Liber XXV – The Star Ruby


A∴A∴
Publication in Class D


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 forcibly thy breath, cry APO PANTOS KAKODAIMONOS.

With the same forefinger touch thy forehead, and say SOI, thy member, and say Ô PHALLE, thy right shoulder, and say ISCHUROS, thy left shoulder, and say EUCHARISTOS; then clasp thine hands, locking the fingers, and cry IAÔ.

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 THÊRION. 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 Paian, with these words IÔ PAN, with the signs of N.O.X.

Extend the arms in the form of a Tau and say low but clear:
PRO MOU YUNGES
OPISÔ MOU TELETARCHAI
EPI DEXIA SUNOCHEIS
EPARISTERA DAIMONES
PHLEGEI GAR PERI MOU HO ASTÊR TÔN PENTE
KAI EN TÊI STÊLÊI HO ASTÊR TÔN HEX HESTÊKE.

Repeat the Cross Qabalistic, as above, and end as thou didst begin.
