>> hard to determine; it's a real problem, knowing, who the black brothers
are - good or evil, and essential..
> are they anyone but a mirage, a mask, a frame of reference to plaster over
Considering the fact Muslim's have been practicing the black art for
centuries, among others, yes. If you believe in the Power of Magic, as a
Fact, and allow the possibility of an actual ability of an adept to perform
a magical act, it's very scary... especially considering today's technology.
I think here's where paranoia comes in handy.
>> I believe Crowley was well aware of the danger & tells us, on the QT, at
least two things specific, in the Hermit Card.

Sure, ok, and while we're at it, how about let's examine a few more graphs

According to the Numerical Significance of Liber AL's Numbers spelled in
Letters - ( 2=1, 1=2, 6=3, 3=9, 9=6 ). AL Proves His Numbers System in
Verse II.15-16: "The Empress and The King are not of me; for there is a
further secret. I am the Empress & the Hierophant. Thus eleven, as my
bride is eleven". Also AL's Numbers System Proves II.76; as a favor I Will
AL 1.60: My number is 11 as all their numbers who are of us.
Justice is 11, Nuit's Bride, the only 11.
Magus (Hadit) & the Lovers = 11.
Strength & the Hermit = 11. ( Lord Knows He needs it ).
Empress & the Hierophant =11.
The meanings of Tarot Cards has always confused me, never made much sense,
although, over the years I've had readings, and my own spreads - for the
most part revealed a ... ( who didn't know that? ) - like a snapshot,
energies, possible past and future pics of a present situation. Couple days
ago I was given a close look at the Organ Grinder's cogs & wheels, the
Machine Itself - Its Inner-Workings swirling & mixing & forming & charting &
turning the Old Musical Thing-a-majig.
Liber AL's Taroth's Inspired by Aiwass & EQ, A.E. Waite, Crowley,
oldsaintnick11, and the One Energy Appearing in 3 Forms; the Intelligent
Thing with wings stretching across the sky and light-streaming in all
directions from its body; the Great Dragon; Absolute Emperor of all,
"Poimandres", the God Osiris, and some Other Intelligent Thing not Known.
(Spirit) Water, Light & Fire Formed the 1st Form - ( 1, 2, 3 ) - Form the
The Hermit & The Lovers & The Empress - ( 3, 6, 9 ) - Form the 2nd Triad.
The 2nd Mind Formed the 3rd Triad - ( 5, 6, 7 ) - Thought, Reason & Sense.
AL's NUMBER-LETTER-NEUMERICAL-SYSTEM - ( 6=3, 3=9 & 9=6 ).
(Spirit) Water, Light & Fire, Formed Form - ( 0+1+2=3 ) - the 1st Triangle.
The 2nd Triangle could be Expressed 333, or simply THREE - 3 Gunas.
3 & 4 Formed Form, and Formed the 1st Square. - ( 0+1+2+3=4 ).
Liber A'Ashe 36: "This chain reaches from Eternity to Eternity, ever in
triangles is not my symbol a triangle? ever in circles is not the symbol of
the Beloved a circle?"
The 3 Gunas and 2nd Mind Formed the 7 Governors: 7 Harmonies, 7 Planets, 7
Species, 7 Races, Formed the 10 Karmas and the 8 Rings of Fire. Man has the
Power of Seven Governors plus Life, Light & Word, and the 8 rings of Fire.
Each Governor gives each man a share of Its own Nature. Orbits control the
World by Destiny. Man is controlled by Fate and Destiny.
FATE & DESTINY.
1. Moon, Increase or Division.
2. Mercury, Craftiness.
3. Venus, Lust & Passion.
4. Sun, Ambition.
5. Mars, Boldness.
6. Jupiter, Riches.
7. Saturn, Insight.
8. Ring of Fixed Stars.
So Liber AL Tarot can be Charted thru the Spheres according to 1st & 2nd
Mind, the One Energy in Three - Nuit, Hadit, Ra-Hoor-Khuit. Ra-Hoor-Khuit
is the Form; the Archetypes of the Supreme Mind, the Lover, Fiery-Workman,
Fashioner of Bodies, 1st Seed-Caster; Master-Builder of all living things.
