The Astronomical and Biological Spherical Energy Centers of Kundalini

Copper - Cuprum 29
The many serpentine forms of the various nervous systems meander all throughout the humanly body. In a similar fashion, the cosmic currents emanating from the volcanoes of Venus wander throughout the heavenly bodies; their cosmic Cytherian triiodothyronine subtly stimulates the metabolism of our solar system. Such is the nature of the cupric serpent of Aphrodite; she is the morning star of the metabolic snake; she is the cosmic throat chakra of Astarte.
At the core of this spherical energy center (commonly known as the throat chakra) is the metal generally referred to as copper. The triliteral stem that is translated as “serpent,” “copper,” and “bronze” in the ancient texts consists of the letters Nun/N, Het/H, and Shem/S. The core etymological component of this triliteral stem is the biliteral root that is composed of the letters Het/H and Shem/S and possesses the etymologically obvious meaning of “to hiss.”
This biliteral root displays a perfect example of poetic onomatopoeia that has been lost in translation over the eons and provides another reason why the original texts of the ancient writings must be examined letter for letter. Therefore, when the initial meaning of “to hiss” is realized, the subsequent definition of “snake” suddenly appears far more logical and aesthetically pleasant. It is also interesting to note that this biliteral root is also used in the ancient texts to denote the meaning of magical power. Thus, the copper serpent is one of the primary instruments used for magic and is one of the primary components of the Ark of the Covenant.
Also known as "The Morning Star," this spherical energy center is symbolically represented with the triliteral stem that consists of the letters Shem/S, Tav/T, and Resh/R. This three letter stem has the basic meaning of “vibration” and can be found in words such as star, sitar, and string. This stem is formed from the biliteral root that is derived from the letters Shem/S and Resh/R. This etymology can also be traced to the word serpent, as well as the many of the ancient names of the goddess force, including the words Ishtar, Asherah, Astarte, and Ashteroth. Also, the etymology is apparent in the word seraphim, which denotes the winged serpents that often appear in the ancient texts.
The alchemical metal of this spherical energy center is copper. Copper is an essential mineral necessary for many enzymatic functions; it is also a necessary component for the production of the thyroxine, which converts to triiodothyronine. This substance is the most abundant thyroid hormone found in the human body and vitally important for proper metabolic functions. This biological interaction of copper with the thyroid gland is another scientific function that is correctly identified by the ancient wisdom that states the direct relationship between Venus and copper. This ancient scientific knowledge can be used as an anchor of stability when an individual is speculating about many of the metaphysical realities that deal with the goddess energies of the planet Venus.
Copper has the second highest electrical conductivity of any metal; silver is the highest. It also has the third highest thermal conductivity of any element with silver being second and diamonds (carbon) being first. These qualities make the metal an invaluable element necessary in the production of numerous physical devices used in our civilization’s technology. Copper is one of the most effective substances used in the making of pipes for plumbing because it does not react with water. This serpent metal is also used in a wide variety of electronic applications such as electromagnets, magnetrons, circuits, CRTs, vacuum tubes, wave guides, etc.
However, in ancient times, cuprum was primarily used as the main component of bronze, which consists of ten parts copper and one part tin. The sacred nature of this alloy is reflected in the polytheistic pantheons of the Bronze Age that worshipped the goddess of the star (Venus, Aphrodite, Astarte, Ashteroth, Ishtar) and her consort, the male lord of the heavens (Jupiter, Zeus, Baal, Jove, Jehovah, Adonai, Adonis). The alchemical metal of the goddess is copper, and the alchemical metal of the male god is tin. Thus, the primary core of the actual pantheon venerated during the Bronze Age was based on a genuine scientific knowledge of metallurgy. Once again, science and religion were not only highly compatible but also extremely interdependent.
This interdependency is primarily found within the basic energies of this specific spherical energy center known as copper because this basic essence is the fundamental source of the intellect's practical employment. As religion is more emotive and empathic in its basic features, science is far more stoic and logical and demands far more objective thinking that is often highly elusive. Within the realms of copper, the more empathic natures of the lower spherical energy centers are reconciled with the intellect of the higher centers.
