March 2018 e.v. Bulletin

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

The Sun is in Pisces and remains there until the Vernal Equinox, The Equinox of the Gods and beginning of the Thelemic New Year on the 20th of this month. Luna goes full tomorrow at 00.51, the last Full Moon before the Equinox. The New Moon is on the 17th.

The Thoth Tarot card that represents Pisces in the Zodiac is Atu XVIII : The Moon. As we are in the last icy, cold grip of winter, awaiting the Vernal Equinox, the return of the spring and the coming Thelemic New Year, the symbolism of the Egyptian Khephra, the sacred Beetle, that leaps out from the imagery of this Atu. Rising from the water at the bottom of the card’s image, Khephra is bearing in his mandibles the Solar Disk: “It is this Beetle that bears the Sun in his Silence through the darkness of Night and the bitterness of Winter.”

In the external world, the card can represent both midnight in the cycle of the day and the end of the winter in the cycle of the year. Internally, the metaphorical dark hours before the dawn of mystical attainment or realisation, the sleep-like suffering of ignorance prior to the moment of awakening.

“Witch-moon of blood, eternal ebb and flow
Of baffled birth, in death still lurks a change;
And all the leopards in thy woods that range,
And all the vampires in their boughs that glow,
Brooding on blood-thirst-these are not so strange
And fierce as life’s unfailing shower. These die,
Yet time rebears them through eternity.”

– Book of Lies
Pointing beyond the illusory dualism of the apparent horrors and abominations of the darkness as contrasted with the emergence into light, the Master Therion urges us to see the oft dreaded Dark Night of the Soul more profoundly as part of a “..splendid Adventure!”
