The name of the Black Raven Tarot is derived from Dr. Johannes Faust’s grimoire, which is entitled the Threefold Coercion of Hell. Faust’s grimoire is also called the, ‘Cabalae nigrae, Magiae naturalis et innaturalis,’ which was first published in Passau during 1505.

The Cabalae nigrae, Magiae naturalis et innaturalis has been fused with the Goetia, which lists 72 spirits.

Faust’s grimoire is commonly known as The Black Raven, due to its title page, depicting a Raven inside of a circle holding a plant in its beak.

There are numerous other Faustian grimoires, which are purported to have been authored by Faust.

A later version of the Black Raven was published by Scheible, Stuttgart 1849. The classical Black Raven is renowned for its rich illustrations.

The Black Raven is usually considered to be a black-magic grimoire, whose contents cover the art of conjuring, coercing, binding and making obedient various spirits and demons, which of classical commonality are seen to be all male expressions of the Animus archetype.

The main motif of the Dr Johannes Faust’s book is the ‘Harrowing of Hell.’ The harrowing of Hell alludes to the descent of Christ into the underworld of Hell, which is re-enacted by the practitioner.

The descent is somewhat akin to Neo out of the Matrix films following the Eostre Easter bunny White Rabbit into Wonderland.

In White Rabbit Latin the harrowing of Hell is the, “Christi ad Inferos.”

The descent into the infernal realms originally referred to the trance experience of the Shaman, who harrowed the inner reality of the dream.

My version of the Black Raven is about the shamanic harrowing of the dream, which of a ‘threefold’ dream Yoga process is aligned with the ‘three,’ Nigredo, Albedo, and Rubedo states of inner Alchemy.

The Nigredo stage is equated with hypnagogic trance ingress into the dream. The Albedo is the inner (bio-photon) light of the dream, which specifically alludes to attaining a lucid dream. The Rubedo stage refers to hypnapompic egress out of the dream upon awakening.

As for the spirits, one can otherwise see them as dream characters, a practitioner will encounter within a lucid dream. The 72 spirits of the Goetia have been transformed into (Succubae) Succubi aspects of the Fallen Anima.

The 72 Succubi, which are depicted in the Tarot cards can be equated with what the author Carlos Castaneda termed as being Allies, a Shaman would call his ‘spirit (Genie) wives,’ from whom he derives his Tantric power or should I say, his magical inspiration.

Castaneda was taught the art of sorcery by his tutor Don Juan Matus who informed Castaneda that the Allies are an inorganic feminine intelligence.

Don Juan Matus communicated: “An “Ally”, he said, is a power a man can bring into his life to help him, advise him, and give him the strength necessary to perform acts, whether big or small, right or wrong. This Ally is necessary to enhance a man’s life, guide his acts, and further his knowledge. In fact, an ally is the indispensable aid to knowing.”

“Don Juan said this with great conviction and force. He seemed to choose his words carefully. He repeated the following sentence four times: “An Ally will make you see and understand things about which no human being could possibly enlighten you.”

The Allies a Hindu or a Tantric Tibetan Buddhist would know as Dakinis, a Japanese Buddhist would equate with Kitsune. The Ally has many names across numerous cultures. Whereas a mad surrealist Artist would know the Allies as Art Muses, he conjures up amidst his Triangle Of Art imagination unto an ensuing lucid dream, wherein the Black Raven Tarot Art Muses (Allies) can be conjured.

“The man who arrives at the doors of Artistic creation with none of the ‘madness’ of the Muses would be convinced that technical ability alone was enough to make an Artist… what that man creates by means of reason will pale before the Art of inspired beings.” – Plato
