That Voodoo Preist believes in magick!

Practitioners of magical arts feel they need to spell it differently in order to avoid confusion with stage magicians.

magick
An action or effort undertaken because of a personal need to effect change, especially as associated with Wicca or Wiccan beliefs.
http://education.yahoo.com/reference/dictionary/entry/magick
Obsolete spelling of magic.
(occult) Core component of the mystical system of Thelema by Aleister Crowley. (The spelling with the terminal “k” was repopularized in the first half of the 20th century by Aleister Crowley.)
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/magick
The Anglo-Saxon k in Magick is a means of indicating the kind of magic which Crowley performed. K is the eleventh letter of several alphabets, and eleven is the principal number of magick, because it is the number attributed to the Qliphoth – the underworld of chaotic forces that have to be mentally conquered before magick can be performed. K has other magical implications: it corresponds to the power or shakti aspect of creative energy, for k is the ancient Egyptian khu, the magical power. Specifically, it stands for kteis (vagina), the complement to the wand (or phallus) which is used by the Magician in certain sexual magick aspects of the Great Work.[2]
