Inspirations from OUR ANCIENT MOTHER’S ALPHABET

20 Octobwe 2018 or 11 Heshvan 5779
Prince Of Wands

Essence: A child or childishly impulsive, impatient person who needs to develop receptivity and trust to realize their creative potential. Or it may indicate a serendipitous message or discovery.

The Prince of Wands may announce the arrival of an inspiring or fortunatemessage. When referring to a person, the Prince of Wands is a scholar: friendly, inquisitive and possibly creative, his impulsiveness, spiritual impatience and his scholarliness keep him off center. In the realm of creativity we need to be receptive rather than pursuant.

It may indicate one who is caught in the impatient acquisitiveness of youth, or it may represent a young person (male or female) who has not yet matured. In this card, his hand is still partially outstretched toward the figure before him. As in the myth of Apollo and Daphne, in chasing and attempting to possess or force Inspiration from Creative Source, he has inadvertently caused it to fly from him. The tree before him has the figure of a woman caught in the action of running from his spiritually acquisitive energy and need to control what is essentially Holy Great Spirit’sbestowal or revelation.

Here his feminine side has not yet been integrated into his consciousness, and therefore he has cut himself off from what he most fervently desires. His mouth is still open from talking rather than listening.

There is hope that this may not be a permanent situation. The branch above his head is still awaiting his notice and attention, if he can stop his overly intellectual approach and tune into his unconscious. He’s called upon to trust the creative energy to be there. Instead of attempting to force it, he can cultivate a little emptiness. Then, the Creative will have room to enter.

Reversed: If the card is reversed, it refers to one who is an energy drain on others, through talking and never listening. It might be indicating someone who has a pompous, overly intellectual approach to life.

This card could also refer to a woman or man who acts too much from the energy of animus, reflecting the androcentric, patriarchal values of our contemporary culture, and who thus freezes his or her own creativity.

6 ו וּ Vav Peg, Nail

Essence:  Vav represents a nail or link to join separate parts as we build. In building relationships Vav is to meet and through sharing our depths, to be truly known. It is the penis linking one body to another, and the child who links us to the future. Rider-Waite Tarot: High Priest / Pope           

Vav, the number 6, derives from a symbol representing a peg, hook, nail, or link.  When we need to build something, it is to assemble, to nail down, to put together. Vav is to meet, to share ourselves, to be known.

As a means of connection, Vav is the element with which we join the sometimes disparate elements of our lives.  It is the way we link our lives with others.  Vav is the penis, which links one body to another, and the child who connects us to the future.

While the Heh represents the individual still deeply immersed in relationship with Shekinah, the Feminine Presence, Vav is representative of the method by which this connection is accomplished. It describes that solid yet available Presence which links the otherwise opposite worlds of the Divine consorts.

We recognize now that we are each unique yet can work together, because Vav is also to engage in discussion and to compromise. Most important, when we confess, bringing to light the truth where there has been a lie, Vavis how, by so doing, we join ourselves to another. Through revealing our inner darkness and bringing it into the light of relationship, we allow ourselves to be fully known. It’s about the need for self-acceptance and for accepting others for their unique selves. When we connect we become whole. SoVav can bring high and low together, linking heaven to earth, for to know our full selves is to know God.

The Vav card can be compared to the Rider-Waite TarotHigh Priest, in that both archetypes address themselves to the ways in which we link ourselves to God.

Reversed: If the Vav card is reversed, it speaks of the need to confess that which we might rather not reveal.  It speaks of shame which keeps us from being fully present and connected to others and even life itself.

When reversed this card reminds us of our lack of compassion and conversely the necessity of developing greater compassion for others and especially ourselves.

In reversal the Vav may refer to a tendency to give away our power or shut off our ability for discernment so that others are able to shame us. By so doing, we may give away our authority, as we are wrongly led to believe that only they can create the connection, instead of trusting our own ability to do it ourselves.

