Real Masculinity and Manhood
Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius are called Masculine. These include the fiery triplicity, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, and the airy triplicity, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. The feminine signs include the earthy and watery triplicities. Earth and water are negative and inert, but are acted upon by the positive elements. The winds stir the waters of the ocean and volcanic fires shake the earth. Therefore the fiery and airy signs are called masculine. The 'Feminine Signs.'
Now, regard this idea as from behind the Veil of Light, the third Veil of the original Nothing. This light is the menstruum of manifestation, the goddess Nuith, the possibility of Form. This first and most spiritual manifestation of the feminine takes to itself a masculine correlative, by formulating in itself any geometrical point from which to contemplate possibility. This virginal goddess is then potentially the goddess of fertility. She is the idea behind all form as soon as the influence of the triad descends below the Abyss, there is the completion of concrete idea.
Note that, on the subject of these two symbolic Gates , that they are analogous to those guarded by the god Janus, the two-faced god, half masculine and half feminine, whose Festivals were located at the Solstices of Winter (Door of Heaven) and Summer (Door of Hell). The Zodiac has retained the esotericism of these two period in the signs of Capricorn (the Goat, which ever has a tendency to climb) and of Cancer (the Crab, who creeps in the slime.). In astrological symbolism Cancer, equivalent to Janus Inferni corresponds anatomically to the Uterus, in the body of woman. This is truly the infernal door by which the human Soul, abandoning the superior states of the Divine Plane, is incarnated and becomes trapped in a body of flesh, held in the malefic vortex of the Wheel of Fortune.
It is the principie weapon of the Magias. The Wand is used in both invocations and evocations. Yours is aLso ara embodiment of your creative power. When charged with a masculine force iit symbolizes the lingam. In Enochian Magick the Wand is the symbol of Fire, and is especially used in those operations involving tthe Watchtower of Fire. THE SWORD. The Sword symbolizes your ability to reason. The magical Sword is the analytical faculty of the mirad. As your mental faculties dissect complex iideas and theories, so the sharpness of the Sword will cutand pierce through things. When you pierce a demon with your Sword, you simultaneously strike iit with rational logical thought. The Sword thus aids to see through illusion and complexity. The nature of this weapon is destructive. It is also divisive. The blade should be steel, the metal of Mars. It is considered a crude weapon and its use is usually restricted to the Watchtowers and lower Aethyrs. Its...
Sources, but open to ideas, deities and rituals from many other Neopagan belief systems. We worship the Earth-Mother as the feminine personification of Manifestation, Be'al as the masculine personification of Essence, and numerous Gods and Goddesses as personification of various aspects of our experience. We offer no dogmas or final answers but only continual questions. Our goal is increased awareness and harmony within ourselves and all of Nature. We are willing to interact philosophically and ritual with members of all other belief systems, including all other Branches of the Reform, that are compatible with our own approach and Nature. We accept our duty to assist Evolution, on all levels, and to work for the survival of our Holy Mother the Earth.
Many of the diseases to which civilized man is subject are undoubtedly caused by this common habit of mouth breathing. Children permitted to breathe in this way grow up with impaired vitality and weakened constitutions, and in manhood and womanhood break down and become chronic invalids. The mother of the savage race does better, being evidently guided by her intuition. She seems to instinctively recognize that the nostrils are the proper channels for the conveyal of air to the lungs, and she trains her infant to close its little lips and breathe through the nose. She tips its head forward when it is asleep, which attitude closes the lips and makes nostril-breathing imperative. If our civilized mothers were to adopt the same plan, it would work a great good for the race.
At first sight it would appear that the formula is the union of the extremely masculine, the big blond beast, with the extremely feminine, the princess who could not sleep if there was a pea beneath her seven feather beds. But all such symbolism defeats itself the In dealing with Zeus, one is immediately confronted with this deliberate confusion of the masculine and the feminine. In the Greek and Latin traditions the same thing happens. Dianus and Diana are twins and lovers as soon as one utters the feminine, it leads on to the identification with the masculine, and vice versa, as must be the case in view of the biological facts of nature. It is only in Zeus Arrheno thelus that one gets the true Hermaphroditic nature of the symbol in unified form. This is a very important fact, especially for the present purpose, because images 6f this god recur again and again in alchemy. It is hardly possible to describe this lucidly the idea per tains to a faculty of the mind which is above the...
You should see the goddess Bastas outwardly soft and feminine yet inwardly hard and stern. The male sphinx here is a lion with a human head. The atmosphere in this square is charged with a strong masculine current which is somewhat balanced by the femininity of Bast.
Search the square for the Egyptian deity. You should see the goddess Sothis, a beautiful naked woman. As goddess of evolutionary development, she can initiate you finto the mysteries of the feminine current which is strong in this square. The sphinx that accompanies Sothis in this square is a large lion with strong wide wings whose legs end in sharp eagle claws. This sphinx possesses both feminine and masculine characteristics. STEP 10. The astrological force working in this square is Leo, the solar creative power. The Tarot influence is Strength Lust which manifests here as a very strong desire to create. The presence of the feminine current of Sothis and the masculine current of Leo will produce a blissful feeling in anyone who sees these currents in union here. The sexual nature of this square is similar in content to that encountered in the 16 th Aethyr, LEA.
