Path # 21



Qualities: Enlightenment, manifestation of full potential, success, accomplishment, prize, completion, liberation from blocks, the end of a journey, a cross, mark and final destination.

This final path ties FOUNDATION and KINGDOM, bringing everything from above into the material plane of physical existence. Governed by Saturn, the planet responsible for crystallizing thoughts into matter, this road transforms the intangible into concrete blocks of reality. The sphere of Foundation blends all the power of the first nine spheres and then shoots it into Kingdom. It is the path of completion, the path that connects the Moon with Earth. It requires patience and persistence. Just as it took human evolution millions of years to send a man to the Moon, it will take time and work before all your own personal projects, all your own personal karma, blossom once and for all.

Affirmation: I am at One with the divine. The Universe bears witness that I am Light.

Psalms 119: 169-176 “Give me Understanding according to Thy law”

Astrological Aspect: Planet Saturn, ruler of Capricorn

TarotCard: The UNIVERSE depicts a woman dancing with a snake. The woman represents Eve, who has attained enlightenment by making peace with the very creature that caused her fall from paradise. By embracing your enemies and setbacks, you can transcend the limitations of matter. 

Challenges: Frustration, lack of persistence, falling into a rut. Overly stubborn and materialistic. A tendency to misuse other people and step over bodies to achieve your own goals.

Hebrew Letter: ת Tav, the final letter, means "cross," "sign" or "tone." It denotes the cross, the sign or the song set down at the end of the road as a symbol of triumph and dreams fulfilled. It is the flag stuck into the surface of the moon, into your new frontier.





Path # 20


Path of Resurrection - The Way of Rebirth
Qualities: Final decision, finding God within, self analysis and criticism, transformation, fire, inner reflection.

Description: This path unites KINGDOM, the material plane, with SPLENDOR on a road of resurrection. It stands for Judgment Day, the moment when everything that is dead or swept under the carpet returns to the Light. Take care of your past and the collective past of all sentient beings. Bring dead feelings and dead ideas back to life. Before we experience enlightenment, everything must be exposed to Light and healed. This is a path for self-analysis; not to find fault or pin blame, but to fix and correct all wounds. We need the past to help us avoid a repetition of our mistakes. Those who walk on this road possess the strength to handle any demons they might uncover.

Affirmation: I am open to wisdom and understanding. I am willing and ready to confront my darkest fears so that I could transform them to my source of light..

Psalms 119: 161-168 “Seven times a day do I praise Thee”

Astrological Aspect: Planet Pluto, ruler of Scorpio
Tarot Card: JUDGEMENT symbolizes not a day of punishment, but a time to reflect on our past behavior. This card triggers the resurrection of the divine powers in each of us.

Challenges: Getting lost in the past, manipulative, abusive. 

Hebrew Letter: ש Shin means "Tooth," the organ that sows wisdom (wisdom tooth). And just as teeth can be used to determine a person's age (long in the tooth), Shin helps us reflect on our days gone by. As one of the three maternal letters (along with Aleph and Mem), Shin rules the element of fire.

Description: This path links FOUNDATION with SPLENDOR on a creative journey of fulfillment, success and spirituality. Known as the path of the Solar Child, it brings ecstasy and a complete surrender to the dance of life. Vitality and freedom rule. Charismatic leaders, who rely on joyous persuasion rather than coercion, walk here, making others happy with their own happiness. Laughter is their flag. But you must remember that the energy comes from on high, not from yourself alone.

Affirmation: I am a child of light, an ambassador to the divine. I open my heart to shine forth God’s love.

Psalms 119: 153-160 “Great are Thy compassions, O Lord.”

Qualities: The destruction of false attitudes and behavior patters, liberation, power, pure force, fire, destruction, war, battles, new beginning, resurrection out of the ashes, spiritual renewal.

