ALEISTER CROWLEY LIBER 777

nce to the golden dawn. after swearing a long and tortuously phrased oath of secrecy, the neophyte was issued a knowledge lecture which consisted of the names and symbols of the elements, planets and signs along with the hebrew alphabet and the names of the sephiroth in hebrew. 4 the lemegeton is a 17th-century compilation, probably english, of magical texts attributed to solomon. the first book, goetia, describes 72 evil spirits and gives instructions for evoking them (it derives variously from the key of solomon, the heptameron, the fourth book of pseudo-agrippa and the pseudomonarchia d monum of wier. in 777 cols. clv clxvi the spirits are referred to the decans by day and night. the second book, theurgia goetia, describes 27 principal spirits and a very large number of subordinates of

ecans by day and night. the second book, theurgia goetia, describes 27 principal spirits and a very large number of subordinates of whom relatively few are named; of the 27, 16 are referred to the points of the compass and the other 11 are said to wander and have no fixed place. they are said to be partly evil and party good, hence the apparently oxymoronic title. it is possible that the theurgia-goetia was based on the steganographia of trithemius by someone who did not realise that the latter was primarily a work of cryptography. the third book, ars paulina, contains a catalogue of angels for the 12 hours of the day and night, and for the 12 signs and 360 degrees of the zodiac; they are also attributed to the seven classical planets. the fourth book, ars almadel, is probably of medieval

el, is probably of medieval origin: it divides up the powers it summons into four altitudes, seemingly referred to the cardinal points of the zodiac. the fifth book of the lemegeton, ars nova, is rather a kind of appendix which appears in one ms where it occupies one and a half sides of a single folio leaf: it contains an extended prayer associated with the names on the circle and triangle of the goetia, possibly intended to be spoken while drawing these, along with a short and garbled conjuration containing some highly corrupt hebrew names, probably also connected with the goetia as it mentions the brazen vessel; and finally, a lengthy curse targetted at anyone who steals the book. the ars nova is sometimes confused with the ars notoria (notary art) attributed to solomon, which latter rat

ALEISTER CROWLEY MAGICK IN THEORY AND PRACTICE

its works and wonderful operations by a right understanding of the inward and occult virtue of things; so that true agents being applied to proper patients, strange and admirable effects will thereby be produced. whence magicians are profound and diligent searchers into nature; they, because of their skill, know how to anticipate an effect, the which to the vulgar shall seem to be a miracle "the goetia of the lemegeton of king solomon "wherever sympathetic magic occurs in its pure unadulterated form, it is assumed that in nature one event follows another necessarily and invariably without the intervention of any spiritual or personal agency. thus its fundamental conception is identical with that of modern science; underlying the whole system is a faith, implicit but real and firm, in the

rst method" consists of devotion to that deity, and, being mainly mystical in character, need not be dealt with in this place, especially as a perfect instruction exists in liber 175("see" appendix. the "second method"is the straight forward ceremonial invocation. it is the method which was usually employed in the middle ages. its advantage is its directness, its disadvantage its 12 crudity. the "goetia" gives clear instruction in this method, and so do many other rituals, white and black. we shall presently devote some space to a clear exposition of this art. in the case of bacchus, however, we may roughly outline the procedure. we find that the symbolism of tiphareth expresses the nature of bacchus. it is then necessary to construct a ritual of tiphareth. let us open the book 777; we sha

s been attained in the quite conventional exoteric way both by frater perdurabo and by many of his colleagues, yet ceremonies of this character have always remained tedious and difficult. it has seemed as if the success were obtained almost in spite of the ceremony. in any case, they are the more mysterious parts of the ritual which have evoked the divine force. such conjurations as those of the "goetia" leave one cold, although, notably in the second conjuration, there is a crude attempt to use that formula of commemoration of which we spoke in the preceding chapter. 21 chapter iii the formula of tetragrammaton<<yod, he, vau, he, the ineffable name (jehovah) of the hebrews. the four letters refer respectively to the four "elements, fire, water, air, earth, in the order named> this formula

