I am also puzzled why no one has worked with or explained the Atus of Tahuti, wheras quite a considerable tradition of interpretation lkber developed aroud the Prisons of the Qliphoth.
Liber Arcanorum, Part I
Plenty have worked with the Qlipoth, but what of the Atus of poor Thoth? I have scoured the field as well trying to locate more on this, but alas it would seem there is scare information available. There is a chance that much has been communicated regarding this in Waratah Number Two: Oceanic Currents [this publication arrcanorum mentioned in an earlier article on this site] recently published by House in Australia:.
I have yet to see this — though I have ordered a copy- and will be happy to let you know if I discover anything of significance in this regard. Ofcourse one could always submit to personal research to unveil the keys of the text — as in scrying or pathworkings. I think I know the answer to this one but it would be useful to see it confirmed. But did he mean this or did he mean something nearer to an Arab Djinn, the geni in the bottle of the Arabian nights?
Is the book, as I supect, about the reception of the Atus of the Tarot. Was this deliberate on his part? Is this the mapping of the Tree of Death onto the Tree of Life, or does it have another function? All this might seem like scholarly nit picking were it not for the great significance LIber and its interpretations have had for the development of Thelema in the second half or the twentieth century.
Maybe a wheel with 22 compartments on the rim.
Liber Liber Arcanorum by Aleister Crowley
The wheel has 8 spokes. At the 4 corners are the 4 Kerubim [sketch with Aquarius, Scorpio, Taurus, Leo clockwise arcajorum top left]. This is my very imperfect attempt at translating the title with the help of an online Latin Dictionary.
Thus the updated translation is:. They are guides to conduct. The Book of the Prisons of the Qliphoth with their arcanlrum or djinn to which is added their sigils and their names.
It is important to note that Crowley did not list in the qliphoth themselves. He does this in an orthodox way in Liber and comments upon them in page 58 of that book.
Having said the above I am still puzzled by just as I was some months ago. Carcer is a prison in Latin. Each Qliphoth has a prison. Does that mean that the atu were places, at least on a spiritual map? I think that what Crowley says above shows that he would have been open to that meaning. Thank-you for the enlightening comment and translation. It makes sense to me that the Atus are spiritual places — perhaps stations in the Land of the Dead.
Or to interject a Tibetan word, Bardo Stations. Why are they in the same book? Perhaps the Atus are keys to open these prisons?? A house is where we live by our own choice, a prison cell is where we live without that choice. Yet, my own experience of the Qlipoth is that, far from being imprisoned, they are almost TOO free, in the sense that they are formless, too much energy, an excess, undifferentiated, while the Mercurial spirits of the Tarot are the same energy compressed and restrained lober a particular form.
Practically the opposite concept, in fact. If I find time later I might annoy you all with a new topic asking for translations of all the Holy Book titles. I just wanted to say how grateful I am for the thoughtful contributions to the discussion regarding this most enigmatic of the Holy Books. Given the name of the Holy Book, the following quote is instructive: Without it all is cold, inertia, death; within it Fire, Energy, Genius, Creation.
Does anybody know whether Liber was ever translated into German? Viewing 15 posts – 1 through 15 of 25 total. May 8, at 9: Can anyone enlighten me further?
