The Magical Golden Dawn (M.·.G.·.D.·.) is an initiatic order descended from the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn established in 1888. The Order is a non-denominational spiritual order and aspirants are encouraged to use their own spiritual path as part of their rituals and meditations.
The history and mission of the M.·.G.·.D.·.
The Magical Order teaches candidates how to contact and work with both their Guardian Angels and Spirit Guides through one Candidate Degree and a series of four Elemental Grades. The first initiation is an a Candidate and it is called the 0 = 0 grade. You will also have the opportunity to learn the Hermetic version of this 0 = 0 grade which is called the Neophyte Grade.
There is no charge for initiation into the 0 = 0 Grade as a Candidate. After completing this initiation, Candidates are invited to join M.·.G.·.D.·. and become a Seeker for a US $65.00 one-time fee. Membership includes the teaching materials and initiations into both the Magical and Hermetic traditions of the Golden Dawn.
The Order confers initiations for the Four Elemental Degrees of 1 = 10, 2 = 9, 3 = 8, and 4 = 7. Members who attain the rank of 2= 9 will be taught and empowered to start and run local study groups. Members who attain the rank of 4 = 7 will be taught how to start and maintain a local Temple and will be granted a Charter to do so.
The four Elemental Grades contain the same teachings as the Esoteric, Hermetic and Holy Orders of the Golden Dawn with these exceptions:
The first ritual taught by the Magical Golden Dawn is Circulating the Light and the seventh is the Sphere of Protection. These powerful rituals are available to the public free of charge and with no strings attached.
The first ritual taught by the Order
The Magical Golden Dawn is open to all adults eighteen years of age or older regardless of education, religion, creed, color, race, sexual orientation, sex, health or physical disability. The Order does not "blackball" any person desiring to improve him or herself through the rituals of magic. The Order does not require subservience to any "Master" other than the candidate's own Higher Self and the Divine. The Order does require you to take an oath of secrecy regarding all secret matters communicated to you as such. All other things are not secret and may be shared with anybody.

Historically, the equinoxes have been important times for rituals of all kinds. Several organizations claim to have measured higher levels of cosmic energies during these times. The original Esoteric Golden Dawn encouraged members to perform equinox rituals for their own spiritual growth. The Magical Golden Dawn encourages our members to adopt a similar ritual of their own creation for both the equinoxes and solstices. To that end, we present here a ritual for a single magician. Please feel free to modify this ritual for yourself or a group of magicians.