invocation, with an elaborate rubric, translation, scholia, and instruction. weh addendum: this is the "preliminary invocation" placed in the "goetia" in the mathers transcription (not "translation) by crowley. this invocation is not a part of the original text, but comes to us from the greco-egyptian period of perhaps the 6th century. the goetia is itself a small portion of the "lemegeton" or "lesser key of solomon" this "preliminary evocation" is altered in liber samekh over that published in the "goetia> the conjurations given by dr. dee (vide equinox i, viii) are in a language called angelic, or enochian. its source has hitherto baffled research, but it is a language and not a jargon, for it possesses a structure of its own, and

l. it is as if they expected the steam of watts' kettle to convey people from place to place without the trouble of inventing and using locomotives. let us apply these considerations to magick in its restricted sense, the sense in which it was always understood until the master therion extended it to cover the entire operations of nature. what is the theory implied in such rituals as those of the goetia? what does the magician do? he applies himself to invoke a god, and this god compels the appearance of a spirit whose function is to perform the will of the magician at the moment. there is no trace of what may be called machinery in the method. the exorcist hardly takes the pains of preparing a material basis for the spirit to incarnate except the bare connection 108 of himself with his si

DONALDTYSON DEMON

mere words and names are of little use. the jewish priests were not offering the possessed man salvation for his soul, but were merely attempting to intimidate the demon into leaving. lists of demons occur in some of the darker grimoires, notable among them the lemegeton or lesser key of solomon. this is a collection of tracts about ritual evocation and spirit magic. the first tract is named the goetia and consists of a descriptive list of the seventy-two demons which were bound by king solomon with his magic seal ring in a vessel of brass or copper, and cast into a lake (or the sea- accounts differ. to modern eyes, medieval images of demons may appear comical and quaint. you should realize that these images, and the understanding that christian demonologists had about them, were merely u


DONALDTYSON SIGIL

rawing a connecting line from letter to letter, a sigil of the name is created. it is one of the mysteries of magic, often commented upon by the ptolemaic greeks, that mankind can summon and control the forces of the gods and angels through their names and sigils. more commonly, sigils are associated in the average person's mind with the lower spirits and demons. no medieval grimoire, such as the goetia, would be complete without its set of demonic sigils. perhaps this is because the lower spirits, who were often summoned for mundane purposes such as causing injury to others or finding treasure, are more rebellious and require instruments of control and punishment. by inflicting injury upon the demon's inscribed sigil, the magician was able to cause discomfort or pain to the spirit it repr

ing it inside a bible, standing upon it, burying it, hanging it over rising incense smoke, binding it with cord, striking it with the flat of a sword blade, or subjecting it to the heat from open flame. often the mere threat to destroy the sigil caused the demon to comply. at the top of this page is the seal of the demon astaroth, as drawn by s. l. macgregor mathers for his manuscript copy of the goetia. mathers' manuscript was edited by aleister crowley, who made only minor changes, and published by crowley in 1903. the sigil of astaroth appears in the center of the seal. to evoke astaroth into the triangle, it is necessary to draw this seal on new paper or some other appropriate material at an astrologically auspicious time, and to ritually bind astaroth to the seal by means of his sigil

striking the seal with his sword. many of those who practice this ancient and honorable art believe that merely by gazing overlong at demonic sigils, the demons themselves will be attracted, and will cause trouble or bad luck in the life of the person who disturbs them. there may be some truth in this folklore. i found that during the period when i was devoting intense study to the sigils of the goetia, i began to see them in my dreams and was subject to nightmares in which the sigils themselves writhed and twisted as though alive. this was disturbing enough to cause me to suspend my research, at that time. return h, home resources demons bios fiction tyson the truth about ufos (ufos seen over nuremberg on april 14th, 1561) the term ufo is an acronym for "unidentified flying object" throu

