from the Grady Project:

W I T C H

She lays not still within her grave
But, restless, bode herself behave
In manner strange; she trod the air
Where paced the world of Otherwhere
Until again the cycle runs
Its pattern in the weave of suns
And she may lodge herself within
Another form that is of men.

Thelema About Town

A few months ago, this enquiring reporter recommended checking out a certain flea-market stall for an assortment of Thelemic materials that I thought might be of interest. Turns out that--surprise, surprise--this place is selling bootleg copies of O.T.O. tapes. Uh, golly...and I thought I was being diplomatic.
"Ahem." Well, after a brief session of polishing the black-heel marks off of my teeth, I got the info regarding the legitimate channel for the same material, in other words: Cody, who travelleth over the postal system in his name, Joshua A. Norton Oasis, P.O. Box 5311, South San Francisco, CA 94080. Available now: {Note to Web edition -- These cassettes are no longer available}
C1--Crowley: 1st & 2nd Enochian Calls, and Regardie: Enochian Ritual, Liber AL, and a Golden Dawn pronunciation guide.
C2--Regardie: Libri LXV and Ararita, and
C3--Regardie: Libri VII, Israfel, Samekh.
Each tape costs $7.50 plus $1.00 for the first tape and 50 cents for each additional tape. And Cody sez: make checks payable to O.T.O. Accept no substitutes!
In other news, there's a new Thelemic band based in the Santa Cruz area that should be touring soon: Ante Primal Triad. Conceived as a sort of New Aeon outreach group, they were described to me as exploring music in the realm between Heavy Metal and New Age. (Now, that I'd like to hear.) They're bound to be playing soon in your area, especially if you invite them to play at your Thelemic event, and your liquor's good. Contact them through A Ka Dua Camp.
I'm amazed! Startling new scientific evidence proves that someone actually reads this column! And naturally, this startling news came from Norway. Thank you, Frater Arild Stromsvag of Hugin og Munin Lodge, who sent me word about a band I once mentioned, Black Sun Ensemble. May I quote?
"Sjekk ut Tucson, Arizona-lagets 2 lp'er hvis du er klar for trancendentale opplevelser av 5. grad." With a recommendation like that, how can I resist? They happen to be opening for Camper Van Beethoven tomorrow, as I write this column, so I'll let you know how they were next month. Sorry I didn't know about it in advance...
But why doesn't somebody tell me about these things? Just call 415/549- 0952, and everyone in Norway will know.

INTRODUCTION
This divination pattern can be used as a separate reading or it can be built up from a particular card in a previous reading. Although the basic Tetractys includes only cards one through ten, additional rows of cards can be laid down until all 78 cards have been placed. Suggestions for the meanings of additional rows follow the basic instructions.

THE QUESTION

This depends on the use to which this divination mode is put. If it is an extension of a previous reading, the question is the same as that of the previous reading, modified by the particular card of that reading that acts as the significator for the Tetractys.
If this reading mode is performed separately from any previous reading, the question should be chosen as in any normal; manner of Tarot reading.

SIGNIFICATOR

This card should be placed in position one. No card is placed on top of it.

Row One:

Position One: The Significator. If no significator is chosen, the first cards states the basis or purpose of the reading.

Row Two:

Position Two: Active aspect. A general view of the trend toward changes in the future.
Position Three: Passive aspect. A general view of the limitations imposed by the past.

Row Three:

Position Four: Current. A more particular view of the motives and desires at work
                        in producing the future.
Position Five: Counter. A more particular view of the restrictive feelings that
                        oppose change.
Position Six: Issue. The resolution of Current and Counter forces that will
                      be found in the future.

Row Four:

Position Seven: Fire. The spiritual, mental and emotional Forces that are
                          involved in the question.
Position Eight: Air. The mental, emotional and physical Activities that are
                        involved in the question.
Position Nine: Water. The spiritual, mental and emotional Situations that are
                        experienced in the question.
Position Ten: Earth. The mental, emotional and physical Gestalts, Entities
                      and Things involved in the matter.

