On Galvah & Her Mathematical and Astrological Aspects

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!

Zodiacal Holy Table of Practice Finalized

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.

Use it wisely, use it well, use it joyfully.

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 35

Sunrise: Call/Key 15, (because the 1st call was “not to be spoken,” most practitioners refer to this as call 14). Call to King Bnapsen, vibrated the names of angelic Governor Tabitom of ZAX and the corresponding zodiacal king, Zarzilg. Because the Air tablet was obviously activated energetically, I vibrated the names of God “MOR,” “DIAL,” and “HCTGA” (Note: Going forward, I have decided against following the godnames from the original Great Table as I read in one of my sources for Enochian, and instead have returned to the Tabula Recensa godnames, which for the Air/South tablet are MPH, ARSL, and GAIOL; see below). My right hand is on Leaf 15b.

I feel the presence about me of King Bnapsen. He asks me to note that we are now into the aspects of the tablet dealing with Mechanical Arts and Transformation and earth”–here I believe I misspeak, for this is the air tablet. “He bids me consider this for a moment, asks me to note that I’ve already been through two of the cardinal signs”–one! Libra: the others were Virgo, Scorpio, and Sagittarius–“but they were of secret discovery and living creatures. So now, with Mechanical Arts and Transformation, let us consider Air from this perspective.

“Let us start with Mechanical Arts,” King Bnapsen begins. “You have already seen the beautiful things, all that can be ‘wrought in aerial actions,’ which is the power associated with King Baligon.” With King Bnapsen, “It is obviously ‘mechanical art,’ but most of the mechanical arts will disrupt air. That is their nature. Literally any machine will disrupt air, and if it does not disrupt it directly, it will do so via electricity, which is most typically associated with things like lightning, it its most obvious example [which happens in the air]. Electricity can be [in this sense of a mechanical art] that same sort of flowing, that we saw with previous air, so electricity can in some ways be considered the higher octave of air. Nonetheless, electricity is associated most closely with fire and electromagnetism, but here, the flow of electrons in order to produce that energy, that mechanical art that allows them to do so, that causes them to flow about certain points, as opposed to a more general force. So here, again, just to specify, because there will be questions about this: electricity in its highest form is of fire, but in the sense of limiting it to certain points, to cause a certain reaction: that is a mechanical art, an art which causeth a desired flow, a flow of electricity.” He ends here, but it seems like he is indicating that electrical flow is of air, while the force of electromagnetism corresponds to of fire. I’m sure I will ask for clarification at the next session.

King Bnapsen says to me, “Now let us consider Transformation, and the transforming power of Air. So, once points have been introduced to somebody, and they’ve been allowed openness, there’s a lot of different ways that they can go, but in order to do that, care must be taken to decide when and how such air should be introduced. Astrologically at that time, the planets not being correctly aligned: that’s sort of the phrase that’s used a lot. The angels,” King Bnapsen continues, “are doing a lot to try to ensure that the right things are happening at the right time or thenabouts. So what kinds of transformations can occur by air? First of all, [there are] new thoughts, new ideas, new ways of approaching things, solutions to problems that are communicated either by the observation and thinking, and oftentimes verbalizing. So once a solution is had, of course, it must be verbalized, it must be written up so that it can be shared with others. But one could also, for example, keep notes: again, communicating, transforming a verbal thought into a written one. So all of these powers of transformation could happen. There’s that phrase, ‘the winds of change,'” King Bnapsen concludes. “That’s a more general term that we have.”

I express my gratitude to King Bnapsen; I express some concern about writing this up correctly, but he assures me that he will be with me when I write it up. “You needn’t worry about that.”

I ask him briefly about the pattern to the tablets. “Yes,” King Bnapsen replies, “this will be a going forward, a going backward, a going forward, and then a going backward again. Thus, all of the planets in their domiciles and exaltations will be honored.” I express my gratitude for this, and I pause briefly to give him space to say anything else. He points out briefly to note that the highest mechanical transformation (of air) that we are seeing right now is drones, and allowing people to literally take flight, which used to be a siddhi–not in a large mechanical craft about them, but with small machines flying down a street. “You’d better have a very good mechanical art for that to work!” he exclaims.

I’m getting a strange sensation off of Leaf 15b. King Bnapsen bids me, “Pause a moment and allow the Transformation to happen about you, and to also find yourself becoming more and more capable when it comes to Mechanical Arts related to Air.” So I do. “Opportunities will avail themselves to you to both sharpen and improve your Mechanical Arts, he concludes.” I express my gratitude to him again. He bows to me and says, “More will be shown to you when we break this down by astrological sign.”

Thus ends the vision.

Noon: Similar procedure.

I ask King Bnapsen about my proposed order of the tablets and the associated angels (provided, of course, the order of the tablets is ultimately correct). It was wrong; we take 20 minutes correcting it, and I have written up his plan for the remainder of gebofal here.

After all of this, King Bnapsen says, “Let us briefly, talk about each of these signs with respect to Mechanical Arts and Transformation. Beginning, once again, with Gemini: as far as Mechanical Arts go, this can be anything from a quantum state, which is uncollapsed; or a vibrational state, which could be alternating current, or a bladeless wind “turbine,”: any kind of mechanical art like that. To this he suggests the piston, moving up and down, always returning to the same location, is like Gemini, because it’s this constant back and forth (and in writing this up, King Bnapsen reminds me of simple harmonic motion which we often try to replicate), from one spot to the next and back. This could also be a more complicated thing like a circuit, for which there’s always this leaving and returning of the current (yet here he notes that we’re approaching Libran territory right now), but the idea is of any Mechanical Art that can do that. There’s also the power of Transformation: oftentimes Gemini energy is accused this because they can seem two-faced, talking one way to one person and another way to another person.

He moves on to Libra: “Again, there’s this harmony among circuits (in the context of Mechanical Arts), so if you have an idea of a blowout or something, obviously Libra is not being honored that way. Libra is much more like Direct Current: it’s this flow which continues and goes into various directions and then returns. A computer chip is much more like Libra than it is like Gemini, even though it’s operating on a Gemini, 0/1, binary principle. That’s sort of an arising Libran harmony that comes out of that.”

