The Tarot Upon The Tree

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

Building upon the previous event on the basics of the Hermetic Tree of Life we next examined the tarot associations upon the Tree- placing directly on it the cards for each sephira and path and examining the nuances of the other elemental and planetary associations on the cards to their location. It is highly recommended that the student re-creates for themselves such a tree for study; there truly is a wealth of hidden knowledge there for those that dare to seek! 🙂

Thank you to those that took part in this wonderful event and join us next time for a workshop highlighting the middle-pillar.

Love is the law, love under will.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

The Tree of Life, or etz chaim, is a complex system of attributions said to be a cosmology and a representation of the macrocosm, or the outside world, and the microcosm, the inner world. There is much debate when and how this system was “received”, (kabbalah), but it is studied and used by people of various beliefs and backgrounds. There are several representations of the etz chaim, and the one studied in our first meetup was the

“A feast for the three days of the writing of the Book of the Law.”

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

The Book of the Law, or, Liber AL vel Legis sub figura CCXX, is the central text of Thelema and of the Ordo Templi Orientis as it exists now. One of the “rituals of the elements and feasts of the times.” is “[a] feast for the three days of the writing of the Book of the Law.” As the “rituals shall be half known and half concealed […]”, this year the Daughter of Sunset O.T.O hosted this Feast by having a public reading of each chapter of the Book of the Law on April 8th, 9th and 10th at 1pm- the time and days of it’s original writing in 1904. Incense and candles were lit and many arrived with copies of the Book of the Law to read the chapter in unison. Feasting and merriment followed. 🙂

Thank you to all who celebrated this text with the Daughter of Sunset and to those who have, do and will celebrate it, together or alone- and may it continue to illuminate you forevermore.

Love is the law, love under will.

Lon Milo DuQuette Speaks In Vancouver!

Author and Mystic Brother Lon Milo DuQuette is coming to our fair city June 2nd to 5th.

“In the dark and brooding firmament of occult literature and media, Lon Milo DuQuette is a star of unique and exceptional brilliance. Although he takes the subjects of Magick, Qabalah and the Western spiritual traditions very seriously, he tries to remember not to take himself too seriously. This rare combination of common sense and self-effacing humor has in the last 15 years secured him a unique and highly respected position in the world of esoteric literature. Hailed by critics as the most entertaining author in the field. His style has been compared to that of Mark Twain and Robert Benchley. His books, seminars and radio and television appearances evoke from his audiences a curious mixture of laughter, terror, and wonderment.”

Daughter of Sunset Oasis is happy to sponsor and support this event being held at various locations locally.
