Description of the Card of the 6th Arcanum: “INDECISION”

One finds the disciple standing in the Waters of Life in front of a triangle with the vertex pointing downwards.  His left arm is crossed over the right.  

All of the above signifies that the disciple is fallen; that he feels a greater attraction towards Medusa (the Psychological "I") who is located to his left.  To his right one finds a female Master .  

This Arcanum is called “Indecision” because the disciple does not know which path to decide upon.

In the upper part is a Hierarch of the Law with a bow taking the form of a triangle with the vertex pointing upwards.  He points his arrow at the head of the Medusa, in keeping with the axiom:

“THE MEDUSA MUST BE DECAPITATED”.

Each figure presents to the neophyte a different path.  The Path of the Left and the Path of the Right.  The arrow of Justice points against the Path of the Left.

 -From Ch.6 of The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of the Tarot and Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor

 

ESOTERIC SIGNIFICANCE of Arcanum 6

Arcanum Six is the Lover of the Tarot, signifying Realization.  The human being is found between VICE and VIRTUE, the VIRGIN and the WHORE, URANIA-VENUS and MEDUSA.  One finds that one has to choose this path or the other.

Arcanum № 6 is enchantment, equilibrium, the loving union of Man and Woman.  The terrible struggle between Love and Desire.  Here we find the Mysteries of the Lingam-Yoni.  This is the interlinking.

In Arcanum № 6 is the struggle between the Two Ternaries, it is the Affirmation of the Internal Christ and the Supreme Negation of Satan.  Arcanum № 6 is the struggle between the Spirit and the Bestial Animal.  The number Six represents the struggle between God and the Devil.  This Arcanum is expressed in the SEAL OF SOLOMON. 

The upper triangle represents KETHER, CHOKMAH and BINAH; the resplendent Dragon of Wisdom (Father, Son and Holy Spirit); the lower triangle represents the Three Traitors, who form the antithesis of the Divine Triad, and who are the Demons of Desire, of the Mind, and of Ill-Will, who betray  the Internal Christ moment to moment and are the foundation of the Ego (Judas, Caiaphas and Pilate); this lower triangle is the Black Dragon.

-From Ch.6 of The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of the Tarot and Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor

 

INITIATIC SIGNIFICANCE of Arcanum 6

The SEAL OF SOLOMON is the expression of Arcanum № 6.  The Star of Bethlehem is the Seal of Solomon.  The six points of the star are Masculine.  The six indentations which are formed between each point are Feminine  (in summary the Star has 12 Rays).  Six masculine, six feminine.  In these are summarized and synthesized the mysteries of the Arcanum A.Z.F. (Sexual Magic).

The Seal of Solomon, the Star of Christmas is the perfect symbol of the Central Sun (the Cosmic Christ, Perfect Multiple Unity.)  The God-Child can never be born in the Heart of Man without the splendor  and life of the brilliant STAR OF CHRISTMAS.  One must work with the Arcanum A.Z.F. in order to be able to incarnate it.

Summarized within the Seal of Solomon are all of the Zodiacal Proportions, the 12 Rays of the brilliant Star crystallize through Alchemy into the 12 Zodiacal Constellations.  Found written in the Seal of Solomon are the intimate relationships which exist between the Zodiac and the invincible Central Sun.  The Sexual Genesis of the Zodiac is represented in the Seal of Solomon.

The V.M. of Light, Hilarius IX, speaking of the brilliant Star, said:

“It is the basic form of all crystallizations, and the schematic model of all blooming.  Its two triangles which unite or separate love are the shuttles with which one weaves or unravels the ineffable mystery of Eternal Life. 

“Above, the Most Holy Eternity which acts as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”

“Below, its counter part with the power which governs, the power which liberates, and the power which executes.”

“I am the resplendent Morning Star” exclaims John, the ‘beloved of Christ’, upon receiving into his own hands the Venustic Initiation.

