Zodiacal Table and Lamen: Effects

I wanted to briefly touch on the zodiacal tools (lamen and table) effects in the event that others have been inspired to use it. For this, I am drawing both from my first time calling the zodiacal kings forth in April, the first time that I scried LIL with both the Zodiacal Lamen and Zodiacal Holy Table, and finally some clarifying questions to the zodiacal kings today. I’ll note that for both times I called on the Zodiacal kings, it was the king associated with my rising sign (ascendant) who appeared first. I recommend calling forth all 12 kings and seeking reconciliation towards their energies. I have found all of their prophetic sayings to be accurate.

The main quote that I received during my scrying LIL to consider the zodiacal energies called forth to be like nuclear fusion: “Things are brought together and the energy therein is contained through the massiveness of the process.” I strongly encourage a general review of nuclear fusion in order for the rest of this post to be clear.

First and foremost, my preliminary view is that zodiacal workings are is both potent and subtle, so be prepared for unexpected effects. Beyond this, the zodiacal forces that have arisen have been contra-antiscia to those in my natal chart, an astrological aspect which I have previously noted on the Holy Table of Practice transmitted to Dee & Kelley. Contra-antiscia signifies energies which are balanced across the equinox line (or plane) of 0 degrees Aries to 0 degrees Libra. Equinoxes are literal moments of balance: both the northern and southern hemispheres have days and nights of equal length (Libra, of course, means “scales” in Latin). Therefore, bringing in energies contra-antiscia to one’s own suggests attempting to balance one’s own astrological energies with a complement, with the overall result being a greater alignment with the zodiacal influences when they are at their most balanced.

Note that nuclear fusion is also a balance of massive energies–the energy of plasma as well as the energy needed to contain such plasma (the latter coming in the form of massive gravity or, on Earth, very strong artificial magnetic fields). This is in line with the phrase “massiveness of the process” in that the 360 degrees of the zodiac (if thought of as spaces looking like wedges of an orange expanded out in all directions) represent the whole of the universe, or perhaps the Divine itself. My reflection on this is to prepare oneself for influences to which one has previously been blinded, but which have an underlying recognizability when they arise in one’s life.

Today, the angels in particular mentioned that there are also antiscia elements of the zodiacal energies which they rarely stir up, specifically, to quote my friend CodyP, they volatize the fixed and fix the volatile. At times they first do one and then the other, returning the individual to their original level of dynamism. Here, they used the analogy of a caterpillar, which becomes fixed in its chrysalis form, and then volatile (or more dynamic) as a butterfly. It is rare for someone to be the focus of only this antiscia energy, they said, and would be used for someone who is either fossilized or flailing. The effect of the antiscia would be like a slingshot. Here they gave a different analogy of an asteroid making a parabola around the sun, moving from kinetic energy to potential and then back to kinetic energy again. The effects of the antiscia energy would be to not necessarily change their energetic nature but to change the course of that energy for the best possible outcome.

I strongly suspect that the magician working with these zodiacal energies would do little but open the door to the Divine, and let His mysterious ways issue forth.

Overview Video & Enochian Working: Zodiacal Table & Lamen

I received the zodiacal lamen I ordered today, and took the rest of the day off to get started working with it. Some quick observations:

  1. The energy of the zodiacal table & lamen is subtler and more ethereal.
  2. I recommend saying the names of the letters around the zodiacal table 12 times each, not 7.
  3. I made a little video explaining the table and lamen and its uses.


Fractal Enochian: Zodiacal Kings, Heptarchical Kings, and the parts of the Earth

I may have one more Enochian post this year, but I wanted to mention some observations about the overall structure of Enochian that I noticed recently. Enochian’s powerful initiatory system of the 30 Aethyrs has 91 governors, which correspond to the same number of “parts of the earth” (the governors’ names are derived from the Enochian Watchtowers). 91 is an interesting number Kabbalistically, as Bill Heidrick points out, for it is the sum of 50 (Mem-Yod: “Who?”) and 41 (Mem-Aleph: “What?”).

