Spirits of Aleister Crowley's Illustrated Goetia

Purson


Rank: King
Degree: 10 - 20
Zodiac sign: Libra (day October 3 - October 12)
Tarot: Three of Swords
Alchemical sign: Sol - Gold

Purson is the Twentieth Spirit, and a Great King. He appears as a comely man with a lion's face carrying a cruel viper in his hand and riding upon a bear. Going before him are many trumpets sounding. He knows all things hidden, can discover treasure, and can tell all things past, present, and to come. He can take either a human or aerial body and answers truthfully all questions of an Earthly nature both secret and Divine, and of the creation of the world. He brings good Familiars, and he governs 22 Legions of Spirits, partly of the Order of Virtues and partly of the Order of Thrones.
