“Then came to Jesus the Scribes (of Netzach, the inferior intellectual center) and the Pharisees (of Hod, the inferior emotional center), which were of Jerusalem, saying: Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

But he answered and said unto them, Why do you also transgress the commandment of Elohim-אלהים by your tradition? For Elohim אלהים commanded, saying, Honour thy father (El אל, HaYam הים) and thy mother (Elah אלה, Yam ים): and, He that curses (Mi-מי) the father (El אל, HaYam הים) or (Mah-מה) the mother (Elah אלה, Yam ים), let him die the (second) death.

But you say, Whosoever shall say to (Kether) his father (Metatron) or to (Malkuth) his mother (Matronithah), It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; And honour not (the male fire Eish-איש) his father or (the female fire Eshah-אשה) his mother (during the sexual act), he shall be free. Thus have you made the commandment of Elohim אלהים of none effect by your tradition.

You hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying: This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, and honour me with their lips; but their heart (in Tiphereth) is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of (fornicator) men.

And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man (the superior manas, Tiphereth); but that which comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man (the superior manas, Tiphereth).

Then came his disciples, and said unto him, do not you Know that the Pharisees (of Hod, inferior emotional center) were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father has not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable. And Jesus said, Are you also yet without (Binah) understanding? Do not you yet understand, that whatsoever enters in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart (in Hod, inferior emotional center); and they defile the man (the superior manas, Tiphereth). For out of the heart (in Hod, inferior emotiona center) proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man (the superior manas, Tiphereth): but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man (the superior manas, Tiphereth).” - Matthew 15: 1-20

As we already know, the precession of the equinoxes is caused by the gradual rotation of the axis of the Earth. This happens in a period of time in which the Earth’s axes passes through one complete cycle around the zodiacal belt. Our planet takes 72 years to pass through one degree to another in a circle of 360 degrees, that is, a cosmic year around the zodiacal belt. Thus, it takes 25,920 years to complete one full cycle of 360 degrees. As we already explained, one half of the journey takes 12,960 years and covers the four yugas.

Nevertheless, the Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor stated:

“Truthfully, the quantities of years assigned to a Cosmic Day are symbolic. The Cosmic Night arrives when the ingathering of the perfect souls is complete, which means, when the Cosmic Day is absolutely perfected.” - The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor

He also stated:

“The sidereal year exists as well as the terrestrial year. We understand the terrestrial year as being the movement of the earth around the sun during a period of 365 days. The terrestrial year has four seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The sidereal year also exists, lasting for approximately 25,968 terrestrial years.

Our solar system travels around the zodiacal belt and during its voyage many unusual things happen. The solar system returns to its original point of departure after completing its voyage around the zodiacal belt, thus concluding the sidereal year.

The sidereal year also has its four seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Spring is the Age of Gold, summer is the Age of Silver, autumn is the Age of Copper, and winter is the Age of Iron.

Each Root Race endures a complete voyage of the solar system around the zodiacal belt.

Our present Root Race, the Aryan Race that populates the five continents of the world, was born after the universal flood and will last throughout the era of Aquarius, which we are presently in. The voyage of our solar system began in Aquarius and will end in Aquarius.” - Samael Aun Weor

Why in this quotation does the Master Samael Aun Weor give the cipher, the kabbalistic code of 25,968 years? Why not 25,920? Well, it is obvious that this is a matter of simple kabbalistic calculations, in order to show that the time required for the equinoxes to make a complete circle of 360 degrees, is about 25,900 years. To understand this deeper, to discover why, we have to kabbalistically study the cipher 25,968 that the Master Samael Aun Weor gave us..

Tarot 16

Now, if we kabbalistically make an intelligent contemplation, consideration and look at the values of the numbers 25,900, we find that the digits of 25,900 when added together give us the number 16. This esoterically explains the fatal state in which this humanity is:

“If we Kabbalistically add the numbers of the Sixteenth Arcanum, 1 + 6 = 7, we find the seven degrees of the power of fire, the seven ladders of the mind. If the initiate falls, then the initiate is fulminated by the Sixteenth Arcanum and rolls downward on those stepladders of the mind. In occult science, it is stated that the initiate is left without INRI (Ignis Natura Renovatur Integra), meaning the initiate is a failure. This is then (16) the Fulminated Tower. Woe unto those who remain without INRI; they are falling downwards from the Tower. The victorious ones, those who achieve the Second Birth, enter into the Order of Melchizedeck, into the Order of Keb, the genie of the Earth....

There are initiates whose throats are stagnant; thus the battle is strong. The more exalted the initiate is, the more terrible and deep is the downfall. We must be careful of the nourishment that the mind receives, careful with newspapers, television, and movies. We must verbally and mentally transmute the seed with sepulchral offerings. In other words, we must not nourish ourselves with refuse, because this is worthless. Bad literature, bad movies, bad television, bad words, are rotten for the mind” - Samael Aun Weor

Interestingly, when we further contemplate our present condition, the fatal state in which our civilization is found, we are reminded that we are currently in the 4th Round or great epoch, known as the Terrestrial Round. Within that Terrestrial round, we are currently in the 5th Root Race, known as the Aryan root race. Within that Aryan root race, we are currently within the 7th Sub-race. When we add these numbers together, we find that 4 + 5 + 7 = 16, the Fulminated Tower. Our present civilization vibrates with this quality, the quality of the Arcanum 16, which is failure, descent towards the Second Death.

This is why the Zohar states:

"Seven lights (or astral fluids) ascend (from the Shekinah in Yesod to Daath) and descend (from Binah through Daath to Yesod) on seven sides (the seven lower Sephiroth). Seven supernal lights enter the sea (the bodily fluids of Malkuth), six (lower Sephiroth) radiating from one supreme (Binah in Daath). As the sea (the bodily fluids of Malkuth) receives (the seven lights), so it (Malkuth) disperses its (fiery) waters to all those seas (in the solar bodies, through) all of those rivers (through Pison and Gihon in the man, and Hiddekel and Euphrates in the woman, the four rivers of Eden).” - Zohar

Good and Evil

Here the Zohar is addressing the Caduceus of Mercury, known in Genesis as Daath דעת, the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. The seven lights relate to the seven Spirits, the seven chakras or churches, which are before the throne of Mercury, our inner God, Binah בינה, the Holy Spirit, in our spinal medulla in each of the seven bodies of Seir Anpin or true human being. These seven bodies are named: Chesed, Geburah, Tiphereth, Netzach, Hod, Yesod and Malkuth. Likewise, these seven lights are the Seven Logoi that descend from Daath דעת, the throat, which is the uterus where the Word is gestated.

