Glyph of Mercurius Consciousness
« on: November 04, 2018, 11:30:05 pm »
The Symbol most associated with the Herald of Dawn is the Glyph of Mercurius
Consciousness. It is a modified symbol of Mercury to include important alchemical
devices pertinent to our spiritual transcension.

The horns represent the Earthly manifestation through Belial, symbolic of the direction
North and the element Earth. Aspects of this element include all of the physical
sensations along with the desire for material gain, for the earth is filled with precious
metals and gems. We see the endless cycle of death and rebirth within this element as
the earth springs forth life from decaying matter again and again. This self-sufficiency is
a key to mastering one's self, for as Belial's name suggests, the adept is "without a
master".

The circle is that of the Eternal Ouroboros Serpent, it represents our Subjective
Universe thus it is Sol as Satan, the Will, and the Black Flame. The circle as Ouroboros,
the serpent devouring its tail is also a symbol of this cycle. The Black Adept, like the
Ouroboros, as the snake (higher self), devours his own tail (lower self) to emerge anew.
In addition, the Circle is symbolic of the Sun as Satan and his Ka the Black Flame.
Through the gift of the Black Flame, our true Will is known to us and the possibilities of
what we might accomplish both here in the OU and SU is without end.

Inside of the Circle is the Word of an Aeon, it is the Objective Universe, its Element is
Air and represents Luciferian Gnosis. Through Mercurius Consciousness we are able to
achieve Luciferian gnosis. Lucifer corresponds to the direction East and the element Air.
Indeed the "Prince of the Power of Air" and "light bearer". Lucifer being the Aeon shines
a light that man may know he is not just an animal but he IS as a god.

The figure eight is created using the Caduceus of Hermes. The Caduceus is symbolic
ofMercuræn Consciousness and the workings of Mercury. Both the 8 and the triangle
concern communication, the sciences and art. Mercuræn Consciousness is obtained
through work in these areas by way of the Higher Self. In addition, the 8 symbolizes
spiritual alchemy in which the adept destroys the lower self to be reborn as the higher
self, like the Phoenix rising from the ashes

The Trident represents LVYthN the Unconscious Mind, the Realm of Emotions and
Imagination. "Leviathan is the absolute, man, and if thou would presume to realize what
neither heaven nor hell may affect, know that when thou behold the presence of
Leviathan, thy end hath been attained. Only through the obliteration of the Universe that
is may man seal his mastery of the Black Flame, for only thus may he know that he is
not subject to a greater Will." (Diabolicon).

Tried to re-draw it to see how it feels with less rainbow... is it supposed to be this hard to even approximate a feeling of vertical balance/proportion? I had to skew the top ring way down and the bottom trident way up to even slightly diminish the huge-skulled alien-with-spiky-little-feet silhouette.

Are the caduceus snakes supposed to describe one figure 8, or two? Your words indicate the former but your image, the latter, so I went off the words for this draft.

Is the trident's fork supposed to echo the lower crossing line in the sigil of Mercury? If so, I fear I may still have it too small.

Nice reproduction!

The 8 is more like the imagery of Infinity, it can take on the shape of 8 or an indefinite 8 shape

It does to some extent, but really has more to with Leviathan and a phurba thingy.

A few other of our Glyphs:
 [ Invalid Attachment ]

...Did you intend for that to be the same image 5 times over?

I find that the forum behaves more reliably when I upload images to either imgur or the OS gallery (http://orderoftheserpent.org/forum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=add) then include them by link, rather than uploading as attachments.

Admin Note: There were attachment problems which resulted in multiple instances of the same image, so I modified this post for that reason. -Onyx