Description: This path ties Victory with Splendor in a journey that cleanses with fire, the most powerful form of purification we know. It is one of the three paths (along with #4 and #8) that joins the right and left pillars. It purges all false philosophies in preparation for a paradigm shift. It is not easy to set fire to something that you believe you need. It is even harder to sever yourself from someone you love. In order to connect the two opposing pillars on a practical level, we must cut out all extremes on both sides. It might require the elimination of anyone and anything that we cling to too tightly.

Affirmation: What does not kill me makes me stronger. I know that even the most difficult challenge is for the best. I am now being trained by life to be a powerful warrior.

Psalms 119: 129-136 “Thy testimonies are wonderful, therefore my soul keeps the.”

Astrological Aspect: Mars, ruler of Aries and Scorpio

Tarot Card: The TOWER, a depiction of the Tower of Babel (our ego) being destroyed by a lightning bolt (awareness). The destruction of the tower denotes the elimination of everything that blocks us from our true identity.

Challenges: Violence, aggression, and self-centeredness.

The Path of the Mystic - The Way of the Scarab
Qualities: Illusions, psychic powers, feminine mysteries, subconscious, overcoming fears, Tikkun, drugs, dependency and addictions, madness, dreams, biological change, hearing God’s voice. 

Description: The path connects KINGDOM, our material world, with the ETERNITY of the divine realm. It is the road of the Scarab, the holy beetle of ancient Egypt that rolls the Sun back into the sky every dawn. Here we encounter the threshold that joins the spiritual with the earthly. Focus on using the material to enhance the spiritual (donations and philanthropic work) as well as on using the spiritual to increase the material (creative visualization). The subconscious and psychic energies reward those on this journey. The sensitive and imaginative on this road often channel information from higher dimensions. This mystical path can be difficult, but those who dare it are often able to open new worlds for themselves and others.

Affirmation: It is in the darkest moment that light shines forth. I am reconnecting to the great mother Shechinah (goddess). I know that by being receptive and open, life will support me and my loved ones.

Psalms 119: 145-152 “I have called with my whole heart; answer me, O Lord”

Astrological Aspect: Pisces

Tarot Card: The MOON connects to dreams, meditation and the ability to see in the darkness of the night. The Moon functions as the doorway to the feminine powers and mysteries. Only through love can they be unveiled.

Challenges: Illusions, wrong turns, gullibility, dependency, a lack of limits and boundaries. Losing yourself in the other, addictions, escapism, alcohol and drugs.

It merges the expansive giving nature of the right pillar with the reproductive force of Foundation. It is the path of the givers, altruists and the Water Bearer, who selflessly bestows the water of life to all. Hope, future and helping others reign. People on this course often seem a bit strange, but they must not be dissuaded from their unique mission. Rebels, innovators and geniuses who strive for a new way find their strength here.

Affirmation: I am an antenna for awareness and consciousness. I am here to do God’s biddings and spread the word of love.

Psalms 119: 137-144 “Thy righteousness is everlasting righteousness.”


Astrological Aspect: Aquarius

Challenges: Too weird, eccentric, overly cerebral and scientific. Illusions and false hopes.

Hebrew Letter: צ Tzadik means "hook." Associated with meditation, it is like a barb thrown into the waters of the subconscious to fish for realizations and enlightenment. This letter also suggests a saint or righteous person.





Path # 15


Path of Gravity - The Way of Practicality
Qualities: practicality, order, conservatism, being stuck, tradition, status qua, career, ambition, discipline, success, humor, fear, temptation, being grounded. 

Description: This path connects BEAUTY and SPLENDOR. It demands the practical implementation of a person's earthly talents and determined toil. This path offers success, but the price is patience, persistence and an element of faith. The seeker needs to balance the restrictions of the left column with the beauty of the heart. Sincerity in word and deed is paramount. Splendor provides all the information we need, but facts and figures often mislead and deceive. Connecting to the heart ensures that the message is true. Avoid lies and the tendency toward self-absorption. Use your talents in service of others. Reach outward.

Affirmation: I can achieve all my ambition; success is already in the palm of my hand. I am a proof that discipline, persistence and endurance can manifest dreams.

Psalms 119: 121-128 “I have done justice and righteousness; leave me not to mine oppressors.”

