January 2018 e.v. Bulletin

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Greetings and best wishes for the vulgar new year!
The Sun is in the sign of Capricorn, remaining there until the 19th of this month. Luna is full. Atu XV, The Devil, refers to Capricornus in the Zodiac. 
Atu XV: “…represents creative energy in its most material form; in the Zodiac, Capricornus occupies the Zenith. It is the most exalted of the signs; it is the goat leaping with lust upon the summits of earth. The sign is ruled by Saturn, who makes for selfhood and perpetuity. In this sign, Mars is exalted, showing in its best form the fiery, material energy of creation. The card represents Pan Pangenetor, the All-Begetter.”
– The Book of Thoth
The goat portrayed on the card is identified with Pan. The Sun enters Capricorn after he reaches his most extreme southern declination at the Winter Solstice and then begins his return northwards to renew the year:
“…the divine madness of spring, already foreseen in the meditative madness of winter;..”
Observation of the Sun with awareness of the facts of astronomy is a key to the New Aeon, enabling us to transcend superstition arising from the representation of our ideas in a pluralistic symbolism based upon an illusory duality.

“Thus The Devil is Capricornus, the Goat, who leaps upon the loftiest mountains, The Godhead which, if it becomes manifest in man, makes him the AEgipan, the All.”

– Magick in Theory and Practice
