The Gnostic Church of L.V.X.

Equinox Rite


Password – Divinatory Rite held in private by the Clergy with the Council of Elders leading (in the Sping: at sunrise; in the  Autumn: at sunset) and then communicated to the community as a communication received from the Secret Chiefs and  Interpreted for those gathered as all are assembled in such place as the public forum is consecrated. A grand pomp and circumstance may precede this if the temple of the Church is in a seperate place from the public soap box.

The divination is made after the Invocation of Horus within the premises of the Temple and by the Senior and Most  Exalted representative of the Clergy. The others are gathered around as witnesses and will celebrate the successful  drawing of the Semestral Word with the collective recitation of the Adorations found in Liber 963

For the Vernal Equinox, the Maypole celebration is then provided for the Children of the community (with the Maypole  remaining a permanent fixture in the public square) and a lavish breakfast is shared by all wherein all the children are celebrated and one of talent and promise is singled out for special honors.

For the Autumnal Equinox, the elderly members of the community take down the maypole and ceremonially escort it back  to the church for storage until Spring. There, a dinner is held in their honor and one is singled out and honored for his or her life’s accomplishments.
