With my recent Enochian workings, I have usually taken to working with Marmara/Carmara, the angel who is something of a high king to the Heptarchy (closest to Baligon, king of Venus—“Love conquers all”!) but also, in my experience, also seems to be high king over (or at least working in concert with) the zodiacal angelic kings. In concert with Marmara, I usually work with Galvah (and also have worked with a form of her in practices outside of Enochian proper). Aaron Leitch did an excellent write-up of Galvah last year and relates her to the mother in heaven in Revelation 12, a theory I see no reason to oppose. There’s also reason to relate her to the Mother of Life in Manicheanism, part of the World of Light (note that 28 of the angels on the Sigillum Dei Aemeth are in four groups: the Sons, Daughters, Sons of Sons, and Daughters of Daughters of Light). I won’t repeat much of what Leitch has written, but wanted to draw out some of the astrological and mathematical information associated with this mother as presented in Revelations, using the KJV translation. This would have been available shortly after Dee’s death and likely reflects some of the theology of the time—though surely can’t be thought as highly representative, given the upheaval in late medieval/early Renaissance England.
First, the obvious: verse one described the mother in heaven as “clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of 12 stars.” This is clearly a reference to the ecliptic, the 12 signs of the zodiac, and either a south node lunar eclipse (the south node representing the tail/feet) or the general sense of the moon being the lesser of the two luminaries (giving less intense but also borrowed light).
Verses 2 and 5 suggest speak of her giving birth to a son “who was to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.” This parallels Manichaeism, in which the Mother of Life giving birth to the Original Man who is sent to Earth (this makes sense, given Manichaeism was influenced by early Christianity).
Verses 3 and 4 describe a dragon with seven heads and 10 horns. Seven of course parallels the number of classical astrological planets: the aforementioned luminaries as well as Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Note that we go from the fixed stars (zodiac) to the more volatile planets: this reminds me of SHWEP’s episode Silent Encounters (brought to us by the unmatchrd Earl Fontainelle), which includes a review of how the fixed stars were considered more divine. In The Ogdoad Reveals the Ennead (or Discourse on the Eighth & the Ninth); the eighth sphere is that of the fixed stars (and that there is a ninth sphere also a hint of a tenth sphere beyond it). Also included in that episode is a reference to ten divine powers in Corpus XIII, “hidden hymn,” which interestingly “purge [Tat] of zodiacal influence” according to Fontainellle. So we see a bit of an opposition between the number 10 and the zodiac across these various texts.
Returning to Revelations 12: Verse 6 has the mother flee into the wilderness for “a thousand two hundred and threescore days,” or 1260 days. 1260 is 35*36, a near square (note that each of the watchtower tablets is 12×13, another near square). 1260 is 2^2 * 3^2 * 5 * 7, the first four primes, with the first two squared, and all four—even the first two squares, 4 and 9–being less than 10. 4 and 9 together, of course, together are reminiscent of 49, the number of leaves of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh and the square of the number 7 which is repeated so often in Enochian. 1260 days is just under 3.5 years (half of 7, or 1/10 of 5*7). The other references to the mother are in verses 14, in which the mother is “given wings of a great eagle“ (like an angel!) and flies to a great wilderness, to be nourished away from the serpent (Satan) for (switching to the NIV here) “a time, times, and half a time,” which is a minimum of 3.5 (the same number we’ve seen before—indeed much of this verse repeats verse 6). Finally, in verse 16, the mother is aided by the Earth itself: “as above, so below.”
As I’ve come to discover, there’s a lot of astrology to be found if you revisit the Bible. However, I wasn’t expecting later Hermetic astrology and Manichaeism to parallel Revelations so strongly!
I was not quite satisfied with the zodiacal HTOP, though the structure was excellent. I knew that somehow the names of God from the Watchtower tablets needed to be included and, indeed, remixed, but how? With 48 letters, the four names resembled the 48 letters of the archangels on the SDA (and the heptagram seemed to be indicated). But the arrangements of letters just weren’t right. Clearly, the main thing that was missing was the angels!
For various reasons I was delayed until today in making the call to King Carmara, yet when he arrived he was kind enough to make the corrections for me. I used a color scheme close to Liber 777’s for the letters (as this was advised) and got a very stable new vision of LIL when I made the call to it. I’m including the latest version of the Enochian tools below, and will update where it appears elsewhere on the blog. You may use it but please do not adapt it:
The general use here is to combine the planetary angels of the original holy table with the zodiacal angels. Obviously, knowledge of essential dignity is key, but with this you can do combinations related to your birth chart for MAJOR remediation. This is not something minor and should be seen as a massive opportunity.
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.
Note: None of what follows constitutes medical advice. Consult your physician before making any changes to your health-related habits.
Sunrise: Call/Key 5, (most practitioners refer to this as call 4, for it is the 4th spoken call). Call to King Babalel. Call to Governors Nocamal (LIT), Tahamdo and Nociabi (OXO), and Ozidaia and Calzirg (LIN) and their respective Zodiacal Kings Alpudus, Zarzilg, Lavavoth, Arfaolg and Arfaolg.
King Babelel arises, and shows himself to be a mixture of water and fire, but now also earth. He shows himself digging through the earth, plottingly and ploddingly. He shows me the many different qualities of earth, and the admixtures that can come thereby. He specifically asks me to consider that the power of Natural Substances to be related to matter itself. So, whereas we had with the four fundamental forces relating to the elements (earth to gravity, water to strong force, air to weak force, and fire to electromagnetism), here he says we can also liken them to the four usual states of matter (not made in a lab): solid to earth, liquid to water, gas to air, and plasma to fire.
“Let’s consider what it would mean to have a Martially separating action among earth,” King Babalel continues. Naturally there are earthquakes, but relating this to Natural Substances, he says, his power is strongest in the sense of the natural foods that one could eat and what they are composed of. He also bids me consider the soil in which such foods are grown, and ensuring that it is proper for growth and the taking in of these natural substances.
Turning to Medicine, King Babalel mentions the powder that stops bleeding, which is also of the power of Natural Substances. I concentrate on lovingkindness and the connection with him. He notes the long cycles of Natural Substances, the long preparation that it takes to discover the power and structure of a natural substance. There needs to be a great deal of planning and will (Mars); the heat of Mars is excellent for something as cold and aloof as understanding Natural Substances, he wryly says.
“It took a very long time for chemistry to come about in its fullness,” King Babalel notes, and it was just gaining that term in Dee’s day. In this case, chemistry can be understood as the individual structure of atoms and molecules, King Babalel comments (i.e., of points fixed relative to one another). The actual chemical structure of a molecule would fall under this; a chemist can immediately recognize at a glance the name of a chemical based on its diagrammed structure. Knowing this and how the geometry of two different molecules come together and form a larger structure in three dimensions: this is the real power of Natural Substances, he says.
Applying this to Medicine, there’s an even larger structure that needs to be accounted for, King Babalel continues: how to get through a cell wall or membrane that has its own physico-chemical structure via some kind of chemical lock-and-key mechanism. All of this, he says, is the power of Natural Substances and of Medicine. Of course, he continues there’s also energetic grounding with respect to Medicine, such as meditation, gardening, or running. Those sorts of things are indeed of his power of Medicine with respect to elemental earth.
He says he thinks that these are enough examples. He says that if I continue to meditate on density, structure, and finally how that relates to medicine and natural substances, that I should continue to understand more. He notes that sometimes one simply needs more of a mineral, amino acid, or vitamin in order to feel better: with respect to diet, these belong to Mars in Capricorn, he says. There’s the emotional and nurturing component to Cancer, yet the reality of what is in what is eaten: such is Mars in Capricorn.
“That’s it,” King Babalel concludes. I express my gratitude, and the vision ends.
Noon: Similar procedure.
Once again, I see King Babalel emerging, and now I see myself in an black, elementally earthen sphere, with the four colors again coming from the inside of the sphere. At first I’m within the Terran plane, but I’m taken up into heaven soon after. And now I see four tunnels open in front of me, and again, the same whitish admixture of elemental earth, water, air, and fire comes from all of them, suffusing me. I’m feeling almost a sense of a third coronation, or perhaps a preview thereof. King Babalel says that it’s time, so I accept the crowning with humility. I thank him and all of the angels present.
