In Nomine Babalon, CXXVI

CXXVI

Lady of Mystery, goddess noir;

Arise in the nighttime, o evening-star,

Shedding Your light in the dark of Ammon!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Thou goddess of all life, pregnant from birth,

The mother of every creature on earth

And the dance of every constellation!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Hear the charge of the Goddess, “To Me! To Me!”

As she beckons to those who wish to be free;

Calling Her children from hither and yon!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

Most popular Hermetic Library blog posts of 2011

Well, I really wasn’t going to do this, but why not? The top 5 most viewed posts of 2011 on this blog are:

  1. DIONYSUS
  2. Hakim Bey and the Occupy Wall Street movement
  3. The Red Goddess and Crossed Keys from Scarlet Imprint
  4. White Trash, Black Magick (originals)
  5. Pre-release of The Hermetic Library Anthology Album – Magick, Music and Ritual 1

Yeah, that “Dionysus” video sure was something, wasn’t it? But, it’s nice for me to see one of the posts about the Anthology Album in that list too. Anyhow, if you missed any of these posts, check ’em out; if you did see them already, you could check ’em out anyway and re-live the experience.

The most popular search terms are:

  1. christopher conn askew
  2. thelema
  3. krampus
  4. hakim bey occupy
  5. unicursal hexagram

Nice to see Thelema near the top there. There are some nice posts about Krampus, but there’s a lot more Krampus stuff on the Hermetic Library tumblog, if that’s something you’re interested in. The Red Goddess from Scarlet Imprint, and the cover by Christopher Conn Askew made it on both lists. Of course, the Occupy Movement and the connection to the work of Hakim Bey was pretty popular on both lists too. But, there is currently only a single post that returns for the term “unicursal hexagram” and yet it was a very popular search term; maybe I should work on adding some more content responsive that term …

The Hermetic Library visual pool is a visual scavenger hunt for images of a living Western Esoteric Tradition.

Images of your ritual or ritual space, images of sigils or tools, showing off your own library or special volume from the restricted stacks, sacred spaces and places, esoteric artefacts and installations, inspired paintings and people – these and much more are part of the culture and practice of magick.

In Nomine Babalon, I

To the Lady of Life do I sing this praise

Of worship and love to the end of my days!

Let all open ears hear my acclamation,

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

“Babalon” by Christopher Conn Askew

 

This image was used for the cover of Scarlet Imprint’s Bibliothèque Rouge edition of The Red Goddess by Peter Grey.

 

“I am happy to announce that I have a new print available: ‘Babalon’. she can be seen in the photo above.

These giclee prints are printed using rich, deep ‘100 year’ lightfast pigments on fine, heavy 180gsm Hahnemuhle paper. As always, the prints were made by master craftsman Jay Foran at Alpha, and those of you who have bought prints from me in the past will be familiar with the impeccable quality of his work.

These prints will be approximately 12″x17″ (30cmX43cm) in size, with a white border, and are $100 US each.

these will be strictly limited to a single edition of 200, each print signed and numbered by myself. all of the past limited edition prints have appreciated quickly after being sold out, some to even five times the original price.” [via, also]

 

Christopher Conn Askew has a show going on right now, which you may want to check out, at the Merry Karnowsky Gallery, Nov 12th – Dec 10. 2011, in Los Angeles, CA, US.

Help kickstart In Nomine Babalon: 156 Adorations to the Scarlet Goddess

You may be interested in helping to fund a new work of poetic adorations, developed during a personal working by the author, called In Nomine Babalon: 156 Adorations to the Scarlet Goddess by Frater Peredur.

“This project seeks to fund the limited publication of a small book of poetic adorations dedicated to Our Lady of Abominations, BABALON. The book, which has already been written, is the result of a magickal working in which the Scarlet Goddess was invoked. It was Her wish to be adored in songs of love.

This publication will be strictly limited to a single run of only 156 copies and will never be reprinted. Each copy will be hand numbered and signed with the sigil of the author. The booklets will be approximately 88 pages in length and, once published, will retail for $7.00 apiece.

It is the goal of this Kickstarter program to obtain pledges for between 40 and 100 copies of the book. A pledge of only $5.00 will reserve a copy of the book for you at a discounted price. Due to the limited number of copies being printed and the Goddess’ wish to be shared as widely as possible, there will be a limit of 3 copies per donor. The money raised will only be used to offset the cost of printing, as the author does not seek to profit in any way from this publication. The book will be released on August 22, 2011.”
