The Temple of Babalon is the Foundation Temple of Ordo Astri, an Independent Thelemic magical Order based in the UK. The Temple of Babalon website is here to provide audio podcasts for those with a serious interest in Thelema, Hermetic and magical philosophy, practical magick, mysticism, and the occult.
Previously we explored some of the work of a Neophyte in the magical grade of Earth, especially the formula of magical talismans. We went into detail concerning the Golden Dawn Z Formula or magick of light, and along the way gave some consideration to the work of Kenneth Grant and the magick of the Nightside. Here we continue with the grade of Neophyte, and will complete our discussion of magical talismans with a dramatisation of the ceremonial method of consecrating and charging a talisman with the powers of Mercury, under the auspices of Hermes-Thoth or Tahuti, the god of magick, writing and knowledge.
