 BAG = Aries, Taurus, Cancer. This transliterates back into Hebrew as Heh, Vau, and Cheth = 19. It spells out חוה, Chava = Eve, Adam's wife; to manifest, to show forth, to reveal. (These correspondences are taken from Liber D, Liber Sephiroth.)
 Opal = rainbow = Sagittarius.
 (We might as well get used in the beginning to Crowley's terminology. Where other authorities speak of the Tarot Trumps, or the Major Arcana, Crowley uses the Egyptian word Atu. He is consistent in this usage, and for this reason the word is retained rather than to alter it needlessly throughout the commentary to Tarot Trump.)
 19 = Angel L.T.D. of Sagittarius. (L.T.D. means Lord of the Triplicity by Day. In this case it is אהוז = Ahooz = 19. This is one of the several occasions when Liber 777 must be consulted for specific information.)
 19 = Dayah — דיה, meaning, "was black."
 References to Binah.
 Cheth = Fence. Spell this letter as Cheth, Yod, Tau, and it becomes literally a fence. Its number is 418 — a very meaningful number to Crowley, representing the Great Work itself. It depicts the Adept in his chariot drawn by a black and white sphinx, the reconciliation and union of the two opposites.
 Binah = Eve. 19 is the great glyph of the feminine, because it relates to the gematria (numerology) of Eve, the first woman in Genesis (as indicated in note 1) and therefore equates with Babalon.
 Tau = Time = Saturn = Binah.
 That is, must attain to 8° = 3□ which refers to Binah, the sphere of Saturn and, of course, of sorrow and bitterness.
 All are references to Binah.
 Binah absorbs all, as black (Saturn) absorbs all colors.
 Binah destroys knowledge. (It is above Daath — knowledge.)
 (This is another of the innumerable sets of correspondences having their roots in Golden Dawn symbolism. See the essay "On Man, the Microcosm" in Vol I. Golden Dawn, presumably written by Mathers.)
Hands: Mercury, for hand is י, Virgo. Also the two hands are the twin serpents. Eyes: Sun and Moon. The positive and negative, executive currents of the Logos. Nostrils: Mars and Venus. The mouth attributed to Mercury in the usual system, cannot be used in this phrase; for the mouth is one, not two, being the Logos. ears: Jupiter and Saturn. Itself. The Logos is essentially an unity, although manifested through vibration. It is therefore not destroyed with the other objects of knowledge, though its dual modes of expression, the hands, are no longer known apart.
 The elements are hidden in Binah.
 In the light of the Cry of LOE, this passage seems to mean precisely the opposite of its apparent meaning. The whole cry from "Let me dwell" on the preceding page, is an invocation of Binah. It is a foreshadowing of the mysteries of the Crossing of the Abyss.
"For the second time I have beautified those dark Heavens I inhabit builded there for the Holy Mother of all. The shrine of the spirits existed, exists, and shall exist, wherein it is provided that the Babes of the Abyss enthroned." (The Translator suggests that the Enochian verb translated as "existed" is reflexive, with the literal meaning, perhaps, as "created itself.")
 Binah or Nuit = Draco, the Dragon.
 Tiphareth and the sign of Osiris risen, which is the basic theme of the 5° = 6□ (Adeptus Minor grade, The Order of the R.C.)
 Prophetic of the 8° = 3□ attainment. The pillar is phallic, and the salt is the Alchemical Salt of Binah, the Great Sea. See also Liber LXV, The Holy Books, Cap. V, vv. 5, 23, 25. (Sangreal Foundation, Dallas, 1970).
 The completed system of attainment which is made by the 7° = 4□, Adeptus Exemptus.
 The 8° = 3□ may devise a new system of Qabalah.
 One cannot become 8° = 3□ merely by intellectual manipulations.
OCISINI) = LIXIPSP.
LIXIPSP = Cancer, Sagittarius, Earth, Sagittarius, Leo, Gemini, Leo. Transliterated from the astrological signs into Hebrew we have Cheth, Samech, Tau, Samech, Teth, Zayin, Teth, of which the gematria, or total number, is 533. In Sepher Sephiroth, 533 is given as the number for Thani Ha Gadol (Tau, Nun, Yod, Heh, Gimel, Daleth, Vau, Lamed) = Draco Magnus, the Mighty Dragon. This is the symbol of Nuit or Binah. The whole symbolism of this Angel is exactly confirmed through a Qabalistic equation of which the Seer had no idea at the time. (He, the Angel, is above the dispersion and disorder just as Binah is above the Abyss of Choronzon.)
 The four elements unharmonized break up into Choronzon, the Demon of the Abyss.
 Further reference to Binah.
 Typical gesture of Binah.
 Binah being gone, the Seer descends to his normal place in Tiphareth.
