I created this pendant, carved with Archangel Gabriel's ancient Sigil and the sacred Enochian language, fired, then glazed and fired once again. Threaded onto an adjustable 2mm black braided cord. The pendant measures 1-1/2' by 1' wide by 3/16' thick (37mm x 27mm x 4mm) and is topped with a stainless steel ring and bead. The writings of King Solomon indicate that the sigil of the Archangel Michael must be used to invoke his spirit on a Sunday evening. Archangel sigil on front, the name of the angel on back; Measures 1 1/4 inch (3 cm) in diameter; Made of lustrous, solid jewelers bronze; Accommodates a chain thickness up to 3 mm; Sigils are deeply engraved. The watchtower tablets are modified into sigils so as to include god names and three angels for each sigil. Why, for a 7-based system, the three additional god names that are also used in the ritual to call upon these angels weren’t included as part of the sigil is strange. This is the way the magickian should decide upon what angel can be utilized for what operation. Sigil magick is a vital advantage Enochian magick, as well as Click Here in general. Many of the EEs have sigils that Kelly received during skrying. THe general rules from modern systems of western magick for earning sigils can be simply applied to.
The Angels of the Heptarchia Mystica
The sigils of the ministers of angels listed here, are important for the sessions, too. Unfortunately we have no detailed informations on how these sigils should be used in the sessions. The only information available was given by the angel Camara on the 17th November 1582:
'Moreouer, when thow workest, Thy feete must be placed uppon those tables (The placing of my fete in practise) which thow seest written last comprehending 42 letters, and names. But with Consideration, that the first Character, which is the first of the 7, in thy former boke, be placed uppon the top of the Table, which thow wast, and art, and shalbe commaunded to haue, and use.'
You can read this information in two ways. The first way is that Dee placed the sigil or the character of the prince on the round table of the ministers. Tyson suggests another, more practicable idea. He things that the sigil of the angel that is ruling the day when the session takes place should be placed besides the crystal-globe.
The name 'Heptarchy' implies that the number seven plays an important role within enochian angel-magic. The name itself was invented by John Dee who had profound knowledge of the british history: Between 449 and 828 there was actually a ruling heptarchy. The number seven also possesses many layers of meaning in occult matters. Not only there are seven days a week, but also seven planets. In the modern esoteric paradigm of light-workers there are seven rays, a system developed by Alice Bailey from cabbalistic roots.
The seven planetary orbs or spheres are ruled by one angelic king and one angelic prince. the angelic prince is the more active element of the planetary force. Five more higher angels are controlled by these two angels. So there are seven times seven angels that define the planetary spheres. Kelley received these names letter by letter from a complicated cross that is made of seven big letter-squares with 49 letters in each of them. One square builds the center and the other six are arranged accordingly. All angelic names start with a 'B'. The received 49 angelic names were arranged in a big circle by John Dee, the 'Tabula Angelorum Bonorum 49':
Two angels - the king Carmara and his prince Hagonel - are special in the Heptarchy. Their names do not begin with the notorious 'B' as it is the case with all other angelic names. They also are assigned to two planets, the Moon and the Venus, that are associated to other angelic kings and princes. The angels themselves stated that the angel Baligon and the angel Carmara are just one and the same angel. Tyson's opinion cannot be backed up that these two angels are the overall ruling angels over all the other angels. Carmara himself does not resolve this question, but puts himself and Hagonel between the ruler of the world (which is obviously Jesus Christ, according to the christian paradigm) and the other angelic kings and princes. John Dee confuses this matter further by identifying Carmara and Hagonel with king Baligon (Venus) and prince Bagenol (Moon) as well as king Blumaza (Moon) and prince Bralges (Saturn). Carmara is the only one angel that wear a threefold crown, all the other angel kings and princes only wear golden headbands. Hagonel and the other princes showed the big seal of the grimoire - the Heptagon Stellar, as it was named by John Dee. Kelley assumed that it should be manufactured in copper. Tyson thinks that the sequence of days on this seal is the correct one. Here is the version that John Dee had drawn:
The Heptagon Stellar
The descriptions of the angels of the seven days sum up the few things we know of them. The sequence of days is the one of depicted in the Heptagon Stellar. At the beginning of the description of each day the sigil of the king appears, in which the names of the sons of the sons of light are written. I am following Tyson's opinion and inserted the metal which these suns of the suns of light had with them as a sphere in the vision Kelley had on the 21st March in 1582. The description of the angels are typical for grimoires of that time. The metals that are signifying the princes are not the same as the metals for the kings. The 42 ministers are compressed in a square. To get the 42 ministers you need to permutate the rows seven times: 7 x 6 = 42. As an example the first seven ministers of Bornogo: LEENARB, EENARBL, ENARBLE, NARBLEE, ARBLEEN, RBLEENA, BLEENAR.
