added to the method.
A few pronunciations have been modified for clarity and consistency.
There’s also a single Shem Talisman which can be used for all seventy-two angels, so you no longer have to create two separate talismans.
Finally, there’s an option to use an English Psalm if you don’t like pronouncing the Hebrew.
Do the changes matter? Not really. They were made only because the books were being combined (to reduce costs), and I had the opportunity to make changes. I know some readers will purchase this book out of curiosity or for the sake of completion, but I want to make it absolutely clear that if you’re using the original books, you’re not missing out. We’re not publishing a better, updated version to make you pay twice. If you have the original books, you can work with them and all will be well.
Combining the books will make it easier for new readers to navigate the magick.
The response to the two angel books has been overwhelmingly positive. For those who’ve never worked with angels before, I am pleased to offer The 72 Angels of Magick.

Any chance that this book is going to be published in paperback?
Yes, it’s available here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1530016622/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1530016622&linkCode=as2&tag=damon05-20&linkId=SGPVHXHSQZVS6VTX
I’m curious, regarding the full 72 Angel Hebraic Shemhamphora Talisman. Did this come through a suggestion from Raziel? Seems like his kind of thing; though it certainly could be the result of the research and work of a thoughtful and clever mage.
I’m glad to hear that you’re retiring, if it suits you. From my perspective it’s actually quite heartening and speaks to a successful application of one of the core purposes of the Work…to fulfill one’s True Will; and to be able to do what feels best for oneself. For me it means you’re getting to choose your path freely and live the life you want. This is a wonderful signal for all of us and just plain good for you.
It’s been a wild year and I can see that you’ve worked your butt off. You’ve been generous, kind and patient in delivering the most direct, accessible and effective schools of magick I’ve ever encountered. Now you leave a body of work and a legacy that should contribute to your immortality. And in the midst of all this clarity you’ve left traces of many mysteries and skill sets that an enterprising and curious mage can track to continue to add to the arts development. Though simplified, wizards may yet be born of it.
I would also say that this really seems to validate some of what Crowley alluded to in his Book of the Law among other rants. Like Bruce Lee, you have made what was kept hidden and secret accessible to many people, regardless of their heritage. Keep your banishing and protections strong.
Thank you, Damon. I appreciate what you’ve done to contribute to the resurrection of magick in this world and for what you’ve contributed to me, personally. I hope you pop up from time to time.
Thank you so much. That is a very warm compliment.
I am heartbroken to hear of your coming retirement. I have every book that you have ever written. They have changed my life, and I cannot imagine how I ever lived without them.I look forward to the forthcoming books by
other members of The Gallery. But it will never be the same without you. I thank you with all of my heart for your
generosity in sharing your extraordinary knowledge, and wish you the best in all your future endeavors.
Will you be continuing your blog? It has greatly contributed to a better understanding of the material in your
books. So thank you for that as well! You are a blessing to me.