I’m really trying to concentrate now: “Behold, with respect to the power of Transformation: this is the transformative power of Love, the transformative power of an entire group based on the Compassion of an individual! This is key for you to remember, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth!” I take this to heart and in heart.

“Finally,” he finishes, “let us take into consideration Saturn in Aquarius, or the Aquarian in general kind of transformative power. The first thing to remember of the Mechanical Art is simply the gun, which allows, via the expansion of compressed air, a projectile (i.e., a bullet) to move throughout the air.” (Note the expression of “getting pumped full of lead.”) “It sort of gets blurred a little bit [on account of the explosion, via fire, which causes the air to suddenly appear and become compressed].”

I ask for another lesson, if it pleases King Bnapsen. “Much of the chemistry that you see under various kinds of controlled-air conditions: this can be considered a Mechanical Art of a type” (and, indeed, a Transformation). He pauses for a moment and I try hard to concentrate to meet his transmission: “The power of Transformation of someone who is outside the group,” returning to astrological significations. “So, one who may not shine as the sun or glow as the moon, who in the darkness sees problems with the group as a whole: considering that with respect to Aquarius, consider any person who does maintenance. This includes not just fixing things but seeing what is a problem with the system as a whole. The Mechanical Art here applied is the mechanic, who is taking the system and Understanding via their knowledge and experience what is wrong with the system even without being able to see it necessarily, based on inference. This includes any form of diagnostic. It’s a matter of finding certain things and then applying a certain logic, again, without seeing the problem directly.

“This is enough,” he concludes. I’m very grateful to King Bnapsen for the corrections he’s made, and he says, “You’re welcome,” and that he will return one last time for further instructions. I thank him and thus ends the vision.

Note: I will revert to using the typical god names from now on:

  • Fire/East: ORO, IBAH, AOZPI
  • Air/South: MPH, ARSL, GAIOL
  • Water/West: OIP, TEAA, PDOKE,
  • Earth/North: MOR, DIAL, HCTGA.

I cannot recommend the previous associations on account of their not being associated with the order of the Tabula Recensa, and will add strikethrough font for them on prior posts.

Sunset: Similar procedure. Call to godnames of MPH, ARSL, and GAIOL after deciding to stick with the Tabula Recensa.

King Bnapsen says, “You have felt a lot of Saturn in Aquarius right now, which is not fun or easy,” but he bids me to just pause, and hold, and just try to show gratitude and compassion: to just clear my mind. I take a 7-7-14 and 4-4-8 breath. He approaches me along with the other six kings of the week. He says he knows that this was difficult. There was some confusion that needed to be dealt with, and that a lot of the ritual had to be built up from scratch for me. He knows that this was not easy on several planes.

“Yet, at the end of this, you have a functioning structure,” he encourages me. “You have something that covers all of the planets. You have done all of this on the fly, of course with plenty of help from the angels, but even calling us is very difficult.” So he congratulates me and says, “This is a good job.”

Now he bids me note the air, how the air of the fan is very cooling. “Let’s get a little hypnotic here,” and so I allow him to induce me three times (I’m fairly hypnotizable). Afterward, I feel more energy coming up off of the leaf. He continues to induce via tension release. “O Son of Man, o Son of God, o Son of Earth: you see how subtle a communication can suddenly change everything? It changes the entire flow of your being.

“You worry so much about how well these categories [of the elements, the angels’ powers, and the associations made to modern science in these visions] fit in with each other or do not, and yet they are all of a piece, aren’t they?” he reminds me. “They are all of the Root, and you sense this Root of Leaf 1. God hath given you permission to read of it, and so you will see in many ways, the way it is all connected together. Your understanding and your wisdom will increase, and you will get at the Root of Happiness, and you will taste of It: you will taste of Happiness over and over again. So remember to hold on to your compassion and to set about you your good habits: habits of meditation, that will bring you daily Joy and Wonder, and it will all be a better flow for you.”

I ask King Bnapsen if he has, in his mercy–he or any of the other angels–if they have anything for me. He gives me a hug(!!) and shows me a vision of the future, of which I see the spirit. I see a beautiful and colorful and a pleasantly cartoonish landscape. He shows me transformed: my status is much different in society. It’s like I’m leading a completely different life, and I’m looking back now, at myself saying these words (of this recording), listening back, and I’m remembering the feeling, the tension, and I’m remembering letting go of that, and it getting smaller and smaller.

King Bnapsen says, “These are ideas, and yet these ideas have with them some merit.” He notes that Prince Bralges is called during the hour of Saturn on a Monday: [his placement is there because] the best visions you will get of your intuition are those that align with reality.

The world seems so much different: bigger and smaller at once. I’m noticing it in vivid colors. King Bnapsen says, “That’s what your heart will feel. It will feel this constantly. It’s as if the rainbow body that you have now extends over and over into the rest of the world.

“We have nothing else for you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth. We understand that you are human, and at times even we wish to give our boon.” I thank King Bnapsen and I return the embrace. I am humbled by this, because it was very kind, a great kindness, and he replies: “Two more weeks have you. At times they will be more intense and at times we will see to it that they are less intense, but they will always be changing. There will be more Mechanical Arts, and there will be more of the powers brought unto you, and it will make a difference in your life. It will take you off of this path, and onto a better one, one in which your status is completely changed.”

And that’s it: the vision ends.

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.

Gebofal, Day 34

Sunrise: Vibrated the title of leaf 16b. Call to Heptarchical King Baligon. Call/Key 16, (because it’s the 15th spoken call, most practitioners refer to this as call 15). Call to Left foot placed on the seal of King Baligon (over the fire & earth tablets) as a final test of the scheme. Vibrated, in turn, Governor Abriond, Zodiacal King Cadaamp, and King Baligon (seven times each–this is how many times I do so for the preceding calls, sorry for noting this stuff after the fact). After these, the energy from the air tablet was obvious, so I moved the other tablets out of the way and placed the seal atop the air tablet and then both feet upon the seal and tablet. I then vibrated the God-names of MOR, DIAL, and HCTGA, seven times each–update this should be MPH ARSL GAIOL based on the Tabula Recensa. I changed my original approach based on incomplete information from an otherwise reliable source–or I just read them wrong lol).

