Psalmistry Part 2

For examples on how to use the Psalms within magical ritual, and also to see my train of thought for appropriating verses instead of only whole chapters, refer to the first blog I’ve written on Psalmistry HERE.

 

In this list of Psalm correspondences you will find, unlike in most other lists out there, more direct relations to the words used in the verses themselves, making more relevant appropriations, including some metaphorical extrapolation that make for some strong magical opportunities. This list is far from complete, but represents a limited example of how you can appropriate the Psalms towards the many needs of life.

 

Where there are no verse indications, this means the entire chapter or at least most if not all of the verses contained therein are generally applicable to the attribute listed. In those instances you have a lot of freedom to choose which verses resonate best with your goal, or just stick with reading the entire chapter. What’s important here is emotionally resonating with the words used. When you come across a Psalm (any scripture in general, really) that you do not understand either because of lack of context or vocabulary, take some time to do a bit of research and you may end up resonating with it more. If you still don’t get excited about finding the perfect fit in a book filled with endless options, rest assured you can keep looking.

 

That’s why I made this list, because I found myself getting pretty excited about researching Psalms for my meditations and rituals, and ended up enjoying the scriptures more, not just as a means to an end. I hope those readers interested in using these will expand on what I’ve done and make their own appropriations, fashioning their own simple rituals, or learning more about how the scriptures can be used to amp up your work. Those with further ideas are invited to share.

 

Some further notes on these correspondences; there are certainly some reoccurring themes that run through the Psalms, most of them being prayers against enemies and praises to God. When using those that deal with prayer against the attacks of enemies, one might think that this isn’t applicable or practical. But, if you think metaphorically, it is clear to see that we all have enemies; Vices and imperfections. They assault us from all sides, every one of us; laziness, lust, greed, etc. A good exercise is to read these types of Psalms and try to figure out how you can apply them to yourself even if the subtle meanings may seem irrelevant to you at first. I recommend Psalm 69 for this, it is a powerful passage that includes many references to this theme, but there are numerous ones that can be used in this way.

 

I have even listed a good deal of curses (!), as there is some hefty power behind some of these chapters that sometimes deal wholly as “Dear Lord, fuck up my enemies, badly!” Some are even moderately graphic (like Psalm 58, which features poison snakes, broken teeth, melting and cutting enemies, melting snails, and miscarriages), and while I make no endorsements for the use of “black magic” per se, real enemies and real threats always exist and sometimes it is hard to sit idly by and let people drag you down. So, there’s that. No need to get into a discussion of magical ethics here, do as ye will. Let’s just be adults and recognize the much needed care that should be taken when accepting responsibility for using these Psalms to curse/hex others.

 

Another thing about the Psalms is that there is a lot, a LOT, of chapters categorized by Worship and Praise. This should give us a clue about the way we practice and pray; that maybe we should also dedicate as much time in praise and thanksgiving as we do in ritual for when we need something. The fact is, life will always be challenging, so there will always be problems to pray on, but for the many blessings in life we also need to be thankful as well. This should keep us reflecting on the issue of balance. So take the time periodically to fashion a ritual of thanksgiving or praise when good things happen, or even when they don’t! If you can’t find things to be thankful for, or if you can’t find the time to put together a ritual of thanksgiving, then, without trying to sound at all holier-than-thou, you may need to prioritize and reassess your approach to working with Judeo-Christian magic.

 

Notice also that the Penitential Psalms, those of confession for mercy, are Psalms 6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, and 143 (6, 31, 37, 50, 101, 129, and 142 in the Septuagint numbering). However, there are more than just these listed, many other chapters and verses have been listed as confessionals and for mercy, so keep a lookout for these when you find yourself needing some honest confession. Consider building a little ritual out of it if this suits you.

Psalmistry Part 2

Tarot Prosperity Ritual

tarot

 

It had been a while since I had done a short ritual to empower my Key talisman, so I figured it was time to give it another go. This ritual set up is based on the previous one I used (you can read about the Talisman Consecration using Invocation and the Tarot, it will be a good place to start). The Key was a gift given me when I was ordained as a Porter, and I’ve been using it as a charm ever since.

As you could have guessed, this set up is aimed at the goal of prosperity, and is an advancement of the ritual laid out in the Cicero’s Tarot Talismans. However, it doesn’t have to be aimed at prosperity, and you can adapt it towards any goal you like with 2 of your own Influence cards and an Outcome card.

My version detailed here uses more props, so for anyone looking to use a simplification, you can simply use 4 Tarot cards (in the case of a prosperity goal you can use a Significator, Magician, Wheel of Fortune, and Ace of Pentacles), a chosen charm/talisman, a black candle, and a white candle. The arrangement would form a simple diamond shape and would look like this:

 

TarotTalisman3

The first card position is the significator. Most use a Court card that represents themselves or their current state of being or their current situation. In my ritual, shown below, it is at this point when interacting with this card that I use a simple prayer to the Holy Guardian Angel (sourced from this link). This is the beginning of the driving force behind your Will and ultimate goal, and uses a white candle symbolizing the initiation of this force.

The second and third card positions represent the dual forces that will influence the change you wish to make, the prime movers of the work itself. Being two positions, you may wish to assign the second place to the Active force, and the third place to the Passive force of influence.

The fourth card position is the Outcome, and uses a black candle for manifestation.

This is the most basic version of the layout and uses minimal props. The talisman can be anything you wish, though I usually recommend something portable if you wish to use it as a daily charm.

 

Next I’ll explain my version of the set up and detail the ritual. The card positions are the same but I use a painted wooden Triangle in the middle of the diamond, both to represent the invocation of the Supernal sephiroth, and also to symbolically contain the force invoked (ala the Golden Dawn), inside of which is placed the charm.

The talisman I used was the aforementioned Key. This time around I threaded a purple ribbon through it and tied 4 knots with it to reinforce Jupiterian associations; some extra prosperity correspondences. With the two ends of the ribbon I placed them at the second and third card positions, to symbolize the connections to the Active and Passive influences.

My significator card was the Prince of Wands, a figure that to me represents a youthful and creative spirit but with a danger of often being too “fiery” and runs the risk of often burning himself out in many ways. Here at this position the White candle represents the initial force of the ideal goal and the archetypal positive action of setting oneself towards this goal.

The Active influence card position that I chose was the Magician (Mercury, and by association Elohim Tzavaot and Raphael). The Passive influence card position was the Wheel of Fortune (Jupiter, and by association El and Tzadqiel). Here we have an interplay between Mercurial and Jupiterian forces; Mercury releases blockages and increases the natural flow of exchange, while Jupiter establishes prosperous and generous ruling ability and the principle of expansion.

At the Outcome card position I used the Ace of Pentacles, representing material gain and prosperity in the world of Assiah. This card also represents the purest Earth energy, and as such the Black candle is even more appropriate, and I call upon Auriel here as the Archangel of Earth as the final invocation.

At this position I place the Ace of Pentacles upon my Earth Pantacle, which relates to the card chosen as a force of Earth energy, bringing manifestation to the idealized goal, that which starts at the top of the diamond with the significator.

For my ritual I also use a Cup of salted water (Earth and Water) and a Censer (Fire and Air) for a quick initial consecration of the talisman.

Here is what the layout looks like:

 

TarotTalisman4

The ritual I used is pretty basic and loosely adapted from the Ciceros’ version with some additional elements.


