Officer 1: Before the Dawn.

Deaconus: What is the place?

Officer 2: The top of the highest hill.

Deaconus: I see many stars! The light from the Water-bearer still shines strong in this temple!

Officers: Every man and every woman is a star.

Officer 1: Above, the gemméd azure is the naked splendour of Nuit;

Officer 2: She bends in ecstacy to kiss the secret ardours of Hadit.

Deaconus: The wingéd globe, the starry blue, are mine, O Ankh-af-na-Khonsu!

Invoking Active Spirit


Give the Sign of the Open Portal

Invoking Earth


Sign of Set Fighting

Draw Invoking Venus with symbol of Taurus, while vibrating: ABRAHADABRA

    Invoking Venus

DEACONUS: Holy Child, unity uttermost showed, bring thee Thy power.
Come thou forth from thine abode in the silence.
All-force! All-Fire! All-Light, All-Power!
Bring Thee Thy hand to lay on this Thy temple,
Thy house in the East.
Glory, glory, glory unto the Child sitting on the throne of Khabs.
Knowing the ways of the universe,
open the gate in the might of Love, and of War!
Be Thee Horus the Avenger, the warrior of the skies of light,
ever drowning, ever burning in the fire of death,
(that death that all Kings know),
and in Thy name do we invoke this fire,
and within this fire do we invoke Thee!
Thou Crowned and Conquering Child! Descend and abide!
In the love of Thy name do I call Thee!
To see this day begin, this, the Dawn of Kings!
and to fill the King of Earth with Thy power! Aum.

The Officers 1 and 2 then go to the altar and open the veil.

Horus: (staying behind the open veil)
Children of Earth! rejoice! rejoice exceedingly; for the Day of Kings is at hand! Glory awaits you all, for those that abide in the elevenfold word. I have risen as an hawk of gold; I, the first born child of Nuit, stand in the temple of the East. Thou who standeth on the Earth, whose feet are planted in the soil, thou lookest to me, for I am the Sun which feeds you. Stars thou art in the belly of Nu; yet the Goddess hath set her burden upon the Earth. Reach forth, then! The ways are open to you! I am the Lord of Life, and by the virtue of the Double Wand of Power, I give unto you my Word (throw the Word into the Deaconus) that thou mayest raise up the King of the Earth! (Horus sits)

Of the Choosing of the King

Deaconus: It is time to choose the King of the Earth. As it is through the Earth that the King shall rise, so shall the Earth reveal him.

Officer 1 directs all to stand.

Officer 2 goes to tomb wherein is the paten of cakes. Bring the paten to the Deaconus.

Deaconus takes the paten and faces Horus. Draw over the paten the symbol of Taurus.
Apokaluptein ton basilea hina basileis omen pantes. 1
He gives the paten to Officer 1.

Officer 1 takes the paten and offers everyone a cake. Instruct them quietly not to eat until the sign is given.

Deaconus: (This should be half-whispered as a mantra) Holy is the Earth. This is the choosing of the all, omne in parvo 2. This bread is the bread of the earth, not yet of god, of which we are all a part so that we, being earth, may choose itself to rise above itself in the name of the Hawk-headed Lord of Light and Life, Liberty and Love. This is a sacrement of ourselves unto ourselves, the temples of that holy Angel which abideth in the Sun, who is married to the Babe in the Abyss, so that the union of opposites may be the crowning of the Great Work. This is the choosing of the King of the Earth, that we may rise up, he our point; Hoc opus, Hic labor est 3. May we, through this bread, know ourselves; Apokaluptein ton basilea, Apokaluptein ton basilea, Apokaluptein ton basilea,...
repeat until all has a cake, then

This is the choosing of the King of Earth!

DEACONUS: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

The PEOPLE: Love is the law, love under will.

All officers and Horus: Let the King be revealed!

All should eat their cake.

Deaconus: Let the one who finds the child of Earth come forth!

Officer 1: (As soon as the King is revealed) Oyez! The King/Queen is revealed!

All officers and Horus: Oyez! The King/Queen is revealed!

Officer 1 and 2 should take the King to face the Deaconus.

Of the Ordination of the King of Earth

Deaconus: Is it your will to rise as King of Earth? (If not, then ask him/her to pass the crown to one of their own choosing).

Bring canidate to the center of the Circle, canidate facing North.


Deaconus puts on the King the outer robe: Thy armor, thy aura, thy mystery, thy ... (sign of silence). In the name of Kephra thou art risen in the North.

With canidate facing West, draw

Thy Love, thy Passion, thy Understanding, thy Beauty. (Give the Rose) In the name of Tum thou art risen in the West.

