FOREWORD
Greetings! In this book is offered a new religion. All Gods are honored, celebrated and praised as aspects of the One True God, by whatever Name or Names you call God. What is offered below is based on the Qabalistic Tree of Life and the Thelemic Pantheon. It may, however, be adapted and used by anyone of any religious background or preference, the atheist and the agnostic. What is shown is a means to an end, which is Magickal and Spiritual Enlightenment. Every person, no matter who you are, will benefit from reading this book. Simply reading and studying what is offered in this book will, in and of itself, plant holy seeds within the consciousness of the reader, which will take root and grow over time in a healthy way. Whether you perform the ceremonies suggested below, physically or mentally, is another matter. They are recommended. However, simply studying the rituals, the Oaths and the philosophy offered in this book will further your Initiation and assist you in performing and accomplishing the Great Work which you have been placed on this Earth to do. Within the confines of this book is offered a complete System of Initiation. The Work to attain the most exalted states of Initiation is addressed in such a way that, if the student uses what is offered with a sincere, humble and devoted heart, nothing else is needed. All the guidance you need is here. The writer has been charged to assist in the magickal, spiritual and material evolution of mankind by offering a new approach to Initiation which is more “in step” with the present times. The practice of Magick is a noble art and science. It is not “dark” in any way. To the contrary, the Work is of the nature which dispels darkness or ignorance. Too much light is blinding. So we step into the Light in “little” steps. Each step is taken with care and due consideration of the evolving perspective. Nevertheless, a cover to cover reading of this book is encouraged at the inception to get a “big picture”. This will assist in gaining perspective on the Way of Return along the Royal Path of Initiation. Our lives are a great and wondrous magickal and spiritual adventure. Each of us is the main figure in a Great Divine Drama. Life presents opportunity, no matter what your circumstances may be. You are given the opportunity to embrace Truth and Justice in all of your experiences, which requires courage. You wear the Crown of God. This is Truth. You are being guided and moved in all that you do. Initiation involves Becoming aware of your True Nature so you may emulate Divine Being. If you can approach the Work with an open mind and an almost Childe-like innocence and attitude, your Eye may be opened to the wonder of Life and the magickal nature of all your experiences. No matter what has occurred in your life, no matter where you are or what you have done, you have a chance to rise fresh each day, to make a new life for yourself and to influence the lives of those around you. We practice Magick through how we live our lives, and through the symbols we are given, which includes family and friends, business acquaintances and others we encounter in our lives. By being a Source of Light and Love, by being a Source of Truth and Justice, we further our own Initiations and assist others in their Initiation.

This book is given as a tool. May you take the time to use it to change your life and assist in changing the lives of others. May the Blessings of the Most High be upon you and yours. Amen.

INTRODUCTION
The Sanctuary's System of Initiation is based on a series of Oaths of Initiation, some relating to the Sephiroth, and others relating to the Paths, on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. These are discussed in the Guide to the Oaths of Initiation, which tells a story of Initiation (and, for this reason, is best to be read in its entirety). The Guide also provides fairly detailed information on how to structure your work using the Oaths of Initiation. These are designed to be used in tandem with the Ritual of the Stars, which is an evolved (and evolving) form of ritual described in the Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars. The fundamentals of the Sanctuary's System of Initiation are set forth in the following documents: The Guide to the Oaths of Initiation The Oaths of Initiation for the Sephiroth The Oaths of Initiations for the Paths The Scroll of the Ritual of the Stars You are encouraged to begin using the Sanctuary's System of Initiation if it appeals to you. It is the basis of all magickal, mystical and initiatory work through the Sanctuary. Alternatively, may this information assist you on the Royal Path of Initiation no matter what System of Initiation you use. In offering this System of Initiation, we seek to reach and initiate more Children than have thus far been reached by other magickal orders and religious establishments which have previously manifested. We are guided that this can be done by dispensing with some old ways, and bringing in a fresh approach which is more in tune with our times. Our Work is to assist with the magickal, spiritual and material evolution of the human race by providing an approach to Initiation which is healthy, balanced and focused, and usable by all no matter what religious background you may have or come from. You are encouraged to dispel skepticism through direct experience. May the information available in this Book, and our work through the Sanctuary of Thoth, assist you in evolving as a source of Light and Love to others and the entire Universe. And so do we heal the human race and accomplish the Great Work of Thelema here on Earth and throughout the Planes, to the Glory of the Goddess!

This same work is accomplished through the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation. The teachings of Buddhism may be briefly summarized to assist in recognizing the nature of suffering. The Way is being shown. suffering ceases to exist on the Higher Planes. so the elements of the Childe are consecrated to that Step and prepared for the next Step.

The Sanctuary’s System of Initiation systematically takes you through every step to bring you there. your effort is required. The Childe perceives Heaven on Earth. you will discover the absence of an ego in all aggregates. the purpose for it is seen and beheld as necessary in the Great Work. Perspective from the Higher Plane of Briah is attained. which is an aspect of the Work of the Childe of Tiphareth. Reverse the Curse which has been placed upon you arising from the Fall of Man. Put an end to your suffering. and find purpose and meaning to our lives in all that we do. which is then redeemed and set upon the Throne of the Great Mother in Binah.

The Work of the Childe of Tiphareth is to turn this Cross to the Gold of the Sun. The Magickal Signs of the Childe of Tiphareth These are the LVX Signs.

This is done by placing the elements of the Childe’s Sphere under the Presidency of the Name (YHVH) by formulating the Zodiacal Belt about the Sphere and the four Pillars of the Temple (representing the Father. the Son and 186 .THE MAGICKAL SIGNS OF THE ADEPTI (Including those of the Virgin Daughter) Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe Copyright © 2009 Sanctuary of Thoth.

the Daughter) within the Sphere. The Middle Pillar is established in the Void in the Center of the Sphere, which is the place of Spirit. This being done, the Childe must then consciously connect the movements of these elements (the 5) to the dominion of the Holy Guardian Angel in Tiphareth (the 6). Thus will the Name reformulate as YHShVH and thus will the Childe realize the equation of 5 = 6, which will release the Childe from the Cross of Suffering and allow the Childe to embody or assume the Cross of Gold. Amen.  L – Feet remain in position, raise the right hand so the right arm is extended straight up with the palm open and facing to the left and moved to slightly over the head, the left arm is down and bent at the elbow so the bottom part of the arm is horizontally extended to the left of the body. While doing this, look left and say “The Sign of the Dance of Asi”. V – Feet remain in position, raise both hands over the head so the arms are extended in the shape of a “V” with palms tilted slightly outwards, direct your consciousness behind you while looking forward and say - “The Sign of the Joy of Iacchus.” This is also called the Sign of Triumph commonly used in other rituals of the Sanctuary. X – Feet remain in position, cross both forearms over the chest, left over right (to show the arm corresponding with the Pillar of Mercy on the embodied Little Tree as “active” so to speak and the arm corresponding with the Pillar of Severity on the embodied Little Tree as “passive” so to speak), make fists with the hands, and say “The Sign of the Blazing Star”. Direct your consciousness forward, make the Sign of the Cross again and the Sign of the Blazing Star again while saying “LVX, Lux, the Light of the True Cross”. This completes the making of the LVX Signs. May the Yitziratic Hexagram formed on the Little Tree which you embody shine like the Sun and the Cross of the Elements turn to Gold! Amen. Commentary: Note that, if you are standing in the Center of the Sphere while you make the LVX Signs: o While making the Sign of the Cross, you will be looking east in the place of Aries which is the cardinal sign of Fire on the Zodiacal belt. o While making the Sign of the Dance of Asi, you will be looking to the north in the place of Cancer which is the cardinal sign of Water on the Zodiacal belt. o While make the Sign of the Joy of Iacchus (the Sign of Triumph), your consciousness will be directed to the west in the place of Libra which is the cardinal sign of Air on the Zodiacal belt. o While making the Sign of the Blazing Star, your consciousness will be directed to the south in the place of Capricorn which is the cardinal sign of earth on the Zodiacal belt.

