The BABALON WORKING was a series of magic ceremonies or rituals performed from January to March, 1946 by author, pioneer rocket-fuel scientist, and occultist Jack Parsons and Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard . This ritual was essentially designed to manifest an individual incarnation of the archetypal divine feminine called Babalon
Babalon
. The project was based on the ideas of Aleister Crowley
Aleister Crowley
, and his description of a similar project in his 1917 novel Moonchild .

THE BABALON WORKING RITUALS

When Parsons declared that the first of the series of rituals was complete and successful, he almost immediately met Marjorie Cameron
Marjorie Cameron
in his own home, and regarded her as the elemental that he and Hubbard had called through the ritual. Soon Parsons began the next stage of the series, an attempt to conceive a child through sexual magick workings. Although no child was conceived, this did not affect the result of the ritual to that point. Parsons and Cameron, who Parsons now regarded as the Scarlet Woman - Babalon
Babalon
- called forth by the ritual, soon married.

The rituals performed drew largely upon rituals and sex magic described by English author and occult teacher Aleister Crowley
Aleister Crowley
. Crowley was in correspondence with Parsons during the course of the Babalon
Babalon
Working, and warned Parsons of his potential overreactions to the magick he was performing, while simultaneously deriding Parsons' work to others.

THE BOOK OF BABALON, LIBER 49

A brief text entitled The Book of Babalon, or Liber 49, was written by Jack Parsons as a transmission from the goddess or force called Babalon
Babalon
received by him during the Babalon
Babalon
Working. Parsons claimed that Liber 49 constituted a fourth chapter of Crowley's Liber AL Vel Legis ( The Book of the Law ), the holy text of Thelema
Thelema
.
