- Yesod of Earth = Foundation in Assiah; matter in harmonious flow; to do a job out of love and in accordance with own nature – this is the essence of Gain; yields, ripe fruits…
- Pleasure, well-being, prosperity; material richness is this harmony in deeds and wishes with TW.
- A seed sown with Love, which blooms and brings forth delicious Fruits: heart full with joy of life.

--------------------------------------------------

- Fertility, creativity; harmonious interaction with own surroundings; adequate approach to things, coming from Love (as “motive”) and the subconscious total focus on Work-as-Service.
- Taking care of and nurturing that which is young and still in its early development.
- Practical action in accordance with the wisdom that says that “the egg is older” (than the hen).
- “Sugar, spice & all things nice”; pleasure from body and all things sensual.
- When automatic consciousness is dedicated/consecrated, all the processes there and all physical experiences become experiences of pure Love- under-Will.

----------------------------------------------

- This card is about the Fruits of Love; only that seed which is nurtured with Love will yield its best fruit.
- Achievement and completeness on material plane; openness & spontaneous harmony in giving and receiving; accordance of own values with those of the environment; absorbing from the environment only that which is most useful and healthy for own development; adaptability which does not impede identity but enriches it; productivity regarding quality rather than quantity; material/physical stability, arising out of harmonious changing with and adapting to the changes of “outer” circumstances; a precious stone/jewel, a diamond (literally and symbolically).
- What are your values, that is your treasure.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."
