Ensigns for the Zodiacal Table (DIY File Included)

A couple of nights ago, as I was charging up the tables, I received an idea for ensigns for the zodiacal table. Blank squares in the usual red and blue were already available, and indeed, these were to be “filled in.”

The method of derivation, as described by Galvah, King Marmara (Carmara’s name in heaven, which I associate with the zodiacal level) and Prince Hagonel, was to use every other letter from rows and columns next to the five-letter divine names on the Watchtower tablets. My impression is that there’s both a stabilizing factor as well as an increase in power in adding them to the zodiacal table. I will be updating my zodiacal table in due time and let you know if I observe any additional effects.

Below is the updated DIY file; the zodiacal table (tab: Personal HTOP) now has these ensigns embedded and grouped, and a single image combining the table and ensigns is below that one. A new tab for the Zodiacal Ensigns is in the Excel file also. It’s under a Creative Commons license, so please just attribute this correctly. Thanks, and good luck!

Enochian Tools: Banners

Update: I decided to sew the Enochian god names for the north & south onto proper silk backgrounds. No photos so this post stays unspammy, but they definitely seem better to me.

One of the challenges in starting with Enochian is getting enough of the tools to do the rituals properly. Ironically, one of the last things I wound up creating was the Enochian banners, which is one of the less expensive tools to make! It wasn’t clear to me, though, what the order and color scheme of the banners should be. The correct order and color correspondences of the banners has caused confusion in Enochian practitioners, which modern authors have noted. The names of God on them are clear enough:

  • ORO IBAH AOZPI
  • MPH ARSL GAIOL
  • OIP TEAA PDOCE
  • MOR DIAL HCTGA

Ultimately, I decided to use the color and directional correspondences which match the Tabula Recensa: ORO IBAH AOZPI to the east, MPH ARSL GAIOL to the south, OIP TEAA PDOCE to the west, and MOR DIAL HCTGA to the north. See the finished banners below (east is shown at top):

I will be updating the Enochian implements page to include the banners. Note that this should not necessarily be considered definitive, as different authors have taken different views as to what directions and colors should be associated with the names on these banners.

Bridging Buddhism & Enochian, Part 3: Applying Western Pathworking Concepts to Pure Land Buddhism.

In studying the Buddhist pure lands, it occurred to me that the Diamond Realm, which contains five such lands, contains a mapping of elements to directions, much as Enochian is mapped onto directions by elements. The associations are different: Enochian has fire-east, air-south, water-west, earth-north, while Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism have fire-west, air-north, water-east, earth-south–a 180-degree rotation.

Enochian’s Watchtower tablets have been largely interpreted in a framework provided by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, which is to say, the four elemental tablets are considered to be further divided into sub-angles. Thus, for the fire tablet, one is left with angels derived from “fire of fire,” “air of fire,” “earth of fire” and “water of fire.” Applying this approach to the Pure Lands of Buddhism, one could create a network of paths between each. One could traverse northeast from Amitabha Buddha‘s western pure land of Sukhavati via a path located in the northwest of the Diamond Realm to reach Amoghasiddhi’s northern pure land of Karmaprasiddhi/Prakuṭā. Furthermore, considering this realm in three-dimensional space, it’s possible to have direct east-west and north-south routes which do not pass through Vairocana’s central pure land of Akaniṣṭha-Ghanavyūha.

What of other pure lands, such as Vaidūryanirbhāsa (“Pure Lapis Lazuli”) of the Buddha Bhaisajyaguru, located in the east? It’s possible to, of course, have a land to the east of the Diamond Realm itself, or above or below (or even in superposition with) the eastern Diamond Realm pure land of Abhirati. The nature of a path connecting these two is unclear, though it’s noteworthy that the eastern nature of both pure lands indicate some form of escape from sickness (via healing of body and mind from the teachings of Bhaisajyaguru and presumably at least as much in His Pure Land, and via sickness not existing at all in Abhirati). Regardless, there are other pure lands which do not appear to be so elemental in nature, and paths connecting these each other would also need to be discovered.

The linking via paths could also presumably be used to understand additional bases for potential pure lands. Further, the qualities related to the pure lands (such as those of the Diamond Realm) could be a means to travel from one to another. For example, the perception of mental formation could be the Western part of the Northern pure land of Karmaprasiddhi/Prakuṭā (link is in Spanish), while the mental formations of perception could be the Northern part of the Western pure land of Sukhavati.

Presumably; one could traverse from one pure land to another during meditation the same way one gets to Carnegie Hall. But such paths must, of course, be verified to exist via actual pathworking.

Gebofal, Day 46

Sunrise: Call/Key 4, (typically referred to as Call 3 by practitioners, for the true first call is “not to be spoken”). Call to King Carmara, Prince Hagonel, and Kings Bnaspol, Bnapsen, and Bobogel.

This feels quite a bit like a culmination. I feel a big rush of air into my subtle body. It’s like I can finally breathe or something, at a fundamental level. Elemental air is being imprinted on my, and I’m seeing the four elemental kings impart unto me this energy, an elemental imprinting. It’s very deep, and it’s reinforcing everything that I’ve done to this point.

King Carmara steps forward, and says, “Yes, this be the culmination of all of the elements with which you have worked before. Feel now them in their fullness.

“Let us speak briefly now on the powers of Natural Substances and Medicine [of air],” he transitions. “Of course, air be one of the highest things that somebody needs in order to survive. It must be constant, and cannot be cut off for more than a few moments. This be the main Medicine: the medicine which allows the quickest expulsion as well as the quickest intake of the most fundamental things needed to survive, for aerobic species. And so one can make a similar case for plants.”