o While making the final Sign of the Cross and Sign of the Blazing Star, your consciousness is again being directed to the east, completing the Circle of the Zodiacal Belt as you complete this aspect of your invocation. Go forth now Childe of Tiphareth in the Light and Love of your Holy Guardian Angel. Amen. The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Geburah The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Geburah is Puer – the Boy. The Childe of Geburah has realized the equation of 5 = 6 described above. Adepthood has been attained. The Childe is like a young Majestic King or Queen who now Works in the Knowledge and Conversation of His Holy Guardian Angel. The Work of the Childe of Geburah involves a ripening of Adepthood into a phase of adulthood, as the Childe evolves into a Mighty Warrior of God who does only True Will (from the perspective of Geburah) and nothing else. The Childe is evolving as a Pure Vessel for the Angel. The Childe has consciously connected the movement of the elements of the Childe to the dominion of the Holy Guardian Angel. However, this has not been fully assimilated as of yet in the consciousness of the Childe. The Childe now is to realize the equation of 6 = 5, which shows that the Holy Guardian Angel has complete dominion over the Childe’s thoughts, words and deeds. The Angel moves the Childe. In the process of Initiation into these Mysteries, an occult “death” of sorts occurs, as the Childe realizes human being to be nothing but an extension of the Angel’s Being and the Childe is rid of any qliphotic parts. The Childe’s Eye has been rightly focused. Preliminary Second Order initiations have been attained. The Childe of Geburah now moves from the Lower Astral Plane (represented by the Yitziratic Hexagram which had formulated on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere) to the Upper Astral Plane or Solar Plane (represented by the Heavenly Hexagram which will formulate on the floor of the Childe’s Sphere). The Solar Plane has its own magickal formulae which have been aptly described in other papers issued by the Sanctuary. It is said that Magickal Power is granted to the Childe of Geburah, as the Angel now performs the Holy Magick through the Childe. As the Angel acts through the Childe, the Magick is performed by a simple concentration and direction of the Powers of the Mind. These Mysteries are revealed through the symbolism of the Wand of the Childe of Geburah, which is the Phoenix Wand. They are also revealed by the Sign of Puer, which invokes the Spiritual Energies of Geburah and may be used to direct the Mars Force as appropriate in the Great Work. The Sign may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows:  Stand, looking straight forward in the direction appropriate to the invocation or projection, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, the right hand is raised with the arm bent at the elbow so the palm is open and facing outwards before the right shoulder with fingers spread apart, the left hand is placed before and against the genitals with the thumb extended straight out horizontal to the body with the remaining fingers curled to the palm. Nothing is said while making this Sign.

188

Commentary: The right hand shows a projection of the Pentagram, which is formed by the presentation of the hand. The Pentagram is a symbol of Geburah and the manifest Powers of the All-Father of Chokmah. The left hand shows a projection of the regenerative power which is the Mars Force from perspective of the Childe’s present Work on the Tree of Life. The Magickal Signs of the Childe of Chesed The Magickal Sign of the Childe of Chesed is Vir – the Man or King. The Childe has evolved from a young Majestic King or Queen as a Childe of Tiphareth, to a Mighty Warrior of God doing only True Will as a Childe of Geburah and now must evolve into a Mighty King or Queen as a Childe of Chesed. This is done by and through attaining the Power to Love and what is known as the Balances. From the perspective of the Childe of Chesed, the Power to Love, which is to Love All in every thought, word and deed, is conferred by Babalon the Beautiful, who is a lower aspect of Nuit. Pray to Babalon for the Power to Love All, and to Silence the Waters to all but Her Desire which is His Will. Love balances Will, so the Fire of Will does not burn. Said another way, Love tempers Will. This is shown most directly by the Feminine Nature of the Paths leading from Chokmah. Chesed emanates the purest expressions of these Spiritual Energies below the Abyss in the form of the Serpent Power (which precedes the Mars Force). The Sign of Vir shows the nature of this expression. It may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows;  Stand, looking straight forward in the direction appropriate to the invocation or projection, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, both hands are raised to the sides of the head slightly above and before the ears, the thumbs are pointed out and forward bent at the knuckle, and the other four fingers of each hand are curled to the palms. Nothing is said while making this Sign. Commentary: The Sign of Vir may be made to invoke the Spiritual Energies of Chesed and project the Serpent-Power in the Great Work. The Sign itself further shows the Balances, which the Childe of Chesed must attain as noted above. The Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter The Power to Love washes the Childe and makes the Childe pure and chaste. As the Childe of Chesed receives Initiation in the “inner”, the Childe will express the purest Will currents balanced by Love below the Abyss. The Childe sees All as God and, thus, Loves All as God. The Childe still embodies the Little Tree, which distinguishes the Childe as a member of the Second Order. When the Little Tree is refined and honed to Perfection, the Childe will attain to the Holy State of the Virgin Daughter, who is to be redeemed according to the Formula of the Tetragrammaton and set upon the Throne of the Great Mother in Binah. This may be accomplished only when the Childe is of Pure Aspiration. The progression of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter is further shown by the Planetary attributions of the Heavenly Hexagram.

189

On the Heavenly Hexagram, Venus is attributed to the Sphere of Chesed and Jupiter moves to its rightful position in the place of the Sphere of Kether. Thus, as the Childe attains to Chesed in the “inner” on the Heavenly Hexagram, the Sign of Puella – the Girl or Virgin Daughter - follows the Sign of Vir. This is the first of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter, who aspires unto Binah. As further described in other papers of the Sanctuary, in order to attain to Binah, the Little Tree of the Virgin Daughter must be “broken”, which means the Holy Guardian Angel of the Childe (attributed to the Little Tree as the Son) must be sacrificed by no other than by the Hand of God. This is done by a Ritual performed by the Holy One related to the Mysteries of Atu VI entitled “The Lovers”. The Childe will then temporarily embody the Great Tree, as the Childe stands before the Holy One and the Supernal Mother in Binah and the Supernal Father in Chokmah. Even this Great Tree is then left behind as the Childe’s vessel is emptied and filled with the Essence of the All-Mother. The Childe will then enter the Supernal Triangle as the Great Mother and Work as a Childe of Binah. The second of the Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter, who is in the process of making this Journey, is called the Sign of Babalon, who is attributed to Binah. On the Heavenly Hexagram, the Moon is attributed to Binah. Thus, this Sign shows through symbolism the process of making the Journey first by embodying the Great Tree and then by receiving the Essence of the All-Mother and Becoming wholly the Great Mother. The Magickal Signs of the Virgin Daughter may be made mentally or physically with equal success, as follows:  The Sign of Puella – Stand, the right heel is placed in the arch of the left foot, the right hand covers the left breast with palm open on the body, the left hand covers the genitals with palm open on the body, and the head is tilted down and slightly to the left with an attitude of innocence. The Sign of Babalon – Stand, feet spread wide apart, heels under the shoulders with feet at 45º degree angles, the arms lifted above the head and bent at the elbows with hands arched inward and the palms out, the head is tiled down. This is also known as the Sign of Mulier. When making this Sign, visualize the Little Tree being “broken” and pushed away, and replaced by the Great Tree. The Childe is silent when making these Signs.

May the Virgin Daughter arise from the progression in the Sign of Maters Triumphant. This concludes the Magickal Signs which represent a crossing of the Abyss. To attain unto Binah, a Virgin Daughter must overcome the Abyss. The symbolism of the “Abyss” shows there is a separation between God and man. This is the Grand Illusion. There is no separation between God and man except in the consciousness of man. The Daughter is the Mother. God is man. Once rid of any qliphotic parts, and made pure and chaste, the Holy One will Reverse the Great Curse and cause the Virgin Daughter to undergo these holy transformations to arise newborn to Understanding as a Childe of Binah ever to the Glory of God. Amen.

