Comments

¶ A culmination of over fifteen years of magical operations conducted by two practitioners of ceremonial magic. It is a distillation of the received words, statements, formulae and oracular visions given to the seer by the Genii of the Domes. These genii, their sigils and qlipphotic counterparts are found in the holy book LIBER ARCANORVM twn ATV tou TAHUTI QVAS VIDIT ASAR IN AMENTI SVB FIGVRÂ CCXXXI LIBER CARCERORVM twn QLIPHOTH CVM SUIS GENIIS ADDENTVR SIGILLA ET NOMINA EORVM (essentially, the Books of the Genii of the 22 Scales of the Serpent and the Qliphoth), by the Master Therion (known to the Vulgar as Aleister Crowley). Crowley's obscure Liber 231 remains one of his most enigmatic received magical texts, and one whose genesis directly concerns the workings of astral magic and trance-mediumship. A Gathering of Masks is the summation of direct magical workings with the Genii of the Domes, the spirits governing the revealed mystery of Liber 231, and serving as the wards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot . The twenty-two evocations of the Genii of the Domes reveal a patterning of power and gnosis heretofore little-explored in the practice of the Art Magical. The book commences with the author's Introduction, entitled "By Seal and Sphere: A Treatise on Astral Magic". The heart of the work is comprised of twenty-two oracles, each of which is accompanied by a commentary and a unique Queen Scale sigil derived from the Work. The book also includes several illustrations by artist-author Barry William Hale of Fulgur Limited. Of interest to scholars of Thelema and practitioners of ceremonial magic, 'A Gathering of Masks' stands as an outré magical record of the Divinatory Art.
