Tomorrow, December 1, is the Feast of Sir Aleister Crowley. If you are reading this blog, you probably already know about Crowley, but if not, the Invisible Basilica of Sabazius tells us he was: “English poet, painter, mountaineer, magician, and prophet, the physical vehicle of TO MEGA THERION. Head of A∴ A∴ and head of O.T.O. in the English-speaking world under Reuss, and Reuss’s successor as O.H.O of O.T.O. Crowley wrote Liber XV, the Gnostic Mass, in Russia in 1913 e.v. ” Born Edward Alexander Crowley in Warwickshire on 12 October 1875, he died 1 December 1947 at Netherwood.