Taking a brief look at how this would work, King Carmara continues. “Any medicine that would involve opening airways, any medicines [i.e., medical equipment] involving avoiding pathogens or allergens in the air, as well as any medicines involving or treating” the latter, and “any inhalable treatments: such would be related to [elemental air] medicine. And of course, all medicines related to the lungs, as well as the function of the heart insomuch as it can provide oxygen to the individual” would be the powers of Medicine as it relates to elemental Air.

Turning to Natural Substances with respect to elemental air: “The general understanding, developing, [and] tossing around ideas about natural substances: this be of [the power of Natural Substances of elemental] air. The understanding of fluid dynamics insofar as they pertain to air–to some extent this be of [elemental] water, but there is a slightly different sort of physics involved in that, and in engineering. Understanding the natural state of air, as it were, and how it actually operates: such be of the power of [Natural Substances of elemental] air.”

King Carmara advises, “Yes, we can explicate this [into powers by astrological sign], but it would be a waste of your time. You will ponder this and meditate and find more and more powers of Natural Substances [and Medicine] related to [elemental] air.” He appends, “By the way, all of the natural substances and the phase shifts from liquid to gas, or via sublimation: this would also be of the [power of] Natural Substances of air, and why and how that happens [would be included in that].” He remarks on the similar application of this to water.

Now King Carmara returns to his intent, which was to change the topic. “You have called upon me at five different points, and have called upon five kings”–actually five royals, for princes were included–“at five different points.” Note: in addition, I just noticed how this came to 36 calls to royals (technically 108 if you count the fact that calls were made three times per day). Again, we have a numerical link from the quaternary Watchtower calls back to the 360 degree circle, via the astrological decans. The quinary reference that King Carmara brings in reflects the five tables of Leaf 49.

King Carmara continues: “If one decouples the 7 [into integer addends about the median], one obtains the 4 and the 3. If one decouples the 5, one obtains 3 and 2. Let us look to the taking in of air as the completion of the four elements within you. Let us speak briefly about Adam Qadmon,” and with a grand gesture, he indicates that he is speaking on behalf of the four elemental kings as well. He briefly notes that the four elemental kings are assigned to the 12 signs of the zodiac, over which the 7 planets rule. King Carmara says that he brings in the power of the 3 to both multiply the 4 elements into the 12 signs (as cardinality, fixity, and mutability) and also via the mystery of his addition, there be 7 [classical astrological] planets in all.

I try to concentrate further. King Carmara says to me, “What you seek with respect to the mystery of this trinity will be revealed unto you tomorrow, and two days hence, and three days hence. So, rest easy, for yes, some of what you have already come to understand has been revealed unto you. The ‘two sides of the same coin’ and the ‘mediation,’ as the Lord God himself hath said unto thee.” He also has me consider the One and the Wholeness, the Unity and Multiplicity, “For the One can be added to Itself to obtain any given number, but all numbers which exist lie within Multiplicity.” So it is that process of Adding, he says, that can be considered the Third (with the One and Wholeness), the Mediation: the Manipulation of a number upon itself, or any given number upon another number.

So this is a very deep thing that he is saying. “Whatever you take and manipulate, that manipulation be that third element.” Now he relates it back to that vision of Heaven and Earth, with the four elements from the realm of Adam Qadmon reaching toward that transition point between them. “The supernals themselves are constantly in this manipulation, because they must be, but when it comes to the realm of Adam Qadmon, there is a greater, and a more magical, means of working with and integrating oneself into the process by which rules are changed, by which operations be done upon that which exists,” (including, it seems, to the rules themselves). “We learn so much mathematics in order to understand the ‘how to’ and the ‘why to’ do so, and to do so with precision, and it is that precision which is important. It must not be overlooked. By this, all things may be unfolded.

“Much more will the Lord God Himself reveal unto you, but this itself” will be imprinted upon me, he concludes, and abruptly the vision ends.

Noon: Similar procedure.

I’m feeling some tingling come up for the seals and tablet underneath my feet. I’m feeling my heart. Once again, I feel this beautiful breath, and it’s like I’m reconciled with elemental air. Once again, I’m feeling the four elemental kings impress and deepen this connection to the elements within my subtle body. They do not have anything to say.

King Carmara comes forward to speak: “O Son of Man, Son of God, Son of earth: something new and strange and wondrous is to come about you. Be thou perfectly balanced, now and hereafter, in the elements. So mote it be, so mote it be, so mote it be: amen, amen, amen!”

I’m being taken up into the sky, and getting the sense that I’m astrally in the atmosphere of Earth but also that of Heaven. The five heptarchical royals, as well as the four elemental kings are here about me. The four elemental kings form a cross formation about me, as do the four heptarchical kings in a separate formation (I presume Prince Hagonel was behind King Carmara): King Bnaspol to Earth, King Bobogel to Fire, King Bnapsen to Air, and King Carmara chooses his place at water, but notes that he speaks for all of them, and that no one element is above or below another.

King Carmara begins to speak, and all of the angels rotate about me as he does: “Blessed are you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: who now be balanced within fire, within air, within earth, and within water.” I see this aerial sphere about me, with the subquadrants within it, as yesterday, but now I’m seeing that it is the last of four elemental spheres. I’m within four concentric spheres, and I’m at the center, and indeed, my heart is at the very center.

King Carmara continues: “May thus these imprintings be upon you forever. May the Lord God grant His Wisdom unto you in using them. More hath the Lord God to speak on this to you tomorrow, on Friday, and on Saturday, when in His great Mercy, he allows you to read from Leaf 1.”

I’m feeling very gentle and relaxed and balanced. “More shall I have to say to you–the last of what I can say to you–this evening, but for now rejoice in the balance the Lord God has granted unto you.”