 

-Tarot Talisman Prosperity Ritual-

 

*  Procul, O procul este, profani!

[Hold hand over talisman]

I exorcise thee, O Creature of […], that the blessing of God Almighty be upon thee, and let all malignity and hindrance be cast forth hence from, and let all good enter herein. I cast out from Thee all the impurities and uncleanness of the Spirits of the World of Phantasm in the name of Almighty God, who liveth and reigneth unto the Ages of the Ages. Amen.

So therefore first, the priest who governeth the works of Fire must sprinkle with the Lustral Water of the loud resounding sea.

[Dip your finger into the Water Cup and trace a Cross above the talisman]

And when, after all the phantoms have vanished, thou shalt see that holy and formless Fire, that fire which darts and flashes through the hidden depths of the universe, hear thou the voice of Fire.

[Take the Censer and trace a Cross above the talisman]

 

[Vibrate the 3 Names of the Supernal Sephiroth]

EH-HEH-EH

IAH

YOD HEH VAV HEH ELOHIM

Holy art Thou, Lord of the Universe. Holy art Thou, Whom Nature hath not formed. Holy art Thou, the Vast and the Mighty One, Lord of the Light and of the Darkness.

[Light the White Candle]

Come forth unto me, Thou that art my true Self: my Light: my Soul! Come forth unto me: Thou that art crowned with Glory: That art the Changeless: The Un-nameable: the Immortal Godhead, whose Place is in the Unknown: and whose Dwelling is the Abode of the Undying Gods.

Heart of my Soul; self-shining Flame, Glory of Light, Thee I invoke. Come forth unto me, my Lord: to me, who am Thy reflection in the mighty sea of Matter! Hear Thou, Angel and Lord! Hear Thou in the habitations of Eternity; come forth; and purify to Thy Glory my mind and Will! Without Thee am I nothing; in Thee am I All-self existing in Thy Selfhood to eternity!

 

In the Name of ELOHIM TZAVAOT, I invoke the Archangel RAPHAEL. Send to me the power and influence of Mercury!

[Draw the sigil of Raphael in the air over the talisman]

Raphael

 

In the Name of EL, I invoke the Archangel TZADQIEL. Send to me the power and influence of Jupiter!

[Draw the sigil of Tzadqiel in the air over the talisman]

Tzadqiel

[Light Black candle]

In the Name of ADONAI, I invoke the Archangel AURIEL. Send to me the power and influence of Earth!

[Draw the sigil of Auriel in the air over the talisman]

Auriel

 

Great Archangels, called forth from the higher realms unto the lower, look with favor upon this, my petition, my prayer for prosperity. Charge this talisman with your sacred power! May it bring me monetary increase and financial security so that I might free myself from the obstacles of the mundane world,  and thereby advance in the Great Work! I ask that this be done without bringing any harm or strain of any kind upon anyone. May you bring the forces of exchange and expansion into my life through this rite of the magic of Light.

From the Supernal Crown of the Divine…

[Draw a large Flaming Sword/Lightning Flash figure in the air descending upon the talisman]

… to the Kingdom of Manifestation. As Above, So Below!

 

In the Name of the Lord do I now declare this rite finished. In the Worship of Holy Conformity and Obedience to the Divine Will: Consummatum Est! *

Tarot Prosperity Ritual

Saturn Talisman Consecration 6/24/2017

Saturn

 

As some of my family members have found themselves in need to move to a new home in a relatively short period of time, I found myself called to perform a ritual for them to find one. They are crunched for time and this poses an impending need that must be met soon. So here we are dealing with issues of real estate exchange, the home, and even the immaterial concept of the boundary of time; all things governed by Saturn.

Very recently, I had also made the choice to deviate from the astrological associations that the Golden Dawn assigns to the Hebrew letters. I’ve spent some time reviewing the associations set forth from the Sepher Yetzirah HERE, and after reading more about these conclusions I have decided to adopt those found as the listed majority. This source also aligns the tarot associations along the lines of these conclusions which I also resonate with strongly enough to dive right in a experiment with them.

Oddly enough, I had planned on again invoking the essence of the Hebrew letter Bet (as I did in my recent Mercury Invocation), as it not only represents the principle of the archetypal receptive container and cosmic boundary, but it also of course simply means “house”. However, as I researched the new list of aforementioned associations, I found, quite surprisingly, that Bet rules Saturn. Everything seemed to be aligning perfectly.

So I gave myself a solid week to prepare, which would nicely end up being on a Saturday, which would give me a time to do this comfortably upon the proper day of Saturn and in a Saturnian hour. Luckily a local grocer sells colored candles and I got myself 3 large black ones. Since Myrrh is sacred to Saturn energies, I grabbed my bag of incense and sorted out some to use (I quite like the smell of it).

The Hourglass is also a Saturnian symbol, that of time and human life, as well as the Skull, and I chose to display these upon the altar as a kind of tribute and a nod to the energies of Saturn. As an esoteric Freemason, I had already spent a decent amount of time with the symbolism of the Chamber of Reflection within both the context of the Order of the Temple of the York Rite Commandery and also the  Egyptian themed Rite of Memphis, where the Hourglass and other symbols like the Scythe and Memento Mori are all part of a ritualized meditation upon mortality. Interestingly enough, in this context, the CoR display and also the central Masonic theme of death is an important symbol of rebirth, a chance for new beginnings. All of this seemed fitting and complementary for the various initiatory experiences I’ve undergone, and I wouldn’t be the first to realign and repurpose those deeply personal experiences towards a magical goal, being that these are archetypal symbols that can connect one’s will through the psychological impact they have made on the mind.

In fact, I remember discussing with a group of esoteric Masons how the Chamber of Reflection could easily be a source for a unique solitary Masonic ritual, as such a thing could be used with great effect as a regular meditation if one so desired. That being said, I resolved to reinforce the ritual with 3 days after with my own version of a Solitary Chamber of Reflection meditation. For these 3 days I will take time out in the hours of Saturn to don my black robe and light a single candle with my hourglass and skull libation cup in order to create a certain sacred space in which to petition Tzaphqiel to guide and to give the proper magical drive behind the ritual. 

Bet

 

I even found a suitable group of Psalms with which to use during the lighting of the 3 candles; chapter 84 verses 1-4. These verses deal with finding solace in the House of the Lord, which I found quite fitting and desirable for my purpose.

Psalm
Psalm 84:1-4, Biblegateway

 

I then decided that I would consecrate a talisman for this ritual. Luckily I had one made already for another friend who would also eventually be looking for a new home. However since this was on a more pressing time constraint, I could always make another one. So I took the unconsecrated talisman and I realized that the back had yet to be painted with any design, so I painted a large Bet upon it, with the sigil of Saturn’s Intelligence within it, that of Agiel. The front side was painted with a triangle, and the Divine Name of Binah, YHVH Elohim, the Archangel, Tzaphqiel, and the Order of Angels, the Aralim.

SaturnTalisman

 

The ritual was constructed out of several sources. First I took the newest version of my talisman consecration template and adapted it, plugging in the correct names and aspects to that of Saturn and Binah and its corresponding hierarchy of entities and associated qualities. It was already heavily influenced by the 0=0 rituals of both the Golden Dawn and the FRC, but adapted accordingly. Those familiar will recognize, as usual with me, that the Z2 Formula is highly useful in its capacity to ‘initiate’ a living force inside an otherwise passively inert or uncharged target. I also incorporated several elements from my Mercury invocation as I found the format quite pleasing, most notably a segmented circumambulation, broken into sections of lighting candles, the number of which corresponds to the sacred geometry of the qabalistic/planetary association.