See Atu XI again - Babalon is the Goddess riding on the Beast. Note that you call upon Nuit & Babalon but cry the other names. This may be significant in that the LA (feminine) forces are perceived as lying outside the direct sphere of your influence, and are requested in a softer manner than the masculine
Answer The Ari had stated that from his time (the 16th century) onward the study is permitted for women, children and servants, meaning for the entire population and all the parts of the desire. Women, children, gentiles, the whole of mankind must know the upper force. But because we are divided to a masculine and feminine part on all levels of reality, in the upper world as well as in our own, the study of Kabbalah consists of two systems of study, for men and for women. Each study according to its own correction, its structure and the way it behaves. It is simple the entire reality is divided to masculine and feminine from top to bottom, through all the worlds. That division also exists in our souls. It begins in the spiritual worlds, and determines that there will be two genders in our world as well, which is why there is a clear separation between men and women both in the approach to the study, in the correction that is needed, in the entrance to the upper worlds, the way they...
Yoga is a word deriving from a Sanskrit root meaning 'Yuj and means essentially join . While the traditionalists mean join with God the Luciferian means join with the Adversary , meaning the Daemonic Masculine and Feminine. The Luciferian is essentially a Sadhaka, being a spiritual aspirant of the left hand path, seeking to make his or her body a balanced, spiritual and physical Temple of the Adversary, to grow strong and immortal in mind through the initiation on the Satanic or Luciferian path.
As we have seen, the various personalities are grouped round two types, the grandfather and Ulrich von Gerbenstein. The grandfather produces nothing but sanctimonious twaddle and edifying moral precepts. Ulrich von Gerbenstein is simply a silly schoolgirl, with nothing masculine about him except his name. We must here add, from the anamnesis, that the patient was confirmed at the age of fifteen by a very pietistic clergyman, and that even at home she had to listen to moral sermons. The grandfather represents this side of her past, Gerbenstein the other half hence the curious contrast. So here we have, personified, the chief characters of the past here the compulsorily educated bigot, there the boisterousness of a lively girl of fifteen who often goes too far.113 The patient herself is a peculiar mixture of both sometimes timid, shy, excessively reserved, at other times boisterous to the point of indecency. She is often painfully conscious of these contrasts. This gives us the key to...
As you enter deeper into the Aethyr you will see that it contains an important initiation that you must undergo. It is the Mystery of the Rose and the Cross. The Rosy Cross is a symbol for the union of the masculine and feminine currents. These currents rhythmically swirl through OXO. The feminine current is the strongest and is emphasized, but enough of the masculine current is here to provide the initiation. A successful initiation in OXO will furnish an understanding of the true purpose of life. It is a divine dance, the tila' of Hinduism, a creative expression of the
But what is it which is analogous unto him The Holy Name because it is written, Gen. ii. 7 'And IHVH ALHIM, Tetragrammaton Elohim, created ADM, Adam, Man,' with the full Name, which is IHVH ALHIM, analogous to him (Adam), seeing that IHVH, Tetragrammaton, denoteth the masculine, and ALHIM, Elohim, the feminine.
Use your magical imagination. See the region of your head as intensely feminine. See the region of your spine and the base of your spine as intensely masculine. Choose your own symbols here to aid your imagination. The masculine spine and feminine head must be seen as two separate and distinct areas of your body.
The Scarlet Woman of the Cult of Thelema is a modern manifestation of the attempt of 'correction' by the status of woman as an incarnation of perfection. Understand well that the sorcerer can become great once he or she has understood the inspiration or Shakti within and how this affects the masculine, both are present in living beings.
MEDITATION Utilize the methods of Ahrimanic Yoga to begin stirring the Kundalini, raise the fire snake within the Temple of Self, encircling and joining with the Black Serpent, Ahriman. Az-Kali-Lilith is indeed the path to inspiration, imagination and stirring emotion. Nothing is possible without the balance of the Feminine and Masculine, to believe otherwise is folly.
Free yet knowledgeable about our process of how it is obtained and further developed. Aleister Crowley, who had initiatory workings with Spare early in his career, understood the desire of the sacred Whore called Babalon and realized the masculine as the Lion-Headed Serpent called Yaltabaoth or Samael, however Crowley called it Abraxas by name. While neither were able to manifest those names during their life times and surroundings, the force was present and on their minds throughout their own lives.
While invoking the four elements, thereby drawing to yourself the combined forces of the Watchtowers, attain one-pointed concentration on your inner divinity-your Holy Guardian Angel whose symbol is the geometric point, the center of your Magical Universe whose circumference is symbolized by the Magick Circle. The point is masculine while the surrounding circle is feminine. See yourself as an infinitesimal point of consciousness surrounded in all directions by infinite space.
