Sigil for Agrimus-the 'Curled One'-Dragon of the EARTH

Agrimus-the 'Curled One': First Born of Lilith & Adam

From my Research...I feel strongly that AGRIMUS, the first born of Lilith and Adam IS the Dragon...the 'Curled One'...the 'Dragon' that rules over the world [matter]...representing the Cosmic Axis-the Axis Mundi...the Stang representative of the Horned One???

Shani Oates-the Maid of the Clan of Tubal Cain states:

"Cain or Qayin is Our tutelary deity, Tubal Cain, is described by RB as the ‘Hairy One’ [the unknown spirit of Pan] with each wayfarer a ‘fool’ and child of the Hairy One. He also describes him as the holder of the mysteries, the gatekeeper, indicating that He, like Qayin is also in service to some higher principle beyond themselves. Compelled to explore further His attributes for myself, I was gifted one image that encapsulates the profound moment Qayin received both mark and exile. Above his brow, three curling flame-like strands suggest the fire-brand of shin, the triple fire and triple horns of this eponymous and eternal wanderer (in the sense of eternal seeker). I perceived ‘Pashupâti, Lord of the Animals’ poised and crowned with magnificent (lunar) bulls horns, stag antlers (stellar) and goat or rams (solar) horns in composite effulgence as the glorious ‘Trimurti’"

but I have to wonder...is it Cain/Qayin...who wears the crown above his brow of three curling flame-like strands-the fire-brand of shin...the triple fire and triple horns-or is it AGRIMUS-the 'Curled One'?

The Gematric total of the Daemon AGRIMUS, first born of Liltih and Adam...equals 341...

341 is the Sum of the 3 Mother letters in Hebrew...

Aleph, Mem, and Shin...

AIR, WATER, and FIRE...

the 3 letters making up God's name (yud, he, and vav),

In its relation to the construction of the cosmos, matter consists of the three primordial elements, which, however, are not chemically connected with one another, but modify one another only physically. Power (δύναμις) emanates from the seven and the twelve heavenly bodies, or, in other words, from the planets and the signs of the zodiac. The "dragon" rules over the world (matter and the heavenly bodies); the sphere rules time; and the heart rules over the human body. The author sums up this explanation in a single sentence: "The dragon is like to a king on his throne, the sphere like a king traveling in his country, and the heart like a king at war."

The "dragon" (תלי tli, perhaps meaning "curled one" as a coiled serpent) which plays such an important part in the astrology of the book, is probably an ancient Semitic figure; at all events its name is not Arabic, as scholars have hitherto assumed, but either Aramaic or possibly a Babylonian loan-word. The "dragon" is often understood as the starry constellation Draco and by extension it represents the cosmic axis (equivalent to the north/south pole) because this constellation coils around the North Star and thus around the celestial axis, as it intersects the northernmost part of the celestial sphere.

the theory of contrasts in nature, or of the syzygies ("pairs"), as they are called by the Gnostics, occupies a prominent place in the Sefer Yetzirah. This doctrine is based on the assumption that the physical as well as the moral world consists of a series of contrasts mutually at war, yet pacified and equalized by the unity, God. Thus in the three prototypes of creation the contrasting elements fire and water are equalized by air; corresponding to this are the three "mothers" among the letters, the mute מ contrasting with the hissing ש, and both being equalized by א.

Seven pairs of contrasts are enumerated in the life of man:

Life and death
Peace and strife
Wisdom and folly
Wealth and poverty
Beauty and ugliness
Fertility and sterility
Lordship and servitude (iv. 3)
From these premises the Sefer Yezirah draws the important conclusion that "good and evil" have no real existence, for since everything in nature can exist only by means of its contrast, a thing may be called good or evil according to its influence over man by the natural course of the contrast.

I think it also entails the Angelick/Daemon balance of each of the 72 names...

First there are three mother letters, or Immoth: Aleph, Mem and Shin. They form the prime trinity that came from the Divine. They represent the three dimensions of space. They act as a prism which transforms the divine light into seven more letters which are the double letters or Kaphouloth: Beth, Gimmel, Daleth, Kaph, Phe, Resh and Tau. They are called double letters because they have two ways of pronunciation.