They have Life as the Chia (the Life Force) runs through their bodies. There appears to be a separation from the Supernal Parents.

whether following Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation down the Tree or contemplating the Atu from the particular perspective attained by an aspirant on the Way of Return up the Tree. the current of the Flaming Sword is not broken in its course. which is the Feminine Soul of Nature. and embodies all that preceded. These form a basis for all of the Childe’s thoughts. The Journey now continues wholly below the Supernal Realm. carryout and manifest the Word of God. The Childe’s actions manifest God’s Will. Here. we see a proof of the phrase “Love is the Law.who is of His Father and Mother. This motion. which begins on the Female Side of the Tree and leads from Binah to Tiphareth. The Ruach and the Nephesch are distinguished from what has preceded in the formulation of the Microcosm. There appears to be a separation (which is the Grand Illusion of the Abyss). The Fire of the Holy One is expressed. Rather. Although the Magician of Atu I (who is also the Mercury of Gemini attributed to Atu VI) continues to perpetuate the Grand Illusion of the Abyss. it flows continuously for Chesed is a manifestation of that which preceded in the Womb of the AllMother. adorations unto Thee! Go forth to the Glory of the Holy Names of God. The Charioteer is God manifesting to carry the Word into the lower planes. It precedes the Mars Force of Geburah and is informing of the Law established in Chesed. some of which are received in the form of silent speech. The Yechidah moves. who is the Microprosopus. including that of the Chariot. Love under Will”. There is no separation between God and man. The Journey now moves into the Yitziratic Realm. we stay focused on Spirit’s Journey down the Tree. The Charioteer wears the Crown of God. It is the “Fire 195 . He manifests Them. which is the last Path on the Journey originating in the Supernal Realm. Amen. Atu VI – The Lovers. is shown to be under the presidency of the Name (YHVH). this Atu is subject to such varied interpretations depending on the perspective from which it is viewed. there is in the same flash counterbalancing action on the Female Side of the Tree. The process of creation continues. We have the Neschamah of Binah. which lies between Chesed and Geburah. which commenced in the Supernal Realm. The parts of the Soul are now to be distinguished. We have the Chia of Chokmah. The Microprosopus is a manifestation of God. symbolized by the four Pillars of the Chariot. which is the Spirit of All and the Male Creative Life Force. which is the Soul of All. Pure and Perfect. it shows the Influence of the Supernals on all motion in the Universe. Each Microcosm is unique but an indivisible part of the Macrocosm. This Atu is of great importance. Amen. Mental offspring are produced and sent forth. Amen. Atu VII – The Chariot. Perhaps. The Chia is received by the Neschamah. more than others. words and deeds. When we think of action on the Male Side of the Tree. By speaking the Word. O’ Beautiful Childe. and embodies God’s Hands to work on the lower planes. Although there is no given Path on the Tree of Life from Binah to Chesed. The Son has been created. His transparency allows the Light and Love of His Parents to shine through unobstructed. Here. which bring the Word into manifestation. which transmits the Word to the Ruach. From this. The Microcosm is complete. we see such action on the Path of Zain. This is the Charioteer. We have the Yechidah of the Crown. Atu XI – Lust (Strength). Atu VII is attributed to the Path of Cheth. this is to be cast out. By its position. Babalon the Beautiful nourishes Her Lion-Childe with the Serpent Power. This is the sole task of the Childe – to bear the Holy Grail – to receive. Its counterpart on the Male Side of the Tree is the Path of Heh attributed to Atu XVII – The Star. the Childe brings the Word into manifestation. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Teth. which further defines the nature of the Law of Thelema The current received by Chesed is sent forth to Geburah. The Pillars of Mercy and Severity. but there is not. are reflected into the Microcosm. which was previously encountered on Spirit’s Journey.

it is of higher nature than that expressed by Tiphareth. and the redemption of the human race. selection and digestion are all suggested. The Word carries with it the Serpent Power. And so does the Hermit assist in the Great Work of a new creation. The Hermit is one who has been made aware of his starry heritage. As we have seen. It nourishes the Lion-Childe with the Light. who transmit their Influence to illumine the SixFold Star and move earthly man. He is a Chosen Initiate. Love. Amen. The Fire of Yod Tetragrammaton descends from the Elohim. all motion within the Universe is perfectly in accord with the Law. whereon Venus assumes Jupiter’s former attribution to Chesed. It is also to be observed that Jupiter is attributed to Chesed. and is a source of Light and Love to others. which wields the current of the Flaming Sword. Jupiter is attributed to Kether on the Heavenly Hexagram. It is also Solar in nature. Atu IX – The Hermit. as we have already seen in the Journey. It is said that the Wheel turns both ways. We are so moved. which forms a basis of all motion. These correspondences speak to the creation and movement of earthly man in Spirit’s Journey. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Kaph and the Planet Jupiter. there is no luck or accidental circumstance. The Forces of the Universe are asserted as necessary in the administration of matters throughout the Planes. The Serpent Power is used by Spirit to move all within the Universe below to manifest the Word. However. When the Eye is rightly focused.Informing”. and Chesed is the source of the Serpent Power of Atu XI which precedes the Mars Force. This is another demonstration that Love is the Law. whose Malkuth contains all worlds below and is the connecting link to the Malkuth of the 30 th Aire). However. The Serpent Power is the purest energy expressed below the Supernal Realm. This Atu is the eleventh of the Atu. This existence of the Nephesch is acknowledged in these statements. the Pentagram is set aright. Amen. the Law below the Supernal Realm is established in Chesed (in part by the Word of the Hierophant). Motion will then be set in accord with the Law. who is the Heavenly Man. the Crown is worn and the Word may be spoken. This correspondence follows through to the Yitziratic Hexagram. created from God and remaining a part of God. This occurs when the Eye of the Childe is focused on the Love of the Goddess which sets the Pentagram aright within the Childe. Liberty and Life of the Crown. Further. as shown by this Atu’s attribution to the Zodiacal Sign of Leo. This may appear to manifest as luck. which emanates the purest energy below the “Abyss”. creates earthly man in His Image. It is said that the Hebrew letter Yod (mentioned in relation to Atu IX) is a symbol of the open Hand of God and potential power. while the Hebrew letter Kaph is a symbol of the Palm or closed Hand of God and the use of power. You know. However. the Macroprosopus produces from Itself the Microprosopus which is a unique yet indivisible part of Itself. And so does the Hermit assist in healing the Womb of the Goddess and reversing the Curse of the Fall of Man. His Sword flames with the Fire of his God. Adam Qadmon. 196 . and so he is moved harmoniously in accord with the Law. The Wheel of Fortune exists in the Womb of the Goddess. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Yod and the Zodiacal Sign of Virgo. This Atu is a glyph of the assertion of magickal power below the Supernal Realm in the administration of the Law. Atu X – Fortune (Wheel of Fortune). He has been shown how to rightly focus the Eye and set the Pentagram aright. We are reminded by the number of the Atu that Spirit is the basis of all manifestation. He dispenses with terrestrial matters in accord with God’s Will. A Holy State of Union always exists. The number 11 signifies magickal power. Yod is the first letter of the Tetragrammaton. Right nourishment. Earthly man is an extension of this. It is also the first letter of the words Yechidah (the Soul of All attributed to Kether) and Ygdrasil (the Name of the Ancient Tree in Kether. Be thou the Hermit! Amen. and is turned by the Hand of God. To the Initiate (symbolized by the Sworded Sphinx).

This Atu describes the qualities and function of this energy. and results in the ultimate fulfillment of the Word in Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation. “Deus et homo”. She is Nuit in Her aspects as the Empress and the All-Mother. This energy is transmitted to Tiphareth. this Atu represents the initiation of man. We have seen the Influence from above. She is also the High Priestess of the Path of Gimel. We are immortal spiritual beings living a human life. As it is written on the back of every Rosy Cross. suffering and dis-ease result. Consider the qualities of Water. [Additional Commentary: These last two sentences are True in all respects until the Childe has attained unto Binah. This energy then appears as Solar energy. that within the Light of the Sun shines the Invisible Light of Kether. Spirit descends through the Living Water. The image is of a Yod as a Fiery Ruby Red Jewel descending upon the center of a Crown (formulated as described in the Ritual of the Crown). the Light of the One True Life. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Lamed. although it may not seem so at times. The energy expressed here is of such a nature as to cause this to occur. The Venus of Libra enforces or administers the Law. God moves us. Innate to the Serpent-Power is the quality of a Woman. not human beings clamoring for a spiritual life. Balance. Spirit produces the human vessels to manifest the Word and serve as God’s Hands on the terrestrial (earthly) plane. When we are given proper perspective. and is moved rightly along the Path which leads to True Wisdom. perfect peace and happiness. totally and with confidence. The Childe’s Eye is then opened to the true perspective and the Childe’s starry heritage. which are educative and engines for truth and beauty. Our lives are dependent on God. Every Childe of Earth wears the Crown and embodies the Six-Rayed Star. The Serpent-Power (which is the “Fire Informing”) has been expressed and is received by Geburah. which is the Royal Path of Initiation and the Way of Return. This continues through the Work of the Holy Guardian Angel. It also promotes Liberation and Initiation. the energy expressed promotes Justice. which connects Geburah to Tiphareth. who sits in perfect equilibrium. There is cause and effect. These cause the changes which produce earthly manifestation. God is man. Spirit illumines the Childe’s mind with the LVX. Amen. The Forces of Nature balance each other – Light and Love. You are truly a Star. pain. and all else that derive from these. which is telling of the workings of Spirit in the context of man. which is ever guiding.Atu VIII – Adjustment (Justice).] This Atu is attributed to the Path of Nun and the Zodiacal Sign of 197 . peace and happiness. We do not move God. reflecting the Light of the Crown. which also is perfectly balanced on the Tree of Life. In so doing. whose Influence illumines the Six-Fold Star and moves man. It is silent and transparent. Life and Death. Progress may then continue along Path of Liberation. Here. Atu XII – The Hanged Man. This explains why the Hanged Man is suspended upside down. This is the Path which leads to true Wisdom. The true perspective generally represents a complete reversal of general human views. which is the Sword of Chesed. She appears in a lower aspect as the Venus of Libra. Every breath is a gift. now appearing as the Mars Force. This action is wholly below the “Abyss”. Every waking moment is partaking of the Sacrament. completely. Spirit manifests through our personalities. we surrender to it – to Divine Providence. Following the Journey down the Tree. including man. Venus is Love. The Universe is in a state of perfect equilibrium. and inspires us. When the Eye is closed to the True Perspective. Harmony and Love. The initiate keeps silence to hear the Word of God. The forces of Life and Death undulate and appear in varying aspects in Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation. Action is now taken to manifest the Word according to the Law. whose Love tempers the Fire of the All-Father. Every Childe of Earth embodies the Tree of Life. Amen. We are reminded. Our thoughts are seeds for our words and deeds. however. The Atu is attributed to Water. Upon High. The Law established in Chesed has been communicated. which moves all things below. You are a watery vessel for Spirit. Atu XIII – Death.

