The structure of the LBRP, known as a Banishing Ritual, and the Middle Pillar, are originally

Mercurial, self propelled Road Openings, and linked to the Horned-man of the cross roads,
The Devil, but the Devil in the TRUE European Witchcraft, as meaning virile, vigorous, wild,
and powerful. Devil until Christianity, like the word demon, had ZERO evil connotations.
Another interesting aside to note, on the tree of life, we see the sphere of Venus, opposite
the sphere of Mercury (the horned devil, in his original form, sexual, wild, full of energy,
sorcerous, and a trickster). The Devil (Mercury), and the Dame (Venus), are the Father, and
Mother of the European Witch cults. Mercury is a tawny red/orange, as is the devil, the
beams of Mars which is over Mercury, plays a HUGE role is this. That is something from the
TRUE witchcraft mysteries.
What is a road opening?
As we know, the astral world is the blue print, or final edit, before becoming
manifest/physical. There are a great deal of opportunities, resources, and other energies that
for a multitude of reasons become blocked from connecting with us. They circulate around
us, and come in as bits and pieces, or even corrupted versions of what they should have
been. This can be the result of psychic sludge, a chaotic lifestyle, evil magic, harmful spirits,
etc. If it comes to down to this, your roads are blocked and forward motion is hindered.
Another way of looking at this is doors. Strangely, Mercury, and Eshu, Lucero, Legba, Exu,
etc, are all often called the, key holders to human destiny, and they can unlock doors for
you. The inverse is also true, they can shut doors on you, or close your roads. Its common in
Palo Mayombe, Voudu, and Quimbanda, to preform malefic rites to close the roads, or doors
of your enemies. Its also protection magic, to close the roads, and doors on those trying to
harm you.
The structure of the Golden Dawn LBRP, and the calling of directional based Archangels, and
drawing banishing pentagrams is in effect to close your roads from being transverses by
malignant spirits. The problem is the Archangels where called to stand watch (They will do
NOTHING else, unless instructed too, as they are ARCHONS), and the doors/.roads around the
magician are closed. You in effect, safe, but in an astral prison of your own make.
The Planetary tradition calls upon the forces of the four winds. This is important distinction
because of the functions they serve. The four winds move, and wear heralds for Mercury.
Unlike the Golden Dawn ritual structure where you are in reality assuming the God from of
Jehovah, in this Planetary tradition, you are assuming the God form of Mercury. The four
winds CLEARED THE PATH FOR MERCURY'S SWIFT MOVEMENT. In effect, opened/cleared his
(now yours) roads. Mercury is the sign post (Transmitting messages through signs, and can
be a receiver by having signs hung on them.... REALLY meditate on that, and it's connection
to the Middle Pillar Ritual) in the middle of the crossroads. You are calling forth the four
aligned powerful spirits which will make Mercury's (your) travel, commerce, communication,
learning, tradings, etc, etc, easier.
The old saying, All roads lead to Rome, had deep, and magical implications, by virtue of
Mercury.
Where the LBRP, takes care of, horizontal, the Middle Pillar Ritual, begins the Mercurial
exercise of, vertical movement (body expansion, and in the tradition Planetary sphere/body
visitation). This also linked the magician with the North Star, or Pole-Star, which in a
hidden mystery makes sure your astral body will never get lost, and can navigate
(travel/Mercury), the astral realm, or starry sea.
Now, this leads us to the topic of, The Merger. Behold, a true work of Mercurial inspiration.
A multi-tiered/layered crossroad, all originating off the same center pole (you/Mercury), for
hyper dimensional maneuverability. When you are drawing those Planetary master symbols

around your own Planetary bodies, on each planetary realm, you are opening THEIR roads
also. So, in other words, your are placing the keys around them, that they (YOU) might also
have the roads, or doors, open on that planetary realm, and receive all the
blocked/hampered energies that pertain to that particular planetary sphere, which would
flow through that particular planetary body, and then down to your physical manifestation.

insane in 3 different ways and break like a fucking porcelain doll under the