Astrological Aspect: Capricorn

Tarot Card: The DEVIL symbolizes our own personal Underworld, the seat of the subconscious and the issues we never want to face. The Devil is the force that pulls us downward, forcing us to dig deeper. It is not evil but merely a call to practicality.

Challenges: Fear, panic, suffering and abuse of others. Too earthly, selfishand cynical.

Hebrew Letter: ע Ain means "eye." There is always more than what meets the eye. The inner eye can see beyond the physical form.



Path # 14


Path of Alchemy - The Way of the Rainbow
Qualities: Travel, foreign cultures, higher education, truth, philosophy, alchemy, inner change, optimism, luck and synchronicities.


Description: This path links BEAUTY AND FOUNDATION, the Sun and the Moon. It is the road of alchemy, upon which you blend all four elements to create the gold of perfection. The synchronizer-the person who understands what's in and what's out, where things grow and where they decay-will walk this way. It demands an optimistic outlook on life as well as confidence that you can overcome any obstacle and magically create what looks and sounds impossible. This path always supplies new beginnings and new opportunities. This is the path of connection to foreign cultures, traveling and higher education.

Affirmation: I am open to learning and teaching the Truth about myself and life in general. I am the alchemy between action and reception, giving and receiving. I trust the One to provide me with all I need.

Psalms 119: 113-120 “Thy art my covert and my shield.”

Astrological Aspect: Sagittarius

TarotCard: The TEMPERANCE card symbolizes the effort to balance the masculine andfeminine archetypes of the universe to transmute the mundane stuff of life into the Gold of creativity and success.

Challenges: Overly optimistic and an over-reliance reliance on luck. Confusion as a result of too many options. 

Hebrew Letter: ס Samekh translates as "Trust" or "closeness." It demonstrates the importance of certainty, trusting that no matter the impediment, failure or disaster it is there for a reason. Eventually these snags will lead to critical spiritual growth. This letter contains the secret of optimism and the constructive use of luck and synchronicities. Things change.



path # 13



Path of Intimacy - The Way of Transformation
Qualities: Transformation, intensity, dealing with death, inheritance, sexuality, healing, criminal behavior, death and resurrection, dangers coming from outside, change that is forced by external circumstances. 

Description: This path links BEAUTY and ETERNITY on a road designed to enhance transformation. Any kind of transformation involves a bit of death and destruction as we clear out the old and plant the new. Every death, however, is followed by a birth, by regeneration. Secrets, investigation, research, intimacy and sexuality call for attention here. This road teaches that nothing lasts forever, not even beauty. It should be respected for its great abilities both to heal and destroy. It teaches the importance of working with and combining other people's talents and money to further a higher aim.

Affirmation: I accept death, knowing it would lead to a rebirth. I am guided by life to a deeper intimacy with the hidden parts of my soul.

Psalms 119: 105-112 “Thy word is lamp unto my feet and light unto my path.”

Challenges: Fear of death, fear of change, fear of intimacy. Hyper-sexuality, jealousy, possessiveness, emotional manipulation and abuse.

Hebrew Letter: נ Nun means "a fish" in Aramaic, an ancient language that resembles Hebrew. It evokes the fish that swims in the deep dark seas, the deep ocean that symbolizes intimacy and intense emotional energy.



Path # 12




Path of Letting Go - The Way of New Perspective

It will demand that you relinquish old beliefs and behaviors, sacrifice your ego, and let go and flow with the Tao. New perspectives and ideas abound. Try changing the direction of your bed, move some furniture around, so something you have not done before. Since this path marks the lower and more practical half of the left column, acting on all new information and instincts is also vital. Stay alert to the path's mother lode of psychic energy, telepathy, precognition and ESP.

Psalms 119: 97-104 “How sweet are Thy words unto my palate”

Affirmation: I accept all my challenges, knowing they are my greatest teachers. I grow by letting go and surrendering to a higher power.