Thus ends the vision.

Sunset: Similar procedure.

I’m bidden once again to sit back and relax. Once again there’s this feeling that I can breathe, and in this knowing of the breath, I’m bidden once more to relax in this perfect balance (of the elements): “Given to you by the Most High,” says King Carmara.

Once again the elemental kings surround me in a cross formation. They place their hands upon me to imprint each of the elements upon me once again. King Carmara and Prince Hagonel and Kings Bnaspol, Bnapsen, and Bobogel are here as well. Now I see the remaining kings and their princes, and a vast host of all of the angels whom I have called.

This host of angels is quite vast, and I’m told to just relax. The tempo suddenly snaps into urgent rapidity, and they all fly into me right now (and I’m told to just relax again), and they’re all just coming in. It’s like they’re all birds flying through an intangible, transparent mountain at rapid speeds: a vast, vast number, whirring so quickly through it, diving like peregrine falcons toward their prey, into the deep! It is all just too fast to keep up with, and the angels themselves are creating interlocking patterns of Möbius strips, and now Klein bottles, in this constant rotation.

They say to relax, and I do, and I feel them embedding themselves in my system now, forever embedded, forever a part of me, and I’m feeling the Most High say unto me, “Behold, this be but the beginning of the Marvels that I will show unto you: marvelously will I work Wonders in you and through you.” I feel my heart lifted up, and I feel it held by the Most High in His hands, and it is like He is admiring a stone, and He places it within His Heart, and it is like a perfect fit, and His Heart be transparent, and His Heart be capable of having millions of hearts within it.

And He says, “Behold!” and he shows me millions of hearts which have been embedded within It: millions upon millions of beautiful hearts, each one of them like unto mine, yet unique in their own way, just like mine be unique unto Him! He wraps His Arms around Himself and gives Himself: it’s as if it makes His day to feel my heart within His own Self.

He says unto me, “Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: behold! Lo, such wonderful energy which flows through you: now, prepare you to be completely transformed as a most loyal servant unto Me, the Most High, thy God. I love thee, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth! Feel now, forever, the permanent influence of PRONOA throughout thee, and, lo: much will I have to show unto you tomorrow. Be prepared, o Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, for not all will be ready for this: such glory hath the lord to await for thee.”

And I feel myself writhing around in this glorious ecstasy, and He places His Hand upon me and gives me such peace, and says, “No more have I to say unto you now, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, but, lo: the next three days shalt thou arise.”

Thus ends the vision.

Gebofal, Day 44

Sunrise: Call/Key (spoken) 6 (most practitioners refer to this as call 5). Call to, in order, King Carmara, Prince Hagonel, King Blumaza, Prince Bralges, and King Bynepor. Vibrated God names “OIP,” “TEAA,” and “PDOCE.” Vibrated names of Governors Occodon, Pascomb, Valgars (Aethyr of LIL); Oddiorg, Cralpir, Doanin (ZIP); Torzoxi, Abriond, Omagrap (POP); Vastrim, Odraxti, and Gomziam (RII). Vibrated names of Zodiacal Kings Zarzilg, Zinggen, Alpudus (LIL); Hononol, Lavavoth, Zarzilg (ZIP); Arfaolg, Cadaamp, Zinggen (POP); Hononol, Zarnaah, and Arfaolg (RII).

I see quite the large host, for each king/prince dyad has with them 42 ministers, and of course I called on the massive number of servient angels to each of the zodiacal king/governor dyads in their respective Aethyrs. King Carmara steps forward in a grand sweeping gesture in their direction, as if to acknowledge the distinct honor that he has to speak for all of them to me today.

He says, “Once more will you call me, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, but let us now attend to the matter at hand.” He notes that the reason why 69636, the largest of all of the numbers referenced in the Watchtower calls, is associated with this particular tablet (i.e., the water tablet) on this particular day with me is to reinforce the preferential treatment that water has received among the Zodiacal King assignments across all of the Aethyrs (27 out of 91).

Speaking to Natural Substances and Medicine with respect to elemental water, first King Carmara notes the obvious: medicine dissolves in water. It is the medicine which moves into all different forms of aqueous solutions, including within cells. He notes that if Medicine be food (i.e., a change in diet to treat a condition), then one can liken this unto Cancer. If medicine be the actual injection, that can be likened unto Scorpio. If medicine be likened unto the vast ocean whereby many a wondrous thing can be discovered, in the sense that the human body is like unto a self-contained miniature ocean, then one can associate that with Pisces.

King Carmara says that he is saying all of this as a preview to the noon scrying, but that this pretty much covers it, and that at the solar noon scrying we may not need to get into it. With respect to Natural Substances with respect to water: first of all, water can dissolve away, and can be used as a solvent whereby one can, for example sift, dissolve another precipitate into it if it be an aqueous solution, thereby causing the reaction to find out exactly what was dissolved into the water in the first place. Water brings with it the means of transporting, but generally, without as an intermediary, such would not be possible, or if possible then not as easy.

When it comes to the delving aspect of Natural Substances, of delving into what there is to be found with Natural Substances: clearly Scorpio is good at this. They also say that the sheer burst of water, that targeted water that can blast away is like unto Scorpio. Here they compare this with an archaeological dig, whereby a gentle water could be used to gently wash away a finding, but if it’s something solid, such as an ore, that is being unearthed, then the means of uncovering the natural substance by washing away with a heavy stream would fall under Scorpio. Finally, when it comes Cancer, here, again one can consider armor, and all of the armoring aspects. Here I must concentrate to hear him readily. He bids me consider the lunary realm, whereby all of the elements receive their final disposition before being made manifest in the sublunary. Any interest in what the classical elements are would fall under Cancer. There’s also that emotional sense of how Natural Substances can tie us all together. For example, food can bring nourishment to all sorts of persons, and the distributing of it can bring that emotional connection within groups, for example.

