Elemental Talismanic Magick Using the Enochian System
by Frater Almost Ist Degree
The following is a crude outline which can be used to create a talisman based upon the Enochian system of Elemental “Keys.” It is very important to remember that the Enochian System, while highly flexible in it’s usage, is still perhaps THE most potent magical system in existence today. (I could be wrong, but hey…. Better safe than sorry, right?)
If you find this particular system appealing to you, feel free to use it as you will. If, however, you are a strict Enochian purist and dislike my simplified method of opening the spheres, feel free to modify this system to your own liking…. After all, magick is a subjective science and we, as magicians, can not afford to be too pre-disposed to our own little theories and practices.
A) The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.
B) The Lesser Banishing of the Hexagram.
C) Any purifications or consecrations that suit your will.
II) The Raising of Pure Magical Energy. (Building Magical Momentum)
A) The Opening by Watchtower.
B) Any similar ritual as the Opening by Watchtower which is
designed to raise a “vortex” of energy for the magician’s
usage of and working with.
III) The Opening of a Sphere.
Always call the spirits to you in this particular
fashion of working.
B) Use East for Air, South for Fire, West for Water, and
North for Earth.
C) Use spirit pentagram active or passive and the names of “AHIH”
or “AGLA” respectively. Also use the Enochian name of the
Element being used.
D) Use the Invoking pentagram of the particular element with the
God name ruling that element and the name of the Arch-Angel.
E) Use a preliminary invocation involving the Three Names of God
upon the coresponding Banner and the name of the King set
over the Element. This is very subjective and it is suggested
that the Invocations given in Liber LXXXIX be used here.
IV) The appropriate key is given.
A) Use the appropriate key coresponding to the element that you
are working with in order to fully conjure forth the desired
elemental powers. If you will, you may use the English
equivalent of the keys so as to save time and/or sanity.
B) Pause for a minute or two to feel the invoked force and, via
visualization, circulate the invoked element throughout your
body of light.
C) Declare that the spirits of the element have been duly invoked.
V) Consecration of the Talisman.
A) Move behind your altar and face the quadrant that you are
working with. In the center of the altar should be your
talisman/amulet and it should bear upon it all of the
appropriate sigils, runes, etc.
B) Lifting the talisman from the altar, hold it so that the front
(?) of it is facing the quadrant previously invoked. Hold it
on high and visualize the energies previously drawn into your
sphere as flowing through yourself and into the Talisman. Here
you must now state the purpose of the Talisman 10 times.
C) Once your talisman “feels” charged, place it back upon the
altar and, using your banishing dagger or your right index
finger, trace above it a large, invoking earth pentagram while
vibrating the God-name set over the element you are working
with. Do this exactly 10 times.
D) Place the talisman in a bag and set it to the side of the altar
that your coresponding elemental tool is near.
VI) Closings and further banishments.
A) Close the sphere by tracing the appropriate banishing
elemental and spirit pentagrams with the previously used God-
B) Do the Closing by Watchtower or some other closing which will
allow all stray or lingering energies to discipate.
C) Do the LBRH.
D) Do the LBRP.
E) Close the temple in your normal fashion.

Notes: The advantages of creating an elemental talisman as opposed to a planetary one are quite obvious:
1) You don’t have to worry about magical days and hours.
2) The system used can be adapted and changed for even
higher and more enlightening works.
3) It is much more efficient and rapid (in my opinion) than
having to go through the Golden Dawn’s rigermorole of
“Having passed the gate of the West thou, O creature,
“Thou art now blah…blah…blah…blah…!”
The disadvantages to this system are:
1) The forces, being elemental in nature, are less focused
when it comes to specific purposes. Thus, there is
always an element of “surprise” when one makes an
2) Enochiana must be studied thoroughly before one can use
this system. Sure you can use the English equivalent
keys but where’s the fun in that?
3) Yes, depending on the lunar phase, you must either make it
a talisman or an amulet. No doing this on the New or Full
Further Notes: I have used this system and have recieved very positive results from my workings. Already the system is known to work (in my opinion at least) and the talismans created have benefited many of my friends and colleagues.