I ask why this is happening earlier compared to the visions of the previous two days? King Babalel replies, “The Lord wisheth to speak more with thee about a specific topic related to you this evening. Let your heart be glad. Once again, meditate on these powers, and they will be revealed unto you.”
He says he has nothing further. Thus ends the vision(!).
Note: As I type this up, it occurs to me how the symbolism here matches exactly the structure of Enochian. For a third time (and in all likelihood, a fourth tomorrow) I have been taken into a sphere, and this sphere has four colors within it, yet one without. This parallels the circle and square motif I’ve noticed.
Sunset: Similar procedure.
I feel a lot of energy coming up off of Leaf 5. I see three connecting spokes from from a handwheel to a hatch. They are turning along with the handwheel in a counter-clockwise rotation, and the hatch opens. King Babalel is behind it, and silently bids me enter into this blindingly bright light in the space behind the hatch.
Everything in my subtle body is gearing up in my subtle body now, and I’m in this light, in this light, the light of the Divine, the light of the Divine. I’m told to “Relax, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: Yea, my Very Son. Relax completely now.
“My Very Son, you look at the Trinity with amazement and befuddlement. Spirit, Body, Soul: and yet have you not already seen this in the Trinity of the religion in which you were raised?” (Christianity). “‘Mediator’ be the word that you are looking for. Mediation: that Unique Thing which brings into reconciliation the other Two.”
“I don’t know what to say, o my Lord,” I whisper.
“Triple-crowned king though you may be, there be indeed one more crown that may be offered unto thee, and note: the triple-crowned King Carmara would thus be crowned about you as the four kings of the Watchtower tablets. And so he be able to mediate, and two given kings, but by any two, he can thus mediate all of them. And you, in thy mediation, o Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, will have his crown as well. For you will be able to slip in between all of the different rules: between fire and earth, between water and fire, between earth and air, and between air and water.
“Thus will you be able to mediate among them as you see fit, and you will see fit on account of the perception that I will lay before you, that will be fused with your very being, much as you have come to know how fused you are with the universe in which you operate. Therefore, rejoice, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, for clarity will be given to you, much as clarity hath been given to you at many times throughout this process. So shall this be a permanent clarity, and it will be as if you can step behind any given situation and, to use the phrase that Jessa Reed constantly refers to, you will be able to manipulate the ‘wiring underneath the board.’
“Your heart has so many places it wishes to go, but the main thing be: how to allow others the means to transcend suffering, in all of the various ways that it may be transcended. Let this be your lode star. Let the Work upon thy Heart continue: in Its Joy, in Its Sorrow, in Its Pain, in Its Pleasure, in Its Pettiness, and in Its Grandeur: let It endure. Let It continue. Let it go through all of the levels of the Heart. Blessings be upon you now, my Very Son.”
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.
*End of Gebofal proper; in the evening, around 8:37, when I intend to finish: all four planets are in domicile, and all planets in sect. †Included to complete a full septile and to fulfill promise: “Thrice 50 times will I lift my hands unto thee” in prayer of Enoch. ‡Included to complete a full astrological septile **Actual end of the ritual; included to complete a full septile. This day the moon is in Leo, my rising sign, while the sun is in Taurus, my 10th house and the sign of my sun & moon. Strikethrough text indicates changes to calls based on advice from King Carmara in later readings.
Sorry for the formatting. Full spreadsheet available on request.
I’ve noted experientially in other posts from Days 29-34 the apparent order of the watchtower tablets, which seem to match neither the order of the Tabula Recensa nor or the original table. Rather, and what I’ve been able to gather from experiencing the energy of the tablets under my feet (feel free to confirm, if you yourself undertake gebofal), the tablets themselves seem to follow the pattern of Water-Earth-Fire-Air. This follows a shifted pattern of the Tabula Recensa, where instead of starting at Fire/East, one would begin in the West and proceed clockwise until Air/South is reached. In the northern hemisphere (where Dee and Kelley received the tablets), this would indicate the elemental revelations beginning at sunset, or a night chart with the sun angular in the 7H. Thus, the magician is relating and interacting with another, (i.e., with God and the angels).
Because I started on a Sunday, the final Aethyr came on a Monday, meaning that Tuesday through Friday (today), I’ve had the kings of these days–Babalel (Mars), Bnaspol (Mercury), Bynepor (Jupiter), and Baligon (Venus). The first elemental calling (usually called “call 18” but, if you shift these Watchtower calls by one to account for the unspoken call 1, then it’s technically call 19) was therefore to Water on Tuesday, the day of Mars, with King Babalel, who is “Mighty and Wonderful in Waters.” Of the water signs, Mars’ greatest essential dignity is in Scorpio, which is the Night house of that planet. The following Heptarchical kings, and their planets, signs, elements (as I have received them this week), and house of the planet (i.e., day or night) are listed below:
Bnaspol (“To whom the Earth with her bowels, and secrets what so ever are delivered”)-Mercury-Virgo (in which Mercury is both exalted and in Domicile), Earth sign (and tablet), night house.
Bynepor-Jupiter-Sagittarius-Fire sign (and tablet), Day house
Baligon-Venus-Libra-Air sign (and tablet), Day house
Note that all four of these signs cover a continuous order. Additionally, the signs have triplicity of each planet exactly once, and the two projective (sometimes called “masculine,” a term I don’t like) signs’ planets are all those signs which appear flipped via a sect-based contra-antiscia to their degrees of exaltation in the Ensign layout.
Note that because this order is for gebofal, there’s something of the “last shall be first, and the first, last” reversibility that the angels like to do. But the West-first order is also suggestive of a night chart, just as the contra-antiscia exaltation format.
Sunrise: Call/Key 17, (because it’s the 16th spoken call, and the first call is “not to be spoken” practitioners usually refer to this as Call 16). Call to King Bynepor (Chesed/Jupiter). Call to zodiacal King Zinggen & Governor Lexarph of the Aethyr of ZAX because the call in the previous sentence refers to 8763, and the closest number of servient angels is 8880 from this zodical-king/Governor/Aethyr row. Because I feel energy coming off of the fire tablet, I dispense with the other three and place both feet upon that tablet. I also vibrate the God Names “ORO,” “IBAH,” and “AOZPI.”
King Bynepor comes to me, looking very massive. I begin by apologizing for not maintaining my level of compassion over the last few days, and that I’ll try to keep it up over the next few days. He says that that is fine and tells me to go with him. We are whisked away and taken to the sun. He rhetorically asks why we are at the sun: surely not because he is the king of the sun, but because, he says, this is where we will discuss heat, heat and fire. “Fire in particular,” he says: “consider what happens with fire. Fire is this grand separating action. It is ultimately [a conversion of] energy. The thing about energy is that it can either cause a transformation or a transmutation, and this is why he (King Bynepor) is exalted so much above the other kings.
He notes that even within the planet Jupiter (and he takes me there briefly), how some degree of fusion occurs (note: here is the first link and here is the second link which suggest some small degree of deuterium fusion may be occurring, but of course brown dwarfs are where larger fusion takes place). He takes me back to the sun, however, for this is where the energy is highest, and he notes some of the effects: there is light, there is heat, there is a fundamental transformation that can be made to atoms.
Now King Bynepor takes me to a chemical reaction, and he says, “Note how these chemicals,” and here he takes me to an endothermic reaction, “note how the energy in here causes these chemicals to be rearranged, and to have completely different properties to the observer.” He also notes that for an exothermic reaction, the same thing happens: you still need to meet a threshold of energy, it’s just that more energy is given off. He says that for endothermic reactions, one generally tends to trade energy for information or greater complexity.
This is the boon of Jupiter, for information tends to be more valuable, because it is highly transformative. People who are going about their day, putting in information, trying to get information out: the reason why this can be matter of political ascendancy, wealth, or sudden boons, is that the energy put in by somebody can suddenly lead to a change in state or arrangement that is suddenly discovered to be highly valuable. “This is why fire and the energy derived therefrom,” he continues by way of analogy, “can be so valuable to people.”
