Babalon compels me to re-think my Pagan ideologies. When I was a younger ‘religious scholar’ I poured over and obsessed on the Book of Revelations. Not understanding the history of it’s author or any comparison in apocalyptic writings, my Catholic upbringing still had it’s chains around me; holding me to the shame, guilt and eventually the fear used to control. Of course, this might also have been due to me being a slight insomniac in high school (one bout lasted 23 days with little more than 3...more

This book is an eye-opener. As you read it, you see the Goddess as She is, A Divinely Sexual Female, beautiful, Temptress, Seducer, Queen & Ruler. I could go on, there are so many titles & words for our Goddess.
Why the Red Goddess? Remember Robert Graves' White Goddess? A classic, So is this book. You
see this Goddess throughout History & time. Men try to surpress Her, undermine Her, even try to wipe Her out, to no avail. Red lipstick is sexy, so is a red dress, so is the Red Godde...more

This is not a book if you are looking for prefabricated rituals to invoke the Goddess. Neither is it a theoretical piece. But this definitely is the book you should read if you call yourself a devotee of Babalon, or just the Divine Feminine, the Goddess of Love. This book comes at the right time and I think the author himself knows this all too well.
Peter Grey delivers a magickal history of Her and it is one of the best out there to my humble opinion. He traces her legacy all the way back to Mes...more

The other reviewers cover this well... for me this book was a true transmission, as well as being an excellent alternate true history from its particular lens. I'm not a magick practioner per se but I'm on a path and simply reading this and doing a couple of thought experiments was a real can opener to the self.

Books about Babalon are bound to end in, well, you know how it ends. So take it, and of course take any book that is a can opener to the self, with a bit of...?

Covers the history of Babalon from her beginnings in Sumer up to the current times. He gives his twist on events in history and how it applies to Babalon and shows how her presence has persisted despite the best attempts to wipe her out. Key characters in this book are John Dee, Aleister Crowley and Jack Parson, as well as the authors own self. Definitely worth the read, I only wish there was more practical information covered in addition to the history and musings. But perhaps the next book ......more

Great book that connects Sumerian mythology over Dee & Kelly work all the way to Jack Parsons' escapades. I read it several times and most recently in trying to connect with parts of Robert Graves' The White Goddess. Grey clearly shares a great and justified passion for the subject, still some of his analyses of goddess suppression in Judaism and Christianity, I felt, needed clearer historical positioning. I wish the book is double in length. Must read!

An in-depth examination of the Goddess in her guise as Babalon. Highly recommended for anyone wishing to explore the mysteries of the Dark Lady.

“Our culture is hardwired with a Christian value system. Even if, like myself, you have never been a believer your mindset will still be shot through with this morality. Our deepest drives are distorted by an internal censor. Whether this is a bearded man sat on a cloud, or a sense of vague guilt will depend on your individual programming. Face up to it. Even if you are enlightened enough to be nodding along with what I’m saying you still have fetters on your freedom that have not yet been struck.” 1 likes
“It is always easier to believe if you are opposed to something, or actually suffering for your beliefs. Without perceived or real oppression rebellion tends to fizzle – this is our current slack secular state in the West.” 1 likes
