Hello, @AJ-ish/Sharyn!

Sorry it took me a while to come back to this thread. Between my regular Daily and the Sacred Days of Yule, I am going to have a busy end of the year!


I have followed my plans for going through the use of all decks in my collection (took 3 years). For 2021, I am going to focus on “alphabets” as oracular. Lunaria Gold’s decks will play a large part as I hope to spend a week per letter/symbol of Phoenician/Hebrew (22) & Greek (24) which will leave me 6 weeks for ogham and/or runes. Perhaps the various assignments of numerology ciphers, such as those featured in the Gematrinator, will be used to play with meanings for names and words as I go along.


> click on Ciphers to see


LOL! I have even gathered pics of Scrabble tile value-variants.

I tend to ramble all over the place with what catches my attention on any given day (sometimes not related) so I hadn't been posting it here on TT&M.


vau ~ the number 6
tent peg, nail, hook, secure, add, conjunction- “and”
• a consonantal vowel (like the yod) U, V, W
a single letter; Iyar/Taurus, hearing
~ musical note G
1.5, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, 96, 192, 384, 768, 1536, 3072, 6144, 12288
Note: 64 hexagrams (I Ching) x6 = 384 lines ~ 9th octave


Sacks writes that the Romans' phonetic sound was the “w” and that V & J are the youngest letters in English. J was born from I.
• on the wheel, V (22) is opposite I (9th); W (23) is opposite J (10th)





Pennick mentions the bright head of a nail reflecting daylight; that the nail is the pivot for the circling heavens (time, 24/12). He also mentions the meaning “liberty” and the association of a doorknob ... open & see the white light!

> Lesesne notes that Iyar is the 2nd month, the Lord your healer Jehovah Rapha. It has also been called Ziv, radiance.
• right kidney, active meridian: 5-7pm
• Exodus, waters of Marah ~ Moses is instructed to throw a tree into it which made it sweet (purified?)
She emphasizes that bitterness extends to the emotional pain & crushed spirit after a trauma; the story of Naomi changing her name because she felt her very identity had changed. (Jesus as the Oak; redeems the worst part of our stories)

> Schurbon notes the astrological & astronomical associations of Orion & the Pleaides/Hyades.
> Hungerford reminds us to watch what comes out of our mouths because it creates a frequency ... (Pollyanna’s ‘Glad Game’)

Seidman writes that vav embraces opposites, inspires us to become agents of connection who help repair the “broken vessels” and restore Shechinah, the Divine Bride (story of Hosea)
Shadow: addiction, codependence

~ the Phoenician Oracle - hook waw
Attachment, commitment, habit, obligation
Plant: terebinth tree; earliest source of turpentine (preservative/sealant)
No associated deity

zayin ~ the number 7
"Z" voiced sibilant; mostly heard, more rarely seen (in spelling)
weapon: sword/spear, tool: mattock/plow/adze, ornament: staff or crown
> cut, cut off; food, nourish
> left leg; walking, progress
• a single letter; Gemini/Sivan - meridian 9-11am

on the wheel of harmony, the Z (26) is opposite to M (13)
mem is Water, a Mother letter

Pennick associates zain with the East direction; the ruler's sword at rest in its scabbard, European chivalry, ornamented staff

Sacks notes all the words written with an 's' while the pronunciation is 'z' (rose, etc) and the differentiation between British & American spellings of words.
• expanded usage by creative types, advertisers, pre-teens/teens, pop culture, tech, audio:sound
• Victor Hugo's memoir notes the Z as lightning/God

Lesesne: month of Sivan's themes are generosity, mercy, alignment
Hungerford: inheritance & new revelation; personal "Mt Sinai" meeting & covenant with God
*musical note: B-flat (concepts of theme and variation)
Schurbon: setting boundaries, internal conflict, hearing/listening
* Old Gate of Jerusalem - where the elders gathered to help solve problems
* tribe of Benjamin's banner features a wolf - the Native American proverb about 2 wolves fighting within (the winner is the one you feed)

Seidman uses the spelling re-member when noting the commandment to keep the Sabbath holy
• holy: blessed, consecrated (set apart for a specified purpose), blissful, right-minded
> joyous decisiveness; the word No
vigilance to protect what is precious

Gal Einai notes Spiritual Struggle and Spiritual Sustenance
• various sets of 7 things


~ the Phoenician Oracle - weapon
Struggle, constraint, endurance, illness
Associated Plant: mint - cleansing, hospitality
Associated Deity: Resheph, god of war, pestilence/fever, lightning
> guardian & gatekeeper of the Sun goddess Shapash
main cult city: Ebla

I woke to an insistent mental voice saying “3, line 5” that kept repeating until I got up and started grabbing all my books & decks related to I Ching and Human Design. Took pics of the Hexagram/Gate cards (& the two Trigrams that make it). Chose color card ‘bookmarks’ in shades used in each book’s cover to mark the place.



