Quotes regarding the StarCircle

"Every man and woman is a star."
~Aleister Crowley~

Notes on the Ritual of the Pentagram

by Aleister Crowley
You are supposed to be standing at the intersection of the paths of Samekh and Peh. You are facing Tiphareth (the Sun), thus on your right hand is Netzach (Venus) on your left hand Hod (Mercury), and behind you Yesod (the Moon).
You take one step with the right heel in the hollow of the left foot towards Tiphareth and vibrate the Divine Name as given in the ritual. You then carry round the point of the wand towards Netzach, then take a step again (always recovering after each forward step so that you remain in the centre) and vibrating the Divine Name as before.
Continue the process facing Yesod and vibrating; then Hod, and vibrating; but carry the point of the Wand round to Tiphareth so as to complete the circle.
As you vibrate the Divine Name the angels, as given in the ritual, appear (note that they should appear and if the ritual is properly performed do appear.)
You are thus standing in a Column which is protected by your microcosmic invocation. The consequent result, being macrocosmic response, is that without any effort on your part the hexagram or sixfold star appears both above and below you. (Note the equilibration of 5 = 6). In this way you are completely shut off from the outer and Qliphotic parts of the universe.
Get well into your mind the realization of this Column with its surrounding pentagrams and its hexagrams above and below you. Continuous practice is essential if you are to perform this ritual as you should. It is particularly important not to slur any part of it; to visualize clearly and cleanly the forces invoked, with the exception of the Divine Being, who will not appear, in the ordinary course of events, for such slight cause.
You can figure out for yourself the forms of the angels, or rather archangels. For instance, Raphael, commencing with an "R" will have a head of solar glory and the Peh which follows shows that the rest of him is martial: the "AL" which concludes the name (in the case of most angelic beings) indicates that they wield the sword and the balance.

(received by Edward Kelley and Dr. John Dee)
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 that 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 not where I walk, neither do the beast of the fields 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. For lo, I am loved of many, and I am a lover to many; and as many as come unto me as they should do, have entertainment.
Purge your streets, O ye sons of men, and wash your houses clean; make yourselves holy, and put on righteousness. Cast out your old strumpets, and burn their clothes; abstain from the company of other women that are defiled, that are sluttish, and not so handsome and beautiful as I, and then will I come and dwell amongst you: and behold, I will bring forth children unto you, and they shall be the Sons of Comfort. I will open my garments, and stand naked before you, that your love may be more enflamed toward me.

Consecration of Golden Dawn Temple Tarot deck and box...

what I am doing is utilizing an interpretative Four World painting scheme- the inside of the box-White for Kether/Atziluth-as Archetypal Imagery-and the outside Citrine/Olive/Black and Russet for the manifestational aspect of Assiah/and the Active principles of practical applications of the Wisdom that the cards present...
I am fumigating the interior of the box in the essence of Spirit/Kether with Ambergris, and the outside of the box in the essence of Earth/Malkuth with Dittany of Crete, Poppy, and Patchouli- based upon the 'Essence of the Spheres'from The Magical and Ritual Use of Perfumes by Richard Alan & Iona Miller...
the outside of the box will be painted in the Briah (Queen Scale) colors of Malkuth-Citrine-AIR of EARTH (Hod & Netzach, Russet-FIRE of EARTh (Hod & Yesod), Olive-WATER of EARTH (Netzach & Yesod), and finally Black-EARTH of EARTH (Grounding in Malkuth)
Then-based on the ADNI Formula for the GD Outer Order work-FIRE (Russet)-is Yod, WATER (Olive) is Heh, AIR (Citrine) is Vah, and EARTH (Black) is the final Heh - YHVH.
the FIRE/Russet side will say: By Names & Images, the WATER/Olive side will say: Are All Powers, the AIR/Citrine side will say: Awakened &, the EARTH/Black side will say Re-Awakened...
Atop the box-is the center will be a white Rose Cross sigil for the Tarot Angel HRU...

the bottom of the tarot box is Black (Earth of Earth) Malkuth with the rose cross sigil of Sandalphon. The inside of the tarot box is White (Spirit of Spirit) Kether with the rose cross sigil of Metatron...

The consecration ritual is from Tarot Talismans by Chic and Tabitha Cicero

Tarot Consecration Ritual
Golden Dawn Temple Tarot
Created by Nick Farrell, Harry & Nicola Wendrich

In the center of your temple or sacred space you will need an altar that faces East. On the Eastern side of the altar, place a black and white pillar candle (left and right respectively) and a small white votive candle just to the east of them. Place your unopened deck in the center. If the deck has been previously opened and used, before starting the ritual you should wipe each card with a clean white cloth that has been charged for that purpose.
Around your tarot deck, place the following: on the east side, the AIR dagger, on the south side- the FIRE Wand, on the west side-the WATER Chalice, and on the north side, the EARTH Pentacle.
Spend a few minutes in relaxed meditation. Then perform the LBRP.
Stand west of your altar, facing east. Trace a circle and a Lesser Banishing Pentagram over the unopened deck of cards.
With your Tarot Wand-strike or touch the deck three times and say:

"Eheieh. Yah, YHVH Elohim" (eh-hay-yay. Yah. Yod-heh-vav-heh. El-oh-heem)

With each stroke of the wand, intone one of these supernal names. Then say:

"Unto the highest do I (state your magical name) consecrate these cards of arte, that they may become true reflected images of thy manifestation and splendor. Not to my name but to thine be the power and the glory."

Trace a cross over the deck and say:

"In the divine name IAO (ee-ah-oh), I invoke the great angel Hru (heh-roo) who art set over the operations of this secret wisdom. Lay thine hand invisibly on these cards of arte and give them life. Anoint them with the divine science so that through their use I may obtain true knowledge of hidden things, to the glory of thy ineffable name. Amen."

Visualize the hand of a mighty angel over the deck glowing with a bright white light. The tarot deck should also be visualized in a brilliant halo of light.
Strike the tarot deck again three times with the Tarot Wand. Then visualize a great white light above you. Fill yourself with its divine power. Then project this energy directly at the deck using the Sign of the Enterer: do this projection 3x.
Then give the Sign of Silence.
Now open the deck and take out the cards. Fan the cards out in a circle on the altar. With your tarot wand, trace a cross in the air above the cards and say:

"By names and images are all powers awakened and re-awakened."

Thrust your wand head through the center of the cross.
Gather up the cards and place them in their tarot box. Then say:

"I now release any spirits that may have been imprisoned by this ceremony. Depart in Peace. Go with the blessings of Yeheshuah Yehovahshah" (yeh-hay-shoe-ah. Yeh-ho-vah-shah).

Perform the LBRP again.

Finally say:

"I now declare this temple duly closed."

The ritual is ended.
