Welcome to the official blog of the Ancient and Honourable Order of the Golden Dawn (AHOGD), a traditional embodiment of the original Order of the Golden Dawn set up by S.L. MacGregor Mathers, William Wynn Westcott, and William Robert Woodman in 1888.
The Golden Dawn attracted many noteworthy people over the years, including poet W.B. Yeats, actress Florence Farr, and occultist Aleister Crowley. The Order and its many offshoots helped disseminate the important esoteric teachings of the Western Mystery Tradition, from Tarot and Astrology to the Qabalah and Enochian Magic.
Today we continue this noble tradition, offering, to the best of our knowledge and ability, an authentic initiatory school of Hermetic and Rosicrucian mysteries.
On this Autumnal Equinox, as we enter the sign Libra, we begin this blog in hopes of offering an additional means to connect with would-be students, explaining what we are about, and providing some insight and information.
In this time of balance, as we attract the vitalising and empowering rays of the Sun, we offer this heartfelt blessing: may Light be extended in abundance upon you.
