I was delighted to be a guest for a third time on Praxis Behind the Obscure: check it out!
Robin E. Cousins (in “The Physical Location of the Ninety-one Parts of the Earth Named by Man, as Detailed in the Liber Scientiae Auxilii et Victoriae Terrestris of John Dee, in Elizabethan Magic (ed. Robert Turner) and reprinted as Appendix III in Lon Milo DuQuette’s Enochian Vision Magick) details 91 parts of the Earth over which angelic governors have dominion. In DuQuette’s Appendix II, these governors are listed. The original transmission on May 23, 1584–via the angel Nalvage–was of 91 governors and their associated parts of Earth (these 91 governors also are associated with the 30 Aethyrs, three per Aethyr except for TEX). Yet there appear to have been plans to transmit be 30 more of them (this makes sense, given that this would make a square’s worth of governors: 121), but Kelley, to Dee’s chagrin, appears to have just moved on from them completely. My guess is that the 30 angels are related to the 30 Aethyrs, but perhaps in a different way from the first 91; mathematically 121 angels would make four, rather than three, governors per Aethyr (TEX would have five).
I went ahead and made an Enochian-language prayer asking God to send Nalvage to transmit the remaining 30 governors over these parts of Earth, and over two sessions (one on the 16th and the other just now). I also had the Round Tablet of Nalvage prominently displayed. On a personal note, this was a difficult energy to maintain (no wonder Kelley was unhappy with the process!), taking a lot of adjustment and concentration on my part. There’s a reason Nalvage’s name means Earth-fleer–his energy seems to naturally be drawn back to heaven. At any rate, what follows is the list of governor names which came through (note that I only asked for the governors’ names–I was told it was for someone else to scry the actual parts of Earth associated with them). I have roughly grouped the governors into two groups. The first is those governors whose names came via idiosyncratic methods (I recorded this so it should be reconstructible):
Governors from in the diagonals of the Watchtowers:
You may notice the “missing” 31st governor, HUTMOCS (east/fire Watchtower tablet), whose energy is not really a part of the earth per se, but more like a fulcrum between Heaven and Earth, and hence very powerful. This would make 122 governors rather than 121, but I was told that the HUTMOCS is separate and is like the 1 added to the 440 around the Sigillum Dei Aemeth.
I hope this is useful to those who continue to work on completing and expanding the original Enochian transmission.
Appendix: Prayer for God to send Nalvage for the purposes of transmitting the remaining governors’ names (this can be modified to simply focus on the remaining parts of the Earth):

“Glorious, merciful highest God: let this become Divine joy unto Thee [i.e., “please”]: open the mysteries of Understanding of the 24 and six [24 + 6 = 30] parts of the earth and those that govern them, which are not here in this time of the pure knowledge of mankind. Bring down your servant Nalvage, to the intent that his voice continues this understanding.”
Update: I don’t claim to be the best scryer in the world, and so happily invite others who use the Enochian system to validate “neo-Enochian” work like this.
I may have one more Enochian post this year, but I wanted to mention some observations about the overall structure of Enochian that I noticed recently. Enochian’s powerful initiatory system of the 30 Aethyrs has 91 governors, which correspond to the same number of “parts of the earth” (the governors’ names are derived from the Enochian Watchtowers). 91 is an interesting number Kabbalistically, as Bill Heidrick points out, for it is the sum of 50 (Mem-Yod: “Who?”) and 41 (Mem-Aleph: “What?”).
91 is also interesting in that it is 7*13. Enochian is septenary, but 13 is interesting; it’s Jesus with His disciples, or Israel with his 12 sons/its 12 tribes. Each Watchtower tablet is 12 by 13. Moreover, because the angels were keen on reversals (“The last shall be first, and the first, last”): 91 is the reverse of 19, which is a significant number in Enochian. The first 19 calls complement the 30 calls to the Aethyrs, which sum to 49 (7×7). 19 is also the number of zodiacal kings (12) and heptarchical kings (7). (13 is the reverse of 31, which is the number associated with the name of God “El” in Hebrew and which appears as a number in Enochian called “GA” (which is also the name of an angel).
Together 91 and 19 sum to 110. This sum is very close to 111, the number associated with the fully spelled letter Aleph. However, there is a 92nd governor, Laxdizi, whose name can be derived in the same way as 90 of the other governors (the name Governor Paraoan, who is included as one of the 91 governors, was derived from the watchtowers in a different manner from the other 90), suggesting the system is subtly pointing at 111. 92 is 23*4, and 23 is the total number of kings in the system (for there are four elemental kings, each at the center of a watchtower tablet, to go with the 12 zodiacal and 7 heptarchical kings).