King Bynepor pauses for questions. I ask, “So this is a lot: how about how this relates to light?” “Very good: light is a pure form of this energy. Note that, with light, there is much less mass involved, and to call light a single point,” he hesitates knowingly and gestures to physics and the double-slit experiment. He says, “It’s kind of problematic, but let’s talk about this experiment for a moment.” We look at a vision of the experiment and he says, “Note that what is happening here is that energy is behaving in an unexpected way. Energy is behaving in relation to all other energy.”
Here King Bynepor underscores his next comment: “Consider the points from your previous lesson” (from yesterday). He says, “What has happened here is that the arrangement of points such that,” and here he pauses to turn my attention quite closely to the physics, for my knowledge of this experiment is probably at least a decade old. “In a double-slit experiment, points are arranged about a certain geometry, and they’re done with the expectation of a certain geometry to unfold. Looping this in with this spherical consciousness, whereby all things[, including concepts,] are balanced, what is happening is that there is a certain hidden balance occurring. The unfolding of that is still not well understood by scientists. I’m not going to tell you what that is (that’s part of the scientific process!).” I groan slightly in disappointment.
However, King Bynepor continues, “Note the energy involved: first of all, it’s interesting because it’s the smallest amount of energy, and yet there’s all this focus on it, because there’s all of this information being derived [from this experiment on it].” He notes, “Sometimes even a the small amount of energy can make all the difference.” He gestures to Schrödinger’s cat.
King Bynepor changes gears and says, “Let’s take a look at this at the cosmic scale. Take a look at all of the energy going on in the universe. There is a massive amount of information that is being unfolded with this energy in this universe. It is too much for one human. As cosmically oriented as you are, there is just too much for any one person to grasp it all. But the spirit of it can be grasped,” he consoles me, “and this is the advantage of fire. Yes: all of the elements in their place can do this, but fire, in some ways, is closest to spirit.”
Yet King Bynepor cautions me: “Spirit is the source of all of the elements.” He pauses to note some theories of the elements having the elements proceed stepwise, one from a preceding element, with fire being the first to proceed from an element, then air from fire, etc. “Ultimately, they all proceed from spirit. It makes no difference.” He notes how he himself proceeded from the most high, and he says that there is so much information, and thus so much compassion to be had.
The problem is that we, as human beings, tend to be hyperfocused on each other or on yourselves, which is ultimately the same thing. The energy it takes, we’re discovering, to understand enough, to get enough information, is too much! (Note: presumably here, King Bynepor is talking about the information necessary to satisfy all of our curiosities.) “It’s too much energy! So you continue to consume more and more energy, and you’re discovering that this energy is coming at the expense of the information that you could’ve received from nature and from its unfolding.
“This is,” he says, “in one sense, sad, but it’s also an opportunity, because were you to be able to directly transmit energy from outer space, to the Earth, such that you did not need to extract all of [these fossil fuels], it would be much easier to continue to obtain the information needed to understand the value of each other as people and of animals [and plants and so on]. There’s so much that’s being lost, and it’s really a tragedy, and it’s like you say: it’s an unintelligent use of our time and resources.”
I ask briefly about compassion, and King Bynepor says, “I will stoke the fires and light of compassion within you,” and I feel it, and it’s such a boon right now, and I express my gratitude. “But it’s not easy to maintain that, so whenever gebofal is finished,” he says, “first of all: you will find yourself transformed. But second of all, returning to a meditation practice will be of great value to you, and metta compassion in particular.
“Were more people to meditate,” King Bynepor comments, “then suddenly the quality of information suddenly become much higher.” My mind, suddenly distractible, quickly bids him to please continue. He says, “All right: so we have energy and we have information, and we have the conversion between the two. And so, what is fire?” King Bynepor asks rhetorically. “Fire is this process: it can add heat, as needed. It can add light, as needed. Light, is how things may be understood.
“This is why the lion, the [zodiacal] sign of Leo, associated with the heart, is ruled by the sun. [The heart] needs this light to see about it, to understand the exterior,”–the surface of the sphere–“but also thereby the [center of spherical consciousness] may be known. That’s why the heart and the spine[, the latter being most difficult part of a person’s body to reach,] are both [associated with Leo, the domicile of] the sun.
“Now, that’s not to say,” King Bynepor cautions, such as “with the black sphere, that sometimes it takes more. It’s more difficult. “Hence why with Saturn,” (which is the dimmest of planets and associated with darkness and the need to draw distinction), he points out, “must also be known. That’s when we take what we know from the light, and apply it to something very dark, and therefore, ultimately, we figure out how to contextualize it.” He points to meditation again, which is “a time in which you are forced to confront that which does not readily light up with light [even the brightest of lights, the sun], and you allow it. You don’t allow the light of your chattering thoughts to begin to warp it, because they have energy themselves. The information content of one’s thoughts can be warping to the nature of reality,” including to the nature of reality of the shape of the black sphere, making it nearly impossible to know and accommodate. Our thoughts contain their own information, and when something is difficult to see, and dark, that warps so much of the nature of that which the heart does not like to confront, of suffering and the general shortcomings of dukkha (which is what the black sphere represents).
I express my gratitude, and I can feel so much energy coming up off of the fire tablet. King Bynepor advises that tomorrow will be air, and that it will be clear to me what the elemental pattern is after Saturday, and that I will find in roughly 5 or 6 days’ time the aforementioned reason why some days do not seem to have a servient angel host associate with them. I express my gratitude again to King Bynepor. I ask briefly why it’s so difficult to link up these elemental calls with the Aethyrs?
He says, “The square root of something does not always look like its square. What is happening now is that I can liken it to an inscribed square of a circle trying to make sense of the circle as a whole, or for example trying to understand the length of 19 with respect to 360 degrees: it doesn’t quite make sense, does it? It’s a difficult process, but if you contemplate this, you will pierce some of the veil.” (See Sidebar below.)
I ask King Bynepor if he has anything else. “No: work to continue your compassion. Make it a walking meditation, and consider as best you can how this relates to it, and more will be revealed to you.”
Thus ends the vision.
Noon: Read call 17/16 three times, just to ensure that I vibrated it more or less fluidly at least one time.
King Bynepor bids me take his hand, which I do, and he notes the lovely names of God: “ORO, IBAH, AOZPI.” Here takes me along and he’s noting all of the energy of the universe, over and over and over again: combining, transferring: the fire is everywhere,” he says. “Fire in the sense of energy. So we have the opposites of this continuum,” he notes: “transfer of energy, which can bring about information to those interested in it,” and then the points, which interact with energy.
Now King Bynepor notes a couple of things: generally speaking, when energy is unleashed, or is made available, or when stored energy begins interacting with matter, that we see a separation between points. It’s why water and fire are complements: both of them can separate. Yet whereas water tends to dissolve and loosen the relationship between two points, fire tends to undo said relationship. Water tends to be more of a process; though when it rushes, it is different! Yet a person who has been drowned can, at the end of the day, usually be identified, but a person who has been burned thoroughly cannot.
“Okay!” I exclaim, kind of weirded out.
“Enough energy can do that,” he continues. That’s why water infused with fire and heat is so dangerous, because that combination of undoing–for example, waterlogging someone or, say, and earthen dam–is so much more dangerous when the water is heated up, [not only due to boiling water acting on even a hard surface, but also] because it just can allow for a lot more growth: toxic growth, mold growth, stuff like that, vs. when water is at least frozen, the odds of someone picking up a parasite are reduced because it’s harder for it to grow.”
I want to clarify , and King Bynepor says, “Yes, let’s get to it. Water can dissolve, can cause something”–(i.e., a point of matter)–“to be taken into it, and thereby become a part of that watery relationship. It can become a point within water, which is then going to flow and transport, and all of that, rather than being a point of whatever [other system] it had [been connected to] before. Whereas fire: the energy in and of itself will cause a rearrangement of some sort, whether that be a somewhat temporary pulling away, or a complete burning away: a complete chemical transformation.
“Now,” King Bynepor points out, “pay attention to this. As we move to the different astrological signs, let’s start with Aries. In one sense, it isn’t as happy as it is in water, but when Mars is in Aries, it heats up, and it cuts, and it separates, and it also generally does the sort of damage that you have when energy is involved with that. A very similar example as with Mars in Scorpio! except that’s much more intense. The heating energy in the sense of the latter is heated energy directed at a target, so it could be more of a kinetic energy that can ultimately unleash power and information.