King Baligon just has me breathe easily. He says he knows it’s been a lot, and kind of confusing, because I’ve been getting these lessons piecemeal, whereas in the Aethyrs it’s more of a stepwise process. Here, it’s been more like, “Here’s this chunk, here’s this other chunk,” etc. These are all roots, he reminds me: roots to the issues of the heart.

He takes me into the clouds, into the air, and he has me observe for just a moment the sphere about the earth, the aerial sphere (i.e., the atmosphere). He notes that something like this same sphere is what I will see when all of these powers are steadied within me. “Just note,” he encourages: “there’s something so beautiful about just having fresh air,” and I reply, “Oh yes! This is something that I took for granted for far too long!”

King Baligon muses, “The nice thing about air is that it conducts sound. People can hear, and they can hear music, and nothing else compares to music. It’s beautiful, it lifts up the soul, and it’s wonderful. The issue with music is that it’s this grand communication, and even when you make these calls,” he says, “you are reading. You are looking, so that’s the fiery part, but you are also speaking, you’re converting that. The energy of conversion is itself fire, but the sound itself, and the way it hits the ears: all of that is conducted through air.

“Let’s ponder what air does,” he suggests. “Air[, like water,] also dissolves, but only to a degree. The main thing that air does is convey, usually not particles so much, but waves. So we have this wave-particle duality, and much of the energy transmitted by fire is of a wave-like nature,” so he notes that I was pondering the discussion of electromagnetism, and how I was concerned about weak force vs. strong force. “Weak force,” he reminds me, “is associated with air, electromagnetism with fire.” Electromagnetism, he says, really is the big one when it comes to this wave-like issue, and air(/weak force) is also like this (note this is unclear to me).

“When you think about a transfer of air, there is a great cycle here on Terra” King Baligon mentions (note: I’m substituting “Terra” for “Earth” throughout this post to avoid confusion with elemental earth), “but it’s very subtle. The plants do their thing, the animals and fungi do their thing, humans and animals do their thing, and so on, but of interest here is the fact that it all comes into one thing. This is not unlike water.”

I interject politely to ask how this relates to points [in geometry]. “Here we have the concept of a–it’s a bit more harmonious, so hence why Venus is here. But it’s more of a harmonious occupation of a space filled with points. So Saturn is happy here because agreement can be reached, like it or not, across the various points.” I interject again: “I’m really hoping for a profound insight, as best I can.”

King Baligon takes my request well, and says, “Let’s get to it.” He goes through a few visual examples, but we settle on first, the picture of wind blowing a wind turbine. He notes that on Terra, most of the winds are caused by the uneven heating of Terra. “And you’ll see that: first of all, air requires an open space to do its magic. However, it can be compressed and studied, and can turn fetid and putrid in the event of air being locked in a closed system, so it prefers openness. So, openness, when you think of a [mathematical] field,” and I’m shown a mathematical grid upon a black background for simplicity, “and you think of openness, you think of this air upon it in an open field.” He takes me to a view of the grid. “What air can do is go anywhere, and how fast it goes depends largely upon the amount of energy [elemental fire], but it wants to go everywhere. It wants to go into water and can dissolve into it. It can go into fire as a flame, feeding it that way. It can go faster or slower, depending upon the amount of energy.

“Most specifically,” he emphasizes, “what air does is it can clear out, but it can also bring in. So, usually, on this planet, it can clear out pollution and smoke from, say, a campfire, and it can also bring in fresh air from trees and such. But both the ancient and medieval thinkers were concerned with fetid air, and the need for fresh air: and all of this was true! The quality of the air matters. And so, that’s why pollution is such a big deal, because air [on this planet] has limits in its ability to carry the bad things away, because it’s not, strictly speaking, completely open [over a short length of time], and it cannot, on its own, completely undo the nature of that which has been entered into it. Same thing for water,” he remarks.

I ask, “What else about air?” King Baligon replies, “Note that the transfer of air tends to happen not with earth, but within water,” hence why Venus is exalted in the water sign of Pisces, because Venus (ruler of Libra) can dissolve into it very well. Nonetheless, Venus also rules Taurus. It’s happy there for a different reason. In Libran air, Venus is happy because of the free flowing of points, the balance of points: the fact that air will naturally undo vacua, and each point will flow to wherever it is already going to flow, absent outside interference. “It’s just going to go where it’s going to go. This is a simple lesson!” he cries, kiddingly.

“Okay!” I cry back. Is there anything else he has to show me? “No, this will be a much shorter series of visions.” I thank him and thus ends the vision.

Noon: Similar procedure.

I feel energy come up off the tablet, now the seal, and now off of the leaf of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth), and to some degree the table. The angels are bidding me to chill out. Now King Baligon bids me take his hand, extended from a cloud, and we’re in the air again.

“Let’s take each of these [air astrological signs] in turn,” he cuts right to it. “So what does Gemini do? Gemini, the twins: it is communication, it is the circulation of air and sound. This is how it is best thought of.” He makes an aside, “We may even go in reverse [zodiacal] order.”

King Baligon continues: “But it is the circulation air: it goes from one source and goes to another, and then returns back, and then back, and forth. This could be a bigger cycle, from A to B to C and ultimately to Z, and then back to A again: or A to Z and then reversing that pattern. This is the returning of the air, the spreading out of the air: the point which, again, is in an open field, but here we have the tendency of air, it can go anywhere! and so it may return to the same spot. This is air: this is how these points manifest.

“Looking at Aquarius,” King Baligon transitions, “the easiest way to think about this, obviously, is what we have right now: fixed air (i.e., air fixed by mask and PPE use), fixed ideas, and, oftentimes the reality or actualization of that idea, that which needs to be communicated, does not match the ideal, and so it is very depressing to the individual. Hence, they often just want to walk away from people,” he chuckles. I’ll note that I saw a meme of this earlier this year on AstroTwitter, which essentially was someone saying to an Aquarius, “Hey, you’re my best friend.” The friend approaches the Aquarius, who reciprocates the expression of friendship. Then, inexplicably, the Aquarius walks away. It’s like, “What?” So the closeness is one of ideas, and the air of Aquarius tends to want to just stay in one spot. So it’s not necessarily fetid air, but it could be like that, but the sign is ruled by Saturn, so you could have these stuck ideas which do not want to change. On the lighter side, it could be like a sealed capsule (like a space capsule or a submarine) of fixed air which goes into outer space or into the depths of the ocean. The air is sealed within, and the submariner or astronaut has enough time to live in that capsule–similar to the “castles in the sky” idea put forward, again, by Austin Coppock–for some time, and then come back down and report whatever there is to communicate. Such a person would do that because the goal of that (in the case of scientific submarines! and space missions) was science, which was to see what could be communicated via such means.

