Daily Tarot Card Brief: Key 16-The Tower: The Path of Peh

The Path of Peh; Key 16-The Tower.
Often people assume that the process of spiritual- personality development to be one of "sweetness and light". This is a misconception primarily fostered by Christianity. The Tower points out that inner growth is a painful and overwhelming process. We should have deduced by now, that Nature is not always kind to us and once we invoke inner forces , we soon discover that what we get is what we need and that is not always what we want. Certainly, it is not what we expect as the branches of the Tree of Life are filled with surprises! The Tower symbolizes the surprise and suddenness of insight as well as a preface to a new era of self awareness.
  • The Primary color: Scarlet
  • Musical Note: C Natural
  • Astrological Planet: Mars
  • Symbol of Meaning: Mouth
  • Double Letter: Grace-Indignation
  • Esoteric Title: The Lord of the Hosts of the Mighty.
From the
Thirty-Two Paths of Wisdom
(Paul Foster Case):
The Twenty-seventh
Path is the Active or Exciting Intelligence and it is so called because through it every existent being receives its spirit and motion.
The Path of Peh (The Tower), connects the center of the reasoning process (Hod) with the center of the intuition-desire nature (Netzach).
From :The Qabalistic Tarot by Robert Wang;... it is the equilibrating Path of the Personality, related to Mars, and to the North, the quarter known traditionally in the Mysteries as "the place of greatest darkness" because it is said that the Sun never shone in the North of Solomon's Temple. Yet we are instructed that Light comes from Darkness, that "gold cometh from the North", and that "Enlightenment has its origin in the hidden sources of power which terrify the minds of the ignorant".  In quantum physics, we know that from Dark energy comes light energy.
The Path of Peh is a Hebrew Double letter which designates it as one of the "Gateways of the Soul" with two possible directions of passage. Peth means mouth, which symbolizes the taking in of nourishment ( in this case taking in of higher energies to enervate the Personality)  the passing out of speech.
A process utilized by the Prana Yamas (breathing exercises of Yoga) to expand and liberate the Personality through the influx of Prana (Spiritual Life Force) and the chanting of sounds such as "Ohm". Those of us who have done esoteric work are aware of the abject importance of words and of the sounds that compose these words. The physical inner Vibration of a God Name, can have definitive effect on the physical body and even on the subtle energy patterns of the body- even if one is not consciously aware of it. Words of Power, that is words spoken with Martian Force, assist us in bringing down  our personal Towers which are the false concepts and institutions which we believe to be reality. We are also aware that to tear something down is to make space for some new construction. Thus Mars is not only the god of War and Destruction, but also the traditional god that rules over the fertility of crops. Also ,the Logos is called
The Word.
In the Thoth Deck, we can see the striking down of the Tower, and the Personality concepts of reality (crystalline forms falling from the Tower) and it looks like the destruction of evil. This is not the case as it show us the  spiritual learning process of building up and tearing down of concepts (to expand and liberate the personality from false concepts of self) formed only as useful stepping stones into the inner worlds of spirit. The Tower is shown in complete isolation, since most individuals perceive themselves as totally separate units of consciousness. This is an error of the Personality. When that Tower falls, we experience the True Ego, which is not ours alone.(Everything I See is another Way to be Me.). Yet each Tower of Perspective we build is sacred as a construct of reality that leads us to the next construct.  Knowing this, we understand the underlying principles of  each Path without being bound by their necessary artificial outward manifestation. For instance, our physical bodies are outward manifestations of inner Spiritual awareness and our spirit is not bound to that body (it is a Tower that falls also) and does move on! When viewing the Tree of Life, it is necessary to understand that the Sephiroth (circles) are the centers of objective energy while each path is our subjective use of that energy. That is to say, that all Sephiroth flow subtly on all paths. There really is no division-ism anywhere in the Universe which is composed of One Energy, immortal and infinite and which is represented as the All Seeing Eye (I) in this card, that is observing all as itself. While Dis, the Roman god of the dead, belches flames from the tower base. On either side are the Serpent and the Dove depicting two forms of desire,,,the
will to live and the will to die . This path is often terrifying and has been referred to as the "Dark night of the Soul".....if that is true then you are not willing to transform  and transformation is forced upon you by the Greater Ego, which to me is salvation and not dark at all.
To be Transformed by Kali Ma (The Dark Intelligence of Dark Matter) is a Transformation of the Soul (The Original Personality) into Universal Real Awareness-----and that is scary only to the ego's/personality based survival mind.
