Lunar Adorations

This ritual was first published in Vol. 1, No. 2 of The Scarlet Letter (Feast of the Dragon, Anno IV i). It has subsequently entered the canon of the Latrant Deity Project as 34-18.

Monthly, on the night when the Moon is new, let the magician face Her and proclaim:

Hail unto Thee who art Hecate gliding through the heavens, who treadest upon the clouds and drinkest the nectar of the stars; Thou Eye that blinkest in Thine Enigma upon the Night of Pan. Chaos leadeth Thee in the dance, and Eros singeth Thy beauty.

Then let him summon the force of ALIM by word and will, making the sign of 496 in Love.

Also, on the night when the Moon is in Her first quarter, let the magician face Her and proclaim:

Hail unto Thee who art Artemis gliding through the heavens, who treadest upon the clouds and drinkest the nectar of the stars; Thou Eye that openest in Thy Stalking upon the Night of Pan. Chaos leadeth Thee in the dance, and Eros singeth Thy beauty.

Then let him summon the force of ALIM by word and will, making the sign of 496 in Liberty.

Also, on the night when the Moon is full, let the magician face Her and proclaim:

Hail unto Thee who art Celene gliding through the heavens, who treadest upon the clouds and drinkest the nectar of the stars; Thou Eye that gazest in Thy Mystery upon the Night of Pan. Chaos leadeth Thee in the dance, and Eros singeth Thy beauty.

Then let him summon the force of ALIM by word and will, making the sign of 496 in Light.

Also, on the night when the Moon is in Her third quarter, let the magician face Her and proclaim:

Hail unto Thee who art Diana gliding through the heavens, who treadest upon the clouds and drinkest the nectar of the stars; Thou Eye that closest in Thy Dreaming upon the Night of Pan. Chaos leadeth Thee in the dance, and Eros singeth Thy beauty.

Then let him summon the force of ALIM by word and will, making the sign of 496 in Life.

Let him conclude each of these proclamations with the sign of silence, and let him continue by making the signs of N.O.X.

Then shall he perform an adoration by which the spirit shall descend, that ALIM become ALHIM, and he too drink the nectar of the stars.

When all this is accomplished, let him compose himself to holy meditation, until he taste the dissolution. And let this vary according to the Moon, so that with Hecate he shall enter into ayin, with Artemis he shall enter into caph, with Celene he shall enter into nun, and with Diana he shall enter into peh.

And thus may he grasp the celestial patterns of Life, yea and more, the patterns of Death, that these patterns may serve him as a map and a recipe in his execution of the Great Work, the fruits of which are True Wisdom and Perfect Happiness.

The 496 Signs

Each sign is made in a standing position with the arms held straight and the hands in fists, so as to describe with the fists a vesica in front of the magician.

  • Light: Hands are held together below the waist, and brought up to crossed wrists above the head.
  • Life: Hands are held with crossed wrists above the head, and brought down to come together below the waist.
  • Love: Hands are held together above the head, and brought down to crossed wrists below the waist.
  • Liberty: Hands are held with crossed wrists below the waist, and brought up to come together over the head.

The vesica formed in each case can be used as a frame for visualization.