Finally, we have Libra. Libra is a difficult one for me, King Baligon tells me: it’s my third house, hence the house of Goddess, but Venus, the ruler of the 3rd house, is in the 9th house, the house of God. What I’m told is that at its ideal, it balances, and you see that even with someone like Stephanie Miller, whom I have listened to. She is a Libra sun in a day chart; she did have more of a team-like energy about her, circulating communication about her team, a Venusian balance of harmony (yet she maintains pointed political critiques). Generally speaking, the tone of her show is pleasant, and even if it can’t be pleasant, well, at least let’s make some jokes about it, and the angels remind me that cynical Saturn tends to have a cold and dry wit in response to the things going wrong, and is exalted in Libra.

I try to concentrate into this, and King Baligon says, “Let’s take a deeper look at Libra, which means ‘scales.’ We see this in relationships, right? This is the creative use of air: wind blowing one way here, and another way here in order for harmony. Harmony is a key signification of Libra, and what do you think of when you think of with music. It is the harmony–the collection of sounds, in such a way that the air moves. It communicates sounds that way, via sound waves. So we have communication (Gemini), the fixity of what is communicated (hence, “castles in the sky”), and, finally, we have the creative impulse of Libra, to either create harmony of the thoughts and communications of people (groups of friends, for example), or we have music itself.”

The angels ask me to concentrate on this, and actually the sense I’m getting–King Baligon, who I now see in classic medieval angelic form (with wings), he’s saying that the thing I’m seeing now is that I have completed this first round about the elements, so it will be completely finished tonight. However, because I’m more than halfway done with this round so he wants to let me know: “Yes, so the issue with getting at the square root of the circle:” (see yesterday’s post) “the problem is similar to getting at the square of the circle” (squaring the circle).

King Baligon illuminates me: “The square root of the number of degrees of the circumference [plus one for the center]”–361–“is 19; in order to square the circle, however, you need to take the square root of π (the side length of the square). You see how you need to get at the root of the circle (or the irrational transformative constant of the circle), in order to square the circle. But in order to get at the square root of that circle, you need to get at the squaring of the square (a square of side length 1 has a perimeter of 4, and squaring that length leads to a perimeter (and area) of 16, the number of elemental watchtower calls). Add this to the “mystery of the trinity” spoken of by the angel Galvah: this can be derived by multiplying a diameter of 19 times π = 59.7 ≈ 60 by rounding, the number of degrees of an equilateral triangle. Furthermore, going on to inscribe an equilateral triangle within this circle gives the triangle a side length of 9.5 * √3 = 16.45 ≈ 16 by rounding, to each of three sides (16,3,361: “the last shall be first; and the first, last“); again the same number of watchtower calls, with three remaining.

Everything I said yesterday, he’s giving me a huge clap, because I was saying everything, but now it’s clear the way that everything is lining up. He says, “You need to get that exaltation in Libra [symbolized by the squaring of the circle] in order to do so, so that all of the ideas can come together in harmony.”

I’m very pleased with all of this. I thank the angels and the Divine. The angels add: “Tonight, it’s going to be a little different, but you’re going to get the sense of the air about an individual and their aura, but you’ll also start to see into and get a preview into the actual thoughts and communications that are going on, and several things will become clear to you at once. The correspondence of the classical elements to each of the universal forces: that will be one. The correspondence of the classical elements to the usual suspects (astrology, etc.), and finally this will happen not only with an individual whom you’re encountering but also within a group dynamic. It will be a massive change.”

King Baligon is just giving me a lot of love and warm feeling right now, just so that my heart will be ready for this, so I’m expressing gratitude, but I notice a little bit of a lamprey like monster, and King Baligon says, “This is it: you’re getting into the thorns. They are not about you as opposed to you holding the thorns.” I say, “OK,” and express further gratitude.

“This is the beginning of digestion, so do not worry: you’re just being digested now for the rest of this process. The end is imminent.”

Thus ends the vision.

Sunset: Similar procedure.

I feel a whole-body buzz at the arrival of King Baligon. He notes the breath of fresh air. He says to consider “someone who has music in their soul or their heart.” Describing someone this way is to say that they have found their harmony with themselves and with the universe that they did not have before. “And so, with this: consider what it means to receive air from another, and what it means to take air from another. When we say that ‘air has been taken out of the lungs’: a freedom has been lost, an openness has been lost.” (Note: or even that one has lost one’s spirit!). “Being ‘free to fly the friendly skies’ means there is no limit to where one can go.

“Very simple expressions,” King Baligon remarks, “but they serve a point here. So, ideally, because of this competition for the same air,” (i.e., freedom within a given, otherwise-open area), “agreements must be reached. One person wants the freedom to take money from another person, but that other person says, ‘Well, I will, if…’. It has to go beyond mere ‘Let’s talk about this,’ because you begin talking about the idea of it, with Gemini, and you develop a sense of harmony that could be reached if you work together,” (as with Venus in Libra), “and then that harmony must be enforced by agreements such as with Saturn” (in Libra), “but also, these agreements are informed by what an ideal actualization of an idea may be,” (Aquarius), “and then it’s never going to live up to that, with a very strong Saturn. Or, one learns to accept [something] close enough to one’s ideal.

