Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Each Thelemic year starts at the instant of the northern-hemisphere Vernal Equinox, coinciding today with the Thelemic holiday called the Feast for the Equinox of the Gods.
The Equinox of the Gods is celebrated on the Vernal Equinox and as the Feast for the Supreme Ritual is always celebrated on March 20, they usually fall no more than two days apart from one another and quite often coincide on the same day, as they do this year. The two share a single line in The Book of the Law, II.40 :
“A feast for the Supreme Ritual, and a feast for the Equinox of the Gods.”
Today, we begin our holiday with a celebration of the Feast for the Supreme Ritual : The Invocation of Horus, taking place at 12.30pm, Anno V:iii : ☉ 29º ♓︎: ☽ 6º ♉︎ prior to the Vernal Equinox, The Equinox of the Gods, and the beginning of the Thelemic New Year at 4.15pm GMT : Anno V:iv : ☉ 0º 0′ ♈︎: ☽ 8º 36′ ♉︎
The Thelemic Holy Season is recognised as the period of twenty-two days falling between the common dates of today, March 20 and April 10, the Third Day of the Writing of the Book of the Law. Thelemites observing this Season variously attribute the Thelemic New Year to March 20, or the First or Third day of the Three Days of the Writing of the Book of the Law. Some have treated this Season as existing outside any “year,” in the conventional sense, or as one long, twenty-two day Thelemic New Year.
Each of the twenty-two days of the Thelemic Holy Season, from March 20 through to April 10, can be attributed to one of the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet – starting today with The Universe and working back to the The Fool on April 10. You could on each of these days, prominently display the corresponding Tarot Trump and meditate, do appropriate rituals, or other engage in other recollections and recognitions of the principle of the image. Some conduct a twenty-two day pathworking in the appropriate order based on each of the Thoth Tarot Atu on the Tree of Life.
Whatever you do, celebrate with force and fire and most of all, enjoy!
