March 2017 e.v. Bulletin

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

The Month of the Vernal Equinox and the Equinox of the Gods when the Sun enters the constellation of Aries is already again upon us but for now, the Sun is still in Pisces, the last in the annual Solar cycle of the Signs of the Zodiac, representing the last stage of winter before the coming Equinox on the twentieth of this month. The Moon is the eighteenth Atu of the Tarot, attributed to the the Hebrew letter Qoph, which represents Pisces in the Zodiac:
 
“Witch-moon, upon thy beck of blood afloat/The Midnight Beetle’s brave prophetic boat.”
– The Atu: Mnemonics, The Book of Thoth.

It is a time of year symbolic of the “the darkest hour before the dawn”, on the brink of a significant change in the Seasonal Tides. Crowley notes that Pisces might be called the “Gateway of Resurrection”. In the old aeon, the resurrection of the Sun was not only from winter but from night. The sacred Egyptian beetle Khephra “..bears the Sun in his Silence throughout the darkness of night and the bitterness of Winter.” So an appropriate meditation might be to “let the Illusion of the World pass over thee, unheeded as thou goest from the Midnight to the Morning.”

This year, here in London, the time of the Spring Equinox, is 10.28 GMT on Monday, 20 March e.v., on the same day as the Feast for the Supreme Ritual, and the beginning of the Thelemic New Year, Anno Viii. The Lodge Feast for the Equinox will be celebrated that evening. Save the date in your diaries. Further information will be coming shortly concerning the venue.
