06 22 – 07 06 Late-Summer: First Fortnight ( ca. June 22 – July 6 )

The Solar Calendar (Taurus-based Equinox)

SUN-MONTH or STAR-MONTH

(Yellow Realm of Buddhic Archangel MICHEAL)

Here we enter Primordial Leo, the Realm of Fixed Fire, or Bodily Saining (Fire-Hallows); the Yellow Realm of the Archangel MICHAEL or MICHIEL or MICHEAL, administered by the Deans of St. Micheal’s College: His Holiness the White Constellation Solar Seraph (1:0), and Her Holiness the Black Constellation Solar Elemental Monad (1:13). It is also the Realm of our Atmic Demiurge the Spiritual Creator, the Divine Right Eye of the God, represented by the Fixed Kings of Arms: the Principal King of Arms of the Uraeus Crown (0:1), and the Principal Queen of Arms of the Athamei (13:1). The Creator is MABON, BAELI, BAAL, BELIN, BALDUR; IBRAEHIM, BRAHM, ABRAHAM, or BRAEM-BAELIM; the Bright Brother or Bright Grandfather.

Because this is a Month of Fire, it is initiated and celebrated with Bael-Fires, etc. This month rules the Sacrament of the Second Confirmation or Saining, when the forty-two-year-old Candidate is given the fire-walk.


Book of Lights, Book One: Chapter Nought/Thirteen:

0: Thou, Archangel, art the Star-Pattern of the World, Seraphic Beauty of Our Demiurge the Creator Illuminatus, linking Our Inner Coven of Twelve Demiurges, with Thine Outer Coven of Twelve Angelic Constellations; 1: Thy Roundel is Yellow and Thy Body is White/Black: Pure Radiance; 2: Thy name is Michael; is Micheal; 3: Thy donation is Enlightened Vision; knowledge of the regions of consciousness; 4: Thou protectest the Radiant Central Tower of the Yellow Isle, South Province of the Southwest Quarter; 5: Thou growest the subtle flower in the center of Our Solar Creator-Twin; 6: Thou forgest the THIRTEEN ORBS; 7: Thou carvest the sunwise path of the Vector Equilibrium Matrix; 8: Thou overseest After-Prime, the first two hours after Noon; and Late Summer, the month after Midsummer Solstice; 10: Thou treasurest the SUN of Tarot; 11: Thou ingest the seventh octave; 12: Thy sphere, the Sun, reflects the twelve leaps of Self-Awareness, and also the Age of Leo, ca. 10960 – 8800 B.C.E.


MID-SUMMER or FULL-SUMMER Week (JUNE 20-26) (Continued from bottom of final page)

(Intercalary Period of 10 hours, 30 minutes; ca. June 21-22: Mid-Summer Solstice)

SUMMER SOLSTICE: EXALTATION (AND SACRIFICE) OF THE WHITE MONAD IAHU, RULER OF ANGELS, REPRESENTED BY THE WHITE KING METATRON (White: White), EXEMPLAR OF TRANSCENDENCE.

* * * Noon * * *

This is the Moment of (the Male Christ) Malachizadoch or Melchizadek’s Assumption of the Logoic Vesture, as Melchizadek (White: Black) begins His journey of Descent or Incarnation from Metatron (White: White) toward Sandalphon (Black: Black).

* * *

Today we take special care to see and celebrate the Sun at Noon (“Prime”): Summer Solstice would be Noon, if the year were a single day. As the Solstice intiates the month of Bodily Saining, or Fire-Hallowing, today we practice purification by passing our children, our possessions, and ourselves through the Midsummer fires lit of sacrificial Oak (now is the best time to practice fire-walking). These fires are to burn on hilltops throughout the night, to usher in the Creator (Baelibream or Baermaebi or Barnaby, whose feast day is June 22, Old Style):

Barnaby bright, Barnaby bright,

Light all day and Light all night.

At Summer Solstice, we sacrifice (raise to Heaven) the ruling symbols of the waxing year, now gone: of stones, the White Diamond; of trees, the Tree of Life, or the Oak; of birds, the White Phoenix, or Robin. We now enter the waning half of the year, symbolized by the eventual triumph of the Black Diamond or Coal; the Tree of Knowledge, or the Holly and Misteltoe; and the Black Phoenix or Wren. On the way to gather the sacrificial oak, we sing the Oak Tree Carol:

Oh the Holly and the Oak Tree,

When they are both full grown,

Of all the Trees that are in the wood,

The Oak Tree bears the crown.

After the sacrifice, the Carol is sung with the last line: “The Holly bears the crown.” Also sung:

All the birds of the air

Fell to sighing and sobbing,

When they heard the bell toll

For poor Cock Robin.

Also:

K’eak be nimble, K’eak be quick,

K’eak jump over the candlestick.

This is the time for erecting a Midsummer Pole, representing the Transcendental Lance of IAHU-Metatron (remembered in Fairy-Tales as Jack’s or K’eak’s Beanstalk; K’eak or Cailleach is the Trickster-Mason, who leaps over the Solstice (Lance) and is reborn now), and for jumping over the Broom at Midsummer marriages. Metatron is Ruler of the Coven of (Male) Angels or (Male) Deans of the Colleges. Today, everyone may wear white in honor of Metatron.