Since I was empowering a physical object with the essence of the Saturnian Hierarchy of Binah, I made sure to draw the correct sigils and vibrate them accordingly during their invocation. Directly after this was the Charge, where I give all the details necessary to carry out the task, which was of course omitted from this reproduction. Everything else is pretty straightforward and self-explanatory. Here is a rundown of the ritual:

 

  • Opening Prayers

-SATURN TALISMAN CONSECRATION-

[The central altar is decorated with the figure of the Triangle, a black candle at each point, and with the Saturn talisman placed in the center, wrapped in cloth. At the southern side of the altar there rests the Censer, and at the Northern side there is the Water cup.]

 

* * *  Procul, O procul este, profani!

 

The Lord is our Light and our help. In the Name of Him Who rescues us from the darkness and unredeemed places, Invest our Portals, O Lord, and guard our Thresholds. Do Thou clothe us in Thy grace and truth. The Light of the Supernals be upon us in the place of our devotion, and the Lord Who was with us from the beginning, insure the end. As our Temples are guarded without, let the heart be guarded within.

O Immanent and Transcendent Source and End of All, Lord of the Two Worlds, Thou hast set up Thy holy signs in all the quarters of the heavens, a revelation of Eternal Mind unto the mind of man. Thou dost speak to us by day and by night in Thy greater and lesser luminaries, Thy Suns and stars and constellations. Grant, I beseech Thee, that the hidden grace and the Radiant Light which abide in the Supernal Crown may be communicated to us. May whom Thou hast placed thereon dispense Thy Light and Grace. May You illuminate the Path of Thy Mysteries, and may that Light lead us even unto the attainment of the Quintessence, the Stone of the Wise, the Wisdom which has its root in Thee, and the Beatitude which is found in Thy Presence.

O Thou Who art from everlasting, Thou who hast created all things, and doth clothe Thyself with the forces of Nature as a garment, by Thy Holy and Divine Name YHVH ELOHIM, whereby Thou art known especially of the third emanation which I name Binah, the Sephirah of Supernal Understanding, upon the pillar of Severity, and that which rules the forces of Shabbatai, Saturn.

Lord, we ask that you deign to bless and sanctify this offering, that it may be pleasing unto You and Your Angels. As the Psalmist wrote: “Let my prayer be set forth before Thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.”

[Ignite the incense]

[Hold hand over Water cup]

Sanctify us, O Lord, in Thy mercy, and bless this creature of Water, which I have here set apart to Thy service, as an outward sign of graces that are communicated within.

So therefore first, the priest who governeth the works of Fire must sprinkle with the Lustral Water of the loud resounding sea.

[Bless Water Chalice/Aspergillum with Cross]

[Perform 3 water crosses in all quarters starting in East, South, West and North]

Waters of Understanding, Waters of the Great Sea, I have sanctified with water.

[Hold hand over Censer]

Sanctify us, O Lord, in Thy mercy, and bless this creature of Fire, which I have here set apart to Thy service, as an outward sign of graces that are communicated within.

And when, after all the phantoms have vanished, thou shalt see that holy and formless Fire, that fire which darts and flashes through the hidden depths of the universe, hear thou the voice of Fire.

[Bless Censer with Cross]

[3 fire crosses in all quarters starting with East, South, West, and North]

The Desire of the House of the Lord hath consumed me. I have sanctified with Fire. Stand about us in Thy Holy place, O Lord, and keep us pure in Thy precincts.

[Return to West of the altar]

In the Name of the Lord, I declare that the Temple is now open.

* * *

 

Have mercy upon me, O God, and grant your blessing unto my operation. I stand before the presence of the Almighty and before the messengers in His service, and I do declare myself, if it be the Will of the Divine, and with the assistance of the Hierarchy of the Heavens, to hereby act as Co-creator, Purifier, Consecrator, and Initiator of the mundane into the spiritual. I wish to bond with Planetary energies in order to empower this Creature of wood and to transform it into a genuine talisman of attractive power. Hear my prayers and guide my hand in this operation, O God, and I ask that your blessing be upon my motives, search my heart for true intentions and see that I only wish to place my trust in your hands in order to succeed.

Holy art Thou, Lord of the Universe. Holy art Thou, Whom Nature hath not formed. Holy art Thou, the Vast and the Mighty One, Lord of the Light and of the Darkness.

[Hold hand over talisman]

I exorcise thee, O Creature of wood, that the blessing of God Almighty be upon thee, and let all malignity and hindrance be cast forth hence from, and let all good enter herein. I cast out from Thee all the impurities and uncleanness of the Spirits of the World of Phantasm in the name of Almighty God, who liveth and reigneth unto the Ages of the Ages. Amen.

[Take talisman from altar]

The Voice of my Undying Soul and Secret Soul said unto me, “Let me enter the Path of darkness and peradventure, there shall I find the Light. I am the only being in the abyss of Darkness; from an Abyss of darkness came I forth ere my birth, from the Silence of a Primal Sleep. And the Voice of Ages said unto my Soul: “I am He who formulates in Darkness, the Light that shineth in Darkness, yet the Darkness comprehendeth it not.” Let the Mystic Circumambulation take place in the Path of Darkness which leads unto the Light, with the Lamp of the Hidden Knowledge to guide us.

[Walk to North of Temple facing East]

The visible Sun is the dispenser of Light to the Earth. Let me therefore form a vortex in this chamber that the invisible Sun of Spirit may shine therein from above. Let the white brilliance of the Divine Spirit descend!

[Circumambulate the Temple clockwise three times, visualizing the descended Light traveling with you, stop West of the altar and project this Light into the altar’s centerpiece via the Sign of the Enterer]

In the Name of the Lord of the Universe, who works in silence and whom naught but silence can express, I declare that the Sun has arisen and the shadows flee away!

[Perform Sign of Silence]

[Cross talisman thrice with Water Chalice/Aspergillum]

In the Name of the Fountain of Living Water, which cleanses the Children of Earth, and the heart of man, and the thought of man, and the will of man, I consecrate with Water.

[Cross talisman thrice with Censer]

In the Name of the Divine Desire, which transmutes the Life of Earth, and converts the heart of man, and the thought of man, and the will of man, I consecrate with Fire.

[Approach the Western quarter of the Temple]

In order that I may pass in this mystic journey, I proclaim that Darkness is thy name, thou great one of the Paths of the Shades. Before all things are the Chaos and the Darkness and the gates of the land of Night. Thou art he whose name is Darkness. Thou art the Exorcist in the midst of the Exorcism. I stand before thee without trepidation, for fear is failure, and I am without fear.

[Approach the Eastern quarter of the Temple]

Light dawning in the Darkness is thy Name, the Light of a Golden Dawn. After the formless Void and the Darkness, then cometh the knowledge of the Light. Thou art that Light which arises in Darkness. Unbalanced Power is the ebbing away of life. Unbalanced Mercy is weakness and the fading out of the Will. Unbalanced Severity is cruelty and the barrenness of mind. Thou art the wielder of the forces of Balance.

[Approach West of Altar, facing East, deposit talisman upon the altar, within the Triangle]

We have asked to be taken from the darkness, and with holy hands, lead us in the covert of holy wings. Lord, change the form of our purpose, and we shall see the Spiritual Sun in the place of knowledge.

