Moorish Qualities and Their Attributes: A Brief Exploration

The below represent a small listing of possible Hermetic arrangements for the six Moorish qualities found in the work of the MOC. Included are the Elements, Magickal Weapons, Direction, Time of Year, Station of the Sun, Elementals, Archangels with their Islamic equivalents in parentheses, Angels, Hebrew God Names, and Islamic God Names. In some cases it was not possible to include an entry due to the nature of the elemental attribute of the quality: Active and Passive Spirit. This is a dynamic list and revisions and criticisms would be most appreciated.
