Silver - Argentum 47
As one gazes upon the realms of Luna, her essence appears as the elegance of sylvan silver. Her subtle form entices all that know her. She is the divine nectar flow, the merry maiden goddess of the nocturnal realms, and the flowbringer of all life on Terra.
She is the matriarchal mother of matter.
Silver is the most electrically conductive of all the elements and provides the conduit for the largest and swiftest vortex currents residing on our planet. Silver is the crucial intersection that is formed between air and water. Her energies empower the heart and lungs of our bodies, literally. Her energies empower the emotions of Sol.
Not only has this precious metal has been used for millennia by mankind as a monetary medium, it has also been used for the adornment and artistic expression of human beauty, especially when it is used in the making of jewelry and other related baubles. Silver is also used in a pragmatic and technological sense to capture the essence of the enigmatic expression of the feminine aesthetic when it is literally used as an essential component in the construction of a television or movie screen. It is also used in mirrors that allow divine princess maidens to gaze upon their beautiful reflections.
This gleaming metal is also the most thermally conductive of all metals. Therefore, its role as an intermediary of energy between the elements of air and water is more than justified when its ability to transfer energy is logically examined and scientifically acknowledged. Modern science is just now discovering that the trace amounts of silver that are naturally present in the body actually serve an important biological role in the overall functioning of the human biosystem.
As of now, some research has shown that trace amounts of silver do interact with harmful free copper (a neurotoxic form of copper found in the body). It is speculated that silver might play a role in effectively dealing with this imbalance. Likewise, copper is known to aid in reducing the level of silver toxicity that occurs when there is excess silver present in the body. This inverse relationship between these two metals in the human body may demonstrate the intimate association that exists between these two metals as the lady metal of the moon sometimes argues bitterly with the copper goddess of the thyroid serpent.
The basic essence of silver is that of conductivity. The central location of this spherical energy center makes such conductivity a critical and necessary function of this metal. When this metal is used in practical technological purposes, one of its primary roles is reflecting light. This type of behavior can also be viewed as highly conductive in nature, due to the facilitative nature of this phenomenon.
Another key role in the natural function of this metal is the passive type of osmosis that is seen constantly in nature and the sciences. The first type of osmosis that is encountered within the realms of the lunar essence is the ability of the lungs to withdraw oxygen from the atmosphere and transfer it into the liquid blood without any energy being required in the process. A similar feature is when the beauty that is reflected from the silver within a mirror, movie screen, television screen, or monitor is then reflected into the eyes of a respectful beholder. This perceiver then experiences artistic, aesthetic, and/or scientific inspiration due to the new ideas that are stirred up within the imagination as the beholder drinks in the beauty of the vision that is presented.
Terra and Luna
Terra’s surface is mostly covered with water. There are two main bodies of land. Luna is Terra’s only known satellite and completes an orbit approximately every 27.3 days. The land on the surface of Terra is populated with lakes and rivers. In order to survive, the human species must have this fresh water that has little or no salt. The water found in the vast oceans and seas that cover approximately three-quarters of Terra’s surface contains large amounts of salt. The land regions on the surface are also covered with mountains, hills, valleys, plains, forests, deserts, and rainforests.
Luna controls the tidal flow of Terra, and its orbit is tidally locked with Terra’s so that its orbit coincides with its rotation. Thus; it is always presenting the same half of its spheroid shape to the residents of Terra’s surface at any one time. The side of Luna that faces Terra is composed mostly of Maria (the darker, lower regions of the moon’s surface), where it is believed that water may have once existed. The surface of the far side of Luna is comprised of land areas known as Terrae, or highlands. Since the axial tilt of Luna is only one and a half degrees, some of the deep craters in Luna’s polar regions are permanently shadowed and may contain ice.
The gravitational force of Luna is responsible for the ebb and flow of Terra’s tidal currents. This phenomenon occurs due to the fact that the water on the side of Terra that faces the moon is more attracted to the gravity of the moon than it is to the center of Terra. Thus, the oceans are stretched into an ellipse with Terra in the center and the two large areas of elevated sea levels occurring at the points nearest and furthest from Luna’s pull. Since Terra is continually spinning on its axis, the waters of Terra’s oceans are constantly rushing into these always moving areas of elevated sea level. This process is how Luna affects the waters of Terra.
