COVID: Spelling Magic




Magic is “the Great Work” in Western traditions, ancient and timeless, and magic ‘spells’ convey creation into multiple dimensions, giving form to matter –at least, that’s what I’ve learned about magic and language over the years. Written or spoken, the dynamic convergence of science, art, and mysticism that is language encodes reality. The complexed western tradition is older than the Bible, encoded there too, of course, establishing Divine Order. That said, I observed the phrase ‘coronavirus disease pandemic’ as loaded with magical potential.

Firstly, it makes a ‘magic circle’ of 26 letters. A magic circle is made from a linear string of letters by drawing down-and-around the matching ‘c’ string ends, ‘locking’ them into a never-ending circle. This opens new dimensions; spheres, portals, wavelengths, etc. Repetition pumps power into the circle. The first time I posted a ‘magic circle’ and its only anagram on the blog (STX and Stuxnet), the result was startling. In principle, the magic circle makes a language ‘spell’ into a Force of Nature.

Anagrams can be weirdly revealing and predictive, sometimes exposing a linkage to otherwise unrelated events, especially I suppose if a magic circle is made.

In English, 26 letters makes our alphabet and equates to ‘8’ (2+6) in numerology. Our corona phrase also contains every vowel, the ‘singing’ tones invoking ‘the gods’, so it represents a symbolic whole –the whole world, eh? The number 8 in the zodiac is ruled by Scorpio –the 8th House—domain of Life, Death, Regeneration and Transformation. By the calendar, the water sign of Scorpio rises in October and completes in November. Scorpio’s time is coincident to the coronavirus pandemic plan known as “Event 201” in October 2019, the outbreak following in Wuhan in November. Wuhan is ‘across the water’ and ‘on the water’, and coronavirus carries on droplets of water. The I Ching titles the #8 hexagram as ‘Accord’;  in the western Tarot #8 is Justice, the figure above the central portal of Notre Dame de Paris that holds the world in Balance. The façade of Notre Dame, by the way, names the center door ‘Portal of the Last Judgement’ and above it Justice is ‘opposed’ by the Demon with its hand upon the world, controlling the balance while she holds the scale. Numbers ‘2’ and ‘6’ are earth signs in the zodiac (houses of Taurus and Virgo), below the horizon, meaning roughly ‘stability at home’, like “stay at home orders”. In the ‘Pentateuch’, first five books of the Bible, a deducible series of number ‘8’s  from the generations of Adam presents the numbers ‘17’ and ‘26’ respecting Fathers and Sons – it is both Power and Infinity invested in mankind. ‘8’ sideways is the infinity symbol and the two circles of a converged, overlapping ‘8’ have the ‘vesica pisces’ in the center, the ‘fish’ symbol of Lordship.

A few anagrams that I worked out last night seem to reveal some features of the COVID story. Here are five handy ones, each spelling back the phrase ‘coronavirus disease pandemic’:

“advise a microsensor panic due”

“I spoon media ruse in cadavers”

“science and media pour saviors”

“a censure divides a comparison”

“o raise as music and providence”

—surely, many more and if you find some, please share! Meantime, I’ll work the ‘story’ and be back with results. Make your own Magic!!





  1. Reading the esoteric tea leaves.

    • Hi Walter –if only this was tea leaves instead of language ‘memes’ already passed. I’ve thought for a long time now that memes may have a ‘transmissible’ basis in biology– esoteric indeed. The concept occurred to me while looking at the anthrax attacks of 2001 and the changes in mental state of survivors who did not fully recover, even after 8 years and more. We seldom get to hear of it, but maybe memes and genes are not so different as tools of biotech and bioweapons.

  2. I believe words have power, too, and that’s why I refuse to call it by its full name. Instead I call it CV or even Rona and hopefully that helps take the scary zing out of its name which I agree has been used like a spell. After all, how can anyone be frightened of Rona, which sounds like a cute girl’s name?

    • Thank you E.– RonaZona-ding-dong, sounds like a head case– and we’ll just keep ‘corona’ as a beautiful thing.
      I’d like to see ‘rona’ get silly!