With canidate facing South, draw

Thy Force, thy Fire, thy Wisdom, thy Will. (Give the Scepter). In the name of Hathor thou art risen in the South.

With canidate facing East, draw

Thy Perfection, thy Glory, thy Attainment, thy Dominion. (Crown him). In the name of Ra thou art risen in the East.

Take canidate to his throne.

This is the pinnacle of power, the peak of the highest hill from which all the Land is seen. The ground is firm under thy feet. The path is wide where you walk.

Officer 1: What is the length of his Kingdom?

Deaconus: From North to South.

Officer 2: What is the breadth of his Kingdom?

Deaconus: From East to West.

Officer 1: What is the height of his Kingdom?

Deaconus: From the Abyss to the Abyss. Thou who ruleth over the Earth abideth in the Earth; thou art one with the Earth. Then art thou the fertile soil, the solidity of rock, the strength of stone, and the subtlety of sand. In the name of Horus thou art uprisen and declared the King/Queen of Earth!

Battery 333-55555-333.

Hear ye all! The King of Earth hath risen! Long live the King!

The PEOPLE: Long live the King!


Of the Death of the King

Deaconus: Your majesty, your court is assembled. We await thy word.

Horus (whispering to King): This is my Word which I give unto thee, thou King of Earth, to pass on as thy command: The time is nigh for the sacrifice.

King: The time is nigh for the sacrifice.

Deaconus: To what end do we make this sacrifice?

Horus to King: Tis the completion of the Greak Work we seek. (King repeats)

Deaconus: What shall be the sign of the Completion?

Horus to King: That all shall be as Kings and Queens of the Earth!

Deaconus: How shall it be so?

Horus to King: By uniting that which is below to that which is above.

Deaconus: How shall we accomplish this Union?

Horus to King: By the Word of Earth passing beyond the Kingdom and through the Veil to become one with the Angel of the Sun.

Deaconus: Ah! And what is the Word of Earth?

Officers and Horus: The KING!

Officers should grab the King and take him to the center of the circle. Officers 1 and 2 hold his arms out as Tau.

Deaconus: Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy for ever. Death is the crown of all.

Horus: I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star. I am Life, and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death.

Deaconus then takes the place of Officer 1, who then does her Dance of Death. During this, the people should repeat the mantra:
Death to the King, Long live the Kings.

After three circumambulations, Officer 1 stops in front of the King.

She makes a cross at the Crown, saying: ATAH
a cross at the Heart, saying
: Ra-Hoor-Khuit,
a cross at the Groin, saying:
a cross at the right shoulder, saying:
Ve Geburah
a cross on the left shoulder, saying:
Ve Gedulah
and a Great Cross, vibrating:

She then points the sword on the chest of the King, and finally thrusts the sword as through him. The King should then crumble as the sword is “removed.”

Horus: (leaves the altar and approaches the prone King, saying) Think not, o King, upon that lie: That Thou Must Die: verily thou shalt not die, but live.

He gives his hand and lifts him up, leading him back to the altar. He then continues: In the Scarlet Woman is all power given. I will lift her to pinnacles of power and fill her with my joy.

He then throws this energy into Officer 1, raising her to that of Babalon.

Babalon: (goes to the throne, saying) Let all approach me who would be King!

The Deacon should go first. For all that go after, she should make a great cross over them with the sword, place sword above head saying: In the name of Ra, sword on left shoulder saying, of Thoth, sword on right shoulder saying, and of Isis, I upraise thee O thou mighty King among the Kings of the Earth.

The Deaconus then goes around them and places the Crown on their head.

Officer 2 should be the one to lead those to the Scarlet Woman by asking: Is it thy will to rise as King? Upon an answer of yes, he should lead them all the way to the appropriate spot.

Horus: (after all are crowned) Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass and are done; but there is that which remains. Lift up thyself! for there is none like unto thee among men or among gods! Yea! Deam not of change: ye shall be as ye are, and not other. Therefore the Kings of the earth shall be Kings forever: the slaves shall serve. Strive ever to more! and if thou art truly mine—and doubt it not, and if thou art ever joyous!—death is the crown of all. The length of thy longing shall be the strength of its glory. He that lives long and desires death much is ever the King among Kings. Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire are of us. Aye! feast! rejoice! there is no dread hereafter. There is the dissolution, and eternal ecsatcy in the kisses of Nu.

Officers 1 and 2 then close the veil.

Officer: Battery 333-55555-333

Deaconus: Let the Kings depart this Temple of the Earth that they may do their will in the World.
