Reflections on Completing the Book of Silvered Leaves

I have completed the Book of Silvered Leaves. Let me start by discussing the book’s general structure as it was transmitted to me:

  • The first 19 leaves had images on both sides, and at least one of the sides of each leaf incorporated one of the 21 letters of the Enochian alphabet into the image (for two leaves, Enochian letters were incorporated into each side’s image; the letter pairs for these were Pa/Gisg (the first and last letters of the Enochian alphabet) and Ger/Pal (the least-used Enochian letters). It should be noted that one of the images that arose was what I was told was the seal of the angel Mapsama, the angel who directed Dee & Kelley to create the book.
  • Nine leaves with moon phases:
    The next two leaves consisted of 49-word Enochian-language messages, while the following seven leaves included 49-word Enochian-language messages, as well as moon phase symbols (2 leaves with full moons, 1.5 leaves waxing crescent, 3.5 waning crescent). This suggested to me that the previous two leaves represented new moons.
  • The next 12 leaves each had one of the glyphs for the signs of the zodiac on both sides, and also had 49-word Enochian-language messages. At times these included the name of some of the zodiacal kings, and all 12 of the watchtower’s names of God were used, often with an IA- (“God”) prefix.
  • The next seven leaves each had an astrological symbol for the seven classical astrological planets (in order) on each side, each with shorter, seven-word Enochian-language messages (which were to be on a single line).
  • The final, 48th leaf was the astrological glyph for Earth. As with the 49th leaf of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (commonly, but not quite properly, known as Liber Loagaeth), this leaf was to have three 3×7 tables on the front, and two of the same on the back, each cell with one letter.

As far as how I wrote it, sometimes I would see the outline of a shape or letter in the silver borne by the page, sometimes I would hear what I was to write (in Enochian, or in English to be looked up in Enochian).

So we have some parallels between the Book of Silvered Leaves and Amzes Naghezes Hardeh/Liber Loagaeth. While the former has a distinctly lunar quality (indeed, it happens that the cover I bought to bind the book was very dark and reminiscent of the night sky), the latter is quite solar (to be bound in blue silk, with letters of gold, with Bornogo, the prince of the sun, appearing prominently in Leaf 9–the only leaf with numbers in addition to letters).

Now on to the effects. My friend Cody P. mentioned that his view of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth) that it created, so to speak, the rainbow body on the astral, from which a true rainbow body could ultimately be realized (this is a recollected conversation, not verbatim). There was certainly a lot of symbolism and coming to terms with a lot of my being during my reconstructed gebofal ritual. Although he didn’t say so, it’s like the world of Briah, and probably also Atziluth (and even Adam Qadmon), manifesting into Yetzirah. Note that my making a perfected copy of this book was probably heavily assisted by having previously scried the Aethyrs in this interpretation.

As I was told towards the end of constructing the Book of Silvered Leaves, I scried the word “PRONOA,” a word (meaning roughly alchemical love) which I had received during my initial trip through the Aethyrs. When I did so, I had an extremely powerful vision, almost as if all components of reality had their own Aethyric-style vision, and all of them were overlaid with each other simultaneously (like the many sound tracks at the end of the Beatles’ Revolution Number 9–except visual). This was the most intense vision I’d had, and I was guided to relax into the love. Doing so, I saw myself on a still, spherical ocean. I was told that I was to scry this word once more after the book had been completed, and afterward would receive the title of the book as well as realize the rainbow body–Yetzirah manifesting into Assiah.

The title of the book was PRONOA PIBLIAR CAOSGO, or roughly “Alchemical Love’s Places of Comfort of the Earth.” I wrote this on the silver which I had already affixed to the front (an extra silver leaf from the package I bought). More importantly, a nascent rainbow body has appeared, right now only appearing to me astrally, but something I can work with at will.

