April 4
(ZAYIN, The Lovers, Gemini)
Liber LXV, Cap. II
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

The operation of Air. Reunification and completion through assimilation of the abominable. Embracing the rejected resurrects the immortal. Impenetrable focus. Ecstatic journey nowhere. Secret revelations, surrendering to Death or Shame or Love, defiled by the profane who perceive its manifestation as weakness or agony. Choose what you already have. Apply the proportional response. Uplifted, perform thy Will.
"But all we say and do, however casually, adds up to more, far more, than our most strenuous Operations. 'Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves.'" - Commentaries of AL

There is no end and no beginning,
Just a green serpent with it's tail in its mouth,
Wrapped around everything.
And when I feel the bite of its fangs
The venom makes me fall apart
And mourn another lost lover.
And when its scales slither across my skin
A shiver goes up my spine.
Even when I am lying
On a cold marble slab, alone,
Desire rouses me;
I want to be with you
The thought of your love
Inspires my courting song.
'Til death do us part.

The Marriage is initiated by Spirit and takes place in Y'sod.
It's not an "event", it's a process, with continuity of phases flowing into each other.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."
