Crowley born between Gremori and Marax

Crowely was born on the cusp between Gremori's control of Venus and Marax's control of Mars, with both Saturn and Jupiter coming into play as his guides. His inner nature, therfore, being initally "feminine" is outwardly expressed in a masculine manner. In Liber AL he is described as the priest of Thebian god Mentu of the 26th Dyanstic Prince Ankh-af-na-Khonsu, being named after the 20th Dynatic Moon-god Khonsu (verses the Khonsu of the Old Kingdom) Crowley himself wrote about this "confusion" of sexes in his Liber LIX Ch 3,
"It was the equinox of Spring, and all my life stirred in me. They led me down the cool colannades of might stone clad in robes of white broidered with silver, and veiled with a veil of fine gold web fastened with rubies. They gave me not the Uraeus Crown, nor any nemyss, nr the Ateph crown, but bound my forehead with a simply fillet of green leaves--vervain (i.e., Earth, Venus, Feminine) and mandrake (i.e., Fire, Mercury, Masculine) and certain deadly herbs of which it is not fitting to speak. Now the priests of the Veiled One were sore perplexed, for that never before had any boy been chosen priestess..."

Furhermore, this follows the peculiarity of Nuit and Geb, whereby in most ancient cultures the Earth god (Geb) is actually a "[feminine] goddess", while the Sky goddess (Nuit) is actually a "[masculine] god". This reversal of "feminine" and "masculine" roles is demonstrated throughout both the Egyptian writings and Crowley's writings.

Hi,
Very interesting post. Ive never really studied astrology personally but have always wanted to, any books you could recommend as a good place to start? I wouldn't mind becoming more famliar with this aspect of Occultism.

Not that I am suggesting that this is an Occult website of course!!! 😉

There are so many books on Astrology in my library that I can not possibly recommend them all, even though I wish I could:
(1) "Horoscope Symbols" by Robert Hand, Published by Para Research
Inc., Alpine Press
(2) "Encylopeida of Astrology" by Nicholas de Vore, Published
by Littlefield, Adams & Co., Totowa, NJ
These two books are probably the ones which I would recommend the most to anyone just starting out in Astrology. Along with these two references, I would also strongly suggest taking college courses in Astronomy and Archeo-Astronomy, as well as Physics and Mathematics. Astrology is highly mathematical, with peoples actions generally following "cyclic" patterns, atleast on the macro scale. Critics who have difficulties with Astrological euphemisms, hypocritically seem to have no problem with the concept of either "business cycles" or "biological cycles". You will find that even "luck" has a mathematical basis. I wish you well, Joe

thankyou so much for that Joe, I'll look into those books and take on board your advice.

Best wishes,
