Planetary Conjurations

Easily one of the longest passages in the Munich Manual, the following is a translation of a series of astrological and planetary rituals used to time and carry out particular astrological and astral rituals.  Although out of place in a grimoire primarily concerned with nigromancy and necromancy, the section on astral magic and planetary conjurations is one of the more interesting to a modern magus or practitioner of the Work.  The following text is translated from Richard Kieckhefer’s “Forbidden Rites: A Necromancer’s Guide of the 15th Century”, and is taken from folios 68v through 96v.  The text is almost exactly the same to the conjurations, lists, and spirits as declared in the Heptameron of Pietro d’Abano, itself based on the Sepher Razielis, and is quite likely to have been derived from it, though with a few changes here and there, possibly due to corruption.

In addition, although not a part of the same excerpt, I’ve translated folios 108r and 108v, entitled “Favorable and Unfavorable Days of the Month for Inscriptions”. It describes, of the thirty days of a given month (probably lunar), which days are good for inscriptions, presumably on parchment, skins, or talismans.  It’s not astrological, per se, but continues a long tradition dating back from Egyptian and Roman times of fortunate and unfortunate days for certain undertakings.  It might be used in conjunction with the astral rituals described earlier in the grimoire.

It would seem that the conjurations aren’t actually conjuring the angels of the weekdays themselves, but other spirits in the name of the angels; however, the author was not always diligent in using the same formula in his conjurations, and so the Latin makes it seem that in some conjurations he conjures the angel and in others he conjures some other spirits by the angel.  In addition, the author put Friday before Thursday (swapping sections 5 and 6 below); I’ve corrected this and made minimal other changes to the layout and substance of the text (e.g. section 17 was originally split into two sections).  Other sections refer to the creation of images and their uses, the use of particular days or hours for certain rituals, and spirits and demons that are most powerful on certain days of the week.

As far as the names of angels, spirits, and God go, the text uses a lot of variant spellings and assignments. I’ve left all the spellings and assignments as they are found in Kieckhefer for the sake of authenticity to the original, so you might want to mentally swap the names or assignments on your own.  In addition to the names being corrupted and some words left untranslatable (in italics), the seals and symbols of the weekdays, planets, and angels may also have been degraded over time.  I’ve included my cleaned-up scans of the symbols where appropriate from Kieckhefer.  That said, most of the the information is contained in the Heptameron, with slightly different (perhaps less corrupted) names, seals, and conjurations.  I believe the original text is indeed the Heptameron with supplemental texts thrown in, but that’s just me. I pray the reader to forgive my lack of annotations, but with a text this large, I wouldn’t be able to handle them all myself.

19.  Images to be Used for Each Hour of the Day and Night (top)

On the works of images of the day:

  1. A note on the first for evil tongues.  In the first hour of the day an image is to be made for the binding of tongues, and the tongues that will be bound in this hour will never have the power to speak an evil word against you.  Make an image in the first day of a dog from pure silver or tin, and inscribe upon the head of the image the name of him against whom you work, as well as the name of the master of the day and hour in which you work, and on the side of the image the most powerful and highest name of the Lord, and fumigate the image with the incense mentioned above and with red blood, and wrap it in a new white cloth, and bury it at his place of whom you will, and he will say nothing evil against you.  Thus these images bind all eyes and mouths of men, and while this image is present there they shall never cause you harm.  On the side of the image write the name of the Moon and the name of the sign and of the angels of the season in which you work.  These names are the highly precious and blessed names of the Creator,  who created the sky and the earth.  When you shape this image, inscribe them perfectly that it appears proper.  These are the names: Lyara, Lyalguana, Loaffar, Vialuarab, Lebara, Lebarion, Layasales.  These are the seven names which you will write on the side of the figure, and write them in all operations of all things pertaining to the concord and friendship among men, birds, beasts, and all creatures.
  2. In the second hour of the day an image is to be made of benevolence, with one image of a man and one of a woman from the purest molten tin, and with the name of the man on the head of the woman and vice versa, and on their very chests and sides of the image you will write the seven following names similar to the seven mentioned above.  Join the images, binding them together with wax, so that they are well strengthened together, and bury it in the house of the one whom you wish to pursue, and between them a friendship shall last for as long as the image does.  These are the seven names: Malthayl, Caramel, Aariel, Zaraimayl, Parsail, Porbayl, Seralabelis.  These are also able to be read.
  3. In the third hour of the day an image is to be made for the bringing forth of all birds and fish to a particular place.  In this hour make from red bronze an image of an animal that you wish to catch, and inscribe on the head of the image the name of the master of the hour and on the chest in the same way, and on its side the seven names of the first hour, and fumigate it with dill or Indian barley, and bury it in the place where you wish to catch animals similar to the image you formed, and you will see the miracles of the Creator come to that place.
  4.

