The Grade of Theoricus
Next, our initiate moves out of the sphere of Malkuth to the sphere of Yesod- from the Gateway of the Tabernacle to the Greek Kerubim. This grade is associated with the element of Air, the Moon and the astral plain. Whereas in the grade of Zelator, our initiate has dealt with the more tangible, elemental magics, he/she now begins the workings of the astral plain- embarking for the first time on the Paths of the Tree of Life and learning the fundamentals of astral travel. Additionally, the initiate begins to examine the theories behind magical formula. The Theoricus begins to examin their own thought process- making it into a precise tool. More advanced forms of divination are also begun in this grade.
