An invocation a duke, to Phoenix.
Casting Instructions for ‘The Summoning of Phoenix’
Phoenix is a great Duke and appears at first in the form of the bird Phoenix using a childs voice. Before he will be still ahead of the conjurer, he’ll 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 exceptional poet, obedient and governs twenty legions. Phoenix has to be kept focused on the job at hand and should never be allowed to wander with no circle.
Draw a circle upon the floor and recite the following invocation aloud:
I conjure thee Phoenix, in the names of Baell, Paimon and Zagan and from their virtues and powers I charge thee Phoenix, that thou shalt not depart from my sight, nor yet to alter thy physical shape, that thou art appeared in, nor any power shalt thou have of our bodies or spirits, earthly or ghostly, but to be obedient to me, and to the words of my conjuration, which be written in this book. I conjure thee Phoenix, with thrones, dominations, principats, potestats and virtutes, and by their virtues and powers. I conjure and charge, bind and constrain thee Phoenix, with the words aforesaid, and by their virtues, that thou be obedient unto me, and to come and seem visible unto me, and that in most days, hours, and minutes, wheresoever I be, being called by the virtue of their highest, thou shalt look prepared to look unto me, and also to give me good counsel, to give to me thy melodies and poetry, and in all other matters my will quickly to be fulfilled: I charge thee upon pain of everlasting condemnation, Fiat, fiat, fiat, Amen.
When Phoenix appears, remain quiet and listen but when he should linger long on a single note or phrase, he must be distracted and redirected with a query. After the engagement is complete, dismiss Phoenix with the Dismissal of the Spirit.
