Thelemic Seasonal Holy Day Wall Calendar is a crowdfunding effort from Knights Templar, a local body of O.T.O. in the Valley of Salem, MA, which may be of interest.
The campaign will “raise the money needed to print and sell a full-size ‘Thelemic Seasonal Holy Day Wall Calendar’ showcasing Thelemic artists; filled with the Holy Days, the Feast Days for the Gnostic Saints, etc., as well as the Moon Signs and Phases.” The calendar itself is designed to run from March 2014 – March 2015 so it is particularly timely right now. The art is by a number of artists you may recognize including frequent Hermetic Library visual pool contributor Marjan Ŝetar as well as Kat Lunoe and the late John “Snakedaddy” Hanley, to mention only a few.
“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
For three years now I have wanted to create a professionally printed, full-size, ultimate “Thelemic Seasonal Holy Day Wall Calendar”, filled with the specifically listed Liber AL Holy Days, the Solstices and Equinoxes, the Cross-quarter days, the Feast Days for the Gnostic Saints, etc., as well as providing the always useful Moon Sign and Phase information.
Furthermore, my goal has been to showcase Thelemic artists (preferably Sisters and Brothers of the O.T.O.) by complementing each of the 13 months (from March to March, Aries to Aries) with beautiful Thelemic art appropriate to its Holy Days.
It is my belief and hope that this publishing project can and will be a significant contribution to Thelemic culture. Everyone who has looked at it seems to agree.
I have thus far received approval from all of the artists whose work I selected for the calendar, including:
· Sister Cathryn Orchard (now Crane) of Ouarda Arts in the UK
· Brother Nathan Hopkins and Brother Mitchell Nolte of the Collective 777 Art Guild in Australia
· Marjan Ŝetar in Slovenia
· Kat Lunoe, John “Snakedaddy” Hanley, Michele Witchipoo, Nick “The Barbarian” Kelley, and others here in the US
They have all given permission, and each one indicated their excitement and enthusiasm for the potential of this project.
Apart from a little final editing, the design phase of the project is complete, it can be ready to go to the printers in a week or less. What we need now is the funds to make it happen! Our goal of $500 will ensure a 50-print run, so we can begin getting this out into the Thelemic community.
I am now very optimistic that, with your assistance, we can have this project completed and made available to the larger O.T.O. and Thelemic community in time for the Equinox!
My true goal here personally is to get this calendar out to as much of the larger O.T.O. and Thelemic community as possible, and then to turn around and focus on doing a bigger and better job at producing the next year’s calendar. But whatever money we make over and above production costs will go into the Knights Templar Oasis treasury, where it is desperately needed!
So check out the Gallery above, and give what you can! $25 gets you your own copy of the Calendar! Thank you all SO much for your support!
Love is the law, love under will.
