Auto-Talismanic Ritual for 2022

We will be performing the Auto-Talismanic Ritual for the 2022 Winter Solstice tomorrow evening, Tuesday December 20th, at the Ritual Workshop. Doors open at 7:30 with the ritual to begin around 8 PM.

0. The Temple

The temple is set up with an altar in the center, on which sits the Table of Art. A pitcher filled with wine or juice is placed in the center of the Table. The banishing dagger, invoking wand, and bell chime are placed on the altar. Magus wears white and Sophia wears black. Throughout the ritual, Sophia and Magus face each other across the altar, moving appropriately throughout the various ceremonial forms.

I. Opening

As each person enters the temple, they are handed a glass filled with salt water. Once all are present, Magus takes up the banishing dagger and performs the Star Ruby.

Sophia: We take refuge in Nuit, the blue-lidded daughter of sunset, the naked brilliance of the voluptuous night sky, as we issue the call to the awakened nature of all beings, for every man and every woman is a star.


Magus: We take refuge in Hadit, the secret flame that burns in every heart of man and in the core of every star, as we issue the call to our own awakened natures, arousing the coiled serpent about to spring.


Sophia: We take refuge in Heru-Ra-Ha, who wields the wand of double power, the wand of the force of Coph Nia, but whose left hand is empty for he has crushed an universe and naught remains, as we unite our awakened natures with those of all beings everywhere and everywhen, dissolving all obstacles and healing all suffering.


Magus: For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every way perfect.

Sophia:: All is pure and present and has always been so, for existence is pure joy; all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass and are done; but there is that which remains. To this realization we commit ourselves – pure and total presence.

All: So mote it be.

Magus takes up the ritual wand and performs the Star Sapphire.

All: Now I begin to pray: Thou Child,
Holy Thy name and undefiled!
Thy reign is come: Thy will is done.
Here is the Bread; here is the Blood.
Bring me through midnight to the Sun!
Save me from Evil and from Good!
That Thy one crown of all the Ten
Even now and here be mine.

Bell Chime.

II. Cleansing

Each person present dips the index finger of their right hand into their cup and stirs the water counter-clockwise. As this is done, all limitations and restrictions are visualized streaming into the cup where they are absorbed by the salt water. Each person then breathes into the cup three times. The cups are emptied into a prepared container, which is placed outside the temple. Each person then visualizes their Holy Guardian Angel appearing above the central altar. All recite the following prayer as call-and-response led by Officiants.

I am my Angel’s beloved.
My lungs take in Hir breath.
My veins run with Hir red.
Blessed are the feet that have walked my path of trials and pleasure.
My hands are Hir hands.
I am God as surely as I created the universe at the beginning.
I need bow down before no one,
Nor before any deity.
My body is Hir body,
Glistening with the sweat of stars.
My tears and my joy are Hir gifts;
I bestow these as I will.
Angel within and without!
Fill me with the light that exposes evil;
Fill me with the light that evil flees from;
Fill me with the light that illuminates me in my hiding,
That I may come forth from hiding and bathe in the joy of the light.
So mote it be!

“Your HGA responds to this prayer by pouring blessings upon each of you in the form of warm, welcoming white light that originates from the heart center of the Angel.”

Throughout this next section, the cups are all filled from the pitcher in the center.

Magus: For My law is love unto all beings. Mine is the secret that opens the door of youth, and Mine is the cup of the wine of life that is the holy grail of immortality.

Sophia: I AM open to the truth of my Being, my purpose on earth and unfoldment of my destiny now. I act upon that purpose without hesitation.

All (Prompted by Officiants): EROS!

Magus: You who seek to know Me, know that the seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless you know the Mystery: for if that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without.

Sophia: I have now overcome all self doubt, and all lack of trust in self. I now allow the I AM presence to fill my life with the truth of my divinity.

All (Prompted by Officiants): NUOS!

Magus: I am the soul of nature that gives life to the universe. From Me all things proceed and unto Me they must return.

Sophia: I have transformed my desire for abundance into an openness to receive this abundance on all levels and in all areas of my life now.

All (Prompted by Officiants): SYNCHRONOS!

Magus: Since I am Infinite Space, and the Infinite Stars thereof, do ye also thus. Bind nothing! The word of Sin is Restriction.

Sophia: I AM a cosmic presence of total freedom with the ability to choose and hold all I desire to have. I take my first steps of freedom now, knowing the universe always takes the second for my complete support.

All (Prompted by Officiants): ALLAGE!

Magus: The cup is now cleansed, we are filling the cup!

III. Invocation

Magus then performs a modified Greater Invoking Ritual of the Hexagram for the Sun, using the Invoking Hexagram of the Beast with HERU-RA-HA as the god-name following ARARITA.

Sophia: O Thou Unity of all things: as the sun that rolleth through the twelve mansions of the skies, so art Thou, O God my God. I cannot slay Thee, for Thou art everywhere; lo! though I lick up the Boundless Light, the Boundless, and the Not, there still shall I find Thee, Thou Unity of Unities, Thou Oneness, O Thou perfect Nothingness of Bliss!

“Now visualize the image of your HGA merging with your physical body. As this happens, the light from the Angel’s heart center changes from white to red. Once the merging is complete, the red light emanates from your own heart center and fills the cup as we chant.”

Led by Officiants, all chant ABRAHADABRA. This chant continues as the visualization is maintained. When Magus perceives that the cups are filled with energy, he rings the bell and the chant stops.

IV. Integration

Officiants: I now reveal with resonant being increasing magical skill and physical health every day on all levels, enjoying strong, loving family bonds, wonderful friendships, and rich alliances, while creating a Life of inspiring Art and Laughter, appreciated by everyone, including myself. I support this Life easily, drawing abundant resources through independent, joyful work which provides for all my material obligations and allows ample time and resources for personal development, and for travel as I will upon the face of the Earth. I now live my life according to my True Will.

All then visualize their intentions for the year as they drink from their respective cups.

Magus: Then, at his prayer, shall the chamber be filled with a light insufferable for splendour, and a perfume intolerable for sweetness. And his Holy Guardian Angel shall appear unto him, yea, his Holy Guardian Angel shall appear unto him, so that he shall be rapt away into the Mystery of Holiness.

All are seated and join in a short silent meditation delineated by the bell chime. When complete, Magus and Sophia return to the altar.

Sophia: And more than this it is not necessary to say, for his Angel shall have entreated him kindly, and showed him in what manner he may be most perfectly invoked. And unto him that hath this Master there is nothing else that he needeth, so long as he continue in the knowledge and conversation of the Angel, so that he shall come at last into the City of the Pyramids.

Magus: Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth.

Sophia: Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and Heru-Ra-Ha is the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.

“The visualization of yourself as your HGA now dissolves into pure red light that is absorbed perfectly and completely into your heart.”

A brief pause. Then:

Officiants: There is success.

Bell Chime.

V. Closing

All rise.

All: May the benefit of this act and all acts be dedicated unto the complete liberation and supreme enlightenment of all beings everywhere, pervading space and time. So mote it be. May the benefits of practice, ours and others, come to fruition, ultimately and immediately, and we remain in a state of presence. AH!

Led by the two Officiants, all perform the Qabalistic Cross.

Magus: I now declare this temple duly closed.

Bell Chime. The rite is at an end.