On the works of the images of the night.

I shall speak of the operation of the images of the night, such that the ancients strove for.  They are to be invoked who support the images, that all men who work on them will know of the lamp that cannot be extinguished.

  1. In the first hour of the night an image is to be made for the illumination of shadowy places or of any sort of dark place.  In this hour cast a bronze candle like a cross having seven mouths, and shape on any mouth of the cross these names: Sarastan, Hasas, Dalas, Sassa.  Put in any mouth of the cross a tongue of balsa, and write above the mouth these twelve names: Bezat, Berith, Zenit, Caffan, Dalfat, Dana, Aneth, Beas, Manith, Hassas, Dalaph, Sefa.  Make from this using this cross an image of a man holding with him the shape of a vessel as if he were pouring oil into a lamp, and fill the candle with oil that was not pressed out by hand.  Shape upon the front of the image the name Leorphahel or Leorpahel, and above the image the name Rosahal.  Similar to the candle of the cross, cover the front of the image so that it is unable to be uncovered, and light the mouth of the cross, which shall never be extinguished.  You will be able to make this image in a place that a woman has never crossed nor stood.
  2. In the second hour of the night an image is to be made for the foreknowledge of fortunes.  It is in fact the man Almera, who was one of the ancient sages, who first entered into the city people called Alandar, which he made in his image and into which no woman ever entered. In this hour cast an image from clear bronze, and write on the front of the image these names: Notooa, Har, Beel, Cead, Vasas, Naaya, Haat.  Mold the names Raagor, Ralaz, Branar, Cundaz, Natho, Jany on a palm frond and put it into the hand of the image.  Bury the image in the middle of a city or a town such that nobody may see you while you do this.  With this image you will be able to know beforehand the scorpions and other things causing harm in this place.
  3. For the chasing away of all reptiles.  In the third hour an image is to be made for the doing away with of harmful reptiles whether evil beasts such as locusts, vipers, or all evil things.  In this hour cast a bronze image in the likeness of the reptile you wish to fly off, and write on its front these names: Vabros, Wiez, Bercca, Beror, Berabut, Baramel.  And bury the image where you wish, and all that has been said will flee.
  4. For the fastening of a town or place what you wish to be deserted, or for enmity.  In the fourth hour of the night an image is to be made for the destruction of a desired town or place or for hostility.  In this hour urinate backwards in the style of a camel or cat and collect it in the cloth of a man, and go to the house of your enemy.  Write these names on the cloth with this water in the door of his house: Raccedi, Palicos, Pytalas, Pila, “I conjure you that you quickly destroy the house of so-and-so”.  It will be done quickly.
  5. For the dispersion of an army.  In the fifth hour of the night an image is to be made for the scattering of a gathered army from a camp or from some other place, or for evil clouds or hail.  In this hour cast an image from lead and red bronze equally mixed that it may weigh four pounds, and inscribe on it these names: Baraa, Atle, Hate, Carbara, Garglale, Ha, Conadiuro Famal, Alul, Beaali, Aguel, and Arpa, Nafaca, Paluo.  Fumigate the image in the incense that we have taught you, and conjure it by its seven names.  Bury the image in a high place, and such ill luck will come that the whole army will be scattered and flee.  If you wish to work for the dispersion of clouds, bury it in a high place and close to a mountain, town, corpse, or a place that has been sown with seeds, and the clouds will be scattered and that which you seek be fulfilled, and you will witness the marvels of the powerful Creator.
  6. To make enemies or enmity flee.  In the sixth hour of the night an image is to be made for the expulsion of enemies from a house in the town where they reside.  In this hour cast an image from red bronze, and inscribe upon it these names: Tartarath, Acuta, Col, Cafra, Cal, Guabrath, Afah, Audena, Cal, Matha, Coltasia, Bal, Mathail, Cafia, Falduc, Atal, Parclena, Cul, Mathiel, Fustaul, Gaulyar, Etal, Patath, Cicubael, Barath, Cabuel, Athael, Pera, Patua.  On the head of the image inscribe the name of the one for whom the image is made, and fumigate the image in the above incenses, and put it near his dwelling.  The evildoer will retreat from there to flee the house or town, and he will have neither peace nor rest butall his senses will be ruined.
  7. For the burning of the earth’s growths.  In the seventh hour of the night an image is to be made for the burning of that which grows on the earth.  In this hour cast an image of red bronze, and inscribe on it these names: Agug, Cantzit, Totman, Catua, Via, Meracuat, Vanath, Gara, Turat, Nuxae, Artha, Nar, “May fire fall from the sky onto the earth, which shall shake at this boundary”, Adrat, Mararat, Beguayl, Algayl, Carat.  Bury the image at the limit of a village, and it will not burn a green leaf within the whole boundary.
  8. For the gathering of bees or pigeons or other kinds of birds.  In the eighth hour of the night an image is to be made for the capturing of bees or their beehives, or pigeons and their nests, or other birds for the place signified at a place remote from the city walls.  In this hour cast an image of a bee from gold from a weight of gold, and inscribe on it these names: Cadota, Carosa, Astab, Yatyon, Vetartuna, Taracta.  Bury the image in a high place at that boundary and it will tame all bees that are around that wall.  The image of a pigeon will do the same as the above for them and their nests, and the same for all other birds.
  9. Make this image for calling forth all the birds that you wish to capture.  In the ninth hour of the night an image is to be made for the calling forth of whatever birds you want to whatever place you desire.  In this hour make an image of the bird you wish to call out, and inscribe on it these names: Totarati, Tuata, Berhantual, Toluhaya, Ya.  Put it where you wish to capture birds, and they will be tamed.
  10. For the dispersion of an army besieging a town or fort.  In the tenth hour of the night an image is to be made for the scattering of armies besieging a town or fort.  In this hour cast two images from two different kinds of metal: these may be red bronze, lead, tin, silver, or iron.  Once these two images are in one body, and the image has two heads, one of a lion and the other of a bull having horns on its rear, write on its testicles these names: Horata, Taramat, Bata, Velaheia, Laa, Veda, Eaeffaxa, Lylatrala, Calmaatur, Mantut, Caatuas.  And on its side inscribe the likeness of a lion and a cow, and put between them the dung of a cow and a snake, and fumigate the the image using those things.  Bury it where the army resides, and a murder will befall them such that it will be as if one fell down, and they shall never return to their base orderly.