Inheritor of a dying world, you are called to the living beauty. Wanderer in the wild darkness, you are called to the gentle light.  Child of Earth, long have you dwelt in darkness, quit the night and seek the day!

[Unwrap the talisman and take several moments to visualize a large glowing White Triangle above it]

Hail unto the Spiritual Light, enkindling the desire of the eyes of the world.

[Take several moments to visualize a glowing Red Cross above the White Triangle]

So long as I am dedicated to a renewed purpose, may this potent and sublime symbol be a link to my Higher Self, and as an aid in my search for the forces of the Light Divine forever.

Come in the Will of the Light; come in the Light of Purpose; come in the Mercy of the Light, for the Light has healing in its Wings.

[Pause for meditation before proceeding]

In the Name of YHVH Elohim, TZAPHQIEL, attend our worship, ARALIM, join us in these holy words.

[Begin with the segmented circumambulation, broken into 3 parts, so that the stations form a triangle around the altar, while pausing to read the scriptures]

“How amiable are Thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!”

[Light the Eastern candle]

“My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.”

[Light the Southwestern candle]

“Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even Thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.”

[Light the Northwestern candle]

“Blessed are they that dwell in Thy house: they will be still praising Thee. Selah.”

 

Upon this altar is depicted the form of the Letter Bet, she that is Saturn, she that is the Great Mother in the Sea of Binah, she that is the mighty Queen of Supernal Understanding of archetypal Form and celestial Boundary. We therefore invoke the Hebrew letter Bet as the archetypal Shelter as cosmic Dwelling, in its Saturnian aspect, as to dwell within and to make our very home the way of the Lord and the joy of the service of righteousness.

[Trace the letter Bet in the four quarters starting in the East, then South, West, and North]

With this essence and in the name of the Lord God YHVH ELOHIM [draw sigil]

YHVHelohim

Do we plead with the Almighty to send the influence of His great Archangel TZAPHQIEL [draw sigil]

Tzaphqiel

 

And with the power of the Order of Angels ARALIM [draw sigil]

Aralim

And with the guidance of the Intelligence AGIEL [draw sigil]

Agiel

I hereby request this charge of the celestial realm to empower this talisman to help …[Charge omitted]

Wherefore by these rites, these thoughts, words, actions, names, and images brought forth in this ceremony, by the Will of the Supreme God and of my Higher Soul, do I conjure upon you the power to carry out your work, and do I seal and bind in you my Will. You shall succeed in your task of assisting me and prosper in your work until the task is finished.

Unto Thee sole wise, sole eternal, and sole merciful one, be praise and glory for ever.  You who has permitted me, who now stands humbly before Thee, to enter thus far into the sanctuary of thy Mysteries. Not unto me, Adonai, but unto Thy Name be the Glory, now and forever more. Let the influence of thy Divine Ones descend upon my head, and teach me the value of self-sacrifice so that I shrink not in the hour of trial. But that thus my name be written on high, and my Genius stand in the presence of the Holy One. In that hour when the Son of Man is invoked before the Lord of Spirits and his Name before the Ancient of Days.

Let the final mystic circumambulation take place in the Path of Light.

[Circumambulate the Temple three times anti-clockwise, visualizing Light ascending from the altar and dispersing from the surroundings. Stop In front of altar and face East]

The mystical reverse circumambulation is accomplished, lest the Light of Divinity called upon hereto be profaned with mundane thoughts, words, and actions.

I declare this temple closed.

In the Worship of Holy Conformity and Obedience to the Divine Will:

* * * Consummatum Est!


 

Saturn Talisman

 

Saturn Talisman Consecration 6/24/2017

The Cordis Sanctae Ritual

I’ve decided to share one of our adjunct rituals publicly, an important one that focuses on visualization, uses the Psalms, and incorporates some traditional Catholic prayers to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. As you may have guessed, it is definitely a Christian-centered ritual and also the vibration of the Pentagrammaton. Despite all of these differing elements, the ritual is actually quite simple. [Credit also goes to Frater IEL and the work of the Ordo Lumen Christi for agreeing to let me publish our ritual].

This meditative visualization should be done sitting down, back straight and cross-legged, and should normally be preceded by the Lux Mundi Ritual [not yet publicly shared] or the LRP. In this context, one has effectively set a perimeter for the flow of Astral Light within both the designated physical area and the individual’s Sphere of Sensation. The Cordis Sanctae Ritual then fully internalizes this raised energy and focuses it directly into the heart center, assisted by the incantation of relevant Psalms and the appropriate prayer affirmations.

Note the usage of the words such as “we” and “us” in the prayer sections, as collective humanity is the ‘Body of Christ’, we are praying for all souls rather than just our own. The Psalms have their own egregore built up over time and are quite effective even just by themselves, but they appropriately further “charge” the visualization ritual, while the verses reflect the subject of the heart. Alternatively, this ritual may be condensed to a simple version consisting of only the posture and visualizations, without the prayers or scriptures.

 


 

Begin with the Opening, Psalm 19:14;

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”

As you begin to breathe regularly, visualize the Sacred Heart surrounding your entire body. Hold this image for a few minutes and continue to monitor the breath circulation. Raise your hands towards the heavens and embrace this encompassing Heart. As you’ve grown comfortable sitting ‘inside’ the Heart with your hands raised for several moments, read the following statement;

“O Christ Jesus, Redeemer of the Human race; behold us prostrate most humbly before Your altar in your presence. To You we belong; Yours we wish to be; and that we may be united to You more closely, we dedicate ourselves each one of us today to Your most Sacred Heart.”

CordisSanctae1

The next step is to clasp your hands above your head, firmly enough but not a stress on the muscles or to be a distraction from the visualization. Continue circulating the breath and begin imagining the Sacred Heart growing smaller, about the size of a beach ball now, and floating within your hands above your head.

 

CordisSanctae2

Read the purification Psalm 51:10;

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”

Hold the visual above your head for a minute and then read the next prayer section;

 

Praise to the Divine Heart, through which was brought to us salvation; glory and honor be to It for ever. O Heart of Love, we put all our trust in You; for we fear all things from our own weakness, but we hope for all things from Your goodness.”

 

Next, bring your hands down and cross them over the breast, with the fingertips barely touching both shoulder areas, covering your heart. At this time, in the rhythm of the breath, slowly shrink the visualization of the Sacred Heart above you and bring it down into the head, the neck, and lastly resting in the chest area. Imagine this warming your heart and surrounding bodily area. It is at this point where you will be breathing the deepest out of the three phases.

CordisSanctae3

Read Psalm 73:26;

“My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.”

Next is the last prayer section;

Most sweet Heart of Jesus Christ, grant that peace, the fruit of justice and charity, may reign throughout the world. Amen.”

After basking in the warmth of the Sacred Heart for several minutes with your hands still crossed, simply intone the Pentagrammaton six times, surging the heart center with warmth. Use your fingers to keep count if necessary. Take this time to vibrate the Word slowly, and also think of all the pain and suffering of the world that you are praying for. This section should take you out of your own world and place you in a state of compassion for all that ails this universe.

“YE-HE-SHU-AH” x 6

Close with the same words of the Opening, and a Glory Be;

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Glory Be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.”