The Elohim create with the power of their Word. When we practice sexual Alchemy, these seven lights systematically ascend from Yesod—our genitalia in Malkuth, Mitzrahimah מצרימה—through the medulla or caduceus of Mercury; that is, these seven lights descend and ascend through the spinal medulla of each of our seven bodies, or seven lower Sephiroth of our Tree of Life.

Thus, when we alchemically reach Daath דעת, which is above Chesed, our seventh light, then, the Second Logos (Shin ש, Ra, Christ, the Word), Chokmah, descends into Daath דעת, the virginal and immaculate womb of “Mah מה” by the action and grace of “Mi מי” the Holy Spirit, meaning by the action and grace of Binah בינה, the Third Logos. This is why our work of Sexual Alchemy begins with the Mercury of Philosophy, as follows:

“In the beginning was the Word (the Mercury of philosophy, the messenger of “El-אל, HaYam הים,” the Sea God in Daath-דעת), and the Word was with “Elah-אלה, Yam ים" (the Sea Goddess Ram-IO in Yesod-יסוד), and the Word was Eleh-Yam-אלה-ים (Eleh-אלה-these archetypes or the names-HaShemim-השמים, in the Yam-ים-Sea of Atziluth).

The same was in the beginning (of our sexual work of alchemy) with (our own particular) Elohim-אלהים.

All things (Debarim דברים, Logoi or Cosmocreators) were made by him (the Theomertmalogos-Binah-בינה); and without him (in any Mahamanvantara or womb of Mah-מה, that is, L'Aimah Elohim לאימה אלהים) was not any thing made that was made.

In him (Binah-בינה) was life (Chaiah חיה); and the life (Chaiah חיה) was the light of men.

And (when we sublimate the soul of the mercury) the light shineth in darkness; and (when we fornicate) the darkness comprehended it not.” - John 1: 1-5

The darkness comprehended it not, when we ejaculate the Ens Seminis, the brute mercury. When this happens, the Zohar states:

“A great fish (Nun in Aramaic, charged with klipothic קליפות fluids encapsulates itself in our sexual animal seed, thereafter,) coming from (our sexual bodily fluids in Malkuth, through Ida) the left (serpentine river, this great fish charged with klipothic קליפות fluids) swims through all these waterways (or body fluids) to poison and corrupt them. Its scales are as steel. From its mouth comes forth a lurid flame and its tongue (Daath-דעת-knowledge) is like a sharp sword. Its object is to force its way into the sanctuary of the great ocean (the cerebral-spinal fluid) to pollute and defile it (the brain or sea of marrow) and thus extinguish (the solar) light, and causing the waters to become frozen, and the great circulatory water system (of the genital and cerebral-spinal fluids) may cease to operate (this is how the self-willed Caiaphas קיפאס, starts covering his head with an evil Kliphah קליפה, Kippah, כיפא ,כיפה ,קיפא ,קיפה in order to hide his own whim or shameful fornication).

"The occult meaning of this mystery is expressed in the words of scripture:

'And the serpent (Va’Ha’Nahash והנחש or the animal genital fluid, Ida) was more subtle than all the beasts (Chaioth חית or animal life forces) of the field (HashadaH השדה: notice that the word Shed-שד, “demon,” is in between the two letters Hei ה of the word השדה) which Jehovah-Elohim-יהוה-אלהים had made,' (Genesis 3: 1).

This evil (Shed שד) serpent (or klipothic astral “Nephesh” animal fluid) wished to accomplish his aim by first corrupting the brooklets (the two letters Hei ה or genital fluids, testicles or ovaries of Chavah-חוה, Eve, our genitalia, that is, Am-Call-Chai-אם-כל-חי- Mother of all life) below (in Yesod) and making them impure and bitter, so that flowing back to the great ocean (the cerebral-spinal fluid) their fountain head (brain or sea of marrow), it might become polluted. This is why he first seduced (Chavah-חוה, Eve, our genital fluid, and thereafter) Adam (our cerebral spinal fluid) and brought death into the world and (through the blood דם “dam”) entered into the heart of Ha’Adam האדם from the left side.

"There is, however, another serpent that comes from the right.” As it is written:

“And when the woman (Ha’Eshah האשה, that is, the fiery fluid of the two letters Hei ה or brooklets below, in the male and female genital fluids) saw that (the dextral serpentine astral fluid or Pingala) the tree (grand sympathetic nervous system) was good for (astral light) food, and that it was pleasant to the (pineal and pituitary glands) eyes, and a (central nervous system) tree to be desired to make one wise, she (Chavah-חוה, Eve, the genitalia) took (through the sinistral serpentine fluid) of the fruit thereof, and did eat (as the beasts), and gave also unto (the dextral serpentine fluid) her husband (the brain) with her (the genitalia); and he (the brain) did eat.” - Genesis 3: 6

“These two serpents (astral fluids, Ida and Pingala) are they that are closely attached to Ha’Adam-האדם during the lifetime (of his Ha’Adamah האדמה or physicality, namely, his male cerebral spinal fluid Ob אב and his animal female natural genital fluid Od אד), as scripture saith, 'of all the beasts (Chaioth חית or animal life forces) of the field (HashadaH השדה, male and female genital fluids) which Jehovah-Elohim-יהוה-אלהים had in Assiah (עשה, Malkuth),' these two (astral fluids) are the most cunning, crafty and subtle in tempting and destroying Adam (the brain). Woe unto him who allows himself to be led on and seduced by the (sinistral) serpent (Ida), for death irretrievable is his doom, physically, morally and spiritually, both to himself and to those associated with him, as in the case of Adam (the brain) who wished to know and become expert in nature's secrets and occult science. In revealing them and exciting within him a fictitious joy and happiness, the (sinistral) serpent (Ida) acquired that influence and control over Adam (the brain) that contributed to and brought his ruin and downfall and thus caused him to suffer, as also his successors (the fornicators).” - Zohar

This why we have to take into account the remaining years (68) of 25968. For this, we have to study the Arcanum 68, Speculation.