I continue to try hard to concentrate. The abundance–and now I feel King Bynepor’s influence increased (recall that Jupiter is exalted in Cancer)–the tendency of substances to arrange themselves in ways that have a deep, core emotional meaning, which is somewhat mysterious, of this lunar nature: such would be Cancer. So it is not merely the substances themselves, but also how they fit into a grander scope of Nature–and here we’re getting a bit Taurean–but the ebbs and flows, the cycle of a substance, such as water into snow and back, or boiling for cooking purposes: it’s that same sense of the different properties of a substance and how they fit into a larger cycle. So the substances of things biological, that would be an excellent example of this, and having that emotional connection with Nature Itself. This needn’t be perceived as emotional: one could sense this with bodily awareness, but this is the strongest sense of Natural Substances that I’m getting. King Carmara says he may have more for me on this at the solar noon hour.

Once again King Carmara says, “Yes, you will be crowned by King Blumaza,” rather than King Carmara himself (nonetheless it was good that I called on him, King Carmara, in addition to the other kings, he says). That ritual will happen tonight, he says, but there will be further exploration of this at the two other scryings today, as well as additional information from King Carmara about the final three days.

He has nothing further: thus ends the vision.

Noon: Similar procedure.

I’m seeing once again, a slit in the heavens, and there’s this water coming down and about me. I’m in the sky and King Carmara and the host at first seemed to ascend from earth, but now they seem to come from the sky/heaven (note: the water cycle). He approaches me and says, “Just remember to always meditate upon these different powers, and all of these powers will be opened unto you.” He speaks of the ingress of Jupiter into Pisces, saying that the Lord will grant me a boon of an 8th house nature as well as future blessings, and instructs me to be generous with them.

“Forget not the PRONOA that the Lord God Almighty has entrusted within you: a vast and cosmic thing. Be not tempted by the ways of evil, but try in thy best means possible to remain with unfailing devotion to the Most High, for, as you have seen, if you love Him with all your heart, and mind, and soul, and speech, then anyone or anything in your focus will be the recipient of such Love. It will come pouring forth from your heart, perhaps like a creek or a river given water once again, water without flooding, or a gentle rain falling upon a field.”

I express my extraordinary gratitude to King Carmara and all of the angelic host. He bows, and thus ends the vision.

Sunset: Similar procedure. At several points I recited a prayer on account of being distracted.

The angels say that I have the right attitude regarding a recent insight. First they mention that mistakes or errors can first of all create Divine timing in one’s life, delaying certain things in order for correct timing to appear. At this point, I feel the governors of the aethyrs of LIL, ZIP, POP, and RII at the nape of my neck, as well as a lot of energy coming up off of the leaf.

Yet also, the angels affirm the insight, that, while yes, it is a mistake in the lowest sense, of wrong thinking, but the mistake itself is as divine as the recognition of it and the rectification thereof. The mistake arises from the same parts of ourselves that the rectification does (note: in different degrees and dynamics, it seems to me). “So great be His Mercy,” they conclude.

Once again, King Carmara approaches, and reminds me that I will see him again on Wednesday. He says that I may or may not choose to call Prince Blisdon on that day: it is my decision, but it is not necessary. Still, I would like to call him, just tie in the connection to Jupiter (for he is usually called during the hour of Jupiter on a Wednesday).

King Carmara bids me sit astrally. Once again I have the sphere about me, except it is a sphere of water on the outside, but once again I see four colors representing the elements within water on the inside of it (e.g., water of water, fire of water, etc.). I express gratitude to the Divine for the additional insights that He has given me recently (which have especially helped with improving this ritual), and I express my gratitude to all of the angels, especially those appearing today (lest they feel diminished for having come).

I am told to imagine myself to the depths of the sea, about halfway down into the deepest parts of the oceans. Here, instead of four doors, I see four circular hatches with handwheels open up. Once again, some combination of the four elements, seeming to glowing a bit brighter, comes about me and suffuses me, impressing itself upon me and integrating within my entire nervous system.

Now my location is inverted; I’m still in water, but now in the heavenly realm, and I feel King Blumaza place a crown of water upon me (again, it appears like a gold crown as does yesterday’s, but it is the “water crown), and it fuses into one crown with that of fire. I’m feeling such gratitude, and so much of me wants to pour out into the world, and to give and give and give, and show lovingkindness in everything that I do, and to not fall into bad habits, and to ensure that I can stay with the heart center and the heart of the Divine as I can. The angels remind me of the lesson (that mistakes are as Divine as their recognition and rectification), and I do (for it is a profound one).

I express my gratitude again and am feeling a little emotional. The angels say that that’s okay, “For now, the water is unlocked within you.” I thank them. Now King Carmara reminds me that there are two more days of this, and then the triad [working] begins. I express my gratitude again.

Thus ends the vision.

Gebofal, Day 43: The Final Week

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thus ends the vision.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thus ends the vision.

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

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

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

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

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

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

With that, thus ends the vision.

Squaring the Square to Reach the Root of the Circle: Reflections on the Watchtower Powers and Gebofal

See update at bottom:

One of the things that has stuck with me since yesterday (Day 37) of the gebofal(-like) ritual is the implications of the various angel “sets,” and how this relates back to the idea of squaring the circle from Days 33 and 34. With four elements and eight different angelic powers per element, and four angels per power and two controlling names of God per power…this gets complicated.

