Note: for a slightly altered form of this ritual, please refer to The Book of Lies, Chapter 25.
From The Book of Lies: 25 is the square of 5, and the Pentagram has the red colour of Geburah.
The chapter is a new and more elaborate version of the Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.
It would be improper to comment further upon an official ritual of the A∴A∴
Soror Marfiza's Notes
Crowley's suggestion of impropriety to the contrary, a few more comments.
Here's the translation for the Greek:
- APO PANTOS... - Away, every evil Spirit!
- SOI, O- FALLE... - Unto you, O Phallus, Strength and Eucharist, IAO. For some elucidation on the significance of IAO, you can look at the Lesser Ritual of the Hexagram.
- PRO MOU IUGGES... - Before me the Iunges, behind me the Teletarchai, on my right hand the Sunoches, on my left, the Daimons; for burns about me the star of five, and in the column the star of six stands.
The Iunges, Teletarchai, Sunoches, and Daimones could be considered angelic beings of the Neo-Platonist magico-religious system; they are mentioned in the Chaldean Oracles (wrongly attributed to Zoroaster, who died a thousand years before the Oracles were written). Specifically, according to the Liddell-Scott-Jones Greek Lexicon:
- Iunges comes from the Greek word "Iunx," which is a type of bird called a "wryneck." According to the dictionary: "used as a charm to recover unfaithful lovers, being bound to a revolving wheel." rf. Xenophon and Theocritus." Another definition from that same entry: "Metaphorically, a spell, charm, passionate yearning for...cited generally, and in Aeschylus." Finally, "In plural, the name of certain 'Chaldaic' divinities."
- Teletarchai comes from the Greek words telete, or "rite" (especially, of initiation into the mysteries), and archon/archai, which means "lord" or "leader". "An order of divine beings who bring initial and final terms into relation."
- Sunocheis is the plural of "sunochos," which means "joined together." Metaphorically, it has the meaning of "agreeing with" or "suiting." It also has the meaning of "a narrow passage in the road" which in the New Testament comes to mean "constraint, affliction, anguish."
- Daimon is a deity or divine power; also one's personal destiny. Later, it came to mean the souls of the departed, which linked the gods and men.
