New Aeon of Horus

This article was written by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke on November 30, -0001
posted under New Aeon of Horus

Is this the same as “The New Age” or “The Age of Aquarius?” Perhaps yes, perhaps no. Crowley predicted the coming of the “New Aeon of Horus”  when Every Person is a Star moving by his own inner light and will. Sincere followers of Crowley would likely say there’s no connection. Astrologers are just as likely to say that the zodiacal entry into Aquarius has little connection to either, while maintaining that Aquarius does embody much that is claimed for the New Age and for the New Aeon.

My own inclination is to believe they are all manifestations of the same thing—that we are indeed in a New Age opening up opportunities for growth and development of the Whole Person. Maybe the astronomical/astrological precession triggers a more Aquarian perception in all of us, leaving behind what has been claimed as repressive in the Age of Pisces. And maybe this is the same as the New Aeon of Horus. Why not?

I believe we are in a new era (to substitute those three loaded concepts with a neutral word for purposes of discussion) in which there has been a shift of energies allowing more people to open up to new ideas and to respond to new ideas. And, yes, it is likely that the transition from Piscean to Aquarian energies facilitates this. Again: Why not?

Regardless, any study of history will demonstrate that we have more intellectual freedom and opportunity today than in any previous era we know anything about. Myth may claim that in some ancient past, perhaps in some Atlantean civilization, we had a similar situation that led to abuse of knowledge by the few to the detriment of all.

Crowley tells us that this new age brings us the freedom and the impetus—a “call” urging us to step ahead of external regimentation. Individually, we have to make the effort while the energies of the age make it possible to succeed. Magick is no longer for the few, the elite priesthood of the secret lodge, but for everybody who makes the effort. Magick is the technology for self-transformation and self-empowerment. Every Man and every woman can become a Star by employing the esoteric technology now available to everyone.

Myth always contains some kind of truth, and perhaps this warns us of needs for awareness of potential hazards as more people are enabled to develop their psychic powers and to more easily gain deeper understanding of the human psyche and of quantum theory.

 

Sensitive people have gotten a bum rap. We live in a world that doesn't embrace the values of sensitivity, so we get told that we are weak, unusual, touchy, and hard to please. The sad truth is that we hear these messages in many ways throughout our lives. Even if it is from a well-meaning teacher or parent who tries to "toughen us up," the crux... read this article
