Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Cancer represents Cheth of the Tree of Life, ( עֵץ הַחַיִּיםEtz haChayim) the path that leads from the great Mother Binah to Geburah. Upon the armour of the Charioteer are arrayed the ten Stars of Assiah: “the inheritance of the celestial dew from his mother.” Cheth has the Qabalistic value of 418 – Cheth 8, Yod 10 and Tau 400. The Master Therion has said of this number:
“This is one of the most important key numbers of Liber AL.It is the number of the word of the Aeon, ABRAHADABRA, the cypher Great Work. (See The Equinox of the Gods, p.138. Also The Temple of Solomon the King.) On this word alone a complete volume could, and should be written.”
Over the last three weeks, visiting international Brothers Tom, David & Patrick from the US and Ireland respectively have treated us to three excellent guest lectures on the demonising the entheogenic sacred feminine in the history of witchcraft, the roots of our rituals in older masonic traditions and the possible hidden but important role of peyote and peyotism in Crowley’s development of Thelema. Many thanks indeed to them for the very high quality of their personal work and their willingness to share it with us in clear and engaging presentations.