It is of critical importance to avoid the pitfall of consciously searching for intriguing lights, sounds, visions, etc. Our goal is to be a conscious, but passive, observer. The goal is not entertainment. The goal is connection and peace. The simpler the better. Don't try to get fancy or get attached to different colors or visuals. We are in the masculine mode if we are trying to make something happen. We have to train ourselves to distinguish between searching for and trying to control (masculine) and
This ritual is for magicians at all levels of Enochian Magick. It employs the formula of IAO. Perform it to transmute your karmic debts by letting them become projected from you and then dispelled. The ritual first invokes a typical feminine current and then uses the masculine current of MAZ for balance and completeness.
The first swirlings of Chockmah can be seen as the shadowing of both the Yod of AIN and the stage of AIN SVPh in the three veils. The masculine potency of this Sephirah, in its position at the top of the positive pillar, can also be seen in the glyph of Yod as representing either the hand or the seed. In the symbol of the hand we see the movement and sign of action as Kether expands forth into the explosion or big bang of Chockmah.
The passage from one world to another is often attended by more or less unconsciousness, like sleep, as Wordsworth says, and for the reason our consciousness may be fixed upon the world we have left. In infancy heaven lies about us in actual fact children are all clairvoyant for a longer or shorter time after birth, and whoever passes out at death still beholds the material world for some time. If we pass out in the full vigor of physical manhood or womanhood, with strong times of family, friends, or other interests, the dense world will continue to attract our attention for a much longer time than if death occurred at a ripe old age, when the earthy ties have been severed before the change we call death. This is on the same principle that the seed clings to the flesh of unripe fruit, while it is easily and cleanly detached from the ripe fruit. Therefore it is easier to die at an advanced age than in youth.
We have stated that the vital body is the storehouse of both the conscience and subconscious memory upon the vital body is branded indelibly every act and experience of the past life, as the scenery upon an exposed photographic plate. When the Ego has withdrawn it from the dense body, the whole life, as registered by the subconscious memory, is laid open to the eye of the mind. It is the partial loosening of the vital body which causes a drowning person to see his whole past life, but then it is only like a flash, preceding unconsciousness the silver cord remains intact, or there could be no resuscitation. In the case of a Spirit passing out at death, the movement is slower the man stands as a spectator while the pictures succeed one another from death to birth, so that he sees the first happenings just prior to death then the years of manhood and womanhood unroll themselves youth, childhood and infancy follow, until it terminates at birth. The man, however, has no feeling about them...
The first Aethyr, LIL, and all the inconceivable realms above the first Aethyr are without sex, which is to say that masculinity and femininity do not exist as separate qualities in those sublime regions. However, below LIL each subplane downward into the physical plane is charged with forces that are either masculine or feminine or combinations of both. Masculinity and femininity are two sides of a duality. Your Great Work is to unite all dualities. The union of microcosm and macrocosm, the subjective self with its objective world, implies the union of all dualities including sexual polarities. It is your task as a magician to seek within yourself all of those qualities characterized as masculine or feminine. Modern psychology suggests that every man has a feminine psychic component and that every woman has a masculine psychic component (this idea is expressed in the Jungian descriptions of the anima and animus). In other words, a person outwardly male is inwardly female and vice...
The VOVIN is very similar to the VRELP, but there is one major distinction. The VRELP is largely an expression of the solar current while the VOVIN is largely an expression of the lunar current. The VRELP uses the masculine current for his work The VOVIN works chiefly through the feminine current. The student is reminded however, that the ultimate work itself, i.e., the Great Work, is the same. The VOVIN and his her work is an extremely important part of Enochian Magick To aid in your study and approach to the VOVIN, the following Magick Square can be used as a talisman
Of course, there is a difference between sex and sex magick. But by understanding that the sides of the Tree of Life are masculine and feminine, and even the Tetragrammaton is composed of masculine and feminine letters, one can see the inherent sexuality of the Kabalah. But, let's get practical.
The Ritual of the Priestess of the Silver Star invokes the feminine current and simulates a journey to the 19th Aethyr.The Ritual of the Pyramid invokes the masculine current and simulates a journey to the 18th Aethyr ZEN. The Dragon Ritual is designed for the advanced magician who desires to assume the responsibilities of the Magical Dragon. The Ritual of Vrelp stimulates a journey to the 14th Aethyr VTA and the City of the Pyramids. The Ritual of the Abyss simulates a journey to the Great Outer Abyss. The imagery used in these seven rituals is designed to simulate as closely as possible actual journeys to these Aethyrs.
