Chapter:

ו 6 Vav, The Lovers

Numbers

1.     We have entered into the empire of High Magic.    

2.     We have entered into the laboratory of High Magic.

3.     We have entered the world of will and love.

4.     To enter the amphitheatre of Cosmic Science, we need to steal the fire from the devil.

5.     The lover should steal the light from the darkness.

6.     We need to practice Sexual Magic intensely with our spouse.    

7.     We need to reconquer the blazing sword of Eden.

8.     To invoke the Gods, we need to know the mathematical numbers of the stars.

9.     Symbols are the clothes of numbers.

10.    Numbers are the living entities of the internal worlds.

11.    Planetary numbers produce immediate and powerful results.

12.    One can work from a distance with the stars.

13.    Mathematical numbers powerfully act upon the physical world.

14.    These numbers should be written on seven different tables.

15.    When one is going to perform sidereal magic, one draws a circle on the ground (one and a half meters in diameter) and places the sign of the pentagram with the two inferior vertices pointing towards the outside of the precinct, and the superior vertex inwards.

16.    In the center of the circle one places the table with the number of the corresponding planet.

17.    Thus all the gods of the planet with which one is working will attend.

18,    Before beginning every magical ceremony with the stars, one needs to conjure the earth, fire, water, and the air with their corresponding exorcisms.

Exorcism of Water

19.     Fiat firmamentum in medio aquarum et separet aquas ab aquis, quae superius sicut quae inferius, et quae inferius sicut quae superius ad perpetranda miracula rei unius. Sol ejus pater est, Luna mater et ventus hanc gestavit in utero suo, ascendit a terra ad coelum et rursus a chelo in terram descendit. Exorciso te, creatura aquae, ut sis mihi speculum Dei vivi in operibus ejus, et fons vitae, et ablutio pecatorum. Amen.

Exorcism of Fire

20.    One exorcises the fire by throwing into it salt, incense, white resin, camphor, and sulphur, pronouncing three times the three names of the genii of fire:

Michael, King of the Sun and of the Ray

Samael, King of the Volcanoes

Anael, Prince of the Astral Light

Exorcism of Air

21.     One exorcises the air by blowing towards the four cardinal points, and saying:    

Spiritus Dei ferebatur super aquas, et inspiravit in faciem hominis spiraculum vitae. Sit Michael dux meus, et Sabtabiel servus meus, in luce et per lucem. Fiat verbum halitus meus, et imperabo spiritibus aeris hujus, et refrenabo equos solis voluntate cordis mei, et cogitatione, mentis meae et nutu ocul’ dextri. Exorciso igitur te, creatura aeris, per Pentagrammaton, et in nomine Tetragrammaton, in quibus sunt voluntas firma et fides recta. Amen. Sela, fiat. So be it.

Exorcism of the Earth

22.     The earth is exorcised by sprinkling water upon it, by blowing upon it and by using fire; the proper perfumes of the day must be used, and the prayer of the Gnomes must be recited:

Prayer of the Gnomes

23.     Oh thou invisible King who has taken the earth as thy support and who has weakened the abysses in order to fill them with thine omnipotence; Thou whose name makes the canopies of the world tremble; Thou who makes the seven metals within the veins of the stone flow; Sovereign of Seven Lights; Remunerator of the subterranean workers, take us up unto the longing air and into the Kingdom of Clarity. We keep vigil and work without rest; we search and linger for the twelve stones of the Holy City and for the talismans that are hidden within them, and for the pole of loadstone that passes through the core of the world. Lord, Lord, Lord, have pity on those who suffer, expand our hearts, disclose and elevate our heads, dignify us, Oh stability and movement; Oh day, shroud of the night; Oh obscurity, veiled by the light; Oh Master, that never withholds the salary of thy workers; Oh argentine whiteness; Oh golden splendor; Oh crown of living and melodious diamonds: Thou who carries heaven in thy finger as if it were a Sapphire ring, Thou who hides the marvelous seed plot of stars under the earth within the kingdom of precious stones, come, reign and become the eternal dispenser of that wealth, whose guardians Thou has made us. Amen.

The Art of Working with the Stars

31.    The disciple will sit comfortably in a chair and will then concentrate his mind on his Innermost, saying:

32.    "You who art myself, my true Being.    

33.    "Leave my body, enter the doors of the heart temple of... (here one names the planet which one will work with in those instants)."

34.    Then the words Jakin, Boaz are pronounced.

35.    Next, the magician asks the sidereal genie with whom one is working, for the desired service: love, journeys, business, etc.

36.    The magician will exclaim the following several times: "Chorus, Chorus, Chorus;" and the angels will work according to the law.

37.    The planetary Logos will send choruses of angels to work with the magician, to dominate, and overcome.

38.    This is how one works with the ray of the stars.  This is how our disciples can solve their particular problems.
