   Thoth is the Great Scribe, Magician and Messenger of the Gods, who we adore in all of our Holy Rites at the Sanctuary.  He is the Tongue of Ra.  He is also Tahuti, Hermes and Mercury upon High.  He is rightly invoked for Wisdom in all matters concerning the Great Work, and particularly on the Day of Mercury.