“So that’s what it means. So when one is providing air, one is perhaps giving the idea, or the ability, the freedom of communication to speak about things that perhaps they did not dare speak, and in speaking about something, one is allowing for the elaboration of these points. In other words, when air is compressed, or not allowed the freedom to move about,” and here King Baligon cautions that this is slightly different from Aquarian fixed air, but we will return to this idea. “This is an uncirculated air that just sits and doesn’t circulate. Consider this in relation to the heart: if the air is sitting, if this tendency of the heart to want to move about openly, in ways that speak to it, but is not able to: then suddenly it becomes constricted, and it seeks smaller and smaller avenues with which to move. It seeks to find the openness, and finding little or none, its dreams tend to die out. Its view of what is possible tends to die out. The geometry collapses, or even if it doesn’t collapse, it becomes rather dull,” (like a balloon which only expands on a fourth of its surface, unable to measure correctly to the center from the circumference).

“It doesn’t make connections among other points,” King Baligon adds, sadly, “because, though it moves, the limitation of a point that cannot reach out and make a connection with another point is problematic. So, the problem is that the relationships or connections between other points (such as those with another person or from one idea to another) are lost, or are not made [to begin with]. That’s ultimately the issue there. Similarly, with restricted air when it comes to Libra, connections are lost: this time not between ideas, necessarily but points and systems between people, or as someone’s ideas about whether they are allowed to relate and their own behavior.

“And finally,” King Baligon wraps up the air trio, “when it comes to Aquarius, when air is restricted or limited or lacking, then a person’s ability to create an idea about how things ought to be, how rules ought to be, become restricted. Those become thoughtcrime,” King Baligon concludes.

I ask whether there be anything else, and he says no, because the introduction of air is merely the reverse of all of these. Someone who has too much of this maybe gets a little too focused on the ideas of freedom, or where one can go or what one can do, and it just becomes a lot of ideas: a lot of ideas about doing something, and then never doing it, and that’s a problem, and this is where the introduction of [elemental] earth could be helpful.

King Baligon says that’s it. “Good job! No hints as far as tomorrow” (when King Bnapsen of Saturn does not line up well with the sign of Water, which means either he will have poorer dignity or the associated tablets of the next four days will follow a different pattern), but to indeed call King Bnapsen.

Once again, I’m so grateful to the angels for this, and thus ends the vision.

Gebofal, Day 31: Starting Watchtower Calls

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.

Letters of the PELE ring: The Seven Planetary Kings (Heptarchy)

(Cross-posted from a Facebook Group)

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
  • baLigon (L)-Venus
  • babalEl (E)-Mars

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.

Gebofal, Day 8

Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of TOR. Calling on King BOBOGEL as with Day 1.

I’m shown seven dots again, but the angels hint at an eighth. They show me a sphered cube, and seven dots upon that. They slice it in two, and have me look at one of the cross-sections (i.e., a squared circle), which has eight points of intersection. The angels say that it’s important to combine this septenary and octonary nature: they show me the eight dots of a cube, but in taking one away in this formation, the location and need for an eighth is obvious. “As you go through this, you’ll see that the implication for the subsequent inner sphere (following an inward-spiraling pattern), then the seven “dots” of each of the previous days make the 8th, or the start of the next pattern/spheroid, obvious. Now that you’re getting to this next spheroid within the snail shell, as it were, then the next cubed sphere is like a smaller, more intimate version of the heart to be traversed.

I see the German village again, and I see a field, and I see animals approach me, but these seem like distractions that the angels are trying to protect me from. The angels have me concentrate upon this intimate cube, and I force myself to concentrate on the cube itself, not what it will unfold into. This, the angels say, is a good insight: the temptation will be to see to try to see a pattern or an insight and all of its implications, but what’s going on right now is much more intimate. “You can see the crazy-making that this could cause, with one forever chasing one’s tail with these numbers,” and their implications to the ends of the Earth and back again.

Nonetheless, they say, the chasing the tail of with these numbers is important because it makes the circumference of the heart clear. As I concentrate about the sphered cube, there’s a tenderness in my heart chakra, and on the astral I try to slowly and gently push my finger towards that tenderness, and suggested by the black sphere. In so doing, a cartoonish horror opens up from the sphere, but I gently concentrate towards the tenderness some more.

Here is a tiny white sphere, fitting within the palm of my hand, within the larger black sphere (the latter being about four or five feet tall); they say that this white sphere, like unto a pearl, must be held within the black sphere. Recall from a prior vision that the black sphere indicates dukkha. The white sphere, then, indicates the jewel of the Om Mani Padme Hum mantra, the compassion of the Buddha(s), which arises when concentrating upon dukkha. I note a feeling at the nape of my neck, suggesting the Abyss, so I concentrate some more. This is what the taijitu (“yin-yang”) symbol within the larger symbol (see yesterday’s scrying session) represents. Again, I’m told to remember the heart and the sun, and the potential for Saturn to take you in crazy-making directions. Yet both are important, for without either the ring or the center, the circle cannot be fully understood.

I’m reminded of an egg-protection physics experiment from high school–I created a cubical wireframe that had to be dropped from the first story of the high school: fun times. At any rate, I’m reflecting on how tender the egg was, and on Dee’s egg in Theorem XVIII of the Monas Hieroglyphica. For whatever reason, he put the moon and Mercury in the “white” of the egg, and the sun, Venus, and Mars in the yolk. Here, I think Dee was having a hard time reconciling himself with the moon, though earlier he lauded it. Note that the Orphic Egg is suggested by Dee’s work here, in addition to the Aesop fable.

The point is, the egg is a tender thing (for this reason, I’d put the sun, moon, and Mercury there, but Dee was clearly ranking the planets according to speed of motion). The tenderness of the heart can be thought of here. Within a person, the yolk is like the innermost heart of a person, trying to reconcile itself with reality, trying to constantly reconcile itself with circumstance and maintain homeostasis. It’s like the heart knows, but the mind is rebelling! The mind is looking to the outside instead of to the heart.

The eggshell, its white, and its yolk are like the sanctum of the heart, with Christ as the shell, the white as the Holy Spirit, and the yolk like the Creator. The egg is within our heart, and can be highly armored. The tendency of the heart is to try to protect the egg, but it’s important to inspect and ultimately unfold, however briefly, the harsh cubical armor. I see a triplicity of cubes, of the egg, and this happening in three dimensions, so this can be thought of as a Nonary.

The angels summarize: the seven can lead to the eight, and it’s important to see both the circumference and the ultimate heart, and to reconcile the two.

