Crowley says of this card. "This is one of the simplest cards; it represents the Lord of the New Aeon, in his manifestation to the race of men as the Sun spiritual, moral, and physical. He is the Lord of Light, Life, Liberty and Love. This Aeon has for its purpose the complete emancipation of the human race."
And that is why I love this card - (usually I HATE this card in the RWS decks.) Freeing ourselves from outdated beliefs and moving ourselves upward and onward is such an awesome idea and that is this card! ..
As the Sun constantly regenerates so do we. At one time people thought the Sun died each night but now we know that isn't true. Sunlight is perpetual and Death is an illusion and the night will end with another day of Sun.
The twins on the card were the babies on the Fool card as well as the children/bride/groom on the Lovers. They represent the male and female, eternally young, shameless and innocent. They are dancing in the light, and yet they dwell upon the earth. They represent the next stage which is to be attained by mankind, in which complete freedom is alike the cause and the result of the new access of solar energy upon the earth. (BOT)
