Tarot Arcanum 15: Passion
The Fifteenth Arcanum is the pluralized “I,” which esoterically is called Satan.
The Fifteenth Arcanum represents passion, which is based in the Luciferic fire. It is necessary to know that the principal defect is sexual passion, lust.
In the Kabbalistic synthesis of the Fifteenth Arcanum, we have, 1 + 5 = 6, the 6 in itself is sex. This signifies that in sex is the major force that can liberate the human being, but also the major force that can enslave him.
The Fifteenth Arcanum signifies the work with the demon. It is the process of the dissolution of the “I.” Eden is sex; the internal beast, the psychological “I” obstructs our way towards Eden; it is at the door of sex, in order to invite us to the ejaculation of the seminal liquor, or in order to deviate us from that door by showing us schools, theories, sects, etc.

Samael Aun Weor
His name is Hebrew סמאל און ואור, and is pronounced “sam-ayel on vay-or.” You may not have heard of him, but Samael Aun Weor changed the world. In 1950, in his first two books, he was the first person to reveal the esoteric secret about sex that was hidden in all the world’s great religions, and for that, accused of “healing the ill,” he was put in prison. Nevertheless, he did not stop. Between 1950 and 1977 he wrote sixty books, and inspired millions of people across the entire span of Latin America. A true example of compassion and selflessness, he dedicated his life to helping others.