Speculation"Speculation as an act of appraisal for value, symbolizes the human virtue of reasoning.

It is associated to the planet Mercury, the letters LL, and the number 5 (karma). It represents the principle of directed diligence.

“May thine eyes see without fear and delight thine hands with love.”

As an element of prediction it promises intelligent laboring; beneficial learning; abundance of material goods; generosity, liberality; favorable news on monetary matters; right calculation for undertakings."

Thus, if we add the Arcanum 16 to the Arcanum 68, we find that we have the number 84. Behold here that the number 84 relates to the orbit of the planet Uranus, which rules the constellation of Aquarius. Further, Aquarius relates to the Arcanum 14. This is significant as 68 is kabbalistically reduced to the arcanum14: 6 + 8 = 14.

Tarot 14“If we study the book of heaven, the marvellous zodiac, we can comprehend that the new Aquarian Age is governed by the zodiacal sign of Aquarius, the water-bearer.

The symbol of Aquarius is a woman (Urania) with two urns full of water trying to intelligently mix the waters of the two urns (study the Arcanum 14). This symbol brings us the remembrance of Sexual Alchemy. If in the Age of Pisces the human being was only the slave of the sexual instinct (this is symbolized by the two fish within the waters of life), in Aquarius the human being must learn the transmutation of the sexual forces. Aquarius is governed by Uranus; Uranas (ur = fire, anas = water).

Uranus is the planet which governs sexual functions. It becomes incongruent and absurd that some isolated individuals and certain schools of a pseudo-esoteric type reject the Maithuna. However, they have the pretention of being, they say, initiators of the new era.

Uranus is 100 percent sexual, and in the new era governed by this planet the human being must deeply know the mysteries of sex. Multitudes of schools of black magic exist, many of them with very venerable traditions that teach Sexual Magic with the spilling of semen. They have very beautiful theories that attract and captivate, and if the student falls in that seductive and delicious deceit, he becomes a black magician.” - Samael Aun Weor

The Arcanum 14 is reduced to 5, which is related to Geburah-גברה , which is the house of the Logos Samael, which rules the Aryan Root Race. Our Aryan Root Race is the Fifth Root Race of our present Terrestrial Round:

“We live in the age of Samael, the fifth of the seven. The return towards the Great Light has been initiated. Life has started to flow from the outer towards the inner. We are faced with the dilemma of, “To be or not to be.” We need to define ourselves as angels or demons, eagles or reptiles. We have to confront our own destiny.” - Samael Aun Weor

Unfortunately, present humanity, instead of returning in the ascending arch towards Hod and Netzach, the Great Astral Light in the fifth dimension, is returning, devolving through the descending arch of the wheel of Samsara towards the world of Klipoth, the infernal worlds as Scribes or Sadducees and Pharisees in the fifth inferior dimension.

So, as we stated, the Arcanum 16 plus Arcanum 68, give us the number 84, and 84 relates to the orbit of the planet Uranus, which rules the constellation of Aquarius.

Obviously, this orbit of the planet Uranus is that which is performed around the Sun, but, when it is performing this voyage, it so happens that this planet passes through all of the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. There, we find the kabbalistic meaning of 25,968, which, as we said, is 84.

This is not a coincidence, because we are talking about the constellation of Aquarius. It is in this constellation that our Root Race began, and in which it will end, as the Master Samael Aun Weor stated in the former quotation.

Therefore, behold here the relationship of this number with 84, which coincides with the rotation of the planet Uranus, that rules and is in the house of Aquarius. This is very intriguing.

In order to add more to this statement, we find that 8 + 4 = 12. Behold the number 12, about which we are making a synthesis of in this lecture. Everything is kabbalistic; Master Samael gave the sum 25,968 because of this. This relates to Aquarius, it relates to the planet Uranus, and it relates to the 12 constellations, which the planet Uranus takes 84 years in order to complete one cycle of.

This is something very interesting, because the planet Uranus rules the sexual endocrine glands. We spoke in the previous lecture about the creation of the true human being, indeed that which is the title of this lecture series: Anthropogenesis. This creation is precisely the objective of any sidereal year.

We already talked about the Yugas. The Master Samael stated that the four seasons are related with the four Yugas. We explained that the four Yugas—Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwapara Yuga, and Kali Yuga—correspond to the four seasons of the Terrestrial year. We explained that these four seasons occur in both the northern hemispheres and the southern hemisphere, but in opposite fashion. In this same way, we have to understand that the planet Uranus also deeply relates to two polarities, or in other words, to its two poles. This is because the northern pole of Uranus relates to the positive, masculine force, whereas the feminine force relates to the southern, or negative pole.

Master Samael stated that the dominant influence of each pole of Uranus switch every 42 years; 42 years for the masculine, and 42 for the feminine:

“The path is sexual transmutation. This is the science of Uranus. This is the planet that controls the gonads or sexual glands. This is the planet that governs the constellation of Aquarius.

Uranus has a sexual cycle of eighty-four years. Uranus is the only planet which directs its two poles toward the sun. The two poles of Uranus correspond to the masculine and feminine aspects. These two phases alternate in periods of forty-two years each. The alternating stimuli of the two poles of Uranus govern all the sexual history of human evolution.” - Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony

The masculine pole relates to the positive forces of the water, the Aqua-Arius, which relates, as we explained in other lectures, to Mi-מי (the north, positive, masculine) and Mah-מה (southern, negative, feminine).

We have to visualize these two polarities, Mi-מי and Mah-מה, related to the Aqua of Aquarius, because they relate to the sexual endocrine glands. Obviously, the feminine to the south pole of Uranus, and the masculine to the north. This is related with the sexual influence that we receive in our voyage through the zodiacal belt.

That is why we have placed the zodiacal belt around the Tree of Life, in order to emphasize these 12 tribes of Israel, or, 12 zodiacal houses around the belt in which our solar system travels.

