The Astronomical and Biological Spherical Energy Centers of Kundalini

Tin - Stannum 50
Jehovah Father who art in heaven.
Jove Pater, the god of the sky and the god of thunder.
The etymology between these two expressions of deity should be abundantly clear, especially when it is realized that the word Jupiter is derived from the Latin words Jove Pater. Thus, Jehovah Father and Jupiter are expressing the same concept and the same living entity that is commonly known as the planet Jupiter. To the northern tribes, the planet Jupiter was known as Thor, the god of thunder (in the same way that Jupiter was the god of thunder). The etymological link between the words Thor, thunder, and tin should be quite apparent. This mighty storm god of the heavens is two and a half times larger than all of the other planets combined. The mighty masculine force that is the planet Jupiter also resides within the lumbosacral plexus, which is commonly known as the tailbone chakra.
The alchemical metal associated with Jupiter (according to a vast number of ancient alchemical writings) is stannum and is commonly known as tin. It is a silvery substance and is the most tonally resonant of all metals. The etymological similarities between the words tin, tone, and tune should be apparent. Some of the earliest known mines of tin were in Britain. In fact, the etymology of the island itself is derived from this element’s name. Tin is resistant to corrosion and is used to coat numerous other metals for this very reason. However, its most important use is its ability to strengthen copper and form the mighty alloy known as bronze. Bronze is the one of the strongest and most durable alloys known to man. Only steel (iron combined with smaller amounts of carbon) is stronger; however, steel is far more brittle than bronze. The tin needed to produce bronze became scarce three millennia ago, so the civilizations at that time gradually switched to iron and steel in order to compensate for the loss.
This metal of Jupiter is also a trace element that is necessary for the proper biological functioning of the human body. As a trace element, it is primarily found in the intestines, although it is also present in the lungs and other vital organs of the body. Although the current level of scientific advancement has not fully grasped all of the various subtleties involved with the element of tin and its biological role within the human body, it has been shown to play a part in sustaining proper hair growth and has been added to the list of biologically essential minerals.
The primary essence of alchemical tin is the facilitation of the lower vibratory frequencies of the true Kundalini energy originating in the root chakra of alchemical lead to ascend into all of the upper energy centers of the human body. Generally speaking, the vibratory sensibilities of this energy center are more prevalent with females of the species and androgynous males (especially those with long hair). This nature of Jupiter is expressed in the ancient tale of Samson, who lost the essence of Jehovah (Jove Pater/ Jupiter/Yahweh) when his hair was cut. This role of the human hair as amplification of the true Kundalini energy present within the human body is detailed in the vows of the Nazarite that are presented in the sixth chapter of the book of Numbers.
When one realizes the basic qualities of tin and its superior resonance frequencies, it becomes far easier to understand the facilities of the human body that allow for the hair growing from the scalp to increase the vibratory sensibilities that deal with not only human hearing, but also with the overall vibratory essence within the entire human body, especially the advanced vibratory energies of Venus (copper) that are naturally synchronized with the vibrations of Jove. It is this sensitivity that is more prevalent in the nocturnal hours that is the source of the power of bronze (an alloy made from copper and bronze). When these pantheons that were built around the united Venus and Adonis/Adonai (an alternate expression of Jove used in the ancient texts) currents were last prevalent on the planet, the sensitivities of these currents were far more expressive within the human species as a whole. However, as the balance shifted to the expression of the diurnal flow found with the energies of Mars and Mercury, the nocturnal currents were diminished as the diurnal nature of the Iron Age progressed more and more to the forefront. So much so, that vibratory energies of the Bronze Age were easily suppressed by the patriarchal nature of the Iron Age.
It now becomes rather apparent why the long-haired separatist movements, including the Nazarites, the Pythagoreans, and the Essenes were obliterated by the Roman Empire. Because of the gradual decline of the vibratory bronze currents of Venus and Jupiter, these separatist movements that actually knew how to successfully raise their true Kundalini were eventually made extinct as substitute teachings (filled with fallacy and misinterpreted metaphors) were spread throughout the Roman world. These false teachings promised the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven without requiring long hair, sobriety, and celebacy. Fewer and fewer humans became capable of raising their true Kundalini levels, and the vast oppression of these currents in the Western world began. This oppression launced a dark age that would last for over a thousand years as the sober long-haired ascetic was replaced by the drunken bald monk of the Roman state religion that was violently spread by the military might of the Roman empire.
