Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
First Course, Antipasti –
In a small Temple dedicated to the practice of Thelemic Gnosticism a feast is spread
upon the rugs that cover the floor of this sacred place. Artfully arranged in the shape of the Tree of the most holy Qabala are the dishes that will be the support of this sacred meal. Each offering is dedicated to the attributes of the Divine force that infuses all corners of the Universe through the lost art of the Doctrine of Signatures: things here harmonize with things there all the way up and out to the mind of God. By putting things here in accord with the levels above them you free yourself from the malefic forces that arise from these energies' imbalance. Wine, bread, seasoned meats, fruits, vegetables, sweets. A sense of both the sacred and romantic commingled under candlelight. The purpose of this Εορτηθελημας , or Feast of Will/Desire, is to cause the participants to remember. To remember that they are children of the Stars and that even the most humble of meals contains the same proportion of atomic ingredients as the rest of the 70 sextillion stars which surround us 78 billion light years out on all sides. This is a meal of some significance. A Brother rises and addresses his fellow guests with the Law of this Age and a prayer of recognition to the Sun. Hurriedly they go through the verses as the food soaks up the candlelight and emits heavenly aromas. Finally, the moment has arrived and the sacrifice of Life and Joy is absorbed by the magicians present. Laughter and wonder fill the air as the infinite and boundless weaves its way through the limited and hindered.
Second Course, Prima Piatti I have often been asked about the holidays that we as Thelemites celebrate. Many of
my associates who are unfamiliar with the tenets of Thelema find themselves bewildered with the heterodox nature of these celebrations. After all, for many people “holidays” are equivalent to an unrelenting set of practices loaded to the rafters with seemingly contradictory symbols that have changed very little since their earliest childhood memories. Often what does change is the eventual elimination of the wonderment that these events once brought to them. Consequently, the holiday’s original connection to the ineffable forces of Life and their varied forms of manifestation also seem to get lost in the scramble. However, as Thelemites we are encouraged if only by our own sense of adventure to celebrate many of our holy days in as diverse a fashion as the imagination and our resources will allow. It is the aim of this writing to try to understand the basic operating principles involved with these celebrations by both analyzing Crowley’s writings on the subject, as well as investigating the activities of other cultures whose practices may shed some light on our own. Let us begin by first looking at the verses given in Liber AL vel Legis that have given us our sacred calendar and by which we may begin to understand the holidays given therein: From Ch. II, Liber CCXX: 34. But ye, o my people, rise up & awake! 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! 44. Aye! feast! rejoice!there is no dread hereafter. There is the dissolution, and eternal ecstasy in the kissesof Nu. When Crowley received this calendar from Aiwass in Cairo shortly after noon on April 9, 1904 æ.v., the New Aeon wasn’t even a month old. In these verses and in Crowley’s eventual commentary on them, we find yet another wondrous key to a full and joyous life. But before we begin looking at this key, let us first ask, “what qualifies as a 'feast?'”
A feast according to the American Heritage Dictionary is “a large, elaborately prepared meal, usually for many persons and often accompanied by entertainment; a banquet.” It is also described as “a meal that is well prepared and abundantly enjoyed;” “a periodic religious festival commemorating an event or honoring a god or saint” and also as “something giving great pleasure or satisfaction.” It may also be treated as a verb if one is actively participating in a feast as celebrant, celebrator or host. Easton’s Bible Dictionary of 1897 says of the feast: "It was one of the designs of the greater solemnities, which required the attendance of the people at the sacred tent, that the oneness of the nation might be maintained and cemented together, by statedly congregating in one place, and with one soul taking part in the same religious services. But that oneness was primarily and chiefly a religious and not merely a political one; the people were not merely to meet as among themselves, but with Jehovah, and to present themselves before him as one body; the meeting was in its own nature a binding of themselves in fellowship with Jehovah; so that it was not politics and commerce that had here to do, but the soul of the Mosaic dispensation, the foundation of the religious and political existence of Israel, the covenant with Jehovah. To keep the people's consciousness alive to this, to revive, strengthen, and perpetuate it, nothing could be so well adapted as these annual feasts." In the above verses of the Book of the Law we are encouraged to feast at prescribed times as well as to perform rituals dedicated to the classical elements. At first glance one may believe these to be separate activities. After all, for many novice magicians a ritual is a very serious thing which demands single-pointed concentration. While a feast on the other hand is commonly viewed as the acme of repose. But as Thelemites we must “rise up” and “awake!” Crowley adds: “A ritual is not a melancholy formality; it is a Sacrament, a Dance, a Commemoration of the Universe. The Universe is endless rapture, wild and unconfined, a mad passion of speed. Astronomers tell us this of the Great Republic of the Stars; physicists say the same of the Little Republic of Molecules. Shall not the Middle Republic of Men be like unto them? The polite ethicist demurs; his ideal is funereal solemnity. His horizon is bounded by death; and his spy-glass is smeared with the idea of sin. The New Aeon proclaims Man as Immortal God, eternally active to do His Will. All's Joy, all's Beauty; this Will we celebrate.” “In this verse we see how the awakening leads to ordered and purposeful action. Joy and Beauty are the evidence that our functions are free and fit; when we take no pleasure, and find nothing to admire, in our work, we are doing it wrong.”
