Thoth Deck Tarot: Key 20-THE AEON

Those who have seen the old Traditional Card--The Angel or Last Judgment--know that the Thoth Deck Card seems to stray from tradition, However, Crowley states otherwise and says, "...it was necessary to depart completely from the tradition of the cards, in order to carry on that tradition."[Book of Thoth]
On the old card, an Angel was depicted as blowing a trumpet, flagged on the end with the symbol of the Eon of Osiris, while below him, three graves were opening up.  Of the three dead arising, one of them had his arms extended  in right angles at elbows and shoulders, forming the Hebrew letter Shin-meaning fire.  Thus, the card represented the destruction of the World by fire...the "world" being the Aeon of Osiris.
Aeon of Osiris ended in 1904 when the Solar-Fiery god Horus took over the position of Hierophant in the East, from the Airy god Osiris. Therefore, Crowley rightly thought that the new card should be a representation of the "Steele of Revealing".
 Lady Freda Harris, produced a card of magnificent detail, showing the  Star filled body of Goddess Nuit, the Star Goddess, who is the category of unlimited possibility; her mate Hadit, whom Crowley called ," the ubiquitous point-of-view, the only philosophically tenable conception of Reality.", is represented as a  winged globe of fire, representing eternal energy with the Power of Going. The resulting marriage of these two produces the child Horus (Heru-ra-ha.), shown in the images of a double god,  his extroverted (standing) image represents Ra--hoor-khuit and his passive or introverted sitting image represents Honor-pa-kraat.(you'll have to look these up in Egyptian myth for further explanation) . Horus, being a solar entity, is also shown coming forth in golden light. The whole of the explanation of the Aeon card is in Crowley's Book of Law.
At the bottom of the Aeon card we see the letter Shin , suggesting the form of a flower, the three Yods are occupied by three human figures (the three arising from graves on the Old Card) arising to partake of the  Essence of the new Aeon. Behind the letter Shin, is a symbolic representation of the zodiacal sign, Libra; Crowley called  this "... the forth-shadowing of the Aeon which is to follow the present one, presumably in about 2000 years."  In the Book of Law, Crowley depicts Ra-hoor-khuit; as stating,,"I am the Lord of the Double Wand of Power; the Wand of Force of Coph Nia; but my left hand is empty, for I have crushed an Universe;& naught remains."  Not much more about the future Aeon is shown on this card, as Crowley felt the present Aeon is too young to show more.
The Aeon (Eon) of Horus has come in with a fiery roar, with two world wars, and "police actions" of  great upheavals in political, moral,  physical and spiritual events. All of which have marked the catastrophic transition from the Aeon of Osiris to the Aeon of Horus. We can even  manifest the fiery might of Solar fusion on the planet itself in the form of Hydrogen bombs. It is indeed very instructive to study the Political massing of power,  with accompanying improvements in travel, and communication (all done by the male/female force electromagnetism) with great mental leaps in science and philosophy  and with a general need for the consolidation of religious thought. If we compare the five hundred years preceding the following crisis of  the Patriarch of approximately 2000 years ago, with those of similar periods in 1904 of the old era, 500 years of Dark Ages are likely to be upon us. Fortunately, we have brighter minds bearing enlightened torches of thought to light our way our of the present Dark Age of  Corporate enslavement and State Controlled identity....the Soul is arising and reclaiming its bodies! There is a Horus in all of us and many of us can feel Its Heat.
Oh, you might want to consider the fact that Horus is an androgynous figure, i.e. the combination of Nuit and Hadit. The new Aeon of Horus, is where the Matriarch and the Patriarch, unite in communion, to raise the Solar Children.
I hope I have given you just enough mental stimulation for you to seek the "deeper" meanings of this Card. Small actions, bring great motion!
When this card is thrown during a reading, the querent is usually experiencing a period of final decisions, Judgment, and determination of a issue without appeal on its plane where the querent is accepting the results of their decisions. The querent is experiencing a natural progression of growth and maturation , where personal perceptions are dissolving to be replaced by a deeper understanding; a resurrection into a new stage of consciousness. Spiritual truth is burning away, the falsehood of a man-made identity. The birth of a "new Self" arising out of the destruction of the old self. Change of position, renewal, and outcome.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!

Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When it comes to Metaphysics,Gnosticism, Qabalah, Auras and chakras, I have all kinds of information. When it comes to blogs, Vistaprint, handles all the coding for me. I am not a one apt at coding, so I fear I cannot help you. I am sure the people at Vistaprint could give you and idea. May you live long and prosper!

Nice article. However Hoor-paar-krakt is standing (passive form) and Ra-hoor-khuit is sitting (active).

Hi Patrick. Extroverted means, "an outgoing person who is more concerned with society than self" and that is Ra-hoor-khuit, and introverted means, " a shy person more concerned with there internal thoughts than others", so we could indeed say that Hoor-paar-krakt is passive, as an introvert and Ra-hoor-khuit is active as an extrovert. Good job! Thank you for your insight and comments. May you live long and prosper.
