The Great work to a Qabalist, is to bring all of the Above states of Energy, Conscious, and Emotion, of the Divine Creative into and through their living physical body, thereby becoming the connection of Beauty that is Tipareth (6th Sephira) which brings the above and the bellow together as a Buddha or Christ Consciousness.

Crowley and Lady Freda Harris, illustrated this card on the basis of 3, Binah's number, showing 3 wheels at 3 points in the pyramid. This grouping of Three, is shown in Alchemy as Mercury, Sulfur, and Salt; or in Qabalah as the maternal letters Shin (Fire) Mem (Water) and Aleph (Air). These wheels also faithful represent the Three Guna system of the Hindu philosophies.
If you are interested in Hindu system of Guna, the three wheels, are Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the Indian philosophical concept "Guna". For other uses, see Guna (disambiguation).
Guṇa (Sanskrit: गुण) depending on the context means 'string, thread or strand', or 'virtue, merit, excellence', or 'quality, peculiarity, attribute, property'. The concept originated in Samkhya philosophy, but now a key concept in various schools of Hindu philosophy.
There are three guṇas, according to this worldview, that have always been and continue to be present in all things and beings in the world. These three gunas are called: sattva (goodness, constructive, harmonious), rajas (passion, active, confused), and tamas (darkness, destructive, chaotic). All of these three gunas are present in everyone and everything, it is the proportion that is different, according to Hindu worldview.
There is no single word English language translation for the conceptguna. The usual, but approximate translation is "quality".
The Thoth Card Pyramid seems to be arising out of a Great Sea, that represents Binah, the Third Sephira on the Tree of Life, known as "Understanding" and all that is Form comes from her understanding of Life Form.
This Qabalistic Tarot card also represents the Material establishment of the Universe as determined by its basic form of 3. The influence of Mars is in the Red- tint.
The Babylonian Tarot, 3 of Disks- Work, depicts the goddess Uttu, "the trust worthy woman", as its central message.
The Babylonian's were are hard working people, much like the civilizations of today.
Their diligent effort, and the fertility of the land, between the two rivers of the Tigris and Euphrates, meant a surplus of food.
Therefore, they could develop trades besides agriculture. These black smiths, potters, weavers, millers, teachers, scribes, merchants, doctors, wheelwrights, soldiers, canal diggers and many more, could trade their services or goods for food.
Babylonian women ran the household, and were fully engaged in the raising of children and various household tasks. Therefore, one Babylonian goddess, Uttu, was closely associated with home and hearth. She was also the goddess of weaving, therefore the spider, the master weaver of nature, was her sacred totem.
In the narrative poem, Enki and the world order, the god of wisdom (The Hebrew-Chokmah) puts various deities in charge of different occupations. Enki, put his daughter, Uttu, in charge of spinning, weaving, jewelery and clothing making, and everything "which is a woman's task". Uttu's manual dexterity in weaving, earned her the title of "Skillful Woman". She was the Sumerian ideal of a good mother and wife.
On the Babylonian Tarot Card, Uttu is shown spinning thread, accompanied by her sacred animal, a spider in a web.The 3 disks at the top of the card, bear a likeness of a lion fish, and 2 which bear the image of the "goat fish" or suhurmasu, which is the astrological image of Capricorn as well.
