Appendix IV - A Hermetic Ritual of Self-Initiation

Required:

Civit perfume/oil1 Black candles

Square of parchment or woven paper Silver pin Quill-type pen Petriochor incense

Time of Ritual:

Sunset at Full Moon

The Ritual:

Incense the room/Temple area or chosen locality with the incense and light the candles. Take a bath, perfuming the water with the oil - if outdoors, bathe in a lake/stream and use the oil after this. Return to the Temple area.

Visualize for several minutes the following sigil:

1 If necessary these can be obtained from The Sorcerer's Apprentice, 4 - 6 Burley Lodge Rd., Leeds LS6 1QP, England. Ideally, you should make most of them yourself.

Then vibrate three times 'Noctulius'. Chant or vibrate after this the following:

'Suscipe, Atazoth, munus quod tibi offerimus, memoriam recolentes

Noctulius.'

Lightly prick your left thumb with the pin and with the pen, using the blood, inscribe the following sigil on the parchment:

Show this parchment first to the West, then South, East and North saying 'With this sign I seal my quest!' Then burn part of the parchment in one of the candle flames, laying the partially burnt parchment between the candles.

Raise your arms above you and visualize the moon (if outdoors and the sky is clear and the moon visible, look directly at the moon) and imagine energy into yourself, then imagine it flowing gently away, drawn into Earth by your feet.

After the visualization, extinguish the candles with your thumb and finger and leave the Temple area. As soon as possible thereafter, take the parchment and cast it into a fast flowing river or stream. The ritual is then complete.

Note: If possible, arrange the ritual outdoors in the vicinity of a stream/river on a night when the full moon is visible.

Appendix V - Preparation for Hermetic Rituals

Hermetic rituals or workings are usually undertaken for a specific desire and it is important, before you begin a ritual using a specific technique, to be clear about the nature of this desire. That is, you should have an idea - either in your imagination or in words - of the goal you wish to achieve by using magick.

It is important that this goal be specific - that is, limited to one thing. Once you have defined what it is you wish by magick to achieve - and it can be anything, from wealth, success, love, health, cursing an individual - then spend some time thinking of possible visualizations that represent your goal as well as trying to find some simple and evokative phrase which captures that goal.

The visualization chosen should not be too complex - for example, if you desire to achieve success in an interview for a job, make the visualization either of yourself receiving a letter confirming your success, or imagine yourself dressed as you would be for the interview hearing someone saying 'Congratulations! We are prepared to offer you ...' If, on the darker side, you wish to harm an individual by magick, then choose a visualization which involves that individual undergoing some form of suffering -for example, imagine their face contorted in agony from stomach pains. Once you have chosen a suitable visualization, keep creating it in your mind for several days before the intended working but without introducing any emotion into it.

To choose a phrase to represent your goal is fairly easy - for example, to obtain someone's love: 'Let N.N. become possessed of love for me.' As with the visualization, repeat the chosen phrase several times in the days before the working but again without emotion.

The techniques of hermetic magick aim to produce from within you a controlled frenzy - a powerful surge of physical and emotional energy. This energy is then directed into the visualization and in the shouting/screaming, vibration of the chosen phrase.

Your aim during a working should be to almost lose control of yourself with an emotion appropriate to the type of working (although this does not apply, for example, to internal magick and most techniques of hermetic healing). Let movement of your body draw some of this energy from you - and not be afraid during working to laugh, cry, scream or shout.

A working should leave you feeling both physically and emotionally exhausted - if it does not, then you have not put enough effort into it.

Prepare your working well in advance - gathering the equipment, finding a suitable location, preparing the area you have chosen. Anticipate both the pleasure of the working and the magickal power which you as a magickian will bring forth and control. Try to be in an expectant and nervous frame of mind by the day of the ritual as this will increase the power of the working. Do not, however, worry of the success of it - you must believe that you are going to succeed, that you will, through magick, control your own life. Feel the powerful Destiny of the magickian - it is very helpful in the days before a working, if you consciously attempt to act the role of sor cerer/Sorceress. Surround yourself with items of magickal interest, burn incense in your place of dwelling, wear a piece of jewelry which you feel is magickal, dress in a different way (for example, all in black). Cut a short wand from a hazel tree and inscribe/carve it with magickal symbols - choose for yourself a special magickal name and carve this name upon the wood.

If you prepare in such a way you will begin the working ready to unleash the primeval power within you.

The Illustrated Key To The Tarot

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
