The Magic Circle (Part 2)

Post in English / Post en Anglais

So continuing my research, i've found somes importants explanation about The Magic Circle..

Thanx to
Lithargoel for unvaluable work.

אהיה eheie -- "I am" or "I will be" ; Ehyeh asher ehyeh was the "I am
that I am" response that Moses received when he asked God his name.

כתר kether -- First sephirah, meaning "Crown" ; Divine Plan / Creator /
Infinite Light (Supreme / Total Consciousness)

היות haioth -- "living creatures"; I believe these are a class of created
beings around God's throne

חקדש hqedesh -- "holy" ; describing the haioth as an adjective

מטטרון metatron -- supposedly the highest of all angels, and the
celestial scribe that writes the deeds of Israel, according to Rabbinic

ראשית reshith -- means "beginning, germ, outset, source, start" ; the
'Primum' of 'Primum Mobile'

הגלגלים hagalgalim -- I think it means "wheels" from what I can find.
Suggests a link to the vision of the throne in Ezekiel, and the close
proximity to God of these names.

יופיאל jophiel /  רזיאלraziel -- I have a dilemma here. The picture of
the Circle in Sloane 2731 and the prayers has Jophiel in English, in
Crowley's he has put in Raziel. Raziel is a member of the Ophanim class
of beings, Jophiel is not. If this is a Crowley correction, it makes
sense to do this, but I wonder if Jophiel is there for a reason. Jophiel
is a companion to Metatron and a powerful chief of the Cherubim. If
anyone can clear this up for me, I'd appreciate it. At any rate, I've
included both names here.