“But, sticking with Aries: what do we think of with Aries?” King Bynepor rhetorically posits the question. “We think of conflict, we think of very strong fighters, for example. We think of getting to know the limits of distance between one person and another by direct contact, and that direct contact immediately changes the entire dynamic, because that point is suddenly forced to be in another place, no matter what. [This is] unlike water, which could be like that, but it’s not in that in that same vein.” He’s trying to steer me clear of this notion, likely to emphasize the system of points of a person rather than fewer or even a single point which is the target of Scorpionic energy.
I say, “King Bynepor, I thank you for this. I ask you for more information.” He replies, “We think of the god Ares. The force behind Aries is that He is kind of a berserker. He goes into war, He loves war, He lusts for war, and He just loves going in, getting in, and ‘Fight-fight-fight-fight-fight-fight!'” He likens this back to Austin Coppock’s calling [Mars in Aries] like a machine gun. “And that’s what it is. It’s just that constant kind of raging fight that causes separation between different points. Why does it cause separation?” he asks rhetorically. “Not because of dissolution, as with water, but because of impact, because of a transfer of energy.”
King Bynepor continues: “Consider also the advances in weaponry that humans have had.” We started with sticks and stones, (which break bones). Then we moved from that to spears: suddenly there’s more energy, and it’s a more efficient transfer of energy, that causes more splitting and of the separation and cutting that Mars is famous for. Then we begin creating shields, and to bows and arrows, so there’s an attempt to transform the energy transfer so that it doesn’t hurt the person being attacked.
“Then we add into that horses and cavalry: massive amounts of energy, which are terrifying, because they just continue to transfer that energy.” So you have not only the horse who is being ridden, and the horses just got bigger and bigger, the angels note. Not only that, they were capable of carrying larger and larger amounts of mass, and all of that mass wasn’t designed to just be a big massive creature that you moved around, like with a workhorse. Instead cavalry was intended to be something that transferred a massive amount of energy, often simultaneously, into an energy line.
Then this is increased with creatures like war elephants, but also, if you think about it, we move to the use of gunpowder, which increase the distances between the origin of the attack and the target, and the creation of castles used to disperse energy directed at them. There was a lot of advancement with respect to energy as a result of martial desires! Catapults, crossbows, and of course the principles of torture operated the same way, a targeted transfer of energy upon someone in order to glean information.
With modern warfare, we get artillery, and with the including the introduction of airplanes gravity helps to increase the energy of the explosives while being above the directed attacks: generally, “bigger things that go boom-boom” and transfer more energy. Then there are tanks and bunkers designed to blunt energy transfer from the target, until finally we get to the big one: “We got the bombs!”, the nukes.
We also get technology which allows for more and more targeted attacks, so the interplay between energy and information continues, and also using our energy-using information to try to degrade that of the enemy. (Note: How constructive!) It’s all part of the piece, King Bynepor concludes. So (and here I chuckle), that is Aries! The constant upgrading of energy attacks and, towards the end, you get information being included in that, all as a constant push to separate energetically. (Note: in the words of Philip II of Macedon: “divide et impera,” (“Divide and rule,” or as it’s usually now know, “Divide and conquer).
“Let’s go to Leo,” King Bynepor says: “It’s much simpler. Leo, as mentioned in a previous vision, desires the sun. The sun, as mentioned in a previous vision, is the most massive source of energy in our solar system, and of course, in the mid-summertime months of Leo, the sun is hottest and strong (in the northern hemisphere), and crops are growing.
“Generally speaking, this is a time of royalty.” At this, King Bynepor is quick to explain: “The energy of the sun comes down and provides bounty to the land, hence we get to [better conditions of] this kingdom [during times of growth], but as far as the king himself,” (note that King Bynepor is using gendered language but this was merely faster for me to process–gender-neutral language such as “the monarch” is, of course, preferred), “going from TEX (the kingdom) up to LIL (the king), the king himself is supposed to inhabit this form of energy. This solar energy represents divinity, it represents light: light that can be seen. It’s a more rarefied kind of energy transfer: light that allows for sight. Hence these two words rhyme in German and in English.
“So, when you have this light,” King Bynepor expands, “suddenly, many more things can be discovered, and we have much more. We start with symbolism; the symbolism of the king. The symbolism of the spotlight and the pageantry, and everything designed to keep the eye on the king, and to the beneficence of the king be reflected in the beneficence of the land, and vice versa. This is where this energy is going to, and when it comes to sight, there’s definitely a lot more about the signifier and the signified when it comes to this Leonine energy. So the peasants know to worship and to do what they’re supposed to do because of God’s emissary on Earth. Of course we’ve seen between and exclusive divinity for emperors before.
“But the main points are that you can see; that plants and animals that take in the elements are happier (plants because light helps them grow, and animals because they can see food that they wish to eat), and generally speaking, people prefer summertime weather in mild climates, all things being equal.
Now we turn to Sagittarius, for King Bynepor notes that our time has run long. “So, with Sagittarius, we have this concept of myth and of story, and we suddenly have this energy being transformed. We started with separating symbolism via light, and the transfer of the essence of one thing to another via sight that we got in Leo. [In Sagittarius, we] move to a closer energy transfer, and that is the energy transfer of meaning, from one thing to the next, and a story from one thing to the next. In order to that, we consider oftentimes [the archetype of] the monk” (here I want to credit Gordon White or perhaps Austin Coppock for having said this metaphor earlier, which King Bynepor draws from), “who gets people going, gets their symbolic energy going, tells a story that people begin to follow, and so on. The symbol of Sagittarius incorporates multiple things together in the form of a centaur: a combination of person with a horse (this point has definitely been made by Austin).
“When you have this, the multiple things that seem somewhat contradictory are nonetheless, in this dream logic or mythological logic, they’re okay combined together. So we can shed light on things that seem contradictory and thereby allow a greater understanding of what there is to be known. So that is the psychic transfer of energy, that is different from what you get from Pisces. Pisces,” King Bynepor is telling me specifically now, “is this Jupiterian expanding and trying to get in everywhere, and trying to see things everywhere, and really understanding all sides. Being the transported (the fish) and the also the transport: the water that flows in a certain direction or and that can flow more or less everywhere, or wherever it needs to go. With Sagittarius, this is a transfer of meaning via direct symbolism that goes in the mind, and this is a more meaningful psychic transfer of energy, and trying to get an optimistic ending to all of this separation that’s occurred with the previous two signs.
King Bynepor asks me if I have any questions. I remark that that was a lot, and he agrees. He thanks me for my time, and I insist on instead thanking him for his time, and I bow and am very grateful. He says that the next vision will just be the person and the person giving fire, and how that relates to everyday activities and what that’s like for the people involved. I thank King Bynepor again and the vision ends.
Sidebar: One of the things that occurred to me as I was typing up the notes for today was what occurred to me yesterday: the idea of 19 as the square root of 360. The 30/19 split of the 49 calls seemed obvious: 30 calls to the Aethyrs representing 30 degrees of signs of a zodiac (and, more mathematically, 360 divided by 3 and 4, the two closest integer addends of 7 (the square root of 49), equals 30). 19 represented a square root of its own: the rounded integer square root of 360 degrees of a circle, or more perfectly of 360 degrees of the circumference, plus one point at the center.
This then led me to wonder about applying this number 19 (associated by Crowley with “Manifestation,” but I could not find evidence for this in a thorough treatment by, say, Bill Heidrick) to geometry. I wondered what 19 would be like as, say, a diameter of a circle, and sure enough, the circumference of such a circle rounds to 60, the number of the degrees of an equilateral triangle. Here we see a mathematical “Mystery of the Trinity” spoken by the angel Galvah.