91 is also interesting in that it is 7*13. Enochian is septenary, but 13 is interesting; it’s Jesus with His disciples, or Israel with his 12 sons/its 12 tribes. Each Watchtower tablet is 12 by 13. Moreover, because the angels were keen on reversals (“The last shall be first, and the first, last”): 91 is the reverse of 19, which is a significant number in Enochian. The first 19 calls complement the 30 calls to the Aethyrs, which sum to 49 (7×7). 19 is also the number of zodiacal kings (12) and heptarchical kings (7). (13 is the reverse of 31, which is the number associated with the name of God “El” in Hebrew and which appears as a number in Enochian called “GA” (which is also the name of an angel).

Together 91 and 19 sum to 110. This sum is very close to 111, the number associated with the fully spelled letter Aleph. However, there is a 92nd governor, Laxdizi, whose name can be derived in the same way as 90 of the other governors (the name Governor Paraoan, who is included as one of the 91 governors, was derived from the watchtowers in a different manner from the other 90), suggesting the system is subtly pointing at 111. 92 is 23*4, and 23 is the total number of kings in the system (for there are four elemental kings, each at the center of a watchtower tablet, to go with the 12 zodiacal and 7 heptarchical kings).

Updates or follow-up posts as they occur to me.

Magical Astrological Elections, 2022

We’re in the fourth quarter of 2021, so it’s probably a good time to give some magical elections. Days are for Texas in the United States, so your timing may vary.

January 16, 2022: Fomalhaut election. The goal here is to put Jupiter on the ascendant for a Fomalhaut election to serve your reputation. Jupiter rules the 10th house, but you must also banish Mars (also in the 10th house) and probably also Saturn (in its joy in the 12th), unless their configuration is especially favorable in your chart. Consider also banishing the sun, which is in a very tight conjunction with Pluto in the 11th. Use tin as your main magica materia and any other stones associated with Jupiter and/or Pisces in your correspondence. Enochian Zodiacal King is Arfaolg, the king is Bynepor, and the prince is Butmono (ideally these would be spelled in Enochian from right to left). Archangel for Fomalhaut is Gabriel (Gabriel’s power is strengthened with the moon in Cancer in this election; spell the name in Hebrew if you’re able, also right-to-left). Refer to Agrippa for the sign of Jupiter which can be added. Christopher Warnock has additional information for Pisces in his Fixed Star, Sign, and Constellation Magic book.

March 5, 2022: Jupiter domicile cazimi election. In my location, I have Jupiter and the sun on the midheaven. Venus is applying to a conjunction with Mars at the anaretic degree of Capricorn in the 8th house. The Pisces and Jupiter angels and sign from the previous election are applicable.

April 27, 2022. Venus/Jupiter conjunction at the exaltation degree. I was super bummed that I didn’t get to do the exact conjunction date, but that falls on an eclipse. Instead, we’ll use the date from three days before, with the moon part of a stellium conjunct the Ascendant. You’ll want to have the moon and Venus be just above the horizon. Neptune is conjunct this, so if you want to banish it, use the Greater Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram, using the forms for Saturn but and substituting the planetary glyph of Neptune for Saturn. Regardless, you may also want to banish Mars, since it’s in the first house (though it’s not in the worst position since this is a night chart and it is above the horizon). The Pisces and Jupiter angels and sign from the previous election are, once again, applicable. The Enochian Venusian king and prince are Baligon and Bagenol. Either tin or copper will do.

October 16, 2022. Spica election. Sun and Venus are conjunct the fixed star this day, and can be put on the midheaven in my location. The Enochian Venusian king and prince names from before are applicable, and the Enochian king and prince of the sun are Bobogel and Bornogo. No real need to banish for this election, in my opinion. Magica materia is copper (Venus).

October 22, 2022. Venus domicile cazimi. Sun and Venus share the anaretic degree, making this an especially powerful Libra election. In my location, they do so in the 1st house, but this could be an equally powerful 7th or 10th house election, depending on your location. They also are separating from a square from Pluto, but this is about 3 degrees away. Every major planet except the moon has either essential dignity or sign-based reception in this election, so I don’t see a need to banish here.
