The Mage's Guide to the Internet -- MaGI



The MaGI is a directory of URLs centered on long-term forums and text files which allow a broad spectrum of opinion on arcane, occult, and mystical subjects.

Included herein find links to internet sites of interest to the working magician, with a general categorical focus on occult and mystical subjects. Special attention is given to the disciplines of Alchemy, Astrology, Ceremonial Magic, Divination (chiromancy, cartomancy, necromancy, etc.), Numerology (and numerolinguistics associated with the kabbalah and its counterfeits), and Spells. Topics which are not covered in any depth by the MaGI include psychicism; out-of-body experiences; medical herbalism; and the various forms of hypnotism, therapy, or massage.


The following internet categories are arranged from the most stable to those most liable to change:

  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
  • Usenet Newsgroups
  • Electronic Mail Lists
  • Multi-User Dimensions
       and Internet Relay Channels

  • World-Wide Websites, Search Engines and More!


    File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

    FTP sites are caches of text files and graphics resembling stationary internet libraries from which one may download material for personal use.

    MUDs and IRC are interactive forums where many individuals can talk or play with one another in a manner not unlike 'party lines' on the telephone. MUDs usually contain a descriptive theme, and are constructed as games, project chat forums, or sociopolitical experiments. Internet Relay Channels are member- or topic-based 'chat rooms,' often moderated by an individual or group.
    IRC channels related to the occult include #alchemy, #divination, #tarot,
    #magick, #occult, #thelema, and #witch.


    The world wide web is an array of graphically-enhanced text pages and interactive forums connected via programmed links to Universal Resource Locators (URLs) and explored via internet browsers. Due to the often changeable nature of web locations and the sheer number of entries, the MaGI list of web sites on occult and mystical subjects was suspended due to turnover and 'URL freez-out' problems. Instead, connect your browser up to:

    DMOZ URLs!

    With the variability of DMOZ popularity and centrality to, i have retained the original pile of links and added to them, repeatedly revising for alphabetic pile making available key term search.

    Search Engines

    Search Engines are web sites of a more stable type which may be used to identify valid sources of occult information on the world wide web without having to go through a tremendous number of the dead links many web sites never remove. You just specify the topic of your interest in their input field and trigger the 'search' link.