Behold, the Sun receives the influences of the 12 constellations, in every single voyage. But, the planets of the solar system also receive their own, particular, individual influence. In this case, we are addressing our Aryan root race, which began in Aquarius, and which will end in Aquarius.

Uranus has its influence too. It relates to the same 12 constellations, in an 84 year cycle. Likewise, we receive that influence of this Aqua-Arius; in other words, the superior waters of space, that descend into our planet Earth, through the constellation of Aquarius, through the planet Uranus.

Let us read a quotation from the Master Samael Aun Weor, from his lecture, Harvest of the Sun. He stated:

“Fortunately, the Sun has deposited in the sexual glands the seed needed in order to create the authentic human. This seed could develop if we were to cooperate with the Sun. Then, we no longer would be simple speaking machines as we are currently, since we would transform ourselves into real humans, into kings and queens of creation.”

Behold here, the Master Samael is making an emphasis in the sexual seed. Obviously, in the transference of the forces of the sexual seed in our organism, these forces are placed in us thanks to the activity of the planet Uranus. One full cycle of that activity takes 84 years to complete, which is the span of time it takes Uranus to orbit around the zodiacal belt, in other words, one cycle around the Sun.

That is why Master Samael Aun Weor states that as long as we are under or within these 84 years of age, physically speaking, we are capable of receiving the forces of Uranus. That is the influence that we need.

The question is, how do these 12 forces of the zodiac arrive in our planet Earth, and, in which why are we willing to receive those forces, according to Alchemy?

In order to continue in this discussion, we have to state that in other lectures we have said that the 12 constellations of the zodiac, are related to the 12 tribes of Israel, and that each tribe relates to a particular zodiacal house. Benjamin relates to the house of Aries; Issachar to the house of Taurus; Levi to the house of Gemini; Zabulun to Cancer; Judah to Leo; Asher to Virgo; Dan or Manassas to Libra; Gad to Scorpio; Joseph to Sagittarius; Simeon to Capricorn; Nephtalim to Aquarius; and Reuben to Pisces.

Now, in his book, Treatise of Sexual Alchemy, Master Samael Aun Weor stated that we on the planet Earth have twelve fundamental salts, that relate to the twelve zodiacal signs, he said:

“There are twelve fundamental salts, which are governed by the twelve zodiacal signs.”  - Treatise of Sexual Alchemy by Samael Aun Weor  

These 12 salts that relate to the 12 zodiac signs are the following:


Aries, Benjamin to Phosphoric Potassium

Taurus, Issachar to Sodium Sulphate

Gemini, Levi to Potassium Chloride

Cancer, Zabulun to Calcium Fluoride

Leo, Judah to Phosphoric Magnesium

Virgo, Asher to Phosphoric Calcium

Libra, Dan to Sodium Carbonate

Scorpio, Gad to Sulfuric Calcium

Sagittarius, Joseph to Silica

Capricorn, Simeon to Phosporic Nitron

Aquarius, Nephatalim to Sodium Chloride

Pisces, Reuben to Iron Phosphate”

This is how we have to align the 12 salts that the Master Samael Aun Weor explains about in his book, Treatise of Sexual Alchemy, with the 12 constellations by name (Shemith שמית) Semites, the 12 tribes of Israel.

There is something important to mention here, which is about the constellation of the Centaurus, Sagittarius, which is attributed to Joseph. The salt of this sign is silica. Silica is a salt that is contained, mainly, in the sands of the oceans. This salt relates to Joseph. Joseph, as the book of Genesis states, is the first one who descends into Mitzrahimah-מצרימה. This word, Mitzrahimah-מצרימה is found in the book of Shemoth; the book of names (Shemoth-שמות) is known by those that do not know Kabbalah, as Exodus.

That is why I stated that this lecture is related to the Exodus. The very beginning of the book of Exodus states:

“And these are the names  (Shemoth-שמות) of the children of Israel (Beni-Israel בני ישראל), which (are the 12 salts that) came into (the waters of Mitzrahimah-מצרימה) Egypt; every Eish-איש (male fire) and his (zodiac) household came with Jacob (Tiphereth, the human soul).”

Then, by name (Shemith שמית) Semites, the tribes:

"2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,

3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,

4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.”

These are the 11 tribes or salts that descended into Mitzrahimah-מצרימה, which is translated as Egypt, the land of Kheb. At that time, Moses was a priest of Kheb, or as it is known now, Egypt. But, in the previous lecture we explain that Mitzrahimah-מצרימה relates to Mi-מי and Mah-מה, the two waters: the cerebral spinal fluid and the genital fluids, Mi-מי and Mah-מה respectively. The reason that only 11 salts are named here, is because Joseph’s salt was in Mitzrahim-מצרים already.

Thus, if we want to develop Moses inside us, we have to utilize this Mi-מי and Mah-מה. The two lower waters of Mitzrahimah-מצרימה are the two creative (Yetzar יצר) fluids of the Holy Spirit in our physicality.

The name Joseph יוסף is derived from IO-Caph יוכף or IO-Ceph. IO-Kippah יוכיפא is Joseph, and represents the kippa כיפא, the sphere where the Holy Spirit rests, which is called righteousness or chastity in the stone of IO, or better said Ram-IO. Joseph יוסף, Yesod יסוד or Iosod יוסד... This is why Joseph who was termed a Tzaddik-צדיק, a “just one,” because of his sexual purity and observance of the covenant, which is the Sod סוד, secret of chastity of Yesod יסוד, given by Shaddai El Chai שדי אל חי, which is the Holy Ghost of the Living God. Interestingly, the name Io-seph, or Io-soph, reminds us of the Greek Sophia, meaning wisdom. In this way, we could say that IO-Soph represents the wisdom of IO, in other words, the wisdom of the sexual force, which is why Joseph is a Tzaddik-צדיק.

