Khemetic Chess (aka Hypermodern Magick) is a stand-alone book that
outlines my theory of magick, and sheds light on ‘active divinatory’
Enochian Chess. Exploring the 64 (8×8) paradigm, it looks at both
historical and recent Enochian Chess variants. Aleister Crowley features
prominently; and I look at strong Khemetic strands in Thelema such as
the Crowning of Horus. It also encompasses Tantra, and Tsakli pieces
(moveable shrines) for “No Self” Enochian Chess.

This book explains how 88 Ptolemaic emblemata gave birth to familiar
Christianised tarot designs. These 88 divide into four groups of 22
Atous, and these combine with the Minor Arcanaii of the Four Winds, 56
divination cards for each of the 4 Elements or Chessboards. Four packs
of 78 “Tarot of the Four Worlds.”

Khem, ancient Egypt, seems to be the fount of many magickal practices
and survivals in diverse cultures. I trace some Khemetic influences on
Tibetan Bonpo and Hinduism. Essential components and structure from
Kabbalah also seem to begin with the Khemetic game of Zenet, and the
Hymn to the Ten Bau of Amen-Ra rather than with such texts as Sepher
Yetzirah and Zohar of the Late Medieval Period. Horus, Isis and the
other Great Ones of Khem work better under governance of the
Tetragrammaton (word with four letters) “AMEN” rather than under the
arguably anti-Kemetic, Tetragrammaton YHVH.

Hypermodern Magick explains, continues and augments innovations that
began with the literary modernist and psychological experimenter, WB
Yeats and continued with political surrealist, Ithell Colquhoun, and Don
Kraig (Modern Magick).

This is the first in a trio of books that together form The Complete Enochian Chess. Enochian Chess in part comes from the Elizabethan system of Enochian Magic originated by the Court Astrologer, Dr John Dee. It was developed into its current form in Victorian times by SL MacGregor Mathers and William Wynn Westcott. This book includes a complete facsimile and commentary of Moina Mathers’s Alpha et Omega Enochian Chess papers together with a brief history of the game, notes on play and strategy, and instructions for Active divinatory methods utilised by this system. Notes and illustrations by Ithell Colquhoun (some previously unpublished) help explain this advanced and complete system of magick in its own right.

Originally it was only taught to Golden Dawn initiates who had risen to the rank of Zelator Adeptus Minor, and required a comprehensive knowledge of Tarot, Geomancy, Kabbalah, various magical formulae, the symbolism of the Candidate, the Ceremony of the Neophyte Grade, working knowledge of the art of Invocation and Banishing, Pentagram and Hexagram rituals, formation of Telesmatic Images, Sigils, and knowledge of the Enochian Tablets. Enochian Chess subsumes other Passive systems of divination such as tarot and astrology, and has powerful prophetic properties.

– The Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea (MOAA) –

The Magical Order of the Aurora Aurea (MOAA) is a modern expression of the Golden Dawn tradition which was founded by Nick Farrell and his wife, Paola.

It is an international Order with its headquarters in Rome and Temples forming in Ireland, England, Slovenia and South Africa. We intend to open temples all over the world.

Although we are a traditional secret society we operate two public programmes. The first is the Correspondence Course which places its teachings in the hands of the people who would not be able to join a working magical temple. The second is its Antica which are public rituals and workshops organised by its initiates.