JUNE 22-24; Noon – 12:10 p.m. (C.C.) Maturation of Orange-Yellow Sage; (I.C.) Rebirth of Blue-Violet Mason

The Feast of the Causal Angel of the Constellation Cancer: The Spiritual Scholar (the Lunar Phaerie-Sage) enters the Realm of Archangel MICHEAL. She now attains Her 17th Annular Degree, and is to be made Senior Sophister.

Enacted by the (Emerita) Principal (Queen) Prelate of the Great Cup, and Principal (King) Prelate of the Lamp, leading the Senior Sophisters into St. Micheal’s Constellation College of Arms. They offer the Deans of St. Micheal’s a toll of the Creator’s Planetary Body, and receive the Sage’s Constellation as token of admission.

PAERHIEL-AEPUOL BIRI; BHILAEMBIPAELh IRIPH OURBIHIPPI RIBHAE! (The Body of the Sun I Bring; Amber-colored 12-pointed Starry Unicorn Createst Thou!)

 

Deans’ response (Book of Lights I:12):

We light the first of the five invisible candles in the Stellar Crown of the Yellow Creator. This is the time for celebrating the Planetary Body of the Atmic Creator (the Sun).

Rebirth of the Mason: The Lunar Sage (“wife” of Braem-baelim, the Solar Creator) gives birth to Blue-Violet Mason (the reincarnation of her own mother), completing Summer Solstice and initiating the waning half of the year. Blue-Violet Mason begins to feed on the excess radiant wisdom of the Lunar Sage, transmuting it into matter, and inaugurating the fall toward Winter

Braembaelim’s wife and his wife’s mother,

Went over Midsummer Bridge together,

The Bridge broke down, and they tumbled in,

Welcome home! quoth Braembaelim. [or: “And on top of them both fell Braembaelim,” in the next festival!]

This verse may underlie the apocryphal legend and carol of Jesus’ building a bridge of the beams of the sun, “that they might play at Ball [Bael],” and the rich men’s children falling through it and drowning.


JUNE 24-26; 12:10 – 12:20 p.m. (C.C.) Yellow Creator Attains Star-Gates, (I.C.) Rebirth of Violet Smith

The Feast of the Causal Angel of the Constellation Leo: Yellow Creator enters His own Realm (of Archangel MICHEAL). The Creator now attains His 17th Annular Degree, and is to be Senior Sophister. His Quest is to attain the Constellation of Leo. Enacted by the (Emeritus) Principal King of Arms of the Great Crown, and the Principal Queen of Arms of the Athamei, who lead the Senior Sophisters into St. Micheal’s Constellation College of Arms. They offer the Golden Orb to the Deans of St. Micheal’s as toll, and they receive the Constellation of Leo as token of admission.

Creators’ Offering:

OURIBUO BIRI; BHILAEMBAELB IRIB OURBILAO RIBHAE! (The Golden Orb I offer; the Flame-Yellow Seed-Mind Starry Lion createst thou!)

Deans’ Response (Book of Lights I:1):

0: This Seraph is the Child of Our Buddhic Archangel MICHEAL, Star-Pattern of the World, and of Our Inner Spiritual Creator or Imaginer. 1: His roundel is Yellow, and His body is Yellow; 2: His name is Mi’hael Hieromiel; is Baelimiel; is Ourbi’im; 3: He donates Enlightened Vision through Creativity; 4: He protects the Yellow Tower of the Yellow Isle; 5: He grows the subtle flower in the head and right eye of the Solar Seer for Sagery, the Doctor; 6: He forges the YELLOW ORB of LEO; 7: He carves the Conjunction, the single point of light; 8: He tends the subtle fruit in the navel and spleen of the Earthly Seer for Warriors; the Sophister; 9: In the Converse Calendar, He oversees from 12:10 to 12:20 p.m., and the second duodecimal of Late Summer, the end of Midsummer Solstice, ca.

We light the first of the seven visible candles in the Stellar Crown of Yellow Creator; the rest are lit consecutively on the following Feast-days, culminating at the second Feast in Summer-Wane, a fortnight hence. This is the time for celebrating the Constellation of the Atmic Creator (the Sun in Sirius).

The Yellow Creator now fathers Violet Smith, who intakes as food the Creator’s emanations of light/fire. During this time, the Smith begins to eat the excessive heat of the Sun, so that even in its greatest strength, Summer begins to wane. At this time, the infant Smith is bathed in fire to temper His immortality, but as He is held by the buttock and heel, these are His vulnerable points. As the Smith is born six months before the Creator, he was forced into the mold of John the Baptist, born six months before Jesus; hence June 24th is St. “John’s” Day. In the Primordial Calendar, it is St. Giles’ Day.

(Oh the Holly and the Oak Tree,

When they are both full grown,

Of all the trees that are in the wood,

The Holly bears the crown.)

Oh the shining of the Sun,

And the Lion’s hearty roar,

And the lighting of the Stellar Crown,

Our Smith is born once more.

A divination rhyme, used to decide upon one of two possible course of action: SLightly moisten two scraps of paper, place them on the back of the hand, and pronounce the following invocation before and after breathing on them to see which will fly first:

There were two blackbirds sat on a hill,

The one named K’eak, the other named Gill.

Fly away K’eak! Fly away Gill!

Come again K’eak! Come again Gill!

K’eak is Cailleach, the Crone or Blue-Violet Mason; Gill is Gil-Luwgh, the Violet Smith, the two darkest Atmic Demiurges, Who are now reborn.