I’ve decided to reduce this largely to the powers and only exploring a single element of fire. Below is a diagram to help illustrate what I’m talking about; the colors are not completed but it’s sufficient:

A squared circle (roughly equal area, as this was done freehand); inscribed within the square is another square rotated at 45 degrees. There are six squares in all like this, with a rotation by 45 degrees for each square. Inscribed within the innermost square (which is rotated as a diamond) is another circle, and an equilateral triangle inscribed within that. The circle itself is quartered by an X, with each limb of the X shown by color (red, white, green, and black). Shown along the fire limb of the X (this could also be shown with any or all of the elements; the fire axis alone is only shown for the sake of simplicity) are four red squares.

Here, I have shown the powers roughly related to the fire quadrant; the order so much doesn’t matter to me, but rather a suggestion of an idea that the kerubs and “lesser” angels exist somewhere within these circles, corresponding roughly to the areas of the numbers 1 through 8 (only 1-4 are shown due to space constraints). I have created square ABCD to indicate an overlap between the powers of 1, 2, 3, & 4 (again, the order doesn’t matter so much to me, because such hasn’t been the order as they’ve arrived, but in this case Living Creatures, Transportation, Gold and Precious Stones, and Medicine).

The key point I want to make is that, regardless of the actual order, my conjecture is that the seniors occupy segments EF, FG, and, not shown, GJ, connecting these overlapping squares. The king would occupy the entire upper-left quadrant (this would require a cross which would make the diagram too busy, but use your imagination). I’ll also note that this roughly overlaps with the symbolism received during the vision:

Early iteration of the symbol: A taijitu with out accompanying inner dots, a Christian cross at its center, a diamond with indented sides about it, and a spiral about it.

The spiral here indicates the work that I’ve been doing to get at the center, and overlays well with the symbolic representation of the Watchtower tablets. The trinary nature of this is further symbolized by adding the pyramid and octahedron:

Later iteration of the symbol.

And finally, a later iteration suggesting the grounding of the symbol within earth:

Final iteration of symbol.

This was later expanded on Day 30.

I am still not entirely clear on the purpose of the triangular portion; I have considered a model of “inside-outside-union” or “God-person-earth” or “Heaven/Future state-Becoming-Earth/Present state”; none of this is clear and I leave it to the rest of gebofal for it to become clear. Nonetheless, the geometry and symbolism continues to hold my focus.

Finally, I wanted to note the general thrust or spirit behind the forms of the powers of the angels:

Transformation: energy/matter qualia change for perception
Transportation: distinction of spacetime for perception
Gold & Precious stones: single-pointed focus of perception
Living: creates ability to perceive
Medicine: agency to continue perception
Secret Discovery: arrangement of perception
Mechanical Arts: arrangement of matter/energy
Natural substances: perception of differences within matter (qualia)
Seniors (“to impart or influence, knowledge and judgment in human affairs”): rules distinguishing perception across perceivers (this includes necessary changes to matter and energy to do so).

Update: So it occurred to me that there are six seniors per element, not three. One could make the argument that there are three seniors going from the outer square to the inner, and then three returning, which is to say EF to FG to GJ (or whatever that final letter should have been: man, I lose track of my own system when I do rush jobs!) and then back again: JG to GF to FE. This implies directionality, and I’m unsure about this.

Another possibility seems more likely: factorial math, where 3! is the number of connections. In the example above, suppose the common point is of square ABCD and the subsequent square with F as its center (yes, I really should’ve set that up better!) is point D (which for the next square would be in the upper-left corner). The next square we’ll label DXYZ (because I have to start at the back of the alphabet now!), the next we’ll label YUVW, and the innermost we’ll label VRST. This would leave three common points—D, Y, V, and S—across four squares per element (recall that I could only show three squares due to space constraints!), representing all four combinations of power dyads. Thus, rather than the centers, we consider this in terms of common points, which themselves connect to each other as six seniors, represented as DY, DV, DS, YV, YS, and VS.

One could take this step further and imagine these six seniors as six points of an octahedron, connecting the more visible angels, each of which occupies a triangle representing a power. Yet there are four angels per power, and two names of God controlling each set of four! For the former, the only thing I can think of is that each Angel set is divided evenly into four equilateral triangles. For the latter, I think about the duality of regular polyhedra (credit to Tilman Piesk), and the dual of the octahedron is the cube, which can be diced into eight smaller cubes, each of which has a point most external to the center, and has the common center among them. Each of the names of God controlling these sets of four angels can be represented as the outermost and innermost points of the smaller cube.

Watchtower Calls and Servient Aethyr Angels: the Numerical Connection

Updates at bottom.

I realized that as I’ve been doing Watchtower calls in these latter days gebofal, I’ve added in names of some Aethyric governor zodiacal king pairs, without explaining them enough to you.

The rationale for adding these pairs of names has to do with the calls themselves, which often reference very large numbers. Each Zodiacal king within an Aethyr is assigned a very large number of servient angels, so it occurred to me that these numbers could match, or at least approximate, the number referenced in the call. And after doing some research, that’s exactly what I found:

Actual Watchtower call numberSpoken call number (conventional)Large number (>1000) in callNearest number of servient angels assigned to a Zodiacal King in AethyrsAethyr name(s)Associated Zodiacal King name in AethyrAssociated Aethyric Governor(s)Difference between large numbers:

*Call 6 Zodiacal Kings: Zarzilg (twice), Zinggen (twice), Alpudus, Hononol (twice), Lavavoth, Arfaolg (twice), Cadaamp, Zarnaah
**Call 6 Governors: Occodon, Pascomb, Valgars (LIL-1); Oddiorg, Cralpir, Doanzin (ZIP-9); Torzoxi, Abriond, Omagrap (POP-19); Vastrim, Odraxti, Gomziam (RII-29)

I was only able to find the large number of 69636 by using Excel Solver Add-in. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

If you’ve been following along, the Aethyrs and their numbers have some neat features: ZIP is not only the first post-abyssal Aethyr, its number, 9, multiplied by 49 (7*7) yields 441, the sum of the numbers of the outer ring of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth; 9 is also the number of rows of 49 cells of letters at the bottom of Leaf 1B.

