128: A Rite of Alchemical Fusion of the Demiurgic Priest and Warrior (Pentacles of East and West)
Alchemical Fusion of Opposites: the Demiurgic Priest and Hunter at their Epiphanies (Pentacles of East and West)
An Alchemical Invocation, fusing or reconciling the Demiurgic Opposites of Green Priest and Red Hunter (or Tarot “Emperor” or “King”). An imbalance in the Priest’s Compassion results in Envy and Martyrdom; an imbalance in the Hunter’s Zeal results in Anger and Rage. Properly balanced and fused, they form the Monadic Divine Holy Son, MALACHIZADOCH or Melchizadek.
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 Southern Pillar of the Western Gate, at the close of Gift-Month at Mid-Fall Equinox: Hunter’s Epiphany (ca. September 21-23), and the East Pentacle’s Northern Pillar of the Eastern Gate, at the close of Beast-Month at Mid-Spring Equinox: Priest’s Epiphany (ca. March 19-21).
The Rite is best used during the corresponding hours of 5:50 P.M. to 6:00 P.M., and 5:50 A.M. to 6:00 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 Gift-Month at the Hunter’s Epiphany (ca. September 21-23), the celebrants should form a pentacle with the Decanus (Dean) at the Western Point, 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 Beast-Month at the Priest’s Epiphany (ca. March 19-21), the celebrants should form a pentacle with the Decanus (Dean) at the Eastern Point, 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:

A fortnight later, you marry the Turquoise Fowler in Late-Fall, at the Priest your father’s descent as the Dove!
Thus is his envy healed by your zeal!
You triumph in Beast-Month at Early-Spring as Owain, the Red Ram, to attain the World Dragon when your son, the Green Priest, is reborn!

EOM-UAN! UAN-EOM! Priest or King; King or Priest: 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 as the Christ we be anointed Priest-King forever after the order of MALACHIZADOCH, Son of Man, eternal and immortal! So may it be.