EXTENSION OF THE READING

If a Fifth Row of five cards is placed under the fourth row, these meanings are
suggested:
Position Eleven: Material Forces that are to be managed.
Position Twelve: Material Situations to be experienced.
Position Thirteen: (placed last in the center) Mental Awareness of the Things, etc.
                              shown by cards 11,12,14,15.
Position Fourteen: Material Activities that will occur.
Position Fifteen: Material Things what will be found.

Additional rows can be laid down after the fifth one. These can be interpreted according to the understanding of the reader, or some of the following ideas may be used:
Row Six; Sixteen through Twenty-one: Matters relating to the six directions of Above, Below, East, West, North and South. The interpretation will follow from the original question (travel, weather, etc.)
Row Seven; Twenty-two through Twenty-eight: Matters relating to the seven ancient planets or to the seven human ages from birth to death.
Row Eight; Twenty-nine through Thirty-six: Effect on the world during the seven human ages and the extra years allotted (alternatively, number 36 can represent what is remembered after the end of life).
Row Nine; Thirty-seven through Forth-five: Three cards each for childhood, adulthood and parentage or lasting work.
Row Ten; Forty-six through Fifty-five: The attainments in the ten consciousness levels of the Tree of Life throughout life or for a period stated in the question.
Row Eleven; Fifty-six through Sixty-six: The eleven most painful moments of life or difficulties to be overcome in the next eleven months.
Row Twelve; Sixty-seven through Seventy-eight: The twelve most happy moments of life or the goals to be pursued in this month and each of the next eleven months or the year.

The Center for Enochian Studies, Appendix v.

1583. Aprilis 29. Monday, after supper: hora 8a.1
i.Dee - I went into my Oratory2, and made a fervent prayer
against the Spiritual enemy: specially meaning the wicked one who
had so suddenly, so subtilty, and so lively counterfeited the hand
and letters of Edward Kelly3 as is here before declared4; and by
the thing itself may appear here. Likewise Edward Kelly on his
ii.knees (at the green chair standing before the chimney) did pray:
after which prayers ended; 5 yea, rather, before they were ended,
on my behalf, Edward Kelly espied a spiritual creature; come to my
Table: Whom he took to be IL6., and so, aloud, said. "He is
here." and thereupon I came to my desk, to Write as occasion
should serve:7 And before I began to do anything I rehearsed part
of my intent, uttered to god by prayer, and half turned my speech
to God himself, as the cause did seem to require. Thereupon that
Spiritual Creature. Who as yet had said nothing, suddenly used
these words: _____ "I give place to my better."
i.Edward Kelly: There seemeth to me Uriel8 to be come, and IL to
be gone away.
  
 Dee -
   Then began that new come Creature to say thus:
 Uriel:
   Most abundant and plentiful are the great mercies of God
   unto them which truly and unfeignedly fear, honor and be-
   lieve him. The Lord hath heard thy prayers and, I am
iii.  URIEL, and I have brought the peace of God,
   Which shall from henceforth visit you.
  
