Symbol of Aerionian Rite

The Aerionian Rite is the variation of Freemasonry worked in the Grand Kingdom of Aerion, and within the Grand Orient of Aerion. It consists of a subtle change in degrees, but largely follows the rituals of other rites. Not much is known of its actual rituals, but the basic degrees of the Ancient Craft Lodge are known to be the same as the ritual of the other basic foundational three Ancient Craft Lodge degrees excepting requiring a belief in the Supreme being. It is considered to be one of the most secret rites today, as the rites are not written in a book but rather memorized and orated from person to person.
