The LVX Signs vs. the Portal Signs:
"In some of the rituals suggested in this curriculum, (the SIRP, the SBRP, the BRH, and Regardie'sOpening by Watchtower) call for the initiate to give the LVX Signs after tracing the Spiritpentagrams. This is because traditionally, advanced rituals of this type were performed only byinitiates in the grade of Adeptus Minor (or higher). The LVX Signs are the grade signs of an Adeptus Minor, not necessarilythegrade sign of the Element of Spirit. The Fifth Element is conferred on an initiate in the Portal grade,and therefore the grade signs of Spirit are the Opening and Closing of the Veil, just as the gradesign for Air is that of the Theoricus. It is therefore apropriate for the Portal initiate to freelysubstitute the Portal Signs for the LVX signs [
]. Werealize, however, that many students have already been performing these rituals with the traditionalLVX Signs, and may be reluctant to switch to the portal Signs. Therefore we have presented therituals in this course with the traditional LVX Signs, and leave the option open for the individual tochoose."Excerpted from the "Self-Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition," Chic and Tabatha Cicero, 1998,Llewellyn Publications, St. Paul, Min.
