Thoth Deck Tarot: BINAH: Understanding & The Four- Threes and Queens

The Third Sephiroth on the Tree of Life is Binah, and means: Understanding. For Wisdom (Chokmah), only understood, can be made into form.
The four Threes, and the four Queens are ruled by Binah. 
Binah's symbols are:
  • The Yoni
  • the Triangle
  • the Cup
  • and the Hebrew letter-Heh
Her planet is Saturn and Her color is Black. She is the Dark Womb, before form, and as such she is known as the "will to form". Light is born of Her, out of Understanding of "self-image".
  1. She is the Supernal Mother.
  2. The organizer and counterbalance of Chokmah. She is.the requiter. 
  3. The dark Sterile Mother-The Crone
  4. She is the bright fertile Mother. 
  5. She is the Great Sea . The Mari.

The Principle symbol of Binah, is the Yoni, a Sanskrit word for female vagina. I know her as, "The womb with a view"., indicating that she is Force of Form, from which all Life emerges. This Great Womb, is known to every culture, with many names. She is the completion of the Upper Supernal Triangle, which began as a Point, in Kether, and a Line in Chokma and a Triangle in Binah.
Now before you get all Victorian, and shudder at the sexuality, think upon this: The Primary Female, Binah, stands at the head of the Pillar of Severity . While the Primary Male Sephira is Chokma and he stands at the head of the Pillar of Mercy.
The Qabalistic definition of sexuality is about qualities rather than static forms of sex. The Soul is ultimately hermaphrodite.
 The Male quality is called Mercy because it is unrestricted, energy ejaculated outward; Electric. The Female qualities of Energy are restrictive, thus form is made out of energy-in-motion, a type of oppression we call Magnetic. Thus a Severe limiting quality is applied.
The fact that our concepts of gender are insufficient to describe the subtleties of polarities and interactive energy in this Universe is shown throughout history. For instance, The Goddess Isis, is the key figure for Binah. Yet, the male Gods Chronos and Saturn are also attributed to this Sephira. Here, we can see the Dark side of Time, as Saturn, heavy and gloomy and as Chronos who symbolizes Time...yes Time is the Greatest Predator of All living things. Thus we have the Crone image of Binah. 
Yet this isn't all, for beneath Binah on the Pillar of Severity we find the God Mercury in Hod and at the base of The Pillar of Mercy, we find the Goddess Venus in the Sephira Netzach. The anthropomorphism of the qualities of Intelligent Energy, binds us to Sexual figures as energy is at once expressed and then confines.  By understanding the 1st Law of Thermodynamics, you may see the problem of sexing the qualities of energy.  The Law states: "There is only one Energy that cannot be created nor destroyed, only transformed." These Transformations, are caused by Qualities of expression-he and repression-She. I find it best to say that She is Magnetic and He is Electric. Thus, the value statements of the mundane are not involved in any misunderstanding.
So the restrictive nature of Will to Form (Binah) is a discipline imposed on the ejaculation/expression of Chokma . At the same time She is the Great Unconscious Sea from which all life emerges.
Binah is described in the Qabalistic Mysteries as "The Dark Robe of Concealment", the Great Dark Sea, In the Golden Dawn texts, as She is described thus: "In Binah is thick darkness which yet veileth the Divine Glory in which all colors are hidden, wherein is mystery and depth and silence, and yet it is the habitation of the Supernal Light." Many us also know that "our dark-side" resides in the Unconscious.
As Bright Fertile Mother, Binah gives life by restriction---the First Law of Form. And as Law giver she is the Dark Sterile Mother. This duality is found in Yesod--The Moon, who reflects the Sunlight into Malkuth- The material plane. Mythology has given us the Bright Moon- Diana and the Dark Moon- Hecate, one is the adverse of the other. 

However,Binah is not a belief system, as she which is understood as She is called the "Parent of Faith" in the Qabalistic mysteries, Thus, she is an organization of discipline behind faith...a Sanctifying Intelligence, as Paul Foster Case named her in his text, THE THIRTY TWO PATHS OF WISDOM/  Thus she is the Parent of the organized disciplines of reason, science, and intellectuality.  
Tomorrow's blog begins with the Three of Wands and the underlying principles of the Four Threes, 
Thank you for your interest and understanding, May you live long and prosper!
