Let theAdeptbe armed with his MagickRood jand pro
vided with his Mystic Rose.

Aleister Crowley, The Star Sapphire

THE TEMPLE. As a magician, your temple is your
universe. Enochian Magcck does not recognize only one
universe but a myriad of universes, one for each man. As our
thinking tends to be similar to that of others, so our universes tend
to overlap. As thinking (Le., our inner subjective universe) tends to
be dissimilar, so our universes
tend toward isolation. This fact is dearly seen in the third
Aethyr, ZOM, where you can become a true Magus, the
creator and master of your own universe. Man's nature aboye
the first Aethyr, LIL, is monadic. Below LIL man's nature is
dualistc. The two primary polarities of man's dualistic
nature are objectivity (the universe) and subjectivity
(consciousness).

THE CIRCLE. A cirde is the magical symbol of man's monadic
nature aboye LIL. It should be used by you to
define the limits of your magical operations. Acirde, usually
green, is drawn on the floor around yourself. Divine mames and
appropriate symbols, such as the magical formulas, described later
in this manual, are used to strengthen the cirde. Lamps or
candles can be used outside the circle to ward off the forces of
darkness.

THE ALTAR. An altar is usually placed within the
de. It symbolizes the foundation of your work. The altar
should be foursquare to symbolize the stable basis of the Magick to
be used as well as your fixed will. The altar can be made of either
oak (rigidity) or acacia (resurrection).
THE WAND. This is the most important of the magical
instruments. The Wand symbolizes your Magical Will as

54

well as your Wisdom and your Word. It is the principie weapon of
the Magias. The Wand is used in both invocations and evocations.
Yours is aLso ara embodiment of your creative power. When
charged with a masculine force iit symbolizes the lingam. In
Enochian Magick the Wand is the symbol of Fire, and is especially
used in those operations involving tthe Watchtower of Fire.
THE CUP. The Cup is a passive instrument. It represents your
magical understanding. In the beginning, your Cup is usually
empty. Gradually, with effort and experience, it filas with your
understanding of truth. It is by nature round, vulnerable, and
receptive. When charged with a feminine force, iit symbolizesthe
yoni. In Enochian Magick the Cup is the magical symbol of Water
and is especially used in operations involving the Watchtower of
Water.

THE SWORD. The Sword symbolizes your ability to reason. The
magical Sword is the analytical faculty of the mirad. As your mental
faculties dissect complex iideas and theories, so the sharpness of
the Sword will cutand pierce through things. When you pierce a
demon with your Sword, you simultaneously strike iit with rational
logical thought. The Sword thus aids to see through illusion and
complexity. The nature of this weapon is destructive. It is also
divisive. The blade should be steel, the metal of Mars. It is
considered a crude weapon and its use is usually restricted to the
Watchtowers and lower Aethyrs. Its primary use is to free you from
emotional entanglements that are often encountered in the
Watchtowers. Its natural force is masculine. In Enochian Magick,
the Sword is the magical symbol of Air, and is especiallyused in
those operations involving tthe Watchtower of Air.
THE PANTACLE. The Pantacle is your food (often synabolized
by bread). As the cup is hollow, so the Pantade is flat. It also
symbolizes your body. It serves chiefly as a source of strength and
vitality. It is usually made in the

55

shape of a disk and enscribed with appropriate magical symbols.
For each quality or idea engraved on a Pantacle, the symbol for its
opposite should also be included so that the forces embodied are
always balanced. In many magical operations the Pantacle is used
to represent the karma of the magician (occultism defines the
pphysicalbody as the crystallization of one's past karma). Its
natural force is feminine. In Enochian Magick, the Pantacle is the
magical symbol of Earth, and is especially used in those
operations iinvolving the Watchtower of Earth.
THE DAGGER. The Dagger symbolizes the piercing ability of
thought. As you aquire experience and encounter the Aethyrs, you
will gradually replace the cumbersome Sword with the quicker,
and equally effective, Dagger. The sword dissociates and divides,
but the dagger pierces te the heart. Its chief function is the letting
of blood and thereby it forces calmness. Like the Sword, the
Dagger is associated with the cosmic element Air.

NOTE: it is sometimes said that the Wand should be associated
with Air because the Caduceus was the Wand of the god Mercury
who has traditionally been associated. with Air. This would
associate the Dagger and Sword with Fire. This fine of reasoning
concludes that Crowley and the Golden Dawn used deliberate blinds
here to fool the unwary. Rather than take sides on this issue, you
should first experiment with both combinations and then choose
whichever works best for you.
