LAMED and BETH

Two cards are profiled. Each card represents a consciousness that corresponds to the highlighted paths on the Tree of Life (Kabbalah) diagrams included with this reading. The intention is for you to watch for the consciousness these cards symbolize to be reflected in the experiences and events of the day

The first card, Justice,  is an archetype card chosen according to the numerology of the day: 2, 4, 2011, or number 11: Justice. The second card is the archetype of The Magician,   a random draw, seeking the ideal card to contemplate in relation to current events this day.

Justice is the path of karmic consequences. The figure on this card sits between the pillars of wisdom and a veil of ignorance hangs in the background. On this path we break through the veils of illusion or deception that harbor ignorance. The square on Justice’s crown represents well-ordered thoughts, law.  Her right hand holds a sword straight up in victory; she dispenses logical fair-minded justice. A sword is double-edged; it cuts both ways, signifying impartiality. The scales are in the figure’s left hand, the intuitive hand, telling us that logic is balanced by intuition. The clasp holding the figure’s robe is a square representing the law that is protecting the wholeness of us all, the circle within. Wholeness requires adherence to impartial karmic balance of the law, good or bad. Consequences must be accepted and harmonized in order for us to master this path. Achieving wholeness on the path of Justice requires breaking through the veils of ignorance with the realization that all is good.

The archetype of The Magician sits on the ‘right hand of the father,” and this consciousness realizes our capability to create reality. The Magician has achieved wholeness; all four-personality types are on the table. The Magician, as shown by his wand raised high in his right hand, is a Master who can create miracles. The White Magician wears the crown of infinite wisdom and his left hand pointing down signifies that his work is for the good of all who operate on the lower levels of consciousness. Note the red roses of desire that adorn the card above and below the figure, “as above, so below.”  The Magician desires heaven on earth. The white lilies symbolize purity of thought, they further emphasize that this is a White Magician in service to the All.  Note the Magician wears a snake belt. The Snake on the Tree of Life symbolizes the life force, the Light of creation that we are all connected too and reflect.  Wholeness for the Magician is to be belted (protected) by the Light.

Please note:

This reading is meant for the practice of Yoga of the West, a Tarot meditation designed to build a bridge of intuition between the reader’s unconscious and conscious mind.  People also consult the cards as an oracle. Caution is advised. An oracle opens the door to spiritual deception as easily as spiritual truth. To read more about Yoga of the West go to http://bit.ly/9BiovO