Conversely, Vav reversed may be warning us to not allow our sense of connection to the Highest, to God, result in our becoming lost in the fog where delusions of grandeur lead us to stop listening to the Other, as we believe our ideas and in extreme cases, even our bodies are infallible.

7 Netzach Of Wheels

Essence: Now we turn our attention inward. Although material satisfaction is still important, we focus more of our energy on living a meaningful life. Our allowing of others to support us relinquishes our need to be controlling. We can trust in others’ abilities as well as our own.

The Netzach (seven) of Wheels represents a time when we are removed from the world of material fulfillment. Although the means for obtaining material satisfactions are available, we are no longer driven by other-directed ideas of success. We have an understanding of unnecessarily fearful visions of failure and of the pointlessness of striving after culturally defined illusions of success. Our values and attention are focused inward. We live beyond the realm of superficial concerns. We are no longer driven by shallow desires nor obsessed with outwardly directed symbols of security or status. The process of discovering security in the depths of the Greater Self becomes our main focus.

To set aside our false pride, let our vulnerability show and ask directly for what we need, we give others the benefit of being able to share their gifts and take care of us. As our ego releases our need to control others, we can appreciate others’ abilities and skills. We realize that each has their own unique perspective and contribution that may enrich the whole.

Reversed: When Netzach is reversed, we need to ask, “Am I trying to make others second guess me rather than asking directly for what I need?”

The Netzach upside-down can be an indication that we, or someone close, is being lazy and egocentric. We might explore whether our desire to share responsibility reflects a reluctance to complete an unpleasant task.

We may behave in a childish way to feed our need for power, trying to manipulate others to do for us as a means of control. Conversely, someone close to us may be trying to manipulate or control us in this same way.

There is a tendency toward parasitic behavior on our or someone else’s part. We, or someone close to us, may be using ill health or physical weakness to avoid responsibility or to manipulate the other person.

This reversal can also represent a failure to take responsibility for spiritual, emotional or material relationships.

When we are honest with ourselves we not only benefit ourselves, we are also support our relationships and business interests.

2 ב בּ Bet House, Womb, Great Grand Mother

Essence:  Held and protected, Bet is “house” or “womb,” our home before we emerge into the world. Bet may be empty, receptive, longing to be filled; or it may be full, as we begin to experience the creation and expansive movement and mystery of developing new life. Rider-Waite Tarot: High Priestess.

Bet is the numeral 2, meaning “house” or “womb.” It is that place wherein we are held and protected; our dwelling, before we emerge to face the world. Bet is the number two and the first double letter. Bet without the Dagesh (signifying dot) is the empty house, the home waiting for your return, a blessing waiting for the receptive spirit. Bet is first the womb empty, longing to be filled. Bet is the beginning of creation and so Holy One creates Duality as out of that longing Bet creates the first spark of existence; the first blessing. Thus, Bet is blessing and the beginning of structure or order, the beginning of creation. The world is created through Bet.  It is inspiration and expansive movement. Betis that which precedes our entrance. It is the womb that protects, nurtures and prepares us for entrance into the world. Bet is new, virginal. Bet is the potential of chaos containing the seed of order. And so, with the Dagesh, Bet is a womb containing a child.

In Bet, the undifferentiated I Am of Aleph forms itself into the Goddess; Her womb first empty, then full of life. Thus with Bet out of the One, duality is created. 

Because of its feminine implication, Bet is symbolically similar to the High Priestess in the Tarot, for Bet is the Virgin Goddess, who, out of longing for a mirror reflection, creates the Other. Within her womb forms the first duality, the first fruits: the first rain, the first-born girl, first-born boy. She is a Goddess of wisdom and fertility. In a reading, the Bet card refers to the longing for wisdom through and because of which we begin to create our selves. Bet also speaks of the internal growth necessary before the external can exist. Because Bet is also Binah, (3rd Sefirot, Understanding) it is a card of understanding and scholarship, of guidance and spiritual nourishment. Bet is the Spirit of the Womb of Creation, the loving home which sustains us when we go out and welcomes us in when we return.

