The 18th path


After a long break we met as a Sodality again and did the 18th path between Tiphareth and Binah, the first one that touches the celestial triangle. It was, I think, one of the most potent ones we ever walked together. Tzadkiel and Michael made appearances to one of us directly, and two of us in dreams after the fact. In the Sangreal system (and some say in the inner order GD as well) this path is marked by the Hanged man as opposed to the Lovers. As always this attribution makes much more sense to me. The sacrificial king of Tiphareth meets the restriction of Binah, almost like the moment of sacrifice frozen in time.

Much to absorb about that one.

So what Tarot deck is this card from? It reminds me of Orryelle's work...
