For as long as anyone can remember, Austin has been a veritable magnet for magic, mystery, and high weirdness. Whether attracting artists and magicians like Elisabet Ney and Aleister Crowley, or spawning its very own legendary dark stars such as Roky Erickson, the current that flows here is undeniable and powerful.
Some say it’s the ley lines. Others, perhaps the underground caverns and springs. But there’s no doubt among anyone who’s spend a significant amount of time in Austin – it has a very unique and singular something.
It’s an oasis of freedom within a conservative state.
Sacred to the Left Hand Path is the principle of antinomianism, which simply means to consciously think and act against the accepted rules. Austin is, itself, an antinomian city.
So, it’s no surprise that this is the home of the oldest Pylon of the Temple of Set – the Bull of Ombos, of which I am the Sentinel.
Because we are fortunate enough to reside in this place, this bastion of free thought and the open exchange of ideas, the Pylon has decided to make some of our Work public. We are living in an incredible time and place. The purpose of this blog is to share what we do, both as a form of record-keeping, and to fan the spark of the Black Flame in others.
The goal of the Bull of Ombos Pylon is the enhance the very powerful, special magic of Austin and Central Texas, while also drawing upon this energy for our own growth.