The vision ends. Happy Easter.

Noon: Similar procedure.

I place my right foot & left hand on King Bobogel’s seal & Leaf 42a, respectively, and a lot of energy seems to be coming off of them. My left foot, which is unoccupied, has energy coming up off of it. I do a 7-7-14 breath. On the 14-count exhalation, it seems as if there’s some energy exhaled about me, and the angels point at the idea of taking things into one’s center and releasing it out to the circumference. For us humans, we have no idea how our release of things will interact with the world, so this is problematic, so the point is to merely allow our actions to have unintended effects and to still act, and allow the effects of our release to come at us in unexpected ways. The circumference of the sphere happens in unexpected ways.

Palaces/Hekhalot: I see a palace in the sky, and the angels affirm: yes, we’re going to start a Hekhalot working. I focus on “the center” as the angels lift me into the heavenly palaces. The angels mention that this will be “like unto,” though not exactly the same, as reaching the center of existence. The angels are previewing, once again, reaching the center (on Day 49). I look back on Earth below me, and I see a palace in the center of a palace on Earth; “the palace,” I’m told, is both things. I’m being shown that the metaphorical circumference of understanding can be roughly considered to be the edge of the known universe, but that itself is often the center of our scientific focus. So not only is the Earth the center of our focus when we protrude outwards with our minds and situate it at the center of our understanding, when focusing outwards to the edge of the known universe, we try to understand Earth comparatively, and thus put the Earth at the (comparative and metaphorical) circumference of our minds. I’m told that any contemplation implies both the metaphorical sphere and its center, but also an inversion of these. There’s a metaphorical uncollapsed wave function to ideas, which simultaneously contains the extent (circumference or sphere) of an idea and its center, and they are sort of both each other simultaneously. Everybody got that?

So now it gets even more fun: I’m seeing one palace out of each eye! The left eye sees the palace at the center of the Earth, the right eye its counterpart in Heaven. In the earthly palace, I’m seeing a churning and a rotation of fire and lava–note that this is explicitly not hell, but perhaps can be thought of Iurehoh, or “what Christ did in hell,” perhaps reflecting the current astrological influence of fiery Aries, with the sun now closing in on its exaltation degree and Venus nearly at the same. I’m told that what Christ did was liberate people from ignorance, which was an active thing. Dee was very focused on the fiery Areyan aspect of the Monas Hieroglyphica.

In my right eye, I see the heavenly palace, which is light, but muted, colors: creams and grays and pale blue. The structure of what I’m seeing is identical, but the context is totally different. This looks like playing a video game when the skin of a structure from a previous location you’ve visited has changed for the post-explosion fight or something like that. The walls and obstacles are functionally is the same, but the context is different.

I reflect on the idea of heaven being, to speak in coding terms, a “future state” counterpart to a terrestrial “current state.” It’s like these two things are overlaid with each other–we rarely want a 100% change, we usually want a slight change from where we are, and if we get it, we then plan out only minor changes. This is kind of what I’m seeing. I’m within a church or temple section of both palaces, which is at the center of the palaces. I get to the pulpit area, and get levitated up here. The issue, I’m told, is that such means very different things in the heavenly palace vs. the earthly. Earth has its molten core, but I’m told not to consider this infernal or hellish, but rather the core or exemplar of the terrestrial state. The celestial version of this is about seeing the core of all possibilities.

The heart must speak to both, I’m told. Someone must both be able to see the present-state reality for what it is (suggested by the Earth palace), and yet at the same time see all possibilities within that, or parallel to that, and that will show the Tao. This is the yin and the yang principles simultaneously, I’m told. Now they mention that the rainbow body is like imagining the light principle of heaven being scattered about appropriately, as with a clear prism–but doing so appropriately, intelligently, and of the heart. I’m told by King BOBOGEL that the reason I’m really liking this is due to my chart ruler being the sun, and its ruler being in Aries.

Torch: The angels show me a torch: I need to keep my hand about the torch, which continues to light up the heart, even as everything comes at me to disrupt it or disturb it or make it seem as if it’s gone out as I approach the Abyss once more. It’s not gone out. It’s like the torch of the Statue of Liberty (problematic symbolism given current events aside) which is held by a copper figure, with the copper of Venus holding the fiery flame of the sun and of Mars.

The Lotus and the Pearl: I see now an obsidian disc (I used to have one, but gave it away). It turns into a set-sized horizontal leaves of a lotus flower, but obsidian. Each successive set of leaves is progressively lighter, and at the center, once again, is the white sphere or jewel/pearl of Om Mani Padme Hum. I’m offered it, but, I’m told, this is what I need to identify with and eventually become (the light side of “Sylvester and the Magic Pebble“).

The vision ends.

Sunset: Similar procedure, with both hands in the prayer position on the leaf, which will by my standard evening practice.

I’m shown 8 dots, which are on a sphered cube, but the cube turns into a tesseract which is “hypersphered.” They tell me that I don’t need to count the points of contact, but they’re advising me that the heart of compassion will hit levels that my mind is unaware of. There must be a divide between the mind and the heart. The heart will have a preternatural awareness that the mind simply cannot know. It’s not upon me to understand completely, but to simply bear witness, weigh in the heart, and to make my way with the heart as my guide, following the wu wei, “waying the way which cannot be wayed.”

The angels draw my attention to the very core of this, a tiny point. This can be considered the center of each human heart center, and that normally, we would consider networks to be made up of lines, but of the heart, we speak of curves, which oftentimes go around something quite large. This could be people separated not only by space and time, but also by ideology, religion, prejudice, or the like. These curves, they show me, are like unto a dragon. This dragon which connects people are like the light side of the dragon concept, such as Falkor from The Neverending Story, for people go to great lengths to connect at the heart level.

I’m shown a picture of myself as a boy, and a dragon about my heart. Traumatic events can cause dragons to encircle the heart, so it’s not so much armor but a dragon, like with Phanes about the egg in the Orphic mysteries.

If I search into the heart of the dragon, the dragon itself starts looking like a snake, and it’s like someone who begins to consume or identify with the heart of the snake itself. They become lost, either permanently (as far as this life is concerned) or temporarily. It’s kind of a primal thing, but yet there’s still some resonance with the heart of a person and the heart of a snake; one can slingshot about this condition, much as I did, they remind me.

