This trump and this kua are identical in all three categories of description. The image is of the sun rising over the earth. The concept is the progress of humanity. The primary symbol is a great leader or lord.

Crowley: This card represents, in heraldic language, "the sun, charged with a rose, on a mount vert". ... The green mound represents the fertile earth, ... (BT p. 113)
What does this imagery indicate?
Wilhelm: (kua 35) In terms of human society, the present hexagram indicates a wise ruler with obedient servitors at his side. ... (p. 560) A time when a powerful feudal lord rallies the other lords around the sovereign and pledges fealty and peace. (p. 136)
Crowley: It (the trump) represents the lord of the new aeon, in his manifestation to the race of men as the sun spiritual, moral and physical. (BT p. 113)
What is the meaning of this symbolism and imagery?
Wilhelm: (kua 35) It is therefore the symbol of rapid, easy progress, which at the same time means ever widening expansion and clarity. ... An enlightened ruler and an obedient servant - this is the condition on which great progress depends. (p. 136)
Crowley: He is the Lord of Light, Life, Liberty and Love. This Aeon has for its purpose the complete emancipation of the human race. ... Freedom brings sanity. (BT p. 113)
What are we to progress in - be emancipated from?
Wilhelm: (kua 35) The real nature of man is likewise originally good, but it becomes clouded by contact with earthly things and therefore needs purification before it can shine forth in its native clarity. (p. 137)
Crowley: The indication of this symbolism is that it must be one of the great advances in adjustment of the new Aeon to work out simply and without prejudice the formidable problems which have been raised by the growth of civilization. (BT p. 114)
Such a task requires attitudes appropriate to the times.
Kua 35, line 1: PROGRESSING BUT TURNED BACK. PERSEVERANCE BRINGS GOOD FORTUNE. IF ONE MEETS WITH NO CONFIDENCE, ONE SHOULD REMAIN CALM. line 5: TAKE NOT GAIN AND LOSS TO HEART. (p. 137,138)
Wilhelm: (kua 35) At a time when all elements are pressing for progress, we are still uncertain whether in the course of advance we may not meet with a rebuff. Then the thing to do is simply to continue in what is right. (p. 137)
Crowley: Give forth thy light to all without doubt; the clouds and shadows are no matter for thee.