Now for ultimate reflections on this book. I do not believe that everyone will receive the same book if they go through this process (especially given that many of the messages seem quite personalized). However, I believe that making this book, as creating a perfected copy of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth), is important to the magician. It is certainly the easier of the two books to make! The level of trance I would say I had–with the exception of the final ritual of scrying the word PRONOA–was not as heavy as, for example, almost all of the reconstructed gebofal ritual. So in the sense of a doable ritual, I would almost encourage people to make this book first, since it was to be created just as much as Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth), but is far less effort. It may even be wiser for those born at night to make the Book of Silvered Leaves first, for in Hellenistic astrology, the main luminary for such people is the moon, not the sun. Regardless, the moon, being the closest astrological planet to the earth, is considered most “earth-like,” and can sort of be considered a gateway to the higher realms.

I did a brief review of the chart for the absolute end of the ritual, and found the following septile aspects (something I noticed at the end of the gebofal ritual; 3-degree orb (except for quincunx/triseptile)):

  • Moon triseptile Mercury
  • Moon septile Mars
  • Neptune septile MC
  • Neptune septile Uranus
  • Neptune septile Rahu/North Node.
  • Mars triseptile Mercury
  • Chiron septile Saturn
  • Ascendant triseptile Pluto

There were also several quintiles:

  • Moon biquintile Neptune
  • Mercury quintile Neptune
  • Chiron quintile Pluto
  • Sun biquintile North Node
  • Sun biquintile Uranus
  • Sun biquintile Midheaven

Thanks for reading!

Magical Astrological Elections, 2022

We’re in the fourth quarter of 2021, so it’s probably a good time to give some magical elections. Days are for Texas in the United States, so your timing may vary.

January 16, 2022: Fomalhaut election. The goal here is to put Jupiter on the ascendant for a Fomalhaut election to serve your reputation. Jupiter rules the 10th house, but you must also banish Mars (also in the 10th house) and probably also Saturn (in its joy in the 12th), unless their configuration is especially favorable in your chart. Consider also banishing the sun, which is in a very tight conjunction with Pluto in the 11th. Use tin as your main magica materia and any other stones associated with Jupiter and/or Pisces in your correspondence. Enochian Zodiacal King is Arfaolg, the king is Bynepor, and the prince is Butmono (ideally these would be spelled in Enochian from right to left). Archangel for Fomalhaut is Gabriel (Gabriel’s power is strengthened with the moon in Cancer in this election; spell the name in Hebrew if you’re able, also right-to-left). Refer to Agrippa for the sign of Jupiter which can be added. Christopher Warnock has additional information for Pisces in his Fixed Star, Sign, and Constellation Magic book.

March 5, 2022: Jupiter domicile cazimi election. In my location, I have Jupiter and the sun on the midheaven. Venus is applying to a conjunction with Mars at the anaretic degree of Capricorn in the 8th house. The Pisces and Jupiter angels and sign from the previous election are applicable.

April 27, 2022. Venus/Jupiter conjunction at the exaltation degree. I was super bummed that I didn’t get to do the exact conjunction date, but that falls on an eclipse. Instead, we’ll use the date from three days before, with the moon part of a stellium conjunct the Ascendant. You’ll want to have the moon and Venus be just above the horizon. Neptune is conjunct this, so if you want to banish it, use the Greater Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram, using the forms for Saturn but and substituting the planetary glyph of Neptune for Saturn. Regardless, you may also want to banish Mars, since it’s in the first house (though it’s not in the worst position since this is a night chart and it is above the horizon). The Pisces and Jupiter angels and sign from the previous election are, once again, applicable. The Enochian Venusian king and prince are Baligon and Bagenol. Either tin or copper will do.

October 16, 2022. Spica election. Sun and Venus are conjunct the fixed star this day, and can be put on the midheaven in my location. The Enochian Venusian king and prince names from before are applicable, and the Enochian king and prince of the sun are Bobogel and Bornogo. No real need to banish for this election, in my opinion. Magica materia is copper (Venus).

October 22, 2022. Venus domicile cazimi. Sun and Venus share the anaretic degree, making this an especially powerful Libra election. In my location, they do so in the 1st house, but this could be an equally powerful 7th or 10th house election, depending on your location. They also are separating from a square from Pluto, but this is about 3 degrees away. Every major planet except the moon has either essential dignity or sign-based reception in this election, so I don’t see a need to banish here.