Sigil of the 1. King Baligon: 1. Son of the sons of Light - EL
The king of Friday and the planet Venus is Baligon. Baligon weared a purpur robe and a threefold crown. In the vision he had a staff with three sections: The middle part was red and the other two were black. His bigger name is Carmara, that is pronounced Marmara by the angels (the first 'M' remains silent). He received the golden staff of rulership from Uriel, as well as the chair of teaching and wisdom. He appears first and is the teacher and steward of the heptarchical doctrine.
Sigil of Prince Bagenol
This angel had a shorter robe and a golden headband. In his right hand he had a ring or held a disk with a hole in the mid, which is his sigil and is called Barees. All sons and daughters (and their sons and daughters) of light are his servants. He is the first of the twelve and the power of earth-operations is his essence. He controls all kings, princes and nobles due to his nature. With the sons of light (and their sons) he manifests many wonders among mankind. He is also named Hagonel. His ministers appear as brilliant humans accompanied by many beings in the air. The letters of their names were on their forehead.

Sigil of the 2. King Bobogel: 3. Son of the sons of Light - Ave
The king of Sunday and the planet Sun is Bobogel. This angel appeared clad in a black velvet coat, trousers with velvet upperstocks overlaid with golden lace. Obviously this angel was a bit arrogant towards the two magicians. His office is spreading wisdom and all sciences. He teaches philosophy, natural history and the true understanding of the universal mysteries.
Sigil of the Prince Bornogo
His first prince is Bornogo who is associated with the Venus. Bornogo had a red robe and a golden headband. His office is quite catholic: He transforms corruptions and mistakes of the nature into perfection. Bornogo teaches metallurgy and looks under his king Bobogel after the true teachings, based on wisdom. The first seven ministers of Bornogo appeared in similar formal wear. The others were more rough in appearance. The last seven ministers appeared as women from the front and from the backside like men.
The 42 Ministers of Bornogo
Sigil of the 3. King Babalel: 4. Son of the sons of Light - Liba
The king of Tuesday and the planet Mars is Babalel. He appeared in a long white robe with a white sleeve at left and a black sleeve on the right side. He seemed to stand on the surface of water and had a golden crown. On his forehead the letters of his name were written. The power of this angel arises from the deepest waters and he is a great and powerful ruler of water.
Sigil of Prince Befafes
His first prince had a feathered red robe. This is highly interesting because this kind of robe could be a hidden reminiscence of the ancient culture of the Watchers that had also feathered cloaks. This topic I discuss in more details here. Like Bornogo he had a golden headband. On his golden girdle were his name written. He appeared to be lame and his outlook was aristocratic. He is prince of all oceans and he served Moses and Solomon. He also is named Prince Mares or Obelison (in egypt). The first seven of his ministers had golden headbands as a symbol that they are princes of the water. All ministers had their name written on their foreheads. These ministers are very powerful and have great influence, dignity and authority. Some of them control the currents of the water and control the saltiness of the sea. Others assist in sea-wars. Then there are some ministers that control the creatures of the deep-sea and the sea in general or deliver treasures or strange substances from beneath the waves.
The 42 Ministers of Befafes
Sigil of the 4. King Bynepor: 5. Son of the sons of Light - Rocle
The king of Thursday and the planet Jupiter is Bynepor. He appeared wearing a royal robe and a golden crown. The essence and power of this king is in everything and is distributed throughout all things. Although he has a beginning he has no end, ever. He is the manifesting vector of the Word of God and only little lower then the Highest Life Vita Suprema. His total essence is from the Word of God and he is the Higher Life Vita Superior that measures the Lower Life Vita Inferior with his hands. In my opinion this angel represents the principles of Huna. Bynepor starts new worlds, new people, new dynasties and new kinds of government.
Sigil of Prince Butmono
All living beings on earth are imbued with his essence and power and receive their matrix from him - with the humans as an exception, because they were built after God's image. He knows the origin, living and dying of all living beings and controls them by the passing of time. His ministers are formless, nebulous spirits, each of them having a glowing spark in their center. The first seven ministers were as red as blood, the second seven were orange and the third seven ministers were white. The glowing sparks of these ministers are bigger then the other ones. The fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh seven ministers had mixed colours and smaller sparks in their center. Each of these sparks had one letter of the name of the minister in it.
The 42 Ministers of Butmono
Sigil of the 5. King Bnaspol: 2. Son of the sons of Light - An
The king of Wednesday and the planet Mercury is Bnaspol. In the vision he appears in a red robe, having a golden crown. The secrets of the subterranean earth and the depths of the earth were laid into his hands. He knows all mysteries of the past.
