What follows are visualizations intended to be used in conjunction with Liber V vel Reguli, the Ritual of the Mark of the Beast. They are inspired by Stafford Beer's Viable System Model (VSM), and constitute a beginning attempt at incorporating this model into a ritual framework.
I've been using these visualizations as part of my Highlie Effectif Demons class at Thelema Lodge. So far, I'm very pleased with the results, in that they channel the power of Reguli in a practical direction. I certainly wouldn't call it an improvement over the original, but it's a useful tool for Malkuth Magick.
In the North, trace the averse invoking pentagram of Air, vibrate "Nuit," make the sign of Puella. From this, absorb the knowledge of what is outside you and what is in the future. Absorb the knowledge of how to get what you need from the world. Absorb the knowledge of whether your actions are leading to the results you want.
In the South, trace the averse invoking pentagram of Fire, vibrate "Hadit," make the sign of Puer. From this, absorb the ability to direct your actions, the ability to prioritize, and the ability to break down your goals into achievable tasks.
In the East, trace the averse invoking pentagram of Earth, vibrate "Therion," make the sign of Vir. From this, absorb the strength and dedication to persist in your tasks.
In the West, trace the averse invoking pentagram of Water, vibrate "Babalon," make the sign of Mulier. From this, absorb sensitivity to your peers, and let all the constituent parts of yourself become integrated in awareness of one another.
In the center, trace the Mark of the Beast, vibrate "Aiwass," and absorb knowledge of your Will. Trace the invoking hexagram of the Beast. Strike the ground, make the sign of Mater Triumphans, vibrate "Thelema," and feel your Will being accomplished.
