On the tip of the unconscious
the Magus links the depths and the heights.
The ego enters
taking his soul from eternity to a new cycle.
Delighted, he juggles his magical weapons
in the alchemical air of Mercury.
In the manifestation of the Magus curse
the Ape of Thoth shakes his fist
The snakes of life and death
intertwine about the caduceus and the sun disk.
The Magician intensifies the fog of the eternal
and creates his reality.
In the manifestation of time and space
his thought forms solidify into objects
sending ripples of energy to build a cradle of karma
rocking on the sea of his new life.
The Thoth Tarot was painted by Lady
Frieda Harris under the direction of Aleister Crowley, a magician of the
Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
