Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
The Equniox has passed and once again we welcome the forthcoming Dark Season. Days are shortening. Sol has entered the sign of Libra with his power waning and remains here until the 23rd of this month. Summer is over, the colours of autumn are all about us and the Day of the Dead brings the month to a close.
Adjustment is the Atu that represents the sign of Libra, ruled by Venus and in which Saturn is exalted. The Master Therion has written that in this Atu:
“…the equilibrium of all things is hereby symbolised. It is the final adjustment in the formula of Tetragrammaton, when the daughter, redeemed by her marriage with the Son, is thereby set up on the throne of the mother; thus, finally, she ‘awakens the Eld of the All-Father’.”
The Goddess here is Maat, bearing upon her nemyss the ostrich feathers of the Twofold Truth: “This woman-goddess is Harlequin; she is the partner and fulfilment of The Fool. She is the ultimate illusion which is manifestation; she is the dance, many-coloured, many-wiled, of Life itself. Constantly whirling, all possibilities are enjoyed, under the phantom show of Space and Time: all things are real, the soul is the surface, precisely because they are instantly compensated by this Adjustment. All things are harmony and beauty; all things are Truth: because they cancel out.”
In Holy Meditation, analyse the characteristic of the Atu:
“Balance against each thought its exact opposite. For the Marriage of these is the Annihilation of Illusion.”