Gebofal, Day 41

Sunrise: Call/Key 9, (because the true first key “was not to be spoken,” most practitioners refer to this as call 8). Call to King Baligon. Call to Godnames “MOR,” “DIAL,” “HCTGA.”

King Baligon appears in an earthen form, but now appears as a forest or field king within nature. He notes the obvious: Venus is now in Taurus, which is in alignment with today as Venus’ of the week, as well as with the Earth tablet under my feet (of course, King Baligon’s seal rests upon that, and he is associated with Venus). He says he will speak briefly, but I reply that he of course may speak at whatever length he chooses.

King Baligon indicates via placing an thin earthen sphere about me, that I have some of these powers already within me. He is going to magnify it and bring it into its fullness, he says. He shows me the obvious act of digging into earth. Yesterday, he says, I was given the image of water washing off the dirt. This time he points downward that humans have come to learn that precious stones come from the power of Earth, whether that be compression (in the case of diamonds) or magma cooling. He also points to gold and says that it’s a rarity, left here by stars many years ago. Everything that was said yesterday about that golden diamond reflecting something inward, to the human mind, is true. There’s beauty therein.

Now he points to gnomes, and we think of them as related to elemental earth, and he bids me watch what they do. Now I see an image of a proper mine, and I see one, among many, who is swinging a pickaxe into a wall of a mine. The idea here is that eventually if you go through with the pickaxe and make your way through all of this dirt, eventually you will reach what you’re looking for.

Then King Baligon points to several things about a proper mine. First, care is taken such that the earth above does not crush the miners: supports and such. This is a power associated with mining and gold and precious stones. Then, the ability to recognize a glint of ore, or to feel it by indirect contact, or even to have a sixth sense as to where it is: this would also be a power associated with gold and precious stones.

Obviously, we want the thing to be beautiful, so the hammering of the gold into shape, the planning of the shape, the measuring of a finger for, say, a gold diamond ring to fit about it: all of these things are related to the actual shape of the final object itself, and belong to the powers of Gold and Precious Stones as they relate to elemental earth. As an aside, he adds that the knowledge of metals, which come from Prince Bornogo, can be combined in this manner. Continuing, he says that having a beautiful shape of the golden jewelry in mind, this also belongs to this earth aspect of the power of Gold and Precious Stones. Any time that there needs to be a certain arrangement that the stones would need to be fixed upon, that is pleasing to the eye: that sense of pleasantness and elegance, of things looking right. To some degree a conceptual degree of elegance could come with Venus in Gemini or Venus in Aries (for the latter has a good sense of conceptual elegance: what would make a perfectly beautiful extent of where one element ends and where another begins–which is why they make very good fighters!). He says that in particular, the pleasant arrangement that earthiness brings here is like a beautiful arrangement for a feast, which looks good before anyone sits down (whereas if considering where and how people sat mattered, such would belong more to Venus in Libra).

As far as transportation is concerned, earth brings consideration of weight and lading: understanding just how much can be gotten away with in terms of weight when it comes to travel, or what a reasonable or practical amount that one could or should be laden with in order to travel from one point to another. Understanding this very well in terms of precision would be related to Virgo: what ought to be shed and kept and the meticulous planning thereby. Having a general sense of whether the trip would even be worth it: such would be Taurus–but he says that we’ll get into each sign at the noon scrying: “It seems to work very well for you.”

King Baligon says to continue to try to find the correct combination of servient angels to match the numbers in the remaining calls. “It’s worthwhile and it’s pleasing unto the Lord that this work is done.”

I ask whether King Baligon has anything further in his generosity and mercy; “No,” he replies, “this is it. Thanks be unto God.”

Thus ends the vision.

Noon: Similar procedure. This is the famous “Pagesgem” half-leaf, 9a:

Picture of Leaf 9A of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh. King Bornogo notes that this is the only leaf with a circle in the middle, and with numbers upon it; it also has the name “Bornogo” central and in appearing in four directions (other kings or princes may appear within Liber Loagaeth, but not to my knowledge, and certainly none central to it).

