Hi Gnostic Instructor,

Could you please explain the significance of 108 lives? Is that a symbolic number or Kabbalistic number or is it a concrete number of lives we are granted upon reaching the human kingdom?

Any insight into why it is 108 lives and not a different number would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much =)

“In each human reincarnation, every human being is born under a different star so that the ego is “rounded off,” little by little.” - Practical Astrology by Samael Aun Weor


In other words, kabbalistically, the soul of every human being is born in Malkuth, the earth, their physicality, under different zodiacal sign. There are 12 tribes or zodiacal signs. Above Malkuth according to the tree of life, there are 9 sephiroth or nine heavens. These nine heavens influence, "round off" the soul through any of the 12 constellations or tribes.

12 X 9 = 108 lives

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5

Hi Gnostic Instructor,

Thank you so much for the very precise answer. I appreciate it a lot. Are the 9 heavens also related to the 9 planets of our solar system? Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune.

Thank you kindly,

How do we figure out the "true" Zodiac sign of our Innermost?

So we can figure out which of the 7 rays we belong to through the forehead lines - however the Zodiac signs often have more than planetary correspondence. For example, I am under the Jupiterian Ray, and Jupiter rules both Sagittarius and Pisces. By intuition and Samael Aun Weor's description of the "natives" of Sagittarius and Pisces, I feel more closely related to Sagittarius(which also happens to be my sign in this lifetime), but it is a little bit ambiguous. I was wondering if there was a way to confirm without a doubt.

That's wild. I counted 4 primary lines but I also see a half line above each eyebrow and two more lines on the side of my head... Not sure how to interpret this. This would equate to 7 otherwise.

Thanks for replying. Although, I'm uncertain if it makes sense to multiply 9 heavens to these signs since these 9 layers have been broken up into larger and smaller increments in other traditions, i.e. the 31 planes of existence...
