Art-Key 14-Thoth Deck Tarot-Path of Samek

In the Thoth Deck the TEMPERANCE card is called the  ART  card Key-14. Crowley had good reasons for this, because this card is about the Alchemical art of uniting opposites, to get something more than the sum of its parts. However, it is also a kind of Temperance, such as one would experience when tempering iron in a hot forge and dousing the white hot iron in cool water, to temper it into a blade- steel. Steel being more than the sum of fire, iron and water because of the Art of the hammering black- smith.
The meaning of the word Samekh is PROP, and must be explained in depth by the use of symbols, as words are unable to convey the Art.
In the Thoth Deck, the Image of a two faced Womb-man, one dark and one light. This is because there are two stages to the Goddess, womb of all life, The Dark Womb, that is the "Bringer forth of light" and the Light Womb that is the Birth/prop of all form. This card Shows The Great Mother-Binah under different guises. The Dark Face would be the Vast Dark Ocean of conscious and the White face would be Diana the huntress-consciousness, who governs the tides of earth and the fluctuations of the Astral currents. Sagittarius is the zodiacal  sign  that governs this card and it is known as "the mutable fire". Diana, being the Huntress is known for her Bow and Arrows as is Sagittarius. In the Thoth Deck card, you see the image of the Great Mother, joining the Water of the Silver Cup (Moon-Womb of tides and astral currents) and the Lightning bolt-Arrows of mutable fire as the combination of water-fire pour into a fired cauldron of Gold----The Solar Womb. Male force is Electric, making the Lightning bolts appropriate symbols, and female force is magnetic which contains electric force, making the cups and cauldron appropriate symbols. The Fire is the representation of the Fiery Spirit force of Kether (Crown) who is the Source of Mother/Father God.This is a Forged creation called " Living-Matter" which because of the Art of the Great Mother and Father,the combining of His/Her Forces with the Heated Spirit Passion To Be, is more than the sum of its parts because it Lives after the forging.
Binah, in this formation, is the Womb Preserving Life ,as are the Sun and the Moon union, the preservers of Earth Life.
 With Her Art, Binah controls  and restricts natural energy making sure that all states of the One Energy are bound (magnetic) and restricted (time-space) and manipulate (electric) within those restrictions and boundaries by the Will that is Spirit which forges the Original Personality of the Divine Child. Knowing this, I supplied another image for you, hoping it will aid in understanding. There upon a amethyst Dragon,(the serpentine embodiment of Fire) sits the Womb preserving life as a winged (wings represent "other worldly" existence.) woman/fairy, with the silvery moon orb, and the mineral kingdom of earth....in this picture you may not see that multicolored LED lights shine through the crystals like flickering flames (but they do as an actually figurine of my web-store product line). While this is in fact a very pretty representation of The Art of the Great Mother, it also bespeaks of Great Ferocious Power of the Serpentine forces controlled and tamed by Her.
The Art Card-the Path of Samekh, runs between Tiphareth (Beauty) and  Yesod (foundation) on the Middle Pillar of the Tree of Life (see lower illustration) . Yesod as foundation, is the Prop for earthly manifestation of life forms. The Path between Tiphareth and Yesod is the Great Mother as the "power of bringing forth in humanity the Divine Child or the Christ."{From the book: Voice of Isis by Hariette and Homer Curtis] . Qabbalistically, this is expressed as the knowledge and conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel that assists us in the Rising on the Path of Art, a rhythm of "baby steps" which leads to our bearing of the Child, which is ourselves reborn. In other words, we are able to claim our inheritance as the Divine Children of All Mother/Father God. To be more explicit our bodies become the Honey Moons suite of the Divine Couple as they combine within us and actually change our Temper, but like all sexual unions it is done in a matter of steps!
Key 14 is the beginning of a divine awareness of the Higher Self of Tiphareth brought about through an exchange and balance of opposites that can only be symbolically described. Crowley shows this as Fire becomes Water and Water becomes Fire which is an actual alchemical physical manifestation in the body of the Initiate on the Path of Samekh. This merging of opposites, tempers the energy opposites in the body (as water tempers heated iron) and is shown as Steam being poured back and forth between the cup an cauldron (a flow of opposites represented as 8). The Living Water/consciousness merged with Fiery Spirit is a sexual communion; a vital dance of restricted and bound forces that make all life possible. In the Initiate, this is experienced as a energy flowing orgasmic a rhythm that never stops and slowly gains in Power. The symbol of an arrow (in the Thoth Deck card the arrow is a surrealistic design on the Robe of the figure) being released upward is representative of Spiritual Orgasm often called the Ecstasy and is often refereed to as the Rapture. Let me tell you, this tempers you! It is indeed Ecstatic to feel Your Divinity flow within your body....but this comes only after the fiery forge and hammering of your personality, one blow at a time, with continual dipping in to the Conscious of Mother as the Intelligence of Probation. This is the "Dark night of the Soul" experience that terrifies the little ego's of man made humans for it is a perspective change from "I-me-mine" of the self -absorbed blame seeker, into the Powerful SELF-RESPONSIBLE Perspective of the Divine Child of I AM. By observing the Tree of Life, you can see that there is a Left hand Path, a Middle Path and the Right Hand Path. The Path of Samekh is the Proclaimed Middle Path of the Christ. The Left hand path is of the Goddess and the right Hand Path is of the God. We are the Gnosis (Knowledge) of the Middle Path, the Honey-Moon-Suite of Their Creative Dance. As you can see, this card is so packed full of information it requires hours of meditation and research , only a small part of which I can share here. If this card shows up in a reading, it means a composition of opposites are coming, or will come together by Divine Intervention to preserve the spiritual-living progress of the Querent. This can be severe, as all forging is, but it is to expand and liberate your personality from the hell of man made definition. Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
