O --   I call upon the Star Goddess,
         She who is without beginning,
         without end,
         everlasting to Eternity.
Gaelic prayer in Carmina Gadelica, via the Gardnerian Book of Shadows.

X--   O Circle of Stars,
         Whereof our Father is but the younger Brother,
         Marvel beyond imagination,
         Soul of Infinite Space,
         before Whom Time is ashamed,
         the mind bewildered,
         and the understanding dark:
         not unto Thee may we attain unless Thine image we love.
         Therefore by seed and root,
         by bud and stem,
         by leaf and flower and fruit,
         by life and love,
         do we invoke Thee.
          (Aleister Crowley, “Gnostic Mass,” IV.)

# --   Holy, Holy, Holy,
         unto five hundred and fifty-five times Holy
         be the Name of Our Lady of the Stars.
          (Aleister Crowley, The Book of Lies, chap. 56.)

o --   Queen of Space, hail!
         Queen of Stars, hail! [Eleven times per group]

* --    Blessed be the Star Goddess,
         in the dust of Whose feet are the hosts of heaven,
         Whose body encircleth the universe.
          (The Wiccan “Charge”)

X --   O Queen of Space,
         O Jewel of Light,
         Continuous One of the Heavens --
         Let it ever be thus:
         that men speak not of Thee as One
         but as None.
         And let them speak not of Thee at all
         since Thou art continuous.
          (Aleister Crowley, Book of the Law (Liber Al) I:27)

O --   For Thou art the Star Goddess,
         She Who is without beginning,
         without end,
         everlasting to Eternity.

The numbers and groupings of the beads are based on Liber AL, in which Nuit says, ”I am Nuit, and my word is six and fifty” (I:24), and “My number is 11, as all their numbers who are of us. The Five Pointed Star, with a Circle in the Middle, & the circle is red” (I:60). There are five groupings of eleven small beads. These make 55, which gives 56 when the bead indicated by “X” is included. The groups are enclosed within 10 beads, the ones marked “*” and “#.” Again combining them with the X bead, we get 11.

This rosary can be said without the actual object. With one hand keep track of each group of “Blessed be the Star Goddess … Lady of the Stars,” and with the other the individual beads of “Queen of Space, hail!” For the latter, go one way through your fingers, then back again, then say one more. This way the rosary can be said just about any time, such as when lying in bed to go to sleep, and even when driving.
