The Modified Opening by Watchtower. A never before published ceremony of the HOGD, ORA


The following ceremony was written for the now shuttered Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn Temple in Morgantown, West Virginia. The ceremony as written was to be performed by five members placed in the cardinal directions and one behind the altar, and prior to either qabalistic or enochian ritual. The Morgantown chapter of the Golden Dawn closed in 2014. This is the first time this material has been made available to the public.

I Reign Over You, Sayeth The God Of Justice,

In Power Exalted Above The Firmaments Of Wrath. In Whose

Hands The Sun Is As A Sword, And The Moon

As A Through-thrusting Fire; Which Measured Your Garments

In The Midst Of My Vestures, And Trussed You Together As

The Palms Of My Hands. Whose Seats I Garnished With

The Fire Of Gathering And Beautified Your Garments

With Admiration; To Whom I Made A Law To Govern The Holy Ones,

And Delivered You A Rod With The Ark Of Knowledge.

Moreover You Lifted Your Voices And Swore Obedience

And Faith To Him That Lives And Triumphs, Whose

Beginning Is Not Nor End Can Not Be; Which Shines

As A Flame In The Midst Of Your Palace And Reigns

Among You As The BalanceOf Righteousness And Truth!

Move Therefore And Show Yourselves! Open The Mysteries

Of Your Creation! Be Friendly To Me For I Am

The Servant Of Your God A True Worshiper Of The Highest!