 

 

The Cordis Sanctae Ritual

The Triple Rung Ritual- A Qabalistic and Elemental Exercise

TripleRungRitual

 

This ritual is a practical meditation on the three “rungs” of the Qabalistic Ladder of Lights; the crossbars of the Ari/Safed Tree of Life. It is both an activation of the Paths of Aleph, Mem, and Shin within the Tree that is built within the Sphere of Sensation, and also a direct complement to the modern Golden Dawn Middle Pillar Ritual. As such it is strongly recommended to perform this  directly after the Middle Pillar is finished. It can be performed either sitting down or standing up. Embedded within are Psalm verses that correspond to the Elemental nature of the three Hebrew Mother Letters, and is thus also an invocation of their essence. The vibrations of the Letters that connect each rung will therefore complete the charging of the centers of the SoS that correspond with the outer two Qabalistic pillars of Mercy and Severity. The combination of the Middle Pillar and Triple Rung rituals will be an excellent precursor to Pathworking or Rising on the Planes exercises.

The order of the rungs that are activated may be reversed once one is familiar enough to rearrange its aspects. The original order of the rungs, having first invoked the Divine Names of the Middle Pillar descending the Tree from top to bottom, are activated as ascending back up the Tree from bottom to top.

As we have ended the Middle Pillar Ritual with the invocation of the Earthy Divine Name of Malkuth, Adonai Ha-Aretz, and are thus now working our way back up the Tree, we begin with a simple meditation upon the esoteric acronym of V.I.T.R.I.O.L., and it’s meaning should be well recognized by occult practitioners of Alchemy and even certain circles of Freemasonry that use it in the Chamber of Reflection. In this context, we allow its use to be directed almost as a kind of statement of intent to be connected to the Earth element.

That being said, as we commence with Earth and work our way up through the elements, the chosen Elemental Psalm to begin is chapter 33 verse 8.

The Path of Mem, the rung bridging Hod with Netzach, connects the mental energies of the Intellect with the emotional energies of Desire. It’s element is Water, and the Elemental Psalm chosen is chapter 33 verse 7. This rung corresponds also to the region of the belly or the bowels.

The Path of Aleph, the rung bridging Geburah with Chesed, connects the aspects of Severity/Contraction to the aspects of Mercy/Expansion. It’s element is Air, and the Elemental Psalm chosen is chapter 33 verse 6. This rung corresponds also to the region of the chest or the lungs.

The Path of Shin, the rung bridging Binah with Chokmah, connects the aspects of Archetypal Understanding/Form to the aspects of Archetypal Wisdom/Force. It’s element is Fire, and the Elemental Psalm chosen is chapter 29 verse 7. This rung corresponds also to the region of the head or the brain.

We finish off the ritual with the Psalm chapter 104 verse 30, and this relates directly to the Spirit of God rejuvenating the Earth, or in this case, the circulation of higher energies throughout the body.

As you can see, through the activation of the three rungs, the three major centers of the body are also affected and may therefore be useful as a balancing rite for those involved in healing work as well. Most importantly, as a complement to the Middle Pillar, the other Sephiroth are activated through a mystical use of the Psalms in order to provide a more advanced meditation upon the entire Tree. One may also choose to vibrate the Divine Names of the associated Sephiroth if you wish.

The coupling of these two rituals illustrates a symbolic circulation of Divine energy, firstly that of the Descent and manifestation of Creative energy becoming grounded in the realm of the Below through the Middle Pillar, and secondly through the Ascent of aspiration towards Unity in the realm of the Above. The entire process is therefore symbolic of mankind’s Reintegration with the Divine Source, both in Body and in Mind, but most importantly in that of the Spirit.

 

 

-The Triple Rung Ritual-

Visit the interior of the earth, and with rectification, you will find the hidden stone. “Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.”

Lord, rectify for us the gate of Splendor and Victory. “He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: He layeth up the depth in storehouses.” MEM.

[As you vibrate the Letter Mem, visualize the blue rung of the Tree being illuminated across your stomach]

Lord, rectify for us the gate of Mercy and Severity. “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.” ALEPH.

[As you vibrate the Letter Aleph, visualize the yellow rung of the Tree being illuminated across your chest]

Lord, rectify for us the gate of Understanding and Wisdom. “The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire.” SHIN.

[As you vibrate the Letter Shin, visualize the red rung of the Tree being illuminated across your head]

“Thou sendest forth Thy spirit, they are created: and Thou renewest the face of the earth.”


As you finish the ritual, it may be wise to perform the Circulation of the Body of Light or some simple meditative breathing work like the Four-Fold Breath.

 

 

 

 

 

The Triple Rung Ritual- A Qabalistic and Elemental Exercise

Mercury Invocation- 5/24/2017

Mercury

Here we are, May 24, 2017, Wednesday, the day of Mercury. The Astrological positions for Mercury today are 8° Taurus, in House II.  So, it’s been a while since I performed any larger operations. I have been focusing on other smaller projects, but have been itching to do something a bit more involved. It occurred to me that there may be some serious blockages in my life, and Mercury, being the planet/entity that corresponds to flow, change, fluctuation, communication, the intellect, data exchange, road-opening, and magic in general, I figured that this would be a good time to start increasing my work with Mercury. Up until now, I haven’t worked with Mercurial forces very much, and I aimed to change that by commencing this relationship with a strong and heartfelt invocation.

Of course, I prefer to do this through the angelic and Qabalistic channels that properly correspond to Hod, the eighth Sephirah upon the Tree of Life, that which has Mercury as its assigned planet. It’s color is often Orange and Yellow, though I chose to use Orange for this Rite as the main decoration for the link to the Golden Dawn Queen Scale of Hod.

I composed a ritual that combined several different elements. The opening prayers were taken from some self-initiatory versions of the Fellowship of the Rosy Cross grades my group created, and of course other elements of the traditional Golden Dawn influence will be more than apparent.

Mercury Altar

Some of you know me too well, I’ll take any excuse to make a new altar block or centerpiece! I’m a bit artistic, I can’t help it. Plus, I really think that this type of work, putting your efforts into making the ritual just right and creating various tools, can really connect you to the forces you’re after in wonderful ways. It doesn’t have to be all perfect, either. Since the number of Hod/Mercury is eight, I woodburned a large Octagram/Octagon within a circle onto a square piece of sanded wood for an altar centerpiece.

Octagram

This figure would be the center of the altar and provide points for candles to be placed. I try to incorporate sacred geometry into the Work whenever I can, the layering of symbolism only adds to the correspondences and adds to the effects of Ritual Consciousness.

I also painted up an old candlestick that was waiting for a new purpose. I started with a base color of bright orange, and in blue, I painted Raphael’s name in Hebrew upon the base, with eight petals at the root of the stem, and eight dots upon the top portion.

Mercury candlestick

I had some photos printed out and framed for this rite as well. The first was a nice painting of the Archangel Raphael (I simply added the Planetary seal near the bottom and cropped with Orange and Blue).

RaphaelPicture.png

The second was a quick digital coloring and crop of the Magician tarot card (this version by Barbara Moore, you can get the rest HERE).

MagicianCard2.png

I thought these would be excellent additions to my meditations, so I picked up some frames for them to look all purdy and such. The Magician card was chosen because it has Mercury as its correspondence, and by further association, the Hebrew Letter Bet.