Scorpio. The Path of Nun shows the Angel’s direct influence on the will of man. The Zodiacal Sign of Scorpio is ruled by Mars. This shows the Mars current in a lower aspect moving the will of man. Netzach is attributed to Venus in a lower aspect than spoken of above. Further, Scorpio is the fixed sign of Water. We thus see again a tempering of the Will currents by Love. The Curse of the Fall of Man has caused the Children of Earth to forget their starry heritage. They are over-whelmed by desire and physical sense experience. Physical death assists in perpetuating the Grand Illusion that there is a separation of God and man. There is no such separation. God is with you. You are of God. Set the Pentagram aright, and remember. Let the Eye open and be transformed, as the “old man” dies. Amen. Atu XIV – The Art (Temperance). Here we see the Holy Guardian Angel performing His Holy Works, practicing the Art. The Angel mingles and applies the three forms of energy (Alchemical Mercury, Sulphur and Salt) to create or destroy substance as appropriate. The Powers of the All-Father run through the Angel to manifest the Elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth, which are blind forces Divinely guided. Below Tiphareth, the elements have correspondence to the human senses of sight, taste, smell and touch. All humans are moved in this way. This Atu corresponds to the Path of Samekh, which is perfectly equilibrated on the Tree of Life and connects Tiphareth to Yesod. The Path is attributed to the Zodiacal Sign of Sagittarius, which is ruled by Jupiter. Various correspondences to Jupiter have been noted above. Most simply, we are shown by this attribution the Crown working through the Angel administering the Law. The magickal currents are vibrations. They move as directed in accord with the Law. They have correspondence with different colors and sounds. They combine to create all life and forms that we see. They are at the root of all human consciousness and automatic movement within the human body. The Holy Guardian Angel, who is the Son, is the source of all of our thoughts, words and deeds. [Additional Commentary: The preceding sentence is also True until the Childe has attained unto Binah.] The Angel is always with the Microprosopus, as is God who acts through the Angel. It seems like we act on our own volition. However, we do not. We are always performing Spirit’s work. The Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel comes from realizing your True Self. YHShVH, Yeheshuah. Amen. Atu XV – The Devil. Dispel with all concepts of the Devil. The Devil is the Holy Guardian Angel appearing in a different form to us. The Devil is viewed as our adversary. He represents the forces of nature which seemingly oppose us. However, there is nothing opposing you. Your only opposition is ignorance. The Devil is a symbol of ignorance, and the darkness caused by ignorance. As a result of the Great Curse resulting in the Fall of Man, the Children of Earth have to deal with human desire and the limitations imposed by their physical senses. These create a “ veil” or “mask” of the true workings of Spirit. However, these also can be a source of inspiration to us to apply ourselves to the Great Work. We are shown in this Atu how to set things right. The averse Pentagram is commonly associated with this Atu. This shows the physical senses over the Spirit point of the Pentagram, which is pointing down. This is an indicator that things are not right. The Pentagram must be set aright, with the Spirit point up, showing Spirit presiding over the Elements, which is truly the case as shown above. We are given only one true choice in our human lives, which is to use our lower will to focus our Eye to God. When the Pentagram is averse, the Devil and the demons teach. When the Pentagram is aright, the Holy Guardian Angel sets the course. This Atu is attributed to the Path of Ayin, which connects Tiphareth to Hod. The word “Ayin” means Eye. This Atu sends a message. By using the lower will to rightly focus the Eye and set the Pentagram aright, we may unloose the bonds of ignorance, attain right knowledge and reverse the Great Curse on the Path of Liberation. Amen.

198

Atu XVI – The Tower. Here we see the Mars force in action again, but this time completely below Tiphareth. It is being applied through the lower will to inspire thought. The Mars force promotes Justice and liberation as we have seen. This is always the case, regardless of whether the Holy Guardian Angel of Atu XIV or the Devil of Atu XV teaches. The Mars force encourages the Eye of a Childe to open the true nature of things by “blasting” notions of personal separateness, which is an illusion. This inspires the Childe to rightly focus the Eye to God. It also assists the Childe in setting the Pentagram aright. As noted above, the Childe is given only one real choice, which is to assert the lower will to rightly focus the Eye. You are constantly being guided to do this. As you do this, the “crown” of the false self will be unloosed by the power of the Son, and will fall. The Childe will then begin to attain right knowledge which will change the Childe’s outlook from a materialistic to a Universal perspective. As the tower of the false self is blasted, the Eye is opened to the House of God. Some versions of this Atu depict a man and woman falling from a tower. This is because the Universe as they knew it has been destroyed. They are being placed on the Path of Liberation, which is attained through right knowledge. Darkness prevails until ignorance is dispelled. The bonds of the Great Curse may be lifted if you simply heed the guidance you are receiving, which has its origin in Spirit. We are centers of expression for Spirit. By listening to our Self, and acting accordingly by right use of the lower will, the Eye will open to the House of God and Liberation will come. Amen. Atu IV – The Emperor. Hail unto the Emperor, who rules All. All male figures in the Tarot may be equated to the Man, and all female figures may be equated to the Woman, in their varying aspects. The Male creative energy sets the Law, which is expressed through the Woman. This governs and regulates all aspects of Creation, all circumstances of our lives and all manifestation. Appreciate every day you are given. It is an opportunity to make a difference. Focus the Eye on the Shekinah, which is the Love of the Supernals, and be moved ever so rightly in harmony with the Law. Love is the Law. Love under Will. [Additional Commentary: So it is below the Holy One, but above there is Nuit’s Chalice whose Love is the Source of Will. Love is Truly the Law.] The Emperor represents the Will of God, and one of the three forms of energy known as Alchemical Sulphur, which appears as the Serpent-Power and the Mars Force. This Atu is attributed to the Zodiacal Sign of Aries, which is ruled by Mars. It is also attributed to the Path of Tzaddi which connects Netzach to Yesod. We are thus shown the Mars force moving deeper into the lower planes, causing change in accord with the Law. The Sun is exalted in Aries. We are thus shown the nobility of the Crown tingeing the energy in such a way to always promote the Justice, balance, harmony, Love and liberation spoken of above. All words and numbers are of God. All things are an expression of God. Every aspect of Creation is in service of Spirit in the Great Work. There are no exceptions. Take note of this. Humbly adore God’s creation. Use the opportunity you are being given to serve rightly. Look to your God to move you in your Holy Work. In the process, sing and praise the Holy Names, and glorify God in all that you do. Amen. Atu XVIII – The Moon. The Moon reflects the Light of the Sun. Upon high, we see the Moon of Atu II reflecting the Light of the Invisible Sun of Kether. In this Atu, we see the Moon in a lower aspect reflecting the Light into the lower planes. This Atu is attributed to the Zodiacal Sign of Pisces and the Path of Qoph. Pisces is the mutable sign of Water. This shows communication. It is the last sign of the Zodiac and a Gateway to Divine Life. The Path of Qoph connects Netzach to Malkuth. It is the first Path seen in the Journey directly connecting to Malkuth, which is the abode of Malkah - the Daughter. The word Qoph refers to the back to the head, suggesting the potencies of the cerebellum. It is through the operation of the brain that Spirit communes with the Daughter. Upon being born upon this earth, we are given a body, which is animal in nature. We are also given an animal soul called the

