so its halve of the triangle points down, creating a paralellogram.
Turn the left hand, creating a downwards pointing triangle. Move it

triangle on your forehead.)

I have performed this ritual in front of a lovecraftesque monument and
on a empty hilltop. I prefer to have it done on a starlit night,
preferably a Sabbath. It is also nice if it is cold, suggesting the
emptyness of the Void (I have noticed a fall of temperature both times I
have performed the ritual properly).
As incense I used jars filled with a mix of sugar, salpeter and
incense, which I ignited, creating red-violet fire and lots of irritating
I also used the following seals drawn in the snow or around the circle
In the summoning, I visualized a cloud of darkness slowly forming
behind reality, gathering into a vortex. Inside the vortex Yog-Sothoth
manifests from the higher dimensions. Its shape is highly highly variable.
Think of the movies of three-dimensional cross-sections of fourdimensional
objects, especially the pictures of julia sets in the quaternions. It
rotates, twists, splits up and reform itself constantly.
In the Gate opening, I visualize a Gate in front of me, a place where
reality gets thinner and thinner, until it reveals the Outside. A bit like
a picture where the image fades to reveal the wall behind. Also helpful is
meditation about the Schwartzhid metric in General Relativity.
