Book 3, Chapter 7 of 'The Picatrix' explicitly describes the Sun as  possessing a split Benefic and Malefic nature — “he repairs and  destroys, and brings both good and evil…” Here, the Sun is set apart  from the other six planets outlined in the same text, which are either described as entirely infortunate (Saturn and Mars), fortunate (Jupiter,  Venus, and the Moon), or more fluid (in the case of Mercury). 
This  class will explore the foundational elements of this dual-natured  current, particularly as they pertain to the Solar presence I have come to call the Gold and Scarlet God. We will discuss their qualities, operations and approaches, as well as a curated selection of mythological and folkloric connections to help contextualize the magical scope of this planetary influence.


About the Presenter:
David Davis (he/him) is the Folk mystic, writer, and artist behind Porous Palms — a platform founded at the crossroads of magic, culture, and community. As an Animist and student of the Hoodoo tradition, he seeks to contribute to the reclamation and evolution of his Ancestral traditions. This goal is most apparent in his explorations of different magical systems and the near-constant weaving of personal cosmologies. His identity as a Black, Queer individual is also central to his magical expressions, as well as his conception of and relationship to the spirits he engages with.
