The squares in “The book of the sacred magick of Abramelin the mage” have been translated from Hebrew into several different languages. I do not think that such magick will work.
I think that we need to write the squares in Hebrew, because each Hebrew letter is equal to a number. For example, the picture above is actually the reshaped square number 2 (chapter 16/for gold money/ISBN-13: 978-0-486-23211-9/ISBN-10: 0-486-23211-5).
I had to look up the description of the square first: CESEP means silver. Then I translated the word “silver” into Jiddish and ended up with כסף. This word means “silver” in Jiddish and “of money” in Hebrew.
Moreover, the spirits Astaroth and Ariton have to be called when doing this money spell. Strangely, there are no seals described in this book, but the seals of the spirits are of great importance.
I think that the mages of the past did not want to reveal their secrets, and it is therefore that the squares were given, but with not enough information (on purpose). The original square from the book looks like this:
We can form the square in Hebrew too, but each of the two sides of the square will contain only three letters then.
The word CESEP does not carry any meaning at all. Only those who know Hebrew or Jiddish may guess that CESEP in Latin or English is actually כסף.
Moreover, one should remember, that Hebrew words are written from right to left. Of course, you see by now, that these squares have been equalled to rubbish on purpose.
Astaroth should be called during a Friday, and also during the astrological hour of Venus. The seal of Astaroth should be green if you use paper.
If you prefer a metal seal, then the seal should be made of copper. I am still hunting for the seal of Ariton and one day I will find it.
Some people do magick with the Abramelin squares and they say that their magick works.
I simply cannot understand how an Abramelin square can be used in a ritual and also produce results. The thing is: I do not understand the meaning of the words in the square.
