20 The Aeon – Tarot card meanings and description


20th or 21st card of the sequence is Aeon,
or usually better known as judgment if you have the Rider-Waite deck. The Last Judgment.
Crowley has changed it all. He has the letter Shin which refers to fire or spirit. Again
we have this idea that the precession of the equinoxes take us into the New Age as well.
he says around the top of the card is the body of Nuith the Star Goddess. We have already
had her in other cards. And he also talks about how Heru Ra ha also appears in the Sun
card. So it about a double god, Ra Hoor Khuit, and Hoor Pa Kraat, which is about the formula
of the Tetragrammaton, which I have alluded to but we have actually gone into. first of
all in the Fool card. He says the whole of this symbolism is thoroughly explained in
the Book of the Law. He also says that the name Heru is identical with Hru, who is the
great Angel set over the Tarot. This new Tarot may therefore be regarded as a series of illustrations
to the Book of the Law; the doctrine of that Book is everywhere implicit. If you didn’t
know this is very much the Thoth tarot is to do with The Book of Law, but in kind of
another way. Its not apart from the way he quotes chapters and verses in the cards, it
is not as simple I think. Again we have this whole idea of. He says the interesting verse
from the Book of the Law. I am the Lord of the Double Wand of Power; the wand of the
Force of Coph Nia; but my left hand is empty, for I have crushed an Universe and Nought
remains. There are echoes of the Star card in there. The water is poured, and nought
remains, which takes us back to the Fool card. What is the mnemonic for the Aeon card? He
says, Nuit, Hadit, Ra hoor Khuit, the Aeon of the divine child exalt oh Empyrean. Now
the double cards are something he explores at length in the Fool card which I haven’t
touched upon because it is 16 pages, too much to go into. These videos on the Major arcana
are getting to be long as it is. And actually by the looks of things, this may well be,
it is such an important card, it is actually a shorter card in time than many of the others.
I am obviously not doing it justice! What does he say about the Aeon card? Be every
act an act of love and worship. Be every act the fiat of a God. be every act a source of
radiant glory. There is nothing about the transformation you kind of get with the traditional
last judgment card. As far as interpretation goes he says, final decision in respect of
the past, new current in respect of the future; always represents the taking of a definite
step. You are not going to shillyshally about on this one. Now, in this whistle stop tour
of the Major Arcana we come to the final card, card 21, the 22nd card, which is of course
the Universe, known as the World in the Rider-Waite deck.
