Qabbalah
By:
Post # 1
Hello, this is my own work I have compiled here one of the necessary studies to work in high Magick (I left out qabalistic correspondences "Liber 777" is a good book for them"

1.Qabbalah

1a. What is the Qabbalistic tree of life ( source Wikipedia )

The Tree of Life, or Etz haChayim ( ) in Hebrew, is a classic descriptive term for the central mystical symbol used in the Kabbalah of esoteric Judaism, also known as the 10 Sephirot. The symbolic configuration of 10 spiritual principles (11 can be shown, of which - Keter and Da'at are interchangable), arranged in 3 columns/pillars, describes the manner in which God creates existence ex nihilo, the nature of revealed divinity, the human soul, and the spiritual path of ascent by man. In this way, Kabbalists developed the symbol into a full model of reality, using the tree to depict a map of Creation.

1b. What are the sephiroths

Kether-crown
Chockmah-wisdom
Binah-understanding
Chesed-kindness
Geburah-Severity
Tiphareth-beauty
Netzach-eternity
Hod-spleandour
Yesod-Foundation
Malkuth-kingship

1c. Planetary correspondences

Kether-Pluto
Chockmah-Uranus
Binah-Saturn
Geburah-mars
Chesed-Jupiter
Tiphareth-Sun
Netzach-Venus
Hod-Mercury
Yesod-moon
Malkuth-earth


Hope this helped, 770

I would question any inforation that says Kether and Da'ath are interchangable. Not even close. Other than that, mostly good information.

LVX,

Shawn.

Thanks, I rather got it off Wikipedia in that source, in the script it was more to get an idea of the tree and sephiroth rather then a sefirot.

Thanks

In other correspondences, Malkuth is actually the "Kingdom" rather than kingship... I find it more "illuminating" to one if he would refer to Malkuth as the Kingdom rather than Kingship. Why? Because Kingship is an abstract sense of lordship over a thing... Whilst a Kingdom is a place of many people under a King's rule. Now why is it that I mention this? Because, in other kabbalistic traditions, it is believed that Kether is the God head while the spheres or sephiroht are governed by other creatures according to their orders. It is implied that Malkuth or Kingdom is the earth since it is where we humans reside in and Yesod the foundation to the tree. For me, it becomes a subconscious influence that one would say kingship rather than Kingdom or Vice versa, As stated by Crowley the entire point or idea of Kabbalistic correspondences is one whole set of mnemonics or signs to the subconscious. People usually overlook the influence of such a slight difference in words but it does make a difference.


A kingship is an abstract thought of a king that governs, A kingdom is a place where we reside in governed by a king. There is a difference, even the slightest, it does matter. People may use Kingship or Kingdom whichever works best for them and whichever gets them the best result but by my speculation through the masses the term of "Kingdom" over Malkuth is much more beneficial to the subconscious understanding, but don't take my word for it. Try it out, I urge everyone to scrutinize the difference whilst using Kingdom and Kingship. So experiment and see what works best, after all. Even Crowley clearly wrote at the front pages of The Equinox "The method of Science, The aim of Religion."
