In the year of 1581 through the extraordinary
efforts of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly, the secrets that were
lost with the patriarch of the Bible known as Enoch were returned
to those who thirst for the knowledge of Light. Dee kept close
records of their intensive work. Although some of Dee's work has
been lost, much of it is to be found in Sloane Documents 3188,
3189, 3191, 3677, and 3679. These documents are to be found at
the British Museum in London.
of the most important breakthroughs in the rediscovery of these
lost secrets was an entirely new language. This language contained
its own grammar and syntax. It is an Angelic language often referred
to as "Enochian."
and Kelly used great care and effort when receiving the lost knowledge
of Enoch. The dictating Angel was the Great Angel Ave. Many hours
were spent bringing forth the information by Dee and Kelly. Often
times sessions would last 8 to 10 hours a day. Some of the material
was actually dictated backwards by the Angel so as not to invoke
dangerous forces of power.
beginnings of Enochian Magic were coming into place, but the information
was just information. It was not a system of any usable value.
Thus, for the most part, it remained dormant, undefined and unusable.
Then, over 200 years later, this body of raw knowledge that Dee
& Kelly painstakingly uncovered was given form and life by
the genius of S.L. MacGregor Mathers. Under the tutelage of Mathers,
the Second (Inner) Order of the Golden Dawn began working the
most powerful system of magic the world has or may ever see.
later in Chicago, a disgruntled Paul Foster Case (after being
expelled from the order by Moina Mathers) ,would lead a quiet
crusade to convince fellow students that Enochian Magic was "volatile
and dangerous." Case would even go so far as to have it sliced
and diced out of all Inner Order Teachings of a group he founded
called the "Builders of the Adytum." Others would follow
in Case's footsteps, claiming Enochian was too dangerous.

Teachings, it is not only safe, it is utterly effective in the
physical world, and illuminating in the area of Spiritual development!
and Kelly were the pioneers who blazed the trail. Along the trail
of forgotten and lost knowledge were the Four Watchtowers of the
Universe. These Watchtower Tablets were adapted by Mathers to
represent the Four Elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth.
is a definite hierarchy to each of these tablets. The hierarchy
in its highest form is not to be found on the Tablets, but comes
from the study of the Qabalah. It is the Divine Name of the Element
in Hebrew that first must be intoned and invoked. The reason is
that the Hebrew represents the Celestial influence and governance
and the Enochian hierarchy represents the Assiac or material governance.
each tablet there are three Secret Holy Names of God which are
extracted from the horizontal cross bar of the central cross of
each Tablet. In all there are twelve Holy Names on four Tablets
which infer a serious connection and bridge between the Macrocosm
and the personal Microcosm of one's own "sphere of sensation."
Names are invoked during the four Elemental Grade Ceremonies (initiations)
by the Hierophant of the Golden Dawn in the Outer. Through the
power of the Secret Names the general nature of the element involved
in the initiation is filtered through the Tablet into the "Aura"
or sphere of sensation of the advancing candidate. The result
is the establishment of a magical link and affinity with the element
of the Initiation. This serves to empower the candidate in that
new elemental powers are now available to him or her.
process depends on a trained and empowered Hierophant, and can,
in fact, be performed in full Temple "astrally" to allow
the elemental link to exist for members who live hundreds or even
thousands of miles from a Temple.
Elemental King is extracted from a spiral whirl around the
Central Cross to be found on each Tablet. There is one King
per Elemental Tablet.
When the Adept invokes the three Secret Holy Names of God,
the King is also automatically activated. In addition, the
King may be invoked as a specific force.
The King is
always invoked when lower elemental forces on the Tablet are to
are six Seniors on each of the Four elemental Tablets. This
makes a total of 24 Seniors in all. The Seniors follow the
King in the Order of Hierarchy. The Seniors are found in
the Book of Revelations as the 24 Elders who bow down before
the Throne of God.
Seniors act as a kind of funnel for the specific forces
of a particular planet. The King relates to Sol. The planetary
forces of the Seniors is configured and transformed within
the specific elemental Nature of the Tablets.

they work in a kind of collaboration with the elemental King.
There are rituals such as the Consecration of an Elemental Tool
when the power of the Seniors are called upon. This allows the
elemental Weapon to receive in the charging phase the Planetary
powers through the elemental nature of the planet. Later when
needed by a trained Adept, the tool can then project this force
for the purpose of magical and alchemical workings.
CROSS ANGELS (SEPHIROTIC CROSS)
are four Sephirotic Crosses on each Tablet. They are often
referred to as Calvary Crosses. There is one cross in
on the Fire Tablet, there are four sub-elements of Air,
Water, Fire, Earth. There is a cross in each. On a colored
depiction of the Tablets these crosses are white, which
like the Seniors denote a spiritual nature rather than
an elemental one.
are two angels per cross. One calls forth a serviant angel and
the other is used to command the angel. These angels are only
invoked when the Adept wishes to work with a specific subservient

Angels help to regulate and balance the forces employed.

highest name of Spirit in this Tablet is EHNB. This is the
purest Spiritual force and is only invoked when some empowering
is required from the direct force of spirit.
Tablet of Union is placed on the center Altar to act as
the central hub from which the Elemental Tablets are spokes.
Elemental Tablets are introduced one at a time in the Grade Initiations
of the Golden Dawn. There is an important Initiation that is not
depicted on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. It is the Portal Initiation.
It is attributed to the top point of the pentagram which is Spirit.
Thus, in the Portal Initiation of our Order, the Tablet of Union
is introduced as it represents the building Spirit or actuating
glue between the elements.
only reveals a miniscule amount of information on Enochian Golden
Dawn methodology. In fact, much of the body of the Second Order
Enochian Work remains unpublished and safely in the hands of the
College of Adepti.
Magic requires a solid and firm foundation in the study of the
Qabalah, Geomancy, Tarot, Alchemy, and Astrology. It is not a
toy but a powerful system that should be employed with the same
caution a prudent person uses who would handle a loaded gun.
above information is only a tiny fragment of Enochian knowledge.
It is not complete, but rather given for the purpose of general
understanding. It is vital that to fully actualize Enochian forces
and powers, one must transform through Outer Order Grade Initations
and beyond. There are some very good books on Enochian out on
the market. However, some are extremely incomplete and over-simplified
so a to attract more readers and sell more books. These books
(many crammed with faulty information) are extremely dangerous
in the hands of the novice. If not dangerous, then completely
