“‘I turned me about thrice in every way; and always I came at the last unto Thee.’ For Thou art hidden in every thing I love, in all that I desire.”


HEBREW LETTER: Kaf, palm. It means “hand,” particularly the palm or grasping aspect thereof; and, more generally, any curve or cycle, e.g., “dish”; and thus the concept of circularity. The closing hand also signifies a developing grasp of a situation, co-signified by this letter-name’s other literal meaning, “rock, cliff.” Ru, wheel, breath; circulation of blood and breath; thus, getting and storing prana. Note analogy of Kaf Peh to Kappa Phi.

CARD NAME: “Wheel” comes from the Indo-European root khel-, “to revolve, move around, sojourn, dwell.” Other words stemming from this root include many Jupiter-themed words such as colony, cult, cultivate, culture, as well as cycle, cyclone, collar, pole, pulley. Other occult-themed words from this same Indo-European root include talisman (from the Greek telos, “completion of a cycle”) and chakra (from Sanskrit cakram, “circle, wheel”). – “Fortune” comes from the Latin fortuna, from fors, “chance”; but note its relationship to fortis, “strength”!

ESOTERIC MEANING: The Consciousness of the Desired, Which Fulfills. It receives the divine Influence that flows into it as a result of the blessing it confers upon all that exists.

TREE of LIFE: Netzach to Chesed. (Links ‘Victory’ and ‘Mercy’; or Desire with Memory. The sanctification of one’s desire in the RECOLLECTION that the HGA is the One Desire reflected in each manifest expression of desire. “Fortune” befits this path between two benefics.)

ESOTERIC TITLE: The Lord of the Forces of Life

TANTRIC & ALCHEMICAL SIGNIFICANCE: “Lord of the Forces of Life.” [Kaph Peh = Kappa Phi = kteis + phallos, “a unity of supreme attainment and delight.”

DIVINATION: Change in fortune. Usually means good fortune and happiness, a “turn for the better” (since the fact of consultation implies anxiety or discontent). Law, rhythm, pattern, cycles. Intoxication of success.

"To advance—that means Work. Patient, exhausting, thankless, often bewildering Work. Dear sister, if you would but Work! Work blindly, foolishly, misguidedly, it doesn’t matter in the end: Work in itself has absolute virtue." -Magick Without Tears