Shaddai El Chai שדי אל חי is the name of God in Yesod, the sexual organs. This is why Joseph יוסף, Yesod יסוד or Iosoph יוסף, IO-Kippah-יוכיפא became Iosod-יוסד, that is, a established ruler of IO in Yesod יסוד, in other words, an alchemist in Malkuth, Mitzrahimah-מצרימה. About IO, Master Samael Aun Weor states:

“IO: Isolda, the luni-solar androgyne. Osiris-Isis has sparkled with terrible divinity since the profound creation of all ages. The I of IO, with its deep significance, is certainly the phallus (the lingam), the Hebrew י Iod. O is the eternal feminine, the uterus (the yoni), the famous Hebrew ה Hei.

IO: The integral transmutation of the libido is performed when we intone this syllable or magical word during the sexual trance.

Thus, this is how the igneous serpent of our magical powers awakens in order to initiate its exodus along the medulla canal.

Obviously, the maternal aspect of the sacred flame, which in a serpentine form ascends through the dorsal spine, is evident.

The flame with the form of a snake, the divine sexual flame, is the very sacred Mother Kundalini.” - Three Mountains by Samael Aun Weor

So, Joseph יוסף or Iosoph יוסף, established Iosod יוסד himself from the pineal gland or Kippah כיפא as the ruler of IO-יו, the stone of Yesod יסוד. In the pineal gland, the seat of the human soul or willpower, we have an atom of the Holy Spirit, symbolized in the Kippah כיפא of IO-Kippah יוכיפא, Joseph יוסף.

“When Joseph resolves to follow the path of chastity, he is tempted by a woman and goes to the jail of bitterness, slandered and defamed, but faithful to his pledge of chastity.” - Samael Aun Weor

Likewise, the Kippah כיפא represents Peter, Patar, the ruler of IO-יו, the stone of Yesod יסוד, church of Ephesus (better said, the church of Hephaestus and Venus), which is the church of Romae (an anagram for Amore) in Yesod, Mitzrahimah-מצרימה. Listen, this is why when Simon-שימעון (meaning ‘listen’) was brought to Jesus, he said:

“Thou art Simon-שימעון the son of Jonah-יונה (meaning dove, symbol of the Holy Spirit): thou shalt be called Cephas (כיפא Kippah, Κεφας, κεφα - Chaldean כֵּיפָא, a rock -, Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.” - John 1: 42

“And (listen-שמע-Shema what) I say also unto thee, (that as an alchemist), That thou art (also) Peter (Cephas, כיפא Kippah, a rock), and upon this rock (the stone of IO-Soph יו-סף) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” - Matthew 16: 18, 19

This is why, alchemically, Joseph יוסף or Iosoph יוסף, bears the Kippah כיפא that cover the atom of the Holy Spirit in the pineal gland, since he is the righteous father of Jesus-Christ, our Inner Chrestos, the Son of Man, the Son God, the Son of our kisses; and this is why Joseph יוסף is the righteous spouse of the stone of IO, or better said, Ram-IO, Maria, Mary, since IO-Saph-יו-סף also means the CUP of IO, the Holy Grail, which is Io-sephira יו-ספירה, the Sephirah Yesod יסוד, the Sephirah-ספירה of IO-יו.

“The heart is the sanctuary of Sephirah (Io-sephira יו-ספירה), the Mother of the Sephiroth, the Divine Cosmic Mother.“ - Alchemy and Kabbalah in the Tarot by Samael Aun Weor

“The entire drama of Calvary has to be lived within the Astral plane by means of the third degree of the power of fire.” - The Seven Words by Samael Aun Weor

Master Samael Aun Weor explains all of this in his book, The Seven Words, how we have to create the Astral body, the vehicle of Hod, which is represented by Benjamin בנימין, and that Joseph יוסף represents, as we already explained, the lower aspect of this Astral body in Yesod. Listen, Benjamin-בנימין is Beni בני literally “my son” and Min מין literally “sex.” Thus, alchemically speaking, Benjamin-בנימין means, the son of the sublimations from our sexual secretions.

This descent of Joseph יוסף into Yosod-יוסד of Mitzrahimah-מצרימה explains how the alchemists begin their development related with the Sephirah Hod, which is underneath the Sephirah Geburah-גברה in the left side of the Tree of Life. The Astral body is the first body that the alchemist creates. For that, we need the influence of the twelve salts of the zodiac. As the Master Samael Aun Weor states, sulfur is fire, it is the fire that has to free itself from its prison, in order to fertilize the mercury, and mix with the salt. Salt serves as the base for sulfur and mercury, the ur = fire and anas = water of Uranas, Uranus. These two combine and amalgamate within the salt of Joseph in Yesod.


The Twelve Aeons

“Within the legend of Joseph, son of Jacob, is enclosed the initiatic process of our Chrestos..."

Joseph represents (Hod) the Astral Body of the Human Being and Benjamin- בנימין represents the Superior Astral, the Divine Chrestos, which is contained within the Astral Body of the human being (as the silver cup is contained within the sack of Benjamin). Properly stated, the sack is the Astral Body, and the Divine Astral or Benjamin- בנימיןis our Chrestos, who is Benjamin himself, the Superior Astral. And it is by means of this Divine or Superior Astral that we return to our Father. Joseph saw his father Jacob again by means of Benjamin-בנימין.” - The Seven Words by Samael Aun Weor

We have to understand that Joseph-יוסף as salt exists in the sacred sperm. When we transmute and sublimate the sperm, the salt of Joseph-יוסף is also transmuted and sublimated. That is why the great Kabir Jesus said:

“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.” - Matthew 5: 13

Master Jesus states, “but if the salt have lost his savour” that is, if the salt degenerates, it is “thenceforth good for nothing.” It will be useless, not even good for the dunghill, but “to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men.” That is, it will be cast into the Abyss, into the darkness of the infernal worlds. So, Master Jesus is talking about the salt, and Master Samael Aun Weor stated:

“The Innermost of every human being is a child of a sidereal genie (Logos) and there are as many Fathers (Innermosts) in heaven as there are human beings on earth.

In each human reincarnation, every human being is born under a different star so that their essence is “rounded off,” little by little. But there is a star that rules our Innermost, and that Star never changes: this is our Father Star. This Star is our Father who is in the heavens.” - Samael Aun Weor, the Zodiacal Course

We have to comprehend this. The Master Samael says that, in each incarnation, in each return, we are born under different constellations, because our consciousness has to be rounded off. This “rounding off” reminds us of the zodiacal belt, and the 12 salts that we have to receive, and that the planet Uranus has to place in our sexual glands, in order for us to elaborate with these twelve 12 what we need to elaborate, or to build. Behold here all of the secret of Alchemy.

