Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
The Sun is in Aquarius until the 18th of the month, Luna is waning gibbous following an eclipse. The Star, Atu XVII refers to Aquarius in the Zodiac and is attributed to the Hebrew letter He’.
The image in the Thoth Tarot deck represents Nuith, our Lady of the Stars. The Master Therion says in the Book of Thoth that this Atu gives the definite formula for the attainment of truth and that to comprehend the full meaning of this it is necessary to understand the first chapter of the Book of the Law, emphasising the practical importance of the conclusion of that chapter:
“I give unimaginable joys on earth: certainty, not faith, while in life, upon death; peace unutterable, rest, ecstasy; nor do I demand aught in sacrifice.
“But to love me is better than all things: if under the night-stars in the desert thou presently burnest mine incense before me, invoking me with a pure heart, and the Serpent flame therein, thou shalt come a little to lie in my bosom. For one kiss wilt thou then be willing to give all; but whoso gives one particle of dust shall lose all in that hour. Ye shall gather goods and store of women and spices; ye shall wear rich jewels; ye shall exceed the nations of the earth in splendour & pride; but always in the love of me, and so shall ye come to my joy. I charge you earnestly to come before me in a single robe, and covered with a rich headdress. I love you! I yearn to you! Pale or purple, veiled or voluptuous, I who am all pleasure and purple, and drunkenness of the innermost sense, desire you. Put on the wings, and arouse the coiled splendour within you: come unto me!
“At all my meetings with you shall the priestess say-and her eyes shall burn with desire as she stands bare and rejoicing in my secret temple -To me! To me! calling forth the flame of the hearts of all in her love-chant.
“Sing the rapturous love-song unto me! Burn to me perfumes! Wear to me jewels! Drink to me, for I love you! I love you!
“I am the blue-lidded daughter of Sunset; I am the naked brilliance of the voluptuous night-sky.
“To me! To me!
“The Manifestation of Nuit is at an end.”
