Liber Obscuris Dies Veneris: A Ritual For Black Friday Employees

Retail workers on black Friday go through pure torture. I’ve been there, it’s not fun.

Here’s a ritual I constructed to help make your day a little better. It mixes a little bit of Thelema pantheon with traditional Golden Dawn tradition. The suggested tools are good if you have that stuff lying around. If not, you can always prepare for next year!

Liber Obscuris Dies Veneris 

Suggested Tools: Black robe. Altar Lower Right: rose, cannabis indica, or a copper plate. Altar Upper Left: lighter, sword, or piece of gold. Altar Lower Left: a water cup, or a mercury thermometer. Altar Upper Right: A stuffed unicorn or something purple. Also a water cup is acceptable here as well. Altar Middle: White Candle. An app that tells you where each planet is in the sky. GoSkyWatch on iOS is good.

The Ritual:

Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

Say: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”

Analysis of the Keyword:

Stand straight. Facing West. Put your right hand over your body and your left hand at your side. Say:

INRI.
Yod. Nun. Resh. Yod.
Virgo, Isis, Mighty Mother.
Scorpio, Apophis, Destroyer.
Sol, Osiris, Slain and Risen.
Isis, Apophis, Osiris, IAO

1. Perform the sign of Osiris Slain and say “The sign of Osiris slain.”
2. Perform the sign of Isis mourning and say “The sign of the mourning of Isis.”
3. Perform the sign of Apophis and Typhon and say “The sign of Apophis and Typhon.”
4. Perform the sign of Osiris risen and say “The sign of Osiris risen.”

Extend the arms again as in 4 and cross them again saying: “L.V.X., Lux, the Light of the Cross”.

Comment:

I’ve left some of the tools open ended. If you choose a lighter, be sure to ignite the flame during the part where you use it. If you are using marijuana, you may smoke it. I don’t want to assume everyone knows the LVX signs and the hexagrams by heart yet, so I’ve re-uploaded these from Thelemapedia for your use below.

    93s Soror,

    Would you care to elaborate why you included Mercury? I assume this is for the association with commerce?

    Also, is there a reason nothing is specified to be placed in the upper right corner of the altar?

    Thanks!

      Care Soror,

      I included Mercury for both communication and commerce. I’m hoping by invoking Mercury it gives people the wisdom to deal with shitty customers who don’t know what they want.

      The reason nothing is specified for the upper right corner of the altar is because that’s where Chesed would be and we aren’t working with Chesed in this particular instance. That said, you should probably put something there because unbalanced Mercy is weakness, etc. I’ll edit the article to say that you should put something there.
