Aleister Crowley is best known under his monikers of “The Wickedest Man in the World” or “The Beast 666,” (from Aleister Crowley’s Book 4) but his influence goes much deeper than that. The influence that I’m speaking of is with the entertainment industry which sends subliminal messaging and guidance to the masses that watch the films and listen to the music of those who fell under Crowley’s spells of black magick (Crowley spells magick with the “k” to differentiate it with the false stage magic). Crowley is responsible for the modern day popularity with evil and the occult, as is evident by the plethora of symbolism I point out in the entertainment industry (e.g. all seeing eye, sign of the horns, clothing, music videos, movie posters, etc.).
Crowley was born in 1875 as Edward Crowley but changed his name to Aleister because it followed a formula for fame. This same formula can be applied to determine musicians’ stage names. The formula (from The Confessions of Aleister Crowley; An Autobiography). The formula is referred to as a dactylic hexameter (a concept from poetry and rhythm; which only makes sense it would follow in the music industry) and is a long syllable followed by two short syllables. Crowley’s second name consists of two spondees which are two long syllables. Another example of this concept would be Anthony Kiedis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who are no strangers to Crowley seeing as how they have an album entitled Blood Sugar Sex Magick which has obvious occult references to sex magick.
Crowley’s father was a Christian, which may have planted the seed of rebellious evil, since Aleister sought to push forth wickedness and evil since his childhood. He sacrificed a cat when he was twelve, and continued to slaughter animals including a black mass with a toad, and would eventually graduate to higher forms of sacrifice, including rumors of an actual human sacrifice in the form of a baby while he was in Sicily at his “Abbey of Theleme.”
Crowley inherited his father’s brewing wealth and attended Cambridge University and found pleasures in some forbidden homosexual (and heterosexual) activities. After his stint at college he further pursued his interest in alchemy and the occult, joining the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, which performed magic and drug rituals. The Golden Dawn’s three founders were Freemasons, and their masonic influence is present in Golden Dawn because it follows a similar initiation and hierarchy before gaining any true insider knowledge. Crowley identified himself as a Freemason, and followed the teachings which were based on the Kabbalah, astrology, tarot and geomancy. Golden Dawn temples were established in London, Scotland, and Paris; all key points of interest for Illuminati rituals (and Golden Dawn references are still seen to this day in videos such as those by Ciara):
It should also be noted that Crowley spent time with other alleged Illuminati types such as dining with Aldous Huxley in 1930. Huxley was connected to the Fabian Society alongside George Orwell, who both have ties to the C.I.A. and the Mockingbird operation they performed, as mentioned in Chapter 3 of my book, A Grand Unified Conspiracy Theory: The Illuminati, Ancient Aliens, and Pop Culture:
noneThe Mockingbird op funded the Hollywood film Animal Farm which was based on George Orwell’s book of the same name that was a warning about Communism. Orwell also wrote 1984 which is the totalitarian warning novel about a dreary future of big brother government. Orwell was rumored to be a member of the British socialist group, the Fabian Society (along with Aldous Huxley- writer of Brave New World). Operation Mockingbird had its tentacles ensnared in various affairs throughout the world (e.g. overthrowing foreign governments) and it would use Hollywood and the entertainment industry to manipulate the population in order to stay on track with the Illuminati agenda.
Continuing his dabbling into occult and magick rituals, in 1899 he bought the Boleskine House at the Loch Ness in Scotland in which to perform intense séances in order to communicate with the dead. He would perform Abraham Magick in order to invoke angelic spirits and make them evil, dark forces. This Loch Ness is the same body of water in the Scottish Highlands that the creature ‘Nessy’ is rumored to inhabit, leading me to wonder if it isn’t some kind of primeval creature, or a reflection of the dark energy that is still there. This Loch Ness is the same body of water in the Scottish Highlands that the creature ‘Nessy’ is rumored to inhabit, leading me to wonder if it isn’t some kind of primeval creature. The Boleskine house had all of the properties that Crowley found necessary to perform magick rituals because it is a focal point of energy. The sand surrounding it allowed him to see the foot prints of the beasts he would invoke. The house itself was named after the Babylonian Ba’al; who the Canaanites sacrificed children to in the Bible, who is the same entity that we see symbolized with the devil horns (aka Moloch). This figure (Ba’al, is short for Baal Zebub, or Beelzebub; the Devil) is the same entity that is provided with sacrifices to this day at the Bohemian Grove Cremation of Care ceremonies.
Residents of the area where Boleskine was located reported seeing demons around the property and the Devil skipping across the lawn. Two workers at the house committed suicide while working at the estate. Crowley sent a check to a butcher with some demonic names scrawled across it and the butcher was so terrified that he lost control of a knife and severed his own artery and died from the accident. Jimmy Page from the rock band Led Zeppelin would later buy the house because of his fondness of Crowley and the occult, and would go on to say that he saw a severed floating head on the property as well. People believe that Crowley never properly finished the rituals and the spirits are still roaming about the house
So what did Crowley do that was so special for the occult and the worship of evil? It started with his founding of the Thelema religion.
Crowley was always a prominent member of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), and introduced homosexual sex magick initiations for high degree members. He was promoted through the ranks very quickly because of his ritual experience and contacts made with the spiritual world in Egypt. Shortly after buying the Boleskine estate, Crowley and his wife spent time doing rituals in Egypt and believed they communicated directly with the Egyptian god Horus.