However, the Mongolian tribes were not deterred by this natural decline of the nocturnal vibratory forces and managed to severely damage the Western world on two separate occasions. The first attack was with Attila in the fifth century, and the second was several hundred years later with Genghis and Kublai Khan as the Mongolian empire grew into the largest land empire known in modern history. The very reason why the Mongolian tribes were so successful in their war endeavors was due to their sensitivity with the nocturnal vibratory forces. This sensitivity was developed in the high altitudes of their homeland as they gained greater and greater prowess with the vibrations of the bowstring. The Mongolian horseback archers were highly accurate with their bows (even when mounted on a steed in motion) and were a mighty military power that easily overcame the inferior forces surrounding them.
The heavenly body of Jupiter is the astronomical manifestation of the tailbone chakra of tin.
It has over fifty named moons with more than a dozen that have yet to receive an official title. The mighty Jovian sphere revolves around Sol every 11.82 years and this creates a 398.9 day synodic period in which Jupiter appears to move in a retrograde manner about one zodiac constellation length to the east each time it reaches opposition. This twelve year retrograde cycle is the basis for the outermost portion of the Oriental zodiac, which designates a particular animal for each year of this twelve year cycle. Thus, in Oriental astrology, Jupiter is known as the “year star.”
There is also a powerful orbital resonance that occurs within the very core of Jupiter's vital essence. This phenomenon is known as the Lacrosse resonance, and occurs between the orbital ratios of the nearest three of Jupiter’s four outermost moons. These four moons of Jupiter are very unique and are far larger and far more colorful than all of the other moons within our solar system (the outermost moons of Saturn being the only exceptions). These four moons (also known as the Galilean moons), in order from nearest to farthest, are Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto.
The Lacrosse resonance is the orbital symmetry that occurs in a geometrically precise fashion between the nearest three Galilean moons. For every four rotations that Io makes, Europa makes two rotations, and Ganymede makes one. This four to two to one ratio causes the three moons to have an elliptical orbit, since they receive the same gravitational pull every time they orbit Jupiter. In musical terms, this unique resonance produces two perfect octaves stacked upon each other. In addition, the Galilean moons possess very bright and colorful textures suggesting more complex energy fields both residing within and emanating from their essence. Combine the additional tidal and gravitational energies inherent in the Lacrosse resonance with the fact that the Galilean moons are four of the largest and most colorful moons in the solar system, then one instantly recognizes the sheer complexity that exists with this massive heavenly energy sphere, and why it was worshipped as the ultimate divinity in the patriarchal belief systems that originated in ancient Rome and Greece. Some astronomical scholars have gone so far as to suggest that Jupiter with its planetary-like moons is a type of star system unto itself.
There are also four rings that are wrapped around Jupiter. They are the Io plasma torus and three rings bounded by the moons Adrastea, Almathea, and Thebe. The origination of the plasma in the plasma torus occurs when neutral atoms (formed from the immense volcanic activity on Io) in the cloud surrounding Io are ionized and subsequently carried along by the Jovian magnetosphere. After these plasma atoms in the torus reside there for about forty days, they journey towards the planet Jupiter and become part of its magnetosphere by inflating it from within.
The Io flux tube is an electric current that connects Io to Jupiter's upper polar atmosphere. This flux tube produces auroral glows at Jupiter's poles and in Io's atmosphere as well. If fact, when Io is visible to Earth, the radio signals received from the Jupiter system are greatly increased and can even exceed the radio signals that Terra receives directly from Sol.
When one analyzes the Galilean moons that orbit Jupiter, it is very easy to draw direct corollaries to the solar system and even go so far as to say that Jupiter is a mini solar system unto itself. Jupiter would be the sun. Io would be Venus, not only because of its placement, but also because of the extreme volcanism that makes it very similar to Venus. Europa would be Terra, once again, not only because of its position outside of the orbit of Io, but also because of its blue green texture, which has caused many to speculate that it contains water like Terra does. Ganymede would be Jupiter, due not only to its position but because of its massive size as well, since it is the largest moon in the solar system. Callisto (the fourth Galilean moon) would then be Saturn. The numerous corollaries between the Solar and Jovian systems are astounding.
The central core for this spherical energy center resides within the lumbosacral plexus. This energy is further enhanced and amplified by the bones of the pelvic region and lower spine, as well as the legs and the feet.
Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body defines this spherical energy center in chapter nine: "The three basic elements of the lumbosacral plexus are the anterior divisions of the lumbar, sacral, and coccygeal nerves The first lumbar nerve is connected by a branch from the twelfth thoracic. This plexus is often divided into three parts - the lumbar plexus, the sacral plexus, and the pudendal plexus.
