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:

For Astrologers: Charts of my Gebofal Journey

So this gebofal post is mainly for astrology nerds. Other than beginning on the Sunday sunrise after Passover, this was not an astrologically elected beginning.

Note the culminating Libra full moon, conjunct the Part of Forthne, ruled and received by Venus in fall as the sun, in exaltation by sign, applies to a conjunction (yet both are received by sign by Mars), which, incidentally is at my Lot of Eros. Mars, chart ruler, is received by a separating square with Mercury, which like the moon is also in fall, but is also in exile; Mars is also in a separating trine to Saturn. Saturn is in its domicile and receives Jupiter.

All planets are in their own light. In general, the planets seem fairly well disposed. Mars is my final dispositor.

Now here is the chart for the end of gebofal:

This date follows the days of the Counting of the Omer; it’s after sunset because of the time it took me to read the Angel Ave’s recited Prayer of Enoch, plus Leaf 1 of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth) after sundown. Once again, we have all planets in their own light, and the Part of Fortune is in Libra again. I am timing the end of gebofal as the end of the reading of Leaf 1, which is 4802 Enochian words, after reading the call to prayer of Enoch. I’ll probably start the latter earlier than sunset to get the timing as close to this chart as possible:

Now, however, we have not one, but four planets in domicile: Saturn, Jupiter, the moon, and Mercury: one each from the four planetary types. We have even more robust reception: a tight applying conjunction of the moon to Mars in Cancer, lending its strength to the malefic in its fall. The peregrine sun is disposed by Venus, which is received by Mercury in Gemini (the latter trined Saturn on the last day I made a call to the Heptarchy, a Wednesday, Mercury’s day, when I called King Carmara for help in giving the power of that day from Mercurial King Bnaspol to Saturnian King Bnapsen (King Bobogel is also called to lend support, having taken Bnapsen’s place on Saturday the 8th).

The Ascendant is in an applying square to its chart ruler, while the benefic of sect is sextile the MC and loosely applying to a trine with Saturn. Both the moon and Mars are injunct Saturn.

The only odd duck here is the sun; other than being in the sign of my natal sun and moon, it seems out of place, except for a trine to Pluto.

At the start of gebofal, I would say the planets start off as an interdependent hodgepodge, with most gaining strength only by reception or exaltation. At the end, they continue to lend strength by reception (and stronger reception at that), but the majority are in their own domicile. The balanced Part of Fortune in Libra suggests that the entire process is bringing out in me a clear balance to my life’s path.

I’m a Leo rising with a Taurus new moon, so the activated houses here are my 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th and 12th are all being heavily activated, and also my natal Saturn and Jupiter are activated by transiting angles.

I’ll update this post if the timing shifts.

Gebofal, Day 43: The Final Week

Sunrise: Call/Key 7, (because the first call is “not to be spoken,” making this the sixth spoken call, most practitioners refer to this as call 6). Call to King Bobogel. Vibrated the god names of “ORO,” “IBAH,” and “AOZPI.” Also vibrated Governor Genadol (Aethyr of DEO) and Zodiacal King Hononol, since the number of servient angels assigned is 7706, quite close to the 7699 mentioned in the call itself (unfortunately, I was unable to solve for an exact combination of 7699 among the available numbers of servient angels assigned to a governor/king combination in an Aethyr in time for this scrying).

Disclaimer: None of this should be taken as medical advice. Consult your physician before making lifestyle changes related to your health.

King Bobogel bids me relax. I do so and try to maintain the heart of compassion towards all possibilities. He says, “Now we will speak of Natural Substances and Medicine with respect to fire.

“Of course, as you have already noted, this is the final [dyad] of the powers and it relates in all of the ways that you have mentioned.” King Bobogel is showing me a human cell, and he says, “Behold the machinery of this cell.” I’m seeing ribosomes and mitochondria especially, and the general flow, and he says, “The main thing to take away here is the activity leading to energy within the cell.” So he draws my attention to the mitochondria, but now also to plants directly taking in the sun, and he’s just having me for a moment behold the wonder of it all, and I agree. It is wonderful.