Traditionally, the three mother letters are associated with the first three Sephiroth, but they are also representative of the three pillars of the Tree of Life. The seven double letters are associated with the next seven Sephiroth.

Aleph, Mem and Shin, the three mother letters are also strongly defined.

Aleph as first letter is attributed to Kether, the origin of the Tree of Life.

Mem , the thirteenth letter, has water as symbolic value, and is attributed to Binah, the Sephirah which has for symbols the primal waters and mother archetype. The letter Mem also stands for the mother, fertility, the earth, the sea. Shin, the twenty-first, letter is attributed to Binah, the Sephirah of the father archetype and has male, fiery characteristics. The shape of the letter Mem has an enclosing form, reflecting the female enclosing, harboring, nurturing values.

The letter Shin is the dynamic movement of the element Fire, the active, expansive and vivifying forces in the universe. It is also the symbol of the vivifying spirit. It shape reflects three raised flames in the shape of three Vaus's.

Hymn to Holle

Hymn to Holle

Holla, Mistress of the Storms
Weaver of the Web of Time
Yours is the Gate of Birth and Death
The dark funnel leading downwards
Into your realms-and back to the world
In the exhaustible opulence of your garden
In the richness of the Ancestors
The Dead, the Children
The Whispering voices in the Nightly Wind
In the time before time
Haunts your wild band
Throughout the land
Leaving Fear and Hope
Holla, Mistress of the Fertile Waters
Take lives and give lives right back
At the right place, at the right time.


Hymne an die Holle

Holla, Herrin der Stürme
Dein ist das Tor von Geburt und Tod
Die dunklen Trichter nach unten führenden
In Ihrem Reiche und zurück in die Welt
In der regenerativen Opulenz in Ihrem Garten
In den Reichtum der Vorfahren
The Dead, die Kinder
The Whispering Stimmen in der Nacht Wind
In der Zeit vor der Zeit
Haunts Ihre wilde Band
Im ganzen Land
Leaving Fear and Hope
Holla, Herrin des Fruchtbaren Waters
Nehmen Sie das Leben und geben das Leben gleich wieder
Am richtigen Ort, zur richtigen Zeit.

Ghost Roads ritual




Ghost Roads Ritual

Establishing the Geisterwege or Ghost Roads for the Working Circle or the Compass Magickal

Go to the nearest natural body of water, and draw forth enough water to pour a direct line of water from the original water source to the Circle or Compass.

Take an offering to the Water Spirits, and to the Spirits of Place. Give these offerings before taking the Water…

Announce as you bring the Water into the Sacred Space/Circle/Compass Round:
"I have gone to the Source of ALL Waters.
Here is water, blessed by the Old Ones,
A fertile river of life,
A medium of ghosts,
A water that is bridge of passage for every Spirit,
A water of Mastery,
Over ALL-Much Power.
Much vision.
And from the heights to the depths,
The road of the Spells of the Boundary.
Keeper and the Boundary-Crosser."


Pour the remainder of the water in a sacred vessel, inside the circle/compass. Lift high the container [WATER]

Invoke the WATER:
"Water from the bosom of the Earth,
From which comes all Life,
Be blessed and enlivened in the Name of Dame Owl,
The Old Serpent,
The Undying Queen Below."


add 3 sprinkles of salt into the water.

Invoke the SALT:
"God in the Salt, I call you to wakefulness with my words,
And give you life in the name of the Horned-One-
Be consecrated and Forceful, and Fierce red with Might,
You salt that sustains Life."


From the WATER and the SALT, anoint your forehead.

"I anoint Thee in Devotion to the White King of Elfhame."

Walking counterclockwise, pour Water around your Compass in an area made by the sacred sword or by the Stang.

This is symbolic of the River Styx, that separates this world from the next.
As you come to the Cardinal points, a 'Ghost Road' has to be made. Make a straight line of Water extending out a few inches toward that direction. When you have finished you will have surrounded the area totally with Water from the Source, and made 4 Water- 'Ghost Roads'.

