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.
We now pass from the grade of Neophyte to that of Zelator, the second Initiated degree. The grade of Zelator is symbolised by Yesod on the Hermetic Tree of Life, so sometimes the 2=9 grade or Second Degree is called the grade of Air. This seems an appropriate time to discuss Enochian Magick and, in particular, the magical operation called the Skrying of the Thirty Aethyrs or Aires. Later on, we will present a reading of the Oracle of Babalon and the Second Call of Spirit, in the Angelic language.