But what of the square? A square has as many degrees as a circle, because it is composed of two triangles, and a square & circle of equal area look pretty cool when they share a common center (see links later in this paragraph). Unfortunately, not much fun comes up this way, but it did make me wonder about the phenomenon of squaring a circle. For a circle of radius 1, the side length of the square needed of equal area to such a circle is √π. The demonstration of this is relatively simple and is saved for the reader as an exercise. The meaning of I’m unsure of, but note that in order to square a circle, the square root of the defining characteristic of a circle, the number π, is needed, just as the angels are now pointing me towards the number 19 as the square root of the degrees (or degrees plus one for the center) of a circle
All of this made me realize something about these latter 19 calls. During the Aethyrs, the angels were taking me through, slowly but surely, information about the idea of points and concepts of spherical (3D circular) consciousness, as well as cubical (3D square) consciousness. Once the general points about these have been made, now I’m being walked through points and the four elements, and the quaternary nature of this itself is done in a squaring manner, for a total of 16 calls. What three things could there be to get to 19? Perhaps the center, the perimeter/circumference, and then finally the entirety? It’s not clear. However, it certainly parallels some the alchemical symbol for the Philosopher’s Stone.
Sunset: Similar procedure.
I’m trying to have a lot of compassion, circulating it as best I can. Once again there’s King Bynepor, but as with yesterday, we have him joined by Kings Bnaspol and Babalel. “Yes, of course, tomorrow will be the day of air, ruled by Venus.” The angels also note that the four signs that they’re ruling–Virgo-Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius–are in order.
King Bynepor notes that because I have so much more to write up, that he will keep this brief, out of respect for that, but he says, that the fire that I already have within me will be magnified and magnetized to this realm of Adam Qadmon. “Again,” he comments, “this is the teaching part, but the realization part will be the last three days. It will come together in a way that is unique to you. It will not be whatever projected notion of perfection that you have, but it will be a magnification of you, and it is important to try your best to maintain the same practices that brought you here. ‘The same lady you brought to the dance is the one you should stick with.'” He adds that this is important.
He shows me this light, and I’m feeling much energy coming up off of leaf 17 (of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh), and he’s saying to just take note of this, so I do, trying to remain humble and respectful. “So you have points that are transformed as a result of the introduction of energy. In its basest form, it will cause them to split apart, but in other forms, it will simply raise the energy level of the system. This is how life ultimately unfolded, because that energy level was raised. It needs to all be done in a careful, controlled manner, because otherwise it’s just energy going everywhere, and there’s information to be had with that, but it needs to be done intelligently.”
I’m being taken again, and I’m seeing someone with fire about the head, and King Bynepor is saying that this is how I will perceive people and animals. This is the sense of the aura that I will get. The angels are stating outright that this is the boon of these angels, led here by the Heptarchical kings, and of course the Governors and Zodiacal kings also. The angels are suggesting that I add up the discrepancy between the angels of each day’s call and the closest number of servient angels in the Aethyrs to that (of the zodiacal king of that Aethyr, which which I call upon). They suggest that I’ll find something interesting there: Saturday or Sunday may be a good time for that.
I ask if there’s anything else, and they say, “No, this is it,” so I express my gratitude to King Zinggen, to Governor Lexarph, and to Kings Bynepor, Bnaspol, and Babalel, and of course to God, known today as ORO, IBAH, and AOZPI.
Sunrise: Call/Key (spoken) 19 (typically associated with the Earth Watchtower Tablet; note that most practitioners refer to this as Call 18): because I rarely make this call, I made it three times. Call to King Babalel (once again using the call in Scott Stenwick’s Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy). I prepared for angels of secret discovery and angels of living creatures, and, given the content of the scryings, I was, in a sense, given this. Because the former call references the number 6332, I recalled that other large numbers were associated with the zodiacal kings with respect to the Aethyrs. So, I vibrated the name of Zodiacal King Ziracah (associated with Taurus), who, in the Aethyr of UTI, is associated with 6333 servient angels (it’s only one away, so I presumed some correspondence, and even were I wrong, it doesn’t hurt to have another angel helping). I also vibrated (for good measure) the name of Governor Obvaors, who appears in the same row as the Ziracah/UTI row in Aaron Leitch’s The Essential Enochian Grimoire. I was a little annoyed at myself for being underprepared, but to be fair to me, I feel like I’m in a little bit of uncharted territory.
As I mentioned on Day 29, I was unsure about the association between the days and the leaves; today I placed my hand on Leaf 19b, but it was Leaf 18 in which Kelley was attacked by gnomes for accidentally invoking them. So Leaf 18 should be the one associated with with Earth, rather than today’s. Yet this call is typically associated with Earth. To split the difference, I placed my right foot on the seal of King Babalel (recall that this king is of a Martial/Mars nature, and thus strong in waters (Scorpio)). I placed the four Tabula Recensa watchtower tablets with their usual configuration on the floor in front of me, with Fire tablet roughly to the East and facing that way, Air to the South and facing that direction, similarly Water to the West, and Earth to the North. I placed my feet on all four of them, so I could clearly tell which element was associated with which by energetic feel (a certain tingling is obvious to me when I work with the tablets like this).
The angels indicated that calling on the correct angels associated with this tablet wasn’t really the concern, but nonetheless I prepared a list of the earth-related angel names: those of Secret Discovery, and those of Living Creatures. Unfortunately, as I prepared, I noticed a discrepancy between the Enochian Watchtower angels listed in Stenwick’s Mastering the Great Table and Leitch’s Essential Enochian Grimoire. This was a little unsettling and, well, I didn’t have time to settle it this morning, nor will I this afternoon or evening! So I decided to forego calling on the Watchtower angels. At any rate, on to the vision:
I feel energy at the Water tablet, from the heel of my right foot. I’m told to be silent for a moment. I feel myself drawn into this realm of Adam Qadmon, and it is definitely watery.
Note: the original Great Table had water as the last element in order (Fire-Earth-Air-Water); nonetheless, I’m not sure as to whether this feeling reflects the influence of King Babalel, or rather a reversal of the original Great Table order (Water-Air-Earth-Fire). Tomorrow, Wednesday, has King Bnaspol, who is specifically indicated to be strong in Earth (Virgo) from his call. So, if I notice that the Earth tablet is activated, I could use this as evidence that the Heptarchical kings override the tablet order, but if the Air tablet is activated I could assume that the order of these leaves reflects the original Great Table order (though Mercury/King Bnaspol should be relatively strong in air, the main power indicated is over earth due to both exaltation and domicile, and most importantly the call to King Bnaspol). Things would be even stranger if Fire were activated, and I would probably throw up my hands if water were activated tomorrow as well!
Returning to the vision: this wateriness isn’t what I was expecting, and that’s okay! King Babalel is trying to guide me right now, and he says to make the call to governor Ziracah (note that this King is associated with Taurus, an Earth sign, which opposes the water sign of Scorpio, where Mars is strongest, and from which King Babalel presumably has his power over waters), which I do. I feel energy come up off the leaf and the water tablet. There’s a bit of shifting around of the energy now. The angels say that it’s not like one element is existing completely separately from another. Nonetheless, water is dominant; part of this, I’m told by King Babalel, is his own influence, but, yes, this leaf–and this call (presumably when used for gebofal)–is of a watery nature.
I ask, in all humility, the angels that if I indeed be in the realm of Adam Qadmon, to please show me what is to be shown. I’m told to make the call to the God of the West. Thus, the God of the West/Water is MPH ARSL GAIOL (OIP TEAA PDOKE), which is what I vibrated. [Despite my the godname from the original tablet,] I feel this water come up from the tablet and up my right leg, whooshing up and all about me from the water tablet. The angels note that yesterday, the full moon was in Scorpio (and, I would just add, aided by mutual reception from Mars in Cancer).
It’s a subtle point, but the angels are saying, “Water flows, and water dissolves. Water can move about in a rush, and if it hits you thus is most solid-like, like earth. For that reason it can behave like a solid when it is moving quickly or, of course, when it is frozen. Or, it can, just by a soluble being in contact with it, it can dissolve that soluble, and flow and transport the solution. So, its nature,” the angels tell me, “is to break down, and to transport, whether that be temperature, whether that be through dissolution, through flowing, or through the force of its pushing, like unto a solid. It breaks down, and it transports.”