Astrological Aspect: Planet Neptune, ruler of Pisces

By examining the world from a radically different vantage point, one discovers all sorts of new ideas, images and perspectives. This card suggests that we sacrifice our Ego, our usual habits, and give ourselves up to higher ideals.

Challenges: Dependency and codependency, a tendency to remain stuck in destructive situations and relationships, escapism, gullibility, daydreaming, a problem differentiating between reality and fantasy.

Hebrew Letter: מ Mem means "water." It is one of the three maternal letters along with Aleph and Shin, which correspond to the three elements: water, air and fire. Life started in water. It is the most common element on the surface of our planet. Water flows, resisting nothing, pouring easily around anything that stands in its path.

To connect to this path, make an effort to redesign your work or living space.

Affirmation: I am in harmony with life, balanced and in equilibrium. Justice will prevail and I will be rewarded for all my efforts. I generate peace and tranquility to all my relationships.

Psalms 119: 89-96 “I have seen an end to every purpose”

Astrological Aspect: Libra

Tarot Card: The LADY OF JUSTICE symbolizes the balanced decisions demanded on this route. She holds the scales of justice, but her eyes are blindfolded to prevent her from being influenced by the outer appearance of those she judges. Don't be overly swayed by external beauty. Don't let your eyes deceive your better judgment. 

Challenges: Superficiality, confusing outer with inner beauty. Blindness to problems or difficulties, indecisiveness, hypocrisy. 

Hebrew Letter: ל Lamed means both to teach and to learn. Hebrew offers no distinction between learning and teaching. A true teacher always learns when he teaches and a true student teaches while she learns. That give and take epitomizes the same balance required to build functioning relationships. Lamed stands precisely in the middle of the Hebrew alphabet, further stressing this road's mandate for equilibrium.

It calls you to find your center, avoid excess and function as a wise guide. Another name for this road is "The Heart of Compassion," requiring you to find your inner wealth and share it with others. Pay attention to small details, order and tidiness. Learn and teach humility.

Affirmation: I enjoy my seclusion knowing I can always invite people to join me when I want. I am pure, clean and ready to serve my higher self.

Psalms 119: 73-80 “Thy hands have made me and fashioned me.”

Astrological Aspect: Virgo

TarotCard: The HERMIT symbolizes the pure man. He has cleansed himself of most physical yearnings and seeks to show the way to others who are still chained to the world's mortal coils. The Hermit serves the Light, understanding that to reach the One, humans must dive within and work on their internal world.

Challenges: Overly critical as exemplified by the "Inch Worm," which counts the flowers instead of smelling them. Perfectionism, faultfinder, hostility toward life, unemotional, over attention to detail. Losing the forest for the trees.

Hebrew Letter: י Yod means "The sperm of God." It is the smallest of all the Hebrew letters, but its shape serves as the building block for all the others. Yod also means "Hand"-the same hand in which the Hermit holds the Light for everyone else.



Path # 8




The Path of the Flaming Sword - The Way of Creativity.
Qualities: Illustrious, vitality, love, romance, children, creativity, entertainment, stardom, strength and spirituality.

Description: This path connects MERCY and SEVERITY. It stands as the ultimate or central connection between the right and left columns of the Tree. This path evokes creativity and romance, the marriage between masculine and feminine energies on the level of the heart. Strength, power, authority and great will power guide this connection.

Affirmation: I am full for strength vitality and happiness. I can create my own destiny and manifest all my wishes. I am ready to share my joy and love with all those that surround me!

Psalms 119: 65-72 “The law of Thy mouth is better unto me then thousands of gold and silver.”

Astrological Aspect: Leo

Tarot Card: STRENGTH symbolizes the power that comes from letting go of the ego and becoming a channel for the pure energy of the One. The card depicts a woman effortlessly opening the mouth of a lion. Her strength derives not from her muscles but from her spiritual will. 

Challenges: Ego. Remember: it is not your strength or authority you wield but the power of the Light. Arrogance, self-centeredness, domineering, superiority complex (and its flip side, the inferiority complex). 

