I found the entry for Monday, Nov 19th in Dee & Kelly’s records (Mysteriorum Libri Quinque, Sloane 3188, Klein paperback pg IV-16) to be rather interesting. I have lines to do so I’ll only include a few excerpts, but all of it was divinatory. When doing this sort of divination, similar to divination through fiction (books, tv shows, manga, also webcomics, memes, etc), it’s not always one-to-one literally 100% accurate. I tend to pick up what it’s conveying without much confusion, even when exact details of the characters’ situations differ in places from my/others’ situations.
Before I type this up, I think it is important to remember that if your intention is to perform magick with intensity, things will probably get intense, and if you need to take the proverbial chill pill, that’s probably a good idea. I haven’t even started on it yet and the earth-side Loagaeth table 6 is already hitting pretty hard. I think this can apply even moreso when doing more “mystical” magick, or any magick that makes you confront the magickal experience of your own mind very directly. There’s not much point if you really do drive yourself bonkers. Just relax.
The following is all a quote from D&K’s records (again Mysteriorum Libri Quinque, Sloane 3188, Klein paperback pg IV-16, look at me go, citing my sources, oh yeah). I omit random Latin in some places. Note also that ‘i’ is sometimes pronounced as ‘j’, or at least that’s what it looks like.
If you’re into reading wacky magick experiences, there’s a lot more where this one came from. Note that EK is Edward Kelly (I’m pretty sure, Dee also worked with other scryers at some point), D is John Dee, BOBOGEL is a spirit, and (spirit) is a spirit marked in the book by its sigil and I don’t currently recall its name. Here they are scrying into a stone. I believe EK did all the scrying and saw/heard the spirits, Dee did lots of praying and also asked them questions and interpreted the received material while EK was in full-on receive mode.
EK - Then stept oute 9, at ones.
Then the great man returned, or was restored to his former estate of three particular men agayn: and they three leaned to the Ientleman with the Cape on his sholder.
BOBOGEL - Dee, Dee, Dee, at length, but not to late.
EK - In the pace of the former first Thre, appeared L E E.
Of the 9, which stept out, they of the first Ternarie, sayd, eche thus orderly
3 Quid non.
[random Latin, societate]
EK - They became one man, as the other before, but a slender and a weak one neyther so high as the first: ever laboring or striving with it self to stand up right, but still it bended, bowed, and inclined downward, as thowgh it wold fall for feblenes. The Body of this Compownd man, seamed to be of Gold glittering. When they retorned to theyr distinct shape: they semed naked and to be sorry, and lament: And Bobogel did part them from him, with his sworde, skabbard and all, as it hanged by his side.
Theyr letters were, N A R.
Then cam the Ternarie - B L N, and orderly they sayd this:
1 Ab illo.
2 Per illum.
3 Cum illo.
EK - This Ternarie of men becam to have one onely hed, and three bodyes, and that one hed was in good proportion.
The side of the Diaphonous Globe opened, and this Transformed Ternarie did point into it, toward the multitude: and the people had theyr brests naked and semed to wepe: and to wipe theyr brests, and where they wiped the place becam fayre.
This Ternary did seme to stand uppon a triangular stone, and to turne (as a horsmyll doth, abowt one axeltree) orderly agaynst, and by, the hole of the Globe so opened, and every of the three bodyes, in theyr turning, as they cam agaynst the open place of the Globe, they extended, and stretch out theyr hands toward the people: The first seamed to hold a rownd ball in his hand being little, but very fayre white.
The second body, his hand had in it, a little sword flamming with fyre.
The third had a thing like a hatt band of lawn, of many collours, which ever as his turne cam to be agaynst the opened hole, he seamed to cast toward the people, and the people did seme to be drawn to him ward, by the Casting of it toward them.
These Three bodyes, thowgh they turned contynually, yet did the face or Cowntenance of that One Compownd hed, stedyly and immoveably regard, or loke into the Globe at the forsayd hole therof.
(spirit) - A wonder to behold the heven, much more this.
[random stuff worth reading but not as relevant or cool]
EK - Then cam the Ternarie A N A.
They sayd, orderly thus,
1 Ab illo sed. (the illo sed is random Latin I like what I like ok)
2 Cum illo sed. Looking on his own belly.
D - Then I demaunded of theyr
Apparayle: and EK sayd that
these were braver than the former Ternary.
EK - They ioyne to gither into one hed and three bodyes.
The Hole of the Globe opened very wyde now.
This one compownd Hed had many eyes, many noses, many mowthes, as thowgh it were a Cahos of Faces, in one hed, but three bodyes. One of this bodyes had in his hand a little Ball, like the other before, very white, but with twynkling brightnes in it.
The other two bodyes, theyr hands were emptie.
They turn in order agaynst the Hole of the Globe. But the People regarded them not: but at the comming of the hand with the Ball, against the hole, the people loked a little up at it.
Bob. sayd, [random Latin, ignis]
These, being dissolved into theyr former state, go and sit (with hevy chere) by them that sat affar of from BOBOGEL. Theyr apparaill semed to be simple: theyr good apparayle was gone.
EK - They are divided into the day, as the other wer, before: But wheras the other are chiefly uppon that day which you call Monday, so ar these to be used onely on the Sabaoth day (Sunday).
Theyr use, is onely thus (observing the former order) with the Circle uppon the grownd.
The Letters onely where they stode, are theyr names and Characters. What doth the heven behold or the earth conteyne, that is not (or may be) subdued, formed and made by these?
What lerning, grownded uppon wisdome, with the exellencies in Nature, cannot they manifest?
One in heven they know.
One and all in Man, they know.
One and all in erth, they know.
Measure heven by a parte, (my meaning is, by these few).
Let God be Glorifyed: His name praysed.
His Creation well taken: and his Creatures, well used.
D - I craved for some playner Instructions, as concerning the use of these, and he answered.
(spirit) - Behold Are thy eyes so blynde ? Dost thow see and wilt not see? They mynde telleth the: Thy understanding furdereth, and they iudgment doth establish it: That as thow sawest a Body in three places, and of Three Compositions: Thowgh but two in forme. So shall this work have relation to tyme present and present use, to Mysteries far exceding it. And Finally to a purpose and intent, wherby the Maiestie, and Name of God shall and may, and of force must appeare, with the Apparition of his wonders, and mervayles, yet unhard of.
EK - He that sayd this, is as thowgh he were a king, with a crown on his hed: His apparayle was a long robe whitish: But his left arme was very white, and his right arme black.
Then cam after this King a Cumpany of 42: and every one of them had a letter in his forhed, and they were 7 in a row and 6 downward.
EK - The cloth draws.
