Goetia Circle - Hebrew Names - A new Mathers and Crowley version

Goetia Circle with Hebrew Names 

A new Mathers and Crowley version

We are at 2018 year and this is my new version for the Mathers and Crowley circle.

For long time people has asked for a version of the Goetia circle presented by S.L. “MacGregor” Mathers and Aleister Crowley.

This is another work of mine entirely done in high resolution vector art and it is not that scanning and enlarging of old images as we see anywhere.

At advanced magician's groups we already knew about some errors even at the original sources, so this took a time for research to check as much as possible to fix the problems.

The only change I made by myself, was adding a serpent drawn at the background, not just the classic simple one people see anywhere, and trying to observe the scale of colors related to the area between the two main circles.

This is the original Mathers version:

Just to remember, S.L. Mathers himself observed:
“…The coiled serpent is only shown in one private codex…”

So he did not suggested any color to the serpent. At A. Crowley edition the same comment is kept.

So what we see around about serpent colors are personal opinions and here I choose mine too.

About the names in the circle.

The names in the circle comes from Agrippa’s Scale of Ten.

Here, from Joseph H. Peterson published at Esotericarchives and his great book, "The Lesser Key of Solomon":

...In the Mathers/Crowley edition the letters around the perimeter of the circle are transcribed into Hebrew letters. 

"In English letters they run thus...

+ Ehyeh Kether Metatron Chaioth Ha-Qadesh Rashith Ha-Galgalim S.P.M (for 'Sphere of the Primum Mobile')

+ Iah Chokmah Ratziel Auphanim Masloth S.S.F. (for 'Sphere of the Fixed Stars,' or S.Z. for 'Sphere of the Zodiac')

+ Iehovah Elohim Binah Tzaphquiel Aralim Shabbathai S. (for 'Sphere') of Saturn

+ El Chesed Tzadquiel Chaschmalim Tzedeq S. Jupiter

+ Elohim Gibor Geburah Kamael Seraphim Madim S. of Mars

+ Iehovah Eloah Va-Daath Tiphereth Raphael Malakim Shemesh S. of the Sun

+ Iehovah Tzabaoth Netzach Haniel Elohim Nogah S. of Venus.

+ Elohim Tzabaoth Hod Michaël Beni Elohim Kokav S. of Mercury

+ Shaddaï El Chai Iesod Gabriel Cherubim Levanah S. of the Moon +"

  • Observe Mathers and Crowley used Ratziel instead of Jophiel at S.S.F. This is the only major change they did.
  • Another change they did was Raphael for the Sphere of the Sun and Michael for Mercury. This is not an error, just both arcangels have both atributions like we found at the Heptameron.

Here a more recent version found anywhere at internet. This have some errors at names and green and red was used for the serpent. For sure some idea related to a personal work.

About the corrections/changes I made at hebrew names. 

Most of the errrors I found was because the available images are low-resolution, even at the books due bad print quality.
With time and internet poor quality scans, such errors increased from copy to copy, including some people "creating" very strange explanations due their laziness for a decent research.

So let's point the differences I have found. The first hebrew word at left is the version I found to be right. Next I point what I found and we can observe the difference and why. I used color red to point the wrong part in my opinion. Some I just point the proper word as the originals are not clear.

At the SPM:

חקדש - Ha-Qadesh. I found some versions using  .חקדוש

At Sphere of Zodiac:

רזיאל - Mathers and Crowley version use Raziel, At the original text they wroteציאל ר  so we see there's a mistake.  יופיאל  - Jophiel was used at the classic version with greek names and I found some hebrew versions using this schema.
  אופנים   - Auphanim. 

At Sphere of Sun:
יהוה  - IHVH, Jehovah. Some versions just miss it. A simple basic error due lack of atention while copying.
 ודעת אלוה - Eloah Va-Daath.

At Sphere of Venus:
הניאל - Haniel.
 נוגה  - Venus. I found versions using נוה  but this is very Ok, not an error.

Observe netzach is writen at different order too.

At Sphere of Mercury:
אלהים  בני     - Beni Elohim.

At Sphere of Moon:
חי  שדי אל  - Shadai-El-Chai. At some versions is wrongly written as שדיאלחאי

כרובים   - Cherubim. At the most recent versions with a color printed circle, we see this as כחבים and is clear that was because the original bad drawing quality without checking the proper name.

The result

Remember, hebrew is writen right to left:

About the Colors Schema

Here S.L. Mathers and Aleister Crowley keep the same text:
"...Colours. - The space between the outer and inner circles, where the serpent is
coiled, with the Hebrew names written along his body, is bright deep yellow. The
square in the centre of the circle, where the word “Master” is written, is filled in with
red. All names and letters are in black. In the Hexagrams the outer triangles where
the letters A, D, O, N, A, I, appear are filled in with bright yellow, the centres, where
the T-shaped crosses are, blue or green. In the Pentagrams outside the circle, the
outer triangles where “Te, tra, gram, ma, ton,” is written, are filled in bright yellow,
and the centres with the T crosses written therein are red.”...

So no green serpent anywhere. To be clear, I never found a decent text explaining why someone made a green serpent. The only I found was copies of previous texts and only God knows what was the source for that. If someone have a decent source to point, please, send me a message with it.


The result of this work is a new high resolution vectorial art draw I made and is available at:

The bigger size in use. Photo by costumer.

For sure, you must add your own effort. Magick results come from your homework, not just miracles without effort.

This is a professional work so I expect for serious users.
So, please, do not ask me for spells, rituals or how to use this work.

Another serious work came from this

In addition to the above, he restored the 10th column Earth/Malkut Names, which are to be written after the Luna Names, of Agrippa's Ten Scale that is missing from the Lemegeton's Goetia manuscripts but should have been there if the author had included the full 10 columns of Agrippa's Scale of the Number Ten from the Three Books of Occult Philosophy instead of just 9 columns.

So this was added after the Luna Names, is as follows::  

The result is fantastic. 
Here what he did adding a lot to my research:

Visit Adam J. Pearson blog for his complete research about: 

Main sources I used to make this version:

Ms Sloane 2731 – Clavicula Solomonis – British Library Manuscript collection
Ms Sloane 3648 – Clavicle of Solomon – British Library Manuscript collection
The Lesser Key of Solomon (Lemegeton) – Joseph Peterson at Esotericarchives.com
The Lesser Key of Solomon (Goetia) – S.L. “MacGregor” Mathers and Aleister Crowley.
Three Books Of Occult Philosophy - Henry Cornelius Agrippa.
Whatever of images of the circle with Hebrew names (with serpent or not) found at internet as possible.
