XI
LUST

(Leo)

“Thou art the Rose to my cross – find new life in my heart! Thou art the Moon to my Sun, and I the wine to thy cup – I pour the whole of me into Thee.”

MEDITATION COLOR: Yellow (possibly golden).

HEBREW LETTER: Teth, serpent; more literally, that which is coiled and resembles a serpent (“serpent power”). The alchemical “lion.”

CARD NAME: “Lust,” especially meant here in the sense of “intense eagerness or enthusiasm; pleasure, relish,” comes from the Indo-European root las-, “to be eager, wanton, unruly.”

ESOTERIC MEANING: The Consciousness of the Secret of All Spiritual Activities. It is so called because of the influence disseminated by it from the Highest Blessing and the supernal Glory.

TREE of LIFE: Geburah to Chesed. (Links ‘Strength’ and ‘Mercy’; or Volition and Memory. Mercy weds Severity. The sanctification of one’s strength and volition in the RECOLLECTION that the HGA is the One Strength and One Will reflected in each manifest expression of strength and will. Kingship. NOTE: The intersection with Gimel is one of the most important features in the card.)

ESOTERIC TITLE: The Daughter of the Flaming Sword

TANTRIC & ALCHEMICAL SIGNIFICANCE: The marriage as it occurs in Nature (that is, the real marriage, rather than the ceremonial formality of Zayin. The Serpent that unites the opposites in ecstasy. BABALON and THE BEAST (Moon and Sun) conjoined.

DIVINATION: Courage, strength, fortitude, energy, action, une grande passion, joy in desire. Employment of magick; use of magick power. Manifestation and control of the life-power.

"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

93 All,

Every time, I look at this Atu, I see the Hebrew letter Teth and the number nine which is Yesod on the Tree of life. It is the home of the Nephesh.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nephesh The animal soul. Using the Tarot Atu's to spell Nephesh, you get Death Atu-13, The Tower Atu-16, and The Aeon Atu-20.
AL III,17: “Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth. Nu is your refuge as Hadit your light; and I am the strength, force, vigour, of your arms.”