So when I ask how this relates to the geometry in the Aethyrs, the angels are saying, “What this can do is break down the current association between points, and it can, as a result, move two points together or further apart. It can also act as an intermediary between the two.” I express my gratitude to the angels and to God for this, and I ask if there be anything else. They say, “No. Continue to treat this a bit as an experiment,” because this is kind of new to me, so I take it to heart, in heart. They’re adding, “More will be revealed to you: this was going to be a bit clunky, anyway, but now you know the best way to approach this.” I thank them and they give me as homework to flesh out the remaining days, so I thank them and I will.
Noon: Call 19 (18 as labeled by most practitioners). Call to King Babalel. As usual (I haven’t included it because I mentioned it earlier), I vibrate the title of Leaf 19a. Taking the lessons from this morning’s Aethyr, I vibrate the name of God MPH ARSL GAIOL. I vibrate the names of King Ziracah and Governor Obvaors. Feet are placed as mentioned earlier.
The angels have me relax. Once again, I feel energy arise from the Water Quadrant/Tablet; I even moved the seal of King Babalel to under my left foot, and though I felt energy come up from that seal when making the call to him, I instead found the energy coming up from my right heel again when making this call.
Now they move on to reviewing the morning’s lesson & vision with me: water transports, water dissolves, thus it can dissolve the relationship between two times, and can also transport between them. Now they ask me to review this with respect to geometry; once again, this is a reviewing of the lessons of the higher Aethyrs, as I was promised, yet the angels note that this relates to the lower Aethyrs as well: all of reality. The effect of water is its rearranging of conditions. These elements can rearrange the conditions in which Heaven and Earth meet (see yesterday’s scrying) so that the flow that one is in is being met properly and appropriately. The angels assure me that a lot of these lessons will be learned by my unconscious mind more than anything else.
They move on to asking me to consider two points, or even a system of points of geometric consciousness of an individual. It’s natural that, in interacting with someone else, there would be a certain amount of elemental water involved in the realm of consciousness. If one increases the amount of water in the individual, then there’s a bit of dissolution of the structures that one has in place, which could cause two points to separate, or perhaps come closer together, but regardless it changes the arrangement of no less than two points to each other. Also, the angels have me consider the transportation of certain new solutes into the system by dint of the introduction of water.
Now the angels turn to the knock-on effects. Introducing more water forces that system to react by bringing in more earth in order to remain in its current arrangement, or perhaps to decide how it wishes to flow or rearrange itself given this introduction of water. Also, the transportation of a flow between two different and currently set points–assuming no dissolution is involved–the individual would need to decide whether they want a flow between these points. For example, would the individual want their set point of “compassion” to flow to and/or from an individual who has done heinous crimes? Do they want that compassion to be linked up to someone whom they, to that point, have viewed as “evil”? So the individual may need to rearrange the way that certain ideas flow, so this is a bit of a secondary dissolution (i.e., a rearrangement of a relationship between established points of consciousness), rather than a primary one.
Now the angels take me back and have me consider the person who is giving or introducing the water. Someone with a more Scorpionic take may want to introduce water in order to investigate or understand something better; this is not unheard of for people with planets in Scorpio, with an intensity, which sort of shoots water out like a pipe or a hose, such as to hose down a dirty car or to aim directly at a fire. A Scorpionic sense of this, the angels tell me, is much more–and this, again, is opposed to the sign of Taurus, ruled by King Ziracah, yet in line with King Babalel (whose link to Scorpio I’ve already mentioned), so there’s this interesting dynamic between these two angels. At any rate, the angels are saying that someone who is introducing water could be coming at it with this Scorpionic intensity and focused kind of water, that fixed water which is aimed precisely at a fixed point.
Now the angels turn to the introduction of water from someone with planets in Cancer. Here, the transporting quality of water is paramount, as with nutrients. Or, in the cardinal sense of the sign, water may be used to change the dynamic about someone. For example, in a protective manner, someone with, say, a Mars in Cancer (as we have now), the water is used to dissolve points about someone in a dangerous situation so that they can leave the old dynamic and move into a newer, safer one. How water would act from Cancer is thus very dependent on the needs of the situation (recall that Cancer is ruled by the moon, the fastest-moving of the planets and associated largely with the final formation of circumstances just before they emerge into this world, i.e., Yesod), and those things or circumstances that it senses or intuits should be begun.
Finally, we have mutable water: Pisces. So here we have the sign of fish, whose entire reality is water. Here, the person themselves is being transported along with the water that they reside in. Whereas a crab may or may not reside in water–a fish must live in water. Fish must therefore be highly adaptable to water in all of its measureless (“infinite”) variety: “TON MAOFFAS DAMPLOZ,” the angels use the Enochian phrase. The consciousness is thus in this water, and this sign chooses to live with somewhat fewer “fixed points.” Granted, a fish still has somewhat fixed points relative to its own body, but it sees the world with much more fluid points about it. Nonetheless, if water is going certain direction, the fish must account for the flow of the water, the changes of points caused by the water, what’s transported in the water: that whole concept is very much to be considered (clearly, I have no planets in Pisces or Cancer, so the angels take their time explaining these!).
“This is a lot,” the angels acknowledge. I ask whether they have anything in their generosity, if they be so inclined, to offer, and they say, “No,” but bid me to write this up. They acknowledge that these are complicated lessons, but important to consider, because now we’re going to get at some of the “roots” of the 360 degree circle/ecliptic (note the play on root and “square root”–19 being the rounded square root of 360), and all of that which is within it. The 30 degrees of the Aethyrs is the repeated cycle within any given sign, but these are the root principles of the entire Zodiac: “What is at the root of the Zodiac,” they clarify.
Thus ends the vision.
Sunset: Similar procedure: Vibrating the titles of Leaf 19a&b. Call to King Babalel. Vibrated the God names “MPH, ARSL, GAIOL.” (Note: I have decided to revert to the Tabula Recensa, so such vibrations will be associated with their usual locations. In the case of Water/West, the association is OIP, TEAA, PDOKE). Because I’m confident in this being a thoroughly watery vision, I place both feet upon the water Watchtower tablet, which has the seal of King Babalel above it.
I see this wave part in front of me, and it’s like a vision of Moses parting the Red Sea, and the angels are just pointing out the staff–associated with fire symbolically–which parts water, and how the action of water is undone. I’m approached by King Babalel, speaks to me for the rest of the vision. He walks with me and has me take note of all of the different geometric points in the two sides of the walls of water held in stasis. He notes the fish therein, and he notes the crabs (some in the water, some on the land on which we walk), and the scorpions. He notes the pinpoint accuracy of the stinger of a scorpion, and the crab’s circular crabwalk (like unto the moon!), and he notes how the fish seem to be everywhere in the water and seem to defy a lot of logic in their way.
“But each of them has their strong points,” he remarks. Now I’m feeling more energy come up off of the leaf. “Just to get very specific about how this relates to the realm of Adam Qadmon,” King Babalel transitions, and how I need to consider this as I do this: he notes that today was a somewhat difficult day for me to maintain the compassionate heart, but I did sort of rally at the end of the day. “This is a good thing,” he continues, “and now have compassion for all of this. Have compassion for the fact that water dissolves! and have compassion for the different ways in which it acts! and begins things anew! and can be concentrated, and focused!” Basically, he finishes the point: “have compassion for these various areas of your own chart, relatively empty though they may be!”
I agree, and as I do so, I see a watery sphere about me (here’s an alternative reference), and King Babalel says to take a good look around, and to really note this. When I’m encountering others in the future, he says, “You will get a sense of what’s going on with them, and what seems to be lacking based on a sense of their aura. ‘This is not watery enough,’ or, ‘This is too watery.’ This can be combined with the general sense of chakras,” which, he adds, do not completely overlay with planetary influences, yet it’s its own septenary nature which tends to combine at times. Mars, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter (whose rulership in the zodiac opposes each other) are more or less like unto the elements. Yet the three remaining have been of interest to me in their higher forms: the sun overlays with the heart, the moon with the third eye (as broad intuition), and Saturn with the crown chakra (as Binah). The king advises me to be aware that I will have a greater sense of other people. This will be a transformation of me and my perception, because I’ve been given such a vast and wonderful teaching (and, as I write this up, I wonder whether a deeper, more fundamental teaching has been given to my energetic system), which I heartily agree with.