In the eleventh and twelfth hours of the night, nothing is to be carried out by the images, neither by orations or declarations, for thus have the wise said: It is proper for him who wishes to study and learn this science to first know the names of the hours and days, for in these the virtue of the magister is perfect, and you will complete these operations in the strength of the Creator, whose name is a blessing unto the ages of ages.  Amen.

20.  Names of Angels Serving Specific Times (top)

For as you wish to work from this book to call on the name of the Earth in her seasons, whichever they may be of the four, of course there can only be one operation.  This is because, in the season chosen, if some transgression was committed through some operation, nothing shall come to its desired effect, &c.

When you wish to labor at any such work or image for the cessation of the destruction towards men, whether by seeds or flocks, choose the time of day for your work, and if it will be at nighttime, take a nocturnal time with the names of the lying angels in which you shall work according to their individual names, without prohibition towards making great locusts or evil clouds or the things that are seen unto you, and these are the names which are written in the first season.

21.  Names of the Planets and of Parts of the Earth (top)

A note on the names of the Sun.

It suits us to speak and teach enthusiasm to know this science of images and the names of the Sun and the Moon and the Earth, and of the four parts of the world in any season.

In the first season, the Sun is in the signs whose names are these: Aries, Taurus, and Gemini.  In the second season, Cancer, Leo, and Virgo.  In the third season, Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius.  In the fourth season, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

Note also that as the names of the months are to be called upon, so too those of the days in which you will work, whose names are these: the first, the day of the lord is called Metraton, the second Yaspel, the third Geminiel, the fourth Gabriel, the fifth Michael, the sixth Raphael, and the seventh Sarphiel or Captiel, as written in sacred scripture.  Distinguish the names and you will agree with scripture.  And so the seasons are to be distinguished and known first, and then if you wish to finish your work in whatever work that you wish to carry out that you can distinguish and know the seasons, know then that the first season which begins the four seasons begins in the middle of March and ends in the middle of June, with the months of April and May in the middle, and these are the months of the first season, and have their associated astrological signs.

