Is the Gnostic Mass a IX° Magical Ritual?

by Entelecheia Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.  Bishops Lon and Constance DuQuette believe that Liber XV: Ecclesiæ Gnostiæ Catholicæ Canon Missæ (the Gnostic Mass) is best understood as the ritualized enactment of Ordo Templi Orientis’s (O.T.O.’s) supreme secret of magick. They have popularized this interpretation in

Now I Know Why They Say To Keep Silent

Now I Know Why They Say To Keep Silent by selki girl

by selki girl Late Registration I’ve owed Thelemic Union this piece for over a year. Technically speaking, I wouldn’t even qualify myself as a Thelemite proper. By definition, I’m a relative outsider to your world. As far as credentials go, I get along with a handful of Thelemites on twitter who appear to

Crowley and Evola: Comparisons and Parallels

Crowley and Evola: Comparisons and Parallels

by Vincent St. Clare I enjoy “rambling” on comparisons and parallels between various thinkers; in particular I like to compare Aleister Crowley to his contemporaries, and compare their respective ideas—though I’ve never put these comparisons (and correlations) into text before now. In this essay I intend to do just those things,

3 Definitions of True Will in Thelema

3 Definitions of True Will in Thelema

by IAO131 Although there are many disagreements, virtually all Thelemites recognize the centrality of True Will to the system of Thelema. Doing your Will is the "whole of the Law", there is "no law beyond" it, and you have "no right but to do" it. What is "it"? What exactly is

A Woman of Color in Thelema

by Kelly N. AKA Keanu Tease Not guilty. I’m not shocked.  I’m upset.  I’m crying.  But I’m not shocked.  This trial was a joke from start to finish.  Murder is legal in the United States apparently, but only if you have the correct skin tone.  It’s over 400 years of systemic oppression

What is Consensus Thelema?

Consensus Thelema

by Entelecheia Consensus Thelema is hard to define. It is nebulous by nature. But it also tends to disguise itself as its opposite: lack of consensus, radical individualism, creative self-expression, iconoclasm, and an uncompromising advocacy of non-conformity. It’s like a force field that permeates the Thelemic community. It’s conspicuous when you

If Aleister Crowley wants to be Priestess, he should write his own ritual

If Aleister Crowley wants to be Priestess, he should write his own ritual

by Soror Puella Dux This article is referring to OTO's decision to limit the Gnostic Mass roles to certain genders (Priest must be male, Priestess must be female), a gender essentialist position which also relegates non-binary individuals to the Deacon Sacerdote position. And yes, this article is satire. Thelema is all about

The Multiplicity of Thelemas

The Multiplicity of Thelemas

by Vincent St. Clare I’ve been accused a few times of trying to turn Thelema into something it’s not, of attempting to somehow create for myself a type of Thelema that fits my own version of how this philosophy and spiritual path should operate. While I’ll concede that I’ve come to
