Stella Matutina (Order of the Morning Star)
A temple of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, an
offshoot of the outer order that broke with the Golden Dawn’s
chief S. L. M. Mathers, and rejected moving the London temple
away from magic toward mysticism. It was founded by R. W.
Felkin around 1903. Its members included Dion Fortune, Israel
Regardie, W. B. Yeats and ‘‘E. Nesbit’’ (pseudonym of Mrs.
Bland, author of stories for children). Some of the members of
the Stella Matutina founded the healing organization, the
Guild of St. Raphael.
