Thelema differs in many ways but also has some things in common. In fact many Wiccans are aware of his influence on the craft because of his assocations with Gareld Gardner. The main diff is pagan practice Low Magick; Thelemites prac High Magick. Generally only the equinoxes are celebrated this comes from the GD tradition. In the Book of the Law Hadit tells us of the Holy Days
Liber Al II-
35. Let the rituals be rightly performed with joy & beauty! 36. There are rituals of the elements and feasts of the times. 37. A feast for the first night of the Prophet and his Bride! 38. A feast for the three days of the writing of the Book of the Law. 39. A feast for Tahuti and the child of the Prophet--secret, O Prophet! 40. A feast for the Supreme Ritual, and a feast for the Equinox of the Gods. 41. A feast for fire and a feast for water; a feast for life and a greater feast for death! 42. A feast every day in your hearts in the joy of my rapture! 43. A feast every night unto Nu, and the pleasure of uttermost delight!