The forces have to descend into Mitzrahimah-מצרימה, the physical plane. Obviously, the planet Earth is also Mitzrahimah-מצרימה, Malkuth, but we are, physically speaking, part of that planet. We inherit, through the influences of the Sun, these twelve salts, with which we can elaborate the internal solar bodies.

This is something very important to comprehend, because we see here how each person on this planet is born under a different zodiacal sign in each life, in order to be rounded off of the influences of the zodiacal signs, through the planet Uranus. Aquarius relates to these superior Aquas.

Remember that Aqua is related to mercury, in Alchemy; it is also related to mercury because in the superior worlds, Aquarius relates to the waters that we have in the cerebral spinal fluids, the north pole. However, we also have the south pole, which is also related with the waters; the waters, or mercury, that we have to build. This is how we alchemically explain that we need the influence of the twelve constellations. Or, as the book of Revelation says, the 24 elders that rule the 12 constellations; two for each constellation, male-female.



Behold here something very interesting: the number 24 about which we talk about in previous lectures. This number relates to the Weaver. The Weaver is Urania, the Divine Mother Kundalini. So, the 24 elders of the book of Revelation are related to the forces that the Divine Mother utilizes from the 12 constellations, in order to weave what she has to weave within us.

We have to awaken her. If we further analyze the number 12, we find that the 12th Aeon is the Ain Soph, and from the Ain Soph emerges the 12 salts. Remember that Chokmah, the Christ, is related to the Zodiac. When we name Chokmah, we say that it relates to the Zodiac, but also to the planet Uranus, but also to the Ain Soph Aur, which is the Cosmic Christ.

In other words, the Cosmic Christ, which is fire and light, is the Ain Soph Aur. This name Ain Soph Aur reminds us of the rune Ar. The Rune Ar symbolizes fire, light, the Sun, in other words, it is the Cosmic Christ; it is the Ra of the Egyptians. Indeed, we could write this word as Ain Soph A-R, which is the rune Ar, the fire and light, found within the womb, the Rune Ur, of Urania, the Divine Mother Space, the Ain Soph; that womb or Rune Ur is none other than the Vav, the U, of A-U-R, the U of Urania, Uranus; Uranas (ur = fire, anas = water). That Vav is U, the womb, the spinal medulla, the womb of the Goddess RAM-IO. The Ain Soph Aur is the 3rd aspect of the Absolute, or the 11th Aeon, which relates to the Zodiac, to the twelve constellations, and to the planet Uranus, because Kether relates to Neptune, and to the Infinite.

That is why, in Kabbalah, we say that the work of the cosmic ray of creation begins from the Ain Soph Aur. From that Spiritual Sun, emanates the Theomertmalogos. We stated that the Theomertmalogos is Binah-בינה. Behold here, in the 7th dimension, how Binah-בינה emerges from Chokmah, which in this case is Uranus, the Zodiacal belt, in order to influence our sexual glands, through Binah-בינה, the Holy Spirit.

Of course, Binah-בינה is the head of the left column of the Tree of Life. We find that Binah-בינה relates to Daath-דעת. The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, the right and the left columns of the Tree of Life is Daath-דעת-knowledge.

We have here, from the 12th Aeon, the Ain Soph, with the help of the 11th Aeon (the Ain Soph Aur) the forces of Leo, because Leo is Judah, the house of the Sun, the Ain Soph Aur, the Spiritual Sun. Leo manifests through Tiphereth, the human soul that has to be rounded off with the twelve constellations, in order to crystallize the twelve salts of the Zodiac, of the Ain Soph Aur and Chokmah.

Behold here the relationship of these superior forces of Aquarius with the lower forces, which are our sexual glands, ruled by Aquarius, ruled by Uranus, in order for us to receive the influence of the superior worlds, the superior waters of heaven, the Akash, into our particular Akash, which is in this case, our sexual fluids.

The book of Genesis, which we always address, explains this in a more creative manner. We have to understand this in a very simple way, beginning at the bottom, our human nature. When I say our “human nature” I am addressing the human body. The humanoid or intellectual animal has a human form, because in it is contained the twelve salts of the Zodiac, that, according to the book of Exodus, the book of Shemoth, descend into Mitzrahimah-מצרימה, which are the fluids of the body; this, in order for us to start the exodus. That exodus is the building of the internal human being, that which has to raise to the higher Aeons.

Gabriel and Michael

Gabriel and Michael within the Salt of the earth

Each one of the 12 Aeons has already deposited its salt within our essence. Remember that the salt is the vehicle of the sulfur and the mercury. That is why Master Samael Aun Weor said in the Pistis Sophia, regarding what Master Jesus explained, relating with the two angels that are in charge of the ray of light that, according to Pistis Sophia, places the forces of the Aeons in our organism, and internal bodies, if we develop those Solar bodies.

These two angels, as the Pistis Sophia explained, are Gabriel-גבריאל and Michael-מיכאל. Behold: Michael-מיכאל is the Archangel of the Sun. The Sun is related with Tiphereth. Tiphereth is the kingdom of Chokmah, which is ruled by Uranus, and the Zodiac, which receives the influence of the Ain Soph Aur, the Spiritual Sun.

Obviously, Michael-מיכאל relates to the Spiritual Sun, the Ain Soph Aur; relates to Chokmah, in relation with the Zodiac, the twelve tribes of Israel; and with the planet Uranus, which rules Chokmah. Behold here the relationship of these cosmic forces with the human soul. That is why Jacob-Israel relates to Tiphereth, and Jacob-Israel is the father of the twelve tribes or twelve salts, because it is the human soul that is rounded off by the twelve forces. Remember that the salt serves as the base for the sulfur, which is Michael, the sulfur which is the fire, INRI, the fire of the fire.

