This is the second of our four-session examination of the Tetragrammaton (the ineffable four-letter name of God) as it relates to the Tree of Life and the court cards of the Tarot.
On the Tree, the second letter of the Tetragrammaton, Heh, is associated with the Sephirah Binah and also with the four Queens of the Tarot. We will revisit this sphere, whose title means "Understanding," and discuss how it applies to the Tarot Queens.
Want to geek out? The Tetragrammaton is the ineffable four-letter name of God. It is comprised of the Hebrew letters Yod, Heh, Vav, Heh, often transcribed by scholars as Yahweh or Jehovah. The Tetragrammaton is astoundingly rich in symbolism. YHVH is considered by some Talmudic scholars as having been derived from the Hebrew verb HVH הוה, "to be, to become." Alternately, some scholars argue that the name arises from the metatheses of its root letters: HYH היה: "He was"; HVH הוה: "He is"; and YHYH יהיה: "He will be." Very relevant to the process of manifestation symbolized by the Tree of Life!
