DOI: 10.1558/equinox.45511


Chaos Magic is a contemporary and individualistic style that combines eclectic influences from the Occult Revival to modern movements. It emphasises personalisation, mental flexibility, and paradigm-shifting in magical practice. The manifestation of will is central to its philosophy. Chaos Magick has evolved and reflects practitioners' social and political climates, integrating popular culture and adapting to urban and digital realities. It combines aesthetics, identities and belief systems within Pagan networks.
