The 22 Hebrew Letters and the 22 Tarot Trumps Represent the 22 Paths of the Tree of Life

The 22 Paths of the Tree of Life Represent the 10 Planets and 12 Signs of the Horoscope

The Hebrew Alphabet May Be Developed from the Harappan Alphabet of the Indus Valley in Pakistan

We can recognise over half of the names of the twenty-two Hebrew letters relate clearly to the astrology, planet or Sign, of their Path on the Tree of Life.  The significance of the other names may simply be clouded by a meaning which has been lost over the last three millennia. 

For instance, the connection between 'a snake' and the Sun is not clear but when we see the images of Ra, the great Sun god of Egypt, with the image of the Sun on his head encircled by a snake, we can recognise there was an ancient connection.  This may be related to the Egyptian eclipse myth
 of Isis laying a magical serpent in the path of Ra.  

The Hindu eclipse myth also involves a great serpent, Rahu, his tail known as Ketu.   It may be the apparent path of the Sun around the Earth, the ecliptic, which all the planets follow surprisingly closely, was pictured as a great serpent in ancient cultures.  So the Hebrew letter teth, a snake, may well relate closely to the Sun in this way.  It would be surprising if it did not have some strong connection.  

With other letters, for instance tzaddi, the fish-hook, the connection to the Aries symbol offers an immediate visual recognition but there are other resonances and connections in this symbol, too.


This symbolism of the Hebrew letters and the Tarot trumps will be explored further in due course as it gives a fascinating insight into the astrology and the whole ancient esoteric understanding which enriches our attempts to reclaim this ancient, precious heritage.