The vision starts with a subtle flash of light appearing in the upper-right of my field of vision. Nothing further happens, so I relax, and King Baligon bids me do so further. I note aloud that I would seem to indirectly be calling upon Prince Bornogo by having my left hand upon this leaf. “Here be Michael,” says King Baligon, a clear reference to Michael as the archangel of the sun, “but if you had the entire one, of course, Raphael.” This confirms Raphael as the archangel of Tiphareth, and Michael as the archangel of its planetary ruler. Yet as to what “the entire one” refers, I do not know.

I continue to relax into the vision. King Baligon says that we will just briefly touch on the powers that we haven’t touched on already. Getting back to the vision of the mine: the structure of what it takes to have a mining operation in place, or to discover gold or precious stones (time, safety, discipline, things like that)–the proper structure of building of that up: such, I’m told, belongs to Capricorn.

“We’ve already gone over Taurus a little bit, mainly [in the power] to distinguish what is beauty, and what actually has value, sometimes both of those together, sometimes one and not the other,” King Baligon says, “such is Taurus.” Being able to make a plan as to how to arrange the points and shapes–the overall sense of beauty is Taurus, but the overall plan to make the shapes and to distinguish one part from another, and to purify generally the gold and precious stones–melting points in the case of gold, for example–these are Virgo.

Now I’m getting the sense that Prince Bornogo wishes to arrive and assist with King Baligon, and I’m happy with that. King Baligon says this is possible only by the natural correspondence between Venus (during the hour of which he is to be called), as well as the sympathy between King Baligon and King Carmara (and their similar seals), the latter of whom with his prince, Hagonel, can switch the rules of Heptarchical manifestation around slightly.

I’m getting this sense of the sense of self, which is reflected in gold; Prince Bornogo says that the particular power of gold to reflect the individual is quite important. There is something about that inner empty mind that is seen, and that being able to distinguish one (possibly meaning true empty mind) from the next (a false sense of empty mind)–here we’re speaking metaphorically, in the sense of gold being able to reflect something that silver and other metals, in some ways, seems to corrupt slightly. The property that gold has is that it is such a rare element (relative to, say, iron), which comes from supernovae of eons past, (though perhaps not as rare as other metals), and which doesn’t tend toward radioactive decay. There’s something about how it reflects the heart of the sun, which is to be taken into account (when considering the Powers of Gold), and so the seeking of pure gold from alchemical (metaphorical) point of view, vs. the physical point of view, is not something to be discounted, because there is something very true and unique to an individual. There is the True Will, which one can begin to get a sense of by entering into Tiphareth, which one could potentially get at by a true sense of self, but it’s a very delicate process, Prince Bornogo says: that’s why it’s at the very heart of the sun.

“As far as precious stones,” King Baligon asks, “why are diamonds the best? It is the most valuable of all of the precious stones on account of the density and fixity of the points in relation to each other, the sheer packing of carbon atoms so closely and strongly together. There’s something poetic about that substance [carbon] which makes life possible, when it is given to itself, creates something that life itself seems attracted to.” Combined that with the heart of oneself, and the true focus of oneself (i.e., metaphorical gold), this is all very important. I ask if there’s anything additional as far as the astrological assignments go. I’m told quickly that Taurus understand the value, Capricorn the importance of focusing oneself over the long haul, so gold retains its value, and Capricorn is very much aware of that. Virgo energy, Prince Bornogo tells me, is especially good at distinguishing one thing from another, one stone from another: it has that power, and will seek the means to do so. Virgo also seems to have within it, especially if Mercury be there, this capacity to get at the heart of the sun, especially now that Regulus is there, he hastens to add. It has within it this means, merely by reflecting on the self, to begin to draw up the true sense of oneself.

