This topic is considerably elaborated in a very important document entitled Polygons and Polygrams. There are a number of drawings to illustrate each point made.

THE MAGICAL SQUARES OF THE PLANETS

They are formed of the squares of the number of the planet, arranged so as to yield the same number each way. The number of the sum of each column of figures and the number of the total of all the number of the squares are also especially attached to the planet. For example the number of the planet Saturn is 3, square 9, the sum of all columns vertical, horizontal and diagonal is 15. The total sum of all numbers is 45. These numbers are then formed into Divine and Spirit names .

THE SOLID GREEK CUBICAL CROSS


 

 

It is the admission badge for the Path of Tau, and is composed of 22 squares which answer to the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet.

 

THE SOLID TRIANGLE OR TETRAHEDRON

This figure is also known as the Pyramid of Fire. It is the Admission Badge for the Path of Shin, representing the simple Fire of Nature and the latent or hidden Fire.

The three upper triangles (note figure is in 2 dimensional space) refer to Fire - Solar, Volcanic and Astral. The lowest or basal triangle represents the latent heat.

 

THE GREEK CROSS

This Admission Badge for the Path of Resh has thirteen squares. It is referred to the Sun in the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac, arranged in triplicities.

 

 

 

THE CUP OF STOLISTES


It is the Admission Badge to the grade of Practicus. It is referred to the Tree of Life as shown in the diagram. It embraces nine of the Sephiroth exclusive of Kether.

Yesod and Malkuth are referred to the lower triangle the former to the apex and latter to the base. Like the Caduceus, it furthers represents Water, Fire and Air, but in a different combination. The Crescent refers to the Waters above the Firmament, the sphere to the Firmament, and the basal triangle to the consuming Fire, which is opposed to the Fire symbolized by the upper part of the Caduceus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE SYMBOL OF MERCURY

On the Tree of Life it embraces all the Sephiroth but Kether. The horns spring from Daath (knowledge) which is not, properly speaking, a Sephirah, but rather a conjunction of Chokmah and Binah.

 

 

MEDITATION NUMBER FOUR

Let the Practicus meditate upon the Symbols of the Rhomboid and the Vesica.

Let him seek out their meanings and correspondences.

Let him contemplate the symbol Mercury and the Number 8.

Let him now learn to control his emotions, on no account giving way to anger, hatred and jealousy, but to turn the force he hitherto expended in these directions towards the attainment of perfection, that the malarial marsh of his nature may become a clear and limpid lake, reflecting the Divine Nature truly and without distortion.

Let him identify himself with the Powers of Water, considering the Water Triplicity in all its aspects, with its attributions and correspondences.