Now cast pinches of EARTH taken from a Family Cemetery/Ancestral Place at each Cardinal Points.
Invoke the EARTH:
"I cast Earth here in the Name of the Old Ones and the Ancestors,
To mark this Space as Sacred."


Go to the NORTH:
"Now you come, My Mother's Ancestors
With the North Wind,
I summon you here.
You listen to my call.
You respond to my voice.
On the North Wind I summon you now
With my Praying Breath."


Go to the EAST:
"Now you come, My Father's Ancestors
On the East Wind,
I summon you here.
You run with the red tempests,
Stir up the gray dust,
You hear my voice calling,
Upon my Praying Breath."


Go to the SOUTH:
"Now you come,
My dearest animal ancestors,
I call upon you on the South Winds.
Bird-formed Spirit, Shaman Woman,
I welcome you here
With my Praying Breath."


Go to the WEST:
"Now I call on All the Departed.
The West Wind's wings will bring you here
You make the Moon rise,
Gently ruffle the seven seas,
Be Here in your Breath!
Be Here and listen to me!"


Go to the Stang planted in the North…and cutting yourself, Blood the Horns atop the Stang calling:
"By Blood and Bone
You are Her Champion.
Protector of the Mysteries.
Guard and Guide
Our Hearts and Hands
To work the Will of the Lady."


Now move the center of the Circle/Compass and draw a equal armed cross in the center of the Circle of Arte with the Hexen Blood & Bone mixture.

"Four roads meet and four roads part
All the centre of All
I have come to commune
With the Silent Ones
By this Cross I summon
The Legacy of my Blood
This is the True Cross
The Cross of the Journeyman
That know his Station and Sojourn
Allow me to dwell again
In the arms of my kin
Great Old Gods, undead and eternal
Hear me as I awaken you from you
Slumber and Silence!
From Height to Depth,
From dextral to sinister
I call upon thee to meet me
At this Crossroads of Power!"


Stand with your arms out-stretched, held high above your head and call…turning from North to East, to South, to West, and back to North.

"Ancestral Powers of this Our Blood.
We are your People, Guard us well.
By Earth and Air, by Fire and Flood,
By Magick mime, and Spoken Spell.

Kinship to Kinship, Blood to Blood
By dark night wind and starry sky
By Water running wild and free
To this our Circle now draw nigh.

Our Craft's own Goddess I invoke
And Ancient Ones of Hill and Mound
These Ghost Roads cross
and meet in the Circle Round."


Gather in the Center of the Circle/Compass and grasp hands.
"In a Circle-Hand in hand
We call the Old Ones to our Land.
All who are of Me and Mine
Come to Dance and spend some time.
We are all but a thin Red Line."


Releasing hands, lift your arms high above your head and SHOUT:
"Kinship to Kinship-
Blood to Blood!"

Consecration of the Stang-The Rite of taking Flight into the Realm of the Nightshade

"For Spirit flight to the Master's Sabbat, [the following] is recommended:

take one teaspoon of Mandrake root,
three leaves of Datura Stramonium or Metel, and one flower of the same plant,
a tablespoon of Belladonna berries [ripe],
a tablespoon of liguorish root,
a tablespoon of Hyssop.


Place this in cognac sufficient for it to cover the herbs for a week and mix this with 1.5 litres of red wine. Let this rest for 24 hours and it is ready. SHOW CAUTION, even with recipes like this, whose intent is to counteract the deadly toxins.

Cut you stang wood wehn the Moon is growing and in Taurus, Cancer, or Libra, alternatively in a good aspect of Mercury. You can also do this on a Wednesday [Mercury's Day] in his first hour of the night. Leave an offering of ground coffee, milk, wine, honey, and three coins in gratitude to the spirit of the tree.

Take the Staff, red wine and milk to a river in the hour when Venus is rising. Pray to the Fairies and declare this your Staff/Stang is the ladder to the Sabbath. Prick yourself and anoint the to and bottom of the stang with your blood.

The next day, when Venus rises in the sky take a cord of leather the height of your body. Tie nine knots on the cord, one knot for each of the three fates and their threefold placement in time and space. Tie the cord around your stang.