Hebrew Letter: ט Tet translates as "Coiled Serpent," the serpent of wisdom and enlightenment. In Hindu tradition, the Kundalini, the energy located at the base of the spine, also means "the coiled serpent." Ideally, this serpent ascends through the spinal cord up to the brain when we attain enlightenment or any connection to God. Both the spinal cord and the heart are ruled by Leo, the astrological sign associated with this path.



Path # 7


The Path of the Vessel of God - The Way of the Child of Waters.
Qualities: meditation, home, family, vehicle to success, focus and new direction, change for the good, health, victory, walls, letting go of the past. 

Description: This path joins UNDERSTANDING with SEVERITY, a road related to family, home, security and hospitality. Love is not an easy concept to Understand and practice. It demands a great deal of attention, discipline, patience and time, which is precisely the reason this path runs between the two most difficult, most restrictive spheres of the Tree. For most of us, the family stands as our central connection to love. It nourishes all kinds of love: unconditional love of the parents to their children, brotherly love between siblings, romantic love between the spouses and friendly love among cousins. But familial love can and often does strangle, restrict and fence us in. We feel it often with family obligations and the psychological neuroses inherent in many parent-child bonds. The family is protected by the home, in a sense the physical vessel for love. But this notion of family doesn't imply blood ties exclusively. People create loving, functioning families at work, with friends and in many other groups and settings. This road of the protected home is also the path of meditation. Meditation requires stillness, inner quiet 
and discipline. Its purpose is to help you find the home within.

Affirmation: I am loved by my family and nurtured by the Universe. I forgive those who have wronged me and ask forgiveness from those I digressed.

Psalms 119: 57-64 “I am companion of all them that love Thee.”

Astrological Aspect: Cancer

Tarot 
Card: The CHARIOT symbolizes the vehicle humankind can use to reach God. One of the oldest Jewish mystical writings was called "Merkavah" or "The Chariot" (Ezekiel 1:1). The Chariot is code for meditation. In meditation, one reaches God by traveling without movement. In this card, the charioteer wears armor to represent the need for protection and security if one is to undertake this journey. This card also connects to the search for the Holy Grail-our inner divine emotional reservoir. 

Challenges: Too protective or overly connected to one's roots, "thechosen people" syndrome. Dependency, selfishness, thick emotional walls, overly sensitive. 

Hebrew Letter: ח Chet means "Fence" or "Wall" that marks the boundaries of the backyard of the home or even the border of a country. It stems from the shell of the crab of Cancer and the need for protection. In other words, the wall around a city that protects it from invaders.




Path # 6


The Path of Logic in the Service of the Heart - The Way of the Lovers.
Qualities: Relationships, love, connection of opposing forces, communication, writers, traders, business, overcoming duality and separation.

Description: The Lovers govern this path between UNDERSTANDING and BEAUTY. Like all love affairs, it can create a lasting union if the partners connect to their heart. But when judgment and misunderstandings dominate, it will end in separation and divorce. Anyone who travels this road must use understanding, logic and the power of reasoning in the service of beauty, love and spirituality. Followers of this road must resist the belief that rationality explains all. Writers, communicators and PR experts of all sorts must all remember that they are merely the messengers, not the message.

Affirmation: I am attracting the right relationships into my life. I surround myself with people that understand and love me. I am a junction for people to connect with each other.

Psalms 119: 49-56 “I have remembered Thy name, O Lord”

Astrological Aspect: Gemini

Tarot Card: The LOVERS denote the two that are One; the ideal union of all dualities. Represented by the astrological sign Gemini-twins, exactly the same, but of different gender, they wield love as the tool that builds unity.

Challenges: Too logical, too much in their head, unemotional. Lies, theft, and a tendency to use the sword of logic to separate rather than unite. Take care to avoid conveying false or distorted messages.

Hebrew Letter: ז Zain stands for both a sword and the male sex organ. They say that the pen is mightier than the sword, but in this case they are one and the same. The sword is the symbol of the powerful intellect, slicing through to the crux of any issue. This letter also translates to penis, the male sex organ. Through loving sexual intercourse, Zain has the potential to foster a perfect union between the masculine and feminine, between 0 and 1, ovum and sperm.



