Ra-Hoor-Khuit


Ra-Hoor-Khuit, in the Book of the Law by Aleister Crowley, is the manifestation of Horus of the Two Horizons. As the son of Isis and Osiris he became the warrior-slayer of Seth (Set) or Typhon, the serpent of the Nile. Crowley affirms that Horus in his many forms was the spiritual child of the former mother and father; the act of slaying his father's murderer is symbolic of destroying the former Aeon in which Christianity ruled and destroyed religions before it. Therefore Horus would rightly govern the new Aeon as the Crowned and Conquering Child; the Aeon that would put an end to the worshipping of death as Christianity demanded and worship the joining together the spiritual and material in Horus, the Child and the Future. A.G.H
