Magical Motto

A Magical Motto is in the Western esoteric tradition, a magical name taken upon Initiation into a secret society or lodge. The magical motto usually expresses the initiate’s spiritual goal and persona and is written in any language other than the initiate’s own. This distinguishes the magical motto from the affairs and concerns of everyday life.

Latin is the most common language used for magical mottos, followed by Hebrew. The magical mottos of some of the prominent members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn are:



  • Cicero, Chic, and Sandra Tabatha Cicero. The Essential Golden Dawn. St. Paul, Minn.: Llewellyn Publications, 2004.