On the third night bring the stang and your knife to the same place. Carve in the lower end of the ladder/stang the rune Hagel and while carving chant the words of otherness:

Hel-Hagal-Hela.

Carve the Witch's Foot on the top, and chant, in the language of the birds:

Algiz-Holda-Algiz.

In the centre you will carve Laug and chant with the voice of fertile water:

Laguz-Freya-Laugar,

Anoint the staff with oil and breath. Let it rest in a dark cloth in a dark place until the Full Moon. Avoid exposing it to the Sun.

On the appointed night, when Venus rises, take your stang and your Vinum or Unguent Sabbati and position yourself to the north and wait until the Moon rises. Make a petition to the Moon to take you on her wings to the Hidden Convent where you will anoint yourself.

Take the Ladder/Stang and plant it in the ground repeatedly shouting:

Sator, Falcifer, the witches of the land
The Moon is full and fertile and I bid ye mighty dead to rise
From grave and alcove, from pound and woodhouse
Rise from your slumber and come to the Ladder's steps.


Then feed the wine and almonds to the Earth. Place your left hand to the ladder/stang and see in your mind's eye the skull faced legions rise from the ground.

then Say:

Of masters fo the skull and wine, blade and cross
By your blood I call upon he who rideth out in the wild hunt
Hooded master of grove and pyre
Dark one at the door and crossroads
I beseech you to open the witch way to the Sabbath
by the Fates so fair, and the Sisters Wyrd
Throw the Silver Thread across Ladder and Mount.
Ninefold Mother, Hel, Herodia, Holda
Queen of Elphame, Queen of Venus' mount
Take me to the Hidden Convent!


Recite the Journey runes and focus on the Witch's Foot and ascend throught the well of thorns to the sacerd place behind the Moon. Let the witches of the Land, Faunus himself or your familiar take you through the ladder and into the Sabbath circle.

To return again grip the ladder/stang and shout:

Sator Rentum Tormentum
In Nome Patri
Filii et Spiritus Sancti,
by the Skull of wisdom
and in the Master's name!


Upon return leave an offering of fig, apple and water to the genii loci and fair folk of that particular place.

Consecration of the Mortar and Pestle

"The Mortar is one of the main tools. It represents the womb of the Night Queen adn is known as the Life-Giver and Death-Taker. To consecrate it, anoint the mortar with dew collected on the early morning following the night of the full moon. To do this, wet the index finger on the left hand and then trace the lip of the mortar [three times]. Next, rewet the finger and dab it three times inside the mortar [directly center].

When anointing the mortar, speak the [incantation]

I call to Mother Womb and ancient Tomb,
Be blessed be the Water of the Moon.


The pestle is the masculine half of the mortar set, and is mated to the mortar as a primary tool in Old World Witchcraft. The pestle is also called the Horn-Awakener wehn used for gain and increase. It is known as teh Serpent-Slumberer when used for decline and dissolving. To consecrate it, wrap a leaf that is wet with morning dew around the tip of the pestle, Slide the wet leaf down the shaft of the pestle and back up to the tip [do this three times]

Fire-SOUTH Triangle

West-WATER Triangle

Earth-NORTH Triangle

Air-EAST Triangle

Triangles

"They place great store in triangles, circles and symbols. Each of their saints/spirits has his own symbol. Each of their many Exus does also. And each of us here on earth have a triangle that he can use when he wishes to get closer to the 'spirits of nature' [which are not to be confused with the Spirits of the Dead]. These triangles are used only for good, never for evil, and they must be used by the right person and in the right position.

If you were born under the astrological sign of:

Leo [July 23-August 22/
Sagittarius [November 22-December 21]
Aries [March 21-April 19]
then you nature element is FIRE and your protective spirits are
Leo-Odala/Jesus
Sagittarius-Xango/St. John the Baptist
Aries-Ogun/St George.

