The O9A Septenary Sigil
(pdf)

Extract:

The O9A septenary sigil, unique as it is, has – since it was first made public in the 1970s – puzzled some modern Occultists.

As exoterically drawn and reproduced, as above, the seven points which touch the outer circle symbolically represent the septenary spheres, with the lines joining the spheres the connexions or pathways between them.

Yet this exoteric representation is merely a 2-dimensional rendition of some-thing which is esoterically, on one level, 3-dimensional – as in the artistic depiction below – but which on a higher esoteric level is 4-dimensional since what is symbolically represented – the seven spheres and their connexions or pathways – are fluxive, mutable, changeable, as the psyche of the initiate fluxes and mutates as they progress from one sphere to another and explore the pathways between them. They are fluxive as the pieces of the O9A Star Game are fluxive, are transformed, as they are moved within, and from, one sphere to another. For as Adepts will apprehend, the use – the ‘playing’ – of the advanced Star Game is the 4-dimensional fluxive O9A septenary sigil […]

Historically, other simpler septenary sigils exist […]

In the context of Renaissance septenary sigils, the O9A septenary sigil – in its 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D formats – is an evolved representation of the nexion that is the septenary system, and thus also a talismata to use in the type of sorcery appropriate to each format […]

Classifying O9A Texts
(pdf)

Since the early 1980s, beginning with the Black Book of Satan, the Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) has published and circulated thousands of texts; so many in fact that one academic wrote:

“the ONA has produced more material on both the practical and theoretical aspects of magic, as well as more ideological texts on Satanism and the Left-Hand Path in general, than larger groups such as the Church of Satan and the Temple of Set has produced in combination [which] makes the ONA an important player in the theoretical discussion of what the Left-Hand Path and Satanism is and should be according to the practitioners.” {1}

Given (i) the sheer volume of O9A texts, (ii) the growing interest in the O9A both academically and otherwise, and (iii) the profusion of recent (post-2011) texts dealing with aspects of O9A esotericism such as links to Hellenic hermeticism and why the O9A represents a ‘sinister-numinous’ and modern pagan tradition {2}, it seems apposite to place now familiar O9A texts into their historical and esoteric context.

The Seven Fold Way: A Modern Practical Guide

A Modern Practical Guide To The O9A Seven Fold Way
(pdf)
Second Edition

°°°°°

The five fundamental principles of the Seven-Fold Way (7FW) of the Order of Nine Angles are, as described in the above text:

(i) That the 7FW is an individual undertaking – and individual quest, or anados – and one which often takes a decade or more to complete. That is, success or failure is down to the individual; down to their determination, their self-honesty, their willingness to undertake certain experiences, and their ability to learn from their failures, their mistakes, and from their triumphs;

(ii) that both esoteric philosophy – O9A or otherwise – and everything written about the O9A by either Anton Long or by others, is/are irrelevant in comparison to what the individual learns and discovers for themselves by following the 7FW;

(iii) that the 7FW is not an Occult ‘Right Hand Path’ nor an Occult ‘Left Hand Path’ nor even ‘satanist’, but rather a means for the individual to develop their own unique weltanschauung and one which enables them to transcend such labels and categories;

(iv) that the 7FW is only one (fairly recent) Occult tradition and praxis among thousands (ancient and modern) and does not make any claims about being superior to or better than or more ancient than any other Occult tradition and praxis, stating only that it has been proved over decades to work, for some;

(v) that the goal is the discovery, by the individual, of what anciently was termed Lapis Philosophicus: that is, wisdom, which implies not only the standard dictionary definition of wisdom – “a balanced personal judgement; having discernment” – but also the ancient sense of (a) having certain knowledge of a pagan, Occult, kind to do with livings beings, human nature, and (b) an understanding of ourselves, of our relation to the world, to Nature, and to the Cosmos beyond.

       In addition, nothing about the 7FW is dogmatic or fixed. What is suggested here – such as various Insight Roles – are guides, and suggested because they have been shown, by experience over decades, to work in respect of practical learning both personal and Occult and thus in respect of enabling the attainment of wisdom. The individual is free to modify and/or evolve such suggestions as have been made.

Distinguishing The O9A

There are several significant features germane to the Order of Nine Angles and which separate the O9A from other past and contemporary manifestations of the Occult in the lands of the West, be those manifestations described or classified by others (or self-described or classified by their adherents) as Left Hand Path, Satanist, Hermetic, Right Hand Path, Pagan, or Sorcerist.

A collection of Order of Nine Angles (O9A, ONA) texts most of which were issued since the publication, in 2015, of the seventh edition of The Complete Guide To The O9A and which collection compliments that practical and theoretical guide to the  seven-fold way of the O9A. As the title indicates, this collection is primarily concerned with the esoteric and ancient hermeticism that underlies the occult philosophy of the O9A.