“And thus each time that the Eternal Geometrician fixes his attention upon a point in space, from that point arises the glorious star announcing the birth of a new State of Consciousness, the Archetype of a Being, a globe, a star, a Sun.” (Fourth message of the Avatar Ashrama.)

The superior triangle in the Seal of Solomon represents the Immortal Eternal Triad.  The inferior triangle represents the three traitors who are within us:

1st: THE DEMON OF DESIRE.
2nd: THE DEMON OF THE MIND.
3rd: THE DEMON OF ILL-WILL.

These are the Three Evil Friends of Job, the three assassins of Hiram Abiff:

JUDAS, CAIAPHAS, PILATE: CHRISTIAN SYMBOLISM. 
APOPI, HAI, NEBT: EGYPTIAN SYMBOLISM.
SEBAL, ORTELUK, STOKIN: MASONIC SYMBOLISM.

These three traitors live in the mind, are within ourselves.  Remember that Dante represents Lucifer as being in the center of the Earth and having three mouths, and within each one of his mouths there is a traitor.  The Bible cites these Three Traitors in the Revelation of Saint John, (16: 13-14):

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.”

These Three Spirits in the form of frogs are the Traitors who betray the Internal Christ from moment to moment, and who constitute the foundation of the re-incarnating Ego, the “Psychological I”, the Satan which must be dissolved in order to incarnate the Internal Christ.

In the center of the two triangles of the Seal of Solomon one finds the Tao Cross, the sign of the infinite.  Both signs are Phallic (Sexual).  The Soul finds itself between the two triangles and has to decide upon one path or the other, that of Light, or that of Darkness and the problem is absolutely sexual.

The key is found in the Sacred Serpent, in the Rooster who represents the I.A.O., the Verb, the Word.  There is the Tempting Serpent of Eden, the Serpent of Darkness which forms the horrible tail of Satan; and there is the Serpent of Copper which Moses entwined upon the Tau, that is to say, the Sexual Lingam; that which healed the Israelites in the desert. 

The dozing Serpent, coiled three and a half times in the Church of Ephesus, the Serpent must come out of its Church in the Muladhara Chakra and ascend through the spinal column in order to convert us into Angels, if it descends towards the Atomic Infernos of Man we then become Demons.  Now you will understand why the serpent of the Caduceus is always double.

When the student spills the semen during his practices with the Arcanum A.Z.F., he commits the crime of the Nicolaitans who work with the Maithuna in the Ninth Sphere but spill the semen, they use that system in order to make the serpent descend, impelling it to the Atomic Infernos and forming the tail of Satan.  This is how man becomes a Demon.

I remember Krumm Heller who taught White Tantrism, but his son taught Black Tantrism; practices of Maithuna with the spillage and loss of the Seminal Liquor, he became fascinated with that doctrine and became a Demon, with a tail and horns on his forehead.  Many were the students who were led astray by the son of Krumm Heller; he was someone who was sincerely mistaken, who went from here, saying that the Great Law took him.

The Alchemical Weddings mean the PERFECT MATRIMONY.  The Alchemist must not only kill Desire, but also even the very shadow itself of the horrible tree of Desire.  It will serve no purpose to renounce sex without previously having worked and fabricated the Solar Bodies and achieved the SECOND BIRTH, then one renounces it. 

First one must work with the Third Logos, the terrible Forge of Cyclops; then one works with the Second Logos, Hercules; and lastly with the First Logos: The error of monks and nuns is to renounce sex without having fabricated the Solar Bodies; the result is that they are to be found in Limbo, dressed in rags, one must be dressed with the Wedding Garment in order to be able to enter the Kingdom of the Heavens.

In the Eleusinian Mysteries the couples danced in order to mutually magnetize themselves.  Nature must be imitated in everything; that is, one must TRANSMUTE THE ENERGY.  In the Temple of the Sphinx the book of the Laws of Nature is studied, this is followed by a test, called the Ordeal of the Sanctuary and upon passing it, the student is given a ring with the Seal of Solomon (which must never be touched with the left hand) and which gleams with great force in the Internal Worlds.