The number 19 is of interest because that is the number of calls which are unrelated to the Aethyrs. It is also the sum of the number of astrological planets and the number of zodiacal signs.

LIL is of course the highest Aethyr and its number, 1, suggests the unity of the Divine, while 29, seems to be more of interest in relationship to the other Aethyrs. Summed with 1, it becomes 30, the number of Aethyrs. Summed with 19, it becomes 48, the total number of spoken calls, and also the number of classical elements times the number of zodiacal signs.

Note that I did not actually try to solve for the exact number of angels until today, and the only thing that can be solved for now is a superior combination of individual governors adding to 9639. I’ll go ahead and see if that or any of the large numbers from the preceding gebofal Days 31-39 can be reached by adding together smaller numbers of servient angels, as a bit of prospective rectification and penance. Onward!

Update 1: There was no solution for 1636 (for there weren’t enough numbers from the zodiacal king/governor dyads to draw from). MS Excel Solver found there was also no solution for the following large numbers: 1636, 3663, 5678, and 6332. However, there was a solution for 6739, which is the sum of 1367, 1367 (and this number does appear twice within OXO, for Tahamdo/Zarzilg (Sagittarius) and Nociabi/Lavavoth (Capricorn)), 1617 (ZAX, Tabitom/Zarzilg (Sagittarius)), and 2388 (POP, Omagrap/Zinggen (Aquarius)). Of note is that these are the 30th, 43rd, 44th, and 57th dyads: both 30+57 and 43+44=87, which is 29*3.

Together these sum to 174, which has factors of 2, 3, and 29 (which we saw above). The three signs associated with these kings, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius, are in astrological order. The numbers of the Aethyrs referenced is also clearly of interest: the 15th Aethyr is referenced twice, suggesting 30, the total number of Aethyrs. POP is once again referenced, which has the number 19; 30+19=49. which is the total number of leaves of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth). ZAX, the abyssal 10th Aethyr, is referenced; 10+30 = 40, a biblically significant number and the number of cells in the outer ring of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth, as well as the number of rows of cells with words in Leaf 1B (the remaining 9 rows’ cells contain only letters and punctuation). Finally, 10+19 = 29, the number we saw in the analysis of 69636.

I will provide further updates on the remaining numbers as findings of solutions or lack thereof present themselves.

Update 2: Well, that went a LOT faster in Linux LibreCalc! The solution to 7336 was: 2346 (Aethyr 18, ZEN, Nabaomi/Gebabal, Leo, 52nd dyad), 2360 (Aethyr 1, LIL, Pascomb/Zinggen, Aquarius, 2nd dyad) or Aethyr 4, PAZ, Thotanp/Lavavoth, Capricorn, 10th dyad), and 2630 (Aethyr 27, BAG, Labnixp/Lavavoth, Capricorn, 82nd dyad).

To the arithmetic on the Aethyrs, this is: 18+1 = 19, as seen above. 18+4 = 22, the number of letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and 18+4+27 = 49, as seen above. 27+4 = 31, the Gematria of the name of God, El, and 27+1 = 28, which is the number of planets times the number of elements. On the dyads: 2+10= 12, the number signs of the zodiac; 82+52+10 = 144, 12 squared; 82+2 = 84, the number of planets times the number of signs of the zodiac. We also have the total of 54, which we will see at the bottom solution.

8763 has the solution of 1367, 1617, 2388, and 3391. The first two numbers we’ve seen before, in Aethyr 15, OXO, (and in this case it’s for either Tahamdo/Zarzilg (Sagittarius) or Nociabi/Lavavoth (Capricorn)); Aethyr 10, ZAX (Tabitom/Zarzilg (Sagittarius)), Aethyr 19, POP (Omagrap/Zinggen (Aquarius)), and now Aethyr 12, LOE (Ambriol/Ziracah, Taurus). Once again we have 15+15+19=49, 15+15+10=40, and 12+19=31. These are the 30th, 43rd, 44th, 57th, and now the 36th dyads; these sum to 210, which is the number of Aethyrs (or degrees of an astrological sign) times the number of planets.

9639 has the solution of 1367, 1367, 2232, 2306, and 2367. Both 1367s are from Aethyr 15, OXO, for Tahamdo/Zarzilg (Sagittarius) and Nociabi/Lavavoth (Capricorn). 2232 and 2367 are both from Aethyr 22, LIN (Ozidaia/Arfaolg, Pisces; Calzirg/Arfaolg, Pisces). 2306 is from Aethyr 5, LIT (Nocamal/Alpudus, Libra). The interesting Aethyr arithmetic includes is 22+22+5 = 49. These governors and kings are the 14th, 43rd, 44th, 64th, 66th Governor/Zodiacal King dyads. The sum of these is one more than the previous at 211, which is the 47th prime number. It’s also the reverse of 112, which is the number of letters originally in the transmission of Leaf 49, which, if you’ll recall, was to have 5 tables of 21 letters; this call corresponds to the 5th spoken call.

Additional notes: Half (five) of these large numbers had solutions, whereas the other half did not. Note that Capricorn has shown up in all of these solutions (Capricorn is also the only zodiacal king with an 8-letter name: Lavavoth). The differences between each call and their closest number available in an Aethyr is of interest: 1, 3, 7, 19, 20. Those interested in Gematria will note their sum. Also, the directionality of (-1) + (-7) = -8 suggests the Heptarchy (7 kings plus one high king), as does the sum of 3+19+20=42 (the number of ministers to each king/prince dyad).

