Commentary to the 29th Æthyr:

1. l i i = ססק = 220. The Number of Verses in the Book of the Law; and this book brings about the disruption described in this Æthyr.

2. In the East. He thus represents the immediate future; and this is dark, bewildering, and terrifying.  

3. e. This is the Beast 666, as yet unprepared for His Work. But already (1900 e.v.) He was dreaded by His Fellow Magicians. South: proper place of A in his strength. 

4. The Bull is Osiris or Jesus; he complains of the terrible things that are happening, especially the Freedom (which he thinks shamelessness) of Woman. He does not understand the New Æon, or that he is about to be destroyed. He is in the West, i.e. going into Oblivion. Cf. West in the 30th Æthyr (note 9.)

5. The severest aspect of Justice - Libra. 

6. Nuit. 

7. The LVX Cross hidden in the Swastika is probably the Arcanum here connoted. This Cross on Mars square adds to 65 = Adonai (אדני); Shone, gloried = הלל; The Palace = היכל; Keep silent = הס. Swastika itself adds to 231 = 0 + 1 + 2 + ... + 21, the 21 Keys. The cubical Swastika regarded as composed of this LVX Cross and the arms has a total of 78 faces - Tarot and Mezla.  

8. [Lat., “Light in light, Christ in the Cross; with God the eternal leader.”]

This is but the beginning of a sort of hymn. It was never written down, the Seer being unable to hear it properly. These four lines are in fact probably incorrect, and certainly incomplete. There were four more lines which he failed to hear - from fear of getting them wrong. [These highly problematical Latin phrases are deleted in the MS: “Multio laudis / Coram claudis / Milu cordis / A Deo.”]

9. [Lat., “forever and ever.”]

10. Daleth = The Gateway. [Crowley’s source was the Alphabet of the Passing of the River in Agrippa, Three Books of Occult Philosophy, book III, chap. 30, where the daleth differs from that give above; see also Francis Barrett, The Magus, book II, chap. 16. It was used in the MS, which reads “an extremely brilliant ד in the Character d of the Passing of the River.” The earliest source for this alphabet is Johannes Trithemius, Polygraphia.] 

11. [The day of the week was blank in the first edition, and mistakenly given as D (Friday) in the MS. Crowley was unsure of the exact date.]
