Star Trek Ritual

The Golden Dawn cipher manuscripts were used to create the Golden Dawn rituals.  They provided the skeleton for all the rituals from 0=0 to 4=7.  However Mathers was looking at the ritual through a late Victorian Masons eyes, he could have easily have created a different ritual.  What would have happened if the Cipher manuscript had been found in the Star Trek universe?    Newly created from the cipher manuscripts is the Star Trek opening (and it really is created from the ciphers with a little tweaking). Officers of the Golden Dawn robed up for the ritual.All assemble put on uniforms, communicators, etc.Captain: Officers of the Bridge, assist me to accelerate this ship to warp speed.Communications officer: Hailing all hostiles to

A Golden Dawn Lingo translation guide

A long time ago a friend of mine Clive Harper published a list of what people in the Servants of the Light really meant when they said certain phrases.  I thought I would update it for the Golden Dawn tradition. I might add to itWhat Golden Dawn people mean when they say the following things:This is a Golden Dawn oral tradition:  I made it up.This is a Golden Dawn tradition:  Don’t blame me I didn’t make it up.This is a Cabbalistic tradition:  Don’t blame me, god made it up.The Golden Dawn used to do it this way:  My old temple used to do it this way.They are an independent order: No one wants to go near them.They are an independent

When did Thelema become the Westboro Baptist Church?

For those who want the background of what I am commenting on have a look at the watchers of the dawnsite.Thanks WikicommonsAs I started to work with underworld deities I started to warm to some of Crowley’s material and was starting to care less about some of the doubts I had about Thelema.  But recently the antics of three “high profile” Thelemites have led me to question where that religion is going. I know that the behaviour of three does not define a religion, but these three have managed to come up with something which is nothing short of an atrocity based on their no doubt deep conviction that is what Thelema says.My main focus is really the point which

Don Kraig has died

It is with great sadness that I announce that Donald Michael Kraig took his last breaths last night (3/17/2014) and died. He has crossed over to Summerland and is finally no longer suffering. The type of cancer he had was just too aggressive for us to do any more treatments and his body finally gave way. He did not suffer. He simply slipped away in his sleep.In lieu of flowers or cards, please consider donating to the fund below to help offset medical expenses and, now, funeral expenses.At a later date to be named, there will be a memorial service celebrating his life and what he meant to all of us.Namaste,Holly Allender Kraig Last night Don Kraig lost his battle with


If you are living across the pond you might what to look up the MagickAll (April 5 to 13, 2014) gathering hosted by David Griffin's HOGD/AO. You can read all about it here It will be held  on the outskirts of Las Vegas Nevada and will feature speakers on Wicca, the Golden Dawn and General Magic.

Heal the Sick and that freely

There are moments when I find myself out of sync with the rest of humanity and the occult community.  I heard that Don Kraig was sick and I thought, lets rally occultists to do a regular healing ritual for him. Someone else thought raise some cash for him so he that he does not have to worry about medical costs.  A group started on Facebook and all seemed quite reasonable.  It seemed normal.  It struck me the world was better off with Don Kraig in it.But apparently in this modern world this attitude is wrong.  The head  of the Gnostic Church of L.V.X  Paul Joseph Rovelli  said Don Kraig was a fraud.  Since Rovelli could afford expensive medical insurance, so

What things were like in Whare Ra

A few blogs have appeared attempting to discredit Pat Zalewski, and to a lesser extent my own involvement with Whare Ra.   You might find long winded blogs out there penned by people who have never even visited New Zealand, let alone talked to Whare Ra people. They all insist that Pat, Christine, or Tony, or myself had nothing to do with Whare Ra and attempt to prove it.One of the weird things I have noticed about the Internet is that you find a lot of Black is white comments, which deny things which I actually saw and took part in.  When it comes down to it, these comments are usually written by those who do not have any real

Sickos are not just in the GD… it seems the AA and Thelema has its share

I dont normally cross post,  but this story got me cross.....It seems that the GD is not the only one to have leaders who are sicko... this guy apparently was cross that Don Kraig getting sick was interfering with his fundraising efforts.  I dunno who he is but really he needs to be told that is unacceptable behavior from a human,

The MOAA Oath In the Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea, you must take an Oath before the 42 Assessors and the God Orcus who rules the underworld.  Most of the clauses of this oath are typical for magical orders, such as secrecy, fellowship, and an agreement to study etc.  But there is one clause which in this period of history might be considered “liberal, radical and dangerous.” “I will strive to see all humans, of whatever country, race, sex, sexual orientation, or religion as a unique expression of the One Thing and work to overcome hate and discrimination wherever I find it.” One of our inspirations is Ancient Rome and Alexandria which did not care what race or religion you were, simply