Next, King Bobogel just reminds me of the energy flow going in from sun to plant, to fruit which can be eaten by us, and also sun to plant to animal, which we can then eat, and then all of us can then be eaten by fungi and broken down into the soil which is then easier for the seed of the plant to grow in.

King Bobogel bids me to just note the energy transfer at each step along the way. He says, “Medicine with respect to fire is best at helping this. The yogic technique of breath of fire: that can be helpful. The general benefit of exercise to reestablish the metabolic pathways, increasing the blood flow: all of that has to happen from a sheer burst of energy from the heart and blood vessels, so that all of the organs can be renourished.” He likens it to sunlight: you could be a planet very close to the sun, and yet if you have [too much of that blocked by the equivalent of] cloud cover, that direct source of light is would not make it to any plants that existed on it.

I ask if there be anything else with respect to medicine. “The impulse to find new medicines,” he replies, “that drive; the emotional tie to wanting to see the light of a loved one burst forth.” He uses that term “light” very particularly (likely to distinguish it from the emotional ties of water, astrologically speaking): this is a very Leonine sense of the word, but also, that carefree attitude with respect to that degree of exaltation of the sun in Aries. Also the sense of causing nature–or the state of nature–to conform to one’s will: very heavily Aries, and of course the desire to distribute medicine out of generosity to others is Sagittarius. He says that we’ll touch on these more at the noontime calling.

Now King Bobogel does something different: he relates the powers of medicine to the previous powers. “Consider the medicine to do many a thing, whether to poison or to cure.” To have this effect upon secret discovery, he mentions truth serum (and, as I type this up, the scientific process of uncovering the effects of a medicine). With respect to transportation, we speak metaphorically of curing the car that is not doing well, so maintenance, and also the journeys to seek the correct medicine. We speak with respect to transformation: of course it transforms the body into one with a healthier function. With respect to gold and precious stones, medicine makes it more meaningful, on account of one’s health enables all of the powers of the former. Otherwise, you are basically giving gold to a skeleton. With respect to mechanical arts, this is the offloading of the tasks that one must normally do with one’s own body. It is understanding both the machinery of the cell, but also the ability of prosthetics and more particularly machines (such as robotics) to reduce labor which would otherwise impact human health. This also refers to a person understanding the mechanical arts (and here we consider chemistry to be of this variety) to whereby medicine can be made. With respect to living creatures, it’s self-explanatory.

“Finally,” King Bobogel says, “now let us turn to Natural Substances. With respect to natural substances, the grand quality of fire is the ability to break down a substance into its component parts. It can split and rip away. Here we have electricity in its electrolytic sense, but just the general use of energy to split something down into its component parts.” Getting back to medicine and relating it back to it, the use of a Martial force to cut open a person and thereby study the being: to have that use of force and have that direct examination would be how these two powers relate with respect to fire.

King Bobogel wants to go through all of these. He says that the more that I meditate upon the relationship between each of these different powers, and how they relate to one another, the deeper I will go in my understanding and practice of Enochian, and the powers attained thereby.

I note energy arising from Leaf 7b and the tablet, and coming about me, and it’s like King Bobogel is wrapping about me and beginning the imprinting of this power, and he says that this noon I will be given information with respect to these two powers (medicine and natural substances) with respect to each of the individual signs, and then I will be given information with respect to all of the other powers and how they will relate to each other as well, and then we will begin the discussion of the triad (i.e., the trinity, related to the last three days, the complete understanding of which has eluded me thus far).

Thus ends the vision.

Noon: Similar procedure, but I neglected to call the Zodiacal King and Governor. Whoops!

King Bobogel points out briefly that we have already gone over a bit of the powers by sign of natural substances and medicine, and asks whether I have any questions. I ask whether my understanding is correct, and whether there be any additional powers that he, in his mercy, would wish to discuss with me. He says, “No. This much is done.” He is going to do a basic imprinting of the powers within me.

He says, once again, that this is more of a completing act, the scrying of these calls. I feel the powers of natural substances and medicine related to fire come within me, and I’m feeling them interact with the other powers of the angels of fire, as well as, to the extent that it’s possible, with the angels of the other elements.

