ESSENCE: Indecision, worry or frustration traps us in an endlessly repeating pattern of negative thoughts. We are anxious and can obsess over fearful imaginings. We need to examine our assumptions and possible areas of self-deception.

The Binah (three) of Swords represents a time when our thinking is circular. Indecision turns to worry, turns to anger, turns to increased anxiety and obsessive thinking. Unable to break free of a fixed thought pattern we feel frustrated and trapped. This becomes yet another obsessive thought pattern.

Our rationalizations appear true. Self-deception or worries only create a deeper and deeper rut. The problem requires we open ourselves to additional ways to understand the reality. Sometimes thinking is not the only way to solve a problem. Here, The Binah reminds us that sometimes we can’t think our way out of a situation or solve our problems. In that case, it may be wise to invite advice from a trusted friend or counselor, or to turn to books or other sources for help.

This is when we need to ask ourselves, ”What other way can this problem be approached?

“Would even an arbitrary or spontaneous action help bring more options to light?” “What are my feelings and emotions?”
“What intuitive sense or aid can I turn to, or trust?”
The Binah of Swords may be inviting us to go into our fears, instead of denying them so we can finally see through them to the truth of the situation.

REVERSED: When The Binah of Swords is reversed, the way out is harder. We may be in danger of drowning in self-hate or self-pity.

It may also indicate our focus is too outwardly directed and caught in the externals of the situation.

The Binah of Swords reversed can indicate there is an urgent need and benefit to be gained from seeking guidance from outside inspirational or emotional sources. It’s strongly recommended we look to someone who can lead us to deeper awareness where we can explore our own inner wisdom, or introduce us to more profound sources of knowledge that can help us break out of fixed, obsessive or habitual thought patterns.

ESSENCE: Symbolically an eye, Ayin, is the beholder, the way we see and how that what we see, influences us. We need to see clearly to differentiate between truth and fiction to avoid being trapped in illusion. How we see, is what we get. Rider-Waite Tarot: The Devil

The Ayin is the number 70. Symbolically, the Ayin is an eye. It is with our eyes that we are able to perceive and differentiate old from new, aged from younger, darkness from the light, the day from the night. It is the eye, capable of discriminating between appearances. Yet, like a two-edged sword, the eye can also fool and entrap us through appearances.

Just as Samekh, 60, is in relationship with Vav, 6. Ayin, 70, is intimately connected to the Zayin, 7, the sword that divides. In Samekh the end of a cycle has been reached and simultaneously a new one begins. In following Samekh, Ayin is that which contains the seed of the new cycle. As it rests within the dark earth depths of the sacred eye of Ayin, we are given the opportunity to see, with greater consciousness and so, create our world anew. 

Provided with the clarity to see the past with new eyes, now, we are capable of reviewing our present. We can therefore choose our future with greater freedom. Ayin has tremendous power. The shape of our future is created by our skill to visualize or imagine not only a desired outcome, but also by our capacity to picture the steps needed for its completion. The better we can imagine and envision an outcome, with our mind’s eye, the more creative power we have to manifest it.

Finally, with Ayin we can open our eyes and awaken to the reality that we are not alone. In the receptive simplicity of a quiet heart, lies the source of the most profound joy. No matter the outer circumstances, if we choose, we can see and real-eyes Life as Paradise– this world, this time The Garden.

Ayin is the eye that can perceive Truth or being fooled, can enslave, or entrap us. The Ayin when reversed is in some ways comparable to the Devil in the Rider-Waite Tarot.

REVERSED: The contrary position of the Ayin card suggests we examine the possibility that we are being fooled or enslaved by appearances. We need to remember the hand is often faster than the eye.

We may be lamenting over the advantage our neighbor appears to have while ignoring or failing to see our own gifts. If we compare ourselves to others whom we believe to be or have more than we ourselves do, it is our eyes distorted view that has ensnared us.

