Contact the Order: If you have a general enquiry please check this website for information before attempting to contact us directly.

Membership: A full initiate member of the Order is any person in the degree of Neophyte or above in our Collegium. It is easy to obtain Associate memberhip but full initiate membership takes hard work and dedication involving intense spiritual aspiration, continuous study, long practice and the keeping of a diary record.

We do not hold lodges or public meetings. It is not possible to ‘transfer’ a grade or degree obtained through membership of another group or organisation.  It must not be thought that our aims and ideals are ‘generic’, and so comparable with other organisations. Preferably aspirants will have read and studied some of our most recent works.

An overview of our degree structure may be viewed here.
Our in-depth guide in all matters of initiation is presented here.

Contact the Order: Thunder Perfect GnosisOur most recent work, Thunder Perfect Gnosis—Intellectual Flower of Mind is very highly recommended as it includes ten chapters on Raja Yoga, which is our core practical basis for advanced students. The method of Hermetic Tantra-yoga as is given in works such as Magical Theurgy is highly recommended for those who have studied the Western Mystery Tradition and who wish to extend their knowledge of it well beyond that which is available elsewhere in the public domain. Our course in applied Qabalah, Hermetic Qabalah Foundation has been re-opened to suitable applicants and the book, which includes a complete course in theory and practice, is available from our website here.

There are three stages on the way to obtaining full membership: Associate, Student, Practitioner or Apprentice. If the Apprentice is deemed successful and his work approved, then he is advanced to the first initiate degree in the Hermetic Order of the Star and Snake. Aspirants are expected to manage their own contributions to the Order. This may be done through regular or one-off donations, as according to their means.
