A Tarot card. Known as The Last Judgement in some decks. Aleister Crowley, in contrast, named it Aeon because of his New Age beliefs.


Rider Waite deck

Very clearly, it is modeled after the Christian Resurrection before the Last Judgment. An angel, possibly Gabriel, is depicted blowing a great trumpet, from which hangs a white flag bearing a red cross, most likely the St George's Cross. A group of humans (man, woman, and child) of grayish complexion stand, arms spread, looking up at the angel in awe. The people are apparently emerging from crypts or graves. There are huge mountains or tidal waves in the background, which almost seem like glaciers as they are so white and blue. These may be a reference to the sea giving up its dead on the day of judgment, as described in the Book of Revelation.

  • Links Hod to Malkuth as path number 31 of the Tree of Life
  • Yetziratic Intelligence - the Perpetual intelligence
  • Organic Time - The Information Crisis The end of the Twentieth Century isn't so much marked by an event as much as the slow sweep of individual searches for growth. This awakening of the human collective's elements is forced upon us by the eradication of nearly all limits to definition and calls on us to judge ourselves in this new reality to give us a sense of reason in our single life's scale and then through the scale of the whole universal procession.
