and are stars not but the light of angels?

In terms of Dulcimer's question about whether this could be a 'fake' ritual, I am confident it is not fake, but rather forms part of a large body of rituals that had a very short life.

Many rituals emerged and were then either incorporated or in other ways intered within what came to be known as the Ancient and Accepted Rite or, in some cases, the Primitive MM Rite. Others took even more curious turns and became the various quasi-masonic organisations that emerged in especially continental Europe, and some were later re-established within Freemasonry under the 'York' rite in the USA.

Again, a fascinating side-line with regards to the usage of angelic names, and the role these play in the esoteric occidental tradition.