Difficulty in the Beginning
Birth Pangs

Gene Keys keynotes & Dream Arc totems:

Chaos - Innovation - Innocence
Adder - Coyote - Puffin

victim of chaotic mind
wound of Guilt

Interpreting: detaching from anticipated results when implementing a new order
• possibility of your intentions being misinterpreted

Today starts my week with chet(h) ~ which has no English letter equivalent for its sound. However, two of the Sephiroth on the Tree of Life start with the sound (although spelling transliterations vary: ch, h, etc). I intend to look at variations of the Etz Chaim and the letter placements on the paths between them.




Chochmah - Wisdom, insight

Chesed - Mercy, grace/lovingkindness


*Hierophant or Pope ~ does your/my/our response to this card bode well for whether the truest role has been expressed?


chupah (wedding canopy)


8 vertices of a cube







8 festivals on the Wheel of Year

Some notes and links ...




chet(h) ~ the number 8
fence, wall, ladder; hedge, chamber
> no English equivalent, but two sephiroth begin with it
chochma - Wisdom; insight
chesed - Mercy; grace, lovingkindness
... Hierophant/Pope joins them
to separate, divide, half
• a single letter; Cancer/Tammuz
body part: right hand
Gift of sight, perception
... 17th day was the smashing of the golden calf (after Moses spent 40 days on Mt Sinai & received the 10 commandments) - note: it is currently Lent!
• component value is vau (6) + zayin (7) = 13
bridge/thin line connecting represents God joining/covering/hovering (chupah - wedding canopy) - doorway, but not the door itself

> vau on right is male; zayin on left is female

the Phoenician Oracle ~ “courtyard”
Security, peace, wealth, prosperity
Associated Plant: pomegranate
Associated Deity: Ba’alat Gebal (Lady)
> a two-feathered headdress
main cult city: Gebal, aka Byblos

Today I am going through my book references on numerology & numbers! There are so many ways to analyze & develop associations and correspondences for things. At the moment, I am focused on the strokes used & any angles formed by the physical writing/drawing of a letter or number.

• It takes 3 strokes to write the capital H. Which order do you make them?

• The number 8 can be written in a continuous line (infinity) or as two circles (above & below)

• Look at how a digital display forms the 8 [squared away, but with 7 components]


https://www.mrgori.com/images/Numbers font.jpg




H is the 8th letter of the English alphabet. If your first language is not English, look at your alphabet’s order. What is the 8th there?


Shirley Blackwell Lawrence has two books that reference tarot and the Hebrew letters/Tree of Life framework:

• Behind Numerology (1989) Newcastle Publishing Co

• Numerology and the English Cabalah (1993) Newcastle Publishing Co


The “eight” pips of the Minor Arcana are in Hod, Mercury.


Numbers in general (math)

• The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers, Revised Edition

by David Wells, 1997

• The Book of Numbers

by John H. Conway & Richard K. Guy, 1996 - Copernicus (imprint of Springer-Verlag)

• The Magic of Numbers

by Eric Temple Bell, Dover Publications edition 1991

Since this is my last day with chet(h), I am browsing deck pics to see The Chariot. It is interesting to see the canopy of stars represented; four animals pulling it on the Thoth - but there are very few that feature water in the imagery.



Edited to add: I pulled out my copy of Tarot Constellations by Mary K. Greer and looked at her correspondences table on pp. 206-207

Golden Dawn/Case/BOTA/Waite/Thoth assign it as Chariot

Levi/Papus/Wirth/Zain, etc assign it as Justice or Balance


Andy's Playing Cards - The Tarot and other Early Cards page III Trump Card Arrangements


*ordinal numbering, not number itself (as in numerology)?


I am also thinking about how astrology signs are not the physical/actual constellations (even 30 degrees each vs very different sizes) and fixed stars or asteroids in a chart.
