Evocation of ANODOIN

An oldie but goodie, written back in the 90’s. 

Evocation of ANODOIN

An evocation of ANODOIN, Mercury Senior
of the Great Southern Quadrangle of Fire

[The ritual is to be performed during the course of the Tejas tattva; that is, 48 minutes after sunrise (or in 2 hour increments after that time). The day should be Mercurii, or alternatively dies Solis. Luna should be full, or waxing.

Let the magician be robed as for his grade. At the center of the Temple is the black cubical altar, with Liber AL vel Legis placed at the center, and the Triangle with the Cross surmounting it on top. Also on the altar are the Censor and Incense, some coals, and the Cup of Purification, properly prepared. Incense should be Olibanum, or some similar fiery odour. To the South of the Temple is the Enochian Watchtower of Fire hanging from a stand, with a red votive before it. At the beginning, the tablet is covered in a red burse. The magus is armed with the Wand.]

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

[Stand West of the Altar, facing East in silent meditation. When ready, begin thus:]

* This Ritual is an Invocation of ANODOIN, the Mercury Senior of the Great Southern Quadrangle of Fire.

OPENING

[ When ready, begin by purifying the Temple by water. Take up the Cup, and walk to the East:]

“For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every way perfect.”

[Purify E, S, W, N, walking about the temple as you do so. Complete circle in East, then return directly West of Altar, facing East.]

[Perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.]

[Take up the Censor, and walk to the East of the Temple:]

“I am uplifted in thine heart; and the kisses of the stars rain hard upon thy body.”

[Consecrate E, S, W, N, walking about the temple as you do so. Complete circle in East, then return directly to West of Altar facing East.]

[Perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram.]

[Returning to the Altar, direct your aspiration to the Highest, and perform the Supreme Invocation of the Holy Guardian Angel.]

[Trace Ä in the air above Altarthen assume the Sign of Set-Triumphant while invoking with the Ib en Suti]

[Assume the Sign of Baphomet, and allow the connection with the Lord to take seat.]

INVOKING THE FORCES OF FIRE

[Perform the Greater Invoking Pentagram Ritual of Fire.]

* * * Let us adore the Lord and King of Fire! [Face South.] YOD HEH VAV HEH TZABAOTH! Blessed be Thou! Leader of Armies is Thy Name, Amen[Give Sign of Philosophus.]

[Quit the Throne and proceed to the South, before the Tablet of Fire. Unveil the Tablet (if all four are in the Temple, they should all be unveiled at this point). Make with Scepter, in the air before the Fire Tablet, the Invoking Circle; Invoking Active Spirit Pentagram; and Invoking Fire Pentagram.]

And the Elohim said: “Let us make Adam in our image, after our Likeness, and let them have Dominion.” In the Name of ELOHIM, Mighty and Ruling,  and in the Name of  YOD HEH VAV HEH TZABAOTH, Spirits of Fire, adore your Creator!

[Taking the Censor from before the Tablet, and making therewith the Sign of Leo in the air before the Tablet:] In the Name of MIKHÆL, Great Archangel of Fire, and in the Sign of the Lion, Spirits of Fire, adore your Creator!

[Making + with the Censor:] In the Names and Letters of the Great Southern Quadrangle, Spirits of Fire, adore your Creator!

[Elevates Censor on high:] In the three great secret Divine Names that are borne upon the Banners of the South, OIP TEAA PDOCE, Spirits of Fire, adore your Creator!

[Trace the invoking whirl:] In the Name of EDLPRNAA, great King of the South, Spirits of Fire, adore your Creator!

[Replace Censor. Return to station at East of Altar.]

In the Name YOD HEH VAV HEH TZABAOTH, I declare that the Spirits of Fire have been duly invoked. * * * * * * *

[The 6th Enochian Key:]

INVOKING THE GREAT SENIOR

[Pause to confirm that the Tablet has been opened. Feel the invoked forces. Next, facing South, perform the Greater Invoking Hexagram Ritual of Mercury.]

[Again, pause to feel the invoked forces. Now begins the invocation proper of the Senior. Elaborate as felt necessary; however, they are without a doubt called simply by repeating their Name unde the regency of Our Lady:]

In the Name of BABALON, I call Thee forth:

ANODOIN [repeat as necessary.]

[Once invoked, announce who you are. Then, in the name of BABALON whom They love and adore, make your request of the Great Senior. State your request as clearly and as simply as possible.]

[When your communications are complete, thank him and bid him farewell. Next perform the formal Closing and License to Depart:]

CLOSING

The Prayer of the Salamanders or Fire Spirits.

