08 24 – 09 07 Early-Fall: First Fortnight (ca. August 24 – September 7)

GIFT-MONTH, or EARLY-FALL-MONTH

(Green Realm of Buddhic Archangel ANAEL or ANACHIEL)

Here we enter Primordial LIBRA, the Realm of Cardinal Air, or Spiritual Naming; the Green Realm of the Buddhic Archangel ANAEL or ANACHIEL, administered by the Deans of St. Anachiel’s Cathedral: the Most Eminent White Throne Venerable Thronal Angel (3:0), and the Most Eminent Black Throne Venerable Elemental Sylph (3:13). It is also the Realm of our Atmic Demiurge the Priest, the Divine Heart and Right Hand of the God, represented by the Cardinal Ushers: the Cardinal Archbishop Duke of the Green Rod (0:3,) and the Cardinal Archbishopess Duchess of the Green Ring (13:3) .

Here is the Blessing of the Priest: TRIUNITAS CORPORIS (/_\) ET ANIMI (/_\) ET SPIRITU SANCTI (/_\); ie., the Triunity of Body (Elemental, Physical, Subtle), of Soul (Manasic, Egoic, and Buddhic), and of Spirit (Atmic, Monadic, and Logoic). This is the Month of the Feast of the Tabernacles, Scenai; stages or theatres, for the Green Priest administers ritual Drama, the Mystery Plays. The Priest is Dhawidruidh, Savitri, Nuadha, Mahamadha, Adhiun, the Bright Son.

This month rules the Sacrament of the Third Naming, when the fifty-six-year-old Candidate is given the Spirit-Name. Because this is a Month of Wind or Air, we initiate and celebrate it with horn-blowing, chanting, etc.: As the Feast of Trumpet-blowing, it has been remembered as Rosh-Hashanah.
Book of Lights, Book Three: Chapter Nought/Thirteen:

O: Thou, Archangel, art the MERCY-SEAT Gift of the World, Thronal Firmness of Our Demiurge the Priest, His Holiness the Pontifex, linking Our Inner Coven of Twelve Demiurges, with Thine Outer Coven of Twelve Angelic Graces, the realm of the Sylphs and Lares; 1: Thy Roundel is Green and Thy Body is White/Black: Pure Radiance; 2: Thy name is Anael; is Anachiel; 3: Thy donation is Compassionate Giving, the Dharmic Balance of the Middle Way; 4: Thou protectest the Radiant Central Tower of the Green Isle, West Province of the Southwest Quarter; 5: Thou growest the subtle flower in the center of Our Venerable High-Priest Twin; 6: Thou shapest the holy ARK of the Covenant; 7: Thou cuttest the triple path of descent; 8: Thou tendest the subtle fruit in the center of Our Earthly High-Priest Twin; 9: Thou reapest Fore-Sext, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., and Early-Fall, ca.

FALL-START or NEW-FALL (AUGUST 24-26)

AUGUST 24-26; 4:00 – 4:10 p.m. (C.C.) Maturation of Red-Orange Diviner; (I.C.) Rebirth of Green-Blue Fowler

The Feast of the Causal Angel of the Gift of the Diviner (Rosy Mantle): Red-Orange Diviner enters the Realm of Archangel ANACHIEL. She now attains Her 17th Annular Degree, and is to become Regular (Fixed) Tower Superior Abbess, of the Abbess’ 9th (Elohim or Angelic) subcaste.

They offer the Treasure of the Priest (Thadha Brooch) to the Deans of St. Anachiel’s as toll, and receive the Mantic Gift (Rosy Mantle) as token of admission.

Diviners’ Offering:

AThADHARAMA DHARUI; MANTALh MARA-ThALhOMhEW RADHOE! (I give the Brooch; the Cloak Broad-Perfection offerest thou!)

Deans’ Response (Book of Lights III:10):

0: This Throne is the Child of Our Buddhic Archangel ANACHIEL, Gift of the World, and of Our Inner Spiritual Diviner. 1: His roundel is Green, and His body is Red-Orange; 2: His name is Anael Hieromantiu; is Radhalatriu; is Dharamartha; 3: He bestows Compassionate Giving through Perfect Acceptance; 4: He protects Dhar Torh, the Red-Orange Tower of the Green Isle; 5: He grows the subtle flower of the heart and left hand of the Venerable Cleric for Clergy, the Cardinal Deacon; 6: He fashions Mantalh, the CLOAK of Prophecy; 7: He shapes the Feathered Cape; 8: He tends the subtle fruit of the navel and liver of the Earthly Cleric for Armigers, the Bishop; 9: In the Converse Calendar, He tends from 4:00 to 4:10 p.m., and rules the first duodecimal of Early-Fall, ca.

(The House the Cailleach Built, vv. 1-15.) We now celebrate the rebirth of the Fowler or Countess-Admiral.

Now we light the first of the five invisible candles of the Triple Crown of Dharma of the Green Priest.

August 24 has been preserved in Christianity as the Day of St. Bartholomew (perhaps a misreading of MARA-ThALhoMhEW, “Embracing Perfection”) and the Rosy Mantle is glossed as Bartholomew’s own skin: He was supposedly flayed alive. Note that this mantle is supposed to dry the rainy tears of St. Swithin (ShUEChUNh, the Forester, who exchanged the Tree of Bearhaolm or Bartholomew for the Constellation of Pisces in the Creator’s Realm, some 40 days ago; if St. Swithin’s Day was rainy, it was supposed to rain continuously for the next 40 days. Note that the 40 days would actually take us to the end of this Mantle-Feast, the 26th):

All the tears St. Swithin can cry

St. Bartholomew’s mantle can wipe dry.

or:

All the tears ShUAIChUNh doth cry

MARA-ThOLhOMhEW Mantle doth wipe dry.

