thunderbolt may relate to the adjacent Tower Struck By 
Lightning/War/House of God--Trump XVI. this seems to 
imply that the *Star*'s virgin emanates the lightning 
in XVI and therefore is located at XVII (pre-AC-SWITCH) 
(as this proceeds backwards through the Trumps).

# The Pentagram/ alchemical elements to Aquarius?

pentagram? more often associated with Crowley that Star is
a septagram, GD has it surrounded by the visible 7 Planets.
doesn't Smith-Waite and Harris-Crowley each have septagram
in at least the center?

that's not half (okay, maybe half, but no more!) as interesting as 
getting the order wrong, as I pointed out in previous message (quoted 
below, in your reply).

True, true. One might call this and other instances re: Tzaddi and Heh, 
/purposeful/ ambiguity.
Additional ambiguity is frustratingly added by the title in Heh line: 
'Liber V?!' Is this easily confused with liber reguli, and/or liber 
manus et sagittae, or what? I find it frankly difficult to imagine this 
isn't purposeful. HB says Liber V might be Liber 831 method II (this 
liber, as with so many others also has numerous confusing alternate 
titles, noted in the Big Blue Brick's editorial comments). And 'Liber 
...' under Kaph? What's dot dot dot? 1139 under zain? Never seen or 
heard of it.

Strange shit...

presumably, if teth were to go with leo and lust/ strength and lamed

which argues most strongly for a /purposeful/ ambiguity (Librans are 
known for this type of eccentricity?) . beyond this, all is 
questionable, at least in my mind.

Eq. I:7, yup. page 101.

those intros are usually full of extremely valuable info. I like the 
recent (1996?) intro to AC's Tao te Ching (Liber CLVII), that's got some 
interesting backround info in the preface/ intro.

there is also, arguably, a certain awkwardness in placing the two 
swastikas so close together (the other being associated with the aleph 
path), as one could do, depending on how one read this whole thing.

but then again, nothing all too conclusive here. just fairly vague 
speculation so far.

i am no astrologer either, but the dominant imagery doesn't escape me. a 
classicist/ natural philosopher of our rank can make subtle judgement 
calls like this.  ;)
i would generally concur. elsewhere (graddum montis abieni) Liber 536 is 
also associated with this path via Liber XIII:
"He is given a meditation-practice on Expansion of Consciousness." 
(Liber XIII).

Presumably, this 'meditation-practice on expansion of consciousness' is 
Liber DXXXVI, titled Liber Batrachophrenobookosmomachia.

The gist of this book, of course, would generally fall under the aegis 
of the Water Bearer symbology, at least on a surface level.

Liber C is class D so, there wouldn't be much controversy there, right?

i can only guess at what you may be hinting at! maybe the imagery is 
echoed here, where the tzaddi-heh ambiguity iz played to full effect:

Liber VII, c. iv, v. 1, v. 55-9:
    1. I am like a maiden bathing in a clear pool of fresh water.


...
   55. I will be like a splendid naked woman with ivory breasts and 
golden nipples; my whole body shall be like the milk of the stars. I 
will be lustrous and Greek, a courtesan of Delos, of the unstable Isle.
   56. Thou shalt be like a little red worm on a hook.
   57. But thou and I will catch our fish alike.
   58. Then wilt thou be a shining fish with golden back and silver 
belly: I will be like a violent beautiful man, stronger than two score 
bulls, a man of the West bearing a great sack of precious jewels upon a 
staff that is greater than the axis of the all.
   59. And the fish shall be sacrificed to Thee and the strong man 
crucified for Me, and Thou and I will kiss, and atone for the wrong of 
the Beginning; yea, for the wrong of the beginning.

and in Liber VII, v. 5:
5. Only one fish-hook can draw me out; it is a woman kneeling by the 
bank of the stream. It is she that pours the bright dew over herself, 
and into the sand so that the river gushes forth.

after i marked up my crowley text for years i started marking up the
HBeta (et al) text just so I'd be clear and sure about whose scholarship/
word i was parroting.