199

Nephesch in Qabalistic terminology. The animal in all of us must be trained to reverse the Curse of the Fall of Man. This is done by taming desire and training the physical senses. This is taught by the Royal Art & Science of Magick, and the Yoga Sciences. It begins by using the lower will to rightly focus the Eye on the Love of the Supernals. Right knowledge then comes to set the Pentagram aright. Even the lower Moon illumines the Path of Liberation, which is shown on the Atu. There is darkness if the Eye is not rightly focused. Anubis, which is lower aspect of Thoth, guides through this darkness. Dispel ignorance. Focus the Eye on Love. You are being shown the Way. In so doing, you assist the Light of the Son to rise in the hearts of man. Amen. Atu XIX – The Sun. Hail Heru-Ra-Ha, our Lord the Sun! Hail unto the Lord of Light, Love, Liberty and Life! Blessed be Thy Holy Names unto the Age of Ages. Here we see the Son and the Daughter playing together under the Light of the Sun. Their Life is His Life. When a Childe issues forth from the Supernals as the Microprosopus, the Childe is given a starry matrix. The Childe initially embodies a Tree of Life similar to the Supernal Parents but on a Microcosmic basis. This has been referred to in other writings issued by the Sanctuary as the “Little Tree”. The Childe also wears a Natal Crown as described in the Ritual of the Crown. The Crown is ever One, and cannot be divided. The White and Black Pillars of the Little Tree represent the Son and the Daughter. They are ever in perfect Union within the Childe, and move under the authority of their Supernal Parents, as shown by the Crown upon the Childe’s head and the Middle Pillar of the Little Tree. The countenance of the Childe, which manifests as the Childe’s personality, is an expression of Spirit, as is all life and all manifestation here on earth. These gifts are given as tools for Spirit to guide its Children to perform the Holy Work, to reverse the Curse of the Fall of Man, to “break” the Little Tree, which results in a temporary embodiment of the Great Tree and then even this is “broken” as the Childe becomes the Mother and wholly embodies Her Essence. Once this occurs, the Childe becomes Compassion, Love and Understanding, and works as a Compassionate Witness with no desire. And so may the Great Curse be lifted, and you may truly enter Eden in the Womb of the Great Mother. Amen. Atu XX – The Aeon (Judgement). Let the trumpets sound, and the Word of the Lord of the Aeon be heard! Arise Children of Earth in the Knowledge and Conversation of Thee. May the Breath of the Holy One fill you with Life. The Holy Spirit manifests through you, and the Holy Fire moves thee. It is time for change. Hear thou the Word. It is as soft as a whisper and yet louder than a lion’s roar. Be transformed. Be rightly moved in the Holy Work. You have been shown how to do this. The choice is a simple one. Rightly focus the Eye. Allow it to open to Spirit and the workings of Spirit through all that you see. The Holy Spirit and Will of God runs through you. There is no time to waste. Every moment is an opportunity. Use each one wisely and well. Our magick is practiced through the symbols we are given, and how we live our lives. Our work is transforming. As we evolve as sources of Light and Love, those around us are so evolved and transformed. This is how the Great Work is accomplished. This is how a new race of men and woman are created to perform God’s work here on earth. Each one of us makes a difference. The Blessings of the Most High confer greater gifts than any other thing we which may acquire here on Earth. They bestow true peace and Eternal Joy. Every one of us is equipped to perform and accomplish this Work. There are no exceptions. This is why we are here, to perform this Work. It is our Holy Duty to do so. No other responsibility compares. Your life circumstance, no matter what it may be, has been arranged to foster this. Look to your God to be moved rightly along the Royal Path, and be awakened to Life on the higher planes. Amen.

Atu XXI – The Universe. Hail unto the Daughter, who Dances with Heru-Ra-Ha. We see in this Atu the completion of the formula of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH). The Dancer is the Fool, who has completed Its Journey into Manifestation. Just as all male figures in the Tarot may be equated with the Man, and all female figures may be equated to the Woman, all figures in the Tarot may be equated as expressions of Spirit in Its Journey. The first is the last. The Daughter is the Mother, but She is also the Son and Father. She is a Crowned Childe of Earth, a Magickal Childe. She dances showing a celebration of Life throughout all planes. Every moment is an opportunity to express the Light and Love of the Crown. Appreciate every moment. Use each one wisely to express Love under Will according to your magickal formula. In so doing, you will find Wisdom in Understanding, and enter the Holy Cities of God. This Atu is attributed to both Saturn and Earth. It is a culmination of all the other Atu. Forms are defined and made heavy as they manifest here on Earth. These forms must, however, change and return to their original Essence in all due time. We thus see in this Atu the revolution of the formula of the Tetragrammaton, and the ultimate redemption of the Daughter. This will eventually occur. However, you are given a great opportunity in this life-time to evolve as a Childe of God and come to know the Crown through direct experience. As you do so, your Eye will be opened to the nature of your Great Work and how best to perform and accomplish it. Glorify God in all that you do. Use what you have been given, and may your Eye open unto your God, who is your True Self and the Soul of the Universe. Amen. Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation shows that All is of God, including all movement and manifestation in the Universe. There are no exceptions. All serve God. The Way of Return involves the Childe of Earth coming to realize the Divinity that resides within, which causes a transformation of the Childe to be something more than human. May this story of Spirit’s Journey into Manifestation assist you in the Way of Return. Unto Thee Nuit! Ateh Gibor Le’Olam Adonai. Amen!!! Love is the Law, Love under Will.

Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. We speak of the Holy Trinity, most exalted. This is the Face of Spirit. This is given in the context of the Thelemic Pantheon, as declared in the Book of the Law. Our Lady of the Stars, Nuit, is the circumference of the Great Circle of the Universe. Hadit, who is the Secret Center of All, appears within Her. There is She and He. There are no others besides Them. All are aspects of Them. Nuit and Hadit formulate the first Sephira Kether of the Ancient Holy Tree in Kether named Ygdrasil. Her symbol is the Circle. His symbol is the point. They are in Union. Nuit manifests Hadit, and Hadit manifests Nuit. Their symbols combined form the Sigil of the Sun. This is the Invisible Sun of Kether, which is the Source of All. It is also our Sun. There is Love. There is Light. There is Nuit. There is Hadit. All come from Them. Nuit and Hadit have manifested a Childe. This is the Crowned and Conquering Childe. This is Ra-Hoor-Khuit, in His Active Form. This is Hoor-Pa-Kraat, in His Passive Form. This is Heru-RaHa. This is the God who Sitteth upon the Throne in Kether in this New Aeon. This is the Crown. Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit form the Holy Trinity of the Thelemic Pantheon, most exalted. Nuit and Hadit move Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The Holy Trinity, most exalted, move all below. They manifest the Father, the Mother, the Son and the Daughter. They are the Holy Spirit. They move and form All. The Holy Trinity, most exalted, manifests the Ancient Holy Tree in Kether. This Tree, whose Name is Ygdrasil, is of Them. The Malkuth of Ygdrasil contains all Worlds below. Each of the Sephira below contains a Tree of Life. The Tree of Life in the last Sephira Malkuth manifests the Physical Plane, which in Qabalistic terms is called Assiah. The Malkuth of the Tree of Life in Malkuth (which is the Malkuth of the 30th Aire) is contained in the Malkuth of Ygdrasil. Thus, the First Tree contains the Last Tree, and the Circle of the Universe is completed within the Womb of Nuit. The Holy Trinity manifests the Universe. The Holy Trinity manifests Malkuth. The Holy Trinity manifests Earth, and all within Earth. The Holy Trinity is the Soul of All.

Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

All below proceeds from the Holy Square of the One, which is the Crown. Yet the Crown is formulated and moved by the Chalice, which is the True Holy Grail. Even the Cup of Babalon the Beautiful is a lower aspect of the Chalice. The Holy Grail is hereby revealed. Nuit and Hadit formulate the Chalice. The lower apex of the Chalice formulates Kether, and the Crowned Childe sitting on the Throne in Kether. Thus we see the lower apex of the Chalice intersecting with the upper apex of the Blade, and all proceeding from the Chalice. The Chalice is the source of the Crown, and all below. The Crown is One, and cannot be divided. The Chalice Illumines your Natal Crown. As explained in another paper received and issued by the Sanctuary on this Holy Day (see “The Unveiling of Nuit – The Star Goddess”), Nuit formulates and moves even Hadit (the Male aspect of the Universe), as well as Ra-Hoor-Khuit. Thus we behold the Chalice as the Womb of Nuit, from which all Life and Light flow from Her Love. All are aspects of Nuit. There is No-Thing in the Universe which is not of and from Her. Her Soul is the Yechidah, which is in all that was, is and is to come. The 30 Aires (or Aethyrs) show but aspects of Her Soul. Behold Nuit, our Beloved Lady of the Stars, in Her Infinite Holiness and the Secret of the Holy Grail. Behold the Mystery of the First Aire, called LIL.

THE ARROW
(Most Holy, Showing the Way)
Issued by the Sanctuary of Thoth On behalf of The Great Order of the Universe
Copyright © 2008 Sanctuary of Thoth. All rights reserved.

31/31 31 Do what thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law. We now speak of the Arrow. On the Way of Return, while the Childe is Becoming, the Arrow points up. This shows the right focus of the Eye, which is so important on the Royal Path of Initiation. We are reminded that, when the Eye is rightly focused on Divine Love, the Angels teacheth. However, when the Eye is focused down on animal desires, the demons teacheth. This is a Mystery related to the Paths of Samech and Ayin, corresponding with Atus XIV and XV of the Tarot, or the Book of Thoth. The Angel of Atu XIV is also the Devil of Atu XV, but in another form. You determine who teaches you. This is the sole choice you are given in your holy life. The animal will (attributed to the Sephira Netzach) directs the Eye. Once the animal will has been cleansed and purified, and consecrated to the Great Work, it is placed wholly in Service of Spirit to at all times to serve as a holy king in charge of your animal body. This is the work of the First Order through the Work of the Childe of Netzach. Once the animal within (which includes the body, the automatic consciousness, thought/emotion and the lower will) has been tamed and placed in Service of Spirit, the work is to link these animal attributes to their Source. This is the portal work of the Dominis Liminis. The Work of the Second Order then begins. The Arrow must be perfectly balanced and “shot” into the Heart of Tiphareth to come to know your True Self (which is the Source of your True Will). Once your Eye is opened to your True Self, True Will is revealed. You then must learn to do only True Will (which seems to be “struggle” at first) and wash All with Love, which balances Will and purifies the Childe for the work to come. This is the Work of the Second Order. The Childe must be made pure and perfect for the Work to come. All lower aspects of the Childe must be further purified and consecrated wholly to the Great Work. At this stage of Becoming, the Childe still embodies the Little Tree. This is a distinguishing feature of an Adept versus a Member of the Holy Third Order. Even a Childe of Chesed embodies the Little Tree. To cross the Great Abyss, this Little Tree must be broken by the Hand of God. As indicated in other papers of the Sanctuary, the Great Abyss, which separates man and God, is but an Illusion. It is the Grand Illusion created by the Fall of Man. The serpent of desire must be completely tamed, and Cerberus (the Hell Hound, who before this stage of evolution may be perceived as a foe) must be placed in right Service of the Childe, so All is seen as Divine and Holy, even Desire. There is No-One, No-Thing which is not in Service of God. Behold the Glory of God.

208

As the Childe’s Eye is opened to these Holy Mysteries and the Childe is washed by Love, the Little Tree is “broken” and the Childe temporarily embodies only the Great Tree. The Childe is then beheld as part of the Body of God. This was always the case. However, the Childe is now different, as the Childe no longer embodies the Little Tree. A transformation now occurs as evolution progresses. The Childe’s vessel is emptied and filled with the Prana or Essence of the Great Mother in Binah, which is Babalon the Beautiful in the context of the Thelemic Pantheon. When this occurs, even the Great Tree is dissolved, and the Childe Truly Becomes wholly of the Mother, Pure and Perfect, without any “taint” of that which is below Binah. This admits to the Supernal Planes, and to certain Aires (or Aethyrs). We are now moved to step aside from the present discussion to review the importance of the right use of the Aires. They are used on the Way of Return to annihilate the remaining aspects of the self of the Childe in Being. These remaining aspects are Binah and Chokmah so the Childe may attain unto Kether and enter into Being. The Aires show aspects of the Yechidah, which is the Soul of All. In the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation, the Childe of Geburah is guided to begin working with the 30 Aires. It is suggested that this is best done using the versions in The Enochian Magick of Dr. John Dee by Geoffrey James. These versions are the least corrupted, and the corresponding English translations (which tell are story) are most true to form. There are three Aires attributed to each Sephira. The 30 th, 29th and 28th Aires are attributed to Malkuth, and so on up the Tree. The 9 th, 8th and 7th Aires are attributed to Binah. As the Childe comes to receive True Will from these exalted Planes, the 48 Gates of Understanding are opened, one at a time, to the Cities of Wisdom. The 48 Gates are opened by rightly working with the Angelic Keys. Of the 48 Gates, 18 are opened by right use of the First Angelic Key which precedes the Calls of Keys 2 through 18. These correspond to the Crown, the Solar Tides and the Solar Cycles (as shown by their Elemental attributions). The other 30 Gates are opened by right use of the Second Angelic Key which precedes the Call of the 19 th Key, which is the Call of the 30 Aires. These admit to aspects of the Yechidah. Wisdom is found in Understanding. The Fire of Chokmah runs through the Childe of Binah. This “burns” the Childe of Binah, who evolves as the True Scarlet Woman, until the “dust” of the Childe which entered the City of the Pyramids is burnt to a White ASh. (In Hebrew “ASh” means fire.) As evolution progresses, there is another transference of Prana. The Woman Becomes the Man, attributed to Chokmah. The vessel of the Childe is filled with His Essence, replacing Hers. The Childe then Becomes a Holy King. The “dust” of the Childe is placed in an Urn in the Tomb of the All-Father. This is accomplished, in part, by the Work of the 6 th, 5th and 4th Aires. In the course of this Work, the Arrow is beheld in the 5 th Aire as pointing down, but this is not fully realized as of yet by the Childe of Chokmah. The Urn is now beheld as an evolution of the Cup of Babalon and a lower aspect of the Chalice, spoken of in other papers of the Sanctuary. The Light and Love of the Chalice cleanse and purify the last remaining aspects of the self of the Childe, until these aspects are completely annihilated and set aside in the Tomb. In experiencing this Mystery, there is True Death of the self. As Becoming ceases in Being, the Star of the Childe, which has been the source of all prior incarnations, is consumed by the Fire of Hadit, in the Invisible Sun of Kether. The Childe comes to Know His Star as none other than Kether. The Sigil of Aemeth, which is the Seal of the God of Truth,

209

burns brightly in the Core of the Childe. The Being of the Childe is beheld to be that of God, and the last Oath of the Childe of Kether is rightly taken. There is more. Although the Childe has entered into Being, Initiation has not come to an end. There is one more Step to take, which is to realize even the Source of Kether, and how IT is formulated and moved. This is discussed in another paper issued by the Sanctuary entitled “The Blade & The Chalice”. The Chalice is the True Source of All. The Light and Love of the Chalice formulate all positive or Male aspects of the Universe to show the Female aspects. She is the Circle, and He is the ubiquitous center of All. In the context of the Thelemic Pantheon, She is Nuit, He is Hadit, and their Union produces Ra-Hoor-Khuit, the Crowned and Conquering Childe and Lord of this New Aeon, who is enthroned in Kether. Even the Chalice is formulated by Nuit. All Light, all Love, all Life flow from Her and formulate in Her Womb. Nuit is Not, or “LA” in Hebrew. Thus, Initiation comes to an end in Not-Being. There is No-God, No-One, No-Thing which is not an Aspect of Nuit. True Initiation is attained in Not-Being. There is No Oath for this final Step, as there is no positive manifestation of the Step ever being taken. A Childe of Nuit manifests Her, and No-One else. We are all Her Children. We are the Children of Nuit. The First is the Last, as shown by the numeric equations associated with the Work of the Childe of Earth (0=0) and the Work of the Childe of Nuit (also 0=0). After Becoming, we enter into Being, and after Being we enter into Not-Being. The Arrow truly points down when beheld from Above, as the Chalice is always open and the Light and Love of the Chalice flow through nurturing us with Life. This shows through symbolism how She gives Herself to Children. We are Her Holy Living Creatures. The Arrow must point up, perfectly, before it may Truly be beheld as pointing down. By rightly focusing the Eye, performing your Great Work, and giving your self to Her, the Great Initiation may be attained, and Initiation may come to an end. As Nuit gives Her-Self to Her Children, so does a Childe of Nuit who attains unto Her continually manifest Her in performing Her Work, which is to redeem Her Children and Heal Her Womb, ever Glorying Her Holy Name. Praise, Glory and Worship, Love and Devotion unto Thee Nuit. Amen. Love is the Law, Love under Will.

