Different authors on Crowley give me different placements, also Crowley himself seems to differ.
I have drawn out several trees with conflicting placements and was looking for a little help.
So basically I want to know on which Sephira/Sephiroth to place the following:
These are formulas not entities (with the exception of Babalon), just so you are aware. However
, unlike what some of the others have told you, formula's absolutely fall to specific places on the Tree of Life (as does everything). I believe others have probably given you Hadit, Therion, AIWAZ, etc so I will just cover the formula.
ABRAHADABRA is at 6, Tiphareth for fairly obvious reasons, and it also has a spot at the paths this formula is at 18 Qoph, The Way of the Scarab. (It should also be noted, just so there is no misunderstanding, that although "ABRAHADABRA" is a formula for a central, and extremely important piece of the work it is not
the actual "completion of the work" as someone else mentioned, it is the "completion of the Great Work
" which is the process of attaining Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel and learning and accomplishing one's True Will.)
BABALON, of course, corresponds to Binah, 3.
AGAPE belongs to Samekh (Path 14).
THELEMA is not clearly given in any texts as far as I know. This formula (θέλημα) corresponds to Chokma which shares with the other formula FIAOF (VIAOV, UIAOU, however you wish to spell it it is basically Crowley's version of IAO, reworked to add up to 93).
This shouldn't be two separate words, it is "Solve et Coagula" an alchemic idea that roughly translates to "dissolve and coagulate".
Hope those can help.
