The Equinox


The Equinox

The Equinox (subtitle: "The Review of Scientific Illuminism") is a series of publications in book form that serves as the official organ of the A.'.A.'., the mystical order of Aleister Crowley (although material is often of import to its sister organization, Ordo Templi Orientis). Begun in 1909, it remains one of the definitive works on occultism and magick, while several issues also contain poetry, fiction, plays, artwork, and biographies. The last issue was published in 1998, although two new editions are currently being prepared for publication.

Publication History

Thelema"The Equinox" appeared semianually from the years 1909 through 1913. Volume II was never published, and vol. III:1 was the last in the regular serialized publications. After that, editions of the Equinox were published irregularly by various organizations and are best known for their book title. All issues after III:5 were edited and released after Crowley's death in 1947.
