"AND I KNOW , That kinda love, make a grown man cry"

“Mothcr of all, who bore Love, Aphrodite,
Lamp-bearer, shining and aglow, Sclcne,
Star-coursing, heavenly, torch-bearcr, fire-breather, Woman four-faced, four-named, four-roads’ mistress. Hail, goddess, and attend your epithets,
0 heav’nly one, harbor goddess, who roam
The mountains and are goddess of the crossroads;
0 nether one, goddess of depths, eternal,
Goddess of dark, come to my sacrifices.
Fulfill for me this task, and as I pray
Give heed to mc, Lady, I ask of you.”
PGM IV 2557-2567
Greetings!
Welcome to the discussion on Trump number VI and the impact it has upon us. Now is a time for great triumph for the site because of the “love of wisdom” that has been incorporated into the “main bones” of the gnostic tarot cards site. http://www.gnostictarotcards.com
I particularly like this card because of the Kabbalistic reference to the “male” being crowned by his “feminine” companion. This to me brings up the ideas of Chivalry and the Wisdom or Sophianic tradition. Here we have Eros hitting the knighted one with the arrow through the crown being placed by the feminine “priestess” figure. This is important to realize that he is in a place of service. She bestows upon him nobility and this picture is great as a indication of true love as a service to another while maintaining the sovereignty of one’s self.
The other thing that is being shown here is how the crowned knight is in a place of reverence with his left hand over the heart center. This is one of the universal signs of love and especially connecting to ones feeling self and heart center when being struck by the arrows of the angel of love. It also shows my next point that the “crown” of “wisdom” is placed upon the reverent knight when the crown is penetrated and blessed by Sophia. In the mystery tradition this crown would represent the attainment of the Royal Way. This is exactly the picture being depicted, as a “VAV” this Knight, which can be either male or female in sexual hardware, is taking an oath for the service to wisdom. Being the “link” or the VAV , meaning AND. For this is truly what a lover is. It is the AND . Meaning its not the ONLY or OTHER its an AND. For humanity has lost this place of dignity and sovereignty because it has failed to see itself as royal. The “kingless” one is actually being made KING. This is important because only by the quest of service can true Kingship be attained.
The noble one that is on a quest for knowledge of the CROWN and service to the PRIESTESS is on his way. Toiling whatever land must be toiled, he is ready to take his journey toward danger and treacherous landscapes. This s another depiction of the VAV ready to form into the last HE or the Tifferet center that is on the lowerside of the Lightning bolt. http://www.gnostictarotcards.com/Kabbalah.html . In the change of Gnosis that is taken place by a connection with the Queen, the newly inducted Knight is on its way toward the land of “incarnation” meaning the spark has been given an arrow into the center of the crown and is ready to venture into the lands that Knights go to, wilderness, forest and the unknown. Although taking the journey is dangerous and likely to cause an amnesic effect, the knight bold and brave is willing to risk it.
