This community was created for one purpose: to discuss the life, times and work of Aleister Crowley. For those who never heard of this man, Crowley was born Edward Alexander Crowley(he later changed his name to Aleister) on October 12, 1875 and died December 1st, 1947. Crowley was many things: chess master, mountain climber, poet, writer, painter, social critic, occultist, mystic, astrologer, sexual revolutionary and, above all else, a master magician.
While I know and very much enjoy the Thelemic communities here on LJ, I notice that there aren't many soley dedicated to the Magus himself. Thus I decided to create one. Feel free to talk about his life, his works, Thelema(hard to discuss Crowley without it) and his influence on society and yourself.
