Admonitio.

This call may be given on the Solstices and the Equinoxes to herald the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse (4).

These Horsemen represent celestial phenomena related to the transitions into the 4 seasons and are related to the Seals that stand at the corners and above the 4 Terrestrial Tables (5).

"The Seals and authorities of these Houses, are confirmed in the beginning of the World. Unto every one of them, be 4 characters, (Tokens of the presence of the son of God: by whom all things were made in Creation.) Ensignes, upon the Image whereof, is death: whereon the Redemption of mankind is established, and with the which he shall come to judge the Earth."

from the Spirit Action Monday June 20, 1584 (6).

  3. Pat Zalewski pp. 153-5 et passim GOLDEN DAWN ENOCHIAN MAGIC concludes that the order of the words of these four lines should be read in reverse, ie "Zir Mozod Iad" etc. This makes some grammatical sense, if one accepts an English grammar correlation to the Angelic tongue. The word order is generally similar, though not identical in all places. This rendering might make better English of the Latin given; and would yield an equally accurate, but more literal: "The Motion of the Power of God" etc. It is not clear what Nalvage intends.

  4. Revelations VI: 1-8.

  5. Compare pp. 207-210 et passim of M. Denning & O. Phillips' MYSTERIA MAGICA (1992). This final correlation is there proposed, but the attribution therein poses a contradiction between the colors of the Clothes of Passage and the Horses.