Now I get some energy coming up off of the leaf. The royal angels say that this leaf is special, and represents the beginning of the final nine days, “in which the forty and the nine will be made clear unto you, much of which you have already expressed and discovered, but much more awaits.” I get the sense, and perhaps this is coming early–perhaps Prince Bornogo will have more to say in the evening, but I feel like all of the remaining (elemental earth) powers of gold and precious stones are being granted unto me early. Prince Bornogo nods, and once again I feel–a bit weighty, but not too bad–as all of these powers are being embedded within my subtle body system. Both Prince Bornogo and King Baligon are saying yes, this is a building process: “You have indeed lain out an excellent model, and the clarity of the trinity will be made clear unto you. Suffice it to say, it’s a bit of ‘the thing, its opposite, and the mediator. Much as God the Father, and Jesus Christ (who is of the earthly realm, and yet still Divine), so, too, is the Holy Spirit a mediator between the Two, and is mediator between the Father and anyone who has attained Christ Consciousness.”

I feel this elaborate and ornate Christian cross, but now it seems to be equal-armed cross, made of gold. At the ends I’m seeing all of these discs upon discs, making their way out from the ends of the cross. It’s gorgeous. They show it wrap about me, now, becoming two rings of a sphere or orb along the xy– and yz– planes, and now a third comes about me along the xz– plane. It is like unto a monarch’s orb, and it is rotating with jewels encrusted within it. It is like unto the Ophanim, except that the jewels are as unto eyes, or the eyes are as unto jewels, or somewhere in between. With all of this, much can be seen, and much can also be reflected back. It’s beautiful, whirling around now, taking on this energy. It is flaming a bit, but it is embedding itself within the throne of the Most High, which I see rolling around (note the power of transportation implicit in this image!). At first I see a figure on the throne who looks like me, but now it is empty, save for a point hovering in the very center. It is is a large throne, at first seeming 20 feet high, but now more like 200 feet high. The dimensionality is changing rapidly.

I ask, “What is there for me to hear, if you all, in your mercies, have something further to say, or to show?” At this, the throne splits vertically in two, and it’s like I come into the split, but then it unites into one again, and I become embedded within the throne. “This is the process now,” I’m told. “Tomorrow you will have the fullness of the powers of gold and precious stones, but the true meaning of them will be revealed unto you, and it is a meaning which shall stand this test of time: the reconciliation of Tiphareth, of Binah, and, yea, of Kether, in its fullness, and of Chokmah, naturally.” (Note: this could be a pulling in or reconciliation of Adam Qadmon with the Tree of Life, or it could be additional work done on the Tree of Life before I can proceed further into the realm of Adam Qadmon.)

I feel my subtle body system being tuned up again: it’s like I’m being lifted up. My crown chakra is sort of opening up, and I see it opening up like unto a leaf, or a blossom, but it’s like the angels are telling me, “Reach the tip of the leaf, reach the tip of the leaf!”

Thus ends the vision: thanks be to God.

Sunset: Similar procedure, but neglected to call on the god names of “MOR,” “DIAL,” and “HCTGA” until after the vision, during the vision, a great deal of distracting noise.

I feel a great deal of energy coming up off the leaf. King Baligon appears, and there is a great deal of energy coming up off of the leaf. Prince Bornogo is present, but does not come to the fore. King Baligon bids me relax, and speaks to the Excel solver which I have running, and suggests adding the duplicate numbers of servient angels back in (for so far, no solution has emerged).

He bids me relax again, and a third time. I try to do so. Now I see lightning come down about me, and there’s this earthen sphere about me (or several rings about a common polarity), which is also part lightning. It’s like this energized earth, or Uranian earth. It is all about me, and it is taking me throughout time, and I’m getting the sense from Prince Bornogo that this sphere is metals which are of an earthen nature, “For, yea, they tend to be found in the earth, are they not?”

“Yes,” I agree. It’s like I’m seeing the heavens themselves rip open once again, and I see an eye look through the tear at me (for the sky itself is its eyelid), and the pupil of this eye is the source of this lightning descending all about me in a nearly straight line. It’s like I’m hovering within some kind of electrical spherical cage, and the energy about me now seems to close in, and it’s permeating about my entire system, and, yes! It feels like my entire subtle body system is changing, and my hands are being magnetized. It feels like this is merely the first step, and the angels say, “Yes, for such energy shall come down upon thee in the full might of the Lord, or nearest so much as you can handle.”