Path # 5


The Path of the Spiritual leader - The Ocean of Wisdom
Qualities: Spiritual teacher, adviser, finance, talent, self worth, intuition, inner voice, connectedness, as above so below, memory, a meeting with a spiritual master.

Description: This path links WISDOM with MERCY, the huge sea of expanding grace and compassion. It marks the way of the spiritual master who facilitates our own connection to the divine. Known as the Ocean of Wisdom, this innovative path is for those charged with unifying the broken and wounded pieces of the creation. Kindness and unconditional compassion dominate here. This highest path of the right pillar of expansion emphasizes the importance of giving and doing for others. A true connector (in spirituality or business) works solely for the benefit of others. With this mindset, the unifier always receives more than he or she needs.

Affirmation: I am my own guide, my own priest, and rabbi. I am on the path to financial security. I receive abundance from the Universe that allows me to give and share my inner as well as my outer wealth.

Psalms 119: 41-48 “I will speak of Thy testimonies before kings, and will not be ashamed”

Astrological Aspect: Taurus

Tarot Card: The HIEROPHANT rules the inner voice, what Kabbalah calls "Bat Kol," literally "the daughter of the Voice." The Hierophant is our internal spiritual leader, who communicates with us via intuition. He attempts to connect our higher self with our consciousness to make us aware of our potential. 

Challenges: Greed, materialism, attachment to objects. Vanity and luxury. Take note of the many religious leaders and gurus who have found their heads puffed up with money, power, sex and dominance over their followers. 

Hebrew Letter: ו Vav means "Nail." Just as nails join two pieces of wood into one, the path of the Ocean of Compassion serves to put things together. In Hebrew, Vav is used as a prefix of union-like in boys "and" girls. It signifies our union with the divine.



Path # 4


The Path of the Provider of Order - The Way of the Liberator
Qualities: Warrior, masculine, powerful, victory, strategy, independence, leadership, initiation, seeds, adventure, boldness, active, new opportunities, and Martial arts.

Description: This path connects WISDOM with BEAUTY. It is the path of civilization, the provider of order. Liberators walk this path, releasing those who surround them from bondage and structuring a life that leads to the balance of the heart. The United States, born on the 4th of July, finds itself here. This road builds order based on a courageous conquering of fear and the opening of new frontiers and clearings in the jungle. It is the path of leaders and reformers, soldiers and warriors of Light. Make sure you start a workout program so that you can embody the martial qualities of this path.

Affirmation: I am powerful and all conquering. I can win all my battles and overcome my challenges. I am leading myself and others to a place of light.

Psalms 119: 33-40 “Quicken me in Thy righteousness”

Astrological Aspect: Aries

Tarot Card: The EMPEROR, the Father who is married to his lover - the Empress (see path #3), represents liberation from internal and external oppression. He protects all those who suffer, and he will not hesitate to wage war to accomplish his higher goals.

Challenges: Rigid-reasoning, self-righteousness, and an inability to act from the heart. Too macho, aggressive, susceptible to dogmatism and tyranny. 

Hebrew Letter: ה Hey means "window." Just as the eyes are the windows to the soul, this path is also a window to our heart and soul. Through this window, via our liberator within, we peer at the horizon of infinite possibilities. This letter represents the path to our "Promised Land." Hey is also an exclamation. "Hey!" is what you shout when someone pushes you. When you want to draw some attention, you yell, "Hey!" Hey is often used as a symbol of God. It signifies the God within, our higher self that seasons all thoughts and ambitions with heart.



Path # 3


Heart Connections - The Way of Love
Qualities: Mother, lunar, moodiness, fluctuations, healing, balance, psychic, intuition, nurturing and caring.