I’m feeling more warm from the front of Leaf 42; I’m being told that now that there are no additional letters either on or facing this page (i.e., every other letter is missing), I’m going to notice more of a ZAX/Abyssal kind of energy. I’m reminded to bring the torch and light to me. It may seem worse, as I go along, but to maintain this heart of compassion and my faith. The heart of compassion is even within the heart of a snake, they tell me.

Gebofal, Day 7

Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of NIA. I call BNAPSEN via the prayer as listed in Stenwick’s Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy, but not using the Enochian calls.

The angels show me seven points, and of course today, being the last day of the first week, their meaning is described: the points are placed along the outermost ring of a spiral. The remaining 42 days work their way through to the center of the spiral. On Day 49, the last portion of that spiral can be connected via three points of a line segment (for you can further subdivide the spiral to account for the same call three times on each of the days of the ritual, which is to say 147 points in all). This line segment connecting the final stretch of the spiral can be thought to start at the reading of Leaf 1b, ending at the reading of Leaf 1a, and the finally, on the evening of the final day, reading of the leaf in its entirety, at which point the center is made manifest. Note: this reduces the role of error which one would surely have by attempting to find the center by starting at the outside of such a spiral.

King BNAPSEN mentions that blogging about this is how a particular method of gebofal can be handed down, thus fulfilling his Binah/Saturn role. A cooperative effort to publish copies of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh with this method is suggested to me.

I point the wand at Leaf 43b; King BNAPSEN and Governors Orcanir, Chialps, and Soageel are unfolding the structure of what is going on as I scry during the gebofal ritual, which is helpful and appeals to my luminary-trined Saturn. I’m given more information and meaning now that I’ve hit Day 7, the end of the first seven days. I ask explicitly about the symbol; now that I’ve been reconciled with all of the planets, the symbol can now come forth. They show a spiral beginning at the outside of the four-pointed star, and to have the point at which the square (which is suggested by the diamond) would be circled (i.e., a circle overlapping the square have the same area), have that be at the 3.5 mark of a seven-“circle” spiral; to help visualize it, I’ve shown it below:

The same symbol from yesterday, this time with a spiral of seven revolutions; the point of revolution 3.5 is shown in red, indicating the circumference of a circle which would have the same area as the square suggested by the four points of the diamond. Decorative lotus leaves could be added along spiral.

I see rays coming down about me, and they relate to the rainbow body. They say that my mind and heart is relating better to the subtle body and therefore the rainbow body can be emerge and be more realized over time.

Noon: Similar procedure.

I comment on noticing the Leaf 43a is the first of these early leaves with its own corner and row that doesn’t have every other letter missing. I’ve filled in a few of these based on my intuition (but don’t claim them to be the be-all, end-all). I call on the angelic king BNAPSEN & governors Orcanir, Chialps, and Soageel, and they mention that there’s a parallel to ZAX and the Abyss, as well as to Ain (of the world of Adam Qadmon), which is the reverse of the spelling of this Aethyr. This, they mention, is the preview of Leaf 1 on day 49. There’s more depth to these Aethyrs than one would otherwise give credit for, so what I’m doing now is following the septenary spiral inward to its logical conclusion.

The angels instruct me to place the face of the PELE ring on the front of Leaf 43, which the book is opened to. To do so, I put the PELE ring on a finger on my left hand so that it can continue to touch the book. However, I naturally place the back of the hand upon the leaf rather than turning the ring around so that my palm remains on it. They joke about the trope of sci-fi shows to somehow “reverse the polarities” to get the reverse effect of a problem they’re trying to solve via the normal polarization. Still, there’s something to be said about this (and typing this up, I’m thinking the message that things can’t be “unchanged,” but rather changed again in an attempt to honor the previous arrangement). They are “reversing the polarities” (i.e., King BNAPSEN is reversing some of what King BYNEPOR Thursday–note that astrologically, Saturn is the great malefic while Jupiter is the great Benefic; Saturn is only half of Jupiter’s mass and so can’t undo all of it). The angels tell me to get used to this push-pull, and that this will happen several times, and why these two planets are spaced a day apart on the days of the week. I’m told that this is the nature of what happens when one is placed at the center, and why the meaning of visions can seem to reverse or change meaning. A little vibration or wave can be completely disorienting, and things can suddenly seem upside down or reversed with only a little movement.

I can see a 3D funnel-like spiral come up from the palm of my hand. They begin by showing me a 2D version of the spiral (such as that above). Then they have me look at the funnel as instead a spherical version, which reminds me of a a tennis ball which a dog has chewed, causing it to come undone at the seams, which can be looped around itself. If the inner part of the seam were smaller, then it can be looped around itself in a spiral-like manner. Then the angels tell me to contemplate this in 4D space; they hint that the geometry I will see may be too much to interpret directly.

King BNAPSEN mention that the allergy drugs I’m on have helped to make the restructuring of my subtle body easier. I see a lot of waves; this is like when an ultrasound loosens up knots in a physical body. “Behold his wonders.”

The vision ends.

Inter-scrying commentary: So, believe it or not, I’ve not read the entirety of Dee’s Monas Hieroglyphica until just now, though I’ve seen the commentary offered by Dr. Justin Sledge and Jason Louv. I also already knew that symbol by heart. A few points of contrast between his symbol and mine:

First, the spiral: his spiral naturally closes, mine remains open.

Second, is the symbol of the Tao is central, while the cross is separated from the symbol of the elements (as indicated by the divided diamond). The cross carries with it the meaning of the unfolded cube, which is the unfolding of the heart.

Third, the elements are placed along the outside rather than central to the symbol. This is important to need to balance oneself among the four elements.

Sunset: Similar procedure.