I’m totally confused (“and that’s okay,” I remark). So I’m looking about me for any sort of clue right now, but it’s just this energetic, energetic, energetic, energetic…and I’m trying my best to maintain this lovingkindness all about me, and this causes the cage of rings about the pole to open before me, and I am allowed to rest in a bed. Yet this bed seems to have a life of its own! It seems to be taking me to and fro, and it seems like there’s no end to where I’m going, and there is a lot of light about me. Eventually I hear the word “Stop.”

The angels say, “Examine your heart, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: continue to examine it, day in and day out. Allow the lovingkindness within you to pour out, a hundredfold, a thousandfold, ten-thousandfold from where you have it now, and, yea, even more, so it will be pleasing unto the Most High.”

Thus ends the vision!

Gebofal, Day 36

Sunrise: Call/Key 14, (most practitioners refer to this as call 13, because it is the 13th spoken call, where as the true first call was “not to be spoken”). In order, calls to: King Bobogel, Prince Bornogo, King Baligon, King Carmara, and Prince Hagonel (the last two I decided to add at the last minute, since multiple royals were involved). A lot of energy was present. Note: Whenever it seems that King Carmara is speaking as his King Baligon form, I indicate so in brackets within the quote. Note that I am working with the Water Tablet, so this is a

The vision begins with King Carmara adjusting the method I will use for these final days of gebofal for days in which multiple kings should be called. He directs that instead of calling on King Bornogo first (the rationale being that it be his day and hour, i.e., those of the sun), instead I should call King Carmara (AKA Marmara–the first “M” is silent), then Prince Hagonel, then the king of the day, then the prince of the day and finally any other remaining kings). The timing matters less at noon and at sundown, since the timing must of necessity be different, but calling according to the normal timing of the king and prince of the day couldn’t hurt, but, King Carmara acknowledges, is difficult. In other words, there isn’t a need to follow this strict timing, because King Carmara is high king and can be called at any day and time, and, he says, he can bring about the inclusion king or prince to be involved.

There’s a lot of energy coming up off of the leaf now. King Carmara uses his right as high king to speak for Kings Baligon and Bobogel (the latter two bow, as do the two princes). “Let us speak about the Mechanical Arts with respect to water. You have already had in your mind the idea of a rudder or of a propeller. These are indeed Mechanical Arts of Water. Any seafaring enterprise: I [as Baligon] am included in the Mechanical Arts thereof. This would include Navigation.” Once again, we’re seeing a crossover between the elemental forces of electromagnetism (fire) in water (seafaring): “It depends on the purposes thereof,” he clarifies. “The confusion you had yesterday was, ‘What is the purpose of the Mechanical Art of Air, and how does is that involving electromagnetism[, which is of the nature of fire]?’ Well, it was the balancing” –(Libra)–“or binary”–(Gemini)–“nature of the circuits. To some degree you’re going to have that, upon any ship. Note: as humanity has advanced, many of these different kinds of Mechanical Arts become as one. So, any Mechanical Art involving a ship, I am involved with.

“Also consider the Mechanical Art of the chemicals which go into biology, for example. Any kind of chemical reaction which must needs be done in a water solution: there I[, as Baligon,] be,” King Carmara elaborates.

“Finally,” he concludes, “consider also now the powers of Transformation associated with Water. O, so much Water can transform! It can dissolve, as we have already noted, and it can also cause great floodings, great hurricanes: things of this nature. So that is how it is found in nature: how might it be found in humanity?

“It depends on the nature,” King Carmara explains, “and we won’t divert you to discussion of this with respect to the astrological signs just yet: this we will do this afternoon.” Here I must pause to allow the transmission to come through clearly. “Water can transform crops that humanity works upon, so irrigation: that is the [transformative] power of water. Water as it relates to food, to crops, to [avoiding undesirable] flooding” are related to the Transformative power water, he continues. “But the main thing is ecosystems, biology. ‘Water is life,’ is the phrase. We do not say, ‘Fire is life.'”

