Welcome Punkdonkey!

Is this your first foray into ritual magick? If so I would recommend the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram. It is not at 'Thelemic Ritual' per se, but it is very good. We have a very good writeup of it here.

The Equilibrating Ritual of the Pentagram - The Fool Speaks: Magick, Mayhem, Goetia, and the Occult Forums

Now personally, I find both the LBRP and the Star Ruby to work good together. I do the LBRP to banish and the Star Ruby to create a Thelemic Atmosphere.

As for when to do it, I would recommend the LBRP followed by the Star Ruby once a day at least, with any other rituals of invocation afterwards.

Once you start doing the rituals, then you can personalize them.

I have recently begun to actually practise the rituals of Thelema rather that just read about them.
I would like anyones advice about this as you can imagine I am a bit confused lol
What rituals would you recommend I begin with, obviously i thought the star ruby and the star sapphire. After this what ones should I move on to.
How often should you do the star ruby and the star saphire, is it everday or is it like a banishing before other rituals.
I have seen different versions of these rituals with slight differences, is it possible to personalise them in some way to make them mor powerful.
I hope you can help

And I believe in one Earth, the Mother of us all, and in one Womb wherein all men are begotten, and wherein they shall rest, Mystery of Mystery, in Her name BABALON.