Once again, I’m shown the seven dots. The angels show me a more basic binary version of his Theorem:

The angels are saying that this is a more basic and binary form of the Monas Hieroglyphica: 20, 21, and 22, in which can be seen the force and power of Ain, as well as the natural progression leading to a 2 and a 3 (20 + 21 = 1 + 2 = 3). They show me this binary and ask me rhetorically to merge this concept with getting to a total of seven (by adding all the dots); the angels note that one gets from 7 to 15 to 31 to 63, each of which is its own form of sacredness (7 being the number of the classical astrological planets, fifteen being the sum of any Saturn square, 31 being the name of El in Gematria, and 63 being 7*9, with 9 having its special importance to Enochian as I’ve gone over in previous posts). 127 is prime and (credit to Wikipedia; float them some money, will you?) is the smallest prime that can be written as the sum of multiple consecutive odd-numbered primes: 127 is the smallest prime that can be written as the sum of the first two or more odd primes: 127 = 3 + 5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29, and is the sum of the sums of the divisors of the first 12 positive integers (78 is the sum of those numbers, so 11 (for the 1’s for the first 12 numbers, except 1 itself, which is already included for the number 1) then add 2, 2, 3, 2, 4, 3, 2, 5, 2, 3, 4, 6). The angels kind of want me to stop here. The angels want me to stop here as we’ve reached 27 – 1.

Taking this splitting to its normal extension, they say consider when 7 & 15 meet up opposite each other: 4 four match each other, the other four of the final row of 8 do not. If 7 and 31 meet, 4 would match each other, 12 would not. If 7 and 63 met, then 4 would meet and 28 would not. They say it has something to do with what is left over, and something about exponents. However, I’m not following a lot of the logic. I call on King BNAPSEN and Governors Orcanir, Chialps, and Soageel again. They have me pause to center and say they’re going to show me. 128 + 7 sums to 135, which is 9*15; I’m still confused because they’re switching what gets added up. They say “hold on,” and they comment that this is 27 + 7. Then they have me add 7 + 28 = 263, which is Resh, the solar letter, plus 63, which is the number already have from 26 – 1. They mention 519 but then they stop. They say to add one less than the power of 2 to a different power of 2 which is larger. They say that 519 will be telling to me. They call this my homework.

The angels have me wait. King BNAPSEN shows me the letter V which can be oriented as a 7 in Arabic numerals but in Roman numerals is 5, so together this is 12. He shows me the sun being exalted astrologically being a symbol of an exalted heart. The angels tell me to set my wand on the Holy Table and to put both hands together in prayer on both sides of the leaf, which creates an interesting energy.

I do a quick prayer asking for mercy. The angels show me a lotus flower, and show me a moon within it (note that this combination is also symbolic of the Buddhist bodhisattva deity Tara). The angels ask me to change the foot on which the BNAPSEN seal is located, so I do, crossing my legs to do so, such that my posture is reminiscent of the posture of certain martyrs and, I note, to The Hanged Man in the Tarot. I concentrate on these two images together, The Hanged Man and the lotus flower with the moon inside of it. He’s now inverted, so upright and his hair floats upward. The angels tell me to accustom myself to inversion.

The Hanged Man rising up up out of the lotus reminds me of the mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, the lotus-jewel. The Hanged Man being number XII of the major arcana adds significance, and of course this is actually the 13th trump (since the numbering of the major arcana starts with 0, The Fool). This gives significance to the Watchtowers, which are 12×13 in dimension, thus coming to 156 letters per watchtower. I’m looking into the heart of this inverted hanged man, and the angels tell me that if I take his foot to instead be standing upon the moon as it goes through simple harmonic motion. This motion could also be seen as him going through a circular motion, front-to-back and up-and-down, creating a circle around his heart about the y- and z-axes.

They make additional analogies; if the hanged man bows before something greater than himself, that’s a certain kind of eclipse, but stretching back in ecstasy is a different kind of eclipse. There’s something about aligning with the Saturn cycle.

Now I’m atop a cross which is in outer space, and which is flying like a spaceship. At times it seems like a TOPY cross, but there seem to be fractal extensions of 2/3 size which emerge from the cross, forming a pattern. I see myself lying on the cross, with my heart at the center, causing it to fan out in a fractal pattern. I’m told that networks such as these need to meet other people so that they can grow again and not peter out at the natural upper limit of the fractal pattern. It’s like I’m traveling through space, and the cross becomes many of the same size, forming a simple bridge down to a planet. I touch the planet which is like unto Mars, but touching it causes a bit of blue to appear, terraforming it. I don’t know what this is, but on reflection, it’s a symbol of following the perpendicular in order to meet the center, or heart (note the six-rayed star in the LRP is made up of red and blue triangles); at the time, one side of the leaf I’m holding was saying “this is obvious,” the other side of the leaf was saying, “it’s not obvious at all.

They’re showing me the sun and the moon crossing each other, which of course follows this symbolism. I note that there’s an upcoming lunar eclipse, which I mistakenly think is in June (it’s in May), but they’re really trying to point me towards it. I don’t know what this is, but it’s important to them, and I’m grateful for the message.

Several times now it’s felt like the vision will stop, but it resumes. Now I see a diamond shape, a rhombus, which has a size of a diagonal that is three times the size of the other. There’s an additional correction to the symbol, which now has three-dimensionality; the main one is shown atop and rotating above a self-similar square pyramid:

Now I recall a symbol on the astral appearing like this appearing after I scried the Aethyr of ZIP about a year and a half ago. It was made of gold and I was able to use it to help me decipher tables I received about this time. It was three-dimensional and octahedral; the angels show me another one today, this time even thinner:

“You have a square (from the original symbol), but held at this angle [in three dimensions], it has to look like a rhombus.” Ultimately they say that the fusion of the old symbol with this new one is a means to perfect it. There’s a flexibility with the height of the octahedron, which I’d already had from the ZIP symbol. The angels emphasize the self-similarity.

The symbol floating above the mountain is similar to it floating above itself in the pyramid form, and there’s significance about it but I’m not to know about it. “Think of it like Re atop mounting, but because it’s merely reflecting Re, it’s like unto the moon.” The symbol is reflecting light onto the ground below, and I’m thinking of Egypt. It’s lighting up the ground below, and they’re saying that it could reflect any place on Earth. “The light will hit a central point,” and the energy will be like a thermal solar tower. I’m unclear, but the angels say that this is okay: this is laying the structure for what will happen at the end of this ritual.

There’s something about a dog, but the vision ends.