I have updated the table above.

Update 3: I noticed that there were still a lot of smaller (<=1K) numbers in the calls, and decided to explore these:

[Spoken] Call 13: 42.
Call 12: 28.
Call 11: 5 and 31.
Call 10: 22 and 24, 1000, 1000
Call 9: 2, 8, and 2.5.
Call 8: 26
Call 7: 28
Call 6: 9
Call 5: 1, 2, 19, 19
Call 4: 33 and 456
Call 3: 12, 6, 6, 12, and 456.

These numbers sum to 3249.5. Oddly, I had initially neglected the 1000’s in Call 10, and liked seeing the sum of 1249.5, for this is exactly one half of 2499, which is the number of cells on a side of most of the pages of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh/Liber Loagaeth (2401) plus the number of sides of the pages thereof (98). Then it occurred to me that 1000 has a relationship to the call it appears in, 10, which is to say, its cube. This might be a rationale to exclude it. If I keep add even divisibility to the mix, then 28 (from Call 7) and 12, 6, 6, 12, and 456 (Call 3) should be excluded, for a total of 757.5; these digits come to 24. Its double, 1515, comes to 12, or if you add the 15’s, then you get 30, which is obviously important to Enochian.

I like 1249.5 better. 😀

Gebofal, Day 37

Sunrise: Call/Key 13, (because this is the practitioners refer to this as call 12). Call to Kings Carmara, Blumaza, and Bnapsen, and to Princes Hagonel and Bralges. Vibrated name of Governor Virooli of ZOM and Zodiacal King Alpudus based on the number of servient angels in this Aethyr being close to the number mentioned in the call. Vibrated the names of god of the elemental earth tablet: MOR, DIAL, HCTGA.

They begin by telling me to expect this to go a little slower than I would like. Again King Carmara chooses to speak on behalf of Kings Blumaza and Bnapsen because he had to work to ensure that the alignment of the planetary king Bnapsen would be available at the time called. He says to consider the mechanics (i.e., mechanical arts) of the earth itself. “Mining: this will ultimately have a role to play in terms of the angels of Secret Discovery” (when such angels come forth during the associated call). The Mechanical Arts related to mining [are] specifically [related to] underground [mining], and not drilling, say, on a drilling platform [at sea]. To some extent it’s true (that mechanical arts of elemental earth are involved), but the distinctions (between the Mechanical Arts of Earth vs. Water) tend to get muddled. So the Mechanical Arts (of elemental earth) are related to mining, digging–even a simple shovel! or a backhoe, or a tractor, things related to construction–all of the mechanical arts related to that: crane, welding: anything related to construction of buildings (and I’m feeling especially King Bnapsen here).

King Carmara continues: “The powers of Transformation of earth: this is a bit trickier, isn’t it?” he asks. “Things related to terraforming, creating terraces, related to the transformation of the earth so that it may grow crops” are powers he includes. “Specifically related to letting fields go fallow, or fertilizer, or composting,” he continues. He anticipates that my composting (which I do in my backyard) will get even better, just because of the Mechanical Art which is unconsciously being embedded within me. “All of these things are related to [elemental] earth,” he summarizes.

When it comes to powers of Transformation, he speaks to the gradual progression of the body as it ages, or preventing that: the structure and functions of the body. The everyday, ins-and-outs, take-it-for-granted things that the body can do.

I try to concentrate and be respectful. I feel my crown chakra being raised up, and I feel my entire subtle body being changed. All three of the kings are pleased, because [my natal chart] (with both luminaries, Saturn, and north node in elemental earth astrological signs) allows for full-body work, so the degree of the exaltation of the moon, which my natal sun is quite close to–they kings are pleased to be able to work directly with these powers of Mechanical Arts and Transformation as they relate to me astrologically; now my natal moon (I was born under a new moon) will no longer be hidden as much by the sun.

The kings ask if I wish to trance out, and I agree. As I’m induced via breathing awareness, I feel more energy coming up off of the leaf. The kings encourage me to let my mind stay blank until this message is complete: “The Transformation of points such as they are: part of this includes Transformation of points flowing about them. So, not only stay in the place where one is, but to use that point as a pivot for all other points: a pivot causing other things to move as they do, to change their general flow, and also to be prepared as fuel for the fire which may arise. [Of this last:] such is the power of Transformation and Mechanical Arts fused in one. All three [elemental earth astrological] signs are capable of this to varying degrees and in various respects, but right now, we are pleased to commune with you, right where you are sitting now.

“We return unto you compassion, as we continue to provide compassion to all of humanity, and to all living things, and to all non-living things, and to all that is. So we ask that you rest, that you not overexert yourself, for twelve days can seem like a short time, but it can be quite long: an eternity may crop up within it. This is the perfect time to rest, to restore yourself…nonetheless, continue, continue, continue, continue to rest. Do not overexert yourself. Maintain the long view, for twelve days is quite a long time.”

I ask, hesitatingly, if they have anything further to say. “No,” they reply. “More will be shown to you: we will follow the same format of each of these signs with respect to Mechanical Arts and Transformational powers.”

Thus ends the vision.

Noon: Similar procedure.

King Carmara once again instructs, and the other two kings defer: “Let us speak now of the Mechanical Arts and Transformation according to sign.

“We will begin with Taurus. When it comes to Taurus [and] the [powers of] Mechanical Arts and powers of Transformation: an excellent example would be the compression of carbon into a diamond. This is perhaps the best example there could ever possibly. The reason why is that the power is to not move, and yet it creates the most beautiful of gemstones.

