Column 410 Olympic Planetary Spirits

Postby Ankh » Sun Jul 31, 2011 8:20 am

93 All,

In 776 1/2 in chapter 4 Yetziratic Names, under column 410 there is a list of Olympic Planetary Spirits. I have a few questions that hope can be answered without spilling any magical beans.

1. Where would a magician use these names in the hierarchy? After the planetary spirits and before the spirits (Genii) of the 22 paths, I would presume.

2. Why would one use them to begin with?

One name I find captivating is Och, the Olympic planetary spirit of Tiphereth. The imagery that arises from contemplating the name Och (Aleph Atu-0, Vav Atu-5, and Cheth Atu-7) using the Atus is that the light is guiding and protective.

Don't think of them in that hierarchy - certainly not in any relationship to the Genii. They are more of "their own thing," though they do seem to be responsive to the hierarchy down to the planetary angel. They are spirits, so they are an alternative branching to the classic Planetary Spirits.

There hasn't been much published on them. Denning & Philips, in their book on planetary magick, deal rather well with them. I've worked with them a bit and they are quite cordial and responsive in my experience.

2. Why would one use them to begin with?

They're just "someone else out there to go meet and talk to." One might not wish to bother interacting with them at all. They have their place in certain Medieval works (where they seem to have originated) and, as I said, D&P did some excellent work with them.
