28. My head is jewelled with twelve stars; My body is white as milk of the stars; it is bright with the blue of the abyss of stars invisible.
29. I have found that which could not be found; I have found a vessel of quicksilver.

Quote: 28. My head is jewelled with twelve stars; My body is white as milk of the stars; it is bright with the blue of the abyss of stars invisible.
This verse appears to be describing The Empress in the Rider/Waite and PFC/JBP Tarot decks along with the crossing/intersecting of the 14th (The Empress) and 13th (The Priestess) paths on the Tree of Life. Interesting :wink:
Quote: 29. I have found that which could not be found; I have found a vessel of quicksilver.
Possibility the hidden light of Kether, or the 13th path of gimel…. can't tell for sure :?
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.”

Verse 28 here brought to mind the book of Revelation 12:1 which may have also influenced the Rider/Waite deck:

Revelation 12:1 wrote:A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;


Here the symbol brings most to mind Nuit. The Angel appears as the totality of existence. This occurs after the last verse where union with the angel is highlighted and this brings Nuit even more to mind.

To find what cannot be found is interesting. That "thing" that is constantly fleeing, something you can never quite put your finger on, and then, aha, "I got it"!
