Hi, I am studying the Tree of Life (for some years now), so the very basics are clear. To know it in all its dimensions and worlds requires more than a lifetime. I wonder if someone more advanced could help me with a question I am stuck with:

Do the inhabitants of other planets incorporate the same tree of life as we do?

In the structure of the glyph, the tenth Sephirah Malkuth refers to our physical body which is our earth. It also refers to the planet Earth which we inhabit. If I am not mistaken, to us, the sphere of Venus is a mental sphere … although several authors do state different things and in fact seem to mix up the spheres. To us earthlings, the sphere of Mars (Geburah) should be a conscious sphere of our Divine Mother or divine Soul.

If so, do the inhabitants of planet Venus have the planet Venus in their Malkuth? As they step on the planetary body of Venus. Or don’t they have no physicality? Are they just mental beings that live in the sphere of Netzach and above, but their Malkuth is empty?

Just the same, are the inhabitants of Mars conscious beings with no lower bodies, that is to say, are their lower spheres empty?

Or is there an error in reasoning and perhaps all this doesn’t exist outside of us? Are the stars only put onto the sky for us to be signs of what really exists inside?

Thank you for helping not only me but all students who wish to understand these things better.

The tree of life is universal to all humanities and remains the same. :)

Venus still relates to Tiphereth, even on the physical planet Venus, which is still a form of earth, the base materialization of matter in the physical plane.

Mars still relates to Geburah, the sphere of justice, even on the physical planet Mars, who have their Malkuth as the body of Samael, the Martian Logos.

We are fittingly on the bottom of the tree of life because our planet is fallen. The other planets of the solar system are not fallen, and do relate to higher levels of being, manifesting superior forces from the Sephiroth above.

However, for the sake of organization and clarity, Malkuth just means a terrestrial kingdom with four divisions of beings: minerals, plants, animals and humanoids, whether this is on Mars, Venus, Mercury, etc.

The planetary influences are the same throughout the cosmos, albeit perhaps in different languages and names, since the tree of life exists everywhere and is universal.

Planets are particular, but the influences flowing through them are spiritual and universal, everywhere. This is the meaning of the seven mighty rays, characteristics, or influences of the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

While these are planets we know of, these also consist of spiritual rays or influences that organize all of creation.

The stars are Chrisified planets with resurrected humanities. This is why the Qur'an states:
By the sky containing great stars (houses of the Solar Angels),
by the Promised Day,
by the Witness and the Witnessed:
perish the Men (hasnamussen) of the Ditch (the abyss who failed to conquer their lunar mind)!
The fire, abounding in fuel (in the tritocosmos or center of any planet, the infernal worlds),
above which they sat (in Malkuth before falling)
as they were themselves
witnesses to what they did to the faithful.
They were vindictive towards them only
because they had faith in Allah,
the All-mighty, the All-laudable,
to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens (Deuterocosmos, Macrocosmos, Ayoscosmos, and Protocosmos)
and the earth (Mesoscosmos and Microcosmos),
and Allah is witness to all things.
-Qur'an 85:1-8

I am sorry I do not understand this.

Other solar systems have more planets or less than ours. What a coincidence that our system of all fits well into the tree with every planet belonging to one Sephirah?

So for a Venusian inhabitant, the planetary body of Venus is their earth? And planet Earth which they see in the sky, for them is a representation of a fallen planet with a fallen humanity lying on the ground?

One thing is the spiritual influence of the planets, another thing the planetary bodies themselves. Spiritual principles and materiality go hand in hand!

Samael Aun Weor explained that our solar system has thirteen planets.
Audience: I read that there are thirteen planets in this solar system, including the Sun. Are there six more rays beyond the seven thrones?

Instructor: No, only seven, seven mighty rays. The other five planets, we will say, to make twelve, right? According to The Pistis Sophia there are twelve saviors; the Sun being the center, the thirteenth. The other planets have to accommodate themselves to the seven rays. They have to subordinate to the seven rays. The master says the highest hierarchy in this solar system is the seven. That is the highest, which is Raphael, Gabriel, Uriel, Michael, Samael, Zachariel and Orifiel; that is the highest. Below them, these other hierarchies that have to accommodate or to arrange themselves under the seven, which are related of course with the other Logoi of the other planets. Because after Saturn, you find Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, Vulcan, Persephone and Clarion. They have to align themselves to the seven, below the seven. But they are Logoi, and of course they are related with what master Jesus says, the twelve saviors related with the twelve tribes of Israel and the twelve apostles. Each one of them have their particular part in each one of us. In the book The Pistis Sophia you read about twelve, and about twenty-four. The twenty-four of course are related with the Zodiac, Chokmah. Twenty-four elders of the Zodiac, the twenty-fourth mystery which is very profound.
