After years of trying to convince me that I am not Golden Dawn, it seems that people now want me to belong to their small pond and take the Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea with them. Their argument is that we are using the Golden Dawn rituals and teachings so we MUST be Golden Dawn. Fortunately life is not that simple.At a practical level, we can look at why MOAA is NOT Golden Dawn. The Golden Dawn shunts on very clear tracks you did something, you passed a test you got a grade, you got to the top, you hung around a bit and taught others. We do not do that…Perhaps, we need to define what Golden Dawn means.
You will have heard how I believe that the Golden Dawn egregore is hopelessly contaminated by the antics of some of its key leaders. Here is a run down of things that the Golden Dawn Internet trolls have in common and how you might defend yourself against a Golden Dawn sock puppetInternet trolls are not very bright, are fixated on a single idea and can be defeated by using your headThey are never use the name of the leader of a group or identify the group which they belong. Generally, a Golden Dawn leader has to be seen in the eyes of their followers as being above being an Internet troll. If they have a large membership they will use
Beyond the Sun – the secret teachings of the Missing Golden Dawn Order (click to order)“This book contains the Secret Inner Order Teachings of the missing order of the Golden Dawn – Whare Ra. Whare Ra managed to keep secret and above all keep running long after the other Golden Dawn magical orders had given up the ghost. Closing in the late 1970s the Order was founded by Dr Robert Felkin nearly 100 years ago. Working in New Zealand, Whare Ra became a secret forefront of occult teaching.Nick Farrell publishes the Second Order Rituals of this Order including the 6=5 and 7=4 in their complete and unedited state as well as the 6=5 training papers and lectures. He also examines the
Since the Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea decided to leave the Golden Dawn, there has been some somewhat strange comments about egregores including one very confused comment from one clearly uninformed “chief of an order.” Ironically there was been one comment from a chap who has spent a long time claiming I was not Golden Dawn for years, suddenly insisting I was because I did the same rituals as him. It is nice to be wanted, I guess!Since I learnt about egoregore early on in my training it never occurred to me that people did not really understand how they worked, so I thought I better explain. If anything it will make why we have walked away from the
For a long while I have described the Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea as a traditional Golden Dawn group. From today it is not and we will stop describing ourselves in that way.MOAA will no longer look to the past for any particular knowledge or security, but to its future. And rather than trying to pour new wine into old skins we will be more secure in our own independence and ability to move in our own direction. The word “Golden Dawn” has come to mean the tradition which encompasses all its off-shoots including the modern renditions of the Stella Matutina, Smaragdum Thallasses and the AO. However most of these traditions do not run anything like the original Golden
I am famous for being blunt and the headline statement will get a few people upset. I have said over a number of years that I do not believe that astral initiation into the Golden Dawn work, but have not said why.I would LOVE astral initiation to work. As the head of an order, it would mean that I could set up temples in the US or other far-flung parts of the world at a great rate. If I was charging fees for this, I could make a bomb. It would enable groups to be established without me having to bring people to Rome for training. In short, astral initiation is a tool for empire building rather than creating magicians.
For many years I have kept SECRET this most excellent ELIXIR which ALCHEMICALY TRANSMUTES even the most base of the animal kingdom into something tasty. It was past to me by my on SECRET CHIEFS and I transmitted it to those of the most SENIOR BRETHRENin ITALY where they had heard of it not. It should be prepared after much prayer for the making of the SECRET SAUCE is not to be embarked upon lightly. If it is prepared incorrectly it can partake of too much of OUR FIRE and not be pleasant. But if you follow the MIDDLE WAY between FIRE and Water you shall find the elixir should transform into a REDDENING of pure Fire EARTH.It is ideal

Yesterday a wonderful Jupiter talisman was sent to me from the American magician Rufus Opus who makes them for people here . Rufus, along with JakeStratton Kentare one of the few people I know who actually make magical material according to the rules. My talisman was made at the hour of Jupiter when it was particularly comfy in Cancer. It was blessed by Rufus in the expectation that it would be initiated by me when it arrives (that is a reference to the Z2 documents). You just have to hold it to know that this is a serious talisman which positively oozes Jupiter energy. However, the owner’s manual that Rufus provided with the talisman got me thinking.The new cover for the
The Golden Dawn Temple Deck by Harry WendrichThe modern Golden Dawn has a bit of a problem with using the reversed pentagram due to some very mixed messages about its use by its founder Samuel Mathers.Mathers firstly tells students that it is an evil symbol and you should not use it, however later on he tells you that it has a use for controlling evil spirits. It is possible that Mathers changed his mind, but it is equally possible that he expected people to work out what the reversed pentagram actually meant.In Mather’s Last Secret I printed the only version seen of the original GD portal ritual. In it Mathers describes the Devil card which shows the Devil with an
