To be performed on a New Moon at the Earth Gate, where you have minimal light pollution and a clear, unobstructed view of the stars. It can be anytime during the night but an hour or two before sunrise is ideal.
Place four waterclear (AAA quality) quartz points, each at least 3″ tall and empowered with one of the four elements, at the appropriate cardinal directions (south/earth, west/air, etc.). Wear all black, loose-fitting clothes, and around your neck a leather pouch containing a piece of the sacred stone moldavite charged with the fifth element, azoth. The stones may be charged by elementals or by an herbal tincture, or both.
Open the ceremony by saging the area with a smudge stick, walking counterclockwise around the Earth Gate, waving the smudge stick clockwise while “combing” through the smoke with a feather, as you chant the Diabolus nine times. Upon completion of the Numinously-Sinister chant snuff out the sage, placing it outside the Earth Gate to the northeast, and then step into the center of the Earth Gate.
Now to unlock and open the Elements:
Facing South, trace/visualize the Sigil of the Seven Gates, watching it turn from blue to silver to green, then sing “Agios Kabeiri” while imagining yourself becoming Earth.
Facing West, trace/visualize the Sigil of the Seven Gates, watching it turn from yellow to black to blue, then sing “Agios Lucifer” while imagining yourself becoming Air.
Facing East, trace/visualize the Sigil of the Seven Gates, watching it turn from green to white to silver, then sing “Agios Elutrodes” while imagining yourself becoming Water.
Facing North, trace/visualize the Sigil of the Seven Gates, watching it turn from orange to gold to red, then sing “Agios Olenos” while imagining yourself becoming Fire.
Now turn to face the Big Dipper, hissing “Aperiatur stella, et germinet Kaos” as you assume the Liferune posture. Vibrate “Nythra Kthunae Atazoth” seven times, then “Binan ath, Ga wath am” once. Now visualize a stream of octarine vril descending from the Big Dipper and feel it entering into your body through the crown chakra, suffusing your whole body and aura with its acausal potency, energizing and numenizing every cell of your being. Continue this visualization for at least a quarter of an hour while you slowly vibrate “Atazoth”. Hold up your outstretched hands in reverence of the Big Dipper regardless of any possible discomfort you may feel during.
Upon completion of the visualization, sit down cross-legged and feel the energy raised seep from you down into the buried tetrahedron below you, which energy then spreads to infect and transform the area around you. Continue for as long as intuition inclines. When finished, bow to the North and cry out, “Agios o Atazoth”, then depart.
