THE WORDS OF THE EQUINOX

BY TAU MEITHRAS

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Autumn Equinox 2019 e.v.

On this page we will publish the most current Word of the Equinox, following the tradition started by Aleister Crowley back in 1907 e.v.

These were sent to each member of the A∴A∴ (Neophyte and above) in good standing, and several lineages continue to honour this tradition in the Inner, as we have decided to now start doing it in the Outer.

The manner in which Crowley received each of these oracular Words varied from equinox to equinox.  While many were derived utilising a sex magick rite of one sort or another, there was no consistency in the method.

Sometimes the Word was chosen days before the actual Equinox and at other times after – working alone or with others.  At times, he would “hear” the Word, in other instances the Word was given through an assistant or received in a vision. 

There is also a versified Ritual of the Ceremony of the Equinox incorporating aspects of the Neophyte ritual which remains unpublished and was utilised by Crowley on certain occasions.

More on the Words can be found on the A∴A∴ website by Frater Orpheus, including the most comprehensive list of Words published so far.

Love is the law, love under will