Sigil of the Prince Blisdon
The angel Blisdon had a colourful robe with red as a dominating colour and he had a golden headband. He reveals or hides the secrets that are burried in the earth - following the orders of his king. In mountains he can find rich veins and hidden treasures, he knows all caves and subterranean rivers. On the appearance of his ministers nothing is handed down, except that they built a circle around a little clay-hill and their names were written on their hands.
The 42 Ministers of Blisdon
Sigil of the 6. King Bnapsen: 6. Son of the sons of Light - Hagonel
The king of Saturday and the planet Saturn is Bnapsen. In Kelley's vision he had a long robe and a golden crown. This angel exorcises and bann evil spirits. He also reveals the evil plans and thoughts of malevolent humans. He controls the gates of Death.
Sigil of the Prince Brorges
Brorges was dressed all in red. When he opened his clothes, horrible and ghastly flames issued out of its opening. Brorges is executing the orders of his king against evil spirits and humans. Not much is known about his ministers except that they carried a round table that they tossed into the fire.
The 42 Ministers of Brorges
Sigil of the 7. King Blumaza: 7. Son of the sons of Light - Ilemese
The king of Monday and the planet Moon is Blumaza. As most of the other kings he appears in a red robe, wearing a golden crown. Tradition as well as the knowledge of Power of the Names and the power itself is the essence of this angel. With those names the spirits of the earth can be controlled by humans.
Sigil of Prince Bralges
Bralges teaches the secret names of the invisible beings by which they can be summoned and controlled. He also had a red robe and a golden headband. His ministers are invisible and in Kelley's vision they appeared only as little puffs of white smoke.
Die 42 Minister Bralges
As I write this, I have ten days before I begin with the ritual known as gebofal, or at least a decent reconstruction of the spirit of what it may have been. For the most part, I will be following the works of Aaron Leitch, who is quite the Godsend when it comes to all things Enochian. The prayer that I will be reciting is 999 words, which leaves the 1000th word/insight to come from the Divine, as a parallel to the 50th day of illumination following the 49 days of the Counting of the Omer.
I started this work back in August of last year after having studied it for a couple of months prior (all you fans of astrology will note that Mars was at the beginning of its extended stay in Aries, my 9th house). and at the time I wasn’t sure I would be able to finish in time for an auspicious start to the gebofal ritual. The angels gave Dee & Kelley 40 days to finish the work, which is nigh impossible for a human being in my view. Perhaps if you multiply 24*40 for 960 hours, there’s a case to be made for 40 days.
A few notes about my approach: for each day I would work on the book, I would activate and wear the lamen and ring, and often I would activate the Sigillum Dei Aemeth also. Eventually, I lost some feeling in the tip of my middle right finger, but I made the choice consciously to sacrifice that. After each leaf, I would energetically activate it, as with any sigil, via gnosis (via the usual means). During the process, I’ve had a run of good luck, and noticeably so, without injuries or much in the way of things going wrong; it’s almost as if the intent and acts to work on Amzes Naghezes Hardeh has caused the angels to form a protective field around me. I’ll also add that Mars, the malefic out of sect of my day natal astrological chart, was also less Mars-y, or should I say I was focused on my will. With it in my ninth house, I was focused on the will to do something spiritual, which of course fits.
Angel Suppressing Sigils
All that’s left to do now is nine days of purification prior to the 28th, the day after Passover. I’m not Jewish, but was baptized Christian, and have come to be reconciled to some degree with Christianity. I will be re-doing Leaf 49 (see my 3rd update to “A Solution to Liber Loagaeth, Part 6“), which is more of a correction/purification than the restructuring of Leaf 1. I’ll also be correcting/purifying Leaves 2-10 and through about Leaf 25 or 30 thereafter, mainly on some incorrect letter identification on my part or on the part of previous transcribers whose work I was relying on to supplement my own judgment. I pretty much know the mistakes I made, so I know what to look for. I think I’ll be able to get it done…maybe.
I hope to only need six days to finish all of my corrections. These six days parallel, the creation of the world and the day of rest of God in Genesis, only in reverse (for today is my day of rest): much as the angels continually reflected on Jesus’ phrase, “the first shall be last, and the last, first.” The final three days I hope to recite personal prayers that the gebofal working is seen through, and this parallels the “mystery of the Trinity” spoken of by the angel of Wisdom, Galvah; it also parallels the three days encompassing death and resurrection of Christ.
I don’t have much more to add at this point. I’m already feeling fairly introspective as the 9-day period of purification approaches, so this is definitely quite the ritual. I can only anticipate it being intense, since this is a thrice-daily scrying of each Aethyr, followed by 19 additional calls (I will assume the last call will be the reading of Leaf 1 itself).
Please wish or pray for my luck and providence in this task. Thank you.