Reversed: If the Bet card is reversed, it’s about being empty, as in vacant, uncultivated or unfulfilled. The reversal may indicate that we’ve neglected or wasted our blessings or potential. This card can indicate isolation, loneliness or emptiness that does not invite an entrance. It may refer to a house without love. Bet reversed may indicate our cup is so filled with longing there’s no room for what we long for to enter. So have a good cry and self-pity fest. It’s okay. Sometimes we need that. It’s just there’s no life, or potential for life in there.  Then, think. 

 We’re reminded that this moment is everything. It is all we have. If I think what I have now is all I’ll ever have, my only choice is to be happy or miserable. When we bless our moment, choose to be happy or satisfied, whatever our circumstances, our cup, no longer filled with longing, may then find true fulfillment.

20 ככּךּ Kaf, Hand, Palm of Hand

Essence:  Symbolic of the palm of the hand in its three positions: empty to receive, containing another or grasping, and compressed into a fist. It may indicate a turning point. We are processing a change in outlook or outward circumstance, a change in fortune. Rider-Waite Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

Kaf is the number 20. Symbolically Kaf is the palm of the hand. The letter Kaf has three forms. First, without the Dagesh, or center dot, the hand is empty, inviting or letting go. The second form contains the Dagesh and could be seen as a hand gently holding another. In its third form, the hand is contracted into a fist, squeezing.

The cycle from the Aleph through the Yod represents the contracting of the energy to its center. As the central point, Yod simultaneously ends one cycle and begins the next. Following its ultimate contraction, Yod must inevitably expand outward again. Kaf with the Dagesh symbolizes the primal eternal microcosmic essence of Yod (as Source) surrounded by the many forms of the macrocosm, the eternity of Yod surrounded by the transitory nature of Kaf.  The Kaf is therefore the Bet inside out.  Where Bet was female, forming from her projected energy the beginning male within her, the Dagesh in the Kaf is the essential Female encircled by the Male energy.

Without the dot, the palm of the hand is empty, expectant, cupped to receive riches and welcomes life’s creative energies. The center Dagesh here, is the archetypal and eternal, while encircling it is the specific and ephemeral form of the Kaf. Kaf is living life with energy and appreciation for the gift. It is the river of life filling and flowing eternally through us. We are always shaping and being shaped.

Comparable to the Rider-Waite Tarot: Wheel of Fortune card, Kaf is the sun that rises, shines, and sets only to rise once again, like ancient ritual re-enactments of the myths of a God-King who, once chosen, crowned and exalted, is given the world and then sacrificed, only to rise again. In a reading it is indicative of a turning point, a time for changing direction, for moving on.  It may indicate we are processing a change in outlook or change in fortune.

Reversed: Kaf reversed may mean we are resisting a necessary change. It can indicate an unhappy turn of events due to the time or our own inability to adapt and go with the flow. We may sometimes think a change of fortune is bad luck when it might actually bring good fortune.

When this card is upside down it can be seen as an indication that we are holding too tightly to some thing, some idea or someone. Here is a warning not to make our holding a prison. Kaf reversed reminds us that even “Truth”, if squeezed too tightly, becomes the lie. We are called to learn and understand the important distinction between holding and grasping. Sometimes the only thing we can hold on to is our awareness that life offers no security except for the certainty of change.

6 Tiferet Of Cups

 Essence: Personal growth within the relationship. We learn to balance our absorption in and nurturing of a relationship with our need to withdraw. Still committed to the relationship, we take ourselves back to nurture ourown needs, desires and interests as well.

The Tiferet (six) of Cups represents compassion, empathy, true understanding. The soul-mates are joined, but in a vital relationship where both the dark and light sides of the partners are revealed to each other and themselves.

