Wednesday 8th September
In the temple in the sky.
We decided to call OPNA from the Earth of Earth subangle of the Revised Great Table , following on from our previous work in calling Axir from the same location. Once again, we meet in the temple in the sky, some 15 floors above the earth. The hellhound guards the portal, although he seems a little more friendly this week – perhaps I’m simply less shocked at his hellhound-ness (having never really worked with a hellhound as guard before).
After last weeks session we had decided to go back to our respective hearths and try to assess what sort of images or visions had occurred to those not operating or scrying directly. We brought our notes on these to this meeting and reviewed them, with a general sense of agreement, albeit rough in outline, as to the nature of the images – a pearl seemed to be central to this, or mother-of-pearl perhaps.
A is scrying. I am operating. A cauldron of tea is brewed and we chat as we drink this, then clear and open the space using our usual practice of temple opening. The scryer has brought their own ring and lamen and we’re using my table, sigillums and mirror.
What is your nature? Falling through things, levitation, balance, gaps between buildings … coiling dragon.
What is your colour? Red and green.
What is you sound (musical note)? High.
How do you feel to the human touch? Scales, like a solid.
What do you taste like? (please repeat)…barely there, absence of taste, the tongue dry (they are amused about this).
How do you smell? Vapours, like from the sulphur, the bubbling pools in Iceland.
How do I express you through emotions? Single mindedness, a like an idea free falling through the consciousness to its conclusion, breaking through others in the air, heavier than that.
In what form of images and ideas are you most revealed? Long dragon, like a Chinese dragon, the front will move, takes a while for the rest of the body to catch up as it moves through these buildings like flats, large rectangular buildings, it twirls around them and up and has a kind of grin and eyes and it is the … it has a humour or a … it has a law of its own.
When are you most manifest in my daily life? When you need something, when you accept and you innovate to get this solidity to you to get to a place of maybe balance maybe stable, another platform.
Can you tell us something about Draco? (very slowly…) Is another larger creature of of a different order a different class more feathered creature claws more red and gold like a bird.
Can you tell us anything we need to know, anything for next time we meet? … (scryer: nothing coming, seems to just be spiraling in a circle, circling, it’s as if it’s attention is not quite there).
Operator thanks and closes.
Debrief and review.
Next operation in 3 weeks: Morrigan to scry, Jen to operate; location – basement temple space.