discouraged from using mirrors for this reason, lest they become possessed by the demoness, who will drive them to sexual acts with sleeping men. the black mirror is considered also a tool for atavistic resurgence that the demons of the mind or the lycanthropic state may be brought out by enchanting the self to open the imagination to images in the reflection. the black mirror in the work of the goetia is used as a tool to communicate with the bound spirit or familiar after initial evocation. the sorcerer who summons the angel or demon may bind it accordingly to the vessel, and at a later time evoke the spirit again and use the black mirror to visualize its form and impressions it may send. if a specific goetic spirit is bound with the magician as a familiar/famulus, then the black mirror

the 17th century [1] in more or less the same form as i will present it. most of the material however is found in varying forms in earlier manuscripts, and some of the material dates back as early as the 14th century or earlier [2. reginald scot, in his lists of magical texts [3, mentions ars paulina, ars almadel, and ars notoria in the same breath. he also includes a text closely related to the goetia [4. so the bulk of the materials were possibly collected together by 1584. the name lemegeton is probably naively invented because of the compiler's ignorance of latin. he or she was no doubt familiar with the clavicula salomonis (key of solomon) and wanted to title this work the "little key of solomon" this became "lemegeton clavicula salomonis" the major texts used for this edition have b

except for the ars notoria. for the latter the manuscripts are clearly dependent on robert turner's translation; i have therefore used his 1657 edition as the primary source. variants from other manuscripts are noted in square brackets. also in square brackets are the folio numbers from sl. 3825. i have resisted the temptation to modernise the language. the parts of the lemegeton are as follows: goetia the first book, goetia, corresponds closely with the catalog of demons published by john wier (or johann wierus) as pseudomonarchia daemonum in his 1563 de praestigiis daemonum. in wier's text there are no demonic seals, and the demons are invoked by a simple conjuration, not the elaborate ritual found in the lemegeton. theurgia goetia this text has close parallels with book one of trithemi

nce to the golden dawn. after swearing a long and tortuously phrased oath of secrecy, the neophyte was issued a knowledge lecture which consisted of the names and symbols of the elements, planets and signs along with the hebrew alphabet and the names of the sephiroth in hebrew. 4 the lemegeton is a 17th-century compilation, probably english, of magical texts attributed to solomon. the first book, goetia, describes 72 evil spirits and gives instructions for evoking them (it derives variously from the key of solomon, the heptameron, the fourth book of pseudo-agrippa and the pseudomonarchia d monum published by wier. crowley published an edition of it in 1904. in 777 cols. clv clxvi the spirits are referred to the decans by day and night. the second book, theurgia goetia, lists 31 principal s

l, is probably of medieval origin: it divides up the powers it summons into four altitudes, seemingly referred to the cardinal points of the zodiac. the fifth book of the lemegeton, ars nova, is rather a kind of appendix which appears in one ms. where it occupies one and a half sides of a single folio leaf: it contains an extended prayer associated with the names on the circle and triangle of the goetia, possibly intended to be spoken while drawing these, along with a short and garbled conjuration containing some highly corrupt hebrew names, probably also connected with the goetia as it mentions the brazen vessel; and finally, a lengthy curse targetted at anyone who steals the book. the ars nova is sometimes confused with the ars notoria (notary art) attributed to solomon, which latter rat

rs nova. if the accepted order of the pages is used, this blank comes in the middle of the presentation, for no obvious reason. it seems more reasonable to conclude that this blank comes at the end of the section, and thus at the end of the entire lemegeton; it is blank because the work is finished at that point. most of the text of ars nova clearly relates to the first book of the lemegeton, the goetia, and the tools of the trade described therein: the magickal circle and triangle, the hexagrams within the circle and the pentagrams surrounding it. it lists the divine names written in each of these, and adds a short prayer, with one line of prayer per name. this list takes up the entire first page. i believe that the prayers were to be spoken either while drawing the divine names and figur