He says he’s going to briefly begin talking about the other powers and how they relate to each other, but, he says, that tonight there’s going to be a ceremony which is to say, an unleashing of the powers within me, or rather into me, and with that, that will be the closing of that tablet. He says to recall that tomorrow that the tablet will be water, and that the moon and Jupiter (both of Cancer, one of domicile and one of exaltation) will be represented, once again a little early for Jupiter’s ingress into the fellow water sign of Pisces. “That’s okay,” he assures me.

I feel this fiery power come about me once again in this sphere. It should be burning me up, but instead this power is contained within my cells and nervous system. At the astral sense, it’s like I’m enflamed, not in a painful way, but rather empowered: the power of fire, and to feel the burning of passion within oneself, and moderating the level thereof.

I feel another shift to my subtle body, and it’s like there’s this permanent flame now about my crown chakra. King Bobogel says, “Let’s begin speaking about these powers within relationship to each other. Mechanical Arts and Transportation have already been discussed with respect to each other, but with respect to Transformation, again: just use your imagination here [to find examples of crossover powers]. The fire of the combustion of [machinery subject to] Mechanical Arts, moving to Transformation. It’s the same thing: the transformation is from fuel that you had before, [then] the input of energy, causing the fuel to transform into [carbon dioxide] gas and water vapor. It’s the Mechanical Arts to know how to build the apparatus that can do that, and that desire to do so, but also, then the transformation that goes along with that. Let’s say in the case of a gasoline-powered car, then, the fire is used to burn the fuel–Transformation–the fire causes the engine to go about according to the Mechanical Arts applied thereto, and that causes the transportation.

“Now, with respect to gold/precious stones and transportation: we’ve already had that [example], but how about the mechanical arts to create the mine and create the entire apparatus that causes that [discovery and refining of the gold and precious stones]? There’s a great deal of knowledge [regarding the mechanics of such] that needs to go with that, and an art, [for those mechanics] needs to match the characteristics of the mine as best one can [hence why it’s an art]. It can cause an entire transformation to the mine itself.

King Bobogel continues, “Let’s move on to Living Creatures. One can say, ‘The Mechanical Arts that cause the loss of habitat–it needs to be managed carefully, so you have to have Mechanical Arts to save the habitat, and to find an alternative. So, if you have the Mechanical Arts with respect to Living Creatures: it’s partly how to tame and domesticate animals, and with respect to Secret Discovery, again: we’ve already had some of that discussion,” and he’s not going to duplicate that.

He’s about to continue with Transformation on the rest of these, but instead says, “If you meditate on these over and over again,” or create a grid of all of these powers by each other, it’s probably the best way to solve this. “You will find that each of these powers relates to each other in ways, and you can find out the fiery, and the cardinal fire, and the mutable fire: you can do all of this. All of this is there.” So he’s telling me now that this was to be the example, so the rest of the work is on me to do this. I say that that’s fine, and I appreciate that.

King Bobogel closes by reiterating that tonight, he’s going to wrap up, talk about various topics and then do the initiation ritual, which is to say the initiation of all of the powers of the element of fire within me, all of these powers to their fullest extent possible. He says, “Really, the key here is to meditate upon which you have already learned, and to apply it appropriately and with Wisdom.”

Thus ends the vision.

Sunset: Similar procedure; I remembered to vibrate the names of Governor Genadol & King Hononol.

King Bobogel bids me relax, but less than last time. He says that it helps to recite these calls a bit more quietly, he says. He says that, just to wrap up the elements, this is the first of four conclusions, and this be of fire. He asks me to note that the first two elements of these last four days, fire and water, are the first and the last of the zodiac, and that their complements, earth and air, are done in reverse order, so that the last (water, receptive, nocturnal) is complemented first, and the first (fire, projective, diurnal) is complemented last.

I feel an interesting tingling off of Leaf 7. I recite Bobogel’s name seven times, and he bids me sit up straighter, but still relaxed. I continue to concentrate. I see a large, oval-like object, almost like a multicolored blimp, above me, with a large circular hatch and handwheel at bottom. When I open the hatch, a sphere of fire comes about me, but it’s like all of these watery, earthy, airy, and also fiery elements are within it, coloring the wheel from the inside. Yet as I go about, the exterior is clearly fiery. So this is very much like the subquadrants of the fire tablet.