In works of High Magic a magic circle must be traced which will have to be sealed with the Seal of Solomon.  Medallions and rings of the Seal of Solomon can be made with the 7 metals.  The Seal of Solomon should be utilized in all works of invocation, and in practices with the Elementals.  The Elementals of Nature tremble before the Seal of the Living God. 

The Angel of the Sixth Seal of the Apocalypse is now reincarnated in a feminine body (SHE IS A SPECIALIST IN THE SACERED SCIENCE OF JINNAS).  In the Bible Revelations 7:1-3 it says:

“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD (the Seal of Solomon), and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, (the 4 Archivists of Karma who control the four points of the Earth with the Law), to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”

A period of time was needed in order for people to study the doctrine of Christ and to decide for Christ or for Jahve; for the White Lodge or the Black Lodge.  The Servants of God were sealed upon their foreheads.  The Servants of Satan were also sealed on their foreheads (the mark of the Beast).

THE END TIMES HAVE ALREADY COME, AND WE ARE IN THEIR MIDST.  THE “TEN DAYS” HAVE ALREADY EXPIRED (the Wheel of the Centuries, the Arcanum № 10).  Humanity is classified with the Seal of the Living God.  The majority have already received the mark of the beast upon their foreheads and upon their hands.  Only a few have received the sign of the Lamb upon their foreheads.

-From Ch.28 of The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of the Tarot and Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor

 

SYNTHESIS of Arcanum 6:

We have entered the world of Willpower and of Love.  In order to enter the amphitheatre of Cosmic Science one must steal the Fire from the Devil.

THE LOVER MUST STEAL THE LIGHT FROM THE DARKNESS.

Sexual Magic must be practiced intensely with the spouse.  The Flaming Sword of Eden must be reconquered.

-From Ch.28 of The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of the Tarot and Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor

 

The Sixth Arcanum: ARCANUM 6

Beloved brethren of my soul: We are now going to study the sixth Arcanum of the Tarot.  Beloved, remember that indeed and without any doubt, the two interlaced triangles of the Seal of Solomon, which join or separate love, are the two shuttles with which the ineffable mystery of eternal life in the loom of God is woven or unwoven.

The upper triangle symbolizes Kether (the Father who is in secret), Chokmah (the Son) and Binah (the Holy Spirit of each Man).  The lower triangle represents the Three Traitors of Hiram Abiff.  Those three traitors are inside of us.

[1] The first traitor is the DEMON OF DESIRE.  That traitor lives within the Astral Body.
[2]The second traitor is the DEMON OF THE MIND. That traitor lives within the Mental Body.
[3] The third traitor is the DEMON OF ILL-WILL.  That traitor lives within the Body of Willpower (Causal Body).

The Bible cites these three traitors in the Apocalypse of Saint John in Revelations: 16: 13-14:

V.13: “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet”

V.14: “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great Day of God Almighty.”

The three traitors constitute the reincarnating Ego, the psychological "I".  The Satan that must be dissolved in order to incarnate the Interior Christ, which is constituted by KETHER, CHOKMAH, BINAH.  The superior Triangle is the resplendent Dragon of Wisdom.  The inferior triangle is the Black Dragon.  The sign of the infinite or the Tau Cross is found in the center of the two triangles.  Both are Phallic (sexual) signs.

The soul is found between the two triangles and has to decide between the White Dragon and the Black Dragon.  Such a dilemma is absolutely sexual.  The clue is found in the serpent.  The rooster’s legs of Abraxas are made by the double tail of a serpent.

The tempting serpent of Eden exists as well as Moses’ Serpent of Brass [Nachash] interlaced around the Tau, in other words, entwined around the Sexual Lingam (the phallus); the Yoni is the Uterus.  Normally the serpent is enclosed within the Chakra Muladhara (Church of Ephesus).  The serpent sleeps in that Coccygeal center entwined three and a half times.

