MAGIC



MAGIC begins with the Knowledge of PANTACLES, TALISMAN and PERFUME.

The PANTACLE is made in a metal fit to receive the shock of the Astral Plane.

All Magic is made in the Mental or Sub-Lunar Plane. But at times there is force we can’t control, and we need a Pantacle to protect ourselves.

The 1st is the Pythagorean Pantacle, made from a polygon of five sides, ie a pentagon, (pantagon).





Directions for its making:

1. Circle with diameters crossing at O.

2. Between O and D find mid-point M.

3. With radius AM make NP.

4. “ “ NA “ AQ.

5. “ “ PA “ AR.

6. Join 5 points as shown.



The 2nd is the Star of David, which, with additions, is the Seal of Solomon.

This is made from a Hexagon.







For protection when making Magic we need these two Pantacles raised in LEAD thus: (for the force returning from SATURN is terrific).

Join these two Symbols by Cord, 5 Star in front, 6 Start at back. This is the origin of the SCAPULAR of the R.C. Church.

Sun-plexus = 5 points

Sacro-plexus = 6 points
