Flaming Sword Sepher Sephiroth

The Flaming Sword Sepher Sephiroth is the result of many years of practical work and research. It gives us great pleasure to announce the release of this whole work in two volumes of over 1000 pages.

Flaming Sword Sepher Sephiroth, Treatise on GematriaThe Flaming Sword is a comprehensive, unique treatise on Gematria, revealing the pre-religious Gnosis and its relation to Thelema. In addition to the substantial Sepher Sephiroth (‘book of numbers’) there is an introductory guide to the use of the book, tables of Hebrew, Greek and Enochian values, prime numbers, and a complete set of Magical Kameas with corrected and redrawn planetary seals and sigils.

The entire Enochian vocabulary of John Dee is included and augmented, as well as Latin, Sanskrit, Arabic and ancient Egyptian.

With the kind permission of Steffi Grant and Starfire Publishing, substantial quotations from Kenneth Grant’s seminal work, The Nightside of Eden, are included.

The two volumes of the book  serve as a veritable grimoire for those engaged with the more specialised work of the (Egyptian) Book of the Law, Liber AL vel Legis. The Flaming Sword provides multiple solutions to all of the riddles of Liber AL vel Legis, as well as some of the most cryptic passages.

By including words and numbers that have special application and meaning to those who work with the Thelemic, Typhonian or ‘93’ magical current, the legacy of our work is powerfully encoded so that future generations of magicians may continue its development.

Sepher Sephiroth: Treatise on Gematria

The word ‘Qabalah’ implies something passed on from mouth to ear—a whisper in the ear, to those prepared to receive it. Gematria is the association of a word or phrase with another word or phrase sharing the same numerical value. The skilful use and understanding of Gematria provides a vessel for the incarnation of spiritual ideas. With persistent practice, a number will instantly convey all of its related meanings to the trained mind; the subtlest nuances will be perceived and refreshed, again and again. An enduring plumbline is forged between the rational mind and Deep Mind so the consciousness of the magician habitually inhabits and explores spaces that would otherwise remain inaccessible.

Capricorn Release: Hermetic Astrology

The Task of the Probationer is to ‘Know Thyself’. It could be said that the same task continues through every grade, degree or state of consciousness that anyone can conceive. What better place to begin such a momentous work can there be than understanding our natal horoscope? Astrology, thanks largely to the popular notion of what that means, has become widely discredited. However, the language and symbolism of astrology, in its classical form at least, is identical to the language of Hermetic magick. The hieroglyphs of the stars are the primal type of all language, existing long before any rune was shaped by human hand. While getting to grips with the language of astrology is central to the path of magick, it has been difficult to recommend any book on the subject – until now!

Ordo Astri Capricorn Book Release: Hermetic AstrologyThe primary aim of Hermetic Astrology is to explain esoteric or magical astrology in a simple and concise way. The veriest beginner will quickly gain an understanding of their natal horoscope, while those already well-versed in the subject will find here magical and esoteric applications for the art that rarely, if ever, appear in textbooks on astrology. Here is a complete course in astrology covering astrological symbolism, chart interpretation, the dignities of signs, houses and planets, aspects and astrological timing. Esoteric knowledge is revealed concerning the Part of Fortune, the Dragon Stars or Nodes of the Moon, the Egyptian Ka or double, the Holy Guardian Angel and the Evil Genius, Outer Gateways and the use of the natal chart as a Master Key of Life.
