The Summoning of Phoenix
Casting Instructions for 'The Summoning of Phoenix'
Phoenix is a great Duke and appears at first in the form of the bird Phoenix with a childs voice. Before he will be still before the conjurer, he will sing many sweet melodies. Then the conjurer and companions must beware that he give no ear to the melody, but must bid him take human form. Then will he speak marvellously of all wonderful sciences. He is an excellent poet, obedient and governs twenty legions. Phoenix must be kept focused on the task at hand and should never be allowed to wander without the circle.
Draw a circle upon the ground and recite the following invocation aloud:
"I conjure thee Phoenix, in the names of Baell, Paimon and Zagan and by their virtues and powers I charge thee Phoenix, that thou shalt not depart out of my sight, nor yet to alter thy bodily shape, that thou art appeared in, nor any power shalt thou have of our bodies or souls, earthly or ghostly, but to be obedient to me, and to the words of my conjuration, that be written in this book. I conjure thee Phoenix, by all thrones, dominations, principats, potestats and virtutes, and by their virtues and powers. I conjure and charge, bind and constrain thee Phoenix, by all the words aforesaid, and by their virtues, that thou be obedient unto me, and to come and appear visible unto me, and that in all days, hours, and minutes, wheresoever I be, being called by the virtue of the highest, thou shalt look ready to appear unto me, and to give me good counsel, to give to me thy melodies and poetry, and in all other things my will quickly to be fulfilled: I charge thee upon pain of everlasting condemnation, Fiat, fiat, fiat, Amen".
When Phoenix appears, stay quiet and listen but if he should linger long on one single note or word, he must be distracted and redirected with a question. When the engagement is complete, dismiss Phoenix with the Dismissal of the Spirit.
