The Star

.

 She touches the longing in the depths of our being.

Star Goddess, archetype of the eternal feminine

shines spirals of light through the universe

with the spinning of her seven pointed star.

She pours the eternal, ethereal waters of life

nourishing the cosmos to create renewal.

Earth’s energy crystals urge us to bring forth

our cosmic selves to the universal plane

and follow our Star.

The Thoth Tarot was painted by Lady Frieda Harris under the direction of Aleister Crowley, a magician of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the most famous and influential occult order of modern times functioning until the middle part of the 20th century in London.  Other prominent members of the order who have passed on their knowledge through literature are Dion Fortune and Israel Regardie.  The teachings later found a revival on the West Coast of America based on the work of Regardie.

The deck contains kabbalistic and astrological attributions as described in Crowley’s “The Book of Thoth”.

    Very cosmic and all so very true. I also believe that in ancient times, long before Christianity came into being, women were equals to men. There were both Gods and Goddess’s and each played vital roles.
    This is lovely prose.

      You are so right. I am a Christian myself but believe that the true teachings of Jesus have been lost. Highjacked by the Roman Empire into a false patriachal system. We have come some way with women priests but the anglicans are still struggling with the concept of women bishops. Old fashioned prejudice still inhibits us.

    I can echo your comment to daydreamer, Tiger. This is stunning. I am familiar with Crowley and Fortune but have never heard of the Thoth…so much to learn. Lovely poetry.