Though it is not without conflict, it is a dance where the partners have their differences and yet accept themselves and each other.Snow White turns out to be a lousy housekeeper without her retinue of dwarves. Prince Charming never picks up his clothes or puts the toilet seat down. She likes parties and travel while he needs quiet and time to be alone. Yet their love allows each to fully grow and be themselves. They share a love deeper than each their differences and flaws.

The Tiferet of Cups combines passion for each other and self-love. Communication and compassion are joined. Both parties are committed and dedicated to keeping the relationship true, vital and alive. Their recognition and respect for their differences and different needs, increases their love and enriches them both.

The Tiferet of Cups represents a time when we may look at our mutual creation that is a relationship and appreciate its goodness.

This card refers to a way of being in all our relationships. The relationship with a beloved is only used as an example, since the Tiferet of Cups can refer to any or all of our important relationships. In an individual reading it may refer to the relationship between parent and child, between friends, or even a business partnership.

Reversed: When the Tiferet of Cups is reversed, it is a reminder that life can always cause even the most secure and established relationships to change course. It addresses the importance of staying current in our awareness of each other. Tiferet reversed may be trying to warn us against becoming complacent. 

We need to ask ourselves “Am I seeing my partner as they truly are or am I projecting onto them my own reality?”

“Am I really willing to listen to what they are trying to communicate?”

“Am I willing to ask a hard question?”

“Can I speak my truth?”

Conflict is important for growth. If we only see our own distorted projection of our partner, even if it’s an attractive picture, we put our selves and our relationship in danger. All that can help is vigilance so that we can see through the projections to the reality.

2 Hokhma Of Cups

Essence: Ready for relationship, openness and anticipation. Feeling comfortable and happy alone awakens the desire to share ourselves with a mate, partner or others with whom we can build a deep relationship.

The Hokhma (two) of Cups represents the realization of our desire to find a mate, collaborator or work-partner. We are comfortable in our skin, sensing our own individuality. Even when alone, we enjoy our life and creativity, while simultaneously yearning to share our love, creativity and life with another. We are whole, integrated and also open for another to enter. There is a readiness for relationship.

No longer fearing a lonely future, we know how to create our own joy and life. The cup of our heart is no longer filled to overflowing with yearning. We don’t need another to make us happy and so our heart, emptied of longing, has room for love to pour in and fill it.

We may experience feelings of anticipation and a sense ofexpectation awaiting an impending arrival.While knowing we can be happy alone, we are nevertheless available to love and intimate relationships. 

Reversed: When the Hokhma of Cups is reversed, we feel lonely and incomplete without a mate. We may believe our only possibility for joy and happiness in life depends on our finding someone to love and be loved by. This may leave us so intensely filled with longing for a friend, a mate, or a child, that nothing can enter. The ground is too full of bitterness, fear or grief. It is important at this time to find happiness within our selves. 

We are being invited to release our fear of being alone and seek our awareness of connection first within our own heart. Now is not the time to look for someone to love us or make us happy. With no beloved other in our life, we need to accept that we can’t count on an ephemeral future. The present is all we have.

What is not here will not be out there. The only future we can count on is our life as it is now. Ask, “If I’m to be alone forever, do I choose to be happy alone or unhappy alone?” If we choose to be happy alone, we may find this choice is the very thing that empties our cup of longing so that love can fill it.

400 ת תּ Tav , Signature, Sign of Perfection, Completion

Essence: Symbolically, mark (of Perfection) in Tav, the perfect union of opposites, all forces and energies together, as both completion and beginning anew in a process of perpetual creation. Our lives fill with goodness, compassion, clarity and Truth. Rider-Waite Tarot: The World or Universe

Tav is the number 400. Because it has two forms, one with the center Dagesh (dot) and one without a Dagesh, the letter Tav encompass the idea of perfection, perpetually beginning and ending only to begin anew.  The Dagesh in the center of the Tav can be seen as the Aleph (1). Thus, the end becomes the beginning.

