The Rosarie of Qayin Azhaka
Shown here is a magical rosary consecrated to Azha-Qayin, the Ancestral Patron of the Sabbatic Craft Tradition. It was hand-carved by Alogos Dhu’l-qarnen Khidir over the course of two years. Its formation and occult significance is related in ‘The Grimoire of the Golden Toad’.
The white disk-beads are individually fashioned from human femur bone. The quarter-marking ‘eye’ beads are carved from wood: blackthorn, holly, and oak. The quarter-guardian beads, carved in the form of ornate Death’s-heads, are fashioned from stag antler. Each of these skull-beads represents a specific deity in the Sabbatic pantheon. The larger pendant bead is an antler-carved image of Qayin, surmounted by a hag-stone, and appended by a graven human tooth. The side counter beads are carved from lapis lazuli, terminated with antler tips. The additional counter string (for counting 1000’s of mantic repetitions) shows a small wooden bead carved from mistletoe, an image of the Sabbatic deity Trivagantus, and a larger wooden bead carved from mandrake root. The coloured tassels denote the patronage of specific spirit-families. The entire construction of this magical tool embodies the Rosarium of Midnight. By the arrangement, form and juxtaposition of its beads it encrypts a complete grimoire in and of itself. The transmission of its teaching is thus ‘wordless’: the Book of A-logos.
This rosary is specifically made for working with Cain—working within a dual observance and heretical system that does turn Catholic tools to its uses for gnosis and mastery.
I was absolutely blessed to get to see this rosary in person and have Mr. Schulke show it to me. In my understanding, this is the book One: the Golden Toad Grimoire in its physical manifestation via Andrew Chumbley prior to the transcribing of the written book.
I have made pagan prayer beads before from similar kinds of materials. Using natural beads is a very powerful way to connect to the current.
gotta remember to feed my small green friend more regularly to avoid these uncomfortable drought-in-work scenarios
also, I probably need to relocate it to my shrine for Ellis - when I set it up (!!!)

"THE SEVEN HERMETIC PRINCIPLES
"The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these,
understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose
touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open.”—The Kybalion.
The Seven Hermetic Principles, upon which the entire Hermetic Philosophy is based, are as follows:
1. The Principle of Mentalism.
2. The Principle of Correspondence.
3. The Principle of Vibration.
4. The Principle of Polarity.
5. The Principle of Rhythm.
6. The Principle of Cause and Effect.
7. The Principle of Gender.
1. The Principle of Mentalism
"THE ALL IS MIND; The Universe is Mental."—The Kybalion.
2. The Principle of Correspondence
"As above, so below; as below, so above."—The Kybalion.
3. The Principle of Vibration
"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates."—The Kybalion.
4. The Principle of Polarity
"Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”—The Kybalion.
5. The Principle of Rhythm
"Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides;
all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in
everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the
measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”—The Kybalion.
6. The Principle of Cause and Effect
"Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause;
everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”—The Kybalion.
7. The Principle of Gender
"Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine
and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.”—The Kybalion.”
"“Magic” is an evocative word. Most of our reactions to magic are emotional. It is associated with the supernatural, with religion, sorcery, evil, and wonder. It evokes disdain, amusement, anxiety, curiosity, or resonance. It is not a simple word; but it is a word entwined with the the history of our species."