YUD-HEH-VAHV-HEH is known as the holy, ultimate and unspeakable name of God. Its true pronunciation is unknown. In English we could say that it is formed of the letters Y-H-V-H. Jews never pronounce the word, instead saying Ah-doh-nye. By placing the Hebrew vowels of Ah-doh-nye (which means my lord ) around the four letters which are known as the Tetragrammaton, the word Yahovah or Jehovah is formed. Therefore, to use these names shows a total misunderstanding of this holy name. Yahveh or Yahweh is also a misnomer, an attempt to pronounce a word with no vowels. You see, YHVH may merely be an abbreviation for a longer word or a code for other letters. It is possible that some of the letters of this name are doubled. No one knows for sure. YUD-HEH-VAHV-HEH is the English transliteration for how the Hebrew letters, represented by the YHVH, are named. The Y or YUD is said to represent archetypal masculinity (the Taoist Yang or Jungian Animus), and the first H, called the HEH Superior,...
There are five elements or tattvas - air, water, earth, fire and ether. One of the goals of yoga is to balance and integrate all five elements of our being. Practice of the techniques and postures goes a long way to achieving this goal. However, performance of techniques is only half of the story. We must also cultivate a conscious awareness of the shifts that are taking place. The mechanics are the masculine aspect of the practice. The awareness is the feminine aspect of the practice. We often associate intuition with the third eye and the mind. The mind is the masculine aspect of intuition. The feminine aspect of intuition works through the instinctual self and the senses of the body. This exercise set, which involves using the breath while applying *rootlock, facilitates instinctual awareness. After the exercise, sit or lie very still and simply be aware of the sensations in your body. Over time you will realize that these sensations are a powerful and accurate information system....
When you first enter ASP you will notice an atmosphere similar to that in ZAA. You will be totally alone with yourself. There will be no colors, no sounds, and no forms. Gradually, as you accustom yourself to this region you will sense time and destiny flowing together. This o p will take on form in a symbolic way, possibly as an avenue and or a blowing wind. You will observe that the center of the Aethyr contains a throned Angel. Even if you do not see a throne, the impression of this Angel will be one of a ruler, an authority whose word cannot be ignored. The current emanating from this Angel will seem cold and masculine. This is also the impression that you will get from staring into his face. This Aethyr contains the masculine energy of Jupiter combined with the feminine energy of Juno. This is because of its proximity to the Sephiroth Chesed which is ruled by Jupiter. These combined currents cause a mixture of visions to be encountered when you first enter here. As you accustom...
The symbolism here is very important for you to clearly understand. The residents of VTA have shed their blood and are reduced to a little pyramid of dust. But they did not shed their blood into the Cup of Babalon and are thereby confined to VTA. The Lord of the City of the Pyramids is also reduced to a pyramid of dust but he shed his blood into the Cup of Babalon and thus shares in both the masculine and feminine currents. One of your magical tasks is to earn the title of the Lord of the City of the Pyramids yourself.
Attention to and hold the experience of the infinite in our consciousness. Masculine and Feminine Talents Human development is dominated by learning how to be in control, take action, initiate and be responsible for our lives. These masculine talents are critical pieces of our maturation process. Basically we learn what we have to do to get what we want. An infant cries to get fed. As a young child we learn to ask for what we want. If our direct requests are not fulfilled, we learn to manipulate others and situations to get our needs satisfied. Later we learn to earn a living and integrate the concept of exchange into our survival strategies. In the process of learning the masculine talents of asking, earning and exchanging value to get our needs met, the feminine skills are often neglected, undervalued and misunderstood. In a male-dominated world, the feminine concept of surrender is often misinterpreted as giving up and giving in. This is because we feel like victims of unknown...
This ritual is designed for the experienced magician. Beginners are advised to carefully study the ritual, its symbolic meanings and gematric correspondences before practicing it. It simulates the initiatory processes that are encountered in the 18th Aethyr, ZEN, and will invoke the strong masculine current that pervades the Vault of Zen. All Enochian names and phrases must be vibrated properly during the execution of this ritual.
Pushu - the first level of initation, where one is overcome with desire and lust. Here Adamu should be a guide towards the foundations of practice. Utilize the tool of the Daemonic Feminine, Lilith, as understanding the deeper desires of your mind and body. Lilith is the mother which leads you to isolation but fills your spirit with self-reliance and strength from within. The mystery is revealed that Lilith is within, the very Red matter of ash formed to divinity. Ahriman is the Beast of the Masculine, that which creates and expands it's will, Sexual Magick should be a tool of discovering these aspects and grasping them to manifest your will and become that which you seek. In this level of initation, the initiate should restrict sexual activity for a self-
The sexual currents, both masculine and feminine, that course through the Aethyrs are summarized in Table VII. These currents are the natural result of the division of monadic essence into the duality of all things below LIL. The chief characteristic of the masculine current is consciousness devoid of feeling. The chief characteristic of the feminine current is bliss devoid of intelligence. The masculine current is cold, uncaring, logical, and highly intelligent. It is unaffected by Sword or Dagger but can be turned by the Cup. The feminine current is hot, irrational, and highly charged with varying emotional forces. It is impervious to the Cup but can be checked in various degrees with the Sword, Dagger or Wand.