The serpent must inevitably leave from its Church.  If the serpent rises through the medullar channel we convert ourselves into angels and if the serpent descends we convert ourselves into Demons.  Now you can comprehend why there are always two serpents around the Caduceus of Mercury.  The sexual force is the Hilum of the Gnostics.

When the students spill the Cup of Hermes during their practices with the Arcanum A.Z.F. they commit the crime of the Nicholaitans , which used a system in order to make the Serpent descend.  This is how the human being is converted into a Demon.

The complete and positive development of the Serpent is only achieved by working with the Philosophical Stone within the Sexual Laboratory of the Practical Alchemist.  The superior triangle is the center of the Alchemist’s Microcosmos and the Alchemist’s Macrocosmos.  The sign of the Mercury of the Secret philosophy (the Ens Seminis) cannot be missed in the center of the triangle.

Man and woman must work with the Sun and with the Moon, with the Gold and with the Silver (sexual symbols) in order to perform the Great Work.  Nevertheless, this work is very difficult because the male goat of Mendes (the Black Dragon) always tries to make the Alchemist fall sexually.  It is urgent to work with the four elements of Alchemy in order to realize the GREAT WORK.

The ALCHEMICAL Macro-Cosmos is illuminated by the Light; this is the superior triangle of the Seal of Solomon. 
The ALCHEMICAL Micro-cosmos is in the shadows, in the region where the souls fight against the Black Dragon.  It is precisely in the Microcosmos, represented by the inferior triangle, where the entire work of Alchemical Laboratory must be performed by us. 

The marvelous Microcosmos and Macrocosmos Alchemical plate (Illustration from Chimica Basilica Philosophica) represents the man and the woman working with the Sun (the symbol of the Phallus) and with the Moon (the symbol of the Uterus).  In that Medieval painting, two men together or two women together do not appear.  (THAT IS A CRIME AGAINST NATURE WHICH ORIGINATES THE FILTHY VAMPIRE).

The tenebrous ones justify their crimes against Nature, thus, the Law punishes them by separating them from their superior triangle forever.  This is how they roll into the abyss.  The mysteries of Lingam-Yoni are terribly Divine and cannot be altered.  The Lingam can only be united with the Yoni; this is the Law of the Holy Alchemy.

The ALCHEMICAL Weddings signify, as a matter of fact, the PERFECT MATRIMONY.  The Alchemist must not only kill desire, but moreover, he has to kill the very shadow of the horrible tree of desire.  Sacred Dances between men and women were performed in the Mysteries of Eleusis along with love and the music of the centers in order to enchant the Serpent.  Then, the dancers of the temple were clean from the filthy venom of desire.

All kinds of Sins are forgiven, except the sins against the Holy Spirit.

“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man does is without the body; but he that commits fornication sins against his own body.” (1st Corinthians 6: 18)

However, fornication does not pertain only to the physical body; it is also related to thoughts, emotions, words and animal sensations.

In the mysteries of Eleusis, the couples danced in order to mutually magnetize themselves; then while dancing, the couple (man and woman) together attained Ecstasy.  The bio-electromagnetic interchange between man and woman cannot be replaced by anything; this is a gigantic, grandiose and terribly divine power.  God shines upon the perfect couple.

If you want in depth Self-realization remember this Alchemical Aphorism:

“Nature must be imitated in everything. 
Nature enjoys Nature. 
Nature dominates Nature.”

The Task of the Alchemist is to search for the occult and ancient knowledge and to perform the Great Work in his Sexual Laboratory.  The Great Work is difficult, it signifies many years of experiments, terrible sacrifices and tremendous difficulties.

There exists a Transmutator agent (the Philosophical Stone), a Heavenly influence (cosmic religiosity), diverse Astral influences (esoteric astrology), influence of letters, numbers, correspondences, and sympathies (Kabalah).