In many ways Crowley’s definitions of the proper attitude towards ritual work are the same qualities that are necessary in producing an efficacious feast. Both require attention to detail, especially if they are created for the enjoyment of a given deity (which we all in truth are). And both are expected to exude joy and beauty to them that actively participate in the celebration. The difference between the two according to Crowley’s commentary is that “by the one [‘rituals’] a particular form of energy is generated, while there is a general discharge of one's superfluous force in the other [‘feasts’]. Yet a feast implies periodical nourishment.” Therefore, by performing the rituals of the elements during the given times of the year we are either generating or becoming more aware of the elemental energies necessary for our continual spiritual growth, but if we find that we have become supersaturated with a given elemental formula we are able to funnel that excessive energy into the preparation and enjoyment of the feast. In one sense, to borrow language from the Qabalistic Cross of the Star Ruby, when we rise up as “O Phalle” (O Phallus) and awake as “Soi” (Thine) the “rituals of the elements” become our “Ischuros” (Strength) while the “feasts of the times” become our “Eucharistos”(Feast of Thanksgiving.) The natural result of which is our experience of the Reality that is described in the magickal formula of “IAO.” If one were to have one without the other the results would be predictably catastrophic: either psychic imbalance on one end or empty gluttony and libertinage on the other. This is doubly so when dealing with group workings. It is difficult enough to try and maintain a dynamic equilibrium on one’s own, but when working with groups where there are varying degrees of awareness and technical proficiency it is in everyone’s best interest to observe both rituals and feasts in order to maintain group cohesiveness and wellbeing.
Third Course, Secondi Piatti Before going further I wish to examine the astrological and elemental associations
involved with these celebrations. Since this course is served in a heavy stellar sauce, I feel it is necessary to give a brief explanation for the astrologically illiterate. The zodiacal belt is composed of twelve stellar constellations that line the solar ecliptic--the path the Sun appears to make as the Earth orbits around it. Each of these signs consists of 30° of arc with all twelve signs creating a 360° belt. To these twelve constellations are attributed a number of psychological and spiritual qualities. These attributions are seen as being relative and harmonious to the characteristics of the mythological figure represented by the constellation. For the purposes of this essay, however, I have chosen to focus primarily on the elemental attributes of the zodiac. Each zodiacal sign is assigned one of the four classical elements – Earth, Air, Fire, & Water. In addition to having an elemental association, each sign also has a “quality” which defines the level of development of the element associated with that sign. The three qualities, also known as “triplicities,” are called the Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable qualities. The Cardinal quality represents the initial onset of the particular elemental energy represented by the sign. This quality is generally seen as being a lively and impatient stage of the elements’ advancement. It is the energy of our rambunctious teenage years with its drama queens, obnoxious jocks, frail bookworms, and snobbish brats. The signs associated with the Cardinal quality are Aries (Fire), Libra (Air), Cancer (Water) and Capricorn (Earth). Where the Cardinal signs represented the unmistakable rawness of youth, the Fixed signs signify the apex of the development of that elemental energy. In these signs the element has reached a level of maturity and concentration whose power could only be hinted at in the Cardinal signs. The growth of the elements of Fire, Air, Water and Earth reach their peak annual expansion in the signs of Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio and Taurus respectively. Finally, we come to the Mutable signs whose elemental associations are in a dynamic transitional state. The energies of these signs tend to be of a flexible and adaptable nature as each element wanes and prepares for its inevitable transformation. Sagittarius (Fire), Gemini (Air), Pisces (Water) and Virgo (Earth) as Mutable signs each come before and announce the onset of a Cardinal sign. Sagittarius leads Fire’s transformation into Earthly Capricorn. Gemini heralds Air’s metamorphosis into Watery Cancer. The Piscean Water yields to the Fire of Aries. Finally, the Earthen Virgin gives birth to the Airy Libra. This cycle is also found in a qabalistic analysis of the Tetragrammaton where the Fire of Yod merges with the Earth of He’ (final) who transforms into or mates with Vau which ends up as He’ who joins with Yod, etc. ad infinitam.