For who knows how to turn the ineffable Name contained in the Tetragrammaton, Yod-Heh-Vav-Heh, neuter in itself, into the masculine or feminine state (see the paper on Elohim He-the-gods , attached) These things will become clearer another day, intuited from the Kabbalistic magic being practiced today.
This is because the residents here have no desire for light of any kind. As you gain experience in VTA you will meet with its inhabitants. They all look very much alike and are totally devoid of emotions and feelings. They have severed desires of every kind. They are detached from their surroundings and from themselves. They are embodiments of the masculine current and are totally lacking the feminine current. For this reason the masculine current is quite strong in VTA while the feminine current is too weak to even be noticed.
The physical and emotional stresses you feel at present are a result of the pull of the Abyss--your present poetry is indica- tive. Naturally you find no power in any spell, no comfort in any ritual, no hope in any action. You are cut off by your own oath. Nor can I or any other aid you at this time. There is only manhood, only will, only the vector of your own tendencies, developed through the aeons of the past. I do not say how long the state will last, or what the outcome may be.
It is recommended that you swear a magical oath to practice the following meditation (or one of your own like it) daily for a selected period of time. Be sure to record your daily results in your Magical Diary. This meditation is specifically for a male magician. A woman will need to make appropriate changes to convert the feminine current to a masculine one. This exercise should be practiced as a preparation for entering ZIP. Crossing the Abyss of ZAX will not of itself allow you to enter ZIP or ZID. NOTES TO STEP 6. During this step, do not concentrate on any specific ppart of your body. Imagine your body, and hers, to be equally empty of any content except that your body contains the masculine current and hers the feminine current. Because your bodies are subtle, not physical, they can actually be merged together.
Master Paracelsus states The stars from heaven do not form the human being. The human being comes from two principles The 'Ens Seminis' (the masculine sperm) and the 'Ens Virtutis' (the Intimate). Therefore, he has two natures One Corporeal and the other Spiritual and each one of them requires its digestion (womb and nutrition).
The general understanding of the Holy Spirit as found in the Gnostic tradition is that it is the power of the Lord of Wisdom, it is personified in the same way we may describe the power of a entity, however, it has no individuality per see. It is the Lord of Wisdom in action, akin to the Logos being the Mind of the Lord. At the same time however there is an important Old Testament tradition which sees the Holy Spirit as Wisdom (Sophia) and hence identifies it as feminine. To fully appreciate this we need to dig below the surface to gain a special understanding of the Godhead. The Father is gender-variant in the human sense but is obviously (Logos and Sophia), passive and active in nature. Hence, the Lord of Wisdom is seen as androgynous. While at the same time the Logos and Sophia are different facets of the Lord of Wisdom as active in the higher and lower worlds. The Logos is active and characterised as masculine beacause it functions as the the analysing mind, while the Holy Spirit...

Any one to whom this experience does not occur need not imagine that he is meditating. It shows merely that he is incapable of concentrating his mind in the very smallest degree. Perhaps a student may go for several days before discovering that he is not meditating. When he does, the obstinacy of the object will infuriate him and it is only now that his real troubles will begin, only now that Will comes really into play, only now that his manhood is tested. If it were not for the Will-development which he got in the conquest of Asana, he would probably give up. As it is, the mere physical agony which he underwent is the veriest trifle compared with the horrible tedium of Dharana. 28
Man to Man (adapt to this if this is your sexual preference), some Woman to Woman and some Male to Female. In rituals of the Sun and the Moon, two men may participate however one will take a Lunar side (feminine) and one Solar (masculine), the same with Woman to Woman workings. Do not hide your sexuality away, be what you are and let no one tell you it is wrong Thinking Force, the Djinn (Azazel Shaitan) of Fire, masculine strength, energy, the movement of the self through life. Known also as Shaitan Satan this is the Black Serpent or Kundalini. In its masculine opposing nature, it is known as Ahriman, the Imagination. Samael is the Black Dragon. In the circle, create two sigils, one masculine and feminine.
It is important to notice some other correspondences. The three vowel-consonants of the Hebrew alphabet, Aleph, Yod, 'Ayin, these three letters form the sacred name of God, I A 0. These three Atu, IX, 0, and XV, thus offer a threefold explanation of the male creative energy but this card especially represents the masculine energy at its most masculine. Saturn, the ruler, is Set, the ass-headed god of the Egyptian deserts he is the god of the south. The name refers to all gods containing these consonants, such as Shaitan, or Satan. (See Magick pp.336-7). Essential to the symbolism are the surroundings - barren places, especially high places. The cult of the mountain is an exact parallel. The Old Testament is full of attacks
Saturn, therefore, is masculine he is the old god, the god of fertility) the sun in the south but equally the Great Sea, the great Mother and the letter Tau upon the Tree of Life appears as an emana tion from the moon of Yesod, the foundation of the Tree and repre sentative of the reproductive process and of the equilibrium between change and stability, or rather their identification. The influence of the path descends upon the earth, Malkuth, the daughter. Here again appears the doctrine of setting the daughter upon the throne of the Mother . In the card itself there is consequently a glyph of the completion of the Great Work in its highest sense, exactly as the Atu of the Fool symbolizes its beginning. The Fool is the negative issuing into manifestation the Universe is that manifestation, its purpose accomplished, ready to return. The twenty cards that lie between these two exhibit the Great Work and its agents in various stages. The image of the Universe in this sense is...
