New Orleans Crossroads Council
NEW ORLEANS SEPHIROTIC VOODOO 11* BOARD MEETING
Tuesday 18th Jan 2000
Alobar, Loki, Alex, Aloas, Orryelle
Minutes of the Meeting
(I decided to go for a formal approach to make
Chelodonia think about the doghairs on her suit some
Minutes? What about seconds? More, more... we want
more chili pepper rum, more acid, more gunga pipes, cigars,
chocolate, coffee, magick, mirth, madness..
Actually personally I want more sleep right now but
that can wait til after breakfast and I get on the
plane. 2 flights to Mexico city, a bus to Villahermosa
and I won't have to *fully* awake ('Zombies seen in
transit from New Orleans to Palenque') til we (Aloas
and I) get to the Temple of the Jaguar to take some
Salvia Divinorum during the eclipse and slip through the
cracks between the worlds (choruses between the
multiverses) ... see you all thereabouts or
What a night we just had, each invoking the Voodoo
deities corresponding with our HML 11-Star Rite Sephira and Trumps according to the correspondences in Lu's deck, drawing multiple versions of
the cards from an array of assembled decks (4; or 5 if
you count the tiny version of Rider-Waite ones we dipped in the
brew and ate) and constructing a large Crossroads veve
with them after ritually brewing the recommended
sacrifices for the corresponding loa together and
passing the sacrament around...
The centre of the veve was on a magic mirror, we
formed a human chakra-chanting pentagram, and Alex
showed us later the diagram of all this he had drawn a
few nights earlier...!
As I am about to depart Loki has promised to supply
the Maps and Details soon... (see below)
Then we went out to the backyard, turned on the
fountain and Alobar, Aloas and I did Order ov ChAos versions of the
Horus-Maat Lodge Initiation rite for Alex and Loki.
Then I unexpectedly became posessed by Masa La Flambeau -this was
Alobar's invoked deity for Yesod, but I guess they all
got mixed up in the brew!- and reflected everyone's
invoked deities back at them in sardum dna hceeps
esrever. Of course when I got to Alobar's Yesodic
mirror Masa La Flambeau bounced back and forth between the two mirrors for
quite some time before forwarding itself to round two.
Performing the backwards dancing of loa-calling I
realized why voodoo resonates with me so well...
Perhaps my invocations of the magick mirror spirits
last night went back in timemit and that's why I got
into mirrormagick already... ?
Anyway, see you all in the cracks...

Physical Layout of Crossroads.
Below is the physical layout of the crossroads we opened in the rite
reported by Orryelle. There was a profound absence of dog hair noted,
although the cats were quite drawn to the event. Eris (one of the
hung out for most of the rite intently watching the center of the
Notes are being compiled on the details of the rite itself, but this

Tribe Deck (CT), Loki's Celtic Deck (CD), and Alobar's copy of the Nu Orleans VooDoo Tarot (no
