The Sun has entered Libra! If it’s your birthday between now and October 23rd, then may I be the first to say: “Happy birthday, Libra!”
You now have the opportunity to celebrate your birthday – or get a present for a Libra in your life, from my new Etsy shop. This features the sigil, taken from the Golden Dawn’s rose-cross lamen, of the Angel of this month’s astrological sign (in this case Libra), in the correct Zodiacal colours.

Q. Can 15-year-olds join the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn?
A. (by Alex Sumner):
(A2A) No – for two reasons:
1. When you are accepted as a member, you are in effect making a contract to abide by the by-laws of the organisation and to stay regular with your subs. Whilst Minors can enter into contracts, they are voidable at will – so no organisation is going to risk a 15-year old flake out on them.
2. Just about every Golden Dawn temple I know either meets on licensed premises or adjourns to one after a hard day’s ritual, so they would not want someone who’s under-age to tag along with them and risk them being refused entry. 🙂
Hegemon, Hierophant and Hiereus!
My advice is simply to keep studying the available Golden Dawn materials for now, such as The Golden Dawn or Self Initiation into the Golden Dawn, and if you are still interested in three years time, apply to join after your 18th birthday.
The Golden Dawn
Gold the metal of the sun, associated with Tiphereth. Dawn the place where the sun rises.
The very name suggests that everything about it is to do with Tiphereth, that place of balance and equilibrium within your soul. Hence, anything which does not aim at finding Tiphereth, whether this be expressed in terms of Christ, Krishna, Osiris, or “the dying and resurrected god,” cannot really be said to be authentic Golden Dawn.
I say all this because recently I’ve encountered a lot of GD types engaging in a lot of behaviour which does not seem to lead themselves towards Tiphereth – nor the others with whom they come into contact.
