Tomorrow, September 13, is the Feast of Dame Leila Waddell, a violinist and famed Scarlet Woman of Aleister Crowley, a powerful historical figure in magick and Thelema in her own right. Waddell starred in the Rites of Eleusis at London’s Caxton Hall. She was a muse to Crowley, inspiring poems like “Duck Billed Platypus” and “Waratah Blossoms.” In April 1999, she was inducted into the Order of the Eagle.
