Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram Opening
Archangels, watch over me, bless me, protect me, and see to the success of this ritual.
Hekas hekas estes bebeloi!
Away, away be ye all negative spirits that would harm the sanctity of this rite. I call upon all helpful spirits, Deities, and ancestors: Watch over my working, opening the household so that the power of the Agathos Daimon can come forward and the ancient and shining ones be present. Protect all members of the household until the ritual is concluded.
Come to me, U from the four winds, ruler of all, who breathed the spirit of life into all persons, whose is the hidden and unspeakable name. At whose name even the daimons, when hearing, are terrified. Of whom heaven is head, ether body, earth feet, and the environment water: the Agathos Daimon. U are the ocean, begetter of good things and feeder of the civilized world. Yours is the eternal processional way. Your seven-lettered name is established for the harmony of the seven sounds of the planets which utter their voices according to the twenty-nine forms of the moon.
SAR APHARA APHARA Eeee ABRAARM ARAPHA ARBAACH PERTA-Aaww-MaaayCH AKMaaayCH Eeee-Aaah-Aaww Oooh-Ouuu-Eeeh Eeeh-Eeee-Oooh-Ouuu Eeee-Aaah-Aaww
Your name and your spirit rest upon the good. Come into my mind and my understanding for all the time of my life and accomplish for me all the desires of my soul. For U are I, and I, U. Whatever I say must happen, for I have your name in my heart and no flesh will overpower me; no spirit will stand against me—neither daimon, nor visitation, nor any evil being, because of your name, which I have in my soul and invoke.

- Facing north, with right fist out: Vibrate E (Eeeh)
- Facing west extending both hands forward: Vibrate Ē (Aaay)
- Facing south hands on stomach: Vibrate I (Eeee)
- To the earth, hands touching toes: Vibrate O (Oooh)

- To the sky, both hands on head: Vibrate Ō (Aaww)
I call on U, eternal and unbegotten, who are one, who alone hold together the whole creation of all things, whom none understand, whom the gods worship, whose name not even the gods can utter. Accomplish for me this petition.
O swift Mercury, servant of the Agathos Daimon, ruler of this moment, bring your light to me.
Mercury, noble lord, you who are truthful, sensible, intelligent, you who, like the scribes, know and spread arithmetic, calculation, the science of the heavens and the earth! You are a noble lord, a master who supports and understands subtly the measured joy, riches, trade, profits, the profound significations. To whom is due all prophecies of prophets and their meanings, reasoning, theory, the apprehension of diverse sciences, of subtlety, intellect, philosophy, geometry, of the sciences of heaven and earth, divination, geomancy, poesy, of writing, eloquence, intellectual agility, of the depth in all the teachings and in all the actions, of aptitude, of the changing of one affair to another, of deception, to render oneself pure and sincere, of perseverance, of aiding men, and of comporting oneself well toward them, of forgiveness, of intelligence, of tranquillity, of averting wickedness, of good religion in the regard of God and of the law in regard to men, it is you who organize all these and of them are the significator.
You who are masked, by your subtlety, so that your nature is not able to be known nor your effects determined for certain. You are favourable with the favourable planets and unfavourable with the unfavourable planets, masculine with males and feminine with females, with the diurnal stars diurnal and nocturnal with the nocturnal, in accord with them in all their natures. You model yourself on them in all their forms, and you transform yourself into all their qualities.
O swift Mercury, aid Evan Stites-Clayton and me to speak and write clearly. Lend us your technical brilliance and swiftness. Grant us penetrating insight.
O bountiful Jupiter, servant of the Agathos Daimon, co-present with Saturn in the 9th house and high in the midheaven, bring your light to us.
O Jupiter much-honored, Jupiter supremely great, to U this holy rite I consecrate,
my prayers and expiations, king divine, for all things round thy head exalted shine.
The earth is yours, and mountains swelling high, the sea profound, and all within the sky.
Jovial king, descending from above, magnanimous, commanding, sceptered Jupiter; All-parent, principle and end of all, whose power almighty, shakes this earthly ball;
Even Nature trembles at your mighty nod, loud-sounding, armed with lightening, thundering God.
Source of abundance, purifying king, O various-formed from whom all natures spring;
Propitious hear my prayer, give blameless health, with peace divine, and necessary wealth.
O bountiful Jupiter, help Black Lotus Inc grow, flourish, and profit in every way favorable
O beautiful Venus, servant of the Agathos Daimon, exalted in Pisces, in the 10th house, bring your light to us.
Heav’nly, illustrious, laughter-loving queen, sea-born, night-loving, of an awful mien;
Crafty, from whom necessity first came, producing, nightly, all-connecting dame:
‘Tis thine the world with harmony to join, for all things spring from thee, O pow’r divine.
