G = 10
The eleventh month, directly following Fall Equinox, was
assigned the letter G and the number 10, which is the number of physical manifestation.
The worlds of Spirit and of Matter move close to one another at this time of year, with
boundaries so fragile there is interpenetration bewteen the worlds, and spirits easily
manifest to mortals. We have learned to appease these spirits, or ghosts, disguised as our
own children on the festival of Halloween. In Mexico this day is celebrated as the Day of
the Dead, or "The Feast of all Souls".
The Hebrew letter associated with this month is Lamed, the "ox
goad", which recalls this the time of year
as that when animals are herded down from summer pastures. Darkness has overcome the
Light, the Dark Star prevails over hir Bright Twin, the Sun, but the shift is as yet
imperceptible. Everything seems in precarious balance, dancing on the razor's edge of
Fall. The associated Tarot Trump is Atu VIII, Libra, Lady of the Balance, weighing Life
and Death upon her scales. The path of the Lady of the Balance on the Tree of Life is 19 ~
1 + 9 = 10 ~by the Least Number method of Qabalah. This, the eleventh month is
symbolic of the eleventh Sephira of the Tree of Life, Dašth, which is the passage into a
magically potent parallel universe ~ Universe B ~ which is ruled by
the Dark Star, Sirius.