From there, I got the idea to spend the preceding week reading and meditating on the Bet section of Paul Foster Case’s ‘The Book of Tokens’, which is an excellent little book of poetry pertaining to the Hebrew Letters and their tarot counterparts. I thought it fitting to begin the meditation on the Magician card with this, as PFC does a great job of delivering some quality spiritual poetry. At the end of the ritual I basically used the Magician as a mandala and kind of lost myself in its symbolism while letting it sink in to my consciousness, which was altered via ritual by then.

I closed the entire ritual with in the Name of the Trinity.
Here’s an overview of the ritual;

  • Opening Prayers
  • Invocation of Elohim Tzavaot
  • Presentation of the Offerings (incense, food, candles)
  • Invocation of the Archangel Raphael and the Order of the Angels Beni Elohim
  • Circumambulation (this part calls upon the astral light and circulates it around the altar, while being broken up into eight sections, divided by the reading of Mercurial biblical verses, mainly Psalms, and the lighting of eight candles placed upon the vertices of the Octagram/Octagon centerpiece)
  • Adoration of the Lord of the Universe (here the collected astral light with the circumambulation is projected to the altar via the Sign of the Enterer and sealed with the Sign of Silence)
  • Invocation of the Magician tarot card
  • Reading of the Bet section in PFC’s ‘Book of Tokens’
  • Meditation on the Magician tarot card
  • Closing Prayer

-MERCURY INVOCATION RITUAL-

[The central altar is decorated with the figure of the Octagon/Octagram, an orange candle in the center, etched or painted with the symbol and/or seal of Mercury, surrounded by eight tealights.  In the Eastern quadrant there is the censer with Mastic incense, a depiction of The Magician tarot card, and a depiction of the Archangel Raphael.]

* * * *   * * * *  Procul, O procul este, profani!

The Lord is our Light and our help. In the Name of Him Who rescues us from the darkness and unredeemed places, Invest our Portals, O Lord, and guard our Thresholds. Do Thou clothe us in Thy grace and truth. The Light of the Supernals be upon us in the place of our devotion, and the Lord Who was with us from the beginning, insure the end. As our Temples are guarded without, let the heart be guarded within.

O Immanent and Transcendent Source and End of All, Lord of the Two Worlds, Thou hast set up Thy holy signs in all the quarters of the heavens, a revelation of Eternal Mind unto the mind of man. Thou dost speak to us by day and by night in Thy greater and lesser luminaries, Thy Suns and stars and constellations. Grant, I beseech Thee, that the hidden grace and the Radiant Light which abide in the Supernal Crown may be communicated to us. May whom Thou hast placed thereon dispense Thy Light and Grace. May You illuminate the Path of Thy Mysteries, and may that Light lead us even unto the attainment of the Quintessence, the Stone of the Wise, the Wisdom which has its root in Thee, and the Beatitude which is found in Thy Presence.

O Thou Who art from everlasting, Thou who hast created all things, and doth clothe Thyself with the forces of Nature as a garment, by Thy Holy and Divine Name ELOHIM TZAVAOT, whereby Thou art known especially of the eighth emanation which I name Hod, the Sephirah of Glory and Splendor, upon the pillar of Severity, and that which rules the forces of Kokav, Mercury.

God of Hosts, we ask that you deign to bless and sanctify this offering, that it may be pleasing unto You and Your Angels. As the Psalmist wrote: “Let my prayer be set forth before Thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.”

[Ignites the incense and the central candle]

In the Name of Elohim Tzavaot, RAPHAEL, attend our worship, BENI ELOHIM, join us in these holy words.

[The Magician begins with the circumambulation, broken into 8 parts, so that the stations form an octagon around the altar]

“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.”

[lights first candle]

Remove from us our obstacles Lord, and grant us safe passage unto the opening of roads, upon the paths of righteousness.

“Shew me Thy ways, O Lord; teach me Thy paths.”

[lights second candle]

We are your children, lost on our way back home to the splendor of Thy unity. Bring us ever higher and assist us in the true ascent.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

[lights third candle]

We find solace in the Divine Silence, in that hidden world within, where we are moved by the Holy Spirit and the guiding hand of the Father. Keep our lamps lit with Truth and Love, O Lord.

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

[lights fourth candle]

Our days are made joyous as we live in Your Will, but our own glory is but a reflection of Your own. Our faith and trust is put in You, our God, that we will find the path of truth and that our success will be because of your mercy.

“Hold up my goings in Thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.”

[lights fifth candle]

How often do we falter when our houses are built upon sand, when our faith is put in the world and not in Your way. Grant us the keys of wisdom, that we may open the doorways of new opportunity.

“He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.”

[lights sixth candle]

We cannot be satisfied with worldly treasures, for we are only made whole through spiritual unity and the guidance from on high.

“I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron.”

[lights seventh candle]

That which imprisons us and suppresses our highest potential will be broken down by the hand of God. Clear our pathways Lord, increase the flow of our possibilities.

“In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”

[lights eighth candle]

As we learn to dissolve our will into the Will of the Father, we set ourselves upon the path of return, a return to the source, a return to oneness, a return to the place whence we were cast down.

All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.”

 

The Lower self cares naught but for its own desires, but strengthened may we be if we listen to the voice of the Highest within us. Then, and only then, may our broken parts be mended, our very souls repaired.

Holy art Thou, Lord of the Universe. Holy art Thou, Whom Nature hath not formed. Holy art Thou, the Vast and the Mighty One, Lord of the Light and of the Darkness.

[Perform Sign of the Enterer, projecting at the altar, then perform the Sign of Silence]

Upon the table of offerings there is depicted the form of the Magician, he that is Mercury, he that is master of the tools of magic and of complete control, he that is strong of character and of mind, he that uses the knowledge of practical things to unravel the Sacred Mysteries and apply the link between the Supernal Crown with the Supernal Understanding. We therefore invoke the Hebrew letter Bet as the Shelter or Dwelling of self-mastery, in its Mercurial aspect, as to dwell within and to make our very home the realm of fluctuation, of adaptability, and of adept control over all cognitive processes; for clarity of mind and direction as we accept the role of Magus in order to become the channel between the Above and the Below, between the Divine and Man.

[Briefly place right hand pointing to the heavens, and left hand pointing to the Earth] 

O Magician, he that channels the fleet-footed messenger of the gods, invest us with the qualities of consciousness, creation, and action, and let us become as the lightning rod of spiritual manifestation, as vessels for true inspiration and to be filled with Holy Breath. Give us the power to break the barriers that block our way, to release the potential for Holy blessings, and to bridge these connections with others so that we may do the same for them. We therefore solemnly swear, as craftsmen employed at the site of the spiritual Temple, not to abuse this power, nor let it go to waste, lest we profane the divinity of our inner Will and slow the motion of our positive change.

[The Acolyte then reads the Meditation on the Hebrew Letter Beth from the Book of Tokens and meditates upon the image of the Magician afterwards]

In the Name of the Blessed Trinity do I close this ritual, may the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit guide us on the path toward Reintegration forever more.  * * * *   * * * *

– – – –   – – – –

Right before closing the ritual, I spent some time praying through Raphael/Elohim Tzavaot and specified what I was trying to accomplish. Even though I enjoy well thought out scripted ritual, I still strongly believe that there should always be room for free-form prayer from the heart, so I made sure to speak genuinely in addressing my concerns and my goals for such a devotional rite. I ended the ritual in thankfulness.