If I had not made this action perfect (saith the Lord) and
wrought some perfection in you, to the end you might perform; yea,
if I had not had mercies (saith the Lord) over the infinite number
iv.and multitude of Souls, which are yet to put on the vileness and
corruption of the flesh.
Or if it were not time to look down, and
behold the sorrow of my Temple. Yet would I, for my promise sake,
and the establishing of my kingdom, Verify my mercies upon the sons
v.of men. Whereunto I have Chosen three of you, as the mouths and
Instruments of my determined purpose9. Therefore (sayeth the
vi.Lord), Be of stout and courageous mind in me, for me, and for my
truth sake. And Fear not the assaults of temptation, For I have
said: "I am with you." But as mercy is necessary for those that
vii.repent, and faithfully forget their offenses. So is Temptation
requisite and must ordinarily follow those, whom it pleaseth him to
illuminate with the beams of triumphant Sanctification. If
Temptations were not, how should the Sons of men (sayeth the Lord)
know me to be merciful? But I am honored in hell, and worshipped
with the blasphemers:
Pugna erit, vobis autem victoria
Even the victory was thine, of the Battle which was.
Yet, albeit, (thus sayeth my message) I will defend you from
the cruelty of these days to come and will make you perfect:
viii.that perfectly you may begin in the works of my perfection: But
What? and dost thou (Satan)10 think to triumph? Behold (sayeth
the God of Justice) I will banish thy servants from this place and
region, and will set stumbling blocks before the feet of thy
ministers. Therefore, be it unto thee, as thou hast deserved. And
be it to this people, and holy place, (as it is, the Will of God;
ix.Which I do pronounce) light without darkness. Truth without
false
hood, righteousness without the works of wickedness. I have
pronounced it, and it is done.
x.But thou, o youngling* (but old sinner), Why dost thou suffer
thy blindness thus to increase; or why dost thou not yield thy
Limbs11 to the service and fulfilling of an eternal verity? Pluck
up thy heart. Let it not be hardened. Follow the way that leadeth
to the knowledge of the end; the open sight of god his word
Verified, for his kingdoms sake.
You began in Tables12, and that of small account. But be
faithful; for you shall be written within Tables of perfect and
everlasting remembrance. Considering the truth; Which is the
message of him Which is the fountain and Life of the true, perfect,
and most glorious life to come: Follow, Love, and diligently
Contemplate the mysteries there
in.
He that hath done this evil, hath not only sinned against
thee, but against God, and against his truth. Judgment is not of
me, and therefore I can not pronounce it: But What his Judgment
is, he knoweth in himself. His name is
xi.

xii.and he is the firebrand14, which hath followed thy soul from the
beginning
: yea seeking his destruction, who can better
counterfeit, than he, that in thy wickedness is chief Lord and
Master15 of thy Spirits; or who hath been acquainted with the
secrets of man's fingers, so much as he that hath been a director?
xiii.My sayings are no accusation, neither is it my property to be
defiled with such profession
16. But I counsel you generally; and
advertise you through the grace, and by the spirit of unspeakable
mercy.
xiv.This night, if your prayers had not been; yea if they had not
pierced into the seat of him which sitteth above: Thou, yea (I
say) thou hadst been carried, and taken away, this night, into a
wilderness, so far distant hence Northward17, that thy destruction
had followed.
Therefore Lay away thy Works of youth; and fly from fleshly
Vanities, if not upon Joy and pleasure of this presence, yet for
the glory of him that hath chosen you.
  
 I say, be strong. Be Humble with Obedience:
xv.For All the things, that have been spoken of,
 shall come to pass. And there shall not a
 letter of the book of this prophesy perish.
  
Finally, God hath blessed you: and will keep you from

xvii.
temptation,Dee and will be merciful unto you, and perfect you; for
the dignity of your profession* sake.
Which, World Without end, forever and ever; With us and all
xviii.creatures, and in the light of his own countenance, be honored.
Amen Amen Amen.

Dee - Hereupon I made most humble prayer with hearty thanks to
our God, for his help, comfort, and judgment against our enemy, in
this case (so greatly concerning his glory). And at my standing
up, I understood that Uriel was out of sight to Edward Kelly Yet I
held on my purpose to thank him, and to praise god for Uriel that
his so faithful. ministry unto his divine Majesty, executed to
our needful comfort in so vehement a temptation.
Deo nostro Omnipotenti,
sit omnis Laus, honor, et gratiarum actio, nunc et in perpetuum.

Our God, All Powerful, to whom I render all praise, honor,
and thanksgiving, now and forever more.
Amen.

