Sometimes we need quick simple access to angelic or spiritual forces to accomplish things for us. Full Solomonic evocations, or even smaller methods like the Heptameron or Trithemius are not always convenient for various reasons.
Back in 2005 I determined that I wanted a quick simple way to work with spirits. I began using this pretty routinely as I was beginning to prepare for working with more traditional methods.
It was very good for consecrating talismans and for getting quick results to simple requests. This is not so great for asking the angels questions or scrying, except through dream work.
It's also a good stepping stone for those who are familiar with modern magic technique like the LBRP who are trying to bridge their way towards actual practical evocation.
Over the next few days I'll post some stories about the use of this ritual as well as a method for combining it with other simple practical magic.
The Solomonic Hexagram Ritual
I. Kabbalistic Cross.
Perform the Kabbalistic Cross
II. Formation of the circle
Advance to the east and trace the fire invoking Hexagram vibrating “AL”
Advance to the South and trace the Earth invoking Hexagram vibrating “YAH”
Advance to the West and trace the Water invoking Hexagram vibrating “AGLA”
Advance to the North and trace the Air invoking Hexagram vibrating “ADNI”
Return to the center
III. Invocation of the planetary Hexagrams
Advance to each quarter beginning in the East and ending in the North tracing the invoking Hexagrams of the planetary sphere required and vibrate the corresponding name.
IV. Invocation of the Spirit of the Planet
Return to the center. Extend the arms in the TAU then turn the palms face up; keeping the palms flat and extended raise the forearms into an obtuse angle. This sign signifies the reception of divine force.
Say the appropriate invocation for the desired planetary spirit.
V. Kabbalistic Cross
Perform the Kabbalistic cross.
The appropriate Solomonic pentacle from the second book of the Greater Key should be used in conjunction with these invocations as a means of directing the nature of the manifestation. The magician should also be clearly aware of the purpose for which he is performing the invocation. If he wishes to apply the force to a talisman to keep for general use he may apply the pentacle to an appropriate disk. If he wishes to invoke the spirit for a particular use he should scribe the seal upon some relevant portion of his body with a temporary means that may be removed at will. If there is no specifically relevant portion for the intention the seal may be placed upon a body part corresponding to the sefira to which said sphere is assigned. The ability to remove the seal with immediacy is necessary and is of the utmost importance.
