The Thirty Aethyrs

Andan Angel cometh forth, and he taketh me aside into a little chamber in one of the nine towers. This chamber is furnished with maps of many mystical sities. There is a table, and a strange lamp, that gines light by jettingfour columns of vortex rings of luminous smoke. And he points to the map of the Aethyrs, that are arranged as a flaming Sword, so that the thirty Aethyrs go into the ten Sephiroth. And the first nine are infinitely holy.

Aethyr

Enochian Magick describes thirty Aethyrs or Aires that are situated above/behind our physical world. Unlike the Watchtower Squares, the Aethyrs are positioned in serial order from number 30, TEX, the lowest and most material, to number 1, LIL, the highest and most spiritual.

Here again you must remember that "high" and "low" are not to be tallen literally, but figuratively. These Aethyrs can be compared to the Sephiroth and Tarot Paths of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, but the only exact correspondence is the tenth Aethyr, ZAX, which is the Abyss, the location of the eleventh Sephiroth, Daath.

The Aethyrs are shown in Appendix E and each is fully described in Enochian Magic. Like the Qabalistic Tree of Life, they serve as a powerful structure for the subtle cosmic planes and subplanes that are invisible to our physical eyes but are nonetheless real. The diagrams in Appendix E can serve as crude road maps through these regions for anyone who decides to travel there. Each region has a presiding atmosphere and contains forces, intelligent and non-intelligent, that are characteristic of that region. Table IV is a summary of the major signposts of the thirty Aethyrs.
