Last year, I published a detailed article on a variety of folk magical traditions and rituals surrounding the blessed Feast of Epiphany.
Today, I celebrated the Feast as per tradition, with the doorway chalking ritual, house exorcisms and blessings, and offerings to the Lord to commemorate the Gifts of the Magi to the Holy One Who Was And Is To Come.
I spent the day in service to the poor and people with cognitive and physical disabilities and illnesses to symbolize Christ’s Gifts to the least fortunate members of society.
In addition, I took this hallowed opportunity to clean my dedicated Temple and exorcise, bless, and reconsecrate all of the water goblets I use for Offerings to the Most High on behalf of my spiritual Court.
Thereafter, I made fresh Offerings and took time for communion with the Divine and reconnection with my Ancestors, Patron Angels, and Olympic Spirits. Stepping out of the business of daily life to stand in the Holy and Eternal space of the Spirits with nourishing and inspired a deep sense of peace in the tumult of the day.
Finally, I used this sacred Epiphany to exorcise my Pentagonall Figure of Solomon, about which Joseph H. Peterson’s (2019) edition of the Lemegeton’s Goetia states:
“This figure is to be made in Sol or Luna and worne upon the brest with the seal of the spirit on one [the other] side of itt. It is for to preserve [the Exorcist] from danger, and allso to command by &c.“
My own Pentagonall Figure was finely crafted by Adley’s Magical Art out of gold-plated brass. Since the grimoire allows “Sun or Luna” and the Day of Epiphany fell on the Day of Luna this year, I exorcised, blessed, and consecrated it on the Day of Luna.
How did you spend your Day of Epiphany? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
As the Magi gifted Christ with Myrrh, Frankincense, and Gold, may the Lord bless, increase, gift and guide you and all you care for out of the infinite riches of His Grace. SHEM YESHUAH, Amen!