In the evolution of Tav (400) we begin with Dalet (4), the door through which all life must pass—the Mother perpetually giving birth. Next, in Mem (40) the Mother gives up the child The sacrifice of the mother/child relationship must happen for individuation to occur—so her child can become a man or a woman. Finally, in Tav the lovers have come together as reciprocal co-creators. Tav with the Dagesh is symbolic of the Female and Male of God with their Androgynous child. When Tav (400) is numerologically reduced to 4, it forms the Divine Quaternity expressed in the Divine, unpronounceable Name of God (Yod, Heh, Vav, He), both beginning and completion, which equals the number 8 (The Infinite One).

In Tav, Zayin, (the sword) is reversed to become a support for the Resh (head). Tav is symbolic of perfection: the dynamic union of opposites. Resh is the innocence of the original male/female androgyny, Shin is the new birth process, and Tav is the perfection that we are born from, and into. It is the absolute reciprocal union of male and female, within and without supporting and nourishing one another and, by so doing, joyously and perpetually birthing new creations.

Text Box: In the evolution of Tav (400) we begin with Dalet (4), the door through which all life must pass—the Mother perpetually giving birth. Next, in Mem (40) the Mother gives up the child The sacrifice of the mother/child relationship must happen for individuation to occur—so her child can become a man or a woman. Finally, in Tav the lovers have come together as reciprocal co-creators. Tav with the Dagesh is symbolic of the Female and Male of God with their Androgynous child.

In Tav, Zayin, (the sword) is reversed to become a support for the Resh (head). Tav is symbolic of perfection: the dynamic union of opposites. Resh is the innocence of the original male/female androgyny, Shin is the new birth process, and Tav is the perfection that we are born from, and into. It is the absolute reciprocal union of male and female, within and without supporting and nourishing one another and, by so doing, joyously and perpetually birthing new creations.

In Tav, the desire and longing created by the sword of discernment and order finds fulfillment in union with the fertile and resonant chaos. It is the compassionate harmony, the interpenetration of these two cosmic principles, which allow all meaningful activity to take place. The Feminine Tree of Life and Wisdom rests over the sword, Zayin. Now, Zayin reversed has become the support for the abundantly productive tree, which is both supported by and supports the sword on which it rests.

In the Genesis of Shin, we were once again given choice, and this time chose the fruit of responsibility, wisdom and non-dualistic unity with the Divine. With Tav, we are given the opportunity to hear the voice of God again and to receive the healed Torah, where the black and white letters swirl in a dance of wondrous delight. The Dagesh in the center of the Tav is the twin-souled baby, the joyous prayer realized, the perfect healing of the Perfection. Tav is the Divine Vessel again whole and once more containing the light of the Infinite Divine compassin.

Now, in a process of perpetual, perfecting creation, all aspects dance together. The completion of Tavprovides us with the openness and clarity to live with the order in chaos, and with the chaos in order. Here is spontaneous joy that allows us to follow the path of our Heart. All aspects of life dance together and we are capable of living to our potential. Now, in spite of our fears, we can live with full participation in a paradoxical world, even if we never receive final answers to the mystery and meaning of our existence. Without ultimate guarantees, we nevertheless have developed our ability to love. By so doing, we appreciate the miraculous sacredness of all life.

Tav shares some meaning with the Rider-Waite Tarot, World or Universe card.

Tav is a card of goodness, activity, openness, of perpetual newness and compassion, of self-integration and growth.

Reversed: When Tav is reversed its a warning not to throw oneself away on the world through impatience and possessiveness. The attitude, “I want it all and I want it now!” cannot help but throw us back into a state of illusion and grief.

We are at risk of losing what we have journeyed so far to gain. Tav reversed might describe a situation similar to the story of the fishermans wife, who went from satisfaction to desiring and receiving more and more until at last she was thrown back into the poverty from which she had come, and in some sense had never left.
