Notes

The student of Enochian magick may find fruitful correlations between this thirty-fold structure and the 30 Aeons of classical Gnostic symbolism (cf. G. R. S. Mead, Fragments of a Faith Forgotten) and the developments of E. J. Gold in his New American Book of the Dead. 2. Aleister Crowley's Vision and the Voice (Liber 418) is the classic exploration of this metaphysical realm, and though available in a variety of formats (including free and online) it is best represented in The Equinox Vol. IV...

The Watchtowers as a whole 1 The 4 Castles

Unto everyone of them be 4 characters, (tokens of the presence of the son of God by whom all things were made in Creation.) The figures are...

Conclusion

In the chapters following, each of these divisions will be dealt with in detail and the mechanics and literature of each analyzed. This analysis will proceed, naturally, from the Watchtower hierarchies of the elemental realms of the Earth through the planetary spheres of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth and the various heptarchial structures related to it, to the aethyric realms of the 30 Aires. The divisions of the Aires will then be correlated back to their earthly junctions within the network of the...

During this period their formation evolved and changed and produced a number of arrangements that often confuse the practitioner of the Enochian system. The Golden...

The Book of Enoch Elemental System

The Watchtower structure is probably the most familiar part of Enochian magick. It has been popularized by the Golden Dawn and its descendants. In fact much of the material presented in the initial degrees of these orders, such as the Lesser Pentagram and Hexagram Rituals10 , are designed to prepare the student for working with the ultimate integration of the various symbols of Hermetic and Cabalistic magick that is the heart of the second order of the Golden Dawn11 . This integration and...