The triple Fates are rul’d by thy decree, and all productions yield alike to thee:
Whate’er the heav’ns, encircling all contain, earth fruit-producing, and the stormy main,
Thy sway confesses, and obeys thy nod, awful attendant of the brumal God:
Goddess of marriage, charming to the sight, mother of Loves, whom banquetings delight;
Source of persuasion, secret, fav’ring queen, illustrious born, apparent and unseen:
Spousal, lupercal, and to men inclin’d, prolific, most-desir’d, life-giving., kind:
Great sceptre-bearer of the Gods, ‘tis thine, mortals in necessary bands to join;
And ev’ry tribe of savage monsters dire in magic chains to bind, thro’ mad desire.
Come, Cyprus-born, and to my pray’r incline, whether exalted in the heav’ns you shine,
Or pleas’d in Syria’s temple to preside, or o’er th’ Egyptian plains thy car to guide,
Fashion’d of gold; and near its sacred flood, fertile and fam’d to fix thy blest abode;
Or if rejoicing in the azure shores, near where the sea with foaming billows roars,
The circling choirs of mortals, thy delight, or beauteous nymphs, with eyes cerulean bright,
Pleas’d by the dusty banks renown’d of old, to drive thy rapid, two-yok’d car of gold;
Or if in Cyprus with thy mother fair, where married females praise thee ev’ry year,
And beauteous virgins in the chorus join, Adonis pure to sing and thee divine;
Come, all-attractive to my pray’r inclin’d, for thee, I call, with holy, reverent mind.
O beautiful Venus, make Black Lotus Inc attractive to users, customers, investors, employees, and wealth
O Moon, servant of the Agathos Daimon, just past your greatest fullness, applying by trine to Mercury and Jupiter, in the 5th house, bring your light to us.
Hear, Goddess queen, diffusing silver light, bull-horn’d and wand’ring thro’ the gloom of Night.
With stars surrounded, and with circuit wide Night’s torch extending, thro’ the heav’ns you ride:
Female and Male with borrow’d rays you shine, and now full-orb’d, now tending to decline.
Mother of ages, fruit-producing Moon, whose amber orb makes Night’s reflected noon:
Lover of horses, splendid, queen of Night, all-seeing pow’r bedeck’d with starry light.
Lover of vigilance, the foe of strife, in peace rejoicing, and a prudent life:
Fair lamp of Night, its ornament and friend, who giv’st to Nature’s works their destin’d end.
Queen of the stars, all-wife Diana hail! Deck’d with a graceful robe and shining veil;
Come, blessed Goddess, prudent, starry, bright, come moony-lamp with chaste and splendid light,
Shine on these sacred rites with prosp’rous rays, and pleas’d accept thy suppliant’s mystic praise.
O Moon, Serene Selene, see that everything I’ve asked in petition manifest here, in our earthly realm, as U have the power to do.
O cold Saturn, servant of the Agathos Daimon, ruler of my birth, strong in your rulership of Aquarius, in the 9th house, bring your light to me.
Saturn, Scythe, prince of prudence, reaper of ruins, tither of time, scion of secrets, crafter of karma. O Saturn, I call to U. U teach diligence, discipline, and duty. U are cautious, conversative, and covert. U are solemn, sober, and sovereign. U are stable, structured, and studious.
O you Lord, whose name is mighty, whose appearance great, whose pneuma elevated, O you Lord Saturn, you, cold, dry, dark, doer of good and ill, upright in love, oath keeper, friend, unique, incomparable, rich in understanding, impenetrable, keeper of promises, tired, indolent, who keep to yourself in trouble and sorrow, you who remove yourself from friends and gaiety, old in years, rich in cunning, experienced, wily, deceitful, clever, understanding, you who bring increase and who destroy, whose disfavor brings misery and whose favor happiness.
O cold Saturn, see to the enduring power of my magick.
Please, Aion, ruler of hope, giver of wealth, O holy Agathos Daimon, bring to fulfillment all favors.
I have been attached to your holy form
I have been given power by your holy name
I have acquired your emanation of the goods
Lord, god of gods, master, daimon
For U are I, and I, U. Whatever I say must happen, for I have your name in my heart and no flesh will overpower me; no spirit will stand against me—neither daimon nor visitation nor any evil being, because of your name, which I have in my soul. For yours is the eternal processional way. Your seven-lettered name is established for the harmony of the seven sounds of the planets which utter their voices according to the twenty-nine forms of the moon.
I give thanks to U Saturn
I give thanks to U Selene
I give thanks to U Venus
I give thanks to U Jupiter
I give thanks to U Mercury
I give thanks to U Agathos Daimon
Go away, go away; into your own heavens, into your own palaces, into your own courses. Keep me healthy, unharmed, not plagued by evil spirits, free from calamity and without terror. Hear me during my lifetime.
Hekas hekas estes bebeloi!
Archangels, thank U, depart in peace.
