The 'Circle of the Stars' as shown to Edward Kelly

"...As for Kelly, he was scrying in the seventh Aethyr...when a message came to him that terrified him completely. In fact, he is said to have sworn to scry no more from that fateful day...The message that so frightened Kelly and brought an end to (the workings of) Enochian Magic (with Dee) was the following:

"I am the daughter of Fortitude and ravished every hour from my youth. For behold, I am Understanding, and science dwelleth in me: and the heavens oppress me. They cover and desire me with infinite appetite; for none the are earthly have embraced me, for I am shadowed with the Circle of the Stars, and covered with the morning clouds. My feet are swifter than the winds, and my hands are sweeter than the morning dew. My garments are from the beginning, and my dwelling place is in myself. The Lion knoweth no where I walk, neither do the beasts of the field understand me. I am deflowered, yet a virgin; I sanctify and am not sanctified. Happy is he that embraceth me: for in the night season I am sweet, and in the day full of pleasure. My company is a harmony of many symbols, and my lips sweeter than health itself. I am a harlot for such as ravish me, and a virgin with such as know me not. Purge your streets, O ye sons of men, and wash your house clean; make yourselves holy, and put on righteousness. Cast out your old strumpets, and burn your clothes and then I will bring forth children unto you and they shall be the Sons of Comfort in the Age that is to come."
