Encyclopedia > Zos Kia Cultus

Zos Kia Cultus is a form, style, or school of magic developed by Austin Osman Spare. It focuses on one's individual universe and the influence of the magician's will on it. Consequently, it is highly personal. The ancient symbol of the pentagram is often used as a symbol for magic. ... Dressing the wounded during a gas attack by Austin O. Spare, 1918. ...


While the Zos Kia Cultus has very few adherents today, it is widely considered an important influence on the development of western occultism in general, and the rise of chaos magic in particular. For other uses of this term, see occult (disambiguation). ... The chaos star (called a chaosphere by some practitioners) is the most popular symbol of chaos magic. ...


The meaning of Zos is the whole of the human, involving the whole spectrum of conscious thought. The symbol of Zos is a pentagram, or the five fingers of the human hand.


Kia refers to the eye, the symbolism of which can be understood either as the gateway to Zos, the self, or a phonetic "I." It is clear from Spare's writingthat how the self is understood is key to the nature of the said self; our perception defines our nature, not the other way around. This is the key to Zos Kia Cultus.
