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 east with both hands to the left: Vibrate A (Aaah)
- 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)
- Looking into the air, hand on heart: Vibrate Y (Ouuu)
- 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 blessed Saturn, servant of the Agathos Daimon, U who rules over this day, U in your sign of rulership, bring your light to me!
Saturn, Scythe, prince of prudence, reaper of ruins, tither of time, scion of secrets, crafter of karma, fill me, your humble vessel, with your endurance, perseverance, forbearance. Let me feel the fleeting flicker of fragile flame called life so I may master my mortality! Tell me to tire, till, and toil until termination so they tell tavern tales of my time tremendously treasured. A period of time, a precious pearl. Privilege me to process the pure power of passionate presence, provided I prove proficient in proverbs of prudence. Amen.
Light the candle
Blessed Saturn, watch over me, bless me, protect me, and see to the success of this ritual.
O blessed Helios, servant of the Agathos Daimon, U who rules over this moment, U in your sign of exaltation, bring your light to me!
Hear me, O blessed one,
eternal eye that sees all,
Titan radiant as gold,
Hyperion, celestial light,
sweet sight to living creatures.
On the right you beget dawn,
on the left you beget night,
you temper the seasons
as you ride your dancing horses,
you rush, you rush very swiftly,
O fiery and bright-faced charioteer,
you press on your course
in endless whirl.
Harsh to the impious,
you teach good to the pious
as you hold the golden lyre,
the harmony of cosmic motion,
as you command noble deeds,
as you nurture the seasons.
Piping lord of the world,
fiery circle of motion,
life-giving, fruit-bearing, Paian,
eternal and pure father of time,
O immortal Lord,
you are the clear, you are the brilliant,
you are the all-encompassing cosmic eye,
both when you set and when you shine
your lovely and radiant light.
A paragon of justice,
O water-loving lord of the cosmos,
you guard pledges and ever the highest,
you do help all.
Eye of justice and light of life,
your screaming whip
drives the four-horse chariot on.
Hear my words and show
life’s sweetness to the initiates.
Holy Helios, exalting in Aries, bless your daughter, X. She, born as U moved through Aries, who partakes of your exaltation and quality. U know to whom I refer, for I love her. Grant her health, wealth, strong spirit, and clear vision. Grant her your splendor, radiance, and clarity.
Light the candle
O blessed Zeus, servant of the Agathos Daimon, U in your sign of rulership, bring your light to me!
O Zeus much-honored, Zeus 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 Zeus; 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.
Bountiful Zeus, exalting in Sagittarius, bless your daughter, X. She, born as U moved through Sagittarius through her first house, who partakes of your exaltation and quality. U know to whom I refer, for I love her. Grant her health, wealth, opportunity, and new friends. Grant her your temperance, wisdom, and buoyancy.
Light the candle
O blessed Selene, servant of the Agathos Daimon, U in the ascendant, ruled by the Sun in his exaltation, bring your light to me!
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.
Serene Selene, bless your daughter, X. She, who holds your name sacred in her heart, born as U moved through her 10th house. U know to whom I refer, for I love her. See that everything I’ve asked on her behalf manifest in this, our earthly realm, as U have the power to do. Grant her your serenity.
Light the candle
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 Selene
I give thanks to U Zeus
I give thanks to U Helios
I give thanks to U Saturn
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!
