Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. 

"The time is just ripe for a natural religion. People like rites and ceremonies, and they are tired of hypothetical gods. Insist on the real benefits of the Sun, the Mother-force, the Father-force, and so on, and show that by celebrating these benefits worthily the worshippers unite themselves more fully with the current of life. Let the religion be Joy, but with a worthy and dignified sorrow in death itself, and treat death as an ordeal, an initiation… In short, be the founder of a new and greater Pagan cult." 

-Aleister Crowley, in a letter to C.S. Jones, 1914

NOXVLVXON hosts public community feasts for all interested people, and their family and friends. Many feasts are accompanied by a dramatic ritual such as the Invocation of Horus at the Spring Equinox, or the Invocation of Bacchus at the Winter Solstice, and volunteer participation is welcome and encouraged. Most feasts are potluck unless otherwise indicated, so please bring a favorite seasonal food or drink to share. You need not be an initiate member of O.T.O. to celebrate with us, and attending these events is a great introduction to the O.T.O. Be sure to check out our Calendar and Meetup pages, like us on Facebook, or feel free to email the Body Master or Secretary with any questions about our events. We look forward to celebrating Life with you and your loved ones.

The following information on our Holy Days comes from the U.S. Grand Lodge website: 

Thelemic Holy Days


The official holy days of Thelema are set forth in The Book of the LawCh. II, v. 36-41. The specific dates attributed to them are given in Crowley’s commentaries, and are summarized below:
  • The Rituals of the Elements and Feasts of the Times are observed at the Equinoxes and Solstices.
  • The Feast for the First Night of the Prophet and His Bride is observed on August 12.
  • The Feast for the Three Days of the Writing of the Book of the Law is observed on April 8, 9 and 10, beginning at noon on each day.
  • The Feast for the Supreme Ritual (the Invocation of Horus) is observed on March 20.
  • The Feast for the Equinox of the Gods is held on the northern-hemisphere Vernal Equinox of each year to commemorate the founding of Thelema in 1904. It marks the beginning of the Thelemic year.

Three points of passage in the life of each Thelemite are observed. Birth is celebrated in a Feast for Life; puberty is celebrated in a Feast for Fire (for a boy), or a Feast for Water (for a girl); and the death of the individual is commemorated in a Greater Feast for Death.

Various anniversaries commemorating major events and figures in the history of Thelema and O.T.O. are also celebrated informally by some Thelemic groups.