And when the first season arrives with the three months as mentioned above, the three months and their princes can be adjusted, joined, named, and called upon in that season alone, because they are of the first season and first throne of the east.  So the same goes for the second season and the season and throne of the west, the third and the season and throne of the south, and the fourth and the season and throne of the north.

When you wish to conjure, write on paper, or invoke names, day the names of the angels ruling the season and month and height in which you carry out your work.  The first height of the month is Nysan, the second is Yar, and so on for the others, that if you will work for good or goods, you will call on good angels, and if for evil call on evil angels.  Thus you will carry out all that you wish to work, and thus your work will be fulfilled, since that which has been prescribed by the teaching of this book is true and certain.

When it becomes proper for you to call the names of the Sun and the signs and the Moon and the earth and the four parts of the world, as the names of the Sun are four as the seasons are four, the first season will agree with the first, and you will name and call upon it, as the second with the second, the third with the third, and the fourth with the fourth.  And whatever the three signs are in a particular season, use them.  Likewise for the four names of the Moon, the four names of the Earth, the four names of the heavens, and the four names of the four parts of the world: the first name with the first season, the second for the second, the third for the third, and the fourth for the fourth, for all such things.

Lest you forget, the sigil or seal of the day is written or painted above, and you should carry out or begin your work in its day and hour, since a great virtue is in the seal or sigil by which your works may be completed.  Further, the names of the angels ruling the days of the week are to be called out.  It follows that you have to call out their names on the operations of the week according to the day.

The angel of the day of the Lord is Raphael, and if you will work on the day of the Lord, then name and call upon him, and so for all other things, as described in the above chapter completely, etc.  Therefore, in all works, name the angel of the day on which you carry out your work and write it, that by it being inscribed, it will greatly help you with the power of the Creator.

The names of the kings of spirits of the seven days of the week are written below, or all the angels ruling the days on which you carry out your work, and thus they will come and complete your wishes, and answer you in all questions.

Therefore the king Baytan rules and serves the day of the Lord, and his helpers are Caatus, Candas, Vambal, and the others that you may come upon.

Note that each day has an incense appropriate for itself, and with it you should fumigate your work in its smoke, and your work will be completed without doubt.  The incense of the day of the Lord is red or yellow sandalwood or something similar, and thus for the others as they are encountered in turn as you come across them, no matter the operation you should do on any day.

Note also that it is proper for you to write the names of the hours of the day in which you finish the work you carry out.  The first hour of the day is called Yayn.  In this hour letters are to be made for the destruction of the voices of men and their evil words, and for the binding of tongues, and so on as you come across the other hours, whether diurnal or nocturnal.

Note also that when you wish to write a letter or carry out a work, it is proper for you to call out the name of the hour and the name of the lord of the hour, which is the angel who rules and ministers to it.  These are the names of the angels ruling all hours of the weekdays.  The first hour is ruled by Raphael, and so on for the others that you come across in the same way, and also for the hours of the night.  The first hour of the night of the day of the Moon is ruled by Sarquiel, and so on for the others as you come across them, etc.

Note also that this goes for all the hours mentioned above, and you should know that the angels are ruled or ministered by the hours according to the planets ruling or ministering unto them.  All of the hours of the Sun are ruled or ministered to by Raphael, and so on for the others as you come across them, etc.

Note also diligently of agreement, that you should make all of the above have concord and conjunction between them with the rules.  The names of the angels should agree with their planet, day, angels, signs, and hours, and should answer to their names and heads as written above, as well as the angel who is mentioned in their own conjuration, as above in the heads of the images of the days which are ministered to in turn by the days.  Thus, the Sun ministers to the day of the Lord, and his angel is Raphael, and his sign is Leo, and so on for the others as you come across them.

It is proper for you to guard all of the above whenever you wish to work according to this book, and you will not be able to fail in anything, because you will come across this by whatever and whichever rules that you should have, and according to this book if you carry out this work and leave behind nothing, if you do not wish to err, and always note the first of the lunar month, because some of the days of the lunar month are good, some bad, as is told by this book.  Therefore, the rule is thus that when you wish to work on some day of the week for food or evil, diligently note the day which  may be performed considering the lunar month, as noted.  And if the day be good and convenient, do not leave behind your work of the day or delay it, lest your work not come to its full effect and you think, perhaps, that it was a lie.