The Ayin reversed is the eye of the beholder that has lost True-sight. That it is not our absolute or objective differences that feed envy. It is our subjective perceptions. Blinded by a clouded lens of ignorance, we become enslaved by appearances and entangled in a forest of twisted branches. Deceived, we torture and enslave ourselves, and others with hate and xenophobia. Entrapped by false visions, we are in turn tortured and twisted by anger, greed, envy, competitiveness, and ruthless ambition.

At any time we always have the choice to recognize that all this agony is our own self-deception. The moment we see that it is our point of view that enslaves us, we become free. The reversed Ayin directs us to look at the ways we have enslaved ourselves and remember that often that which seems so real is only a point of view.

Ayin is an eye silently watching, waiting for us to open our eyes and realize that how we see is what we get.

ESSENCE: Tzaddi is symbolic of a fishhook. Now we can draw up nourishment from the depths and gather gifts for ourselves and also, share with others. Righteousness and goodness connect us to each other and Divine Source. We can fulfill our purpose to share our authentic selves.  Rider-Waite Tarot: The Star

Tzaddi is the number 90. It is symbolic of a fishhook. Tzaddi is the means by which we dip down into the dark Waters. We find glistening in the murky deep, in the depths of our own unconscious, that our connection to the Mother’s Wisdom waits. Our responsibility is to know that the gifts we now draw up are not only for our own use and edification, not only for our individual development. They must be shared. Tzaddi, righteousness, is a reminder that a gift is nothing unless it is shared. It was through and for sharing that the earth was created.

While Pe, 80, is the mouth, Tzaddi, 90, is the fishhook with which we lure and catch what we choose to nourish ourselves with. As the number 90, Tzaddi is a faceted reflection of Tet, 9, the Wise Serpent who led us to the knowledge of good and evil, and now demands that it be used and shared for the good of all.

 When we can only fish with our hands, we are lucky to catch enough fish to feed ourselves. But with a fishhook enough may be caught to feed a family, providing sustenance both for ourselves, others and for the world. Sharing is so important, it is said that without deeds of giving by at least the thirty-six Tzadiks or righteous ones, the earth itself would perish. The use we make of our acquired wisdom and experience reflects our choice to nourish others or only our greed. Tzaddi is to serve and sustain others in the multi-hued joy of creation as we give back to the world the products of our rich accumulation. Eternally capable of giving and receiving, we can draw down inspiration from the Divine Source to put to practical use. We find food for body and soul, for ourselves and the community at large. We realize our most profound and important purpose in this life, is to share ourselves. Tzaddi symbolizes the goal or end toward which all Good tends and the means to attain it as well.

Tzaddi shares symbolism with the Rider-Waite Tarot card, The Star,
as it simultaneously reaches up into the heavens for inspiration, and plunges down into the depths, in order to obtain and share fruits of Divine revelation.

REVERSED: When reversed Tzaddi is a warning against hoarding. We need to ask ourselves, “Am I being miserly?”

“What and how much do I need to feel secure?”
“What is holding me back from sharing?”
“What am I afraid of losing?”
If we feed our emotional projections such as fear, envy, jealousy and prejudice, these

projections interfere with our ability to give of our self. It may also be we undervalue our own gifts because we are comparing them to others and need to recognize its uniqueness. We need to remind ourselves that nevertheless this is what we are here for. If we don’t hold back but give of our authentic selves with a full heart, it is enough.

It may also be reversed because we lack inspiration. In that case we might ask ourselves, “What can I do to feel creative and inspired?”

“What action will help me stimulate and awaken my inspiration?”

The Tzaddi card is upside down because we need to be reminded that in the bounty of the Divine giving and receiving, there is no lack and therefore no necessity for fear.

While Pe, 80, is the mouth, Tzaddi, 90, is the fishhook with which we lure and catch what we choose to nourish ourselves with. As the number 90, Tzaddi is a faceted reflection of Tet, 9, the Wise Serpent who led us to the knowledge of good and evil, and now demands that it be used and shared for the good of all.