Description: This path, the longest on the Tree, leads from the shining will of the CROWN, the source of Light, to BEAUTY. It is the path of love and nurturing. The Moon, the seat of the goddess within, rules this path. Here you are called to pay attention to the connection between the mind and the heart. Most people struggle to unify their feelings with their logical thoughts. This path can help us all achieve this noble goal. Memory and the collective archive sleep here, as do motherhood, healing and unconditional love. Path #2 suggests duality and relationship but strictly in the service of others. It evokes giving and an end to selfishness. It is the path of healers, nurses and givers of life.

Affirmation: I am at one with my intuition and psychic powers. I trust my inner voice and follow the path of water that will lead me to the endless sea of possibilities.

Psalms 119: 17-24 “Thy servant does meditate in Thy statues”

Astrological Aspect: The Moon

Hebrew Letter: ג The letter Gimel means a camel-the only beast capable of crossing the desert. It is a highly temperamental animal, but also very loyal. It stores its own water (its own sustenance) inside, which allows it to survive on its own for weeks at a time. It serves as a ship ferrying its cargo across the harsh landscape of the desert. The letter is also associated with giving and nurturing others. Gimel also translates into the word “to wean,” which means that you should be careful not to create attachment to those you serve. This is common among people who need to be needed and therefore can develop dependency and codependency.



Path # 2



Heart Connections - The Way of Love
Qualities: Mother, lunar, moodiness, fluctuations, healing, balance, psychic, intuition, nurturing and caring.

Description: This path, the longest on the Tree, leads from the shining will of the CROWN, the source of Light, to BEAUTY. It is the path of love and nurturing. The Moon, the seat of the goddess within, rules this path. Here you are called to pay attention to the connection between the mind and the heart. Most people struggle to unify their feelings with their logical thoughts. This path can help us all achieve this noble goal. Memory and the collective archive sleep here, as do motherhood, healing and unconditional love. Path #2 suggests duality and relationship but strictly in the service of others. It evokes giving and an end to selfishness. It is the path of healers, nurses and givers of life.

Affirmation: I am at one with my intuition and psychic powers. I trust my inner voice and follow the path of water that will lead me to the endless sea of possibilities.

Psalms 119: 17-24 “Thy servant does meditate in Thy statues”

Path # 1



The Path of the Trickster - The Way of Magic
Qualities: mental and physical flexibility, intelligence, trade, information, playfulness, words, magic spells, mantras, will power, skill, agility, creating something out of nothing, cunning, lies, theft, mind over matter.

Description: This path connects the nothingness of the CROWN with the materializing sphere of UNDERSTANDING. It demands that you manifest your will as well as the will of others. Think of the magician who pulls a dove out of thin air. It is the path of mind over matter, the path of the Magician and the master Alchemist. Anyone who puts two people or projects together and then collects a finder's fee walks on this path. The writer, the negotiator and the orator walk on this path as well. The number one symbolizes the energy of the initiator and of leadership. Logic rules here in the guise of a double-edged sword that can either destroy or be used to a greater clarity of understanding. On this path, you create magic if you employ the sword, in the service of the Light. Use your words wisely. They wield enormous power.

Affirmation: I am ready for magic to dissolve my blocks. I am open to all channels of communication and am receptive to messages from within and without. I am the creator of my own life.

Psalms 119: 9-16: “With my lips have I told all the ordinances of Thy mouth.”

Astrological Aspect: The planet Mercury

Card: The MAGICIAN represents the ability in each of us to create what we need and drawing closer to the One. The magician is master of the four elements. He supports his words (air) with action (fire), and he does what he feels (water) is right to achieve his goals (earth). The magician's symbol is infinity. He is the writer, communicator, messenger and trader.

Challenges: Trickery, lies, and deception. Abusing magic and power for one’s own selfish needs. Walking in the shadow, susceptible to darkness.

Hebrew Letter: ב Bet means house or home in Hebrew. It suggests that we must find a home or a structure for all our thoughts. Words contain great creative power both good and bad. Declaring, "I can't make it" will manifest itself just as easily as "I will succeed." Use words with reverence. It is not a coincidence that the Torah, one of the channels of Light into our world, begins with the letter Bet. Aleph, path 0, is potential. This path, #1, brings that potential home to Earth.