The Sacred principles of Alchemy are:

[1] Unity
[2] A Pair of Opposites (MAN, WOMAN, ACTIVE, PASSIVE)
[3] Trinity (ACTIVE, PASSIVE, NEUTRAL)
[4] The final  principle are the elements: (FIRE, AIR, WATER, [AND] EARTH)

The entire work of the Great Work (the Magnus Opus) is synthesized in the Seal of Solomon.  The six points of the star are masculine.  The six outer obtuse angles that exist between point and point are feminine.  TOTAL: The Star of Solomon has Twelve Rays.  Six Masculine, and Six Feminine.

The Star of Solomon is the perfect symbol of the Central Sun.  All of the Zodiacal measurements are found summarized within the Seal of Solomon.  The whole Sexual Genesis of the Zodiac is hidden in the Seal of Solomon.  The inner relation that exists between the Zodiac and the invincible Central Sun is found in the Seal of Solomon.  The Twelve Rays of the brilliant star crystallize by means of Alchemy in the twelve zodiacal constellations.

When the student enters into the Temple of the Sphinx he studies the GREAT BOOK OF NATURE, where all of the cosmic Laws are written.  Indeed, very few are the ones who can open the book and study it.  The Ordeal of the Sanctuary is very terrible.  Very Few are the Human Beings who have succeeded in passing such an Ordeal.

A Precious Jewel: (The Seal of Solomon) A RING FILLED WITH INEFFABLE LIGHT is granted to the one who Victoriously passes the Ordeal of the Sanctuary.  The neophyte who touches the ring with the left hand inevitably loses it.  Another explanation of the Seal of Solomon is the following:

Above: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Below: the power that governs (the Intimus), the power that deliberates (the Mind), and the power that executes (the Personality).

When the power of deliberation and the power of execution become rebellious, they are insubordinate against the governor (the Intimus) and then the outcome is failure.  The three traitors usually take possession of the powers of deliberation and execution.

The Bodhisattvas usually receive messages from the superior worlds.  Ignoramuses confuse the Bodhisattvas with the Mediums of Spiritism, ie “chanellers”.  There exist the Medium and the Mediator.  The Medium is Negative, but the Mediator is Positive.  The Medium is a vehicle of the tempting Serpent of Eden.

The Bodhisattva, the Mediator, is a vehicle of the Serpent of Brass that healed the Israelites in the Desert.  Great Masters use to dictate messages through the lips of their Bodhisattvas.  People do not understand this and mistake the Mediators with the detrimental Mediums of Spiritism.  People allow themselves to be carried away by false appearances.  Within the Seal of Solomon all the Positive and Negative forces of UNIVERSAL MAGNETISM are found represented.

In the works of High Magic, it is necessary to trace a circle around us.  This circle must be totally closed, interrupted by the Seal of Solomon.  The Gnostic Brethren can manufacture the Seal of Solomon with the Seven Metals.  You can make medallions and rings with the Seal of Solomon.  The Seal of Solomon must be utilized in all of the works of invocations, and in the practices with Elementals (as we have already taught in Arcanum 4 of this series of lectures on Kabalah).  The elementals of Nature tremble before the Seal of the living God.

The Angel of the Sixth Seal of the Apocalypse has reincarnated at this time within a feminine body (THIS ANGEL IS A SPECIALIST IN THE SACRED SCIENCE OF THE JINNAS).

Arcanum six (6) is the lover of the Tarot.  Man between vice and Virtue.  Arcanum six is Enchainment, Equilibrium, Loving Union of Man and Woman, the terrible Struggle between love and Desire, the Mysteries of the Lingam-Yoni, Interlinking.  

In Arcanum Six of the Tarot is the struggle between the two Ternaries.  Arcanum Six is the Supreme Affirmation of the Interior Christ and the Supreme Negation of Satan.  Watch and Pray.

-From Ch.6 of Esoteric Course of Kabalah by Samael Aun Weor
