Article reprint: An Overview of the Mathematics and Astrology of the Enochian System
I recently had the pleasure of having an article on Enochian published in Telicom, the official journal of the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry (www.thethousand.com; see copyright notice at bottom). The editor-in-chief was very helpful and I’m very grateful for her and her team’s help in making the manuscript so much better. The article is a brief of an introduction to the topic of Enochian as well as some astrological and mathematical findings that the angels pointed me toward. I have attached a copy of the reprint below:

Zodiacal Table and Lamen: Effects
I wanted to briefly touch on the zodiacal tools (lamen and table) effects in the event that others have been inspired to use it. For this, I am drawing both from my first time calling the zodiacal kings forth in April, the first time that I scried LIL with both the Zodiacal Lamen and Zodiacal Holy Table, and finally some clarifying questions to the zodiacal kings today. I’ll note that for both times I called on the Zodiacal kings, it was the king associated with my rising sign (ascendant) who appeared first. I recommend calling forth all 12 kings and seeking reconciliation towards their energies. I have found all of their prophetic sayings to be accurate.
The main quote that I received during my scrying LIL to consider the zodiacal energies called forth to be like nuclear fusion: “Things are brought together and the energy therein is contained through the massiveness of the process.” I strongly encourage a general review of nuclear fusion in order for the rest of this post to be clear.
First and foremost, my preliminary view is that zodiacal workings are is both potent and subtle, so be prepared for unexpected effects. Beyond this, the zodiacal forces that have arisen have been contra-antiscia to those in my natal chart, an astrological aspect which I have previously noted on the Holy Table of Practice transmitted to Dee & Kelley. Contra-antiscia signifies energies which are balanced across the equinox line (or plane) of 0 degrees Aries to 0 degrees Libra. Equinoxes are literal moments of balance: both the northern and southern hemispheres have days and nights of equal length (Libra, of course, means “scales” in Latin). Therefore, bringing in energies contra-antiscia to one’s own suggests attempting to balance one’s own astrological energies with a complement, with the overall result being a greater alignment with the zodiacal influences when they are at their most balanced.
Note that nuclear fusion is also a balance of massive energies–the energy of plasma as well as the energy needed to contain such plasma (the latter coming in the form of massive gravity or, on Earth, very strong artificial magnetic fields). This is in line with the phrase “massiveness of the process” in that the 360 degrees of the zodiac (if thought of as spaces looking like wedges of an orange expanded out in all directions) represent the whole of the universe, or perhaps the Divine itself. My reflection on this is to prepare oneself for influences to which one has previously been blinded, but which have an underlying recognizability when they arise in one’s life.
Today, the angels in particular mentioned that there are also antiscia elements of the zodiacal energies which they rarely stir up, specifically, to quote my friend CodyP, they volatize the fixed and fix the volatile. At times they first do one and then the other, returning the individual to their original level of dynamism. Here, they used the analogy of a caterpillar, which becomes fixed in its chrysalis form, and then volatile (or more dynamic) as a butterfly. It is rare for someone to be the focus of only this antiscia energy, they said, and would be used for someone who is either fossilized or flailing. The effect of the antiscia would be like a slingshot. Here they gave a different analogy of an asteroid making a parabola around the sun, moving from kinetic energy to potential and then back to kinetic energy again. The effects of the antiscia energy would be to not necessarily change their energetic nature but to change the course of that energy for the best possible outcome.
I strongly suspect that the magician working with these zodiacal energies would do little but open the door to the Divine, and let His mysterious ways issue forth.
On the Zodiacal Kings
(Re-posted from Facebook):
I did an analysis of the assignments of the zodiacal kings to the 30 Aethyrs (note that this includes duplication of zodiacal kings within an Aethyr) 5 (Aries), 7 (Taurus), 7 (Gemini), 8 (Cancer), 7 (Leo), 5 (Virgo), 8 (Libra), 4 (Scorpio), 8 (Sagittarius), 10 (Capricorn), 7 (Aquarius), 15 (Pisces).
Previously I discovered a contra-antiscia based exaltation scheme to the ensign layout, so I did an analysis which includes exaltation. The exaltation of the planets is another form of essential dignity in astrology; the sun has domicile rulership in Leo, and is exalted in Aries; the moon rules Cancer and is exalted in Taurus, etc.
Including exaltation, then the zodiacal kings’ distribution accounts for 144, or 12^2, essential dignity placements. 144 is, of course, the reverse of 441, an important number in Enochian, which itself is the square of 21, the reverse of 12. “The last shall be first, and the first, last…”
Looking at the elemental placements, then the water-sign zodiacal kings appear 27 times, or 3^3, and the remaining 3 elements’ (earth, wind, and fire—oops, I mean earth, air, and fire ) appear 64 times, or 4^3; note that multiplying their cube roots has a product of 12, as seen above, and of course adding reflects the septenary basis of Enochian.
There are also some interesting combinations of dignity of planets with this; Venus and Mars, the respective nocturnal sect benefic and malefic, together have exaltation 49 times, or 7^2. The moon and Saturn, which rule the lowest and highest sephiroth (Yesod & Binah) of the seven classical planets, together have essential dignity 40 times, which parallels the 40 cells of the outer ring of the SDA, and the 40 lines of words on Leaf 1b in Liber Loagaeth.
The sun and Mercury, which rule Tiphareth & Hod, are linked by the common Archangels of Michael and Raphael, who switch rulership in these sephiroth; together, these account for 24 signs of exaltation and rulership. This parallels the 24 seniors and 24 hours of the day.
This leaves Jupiter, whose King Bynepor is singled out for exceptional praise, whose kings in signs of its domicile or exaltation appear 31 times. 31, of course, is the Kabbalistic number of El, and appears as one of the named numbers in Enochian as GA.