I note aloud that this is of interest to the rainbow body, in terms of the fullness of one’s humanity being expressed. I’m told that yes, this is the beginning of that actual process, so that is being locked in, or opened up, or unlocked, or realized. Furthermore, the message is that, yes, all of these Watchtower powers have existed within humanity itself, but by seeking the angels, we can become more like unto them, which is a specifically angelomorphic message.

Now the angels bid me rise above the earth astrally, so I do. I see four doors in outer space, and they all open in front of me, and from each of them comes the same whitish combination of the four elements: in equal portions a smoky, breezy, watery, claylike something. They all integrate within me. I’m interpreting this again as each of the subquadrants of the fire tablet that my feet are upon. The angels mention that all of the work that I’ve done with respect to the Watchtower leaves on previous days are now coming to me as one.

Now I’m being given an actual golden crown, which I’m told is a crown of fire (but it is not flaming), by King Bobogel. I express my gratitude to him and he says, “You must needs be crowned three more times, and then the triple crowning of the last three days will occur.” He goes to one knee and bows to me. I thank him and say, “Please, we are both kings here,” and he replies, “Yes, but your kingdom is in two different realms.”

With that, thus ends the vision.

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!

Observations on the Order of the Watchtower Gebofal Calls (Part 2): Updated!

Update 1: See text.

Update 2: I have added King Carmara & Prince Hagonel to those days in which multiple kings & at least one prince must be called, for they are the high king and prince, respectively. See my write-up of Day 36, coming shortly. This also leaves (heh) both King Carmara & Prince Hagonel called times each.

I think I have something of a scheme (subject to change) which explains the different order that I’ve observed with respect to these leaves. Today (Day 35/Leaf 15), the tablet activated was the Air tablet, and because it’s Saturday, it was King Bnapsen who I called. He said that there will be a reversing, several times, of the tablet order.

Yet I have also noted the following: most of the time, the Enochian calls (which, among other things, are associated with the leaves of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth) of gebofal) sometimes have large numbers (i.e., in the thousands) in them, and these are relatively close to the number of servient angels associated with zodiacal kings in the Aethyrs. Yet there are some calls which do not have them.

Thinking through both of these discrepancies, I had a tentative order to the remaining days’ workings; it was beautiful, it was, in King Bnapsen’s words, “clever,” but “wrong.” Rather than show the original, here’s what he hacked with me during today’s solar noon scrying. I’ll link to this after the fact.

The only thing I’ll note is that tomorrow, Sunday, I will actually call on Prince Bornogo (in addition to King Bobogel). Other days I’m either calling on only the king or a king and prince jointly. Saturn and the sun invert their associations for exaltation and fall, so there are two days when their influences are combined (“the last shall be first, and the first, last.“)

The second of these, the last elemental day (yet n.b. that two watchtower calls remain on Thursday & Friday, and Leaf 1 I will read on Saturday), falls on Wednesday, yet King Bnapsen associated it with the Sun and Saturn. When I call on Prince Brorges the Saturday prior, it is nonetheless during Mercury’s hour). Mercury is mercurial! By then, astrological Mercury will be in exact trine to Saturn, and the sun the sun is transiting will be ruled by Venus, who will be in Mercury’s sign of Gemini. Finally, the sephirothic & planetary switch between Raphael and Michael for Tiphareth, Hod, Mercury, and the sun seem somehow reconciled with Saturn in this plan.

In general, he says, this is tailored to me and my natal chart (King Bnapsen notes that my Mercury is in Aries, the sign of the sun’s exaltation), so your results may vary.

Finally, note that the tablet order changes from:

  • Water-Earth-Fire-Air (West-North-East-South, which suggests the night, a reversal of the day), to
  • Air/South-Water/West-Earth/North-Fire/East (shifting the order by a single tablet), then
  • Air/South-Water/West-Earth/North-Fire/East (again), and finally:
  • Fire-Water-Earth-Air, which, interestingly, has the “first and last” from the previous two rounds reversed.

Here’s the table:
