Originally founded in ancient Greece by seven scholars and practitioners of what would now be considered black magic, the Order of Seven chose as their object of divinity the seven daughters of Atlas, the Pleiades. Much later, the order, which had grown substantially, was forced out of Greece and made their new home in Rome, right under the nose of the Catholic Church. Under the fear of persecution, the Order of Seven assimilated into general society and operated under a cloak of secrecy kept closed by a punishment of death for would-be traitors.
Today the Order of Seven operates much in the same way it did several thousand years ago. Their philosophy has expanded to some degree due to their public association but overall their basic tenets remain intact. There are approximately 2700 members worldwide and the primary source of new members is by birth into an Order of Seven family. New members are not recruited.
This is a collection of 21 of their most secretive, black magic spells. The spells in this collection were assembled from both the “Ancients” and the “Moderns.” They span thousands of years of magical thought, development, practice, and are, for the most part, unknown to all but a select few. They have been translated, adapted, and written in accordance with the universal rules of magic and witchcraft.
As with all spells, they should be used with great caution, but in general, can be worked safely. Their effectiveness must be largely attributed to the will of the worker and the worker’s effective relationship to their surrounding environment. If the worker is weak, inexperienced, or not attuned to their environment, the effectiveness or success of the spell will be equally diminished. We therefore admonish you to “get in touch” with your surroundings, practice your spells and learn to work them with confidence and resolve.
We encourage you to use these spells with the intent for which they were written, as a misuse of these spells could be disastrous. These spells are intended as curios and are to be used for personal entertainment purposes only.
Of what significance is the number seven? Consider these: the seven wonders of the world, the seven seas, the seven deadly sins, the seven daughters of Atlas in the Pleiades, the seven ages of man, the seven levels of hell, the seven primary colors, the seven notes of the musical scale, the seven days of the week, the seven-point rating scale, the seven categories for absolute judgment, the seven objects in the span of attention, and the seven digits in the span of immediate memory.
