Liber LXV, Cap. I, v. 57-58

57. Then was the Adept glad, and lifted his arm.
Lo! an earthquake, and plague, and terror on the earth!
A casting down of them that sate in high places; a famine upon the multitude!
58. And the grape fell ripe and rich into his mouth.
"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 Adept does her best, and just acts according to her understanding of True Will. This may take trial and error - and may seem like chaos to the uninitiated even when totally on the mark - but this is the path of fulfillment for the Adept. She cannot wait to have perfect understanding before acting.

Acting according to True Will also destabilizes that which isn't built correctly; Assiah trembles in response to the Adept's action.
The Sun, strength & sight, light.

The Adept acts (lifting the arm brings image of ATU I, Magus, to mind). For the Earth, the effect of this is destructive, shaking the existing structures (Mars), for the Adept the experience is rapturous pleasure (Jupiter).
