The Gnostic Church of L.V.X.


Paul Joseph Rovelli

Let's start this our second issue, with a quote from this year's Geocosmic Magazine publishedby the National Council for Geocosmic Research. In their editorial, Frances M. McEvoy is talking aboutPluto's entry into Sagittarius: 

"Whenever Pluto is in a fire sign, and most particularly when it is in Sagittarius, there is a renewal ofgnosticism which insists that all religious experience be based on personal experience rather thandogma. Gnostics declare that sin is the ignorance of not knowing who one is, and of not experiencing God directly. It is the search for wisdom rather than belief that drives the Gnostic on his mysticalsearch for meaning.

"This issue also coincides with the formal announcement that we at the Scarlet Hoor haveincorporated the Gnostic Church of L.V.X. Foundation. We are a non-profit religious organizationdedicated to the nurturing of Gnosis in the human race. And I believe our timing is impeccable.We have also made alliances with the Holy Gnostic Catholic Church, the Universal Gnostic Church, the American Tarot Association, and or course, the Holy Order of Ra-Hoor-Khuit. And atpresent we are working on an alliance with the Eclipsian Order of Magickians founded by a group of Mensans. This fits well with the nature of this Pluto transit (to 2008ev). Again, quoting McEvoy: 

"Sagittarius has a global, universal instinct rather than the intense tribalism that characterizes the signScorpio" 

Note that in our first issue we said that we would focus on the doctrine of Thelema withoutregards to any one particular lineage. This could be reinterpreted as a call for the uniting of variousThelemic bodies. And our editorial bend will not change in this regard. And while that will remain aconstant, we also are calling for the uniting of all Gnostic bodies. Pluto has been in Scorpio longenough and that time has come to an end. We have seen enough fundamentalism with its warringways both within and without the Thelemic world. Let's seek after that which we share in commonrather than focusing on our differences. 

As a last quote, I will quote from the mission statement for the Holy Order of Ra-Hoor-Khuit: 

"We accept all traditions except those whose dogma teaches eternal damnation or the subjugation ofwomen or other groups based on race or creed." 

Let's take this to heart; most sincerely!
