I suspect the figure is female. She's either making the sign of the Mourning of Isis. Or maybe the intention was to have her holding a sword and balances.

That one I haven't heard again, mainly because the child there refers to Horus (=a Solar Deity) whose Aeon is the current one (at least Crowley suggests so). My personal understanding about Horus though, is that he is a mainly masculine Deity and Crowley (along with Ancient Egyptian mythoilogy) seems to be more clear about this then about other things (like the inverted benediction sign we are talking about).

EDIT: If you are referring to the one with the sword, my post refers to the shiny child in the Pentagram.

Oh,ok thanks Aeon. I just looked up the mourning of Isis and the motions looked similar in the hexagram ritual that came up.

I was just trying to nudge the sinister sign off the woman to the other half of the population

Eve blamed for luring Adam into knowingness, poor old deceived Pasiphae (ewww) and the adultery of Set's Wife...hmm... scarlet woman...