It is extremely interesting to contrast with the above the formula of the elemental Gods deprived of the creative spirit. One 25 might suppose that as ALIM, is the masculine plural of the masculine noun AL, its formula would be more virile than that of ALHIM, which is the masculine plural of the feminine noun ALH. A moment's investigation is sufficient to dissipate the illusion. The word masculine has no meaning except in relation to some feminine correlative. No true Magical operation can be performed by the formula of ALIM. All the works of witchcraft are illusory and their apparent effects depend on the idea that it is possible to alter things by the mere rearrangement of them. One 26 must not rely upon the false analogy of the Xylenes to rebut this argument. It is quite true that geometrical isomers act in different manners towards the substance to which they are brought into relation. And it is of course necessary sometimes to rearrange the elements of a molecule before that...
The Sun is the center of our solar system, the giver of life and heat, and the Moon is (so far as our earth is concerned), the collector and reflector of its vitalizing rays. The solar ray attains its greatest intensity in midsummer* when the Sun is in Cancer and Leo, during June and July, and so Leo, the lion, being a masculine sign of a fiery nature is in essential agreement with the nature of the Sun and therefore helps to dignify and strengthen it.
The subject of my third lecture is Niyama. Niyama Hm The inadequacy of even the noblest attempts to translate these wretched Sanskrit words is now about to be delightfully demonstrated. The nearest I can get to the meaning of niyama is 'virtue' God help us all This means virtue in the original etymological sense of the word -- the quality of manhood that is, to all intents and purposes, the quality of godhead. But since we are translating yama 'control', we find that our two words have not at all the same relationship to each other that the words have in the original Sanskrit for the prefix 'ni' in Sanskrit gives the meaning of turning everything upside down and backwards forwards, -- as YOU would say, Hysteron Proteron -- at the same time producing the effect of transcendental sublimity. I find that I cannot even begin to think of a proper definition, although I know in my own mind perfectly well what the Hindus mean if one soaks oneself in Oriental thought for a sufficient number of...
His Angel shall lead him anon to the summit of the Order of the R. C. and make him ready to face the unspeakable terror of the Abyss which lies between Manhood and Godhead teach him to Know that agony, to Dare that destiny, to Will that catastrophe, 241 and to keep Silence for ever as he accomplishes the act of annihilation.
As the Lord of life and heat, the Sun, is always opposed by Saturn in the rulership of their signs, Leo and Aquarius, so also the cold and deathly Saturn opposes the Sun from its exaltation-sign Libra. Venus and Mars are the planets of attraction from the point of sex, and as all that is generated by sex is under the sway of death, Mars has thus a right to rule Scorpio, the eighth-house sign denoting death it is also properly exalted in the Saturnine sign Capricorn, and Saturn, the Lord of Death is justly ascribed exaltation-power in Libra, the cardinal masculine sign of Venus. Mercury is a planet of a variable nature it takes on the color and characteristics of any sign or planet with which it is configurated therefore it has no particular affinity with any of the other planets or signs ruled by the other planets, and hence must seek exaltation in its own signs. And as Gemini is masculine it is not so well in accord with Mercury as is the listless negative sign Virgo, hence that is...
This is the third and highest stage. Literally the name means Great Symbol. In this degree a partner is no longer needed. When you reach this stage you will realize that both the feminine and masculine currents are of equal intensity within yourself. This stage is sometimes called experienced unity. The Mahamudra stage is fully realized in the 4th Aethyr, PAZ, but can be practiced successfully after crossing the Abyss in the 10th Aethyr, ZAX. For details on Mahamudra and an excellent yoga to practice, read Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrines by W.Y. Evans-Wentz.
Representative of masculinity, of authority, elineation and circumcision. Also represents a circumcision of action through the weather. Anything to do with authority. It is also good for dealing with conflict, and for magically gathering allies who must be your equals, or nearly so . It can also uncover enemies. Cooper, Esoteric Rune Magic.
Adam and Eve integrate within the Monad and its Kabbalistic value is 10, which reminds us of the IO, in other words, of the vowels iiiiiii ooooooo. The very sacred union of the Eternal Masculine with the Eternal Feminine, the integration of the opposites within the Essential and Divine Monad.
The masculine nature of fire permits the Four of Wands to appear as a very p6sitive and clear-cut conception. The weakness in the element of water threatens its purity it is not quite strong enough to control itself properly so the Lord of Pleasure is a little un stable. Purity has somehow been lost in the process of satisfaction.