In some respects, it completes the Sanctuary’s System of Initiation, when taken in context of the other papers issued to date (referring here to the date this paper was received and completed). Further, it should be noted that, although Initiation comes to an end for a Childe of Nuit who has entered into Not-Being, the Eye is continually opened unto Her Glory in Infinite Ways, as She is Infinity and Her Wisdom is Boundless.

Reference is made to the Yitziratic Hexagram. which is the 19 th Key (varied as appropriate by inserting the Name of the Aire at the proper point in the Call). which is still dark as we have not yet moved in the present journey to the Tree of Life in Yesod.

This is the Great Order of the Universe as shown by the arrangement of the Aires and the Sephiroth.

This continues to be the case up the Trees of Life until we come to the Tree of Life in Kether. The 27th Aire (ZAA).

Crowned and Conquering going forth performing God’s Great Work in ever increasing harmony with the forces of the Universe. However. Will is Mercury.

We perform our work. the Childe’s Star is consumed by the Fire of Hadit. and the Childe attains to the True Self through Selflessness. As an aspect of the Goddess. as the lower is washed and evolves into the Higher. We are also reminded that. It is in the nature of the Work to teach and to Heal. The Work is not easy.Work. love and devotion to the Holy Names of God. the Glory of God in the Highest may shine. to the subject matter of the Work. but what is paid is of no value and what is gained is God’s Embrace and Love. The tasks are not always easy or fun. and then into the Mother and the Father (the Woman and the Man). Such is always the case. Although the Aires are Gates of Understanding to be consecutively opened by those of the Third Order to enter the Cities of Wisdom and further Illumine the Natal Crown. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. Every one of us is important. So does the Son. The 19th Aire (POP). This is attained by loving God in all you do from the simplest most miserable little task to the most important. and allow your prayers to be answered. Love is purified and exalted. Beyond this. or is there a higher purpose? In the absence of the latter. The Sun brings Light and Life to man. in so doing. This is the price all must pay to Reverse the Curse.

The 18th Aire (ZEN). from this perspective. and the Glory is 240 . our lives seem almost meaningless. and there are ordeals to be endured before man regains their Starry heritage. they always speak to Love and to Death. the Sun in the Aires! We are reminded that the Aires concern all levels of Initiation. The Angels sing praise. You have the ability to do that exactly where you are in your lives. This role may be fulfilled in private/silence or publically. What are we to do with our miserable lives? Are we to patch together brief moments of pleasure and happiness. Perform every act to the Glory of your God and. Amen. which is Supernal Love. Comfort and Bliss in Thee. There is no need to run away to a monastery up in the mountains to utterly devote your self to God and God’s work. Your work at home and elsewhere are your tasks at your monastery. The Childe of Earth evolves into the Virgin Daughter. which is so simple and so little understood for the Love we speak of is Divine Love. We find Eternal Joy. the Aires speak to All.

To man. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. so the Sun may proceed with the Blessings of All above. we learn this late in life. there is nothing besides a “little pile of dust” which enters the City of the Pyramids in Binah. which is bestowed with the Great Curse. The Eye of God is always upon you. Sacrifice is perceived as a part of Initiation. And so the King speaks the Word and brings Justice and Liberation to man. it is God’s life to be lived as God so Wills. This may be the case. This. when the Little Tree is broken. There is no will besides God’s Will. proper and Righteous. and so is Justice. Perfect balance is required for Initiation. 241 . who becomes Nemo – the Childe is no longer a man but an embodiment of the Great Mother in Binah and part of the Body of God. This is how We act. There is Unity in the Supernal Realm and so there is right balance – perfect equilibrium – at all times. There is no desire but God’s Desire.ever more exalted as Initiation progresses and we move through the Aires closer to the First. and a great deal must be dealt with to transcend the karma. therefore. words and deeds. Look to God’s Face. Initiation – these are the themes. all thoughts.“nor do I demand aught in sacrifice”. The Childe’s Initiation proceeds by serving as a receptacle of the Fire of the All-Father. The Holy Work must not be left undone! No-thing is sacrificed if what is done is in accord with the Law. As Nuit says in Liber AL I:58 . Be the Sun. and then the Childe is moved by God’s Will accordingly. and generally results in a further Illumination of the Angel’s Crown and an elevation of the Angel to a Higher Being (who may be appointed thereafter to further work with the new Childe of Binah but as counsel or a Secret Chief). Amen. What then is sacrifice? As we move along the Chosen Way. the Work of an Initiate may at times seem selfish. and due penalty when so appropriate. The 17th Aire (TAN). or not. Death is followed by Life. as the Childe expresses Will and Chia – the Life Force. We get our just rewards. There is no getting away with anything. Treading the Royal Path of Initiation requires courage and determination to do what must be done. There is a human choice to direct the Eye to God. There may be “things” which we must let go along the Way. And so it is for the Initiate who has entered the King’s Chamber in Tiphareth and become a Young King or Queen. if this is so directed in the course of the Work. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. once we rise above Yitzirah. in that the Initiate has a clear course of action which sometimes seems to not take into account the opinions of others. It is best that they never get out of balance. However. honesty and fair dealing are always required in all aspects of life. All is of God. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. and Thy Will be done. Resolve everything. The remnants of once was is the “dust” of the Childe. into the standard of your True Will. what is to be let go is not of man’s will but a matter of Natural Law. we must move rightly in accord with the Word. Amen. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Tiphareth. The animal will directs the Eye. Perfect balance. represents an accomplishment of the Great Work of the Angel. Justice. It is. There is direct correspondence with Kether – the Natal Crown shines brightly. However. and so the pile of dust which enters the City of the Pyramids is burnt to a White ASh and placed in an Urn in the Tomb of the All-Father. We must calculate rightly which is a part of right action. Your life is not your life. karma is transcended. There are accounts which must be maintained and balanced. There is no one to cheat but your self. Nature is just but not necessarily fair. Amen. There is a sacrifice of the Holy Guardian Angel when the Little Tree is broken and the Childe is set upon the Throne of the Mother. The Fire and Water create perfect balance on the Middle Pillar. however. As it is said. Unfortunately. The Universe responds to the Word of the King spoken in the Voice of the Master. The 16th Aire (LEA). for many of us. but there really is no-thing to sacrifice. Truth.