There is something very important which we have to also name in regards to this: Gabriel-גבריאל . We know that Gabriel-גבריאל represents the Moon, because in this alchemical work, Michael-מיכאל (the sulfur) and Gabriel-גבריאל (the mercury) have to descend into the physical body, in order to start the work of Alchemy. Master Jesus said:

“Ye are the salt of the earth.” - Matthew 5: 13

We are the salt of the earth. We have the 12 salts of the Zodiac, and Michael-מיכאל (the sulfur) descends and establishes itself in our sexual glands. Gabriel-גבריאל works in the left column of the Tree of Life, whereas Michael-מיכאל is related with the right column of the Tree of Life. In the center is the Divine Mother, who is the outcome of the salt of Malkuth, mingled with the mercury (Gabriel-גבריאל ) and the sulfur (Michael-מיכאל).

Let us explain, in our particular, alchemical laboratory, the name Michael-מיכאל further. Michael-מיכאל (the sulfur) emerges from Daath-דעת. Remember that we explain that the Theomertmalogos is the Sephirah Binah-בינה, which is divided into positive and negative, or masculine and feminine, in Daath-דעת. That is why the Sephirah Daath-דעת is underneath the first triangle, because Daath-דעת is the outcome of the division of Binah-בינה into two sexual polarities. It is obvious that within Binah-בינה is Chokmah and Kether, as the brain, heart and sex are contained in one body. We are that body, with brain, heart and sex.

Above is Kether-Chokmah-Binah, but the division of the two polarities expresses itself in the sexual glands. Therefore, Daath-דעת is Binah-בינה, the division in the superior waters of Aquarius. The two polarities are represented by Michael-מיכאל and Gabriel-גבריאל . That is why the name Michael-מיכאל contains Mi-מי, which represents the cerebral spinal fluid. That is why the letter Kaph-כ relates to the Kippah-כיפה, to the head. Mi-Cha-El. El-אל is Chesed in Atziluth. So, when we say the name Michael, we are saying that the “Mi-מי of Michael-מיכאל is like El-אל, Chesed” or in other words, Binah works through Chesed with the fire of the Holy Spirit. Mi-Cha-El, alchemically speaking, is that fire.

We also have Gabriel-גבריאל as Geburah-El-גברה-אל, in the invocation of Solomon, that says:

“Oh Gedulah-El, Oh Geburah-El, O Tiphereth”

Geburah-El-גברה-אל relates to the sephirah Geburah-גברה , Severity, has the numerical value of 5, which is same value of the final Hei of Iod-Hei-Vav-Hei-יהוה, which is Matronithah, Malkuth, Malkah, the Queen, one of the five aspects of the Bride of Metatron, the King, the Crown, Kether.

When we write Geburah-El-גבורה-אל in Hebrew, this name is equal to Gabriel-גבריאל or גברהיאל. In other words, equal to the fire or Ur of Uranas or Uranus, which is contained in the anas = water of Aquarius, that relates with Geburah-גברה . That is why, as we explained in other lectures, that Geburah-גברה descends in the left column, through Hod into Malkuth. Hod and Malkuth and Yesod are ruled by the Moon. Master Samael Aun Weor explains this very clearly, that Yesod is ruled by the Moon, Hod is ruled by the Moon, and we state that kabbalistically, Malkuth is also ruled by the Moon.

So, Malkuth, Yesod and Hod relate to Gabriel-גבריאל . But, that force of Gabriel-גבריאל , which is the hero of Geburah-גברה , the strength of God, Geburah-El-גברה-אל, is the same Sa-Ma-El, who is the El-אל-God of Geburah-גברה in the world of Briah. Samael-סמאל and Gabriel-גבריאל share the same Gebur-גבר, male force of Geburah-גברה. It is that fire that descends into our sexual glands. It is that fire that comes from Uranus in Chokmah, that comes through the Zodiac, from Chokmah; that comes from the 12th Aeon, the Ain Soph, through the Ain Soph Aur, the Spiritual Sun, and that descends into the creative fluids of our genitalia. The Genie that performs that labor is Samael-סמאל, through Gabriel-גבריאל , in order to deposit it into the mercury, the genital fluid.

We have here the two polarities: Gabriel-גבריאל , the Moon and Michael, the Sun. But, we also learn that Geburah-גברה is ruled by the Sun in the waters of Gabriel-גבריאל . This is how we see the two polarities of the sulfur and the mercury, in the salt of Malkuth. Alchemically, we state that we need salt, mercury and sulfur, in order to create that element that we need to elaborate, in order for the Solar bodies to emerge in us.

Behold here the two Esh-אש. On the left side, we have Eshah-אשה, and on the right we have Eish-איש. These are the feminine and masculine poles, respectively; the mercury and the sulfur, in the salt. All of this relates with the work in the laboratory. The Master Samael Aun Weor explains:

Elohim Gibor

Elohim Gibor

“The fifth Helper (Samael-Elohim-Gibor, Geburah, Geburah-El, Gabriel), acting with great power, takes a certain quantity of the substance of love in order to cast it into the mixture, into the world (of Malkuth) .” - The Pistis Sophia Unveiled by Samael Aun Weor

The mixture is Malkuth, Mitzrahimah-מצרימה, the world which represents our physicality. The substance, according to the Pistis Sophia, is bestowed within the essence, the consciousness, which is disgracefully found bottled up within the psychic aggregates, which are dry mercury. In other words, when the individual in the physical plane utilizes the salt, the mercury and the sulfur in the wrong way, when the individual fornicates, those three substances crystallize in us as dry mercury. Dry mercury is those defects, vices and errors which we carry within, which are lunar crystallizations; they are the outcome of the wrong uses of the forces of Gabriel-גבריאל within us. When we fornicate, instead of creating the solar child of Alchemy, we create lust, we create anger, pride, laziness, gluttony, etc. This is dry mercury, these are the demons that we create when we utilize the fire of Michael-מיכאל in the wrong way, the mercury of Gabriel-גבריאל in the wrong way, and the 12 salts of Alchemy which are placed in our sexual fluids in the wrong way.

We also have arsenic sulfur, which is the fire, or animal lust, related with the kundabuffer organ, which is 100% animal. That fire has to be annihilated. That dry mercury has to be annihilated from our animal nature, in order for us to create the human being.

