One of the ongoing problems facing students of the Golden Dawn tradition is a lack of functional lodges. Often a student is forced to be a long distance member of a group or go the route of self-initiation due to the absence of a lodge in their area. There remains another option, and that is to create their own lodge to study the mysteries of the Golden Dawn tradition.
Part of Bast Temple's June OFM (Open Full Moon ritual) series, this Golden Dawn inspired Wiccan ritual combines the idea of magical images (astrological magical talisman images) with the symbolism of the Wiccan Wheel of the Year (eight Sabbats). This ritual was first performed in June 2013 at a Hearthstone Community Church's Open Full Moon ritual in Denver, Colorado.