The lumbar plexus is formed by the loops of communication between the anterior divisions of the first three and the greater part of the fourth lumbar nerves; the first lumbar often receives a branch from the last thoracic nerve. It is situated in the posterior part of the Psoas major, in front of the transverse processes of the lumbar vertebræ.
The anterior divisions of the sacral and coccygeal nerves (rami anteriores) form the sacral and pudendal plexuses. The anterior divisions of the upper four sacral nerves enter the pelvis through the anterior sacral foramina, that of the fifth between the sacrum and coccyx, while that of the coccygeal nerve curves forward below the rudimentary transverse process of the first piece of the coccyx. The first and second sacral nerves are large; the third, fourth, and fifth diminish progressively from above downward. Each receives a gray ramus communicans from the corresponding ganglion of the sympathetic trunk, while from the third and frequently from the second and the fourth sacral nerves, a white ramus communicans is given to the pelvic plexuses of the sympathetic."

Summary of Esotericon Data
The right-handed (masculine diurnal yang) essence of the tailbone chakra is expressed in the Lovers trump (the 6th trump), which is paired with the name of the letter Vav/V - the 6th letter of the ancient alphabet. The left-handed essence (nocturnal yin) of the tailbone chakra is represented by the Judgment trump (the 20th trump), which is paired with the name of the letter Resh/R - the 20th letter of the ancient alphabet. The centered currents are expressed by the 13th trump (the Death trump) of the Tarot, which is paired with the name of the 13th letter of the ancient alphabet, which is Mem/M. These three united pairs of symbols express the meanings of "connect," "neediness," and "mortality." Thus, the basic essence of the tailbone chakra of Jupiter is that of creating and maintaining a foundational structure upon which the edifice of the human body can be erected and subsequently maintained.
The masculine diurnal currents of the tailbone chakra are expressed by the Lovers trump and the name of the letter Vav/V, which has the meaning of "connect." In the ancient texts, the letter by itself functions as the most common linguistic connector of all; it is the conjunction and. The Lovers trump clearly displays two lovers who are connected not only by the arrows of Cupid, but also by the sacred vows of matrimony. Thus, the theme of joining two parts in order to create a greater whole is aesthetically expressed within this symbolic hieroglyph and the name of the letter Vav/V that is paired with it.
This united symbolism is the next step that follows the concepts expressed by the 7th symbolic pair (Chariot - Zain/Z), which symbolizes the ideas of masculine attraction and feminine seduction. The next logical step would be to solidify the initial erotic connection and enter the sacred vows of matrimony. This type of attraction/seduction elevated into a holy connection can also be realized on an individual level because these two opposing forces of the masculine and feminine energies are present within every individual of the species and may be joined together in many harmonious ways.
The replication expressed in the 21st symbolic pair (The World - Sin/S) is taken to the next level with the 20th symbolic pair (Judgment - Resh/R) that expresses the concept of "neediness." This expression is especially relevant when one considers the neediness of the newborn child depicted in the Judgment hieroglyph. The couple and their offspring are nude and depicted in an extreme state of poverty (neediness). One should also note the etymological similarities between the two words nude and need. Therefore, the meanings of the name of the letter Resh/R are directly associated with the birth and the new beginning of life, which is the logical continuation from the concept of mirror-image replication that is expressed by the 21st united pair (World - Sin/S).
The feminine nocturnal frequencies expressed by the 20th pair (Judgment and Resh/R) are expressed with a clothed angel playing a trumpet and drops of some type of liquid that are not falling from the heavens, but instead are upside-down and would be ascending towards the heavens if one were to assume that these drops of liquid were in motion. These "drops" could also be rays of light because the artwork of the Noblet tarot is rather primitive, and certain details of these images are hard to identify correctly. The banner on the trumpet features a cross that could be interpreted as being symbolic of the concept of "intersection" and "connection," which would be a further extension of the symbolism found in the 6th united pair (Lovers - Vav/V).
The primary connection, however, between the Lovers trump and the Judgment trump is the inverse relationship of the nude and clothed figures depicted on these ancient hieroglyphs. The angel is nude in the Lovers trump and clothed in the Judgment trump. The married couple is clothed in the Lovers trump and nude in the Judgment trump. Therefore, these two pairs of united symbols would combine their meaning logically in order to support the symbolism that is expressed by the 13th united pair, which is the "Death" trump and the name of the letter Mem/M, which is the 13th letter of the ancient alphabet.
The Trump of Mortality of the Noblet Tarot
Commonly referred to as the "Death card" and often interpreted in readings as a sign of an upcoming death of some sort, this notorious 13th trump of the tarot is paired with the name of the letter Mem/M, which is the 13th letter of the ancient alphabet. The name of the 13th letter literally means "waters." The tense is plural. It is also very relevant to note that there are many words dealing with the concept of water that are created from the biliteral root created from the letters M and R.