A few weeks later he was contacted by his Holy Guardian Angel named Aiwass (“Aiwass means “Lucifer” in Gnostic terms) while in Egypt, who dictated to him the document that would later form the Thelema religion, The Book of the Law.This book is where Crowley discusses the “Aeon of Horus,” a time in which the people will ”Do what thou wilt” (reinforcing the concept of freedom).
Followers should seek and follow their own true path in life, and following their “True Will” and fulfilling any desires or purpose of life without the aid of God or authority. To find your “True Will” you should perform magick. The magick and rituals help find this True Will and include daily sun devotions, yoga, and sexual activities such as Tantric sex.
Crowley believed that Horus wanted him to be the prophet that was to inform the human race of the entrance into this Aeon of Horus era, ushering in the 20th century. Thelema religion says human history can be divided into eras of different magical and religious expressions. The first era was the Aeon of Isis; the second was Aeon of Osiris, and the third is the Aeon of Horus (what we’re experiencing now; since Crowley’s introduction into it). Here’s where we can see the tie-in between the Ancient Egyptians, the occult, and the modern day “Illuminati”:
noneAeon of Isis: This was known as the era of Goddess worship (e.g. Egyptian goddess Isis). The emphasis at this time period was on matriarchal values, and the balance of human nature.
Aeon of Osiris: This occurred during the medieval times with male god worship (e.g. Egyptian god Osiris). The emphasis during this time was on patriarchy and male dominated values.
Aeon of Horus: This is the modern time with child god worship (e.g. Egyptian god Horus).
This current Aeon of Horus that Crowley believed he was intended to usher in is why we see the musicians doing the symbol for the all seeing eye, or the Eye of Horus (on the US Seal on the dollar bill pyramid). This symbol for the eye is found in Freemasonry as the Eye of Providence as well.
After more successful rituals all over the world, Crowley created yet another magical order called the Argenteum Astrum (aka Silver Star, or A. A.) and proceeded to write books for the remainder of his life. At one point he and his followers setup a ritual center in Sicily called the Abbey of Theleme, which became so notorious for brutal sacrifices and black masses that Mussolini felt the need to kick them out of the country.
Followers of Crowley identify themselves as Thelemites, and may practice more than one religion; e.g. Wicca, Gnosticism, and Satanism (similar to the reason the Freemasons don’t identify themselves as one religion). They may also be members of more than one magick/occult organization such as the A.A., OTO, or Golden Dawn.
Crowley had a goal of battling Christianity with black magick, and spent the final years of his life detailing how to perform black masses which include sacrificing animals and children. He wrote “A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim for use in the Mass” (which corresponds back to the sacrifice of children we saw with Ba’al earlier). His beliefs in the dark arts seemed to have plagued him over his whole life, as he went unsatisfied through multiple women and children who died very prematurely (see The Brotherhood of Evil chapter from The Secret History of Cults book):
Modern day black magicians don’t always believe in the Devil; instead they believe in the existence of a living force referred to as “evil.” The purpose of a devil figure (e.g. a goat, Baphomet, Moloch, etc.) is to represent this embodiment of evil. Crowley did his “duty” of ushering in this new era as the Aeon of Horus, and the influence is easily seen in the entertainment industry. Crowley’s message is that of freedom, and influenced rock mega stars such as David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin.
Other noted OTO members include Jack Parsons, a famous pioneer in rocket science. He led an American lodge of the OTO for Crowley and would chant Crowley hymns before test rocket launches. Parsons also performed his own sex magick ritual by wife-swapping with none other than Scientology religion founder L. Ron Hubbard.
These two made collaborations on music videos such asFranco’s band Daddy who made Love in the Old Days which features an occult ritual. There was also an actual ritual that took place in Los Angeles with Kenneth Anger, James Franco, and Noot Seear from the Twilight film.
The album cover of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Clubs Band features Crowley in the background as well:
The back of The Doors’ album entitled 13:
Ozzy Osbourne has the song entitled Mr. Crowley on his album Blizzard of Oz:
As mentioned before, Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin bought the Boleskin House that Crowley performed rituals in, and this same house can be seen in the Led Zeppelin film Song Remains the Same:
Bruce Dickinson from the heavy metal band Iron Maiden wrote a screenplay for a film called “Crowley”:
During the Second World War, future James Bond authorIan Fleming (then a Navy intelligence officer) along with other colleagues proposed a disinformation plot in which Crowley would have helped an MI5 agent supply Naziofficial Rudolf Hess with faked horoscopes. They could then pass along false information about an alleged pro-German circle in Britain. The government abandoned this plan when Hess flew to Scotland, crashing his plane on the moors near Eaglesham, and was captured. Fleming then suggested using Crowley as an interrogator to determine the influence of astrology on other Nazi leaders, but his superiors rejected this plan. At some point, Fleming also suggested that Britain could use Enochian as a code in order to plant evidence
What I find most interesting about all of this, is that the Aeon of Horus that Crowley prophesied about is coming through in the entertainment industry through their use of the symbolism of the one eye and also the rising popularity of younger aged stars which supports the worship of children as gods found in the Aeon of Horus. Acts such as Justin Bieber,Miley Cyrus, and Willow Smith are all common household names, and this isn’t without reason. The entertainment industry is riddled with occult worshippers and Crowley followers embedded in groups such as Freemasonry, OTO, Thelema, A.:A.:, etc. and the evidence is all around us.
Here’s a documentary about Crowley called Masters of Darkness:
