As an Outer Adept they shine the light of their Sun toward the Earth, while an Inner Adept turns around and faces the infinite stars of Nuit and of BABALON. The avatar, according to Crowley, is the Balance between these roles. The avatar acts as a channel bringing Gnosis from Above to the Below. The receiver on Earth can be either female or male, claiming the title of a Scarlet Woman or the Beast. This masterfully kaleidoscopic new book carefully discloses the feminine formula in New-Aeonic Magick. What you do with your formula is your own business." NEW book.
