126: A Rite of Alchemical Fusion of the Demiurgic Creator and Smith (Pentacles of East and West)
Here is a Rite of Alchemical Invocation, fusing or reconciling the Demiurgic Opposites of Yellow Creator and Violet Smith. An imbalance in the Creator’s Imagination results in Pride and Solipsism; an imbalance in the Smith’s Responsibility results in Humiliation and Guilt. Properly balanced and fused, they form the Monadic Divine Holy Brother (or Grandfather), AEB-I-GAEL.
This invocation is best used within the East and West Pentacles (generated by the Rays and Subrays in Opposite relationship), particularly the West Pentacle’s South-Southwest point in Star-Month of Late-Summer: Smith’s Epiphany, True Lughnasadh (ca. July 9-11), and the East Pentacle’s North-Northeast point in Metal-Month of Late-Winter: Creator’s Epiphany, True Candlemas (ca. January 8-10).
The Rite is best used during the corresponding hours of 1:10 P.M. to 1:20 P.M., and 1:10 A.M. to 1:20 A.M.
“Armorum Rex” is the the Body-Temple’s King of Arms, Officer of Fire; “Praelata” is the Prelate, Officer of Water; “Ostiarius” is the Usher or Door-keeper, Officer of Air; and “Cancellaria” is the Chancellor, Officer of Earth. “Decanus” or “Decana” is the Dean, Officer of the Quintessence.
If used in Late-Summer at Smith’s Epiphany, true Lughnasadh (ca. July 9-11), the celebrants should form a pentacle with the Decanus (Dean) at the Western Point (Mid-Fall Equinox), the Cancellaria (Chancellor) in the North-Northwest (Taurus-Equinox Capricorn), the Praelata (Prelate) in the Northeast (T-E Pisces), the Ostiarius (Usher) in the Southeast (T-E Gemini), and the Armorum Rex (King of Arms) in the South-Southwest (T-E Leo).
I trace the Pentacle of the West from the North Pillar of the West Gate of Mid-Fall, to the Northeast Angle of Late Imbolc, to the South-Southwest Angle of Late Summer, to the North-Northwest Angle of Early Winter, to the Southeast Angle of Early May, to the South Pillar of the West Gate of Mid-Fall.
If used in Late-Winter at Creator’s Epiphany, true Candlemas (ca. January 8-10), the celebrants should form a pentacle with the Decanus (Dean) at the Eastern Point Mid-Spring Equinox), the the Praelata (Prelate) in the South-Southeast (Taurus-Equinox Cancer), the Cancellaria (Chancellor) in the Southwest (T-E Virgo), the Armorum Rex (King of Arms) in the Northwest (T-E Sagittarius), and the Ostiarius (Usher) in the North-northeast (T-E Aquarius).
I trace the Pentacle of the East from the South Pillar of the East Gate of Mid-Spring, to the Southwest Angle of Late Lammas, to the North-northeast Angle of Late Winter, to the South-southeast Angle of Early Summer, to the Northwest Angle of Early Hallows, to the North Pillar of the East Gate of Mid-Spring.
In either event, the Decanus then continues:

IEM-WUNG! WUNG-IEM! Creator or Smith; Smith or Creator: As the one triumphs, his shadow is reborn; as the one matures, the other dies. Heaven or Earth, Light or Dark, Above or Below: If we favor the one or the other, we too are bound to birth, death and rebirth. Therefore let us marry Heaven and Earth together, that we be anointed Creator-Smith forever after the order of AEB-I-GAEL, Holy Spirit, Brother of Man, eternal and immortal! So may it be.