When the biliteral root of Mem/M and Resh/R is examined and its basic meaning of "to flow" and the meanings that are derived from this concept (especially the meanings of "water" and "commerce") are considered, it is fascinating to realize all of the terms that there are in modern English denoting these ideas (marine, moor, maritime, marsh, merchant, mermaid, merchandise, menstrual, mire) that are etymologically related to this biliteral root. Even more fascinating is the fact that this trump was named "La Mort" in the Noblet Tarot, which is also etymologically related to the terms presented in the last sentence. All later versions of the Tarot do not place a name on this trump. La Mort means "mortality" in French.
It is also very relevant to examine all of the profound differences that exist between the "Death" trump of the Noblet Tarot and all of the later versions of this trump that follow. First, the individual that is the primary figure depicted in the hieroglyphic icon may not even be the grim reaper or even a skeleton like the later versions depict. Although the artwork is somewhat primitive, a strong case could be made that the individual is nothing more than a gardener in regular clothes holding a scythe. The hat (or hair) on the figure's head (which does not appear to have any resemblance to a skull and looks like a regular head) supports this theory. There is also no black hood or cloak. If this is the case, then the entire symbolism of this card is changed and a vastly expanded meaning emerges.
It is also fascinating to note that in the Noblet deck, the ground upon which the figure stands is not littered with human body parts. There is nothing but plants on the ground along with a single head in each of the lower corners of the hieroglyph. The head in the lower corner on the left appears to be a male wearing a crown and the head in the lower right corner appears to be a female. Also, if the alleged grim reaper is actually a clothed gardener of some sort, then several new interpretations of this trump become possible that allow for a far more logical symbolism that aligns more correctly with the other symbolisms present within the Noblet version of the Marseilles Tarot.
If the figure is a gardener, then the name of the 13th letter Mem/M, which means "waters," could be seen as a being very relevant to the conceptual design that forms the living essence of the centered currents of the tailbone chakra. The gardener and his plants (that combine the masculine and feminine essence symbolized by the two heads in the image) would constantly be in need of water in order to make sure that the soil is in a condition that allows for the best growth for these new plants. The concepts of "connect" and "neediness" found in the Lovers trump and the Judgment trump can now be directly applied to this new symbolism found only in the Noblet version of the "Mortality" trump.
Thus, the concepts of connection that are expressed in the Lovers trump can also be viewed as the connection of the waters to the soil. This idea is confirmed when it is realized that the tailbone chakra is the intersection of earth and water, since the root chakra is the center of the earth element and the navel chakra is the center of the water element in the human anatomy. The connection of the male and female found in the basic essence of the right handed currents of the tailbone chakra provides the masculine yang essence of the right-hand dimension that is needed to begin the new life of not only the married relationship but also all of the children that will be produced from this relationship.
The offspring that are produced from the married connection of the 6th trump are expressed in the yin essence of the 20th trump and the little child that appears before its nude parents. The new child is very in need and is in a state of poverty, which is the meaning of the name of the name of the letter Resh/R that is paired with this hieroglyphic icon. Thus, the centered currents of the "Mortality" trump would be expressive of a garden where the waters of the name of the letter Mem/M are connected to the soil of the "Mortality" trump upon which the gardener stands. The new seedlings and plants are in extreme need and poverty and must be delicately cared for by the gardener.
Therefore, when it is reasoned that the 13th trump is the next step that follows the 14th trump of Temperance that expresses the concept of abstinence and the containment of water so that it does not spill needlessly, there are obvious elements of reason that emerge and present themselves very clearly. The waters from the two vessels carried by the figure in the Temperance trump flow into the waters of the garden of the "Mortality" trump. Thus, the centered energies of an entity's sexual currents that are created and nurtured in the Temperance trump - where the two vessels of water are pouring into each other so that they may grow and develop without being spilled - can now combine freely with the soil of the garden of the Mortality trump, where they can bring about new plants that will eventually grow into trees and large plants that can be harvested by the individual wielding a scythe and made into the trees from which the enlightened Hanged Man will hang.
Thus, the garden that is tended by the central figure of this hieroglyph combines the masculine and feminine energies into a synergistic whole that is expressive of uniting the feminine and masculine currents within an individual that is seeking enlightenment. These waters orginate from the celibacy that is symbolized by the Temperance trump and the vessels held by its central character; these containers retain their liquid essence. This trump of mortality is the next level of the alchemical process that will be continued in the symbolic expression of the Hanged Man trump.
