Signs of the Adeptus Minor Grade (The LVX Signs)
The Signs of the Adeptus Minor Grade are also known as the LVX Signs. These are the Signs of Isis, Apophis, and Osiris. Use the LVX Signs in the Analysis of the Key Word and in Ceremonial Magic, following all Invoking Hexagrams and Invoking Spirit Pentagrams. To perform the LVX Signs correctly, always begin by standing in the position of the Sign of Osiris Slain. Next perform, m sequence, the Sign of the Mourning of Isis, the Sign of Apophis and Typhon, the Sign of Osiris Slain, and the Sign of Osiris Risen.
Very interesting effects may be achieved by performing the LVX signs as a sort of moving meditation coordinating movement, breathing, and visualization. Visualize drawing the Light down through your body from above as you inhale and back up as you exhale. Pause and inhale during the initial Sign of Osiris Slain. Pause and exhale during the “L” Sign. Inhale again during the “V” Sign. Exhale during the “X” Sign. Inhale during the Sign of Osiris Slain, and exhale during the Sign of Osiris Risen.
To perform the “L” Sign, also known as the Sign of the Mourning of Isis, place your right foot facing forward and your left foot a slightly more than a shoulders’ width apart at a right angle, facing left. Raise your right hand straight upward, toward the ceiling, palm facing left. Extend your left arm horizontally toward your left, palm downward, thus forming an “L” with your arms. Turn your head left, rest your chin on your left shoulder, and look along your arm toward your fingertips.
To perform the “V” Sign, or the Sign of Apophis and Typhon, look upward and reach upward with both arms in the form of a “V.”
The Signs of Osiris are two, the Sign of Osiris Slain and the Sign of Osiris Risen. To perform the Sign of Osiris Slain, look up and extend your arms out to the side in the form of a cross, palms forward.
To perform the Sign of Osiris Risen (the X sign), bow your head and cross your arms, right over left, over your chest.