How the torches splutter in the storm, pressing warm kisses of gold on the gnarled and knotted trunks of the beech trees How the fumigation from musk and myrrh whirls up in an aromatic cloud from the glowing censer --- how for a time it greedily clings to the branches, and then is wafted to the stars Look --- as we invoke them, how they gather round us, these Spirit of Love and of Life, of Passion, of Strength, and of Abandon --- these sinews of the manhood of the World
ALSO we have learned in the Book of Concealed Mystery that all the judgments which arise from the Masculine are vehement in the commencement, and relax in the termination but that those which are found to arise from the Feminine are relax in commencement, and vehement in termination.

The bride of the Dragon and spiritual mother of Cain opens the portal through Hell in those who seek her. The aims of Adamu is to present the infernal garden of delights within and outside the arcana of self - love, being the essence of Trshna, being Thirst. The succubi or incubi arises from the depths of our own hell, this may be a partial combination of the Ahriman - like aspects of the self -masculine, always in motion - chaos inspired storms which allow the sorcerer to invoke change and becoming unto the Prince of Darkness.
The secret of the Tetragrammaton is in the meaning of its component letters. The Yud represents archetypal masculinity and the Heh (superior) represents archetypal femininity. The Vahv, which looks like an elongated Yud, represents physical masculinity while the second Heh, the Heh inferior, represents physical femininity. Thus the Tetragrammaton signifies that the ultimate secret of the Godhead is that the Divine is the union of all dualities (i.e., male and female) both physically and spiritually. The Divine is everything, and everything comes from and is of the Godhead. resenting the union of divine masculinity and femininity with physical masculinity and femininity by way of the Holy Spirit Biblically, any person who would be a savior or messiah to himself or herself must be able to unite Divinity with physicality and unite all opposites by way of the Holy Spirit Thus, any savior must be this five-lettered name, the Pentagrammaton. If you pronounce the Pentagrammaton in Hebrew, it...
Pitifully she pleaded that the cold rain of the night -- she was wet through -- had driven all Paris from the boulevard to the cafe and she added an excuse for her unattractiveness which should have sent her husband to his pistol for very shame had a spark of manhood, or a memory of his mother, been alive within him.
The subject of my third lecture is Niyama. Niyama H'm The inadequaOcy of even th noblest attempts to translate these wretched Sanskrit words is now about to be delightfully demonstrated. The nearest I can get to the meaning of Niyama is 'virtue' God help us all This means virtue in the original etymological sense of the word -- the quality of manhood that is, to all intents and purposes, the quality of godhead. But since we are translating Yama 'control,' we find that our two words have not at all the same relationship to each other that the words have in the original Sanskrit for the prefix'ni' in Sanskrit gives the meaning of turning everything upside down and backwards forwards, -- as *you* would say, Hysteron Proteron -- at the same time producing the effect of transcendental sublimity. I find that I cannot even begin to think of a proper the aspirant from the duties of manhood. Do what thou wilt shall be
The English reader to-day, like the lay Israelite of David's time, is not likely to discover the esoteric meaning. For the translators have carefully eliminated or emended the most open allusions to a cult which conflicted with the tenets of Christianity. For example, to quote Mrs. S. L. McGregor Mathers (i), they have smothered up every reference to the fact that the Deity is both masculine and feminine. They have translated a feminine plural by a masculine singular in the case of the word Elohim. They have, however, left an inadvertent admission of their knowledge that it was plural in Gen. i. 26 ' And Elohim said Let Us make man.' Again (verse 27), how could Adam be made in the image of the Elohim, male and female, unless the Elohim were male and female also The word Elohim is a plural formed from the feminine singular ALH, Eloh, by adding IM to the word. But inasmuch as IM is usually the termination of the masculine plural, and is here added to a feminine noun, it gives to the...
1st The Masculine Energy JHVH, or Jahveh, or Jahoh, the Divine Father 2nd The Feminine Energy THVTH, Thavath, or Tavath, the Divine Mother. In fact, the consonant-word HVH, part masculine, part feminine, is in itself a neuter form When one wishes to determine it exclusively in the feminine, one must do this in one of two ways Thavath is also called Tivathi and Taauth, which are only modifications of the same name. Thavath or Taouth, is the feminine principle corresponding to the masculine principle Houd of the Chaldean Triad,. The Chaldean Thavath is identical to the Phonecian Bahou, and the Hebraic Tohu-Bohu87. To determine the masculine equivalent of this neuter word of HVH, one puts an 'I' consonant in front, obtaining HIVH. This tetragram is hieroglyphically the same as the god of the Hebrews. It can have the following pronunciations
Ahrimanic - OF Ahriman, the core essence traits of Ahriman - Individual will, desire (controlled), passion to command (manifest reality), utilizing the darkness of the subconscious (bestial demonic), exhalting the rational, waking mind (the angelic or Luciferian aspect), primal sorcery and the predatory spirit of wolves, serpents, etc. In the sense of the Adversary, this relates to Az and Ahriman, the union of masculine and feminine. Dregvant Avestan Pahlavi - In historical Zoroastrian lore, a person embodied with Druj, the spirit of darkness. Druj is refered as both feminine and masculine, thus is an initiatory term relating to the foremost union of Ahriman and Az, the blackened matter and fiery darkness of his bride. A Dregvant is a Yatu or initiate of the Daeva-Yasna. Druj Avestan Pahlavi - Lie referring to demons, feminine and masculine. The later derived term is interestingly enough the old Persian Draug , meaning also Lie and is held connected to Serpent , Snake or Dragon (i.e....