King Carmara continues: “Drinks and transformations thereof, and IV fluids.” He bids me note much medical transformation related to water. That which is related to medicine and to the blood: “Blood has its own unique significance to Spirit, but regardless, most of it is water, and lymph [is also]. So all of these things can be transformed best by calling upon the tablets. Frankly,” he advises, “it’s probably best that you call upon all of the angels [of all four elements, which are associated with a given power,] as you have done in the past, and just request help.”

“Let’s talk about Venus in exaltation,” King Carmara transitions. “It is good that you called upon me so that I could bring forth this power. Venus in exaltation in Pisces: we have the fish, the transporting of the fish, the ability of the water to go any which-way: the grand freedom of this. It is pleasant enough to not do that much! It can be quite lazy, can’t it? Or it feels liberating to be in that flow state. It feels very pleasant to be in that state. Hence why so much has been written about it, and it can also be empowering, so one can begin to bring in that Jupiterian influence.

“So both of these things happen at once: water, flow, knowing where to go, and to do it all much more quickly [and easily] than you would realize,” he concludes. “This is Venus in its exaltation. So,” he remarks, “it was a little difficult for you to get here, but it is good that you did, because now you yourself are even feeling the pleasantness of this in your body”–he’s correct, and it feels good to even type this up–“and your mind is now at ease. It is good that you continue to work at [perfecting the method]: this is the nature of Jupiter at the final degrees of Aquarius, so do not feel too bad. You may even look up the term and decan if you wish.” I do so: it is the term of Saturn and the Decan of the moon, which is near the end of Capricorn. “All in all, good job,” he encourages me. “Continue to work with this same format: again, do not worry so much about the timing now that I have invoked. You see that there will be no need to be concerned with it, although you may if you wish. Very good, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth.”

Thus ends the vision.

Noon: Similar procedure: I neglected to do this in the morning, so this time I added seven calls to the godnames of OIP, TEAA, and PDOCE.

King Carmara once again chooses to speak for the remaining princes and kings. “Let us now consider water as a mechanical art, when it comes to Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio.

“It’s going to be easiest with Scorpio, so let’s begin there. In addition to all of the other matters at hand, mechanical arts would be all manners of plumbing, pumps: anything having to do with the pumping of water, but to some degree this also applies to other liquids, which are the same category, in terms of melting and boiling point and similar qualia of water. Also, [as with a previous vision], diagnosis without seeing the matter: this is something of a fixed sign ability, but for Scorpio the difference is the diagnosis of something especially hidden, that is dangerous to be apprehended without special equipment (or perhaps even impossible).” He specifically references exploring a site like the Fukushima nuclear power plant, going into the water of the wrecked plant, but even without the water, the dangerous task of doing so. The Mechanical Art would going in or indirectly observing long enough such that information can be gleaned and worked upon: such information would be impossible to directly apprehend. Yet Scorpio is very good at understanding pressure and many hidden things. “Delving,” he adds, and “many underwater things would be Scorpionic. Irrigation, which was previously mentioned, because it involves plumbing-like action, is more Scorpionic, but has some Piscean aspects as well. Those would be the Mechanical Arts related to Scorpio in particular.”

He wishes to move on to Pisces. I concentrate to improve the quality of King Carmara’s transmission. “Consider the Mechanical Arts related to Pisces: this would be like the Mechanical Art of understanding the tides [and currents], and all oceanic ecosystems fall under Pisces,” he explains. “All of the water signs to some degree, but specifically Pisces.” I ask if he has anything else, and he says, “Yes: medical equipment–if it’s a puncture, such relates to Scorpio, so an IV drip into would belong to that sign. But if it’s trying to figure out what’s already happening to the flow of somebody, even heart surgery “–and here I see an open heart undergoing such–“the heart itself would be more like unto the Pisces. Again we’re getting away from some of these typical associations: heart center is Leo. Heart in terms of an organ acting to pump the water-like substance of blood, and the Mechanical Arts related to that: that is Pisces. If it were more of a surgery related to perhaps a valve (or the veins and arteries), such would be more Scorpionic. But other kinds of surgeries to remove some kind of blockage–there’s a bit of overlap.” I pause as I wait for the transmission to continue clearly. He continues, “You already have a large one with the ecosystem, but the problem is that your view isn’t as big.” Now I see a dolphin: “Yes,” he says, “sonar would be a good example of a Piscean technology, despite the dolphin being an aquatic mammal and not a fish.