Observe here the influence of Gabriel-גבריאל, the Mercury, Michael-מיכאל, the sulfur, and the twelve salts of the Zodiac, within the cerebral-spinal and genital fluids in our physicality. This is why the Pistis Sophia states:

“When I went out into the world, I came among the archons of the Sphere in the form of Gabriel-גבריאל , the Angel of the Aeons; and the archons of the aeons did not know me, but they thought that I was Gabriel-גבריאל .”

Obviously, as we are explaining here, Gabriel-גבריאל is Geburah-El-גברה-אל, which is Geburah-גברה , the cosmic consciousness. The Lord, through Gabriel-גבריאל , Geburah-El-גברה-אל, which is called the Angel of the Aeons… which Aeons? Well, we have been talking about the 12 Aeons, the 12 salts of the Zodiac. Gabriel-גבריאל is called the Angel of the Aeons, because he is the one that places—in the Moon, in Yesod, in Hod, and in Malkuth—the Aeons, the salts, in our organism. When we study the Tree of Life, we see that the right column ends in Yesod, which is Michael-מיכאל, the solar force. But, through the Moon (Gabriel-גבריאל ), the Aeons descend into the brute mercury, the fluids of our genitalia. That is why it is always so obvious that Samael-סמאל is related with Prometheus-Προμηθέας, the Elohim-Gibor-אלהים-גיבור-God's Hero, that steals the IO-יו, the solar fires from Geburah-גבורה or Gibor-Rah-גיבור-רה, and places it, through the Moon, through Gabriel-גבריאל , into the IO-יו of Yesod יסוד in Mitzrahimah-מצרימה, the fluids of our physicality. So, we have to thank Samael-סמאל, who is Geburah-El-גברה-אל, Gabriel-גבריאל , who brings the fire, the feminine fire into Chavah-חוה, our Eve, our genitalia, in our physicality.

Michael-מיכאל brings that fire into Mi-מי, which is the Kaph-כ or Kippah-כיפה of El-אל, God: Mi-Cha-El. It is that fire that is light, God, in us, the salt, and in Gabriel-גבריאל, the mercury. And, thanks to the salt that we have in our consciousness, in our essence, the mercury and the sulfur are established in our sexual genes.

From there, we start working with the Kundalini, because the Divine Mother, Matronithah, contains all the 12 Salts within the Mercury that needs to be sublimated, in order to be fecundated by the Sulfur and thus to create, through her, all of the internal bodies, that is, to create through her all of the Solar bodies. And, to destroy, with her, the dry mercury and the poisoned sulfur, which is our passional fire in this world.

This is why the Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor stated:


“What is important, therefore, by means of this alchemical work, is to become illuminated by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enlightens us when we work in the Great Work. Such enlightenment becomes gradual, that is to say, it begins in a very incipient manner, yet it develops more and more in oneself, until the moment when one becomes to possess a complete, total enlightenment.

Notwithstanding, one could not receive the Holy Spirit, if indeed, one does not work in the transmutation of the Sacred Sperm, because that one does not liberate the Mercury. Keep in mind that the Holy Spirit is the Mercury, in other words, the metallic soul of the sperm. Thus, if one does not manipulate it, transform and work with it, fertilizing it with Sulfur, from where then one will get the enlightenment.

Alchemistically we saw that the Holy Spirit must be removed from among the Brute Mineral, because within there it is hidden, within the Brute Azoth; and you already know that such Brute Mineral, is the Sacred Sperm. Therefore by means of the transmutations of the Sperm, the Metallic Soul of the Sperm appears, the Metallic Soul of the Azoth, which is nothing other than the Mercury.

Thus, by means of the works with the Mercury one advances towards Enlightenment. Then one acquires the Holy Spirit, by means of whom one can understand the Sacred Scriptures of all the Cults and Religions of the World.

Thus, it is well worth owning that kind of Spirit. In the long run, when the Holy Spirit totally crystallizes within oneself, the Holy Spirit converts us into the Wise Gentleman, into the Knight of the Holy Grail, into a Knight of the Round Table, into the distinguished personage who can perform any work in favor of the Great Cause.

But, see how interesting is for oneself to reach the Third Logos ... ... which has not completely understood.

Thus, in order to completely understand the Holy Spirit there is the need to work with him in the Laboratorium Oratorium; there is the need to manipulate it and fertilize it with Sulfur, in order to use it in order to create Bodies.

If one learns to manipulate it in his laboratory as a fertilizable and usable substance, it is then when the distinguished, sapient True Gentleman appears inside oneself, capable enough to act here, in this world, with sapience and wisdom.

The Third Logos transformed into a Knight is something extraordinary, indeed. This is how we see it within San Germán, this is how we see it within Cagliostro, this is how we see it within Nicolás Flamel; He is certainly the Third Logos, the Holy Spirit, the Mercury, the Metallic Soul of the Sperm, well, within any human he is the Guide, the Instructor.

If one day he took us from the bosom of the Father when we ate the forbidden fruit of Eden, when we fell into the animal generation, likewise, he can returns us to the bossom of the father by means of the Great Work. This is why he becomes the Instructor, the Master, the one who instructs us, the one who guides us. In this manner is how we have to understand it.

Unfortunately, the different religious tendencies have not been able to see the complete Holy Spirit, but the Alchemist does know how to see it complete.

To see the Holy Spirit transformed into a Knight as illustrious as the Count of Saint Germain, living in all the courts of Europe, alongside Louis XV, this is something extraordinary. He is a great diplomat, he is tremendous in politics; the Man who plays with the courts; the Holy Spirit transformed into the most illustrious Gentleman, he is admirable; that is only possible by manipulating Alchemy.

About the Holy Spirit has been spoken very abstractly, but about him, in his crude realism, within his laboratory realism, has not been concretely talked about.

Thus, it is well worth transforming oneself, it is well worth it ... But I repeat, one could not transform oneself, if one does not begin by recognizing one's own inner misery. If one wants to transform oneself while one is already feeling that one is like a Demigod, a Majesty, an Arch-Hierophant, then, one simply does not transform oneself.

One has to make a judicious analysis of his own life. Before beginning the work in the Great Work, it is convenient to review our own life through Meditation. But without hiding anything from ourselves.” - Samael Aun Weor
