777
« on: January 18, 2020, 01:25:48 AM »
I am starting this thread to post corrections for things in the 777 tables. The relationship of the double letters to the planets was discussed in the other thread.

Greek Gods
The 777 attributions for the Zodiac are based on the images on Tarot trumps. There actually was an ancient correspondence between the Olympians and the Zodiac:

"Pallas (Minerva) watches over the Woolbearer (Aries);
Cytherea (Venus) over Taurus;
Phoebus (Apollo) the shapely Gemini;
You, Cyllenius (Mercury), over Cancer;
and Jupiter, you yourself rule Leo with the Mother of the Gods;
Virgo who bears ears of grain belongs to Ceres;
and the forged scales to Vulcan;
quarrelsome Scorpio clings to Mars;
Diana cherishes the hunting man part horse (Sagittarius);
and Vesta the contracted stars of Capricorn;
opposite Jupiter is Aquarius, the star of Juno;
and Neptune acknowledges his own Pisces in the upper air."

Manilius, Astronomica. Patrice Guinard, Ph.D

This does not necessarily have anything to do with planetary rulership.

Nice catch. How would you go about using this in ritual?

Exactly as Enoch was instructed: recite the prayer three times per day for 50 days. It's excellent preparation.

Just caught this from the Satyr reply. I would, first of all, prefer these images for talismans or meditations, and their corresponding Orphic hymns which I get results with and now I don't have to force onto Egyptian or pseudo-Egyptian deities. I have also toyed with following Mathers and making my own tarot design, incorporating the corrected Sepher Yetzirah material.

Speaking of which, KHR = Wheel of Fortune, in Liber 418 ends with a vision of the Son of God and solar imagery appropriate to Kaph.
