This Saturday, August 12, was the 120th Feast for the First Night of the Prophet and his Bride. Rose [Edith Kelly] and Aleister Crowley married on August 12 1903, allowing her to escape an arranged marriage. This marriage, first of convenience, led to what would turn out to be one of the most important events in Crowley’s life — the writing of the Book of the Law. Rose and Aleister had two children, Nuit Ma Ahathoor Hecate Sappho Lilith (born 1904, died 1906) and Lola Zaza (born 1906). Rose and Aleister divorced in 1909.
