On this date 8 October through 10 October 1904 Aleister Crowley went into the Cairo museum with his then wife Rose Kelly and she went into a trance state and led him to Exhibit #666 which was the Stele of Revealing. Over the next 3 days she transmitted, and he scribed, a book called Liber Al vel Legis from a being called Aiwass (interestingly as i typed his name the power went out in the area for an hour and a half, lol) announcing the beginning of the Aeon of Horus. I am not going to go into the Thelemic doctrine which followed except to say that the Aeon of Isis was when the Goddess ruled in ancient times. The Aeon of Osiris was when the God ruled specifically the dying god forms like in Christianity etc. The Aeon of Horus their son announced a new balanced and progressive religion.
In the history of various UPGs Jack Parsons with Marjorie Cameron channeled the Aeon of Babalon and in more modern times Nema channeled the Aeon of Maat the daughter. i had my own UPG in July of 1986 of a Star Goddess connected with Sirius-B and the Aeon of Hrumachis, the Lord of the Double Horizon or Double Wanded One, the androgyne hermaphrodite combination of all of the above deities. The latter, like i said, is my own Unverified Personal Gnosis meaning nothing to anyone but myself in my magickal practices. If anyone is interested i can email them the texts, my addy being on my Gravatar.
In one way i consider Crowley to be an egotistical drug addicted rogue. But in another way i consider him to be the greatest magickian of the turn of the last centuries. If you read his poetry and do his rituals, as i have, you nay find this out for yourselves. All i know for me is that this magickal practice has helped me in becoming a better Witch, Magickian and Tantricke.
Without going into further detail i am just going to add some links here to everything he has written:
My suggestion for the novice is to read The Book of Thoth which is about the Tarot he designed with Freida Harris because it contains the basis of his system of magick from the basis of Kaballah and the Golden Dawn and then explaining the Aeon of Horus as evolving from there.
