“Magick”… or “Magic”???

by Ravemore

Magick versus magic… magic versus Magick. The debate is ongoing in many circles on which spelling should be used. Aleister Crowley chose the spelling to differentiate the occult from stage magic. The same spelling can also be found in a 1651 translation of Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa’s (1486-1535) De Occulta Philosophia.

My opinion is that the debate is wasted effort and the energy can be best used for other endeavors. It does not matter what spelling you use. I use “magic” and hold no grudges against any who use the “ck” version. Whatever you feel most comfortable with is what you should use. It will in no way increase or decrease the power or effectiveness of your workings.
