Chokmah, the Second Sephiroth called, Wisdom is the Father God principle and
is the first idea of Maleness. Binah, the Mother God named Understanding, is the first idea
of Femaleness. Here God begins the action of Sexual attraction; of the
electric (male) and magnetic (female) actions of the Universal Creation.
God Sex is a hard one to explain to the self-absorbed who think
sexuality as "pleasing moment" of conquest. Those who have felt the deep
and powerful Inner forces of Vital Energy Sexuality are usually unable to mentally
rationalize it. It is stunning and absolute attraction, like lightning
striking. It isn't needy, or manipulative, it is as if two solar-magnets of
opposite polarity just "slam" together without resistance of any kind.
It is so powerful, that there isn't any other person in the world....one
just knows this is the only mate. This purely energetic attraction is beyond
rational thinking and the brain is stunned by it's lack of control over
the fiery situation. The Kingdom of Heaven, is all around you, and it is
built from the attraction of opposites, To understand this powerful attraction we really have to re-think sexuality and understand the attraction of Chokmah and Binah.The Universe is created by this often volcanic and overwhelming activity of Union.
Thoth Deck Knights are the Kings, in many other decks: to Crowley, a king siting
on a throne did not depict the Active power of a Chokmah-King, Thus, he calls
them Knights, which are armored Kings, on mighty-chargers, undaunted and victorious in battle. The Knights represent Yod (hand) forces in
each suit. The Yod is the Radix, and/or Father and commencement of
Material Forces. All other forces are implied here, and as ideas they
develop and commence in the Knight. As if volcanic, the Force of the
Knight is swift, violent action, that also moves on swiftly. Thus the
effects of this force soon pass away.
THE Thoth KNIGHT OF WANDS: is the Lord of Flame and Lightning, king of the
spirits of Fire, King of the Salamanders. To Native Americans, he would be Grandfather Thunderbird.The last Decan of Scorpio and
the first two Decans of Sagittarius are attributed to this card. The
Knight of Wands is Specific Fire in Primal Fire on the Tree of Life.
in a alchemical sense, represents the active-vital Spirit Force of
Movement that is in all Motion and yet it is also the tempering fire
that melds together opposites for the construction of something more
than either one. Spirit Fire is Sexuality; the type of sexuality that annihilates both parties and creates a phoenix out of the ashes.
Crowley card of the Knight of Wands is all about active force, a
leaping black Charger mounted by dark knight, depicting the Dark Fire of
Foundational Dark Energy, that all Visible Light comes from; that
visibility is depicted as surrounding flames. The knights crest is a
horse head, implying the influence of Sagittarius, and he is in armor
implying the qualities of the Spirit Fire that does battle for us all.

characteristics of this Powerful Knight, are qualities of activity,
such as, fierceness, impetuosity, pride, impulsiveness, swiftness in
If negative, he is
evil-minded, cruel, bigoted, and brutal. In either case,His swiftness
gives him no recourse to act otherwise so he is ill fitted to modify his
actions according to circumstances.
The Rider-Waite King of Wands, projects the image Crowley avoided in his Knight card. Her a passive King sits upon a throne holding a leaf sprouting wand. The sprouting leaves, depict vital life force. The little salamander at his feet, and the red gold color of his remnants, are the only implication of his rule over fire. The blue cloth around his neck and shoulders, is the color of the Blue Sophia, Greek Goddess of Wisdom. Wisdom being the name of Chokmah. To many students, the sexuality of the Supernal Triangle, in which Chokmah and Binah
reside, is totally confusing. For Chokmah, is a Hebrew noun for the Greek Goddess of Wisdom, Sophia, yet it is depicted as masculine force. Binah, who is the Mother God principle, is the Female God Principle, yet she is also attributed to the planet Saturn who is Cronus the "Grandfather Time" of the zodiac. The Ancient Wisdom said, "...There was no Father God until She named Him Father." This is because, She is the mother of all form, thus definitions belong to her. The Sexuality of God is the Attraction of Opposites, electro-magnetic and not necessarily the sexuality of any species. It more like the blending of colors, for instance, when red and blue unite, we get purple.Red and blue are both annihilated in this communion process, yet purple rises from the union, giving a more powerful expression of the two who become one. It is the human body that gives sensation to this blending of power, and I am personally grateful for the experience.

power, is often seen as arrogance by the weak of conviction, so this
person is either Loved or hated, without gray area acquaintances. Those
who doubt themselves, will be inclined to follow and thus secretly fear
or hate such a powerfully active Spiritual Being who is unconcerned with
how others react to them. Also this will be a person with a Great
Libido, as Spiritual Fire and Sexuality are invariably linked, this is
also a contention amongst the weak who serve reaction rather than
action, thus fearing the mortality of their flesh. Those who serve comfort, as in "to avoid pain", will practice all manners of character assassination when speaking about such a powerful spirit being. For example, Prometheus, the Greek God-man who gave the Fires of Zeus to mankind, became Lucifer to the Christians.
