Subject: Aleister Crowley's Scorecard
Date: 9 Sep 2002 19:12:40 -0000


Aleister Crowley scored only 10 for 22--under 46% accuracy--
by his proper identification of 10 major arcana trumps with
their corresponding planet or planetary ensign. In so doing,
the estimable Mr. Crowley misidentified the correspondences
of 12 planets/planetary ensigns out of 22 trump cards. See?

The chart below compares proper identification on the left
with Aleister Crowley's 10 hits and 12 misses on the right:

IN CONCLUSION, *Crowley wasn't even half-right, whereas
he was more than do what thou wilt, etc.

*Edward Alexander Crowley was born at 36 Clarendon Square
 in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England, some say about
 half an hour before midnight Oct 12, 1875 (approximated).

 With Uranus on the Ascendant, his birthtime is rectified
 to about 12:45 AM Oct 13, 1875 with Sun 5 Ven, Mer 6 Jup,
 Mars 8, Sat 9, Moo 10, Nep 11, Plu 12, Uranus soul-journ.
 Aleister Crowley was an extremist--if ever there was one!
 Uranus is the sphere of extremes, very good, or very bad.
 We see Crowley was a lot of both, tending toward the bad
 by a factor of 54% bad to 46% good or more bad than good.