The Emperor is the 2nd Mind. The Beds of Purple are entered thousands and
millions, maybe trillions of times day, by doctors with scalpels, and
erotica, which I personally don't think is restricted to arm sizes or hair
color. I think Aiwass was just being silly, tricky.
> textually, in his "The Book of Thoth", Crowley associates this with Virgo,
Thoth associates The Book of Thoth to the Planet Mercury, but there are 7
Planets and 7 Orbits.
> Fertility, and with the Psychopompos. I don't get the sense of 'evil
anger' at all. at worst, Hades.
The Hermit IS the Levels of Dark Matter. All matter is a level of Dark
Matter. The Hermit is the Creator of All bodies, their gray matter, and the
deepest purplest beds of blood & pulsing raw flesh.
> graphically though his raiment is Martian red, and his surrounds are green
and blue, and his little companion is reputed to be a monster. is the Hermit
You mean the hideous monster, part serpent, part crocodile, and part hog;
from its mouth and nostrils poured sheets of flame followed by streamers of
greenish mist, and horrible sounds echoed through the vaulted chambers?
Well, some of the black hermits conjure monsters and demons. AL's prefer
exploring other esoteric Pleasures. I think Ra-Hoor-Khuit refers to as:
"the holier place" he goes "on to". Far more Magickal and WAY more fun,
I've been told.
>> Obviously, he knew what AL's Hermits look like; even I imagine They're
having a Goodly-Time-Raising-Spell.
> at least he knew how that text incorporated a description of that trifold
stepped array. Man of Earth, Lover, Hermit.
Aaaahhhaooooh... "and my number is nine by the fools but with the just I am
one in eight; for I am none indeed".
O' Chosen One! Ya got it! I knew the O' Eightfold Goat that shall be
equilibrated with the Three was veiled in the midst, behind a lying spectre
somewhere around here.
"O Hermes Understand, the Divine Light dwells in the midst of mortal
darkness, and ignorance cannot divide them. As the darkness without you is
divided against itself, so the darkness within you is likewise divided
against itself. Of the Immortal Man it should be said that He is
hermaphrodite, or male and female, and eternally watchful. He neither
slumbers nor sleeps, and is governed by a Father also both male and female,
and ever watchful. Such is the mystery kept hidden to this day, for Nature,
being mingled in marriage with the Sky Man, brought forth a wonder most
wonderful - seven men, all bisexual, male and female, and upright of
stature, each one exemplifying the natures of the Seven Governors. These, O
Hermes, are the seven races, species, and wheels."
>> Crowley's Hermit depicts the opposite; angry, evil magician,
> i don't see that. quote something for me which indicates this aspect of
... something I saw qualify?
>> I think deliberately to show each Card's Duality; not only as reversed,
also as within, maybe even part of another deck, most secret, sacred kept
safe locked in the Temple of Reason, two Readings in one, such a deal! I
believe Crowley gave us this Key - in Lust of True Purpose.
>> Anyway, this is the Message old Crowley gave me. I don't have to ask the
> no way to see that without being you.
Well you maybe could, or others who enjoy staying up 48 straight. I've
realized, Crowley's Deck came from the Aethers, Enochian, and Astral... from
the Din-Rainbow-Mist. I believe this is why his is so different and dark
yet colourful - his Cards expose clearly the dark side - I think was
Crowley's warning. How else could he say it? - there are no words, and no
Proof, just Visions roused from the deeper levels of dark matter - the Isle
"The downward-turned and unreasoning elements brought forth creatures
without Reason. Substance could not bestow Reason, for Reason had ascended
out of it. The air produced flying things and the waters such as swim. The
earth conceived strange four-footed and creeping beasts, dragons, composite
demons, and grotesque monsters."
For a Proof, look at Crowley's Lovers... what do you see?
Choose ye an island!
Love is the Law, Love under Will.
