The Secret of the Dark Mirror


genie-in-mirror

 

Know that the Jinn which mighty Solomon

Did conjure in the Triangle of Art

Were formed in the reflection of his face

For they were aspects of his soul

Each agreeing unto a Quadrant,

A Planet and a metal thereof

Which when burnished did reflect

Even as a Mirror

 

And when thou holdest the lighted tapers

In thine own hands

And thou dost gaze deep into thine own eyes

Know that thou dost perform The Art

In the very manner in which it was truly done.

— from The Book of Astarte, by Frater Aleyin (Thabion)