This Feast may also be called Mantlemas (Bartlemas):

If Mantlemas Day be fine and clear,

You may hope for a prosperous Autumn this year.

This is because the Mantle-Feast inaugurates the Season of Autumn; hence St. “Bartholomew” or MARThOLhOMhEW traditionally brings in the cooler weather:

MAR(A)-ThOLhOMhEW

Brings the cold dew.

Note, too, that the Forester is El-Aish, Elisha, who received the Mantle of Prophecy from El-Aij or Elijah, the Planter (albeit at the Baptism of El-Aij, at the “Jordan River” of New Candlemas). As this Feast inaugurates an Air-month, we celebrate it with the blowing of trumpets (Rosh-Hashanah).


AUGUST 26-28; 4:10 – 4:20 p.m. (C.C.) Orange Mage; (I.C.) Blue Planter

The Feast of the Causal Angel of the Gift of the Mage (Mirror-Mask of Truth): Orange Mage enters the Realm of Archangel ANACHIEL. He has attained His 21st Annular Degree, and is to become Magus, of the Mages’ 8th (Seer) subcaste. His Quest is to rhyme the Priest’s Names for Anachiel; in return He will receive the Mirror-Mask. Enacted by the Ipsissimus (Prince) Usher of the Mirror-Mask and by the Ipsissima (Princess) Usher of the Orange Rod, who lead the new Magi into the Cathedral Temple of St. Anachiel. They offer the Names of the Priest (Dhawidruid, Nuadha, etc.) to the Deans of St. Anachiel’s as toll, and receive the Mage’s Gift (Mirror Mask) as token of admission. It seems particularly appropriate that the Mages’ Seer subcaste be commemorated with the Mirror-Mask, symbolizing vision.

Mages’ Offering:

MAIIA NUADHA DHARUI; DHARAMA-LAILIA EODHME RADHOE! (I give the Name of Nuadha; the Mirror-Mask offerest thou!)

She has attained Her 23rd Annular Degree, and is working on Her Master’s Candidacy, of the Scholars’ 7th (Magic) subcaste. Her Quest is to offer the Planet Venus to the Temple of Anachiel, and receive the Lamp in return. Enacted by the Principal (Queen) Prelate of the Amber Cup and by the Principal (King) Prelate of the Lamp, who lead the Master’s Candidates into the Cathedral Temple of St. Anachiel. They offer the Planetary Wisdom-Body of the Priest (Venus) to the Deans of St. Anachiel’s as toll, and receive the Sage’s Gift (Lamp) as token of admission.

They offer the Constellation of the Priest (Libra) to the Deans of St. Anachiel’s as toll, and receive the Creator’s Gift (Uraeus Crown) as token of admission.

September 1 is traditionally the Day of St. Giles, patron of cripples (and presumably of smiths, as Giles = Gil or Gillwg, the crippled Smith); this is the day that the Violet Smith covertly enters Anachiel’s realm. However, St. Giles’ Day should be celebrated overtly around Sept. 15.

The Feast of the Causal Angel of the Gifts of the Priest (the Balances and the Triple Staff): Green Priest enters the Realm of Archangel ANACHIEL. He now attains His 17th Annular Degree, and is to become Cardinal Arch-Bishop, of the Priests’ 9th (Elohim or Angelic) subcaste.

Enacted by the Cardinal Arch-Bishop (Duke) Usher of the Green Rod and by the Cardinal Arch-Bishopess (Duchess) Usher of the Triple Brooch, who lead the New Cardinal Arch-Bishops into the Cathedral Temple of St. Anachiel. They offer the Scales to the Deans of St. Anachiel’s as toll, and receive the Triple Rod of the World Throne in return, as token of admission.

We light the first of the seven visible candles of the Triple Crown of Dharma of the Green Priest. ( the remaining candles are lit consecutively at the Following Feasts, culminating in the First Feast of Mid-Fall, a fortnight hence). The excessive altruism of the Green Priest nourishes a compensatory self-interest and zeal: the rebirth of the Emperor or Hunter or Earl-Marshall (Aryu or Adon or Adam, the Red Man), who is born of, or emerges from, Violet-Red Forester (Shawwa, Forestress of the Tree of Life; Eve). This is the true beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles. Now, the Priest (right hand of the Divine Whole, YHWH) triumphs, amidst the rebirth of his anatagonist, the Red King of zeal:

The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies my footstool. The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength [or justice] out of Zion; rule thou in the
midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power [or mercy], in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning [or, Unto the womb of the evening]: thou has the dew of thy youth. The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizadek. The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath [zeal or justice]. He shall judge among the heathen… (Ps. 110)

As the Feast of Balances, it has been remembered as Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, when the High Priest of the Temple enters the Holy of Holies, the Ark or Mercy-Seat of the Covenant. Because this is also the Day of Rebirth of the Hunter, a goat was sacrificed, its blood sprinkled in offering to YHWH; and the scapegoat was driven into the wilderness as offering to Azaziel, the World-Dragon.
