Full Moon Knight
Moon Knight, the Fist of Konshu, Egyptian God of the Moon, has just returned from final Consecration beneath the Full Moon in Loki Park to take his place on my Altar with Thoth and Loki. This figure was the cheapest decent one I could find, still way overpriced, but I paid it. Crowley said (& I paraphrase) “When the Magickian goes to market, he must buy the black egg—or whatever it is his Spell truly requires—without haggling.” Then Amazon would not deliver my chosen figure to Grande Prairie, Alberta. So, I had it sent to Nashville, TN, knowing I'd be there in time to intercept the package. It’s a 12-hour day of flying from our small prairie town to the great little condo we got in Antioch, by the Nashville airport, back when it was a buyer’s market.
Whilst in Nashville, Tennessee, on August 21 '17, I had the opportunity to Consecrate my Moon Knight figure under a Full Path of Totality Solar Eclipse. I made up a ceremony and some words--DIY Magick is always the best.
Before leaving Nashville to travel thousands of miles back North, I packed Moon Knight carefully in my battered suitcase. When I got back here to the Temple of Thoth-Loki North, I placed him on my Altar with some words of Power, knocks, knells, and incense, and waited patiently for tonight, when the Moon was brightest.
Again I packed Moon Knight carefully away in a tote bag, along with my Kindle, some Moon-Kissed Holy Water, a battery-operated tealight candle, my Magick Wand, and some plain old water for me to just plain drink; Conjuring is thirsty work.
The Moon, to my human eye, seemed immense and of a vivid orange colour. Sadly, my Kindle camera could not pick up the tint or the radiance, even in Loki Park, away from the streetlights. But I was successful in my plan to use the Park's picnic table (which I also think of as The Main Stage) as an Outdoor Altar.
I set up Moon Knight, a battery-operated tealight, and got my Holy Water and Wand ready. The Ceremonial Words I made up on the spot, asking the glorious Moon to bathe Moon Knight in its effervescent rays, bragging that this here Holy Figure had already been Dedicated to THOTH - LOKI under the corona of a sure-enough Total Solar Eclipse, and that I now expected it to be DAMNED WELL GOOD & CONSECRATED.
To seal the deal, as I uttered Hebrew God-Names of Power, I sprinkled the figure of Moon Knight nine times (9 is the number of the Moon) with Moon-Kissed Water. (You make Moon-Kissed Holy Water by taking a container of regular water outside under a Full Moon and asking that it be blessed in the name of your Deity of Choice. This only works if you have genuine Intent, of course.)
I packed everything back up, and my Temple is now guarded by the MOON KNIGHT, Protector of Night Travelers, in all his Big-Time Consecrated Glory. In His honour, I lit the slowly colour-changing tealight candles on my Altar, drank a bit of honeyed wine (aka Drambuie as we are out of Mead), and burned sweet incense. Welcome home, MOON KNIGHT, FIST OF KHONSHU!