ESSENCE: Tet, a serpent symbolizes the Great Mother. The Wise Preserving Force and Lawmaker, offers us knowledge and loss of innocence, then holds us responsible for our choices. Our karmic teacher invites us to know our Holiness. Rider-Waite Tarot: Justice

Tet is the number 9, Serpent, Karma the Great Mother forming a shelter or roof with her body. She holds us in her dark lap and teaches us her wisdom. She protects and covers us over and rocks us to sleep. At the navel, the center, where the secrets of life are hidden, she is the shield and natural preserving force, the energy that breathes and lifts us as we breathe.

While Chet is a fence around a field, Tet is the serpent protecting and surrounding the fence. Chet is a field or garden enclosed and Tet is the serpent of wisdom curled around the tree at its center. As the serpent in the garden who first inspired us with the knowledge of good and evil, she now holds us responsible for that which we have chosen to make our own. Tet is the truth we must face. Linked to wisdom and to prophetic dreams where the Divine reveals itself, She opens our mind to knowledge and our destiny. She is the lawmaker and councilor, the place deep in our center where we know whether our choices are right or wrong, healthy or destructive. When we are sheltered and immersed in goodness she is the hidden treasure, the wholeness that is in our own depths, a gift to be discovered. It is the miracle by which we live.

Now made pure, we are given the power and the intelligence to fly with the highest Self. The serpent that tempted us with the knowledge of good and evil forces us to grow up. We have what is needed for a safe journey: a foundation and the loss of innocence, for Tet is good. “I would lead thee, and bring thee into my mother’s house who would instruct me…” Solomon’s Song, Chapter 8, verse 2 Holy Bible.

Tet is related to the Tarot card Justice. Here, at the center of the Garden, in the protection of her lap, we are taught and guided by the results of our choices; of how we have responded to the realm of responsibility, all that we chose and committed to in Chet. Tet is the natural consequences by which we learn; she is the collector of karmic debts, the severe but still-loving mother.

REVERSED: When Tet is reversed, it refers to those things we do that separate ourselves from our highest good or wholeness. There is too much concern with self-protection. We may be behaving in selfish and irresponsible egocentric ways. We have grown too fond of the dark lap, sleeping curled and covered, even when She would have us wake up.

It is time to awaken and realize that it is only in the hiding, the lack of trust in our relationships, the secrets we keep from ourselves, and those we profess to love, that separate us from the Garden.

ESSENCE: We have begun our mission. Although our way is clear and things seem to flow easily, there is much work to do. We need to plan and use our energy wisely. We realize we can’t do it all alone, we find it’s time to prioritize goals and enlist able helpers.

The Binah (three) of Wheels represents a time when wisdom and understanding are joined to the initiatory impulse. We now possess the right vehicle for obtaining the materialization of our dreams. We have the inspiration, grace, passion, and skill to create our heart’s desire.

The work has begun. We have the map and know how to use it. Our way is clear. Our plans for the house, job, marriage, or some other goal, lies open on the desk and we’re ready to create the foundation. It seems all our plans will come together almost effortlessly. While we enjoy this propitious beginning, we still must plan accordingly, prioritizing our time and energy in preparation for the labor ahead. The Binah is a time to re-examine our goals and review our plans so we can gather the materials or helpers that we’ll need as our work progresses. When we accurately assess our strengths and weaknesses we know what skills require further development, what weakness needs strengthening. That way we can gather the help and helpers we may need in advance.

The Binah is a time to re-examine our goals, re-organize our plans and gather the materials or helpers that we’ll need as our work progresses. We also re-examine our plans, so we can make whatever changes are necessary before it’s too late, or too costly to turn back easily.

REVERSED: When The Binah is reversed it represents a warning against growing too comfortable or careless. It reminds us that now is the time we need to pay attention to even the smallest details of our process if we want the outcome to be successful.

Also, this reversal reminds us to plan for any unexpected or unanticipated problems that might arise. Since there can be unexpected changes in plans or in our situation it is important even at this early stage to plan for all eventualities.
