" Turn off the Sun. Pull the Stars from the Sky.
The more I give to you the more I die. "

I am here to discuss the benefits of the GBRH, often overlooked in favour of the invoking ritual.
I feel it is a quite useful and necessary ritual in light of astrological correspondences and retrogrades, softening the blow of unfortunate astrological conjunctions and movements through the heavens.
No longer limited to invoke what sometimes may be a tainted energy the GBRH allows you to refute or ward off like the Hindu Navagraha Yantra but with more precision.
It is very much like a cureative medicine. Don't like the Mercury retrograde? Banish Mercury. Don't like what a particular planet indicates in your horoscope? Banish it. You can always invoke again later.
I feel Crowley's Star Sapphire forgets the importance and versatility of this despite my liking it on its own. The Rite of the Hexagram is for more than invoking and I'm glad for it.
What say you on this topic?
