She also performs on a Horus themed stage:

Horus.- He is the Sun God of Egypt of around 3000 BC. He is the sun, anthropomorphized, and his life is a series of allegorical myths involving the sun’s movement in the sky. From the ancient hieroglyphics in Egypt, we know much about this solar messiah. For instance, Horus, being the sun, or the light, had an enemy known as Set and Set was the personification of the darkness or night . And, metaphorically speaking, every morning Horus would win the battle against Set – while in the evening, Set would conquer Horus and send him into the underworld. It is important to note that “dark vs. light” or “good vs. evil” is one of the most ubiquitous mythological dualities ever known and is still expressed on many levels to this day.

Broadly speaking, the story of Horus is as follows: Horus was born on December 25thof the virgin Isis-Meri. His birth was accompanied by a star in the east, which in turn, three kings followed to locate and adorn the new-born savior At the age of 12, he was a prodigal child teacher, and at the age of 30 he was baptized by a figure known as Anup and thus began his ministry. Horus had 12 disciples he traveled about with, performing miracles such as healing the sick and walking on water. Horus was known by many gestural names such as The Truth, The Light, God’s Annointed Son, The Good Shepherd, The Lamb of God, and many others. After being betrayed by Typhon, Horus was crucified, buried for 3 days, and thus, resurrected.

These attributes of Horus, whether original or not, seem to permeate in many cultures of the world, for many other gods are found to have the same general mythological structure.

In the religion of Thelema, it is believed that the history of humanity can be divided into a series of Aeons, each of which was accompanied by its own forms of “magical and religious expression”. The concept of the Aeons was reinterpreted by the English occultist Aleister Crowley (1875–1947), the founder of Thelema, who claimed to have learned it from The Book of the Law, a sacred text he believed had been dictated to him by his Holy Guardian Angel Aiwass in 1904. The Book of the Law is divided into three sections, each of which describes a different aeon.

The first of these was the Aeon of Isis, which Thelemites believed occurred during prehistory and which saw mankind worshipping a Great Goddess, symbolised by the ancient Egyptian deity Isis. In Thelemite beliefs, this was followed by the Aeon of Osiris, a period that took place in the classical and mediaeval centuries, when humanity worshipped a singular male god, symbolised by the Egyptian god Osiris, and was therefore dominated by patriarchal values. The Book also asserted that in 1904, humanity would enter into a third aeon, the Aeon of Horus, which was controlled by the child god, symbolised by Horus. In this new aeon, Thelemites believe that humanity will enter a time of self-realization and self-actualization.

According to Aleister Crowley, an “Aeon of Horus” was soon coming in which mankind would become devoted to self-rights & liberties as we usher in a universal utopia united by a collective consciousness under one rule of law – his Law of Thelema called, “Do what thou wilt”, It is in this way that we would then become gods ourselves.

Of that age, Crowley writes:

“There is no need to develop the ethics of Thelema in detail, for everything springs with absolute logic from the singular principle, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” Or, to put it another way, “There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.” And, “thou hast no right but to do thy will.”

This formula itself springs ineluctably from the conception of the individual outlined in the preceding section. “The word of Sin is Restriction.” “It is a lie, this folly against self.” The theory is that every man and every woman has each definite attributes whose tendency, considered in due relation to environment, indicate a proper course of action in each case. To pursue this course of action is to do one’s true will. “Do that, and no other shall say nay.”” Aleister Crowley, Chapter – THE ADVENT OF THE AEON OF HORUS, Confessions