Immortal, eternal, ineffable, and uncreated, Father of All Things, borne upon the eternally rolling Chariot of ever-revolving Worlds; Ruler of the Ethereal Vastnesses, where the Throne of Thy Power is upraised, from the summit of which thine awesome eyes disclose all, and thy beautiful and holy ears hearken to all: Hear Thou thy children, whom Thou hast loved since the birth of the Ages. For thy Majesty golden, vast, and eternal shineth, above the world and the Heaven of Stars. Above them art Thou exalted, O Thou Scintillating Fire! There dost Thou blaze and maintain Thyself by thine inherent Splendour, and from thine Essence flow forth inexhaustible Streams of Light which nourish thine Infinite Spirit. This Infinite Spirit nourisheth all things, and maketh that Inexhaustible Treasure of itself to the Forms with which Thou most Holy Kings who art about thy Throne, and who compose thy Court, O Universal Father! One and Alone! O Father of blesséd mortals and immortals.

Thou hast specially created Powers which are marvelously like unto thine eternal Thought and unto thy venerable Essence. Thou hast established them above the Angels, who proclaim they Will unto the World. Lastly, Thou hast created us third in rank within our Elemental Empire. There our continual practice is to praise Thee and to adore thy desires. There, we burn unceasingly, aspiring to possess Thee.

O Father! O Mother, the most tender of mothers! O wonderful Archetype of Maternity and of Pure Love!

O Sun, the flower of all Sons! O Form of all forms, Soul, Spirit, Harmony, and Number of all Things! Amen!

[Before Tablet, perform the Banishing Mercury Hexagram; Banishing Fire Pentagram; Banishing Active Spirit Pentagram; and Banishing Circle.]

Depart ye in peace unto your abodes and habitations. May the blessing of ELOHIM be upon you. Be there ever peace between us; and be ye ready to come when called. *

[Veil the Fire Tablet. If all Tablets are in Temple, they should all be veiled at this point.]

[Perform the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram of Fire.]

In the Name of YOD HEH VAV HEH TZABAOTH, I declare this Temple closed in the element of Fire, and this rite concluded. *** * ***

On The Diamond Sapphire

“The Mani-stone is the ‘jewel’ of the Seven Stars and of the Graal of the Scarlet Woman, in her scarlet phase. […] The ‘other’ star is the Diamond Star-Sapphire of Manifestation.”  – Outer Gateways, Kenneth Grant

Solve et Coagula: Alchemical Symbolism of the Double-Headed Eagle

A research paper that I wrote back in 2008. Also appears at Pietre-Stones with illustrations.

SOLVE et COAGULA:
ALCHEMICAL SYMBOLISM
of the
DOUBLE-HEADED EAGLE

PREFACE

One of the most prevalent emblems of the Scottish Rite is that of the Double-Headed Eagle.  Mentioned briefly in comparison to the white-lambskin apron of the Craft Lodge, the symbol of the double-headed eagle is perhaps one of the most ancient emblems in Scottish Rite, having been represented for thousands of years in many of the worlds cultures.

What is the significance of this symbol such that it has found its way into the mythology and symbolism of so many cultures over time? As a symbol, the image embodies many layers of meaning, each of which are significant. The eagle itself has always represented such ideas as nobility and just rulership. The large wings are protective, while the razor sharp talons inflict punishment to evil.  The noble white head indicates just and aristocratic ruler. Strength, courage, foresight and immorality have all been associated with this image.

What, however, of the double headed eagle? Something in this image speaks to humanity at a primal, archetypal level. As a symbol, it is capable of transcending language, race, history, time itself – and presenting to the mind a presence of transformation and the eternal truth of man’s real nature.

In order to understand this symbol we will necessarily have to venture into the recesses of the secret chambers of our hearts, the true sanctum sanctorum or secret shrine of the Divine. At the portico to the temple of Apollo at Delphi were said to be inscribed in gold letters the words GNOTHI SEUTON meaning “Know Thyself.” The symbol of the double-headed eagle will be found to harkens back to this simple instruction of the Greek sage Pythagoras; an instruction which is the gateway to Light and Truth, and the perfected nature of man when elevated to the highest.

 

HISTORICAL SIGHTINGS

In the Louvre are two large terra cotta cylinders dating from approximately 3000 BC covered completely in cuneiform characters. Recovered from the remains of the Babylonian city of Lagash they record the foundation of the city by Gudea. The cylinders recite the story of the King, how the county was in drought with the “waters of the Tigris fell low” and the people feared that the gods were displeased. King Gudea had a dream in which a divine man came to him; a man whose stature was immense, with his feet firmly on the earth and his head reaching to the heavens, and upon his head was the corona of a god surmounted by the Storm Bird that extended it wings across all of Lagash.  Read more of this post
