Occult Books: The Phoenix and other Stellar Rites of Initiation

By Oliver St. John

Now Available (from 14th April 2017)

The Phoenix and other Stellar Rites of InitiationThis book redefines the Magick of Light for the New Aeon. Liber CMXXX is the rite of admission to the first degree in the Golden Dawn of a Thelemic magical Order. It is the key to forging the correct inner plane contacts. The first degree is that of Neophyte, corresponding Qabalistically to Malkuth. The most important Initiations are those that take place on the central or middle pillar of the Hermetic Tree of Life. We therefore include with this book the admission to the grade of Zelator, The Ceremony for making the Khu perfect or Liber XXV, and Liber Zain, a modern version of the Bornless Ritual to attain the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. The three ceremonies of Initiation each come with new or extended commentaries. The “flashing colours” are particular to the Magick of Light that is, in turn, the central operational factor in theurgical rites. The diagrams and illustrations, reproduced in colour, are integral to this book.