One interesting little tidbit as well, I had a quick vision of lightning when I assumed the Magician’s ‘As Above, So Below’ posture. After doing a bit of research I realized that Mercury also governs the nervous system and electricity. So there’s that, which was interesting. This coincides with my intention to become a conduit for the blessings of the Divine, and I suppose I should expect nothing less than quick bursts of revelation like this during times of Mercurial inspiration.

The Zodiacal Rosary and Eucharist

 

ZodiacalHierarchy

I have decided to dedicate this blog to an exposure of some of the work intended for my magical group, so that all who have been asking can see what exactly the beginner’s basic weekly rituals are. In this group, new members take on a probationary period where they connect with Zodiacal forces for 12 months before moving on to further Elemental and Planetary work. Since I often find myself posting photos of my altar setups before beginning my operations, I have gotten a few questions, so I’ve decided to share the most basic part of the probationary work and also the explanatory transcript that the members would read before beginning the process. This would be the Zodiacal Rosary and Eucharist. Sometimes we refer to these collectively as the Sunday Solar Rites because they aim to connect the user to Solar energies, and also to the blessings of Tiphareth.

In the graphic above you will see the correspondence between the Zodiac signs, the Divine Names (12 Permutations of the Tetragrammaton), and their ruling Archangels, all in their respective colors. I collaborated with some much more experienced magicians on this list and it should be noted that this list may differ from others. If you are new to using these correspondences, I would say to do a bit of research, choose a list, and stick to it. Choosing a differing list will NOT stop you from using the Rosary/Eucharist ritual detailed below. Experimentation may lead you elsewhere, or you can use our list as detailed simply in the graphic. Those unfamiliar with Hebrew or the Zodiac signs will need to approach this work after learning the basics, but for the sake of simplicity, here are the correspondences:

Just so there is no confusion, as for the terms and titles used here, it should also go without saying that this is not THE Rosary of Mother Mary being used, much less not THE Sacramental Eucharist of the Church either. The rosary is simply used as a convenient counting device and an arrangement of prayer patterns that fits our needs because of its popular availability, and the Zodiacal Eucharist is just another way of empowering an object not unlike similar methods to consecrate magical tools with Astral Light or to “charge” something with a specific current of energy, in this case it uses the appropriate Archangel of the current solar sign.

 

Here, I reproduce the accompanying educational document text in full, so you can see exactly how this ritual and the material is presented. This is a simple ritual that can be done once a week and carries great potential for invoking the forces of balance into your life.-

 

-THE O∴S∴S∴ ZODIACAL ROSARY AND EUCHARIST-

During the year long probationary period within the order, on every Sunday, the planetary day of Sol, the candidate will perform a series of invocations, and a simple visualization with the rosary that will charge and empower a Eucharist. The purpose of this is to primarily connect the candidate to all twelve aspects of the Sun through the Zodiac during the year. As Sol is both the center of our universe, and also the center of equilibrium on the Qabalistic Tree of Life as Tiphareth, the candidate will be forging a deep connection with the forces of balance, before moving on to Elemental and further Planetary work. This is also an opportune time to practice invocations, devotional magic, and a simple visualization that will empower a Eucharist, that which will serve to ground all of these forces into the physical plane.

There are twelve permutations of the Tetragrammaton; the four lettered Name of God found in the Holy scriptures. Each permutation relates to a sign of the zodiac. These are the Divine Names, chief aspects of the One God, that will be petitioned in each devotional ritual as a ruling hierarch above the corresponding zodiacal Archangel. The candidate will be expected to keep track of the Sun’s travels through the zodiac, so as to use the appropriate entities during the rituals. This is simply a matter of plugging in the correct Names and understanding their relationship to the movement of the celestial bodies. Online sources can be found easily for tracking these cycles, and the candidate is expected to keep track of these during the year with minimal assistance from sponsors.

A ritual template will be provided for the candidate to use during this time. After plugging in the correct Names, a Yellow candle should be burned, its color obviously corresponding with the Sun, along with some sort of a visual representation of the Divine Name and the Archangel. These should be drawn on a slip of paper, a notecard, or even printed out, if the candidate is not artistically inclined, to place underneath or beside your yellow candle upon your altar. However, a more personal connection will be made to the work if a simple drawing of the Names and sigil is attempted. It need not be perfect, no one is judging artistic ability here, only the attempt to perform the rituals effectively and suitable consistency is observed.

During these rites, you and your altar should ideally face the East, the quadrant of the rising Sun. However, if this is not possible with your furniture arrangement, simply set up your sacred space as you are able, and physically face East when you perform the ritual.

-ABOUT THE O∴S∴S∴ ZODIACAL ROSARY-

 

Screenshot_2017-04-17-11-59-19-1.png

It is necessary that a rosary be obtained. These can be found cheaply at a local religious store or online. Any traditional Catholic rosary will be suitable; those that at least have the standard five decades of beads. We understand that these practices may be new to some of our members, and for those that are new to the rosary, it would be beneficial to briefly research how the standard rosary works, and then learn the  O∴S∴S∴ version. Our version is slightly easier to manage, having shorter repetitions of words rather than whole phrases for each decade bead. Obviously, ours is focused towards both a magical and a mystical application, having to the goal of petitioning the zodiacal Divine Aspect and Archangel for their blessing and guidance along the path of inner growth and readiness to progress in the Great Work.

Another aspect of the rosary, and for many other parts of occult work, is Vibration. To vibrate a Divine Name is to slowly chant the Name with a deep resonation that connects one to its cosmic energies at a very personal level. This does not have to be done loudly, but only that the candidate instill a sense of reverence and meditation as this is done, and this way it can be performed at any volume in order to be considered effective. In fact, some occultists employ what they call “the Great Voice”, a method of meditatively intoning or chanting these Names at a very quiet or silent voice. Use these Sunday rituals to experiment with what method works best for you. If one still needs help understanding this, there exist many online audio and video clips that describe the method of vibration, or simply contact your sponsor or fellow members for assistance.

This rosary also invokes the Angel forms of the Three Mother Letters of the Hebrew alphabet, Aleph, Mem, and Shin; those forces which are understood within Qabalah as the three primary Elements, Air, Water, and Fire, respectively. From those cosmic elements, all creation thrives. By invoking their angelic forms you are allowing them to be manifested with a life force previously passive, into your active realm. You are stirring these entities and their creative elements within you. Naturally this section of the rosary is reserved for the group of three beads near the beginning, and is significant in its place as a method to initiate these primordial forces within ourselves.

CONCERNING THE EUCHARIST-

As the devotional ritual and rosary serves to call down the forces of the Sun, filtered through the current sign of the zodiac, and balanced by virtue of the Divine Name and Archangel, these forces naturally need a way to magically manifest themselves into the physical plane. Usually, the living effigies of ritual candles and incense provide a means for this process, but here we empower a Eucharist to be ingested by the candidate to fully ground this energy invoked from the heavens, down into the physical plane. Any small piece of food will do, though it is suggested to simply use a piece of bread, or even better, to purchase a supply of Communion Hosts through a religious store. The point is to provide a medium to be transformed into a physical aspect of the forces called upon.

The way the Eucharist is “empowered” is through visualization during the rosary recitations and vibrations of the Names. As the Spiritual, Mental, Astral, Etheric, and Physical planes are all intricately connected, the aspiring magician imagines a funnel of descending Light upon the Eucharist during the rosary. Not only will this direct the force during the ceremony, but it will aid the candidate in practicing to develop their visualization skills, which are quite important in the long run. You are creating links in the upper realms of existence and providing a way for them to manifest.