Heh  ;)

p.s. regarding some more puzzling aspects of this liber 868: 'liber v' 
(see line under 4. or Heh) iz thought to refer to liber 831 method II, 
and 'liber xxv' (see line under 13. or Nun) iz thought to refer to liber 
831 method III. Liber 1139 is thought to not be extant, and finally 
Liber 73 is thought to refer to Confessions chapters 81-87 (source: 
Liber ABA Big Blue Book, editorial notes).

in case you'd like a pointer to 831:
http://www.hermetic.com/crowley/libers/lib831.html

curiously, teth is where lamed should be, and lamed is where teth should 
be if they were to follow a strictly numerical order (i.e. 400, 300, 
200, 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 
1): very coumfusing for the neophyte who hasn't yet memorized the hebrew 
alphabet! :)

not sure on the date on Liber 868?

which sigils belong to which, i wonder? the thunderbolt/ OBN to Aries? 
The Pentagram/ alchemical elements to Aquarius?

the tricky thing here, of course, is the 'class a' status of this one.

well, yes related attributionals and no Tarot. there *iz* thee path ov 
Tzaddi /pictured/ and obliquely referred to here and there:
http://www.hermetic.com/crowley/images/large-abiegnus.jpg

path of Tzaddi iz labelled 'meditation practice on the exapansion of 
consciousness:'
does this go with Aries or Aquarius in your book? neither? both?

neither teth or lamed are pictured, so we can leave them alone ;)

and what of Liber Tzaddi (the 'original' received 1911 ev) itself? You 
know the 'Book of the Secret Fishhook'? 
http://www.hermetic.com/crowley/libers/lib90.html

This book abounds in /Arian/ not Aquarian imagery for the most part.

By the way, I relied on H. Alpha's preface in The Holy Books (1983) for 
the dates given above.

Thanks for the reply, nigris/ 333.

(my empaphasis added in both cases, for clarity/ brevity)

/both/ electronic copies I have (one from hermetic.com) *curiously* 
differ (just the chapter digamma kappa) from the 1991 Weiser Liber Aleph 
versions I have, and read:


my comment to de viro: 'the Man' Kerub? Or 'the Man' Emperor? the 
context suggests the former certainly, but does not square very well /at 
all/ with previous attributions of Man Kerub to Aquarius, the Star, and 
Heh. that said, 333's way of reckoning things would find support in de 
viro, as far as i can tell.


>  Next, from the Father floweth the Power of the Emperor in the Path of the Ram, for Initiative, and Energy, and Determination.

commentary to liber 65 ch. 3, v. 58 (pg 131 in new Eq. volume)
commentary to liber 65 ch. 5, v. 65 (pg 219 in new Eq. volume)

these two above mention Aquarius, the Star, and Heh going together.

and since you bothered to reply to my query 333, i will add the obvious: 
Liber 418 is positively /riddled/ with inconsistencies in re: Tzaddi-Heh 
attributions. no way around it. and further is the Liber (besides 
possibly the Thothbook) that most /strongly/ exhibits inconsistencies in 
these tzaddi-heh attributions.

versions I have, and read:

 > Next, from the Father floweth the Power of the Emperor in the Path of 
 > the Ram, for Initiative, and Energy, and Determination.

my comment to de viro: 'the Man' Kerub? Or 'the Man' Emperor? the 
context suggests the former certainly, but does not square very well /at 
all/ with previous attributions of Man Kerub to Aquarius, the Star, and 
Heh. that said, 333's way of reckoning things would find support in de 
viro, as far as i can tell.

commentary to liber 65 ch. 3, v. 58 (pg 131 in new Eq. volume)
commentary to liber 65 ch. 5, v. 65 (pg 219 in new Eq. volume)

these two above mention Aquarius, the Star, and Heh going together.

and since you bothered to reply to my query 333, i will add the obvious: 
Liber 418 is positively /riddled/ with inconsistencies in re: Tzaddi-Heh 
attributions. no way around it. and further is the Liber (besides 
possibly the Thothbook) that most /strongly/ exhibits inconsistencies in 
these tzaddi-heh attributions.
