The Empress: New Tarot Image

We present here a new Tarot image (Atu III) by Richard Moult which forms part of his forthcoming Tarot pack titled Non Est Secundus Quia Unus Est.


In our opinion this Tarot image is the best occult rendering of Atu III that we have ever seen. A hi-resolution version of the image is available at:


Baphomet by Richard Moult

Given discussions past, and recent, about the use by the O9A of the term Fayen, and given the misconceptions that persist about what the word means, here is a summary of its origin and meaning.

The word derives from Old Saxon, and signifies joy/rejoicing. Fayen is a variant spelling found in one medieval English manuscript, with other variants being fayn and faein. The word also appears – in reference to sacrifice, the shedding of blood – in another medieval English manuscript.

The variant fayn occurs in the MS known as the Chronicle of Robert of Gloucester dating from c. 1300 CE, a copy of which MS is in the Cotton Collection at the British Library.

So ‘year of fayen’ means ‘year of rejoicing’, with the first ‘year of rejoicing’ being 1889. Why? Because that dates the birth of the person who considered himself just the precursor of Vindex/Kalki and who thus, by his accomplishments (such as the Waffen SS), prepared the way for “the one against Time” and which “one against Time”, via the shedding of blood, by sacrifice, creates the new Imperium, who thus presences a new Aeon, and who bloodily avenges the defeat of 1945.

Hence why the term also invokes Baphomet – the Mistress of Sacrifice and Blood – who is, esoterically, the archetype of that new Aeon, with Vindex being Her mythological son or daughter.
