Order of the Golden Dawn

The tradition of the 1880s Order of the Golden Dawn a watchtower or guardian in ceremonial & derived neopagan magical tradition is a tutelary spirit of one of the four cardinal points or “quarters” (north, east, south, and west). They are also variously associated in many traditions with each the four classical elements (earth, air, fire, and water) and stars (Fomalhaut, Aldebaran, Regulus, and Antares). Wiccan circle-castings in general no longer mention the Watchtowers by name. Another important development is experimentation with the attribution of elements to the directions, instead of adhering to the attributions used by the Golden Dawn and Gardnerian Wicca (north/earth, east/air, south/fire, west/water). Below is a invocation of The Watchtowers by their Angelic Administrators. Each direction has a specific Archangel that relates to that position. The Watchtowers are invoked during the ritual of casting a magic circle. Ritual Invoking The Watchtowers I call on the guardians of the watchtowers Raphael Archangel in the East, guide of those who journey by land, sea or air, consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners. Assist me in my needs and in all the sufferings of this life. (Air) Michael Archangel Of the South, Defend us in battle, Grant us protection during times of struggle, remove all negative energy or entity from our path.(Fire) Gabriel Archangel Of the West, Intercede for us, lift us and fill us with the Divine spirit, Allow your courage and strength to connect us In our faith. (Water) Uriel Archangel of the North shine your light of truth and wisdom now. Ground us in the knowledge to walk our path. (Earth) This I call in with an open heart and A love of all life upon this earth. Blessed Be.