This entire ritual should be done every Sunday for the duration of the twelve month probation, and if possible, also initiated at one of the Planetary hours of Sol. Online and mobile applications can easily be checked for these details, though it is not wholly necessary to do so, the planetary Day will suffice, preferably if the Sun is still out before the hours of evening.

If ritual is new to you, the conditions of meditative ritual consciousness will become apparent to you through the reverence of the forces invoked, and will also become easier to initiate with continued practice. This is the nature of devotional magic, calling down these forces so that they may bestow their many blessings upon us in their many hidden ways. You will eventually find that this routine will be a refreshing act of balance and centering in your weekly life, and it will attune you to the cosmic forces of equilibrium necessary to make positive applications of such energy and vitality brought by the sphere of Sol.

Next, use the above diagram of the Zodiacal Rosary to help understand how we adapt it to our Sunday Rites. 

The only thing that should need explanation here is the ‘Qabalistic Cross’, which is the first section of the Zodiacal Rosary. This comes to us from the Golden Dawn section of the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram, and is a powerful way to invoke the proper forces of balance, and also to build a strong axis of Astral Light within your Sphere of Sensation, by way of vibrating the proper words that correspond to the centers of the Sephiroth of the Qabalistic Tree of Life. Being that the Tree is both a Macrocosm of the Divine universe and also a Microcosm of Man himself, the Sphere of Sensation can house a mini-version of this sacred geometry within it to be fully worked with in more advanced ways. For now, we are empowering the intersection of a large cross of Light and invoking the balance of the Divine energy through a Hebrew version of the Protestant ending to the Lord’s Prayer; ‘For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory, forever, Amen.”

To perform the Qabalistic Cross, referred to as the ‘QC’, one first does a bit of visualization. While breathing deeply and steadily, picture your soul growing larger and larger in increments that suit you, until you see yourself standing above your home, your city, your state, and eventually you will have the Earth itself right under your feet. Here you will bask in the vastness of a starry universe with infinity all around you.

Bring your right hand up to just above your head, and visualize a ball of glowing Light that you will draw your luminous line from. Bring down a line of Light to your forehead/third eye area and strongly vibrate the Hebrew word for Thou Art; “ATAH”.

Bring down your hand to the middle axis of your body and point to the ground, where you illuminate the Earth at your feet, vibrating the Hebrew word for Kingdom; “MAL-KUTH”.

Draw your hand back up the middle axis again and now point to your RIGHT shoulder while vibrating the Hebrew word for Power or Strength; “VE GE-BURAH”.

Now cross your hand to your LEFT shoulder, all while visualizing a path of Light illuminating a large cross within your body, and vibrate the Hebrew word for Glory; “VE-GEDULAH”.

Cross your hands over your chest and fully imagine the large cross in blinding light within yourself while vibrating the Hebrew word for Forever; “LE OLAM”.

Lastly, bring your hands from the crossed position on your chest to the prayer position several inches in front of your chest and vibrate “AMEN”.

This completes the Qabalistic Cross. The more you perform this short ritual, the easier the words will come to you and the easier it will be to quickly energize your SoS for further work. One may hold the Rosary Cross in their right hand while they perform this ritual if they wish.

Now you may continue with the Rosary ritual, vibrating the Names of the Hebrew Mother Letter Angels and the correct names for whatever Sign the Sun is in for the day.

After performing the whole Zodiacal Rosary, you may then continue with the Zodiacal Eucharist Ritual, which is detailed in full here in the following.

 

-ZODIACAL EUCHARIST RITUAL-

You will have your yellow candle at the ready, previously illuminated, underneath which rests a notecard inscribed with the Divine Name, Archangel, and sigil of the Archangel (those sigils found in the Zodiacal Correspondences file). Aside to this is your Eucharist.

    Begin the invocation of the Zodiacal Hierarchy;

“Under the authority of the Zodiacal Permutation of the Tetragrammaton; [Vibrate Divine Name], that which rules the sign of [Zodiacal Sign], and by the illumination of the Archangel [Vibrate Archangel Name], Thee I invoke! Glorious forces which shine through the rays of the Solar sphere and the stars above, I invite your guidance unto my Higher Self as I strive to build myself into an honorable exemplar of the highest Virtues. Guide my thoughts, my words, and my actions, unto the glory of the Lord of the Universe!”

    Next, above the Eucharist, draw in the air, visualized in the correct zodiacal color found in the Hierarchy chart, the sigil of the appropriate Archangel. Done in bright colored astral Light, trace from this source a line of Light, down towards the Eucharist itself, further visualizing a funnel of energy from the Above to the Below. Proceed to consume your Eucharist and close the entire Rite with the Oratory Closing.

 

-ADVANCED USE OF THE ZODIACAL ROSARY-

    After growing comfortable with the Sunday Solar rites, you will gain a certain metaphysical momentum and begin to develop the ability to do more with the ritual than originally intended in its basic form. Here are some of the potential advanced uses for the Zodiacal Rosary you may experiment with, though these suggestions are not required by any means.

    As one goes through the vibrations of the Divine Name and Archangel name using the rosary, you will notice that your concentration may become divided and your thoughts may wander, once you have enough familiarity with the entities you are invoking and the entire operation in full. This is no different than what can happen during normal prayer or any usual meditation or ceremony that is done with any regularity. The question becomes, then, what can we do about this?

The best thing we can do, instead of fighting it for one-pointed consciousness or complete mental quiescence on the one hand, we can take these wandering thoughts and focus them on a specific goal instead. By giving yourself an outlet and a goal for each meditation, you can turn these wandering thoughts into a powerful tool for affirmations or a medium for creative visualization. A simple way to employ this technique is to start the entire operation by praying for a specific goal, state it plainly and give your spiritual energy a focus. For example, one might pray for the health or prosperity of your friends or family, or of course yourself. Then, as you develop the comfortability with repeating the vibrations of the Names during the rosary, allow your thoughts to be focused on some very simple creative visualizations that pertain directly to your goal. In the case of our example, you might visualize yourself becoming more successful in your career with a raise, a promotion, or with better relationships and business connections on your path. Or if praying for health, picture various situations where you are not struggling with weight, diet, exercise, or simply overcoming sickness.

If you are familiar with Sigil magic, this would be an ideal time to strongly visualize the sigil of your intention during your vibrations. Another idea may be to find a specific Tarot card that employs symbolism that is sympathetic to your goals, like the Sun card for health, or maybe one of the Pentacle pip cards that relates to prosperity. Tarot and sigils are an excellent way to condense your desired imagery and translate them via the appropriate archetypes, these can act as effective symbolic vehicles for your intentions.

Those familiar with Qabalistic Pathworking or Sphereworking may also incorporate this into the Sunday Solar rites as long as they pertain to the goals of  reaching the energies or awareness of Tiphareth or the Path of Resh, or the Sephiroth of the Middle Pillar. The material of Denning and Phillips is ideal for creating advanced imagery for astral work, but therein lies the danger of making this operation more complicated than it needs to be. Beware of drifting too far from the main goal of becoming aligned with the energies of the Sun; those that bring balance and harmony to the practitioner.

So there you have it folks. Click HERE for a video explanation of the same. I encourage those looking for a new ritual routine to experiment with the Sunday Solar Rites and to use the Rosary and Eucharist to connect with Zodiacal/Solar forces for balanced blessings.
