The many dimensions of the One Energy Conscious ( Supreme Spirit Conscious) is represented in the Tarot-- which can be confusing for the new student. Besides the fact that the Minor cards carry two interchangeable sets of symbolism, Planets in the signs of the Zodiac and aspects of each Sephiroth in the Four Worlds[for info on the 4 worlds view past blog]: the Minor cards and each Decan are also assigned a pair of Angels---one ruling the day and the other ruling the night.The duality of light and dark is apparent here, neither being a value statement but rather active and passive forces. The cards are rooted in the world of angels, Yetzirah while the World of Mind is ruled by Archangels of Briah and the World of Spirit is ruled by the Gods of Atziluth. Now we know there is only One Energy, that can't be created nor destroyed-----so the Gods of Atziluth are selves of the Greater Self, as we have selves of our Self (angry self, happy self, child self, adult self etc.) It is easy to see how confusion is developed here. To help in unraveling this seeming chaos, it behooves us to understand that the Cards are Astral Images of "as above so below", symbolically illustrating the world of matter below and the worlds of Mind and Spirit above. For example; it is said that the Two of Wands represents the effect in Yetzirah (Formative World) of the power of Chokmah who is in Atziluth (Spirit World) while the Knight of Wands, personifies the action of Fire of Fire in Yetzirah through which higher principles pass down into our lives from the Above. Yetzirah shows us that we have a world of images reflected from above to the below which explains why Tarot is exemplary as a device for divination.
This necessary complex shuffling of words composed of definitions, sub-definitions, super-definitions, pluperfect and platitudinous definitions is because of the 10 dimensions of Energy Consciousness---after the 4th dimension of time/space, all singular words do not apply. The ability to explain the invisible requires much manipulation of word concepts and the student must learn a new perspective if not language, to just grasp the remotest knowledge of the concept .Words used in previously unknown ways conjoined with images, is the only possible way of opening the conscious mind to the unseen! Just as Quantum physics tries to verbally explain the invisible quanta.
The above illustration shows the attribution of the Minor cards and the Court cards to the Zodiac. Signs of the Houses of the Zodiac are shown on the innermost circle, Second ring are the small cards of the Tarot. Third ring depicts the days of the year attributed to the Decans. Knights, Queens, and Princes are shown on the fourth ring of the Zodiac. The Princesses are on the Fifth ring and are technically three dimensions above the Knights (Kings), Queens, and Princes. The outer ring is the Aces and are, when this schematic is considered a three dimensional sphere, at the North Pole of the Earth above the Princesses.
Since it is understood that two angels are applied to each numbered card of the Minor Arcana, as administrators of its specific forces, it is perfectly acceptable to skry with these cards while invoking the protection and guidance of the God-name and Archangel of the related Sephira and of these angels. This adds dimension of invocation and of Sound that enhances the skrying, as one would experience in a Yoga- Yantra and Mandala application. Let's stop here, as your mind may require a rest. The names of the Angels is in Aleister Crowley's definitive book titled: 777 and other Qabalistic Writings of Aleister Crowley from Weiser Books. Thank you for your interest and comments.
