The Discovery of Emil Stejnar
Are we forced to rename most planetary entities
"Emil Stejnar, a well known Austrian Bardonist, discovered that Bardon used a simple cipher when communicating angel names to his friends. Unfortunately Franz Bardon died before his German publisher (Hermann Bauer in Freiburg) could be told of this cipher alphabet."
When Mr. Stejnar worked with the moon and sun sphere, he realized, that the spirits of the moon sphere are the same as told in old grimoirs (e.g. Agrippa), that the genii of the sun sphere correspond to the names of fixed stars, and that the spirits of the zone girdling the earth are identical with the spirits described by "Abramelin the Mage".
The Cipher Alphabet:
This cipher alphabet was used by Franz Bardon to communicate spirit names to his
students and friends.
A = E F = V LH = SCH R = T V = D
B = R G = W M = L S = N W = P
CH = H I = O N = G T = B Y = J
D = M K = Z O = U TZ = K ZH = CH
E = A L = S P = F U = I Z = C
Renaming the spirits of the sun sphere = Fixed Stars:
In Bardon's book the first genius of the Sun Sphere is called: EMNASUT. Using the above cipher Emnasut translates to: ALGENIB which is a fixed star in the sign of Aries.
The second angel of the Sun Sphere is LUBECH which translates to SIRAH, also a Fixed Star.
The 3. Sun Angel according to Bardon is TERAS which deciphered means BATEN also in the sign of Aries. etc. etc.
Stejnar: "The fixed stars are not the actual names of the sun sphere angels, they only serve to calculate the best time to contact these spirits.

Tim Scott (firstname.lastname@example.org) did a computer check to verify Stejnar's findings:
I wrote a little program to decode all those star names and ran it against the names in PME. I then compared the list to a list of fixed stars from a book called "The Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology." I think you may find it interesting.
I took the Bardon sphere being names (column 1) and decoded them using the table above. I then tried to find the name in Robson's "The Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology". As you can see it is crystal clear that many of the names correspond, some even exactly. The differences may be attributable to (a) mistakes, (b) different spelling of star names from German to English, (c) bodies not listed in Robson (I think some of the names below are familiar, but I don't have my good astronomical reference handy at the moment.) The longitudes are given as Sign: Degree (Aries=1, Taurus=2, etc.). I added 1 degree to the 1920 position given. You will notice that they are roughly in order around the zodiac.

Renaming the spirits of the moon sphere:
According to Mr. Stejnar the spirits of the moon sphere are the same as the names of the moon stations:
The 360 spirits of the Earth Zone:
Most interesting is Mr. Stejnar's finding, that all 360 spirits of the "earth girdling zone" have been mentioned also by Abramelin the Mage as given in the German edition by Peter Hammer 1725.
They are ordered by Bardon in a different way: he gives the spirit from the first to the 30th degree of every zodiacal sign. On the other hand, Abramelin gives the spirits of the first degree of every zodiacal sign, then of the 2nd degree of every zodiacal sign, then of the 3rd degree and so on.
Stejnar details that Abramelin's method has some advantages because the spirits of the same degree of all zodiacal signs are somewhat related to each other. The first and second degrees of every zodiacal sign are for example "positively electric" and all spirits of these first two degrees are working with the "Electric Fluid" and are related to the development of faculties like creativity, personality and power. The 9th, 10th, 19th, 20th, 29th and 30th degrees of all zodiacal signs are related to the element of water and the "Magnetic Fluid".