A similar madness attacks even real men of science. Metchnikoff studied the diseases of the colon until he could see nothing else, and then calmly proposed to cut out every one's colon, pointing out that a vulture (who has no colon) is a very long-lived bird. As a matter of fact the longevity of the vulture is due to its twisted neck, and many thoughtful persons propose to experiment on Professor Metchnikoff.
Unfortunately, my child, creative magick, which is the thaumaturgic side of the business, depends on a peculiar excitation which objects to 'test conditions' very strongly. You might as well ask Cyril to prove his poetic gift, or even his manhood, before a set of 114 fools. He will produce you poems, and infants, and events, as the case may be but you have more or less to take his word for it that he did the acts responsible primarily for them. Another difficulty about true magick is that it is so perfectly a natural process that its phenomena never excite surprise except by their timeliness -- so that one has to record hundreds of experiments to set up a case which will even begin to exclude coincidence. For instance, I want a certain book. I use my book-producing talisman. The following day, a bookseller offers me the volume. One experiment proves nothing. My ability to do it every time is the proof. And I can't even do that under 'test conditions' for it is necessary that I should...
We have already explained, in previous chapters, that the Inner-Self, the Being, Atman, has Two Souls, one feminine and the other masculine. We have already explained that the Spiritual Soul, Buddhi, is feminine. We have already said, and we repeat, that the Human Soul, Superior Manas, is masculine. A circle with a traversed vertical line in hieratic symbolism, is the very sacred union of the Eternal Feminine with the Eternal Masculine the integration of the opposites in the ineffable and Divine, Essential Monad.
Liber HVHI explores the Qlippothic Spheres, Ritual Sorcery based on the ancient cults mentioned in the Avesta of Yatuvidah, daeva-yasna (demon-worshippers) persecuted by the Zoroastrians. The roots of the Adversary as the Masculine and Demonic Feminine are explored from Hebrew and Ancient Persian sources, to a living and potent Left-Hand-Path initiatory system. Beginning with an inversion of the Catholic Rite to instead practice exorcism , the inverted and created rite is aimed at Possession or liberating the shadow self into a viable, productive focus. The 22 cells of the Qlippoth along with the infernal spheres are presented as valuable aspects of strengthening consciousness and creating an attitude of winning and self-deification. LIBER HVHI will contrast with those looking to condemn left-hand-path writings, the revealed identity of the Luciferian is one who wishes to become something more, from the predatory spirituality of Ahriman and Az to the intense ritual practices of the...
To build up a Telesmatic Image, you can either use your magical imagination to construct it in the etheric or astral p lanes, or you can draw it on paper first, one part at a time. The Golden Dawn divided these images into four types, depending on the world (i.e., Atziluth, Briah, Yetzirah, or Assiah). In general, Kings, Seniors, and Governors should be considered archetypal and therefore, Telesmatic Figures cannot apply. Archangels and Kerubic Angels are creative and original. Telesmatic Figures only apply to these in a restricted sense. For example, they should be shadowy and barely discernible. The Greater and Lesser Angels of the Watchtowers, however, are formative. Telesmatic Figures apply quite well to these deities (as well as Demons). To build an image, use the information contained in Table IX. The sex of the figure depends on the predominance of the masculine or feminine letters in the name. Actually each letter partakes of both sexes, but for purposes of forming these...
The first Number is of two, because it is the first Multitude, it can be measured by no number besides unity alone, the common measure of all Numbers It is not compounded of Numbers, but of one unity only neither is it called a number uncompounded, but more properly not compounded The Number of three is called the first Number uncompounded But the Number of two is the first branch of unity, and the first procreation Hence it is called generation, and Juno, and an imaginable Corporation, the proof of the first motion, the first form of parity the number of the first equality, extremity, and distance betwixt, and therefore of peculiar equity, and the proper act thereof, because it consists of two equally poysed and it is called the Number of Science, and Memory, and of light, and the number of man, who is called another, and the lesser World it is also called the number of charity, and mutuall love, of marriage, and society, as it is said by the Lord, Two shall be one flesh. And Solomon...
I paragraph 1 the real chastity of Percivale or Parsifal, a chastity which did not prevent his dipping the point of the sacred lance into the Holy Grail, is distinguished from its misinterpretation by modern crapulence. The priests of the gods were carefully chosen, and carefully trained to fulfill the sacrament of fatherhood the shame of sex consists in the usurpation of its function by the unworthy. Sex is a sacrament. The word virtus means the quality of manhood . Modern virtue is the negation of all such qualities.
