From our Editorial: "As most readers are aware this is the second of three issues completing Volume VII of The Equinox: British Journal of Thelema after something of a pause. However this is not the first title the Journal has carried. In the 1970s there was The New Equinox under Ray Sherwin that saw the first declaration of Chaos Magic. in the early 1980s The New Equinox: British Journal of Magick revealed English qaballistic magick for the first time. Since 1988 the work has undergone such transformations that the title now speaks more of the point of departure than the goal. In other words, the contributors, readership and mission of this Journal represent a global rather than national or even international phenomenon, while the form of Thelema represented is both inclusive and non-aligned.
