Marjorie Cameron

Marjorie Cameron Parsons Kimmel (1922-1995) was an artist, occultist, actress, and wife of rocket pioneer and occultist Jack Parsons. Cameron played a major role in the 1946 Babalon Working ritual. Cameron was born in 1922 in Belle Plaine, Iowa, and graduated from Davenport High School in 1940. She enlisted in the Navy and served drawing maps and working with photographs. Cameron left the Navy after World War Two and moved to Pasadena where she met Parsons after he performed the Babalon Working, an occult rite to manifest the Goddess potential in society and throughout the human race. He said that she was at his home when he returned, and he believed her to be the entity he and L. Ron Hubbard had conjured. Cameron identified herself with the Scarlet Woman, as did those around her. After further magical workings together, Parsons, Hubbard and Cameron felt that they had conceived a Moonchild, as described in the novel of the same name by Aleister Crowley, although no physical child was born. They were referring to a spiritual entity. Cameron said that she had an abortion after conceiving a child within two weeks of meeting Parsons, so clearly a physical child was not the aim.
