An evocation of ANODOIN, Mercury Senior
of the Great Southern Quadrangle of Fire
by Gregory Peters
[The ritual is to be performed during the course of the Tejas tattva; that is, 48 minutes after sunrise (or
in 2 hour increments after that time). The day should be Mercurii, or alternatively dies Solis. Luna should be full, or waxing.
Let the magician be robed as for his grade. At the center of the Temple is the black cubical altar, with Liber
AL vel Legis placed at the center, and the Triangle with the Cross surmounting it on top. Also on the altar are the Censor
and Incense, some coals, and the Cup of Purification, properly prepared. Incense should be Olibanum, or some similar fiery
odour. To the South of the Temple is the Enochian Watchtower of Fire hanging from a stand, with a red votive before it. At
the beginning, the tablet is covered in a red burse. The magus is armed with the Wand.]

* This Ritual is an Invocation of ANODOIN, the Mercury Senior of the Great Southern Quadrangle of Fire.
[ When ready, begin by purifying the Temple by water. Take up the Cup, and walk to the East:]
"For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every way perfect."
[Purify E, S, W, N, walking about the temple as you do so. Complete circle in East, then return directly West

And the Elohim said: "Let us make Adam in our image, after our Likeness, and let them have Dominion." In the
Name of ELOHIM, Mighty and Ruling, and in the Name of YOD HEH VAV HEH TZABAOTH, Spirits of Fire, adore your Creator!

Greater Invoking Hexagram Ritual of Mercury.]

In the Name of BABALON, I call Thee forth:
ANODOIN [repeat as necessary.]
[Once invoked, announce who you are. Then, in the name of BABALON whom They love and adore, make
your request of the Great Senior. State your request as clearly and as simply as possible.]

Immortal, eternal, ineffable, and uncreated, Father of All Things, borne upon the eternally rolling Chariot
of ever-revolving Worlds; Ruler of the Ethereal Vastnesses, where the Throne of Thy Power is upraised, from the summit of
which thine awesome eyes disclose all, and thy beautiful and holy ears hearken to all: Hear Thou thy children, whom Thou hast
loved since the birth of the Ages. For thy Majesty golden, vast, and eternal shineth, above the world and the Heaven of Stars.
Above them art Thou exalted, O Thou Scintillating Fire! There dost Thou blaze and maintain Thyself by thine inherent Splendour,
and from thine Essence flow forth inexhaustible Streams of Light which nourish thine Infinite Spirit. This Infinite Spirit
nourisheth all things, and maketh that Inexhaustible Treasure of itself to the Forms with which Thou most Holy Kings who art
about thy Throne, and who compose thy Court, O Universal Father! One and Alone! O Father of blesséd mortals and immortals.
Thou hast specially created Powers which are marvelously like unto thine eternal Thought and unto thy venerable
Essence. Thou hast established them above the Angels, who proclaim they Will unto the World. Lastly, Thou hast created us
third in rank within our Elemental Empire. There our continual practice is to praise Thee and to adore thy desires. There,
we burn unceasingly, aspiring to possess Thee.
O Father! O Mother, the most tender of mothers! O wonderful Archetype of Maternity and of Pure Love!
O Sun, the flower of all Sons! O Form of all forms, Soul, Spirit, Harmony, and Number of all Things! Amen!

peace between us; and be ye ready to come when called. *