1.     8 o'clock in the morning, on Monday the 29th day of April, in the year of

the Lord MDLXXXIII. This Action takes place three days after Dee
delivered the manuscript of his book AN ADVISE & DISCOURSE ABOUT
THE REFORMATION OF THE VULGAR IULIAN YEERE - written by her
Majesties commandment and the Lords of the Privy Cousaile - anno - 1582.
[prob. ref. to textual composition date?]
Op. Cit. Center for Enochian Studies, THELEMA Lodge O.T.O. (Berkeley
CA:July 1989ev.) fn.#6. & Iohn Dee, A LETTER Containing A MOST BRIEF
DISCOURSE APOLOGETICALL, With A Plane DEMONSTRATION, And
A Fervent PROTESTATION, for the Lawfull, Sincere, Very Faithfull And
CHRISTIAN Course, Of The PHILOSOPHICAL Studies And Exercises, Of A
Certain Studious GENTLEMAN: AN Ancient SERVAUNT To Her Most Excellent
MAJESTY ROYALL. (Peter Short: London 1599.) item #46.
2.     Compare this to Dee and Kelly's first Action together for some startling
similarities regarding both conditions and procedures.
3.     Dee abbr. this "E.K." throughout.
4.     Cf. op.cit. THELEMA Lodge O.T.O.
5.     Lacuna: poss. stricken 'O', or prob. '[illegible vowel]. .s'.
6.     IL a spirit identified with the 49th square [file VII. rank 7] location (lower left corner): 21
on the "The Table Of The Seven Names Of God That Not Even The Angels Know";       8
                                                                                                                                         .
This is synonymous with the ligature E + L vide "+++EL++++" located within the
primary (topmost) side of the innermost heptagon on the Sigillvm Dei AEmeth:
"A Son of a Son Of Light."
7.     Lacuna : ". . : or require" stricken by Dee.
8.     Note the tablet preceding these footnotes, vide THE SACRED MAGIC OF
ABRAMELIN THE MAGE, transl. S.L.M. Mathers, facs. De Laurence (Chicago IL:
1948) pp.268 & 123-159. The wise may by their ingenium discover in these
pages the most sublime mystery that, A. Crowley puts forth in his Confessions,
is herein concealed. Once unveiled the mage is able to locate and exploit the
control vector connecting the so called `evil' daemonic with the 'good' angelic
systems; and resolve the paradoxical mystery concerning why legend has it that
the Demons built Solomon's Temple, and that the Angelic Hosts have from Sodom
to the Apocalypse been associated with one continuous chain of the most gruesomely
destructive acts of violence that the mind of man has ever conceived.
        Enochian scholars will note the marked similarity to the formulas Set forth in the
Key Of The AEthyrs, and the central twelvefold tablet on the Tabula Sancta.
9.     Including Albert Laski?
10.   Dee has the more accurate SATHAN: from
Shin-Taw-Nun = 750 / 1400
11.   arch. Eng. 'Lymmes'.
12.   Tables of 'Magikal Squares' form the principle topographical models wherewith
Dr. Dee's Angelic System is able to attach the multidimensional coordinates to
Metaphysical paradigms.
13.   Belmagel: BEL + MAGe + eL = The Angel of the Magick of the God of Heaven &
Earth. Literally in the modern American dialect of The English Language cf.
THE AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.
14.   The actual grammar; including the syllogisms derived from the use of its theorems
are, in fact, upon close critical analysis, somewhat less than ambiguous and will
yield, even through limited Socratic dialectic to the complicity of the spirits
involved. Either Belmagel (and prob. Lundrumguffa* before him) are agents of
Uriel (Chaldee > Heb. Angel of Light) masquerading as daemons to act as god's
accuser and enforcer, Or Lucifer (IndoAryan > Latin: The Agency of Lumination)
and his fallen Angels are posing as Angels to instigate their coming insurrection
against the forces of Yahweh.
* L uN DRUM GUFFA = The poundings of the laughter of the one God?
15.   'Lord and Master' are synonymous with BEL and MAGE both respectively and
collectively, likewise EL with 'director'.
16.   Manipulation: possibly a token of the Masons(deriv. P.I.E. Magh- > Mage, magick,
magnitude etc.) who built the Temple of Sol Om On (cf. Pike & M.P. Hall et al)
these grips and signals used by secret orders of Alchemists etc. were used for
recognition and admission to their self tyled Synagogues of Satan. "Pugnam
Super Pugnam."
17.   Northward, i.e. the direction attributed to Earth in both its elemental and primary
planetary aspect. Earth rules both URIEL & BEL.