Terra also has an ozone layer that filters out the biologically harmful UV radiation that emanates from Sol. This UV filter allows for more biological beneficial conditions to occur on Terra. Also, Terra’s axial tilt is 23.4 degrees from the perpendicular of its orbital plane. This tilt is at least partially responsible for the changes in Terra’s four seasons that permit an abundance of biological life in her oceans, on her surfaces, and in her ever-changing winds.
Representing the spherical energy of alchemical silver on a biological level is the heart chakra, which is centered around the region of the cardiac plexus where the trachea bifurcates near the arch of the aorta. This energy sphere includes the heart, the lungs, and the thymus gland. This area is the place where the air is taken by the lungs, so the negative feminine electron energy from the oxygen in the air can be removed and transferred into the blood. The heart then takes the blood and pumps it into all of the various locations of the body.
The heart chakra is also called the Anahata (notice the etymological connection between the words Anahata and heart) chakra and its Sanskrit spelling is...
This biological energy sphere is represented by the Sanskrit letter...
and contains twelve petals represented by the twelve Sanskrit letters...
Some of the most interesting action in this region of the human anatomy occurs in the alveoli of the lungs where passive diffusion occurs. This is a passive process that requires no energy. The oxygen from the air in the lungs is diffused into the waiting blood cells, and the carbon dioxide from the deoxygenated blood is released.
The thymus is an also an interesting organ that is the silver chakra's representative member of the endocrine system. Even though its function was unknown by Western science until only fifty years ago, it was known by the ancient Greeks that it grew smaller as the body aged. Modern science is now aware that the thymus is where lymphocyte precursors from the blood marrow are transformed into thymocytes and then eventually become T-lymphocytes.
The heart is the primary organ associated with this region and it is not passive. This organ actually begins to function about three weeks after the zygote is formed and continues to do so until the biological life-force has completely left the body. The muscular contraction activity that occurs in this organ (the heartbeat) is the most important thing that occurs in the human body and is absolutely indispensable for the continuation of the life process as we know it.
Due at least partially to the growth of breast tissue in the region, the silver energy sphere is almost always associated with feminine attributes. Terra and Luna are usually given lady-like traits when they are anthropomorphized by poets and philosophers. The most popular of these anthropomorphications is the title of “Mother Earth” that is often given to Terra. Also, the Gaia theory of Terra being a living entity sovereign unto herself with an intelligence and conscience all her own is further evidence that the ancient Hermetic wisdom has always managed to remain within the collective psyche of humanity.
Summary of Esotericon Data
The active diurnal currents of this chakra are represented by the 4th Tarot trump (Emperor) and the name of the 4th letter Daleth/D of the ancient alphabet, and the passive nocturnal frequencies of this chakra are represented by the 18th Tarot trump (Moon) and the name of the ancient letter Tsadi. The centered currents of the heart chakra are expressed by the 11th Tarot trump (Strength) and the name of the ancient letter Kaph/K. The names of these ancient letters that are expressive of the energies of the heart chakra possess the meanings of "arch," "pendulous," and "side."
The right-handed energies of the heart chakra are represented by the 4th united pair of symbols (Emperor - Daleth/D). The emperor that is depicted in the image of the 4th Tarot hieroglyph wields the royal sceptre in his left hand (in the Noblet deck) and this is symbolic of the emotional control that he needs to maintain in order to serve in a proper manner. His primary function as Emperor can be best described as "deciding." The name of the 4th letter of the ancient alphabet possesses the meaning of "pendulous."
Thus, the Emperor trump is the natural extension of the "divine vision" concept that is expressed by the 5th united pair (Pope - Heh/E). By letting his mind swing back and forth between the arguments of both sides, the Emperor is better able to decide on the best path to be taken. The sceptre that was held in the left hand of the Pope trump is now in the left hand of the Emperor. Instead of the central figure serving as a catalyst for divine inspiration of the two short-haired children, the central figure is now responsible for considering two sides of an argument so that he can make the best decisions for the empire.
