Dion Fortune Biography

Dion Fortune born Violet Mary Firth, was a prominent British occultist, author, psychologist, teacher, artist, and mystic. Schooled in Western Esotericism, she was influential in the modern revival of the magical arts. She was also a prolific writer of the supernatural and the occult in both novels and non-fiction works. As a psychologist, she approached magic and hermetic concepts from the perspectives of Jung and Freud.

Known to those in her inner circle as DF, her pseudonym was inspired by her family motto "Deo, non-fortuna", originally the ancient motto of the Barons and Earls Digby. Fortune died in 1946 from leukemia in Middlesex, London, at the age of 55. Source: Wikipedia