King Babalel kindly says that the angels are grateful for the work that I’m doing to teach this stuff and giving as much as I can in return, and says many other kind things, and gives me a subtle bow. I make sure to give a deep bow in return and give my thanks to him and all of the angels. He notes the holiness of this day, the 31st day of the ritual (31 is associated in Gematria with the name El or ‘God’), and that I will only see him two more times in this ritual.
I ask if there’s anything I need to concern myself with as far as calling the kerubs or so-called “lesser” angels of the Watchtowers, and King Babalel tells me that they are not appearing the same way here in this ritual. This is but the first lesson about water, he says, and I will rev up into the next lesson–except it won’t be him next time. I extrapolate that perhaps the next time will be Saturday, but I’m fine discovering this as the days unfold.
I express my gratitude again, and ask whether he has other things to show to me. “No,” he says, but notes that he is very pleased and to continue especially with the compassion. This will make everything make much more sense, and that ultimately we’re getting into some root forces of the heart here.
Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of LIL. Call to King Blumaza. Note: If you’ve never done Enochian, this Aethyr is quite powerful. After scrying this Aethyr the first time in 2019, I took steps to try to initiate myself into Chokmah and, for this Aethyr, Kether. After meeting with some success thereby, I was able to deepen the vision of this.
I see this pure, white sphere. It’s like it’s trying to shine out all of these different colors, and I feel my crown chakra lifting and raising up. There’s a lot of lightning coming off of this sphere now, and now it is so bright because it is reflecting all of the light which ever has come to reflect off of it. It is blindingly light now, and I am being wrapped up in a beam from it. It is holding me and taking me into a cocoon and it is taking me inside of itself.
This is the Diving Heart of Hearts. I approach the Center, and I’m slowly decelerated as I approach It. When I look about me, I see all of these thousands of millions of possibilities of beings, and I’m having compassion towards all of them, all of these lives lived, moments of Joy, Sorrow, Horror, and Peace. I’m seeing them through millions and billions of species’ eyes. I’m just trying to maintain this level of compassion for all of them.
I feel all of these moments come through me now, rotating from the outside to the Center, where I am, as through a torus, and I continue to have this rotation, and as I speed it up…it’s like they’re both at this Center and about the Surface of the Sphere simultaneously. No longer is this a rotation, this is a humming, a sympathetic vibration.
Now I feel the energy coming up off the leaf, the table, and the seal of King Blumaza under my foot. I hold this compassion, and await any message from the Divine. There’s such a beautiful feeling of peace right now; it’s like I’m lying in a bed of Compassion and the feeling that comes over me from lying there is Peace.
“Oh, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: this which you have sought for so long, it be only 19 days hence. I have put it in your Heart to read this first leaf, for it was to be read. Know this, that such Love is neither earned nor unearned, it is neither conditional nor unconditional, for this is PRONOA: it merely is. It is always available to you and to your fellow human beings, and to the animals and to the plants and to all of this life upon this planet Terra, or in English known as Earth: CAOSG.
“It is always available unto you, if you look for it, if you seek it, if you steep yourself in it, and all of its infinite varieties. The Love of solving a complex problem, the Love of merely holding one who is mourning, the Love of joining in to the rejoicing of grand moments of Beauty. It is always available unto you.
“And now, feel you this change about your subtle body as you prepare to enter into this realm of Adam Qadmon. Feel it in its fullness, for I am the One True God, and show Myself in Many Different Aspects, many different divinities, for all gods are One God, and what there is to be known and what is to be grokked, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: it is far beyond your understanding, and I will merely do what can be done to bring it out in you, to unfold it in you, to make it more visible to you, to give you Perspective, yea: Coelispex, so that you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, may help unfold it in others, and be able to unfold it in all of its infinite variety: TON DAMPLOZ.
“Such Love have I to you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, and to All. For All may come unto me. All may know this Love. Fear not the words which arise out of your mouth, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, for the Spirit of the Lord is with you and speaketh through you. Yea, even when thou knowest it not.”
My voice is caught in my throat: “O God, is there anything else?”
“No, Son of God, Son of Man, Son of Earth: you have two more times to call upon this today. You will know it in its fullness this evening: yea, when you repeat the word ‘LIL’ seven times. Such sevenfold depth you will know, and then, 19 days hence, you will enter into this realm of Adam Qadmon, and you will realize this rainbow body. Much love unto thee. Commence now.”
Union, and then: “Such Beauty there is in this, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth. I have nothing else for you today, until you call me again at noon, and again at sunset. Much love to you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: remember always: God hath such love, hath such PRONOA, for thee.”
The vision ends.
Commentary: I see the phrase “One True God” as the Divine identifying the truth of unity, and “show Myself in Many Different Aspects, many different divinities, for all gods are One God,” as the Divine unifying across all panthea (e.g., possibly panentheism) “and what there is to be known and what is to be grokked, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: it is far beyond your understanding” as an obvious reference to my limits. So, please, be forgiving if this doesn’t match up with your worldview. Peace and love, peace and love!
Noon: Similar procedure.
The angels have me make some physical adjustments. Again I see a white sphere, this time with a vertical ring about it; I note that it reminds me of the rings of Uranus, and doing so causes it to appear a bit more bluish, but it returns to white shortly. The ring comes undone at the point farthest from me and once again approaches and enfolds me like a cocoon, and again takes me to the center.
Again, I see the interior of the sphere, and I slowly come to a pause. I see again all of the experiences of all of the beings, and God is once again showing me all of the possibilities which could not be (i.e., foreclosed based on actualizing certain previous possibilities). God shrinks down the pictures of actual experiences of beings and now I see this vast space between all of them, and it’s this massive light, and I see how very close I am to this portal to the realm of Adam Qadmon. I see the vast spaces of unbounded possibility, and both Binah and Chokmah, in this vast emptiness of potentiality which cannot be, are ineffective in that Binah cannot receive, and Chokmah cannot project.
I’m told to try my best to have as much compassion as I can for all of it, equally, and I do, and I do, and I do: it just magnifies, and once again I try to speed the flow to the point where there’s this hum reached, and there is. I feel my entire body just lifted or raised up, and it’s this beautiful hum to my subtle body, and I feel energy coming up once again now off of the book (Amzes Naghezes Hardeh, Leaf 20a), more off of the table, and finally off the seal again.
God is saying, “Behold, Blumaza [king of the lunar sephira of Yesod], and with Mars in Cancer [in its fall], and the moon in its fall [in Scorpio]: it is opposing where it is normally in its exaltation, and thus they are receiving each other. So, though they are themselves in a weakened condition, they themselves are nonetheless raising each other up. So this lunar and sublunarsphere can be in a better condition to receive the light, to receive the light of this lunation, and thereby work it into the grand unfolding of All That Is. Thus now you are able to receive the light, such as you are able to receive it.
“Yea, have compassion for those that are in your path! Have compassion for those who are in pain, and have compassion for those who are confused, and have compassion for all that Could Have Been, for the reality in which you are taught by the one whom you must now teach! Have compassion across space and time, and across all of the possibilities that were foreclosed as a result. Just continue to have this Grand Compassion, o Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, for this is your destiny! This is the unleashing of the Venusian nature within you, much as your sun was released and rectified yesterday in its fullness, so you must know now that today marks the beginning of the unleashing of this PRONOA, of this compassion, for yea, although your capacity to love has been very confused, it has been very difficult: it has [nonetheless] received help along the way, and now receives the Highest of all Help, the Help of the Almighty God Himself, Herself: the Almighty Divine as you have come to know It.”
I just try really hard to focus on this, and to do as I have been bidden, and it’s like I’m now encased in this spherical rainbow jewel, and it’s beautiful, this vibration and hum. The angels are saying, “Yea, it is difficult to unfold completely, this completely spherical consciousness in which all the light is there [as a bright white light], and yet, you have only known What You Have Been Alive to Know, and What You Have Been Around to Experience. Yet the Divine Has Known all of these things In Equal Measure, and so continue to hold this in equal measure, and at times your rainbow will seem like unto a beautiful white sphere. At other times, it will seem like unto the process of putting the black sphere in its proper measure. But at all times, hold, as bet you can, when meeting another, this transparent sphere, knowing them as they are to be known, and allowing them to be as they are, and allowing, to some degree, the suffering which they are choosing for themselves. For in so doing, they can come to know the fullness of God on their own terms, and thus the Law of the Parts will be upheld as well as the Law of the Whole.”