The 14th Aire (UTA). The Holy Mother awaits Her wicked little Children who She nourishes with Light and Love. All is One. The Little Tree appears to create distance between man and God. You simply need to take the walk. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. The former has simply forgotten ITS Name. Amen. Initiation is a simple process once the basic tenets are grasped. 5 and 6 on the Tree of Life in Geburah. words and deeds. There will be ordeals. We see here another Spirit of God in a purer Aire. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. However. So take them! Fulfill the roles which have been appointed for you by fulfilling your Holy Duties to God. The Childe will Return by action or by physical death. Work is required to overcome the Grand Illusion. We behold God in our own motion – our thoughts. There is no 242 . Yea. but how few actually take action to further their own redemption. It all seems so hard. but cast out – there is no separation. We see God acting through the evolving Childe who becomes a more exalted and transparent vessel for the Light and Love of God to shine through. In casting down such as in the Great Fall of Man. You just need to clean-up to get to the Pure Center. Water and Fire are balanced in the Air. all emphasizing the need to equilibrate the Supernal Energies as they flow through the Childe. However. We are One and come from None. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Geburah. We behold the God of Change – the God of All motion in the Universe. The Grand Illusion of the Abyss which separates God and man is beheld. As Chesed is Mercy. The 13th Aire (ZIM). with all of its animal desires. but you must endure with courage to the Glory of God.The 15th Aire (OXO). Each Oath is consistent with all your other obligations to mankind. we also behold a coming together on the Return Journey through the Aires. Do what must be done! This is the Law of Thelema – Do True Will. Geburah reflects the Element of Fire on the Tree of Life. No one is really harmed by the Great Curse as there really is no one other than God. We are reminded here that the Childe is a Holy Vessel. Who moves you Childe? Is it not God?! We turn our Eye unto Thee but it is Thee who so moves the Eye when the animal Childe has been placed in service of Thee. There appears to be that which is above and that which is below. but it is not. as Chokmah expresses IT. Then it is simply a matter of doing – abiding by the Holy Oaths. and nothing else. The Childe of Chokmah expresses that Will in all the Childe does. express IT. Geburah is Severity. The language of the Holy Oaths is simple enough. We behold Babalon manifesting that which is below Her and Her Womb in which all change below occurs. Unswerving devotion to the Work is emphasized as the Eye always remains on the Work as these exalted states of consciousness are attained. The Childe’s body then evolves as a Pure Vessel. Amen. through which the Fire and Will of God will run though untainted. You are NEMO with dirt on your clothes. The experience of the adventure is heightened by the interposition of the animal soul in the Childe. Through the Childe’s Work. the Little Tree is imposed upon man (which is nothing other than a reflection of the Great Tree) to be overcome. the Angel is God descending to work with you. The Holy Guardian Angel appears to stand between God and man as a Guard to those who may “cross the Abyss”. While we behold the Sword of Chesed extending into Assiah. the Childe may Reverse the Great Curse and reclaim His Starry heritage. No man or NEMO is initiated as a Childe of Binah only when the Little Tree is gone and the embodied Starry structure is recognized to be none other than God’s. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. there really is no above or below. There are multiple aspects of this Aire. A Childe of Geburah takes the Oath to do only True Will. to see if the Childe has the strength to overcome the animal within and perform the Work. Your voices carry great power if only you can learn to speak Truth. Liberation is just around the corner. The Childe will eventually be redeemed. action is required of man to do this. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Geburah. man and God are One.

Amen. support and Love your Brothers and Sisters. it is said the Aires contain the Knowledge of the Aeons and form the Robe of the High Priestess. Additional Commentary: The Aires are now seen as an entirely separate Initiatory System into the Female of the Universe that complements the Initiation Process of a Member of the Holy Third Order into the Male-Spiritual aspects of the Universe. Let the Power of Discrimination be sharpened so you see through God’s Eye. It is the perspective of the Aire which “flavors” the response. Purity comes from doing only True Will and Loving All as God. and especially your charges. The quality of the Aires can. be communicated to all the Children of Earth. And so the Word flows into manifestation through our thoughts. Therefore. wearing the Natal Crown as a Mighty King or Queen of God. we fulfill our Holy Duties and promote Universal harmony. our appointed roles to fulfill. the Power to Act is something which evolves in those utterly devoted to God’s Work and the Great White Brotherhood. as the Childe works with the Female from the inception of the Initiation Process. and may the Blessings and Power of God be with you. As magickal and spiritual evolution progresses. God and man are One. so that you may be moved ever so rightly along the Chosen Way. and vice versa. Work for God. By serving as a Source of Light and Love to our charges. all unfolds. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 7. the Sword (or Wand) Flames and the Word is spoken in the Voice of the Master. That Little Tree which you embody simply has to be shed. Most Exalted. Therefore.difference between us upon High. who then is prepared to be set upon the Throne of the Great Mother. Everyone’s efforts are important. The Word establishes the Law. Allow the Love and Light of God to continually purify and consecrate you to the Great Work. that is in accord with the Law and spoken by God (at times through the Childe) carries with it the Power of God. the power to see and dispose of things according to God’s Will evolves. Hence. Man is One. We all have our Work and our various roles 243 . There is division below the Supernal Planes and Unity above Yitzirah. Any such operation would be carefully guided by the Angel so only those Aires most appropriate to complete the alchemical operation are experienced in proper sequence and at the right times. 8 and 9 on the Tree of Life in Chesed. And so Vir evolves into Puella. We all have our gardens to tend to. who is Not. speak rightly. You see God’s purpose which gives meaning. The Eye opens by God’s Hand. which is the initial subject of Initiation. the Childe may speak in the Voice of the Master in furtherance of the Great Work. Similarly.the work of man is secondary and is only important once placed in the context of the Great Work. but our Work and life circumstances differ. words and deeds. all as God. We practice Magick through how we lead our lives. and is communicated down the Tree and though the Planes. an infinite number of subjects may be addressed. to rid your consciousness of the Yitziratic aspects that cause you to perceive a separation between God and man.

We are all the Sons and Daughters of Nuit and Hadit. We are all equal under God. though the Male and not so much the Female appears to be the subject of the experiments. The Aires may also be used to affect a magickal/mystickal alchemy within a Childe who is an Adept before they are used to open 30 of the 48 Gates of Understanding. This would vary from Childe to Childe based on the Childe’s starry make-up. the foreshadowing of the future. As we see through All. In so doing. The 12th Aire (LOE). The Spoken Word carries Great Divine Power when the Crown is worn. Within each Aire. for only right speech which is furtherance of the Great Work. The Aires are also used to deepen the perspective of the Childe of Nuit. When the Sword flames with the Fire of God. the Male aspects show the Female aspects.

the Ruach purified to such a degree that it is now being perceived to be the Ruach Elohim. There may seem to be. She is still the Daughter. up or down. The Ceremony shown on Atu VI entitled the Lovers now occurs. the Childe leaps with Love. And is not the initial source of all illusion the Moon. Every expression of your being is God expressing Itself through you. The Virgin Daughter is being prepared. There is the matter of the Little Tree. and the Holy Guardian Angel (which 244 . There is no personal will or action. Consider the ordeals man has experienced over time in service of God. The Childe is no longer “human” strictly speaking but a Divine vessel. The 10th Aire (ZAX). as she still embodies the Little Tree. You and God are ever One. and the Signs of the Work have changed to be that of the Babe of the Abyss. The NOX formula saves. The Childe has been made Chaste. However. The Little Tree is broken. We see the Supernal Triad taking the Childe through the Abyss and into Binah. The Mighty King or Queen has evolved into a Perfect Childe. we truly only have one real purpose in this life. The Balances have been attained. Amen. Thus. the more God will evolve that being and reveal the Holy Mysteries. Let us consider then that the Little Tree is a reflection of the Great Tree. There is only “dust” of the Childe at this point in the Work. 2 and 3 on the Tree of Life in Chesed. the Tree has been purified by Love and consecrated by Will. even the Great Tree falls. What precedes thought is the Intuition of the Neschamah. there are no exceptions. The Yitziratic aspects of the Childe have now been “buffed” . the Childe must dispense with this illusion. Serve God and God shall serve you. To “cross the Abyss”. Move rightly through them as part of your Great Work. However. But let us remember that the Abyss is the Grand Illusion which separates man and God. which must be broken before the Childe may first embody the Great Tree. as the Childe’s vessel is drained and is filled with the Essence of the Great Mother. who shall make the Childe part of Her Holy Essence. but a shedding of any remaining human aspects to allow the necessary transformations to occur and the Childe to be exalted and rise in the Sign of Mater Triumphant. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 1. to the Glory of God. As it has been said. The Childe now stands at its edge. You embody God and so they will respond to you. The next Aire shall take the Childe deep into the Abyss. which is to serve as a Holy Vessel for God and to perform God’s Work. Ordeals are opportunities. It is our sole function to do so. ever with the Eye to God to guide. The human ego is seen as purely Divine expression. The Eye must be rightly focused to avoid distraction and illusion. Use them as such. However. We all bear the Holy Grail. the Childe realizing all being to be wholly Divine. it creates an illusion of separateness. leaping into the Arms of the Great Mother in Binah. There is a separation of God and man only in the consciousness of man. the leap does not necessitate a fall. As a reflection. Some Children may be more evolved than others. A Jupiter Talisman is prepared during the course of the Work of the Childe of Chesed to purify and consecrate the Childe (which is the true focus of the preparation of the Talisman) as Pure and Perfect. This Aire is about the Spheres numbered 4. However. Additional Commentary. Hence is it said that the answer precedes the question. The more you devote your being to God. We are the Blood and Life of God here on Earth. for what formulates the question in the mind of the Childe already has the answer to communicate. the only choice is how to focus the Eye.