The left-handed frequencies of the heart chakra are expressed by the 18th united pair (Moon - Tsadi). The name of the letter Tsadi means "to take a side" or "left side." Since the letter Tsadi is a sibilant, the etymology between the name of this letter and the word side is quite obvious. The central figure of the 20th trump (Judgment), which is the clothed angel with the trumpet, is taken to the next level and expressed as the sun in the 19th trump (Sun) and is then moved up yet another level and expressed as the moon in the 18th trump (Moon). The drops that were present in the 20th and 19th trumps are still present in the 18th trump. The moon now serves as a type of mediator between the two sides along with the lobster, which is the species (along with all other crustaceans) that is most sensitive to the tidal pull of the moon since they are ocean dwellers that walk on the ocean's floor. Thus, they feel the tidal pull more than swimming creatures that do not have the resistance to the tidal flow by being grounded.
The two children in the Sun trump are now two canines that are opposing each other on opposite sides of the dry spot (that appears to have been cleared by the lobster at the lower central portion of the image) in the nearby body of water. This dry spot is only depicted in the Noblet version of the Marseilles Tarot and does not appear in the Dodal and other later versions of the Tarot. The multi-colored wall of bricks in the Sun trump has now been transformed into two bastions that appear on opposing sides of the image. It could be reasoned that each canine is associated with the nearest bastion, which further express the concept of opposing sides.
Thus, the two short-haired children in the Sun trump that are searching for divine inspiration to fulfill their emotional void find a cause. They are now opposing forces fighting for opposing empires. These opposing empires of the Moon trump are symbolized by the bastions on either side of the image. These bastions were created from the bricks of pride and honor that were represented in the wall found in the image of the Sun trump of Mars, the war god of the iron chakra.
Thus, the right-handed side of the heart chakra denotes making a decision as the pendulum swings over both sides while the left-handed side of the heart chakra denotes the overall concept of two opposing sides and how this phenomenon is further strengthened by the energetic essence of the left side.
The Arch of Strength
Therefore, the balanced center currents are expressed in the essence of the 11th united pair (Strength - Kaph/K). The image of the 11th trump shows a man controlling the massive strength that lies within the beast by holding its mouth (shaped like an arch) open. The name of the 11th letter of the ancient alphabet means "arch." Thus, the basic shape of the crescent moon of the Moon trump can be perceived as a sign from the heavens that allows for humanity to perceive the geometric design that provides the great strength displayed in the image of the Strength trump. It is also important to note that the basic shape that is created by the swinging pendulum is also in the shape of an arch. Therefore, the basic essences of the Emperor, Strength, and Moon trumps all express this basic geometric conceptualization.
The arch is the architectural design that gives tremendous strength to buildings and other structures. It also allows for great bridges to span giant chasms. Thus, the arch allows for there to be connections between the two opposing sides. Peace is possible between two opposing factions when the strength of the arch is employed, so that a common connection can exist between the two sides. Greater peace is also possible in an individual when the design and beauty of the arch allows for there to be a far greater degree of balance between the masculine and feminine aspects of an individual.
The trees that were used in the suspension of the Hanged Man trump can now used to create arches to span the two opposing sides of the diurnal Apollonian positive energies and the nocturnal Dionysian negative frequencies. The enlightened individual uses the natural strength of the arch to create a bridge that spans the chasm between these two polarities. Thus, the divine revelation of the Hanged Man is carried to the next level by employing the most powerful geometric design in the cosmos in order to restore the genetic balance that was removed from our species many thousands of years ago.
In the ancient legends of Wotan, the god was suspended upside down for nine days. He then had the divine vision of the runic alphabet. It is highly possible that the names of the twenty-two characters of the ancient alphabet are actual source of this myth. Therefore, correct knowledge of this divine vision would lead the individual down the proper path when seeking to elevate one's true Kundalini energy.