He bids me pause and relax, which I do. Note: as I type this up, another power of Taurus which occurs to me, and King Carmara agrees, is the power of emotional transformation by not being emotionally moved by the drama of a group dynamic. When done consciously, this can be excellent for improving the quality of the emotional functioning of a group. I thank and ask what other examples there may be. To this, he begins with Transformation: “The power of any seed to transform into a plant is one of these, obviously. The steadiness of a mountain, that is too large to be breached, and thus transforms entire landscapes about it, and transforms where humans and animals inhabit. The relative paucity of people living in the Himalayan mountains is a good example, as well as the difficulty of travel there. Such is the power of transformation, saying ‘Not this.’ This is also [true], to a degree, of Capricorn.

“As far as the Mechanical Arts of Taurus: planting, so any machine that can do that, would be a good example. Another good example would be the tire, which is relatively hard, and makes contact with the ground–to some degree, this is the power of Transportation as well–but that technology of the tire, which remains relative to the car, stationary. Again, it’s a Mechanical Art, and slowly does itself transform over time.

I ask whether he has any more Mechanical Art or Transformation examples in Taurus. I get the sense of digging, but this does not seem quite right (likely King Carmara was referencing this morning’s example). “Consider also things related to money. The power of metals–even though there be powers of precious stones and metals [such as gold]–the power of gold, for example.” It transforms the entire landscape on account of–and here he paraphrases The Treasure of the Sierra Madre–the power it has to entice human labor into the finding and the getting of it.

Note: Here I finally see a complementary pattern across the powers of the Watchtower tablets. The presence of gold and precious stones causes it to transform a landscape, yet transformation turns gold and precious stones into the very jewelry that still remains the main purpose of finding them. A mechanical art can be used in order to discover secrets (via the scientific method), yet knowing a secret can be used in mechanical arts (i.e., engineering). Living creatures can be cured by medicine, yet living creatures and elements also create it, either via natural production or synthesis (for we are indeed animals). So it seems to me that the slow progression towards the center via this squaring of the circle is bringing me closer to understanding the unity across the Watchtower multiplicity.

After a long pause: “Nothing further do I have to say about Taurus,” King Carmara concludes. “Let us move on to Virgo. Any Mechanical Art which has to do with correction, perfection, and purifying [would be of Virgo], so for example the appropriate equipment for a chemical reaction. The appropriate cleaning equipment, anything like that, cleansers of all kinds–to some degree water is involved with this, but the ability to make something pure belongs to Virgo. Sterilization, hand sanitizer, UV light–it purifies via elemental fire [i.e., electromagnetism], but the tool used to make it is of the Virgo nature. With respect to Transformation, anything that causes a revitalization as a result of this purification: so, if for example, a neighborhood is not doing well on account of neglect or people not caring, that can be transformed by these [elemental earth] angels of Transformation [using the power of Virgo]. Nothing further do I have to say about Virgo,” he concludes.

“Now, with respect to Capricorn: you have already touched on it in your mind. So, the Mechanical Arts of Composting would be an excellent example: the death and dying thereof, allowing something new to take place. The long view of Capricorn is that it senses when a process is going to die, or that it may die over a long period of time, so it adjusts. It does a complete–it prepares for that death, for the sowing, for the harvesting: always focused ahead to the harvest. Composting is a good example, things returning–though dead, allowing life to exist. So in this way, Capricorn and Taurus are very much in sync. Once again, structures: the building up of structures over time, the slow and deliberate process–any transformation that requires deliberation would fall under Capricorn, and as far as Mechanical Arts, all of [those] which have previously been said [relating to construction].”

I ask if he has anything else. He says, “No,” and thus ends the vision (quite the Saturnian answer!).

Sunset: Similar procedure.

King Carmara alone addresses me: “Everything that needed to be imprinted already has been for today. Instead–we can speak briefly about what it means for [these powers] to happen [when passed between people], but you already know what this means[, for them] to happen. Everything that I have said can flow logically.

“But let us speak now about what is happening with gebofal. Twelve days: you now have twelve days left. Twelve be the important number: the number of the signs of the zodiac [equals the number of days] remaining, but you know that, of course, you are already in the 19 [days after the Aethyrs,] which includes this [number, 12]. You are in so many numbers, spinning about you right now. It’s easy to get lost, but the main thing here, is that twelve days represents for you a time, since you have already begun doing this, before this final call[, Leaf 1]. You have cultivated good friends.

“There will be an unwinding about you. There will be…an ‘integration’ is too simple of a word. There will be a fusion and a fission, happening at once. A fission happening of who you thought you were, even after having scried the Aethyrs: you are truly entering now the inner core of Adam Qadmon. You are now to focus with the utmost compassion on continuing to delve into the relationship between these [Watchtower] powers, the rules governing them, and why the rules are there. When you read Leaf 1 aloud, there will be so much undoing: it will be difficult for your mind to take. You must continue, you must press forward. The Most High has commanded it. Continue to speak with the rules, in lovingkindness and compassion. Continue to ask that question, about how God containeth reality, yet reality containeth God; and what that truly means for you as a person; why, in particular, it caused these particular shifts, why each of these rules are spread out as they are? It may seem that they could be continue to be subdivided forever and ever, but such is not the case! There are other [magical and mystical] systems which incorporate variations on this, and you have compassion for all of it. Yet why did this system, leading you to the realm of Adam Qadmon: Why did it split out the rules according to this method? You’ve already touched on this in some ways, and [your friends have helped you out, each in their unique way], but this will be something for your soul and spirit to face.

“I have nothing more to say.”

Thus ends the vision.

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

Update 1: See text.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Finally, note that the tablet order changes from:

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