Earth Implements

(None of these Categories are concrete, if they help with navigation or location of particular information, then they will have fulfilled their purpose. Such is the fate of Linearity in a Wholistic Cosmos.)


Disc - When the term Disc is used in reference to a Magickal Implement, Sacred Object, Ceremonial Tool and/or Focus it generally refers to a practitionor's Ceremonial Disc used to represent the component of Physical Manifestation and Stability in Workings and to help focus or direct the flow of the Energy created. In most Traditions the Disc is considered to correspond to the Elemental Earth Energies. The design of a Disc is not as specific as that of a Paten, Pantacle, Panticle and so forth, they may include Mandalas of various sorts or totally asymmetrical designs and/or writings. Discs normally are specifically made for general or particular Magickal Working, and/or consecrated to the same.

Pantacle - When the term Pantacle [in Aleister Crowley's 777 Tables of Correspondences (sometimes says Pentacle but may be intended as Pantacle, key number 32bis] is used in reference to a Magickal Implement, Sacred Object, Ceremonial Tool and/or Focus it generally refers to a practitionor's Ceremonial Pantacle which is usually a Disc with symbols carved or embedded into it used to represent the component of Physical Manifestation, Stability, Protection and Intent in Workings and to help focus or direct the flow of the Energy created. In most Traditions the Pantacle is considered to generally correspond to Earth Energies. Pantacles differ from Patens in that they usually are based on a Pentagram design (or some other Star type, perhaps different number of points) overall. Pantacles normally are specifically made for general or particular Magickal Working, and/or consecrated to the same.

Panticle - When the term Panticle [in Aleister Crowley's 777 Tables of Correspondences (sometimes says Pentacle but may be intended as Pantacle, key number 32bis] is used in reference to a Magickal Implement, Sacred Object, Ceremonial Tool and/or Focus it generally refers to a practitionor's Ceremonial Panticle which is usually a Disc with symbols carved or embedded into it used to represent the component of Physical Manifestation, Stability, Protection and Intent in Workings and to help focus or direct the flow of the Energy created. In most Traditions the Pantacle is considered to generally correspond to Earth Energies. Pantacles differ from Patens in that they usually are based on a Pentagram design (or some other Star type, perhaps different number of points) overall. Panticles differ from Pantacles in that they normally are inscribed in a Circle upon the Disc itself. Panticles normally are specifically made for general or particular Magickal Working, and/or consecrated to the same.

Paten - When the term Paten is used in reference to a Magickal Implement, Sacred Object, Ceremonial Tool and/or Focus it generally refers to a practitionor's Ceremonial Paten which is usually a Disc with symbols carved or embedded into it used to represent the component of Physical Manifestation, Stability, Protection and Intent in Workings and to help focus or direct the flow of the Energy created. In most Traditions the Paten is considered to generally correspond to Earth Energies. They normally are specifically made for general or particular Magickal Working, and/or consecrated to the same.
