The practice of sexual magic as free as possible from the lore and doctrines of specific schools and sects, so that more persons can more easily make use of the basic formulas discussed in FS or any other material. It will come as no shock or surprise if I say that human sexuality is a subject long surrounded by layers of ignorance and misconception. These layers are generated as much by religious bigots of the Judeo-Christian tradition as by the often equally narrow clinical proponents of the...

Initiation Into Brotherhood Of Sarturn

Nect the rites to sects of pre-Christian Gnostics.12 Other masses and rituals are derived from the O.T.O. (pre- and post-Crowleyan), and from Crowley's revisions of Golden Dawn formulae reflected in his A.'.A. In addition, the FS freely innovated from what can be gleaned from Rosicrucian, tantric, goetic, and Gnostic practices and rituals. From Gregorius' novelized account we have a good idea of what initiation into the lodge is like.13 The first part of the ceremony takes place in an...

Organization of the Brotherhood of Saturn

Eritis sicut Deus scientes bonum et malum The Initiatory Path The FS had at one time or another several lodges working simultaneously, encompassing dozens of members who were trained and initiated through a graded hierarchy of thirty-three degrees. This required a fairly sophisticated and complex organizational structure and magical curriculum. The FS has a specific philosophy as to what constitutes initiation. This is articulated through their grade system, which generally allots special work...

Llewellyns Teutonic Magick Series

Teutonic Magick is as vast as the northern sky and as deep as the shrouded northern mists. Many of the most powerful forms of magick in the West were developed to an early perfection by Teutonic magicians Albertus Magnus, Agrippa, Paracelsus some were even elevated to the level of legend, such as Faustus. Teutonic Magick is multifaceted it has its own innate traditions those of the ancient Germanic peoples (Anglo-Saxons, Germans, Dutch, Scandinavians) and in addition it has those of the general...

Brotherhood Of Saturn Ritiuals

Space in an informal order and go to their rightful and alloted places. F.W. Very well Seat yourselves, my brothers and sisters Now the entry music begins perhaps In these Holy Halls from Mozart's Magic Flute or another kind of music corresponding to the character of the evening's work. After a short pause the F.W. gives three knocks of the hammer as he proceeds My brothers and sisters Cross your arms over your chests and close your eyes Slip away from the anxiety and cares of the workaday...

Saturnian Gnosis

Demiurge Saturnus

These astrophysical phenomena are seen as the outward manifestations of the War in Heaven. The Luciferian Principle is understood as an expelled spark of the divine which has struggled through the darkness of matter, where this principle manifests itself as crystalline structure and as light. It struggled its way further through the kingdoms of plants and animals, and eventually emerged in humankind where the spark was liberated. Although generally ignorant of its true home and origin, this...

Nietzschean Thelemism

Nietzscheans

The official motto of the FS is Tue was Du willst ist das ganze Gesetz, es gibt kein Gesetz ber tue was Du willst. Liebe ist das Gesetz Liebe unter Willen Mitleidlose Liebe. Do what Thou wilt is the whole of the Law, there is no Law beyond do what Thou wilt. Love is the Law Love under Will Compassionless Love. The first part of the motto is the familiar Crowleyan Thelemite formula, which is left unaltered. The second part, which is the response to the first, has been slightly altered in...

Hans Horbiger Cosmic Fire And

Ize the exalted state of solitary freedom. As the name of the order indicates, the Frater-nitas Saturni places a heavy emphasis on astrological doctrines or astrosophy. The teachings which involve Saturn are derived from a basically Gnostic cosmology, in which the planet Saturn is identified with the Demiurge and with the Guardian of the Threshold H ter der Schwelle , who comes between the initiate rising through the planetary spheres and their access to the firmament and the light. As...

Occult Magician

Tepaphones Spirit

This was part of a general field of interest among initiates of the FS, a field which included the study of, and experimentation with, the magical effects of high-frequency sound, electromagnetic fields, so-called Tesla energy, ozonization of the atmosphere, ultraviolet light, etc. In the FS these theories were usually spoken of in connection with teachings concerning aethric waves, or the chakra system. This brought the discussion into a more traditional magical framework. Very little is...

Rudolph Steiner Pentagram

Von Liebenfels

Was the ariosophy of von List, von Liebenfels and others, and the Anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner. The original pansophy of Heinrich Tr nker was an attempt to synthesize all forms of occult teachings then in practice. This, however, proved a difficult task, as there seemed to be no unifying element or central focus for the maelstorm of occult lore swirling around in the pansophical movement. It was the Fraternitas Saturni and Gregor A. Gregorius, directly or indirectly through the acceptance of...

Brotherhood Of Saturn

The Fraternitas Saturni FS , the Brotherhood of Saturn, has become known to English readers through fragmentary descriptions which emphasize the sensational, sex-magical aspects of this lodge's work or else its darker, more Satanic, side.1 This is understandable in light of the fact that the FS is or was the most unabashedly Luciferian organization in the modern Western occult revival, and its practice of sexual occultism perhaps the most elaborately detailed of any such lodge. The FS...

History of the Brotherhood of Saturn

As with all organizations of an occult nature, accurate and consistent historical data for the FS is hard to obtain. On some aspects there is an abundance of information, while on others we are left to speculate. In this chapter, I want to trace the history of the FS as an organization and as an idea, and at the same time remain as much as possible within the context of events in the contemporary occult subculture. Documents within the FS1 point to the idea that on some mystical level there is...
