A Thelemic Rosary

A Work In Progress
Frater Phoenix, III° O.T.O.

Seal of the Rosary – Opening

Talisman/Terminal: Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth. Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.

Large Bead 1: Unity uttermost showed! I adore the might of Thy breath, Supreme and terrible God, Who makest the gods and death To tremble before Thee: – I, I adore thee!

Small Bead 1: This is the creation of the world, that the pain of division is as nothing, and the joy of dissolution all.
Small Bead 2: I am Life, and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of Death.
Small Bead 3: To Me do ye reverence! To me come ye through the tribulation of ordeal, which is bliss.

Large Bead 2: Then in the might of the Lion did I formulate unto myself that holy and formless fire, קָדַשׁ, which darteth and flasheth through the depths of the Universe.

Pendant: The great goddess that bendeth over the Universe is my mistress; I am the winged globe at her heart.

[The Mysteries of the Rosary]

Large Bead 1: Attraction

Meditation: Behold! I am Yesterday, To-Day, and the Brother of To-Morrow! I am born again and again. Mine is the Unseen Force, whereof the Gods are sprung! Which is as Life unto the Dwellers in the Watch-Towers of the Universe. I am the Charioteer of the East, Lord of the Past and of the Future. I see by mine own inward light: Lord of Resurrection; Who cometh forth from the Dusk, and my birth is from the House of Death.

First Hendecade:

Small Bead 1: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Small Beads 2-4: Our loves have brought to birth the Father and Creator of all things.
Small Beads 5-7: There is a splendour in my name hidden and glorious, as the sun of midnight is ever the son.
Small Beads 8-10: O my God! One is Thy Beginning! One is Thy Spirit, and Thy Permutation One!
Small Bead 11: Love is the law, love under will.

Large Bead 2: Birth

Meditation: I am like a maiden bathing in a clear pool of fresh water. But thou art the Water beyond the waters. Yea, also verily Thou art the cool still water of the wizard fount. I have bathed in Thee, and lost me in Thy stillness. That which came fire from Thee cometh water from me; let therefore Thy Spirit lay hold on me, so that my right hand loose the lightning. If I say Come up upon the mountains! the celestial waters flow at my word. Verily and Amen! I passed through the deep sea, and by the rivers of running water that abound therein, and I came unto the Land of No Desire.

Second Hendecade:

Small Bead 1: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Small Beads 2-4: Our loves have brought to birth the Father and Creator of all things.
Small Beads 5-7: There is a splendour in my name hidden and glorious, as the sun of midnight is ever the son.
Small Beads 8-10: O my God! One is Thy Beginning! One is Thy Spirit, and Thy Permutation One!
Small Bead 11: Love is the law, love under will.

Large Bead 3: Life

Meditation: Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heart & my tongue! He hath established the elements; the aether, the air, the water, the earth, and the fire. First, there are many and diverse conditions of life upon this earth. Who can escape from sickness and from old age and from death? Yea, though the flower wave bright in the sunshine, the root is deep in the darkness of earth.

Third Hendecade:

Small Bead 1: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Small Beads 2-4: Our loves have brought to birth the Father and Creator of all things.
Small Beads 5-7: There is a splendour in my name hidden and glorious, as the sun of midnight is ever the son.
Small Beads 8-10: O my God! One is Thy Beginning! One is Thy Spirit, and Thy Permutation One!
Small Bead 11: Love is the law, love under will.

Large Bead 4: Death

Meditation: O Lord, be my helper, and bring me to the bliss of the Beloved! I shall not rest until I have dissolved it all. Thy name is Death, it may be, or Shame, or Love. So thou bringest me tidings of the Beloved One, I shall not ask thy name. Ah! messenger of the beloved One, let Thy shadow be over me!

Fourth Hendecade:

Small Bead 1: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Small Beads 2-4: Our loves have brought to birth the Father and Creator of all things.
Small Beads 5-7: There is a splendour in my name hidden and glorious, as the sun of midnight is ever the son.
Small Beads 8-10: O my God! One is Thy Beginning! One is Thy Spirit, and Thy Permutation One!
Small Bead 11: Love is the law, love under will.

Large Bead 5: Annihilation

Meditation: My own soul bites into itself, like a scorpion ringed with fire. I came to the house of the Beloved, and the wine was like fire that flieth with green wings through the world of waters. He hath established the Trinity of Triads in all things, forcing fire into fire, and ordering all things in the Stable Abode of the Kings of Ægypt. At the touch of the Fire Qadosh the earth melted into a liquor clear as water. At the touch of the Fire Qadosh the water smoked into a lucid air. At the touch of the Fire Qadosh the air ignited, and became Fire. At the touch of the Fire Qadosh, O Lord, the Fire dissipated into Space.