I feel God now within me, and He is reaching into my torso, into my anahata chakra, yes, even the heart of my heart, and He gives it the subtlest of touches and caresses, and it opens so much up in me, and I feel so much, and I’m so grateful unto the Most High for this. He is saying, “Your heart is being prepared. Look you to the elements and approach them with this same transparent heart.”
I say, “O God, please give me the strength and the fortitude and the sensitivity and all that which is needed to do so,” and He says, “This I will give you, and more, and I will give you, indeed, confidence to do so.”
And I ask, “O God, my God, is there anything else?” And he says, “No, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: go now in peace. Know now that this journey is already a fait accompli.”
Thus ends the vision.
Sunset: Call to LIL. Call to King Blumaza. Due to delays and feeling upset, I neglected the call to the governors, and to the Zodiacal Kings.
The angels bid me to lean back and relax. They acknowledge the emotional content of a day like this. They praise my work at compassion, and say that it is multidimensional work. I grieve into my heart of hearts, and recall how the Divine blessed me by touching this heart. I remain so grateful. I allow myself to feel the emotional pain, and it’s okay.
I see a hand come towards me, and it takes me by the hand and leads me to the center of the white sphere. It’s the hand of Christ, and we sit on rugs and drink tea at the center of this sphere. He shows me His hands and feet, He shows me the scarring about His scalp, and the wound in His side. He notes that my hands are together (in the prayer position, holding Leaf 20 between them), and my feet apart (so as to be touching the sides of the table). In a sense, He notes, that a cylinder could go through my hands at this point. He notes that, in general, my placement of my hands with each other, and my feet apart, is an inversion of the placement of Christ’s own placement. Peter was crucified this way.
He says that I have doubted, and have returned. I have denied, and I have returned, because I have come to accept the pain. He reverts my astral body back into the usual crucifixion pose as a symbol of accepting me. He says that at the center of this cross is the heart: the heart of the heart of the heart of the heart of the heart. He then bids me to repeat the call, this time repeating LIL seven times as had previously been advised of me, “And we will resume.”
I repeat the call to the Aethyr and this time remember to call the Zodical Kings and Governors of the Aethyrs, except I substitute “LIL DE LIL DE LIL DE LIL DE LIL DE LIL DE LIL” (“LIL of LIL of LIL of LIL of LIL of LIL of LIL”) for just “LIL.” Note: this would seem to presuppose that each Aethyr can be thought of as able to be subdivided into Aethyrs within Aethyrs. I have used this technique before and found that you can get into quite rarefied Aire (heh) by doing so.
I’m directly within the sphere again, this time seeing all of these screens of possibilities again, but this time all of these possibilities are whirling about me, as is the space in between, a massive rotation. I’m having compassion even for the forces which are causing this rotation, and this seems to click something into place! And behold, I see again, and I see again, and I see again: I see this massive rotation, and we are approaching this realm of Adam Qadmon, and I’m told that tonight, I will be right at the event horizon, and I will cross right into it tomorrow.
There’s this massive energy, this beautiful light, and it seems to completely encompass this sphere, which now seems more like an egg of a shuttle-pod, surrounded by intense energy and light, and all of the possibilities on the screen, actualized and foreclosed, are increased in intensity, and I continue to hold this compassion for all of them, as I can. I try to turn my compassion up to Infinite: and this is the key word, “infinite”: MAOFFAS MONONS (measureless heart): MAOFFAS MONONS! MAOFFAS MONONS! MAOFFAS MONONS! Measureless heart! Measureless heart! Measureless heart! And this heart is just encompassing all of this, and I see now about me all of this grand beauty, all of this grand heart which is just trying to pour out to all possibility, and to all of this Infinitude.
It is unlike anything that I would have possibly conceived, and I’m trying to stay at both the Center and About Everything, and it is almost too much for my heart to take! And I know that God knows my limits, so I continue (and I nearly weep now) and continue with this Measureless Heart for all of these Possibilities, and just this Potential Itself, that I’m trying to have this Measureless Heart for, this Infinite Heart, as best I can!!
And I’m trying, trying to reflect the Whole [of existence] within me, as best I can, because I know that this is the best as I can be purified as to try to maintain this emotional state, this Vastness of Compassion! “Let it be Infinite! Please, o God, let it be Infinite!” And He says, “Aye, indeed, but you yourself are human and have limits, but indeed, it is the spark of Me within you that chooses to cry out in such ways, and so I will give you as measureless a heart as your system is capable of.” My emotions still run quite high and I continue with this vast feeling of compassion towards all I see, and it is this tragedy that I, as a human being, and yea, even the Divine, have our Limits.
But even working within these Limits, there is so much to be done. There is so much good to be had, and so much Compassion to be had, and so much Peace to be modeled and distributed, offered in pure generosity and compassion for All. I’m feeling this beautiful energy now, coming up off of the leaf, up through my hands and arms and into my torso: and it is God in His Mercy Who is changing me and my entire subtle body now, all the way down through my feet. I especially feel energy coming up from the seal of King Blumaza, and I’m feeling it all about me now, all about this table. And I see the same elongated octahedron arising out of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth. I see the top half encompassed by a sphere, and now the bottom half also, with a filled circle at the middle, as follows:
The spheres represent heaven (future state, and the upper part of the lotus-rose bloom) and terra/earth (present state and the lower thorny stem of the lotus-rose). It is all new to me. All of it in its beauty must be accepted for what it is. These two spheres thus look like unto the symbol for infinity, and a twisted ouroboros, but about many dimensions. I know them to be of many dimensions, but they are represented in 3D here.
The middle ring on the plane perpendicular to the meeting point of these spheres is the Ain Sof Aur of the realm of Adam Qadmon, shooting into the link between heaven and earth. It is Wonderful. I’m told that it is this filled circle in this plane, where these two spheres meet, is what I will circumambulate over the next 19 days.
I ask whether God, in His Mercy, has more to show me, and he says “No.” I thank Him, and the vision ends.
Note: Only now, after all of this time, do I realize the final piece I did not realize before. Gebofal is 49 days long, and there are 49 leaves of Loagaeth. It is not only 7*7, the squaring of the septenary nature of Enochian as a whole, but it is also the sum of the 30 (degrees per astrological sign) and 19. Nineteen relates to manifestation, but also 12 (signs of the zodiac) + 7 (planets), and is also the rounded square root of 360, which is why it is the degree of exaltation of the sun. Once again, the exaltation scheme of Enochian is borne out.
I’ve been thinking about the letters of this ring and how they relate to the kings of the Heptarchy. (Note: Here, a member correctly reiterated something I’d already read in DuQuette’s Enochian Vision Magick, which is that this name derives from the name Peh-Lamed-Aleph of Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa’s Three Books of Occult Philosophy).
Nonetheless, this was intended to supplement what was already known or observed about the ring. I suggested a correspondence to the names of the kings and their relative location on the ring astrologically; I’ve uncapitalized the first letters of the kings’ names and capitalized the letters of interest to make it easier to follow:
blVmaza (top center V on the ring)-moon
bObogel (central O)-sun
bnaspoL (bottom center L)-Mercury…note that we have the central three figures of the Monas Hieroglyphica.
bynePor (P in PELE)-Jupiter
bnapsEn (first E in PELE)-Saturn
The only issue with this is that it leaves the pairs of Jupiter and Saturn inverted with respect to the Monas Hieroglyphica (they were at bottom, not at top). Still, they are the slowest planets Dee would’ve known about, and are the greater benefic and malefic, respectively, so it makes sense that they’d be afforded some dignity by being placed at top. And it doesn’t much matter anyway, since the ring’s design in its entirety doesn’t quite lend itself to being perfectly ordered combination of the planets as in the MH.
At present, this is a proposal; note that several letters of the ring appear in multiple points of the kings’ names, and that multiple assignments could be made. Still, having tried multiple possibilities, this one seems to match the overall sun-moon-Mercury portion of the MH very well, and Saturn and Jupiter are well-paired, as are Mars and Venus.