The main facilitator of this miraculous process is the conceptualization of design and its subsequent application to the emotional needs required by the lower energy centers. Since the emotional needs of the lower centers are almost always highly practical, it is highly natural that the role of copper as a type of higher mediator and facilitator above the basic essence of silver would need some form of pattern creation and design implementation in order to bring about the necessary functions required by the two intermediaries of copper and silver.
Thus, the basic core essence of copper entails the detailed fundamentals of communication and artifice. The copper servant takes the conceptualizations produced by the two higher regions of Sol and Mercury and processes them in such a manner so that they may be used it a pragmatic fashion. In other words, it takes the fundamental logic produced by the higher spherical energy centers and transforms them with the dexterity of the hands and fingers into actual substance.
The very nature of copper is that of application. While mercury allows for transcendental crossings from imaginative realms into the lands of intellectual prowess, copper allows for the actual conversion of the intellectual essence into three-dimensional reality. For instance, the divine golden vision of a persistent researcher being transformed into an equation is a typical example of mercury's transcendental role in the overall creative process. The subsequent device or invention that uses this equation in its basic construction pattern demonstrates copper's primary function in the creative process.
The rotation of Venus is retrograde to that of the other bodies of the solar system and takes approximately 243 days to complete. Due to the slightly longer amount of time that Venus takes to rotate and the slightly shorter time that it takes (224.7 Earth days) to revolve around the Sun, Venus always presents the same face to Terra when then two sisters are nearest to each other. These successive close approaches between Terra and Venus occur every 584 days and give interesting scientific data that suggests an enormously vital interrelation between these two heavenly sisters.
There are two major continents on Venus: the northern continent named Ishtar Terra and the southern continent named Aphrodite Terra. The first is about the size of Australia and the latter is roughly the size of South America. The surface temperature of Venus is estimated to be over 450 degrees Celsius, supposedly hotter than even the surface of Mercury. This extreme surface temperature would also be in correct scientific alignment with the throat chakra of the human body being the center of metabolism and heat production. Further supporting this assertion is the tremendous amount of volcanic activity that is present on Venus.
The biological location of this energy sphere is centered around the cervical plexus, which is located at the back of the neck and also includes all of the cervical nerves, including the brachial plexus, the pharyngeal plexus, the middle and inferior cervical ganglion of the sympathetic nervous system, and the recurrent laryngeal nerve. Other biological components of this spherical energy center include the thyroid gland, the parathyroid gland, and the larynx. This cluster of crucial bodily organs is collectively referred to as the throat chakra. It is the spherical energy center that is responsible for speech, metabolism, heart rate, sweat, and gastrointestinal peristalsis.
The throat chakra is also called the Vishuddhi chakra and its Sanskrit spelling is…
This biological energy sphere is represented by the Sanskrit letter…
There is also a direct etymological connection that is present with the words Vishuddhi and Venus.
Summary of Esotericon Data
The active diurnal currents of the throat chakra are represented by the 3rd Tarot trump (Empress) and the name of the 3rd letter Gimel/G of the ancient alphabet, and the passive nocturnal frequencies of the throat chakra are represented by the 17th Tarot trump (Star) and the name of the ancient letter Phe/F. Finally, the centered energies of the throat chakra are expressed by the 10th Tarot trump (Wheel of Fortune) and the name of the ancient letter Yod/Y. The essential qualities of these three united pairs of symbols express the concept of "action."
The right-handed currents of the throat chakra are expressed by the 3rd united pair of the Empress trump and the name of the ancient letter Gimel. The name of this ancient letter means "to act" or "to do." This type of action is found in the basic symbolism that is expressed in the Empress trump; the Empress provides her noble service to all who abide within her realms of influence. The lady that is the central figure of this image is wielding the royal sceptre in her left hand just like the Emperor that precedes her. However, in her right hand, she is holding the shield that bears the emblem of the eagle. The Emperor that preceded her was not holding the shield; however, the shield bearing the eagle emblem was still in the image of the 4th tarot.