ear to be transliterations of the hebrew which, in any case, is only partly legible. the second section is a prayer that incorporates some of the latin-alphabet words from the previous section. but it actually makes more sense with those words excised: it is a prayer to god to confine evil and aerial spirits in a brass urn. this immediately brings to mind the brass vessel of solomon, shown in the goetia. possibly this is a prayer to be said while consecrating or preparing such a vessel. however, the divine names in this prayer are not those shown on the vessel in my copy of the manuscript, nor those on the vessel in the crowley/mathers edition of the goetia. possibly this section is a borrowing from some document outside the lemegeton tradition; the extreme corruption of the divine names w

is written. such curses were common in the times when books were reproduced by hand; the time and effort it took to copy them made them much more valuable commodities than our modern mass-produced volumes. its presence in this position is the final confirmation that the order of the pages has been reversed. it should be noted than in the introductory description of the lemegeton (presented in the goetia volume of this series) this book is sometimes erroneously titled ars notoria. the notoria is a separate (and much more complex) work, the text of which was included (without its vitally important illustrations) as an appendix in one copy of the lemegeton. benjamin rowe ars nova 3 the first page of the ars nova eheie. kether. almighty god, whose dwelling is in the highest heavens: 1 haioth

THE LUCIFERIAN PATH THE WITCHES SABBAT MICHAEL W FORD

, containing two direct invocations to cain, is an interesting text for those interested in the more shadowed and luciferian practices of the witchcraft (not wicca. illustrated by elda isela ford, the book of cain offers both initiatory challenge and a luciferian concept of positive self-focus. those who may approach the blackened fires of cain should be cautious, for it destroys and creates. the goetia luciferian edition by michael w. ford illustrated by elda isela ford based on the manuscript of lemegethon, the lesser key of solomon the king modern magick is at a time of opportunity. what is clear is that systems may be adapted based on the predilection of the individual, that certain aspects may be altered for better results. the luciferian edition of the goetia, by michael w. ford is b

solomon the king modern magick is at a time of opportunity. what is clear is that systems may be adapted based on the predilection of the individual, that certain aspects may be altered for better results. the luciferian edition of the goetia, by michael w. ford is based on his own individual practice of goetic magick without the christian dogma of earlier versions. the luciferian edition of the goetia is a grimoire of both high and low sorcery, it unites by the formula of the adversary, the shadow and the light. while the individual seeks to become and initiate self-development, his or her own goals may be achieved by a unity of sorcerous practice and self-deification. the goetia was refined in a luciferian sense by the practices developed partially by aleister crowley, francis barrett

mmoning the goetic daemons. given also are complete descriptions of the tools of ceremonial art and why such instruments are used and what they represent to the luciferian. the goetic circle is also presented anew as well, uniting the sorcerer with the spirit, thus a gateway to godhood and the initiatic familiar known also as the holy guardian angel and the true will. much of the reworking of the goetia were inspired by michael s practice and development of the systems of aleister crowley and especially austin osman spare. no longer does the sorcerer stand in a circle and fear what he has called, but rather confronts and commands those forces connected to his 11 or her own being. it is a system of strength and will by the very foundation up no longer is christian dogma infecting the basis

ne to deny conformity and comfort of associated, lineal belief. spare was himself knowledgeable on the very subject of free belief, anything could flesh with one practicing such concepts. associate, will, manifest and disassociate. associate: to freely dive into a particular concept and absorb it within your subconscious. this activates the very part of your brain which crowley spoke about in the goetia. the brain is stimulated by the specific association and enables a new action to occur. associate charges the belief with the energy necessary to create life, the elemental or servitor itself. you must believe it is possible for such to incarnate. will: the core of all magickal practice and the very brain of luciferian thought. the will is the seat of all libidinous desire and manifestation