“When it comes to Cancer,” King Carmara transitions, “here we have all sorts of Mechanical Arts related to shells, which are designed, indeed, to protect what’s inside. So airbags, despite their also having an Aquarian element due to the compressed air, you also have Cancer in them. More generally, the metal cage of an automobile, helmets, or any kind of armoring: that is the mechanical art related to Cancer. Again, it seems bizarre [for these to not be of elemental earth,] but these are not structure designed to hold something up. Instead, this is a shell designed to protect the watery lifeform inside.

“Getting to the powers of Transformation: you’re tempted to start with Cancer,” he notes, “but let’s start with Scorpio. Is there any power of Transformation that is not related to Scorpio?” he jokes. Speaking seriously now, he says that Scorpionic powers of Transformation are “Generally being more and more able to take in information and to find deeper and deeper layers: becoming interested in a mystery, all of these sorts of things, and seeing it through [to resolution] after layer and layer is unpeeled to its end to its final conclusion. Such is Scorpio, the transformative power of Scorpio.

“When it comes to the Transformative power of Pisces, here we have an ability to grow: once again, to see all sides of an issue. The circling: circumambulation is a perfect example of this: knowing the circumference as well as the center. This was a lot of work within you,” King Carmara observes, “and yet you did it. So the circumnavigation of the globe would be a similar great of this sort of power. The transformative power of knowing the map of the sea, so that one could actually reach the shore desired. This was massively transformative.” I sense a stronger power and he asks whether I would like to skip it. I ask that he tell me. “You see this circle about the globe; this is going to seem odd, but the transformative power of Pisces relates to tides in the sense that one who has truly mastered this could master the…” and I don’t quite understand it, though it’s related to tides. Finally: I see things hitting the oceans, and ask, “Is this about tsunamis?” “Yes,” he says. “So one could predict a tsunami?” I ask. “Yes,” he repeats.

“Wow, that’s deep.” “I told you it would be,” he smiles. “These are clear-cut examples which we hope you will find useful. Finally, of Cancer, the Transformational power is any time an egg opens up. We speak of Cancer as providing nourishment, by the archetypal mother: so any time a shell is cracked, allowing something new to emerge. Or perhaps what was inside was ugly and what is given birth to is unpleasant. But the power to do that is like Pandora’s box.”

King Carmara says, “Let’s close this for now. Tonight we will have one more vision.” He thanks me and I do my best to thank him more (though I’m unsure if this is presumptuous!).

Thus ends the vision.

Sunset: Similar procedure. It was easier to do after some practice.

I relax and note that King Carmara begins by working with my crown chakra; I note much more energy coming off of leaf 14. I see the kings as a triangle with Carmara atop the other two, who are being lifted up into this formation by the princes at bottom. In unison, the kings wish to speak: “Truly the greatest power of Transformation of all of these is that of Love, that of PRONOA. The Divine compassion in you, which you have sought to give to all beings and to all possibilities and unto universe after universe after universe: such is a reflection of the Most High, yet not attaining in as many degrees. Continue thou this work: for much could be said about the effects of the transfer of water from one to another in this love, but indeed, all that needs to nourish one being cometh only in the form of another, for all hath been provided by the Most High.

“Seek you to accept all that cometh across your attention, and seek you to attend to means to be more accepting and compassionate. The Most High hath given you such a great boon. Cherish it! Honor it! Honor Him most of all! Do not worry, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: for all of these things and more hath already been preordained.”

I feel this change to my subtle body, and it’s something grand opening up. Again, it is this actual Transformation, and this actual change of Mechanical Arts, and again, I feel as if I will be granted the power of this tablet, and of the astrological forces therein. At some level, I am understanding the root, although how to articulate it, I know not yet. The kings encourage me to continue the remainder of the planning (of the final days of gebofal), which is so little now left, mainly the phonetic pronunciation of Leaf 1.

Thus ends the vision.