Your Life Force or cosmic current comes from the SOUTH. Take a large new white cloth and cut it into a triangle shape. Now with yellow paint draw this triangle in the center of the cloth, making sure that the top point is in line with the top point of your scissored cloth and that the design is large enough for a human being to kneel inside it without his feet touching the edge of the design:

When you wish something, take this cloth and place it on the ground [bare earth is more powerful than man-made-floor] with the apex of the triangle pointing Exactly SOUTH. take off your shoes and stand behind the base of the painted triangle without touching the design. Ask protection and guidance of your particular spirit/saint, telling him how much you believe in him and how much you need him. Then ask your favor. If you wish a material favor [a new house, a car, more money, etc] place an even number of candles at each point of the triangle. If the request is non-material [health, love, friendship, etc.] place an odd number of candles at each point. Strike a fresh match for each candle and repeat your request each time a candle begins to burn.

If you are trying to get rid of the evil eye, bad luck or bad health, then stand with your feet touching the apex and your back to the SOUTH. Bend down and touch the apex with your hands and light an odd number of candles.

No should you be working with a medium, she [or he] kneels in the center of the triangle, always facing SOUTH, and if she says the Spirit demands a special offering like a chicken, some beads, a bottle of alcohol, etc., make sure that these gifts are place along the edges of the cloth and Never ON The Cloth itself.

For those born under the sign:
Aquarius [January 20-February 18]
Gemini [May 21-June 21]
Libra [September 23-October 23]

your nature element is AIR and your protective spirits are
Yorima/St. Cyprian, Yori/SS
Cosmos and Damian
Oxossi/St. Sebastian respectively

Your life force of cosmic current comes from the EAST. Take a large new blue cloth and cut it into a triangle form, and with green paint draw the following triangle, following the instructions given for the preceding one:

When ready to make a request, make sure the apex is toward the EAST and obey the rules of odd and even candles and the position of the medium inside the drawing, as well as of the placings of the offerings.

If you were born under the sign of:
Scorpio [October 24-November 21]
Cancer [June 22-July 22]
or Pisces [February 19-March 20]
then your nature element is WATER and your protective spirits are:
Ogun/St. George
Yemanja/Virgin Mary
Xango/John the Baptist.

Your cosmic current comes from the WEST. In this sign a yellow cloth must be used and the following triangle drawn upon it in white paint.

Make sure the apex of the triangle is always pointing WEST and that you observe all the rules laid down for the first-mentioned prayer cloth.

If you were born under the sign of:
Taurus [April 20-May 20]
Virgo [August 23-September 22]
Capricorn [December 22-January 19]
then your nature element is EARTH and your protective spirits are:
Oxossi/St. Sebastian
Yemanja/Virgin Mary
Oxun/St. Catherine.

Your cosmic current comes from the NORTH and you should have a red cloth with the following triangle drawn on it in white paint.

When you make a request, be sure that the apex of the triangle is always pointing NORTH and that you follow all the rules.

N'Ganga/Spirit Cauldron work...

Begin the serious work with the N'Ganga/Spirit Cauldron's last night...11/6/11...
Did the 'washing' which included physcially washing the cauldrons in the 7 waters collected previously during Study Group...

Water from a running stream,
water from the Ocean,
St. John's water from New Orleans,
Well water,
Playa lake water,
Holy water from Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of San Jaun del Valle-San Juan TX
Holy water from Wallfahrtskirch am Heiligenstein Gafkenz-Austria


After consecrating the sacred space by blowing smoke to the 4 quarters- Rocky Patel Edge Toro Madur cigar...and spewing Rum-[name of rum from Stacy] we washed the Cauldrons.
After washing them, we each blew smoke from the cigar in/on them, and then spewed Rum in/on them...

We recited the prayer for the N'Ganga [get from Stacy] and did One Our Father prayer:

Our Father, which art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done,
in earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
[For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.]
Amen.


followed by one Hail Mary prayer:

Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.


then we did one Gloria prayer:

Glory to God in the highest, and peace to His people on earth. Lord God heavenly King, almighty God and Father, we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory. Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, Lord God, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world; have mercy on us; you are seated at the right hand of the Father; receive our prayer. For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

We repeated this process three times, Cigar, Rum, Our Father Pray, Hail Mary Prayer, and Glory Prayer.
