As the Manifestation of the Goddess in this Aeon, she has come to strike a balance between the male and female energies. She does not do this passively. She is Girt with a Sword and will be at the head of Her armies, women and men together, fighting for true equality of the Female, and all people, as autonomous individuals. This equality is not one where the woman imitates man, and tries to become like him, competing with him for dominance. Woman is not “Man in veiled form”, as Crowley greatly misunderstands it. Rather, Woman has her own unique place, much different from that of a man, but coequal in ability to fight, rule, desire, and accomplish. This is the way of Babalon.
