Thoth Deck Tarot: Key 11-LUST

The Thoth Deck Key 11- Lust, is represented in many decks, as the Strength card. Crowley believe that there is far more truth and magick in the title of Lust. Upon viewing the Tree of Life, one can see that The Lust Card is not the path of Strength of Geburah ( Severity) but rather the influence from Chesed (Mercy) upon Geburah. It is also interesting to note, that the Path of Lust is balance both vertically and horizontally. Crowley judged Lust to be a more expansive term than Strength because Lust implies not only Strength bit the joy of strength exercised.  To me, it is vigor and the rapture of vigor expressed in True Presence. This Rapturous Vigor represents something I call "Will to Be"; when the Soul's will to be is fully established in the physical flesh,  " Beauty and Strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire, are of  us!"...to quote Crowley.
 I really recommend that the truly seeking student get:  THE BOOK OF THOTH (Egyptian Tarot) by Master Theron (Crowley) where the lascivious poetry and passionate prose, start a fire in your imagination. For this card cannot be understood by rationale thought, it must be felt in your guts as a burning passion, to be understood.
The Zodiacal assignation of  the Lust card is Leo which is the Kerub of Fire and ruled by the Sun.  This card is considered the most powerful of the 12 zodiacal cards and represents the most critical operations of both Magick and Alchemy.
The Hebrew letter attributed to this card is Teth, meaning serpent. The union of the zodiac and the letter Teth, produces the image we see  illustrated on the Lust card,of the "Lion- Serpent" (latter to be called, Dragon who is a compilation of all animals) that combines the many headed lion body with a haloed Serpent tail. The Lust card portrays the original marriage as it occurs in nature showing a divine drunkenness or ecstasy. The woman (representing the Moon) is shown a little drunk,maybe a little mad with ecstasy riding upon a lust inflamed lion. This implies the creative and  primitive order of energy that is completely independent of the criticism of reason.
The Thoth Deck Lust card portrays the Will of the Aeon (Will to be). The goddess is holding high The Grail filled with the blood of Saints, whose whole life has been absorbed by the Grail and  whose bloodless images are in the back ground of this card.
In order to understand the magical doctrine of the Aeons, it is necessary to refer to the most ancient fables,legends and of the Zodiac.,The Aeons are subject to Zodiacal procession, for instance, the Aeon of Isis (the first Aeon) was connected to Pisces and Virgo. The last Aeon, that of Osiris, is connected to Aries and Libra. The present Aeon of Horus, is refered to Aquarius and Leo. The central mystery of the Aeon of Osiris , was that of incarnation, and  descriptions of all god-men were founded on some mythological story of some kind that essentially denied human fatherhood to the hero or god-man (Daemon -in Greek) by portraying a animal in god form as the impregnator of the immaculate conceptions.For example, the Dove of the Holy Ghost, impregnated the Virgin Mary., Romulus and Remus (twins of Rome) where begotten of the God Mars and a virgin and were suckled by a Wolf. The father of Gautama Buddha, was said to be an elephant with six tusks who appeared in his mothers dream. Similar fables are to found in every religion based on the Dying God (the Aeon of Osiris). I would recommend a brief study of these fables before tomorrow's presentation of Part Two - the Thoth Deck Key 11-Lust card.
Thank you for your interest and comments, May you live long and prosper!

I've been reading with the Thoth since I was 17, 23 years now, and tripped upon your blog last night looking for some more perspectives on this card. I truly love it, very interesting reading covering so many angles of meaning of each card in so little space! I ended up looking up your takes on half a dozen other cards and will sign up to follow you now.