Diligently turn away from this since, at the beginning of any one of your operations, you should write the names which answer to your wishes, and these are names from those of the Creator.  When you wish to call upon these highest names, humbly bend your knees and invoke them like this:

I invoke and humbly supplicate the highest names of God, that you aid us in such-and-such a work for its completion and execution: Agnas, Yana, god of Israel, Ybat, Suliat, Gnalas, Yemssamon, Haa, Dosa, Barian, Barian, etc.

I call upon and name you, Captiel, the angel set over the seventh day, which is the day of the Sabbath, that you work for me and not desist until all my wishes have been brought about to their effect.  I call upon and name you, King Mayron, Assayby, and your assistants Abymalib and Haybaly, Dot and Yfla, that you work for me and do not cease until you have completed my desires and wholly completed my cause.

I call upon and name you, o angels who preside over the day of the Sabbath, Captiel, Mataton, and Sarquiel who is Satraquiel, that you work for me and not leave me until all my wishes have been brought about to their effect.  I call upon you, o holiest name of God, Agnas, Yana, god of Israel, Ydar, Subar, Gnabas, Yemssamon, Haa, Dosa, Barian, and seek of you with all my heart and mouth that you deign to hear and aid me, and to fulfill all my desires, that I may be allowed to see a thousand armies in my service.

I call upon you, Cyayn, the first hour of the day, that you help me and make me see the armed spirits I have called, and you as well, Yan, who is the second hour, and you Dasura, the third hour, and you, Sala, the fourth hour.

I call upon and name the angels ruling those hours, Raphael and Anael and Michael and Gabriel.  I call on Saturn and his angel Captiel, and his signs of Capricorn and Aquarius, and their sigils which are these:

that they may aid me and make all the spirits I have called appear unto me, roused into my service.

I call you and name you, o Earth, who in the four seasons are called Yemat or Yameaa, that you aid me and make the spirits I have called armed into my service.  I call and name you, o angels who serve the four seasons, Amabel, Terayl, and Atrarayl, that you make those spirits come in the form of an army, armed into my service.  I call you, o strong angels Castiel, Matraton, and Fatael, that you fulfill my wishes and make those spirits come.  Come now by the sigil of Saturn, you spirits Genuum, Altibayn, Aflas, Analuabet, Eya, Mittaton, Sathane, or any other angels sent forth, that you be in this hour in my service, and bring forth the spirits Amamim, Astabam, and Hactanaabit, that they come quickly to carry out my orders, by the blessed name Abilfaelfiel, Anogodym, Dyamaon, Ana, Ana, Saoday, Athym, Adyr, Essiday, A, Daymior, Sabat, Adonay, Eloym, Eloe, Gna, Cythe, Seredye, Assylla, Yssessus, and Agnabora.  O company of angels, Cassiel, Matraton, and Satquiel, bring me Mira, Affla, Abralualit, Sayp, and Aladep, that they may now complete my desires by this holy conjuration, and by the conjuration I have made.  I call you o Tomitat, the name of the Sun in the fourth season, that you aid me to make the spirits I have called come in the form of an army into my service.  I call upon you, o names of the signs of the fourth season, that you help me with the same to make the spirits I have called come into my service, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.  I beg and call upon you, o Saarlaquia, the anme of the Moon in the fourth season, that you aid me for making the spirits I have called come in the form of an army into my service.  I plead and call upon you, O Salafen, the name of the heavens in the fourth season, that you help me to make the spirits I have called come in the form of an army into my service.  I call upon and beg you, o names of the four parts of the world of the East, Pedyoth, Malchaam, Mendie, and Danoe, and Yamhor of the North, that you help me and make the spirits I have called come in the form of an army into my service.

    Pls cross-check the angel in charge of Sunday which you listed as Raphael instead of Michael; consequently angel who rules he sun. Your posting very rich. Good effort.

    • polyphanes says:

      The translation is correct; the text does actually list Raphael ruling over Sunday/Sun instead of Michael, and Michael ruling over Wednesday/Mercury instead of Raphael. Although this would appear to be incorrect, this same switch of angels appears in multiple texts throughout the Renaissance, so I can’t discount the possibility of there being an alternate assignment tradition within the Western magical system of angels. Michael/Sun/Sunday and Raphael/Mercury/Wednesday is the most popular system, however, and the one I myself use. To translate the text as accurately as possible, however, I’ve refrained from changing the attributions given here.
