The Elemental Hierarchies

The Astral Government

This list of the elemental hierarchies is a suggestion by Trowa Barton (a regular in the chat room). The suggestion was made simply out of the fact that I sometimes find myself talking about astral politics, and that most the time nobody else in the chat room knows what I mean or who I’m referring to. Therein, this is not only a guide that the aspiring summoner should find useful, but a guide to understand some of the things I may talk about in future articles, in the chat room, in my classes, or on the forums. If you ever hear me mention a weird name, you can probably find it here. This article may be useful in practical magic for a few of you, but for the majority of you, it will simply serve as a quick-and-easy reference guide when/if needed.

The lists herein provide the primary spirits, or orders of spirits, involved within each element in order from most control over that element to least control. It is important to remember that they are not listed here in order from most powerful to least powerful, only from most influential over the element to least influential over the element. When two or more spirits are listed on the same line, it means that they are equal in influence over that element. While the spirits are listed from most influential to least, the Orders of Elements themselves are not in any particular order. But first, a pronunciation key:

The Vowels:

A = Ah
E = Ay (as in hey, or obey)
I = ee (as in key, or "me")
O = oh (as in toe)
U = oo (as in pool)

Miscellaneous notes on Letters:

- C is always a hard sound, as K is in "kite."
- G is always a hard G sound, never a soft "J" sound
- Q always sounds like the "K" in "Kite."
- Y is either "ee" or "ay." However, it is commonly "ee"
- J makes a soft "Sh" sound.

Ai = Ah-EE
Ao = Ah-OH
Oi = Oh-EE
Qu = Koo, not Kyoo

Example: Thahaaothahe = Thah-ha-ah-OH-tha-hay

Comments on the ranks of the orders

Concerning Assiah and Briah - Assiah and Briah are two of the four Kabbalistic worlds, which are:

Atziluth: The Archetypal World or Divine World
Briah: Creative World or World of Thrones
Yetsirah: Formative World
Assiah: Manifest World

Concerning the Qliphoth - In Kabalistic tradition, the Qliphoth is the inverted, “evil” tree of life, in which the fruit of kether is in the place of malkuth, signifying imbalance in natural order. The existence of the Qelipoth due to fractured emanation of the sefira in the beginning of creation is the reason that evil has room to exist.

Concerning the Geomantic Intelligences - These are the spirits consulted when dealing with the art of geomancy in order to get a precise reading in the desired elemental work field.

Let it be known that this list is subjective to Judeo-Christian, Persian, and Chaldean paradigm. Though it may say that Seraph is of fire, and therefore of the south, he can also be called from any of the other four cardinal directions, and so it is with all the spirits previously mentioned with the exception of the elemental kings and emperors, who are assigned to specific towers which reside astrally in what we would parallel as the four cardinal directions.  Because of their assignment to their specific tower, they can only be successfully invoked from the direction in which that tower lays.
