Our Lady of the Stars


In the Thelemic cosmology of the Ordo Templi Orientis this is a reference to the Egyptian goddess Nuit, the sky goddess whose body formed the heavens while her hands and feet touched the earth. Aleister Crowley applied this term to the goddess who he saw in the stele 666 at the Boulak Museum in Cairo. Along with her were Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. A.G.H
