Order of the Temple of Astartate


We are probably the oldest continually operating magickal lodge in America. We got started back in 1969, got ourselves incorporated in 1971, and began performing Canaanite Seasonal Ceremonies on the Solstices and Equinoxes back in 1974. Our specialty is Solomonic Ritual Magick-- we are the folks who summon spirits to visible appearance in the dark mirror. We also have a journal, The Seventh Ray, which was something of an 'underground classic' back in the 70's. Check it out! Our Headquarters(O.T.A. #3) for the Church and the Order is here in Silverado, California.

The Church sponsors the Ordo Templi Astartes (O.T.A.) which is an initiatory order working three degrees of the ancient 'Crata Repoa' Tradition in our fully equipped Hermetic Temples. We are compatible with the Golden Dawn and the Ordo Templi Orientis Traditions.
