This ritual was composed as a kind of homage to Dion Fortune and an experiment to try on her model of magic. Fortune’s early work discussed her magical model of the Three Rays of the Mysteries. The Green Ray was the pagan ray of elemental power. The Blue Ray was the Kabbalah-Hermetic intellectual content of occult study. The Violet Ray was a devotional strand of esoteric Christianity. She maintained that initiates required intellectual facts which could be illuminated by initiatory flashes of light; if the magician’s mind was empty, what would the light illuminate? Additionally, initiates needed elemental force and vitality life power to enact the will of the Gods. Into the mix must be added the heart, compassionate devotion to humanity; hence her inclusion of the Christ-consciousness.