Therefore, it is highly logical to reason that the Empress of the 3rd Tarot trump represents the next level of ascension of the vital essence of the Emperor of the 4th trump. The shield is the primary item that represents this ascension. It rests on the ground in the image of the Emperor trump and is held in the hand of the Empress trump. Also, it is round in the Emperor trump and is shaped like a regular shield in the Empress trump. The eagle shield would obviously be defensive in nature; however, it is merely being held and not wielded by the Empress. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that the symbolic nature of the shield implies that this device is only meant to be employed when absolutely necessary and not at all times. Thus, the potential defensive powers of the eagle emblem shield stand ever ready to protect the mighty Empress of Venus, the ancient love goddess of the copper serpent energies of the throat chakra.
In her passive left-handed state, the ancient love goddess is represented in the Tarot by the Star trump, which is the 17th trump of the Tarot. The ancient name for Venus is the word star, which has a direct etymological relationship to the word serpent. Also the name of the letter Phe/P means "face" and "breath." The meanings of this name are highly appropriate when one considers the fact that the name of this ancient letter is expressive of the left-handed currents of the throat chakra since this is the biological location where the face is located and breath is exhaled. Thus, the placement theories presented in this text are once again confirmed by this exact alignment. Also, similar to the relationship found between the Lovers trump and Judgment trump of the tailbone chakra of Jupiter (the consort of Venus), the right-handed trumps are clothed and the left-handed trumps are nude. The nude lady in the image of the star is pouring liquid from two vessels (one in each hand).
So then, the Star trump of the throat chakra is the next level of ascension from the Moon trump of the heart chakra. The two canines of the Moon trump are now the two vessels that are being emptied of their liquid by the nude love goddess (the symbolism of this action should be quite obvious), and the two brick bastions representing the opposing forces of competing empires have been transformed into two trees. Also, the drops of liquid that were present in the Moon trump are now stars and the central heavenly body at the upper central portion of the Moon trump is now the Sun. The star that is between the goddess and the Sun is flesh colored and would most logically be the star that represents the planet Venus, while the other six stars would represent the other six planets that are visible to the naked eye (this would include the planet Uranus, which is not easily visible to the naked eye but still visible during certain times of the year to the eye of the trained observer).
The Balance of the Wheel
The Wheel of Fortune represents the centered balance of the throat chakra. This image of this 10th Tarot trump features the royal figure with the royal sceptre in the left hand now riding on top of the wheel and two beasts riding on either side of the wheel. The name of the 10th letter of the ancient alphabet is Yod. It means "to cast" or "to act." Thus, the entire symbolism of this trump expresses the concept of actions and the consequences of those actions.
The tenth united pair (Wheel of Fortune - Yod/Y) is directly related to the Empress trump because the image of a seated royal figure found in the Empress trump rides on top of the wheel and holds the royal sceptre in the left hand. The two vessels in the Star trump that have been emptied of their liquids are represented in the Wheel of Fortune by the two creatures on either side of the royal figure. The wheel of the 10th trump is the concept of the arch of the 11th trump that is taken to the next level. The wheel is the arch in its completed state.
In the realms of humanity, the wheel is the strength of the arch carried to the next level. While the arch can support a heavy weight at a fixed location, the wheel can move a heavy weight from one location to another. Thus, the emotional control of the arch allows for an individual to pleasantly thrive in a fixed situation, and the emotional control of the wheel allows for the individual to be able to move from one situation to another and still pleasantly thrive.
Therefore, if one acts with the energies of the right hand and balances the emotions with the royal sceptre, then one experiences the energies of royalty and rides on top of the wheel. If one allows the energies of the left hand to overtake one's being, then one experiences the lustful energies of animalistic passions. However, if one acts with the energies of the centered currents...
...then one becomes the wheel itself.
