Enochian Cipher & Master Mandala

Two important components in Jacob's Wheel are the 21-letter pattern and the ALBaM Cipher. We'd need to have similar structures in an Enochian version of the wheel. Jacob's Wheel is a series of 22 mandalas on a 3-ring, 7-spoke structure where each of the sub-mandalas contain 22 glyphs. The glyph structure for the remaining 21 mandalas follows the same pattern as the master mandala as the glyphs cycle through the rings and spokes. Therefore, Jacob's Wheel has two perspectives: the large master mandala with its children mandalas and glyphs, and each individual mandala. The master mandala is Jacob's Wheel writ large and it's also the mandala at the center of the master mandala. Since the master mandala establishes the basic structure of the remaining mandalas we have to decide which version to use to set up the Enochian Wheel.

The mystical Spirit Mandala is called the Mother of All Mandalas because it is the only mandala where the numbers 1 through 21 directly coincide with the actual letter placement on the mandala (among other things). The center glyph (or letter) is the theme of the mandala—it is what is being expressed or actualized through a particular cycle. I see eight basic forms: Four are where the vertical spoke is upward, and four have the vertical spoke downward. The number one can begin the count at four points: (1) clockwise on the inner ring; (2) counter-clockwise on the inner ring; (3) clockwise on the outer ring; and, (4) counter-clockwise on the outer ring.

{Upward Heptagrams - 27Kb} {Downward Heptagrams - 27Kb}

Notice that the 21 numbers from our magic "square" are now in order and can be traced by "connecting the dots" creating two types of spirals (counter and counter-clockwise) and two types of heptagrams (inner and outer). Patrick Mulchay calls the spiral in Form #1 Evolutionary and the spiral in Form #2 Involutionary.

"Now, if we assume that the inward spiralling mandalas are involved with the process of involution (or the incarnation of spirit 'down' into matter) and that the outward spiralling mandalas are conversely related to the process of evolution (or the 'raising up' of matter to spirit)..." (source)

However, if we accept Patrick's basic structure that the outer ring = Kether, middle ring = Chokmah, inner ring = Binah, heptagram = Chesed to Malkuth we can show that there are four versions of the master mandala beginning on the outer ring. Two are upward heptagrams running clockwise and counter-clockwise, and two are downward (or adverse) heptagrams running clockwise and counter-clockwise. All have inner heptagrams. Therefore, I'd accept Patrick's supernal triad / ring assignments but state that the ring and not the spiral direction seems indicative of the involutionary or evolutionary phase. Assuming Nutshell: if there's an inner heptagram it's involutionary and if it's an outer heptagram it's evolutionary. This is important because of how the glyphs cycle—I think they're going to trace the heptagram and spiral in the opposite direction where the Divine gives Form #4 and we respond with Form #1.

{Divine Creation & Initiation}

Another way to think about this is the token-ring structure of computer networks where the network queries the current location of a TOKEN. For the sake of argument, our Token = 22nd Enochian Letter which is either embedding or manifesting. Two considerations: (1) the path of the Divine, and (2) the path of Creation.

That still leaves us with which form to use as the basis for the Enochian master mandala. The Sigillum Dei Æmeth may have a clue. Which version of the eight basic forms describe what's occuring on the SDA? Especially when we consider the Sons of Light ... (which also may require changing the zodiac and planetary assignments):

I = Sol, Ih = Luna, Ilr = Venus, Dmal = Jupiter, Heeoa = Mars, Beigia = Mercury, Stimcul = Saturn

My best guess is that the Sigillum Dei Æmeth is an adverse heptagram beginning on the outer ring running clockwise (Form #3). This is based on (1) the Sons of Light running clockwise, (2) the heptagon created by the adverse heptagram, and (3) Kether = Outer Ring. However, if I was standing in back of the SDA it's probably Form #4 (adverse).

The GAVaX Cipher

Since each series of mandalas cycles through the alphabet we'd need something similar to the ALBaM Cipher to establish the basic structure. We'll assume there's a 22nd Enochian letter by using a question mark to represent the "missing" letter. (Note: I don't know much about Pat Zalewski's 22nd Enochian letter but this may be a good place to pin it). First, why is the ALBaM Cipher so important? If you sum the numbers 1 to 21 they equal 231 and you can create a magic "square" (3 rows by 7 columns) where each column equals 33. The number 33 is significant because it's the root of GLGL (wheel) mentioned in Enoch's chariot vision and it's also mentioned in the Fourth Enochian Key. The number 231 is significant because of the 231 Gates of the Sefer Yetzirah.

These 231 Gates are 231 Hebrew letter pairs created by several methods. The Kabbalistic Method involves creating an array (21 by 22) where Aleph–Tau is the first row (right to left in sequence), Aleph–Shin is the second row (skip one letter), Aleph–Resh is the third row (skip two letters), etc., -- creating 22 arrays altogether. Notice that AL repeats on the 12th column and 11th row of the Aleph array, BM repeats on the Beth array, GN repeats on the Gimel array, etc.

In Aryeh Kaplan's Sefer Yetzirah there are two sets of arrays in the appendix. The first set are the 221 Gates of Rabbi Eliezar Rokeach of Wormes used to create a golem and include 22 arrays (Aleph, Beth, Gimel, etc) where the 11th line contains one of the following letter pairs: AL, BM, GN, DS, HO, VP, ZTz, ChQ, TR, YSh, KTh, LA, MB, NG, SD, OH, PV, TzZ, QCh, RT, ShY, ThK. The second set of arrays appeared in Emek HaMelekh in 1563 and are also used to create a golem. The first 11 arrays are ABGDHVZChTYK and are the Partzufim, or "face" (Chokmah to Malkuth including Daath) and the next 11 arrays are LMNSOPTzQRShTh and are the Backs (Chokmah to Malkuth including Daath).

The ALBaM Cipher is the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet divided in half and paired together: AL, BM, GN, DS, HO, VP, ZTz, ChQ, TR, YSh, KTh. These 11 letter pairs and their reverse pairs (LA, MB, NG, SD, OH, PV, TzZ, QCh, RT, ShY, ThK) are similar to the repeating letter patterns of the 231 Gates.

ALBaM gets its name from the first two pairs of letters: ALBM. These pairs also appear in the 22 Jacob's Wheel mandalas. The first two letter pairs for the Enochian alphabet are BP and CQ and their values are 31 + 42 = 73. Since nothing snazzy as ALBaM pops up with these two letter pairs I used GAVaX since GA = 31 and VX and = 42. GA appears in the Eleventh Key, VX appears in the Thirteenth Key, and MIAN = 73 is in the Twelfth Key. Additionally, the first full cycle of Jacob's Wheel runs through 73 years, and the Hebrew words for Gimel and Golem (GML) = 73.