It should be reiterated that the above description of the Zodiac only touches on the elemental qualities of these signs and does not go into their more complex magical characteristics. So bearing the above in mind, when exactly are the “rituals of the elements and feasts of the times?” The rituals of the elements are suggested by Crowley to be particularly suitable for the equinoxes and solstices when the Sun enters the first decan (1-10°) of each of the Cardinal Zodiacal signs thereby marking the changes in seasons. As stated above, these particular signs are of a cardinal quality and therefore may be seen as embodying the initial arrival of each element during the year. Therefore, a Ritual for Fire (not the Feast for Fire) may be held on the Vernal Equinox when the Sun enters the sign of Aries. A Ritual for Air may be held on the Autumnal Equinox when the Sun enters the sign of Libra. A Ritual for Water (not the Feast for Water) may be held on the Summer Solstice when the Sun enters the sign of Cancer. And a Ritual for Earth may be held on the Winter Solstice when the Sun enters the sign of Capricorn. A ritual held during the first decan of a cardinal elemental sign serves to channel the turbulent elemental forces that result from the transition preceding the ritual. In the language of non-linear dynamical systems, the turbulence of the dynamic mutable signs (which we translate as flexibility and adaptability) breeds singularities in the form of the cardinal elemental energy. Rituals performed with the goal of harnessing these elemental “singularities” jump-start the magicians' access of these forces. The Feasts mentioned in the calendar section of the second chapter of Liberr AL are celebrated not just throughout the year but also throughout the life of the magician. These can be classified as either Punctual or Occasional (to borrow terms from T Polyphilus' sacramental classification system) to which a third may be added, Daily. The Punctual Feasts are the Feast of Life, the Feast of Fire, the Feast of Water and the Greater Feast. The Feast of Life (sometimes called the “Lesser Feast”) celebrates the birth of a child. The Feasts of Fire and Water celebrate the beginning of puberty for males and females respectively. And the Greater Feast represents one's reunion with Nuit that occurs at the death of the body. The Occasional Feasts are feasts that are celebrated throughout the year in commemoration of an important development in the history of the Thelemic cultus. The Feast of the First Night of the Prophet and his Bride on August 12, commemorates the wedding of Rose Kelly (Ouarda, the Seer) and Crowley whose relationship was critical in the unveiling of the Law. The Feast for the Three Days of the Writing of the Book of the Law occur on April 8-10th and celebrates the three daily one-hour sessions which comprised the reception of the Book of the Law to Crowley from Aiwass in 1904 æ.v. The Feast for the Supreme Ritual celebrates the performance of an invocation to the God Horus which
Crowley believed formally began the Aeon of Horus on March 20, 1904. The Feast of the Equinox of the Gods is usually observed at the Vernal Equinox but in fact Crowley had stated that it should be celebrated at each Equinox both Vernal and Autumnal. The Daily feasts are the daily Feast to the Joy of Had and the evening Feast Unto Rapturous Nu. The first feast observes the “joy of awakening every morning to the truth of one's immortal energy and rapture.” While the second commends the reunion of the magician to Nu during sleep. The daily Eucharistic ritual given by Crowley in Liber Aleph, ch. 16 (de Culte) would also be a Daily Feast and might even be considered a type of Feast to the Joy of Had. The only feast not mentioned thus far has been the Feast of Tahuti and the child of the Prophet which Crowley suggests is of a character fit only for initiates of the AA. Now depending on your reading of the verses in question one may look at the Daily Feasts as giving the magician license to celebrate anytime they wish and for any reason, and I certainly think this is true. The infinite energy and rapture of the Universe may compel individual Thelemites to this type of yoga both for their individual benefit as well as to the benefit of their brethren. By way of example, in 1995 æ.v. Frater Dionysos Thriambos created a set of Feasts that acknowledge the elemental presence of the cross-quarter dates as well, i.e., the middle of those zodiacal signs that represent the “Fixed” qualities of the elements. It is these signs (Leo [Fire], Aquarius [Air], Scorpio [Water] and Taurus [Earth]) that embody the further development and maturation of the elements. These Feast seem to serve as a middle ground between the rituals of the elements and the feasts of the times. Additionally, members of the Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica also celebrate the Greater Feasts of those souls whose works served as important antecedents to Thelema during the course of the Gnostic Mass. If one scans the liturgical calendar below you will find that the majority of the holidays mentioned therein are dedicated to the lives of the Gnostic Saints of the EGC. Veneration of these saints in the Roman Catholic sense of the word is generally not practiced. Instead a recognition of their work and efforts suffices. Sometimes this will be a light meal where their works are read and their life discussed. Sometimes it will be the skeleton by which a larger celebration serves as flesh and sinew.
