The Ritual of the Star Ruby
Facing East, in the centre, draw deep deep deep thy breath, closing thy mouth with thy right forefinger
prest against thy lower lip. Then, dashing down the hand with a great sweep back and out, expelling
thy breath, cry:
ΑΠΟ ΠΑΝΤΟΣ ΚΑΚΟΔΑΙΜΟΝΟΣ.
With the same forefinger touch thy forehead and say ΣΟΙ. thy member, and say Ω ΦΑΛΛΕ thy right shoulder, and say ΙΣΧΥΡΟΣ 1 thy left shoulder, and say ΕΥΧΑΡΙΣΤΟΣ; then clasp thine hands, locking the fingers, and cry ΙΑΩ.
Advance to the East. Imagine strongly a Pentagram, aright, in thy forehead. Drawing the hands to the eyes, fling it forth, making the sign of Horus, and roar ΘΗΡΙΟΝ. Retire thine hand in the sign of Hoor-paar-Kraat.
Go round to the North and repeat; but say NUIT.
Go round to the West and repeat; but whisper BABALON.
Go round to the South and repeat; but bellow HADIT.
Completing the circle widdershins, retire to the centre and raise thy voice in the Pæan, with these words ΙΩ ΠΑΝ with the signs of N.O.X.
Extend the arms in the form of a Tau, and say low but clear:
ΠΡΟ ΜΟΥ ΙΥΓΓΕΣ ΟΠΙΣΩ ΜΟΥ ΤΕΛΕΤΑΡΧΑΙ ΕΠΙ ΔΕΞΙΑ ΣΥΝΟΧΕΙΣ ΕΠΑΡΙΣΤΕΡΑ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΕΣ ΦΛΕΓΕΙ ΓΑΡ ΠΕΡΙ ΜΟΥ Ο ΑΣΤΗΡ ΤΩΝ ΠΕΝΤΕ ΚΑΙ ΕΝ ΤΗΙ ΣΤΗΛΗΙ Ο ΑΣΤΗΡ ΤΩΝ ΕΞ ΕΣΤΗΚΕ
Repeat the Cross Qabalistic, as above, and end as thou didst begin.
1. The secret sense of these words is to be sought in the numeration thereof.
(Note by David Bersson) In the Chaldean Oracles the Names from the second mind are used in this ceremony will have to be studied carefully. In spite of the Hellenistic Temples being all shattered by the monotheistic heathens and the religion left to to die out its metaphysics is clearly cogent with some of the metaphysics of our Path. Therefore the Kabbalah assists us to see some of the correspondences. (but Not All, of Course) Now, if you attribute the world of Atziluth to the Boundless to Ain Soph it does not absolutely correspond with Intelligible and the paternal depth. By what twist of logic does it correspond???? Ain Soph is closer to the manifestation of None than the intelligible & paternal depth metaphysics of the first mind. Again, these are two different metaphysical manifestations of Genesis and to permit yourself to dogmatically correspond them is sheer folly. Naturally, the concept of Hadit corresponding to the paternal depth of the first mind would not of occurred to those trying to unlock the mysteries the Chaldean Oracles. Yet, Nu being the hiding of Hadit is clearly a real key.
I absolutely disagree with Hecate being this Goddess of the Witches where in Hellenistic metaphysics She takes on Her proper role in a unique Genesis. Some of the Wiccans, noting She partakes of the essence of the Moon Spiritually do not study Her metaphysics and give Her what they consider to be the attributes of Nephthys. I disagree with this correspondence. You should study the metaphysics of Hecate as perceived by the Chaldean. Clearly, Her attribute to correspond with the world soul makes nonsense of these Wiccan infatuations which has created misunderstanding when expounding Hellenistic Metaphysics. Also, if you want to state philosophers attribute Chaldean metaphysics to Zoroaster, now you go right ahead and follow fools who ape the words of those who forget that we have six figures in history all with names that are supposed to be him.
Chaldean Manifestation can be partially unlocked by the Kabbalah, of course, but it is much better to attribute the symbolism to the perceptions from the Book of the Law where you can magically align these forces as a magical gesture stepping forth from the forces manifesting from Liber XXV.
