Hmmm.... your picture reminds me a little of this symbol (only from a different point of view)

What do the circles mean in Crowley's emblem?  I'm pretty sure that they do not represent Venn diagrams as in 2729.

Well going from inner to outer the inner circle is the head the next is the foreskin and the outer two are the balls!  - it's the eyeball-eyeball view of a pecker.
Yeah i got that part.  Was that the meaning intended by Crowley? Somehow it seem incongrous.

That seems exactly congruent with Crowley! As a matter of fact he used to shave his own head so that it would resemble a phallus!

i think there must have been some other meaning as well.  Just putting a dick on your emblem is a kind of dorky thing to do.
That wasn't his only emblem
He was obcesses with sex, wasn't he .... dork, dork, dork ...
So, it's just phallus worship ... i guess that fits.

I don't understand why suddenly now you switch this item to be private, but you will flash it out of context on my public blog. What specifically is the esoterica that needs to be kept private here?

I was simply sick of seeing the symbol. Anyone in the group can do that.

Unlike a comment , private is the only way of coverint it up. It was mostly a joke to begin with, not an attempt to deface your item.  I thought you would have deleted it in the first place.
It was out of context on my item, but as a study of Crowley's symbology, it is interesting. Perhaps when you get a you could post some others.  I just don't see the need to keep it private .. witness 2702.  Crowley's interest in sex is pretty much public knowledge, is it not? 
Sex is mostly Crowley's claim to fame. I don't really want to uncover it. Like I said it was intended to be a transitory joke. Turn yours upside down and you get somewhat similar morphology. The web is full of Crowley stuff, symbology, his Tarot - it's nothing I am promoting.
